I have a small request, and I checked with friends, they want the same thing.
We want the former MinPres and the former MinJust to sit quietly in their corners, lick their wounds, take inventory of what went wrong, and only come out of their holes when they have something positive to say, something that would contribute to the country’ wellbeing.
I listened to two press conferences for a short while, this week. What agony, I turned the radio off.
Arthur Dowers sounded bitter and resentful.
Mike Eman sounded unemployed and desperate.
You had your turn boys, you left a path of destruction, now will you please keep quiet and take some responsibility for the ‘pakete di medida feroz,’ because you left us with a 4 billion debt, maybe 5, and the unfinished Watty Vos Blvd, as a monument to incompetence.
Mike – take a page out of Bill Clinton’s book, get yourself on the speakers’ circuit, that way you can travel, all expenses paid, and blow your own horn around the globe.
I understand that while you allowed every one in your government to ‘prepare for retirement’ you did not. I appreciate that about you. On the other hand, you allowed everyone to prosper on your watch, which makes you guilty by association.
This string of fake news is upsetting. If you recall, some islands in the Caribbean suffered greatly because of last year’s hurricane season. Aruba benefitted from their disaster and we welcomed many more tourists. Things are going back to ‘normal’ now. Other islands are opening up, and we are going back to that normal. But our normal is still fantastic, as far as tourism goes.
Arthur – What happened to you? You were once a positive force. Or maybe it was all paid PR that left the good impression, and what you show now, is the real you. Angry. Disillusioned.
Anyway, as I said, take inventory of what went wrong, and only come out of your holes when you have something positive to say, something that would contribute to the country’ wellbeing, we need all the horses and all the men in times of crisis, all pushing to put Humpty Dumpty together again, after his great unfortunate fall!
