May sound small but for a person on minimum wage, it will be 10% of their income and 12-15% of their take home pay. Not saying it may not be worth it... just saying.

When the big time drug lords try to quit and give up the illegal trade it is the family and friends who are use to attending parties where the drug lord ‘makes it rain ‘ or his former associates in crime say to him , ‘ ma bey you can’t quit now.’ I still owe people,’ tThis wat brings him back into the game . Drugs Tum Human Trafficking... so they never quit.. never ever!

John 1 day, 14 hours ago on Disney's Lighthouse Point proposal approved by National Economic Council

Well the decision could have been anticipated. You cannot go to Grand Bahama and purchase hotel property in attempts to revive that island's economy and then shut out a project in South Eleuthera that has significant economic benefits, including employment that can reach as far North as the island extends. One Eleuthera must now show that they were not opposing Disney just to oppose and they must now demonstrate they are capable of carrying out some of the plans they put forward, at least on other parts of the island. And government must now hold Disney strictly to the terms of the agreement, in terms of investment, protection, and preservation of the environment, employment of Bahamians and the free access of Bahamians to the historic and sacred parts of the island. And signs should be posted informing Bahamians and the general public that they have unrestricted access to those parts of the island./cay.

John 2 days, 4 hours ago on PM defends post office deal with minister

The malls were constructed in response to a speech by then Prime Minister, Sir Lyndon Pindling, that the time has come to end the monopoly the Bay Street Boys had on commerce in the country. And it was his government’s intention to create opportunities for other Bahamians in the Bay Street area. And the Bay Street Boys responded by coming over the hill and constructing malls in areas where only small, (yes black) businesses existed. And not only that, the mall operators ensured that ‘certain ‘ tenants renting space in the mall were not successful. In the case of Town Center the owners went into direct competition with their tenants, making it impossible for them to turn a profit and having to eventually close shop. So now the mall has become a barely occupied shell. So has Bay Street. And the owners have been calling out to government to throw them a lifeline. Not because they need financial assistance, per se, but in order for the mall to be sustainable the numbers of persons going there must increase. Retail stores alone cannot do this, especially now since local retailers have learned to ‘Beware Town Center Mall.’ So yes Symnonette as calling out to government to throw Town Center a life line. But what about the hundreds of smaller Bahamians who are struggling in this depressed and brutal economy? What about them? The difference between them and Symnonette is he is trying to save his mall while they are trying to put bread on the table. Forget the lights being off and other bills not being paid, for them it’s a matter of survival. For them and their families. So go ahead and throw out the lifeline to Town Center Mall. But what you gonna do for the smaller, lest fortunate, long suffering Bahamians? Many of whom their businesses it was Town Center’s Mall intent to destroy.

John 2 days, 14 hours ago on 'Inconceivable' for Post Office woes to continue further

So what about the piece of property on East Street ( between the Hills that Brent Symnonette agreed to donate to the Bahamian people? Why does this property now have ‘For Sale’ signs on it. Symnonette was a member of the Hubert Ingraham cabinet and agreed to donate the property for public/green space/park.

John 2 days, 20 hours ago on PM defends post office deal with minister

Three points: One Minnis must now explain what makes Town Center Mall so much better than The Independence Shopping Center that was under preparation when he came to office and was stopped dead in the water. Two: Renward Wells assertion that the people can no longer do without a post office is moot and a demonstration of the political selfishness of this government. This was the issue when the FNM came to office. The office staff were suffering from deplorable working conditions and the general population was without or was with limited post offices services. Renward sounds like a retard even saying this. His government delayed and held back in terms of progress and development.the relocation of the post office, strictly on terms of politics and to grant the lease to one of their own (greedy as he may be. In fact has any other politician benefited financially and otherwise,more from being in government, than he? ). And finally so to Minnis is ok with the policy that, should he lose the next elections, the new government comes in and terminated contracts in effect, work in progress and plans on the table, strictly on the terms of politics...you can't be serious. but you are!
