JO - We don't need the US
We don't need the US
Thursday, December 28, 2006
I am confused, very confused. I am not sure I am the only one feeling this way, but I am trying to understand the mentality of the Jamaican people as to why they seemingly like to be embarrassed by the United States so many times.
The new US embassy took months to be built and it was constructed with no care whatsoever for the visitors - mainly those trying to get US visas. Nevertheless, no Jamaican, not even the government, has the power to direct them as to how they should build their facility. But we have the power not to use it.
Why must we Jamaicans who are constantly being disrespected by these despicable people behave as if the US is the land of milk and honey? I for one am allergic to this "milk and honey" that the US possesses, and as such I will not be so foreign-minded like many people and act as if I am a parasite that needs the US to survive when in truth that country is the true parasite of the world. If other Jamaicans could open their eyes, all the rubbish that we have been through with the US would be eliminated.
The US fails to realise that its economy was built by immigrants whom they so despise - the same foreigners who put them in the position that they now enjoy and flaunt in their naturally disrespectful manner.
Not only are those people disrespectful and unapologetic about their behaviour, but they have no concern for others. How can we be in our own country and be treated in this manner? We should let them stay by themselves in their building and hear our voices only via the media.
I hope they all know that their apocalypse is at hand and soon that "great nation" will look back at their pathetic and parasitic lifestyle and mourn, wishing that they could have it back.
