This is from an opinion editorial posted on the Los Angeles Times, August 24, 2011

[in the mean time]

An opposition-led Parliament twice has nixed Martelly's choice for prime minister. Without one, Martelly and Haiti are left without a functioning government.

...In Haiti, which has a long history of both natural and man-made disasters, the consequences of political squabbles can be dire. But Martelly shouldn't shoulder all the blame.

WE CAN DISCUSS THIS UNTIL WE TURN BLUE OR WE CAN LOOK AT A WAY TO FIX THIS MESS. THE FIRST PROBLEM WE ARE FACING IS ARISTIDE! HE SHOULD BE EXILED AGAIN AND HIS ASSETS FROZEN SO HE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO INTEFERE WITH THE INTERNAL POLITICS OF HAITI! SAME THING WITH PREVAL, AS LONG AS WE HAVE THESE PEOPLE INFLUENCING THE OUTCOME OF THE POLITICAL PROCESS NOTHING WILL BE FIXED.

MONEY IS THE MOTIVATION FOR THESE PEOPLE AND THEY HAVE CORRUPTED MOST OF THE LAWMAKERS OF THE COUNTRY ALREADY.

These Haitian officials don't give shiiiit or a rat ASS about the tents duellers.

They don't even care if they had a load of shiit next to their food.
Haitian officials are pigs with dog

I would like to help the government, but the keep on practicing their selfish philosophy:keeping competent people out of the door just to drive the country to an infinit
