The issues of June/July
thought a little dot on the map would not be in recession, when the
whole world is, is somebody in a deep dodo. We are in a worst
shape than we are being told. All is the big lie - the way
statistics are being collected and they are being used.
28th July 2009 Marion Williams made cynical use of her womanhood
- that is part of the course; it did not save Josephine but
in other cases…. Williams used the sweetest of sweetie voices,
in the softest of softie tones, the nicest of nicie ways with sexiest
of sexy body language because she could not find a way of evading anymore
although she could have refused to answer - remember what happen
to a certain Central Bank governor that was fired and how much he was
are not pure, they can evade as they like especially with an ignorant
population. Our government is founded on people, who have bad
advise while those, who have good advice are languishing outside.
It is going
to get worst until all the crooks that have stolen money have
to be locked up first. That includes the people at the auditing
firms that valued assets that suddenly went to nothing. Something
wrong because they are the people that are supposed to be the watchdogs.
Every now and again somebody draws that to our attention but they are
the real culprits that are being protected.
There was a
fellow on the television and he explained how the American government
let certain people fail and save certain people. They let competitors
fail so that the business would come a certain way. Every one
of those competitors that failed meant less competition and then AIG
is propped up at the expense of others.
If we think the ones we got around
here crooked the ones in the States are beyond crooked, beyond any words
and while they thief million about here they thieving billions in the
What we need
to realize is that more children are malnourished and starving and ordinary
people are bursting their ass working hard trying to support a family,
losing their houses and hurting and meanwhile the ones that smiling
are those, who go into lavish offices in some tall building and doing
sweet fuck all, going away on holidays and jetting around on private
jets. It is ridiculous.
We in this
island have to come back down to reality. Stanford legends
should be ashamed.
Financial giants apologised to the Queen a few days ago for not predicting the financial crash. What a joke, this was all planned by call it what you may, the Illumanti, one world government - and Marion Arthur, the Prime Minister et al just like the Queen cannot not know deliberately. It is a hoax being pulled on the people of this world.
The greed principle
operates. The government cannot be faulted to use what ever force
it can to apply to reduce the exorbitant prices of food inflicted on
this country but the oligarchy who just laugh at us and working with
the American monopoly companies and they do not intent to stabilize
or reduce any prices. American has a way of military intervening;
they do not say it is an overt policy but they put in their ships, they
put in their embargo, it is not as straight forward as saying let us
great bravado is his press conference on Tuesday. The bluster
with which he said some things knowing that he has an iceberg in front
of him not only from his intention to: “we going do inter-island trade,
we going have to do something about a ferry,” which has been talked
about for the last fifty years. The solution to Caribbean economies
is inter-island trade is bigger schooners but he spoke about LIAT and
The only times
aircraft deal with food is when Kennedy had that airlift into Berlin
or the UN food programmes. Does he want to drop food by aircraft?
Why did both
DLP and BLP not procure food at an affordable price? Ask Bobby
Clarke and his about his bout with Geest and the government in Dominica;
ask LoRon Gibbs and Lloyd Alleyne from Shamrock and myself what we went
through to get inexpensive food in the island. Goddards Shipping
was contracted to handle a Cuban boat and at the last minute, when the
boat was in the harbour with inexpensive oranges, white potatoes, guava
cheese, shrimp and lobster they refused to do so and refused to buy
any of our goods so too did Shipping and Trading and the BLP administration
sent machine guns on the boat. When the DLP came to power they
were more sneaky; Haynes introduced a 40% duty on oranges. What
about the inexpensive flour that was just harassed out of the island?
because it is topical and he has to satisfy somebody although it may
not be seen, it is obvious. He has to defend CLICO; he said not
to feel just because he was friends with a man that he got to do certain
things to help him, which is quite true – they do not have to sleep
in the same bed but that was still hedging to let certain parties know.
they are being bombarded and we do not know what goes on at an administrative
level. Before it is finished let us watch and see the interference.
There is another
regime to deal with in American and there are two ways to deal for the
Obama’s regime has to be brought down and the republicans and that
other lot have four years of hard work to do it so ours dare not seem
to be too liberal or we are in trouble. It is off the mark to
figure “we got one of we in the House” that is not true although
Obama is not as hog-tied as we are. The question is whether Obama
and Thompson are initiated in the club as would be suggested by Thompson’s
clothes may be falling apart but the sycophant that are close to him
that sit on his right hand and on the left that could tell him that
do not because they get reflected glory.
Where is the
cassava flour factory? What about sea island cotton and curing
onions blast? The trouble is that if they would do the business
and keep their goddam hands out of it, it might become successful but
all their toddies push their hands in and everything just blows up in
the air. Our Prime Minister is going to find that he does
not know what he is talking about; he does not have a clue about distribution
and his Minister of Agriculture behaves as if he is just one big loud
mouth and has always done so. The only thing that keeps his ears from
knocking together is his empty skull.
As far as press
conferences go we have not had a lot of good precedents poor Emanuel
Joseph we are not sure for whom he works he cut in one time and asked
a question when the P.M. was in some sort of dissertation. The
problem with the electorate is that they do not want to criticize the
man because “look around and see if you see someone that is better
in the existing political frame work who will replace him; right now
suppose he had a massive accident.”
They all want
to Stalinist plan, where the best thing would be to do right and the
situation, as CLR James wrote, will throw up a leader. One wonders
if these people ever licked the cake spoon or got the waffle out of
the ice cream turner.
plans were theory, which he put into so-called practice. The policies
were bad: he shipped around whole population and made committed targets.
Factories had to produce boots and they were warehouses full of boots
and cereal and no grinding machines. He used armed force.
uses not armed force but a spirit of vice while we need to look to a
generation of people that behave in tune with the body’s needs and
a spirit that is good. It is not altruistic; it is the only way
to face any kind of almightiness.
The most difficult
way of life is the way of good. It is easier to live like a pig
– there is no need to bathe, to put on clean clothes, expect somebody
not happen in a society in which they are so many, who think that they
are sophisticated. The way this country now sees sophisticated and what
it means is completely different - purchase a DVD player, a coloured
TV - although they only know how to switch it on, go buy DVD pirates,
watch them for three days and nights and nothing else, and when they
grow tired of watching them, they swap and they are happy.
Sophisticated means to look and take out and make look or be presentable. It means somebody, who automatically dresses well - looks better, feels better but this no longer has value. A young man washes his own clothes and when he goes out there is a seam in his pants. They ask: “Who he think he is?” Instead of: “Charlie has a good idea; let us spend half and hour and press our clothes too.”
of family is for children to spend holidays with parents, family and
friends. There were thousands, who could not buy a pair of pumps,
some had chiggers and had to scotch to walk and even when the chiggers
were got rid of pumps were still unaffordable, when Easter time our
holidays were spent at Silver Sands and the long summer holidays at
Bathsheba renting houses that were not expensive and slept two or three
to a bed. They were not grand houses like they are today, which
only the rich and famous can afford. Now that the
population is affluent they do not appreciate or do this. It was
the Barbadian sophisticated way - running with the sea breeze and walks
in the salt spray.
They now have
pumps. We are now a consumer society of spending habits. I
am not cheap I got a microwave and if I turn it on and some light ain’t
come on I can get another on credit from Courts.” They spend,
fly away, cruise away and do not get together in families and friends.
And the people who cannot afford are the ones that spend..
Mr. and Mrs.
Consumer build a lovely house and every year they work for more money
and add on a room and they know that they do well. They
end up with a house that only Sam Lords is bigger. Chiggers are
no more. There was a lot of malnutrition and there still is but
it is now cleverly “controlled malnutrition” - nutricide.
Healthy food is affordable, available and possible to get it here but
the problem is that our politicians are being squeezed by their genitals.
The water pipes are old, have never been changed and are leaking about 65% of our water. A Mr. Nurse, at the university, got up and said that the water rates wanted raising long time ago and intellectuals will pat him on the back. He is not going to the electorate and say that water free but it got a cost. People need water, water is given by nature and every single person on earth should have the necessary minimum of free water. VAT can pay for that but there is a global plan to sell water. (which we will be discussed next month.) It is another aspect of neatly fooling and fitting the folks into the fabric of a world wide fascist movement.
a. Al Gilkes’
silly column got sillier, when he wrote of his background and his feeling
of shame, when he used to collect water from standpipes and when he
bathed in a bucket. He trivialized the issue; it is not as simple
as water that people use to bathe.
It would be
wonderful if he went back there, as he suggested and never again grace
the doors of Sandy Lane. His entrance to Sandy Lane began decades
after those who, from its inception, were there at all hours of the
day and the night and never thought that they were those waiting to
sell us out. Sandy Lane was taken away and we are not welcomed
as was done in Palestine but that is to be expected from people, who
want others to believe that they own the whole earth and Gilkes is their
P.R. man. Please Gilkes go back to the standpipe, from where others
did not come and leave Sandy Lane.
b. Is it a
lost cause? Did I hear correctly? Last week, from former prime
minister, Erskine Sandiford, who cut salaries in an authoritative way
and when he cut some lost about $200 dollars a week. He
wanted to know what is an economy. He spoke about a Caribbean
single market and economy, regional unity and certain policies to do
with free trade. A single market is like when the Germanys got
back together - East Germany had a mark that was not worth a lot but
it was put on par with the West German and that is what is called single
market - take losses but it will be balanced out, together. The
Jamaica dollar is not to be expected to be on par with the Barbados
dollar but it has to be worked out together and there will be a lot
of headaches but that is for what they are being paid. “What
is an economy?” Imagine a Barbados scholar, who does not know what
an economy is. It sounds like a joke. The man actually posed the
question and people were there like Frank Alleyne, a strong DLP; he
got his professorship it must be worth something and CBC did not bring
anybody to question the sanity of that statement or find out if he needs
to go to before a board of lunacy. Sandiford is being sent as
an ambassador to one of the biggest countries in the world; he should
be a voice in the public that should be heard. Someone of that
frame of mind that questions some thing for which Barbados subscribes
is not going take instructions from a prime minister. China is
not next door a bus cannot go there.
just because it sounds like he speaks English. Mind you if you want to have a embassy and connections with China fair enough, if we think all’s well in China, jolly good!
There is no
magic mirror - the think and imagine and it is real kind - but a need
for enlightenment that can identify virtual images from real ones.
Jesus spent many years saying the same things and Confucius and then
there is Plato and Aristotle and all of those people.
400 years ago
in the Caribbean there was plenty. Our caring leaders, in the
Americas that started out altruistic have either been shot or, like
in this small island, manipulated out of existence. It is by and
large the coloured and black educated people that brought the society
up and many of them got strangled and discarded by the way; we do not
know enough about them. It was no thanks to the system.
value of greed is seen it is not possible to find many, who say when
I grow up I want to be a politician. Politician is a negative
because he is not trained and does not need to be qualified. There
needs to be a little core of youngsters, who want to make things work.
They can be found in the intellectual structure, even in Lots time and
a search for a dozen righteous men there was one. In this day
with better communication somewhere there are some that used education
when so many chose careers that had to do with just schooling.
will be called for they would have evolved and want to reform against,
those who just want to be a part of the system of power structure.
Without this the whole thing will collapse for gone will be the day
when an un-examined, second-class, political configuration and the Raysides,
good friends of the parties all over the place, continue to be not given
a hassle because after all they were poor, black men and the tax payers
in Green Hill are covered in dust.
This is what
happens when “you got to take it.”
Greed is authorized and recognized as a goal but it is not, it is mere
Ministers deliver speeches every week also at every meeting and everywhere - a minister is called to talk. Do they speak on party policy that is agreed on in cabinet or is it brainstorming? After all, the world is no longer inhabited by primates that have to invent a wheel or even a cog.
on being called honourable – they become honourable because that is
part of the title. It has happened already; they are in the House
and are honourable ministers so done with dat! It makes
no sense that every time they are spoken about it is honourable

When a fellow writer saw this policeman he had come back on the second
visit because he discovered that it was not true: “How can I see my
mother.” He said.
He had spent
almost a whole day agonizing on the fact that his mother was dead and
her body was not available to him to look at or to identify. It was
a whole balls-up, his mother was alive still.
If my friend went through another channel - for instance the time he
was actually dying and they were three young doctors trying their best.
He can hear them say something about an injection, his fingers are cold
and he tries to talk and cannot and it is only because a man passes
and looks over and he sees it is he. A heart surgeon, they
were not personal friends but obviously he reads the newspaper.

Were it not for that!

e.When it rains
they are huge puddles to be walked through at the entrance of the Queen
Elizabeth Hospital, is it possible that the Chief Executive Officer,
the Chief Nurse, the Chief Doctors and all the Chiefs and consultants
with all the money they make out of the hospital not to see? They

probably get somebody with a broom to sweep away the puddle when they

correct it now. At the back entrance there is a pile of water
for the longest time that has grown mosquitoes, which eat people.
the workers at the door said it was always so and that the big wigs
are aware of it. They say that the hospital is falling apart from
politics and personnel at the top do not care and that they have made
several complaints about several things. The sick public is not
being served. Please one of you powers that be place some guttering
or make a slope so that the poor sick people do not have to walk through
water for medical care.
The water from
the roof of the Q.E. H should be collected to water plants and more
fruit bearing tress like avocadoes and limes and mangoes and cherries
could be planted all around and around the playing field and why not:
“We not going get any. They going pick them and go and sell them expensive.”
They say, but what difference does it make. They just planted
ornamentals out there; all that walk above that bus stand they plant
with oleander and nonsense, and from the airport along the highway palms
at a rumoured $250.00 each. Plant mangoes! What is wrong with
mango growing all over the place like in the other islands and mangoes
will not be sold if they are expensive when children can pick them up.
modern society children are an economic liability not an asset. They
have to be fed, clothed, housed, looked after, educated and entertained.

standard. The obvious way to keep the household financially afloat

have to use twice a day is good only for and has been taken over by
big rats to breed and dirty water to wade through and others all with

going make fuss? “Oh Christ there she goes again.”
Compared to the fabulous, multi-million board and concrete walks for
two-week visitors. Do not speak about the lousy bus service.
Why cannot there be transfers so that buses do not leave Bridgetown
full for Josey Hill and when they get to Speighstown they are empty.
Feeder buses and transfer points at places like the Garrison, Speigtstown,
Oistins St. George etc. etc.
There is no
gun being used to enroll in these camps but what is being used is greed.
A lot of people think the camps are a good idea. Every hour on
television and radio citizens were told to enroll and now down in Belleplaine
some have not registered but parents, want to go somewhere or give the
outside man a chance, sent children to or left them at the camp and
said that the camps “got to keep them and feed them.”
As the great
industrialist Henry Forde said of the argument on whether The
Protocols of the Learned Elder of Zion were faked:
“All that I can say is that someone is
A Pale Horse by William Cooper: - In order to achieve
such conformity, the lower-class family unit must be disintegrated by
a process of increasing preoccupation of the parents and the establishment
of government operated day-care centers for the occupationally-orphaned
children. In order to achieve a totally predictable economy, the
low-class elements of the society must be brought under total control,
i.e. must be housebroken and trained and assigned a yoke and long-term
social duties from a very early age, before they have an opportunity
to question the propriety of the matter.
of education given to the lower classes must be of the poorest sort,
so that the mote of ignorance isolating the inferior class from the
superior class is and remains incomprehensible to the inferior class.
With such an initial handicap, even bright lower class individuals have
little if any hope of extricating themselves from their assigned lot
in life. This form of slavery is essential to maintaining some measure
of social order, peace and tranquility for the ruling upper class.”
Do not be fooled
because the camps are not of the compulsory military sort but there
is an element of that with the over riding spirit of get children off
the hands because there is nothing to offer during holidays is wrong.
Citizens are deprived of the means to bring up their own children e.g.
high cost of living - food prices, which are not affordable, raised
water rates, raised petrol prices etc. etc. and then the government
steps in takes them and trains them - mark one! Mark two! Mark three
modified to Mark five and it adds up.
