Challenging the cocaine: The DEA and US
It really was a bit of a co-incidence finding a batch of my “historical” notes on CARICOM, along with a related newspaper clipping of a few years ago.
That Cummingsburg Valentine affair
I suspect that I’ve “grabbed” your attention with my lead caption. Because that’s what I intended: to arrest your interest for the next eight/ten minutes.
-One Minister’s Bank Accounts, Investments, Wealth
Hello there my nationalistic, patriotic Guyanese friends, please try to tolerate my vastly different view and perspective – perhaps provocative – on the issues mentioned in my lead caption today.
- Scaremongering? The President, The Minister – and My Citizenship
Today this should be my most brief in weeks. Much of it is necessary summarised repetition. To me, necessary because although (global) context is generally useful in locating issues, even theories, our once-innocent Guyana has recently ranked significantly high on the international listings of States that are characterized by pervasive government–generated and executive–friendly corruption.
When Justice Claudette vitiated
What should a citizen – young, or matured and experienced – understand about (the concept of) patriotism?
Simply put, it is “Love of and for country (of birth or adoption)”.
A close election: The Jagdeo effect?
This man-in-the-street, 23-year-old column welcomes the Presidency of David Granger, as well as his brand-new administration which should be unfolding, personnel-wise, as you read this.
-Confessions from the voter A.A. Fenty
Pardon me, but dammit! I have a deadline to meet editorially which precludes me from awaiting even the significant, substantial preliminary results from Dr Surujbally’s GECOM, the authorized, Constitutional Election Commission.
-The likely President Granger?
I hinted at this intriguing editorial which appeared in the State-controlled, PPP-oriented, government-friendly Guyana Chronicle of last week Tuesday (April 28, 2015).
I am not surprising myself today – my penultimate piece before our May 11 D-Day-when I am finding it challenging to write on something different and relevant at this time.
- Exploring a PYO mind
Next week Friday is Labour Day. If ever one of Guyana’s too–numerous Public Holidays was justified and valid it is this national occasion which recognizes and celebrates the local and global contributions of the working class to a nation’s development and sustenance.
- preparing for electoral defeat
Determined to be time–out brief today even as others plunge real deep into the electoral politics of the current robust campaigns.
-Dayclean breaks for the Coalition
As I wrote and promised three columns ago, today’s very brief piece is another contribution from me to GECOM’s and the political parties’ Voter Education process and efforts.
-On Jesus, Christianity and Easter
“At the graveside the emotional outbursts of the windows and relatives of the deceased had been intensely distressing and I could not restrain my tears.
-Homer’s cocaine – and God
Months before the 2011 elections, I wrote a very short piece in this column which carried the same caption as the lead today.
-Guns – and Fenty’s Agricola-again
Hello you electors/voters. Perhaps I’m impertinent enough to dare to present a few pointers/discussion points with respect to elements of current voter-education initiatives now being contemplated, or implemented – But I do so never-the-less.
