Dr Hinds on race and ethnicity - congrats

What about a `military’ Police Commissioner? Greetings. So very early on in the twenty-five-year-old life of this people’s column I would broach with government (s) the utilisation of our Guyana diaspora.

When our Government ministers speak

-Europe, refugees and reparations: Pay back??

-`We will build a police outpost’ One dictionary definition of “minister” (of the governmental variety) goes as follows: “A high officer of state who heads a division of governmental activities”.

`Keep doing this in remembrance of me’

-on hard labour and medical care

-when historian Granger writes about LFSB For many years on this day, though trying to be more secular, I would discuss the definition of “faith” as it is understood by devoted activist Christians.

A few ladies of Linden….

… And single-parents and `Chile-Mudduhs’

-The haughty officer’s bag of bones I suppose that folks into their seventies and eighties experience two levels of behavioural responses to social events that they do not necessarily appreciate.

Lawlessness and vehicular homicides…

-Registration: Our GECOM Chairman speaks

-Dear City Hall, let’s celebrate with $500,000 Of course the entire lead caption is really “Lawlessness and homicides on our roads- a lack of discipline, education and enforcement.” See?

“To foil the shock of rude invader…”

-The army and the village-guardians

-National Flag, Corentyne’s Children “Her children pledge each faithful hour To guard Guyana’s Lands To foil the shock of rude invaders Who’d violate her earth To cherish and defend forever The state that gave them birth” The foregoing, of course is just a snatch from our Guyana’s Song of the Republic.

Rebellion month – Kofi, Jefferson and Lincoln

-Venezuelan-Guyana-Venezuelan? Accommodation USA?

-GPL: British, Irish, Scandinavian, Jamaican If my regular readers discover that these comments are recycled from 2013 and last February (2017), they are absolutely accurate.

The band! The girls! 25 years (FS) today!

Who really cares about Mashramani?

Jesus: His Egypt and his beer This might just be (the use of elements of) irony if this column turns out to be one of the most brief ones in a long time.

Dreaming of constructive co-existence in 2018

… As we stop fooling ourselves

How criminal enterprise pays Some may recall that I did a somewhat provocative piece a few months ago challenging the usage – and aspirations – found in our national motto.

Regarding our third coalition Christmas

-the baby Jesus after the Nativity

Let’s agree that many of you – my “regulars” – might be allowing yourselves to be caught up in the hurly-burly homestretch to December 25 that Christmas Day widely known now to be misplaced.

Should you trust those you elected?

Honourable Raph. Trotman – spin doctor masterclass

Comrade Mrs Santa Claus and “Pashway” in the House The answer to the question, “should you/should we trust elected representatives?” is yes!

The 2020 Jubilee–and-oil Elections

Likely “socio-electoral” realities

Sexual misconduct: His Excellency is aware With maximum respect to all, I lay claim at being among the first- if not actually the first to describe National Elections 2020 as the Jubilee–Oil Elections.

Giving thanks for Minister Jordan’s $500

-Pensions – and growing old in Guyana

-His Excellency as Comrade-Leader There are occasions when you are quite aggressively upset with a generosity, a gift, even advice offered when you should accept “philosophically” (as in “calmness of temper and judgement”).

From Arcadia to Atlanta: The PNC at 60

- Pardoning lawlessness? Ryhaan’s take

Immigrants of quality! Dammit! And to think I had promised myself not to join real knowledgeables in commenting on People’s National Congress (PNC) leader David Arthur Granger’s remarks to his Party faithful gathered in Atlanta, Georgia, USA two weeks ago.

His Excellency makes the Doctor sound good

Civility? Courtesy? What’s those?

-“Neither here nor there” – Harmon   Of course, it depends on your political perspective and affiliation or sympathy; even your subjective tribal kith-and-kin links and loyalties, combined perhaps with your reasonably thought-out strategy for personal survival, then progress, which easily or eventually colours your assessments of our current national leaders.

Just a few weeks ago, whilst reviewing from a very personal perspective, the six decades of the People’s National Congress (PNC), I recalled the political crossovers of two ideological players.
