I am in a series of Posts on Time and thought hard and long whether I may not spoil it by this Post but it had to be said; this is not always the case with Time but I realized that there are times when you have to stick your neck out regardless of the consequences.
Americans of today generally fail the Test of Time because they live in a World of make believe of some past glory that comes from somewhere in the past that they have adopted as their own without even understanding the basics of Time.
Little Marco, oh let me call you Young Marco, you messed around in an adult World. To come today, from a youngster like you and only a first generation American to boot, to get hammered for your presumptuousness you might have been forgiven, but then to state that “America is a special place; where you come from does not determine where you are going,” heck, young man that is your problem. Step back Marco, let the people who have been there for twelve generations, proved themselves and paid their dues, yes, let them say that.
Marco, in Russia and China you would not have had a single chance. Ok, now I can hear you say that you don’t like them. You also did not like your Fatherland, Marco.
In Africa you would have been fish bait within one hour after announcing your intentions. Now don’t come telling me that you don’t like Africa either; it’s an old Continent. The leaders appointed by their forefathers are governing; the rest do as they are told. It works, I tell you it does.
OK, the colonials introduced a Western form of Government, telling the people they need a Democracy and things almost got out of hand, but the leading families re-introduced the old systems and advised the people that they would call it Democracy to keep the money flowing from America and to eat MacDonald hot fries.
Bide your time, Marco. You’ve screwed up and may not get a second chance for a long time. Pay your dues now and just don’t force things. Face it Marco, you only got as far as you did, and were allowed to do so by the Party to take the Don out. You failed, Marco and the DOP [that may be new to you; it’s now spelt with a D for Dead Old Party] will remember; it’s not a Party for brash youngsters in any event. They only used you as much as they are using Cruz now.
But that’s his problem. Don’t you go and tarnish your name now by throwing your lot in with Cruz.
Cheerio, sonny-boy; better luck next time.
