7596: RE: 7585 - "Defernding the King" (fwd)
From: archim <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The title for this subject is "Defending the President".
Richard's posting re: "Defending the King" is unbelievably
interesting and surely proves my point. Just as those who did not have
a crown or a noble title ("Duke de Mermalade, Duchess de Limonade,
Baron de Banane, etc.) during Christophe's reign were the bad ones,
it could well-be that the same situation prevails today in Haiti. Our
President is extremely popular and powerful in a good and kindly
manner (like Christophe), and a lot of persons, hopeful of positions
of royalty simply can't stand it. As a result,they continue to work
to topple the leader because they know they will never be able to have
any respectable position in Haiti as long as Aristide is in place.
There is only one official presidential sash, and it seems that a lot
of jealous persons want it. Best bet, as far as I can see, is to have
some smaller sashes or maybe even smaller crowns prepared, and
distribute them amongst those who have a "royalty fixation".
Maybe President Aristide could make some of our political losers
dukes and duchesses and barons now, give them a sash and tell them to
go back to their castles! (Suggested peerages might be [in Kreyol, of
course]: "Duc de Delma 85"; "Marki de Muso"; "Bawon de Boudon", etc.)
I think I have a couple of extra crowns in my depot!
