Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Stream + Tracklist): Jah-gust 12, 2017 – World War 3.0: The Ultimate Bad Hair Day!

<World War 3.0..; 16 sec..>

<…started by 2 guys with bad hair; 51 sec.>

Greetings,

Man am I exhausted by the divisiveness in this country and the world. Seems like we’re lurching to mass destruction through hatred and mean spiritedness. War is the first bag out of the club. Threats of war, sanctions, all negativity for surety.

What can we do? What comes first: Civil War in America or World War 3.0 in East Asia.

Reggae prophesied what happens  when nations result to wars and rumors of wars.

Wish I had something more encouraging to report. But I don’t. So let’s hope we can cool down the pace and get along in the rat race

Have no fear for atomic energy
‘Cause none of them can stop the time

-Bob Marley : Redmeption Song

bless, robt
