” THOU SHALL NOT KILL, BUT NEED NOT STRIVE TO KEEP ALIVE”. IS THIS THE NEW MANDATE FOR HEALTHCARE IN AMERICA? THE SICK, THE POOR, THE DISPOSSESSED IS IN SERIOUS TROUBLE. WICKEDNESS, WICKEDNESS, FROM THE MERCILESS DRUG COMPANIES IN THEIR PRICING OF DRUGS WHICH GOES BEYOND THE REACH OF THE ORDINARY MAN/WOMAN. I HAVE SAID BEFORE-“THEY MAKE CRIMINALS OUT OF MEN, THEN INCARCERATES AND KILLS THEM FOR THE CRIMINALS THEY BECOME”. THE DOCTORS WHO CARE ABOUT LIFE ARE CAUGHT IN A DILEMMA. MANY LEAVING THE INNER CITIES TO THE LUCRATIVE AREAS OF THE RICH. WHAT WILL THE POOR MAN AND HIS DOCTOR DO TO MAKE A LIVING? HEAVEN HELP US ALL!

TO ALL CRITICS, CYNICS, NAYSAYERS, DOUBTING THOMASES OF MY -REGGAE CREATION IN 1962 TRENCH TOWN. I, RAS CARDO EXTEND TO THE WORLD, THE INVITATION TO CHALLENGE MY FACTS AND TRUTHS AS I HAVE WRITTEN OVER THE YEARS. OVER THE YEARS YOU HAVE SPREAD LIES AND FALSE RUMORS ABOUT US AND OUR HISTORY. YOU HAVE USED SOME OF MY WORKS TO ENRICH YOURSELVES AND CRONIES. YOU HAVE KILLED AND DESTROYED THE LIVES OF MY PEOPLE INCLUDING MY BELOVED BRETHRENS, AND STILL YOU WANT MORE. LET THE WORLD SEE WHO YOU ARE AS A DECEIVER, A LIAR, A PLAGIARER, A REGGAE IMPOSTOR, AND VULTURE. IF YOU SING OR PLAY -REGGAE MUSIC- YOU ARE SINGING AND PLAYING MY CREATION. BOB MARLEY KNOWS THIS, PETER TOSH KNOWS THIS, JOE HIGGS KNOWS THIS, JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE KNOWS THIS, DELROY WILSON KNOWS THIS, CHERRY GREEN KNOWS THIS, ROY WILSON KNOWS THIS, THE LIST GOES ON AND ON AND ON.THE WORLD LOVES A LIAR AND A HYPOCRITE. I RAS CARDO BRINGS THE TRUTH.NO ONE COMES CLOSE.

I AM RAS CARDO- FROM TRENCH TOWN JAMAICA. LET THE WORLD KNOW THIS TRUTH: I AM NEVER ASHAMED OF THE PLACE AND THE PEOPLE WHERE I CAME FROM. IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD-TRENCH TOWN- IS SEEN AS A PLACE MANY WOULD LOVE TO HATE WERE IT NOT FOR THE FACT THAT THEY NOW KNOW -REGGAE AND BOB MARLEY CAME THEREFROM.I AM THE ONLY WRITER WHO HAS SHOWN A SIDE OF TRENCH TOWN THAT NO OTHER CAN SHOW- i.e. THE GOOD THAT COMES FROM TRENCH TOWN. I HAVE DONE THIS OVER THE YEARS. THERE ARE MANY JAMAICANS WHO STILL FEAR, DETEST, AND LOOK CONDESCENDINGLY ON THE PLACE AND ON THOSE WHO CAME FROM THE PLACE. I CAN UNDERSTAND THEIR POSITION. JOURNALISTS WITH SELF INTERESTS, FROM FOREIGN LANDS HAVE TO SEEK THE HELP OF-“DONS”- TO ENTER THE PLACE, AND THEY FILM THE PEOPLE WITHOUT THE PEOPLES PERMISSION NOT GIVING THEM ANY MONETARY COMPENSATION.POVERTY STILL REIGNS IN THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.I HEAR MUCH CALLING FOR THE DEMISE OF THE REGGAE AND THE FALSIFICATION OF HISTORICAL TRUTHS WHICH WE HAVE ESTABLISHED TO HELP POOR PEOPLE. IN A TIME APPOINTED I WILL MAKE THE WORLD KNOW CERTAIN TRUTHS. THE REGGAE LEGACY MUST BE PRESERVED FOR THE POSTERITY OF THE PEOPLE. IT IS WRITTEN-“HE WHO HAS THE TRUTH SHALL BE FEARED BY MANY NATIONS”. DO YOU KNOW THE TRENCH TOWN SONG-“HYPOCRITES”- THAT BOB MARLEY MADE FAMOUS? I, RAS CARDO CAN TELL YOU THE MEANING AND CONTEXT OF ALL THE EARLY SONGS WITH EXACTITUDE. “SOME WILL EAT AND DRINK WITH YOU”……you can finish this. “THEM BELLY FULL, BUT WE HUNGRY”( A SONG STOLEN FROM LEGHORN COGHILE- IN A COURT CASE.) IT CAME FROM TRENCH TOWN.I WILL EDUCATE THE WORLD IN THE TRUE HISTORY OF OUR TRENCH TOWN DAYS. THIS IS ALSO MY HISTORY AND LIVITY. IT IS MOST PERSONAL TO ME.A BOOK IS FORTHCOMING WHICH WILL TELL THE WORLD MORE. MY CRITICS PARASITICALLY FOLLOW ME LIKE VULTURES. TIME WILL TELL, FOR THEY NEVER WISH ME WELL. THEY ARE ALWAYS GREEDY. MY MISSION IS TO HELP THE POOR AND TO GIVE NUGGETS FOR THE NEEDY. I AM RAS CARDO WHO CREATED REGGAE AND THE MUSIC FROM TRENCH TOWN. (c) THIS IS A REGGAE EDUCATION. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

WITHOUT PREJUDICE! THE TRUTH- REGGAE IS THE MUSIC THAT MADE BOB MARLEY FAMOUS. BOB MARLEY WAS THE ARTIST WHO MADE THE NAME- CHRIS BLACKWELL- FROM ISLAND RECORDS WELL KNOWN. I AM THE ONE WHO CREATED THE NAME -REGGAE- AND HELPED JOE HIGGS, JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE, WITH MY TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE TO DEVELOP THE MUSIC. BOB MARLEY, REGGAE, AND PETER TOSH WOULD HAVE BECOME WORLD FAMOUS WITH OR WITHOUT THE NAME-ISLAND RECORDS OR CHRIS BLACKWELL. LET US KEEP THE HISTORICAL TRUTH RECORDS STRAIGHT. CHRIS BLACKWELL HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CREATION OF TRENCH TOWN REGGAE AND THE MUSIC. TAKING A CHANCE ON BOB MARLEY AND PETER TOSH WAS ALL HE DID, NEVER SURE OF THE DIGNITY OF OUR TRENCH TOWN POOR YOUTHS. THE LOGIC IS SIMPLE-A=B, B=C, THEN A=C. DO YOU SEE THE PREDOMINANCE AND PRE-EMINENCE OF MY REGGAE CREATION IN ALL THAT? LET ME SHOW YOU- LET THE LETTER-A- STANDS FOR MY REGGAE. I, RAS CARDO HAVE THE DETAILED HISTORY OF THE TRUTH. THE CRITICS, AND CYNICS CAN PLAGIARIZE , TWIST AND STEAL WHAT THEY CAN PLACED THEIR HANDS ON, BUT THEY CAN NEVER CHANGE THE HISTORICAL TRUTHS. MY BELOVED BRETHRENS PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE AT THE HANDS OF WICKED MEN. I WILL BRING JUSTICE AND HONOR TO ALL OUR NAMES.TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE WILL RISE WITH MY REGGAE.

(c) “THE TRUTH WILL SWIM LIKE OIL”-MAMA SCOTT. THESE WORDS WERE FIRST SAID BY MY BELOVED MOTHER WHO RAISED US CHILDREN. HER PROPHETIC AND PROVERBIAL REPROVE HAS HELPED TO GUIDE MANY LIVES SINCE THOSE TRENCH TOWN DAYS.TODAY I BEAR WITNESS TO THE U.S. SWIMMER-LOCHTE SCANDAL, AND HEAR, ONCE AGAIN, MY MOTHER’S ADMONISHING VOICE. SHE WAS RIGHT! FOR AS OIL SWIMS/FLOATS ON THE SURFACE OF WATER, SO WILL THE TRUTH BE. IT CANNOT BE HIDDEN.

THE TECHNOTYRANNICAL-DRUG COMPANIES-SUFFERING THE SICK, THE POOR, THE DISADVANTAGED IN SOCIETY- BUT HOW LONG CAN THESE MERCENARIES OF FORTUNE LAST? A TIME IS COMING FOR THEIR DAY OF RECKONING. SOME SAY THE -“PROPER STUDY OF MANKIND IS MAN”- I DOUBT THAT VERY SERIOUSLY. BECAUSE IT IS THOSE WITHOUT A CONSCIENCE WHO SEEK MATERIAL GAIN FROM THE SUFFERING OF OTHERS, AND WOULD EVEN DENY THEIR OWN MOTHERS THE RIGHT TO LIVE. JAH WILL LOOK AT THEM FROM THE HEAVENS AND LAUGH, FOR HE KNOWS THAT THEIR DESTRUCTION DRAWETH NIGH.

LISTEN !- THE-LOCHTE-SCANDAL IN RIO. I SAY “THE TRUTH MUST SWIM LIKE OIL”. MY MOTHER NEVER LET US FORGET THOSE WORDS OF TRUTH. I WILL SAY THIS- IT IS A DAMN SHAME ON THE U.S. I AM ONLY GLAD THAT THERE WERE NO BLACK PERSONS AROUND TO TAKE THE FALL, IN THE COVER UP. I HAVE SEEN TOO MANY OF OUR PEOPLE GET BLAMED FOR THINGS THEY DID NOT DO. THE TRUTH AND FACTS ARE OUT THERE FOR ALL THOSE WHO GET ANGRY WITH ME FOR SAYING THIS TO SEE. SURELY, CRIME IS UNIVERSAL, BUT DO NOT TRY TO BLAME IT ON A POOR COUNTRY,A CERTAIN RACE OR CLASS OF PEOPLE, AN ETHNIC GROUP,AND BE COMPLICIT WITH OTHERS.HIS “INNOCENT” TEAM MATES MAY HAVE DECIDED NOT TO BE INVOLVED AND BE BLAMED FOR SOMETHING THEY DID NOT DO. HE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO-“LET THE TRUTH SWIM LIKE OIL”. THE IOC AND THE RIO AUTHORITIES WERE NOT GONNA MAKE THE WORLD LOOK DOWN ON THEM. THEY DID THE RIGHT THING. IF THIS HAD HAPPENED IN- JAMAICA- OUR PEOPLE WOULD HAVE SUFFERED GRAVE HARM IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD -AGAIN. “(c)THE TECHNOLOGY WE CREATE WILL ULTIMATELY DETERMINE OUR FATE”. THESE ARE MY WORDS OF PROPHECY. THE CAMERAS CAUGHT THEM ALL, RED HANDED, IN THIS NOW- (c)TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY. I AM RAS CARDO REGGAE. REGGAE AND RASTAFARI PROPHECY SAID- REVELATION TIME.
