For the Claim of INDEPENDENCE 1966

Submitted by nineofnine

barbados-primeministersA people stood in trance as one flag is lowered and another (THE NATIONAL SYMBOL) was raised while standing at attention, listening to the tones of a new anthem and visioning that their new self-governing nation will move to provide new opportunities, render freedoms, rise standards, facilitate the needy, and set a better future for our children and our children’s children.

Indeed. PILLARS of a new CONSTITUTION set, STATUES/ACTS/LAWS/REGULATION/CODES to dictate, Chambers to guide and direct. Political parties form and Constituencies select their representatives that move into a general election filling the seats of the Chambers. The Government is formed as implementer by CONSENSUS and REFERENDUM of that which will serve for the betterment of its people.

This is the MANDATE and so it is.

OVERSIGHT:
2016
50 years later, How are we standing?

Media headlines are telling the tales, the peoples’ issues are many, the landscape deteriorating/abandoned.
WHY?
Why is their silence in the air?

How did we get to a place:-

where taxes are burdensome dead weights while deficits remain.
where there is massive borrowing and no real tangible evidence is noticeable.
where exploiters of cheap labour are pedestaled while destroying the roll of Workers Unions.
where Privatization is the better option to Governance, making public outcries.
where tourism is exalted and Agriculture is debased.
where consumption leads to communicable diseases.
where health is threatened by garbage, lack of adequate water, insufficient/lack of sustainable medicines and paraphernalia.
where Pharmacies cry out for monies owed yet still providing their services.
where ghost structures stand tall while many seek housing.
how did we get to a place:-
where in 2016 minimum wage does not contribute to National Development while masses are being exploited of energy and unthinkable Labour Laws rule and regulations of employers under false and fictitious contractual “agreements”.
where the Judicial System 360s to white collar crime and Mr.Joe Broke spends time for a tin of Sardines.
where Commercial fraud and injury is openly displayed with no serious pursuit of perpetrators.
where the statue of the englishman remains pinacled while our Icons, Kings and Queens are poorly received.
where the commence chambers operates in stealth while redundancies fail to establish an expanded business sector.
where the MANDATE for policing by an ACT OF LAW still exists in a “PLANTOCRATIC” ideology
while members struggle with brothers and sisters and real crime prove evasive.
where the more I look the more I see.

WHY?…the explanation and remedy.

Uncontrolled by Governments, TIMELINES are changing. The Systems of the 3D matrix are quickly
collapsing and morphing into a new timeline of 5D Dynamics where ultimate benefit to humanity… prospers.
The plan…Humanity first, the environment second and the implementation of new technologies follow.
As a Nation subjected to this revolutionary/evolutionary Divine protocol, now is the time to
take stock of and release/abandon/remove that which does not work in the interest of the collective.
Reverse mind sets, repeal the failing and replace the workable, create and invent from necessity.
BE AWARE OF MANIPULATION, SUBTLE SUGGESTIONS, and exercise DISCERNMENT.

FOR HUMANITY, allow for the…

  1. Release of tied hands by “Letters of intent to withdraw” from Treaties, MOUs, Protocols and contracts.
  2. Abandonment of those Acts that speak to prejudices/exemptions of rule. ACTS, Laws etc, that are
    binding/restricting real development and progress. Abandon paper not people.
  3. Recall of representatives that are non-functioning by their Constituencies via an establish a protocol, with Government facilitating it by law. The Constituency’s’ determination supersedes that of Government.
  4. Disclosure, limitation and transparency of Political and Private financial contributions.
  5. Reversal of decisions made that adversely affects proven systems for achieving academic and other successes.
  6. Repeal Acts and Laws that are non-inclusive of any sector or establishment.
  7. Replace ancient landmarks.
  8. Create the environment to succeed, NOT LIMITED, NOT PARTIAL, NOT POLITICAL.
  9. Meaningful avenues for the provision to express visionary ideas and concepts.

Real Independence delivers. Collectively all prospers, it must be forefront of any manifesto as well as those
who sits in the chambers, anything less is non-functioning. I really have nothing to celebrate at this 50 for it seems that in a short time, all that we have proudly achieved has been compromised and contaminated by Deeds in Darkness that are now being exposed. Justice will be served.

ON REFLECTION, this confirms that the 3D matrix is in progress. What I do “celebrate” is the peoples’ fortitude in the present circumstances, the tenacity to demand better and calling a spade a spade. This new timeline and era will harness the expression of our real potential, that of SPIRIThuman, as it unfolds align with Truth, Light, Life and Love.

    EVAH SENCE – Reading Nation today about gov’t and IMF. Years I advised the gov’t to go to the IMF because they do not know what they are doing and they will make bad worse. Michael Howard advised going to the IMF and reminded people that Owen Arthur had again advised this recently in the strongest terms.We have now reached the stage where the gov’t has to pay creditors with gov’t bonds and electricity failed at hospital including the generator. Pints of blood became contaminated and had to be thrown away, meanwhile patients cannot get blood, and a woman told me that her relative died last week because she could not get a transfusion.

    Here is another prophecy, BC.

    Unless your economic recovery plan (ERP) involves financing from the IMF it will not see the light of day.

    Which ‘mad’ investor, private or institutional, would sink foreign money in Bim today given the quality of fiscal and financial management that took place over the last 8 years? Have you read the latest IMF report on Barbados’s economic performance and fiscal goal achievement against a persistent background of dwindling foreign reserves?

    Barbados needs loads of forex and it needs it badly. Within the next 3 to 6 months or crapaud smoke your pipe, BC.

    There are two major terms and conditions that stand between the door to an IMF funding bailout. One is negotiable for the time being. The other is non-negotiable and represents the sine qua non to economic stability and then recovery.

    Immediate divestment or else your ass is grass, Barbados!

    Why not start with the GAIA? That’s the easy one. That should put paid to the salary demands of those greedy workers, not so?

    So what’s the alternative to save the fast deteriorating patient on the economic recovery table?

    The same homegrown approaches which have not worked over the last 7 years?

    Have there been any visible “improvement in the economic or social welfare of the citizens”.

    Was the David Estwick Debt Restructuring plan taken on board when the patient was not in such a worse position?

    Any plan that does not involve the injection of millions of forex into the economy over the next 2 years is bound to fail.

    Does your home-made economic recovery plan (which will be published very soon like the promises of the MoF) include the borrowing of foreign money?

    The patient is gravely ill. Why not see the doctor of last resort for the patient banking needs?

    Why not sign the prescription for recovery as “IMF” instead of “RIP”?

    What Bim needs urgently by way of investment is not only consumers of forex but also generators Massy and ilk fall into that consuming forex category.

    Is your post re Sandra Husbands hers or your contribution? If it is hers, is that now BLP policy?
    In any case, the good professor’s support for IMF intervention needs clarity. What will the IMF policy of austerity (the so-called Washington Consensus), which has been rejected by every major economy, do for Barbados?
    Can’t a local editor invite the professor to elaborate on his idea? This is what editing is about, not just drawing a salary.
    It is tiring hearing Barbadian public intellectuals and academics expressing views not backed with any evidence.
    Austerity will make Barbadian economy – and society – much worse off and may lead to social breakdown. Already we have the so-called Regional Security people, in a land grab bid, claiming they should be involved in internal security. In fact the RSS should be disbanded, along with the Defence Force.

    So why not forget about straw men and games and present your economic recovery plan to the BU household- even if it is still at its early stage- for discussion and feedback? Then you can focus not on personalities but on the intellectual substance of the Marshall-like “Codringtonian” rescue Plan for Bim. Time is fast running out for the poor soul.

    Barbados has been to the IMF on two previous occasions. What’s wrong with a third?
    No one is prepared to lend Barbados foreign money unless it is under an IMF programme. Ask Dr. Warren Smith. Bajans are feeling the cost of austerity without the benefit of IMF funding to restructure and invigorate the economy to make it fit and competitive for the 21st century.

    There is great validity in your recommendation regarding the Defence Force as it is presently configured and with the latest technology available.

    you ask …So what’s the alternative to save the fast deteriorating patient on the economic recovery table?

    My response…

    Our situation is largely due to servicing debt with foreign exchange.

    Why is their such emphasis place on the accumulation of forex, when it is also greatly steeped in its flight to offshore accounts and loan repayments. Find closure here.
    All debt is linked/tangled in written CONTRACT. CONTRACTS that are written in illusion, fictional AND FRAUDULANT by nature and void of prepositional phrases OF the correct sentence structures of QUANTUM PARSE SYNTAX GRAMMER is ultimately declared NULL and VIOD. These type of contracts carries no REAL BINDING STATEMENTS and were designed to extort interest on fiat created money. In essence you save that which you are “committed to ” unless otherwise correctly structured.
    Abolish Income tax and use Value Added Tax (tariffed) to a ceiling percentage . Institute the circulation of money in the economy by dropping non productive taxes, increase disposable income to allow for consumerism.
    When VAT was introduce, the collection was staggering and amounted to greater yields than anticipated, therefore engage prudent strategies in tweeking the right mix that leads to a domino effect which enhances CIRCULATION, GROWTH and by extension yield greater forex earning possibilities.
    Strategize to draw forex earnings and remittances from the diaspora.
    Deal with unscrupulous Banking practices including the Central Bank which really is not owned by the Barbados government but by foreign interests.
    This list is in-exhaustible…. you too can add to it.

    “What Bim needs urgently by way of investment”…
    The brain of the Anunnaki was said to be superior, especially in DNA manipulation, seems somewhat that this feature should be absconding to Human directive.

    What worked: the re-investment of National Insurance Scheme funds so much so that the country became dependent on it to solve many of its issues.

    Urgently? well, I don’t believe in patch work, Any endeavor to fix this issue must be well planned out , on the short term, use what we have that makes forex. that is, the tourism plant.
    I on many an occasion put forward proposals to Government to facilitate ideas that would have been beneficial to certain industries. Here is a liked situation. one proposal was that of a Barbados jazz festival, was directed to BHA, then to Dept. Management Studies UWI to implement , well the proposal was NOT MOVED FORWARD but took running feet to St. Lucia to form St. Lucia Jazz Festival, another was a Documentary Film, a detail account of the life of Errol Barrow from conception to death, researched and scripted by historian Trevor Marshall.. the DLP did not see its value. another was the Calvacades and the month long Independence celebrations as well as a central entertainment pack in the vicinity of the port among many others…. back to your question

    A short term initiative to earn forex can be the promotion and production of a detailed well planned out holiday package targeting all USA schools and universities when they are out on recess THIS SUMMER. Put together Chartered flights, accommodation and planned activities for the stipulated period, enhance it with Iconic involvement and rooted bragging rights to some formal invitational event making it a memorial experience, This will also lay the groundwork for repeated business….. see the potential yet?

    A few saturdays ago I watched a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining film called “Errol Barrow, Freedom Fighter, made by Marcia Weekes, Barbadian film maker, that documented Mr Barrow’s life and the struggles for Independence.It was shown at the INNISTown Hall of the University of Toronto; well attended, and very well received.
    It is obvious that your assumptions were wrong. The idea was accepted and acted upon. Many of the contributors to BU, speak (write) from a position of ignorance (some; Well Well and Bushie think along those lines,with reference to my contributions), and this is an example. They make a suggestion and expect, it to be accepted and acted upon immediately.
    Barbados does not need to go to any IMF. What people have to do in live within their means. Instead of buying a BMW, buy a smaller car and thus require less foreign exchange to pay for it. If funds can be borrowed locally, then there is no need for forex to pay for the goods and services required.

    “If funds can be borrowed locally, then there is no need for forex to pay for the goods and services required.”

    Alvin, you were doing reasonably well in your argument until, at the very end, you stepped up a gear to enhance your claim to being one of BU’s biggest idiots and clearly deserving of the title “AC” the accredited clown prince.

    So what happens to the “funds borrowed locally”?

    If you go to any Bajan household you can bet that about 90% of its contents are comprised of imported goods and that does not include the large amount of imported processed food taking up 90 % of the supermarket shelves.
    Even the physical plant (house) itself is constructed from loads of imported materials.

    And the above situation does not even take into account the cost of imported services like American TV shows, imported oil to produce electricity, etc.

    Forex is the sine qua non of Barbados’s economic survival. And it has been from its very early colonisation. Why do you think sugar was called King? Because it only made Britain prosperous?

    “Earn Forex or Perish” ought to be the new national motto to replace what little pride and industry still remains.

    So Mr. AC the next time you write make sure you are engaging your brain before you open your mouth and not your derrière noir.

    …”the DLP did not see its value”….”It is obvious that your assumptions were wrong”……..

    NOT MY ASSUMPSION, but the DLP.

    The Government of the day did not see it as viable, but it would have been much value to future generations, Universities, Schools, Libraries, the Diaspora et al as well as a readily available documentary every anniversary of Barrows birthday and Independence.

    The BLP admin said that if it were about Tom, they would have funded the entire thing.
    You AC confirms its value.

    Alvin…you wont stop telling lies, still making an idiot of yaself, what independence, what struggle, did Barrow not fight in the war FOR UK, after being educated in UK…

    ….did you not hear the little dude Harry telling the young people of Barbados that while the future of the island in in their hands…they are still owned by Liztherat the beast of buckingham palace, I know most people missed that play, Harry slipped it in as was his job,….

    …..it’s only the leaders can break that repeated curse and blight of the young people being programmed to believe they are owned by the monsters in buckingham palace, but only if they stop Harry’s age group from buckinham, returning to the island every 30 years to target the young people for mindwash and reprogramming.

    http://ow.ly/UQvD306JZ7p

    In Harry’s speech…again, the word proud is overused. Buckinham palace needs to be reminded to leave any hint of ownership of black people out of their speeches, the speecges can be given without claiming anyone belonging to Liztherat.

    “You should be very proud to be young Barbadians. You should be proud of the country that your parents and grandparents have built. Now it is your time to honour the work of the generations that have come before you. It is up to you to write the next 50 years of this country’s story.

    “Like other young people around the world, the young people of Barbados face challenges.

    “You look into the future and wonder how technology will change your lives. You wonder how you will obtain the skills and resources to compete in a rapidly changing world. And I know that you worry about the impact climate change will have on island nations like yours.

    “What I say to you is this: the solutions to these challenges will not come from anyone else. The answers must come from you. Good things happen to good people; believe you can make change; and if you lead by example, others will follow.

    “When Barbados marks 100 years of independence, it will be your contribution that will be judged. And we need every one of you, to do all that you can so that in 2066 we have reason to throw an even bigger party than we are throwing tonight.

    “I know that so many young Barbadians are already making a big impact. What I have seen throughout the region and here in Barbados, is that anyone looking for young role models, will find them here in the Caribbean. It is now my great pleasure to invite one of them to join me on stage. Can I please introduce you to one of your own, Jamilla Sealy.

    “Jamilla is passionate about the environment. She teaches environmental science to children and helps to organise communities here in Barbados to keep beaches clean and to understand the threats posed by climate change. She has represented her country at United Nations meetings and is now creating an online map to identify illegal dumpsites.

    “Jamilla is already a strong Barbadian young leader, and tonight I am delighted to announce that she can now call herself one of The Queen’s Young Leaders for 2017.”

    What a crying shame on Bim sorely in need of forex!

    With Papaya (Bajan PAWPAW) being one of the most expensive fruits on the shelves of the ethnic markets stalls all over the Diaspora.

    Can’t some of these be exported or are the phytosanitary conditions in Bim not up to the required standards?

    Why aren’t there any Bajan business people in the Diaspora?

    Up to the challenge, Hants? Both you and Sargeant can play your part in saving Bim’s economic bacon.

    Remember either ‘Earn Forex’ or the Bim (of your idyllic dreams of those halcyon days) perishes.

    @ millertheanunnaki,

    Barbados has a Minister of Agriculture. They have qualified people who could do everything required to export fruit,vegetables and flowers.

    They just need one person to spend a day on the internet to find buyers in the major cities in North America.

    Problem is it takes a lot of work especially picking up a telephone. lol

    Independence 2016 our 50th anniversary…..

    Kudos must go to this govt.who with a bit of help from the skies pulled of a magnificent tour de force of which the BHTA can be proud of.

    Our sewerage,potholes,unkempt fields and decaying infrastructure was well masked from the foreign press thanks to the heavy rains.

    The foreign press was more interested in taking pics of the Windsor Prince and our own Princess than doing an analysis as to the progress of this country at this milestone.

    It could have been 1966 all over…..the ceremonial attire of the troops had the same cut as did the attire at the 50th ball,not many things distinctly bajan at all were present.

    Then we can look at what was highlighted in the areas of medicine,science,agriculture,etc,etc

    In a nutshell we are nothing more than a miniature UK with a different pigmentation…..feel free to correct anything I have said.

    One man’s glut is another man’s opportunity to source local establishments that could purchase his “oversupply”. What constitutes a glut of paw-paws? A few cartons of paw-paws are not evidence of a glut but he should be marketing his fruit to local hotels and restaurants that will promote the local fruit in their various fruit concoctions.

    Last time I checked paw-paws had virtually disappeared from the local landscape because of the presence of some virus so a revival is good news, but Miller can you provide a consistent supply at a reasonable price? Next time you will want me to market bananas because someone in St. John has some on his/her hands and I would have to say no thanks since you can’t compete with Costa Rica.

    Prince Harry meets Rihanna: Did he admit that Royals have sex?

    As reported by The Telegraph, Fabian Sargeant, an HIV counselor, and social worker, noted that barber shops are the perfect places to raise awareness about HIV testing because self-pampering venues provide a comfortable ambiance to talk about sex, friendships, relationships, and whatever is going on with our lives.

    “Everybody tells their hairdresser everything,” Prince Harry said, agreeing to Sergeant’s claims.

    Sargeant, however, later interjected a controversial statement (probably testing his theory about the barber shop) saying: “One of the myths is that royalties do not have sex.”

    Unfortunately, Prince Harry, maybe trying to change the topic just answered with: “And that royalty has blue blood?” Not giving up on it, Sargeant provoked the duke one more time by raising an even more intriguing comment: “Another myth is that royalty does not engage in oral sex.”
