STERILIZING HEALTHCARE- TELL THE PATIENTS(PEOPLE) THE TRUTH. TIME TO SERIOUSLY CLEAN HOUSE(HOSPITAL) AT ALL LEVELS.

EXCERPT (c) DIAGNOSTIC DISCUSSIONS IN HEALTHCARE- RAS CARDO

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE. THE TRUTH MUST BE TOLD.

I SPEAK WITHOUT MALICE OR ENVY TOWARDS  ANY ENTITY.

FOR THOSE WHO WILL READ THIS AND HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THEIR CONSCIENCE, I RAS CARDO SAY- ITS YOUR OWN CONSCIENCE THAT WILL BE JUDGED.

SOME TIME AGO I WROTE ABOUT MEDICAL MISTAKES IN RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY HEALTHCARE. THIS WAS PUBLISHED ON http://www.NEWSVINE.COM.

AS A PART OF THAT ARTICLE I MENTIONED THAT WE HAVE A SYSTEM OVERWHELMED AND OFTEN CONFUSED BY THE TECHNOLOGY AT ITS DISPOSAL.. I ALSO SAID:

WE HAVE PATIENT CARE PROVIDERS NOT ABLE AND NOT PREPARED TO UNDERSTAND AND USE THE TECHNOLOGY SO CREATED.

TODAY, I STAND BY EVERY WORD SO WRITTEN THEN, AND THOSE I WRITE NOW.

SIMPLY BECAUSE IT WAS THE TRUTH FROM MY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND PROFOUND IN DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THE INDUSTRY.

I WILL GO STEPS FURTHER AND SAY THIS AS TRUTH, THAT HEALTHCARE IN THIS COUNTRY HAS OFTEN BEEN TREATED AS- THE SLEEPING GIANT- AROUND WHICH EVERYONE TIP-TOED GINGERLY SO AS NOT TO AWAKEN.

MOST PEOPLE WHO WORK IN SUCH INSTITUTIONS ARE AFRAID TO SPEAK THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT WRONGS THEY HAVE SEEN DONE TO OTHERS.

THEY ARE AFRAID TO BE CALLED- ” WHISTLE BLOWERS”. I AM SURE THAT WE ARE ALL AWARE OF THEIR STORIES AND ILLEGAL FIRINGS.

RECORDS ARE QUICKLY SHREDDED BEFORE EVIDENCE CAN BE ASSESSED. RISK MANAGEMENT CONFERENCES ARE QUICKLY CONVENED AS THE CULTURE PREPARES FOR THE ONSLAUGHT OF THE MEDIA AND INVESTIGATIVE REPORTERS.

AS THE NEWS BREAKS UNTO THE PUBLIC SCENE- A COMMON CRY ECHOES ACROSS THE NATION- ” THE HOSPITAL IS NOT THE SAFEST PLACE TO BE IN WHEN YOU ARE SICK”.

SO, THE QUESTION BECOMES- WHERE MUST THE PEOPLE GO IN TIMES OF DIRE AND URGENT LIFESAVING NEEDS?

WE HAVE ALL BY NOW HEARD ABOUT- NON-SOCOMIAL -INFECTIONS. THESE ARE THE GERMS YOU CONTRACT WHILE YOU ARE IN HOSPITAL. THAT IS, YOU NEVER WENT IN WITH THEM. MOST PEOPLE ARE NOW FAMILIAR WITH THE NAMES OF STAPH. INFECTIONS- MRSA AND VRSA. SOME OF THE MOST DEADLY RESISTANT STRAINS OF BACTERIA.

SO MUCH PREVENTABLE DEATHS OCCUR EACH YEAR IN HOSPITALS WHICH WOULD SHOCK THE CONSCIENCE OF ORDINARY MEN.

FRANKLY, I AM NOT SURPRISED ABOUT THE RECENT CASES OF UN-STERILIZED ENDOSCOPES. IT SHOULD BE NO WONDER THEN THAT SO MANY WILL FORGO HAVING THEIR COLONOSCOPIES AND ERCP’S DONE.

SEVERAL REASONS ACCOUNT FOR THIS: MEDICATION ERRORS, DIAGNOSTIC ERRORS, NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE COVERING CERTAIN SHIFTS, EQUIPMENT FAILURES, INCOMPETENCE OF PROFESSIONALS, PEOPLE SEEING THINGS GO WRONG AND KEEPING SILENT ABOUT IT FOR WHATEVER REASON.

AND LET’S NOT FORGET ABOUT THOSE EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURERS AND THE REPLETE OF -PRODUCT LIABILITY CASES- DRUG MANUFACTURERS INCLUDED.

THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN FUELED BY GREED AND HASTE FOR A VERY LONG TIME AND HAS GOTTEN MUCH WORSE SINCE THE 1980’S- DRG’S AND TEFRA( TAX EQUITY AND FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY ACT.

SOME PEOPLE WILL ” GO WITH THE FLOW” REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE FLOW IS GOING IN THE WRONG OR RIGHT DIRECTION.

IF MOST PATHOLOGIST WOULD OPENLY SPEAK THE TRUTH AS TO THEIR AUTOPSIES, WE WOULD SEE JUST HOW MANY DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENTS DID NOT FIT THE END RESULTS.

YET MOST HOSPITALS BOAST ABOUT THEIR -” QUALITY OF CARE”.

SO FAR, NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO TRULY DEFINE WITH ANY DEGREE OF SPECIFICITY AND EXACTNESS- WHAT QUALITY OF CARE MEANS.

THE TRUTH IS- THE SYSTEM IS A CLOSED ONE- UNTIL SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN IN IT GETS HURT AND DECIDES TO TELL THE TRUTH.

HOW MANY “WORKERS OF CONSCIENCE”- AS I CALL THEM DO YOU THINK LOSE THEIR JOBS BY SPEAKING THE TRUTH?

THOSE WHO CONTROL HOSPITAL HIERARCHY DO NOT WANT THE DIVULGENCE OF TRUTH UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT PATIENT PRIVACY CONFIDENTIAL MEDICAL RECORDS UNDER HIPAA.

THOSE IN CONTROL WILL NOT RELENT. I WOULD OFTEN WONDER WHY IT IS SO EASY FOR THEM TO LIE AND TO DECEIVE PEOPLE, EVEN IN CASES INVOLVING THE LOSS OF LOVED ONES AND EVEN THEIR OWN EMPLOYEES.

SOMETIMES I THINK THEY PRACTICE UNDER THIS SAGE UMBRELLA- ” THOU SHALT NOT KILL, BUT NEEDS’T NOT STRIVE TO KEEP ALIVE”.

IN REGGAE WE SAY- TELL THE CHILDREN THE TRUTH. TELL THE PEOPLE THE TRUTH, AND WHAT TO EXPECT- TRUTHFULLY. DO NOT LIE NOR DECEIVE.

THIS IS WHAT I RAS CARDO WILL ALWAYS PRACTICE IN HELPING PEOPLE. NO APOLOGIES FOR THE TRUTH. NO COMPROMISE. NO WAIVER FOR THE TRUTH. NO DISRESPECT.

NOW, IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO REMEMBER THAT MOST HOSPITALS AND THEIR WORKERS WORK DILIGENTLY TO BE HONEST, TRUTHFUL AND CARING TO SAVE LIVES.

I WILL NOT DETAIL MY YEARS OF EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS HERE, BUT EVERYTHING THAT IS WRITTEN HERE IS TRUE.

TODAY, BECAUSE THE WORLD HAS BECOME MORE OPEN TO SCRUTINY, AND THE TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY IS IN FULL SWING, THOSE WHO AIM TO DECEIVE OTHERS AND TO COVER UP AND  SILENCE THE TRUTH WILL NOT PREVAIL.

TO WORK IN THESE PLACES MEANS THAT YOU HAVE TO COMPARTMENTALIZED YOUR BRAIN IN ORDER TO KEEP YOUR SANITY. BECAUSE THE WORLD IS NOT READY FOR TRUTH ACCEPTANCE.

THOSE WHO WISH TO CONFINE THEMSELVES TO WORK IN SUCH ENVIRONMENTS MUST IN A STRANGE WAY CONVINCE THEMSELVES DECEPTIVELY, THAT WHAT THEY SEE OR HEAR IS NOT REALLY HAPPENING..

MANY PEOPLE OF CONSCIENCE HAVE TO ENDURE THIS BECAUSE OF FINANCIAL AND ECONOMIC CONSTRAINTS. TO THEM, IT MEANS -SURVIVAL- LASTING ANOTHER DAY.

FOR LASTING ANOTHER DAY MEANS BEING ABLE TO SEE AND TO DOCUMENT THE TRUTHS FOR YOUR FACT FINDING REVELATIONS, AND PUTTING FOOD ON YOUR TABLE.

I HAVE WRITTEN MUCH BEFORE IN MY PREVIOUS BOOKS IN HEALTHCARE.

THE QUESTION OF EQUITY, FAIRNESS, AND TRUTH IN THE DELIVERY OF HEALTHCARE HAS BEEN A MOST DISTURBING ONE TO ME.

I WRITE- SALUS POPULI- FOR THE SAFETY OF THE PEOPLE.

THE SYSTEMS- BABYLON SYSTEMS- THE WORLD IS FULL OF PROBLEMS, SO MANY ILLUSIONS- LET’S TAKE A BRIEF LOOK.

EXCERPT (c) WE AN DEM INNA BABYLON SYSTEM- THE TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY- RASTA PROPHECY- RAS CARDO REGGAE.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE, AND WITH LOVE FOR ALL PEOPLE.

REGGAE AND RASTAFARI HAS SPOKEN TO THE PEOPLE FOR OVER FIVE DECADES STRONG, BUT ONLY A FEW HAVE LISTENED AND TAKEN HEED.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HAS PROPHESIED IN THE TRUTH OF THE LIVITY OF OUR PEOPLES, BUT THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL SEE AND FEEL THE SUN SHINING AND SAY ITS NOT.

THERE ARE MANY THINGS WHICH THE SIMPLE AVERAGE MAN/WOMAN GOING ABOUT LIFE IN SOCIETY CANNOT AND WILL NOT KNOW..

BUT IF WE TAKE A LOOK OVER THE CENTURIES WE WILL SEE THAT THE TRUTHS OF TODAY WERE THE SAME TRUTHS FROM YESTERDAY, JUST RETURNING FOR A MUCH GREATER REVELATION.

THE WORLD HAS ONLY CHANGED IN BECOMING MORE EVIL, FILLED WITH HATE, GREED, MALICE AND ENVY. PEOPLE NOT WILLING TO SHARE WITH OTHERS, AND SO USE THEIR WEALTH AND INFLUENCE TO ENSLAVE OTHERS IN POVERTY.

YES, POVERTY IS USED AS A WEAPON.

MY REGGAE SPEAKS ABOUT ALL THIS, BUT IT HAS BEEN THE AIM OF THOSE IN THE INDUSTRY OF MUSIC TO ERASE THIS TRUTH FROM THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE.

THEY FILL THE PEOPLES MINDS WITH ILLUSIONS, MAKES THEM DELUSIONAL AND CAUSE THEM MUCH CONFUSION.

TODAY, WE HAVE SO MUCH MAD PEOPLE GETTING READY TO EXPLODE.BECAUSE THOSE IN THE SYSTEM, BABYLON SYSTEM -WILL NOT HELP THEM TO CARRY THIS LOAD.

LOOK AROUND YOU, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAVE REALLY SEEN OR HEARD A GOOD, UPLIFTING NEWS REPORT?

TODAY, EVERYONE IS EAGER TO MAKE THEIR OWN HISTORY, AND THE TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY AS I HAD PREDICTED YEARS AGO , NOW HELPS THEM TO DO JUST THAT AND MORE.

THE AVERAGE PERSON HAS REFUSED TO BE A- SUBJECT OF HISTORY- AND NOW BECOMES – AN OBJECT OF HISTORY.

PEOPLE ARE MAKING THEIR OWN HISTORY AND SHOWING IT ON PLACES LIKE YOU TUBE. THE CAMERA IS NOW THE TYRANNICAL KING. YOU HEARD THIS HERE FIRST.

PEOPLE ARE REFUSING TO BE A PART OF THE SWINDLE OF BUREAUCRATS, POLITICIANS, PSEUDO-INTELLECTUALS, AND ACADEMICIANS, WHOSE SOLE AIM IS TO REACH OUT FOR POWER, AND WITH GREED AND HATE, DESTROY THOSE WHO DO NOT GO ALONG WITH THEIR PLANS.

THE CORPORATE STRUCTURES ALL AROUND THE WORLD SEEKS TO DO THAT.

SLOWLY, WHAT MOST CALLED- FREEDOM- WILL NO LONGER EXISTS. THERE IS A TYRANNY OF CIRCUMSTANCES- FORCING PEOPLE TO GO CRAZY.

THE MASSES, THE POOR MAN, THE DOWNPRESSED, THE DISADVANTAGED, THE HAVE NOTS- HAS SLOWLY SEEN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH.

MY WRITINGS OF TRUTHS ON THE -TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY- AS WE SEE IN FULL EFFECT TODAY HAS SPOKEN ABOUT ALL THIS.

IN THIS TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY- THE CAMERA, THE INTERNET, THE WEB, IS KING.

THE CAMERA HAS NOW BECOME THE LEADING TYRANNICAL INSTRUMENT OF TRUTH. I AM SURE YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD ANYONE SAID THIS BEFORE NOW..

FOR EVEN THOSE OF THE -ANARCHIST- TERRORIST- TECHNOTYRANNIST- KIND HAS BECOME AFRAID OF WHAT THE CAMERA WILL REVEAL.

DID YOU REMEMBER I SAID- ” THE TECHNOLOGY WE CREATE WILL ULTIMATELY DETERMINE OUR FATE?”

I HAVE ALSO SAID THAT- IT IS THOSE WHO ARE OF WEALTH WHO WILL DESTROY, NOT ONLY AMERICA AND ITS FREEDOM, BUT THE WORLD.

THERE ARE MANY WHOSE AIMS ARE TO DESTROY EVERYTHING- NO MORE FREEDOM, NO MORE GOD TO SERVE, NO MORE MORALS, NO MORE GOVERNMENTS, ETC.ETC.

SO MANY FEEL THAT THEY HAVE BEEN DECEIVED BY  THE SYSTEMS.

THE SYSTEMS HAVE CREATED ASPIRING MINDS.  HOPEFUL MINDS WITH BROADENED APPETITES FOR WEALTH AND POWER WHICH IT HAS FAILED TO APPEASE.

WHAT WAS THOUGHT WOULD EMERGE UNDER ONE SYSTEM, HAS EMERGED UNDER ANOTHER.

ONE SYSTEM HAS HAD A LONG STRETCH OF UNPRECEDENTED AFFLUENCE FOR SOME, BUT NOT FOR ALL.

FOR MOST OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE  I HAVE SEEN AND SPOKEN TO IN AMERICA AND THE WORLD- THIS IS THEIR CRUCIAL CONCERN AS TO THIS -DISCONNECT.

I SIT WITH THEM, MOST OF VERY BRIGHT MINDS FILLED WITH ENERGY, BUT ARE BORED WITH THE GHASTLY DILEMMAS THEY SEE AROUND THEM FROM THE SYSTEMS.

THOSE WHO WANT TO ARGUE WITH THE TRUTHS I HAVE SEEN AND SHARE HERE CAN DO SO.

THE ANSWER I AM GETTING FROM THE YOUTHS IS THAT THE SYSTEMS HAS FAILED THEM.

I HAVE NO READY MADE ANSWERS FOR THEM, BUT I MUST TAKE AS TRUTH WHAT THEY HAVE REVEALED TO ME AND WHICH MY REGGAE HAS TOLD THE WORLD OVER THE YEARS.

THERE IS AN IMBALANCE OF OPPORTUNITY IN MANY SOCIETIES, INCLUDING AMERICA. IN THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES NO OPPORTUNITIES EXISTS, SO THEY FLOCK TO AMERICA.

WHEN THEY COME TO AMERICA, ONLY TO FIND A SYSTEM NOT READY FOR THEM, AND TO WHICH THEY CANNOT ASSIMILATE, OR BE APPEASED, WHAT DO YOU THINK THEIR RESTLESSNESS WILL TAKE THEM?

THEY COME AND THEY SEE A SYSTEM WHICH IS A DELUSION, IN THAT IT DISTORTS AND FRUSTRATES THEIR HOPES AND STRUGGLES. THOSE WHO WERE BORN HERE AND HAVE SEEN THEIR FAMILIES STRUGGLED OVER THE YEARS SHARE THE SAME FEELINGS OF ILLUSIONS.

THE COMMERCIALS SHOWN ON TELEVISIONS IN POOR COUNTRIES ABOUT AMERICA USUALLY SHOW THE AFFLUENT SIDE OF CORPORATE WEALTH AND INFLUENCE.

NOW, WE HAVE THE AMERICAN REALITY THAT NOT EVERYONE CAN GET THE – ” AMERICAN DREAM”.

SO, WHAT DO WE NOW TELL THE YOUTHS? HOW CAN WE BRING A MEASURE OF RIGHTNESS TO SUCH A CATASTROPHIC WRONGFULL SITUATION?

WELL, MY REGGAE SAID SIMPLY THIS- TELL THE CHILDREN THE TRUTH.

THE RASTAMAN SAID- BABYLON SYSTEM IS THE VAMPIRE SUCKING THE BLOOD OF THE SUFFERERS, DECEIVING THE PEOPLE CONTINUALLY..

MY LATE GREAT BRETHREN AND PROPHET- PETER TOSH SANG- ONLY LOVE, WISDOM AND OVERSTANDING IS THE ONLY SOLUTION. YET, THEY KILLED HIM FOR  SPEAKING THE TRUTH.

MY REGGAE SPEAKS THE TRUTHS TO GODS PEOPLE. HE ALONE IS MY LIGHT AND MY SALVATION. PEACE! (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

“MANY HAVE LOST THEIR SOULS FOR THE CAUSE OF FREEDOM AND REGGAE SINGERS ARE AMONG THE MARTYRS, BECAUSE THERE ARE EVIL SOULS OUT THERE WHO DO NOT WANT FREEDOM TO PREVAIL”. I , RAS CARDO STAND BY EVERY WORD I HAVE WRITTEN FOR I KNOW THAT JAH WILL DELIVER HIS PEOPLE.

EXCERPT (c) THE TRUE TRENCH TOWN STORY- RAS CARDO FROM TRENCH TOWN.

THE TRUTH- WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE, MALICE OR HATE.

NO APOLOGIES!

FOR THOSE WHO MAY HAVE SEEN THIS QUOTE AND READ IT IN MY BOOK, I HOPE THAT YOU CLEARLY UNDERSTAND HOW TRUTHFUL AND SERIOUS IT IS.

IT IS THE REALITY OF OUR TIMES WHEN WE SHOULD NEVER TAKE ANYTHING OR ANYONE IN BABYLON FOR GRANTED.

THE EVIL ONES WHO WALK AROUND WITH SATAN, SHOWING HIM AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT TO THOSE WHO CAN BE DECEIVED, WILL SO BE DECEIVED.

FOR THOSE WHOM HAVE SEEN AND READ BITS AND PIECES OF MY WORKS WHICH OTHERS HAVE USED TO ENHANCE THE MARKETABILITY OF THEIRS, I MUST CAUTION YOU THAT THEY NEVER CONSULTED ME BEFORE SO DOING, AND THEY DO NOT KNOW THE CONTEXT FROM WHICH I SPEAK.

THE CONTEXT AND EXPERIENCE FROM WHICH I WRITE IS IN NO WAY RELATED TO THAT IN WHICH THEY QUOTE AND JUXTAPOSE MY WORKS WITH THEIRS.

YOU MAY HAVE SEEN PEOPLE LIKE- JOHN MASOURI- QUOTING ME IN HIS BOOK ABOUT MY TRENCH TOWN BRETHREN- PETER TOSH- STEPPIN RAZOR- THE LIFE OF PETER TOSH.

OR, YOU MAY HAVE SEEN, CHRIS SALEWICZ- QUOTING ME IN HIS BOOK ON BOB MARLEY, ANOTHER ONE OF MY CLOSE TRENCH TOWN BRETHREN.

I MUST MAKE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR TO ALL THOSE WHO READ MY TRUTHS, THAT NONE OF THESE MEN WERE IN TRENCH TOWN WITH BOB, PETER, MYSELF AND THE OTHER BRETHRENS AND SISTRENS, AND NONE OF US WERE CONSULTED AS THE ONES WHO KNOW AND HAVE THE REAL TRUTHS.

SO, THESE GUYS JUST CASUALLY WENT AHEAD AND PRINTED WHATEVER THEY WANTED FROM PEOPLE WHO WERE NEVER THERE WITH US.

IN MY TRUTH AND HONESTY, I MUST GIVE THEM CREDIT FOR QUOTING ME WORD FOR WORD, BEING DONE IN A MOST PLAGIARIZING MANNER, AND YES, WITHOUT MY CONSULTATION.

FOR THEY ALL FEEL THAT THEY CAN USE YOUR WORKS TO THEIR BENEFIT WITHOUT EVEN TELLING YOU ABOUT IT.

I. RAS CARDO WILL NEVER TOLERATE THAT. I WILL EXPOSE ALL THOSE WHO DO.

YOU MAY GIVE A COPY OF THIS TO ALL YOUR HUNGRY BELLY LAWYERS.

IF WE ALL SWEAR TO TELL – THE TRUTH- IN OUR COURTS OF LAW- THEN WHY ARE WE SHOWING OURSELVES AS DEVOUT PERJURORS- AB INITIO.?

INCIDENTALLY, WE HAVE A REGGAE SONG ABOUT- HYPOCRITES.

WHATEVER I WRITE, AND HAVE WRITTEN OVER THE YEARS HAVE BEEN ALL TRUE.

I MAKE NO APOLOGIES FOR THE TRUTHS WHICH I REVEAL.

I MUST HOWEVER ALSO SAY THAT QUOTING ME VERBATIM FROM MY WRITINGS WHEN YOU DO NOT KNOW FROM WHICH CONTEXT I WRITE AND MY EXPERIENCES, WHICH YOU MAY THINK OR ASSUME, FALLS IN LINE WITH YOURS, IS GROSSLY MISLEADING TO THOSE WHO WILL READ AND FALSELY ASSUME THAT WE ARE IN CONCERT.

I AM AN INDEPENDENT WRITER AND THINKER, ORIGINAL IN THE TRUTHS WHICH I CONVEY. I NEED NOT ANYONE TO  SPEAK FOR ME EXCEPT THE WORD OF JAH ALMIGHTY.

THIS IS ALSO MY LIFE HISTORY WITH MY PEOPLE FROM TRENCH TOWN.

IF INFORMATION TRANSLATES INTO MONEY AS A COMMODITY, THEN THOSE WHO SEEK TO EXPLOIT, STEAL AND ROB FOR PROFIT AT THE DESTRUCTION OF THE POOR WILL BE SHOWN FOR WHO THEY ARE.

FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN WRITTEN THUS FAR ABOUT BOB MARLEY, PETER TOSH, THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE AND OTHERS, IT IS CLEAR THAT:

PLAGIARISM AND THE NON-VERIFIABILITY OF THE AUTHORS INCLUSIONS MAKES IT ALL SUSPECT AS TO THE TRUTH, AUTHENTICITY, AND CREDIBILITY.

IN SHORT, MY WARNING TO THOSE WHO FAIL TO CONSULT WITH ME TO GET MY PERMISSION ON THE USAGE OF MY WORKS IS THIS:

DON’T JUXTAPOSE MY WORKS WITH YOUR PREVARICATIONS AND FALSEHOODS.

I AM NOT IN CONCERT NOR ORCHESTRATION WITH YOUR PLANS AND INTENT TO DEFRAUD, STEAL, ROB AND DECEIVE THE PEOPLE ABOUT MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE, THE MUSIC , THE CULTURE, OR RASTAFARI.

I HAVE WRITTEN THE TRUTHS AND WILL NEVER CEASE TO DO SO..

IF YOU MISQUOTE ME, YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR IT. NO EXCEPTIONS.

I AM RAS CARDO. I CREATED AND NAMED THIS MUSICAL GENRE- REGGAE. I AM FROM TRENCH TOWN. I SPEAK FOR THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE.

(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

MRS. HELEN HAUGHTON CLENNON. F.S.R.T. A POWERHOUSE IN MEDICAL RADIATION TECHNOLOGY IN THE WEST INDIES AND BEYOND. MY GREATEST RESPECT AND TRIBUTE. JAMAICA SHOULD BE JUSTLY PROUD.SHE IS ICONIC, PIONEERING, EMINENT, AND EMPYREAN. A WOMAN WHO HAS CHANGED THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER IN THE LIVES OF SO MANY. THANKS!

EXCERPT (c) JAMAICAN WOMEN WHO HAVE IMPACTED THE WORLD. RAS CARDO REGGAE SPEAKS THE TRUTHS.

FROM THE BOOK (c)  1999-JAMAICA MUST LEAD BY EXAMPLE ISBN# 1-584700033- RAS CARDO.

FOR THOSE WHO MAY NOT KNOW THIS POWERHOUSE OF A WOMAN WHO HAILS FROM KINGSTON, JAMAICA, THEN NOW ITS TIME FOR YOU TO LISTEN.

THE ENTIRE WEST INDIAN COMMUNITY AND GROUP OF COUNTRIES INCLUDING JAMAICA, IS INDEBTED TO THIS WOMAN WHO HAS TOILED FOR YEARS TO HELP THE PEOPLE.

SHE STANDS AS THE MATRIARCH OF MANY YOUNG AND ASPIRING MINDS WHO WANTED TO ENTER THE MEDICAL FIELD OF RADIATION  TECHNOLOGY..

WORKING FROM A VANTAGE POINT AT THE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL OF THE WEST INDIES SCHOOL OF RADIATION TECHNOLOGY, SHE HAS PIONEERED PROGRAMS WHICH NOW REACHES COUNTRIES BOTH NEAR AND FAR AS IN AFRICA.

FOR ME TO WRITE HER LISTS OF CREDITS IN THE WORKS SHE HAS DONE TO MAKE THE LIVES OF MANY YOUNG PEOPLE BOTH IN JAMAICA AND BEYOND SUCCESSFUL, WOULD TAKE SEVERAL PAGES. THE LIST WOULD BE JUST TOO LONG.

I AM HERE TO SEND HER PERSONAL AS WELL AS PROFESSIONAL TRIBUTE AND TO MAKE THE WORLD KNOW THAT IN MY BOOK SHE IS LOVED AND MOST RESPECTED IN THE ADMIRATION THAT I GIVE TO MY BELOVED MOTHER.

WITHOUT HER, JAMAICA WOULD NEVER HAVE MADE IT INTO THE INTERNATIONAL RANKINGS OF MEDICAL RADIATION TECHNOLOGY.

YES! ONE WOMAN CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.

SO, IT IS BECAUSE OF HER, AND THE TOP NOTCH QUALITY STUDENTS THAT SHE GRADUATES FROM THE SCHOOL, WHICH MAKES JAMAICA NOW A WORLD PLAYER WITH RESPECT IN THIS MEDICAL ARENA.

AS A TEACHER WHO CARES DEEPLY ABOUT THE CHILDREN AND YOUNG MINDS SHE SHAPES FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR WORLD, SHE IS SECOND TO NONE.

IN A TIME WHEN SO MANY SCHOOLS ARE STRUGGLING BOTH IN THE USA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD, I CONTINUE TO REFLECT ON THREE OUTSTANDING WOMEN AS TEACHERS FROM JAMAICA.

. MY BELOVED MOTHER, MRS HELEN CLENNON, MOTHER GRAY- MY PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHER.

THERE IS SOMETHING WHICH THESE WOMEN IMPARTS TO THE STUDENTS LIKE NO OTHER COULD REACH OR REPLICATE.

I HAVE SAID, THAT JAMAICA SHOULD BE JUSTLY PROUD, AND THOSE WHO HAVE GROWN TO KNOW YOU SHOULD BE GRATEFUL. I SAY ALL THESE THINGS OF TRUTHS WITHOUT RESERVATIONS.

I HAVE SEEN YOUR STRUGGLES, KNOW OF YOUR TOILS AND SUFFERINGS TO HELP OTHERS, SEEN YOUR LOVE FOR THE PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THE CHILDREN.

I STAND JUSTLY PROUD OF KNOWING YOU OVER THE YEARS.

I WOULD OFTEN FEEL THAT JAMAICA WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE HAVING YOU AS ITS – 1ST LADY- PRIME MINISTER. NO DISRESPECT TO ANY OTHER.

YOU EXEMPLIFY THE QUALITIES AND ACUMEN IT TAKES TO HELP THE PEOPLE WITH LOVE AND RESPECT AND DIGNITY.

IN MY BOOK, YOU STAND SUPREME. IN THE FIELD OF MEDICAL RADIATION TECHNOLOGY WORLD WIDE- YOU ARE ICONIC AND A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.

PLEASE ALLOW ME TO MENTION THE NAMES OF SOME OF THESE WOMEN WHOM YOU ALSO KNOW VERY WELL, FOR YOU HAVE HELPED SHAPED THEIR LIVES- DONNA CHANNER, VALERIE LEE, LORNA-HAROLD GRAY, WINNIFRED MARSHALL, YVONNE HUGHES, YVONNE ALLEN, LOLA CHIN LYNN, DAVIKA DINANATH, SAROJINI RAMPRASAD, JANE CLARK, JACQUELINE SPENCE ET AL.

IF I SHOULD ATTACH A MOTTO: TO YOUR WORKS I WOULD SAY-” SHE WORKS TIRELESSLY SO THAT NO ONE, NO CHILD IS LEFT BEHIND”.

I AM SURE THAT THOSE HERE MENTIONED WILL ATTEST TO THE VERACITY OF WHAT I HAVE SAID HERE.

YOU ARE – THE SINE QUA NON- OF WEST INDIAN MEDICAL RADIATION TECHNOLOGY. MUCH RESPECT, AND JAH BLESS FROM RAS CARDO.

JAMAICAN WOMEN OF ALL CLASS AND CREEDS, MUST BE RESPECTED AND SO HONORED.

I AM RAS CARDO- REGGAE LEGEND/CREATOR/ORIGINAL WAILING WAILER- FROM TRENCH TOWN JAMAICA.

(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

MY CREATED TRENCH TOWN REGGAE MUSIC IS WHAT IT DOES. BABYLON SYSTEM HAS BEEN TRYING TO CHANGE THAT FOR YEARS. IT IS JAH WORKS FOR THE REDEMPTION OF HIS PEOPLE.

EXCERPT (c) MY REGGAE IS, WHAT IT DOES- FREE THE PEOPLE.

NO APOLOGIES FOR THE TRUTH.

IF MUSIC MUST BE THE FOOD OF LOVE, THEN IT MUST GIVE LOVE, NOT HATE.

IF IT MUST SOOTHE THE SAVAGE BEAST, THEN SOOTHE IT SHOULD.

IF MUSIC IS TO HEAL THE PEOPLE, THEN IT MUST HEAL.

IF MUSIC IS TO TEACH, EDUCATE, UPLIFT, FREE, AND ENLIGHTEN, THE PEOPLE, THEN IT MUST EDUCATE IN ORDER TO LIBERATE.

WHENEVER, AND WHEREVER THERE IS MUSIC WITH A SPIRITUAL PURPOSE, SUNG BY THOSE WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK THE REDEMPTION OF JAH PEOPLE, THERE IS A MYSTICAL AND UNEXPLAINABLE TRANSFORMATION ON THE MINDS AND HEARTS OF MAN. MY REGGAE ALWAYS HEAL AND FREE JAH PEOPLE.

THIS IS WHAT MY REGGAE IS, AND WHAT IT DOES.

IT FREES JAH PEOPLE FROM THE ENSLAVEMENT OF BABYLON SYSTEM.

NO OTHER MUSIC FORCE DOES THAT!

REGGAE IS WHAT IT DOES!

I CAN UNDERSTAND THE DIFFICULTIES AND STRUGGLES OF THOSE WHO CALL THEMSELVES -REGGAE HISTORIANS- ETYMOLOGISTS, MUSICOLOGISTS- PROFESSORS OF MUSIC- ACADEMICIANS OF ALL SORTS , CLASS AND CREEDS, REGGAE HISTORIAN WANNABEES, COMMITTEES OF ALL SORTS, ORGANIZATIONS, CORPORATE ENTITIES, AND BODIES, WHO TRY TO UNDERSTAND AND COMPREHEND THE ORIGINS, MISSION, AND PURPOSE OF MY REGGAE MUSIC.

THEY ARE UNABLE TO SEE THIS TRUTH BECAUSE THEIR INTENT IS TO DECEIVE THE PEOPLE WITH MUSIC.

BUT, CAN A LEOPARD CHANGE HIS SPOTS?

MY REGGAE EXPOSES THEM FOR WHO AND WHAT THEY ARE.

THEY FAIL TO SEE THEMSELVES AS SUBJECTED TO A HIGHER POWER.

REGGAE IS JAH MUSIC.

THEY ARE WISE ONLY IN THEIR OWN EYES. THEY ARE FOOLS, WHO HAVE EYES BUT SEE NOT.

THOSE WHO HAVE A PROBLEM UNDERSTANDING WHAT I SAID OVER THE YEARS, MUST HAVE HAD THEIR HEADS IN THE CLOUDS.

MY TRENCH TOWN CREATED REGGAE MUSIC IS HERE TO STAY. IT IS WHAT IT DOES.

IT FREES AND HEAL THE PEOPLE. I CREATED IT TO DO JUST THAT, AND MORE.

I AM RAS CARDO REGGAE CREATOR FROM TRENCH TOWN. NO ONE ELSE CAN SAY THAT WITH TRUTH (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

IF THE WEATHER IS ANY INDICATION OF HOW EVIL, HATEFUL, AND WICKED WE HAVE BECOME, THEN I KNOW IT WILL NOT GET BETTER ANY TIME SOON. MUSLIMS ARE JAH PEOPLE TOO. WHAT HAVE WE BECOME?

EXCERPT(c) IS AMERICA BECOMING ANOTHER AKEL DAMA?

Yet another killing of Jah people. This time three young Muslim American students in Chapel Hill North Carolina.

If the outpouring of peoples who have been brought together because of this tragedy is any proof that something is gravely wrong with America, then I Ras Cardo do not know what will bring us to our rational senses.

FOR, WE MUST EITHER LEARN TO PEACEFULLY LIVE TOGETHER OR PERISH.

SUCH CRUEL AND EVIL ACTS MUST NEVER BE TOLERATED, NOR GO UNPUNISHED.

It would seem that today so many are committing these types of deadly crimes with a view to hiding under the defense of insanity.

SO MUCH MAD PEOPLE GETTING READY TO EXPLODE.

YOU MAY NOT BELIEVE THIS, BUT THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO SEE THE JUSTICE SYSTEM AS JUST A WALK IN THE PARK. THREE MEALS A DAY, NO RENT TO PAY, NO WIFE TO OBEY, GOOD HEALTHCARE, ETC . FOR THEM, THE SYSTEM DOES NOT INCARCERATE, IT LIBERATES. IT FREES THEM FROM THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF BECOMING PRODUCTIVE CITIZENS OF SOCIETY.

I AM NOT SAYING THIS TRUTH TO UNDERMINE THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN INNOCENTLY CONVICTED, NOR THOSE WHO HAVE NON- INTENTIONALLY MADE A WRONG CHOICE.

I AM HERE ADDRESSING ALL THOSE WHO HARBOR HATE WITHIN THEMSELVES UNTIL THEY FIND THE TIME TO BRING HARM TO SOMEONE.

THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THEY WILL BE GOING TO HAVE WHAT THEY NEED CATERED TO THEM.

THE NEXT TIME SOMEONE WHISPERS IN YOUR EARS ABOUT SEEKING REVENGE OR RETALIATION AGAINST ANOTHER, LOOK THEM STRAIGHT IN THE EYES AND ASK- TO WHAT END, MY FRIEND? WHAT PURPOSE? WHAT WILL YOU ACHIEVE?

SOMEONE DECIDED TO PLAY GOD AND TAKE THE LIVES OF THESE INNOCENT YOUNG PEOPLE, WHO HAPPENS TO BE MUSLIMS. THIS IS NOT OK!. THIS WILL NEVER BE OK IN AMERICA, AND AMERICANS MUST SPEAK UP AND SPEAK OUT AGAINST IT.

THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE BELLY OF AMERICA WHO SEEKS TO DESTROY AMERICA. IT IS NOT THESE ETHNIC PEOPLE. IT WAS NOT THESE STUDENTS.

I MUST PRAY THAT GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS TO COMFORT THE PARENTS AND FAMILIES OF THESE YOUNG ONES WHOSE LIVES WERE TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM.

MAY THE WIFE OF THE KILLER FIND THE PEACE AND THE ANSWER TO WHAT HER SPOUSE HAS DONE.

I DO NOT KNOW IF FORGIVENESS IS IN ORDER, BUT IF IT IS POSSIBLE, I AM SURE THAT OUR MEMORY OF THIS TRAGIC TIME WILL NEVER GO AWAY.

I KEEP ASKING MYSELF- HOW MANY MORE HAVE TO SUFFER. HOW MANY MORE HAVE TO DIE, DON’T ASK ME WHY.

AMERICA- AMERICA- WAKE UP AND LIVE! (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

GRANNY IS GONE- A MATRIARCH OF REGGAE LEGENDS- A WORLD OF DISPLACED AND RESTLESS YOUTHS. R.E.G.G.A.E ALSO MEANS- REAFFIRMING GHETTO GENIUS ANYWHERE EVERYWHERE.

EXCERPT. (c) GRANNY IS GONE- A SUDDEN DISCONNECT.

(c)MY PROVERBIAL MOM- MAMA SCOTT.-BY RAS CARDO.

SHE KEPT A VERY HUMBLE LOW  PROFILE WHILE HELPING MANY OF THE YOUTHS TO FIND THE SELF CONFIDENCE AND ENDURING SPIRIT TO OVERCOME WHAT EVILS EXISTED IN THE COMMUNITY AND WORLD AROUND THEM.

TRENCH TOWN WAS ONE SUCH PLACE.

LIKE SO MANY OTHER JAMAICAN MOTHERS LIVING IN THE POVERTY THAT WAS, AND STILL IS TRENCH TOWN, SHE MADE SURE THAT WE WOULD NEVER GO ASTRAY.

WITH HER REASSURING LOVE, CARE AND TIRELESS EFFORTS TO FEEL OUR RESTLESS SPIRIT, SHE TAUGHT US HOW TO CARE AND SHARE WITH EACH OTHER IN THE LITTLE THAT WE HAD.

WERE IT NOT FOR MOTHERS AS SHE EXEMPLIFIED, WE WOULD NEVER HAVE LIVED TO SEE THIS DAY, AND AS BOB MARLEY SANG- GOOD FRIENDS WE HAVE LOST ALONG THE WAY..WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT OUR HISTORY IS ALL TRUE.

THERE IS SOMETHING UNIQUELY SPECIAL ABOUT GRANNY AND MOTHERS WHO RAISE CHILDREN IN THE THROES OF POVERTY.

I HAVE SEEN THIS EVERYWHERE I TROD, BUT I HAVE SPECIAL EXPERIENCES WITH THAT OF MY MOTHER AND THE JAMAICAN GRANNY COMMUNITY.

YOU WOULD NEVER UNDERSTAND HOW SO MUCH LOVE CAN BE FOUND IN SUCH A VIOLENT PLACE.

I WISH I HAD THE TIME TO TELL YOU THE DETAILS WHICH THOSE WHO WRITE ABOUT US CAN NEVER TELL..

YOU SEE- YOU HAVE TO HAVE LIVED OUR HISTORY AT THE BEGINNING FROM THE BEGINNING TO BE ABLE TO TELL OUR HISTORY. THIS NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN FABRICATE, PREVARICATE, OR IMITATE..

SO MANY HAVE TRIED TO THIS AND HAVE FAILED MISERABLY. I AM HERE TO SEE THE TRUTH BE TOLD.

WITH NO DISRESPECT FOR FATHERS, BUT I MUST SAY THIS: GRANNY HAS THE MOST STABLE INFLUENCES ON THE STABILITY OF YOUTHS.

WHEN GRANNY IS GONE CHAOS AND DESTRUCTION EASILY SETS IN.

MORE AND MORE WE HAVE A SOCIETY IN WHICH THE FAMILY IS FRAGMENTED. GRANNY IS FORCED TO LOOK AND WORK OUTSIDE THE HOME, AND THE YOUTHS NO LONGER HAVE THE REASSURING LOVE AND GUIDANCE TO KEEP THEM ON THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW.

MY PROVERBIAL AND LOVING MOM WAS ALWAYS THERE FOR US. WERE IT NOT SO I HAD ENOUGH GENIUS IN ME TO GO THE WRONG AND DESTRUCTIVE WAYS OF LIFE.

NEVER A DAY PASSES THAT I DO NOT GRIEVE THE LOSS OF MY MOTHER,AND THE MOTHERS WHOM I KNEW FROM OUR TRENCH TOWN COMMUNITY.

I WILL NOT WRITE WHAT DETAILS I HAVE IN TESTIMONIALS FROM PEOPLE LIKE BOB MARLEY, PETER TOSH, JOE HIGGS, AND OTHERS WHOM MY MOTHER ALSO GUIDED.

BUT IT WAS MOTHERS AND GRANNIES LIKE MY MOM WHICH MADE OUR LIVES POSSIBLE.

ASK ANY JAMAICAN YOUTH, AND THEY WILL READILY TELL YOU OF THE IMPORTANCE OF GRANNY IN THEIR LIVES. THEY DO LOVE THEIR BIOLOGICAL MOTHERS, BUT GRANNY IS THE KEY TO WHOM THEY TRUST AND RESPECT.

MY BELOVED MOTHER WAS ONE SUCH GRANNY, AND I KNOW WHAT HER ABSENCE MEANS TO OUR FAMILY.

I WRITE THIS FOR ALL GRANNIES THE WORLD OVER BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ALONE.

SO, IN THIS 2015 AND ALL MOTHERS DAY TO COME I PRAY THAT THE ROLES OF GRANNY WILL RETURN TO THE NURTURING OF OUR YOUTHS IN THIS NOW -TECHNOTYRANNICAL GENERATION.. (c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.
