World is on fire and we are a disgrace

The world is on fire, raging around us. Corona virus. Economic dystopia. A dying biosphere. Threats of nuclear war. Global warming. Rising sea levels. Here at home, there is “Confusion in the Senate” a “Clash in the House”, and an inability to come to grips with reality and pressing issues which Bahamians are paying for dearly.

Vaccine unlikely to solve pandemic

A report out of China - a herd man has caught the Bubonic Plague. A 15-year-old girl from neighbouring Mongolia also has the Bubonic Plague. In May a Kazakhstan couple who visited Mongolia died. The US Centre for Disease Control (CDC) says every year in the US, seven people are infected with the Bubonic Plague. The Bubonic Plague is a 14th century that killed 50 million people. Although thought to be eradicated the Bubonic Plague still kills people in the 21st century.

When it comes to beaches, I think Caesar had it right

During my short stint in politics, the party with which I was affiliated, the SDP fought a by-election in South Eleuthera. At the time we found ourselves fighting not only the PLP, but also the BDP/FNM, but that is a story for another day.

How we could have prevented pandemic

SARS-CoV-2 is a new coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The virus has destroyed lives and brought the world to a grinding halt.

Replace your advisers

I do not know the owners of the fabled Compass Point but it seems to me that they are being badly advised. Whoever those advisers are they should be replaced as soon as possible. It is most insulting and a non compliance with protocol.

Teachers are crucial

It should be highly appreciated that teachers play a crucial role in societies.

We should back PM over decision to close beaches

Yes, we have brought our community spread under control, thanks to the herculean efforts of this government.

America's leader is taking us to the edge

“Let’s protect each other and our communities. When you visit any BTC store to pay your bill in full, you will receive a free 3-layer protective mask.”

We must turn our sights to other tourism markets in the world

We’re now a day away from July 1. Let’s try to carefully think about what’s going on.

We need trees on the beach – they provide us with shade

A minister was on the news talking about removing trees from beaches.

Bethel must offer his resignation

We profess to follow the so-called Westminster form of constitutional democracy here at home in our wonderful nation. Under that system there are certain constitutional conventions, while not having the force of an actual law or legislation, are followed and observed in the political arena.

Dollar collapse

The United States (US) national debt has reached 26 trillion and is expected to reach 30 trillion in 2021.

Strengthen Parliaments

The International Day of Parliaments was recognised on June 30.

Govt fails to inject any real thought

From the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government has used WHO “guidelines” to justify the decisions they have made.

Why the people of Green Turtle Cay feel neglected

Today makes Day 304 without power at my residence on Green Turtle Cay. My residence has been repaired and is ready for reconnection to the BPL power grid. We were promised, again last week, that Bahamas Power and Light (BPL) would be coming to do hook-ups this week.
