BLP Red Alert

The political temperature in the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) neck of the woods is starting to rise as it identifies candidates to run in the next general elections constitutionally due in 2018. It is not unusual for political parties to engage in tussles while negotiating the candidate selection process. Who can forget the dogfight that took place to replace then Henry Ford in Christ Church West and of recent the Maria Agard catfight that has seen the return of former representative William Duguid.

In the news recently veteran BLP candidate David Gill was defeated by rookie Marsha Caddle in St. Michael South Central. The result forced him to admit ”I done wid Mia”. In St. James South new comer Ronnie Yearwood appears to be the Mia anointed at the expense of BLP foot soldier Sandra Husbands. And there is St. Michael North West…

Clearly there is a BLP purge on the way and who can blame Mia? Why would she want Arthur’s disciples at her back?

The downside to the party system is that the democratic ideals to which its members aspire are often compromised in the interest of the leader of the party. Across the globe the party system has been failing. There is no better example than in the United States where the presidential race has been reduced to a reality show staring the greatest of them all Donald Trump and co star Hillary Clinton. The party system is located at the foundation of our democracy. It is scary to observe how those with influence are able to easily influence many who offer to serve.

The BU household is of the view the best representative of a constituency should be a person with an enviable track record of public service. And it should be considered an asset if said person was born and or raised in the constituency they have offered to represent.  How do we ring-fence the representative from those who are able to command limitless resources. Denis Lowe and  billionaire Peter Allard comes to mind.

An example of influence is the ease with which political aspirants have been able to secure contracts to propagate their agenda in the print and broadcast media.

    HERE ARE MY NOTES FROM A SERMON ON 2 SAMUEL 9 ON ADOPTION
    • v 11 he shall eat at my table, as one of the king’s sons.
    • In this verse it was promised that Mephiboseth would eat at the kings table as one of the kings son’s.
    • Note he is there not as a visitor, but as one of the kings son’s. There is a great change in his STATUS.
    • This verse reminds us of the doctrine of THE ADOPTION OF SONS, and the fact that we have been declared in Romans 8:18 as joint heirs of Christ. Again not because of our own merit, but because the exalted Christ has exalted us to this position.

    • The word adoption in the New Testament is translated from the Greek word (huiothesia) which means “the placing of an adult son” and refers to the formal act of recognizing the maturity of an adult son.
    • The word is found in five New Testament passages: Rom. 8:15,23: 9:4; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5.

    The believer is also called (teknon), a child which is growing up but which is still under parental care. Hence John 1:12, “…to them gave He power to become the sons (teknoi) of God.”—should strictly be children.
    • But a Christian is also in union with Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is called (huios), “an adult son”. So, in union with Him, we are said to be adult sons also, although we may be babies (brephos) or (teknon) by experience.

    To the people living in the predominantly Greek and Roman culture of the 1st Century A.D., the word (huiothesia) would bring to mind the ceremony of toga virilis, in which a 14-year-old boy went through an investiture ceremony with the adult male members of his family. At this ceremony, speeches of challenge to the youth would be made, and offerings would be made to the gods. Then, the boy would stand in the center of the group and take off the child’s garment that he wore. A new adult man’s robe, or toga, would be placed on him. This was the toga virilis, the “robe of a man”.

    At this time, the 14-year-old was given adult privileges and responsibilities. He could conduct business in his own name, could buy and sell property, could marry, could vote in the Assembly, and in many other ways could carry on as an adult citizen. Of course, he was not mature enough or wise enough to exercise all of the privileges he had; and he was not experiences enough to live up to all of the responsibilities. But the seriousness of his position as a citizen was impressed on him; and if he was intelligent and hard working, he would grow up to be an adult having integrity and character.
    • Application: The spiritual use of the word “adoption” signifies the placing of a newborn child, in the spiritual sense, into the position of privilege and responsibility attached to an adult son.
    • The question arises as to why a naturally born child needs to be adopted. Are we not, after all, “born again”?
    • It is here that the true meaning of “adoption” comes in; because in the New Testament, “adoption” refers to a positional advance. The new believer is advanced positionally to his majority, even though at the time of salvation he is spiritually immature, a “babe in Christ”.

    Because spiritual adoption takes place at the moment of salvation, there is really no period of childhood experience recognized for believers. The Christian has been placed into the privilege, liberty, and duty of a full-grown adult.
    • Spiritual adoption imposes the same way of life on all children of God. This requirement is reasonable because the Christian life is to be lived in the sustaining and upholding power of the Holy Spirit.
    • And this provision is available as much for one person as for another.
    • Therefore, the word “adoption” means that from the very first of our Christian lives we have full provision, the freedom to have a relationship with God on an adult basis, the freedom to serve Him.
    • Full-time Christian service is nothing more than the freedom to have a relationship with God.

    There is also a future aspect to “adoption”, that of our ultimate placing as adults in eternity, as shown in Romans 8:23.
    • There we will have the resurrection body, we will see Christ face to face, and we will have no Sin Nature or human good. So we will be able to function perfectly in Christ, as adults in maturity.

    Wuh boss,
    Bushie would find time to listen to that message -given the notes presented…
    Amazing how you are able to discern some aspects of the message and yet allow yourself to be choked by the brainwashing that has dominated the established churches over the centuries….
    It would be most interesting to hear how you managed to reconcile ” THE ADOPTION OF SONS, and the fact that we have been declared in Romans 8:18 as joint heirs of Christ…” with your precious doctrine of the Trinity…. where Christ is one third of some fictitious godhead. Where then would ‘joint heirs’ fit…?

    re t would be most interesting to hear how you managed to reconcile ” THE ADOPTION OF SONS, and the fact that we have been declared in Romans 8:18 as joint heirs of Christ…”

    THE ADOPTION OF SONS, AND BEING PLACED AS JOINT HEIRS ARE THE SAME
    ONLY PAUL TAUGHT ON THE ADOPTION OF SONS Rom. 8:15,23: 9:4; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5.

    TO BE PLACED AS A JOINT HEIR IS THE SAME A TO BE PLACED OR ADOPTED AS A SON

    HOW DOES BEING ADOPTED AS A SON CONTRADICT THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY?

    Again the Goebellistas are trying to convince BU that their party is one of integrity, fairness and restrained power. The NCC workers, the court rulings in 8 wrongful dismissal suits, Akanni McDowall etc prove otherwise (we are still waiting to hear how privately owned garbage trucks were in the port long before any announcement of the quasi-privatisation of garbage collection). But what takes the whole hog, is the continued reference to Owen Arthur by persons who called him a dictator a few years back. One day coming soon the people will wake up. #carryonwidyuhbullshit

    You have to prove that Abed being overlooked was one or the same as Agard, Agard had won her seat , Abed gave a poor showing in the election and therfore was not ,given another consideration. Agard closed door dismissal proving that she is capable of winning her seat was a fully loaded jaw dropping exhibition of megalomania
    Btw nothing takes the whole hog but the truth and those who help fed and nutured the piglet until it became a hog

    Bushie did not ‘GET RICH’

    Bushie cast his bread upon the waters …and it returns to him MANY TIMES OVER.

    Do you yet get the hint as to the nature of Bushie’s wealth?
    In simple terms, Psalms 1: 1-3 explains it ….
    Blessed is the man who walketh not in the council of the ungodly..

    Well like de ole man has been saying.

    “Not One Effing Seat for de DLP”

    I still tink dat she too supercilious and all caught up in she empty headed self.

    I does judge people by whu dem do and she ent do diddly squat for the Small Business Association for all de years dat she been at de SBA

    She and de nex one Lynette

    Anyways….

    She can run her campaign and leverage this sort of theme (unofficially of course)

    Some fliers, some videos, add in some Condemned Chicken Wings Whulossss….

    I could see de hypothetical headlines now

    “Chick Scandal Again!!

    “What is the problem with Pornville and “chickens”?”

    “Pornville is no longer trying to get the naked ladies in de “bake fowl” position”

    It is purported that he has abandoned these warm chickens and their wonderful breasts (TO WITH SANDRA GOT SOME THAT MIGHT INTEREST HIM) and has now become involved in some condemned breasts”

    “One Bhanna is purported to be assisting the Police”

    “Another equally lost, or is that chicken brained DLP fellow, by the name of James-I-Need-to-Make-A-Call is looking into the breasts.

    Nooooo not Sandra’s breasts, the contaminated breasts.

    Sandra would be well advised not to have James-I-Need-to-Make-A-Call looking into her breasts with his bad smelling breath.

    James-I-Need-to-Make-A-Call has alot of experience in looking into illegal food import licenses AND NEVER FINDING OUT WHO IS ILLEGALLY IMPORTING THINGS.

    GP; re your 1:37 post which I only just caught a glimpse of.

    Bushtea is absolutely right!

    I think that Bushtea was not talking about point mutations but about the ability of plants to exhibit a modification of their “phenotype” when presented with various environmental triggers based on genotypes that allow for such inbuilt modification and revert to a different phenotype when the trigger is removed. This a basic, easily observable, characteristic of plant development and physiology. Similar modifications in animals is related to genotypic changes, often through mutations. Such changes do not require mutations in plants.

    @ The Honourable Blogmaster

    Not everyone who will visit the BU site, to read a specific blog, will know that there is a Poster War.

    I only recently starting posting some fliers on (a) the “substantive blog” and (b) then in the poster war section, IF, AND ONLY IF, there is a use? for a dual post.

    Some items will only go into the Poster Wars Section, others only in the specific article section and a few get 2 posts, if only to get the visuals out there.

    I sometimes add some narrative to a flier since I do want the target specifically the BLP reviewers, to get a glimmer of understanding of what is the rationale behind the flier and how it can be used to ensure “Not One Effing Seat”

    If people are on the ground like de ole man they will realise what the general sentiment is, and how spot on that “NOT ONE EFFING SEAT IS GOING TO BE.”

    But since mine is a sad realization that the BLP is no different than the DLP, in terms of their comprehension skills, as well as their ME-ISM objectives, I do a short write ups to assist their dimness.

    I do not fool myself, and neither should you or any of us, that the Barbados Labour Party will miraculously acquire the skills to mount a campaign that will win.

    Additionally let us not fool ourselves that the millions of dollars that are in the treasure trove of the DLP are not there to spend READ BRIBE, the many ingrunt sheeple on their way to a third term.

    There is much more than this Stoopid Campaign to come that they CANNOT STOP Blogmaster BUT THE THING that you and all of them must realise is that, as i said with Trump, his mouth was going to make him loose the election.

    IF WE CONTINUE TO PLAY WITH OUR BROADCASTING of the message, them ingrunt bajans out there, the more than 125,000 who cannot do all any “sophisticated” reasoning, going get tied up by the $$, and going vote based on a Grantley.

    My objective is to so emote a specific response that even if the grantleys are in their pocket, when they arrive at that ballot box, ALL they will remember is the face of the “enemy” and will vote the DLP out.

    Just testing if this posts David

    Alot of us beleive that Mia Amor Mottley is stupid.

    Let de ole man explain that

    “Our” model is one where the Ministerial majority, as is seemingly supported by Fumble and his band of motley fools, is where the seat of power lies.

    We are ensuingly led to believe that this posturing with the MPs and the cuntstituency seats is the be it all and end it all for the Mottley Strategy.

    WRONG ANSWER!!!

    Yes the majority will give mottley the Prime Ministerial position that she seeks but that is not the end game

    It is the interstitial and interstatial matrices that matrices that she will weave, her web of critical interrelationships that the “lock down” will come.

    People like Sandra Husbands and other fleas will be the MP and may even become a minister but it is people like Dr. Ronnie Yearwood and Rayside who will be appointed to the institutions that will shape a new Barbados.

    My dearest Suzanne encourages me daily that this is the sort of change that Barbados needs, the activation of the “bright ones” and their placement in positions of change that will rebrand Barbados.

    De Ole Man hopes so cause if we are fearful of Fumbles the sleeping giant and his desire to cling onto power irrespective of the cost, then, when Mottley gets to sleep in Llaro Court I will not be here but the ole man predicteth that there will be no equal “amor” i.e. love for that seat AT ANY COST.
