ON JAMAICA- I HONESTLY DO NOT THINK THAT THE PEOPLE OR ITS GOVERNMENT REALIZE THE GRAVE DAMAGE IT HAS DONE TO THE DESTRUCTION OF THE LIVES AND CREATIVE GENIUS OF TRENCH TOWN AND ITS GHETTO YOUTHS.

EXCERPT FROM(c) RAS CARDO- R.A.S.P.E.C.T1

WITHOUT PREJUDICE:

The destruction of the lives of our youths is something taken for granted. We often write them off as just being rebellious. This is the easy way out for us because we do not want to listen to them nor to hear their wailings.

In this, run fast, and get rich quick society, powered by the technology we create which will ultimately determine our fate, there is no time for us to be human enough to care about the needs of others.

As adults, we often forget that we were once young and stupid, and yes, rebellious. But in spite of all this, someone cared enough for us to enable us to be here today. It may be our grand parents, or foster parents, or our own birth parents. The fact is, someone cared.

In the poverty that is Trench Town, it is clear to us that those in the upper echelons of society who could help refused to do so.

So, as the churches kept silent, and those in academia at the University of the West indies followed suit, we were left alone to find ways to extricate ourselves from some of the harsh realities of those who wanted to get rid of us.WE CHOSE REGGAE MUSIC, AND IN 1962 THE MOVEMENT WAS BORN.- IN MY BACKYARD.

With my Brethrens and sistrens in the government tenement yards with courage and resilience, against all odds and the chance of losing our lives, we stood strong.

We knew that music could be used as a sender of messages.

When Bob Marley came to join us he saw who and exactly what he needed to perfect himself. We enabled him to forge ahead. He became one of us.also at the risks of losing his life for speaking the truths in music.

Did he not tell you that-” so many friends we had, so many friends we lost along the way”.

He did not tell you about the rural parish where he was born. He said- ” we come from trench town.”.

The loss of lives of so many people especially the youths is most remarkable and tragic with epic proportions.

As those of us who now are still alive can recollect, it is with grave sadness and grief in a most post traumatic fashion.

My archives and clear picturesque indelible memory has kept those gone before us alive and present.

They all speak from the graves of lives cut short by the callous uncaring disregard for their worth to the country of their birth- JAMAICA..

IF I MUST GIVE A MESSAGE TO JAMAICA FROM THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE IT IS THAT – THE LOSS OF THREE DECADES OF PEOPLES BY THE SENSELESS SLAUGHTERING OF INNOCENT LIVES WILL SOMEDAY BRING THE TRUE AND ONLY RIGHTEOUS JUSTICE OF JAH UPON THOSE RESPONSIBLE AND UPON THEIR CHILDREN.

THE JUDGEMENT OF JAH IS CERTAIN. IT WILL BE SWIFT AND TOTAL. NONE SHALL ESCAPE.

THE LOVE OF OUR COUNTRY HAS WAXED AND WANED OVER THE YEARS, BUT WE HAVE NEVER BEEN AFRAID TO SAY THAT WE COME FROM TRENCH TOWN , JAMAICA.

HOW CAN THE SONS OF THE SOIL FORGET ABOUT THE SALT OF THE EARTH.

I HAVE WRITTEN IN R.A.S.P.E.C.T1,  WHAT WE CAN LOOK FOR IN THE YEARS TO COME.

JAMAICA’S HEALTHCARE- ESPECIALLY FOR THE POOR, THE ELDERLY, THE VERY YOUNG – HAS NEVER BEEN VIABLE- PEOPLE ARE DYING FROM PREVENTABLE DEATHS- BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF EMERGENT HELP AND RESOURCES. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. I WILL NOT BE SILENT.

Excerpt from Ras  Cardo-(c)  Diagnostic Discussions- Education for a healing of the nation. JAMAICA IN PERIL. NO END IN SIGHT TO THE SUFFERINGS OF THE PEOPLE.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE:

TO SAY THAT THE HEALTH-“CARE” -SYSTEM IN JAMAICA EXISTS IS A MISNOMER FOR IT WOULD BE A MISREPRESENTATION OF TRUTH, AND THOSE WHO TRULY KNOW WHAT GOES ON IN THE SYSTEM COULD RIGHTLY ASK- HEALTHCARE SYSTEM FOR WHO, AND WHERE?

We are now living in a time and an age when those who would wish to keep the -STATUS QUO- in full control over all things which makes the lives of the poor, impoverished, and uneducated, miserably long or tragically short, will eventually be exposed to all and sundry.

NO MORE BURIED INFORMATION TO KEEPING THE PEOPLE IN IGNORANCE, AND ENSLAVEMENT.

Jamaica has had a very long history of struggles and continues to do so today even in the light of…

FERGUSON MISSOURI 2014-WHATS THE MESSAGE TO THE YOUTHS IN AMERICA- I SEE A TRENCH-TOWN- NO WOMAN, NO CRY- THE SYSTEM.

EXCERPT (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE;

CAVEAT: DO NOT READ BEYOND THIS STATEMENT IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO FEEL NOR UNDERSTAND THE HUMAN CONDITION.

DO NOT READ THIS, IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO FIND LOVE WITHIN YOU. DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO DEAL WITH TRUTH AND THE REALITY OF TRUTH. IF KILLING PEOPLE IS YOUR SPECIALTY, THEN DO NOT READ THIS. IF YOU LACK THE ABILITY TO REASON PEACEFULLY, DO NOT READ THIS.

EVERYTHING WRITTEN HERE IS TRUE AND IN CARING ABOUT THE LOSS OF LIVES OF OUR PEOPLE.

SO, WHY ARE OUR CHURCHES SO SILENT?

WHY ARE OUR WELL TO DO AND THOSE IN ACADEMIA SO SILENT?

FOR WHETHER YOU ARE WHITE, BLACK, HISPANIC, JEWISH, INDIAN, ITALIAN, YELLOW OR BROWN, THERE IS BUT ONE CONNECTION TO US ALL- WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE AS TO WHAT COLOR OF SKIN WE WERE BORN IN.

My Brethrens from the – REGGAE Group- Black Uhuru  some years ago sang these words- ” Questions more than answers, more than I can say, takes more than a lifetime, to say how we feel today”.- DON CARLOS.

I have written so many times that I see a Trench -Town all over America.

There are so many reality cases to speak about, but let me just mention the most recent to memory- The Trayvon Martin case, The New York City Police- death of a black man by a choke hold to the neck, Shooting of a 10year old youth in Cleveland Ohio by the police – the news reported later that the youth had a toy gun, and much more.

The pattern and reality shows- White cops killing black youths. No matter how you look at it, this is the reality of the message.

How many cases have you seen in media where- Black cops are killing white/ or black youths?

WHAT IS THE SUBLIMINAL MESSAGE HERE? What are the underlying factors?

TO WHAT EXTENT DOES THE TRAINING OF COPS TELLS THEM TO SHOOT AND KILL SOMEONE?

And almost all these cases, the cops are placed on what they call-“administrative leave” – some with/without pay- some cases pending some- “GRAND JURY INVESTIGATION.”

And so we await the Decisions of the Grand Jury, only to find that the killers go free.

NO, WOMAN, NO CRY- as we watched, again, the mothers and families of slain Black youths sees- NO JUSTICE IN THE SYSTEM.

THE CRIES OF THE PEOPLE, THE WAILING OF THE PEOPLE, THE SORROW OF THE PEOPLE- BOTH WHITES AND BLACKS MARCHING FOR JUSTICE.

AMERICA 2014- HOW FAR HAVE WE COME, AND WHERE DO WE THINK WE ARE HEADING?

IT IS MOST DIFFICULT TO SUSPEND EMOTIONS WHEN YOU ARE DEEPLY HURTING INSIDE.

And so, you now see the news media doing a calm and collected interview with the killer, far removed from the reality of the day the actual incident and tragedy occurred.

You see an interview in and by which the person/persons so accused has the time and coaching so necessary to evoke public sentiments to their side of the credibility scale.

You are not saying that what the accused said or did is true, what you are saying is that the -DEAD- has no chance to being heard, no chance to rebut the testimony.

So, you look to the system- the Grand Jury- to find you justice.

But you forget that the Jury selection system- VOIRE DIRE-as they call it in legal circles, is a very tricky process.

In the Ferguson Missouri case, the Grand Jury consisted of nine whites and three blacks. What is the message? In a city that is predominantly black, they could only find three black persons from the jury pool? The selection process is suspect.

Not yet erased from our minds were the pains and revelations from the Trayvon Martin case in which the jury received wrong instructions leading to the reality of what we have seen.

For all those who have spoken to me freely about these tragedies and have expressed their silent concerns of truth- people of all color, class, race, creeds, ethnicity, and religions- I here write so that the world may see the humanity in all of us.

For whatever propels us to act as we do, in the end we will  all suffer the consequences. I HAVE SAID BEFORE- WE ARE WHAT WE BECOME.

IN AMERICA- HERE IS WHAT THE BLACK YOUTHS SEE IN THIS TIME:-

1. They see a system in which anything black is viewed as bad and treated with disdain, fear, not of importance, loathing, and condescension.

2. The only thing black and good is-Lots of money in a bank account.

3. By mere observations alone, and the day to day existence, they have enough examples as to the injustices done to their people.

4. They see hopelessness, and no longer will listen to those of their people who give lip service and yet act as sell -outs to their enemies.

5. They will trust no one- including those who wear a badge saying- ” we serve and protect”. They ask- “Serve and protect who?’

6. As far as the police are concerned- in the eyes of the black youths in the ghetto-  THEY WILL RUN FROM, RATHER THAN RUN TOWARDS A COP WHO IS APPROACHING. But, do you really know why they will run?

THEY RUN BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT IF THEY REMAIN, THE COPS- WHITE OR BLACK- WILL TRY TO HARASS THEM- WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE DOING ANYTHING WRONG.

AND WHEN THEY RUN, THE COPS GLADLY GIVE CHASE, RESULTING IN THE REALITIES WE HAVE SEEN, INCLUDING DEATH.

KEEP IN MIND HERE THAT MOST OF THIS OCCURS WITH UN-ARMED YOUTHS.

AND THERE ARE COPS WHO HAVE A TRACK RECORD OF HARASSING CERTAIN YOUTHS OF THE GHETTO – WHITE AND BLACK.

SO, IN OUR SYSTEM- HOW DO WE TRAIN AND EDUCATE OUR COPS?

FOR THOSE WHO ARE UNABLE TO KEEP THEIR COMPOSURE, LET ME REMIND THEM THAT THIS IS NOT WRITTEN TO POINT FINGERS NOR TO ACCUSE ANYONE.

LET HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN, CAST THE FIRST STONE.

THE YOUTHS KNOW THAT EVEN IF YOU SEE A WHITE COP ALONG WITH A BLACK COP IN A PATROL CAR, THE COP WHO IS WHITE WILL MOST LIKELY BE IN CONTROL OF WHATEVER SITUATION GOES DOWN.

SO, WHY ARE THERE  ONLY FEW BLACK COPS IN A PREDOMINANTLY BLACK NEIGHBORGHOOD? AND IF ITS THE WHITE COPS WHO ARE WRITING THE FINAL REPORTS, BEING THE FINAL ARBITERS OF JUSTICE, WHAT IS THE MESSAGE?

I CAME TO AMERICA WITH THE MISSION TO HELP IN THE SERVICE OF THE PEOPLE. I HAVE NEVER STOPPED DOING THAT. WHAT I DO TO HELP PEOPLE CAN HAVE ME ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD DOING THE SAME AND MORE.

I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE- THERE ARE STILL SOME GOOD PEOPLE LIVING IN AMERICA- BUT DON’T LET THE CONTRADICTIONS GET YOU DOWN.

FROM THE STREETS OF KINGSTON JAMAICA, AND THE GHETTOES OF TRENCH TOWN AND OTHER PLACES, I SPEAK TO THE YOUTHS WHO SEE THEMSELVES AS -SHUT-OUTS OF A SYSTEM WHICH WANTS TO GET RID OF THEM.

AMERICA’S YOUTHS HAVE SPOKEN TO ME- WHITE AND BLACK- IT IS FOR THEM THAT I MUST WRITE AND DELIVER THESE TRUTHS TO THE WORLD WHO SEEMS TOO BUSY TO LISTEN AND TO HELP.

I HAVE LISTENED TO THEM. I HAVE OBSERVED THEM. I HAVE CRIED WITH THEM. I HAVE GRIEVED WITH THEM. THERE ARE SO FEW OF US TO CARE FOR SO MANY.

THE SIGNALS IN AMERICA SPEAKS MANY CONTRADICTIONS AND ILLUSIONS, CAUSING DISTRUST AND DISILLUSIONMENT.

WE HAVE NOW CREATED A SET OF DISINCLINED YOUTHS WHO WILL /AND DO NOT KNOW WHO TO TRUST. THEY NOW HAVE THEIR OWN MANIFESTO. THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE BECOME- AMERRYCA.

IT IS STILL MY HOPE THAT MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE EDUCATION WILL EVENTUALLY HEAL THIS NATION.

JAMAICAN DOCTORS ARE SOME OF THE BEST IN THE REGION-SO, WHY ARE THEY NOT ABLE TO DELIVER THE BEST HEALTHCARE TO THE PEOPLE? I, RAS CARDO, WANT TO KNOW! WHY IS ACCESS TO ADEQUATE RESOURCES BEING DENIED THEM? WHY ARE THE POORER AREAS STILL UNDER SERVED?

Excerpt Continuation-(c) Diagnostic Discussions by – RAS CARDO REGGAE.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

I MUST WONDER- IS THE HEALTH OF JAMAICANS NOW REDUCED TO THE TRUTH OF THIS STATEMENT-” THOU SHALT NOT KILL, BUT NEEDS’T  NOT STRIVE TO KEEP ALIVE?”

Over the years I have worked with some of the best healthcare practitioners that Jamaica can produce. I have seen them worked with very limited resources in trying to provide what “adequate” help they can under the circumstances.

ALLOW ME TO MENTION THE NAMES OF SOME WHOM I HAVE WORKED WITH AND HAVE GIVEN THEIR BEST TO HELPING THE PEOPLE . THESE READILY COMES TO MIND- MRS HELEN CLENNON F.S.R.T FROM THE SCHOOL OF RADIATION TECHNOLOGY U.H.W.I.- DR. BATESON, DR. NEVILLE MOULE, DR, MASSON, DR. AARONS,  DR. MICHAEL WOOMING, DR. LEVY, DR WILLIAM MAGNUS, DR, JOHN MCHARDY. DR. MCNEIL-SMITH, DR. DAWES, DR. BETTON, DR. AGGREY IRONS, DR. LALJE, DR. ROGER WONG, DR, VALENTINE-ETC. ETC. also several of the friends I went to schools with- NAMES TOO NUMEROUS TO MENTION AT THIS TIME.

I often wonder just how much longer can we continue to try and help the people with dwindling and often absent resources. I am speaking of years past which never seems to get better.

WE ARE NOW IN THE DIGITAL AGE OF HEALTHCARE AND I WORRY ABOUT JAMAICA EVEN GETTING CLOSE TO BEING READY TO FORGE AHEAD WITH DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF DISEASES.

I AM AWARE THAT THERE ARE SOME JAMAICAN- CONNECTED DOCTORS WORKING IN THE USA, UK, CANADA AND ELSEWHERE WHO SHOW A DESIRE TO HELP. I HOPE THEY DON’T GIVE UP ON JAMAICA.

BUT, I KNOW THAT JAMAICANS ARE VERY RESILIENT AND RESOURCEFUL PEOPLE- SOME WHO- AS MY MOTHER WOULD SAY- WILL “MEEKLY WAIT AND MURMUR NOT.”

Now, after all these years of waiting to see things get better for the people, here we are in 2017 asking the same questions as to -WHEN WILL THINGS GET BETTER FOR THE PEOPLE IN JAMAICA- ESPECIALLY THE POOR.

For those who are wondering as to why I would write about this- let me just say, that the health and safety of the people has been my life concern. I AM JAMAICAN, AND HAVE NEVER LEFT MY PEOPLE. I HAVE BEEN SERVING THEM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

For those who have followed my works over the years and online such as at http://www.Newsvine.com,and http://www.Allexperts.com, http://www.Wordpress.com etc.,they would have seen me addressing these issues.

The sick and especially the poor in Jamaica have waited, and waited for good things to come.

Help and healthcare resources are being sent to Jamaica, but it never seems to reach the poor.

SO, MY QUESTIONS BECOME- WHERE DOES IT ALL GO? WHY ARE THE DOCTORS UNABLE TO GET WHAT IS NEEDED TO HELP THE PEOPLE?

IN MANY AREAS, CITY-WIDE AND RURAL, THERE  ARE NO AMBULANCES TO RUSH EMERGENT CASES TO A NEARBY HOSPITAL/HEALTH FACILITY..

IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT WHERE THE BEST ROADS ARE NOW BEING BUILT IN JAMAICA, YOU WILL SEE THAT THEY LEAD DIRECTLY TO THE FACILITATION OF THE RICH TOURIST RESORT HOTEL AREAS ETC.

IN MANY AREAS OF KINGSTON THOSE WHO SUFFER FATAL INJURIES JUST LIE ON THE GROUND SURROUNDED BY A CROWD OF PEOPLE AND BLEED TO DEATH.

ALMOST ALWAYS THERE IS NO ONE PRESENT TO ADMINISTER ANY KIND OF LIFE SUPPORT TO ANYONE INJURED. BASIC -CPR- KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS IS LACKING.

THOSE WHO ARE RUSHED TO KPH- FOR HELP NEVER MAKE IT. PEOPLE ARE NOW POSTING PICTURES ONLINE SHOWING THE MALIGNANT AND DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS STILL AT THE KPH- KINGSTON PUBLIC HOSPITAL- THE ONLY CITY EMERGENT CARE HOSPITAL IN KINGSTON SERVING THE POORER AREAS.

THOSE WHOM THE POLICE HAVE SHOT NEVER MAKE IT.

BECAUSE OF THE MALIGNANT LACK OF RESOURCES MANY WHO COULD HAVE LIVED END UP DYING.

BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF RESOURCES THE DOCTORS HAVE NO ALTERNATIVES, BUT TO TREAT SYMPTOMS- NOT THE DISEASE ITSELF.

UNFORTUNATELY, I HAVE SEEN  THIS HAPPEN IN SEVERAL PLACES IN AMERICA, SO CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT IT IS IN JAMAICA?

IF THE EDUCATING OF OUR PEOPLE AS TO THEIR HEALTH ISSUES IS AN OBSTACLE, THEN , I AM MOST WILLING TO HELP. IN WHATEVER CAPACITY I AM ABLE, I WILL.

WE CAN EITHER BE A PART OF THE PROBLEM OR BECOME A PART OF THE SOLUTION.

I HOPE THAT OTHERS WILL JOIN ME IN HELPING THE PEOPLE. PEACE!

TO THE GOVERNMENT AND PEOPLE OF JAMAICA- I ASK- WHAT RESOURCES AND FUNDINGS ARE IN PLACE TO TAKE CARE OF THE HEALTH CONDITIONS OF THE PEOPLE? FOR TOO LONG THE MALIGNANT NEGLECT HAS CONTINUED.

EXCERPT FROM -(c)- DIAGNOSTIC DISCUSSIONS- RAS CARDO’S MISSION AND VISION FOR THE HEALTH OF THE PEOPLE.

FOCUS- HEALTHCARE JAMAICA. RISKS VS. REWARDS. I HAVE SEEN THE TRUTH.

WITHOUT PREJUDICE:

When my late great brethrens sang the messages in the conditions of the people, they were targeted by the system and orchestratingly put to death.

The enemies of truth seek and found their weakest areas, then they destroyed them.

Most of the world is now familiar with the names of Bob Marley and of Peter Tosh, but only a handful of people really knew and were in very close contact with these brethrens.

So many lies have been written and propagandized about them by lots of people who never knew them, nor was with them from the begining.

What you hear and will see today are those who will play their music and begin their stories from that point onwards, filled with falsehoods,and deceptively contrived plots so as to appear quite informative and authentic.

THE TRUTH AND FACT IS- THEIR LIVES NEVER BEGAN WITH MUSIC.

THE MESSAGES IN THEIR MUSIC WERE INTENTIONALLY MISCONSTRUED BY THOSE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY WHO FOUND WAYS TO UNDERMINE THEIR IMPORTANCE.I SEE THOSE IN ACADEMIA TRYING DESPERATELY TO CONSTRUCT IMAGES OF WHAT THEY BELIEVE OUR MISSION WAS.

DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF BOB MARLEY’S MUSIC YOU WILL NEVER HEAR PLAY ON THE AIR.

I, RAS CARDO, AM HERE TO TELL YOU THESE TRUTHS IF YOU HAVE THE TIME AND THE HUMANITY TO LISTEN.

Our lives is lived in the service of the people- JAH PEOPLE- THE POOR, THE UNDERCLASS,  THE SICK, THE SUFFERING PEOPLE. ALL RACE, CLASS, AND CREEDS ARE WELCOME TO OUR MISSION.

SO; DENNIS BROWN SANG- “DELIVERANCE SHALL COME.”

PETER TOSH SANG: ‘”TOO MUCH MAD PEOPLE GETTING READY TO EXPLODE, WILL SOMEBODY HELP THEM TO CARRY THIS LOAD”. HE ALSO SANG-“MILLION BABIES SUFFERING FROM MALNUTRITION”

What do you think he was talking about?  Was he speaking about the health conditions of the people? I am sure you  have never seen anyone telling you about this. Do you know why?

GARNET SILK SANG: ” BABYLON, BE STILL WHILE I BLOW THE TRUMPET”

THESE AND OTHER BRETHRENS TRIED TO SEND THE MESSAGES TO THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD ABOUT THE JAMAICAN CONDITIONS. IN THEIR VERY SHORT LIVES. THEY WERE ABLE TO DO SO MUCH BEFORE THEIR UNTIMELY DEATH.

To the very end, they all died as- very brave and courageous soldiers in JAH ARMY.

FOR THE PAST FIVE DECADES AND COUNTING, I RAS CARDO HAVE BEEN THE ONE MAKING SURE THAT THEIR LOVE AND DREAMS FOR THE PEOPLE WILL NOT GO IN VAIN.

FOR REGGAE- I HAVE BEEN AT THE BEGINING FROM THE BEGINING.

I have seen the continued sufferings of my people. I have seen the malignant neglect in the healthcare of my people- especially my – Jamaican people.

SO MANY PREVENTABLE DISEASES- MEDICAL MISTAKES- LACK OF RESOURCES-PUBLIC HEALTH OVERSIGHTS- EPIDEMIOLOGICAL MIS-EDUCATIONS-GO UNABATED FOR TOO LONG..

THE POOR AND ELDERLY WHO GETS SICK DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY NOR RESOURCES TO FLY TO MIAMI USA OR CANADA FOR MEDICAL HELP.

I AM LISTENING TO THE CRIES OF MY PEOPLE AND KNOW THAT THE PRICE OF TWO PANADOL TABLETS SHOULD NEVER  COST $100.00 UNDER ANY CURRENCY, INCLUDING THAT OF JAMAICA.

I WILL ASK AGAIN- WHERE DOES THE HEALTH SUPPLIES SENT TO JAMAICA FROM THE USA, CANADA AND OTHER COUNTRIES GO?

My grandparents have seen it. My parents have seen it. I have seen it. THE POOR PEOPLE NEVER SEE IT.

I WILL SAY THIS AGAIN- SO THOSE WHO CAN HELP MAY DO SO- THAT, THERE IS A SILENT CRY FOR HELP FROM THE POOR PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THOSE IN THE RURAL AREAS OF JAMAICA, FOR BETTER HEALTH ASSISTANCE.

WE NOW HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY TO MAKE THE LIVES OF THE POOR PEOPLE BETTER. WHY IS IT NOT GIVEN TO THEM?

I RAS CARDO SAY THIS: THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SUBSTITUTE TO THE PERSONAL EXPERIENCES I HAVE HAD IN DELIVERING THE TRUTH IN THE REALITY OF MY WORKS FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE PEOPLE. THIS IS THE TRUTH FROM WHICH I SPEAK.

I WILL MAINTAIN MY ENDURING COMMITMENT TO HELPING MY PEOPLE.

My late great mother always said; ” The government does not give a damn about how you live, but they will try to find out just how you died”.

I AM CALLING FOR A SYSTEM OF METICULOUS MONITORING OF THE HEALTHCARE OF THE PEOPLE.

I AM CALLING ON THE JAMAICAN PRIME MINISTER. MINISTER OF HEALTH,THE PARLIAMENT, THE RICH IN THE STATUS QUO AND PRIVATE SECTOR, TO HELP THE PEOPLE.

I AM CALLING ON THE W.H.O- WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION -TO DO WHAT THEY CAN. I AM CALLING ON PARTNERS IN HEALTHCARE- TO DO WHAT THEY CAN.

I WILL BE THAT VOICE FOR THE PEOPLE. MY REGGAE IS TRUTH. TO KNOW TRUTH IS TO LIVE TRUTH. REGGAE SPEAKS OF THE SUFFERINGS AND STRUGGLES OF THE PEOPLE..

DELIVERANCE WILL COME.

JAMAICA HAS SOME OF THE BEST PHYSICIANS AND PROVIDERS OF HEALTH IN THE REGION, SO WHY ARE THEY NOT GIVEN THE HELP AND RESOURCES TO HELP THE PEOPLE?

FOR ALL THOSE WHO ARE AFRAID TO SPEAK- I HAVE HOPE THAT YOU WILL MAKE YOUR CONSCIENCE GUIDE YOU TO HELP OTHERS IN NEED  TO DOING THE RIGHT THINGS.

I WILL LISTS THEIR NAMES INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLECTIVELY LATER.

3. REGGAE IS NOT ABOUT MUSIC. THE MUSIC CARRIES ITS MESSAGE..

4. THOSE WHO TEND TO MENTION  MUSIC AS THE SOURCE AND ORIGINATION OF REGGAE- SHOWS THEIR IGNORANCE IN THE HISTORY OF OUR WORKS. THIS SHOULD ALERT THOSE WHO READ AS TO THE PREVARICATION NATURE OF THEIR PUBLICATION OR PRESENTATIONS.

5. QUOTING ME OUT OF CONTEXT WILL ONLY ADD CONFUSION AND MISLEAD THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO AND HAVE  RELIED ON MY WORKS AND ITS FACT FINDING PROOF, AUTHENTICITY, AND TRUTH FOR YEARS, TO BE DECEIVED .

7. THOSE WHOSE AIMS AND INTENTIONS ARE TO DESTROY, DISCREDIT, DECEIVE, DISMANTLE,, DISUNITE, DISMEMBER, DIS-INFORM, DISCONNECT, AND DISLOCATE OUR HISTORY AND OUR PEOPLE, SHOULD, AND WILL BE OPENLY PORTRAYED AS SUCH. THEY WILL BE EXPOSED FOR WHO AND WHAT THEY ARE.

8.I HAVE CONSISTENTLY WRITTEN OVER MANY YEARS, THE TRUTHS FROM WHICH I NOW SPEAK. IT IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT THE TRUTH IN MY WORKS AS I HAVE WRITTEN BEARS THE INCONTROVERTABLITY IN THE NATURE FROM WHICH IT INITIALLY CAME- NO TWISTS, NO TURNS, NO LIES, NO FALSEHOODS, NO THIRD PARTY VERSIONS, NO HEARSAYS.

9. IF YOU ARE READING SOMETHING WRITTEN WHICH DOES NOT COME FROM THE SOURCE THEN YOU SHOULD ACT WITH CAUTION.

10. WE LIVE IN A TIME WHEN PEOPLE ARE COMING UP WITH MANY CREATIVE WAYS TO DECEIVE AND MISLEAD PEOPLE. BE WARNED.

11. I AM THE KEEPER OF THE ARK OF THE TRENCH TOWN REGGAE COVENANT.

12. FAILURE TO HELP THOSE ON WHOM THE VALUE OF MY WORKS DEPEND AND SUPPORT WILL LEAVE ME NO ALTERNATIVE BUT TO TAKE STEPS NECESSARY TO PROTECT MY RIGHTS AND THAT OF THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE.

THERE IS MUCH MORE TO ALL THIS, BUT I WILL RESERVE AND REVEAL IN A TIMELY MANNER ALL THAT APPERTAINS TO THIS WAVE OF DECEPTIONS BY THE ENEMIES OF REGGAE AND THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE.

I WRITE AND SPEAK FOR THE SAFETY OF THE PEOPLE. (c ) Ras Cardo speaks. All rights reserved globally.
