Dear Sint Maarten: I DON’T RESPECT YOUR SYSTEM ……I WON’T PROTECT YOUR SYSTEM


in regard to them wanting to censor me.. about MY island in the sun.. the one i love but cannot call home anymore as it is diseased by the corrupt…..

wanna judge me? go right ahead.. but i stand by my beliefs which is more than i can say for any so called ‘respected’ politicians on the island .. or police authority. their credibility is never questioned..but mine is? i am from there.. i have all rights to my opinion because i see the island going own the drain.. selling out..exploited… thousands of foreigners come to the island JUST to make money..to make millions.. how little you ALL know !!!!! but i get bashed for so called ‘coming to sint maarten looking for work. really? do u think your almighty american dollar pans up to the euro right no? i don’t rake in the cash as so many of you believe.. and for certain that’s why some of you hate me and use this against me cuz you’re oh so afraid that i come there to take your money. don’t be afraid of me.. be afraid of all the damn investors and foreigners who come to the island to fill your ponds, sell out your leaders and sell out your land. YOUR LAND !! placing concrete where nature once was…? why? because your dirty politicians get cuts. it is very simple.

I am begged for shoots.. and i charge cuz i ain’t gonna work for free. i have expenses too. i take my ‘trips’ and work my ass off for YOU. and i get backlashed in return when the opportunity arises. great loyalty. thanks.

your own people selling you out.. selling out your land and your morale.. for what ? FOR THEIR BENEFIT!!!! but i am scrutinised and burned at the stake because i speak up against all the corruption and i don’t decorate the island with lies for all the tourists who go there to risk their lives. you ALL know the truth!!! and you all know i have always preached about these things. it’s no secret. i never made it one.

i will NEVER forget which of you Sint Maarteners showed me support and asked a question before accusing and threatening. i WILL remember all of you who were quick and happy to share the posts with your friends and judging me.. i will NEVER forget your names. trust me. i will remember the names of my clients who stayed true to me. and those of you who were the first to come reprimanding me and getting on nasty with your accusations and threats.. you have a special place in my thoughts.

now…..on to it..
if u are able to read and understand these difficult words then go right ahead. some of you may need a dictionary. a
and don’t go getting offended from what i am saying… b/c u want 15 mins of fame. who the cap fits fucking wears it. i’m not judging any of you. but those who know who this is for will know.

Lauryn Hill describes it perfectly, i’v always loved this song and it very much applies.

“Is no type of solution
Preventin’ me from freedom
Maintainin’ your polution
I won’t support your lie no more
I won’t even try no more
If I have to die, oh Lord
That’s how I choose to live
I won’t be compromised no more
I can’t be victimised no more
I just don’t sympathize no more
Cuz now I understand
You just wanna use me
You say “love” then abuse me
You never thought you’d loose me
But how quickly we forget
That nothin’ is for certain
You thought I’d stay here hurtin’
Your guilt trip’s just not workin’
Repressin’ me to death
Cuz now I’m choosin’ life, yo
I take the sacrifice, yo
If everything must go, then go
That’s how I choose to live

No more compromises
I see past your diguises
Blindin’ through mind control
Stealin’ my eternal soul
Appealin’ through material
To keep me as your slave

I get out of all your boxes. you can’t hold me in these chains
I’ll get out. I want out of social bondage. Knowin’ my condition. Oh, is the reason I must change

See, what you see is what you get
Oh, and you ain’t seen nothin’ yet
Oh, I don’t care if you’re upset
I could care less if you’re upset
See it don’t change the truth
And your hurt feeling’s no excuse
To keep me in this box
Psychological locks
Repressin’ true expression
Cementin’ this repression

PROMOTIN MASS DECEPTION SO THAT NO ONE CAN BE HEALED !!!!!!

I DON’T RESPECT YOUR SYSTEM
I WON’T PROTECT YOUR SYSTEM

When you talk I don’t listen
Oh, let my Father’s will be done

I just accepted what you said
Keepin’ me among the dead
The only way to know
Is to walk then learn and grow
But faith is not your speed
Oh, you’d had everyone believe
That you’re the sole authority
JUST FOLLOW THE MAJORITY
Afraid to face reality
THE SYSTEM IS A JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, you’d be smart to save your soul
Oh, and escape this mind control

YOU SPENT YOUR LIFE IN SACRIFICE .

TO A SYSTEM FOR THE DEAD !!!!!!!!!

Oh, are you sure…
Where is the passion in this living
Are you sure it’s God you servin’
OBLIGATED TO A SYSTEM
Getting less then you’re deserving
Who made up these schools, I say
Who made up these rules, I say
Animal conditioning
Oh, just to keep us as a slave”

and that is all i have to say.

i don’t care for your bullshit opinions against me. i don’t care for your tactics to ruin me. i don’t give a fuck. because i’m not after sint maarten. i’m on to bigger better things. which do not involved diseased mentalities and sell out characters.

i am just too effin good for that bullshit.

Cockfighting is Barbaric. Please help STOP this ..happening in my own hometown . We need your signatures !!!!!!


Be the Change You Want to See !!! Please SIGN for this cause.

Dear All…

The Government of Sint Maarten – the island where i was born and raised – condones cockfighting.. claiming that it is part of our ‘culture’ . I don’t know what culture they grew up with but this is NOT part of mine. It is an act of cruelty, selfishness and SHOULD NOT BE CONDONED, CONTINUED OR CONSIDERED PART OF ANY CULTURE !!!!

They HAVE the power to stop this …yet they consider it something which is ‘okay’ . .. We are well aware that if a human being can condone an act of cruelty on an animal…. a being with NO VOICE.. then we can also be aware of what THAT human being is capable of doing to his fellow man. I URGE you to think about this. and help us stop this moronic nonsense !!!!

I have over 9000 fans (on my facebook fanpage) I’ve quite a large network.. not to brag but to prove a point..that if people are listening.. we can speak up and be heard… nomatter how impossible the goal.

….. i do not believe in having a fanbase/network if i cannot do something to make a change in this already messed up world we live in. I want to be the change i want to see… i need YOU to help me.

I urge you.. to take a minute or two.. and PLEASE .. sign the petition.

” Cockfighters hack off the roosters’ wattles and combs (the flesh at the top of their heads and under their beaks) before a fight in order to prevent other roosters from doing the mutilating themselves.  The birds’ natural spurs (the bony protrusions on their legs) are cut off so that cockfighters can strap on razor-sharp 2-inch steel blades, which are capable of puncturing lungs and gouging eyes.  The birds are partly plucked, oiled and injected with a special mixture to harden the skin and to make them aggressive.  Two birds are then placed in an enclosure where they fight to the death.  The dead losers are dumped together with the severly-injured winners, also left to die.

Cock fighting is all about gambling.  Huge sums of money change hands amongst the supporters of this blood sport.  Spectators crowd around the ring to shout and encourage their chosen bird to kill its opponent.  The bloodier the better.” 

We have nearly 3000 signatures on the online petition. Please continue sharing it and let’s get 5000 in 2 weeks!

please please please HELP US  HELP THEM!!!!

Today’s Horoscope…


People and situations have a tendency to become very elusive, unhelpful or inflexible when they sense they’re expected to yield or succumb to a justice of any variety. You would like to see something done fairly. you believe n imbalance exists where there ought to be balance. This will sort itself without any intervention from you.

BARBARIC!!!! SHAME ON YOU EURO-CUP!!! SHAME ON YOU !!!


I am deeply bothered by the news of dogs being burned alive in mobile incinerators in the Ukraine..in the efforts of cleaning up their streets for the sake of euro-cup. Shame on the euro-cup organizers for allowing this? really? i thought we lived in a day and age where JUSTICE was something we fought for? I’m supposed to raise children in this world? it’s a damn shame. it is sickening.

If it were homeless people and children they were doing this to…. you TOO would be outraged !!!! but because it’s an animal you may not feel any compassion… if that is the case…shame on you too. we are all ‘god’s children are we not? we all bleed…we all feel pain…. educate yourselves and do the right thing. BOYCOTT this madness !!!! I have zero respect for the eurocup, soccer teams, managers, organizers, fans and the countries who condone this. I am DEEPLY saddened and bothered by this.

Nam Myoho Renge Kyo… may you see the light and suffer accordingly for your actions.

Horoscope – just blogging


” Something is within your reach. You can practically see it yet the frustrating thing about anything being in your reach is , we strive to grasp it and discover we’re just slightly too far from it to grasp it properly.  That sums up a situation you’ve been in for some time and as much as you wish you had a firm grasp of what you want, you’re not entirely sure you have enough energy or patience that claiming it will require. The answer? Let it move close to you. Soon, it will do precisely that. ”
