WITHOUT A doubt the Governor has been living like a KING on OUR dollars as if he doesn’t get a salary. There is also no doubt from what the FBI has exposed is that the GOP was clearly the Governor’s Lords and Earls over their Kingdom of the NMI.

Figuratively, to emphasize his royalty the King who literally inherited his crown in a succession of GOP leaders going back to the 20th Century. The NMI Kingdom has literally been on an economic and social rollercoaster for tooooo many lows of economic and social transitions that have virtually done the People just like a rollercoaster that takes you right back to where you first got on. I’m sure most readers can see the similarity of a rollercoaster ride to the past 22 years of GOP rule and we are right back with an uncertain economy. Heck, we have even heard the screams and yells from the minority to no avail just like on a rollercoaster ride. Us regular folks in-the-cheap-seats are getting off this GOP ride in the midterm for a new and better one!

Kings have traditionally been leaders who were adept at keeping the People at bay, confused, worried with fear and even challenging their loyalty. Well, our King Torres has definitely kept voters at bay, especially the retirees and those naïve enough to believe his deceitful lies. His ability to confuse the people and the issues are literally a matter of Public Record in how he dealt with the CW issue virtually in conflict with Kilili who had to do the work in Washington for the People, not the Governor. But he kept running to Washington and even taking his own delegation to give the appearance that he was in front of our National Politics when it was really the duly elected duty of Kilili, not him. Our king certainly made his people mad and worried with austerity that we all now know was a mound of political stinky stuff. Now our King is challenging our loyalty to defend him against the FBI by asking us to respect the process and he will be cleared — meaning don’t go against him and to wait until there is a final verdict from the courts before holding him accountable like we can’t read or don’t have common sense to SEE he is already guilty and anything that follows is just a legal formality. This is how our Governor talks to us-folks-in-the-cheap-seats which is just insultingly ugly.

Kings tend to have the belief that they are much smarter than their people which is part of their rational for being king. It was evident in the Kandit exposure of CNMI crimes that gives credence to this well-known perception of kings thinking they can out-smart their people. But the big KILLER for Kings is when they start thinking they are actually BETTER than everyone else like the First Class with Spouse trips on OUR dollars that were against the law. Most readers may not know about the French Revolution that was really inspired by the American Revolution which is why the French gave us the Statue of Liberty. But it should be noted that King Louis XVI, born Louis-Auguste, was the last king of France before the fall of the monarchy and his wife Queen Marie Antoinette was the last Queen of France before the French Revolution — both were beheaded for mistreating their people while they were living high but the people were literally starving under AUSTERITY. While we don’t expect for our King and spouse to lose their heads but they will lose their crowns that many of us-folks-in-the-cheap-seats can’t WAIT to take back.

One of the FIRST priorities of America’s founders was “NO MORE KINGS” and yet We the People on the mainland with #45 and here in the CNMI with Governor Torres are dealing with leaders who THOUGHT they were Kings. They both remind me of the famous movie “the Man who would be King” who ended up being killed by a non-believer. Kings are a thing of the past and those who want to be king need to rethink their life’s strategy. Those who don’t learn the lessons of history are DOOMED to make the SAME mistake of wanting to be king and Governor Torres is our most recent classic example of one who wanted to be King. NO more kings and Biba Democrats for a better Government for us-folks-in-the-cheap-seats.

Attacking commenter

Most readers know how much I love to respond to commenters as they continue to give me a NEW diving board for promoting the TRUTH! I was wondering WHEN the GOP was going to try and start countering my Epitaphs and now it seems a King of Karma has finally surfaced. First, he makes allegations against Dr. Lawrence Camacho and then challenges me to prove my activities in the Civil Rights Movement back in 1968. This is not the first time for a commenter to do something so stupid as it has already been tried too many times going back to when I first mentioned my Intelligence Quotient (IQ) being 139 only one point from being certified a genius by the state of Tennessee and my critics went ballistic with their idiot comments.

FYI king of karma, here is some BAD karma you created for yourself. Everything I say about myself is true and a matter of Public Record most of which PSS already have on file, so go find the information you want on me just like you were doing research on Dr. Camacho’s medals. Calling me out to prove myself is for FOOLS because who are YOU to try and put me on the spot. As for my involvement and pictures in the Civil Rights Movement I don’t have to prove anything and if people don’t want to believe me they don’t have to — it’s their problem and you are not my boss lord king or savior. Furthermore, back in 1968 there were no cameras like today and in fact the only real recorded history of our meetings and marches with Dr. King was done by TV and a well-off minister who was able to afford the expensive video cameras of that day. If there is a record of SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee) at LeMoyne-Owen College you will see my picture or name but asking me for proof is absolutely ridiculous as I was only 17years of age when Dr. King was killed and I’m 69 now, duh! How would you like for me to ask you in the Public News Paper for some proof of something about you that took place over half a century ago (52 years ago) — this is what I meant by foolish comments.

Dr. Lawrence Camacho is not running for office so WHY is the King of Karma so interested in him and what is probably a “typo or an honest error” to try and insinuate he is lying about his medals — how dare you do such a public thing to a real CNMI HERO! WHY in the world would the King of Karma want to call out Dr. Lawrence Camacho just because he was the Democrats’ Keynote speaker? It tells anyone with a trained political eye that the GOP are ALREADY afraid of Dr. Camacho and want to try and get him on the defense. Trying to tie Dr. Camacho and me together in your comments was a BAD political play because neither one of us will be candidates for election in the midterms — so PARK IT and when it comes to politics because you are obviously out of your league messing with me!

I will give you credit for being right about the fact that we don’t need to be promoting CWs but FYI, I was not promoting CWs but the CW Transition which is a big difference and it is not a dead horse but very much alive so please stop twisting my words. I’m not trying to exploit CWs nor promote CWs as my focus is getting more LOCALS in the workforce, duh! You also need to know King of Karma, that I write from my own experiences as they are TRUE and the BEST reference for LIFE and I’m not trying to grandstand. I can’t help it that I have a RICH and diverse history experiencing many things that the People here have only heard about so sorry if I burst your bubble but you need to find someone else to pick on. I can defend myself and topics by “standing on a square and defending myself in all 360 degrees” and leave Dr. Camacho out of this, it’s not going to work!!! This King attacked the credentials of Dr. Camacho and me in what seems to be politically motivated stink and had the nerve to say “I don’t want to get into a whole tirade about this, but you seem to be beating a dead horse while blowing your own horn” which is hogwash and I DON’T CARE what you want King of Karma! Don’t call me out in the news and expect for a welcoming mat so the next time like my wife would say, just stay in your lane dude. Who do you think you are as you are NOT my King!!! To be continued: One People One Direction.
