Responding to Sarah, but on list because hers to me was on list!
You have, unfortunately, mis-read my post regarding Leon Manus.
Possibly you have purposely misinterpreted it, as many persons do when
they don't like something! Neverthless, I did not ijnsult Leon Manus,
nor do I feel I need to do so. I likewise did not say that "older
people aren't worth anything, (nor that ) their views are (not")
worthwhile. I merely said that I wondered why anyone would want to
threaten him with death, and asked what harm he could do. What's wrong
with that? If you think older persons can do harm, that's ok with me.
My question was "what harm could he do?"
Jean Dominique was killed...and that was terrible, but he was not
assasinated. There is a difference between assasination and
killing/murder. I agree with you, the murdering of old persons is
surely terrible, but the murdering of anyone is likewise terrible: old
My comment on the "stealing of the ballot boxes" is not based upon
allegations; but upon fact. The photos of discarded ballots and boxes
at the time of the May election, were true and actual photos, but it
is somewhat important to note that those balllots had already been
counted! That's "yellow journalism" (which has been with us for years
and years!) and geared to lead the less-sharp reader to conclude that
the ballots were stolen before being counted; not so in this case.
The story was investigated.
I think that all the things you "personally think would be nice"
will probably come to pass in the years to come; right now we need to
stand together and work to straighten out the country. My comments in
no way should be taken to infer that I am opposed to campaigning
(another mis-reading of my words!); I merely said that Aristide did
not even need to campaign!
Since it appears that you live in Haiti, why not come and join us
as we continue to sweep the streets and paint the poles and dividers
and remove the garbage; that would be a good first step toward
improving the country! I don't remember anyone doing such things for
other former candidates and/or military dictators; this is being done
for the elected representative of the Haitien people...the
overwhelming majority of the Haitien people.
Come on; join us! "L'Union fait la Force" Ansanm, Ansanm!
