Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping poor Henry Greene not even in the ground a week

By Ralph SeeramLast week’s article on the poor standard of essay writing in Guyana generated quite a few responses, especially from bloggers, some humorous. On the subject of Facebook, one reader commented that children should have their faces in their books, face up their books and face their books.One reader said she had cause to call the Ministry of Education after she observed a group of high school students who were in uniform at an Internet café during school hours, all on Facebook. Some said the Government can’t do it all; parents have to take responsibility also.Speaking of the weakness of writing essays and reading comprehension, it would seem that the school kids do not have the monopoly on this; it looks as if it’s extended to APNU and the PNC. The APNU/PNC has exposed a lack of reading and comprehension skills to the general public, even holding a press conference to expose the lack of reading skills.What other conclusion can you arrive at? The party spent weeks negotiating the Terms of Reference (TORs) for the Commission of Inquiry looking into the shooting death of the three young men in Linden. APNU/PNC helped craft the agreement, agreed to it, now it is “displeased” with it.The Party had an Attorney, no less, representing it but still did not understand what it agreed to. One gets the impression it did not understand what it agreed to. Talk about a Public Relations disaster. Who is its Public Relation Officer? The supporters must be shaking their heads asking, who are these incompetents that represent us.As I recall, the opposition parties objected to the inclusion of terms that would have seen the Commission of Inquiry looking into who the agitators were behind the protests that led to the shooting deaths,NFL Jerseys Wholesale, the reason being people have a constitutional right to protest. Fine; what they should have said is people have a right to PEACEFUL PROTEST within the laws of the state.Blocking public highways, destroying roads, burning private and public properties, robbing and extorting money from drivers passing through the town, in my view, do not constitute peaceful protest and I have said this before.Now APNU/PNC (I have a difficulty differentiating one from the other) wants the Commission to inquire why the police took action against persons who were engaged in the illegal activities mentioned above. The news report said “APNU is disappointed that the terms of reference do not extend to the reign of terror inflicted on the people of Linden on the 2nd and 10th days of August 2012. Many persons were shot and maimed,Wholesale NFL Jerseys China, and several communities subjected to assaults by tear smoke and gunfire on the 2nd and 10th day of August 2012”.Reign of terror? I thought that was inflicted on the people of Linden by the “peaceful protesters” isolating the town from the rest of the country. During those days Linden became a lawless town, whether the opposition will want to accept it or not. The police had to restore Law and Order and the Rule of Law. They had to end the mayhem in the streets.I doubt if that can be equated to a “reign of terror”. In my view, let’s investigate the police actions in restoring law and order, but, let the Commission inquire into the role of the opposition parties leading up to and after the shooting deaths. After all, “it cuts both ways”.Mr. Basil Williams and Joseph Harmon cannot “have their cake and eat it”.Some people can’t let the dead rest. Janet Jagan died years ago; poor Henry Greene not even in the ground a week,Cheap Jerseys, yet a writer for this paper thinks that their children should “bad talk them”. Growing up I was always told not to “speak ill of the dead”. Obviously the dead can’t reply, and as I said in a previous column only a coward would attack the dead.This writer had the nerve to compare the daughters of the deceased to Hitler’s secretary. Children will judge their parents in their context as parents, not their public life. There is a difference.  Many of us are too judgmental; we like to pass judgment on others without looking at ourselves. We know the old saying,Wholesale Jerseys China, “Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones”. The Bible puts it another way when Christ said,Cheap NFL Jerseys, “he who is without sin cast the first stone”. Those of us who are Christians must remember we ask God to “forgive our sins as we FORGIVE those who sinned against us”.I was thinking that if this writer dies what his daughter would say reading his obituary. It probably will go like this.” My father was a pain in the butt; he was an annoying individual; he fancied himself as political analyst but in reality he was an entertainment writer.“People read his column for its comedic value. He was a one dimensional writer. His only subjects were Bharrat Jagdeo and the PPP Government, and he found it difficult to transcend his writings beyond those two subjects.“He indulged in character assassination sometimes without any facts to support his allegation. He distorted people’s position to fit his facts; he fancied himself an intellectual but in reality he spent over twenty-five years as a mediocre university lecturer. He felt that he would die a martyr; instead he died in a lunatic asylum a victim of his own ego. And yes my father was an idiot”.Ralph Seeram can be reached at email: [email protected]
