“A man is the architect of his own success.” That being said I would caution anyone from living in house built by Desmond Steals; or believe an editorial written in the United States by his personal ghostwriter Barry Randle.
For months – no, for years now - we’ve all had to endure the hopeless rantings of a lunatic who fears the world is out to get him and that everyone is conspiring against him; and it’s gone from funny, to annoying to just plain sad. He’s thoroughly convinced that he is in no way, shape or form complicit in events leading to his own demise.
Demon asks in Monday’s Cayman Fake News, “So who’s to blame for this sad state of affairs?” referring to Cayman Airways’ refusal to ferry his birdcage liner to the Sister Islands.
Simple, Desmond: you’re to blame.
If Cayman Airways isn’t carrying your papers on their planes at their rates and by their rules it’s not because they’ve done something wrong; it’s because their conditions for performing their task by their rules have not been met. You’ve done something wrong. If you don’t like their rules, use other means to get your product where it needs to go.
“No other carrier flies to the Sister Islands,” you say? Then I guess you’ll need to play by their rules, or hire your own plane. You can’t simply create your own rules, play by them and then screw other people when no one else abides. That’s childish, idiotic and borderline psychotic.
But far be it for me to pass judgment on a man who, by his own admission, has encouraged the government to simply “write off all outstanding indebtedness from Cayman Airways in recognition of the sterling service provided by the carrier and its staff…”, but this makes no sense whatsoever and I’m trying to understand Dizzy’s logic on this. His dementia is making it quite difficult.
Regardless, Dismal, your reasoning is as flawed as your logic. It’s kind of like writing off paying your staff after Hurricane Ivan - right? I thought so. Simply writing off debt doesn’t make it go away, and certainly writing off all of CAL’s debt would certainly not be a very good political move, now would it?
That is tantamount to, say oooooh … the government operating a hospital, having the hospital run up a tremendous amount of debt and then having the government step in and forgive the debt because the hospital did such a good job making people well (like that would ever happen). And then firing the guys who try to fix it. And as well all know, that would never happen, right?
I’m guessing if the government tried that, the Cayman Crap News would be the first to journalistically emasculate the minister in charge and complete the farce by selling out to the politicians who would join forces to further chastise those who Despot Sleeze convinced deserved his derision.
But I suppose if the debt was forgiven, this whole problem of you not being able to get your paper to the Sister Islands might magically be all cleared up, right?
The answer to life’s problems may in fact include forgiveness, but in this case Desmond you’re looking to pull your own ass out of the fire by trying to convince the rest of us that your altruism is so far-reaching that we should all subscribe to unsound and financially irresponsible behaviour – like you do – and simply forgive past transgressions and move forward.
But that’s not how it works. To be forgiven you must first forgive and your pattern of irrational and desperate behaviour, and your total lack of concern for anyone but yourself and your precious publication, makes it perfectly clear that forgiveness - if given by us - will not be returned in-kind by you.
The truth is the only master you serve is the master you see when you look in your mirror each morning, which is why you’re in the spot in which you currently find yourself. You speak too much and think too little. You talk richly and act poorly. You don’t play by different rules, you play an entirely different game.
Nothing and no one is good enough for you, and you use your paper to ridicule those who, if given the inclination, could provide you any amount of support or guidance.
In the words of Sophocles, “Whoever thinks that he alone has speech, or possesses speech or mind above others, when unfolded such men are seen to be empty.”
We’re tired of your act Desmond.
