The Star (St. Lucia) - - CLASSIFIED -

Ob­vi­ously, we’re go­ing bonkers, judg­ing by what we tol­er­ate and some­times pro­mote; self-de­struc­tion, for one. Then there’s VAT that for a while some of us had con­sid­ered the mother of all cure-alls, no mat­ter that we knew full well it was “an op­pres­sive law, anti-poor and anti-worker.”

Lately, we’ve taken to throw­ing rocks at the hands that fed us all th­ese years, just to im­press so-called non-tra­di­tional al­lies with whom we have noth­ing in common— save nutty lead­er­ship. And now we’re shi##ing BRICS as Venezuela chokes on its own oil and Castro the Younger reaches for the higher notes of The Star Span­gled Banner. What to do? Well, for one we can while away our idle hours along the na­tion’s road­sides with our co­co­conuts!
