mynameis 12 years ago on 'There is a war in the Bahamas' - Security Minister

"Describing crime as the most serious challenge facing the Bahamas, Dr Nottage called on the opposition to form an understanding with the Government, that partisan politics must take second place to national development and growth." Boy, the tune done change and we barely past the one-month mark. In opposition, the PLP boldly proclaimed their partisan view of the crime situation in this country: It was the FNM fault! Now they are in the hot-bullet-ridden-rotting-corpses seat and it's now a non-partisan problem. Interpretation: Crime has nothing to do with the government in power. (sigh)

Concerned 12 years ago on Statue of Sir Lynden to be raised at airport

Why is a statue of Sir Lynden necessary? 1. The airport already has his name on it? 2. There is already a large plaque with his name and importance on it, posted in the airport 3. There is a large sign at the entrance of the airport that every person coming and leaving the airport will see. It appears like overkill to me - guilt or retributive tribute. This is NOT an national decision, is plain political greed to prey off the grassroot supporters'. The national decision was in the naming of the airport after Sir Lynden. Anything commemorative after that is a personal decision.

rumpole 11 years, 6 months ago on BEC's $24.3m loss swing 'a shocker'

Free pension! Never heard of that before. I thought unions were there to provide fairness. With these kinds of benefits the electricity costs becomes unaffordable. If people cant pay or they cut back on consumption, B E C cant sell what they projected so they increase cost and we all suffer. These unions will sink our country if we allow them to continue their selfish agenda.

RodCoffee 11 years, 4 months ago on What the web shop employees and patrons say after the vote

Can someone please explain to me why is it that we allow these number bosses and an incompetent government to Confuse us. Why do they try to manipulate us into believing that if these Web cafes are shut down the money that a patron would of spent at these illegal businesses would be thrown in the garbage, vanish off the face of the earth, or no longer be added to the countries GDP. What would really happen is these web cafe' patrons would probably now take that same money and start spending it where they should of been spending it a long time ago i.e. B.E.C and other utility bills, food stores and restaurants, investments, Educating their children. I can think of a million better ways to spend hard earned money. I'm 100% sure if the government would of shut the number houses down other businesses would of seen an increase in sales. Therefore forcing them to increase their number of employees. It's like 2 plus 2 equals 4 or am I the only person in this country good at math. Why is there people that's so concern about the web shop employees and not the weak minded mother that loses her entire pay check spinning and is no longer able to feed her children. Finding a solution for 3,000 unemployed persons is much easier than finding a solution for entire nation. I've lived in other countries and I've never seen gambling affect so many households like it does in The Bahamas. The majority of Bahamians are not strong minded and disciplined enough to be able gamble freely. Who knows the damage these web shops have already done directly and indirectly to our country , and I'm sure if it continues it will be devastating. 0

Concerned 11 years, 4 months ago on What the web shop employees and patrons say after the vote

This article gets no sympathy from me. All these people fully knew that Number houses were illegal when they started working there and even before the referendum there was always a fear of being raided by the police. They are all adults and made adult decisions to work at these places. Not because a job pays the bills means that it is justifiable. I know a few strippers and see a lot of prostitutes around town. Trust me, their jobs pay their bills as well but...... Sorry. It is hard to say but there is no sympathy. Pick up a trade, sell newspaper, make shell jewelry, babysit, clean houses, start a lawn care business, wash windows; there are all kinds of legitimate ventures that positively minded Bahamians can do to make money. Sorry. No sympathy, only hard reality.

Before they begin to drill. They need to deal with this oil spill by BEC. If they cant even contain that what makes you think they have the sense to partner with another company and explore anything?lol
