The can REGISTER all the machetes, and impose machete waiting periods. Limit purchases to one machete a month! And, no PRIVATE sales at machete shows! LOL!

Haiti has always been just an outpost of the Congo in the Western Hemisphere albeit with a tiny expatriate and mulatto business and political community

therein lies the problem

it is truly hopeless....damn shame...I spent a lot of time there after the Duvaliers and Bennetts left...it's worse than Africa in some respects

clarify...actually most Blacks in Haiti originated from Senegal and French Guinea..not the Congo and further southern West Africa like some British imports

and there is a difference...a marked physical one

Who’s dumber, the voodoo practitioners or the people who killed them because they thought voodoo caused the out break?

Africa all over again.

Don't forget, though, it was only a few hundred years ago that "witches" were being killed in the United States, only 80 years ago that ethnic groups were being credibly blamed for national woes and targeted for extermination, only a few decades ago that "recovered memories" were being used as the sole means of "evidence" of alleged horrific crimes (that included tales, interestingly enough, of witchcraft and human sacrifice) that sent many people to prison for life and that people were being deliberately manipulated by scares of toxic chemicals (the EPA and other agencies were created as a result and hundreds of millions died as a result of Wm Ruckelshaus of the EPA and his unilateral banning of DDT), and that now hundreds of billions of dollars and an untold number of jobs are being sacrificed on the altar of CO2/global warming/climate change. Times and places may change, but people are the same manipulable, superstitious lot that they've always been. The difference now, in the West, at least, is that relative few people are hacked to death but billions are impoverished and hundreds of millions die because of superstitions and their use to manipulate their fears.
