Poster Offensive Launched, #bajanswantchange

#bajanswantchange

#bajanswantchange

Th historically passive Bajan continues to explore non violent tactics to express disapproval to the myriad of concerns prevailing our once small proud country. With the emergence of technology and along with it the exponential growth of social media, two BU regulars have come up with the idea to create posters to graphically detail our concerns and to use social media as a vehicle to communicate those concerns.

Here are a few posters which have been created so far by Sunshine Sunny Shine and pieceuhderockyeahright and one other. BU posted a couple to Twitter under the hashtag #bajanswantchange. All creative Barbadians are encouraged to create posters and post to social media platforms using the hashtag #bajanswantchange or any other which resonates with the theme. What should be the motivation? A functional democracy calls for all citizens to participate 24/7. Once every five years is disengagement by any definition.

    I know that you have been busy

    Certainly administering this site with the Bowmans and the Donkeys is a full time job. heheheheheh

    In addition to handling the legal matters per the defamation of character by some of these inconsiderate posters hidden by the IP veil heheheheheheheh

    Patience worketh Character.

    A friend of mine was commenting on my IMGUR posts and the view counts

    His was an observation that your site does do a sync with imgur since Colonel Buggy’s i.imgur posts do update.

    The links in my posts are the same so he has said that the plugin you are using would be the same for all users.

    He remarked that the Image that “advises voters what to do during General Elections” the one with its almost 6,000 views, shows that the i.imgur link/sync works for that one only

    I guess it seems to be a localized per image issue

    What do you think?

    (Credit Nation News) : forgive de ole man commingling with the enemy Honourable Blogmaster in fact the ole man hath been to Barbados Today as well

    “Having received information that Prime Minister Freundel Stuart was seen on the site of the controversial Hyatt Hotel on Bay Street in Barbados the Nation News Editor dispatched their photographer to the “Herr Hitler/Himler/Goerring & Hess Meeting

    Contrary to reporting in 1st World Countries as the journalist proceeded onto the site, he was told by the Prime Minister himself that it was a private meeting and his presence there amounted to disrespect

    Even though the Prime Minister’s private meeting was taking place in broad daylight in the heart of the capital city in the full glare of every passing individual.

    The journalist apologised to Mr Stuart and returned to the clearly marked Nation vehicle.

    Members of the 4th Estate are sure that the Prime Minister also understands – the well established legal principle that a public individual e.g. a President (for Life) cannot expect privacy when he or she is in public

    One of the news team, a Ms Smith was still standing on the sidewalk as the party exited the compound of Bethel Methodist Church, when one member of the party walked over to her and without saying a word, raised his hand and pushed her away.

    Not knowing who the individual was, but having captured him in still photos and video, she went to Central Police Station and made an official criminal complaint.

    There she was told the person in the photograph was a member of the police’s Special Branch, the division charged with special national security duties e.g. protection of the Prime Minister.”

    Imagine this nuh!! In Barbados.

    Just for taking pictures of Prime Ministers in this Banana Republics is a risk to your health

    When I saw that picture on Barbados Today and the nation News and I looked at the close ups of the PM and the parties with him and I read the newspaper narrative of both the articles – The Hyatt Visit – as well as the Remarks from the Nation Editor three things hit me

    A.The first was the glowering look that was accorded the news team that was following this visit.

    It was not like it was being done in the open but like it was being done in the dead of night AND those looks were looks of “how de ef dem get to hear bout this?”

    “Who tell them?’

    It is in the face of the person to the left moreso than Cummins’ face, what is there is something which is a reflection of either something Fumbles said that cause them both to turn to the cameras.

    But it is moreso in the face of the tango to the left the one with the shades perched on his head.

    While I was not there I would hazzard that he was the one who pushed the reporter.

    B.The best defence is offence. for the stupid PM to have aired his visit with fanfare and cameras and all of the above would have been a much better strategy, in fact that would have been superb chess moves.

    Much like the salt that Putin is rubbing in the faces of US Intelligence with his press conference in which he is commenting about the impact of his destroyer and flotilla in the Middle East.

    But Fumbles is not Putin and this is why he will loose every effing seat.

    C.It is obvious that they need the investment of the foreign monies for the Hyatt since that will assist in reducing the amount of $$ the Central Bank is printing to prop up the running of government.

    But as a few people here have pointed out, all the Approval that the Hyatt gets noyone is going to invest in that building UNDER THE MANAGEMENT OF THE DEMONIC LYING PARTY!!

    People have no confidence in them and they fear the looming shadow of devaluation.

    So they are going to wait until all of the EFFERS are gone and even then Mottley is going to have a rough time restarting the economic engine

    The Nation is driven by advertising $$.

    If you monitor their submissions on TCL Arawak Mark Maloney, Bark at Me Man etc you will note that management of that entity, which Roy Morris is not, will not bite the hand that feeds it.

    It will never go against any administration because it derives an income from GIS articles and other Court Related items like probate etc.

    We are too hard on fellows like Roy Morris who have/has (fellows have, Roy Morris has) to tow the line else those same financial “life lines” get cut and, when you out there in this digital advertising ocean, without government support, of these private sector interests to take out ads, you going drown.

    On Another blog you observed that a “single thrust” focused solely on Bringing Down the DLP Demonic Lying Party may best be tempered by other observations and edifications.

    Do not think that the ole man does not notice other men and women fighting in the vanguard.

    My challenge is that they fight and that their skirmishes, albeit successful warfare, go unseen and unheard as in that thing the ole man often repeats about the tree falling in the woods unheard by human ear…

    In the last 22 hours your “Barbados has One Activist” Stoopid Cartoon poster got over 200 views.

    Dont mind the BU update with 2 views, BU has a “counter glitch” and the Blogmaster is looking into it

    Like I said previously you are to be commended on your “national activism” thus far.

    I still am keen to see you start to address the issue of the Band of Crooked Brothers read Bar Association Members who take it as a rite of passage to rob their clients and to sell out their matters to the lawyers of defendants in legal matters.

    De Ole Man is wondering if I have inadvertently offended one of the BU household.

    Please let the ole man know cause there are things that I dont have to do NO MORE (that should be “any” but I just did not feel like correcting it)

    I, like many others, am the first to recognize that THIS IS YOUR SITE but I am at a lost as to why a poster count regarding David Commissiong’s post, OR ANY OF DE OLE MAN’s POST, would be experiencing this count limitation.

    Look at the picture below and you will note that it has a RED circle around the number count and that was applied 3 minutes after uploading the 7.56 am correct count ON THE SAME IMAGE!

    Like I said I am making an observation “about an anomaly”, it is the “anomalies” that have saved the old man’s life in the past.

    But I have also said “IT BE YOUR TING” and I do also realize that if a poster is acting outside of the tacit terms of engagement well you are entitled to do what you wish…

    “Despite this possibly helpful rule, some people have survived 8 to 10 days without water. Again, leave such shenanigans to the truly desperate.”

    “As 65 percent of the human body, water is essential to people.”

    “Water flows through the blood, carrying oxygen and nutrients to cells and flushing wastes out of our bodies. It cushions our joints and soft tissues. Without water as a routine part of our intake, we cannot digest or absorb food.” (Credit Life Science.com)

    Dem ent leaving up nothing about themselves

    Nothing!!

    Notice dat every time dem make a speech pun TV, the few that DO SPEAK, every word that they say is either from off a piece of paper or they are extremely careful what they say.

    Is it because they are getting prompted by their political strategist dat dem videos going get used gainst them?

    Or is it that they got wind that the BLP have started creating videos that are overlaying what they are saying?

    Have they heard that the BLP have started to create a series of “Stoopid Videos” for each one of them? heheheheheheheheh

    Whu it mek sense, doesn’t it?

    How best to show up the clowns by using videos that show them talking?

    Show posters with their lack of accomplishments and then mek laughing sport at the jokers?

    De ole man want to mek a video of the Walk of Shame that they have in front of the DLP Headquarters

    That Ingrunt Blue and yellow “Hop Scotch” pattern thing that is all over the front of their building.

    “Bingo with BIMBOS!!”

    “Hop Scotch with Stupid COC#S”

    “Playing Scrabble with those who BABBLE”

    or

    “Play our Ludo Board with the DLP Whores”

    And just to make the Stupid Walk a la Hollywood even more stupid here is the write up

    “The special space at the DLP’s George Street, St Michael headquarters (special as in more suited for the Mental Horspital Green Gates Hotel) was unveiled (more like revealed as in to reveal that there are more madmens out than in) by former deputy Prime Minister Sir Philip Greaves this afternoon, and will be at the centre of the Talk 50 Competition in the Errol Barrow Gallery at the end of November” (assuredly the centre of the talk read “are theses effers for real? A draughts board for independence?”

    “It will see primary school children vying for a $500 prize, which will be awarded to the child who correctly recites, in the shortest time, the 50 achievements highlighted in the Independence Walk.

    Such is possible.

    Create item, save item, log in, post item, to (a) community or (b) to local community, copy link, paste link to BU (a) single entry or (b) dual entry, adjust narrative based on relevance.

    I guess that you must be right about the counter anomaly being of IMGUR genesis since I have not changed that procedure in six months.

    That is what OCD does TheGazer for some of us, it makes you question to simplest of things that are out of sync.

    (iii) Been watching the threads and blogs and looking at the constancy and predisposition that we bajans have related to things foreign and to waste time commenting on what we cant change
    (iv) will watch to see when that focus comes back to things Barbadiense but am already aware that they never will since even the work back presumes that they once were here.

    I am actually disengaging Gazer.

    Bajans are not a serious people at all.

    We are more interested in Trump and every one else in the world and a simple conversation as to how we ensure that Mugabe Mottley’s crew does not bring more of the same, is an exercise in futility.

    So we have these articles about where i stand is where i sit and inance topics that all lead to Donald Trump or the proselytes preaching of the wisdom of a DLP government again.

    So sometimes it is best to just sit back and watch the sameness of it all.
