  1. Piss StinkLiar cannot tell the truth if he try to. He was trained by one of the Biggest Liars to ever appear on political scene in Barbados. Lies are second nature , so second nature that they lie in even when they sleeping.

    This Government is the worst Government in the history of Governments anywhere in the world and other places.
    I have been saying so for the longest time now. People now catching on : all yuh too slow

  2. BTW thanks for removing that offensive looking photo/face from the BU banner
    It had looked ‘funny; and really did scare me. It reminded of a sssssnake head .

    True ! –I dont know why !

  3. Lime severs 200
    as soon as the Government start doing it; the private sector will do it without haste or consideration. They see it as an excuse and the Government nor Unions can tell them nothing.–More despair !

  4. People are desperate; this Government has filled the atmosphere with an air of despair. I blame the DLP Government for what happened to that poor 18 year old girl today. You think if she was living in a happy Barbados, she would do that to herself? The girl lost all hope because of this stinking Government–the worst anywhere in the known world.

    John Boyce is a big stink mout Liar when he says that the 24 million dollar cut will have no impact on healthcare. Was this 24 million being wasted on paper that you can do without. ? All of this nonsense impact young minds, make the world feel like a place that is not worth it.

    Trust me it has a psychological effect on people and people react. Some react different from others and blame themselves and commit the ultimate sacrifice. It happens

  5. TGI Friday also closed its doors today as well.

    Just Asking, Barbados is going over the cliff for sure! We warned them and they would not hear!

    sorry just asking but the above post is the worst shit posing as INFORMED COMMENT that I have seen on this blog for a long time. at least I can at times hold my nose and empathise with the illogical comment posted by AC and CCC in defence of their party but surely you cannot be serious in your analogy above.

  7. There is something to be said of war; POST ALL THE DESTRUCTION, THERE IS REBUILDING.

    It is evident that here in my BIM we are still in that “economic war and conflict” for, on either side of the divide, neither of the parties that is normally charged with the rebuilding process have even started to think of how it is to be done.

    Here is a thing to ponder for you neophytes on both sides.

    It is evident that Fumble does not have, in and among his cabinet of incompetents, the mettle to carry us out of the storm.

    It is also evident that, barring a couple ministerial deaths with an attendant bye election, or a COUP (dont forget the by any means necessary crew) that we are going to suffer 60 months under this crew.

    That being the case, why is it that the so called “saviours of Barbados” Owen Seethru Arthur or Mia (she who would be queen/king, sorry i am confused by the sex thingy) are not prepared to list some economic suggestions to turn OUR economic plight around!!

    Now, and i want each of you to understand this, this is OUR economic plight, cause if things get too radical, ALL UH WE gine be in deep shi*e!!

    When I was much younger, we found an unexpended munition, a term for a bullet.

    Us idiots took the bullet, forced it in a crevice and jumped around, as monkeys do, throwing rocks at the back of the bullet, until it went off!!

    When that thing discharged it is only by the grace of GOD that one of eight idiots from *** was not killed by that ricochet !!

    That ricochet DID NOT CARE WHOSE CHILD WAS IN ITS WAY, IT WOULD HAVE WOUNDED/KILLED ANY ONE OF US IT WOULD HAVE HIT.

    And this is precisely the point of my ramblings

    We have a party in opposition that in seeking brownie points, while pretending to “RUB SHOULDERS WITH THE MAN IN SWAN STREET” is also devoid of any real ideas.

    And please dont tell me that they fear that the DLP tief dem ideas, doan gi’ dem credit for the idea and stan’ in power. All de BLP gots to do is get dem newspaper, DE Nation, get Sankey and Carl “de mo de monkey climb, de Moore yuh des see he tail” to publish dem solutions fuh all we Bajans to see, so all uh we see dat dem got alternatives.

    The DLP wont be returned to office in 2018 but wunna BLPites, of wunna is really de gurus of economic policy that wunna posturing to be, open unna mouf and talk

    We Bajans are dying out here and wunna really got to do something fuh de $17,000/month that wunna getting.

  8. PUDRYR;
    Your above post (5:41 am) sounds reasonable until one dissects it and see that the initial analysis is sound but the prescription for rebounding is arrant nonsense.

    Of course the DLP cannot bring us out of the pickle we’re in. That is evident with every passing day. So if that is so why would you think that ideas from the BLP to be implemented by the DLP will bear anything but poisoned fruit.

    It is evident that what has happened over the last 2 weeks or so is that the DLP cabinet came up with a set of numbers that the various Ministries or statutory bodies had to deliver forthwith, giving the PS’s and HOD’s the awesome responsibility of determining where the cuts would come from and also being the face that would be delivering the cuts and with absolutely no coordination between the said PS’s and HOD’s. The Ministers took themselves absolutely out of the equation in a Fumble type gambit that will never work.

    Everyday we are hearing of the DLP government having to backtrack on one more ill-thought out decision. The latest being the School Meals thingie. If they continue on this path it is evident we will get to a Haitian like designation sooner rather than later.

    The problem is that the DLP government is the epitome of poor Implementation. They can’t change. The style implicit in the implementation of the Budget measures screams Fumble at the top of its voice.

    Look, sensible and implementable Ideas could come from BUshtea’s BBE and this administration would botch them, with violence.

    In addition, what new ideas from the BLP what? Yuh tink there is scope for new ideas now after the DLP has run the country into the ground, even if the BLP really had such ideas.

    There was absolutely no strategy developed for implementing the basic standard ideas for our FX position that the Government had. If they were, do you think they would have allowed the Policemen’s allowances to be taken away at a time like this when perhaps additional allowances would have been given by any competent Government to policemen who would certainly have to deal with an escalating criminal and nouveau criminal segment of the populace and predictable breakdowns in the society at this time.

    This Government is bare boo and any of the putative ideas that Ms. Mottley purports to have will never come to fruition if given to that Government even if they were written in Braille for a Cabinet that cannot see farther than its noses to implement.

    Our only hope is removal of Freundle and Chris and relegation of the Fumble style of Government to the dustbin. He and the DLP can’t help us now. A coalition Government (No new elections) is our best hope with the parliamentarians, having seen the chaos that the DLP government has got us into, choosing a new PM with a parliamentary track record of sensible decisions and abilities to lead from among the current team.

    Implementation, as ever, is the problem. The DLP has shown that they are totally incapable of implementing anything properly.

    An Israeli doctor says : “Medicine in my country is so advanced that we can take a kidney out of one man, put it in another, and have him looking for work in six weeks.” !

    A British doctor says: “That is nothing, we can take a lung out of one person, put it in another, and have him looking for work in four weeks.

    A Canadian doctor says: “In my country, medicine is so advanced that we can take half a heart out of one person, put it in another, and have them both looking for work in two weeks.”

    A Bajan doctor: not to be outdone, says: “You guys are way behind, We just took a man with no brain – made him Prime minister, and now the whole country is looking for work.

    Well said!
    But a coalition government will not be realized when so many big egos are in the mix to the detriment of the country. Donville Inniss would accede only if he is made PM as he fancies himself as the next one. You would witness first a de facto dictatorship like some banana republic similar to those previously found in Western and Central Africa and Central and South America.
    This country is about to tip over with unemployment rising to over 20% before year-end. Looks like Bim is following in Greece’s footsteps.

    The worst thing a MoF, in collusion with his Guv of CBB, is to “cook the books” of the nation.
    Numbers don’t tell lies, only words.

    LOL!!!

    Really. I din’ know u know how ta tell a joke.

  12. BU will harp on the point until blue, we can implement all the economic policies we can mustor to spur growth BUT if there is no confidence by the people who are expected to be the reservoir of innovation, creativity, high productivity etc, it means nothing.

    @Just Asking “I blame the DLP Government for what happened to that poor 18 year old girl today. ”

    Cuh dear Just Asking. No need to be so partisan. The young lady was more than likely suffering from underlying depression, post natal depression, boyfriend, or family trouble.

    My condolences to her young friend who is deeply traumatized. I hope that her family takes her to see a counsellor. My condolences to the baby who has lost its mother way to soon. And to the young lady’s parents, siblings, extended family, friends, school mates and neighbours.

    This is not Zoe’s joke. He just doesn’t have such a SOH. Maybe if it was a biblical joke like Jesus wept, Mary cried; Joseph broke down in tears of Joy knowing his adopted son is God.

    Prodigal Son is the one who put the joke on BU, although not claiming authorship.

  15. I am in total agreement with your post of 8:48 am but it ha to be obvious that the level of confidence that bajans have in this Government is trending rapidly towards zero.

    In such a situation, can they implement anything properly or is it likely that the slide will go into overdrive?

  16. Caswell Franklyn

    Here we have a situation where a candidate is mandated by law to stick to a budget while campaigning and both he and the PM could not manage their affairs to stick to the budget, to the point where they both have to lie on their returns. And now you expect that these two would be able to manage the Economy. Get real!

  17. @ David

    Confidence in, and resilience of a people bring to mind the physics of an object particularly “its centre of gravity”

    In the former, one places one’s trust in something which is outside of self in the latter one is firmly resolute in one’s own capacity and while i will accept that no man is an island and what is happening in the economy around you, WILL affect you, I put it to you that true innovation, productivity and creativity will not be stymied by these externalities.

    In fact, if the ole man’s memory is working “necessity is the mother of invention”.

    There are many cliches about hard times bringing out the best in people “when the going get tough, the tough get going” and all the rest of inspiring gibber but i suggest that while we are in the middle of an economic malaise, we have to understand that people and not sheeple will overcome this speed bump.

    Bajans are deeply concerned to say the least about the future of our country, we are more concerned now than in times past when the magician Houdini Seethru was in power and construction (incorrectly translated as a growing economy) was booming.

    The fact is that sepulchres, irrespective of all the new paint on their external wall, house rotting/rotted skeletons. That was the great illusion perpetrated by Seethru Houdini, one that would have fallen on its face as well, irrespective of “the confidence of the people”

    FDI, tourises, exports of products and services at the end of the day mean one thing, FOREX and if your imports in support of all these vaunted Four Seasons abortions, EXCEED YOUR EXPORTS, your country will die, it might take longer to die, but die it will.

    England die not enter the WW out of any altruistic care for Europeans, it did so because, as an island, it had 6 weeks of food BEFORE ITS PEOPLE STARVED

    Take one step back from this debate and see if any one of these three posturers, Seethru, Fumble or Mia, has submitted, or can submit a sound feasible plan to support what boils down to a primary requirement of “EXPORT more product than you IMPORT and have a positive balance sheet and thereby ensure your country does not implode”.

    I dont have to be a Mascoll or a Darcy Boyce to understand that.

    The alternative governments of piranha that we elect every 5 years have eaten the cow that gives us milk.

    Its Rommell Marshalls’ Seethru’s Pornville’s Lashleys’ have made themselves rich at the expense of the people.

    And David[BU] we continue to vote for them every 60 months!! and then arrive at this “no confidence by the people who are expected to be the reservoir of innovation …..”

    How can we elect jackasses and then expect them to sing like nightengales?

    This is what Bushie calls brass bowl logic.
    REMOVE THEM AND PUT WHO? …..TO DO WHAT?

    …as Piece has so eloquently said, only a brass bowl would have such a hope when THERE ARE NO COHERENT ALTERNATIVES coming from any alternative group that are more sensible than PDC’s

    HOPE SHIITE!!
    Our only hope is that Bushie is right about BBE…..
    ….which of course he is…. :)

  19. @ Check It Out,

    Dont get me wrong.

    I am not saying that this belligerent DLP would, if the BLP were to give any remedies, incorporate them.

    I am saying that EVEN IN THIS STATE THAT WE ARE IN, there is a noticeable lack of any suggestions of worth!!

    Which brings me back to the thrust of my initial submission at 5.14 am, “Cannon to right of them, cannon to left of them, cannon in front of them, volley’d and thunder’d; on either side of the divide we have a cabinet, and a cabinet in waiting, of empty vessels

    Any official announcement on any correction to the solid waste municipal tax?

    Like most black businesses once the originator dies the business dies.Barrow dead and the DLP dead with him.All the freeness now going thru the eddoes so the DLP done with.Sandy,Thompson and Stuart,all of the fatted calf mentality,never understood what constitutes good governance.They are today people.’Eat now ’cause ya ‘en know wuh tomorrow gine bring’is their mantra.

  24. Hamilton Hill

    29 -0 -1 . after dat bold pronouncement why bother wid he? Hey I just asking.

  25. PUDRYR;

    OK. My point is that the BLP is unlikely to be able to come up with a magic bullet solution that they or the DLP can implement and turn our situation around in any short time frame. Our situation is dire. The Horse has already bolted the stable. The Die is cast. The BU pundits have already made practically every suggestion for improving and even transforming the economy. The Government merely has to take some of these suggestions on board, along with others which their technicians have made, choose the best ones, AND IMPLEMENT THEM PROPERLY. The Government has shown itself incapable of doing this. The presently constituted BLP may be unable to do so also but at least they have a track record of LEADERSHIP.

    Despite the unwonted hatchet job that has been done on OSA, he at least had ideas, he at least led from in front, he at least took unpalatable decisions and stuck with them, he at least was a planner, he at least was an indefatigable worker. I am betting that he would be able to, at least incrementally, get us closer to a desired position in 4 or 5 years time than the present lot. This Government has shown us in a pellucidly clear fashion that they can’t lead. Why should we ignore our senses in that regard? Because we love the DLP leadership more than ourselves?

    For them to lead us at this time is consigning us, with our hands firmly tied behind our backs, to Bushtea’s BBE when He comes calling with his lightning bolts, chariots of fire and other WMDs.

    If one has any familiarity with the progression of such situations in the other Islands which have had to combat them in the past, we are already following the prescriptions of the IMF and World Bank but doing so in a manner which will cause them to question if we are capable of getting out, even with their “FX help”. Result: stricter conditionalities when they officially come in and set up shop. Result; More pain; no gain; Further pain.

    What has to be done now is actually managing chaos since we are actually practically at rock bottom right now and proper planning and strategizing will do that. My hope is that something will soon happen to trigger the awakening in one or two members of the Government that their beloved DLP has ruined Barbados and that they weigh the situation and do the patriotic thing to ensure that a coalition government results. I think that there are enough sensible persons between the DLP and BLP parliamentarians to at least provide some more confidence in the people that their affairs would then be more properly managed than with Freundel and Chris Sinckler at the helm.

    Bushtea; I note your hope for the coming of the BBE and presumably of the Annunaki as well to sort out our problems. That, to the uninitiated is a global doomsday scenario. Show me how that is less brass bowlish than my suggestion above. Both of them are pie in the sky but at least mine is more firmly rooted in reality, even though one foreign to Barbados at this time.

    I repeat. The current situation is that Barbados has already gone through the eddoes. The ultimate choice (if an occasion permits it) is whether we should stay with Fumble to lead us further and more painfully through those eddoes or grasp any opportunity to remove him and Chris and hopefully be better led along the painful path through that eddo patch that now appears to stretch endlessly to the horizon.

  26. The following IS* how sick, perverted and evil the ‘homosexual’ agenda is, supported by ‘Judges’ in a court of law, blatantly and unjustly removing FREEDOM of conscience from Christians, and IMPOSING on them and evil purpose to support homosexualism!

    Friday, August 30, 2013

    Matt 24 watch, 218: The other shoe drops in New Mexico, USA as a panel of judges tells a Christian photographer: your conscience or your livelihood . . .

    It is a classic of law, that if a stick-up man points a gun to your head and tells you, your money or your life, he is in fact threatening both.

    Just so, we must now clearly understand that:
    He who would rob me of my livelihood . . .
    threatens my life;
    He who would rob me of my conscience . . .
    threatens my soul:
    He who would rob me of my children . . .
    threatens my posterity.

    This is blatant in the case we looked at yesterday, with Asia Bibi of Pakistan, who sits in a gaol cell that is threatening her health. For, she has been dragged away from her family and put there by an unjust judge who has sentenced her to death on a false charge of blasphemy. A false charge that was brought against her by a rampaging mob that — acting through a local cleric they dragged Asia to (while beating her) — had demanded that she convert to Islam (in violation of her conscience) or face such injustice under a false charge of blasphemy brought under a law that is itself unjust.

    That is part of why I told her story yesterday, and it is why I then asked all people of decent conscience to pause and sign a petition for her release, then see if the authorities in our own region would be willing to act in the name of decency, justice and principle with an innocent woman’s life so obviously at stake.

    However, we face very similar challenges today, much closer to home — threats linked to the radical agendas of the sexual revolution that (as we looked at a few days past) Gabrielle Kuby so solemnly warned us against. (The difference in our own civilisation is that things are a tad more subtle.)

    Q: What am I getting at?

    A: The manipulation of public opinion and eduction, leading to abuse of human rights law to rob Christians of livelihood, and threaten conscience by unjust judgements under false colours of law.

    Courtesy Christianity Today, this development in a New Mexico “civil rights” case is an apt case in point:

    Elaine and Jon Huguenin of Elane Photography
    (HT: Women of Grace)

    In a closely watched case on gay rights, religious freedom, artistic freedom, the speech rights of businesses, and a host of other legal hot button issues, the New Mexico Supreme Court today
    In a closely watched case on gay rights, religious freedom, artistic freedom, the speech rights of businesses, and a host of other legal hot button issues, the New Mexico Supreme Court today

    “When Elane Photography refused to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony, it violated the [New Mexico Human Rights Act, or NMHRA] in the same way as if it had refused to photograph a wedding between people of different races,” the court said in a unanimous verdict.

    The court rejected each of photographer’s Elaine Huguenin’s arguments, particularly one in which Huguenin had argued that her refusal did not discriminate against same-sex customers. Huguenin had argued that she would happily photograph gay customers, but not in a context that seemed to endorse same-sex marriage. Likewise, she said, she wouldn’t shoot heterosexuals in a context that endorsed same-sex marriage. [More details courtesy ADF, here.]
    As the CT article continues:

    . . . it is Justice Richard Bosson’s concurring opinion, not the majority opinion, that is already getting the most attention. The Huguenins, he wrote “now are compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives. Though the rule of law requires it, the result is sobering. It will no doubt leave a tangible mark on the Huguenins and others of similar views.”
    All of this is an outrage.

    The solution to this is very simple, and should have been done before injustice like this was enshrined under false colours of “law” and “rights”: consider the asymmetry in impact of the two alternate decisions before the court, in light of impact on right to livelihood and right to conscience.

    That is, if photographer A, for reasons of principled conscience objects to taking photographs in a given situation — say, refuses to photograph nudity (and there are nude weddings and there is such a thing as nude photography or even pornography that has been made acceptable under law. . . ) or any other morally questionable event E — the person seeking a photographer, X, could easily go elsewhere, to photographer B who would be happy to get the additional business. In short, A is doing no significant material harm to X by giving up the opportunity to have X as a customer for event E, as an alternative is readily available.

    Plainly, A is not sitting on the only source of food or water for miles around in the middle of a desert and is not acting in defiance of obvious and legitimate universal human needs.

    A is simply saying, that under circumstances E, on principle, I am willing to forgo money as I refuse to endorse E.

    That is, A is expressing principled freedom of conscience and of conscience-guided speech, at cost to themselves of business foregone.

    In this case, X — in the teeth of easily available alternatives — is obviously saying: I demand that you endorse E, and will resort to force to make you violate conscience, or go out of business or face the force of the state acting under colours of law.

    This action of X is blatantly wrong.

    Do I dare call it by name?

    Yes: CENSORSHIP.
