-Mixed-race US Presidents: Bye-Bye Barack
I’m signing up to be a (dubious) fan of Finance Minister Jordan. Occasionally he comes off as unapologetically blunt as his officer colleague, occasional spokesman Harmon.
‘Look how nuff different tings gone-up girl…’
Yes, here I go again early in this still “new” year. A repeat sermonette on the cancer of local corruption, the potentially lost youth as thievery thrives.
Prognostications: What a word!
The APNU+AFC Coalition Political Partners squeaked into power electorally in May 2015.
Recall that APNU, essentially the PNC –People’s National Congress- itself a Burnhamite PPP decades ago- with some amorphous other “Baby Parties” linked up, on Valentine’s Day 2015 to contest the May 2015 elections with the Third-Party AFC.
-Lily passed before legislation passed
-SARU, SARA, SOCU: 2015-2017
Hey and hello all. I hope to be relatively light-hearted dealing with three (3) serious issues as many (most?) of you attend to Christmas-time matters – in the country or in the home.
-People and places to rob before year-end
– Another plea for pensioners 2017
Fortunate still to be experiencing more months to my age and life span, I am increasingly wont to restrain my “celebration” of the Festival of Christmas.From poor, challenging childhood to teens the BG “colonial Christmas“ were a grand mix of European traditions and (British) Guianese elements- from the wintry jingle bells, sleighs, snow and frosty to masquerade, steel band tramps, breaking-up-the-house, renewal and church-going — and yes, our own delectable Christmas Cuisine.
So many fatherless homes for Christmas
– Feliz Navidad companero Moses
If you’re really into the year-end Christmas “syndrome”, this very brief budget 2017 commentary might be the column for you.
God, the villages - and “African” business
Bartica, Byderabo: What’s “Best”?
Because I appreciate all the elements of the national issue that is the fate and future of this country’s sugar industry; and because I do have a connection with Sugar Union GAWU- however distant- I make bold to offer a few simple but pointed and fundamental comments on a challenge that is bound to be “nationally sensitive”.
Victoria: A God neither Black nor White?
It doesn’t take any rabidly – anti-PPP individual or group to raise their eyebrows – or ire whenever that Party essays a particular type of criticism of the Granger administration’s style of governance, missteps or obvious blunders.
-As concerns seriously linger
-My simple anti-crime suggestions
The commentaries, analyses and dissertations regarding the stunning upset electoral victory of billionaire-businessman-playboy Donald J Trump are not likely to end.
-Gunmen in the National Assembly?
-Elections USA: Some “Black” Presidents
Okay friends, bear with me as I return yet once more to my dubiously-favourite theme of a modern-day moral dilemma.
-Independent thinkers- The Party/ Government line
Far be it for me, an ageing patriot who chose to live and stay solely and only in this country of my birth, to bad-talk it negatively in a consistent manner.
-some puzzles from the Coalition Cabinet
Firstly, I am aware of the numerous analyses, predictions and conclusions being published daily regarding this 2016 (unconventional) election campaign now raging in the USA.I still add my layman’s bit as anyone with just a bit of interest in electoral politics – and has Cable TV- must be enthralled by the rather strange goings on across the US at this time.
“C” is for Corrica, Calypso, Canary- and clay blocks
Up front I’ll concede that today’s lead topic above consists of my layman’s ramblings on a societal issue that is very complex, complicated, technical, even profound.
– junk-city Georgetown?
I often hesitate to jump into debates on issues of national significance when many other knowledgeable and eminently-qualified minds are weighing in on such matters.
-Coalition politics and victors
The man I knew as “father” was a policeman all his life. Even in his retirement when he taught young recruits to drive and was himself the driver and “Man Friday” for Sir Shridath Ramphal, he remained an “Ole police” at heart.
