Weve all been driving on the stupid side of the road, Samoa

Ridiculously Hard-headed Dicktator


Uncle Tui said that the reasoning behind introducing Right Hand Drive to Samoa next year is to make it easier for the Samoan family to be more mobile, move inland and be safe from rising sea levels!!!


Ahem!

Where do I start?


Gawd, it seems like this dude needs a knock on the left side of his brain to get back to his right senses!!!


I am so truly dissapointed with *Uncle Tui, because up until this very (politically) suicidal decision, I have actually admired his initiatives in the last few years, thrusting Samoa forward in such a stunning manner, siphoning grants and funding from every nook and corner possible, yet still standing tall and claiming an air of self-sustanance.

Simply put, we're broke as, we appreciate your help Mao Tsu Tung, but fark up off, we're independent and proud and stand on our own two feet!
(Albeit vae poua feet).

Isa Laia!

For so long, *Uncle Tui has been the mastermind behind the economic successes of our beloved Samunda.

This is the same man, or shall i say, this WAS the same man who has been flirting with China, two timing Hellen and Bainimarama and cavorting with global funding/donor agencies only to say ...ia, o le au vaega lea e maua mai ai tatou tupe,.. while the palagi is standing there brimming with confusionism all over?


Right Hand Drive to be introduced next year. July.

No consultation, no planning, just word on the street and then auoi a...into the Palemene. For the sake of the 2 foreigners reading my blog, Palemene is samoan for the house of bribery-elected members of the public, with lots of money and several titles- who effectually make decisions for the rest of Samoa. (exept for the two independent mps, who don't need titles, as they own the bank and the whole of beach road).

PLease do not think i'm anti-government.

I'm not.

I'm just anti-stupid political- decision-making-without-any-common-sense.

In fact, If elections were tomorrow, I'd vote for HRPP again. Because, ummm, well, coz thats the only political party in my kauntry hahahah...and coz my uncle's aunty's cousin's husband's brother went for our itu malo and our matai say we had to vote for them.(Democracy Samoan-style)


Anyhow,
*Uncle Tui justified the RHD move as common sense, in that your right hand is your lima poto (yikes!!) and your lima agavale, is your what..lima valea?
So we've all been driving on the stupid side of the road.


God save Samoa, quickly please coz our democratically elected leaders are just driving us into a ditch. And please opposition party, stop bitching amongst yourselves and get your shit together. At the rate things are progressing (or rather regressing/ or would it be depressing) if Uncle Tui decided tomorrow we all drive upside down or all the men in the government building wear pink panties, they probably will!



*He's actually not my uncle, I'm just name-dropping and using the term in an endearing manner to give personality where its needed.

Have a swig of your own medicine mate...

Churen, use "flaneur" in a sentence.


Writers, use "accountable" in a sentence.

I remind myself of that all ta toime, i.e. If you are prepared to write, be prepared for the reprecussions, be prepared to have your ego punched once in a while and at same instance, be prepared to take criticism.

Because, YOU are the biggest critic around.


If you are ready to put your name to print, speak your moind, hurt peoples feelings, ponder on what you believe in (in the name of freedom), then honeychild, have a swig of your own medicine.

Over and Out.
