Yup. You certainly need no more proof than this incident to show that our Bahamaland is finished.

tribanon 2 years, 9 months ago on A NEW DAY - BUT WITH OLD FACES: Cabinet decision to hire retirees defended amid ‘double dipping’ claim

This is nothing more than the Davis led PLP administration putting their politically elite PLP friends back on the gravy train at great expense to less fortunate Bahamians who will be footing the bill by paying higher taxes and fees accompanied by a lower but much more costly standard of living.

Yup, it's proving to be quite a "New Day" indeed, with the worst possible over-tones of déjà vu from Vomit Christie's political era.

tribanon 2 years, 7 months ago on CIVIL SERVANTS BLOCK AUDITOR: Officials holding back documents stopping full probe of finances

Look at the irony of it all. Terrance Bastian is afraid to publicly disclose names and lacks the power to refer even the most egregious offenders to either the Attorney-General's Office or Director of Public Prosecutions. Yet the most egregious offenders have the power to press charges against Bastian if he dares to publicly name and shame them. But don't expect this Davis led PLP administration to give Bastian the teeth he needs to effectively do his job for the Bahamian people.

P.S.: Interesting that Bastian avoided mention of Bahamasair.

Given our rich pirate heritage and present governing party can we just keep them? You wanted hotels in Freeport! They even come with crew!

That ain't ever gonna happen. The very cruel Davis only cares about his wealthy friends and couldn't give a rats arse about poor struggling Bahamians except come election time when he wants your vote. Have you forgotten he decided to make priced-controlled food items subject to VAT? LOL

Clearly the reality of the situation has not sunk in for you. The game of kicking the can down the road is over because most Bahamians today simply do not have it to pay, whether it be their electricity bill or the taxes they can no longer afford.

tribanon 2 years, 4 months ago on Brave double down on Govt’s ‘hidden’ $650m

All of these corrupt and grossly incompetent politicians are crooks of the highest order, whether they be FNM or PLP. And if the Bahamian people they have royally screwed don't know that by now, then they never will.

By the way, when is the Davis and Cooper led PLP administration going to stop rehashing the past and start governing?

tribanon 2 years, 4 months ago on GOVT PAYS UP IN GIBSON LAWSUIT: $2.5 million settlement with ex-minister

Both Gibson and Ash should be serving hard time in prison, ideally in the same prison cell. The Courts finding that Gibson and his lawyers deserve a huge windfall pay day at great expense to the already over-burdened Bahamian taxpayers is laden with the disgusting scent of Vomit Christie, Cruel Davis and Puppet AG Pinder. And just think how this outcome emboldens others like Chester the Jester and Cruel Davis himself.

SP 2 years, 3 months ago on ‘URGENT’ MOVE ON CRIMEWAVE: PM holds conclave after recent spate of murders in nation

ABSOLUTELY NOT! Carlos Reid's so-called shock treatment program is a national disgrace! How the hell does further mental and physical abusing already neglected, lost, and abused youth supposed to make any sense? AND, where are the science, case studies, and results to support this lunacy?

It would be interesting to know how many of these very same fat clowns were instrumental in Carlos Reid's shock treatment program!

tribanon 2 years, 3 months ago on UPDATED: Minister of National Security Wayne Munroe releases statement

EVERY CABINET MEMBER WHO DOES NOT PUBLICLY CRY OUT FOR MUNROE TO BE IMMEDIATELY DISMISSED BY DAVIS FROM CABINET MUST BE DEEMED TO SHARE MUNROE'S ABHORRENT BELIEF THAT A SEVEN YEAR OLD GIRL HAS THE MENTAL CAPACITY AND MATURITY TO CONSENT TO BEING SEXUALLY ASSAULTED/RAPED.

MUNROE HAS CONFESSED TO THE ENTIRE WORLD THAT HE IS INDEED A PROFOUNDLY DISGUSTING, LOATHESOME, AND REPUGNANT CHOWDERHEAD WHO IS COMPLETELY UNWORTHY OF SERVING THE BAHAMIAN PEOPLE IN ANY CAPACITY WHATSOEVER.

DAVIS, COOPER, WILCHCOMBE, MITCHELL, PINDER AND EACH OF THE OTHER CABINET MEMBERS CANNOT POSSIBLY JUSTIFY IN ANY WAY MUNROE CONTINUING TO REMAIN AMONG THEM WITHOUT BEING DEEMED TO BE SUPPORTIVE OF HIS MOST DISGRACEFUL AND ABHORRENT VIEWS.

WE, THE BAHAMIAN PEOPLE, ANXIOUSLY AWAIT THE PUBLIC OUTCRY WARRANTED FROM EACH AND EVERY CABINET MEMBER AND FOR MUNROE'S IMMEDIATE REMOVAL BY DAVIS FROM HIS CABINET POST. NOTHING LESS WOULD BE APPROPRIATE OR JUSTIFIABLE IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES.

ohdrap4 2 years, 3 months ago on 'Everything on the table' as potential solution to soaring gas prices

Unlike the price controlled items, their margin is not fixed by a percentage.

So, if you are a dealer and buy gas at 5.00, your price at the pump is 5.45. So your profit margin is 9%.

If you buy the gas at 8.00, your price at the pump is 8.45. So your profit is 0.45÷8 or 5.6%.

Now let's look at the eggs, the margin is fixed by percentage, 10%. If you buy eggs for 5 dollars you sell at 5.50.

If you buy eggs for 8 dollars, you sell for 8.80.

So yes, like Tribanon says, the margin for tha dealer is set by amount and not percentage.
