On The Brink Of ‘Anarchy’ – Think On These Things Barbados

Flashback to the Dudus Coke tension in Jamaica

All the signs have appeared that a Barbados society which not too long ago had well manicured lawns have become overrun with weeds. The news that several people assembled at the District A Magistrates Court this week – some to show support for those accused of the shooting at Gully Hill, Carrington Village on New Years Day –  is an ominous sign. A parallel can be made to what transpired on Monday  [9/1/2012] to how some Jamaicans reacted during the Dudus Coke affair.

Then there is the temptation to juxtapose what occurred at the Magistrate Courts with the news that a 6-year old impasse between principal Jeff Broomes of the Alexandra School and the Barbados Secondary Teachers Union (BSTU) has flared up. Can anyone guess who is the ‘party’ most affected by what is unfolding? The Children!

At a time when ‘swords’ are being drawn and sides taken in a matter which should have been resolved at a staff meeting so many years ago, what does it tell us? Here is a hint. Barbados is a country which has invested billions of dollars in educating its people and yet our educators are impotent to resolve a disagreement.

What would you say has been the return on the billion dollar investment if we were to judge by the Alexander transaction?

  • The Minister of Education and the Ministry of Education have been quite cogent in their pronouncements to date. A date certain for these teachers to return to the classroom must be published without delay and failing compliance, they will be terminated. A return to the status quo ante and careful adherence to the stated grievance procedures is the only way out of this thicket.

  • the results of the investment indicates that we are bright but not shining.on another note , it calls for more than cogency now that the horse is out of the stable. the festering sore has now become cancerous because of the inaction of those who failed miserably to heal the wound. the big stick approach cannot work because both sides must come out saving face and this is a delicate matter which might even usher in arbitration or resolution by the law courts since the socalled heavy rollers of trade union negotiations in barbados seem to have been rendered impotent and would soon be recognised only for their loquaciousness when talk does not matter.

  • It is claimed this is the year to decree it and speak it. This is the new year of the new beginnings. I hope it is towards the positive. So much ‘cleaning up’ to do but if we begin to do it now, the task will not be difficult.

    This is a small island and it can be all fixed with simple common sense and logic. We can get back to peace, harmony, care and love in the way we deal with people, our health, our food….it will take good thinkers and excellent management of the various areas of the cleansing…large boards that take years to make decisions are not one of them…the Ministers perhaps taking matter directly into their own hands, going out to the people, ensuring that action is taken according to those under “great thinkers” and adhering to the directions of those in excellent management, to get the job done and get it right. Transparency of all ’cause technology is a hell of a media and the people are not only speaking up through this but now it looks like they are taking to the streets as well – yes! that photograph could be Jamaica during Dudus and even Vybes Kartel – so someting is wrong.

    When I took a photo of a sign in Wildey that said “We love you Dudus” I put it up on Facebook and said we must take care, Dudus is here….people we are going to have problems. One person said: “Oh that is just one foolish person, probably a Jamaican.”

    When in 1981 I found a man in my bedroom taking my jewellery and chased him…I had been accustomed of leaving the house open all the time, the front door lock was not working and I would even to away on business with not a care in the world I called Jeanette Layne Clarke and told her: “Jeanette there is trouble on the horizon. I think drugs are going to soon determine what will be going on in this island.” At first she did not believe me, within six months she was writing about it. Since then crime has risen into proportions we never thought would be possible.

    When during the CBC news we have porn sounds coming through for the whole island to hear, and it is made national news in a second, with all revealed on the internet…and Facebook so full of people laughing and wanting more…instead of being mortified, you know something wrong.

    When a building that belongs under the umbrella of a heritage site that can be taken away as fast as it was given by UNESCO with one wrong move, has workers on it who when begged to stop systematically destroying the most important parts of same, refuse to do so and…how did they get permission to even begin…one has to know that our sensibilities have gone through the eddoes.

    And the above are but a few…remember I said a few… of the small things…remember I said small things….things that fester into big things…some …remember I said some….CLICO, EMERA, BL&P, GMO FOODS, PINE HILL NON-FRESH’ MILK, ANIMALS FED WITH GROWTH HORMONES AND ANTIBIOTICS, ROUNDABOUTS THAT HAVE COST MILLIONS AND DOAN WORK, AN EMBARRASSING TO EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN BARBADOS SITUATION AT FOUR SEASONS….What is the thought here…to me it spells one thing – THERE HAS TO BE TROUBLE IN PARADISE PEOPLES.

    As a person who loves this country with all her heart, this makes me sad and makes me want to leave and find peace elsewhere…I came home to make a difference because I did not want to see this island not be everything it could be…but open your mouth and people doan like it, then when it all hits the fan…no one wants to believe it. There are so many like myself that are very, very tired. Are we prepared for the loss of those who love the rock to leave it to those who don’t? I hope not.

    I am not a soothsayer…I am not someone who can look into the future and know what it will bring. But I do have a brain. As David King said “I am not dotish!”. I have always been able to see the trees for the forest. Barbados has been systematically made to believe that all is well whilst the ‘eye-diggers’ have had a a field day and now we are in trouble. Oh! Yes! we are. But still, still, still…there are those who close their minds and call people like myself “the troublemakers”, “the frauds”…even “racists”…(perhaps to move away from the truth with negativity???) when all we would want to see for this beautiful island is peace and health and equal opportunity and a good life for all. What saddens me is that is IT IS POSSIBLE.

    May you all have a wonderful day and may we all begin to think and manage this little rock in a better way before it is really too late. Remember the rabbit in Alice “I’m late, I’m late for a very important date.” Let that date is now, and it better not pass us allowing worse to befall us. Bless. 🙂

  • Reality strikes back: a review of Richard Heinberg’s The End of Growth

    by Chris Stratton

    If you’re worried about the recession and looking for reassurance that the world’s economies will soon be back on track and everything will return to normal, you should probably stop reading now.

    But maybe you’re concerned about all the debt we’re in. Maybe you’re skeptical about how we currently measure societal progress and personal well-being. If you’re prepared to examine the hard, unsettling economic and environmental realities that await us, then may I recommend to you, brave reader, Richard Heinberg’s The End of Growth.

    Heinberg’s overarching message is that the current economic downturn is not temporary and that, because we have now reached fundamental, unalterable ecological limits, economic growth is gone for good. In other words, the world is in for a permanent economic depression, as currently defined.

    snip

    Heinberg goes on to explain that because we’re reaching peak…well…peak everything, and because economic growth relies on natural resources and the Earth’s ability to process our wastes, this growth simply can’t continue. He says that our money has come to represent claims on goods and services that just don’t exist. Through debt and “fiat” currency, the amount of money in the world just gets bigger and bigger, while the Earth’s total stock of resources remains the same. Something has to give.

    snip

    Heinberg asserts that the end of growth has profound social and economic implications for “developed” and “developing” countries alike. The argument from the rich has long been that we don’t have to be concerned about redistributing the economic pie (both among and within countries) because the pie is constantly growing; well, without growth, that argument falls apart. And remember all that “development” that developing countries were going to do? …maybe not so much. In short, Heinberg says we’ll no longer have the prospect of growth to paper over issues of inequity. The Occupy movement began after this book was published, but if Heinberg is right, it’s just the beginning of many inequity-based upheavals to come.

    Great, so we’re screwed. Now what? The bad news is that we can’t keep “improving” in the ways we have traditionally defined it—primarily by consuming ever more and better stuff. The good news, say Heinberg and many others, is that maybe we don’t need growth to be better off. Maybe our measurements of well-being and progress have been flawed all along. Heinberg advocates for “redefining progress” using alternative economic metrics that, unlike GDP, are not based on how fast we make and consume stuff, but rather on how happy and healthy we are, whether or not our communities are thriving, and how much agency we have in our lives.

    But, until we stop looking at the multiplicity of ‘symptoms’ of our rapidly decaying society, I.e, morality, ethos, etc, etc., and be honest enough to FACE head-on, the CAUSE of such DECAY, we’ll continue seeking solutions, in the wrong places of ‘humanism’ our futile efforts, to restore a FOUNDATION that cannot stand on clay, hay and stubble, because:

    “UNLESS, the LORD builds the house, ( family unit, parish, NATION!) They labour in vain who build IT* UNLESS, the LORD guard the city, The
    watchman stays awake in VAIN.” ( Psa. 127.1) Emphasis added.

    “If You, LORD, should mark INIQUITIES, O lord, who could stand? ( Psa. 130: 3)

    Iniquities, from the Heb. ‘Avon’ means, ‘Evil, fault, SIN, iniquity, guilt, blame, MORAL ILLNESS, perversion, crookedness, its derivitive ‘Avah’ means to ‘bend’ or ‘distort. Thus, iniquity is the ‘EVIL BENT’ within human beings, or the ‘crooked’ direction or ‘warped’ deeds of sinners.

    Our little nation society, like all other nations, IS filled with such an ‘evil bent’ of iniquity, it knowns NO colour or class distinction, as it permeats from the TOP of our societal class(s) to the lowest, and it stinkes before Almighty God, who Alone has blessed us, and kept us, whom we have TURNED AWAY from, looking to secular materialism, humanisn, moral relativism, etc, etc; any wonder that we are in a free-fall, of decay, morally, spiritually, which WILL destroy us economically!!!

    A system should be in place that if anyone started any foolishness in the court yard they would be removed immediately and charged with a quickness.

    Of course, this does not solve the deep-rooted societal problems that are at the cause of all this. But I feel that if people in authority have proper systems in places like the court to deal with this type of thing, and show zero tolerance for anti-social behaviour, then it is at least a start and some of these people would think twice before they tried their nonsense.

    Thermodynamics for Economists
    Or “Economics for Scientists”
    Reverse Engineering the Global Economy

    By Mark Cunnington

    The field of mainstream economics uses many charts, numbers and theories with nice smooth lines to characterize how our economies and societies (should) behave. My economics textbooks are full of these. Since everything that happens in the universe, including our economies, is driven by energy, the economics charts by necessity imply a lot of things going on in the background. Those underlying goings-on can be quite involved, but they aren’t incorporated into the charts. This is a problem because the charts do not account for energy flow.

    The Laws of Thermodynamics

    The characteristics of energy flow are described by the laws of thermodynamics. The prospect of these can be a little intimidating but they are actually very simple, and you don’t need to have some complex understanding of what energy is to grasp them. In fact, most people already have a very good intuition about what energy is — it’s the stuff that makes things happen. The issue is understanding how energy behaves, because a lot of people think that we can produce energy, but we can’t. We simply use the laws of thermodynamics to our advantage.

    snip

    Why these laws are the way they are is up to anyone’s belief system to explain – God, Allah, Bodh, material reductionism, etc. So you need not feel threatened by them. But they are what they are and they cannot be disputed. They aren’t up for debate.

    And by now you might be wondering … when is he going to get to the point, and what do black holes have to do with economics? Well, when it comes to thermodynamics, a lot actually, because most (all?) mainstream economists have managed to convince themselves of certain principles that violate the laws of thermodynamics. Of course, nothing can do that, not even black holes, at least statistically on a macroscopic scale. Therefore, we must entertain the inevitable conclusion that if we are to continue following these flawed economic principles then we will be encountering some major problems in the near future when the limits of the laws of thermodynamics come knocking. The problem is, just because an economist can write an idea down in a chart on a piece of paper, does not make it genuinely applicable to the real world. This is why the scientific method is important, because it provides you with the obligation to compare your hypothetical idea with the real world and scrutinize its validity. Unfortunately, mainstream economists do not follow the scientific method. Therefore, any of the wonderful “theories” they produce should be received with great suspicion.

    snip

    Mainstream economists are living in a fantasy world. What they need is an understanding of how the real world works – the thermodynamic principles describing our energy systems, and the ecological processes responsible for providing the food on our tables. After all, these are in many ways the most important physical things we can have access to (they pretty much cover the “food, clothing and shelter” side of it). And since providing “food, clothing and shelter” is what economics is all about, you’d think economists should have a pretty good understanding of the underlying principles that actually bring about “food, clothing and shelter”. So why don’t they? It’s baffling.

The parties have lost trust in the MOE, Jeff Broomes BSTU,the teachers have all lost faith in the Ministry because of its failure to give corrective long term solutions to the problems in Queeen St.
    There has been wrong on both sides and in the present impasse a lot of ill advised statements have been allowwed to pollute the place under the guise of oneupmanship. The union has no faith in the MInistry to solve this matter. The principal must have complained about it and got no clear response and so in frustration made the damning comment. The Ministry should call in a third party amenable to both sides and thrash out the grievances and make each one of the party agree to its resolution.
    This is a human situation and I do not see the striking teachers being comfortable working with Mr Broomes especially as we have 14 senior members of staff embroiled in this matter. Mr Broomes should go for his own sanity, well being and governance o fthe institution. Think on these things

    A former government administrations created a series of events that allowed disrespect for authority to reign unchecked.in Barbados
    Corruption in the public service where posts were created without the knowledge of Personnel Administration.Public officers unceremoniously removed from posts and political lackeys took their places.Public officers worked in an environment of fear not knowing who will be next to either be made redundant or transfer to another department.Public officers being verbally abused by politicians and threatened.Sexual favours being done for some services from government agencies – Housing,Welfare & Social Transformation.
    One of our former Prime Ministers lied to the people of Barbados indicating he does not have any children but lo & behold a young girl could emerged a little while after and our for Prime Minister indicating to the country that this young lady is his daughter.
    One of our former Prime Ministers sullied the office of Prime Minister by having a relationship with one of his employees who eventually became his wife while still married to his former wife.
    One of our former Prime Ministers admitted that he conspired to break the laws of Barbados by hiring illegal Guyanese to perform work at his private home building cupboards.The Chief Law Maker at that time became the Chief Law Breaker .
    The apparent disregard for law & order,the callous attitude of Barbadians and the moral decline in Barbados have its genesis in the performance & behavior of many of our leaders with the politicians being the major culprits.
    The chaotic situation Barbados finds itself in today is a reflection of our past.This situation can be rectified with strong,decisive leadership from all our major institutions – government,judiciary,church & other institutions.Unfortunately at this juncture,Barbados is saddled with weak leadership in many of our institutions.A Prime Minister who is unwilling or unable to make or take tough decisions.A discredited & corrupt opposition political party that is not in any position to offer any positive hope, if unfortunately,Barbadians have to return to that party for governance.

    WARNING: When we released Antichrist Identity I-IV, 15 times we had to convince our service provider not to shut down our website because of numerous complaints they had received. With the Antichrist Identity V don’t be surprised if this website is not here tomorrow.

    Health or No Health. This report had to be released!

    My name is Mel Sanger, the author of this eagerly awaited, new unique release called the Antichrist Identity V.

    The research for this new publication is based on 12 months of study. You may not be aware but this publication was supposed to have been launched in July 2011. Unfortunately halfway through writing this report I became seriously ill and was advised by the doctors because of my medical condition to take early retirement.

    However in September against their advice and the advice of many I decided to continue the completion of this project as I just wasn’t able to live with myself knowing that I was unable to complete this project, especially at a time which is one of the most critical phases in the development of the antichrist new world order and one world government.

    So I am thankful that this report is now complete and ready for you to download, but first I wanted to ask you something.

    A Serious Question For You!

    Do you believe that major developments such as the Arab Spring (i.e. the revolutions taking place across the Arab world like Libya, Egypt etc), the absolute chaos in the European Union with the bankruptcy of Greece, Italy, Portugal, the emergence of the Vatican backing Germany as the one country that the European Union is dependant on for its survival are events that are totally unrelated?

    What about the August riots in the United Kingdom, the creation of the Tony Blair faith foundation, the implementation of socialist policies by Barack Obama in the US, the leak that several major research facilities successfully creating unethical animal hybrids, the coming plans of a global body to regulate the internet and Switzerland giving into pressure regarding its 100 year old banking privacy policies….

    Do you believe that all of these events and many more that I could spell out are simply happening by chance?

    Or are you a person who believes that there is some intelligent design behind everything that is going on around you in the news regarding the economy and politics.

    When you switch on the TV and see the music being propelled by some of the world major music stars such as Jay Z, Kanye West, Rihanna, Beyonce and Lady Gaga, does your TV have the special ability to slow down what you are watching by 90% so that you can see the hidden symbols that are flashing too fast for the human eye to be even aware of? If you were to see these symbols and then go to your local library and see these symbols in books associated with witchcraft and demonology would you simply shrug your shoulders and say its sheer coincidence.

    You see the reason for the release of the Antichrist Identity V is that 98% of the population are living in ignorance. 98% of the population do not have any idea as to what is happening in today’s world. Like sheep they simply do what they are told and accept what they see and hear.

    And I am sure also where you personally have tried to present people with truth or tried to get people to think outside of the box about the real reason that specific events are happening you have been given the cold shoulder, or have been laughed at or looked upon as being someone weird or even been accused of being a possible danger to society.

    The Spirit of the Antichrist!

    You see many people are talking about looking for the Antichrist and I can agree that I do believe that there will be a coming personal Antichrist. However there is also something called the spirit of the Antichrist and whether its politics, economics, music, hollywood, religion, science or the environmental agenda, the spirit of the Antichrist has infiltrated every aspect of society and has in one of the most lethal ways conditioned us to not even be aware of the changes taking place which are propelling us rapidly into the clutches of a one world government.

    What is the Antichrist Identity V?

    The Antichrist Identity V is the final part of a major series in which I will name the names of the people who are supporting this diabolical agenda. Not only names but also the organizations that have been set up specifically to carry us into a one world government dictatorship without people even realizing what is is happening before its too late.

    There is so much information that you need to see that I have had to divide the report into the 5 following parts. Over 350 pages, 300 footnotes and 100 illustrations for what is a fascinating but heart wrenching journey in understanding the relevance of the world government agenda being rolled right now in November 2011.

    So lets take a look now at some examples of the features tackled in the Antichrist Identity V.

    ——————————————————————————–

    1. Foundation of Global Government (The Political Agenda)

    Why has all of a sudden the European Union suddenly imploded and in economic turmoil? What does this mean for the future of Europe and the world economy? (Addressed in Part 1: Page 66) Click Here for Sneak Preview

    Are you aware that the United States is still controlled by Great Britain and the Crown? Who are the black nobility, who believe they are the descendants of King David? (Addressed in Part 1: Page 37)

    What was leaked as the key objectives of the Bilderberger agenda this year in St Moritz? (Addressed in Part 1: Page 76)

    What is actually happening across the Arab world right now with the overthrow of Gadaffi in Libya, Mubarak in Egypt and revolutions and uprisings in other Arab states. What is the prophetic significance. Does this bode well for world peace? (Addressed in Part 1: Page 85)

    Is it true that many of the new policies signed by Barack Obama share a striking similarity to those policies that were the soul of the Soviet Union before the collapse of communism? (Addressed in Part 1: Page 80)

    ——————————————————————————–

    2. The Abolition of Privacy (The Privacy Agenda)

    Are you aware that in June 2011 that Barack Obama was given power by the Senate to seize control of parts of the internet and order its complete shutdown? What is the future for free speech on the internet? (Addressed in Part 2: Page 5)

    How could Switzerland, one of the last bastions of banking privacy give into the United States and reveal the names of over 500 individuals in the US with offshore accounts in Switzerland. Why is it that within the next 3 years that offshore banking and banking privacy will be a thing of the past? (Addressed in Part 2: Page 17)

    In August 2011 the US government made a statement that they would scrap the Fairness Doctrine, a policy which could have killed off internet talk radio stations, However why is this a smokescreen which is lulling talk radio stations into a false sense of security? (Addressed in Part 2: Page 23)

    30 of the most common questions regarding the RFID microchip which is being pushed by the PositiveID corporation. i.e. Does the chip implants cause cancer tumors? What information is stored on the chip? (Addressed in Part 2: Page 30)

    ——————————————————————————–

    3. Super Technology and Dark Genetics (The Science/Paranormal Agenda)

    Why is there so much significance attached to Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany’s fascination with the occult and UFO’s? What happened to all of their research and findings after their defeat at the hand of the allies during World War II? (Addressed in Part 3: Page 5)

    Is there such as thing as an inter-dimensional portal or a gateway between the physical realm and the realm of angels? A massive interview with a world authority who was involved with the US government stargate agenda! Addressed in Part 3: Page 36)

    Did Aleister Crowley and Jack Parsons really try to create the child of the devil? What is the link between their moonchild ritual, Rosemary’s Baby and Avatar? Addressed in Part 3: Page 87)

    Which particular form of Genetic technology is closely associated with the creation of the Antichrist? Addressed in Part 3: Page 99)

    ——————————————————————————–

    4. Decoding The Messages (The Media Agenda)

    How could innocent looking movies such as Sherlock Holmes and the Wizard of Oz actually be full of decoded occultic messages?

    If you have friends who closely follow many of today’s music stars whether on MTV, American Idol, X Factor etc how do you believe they would react if you were to give them access to the video documentaries which come with this package so they could visually see the seductive dangers pointed out in this report?

    In what way has Hollywood tried to pervert the true history of freemasonry and the Illuminati so that we believe these are simply legends rather than actual fact.

    Kanye West, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Beyonce – What is the significance of them including the the symbol of the horned devil, Baphomet and other occult messages in their music videos. Is this sheer coincidence or intelligent design?

    ——————————————————————————–

    5. Codex Alimentarius, The Green Religion and the Interfaith Agenda (The Religious/Ecology Agenda)

    Why is Codex Alimentarius an incredible plot to wipe out the alternative therapy and alternative supplement market. What role and significance do the big Pharmaceutical cartels have in Congress. (Addressed in Part 5: Page 4) Click Here for Sneak Preview

    The Club Of Rome agenda to reduce the world population and promote Gaia principles has taken on a more aggressive tone over the last few years. Which individuals and companies are forcing its agenda through? Addressed in Part 5: Page 22)

    The big show stopper between Islam and Christianity is the theology of Jesus Christ so how can a one world religion truly emerge or is there an umbilical chord which could possibly unite Islam and Christianity? (Addressed in Part 5: Page 69)

    Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) has previously kicked people off its airtime including Jack Van Impe and Hal Lindsey, yet Joel Osteen who recently stated that Mormons were our Christian brothers is given all the airtime he needs What is actually going on with Paul and Sandra Crouch? (Addressed in Part 5: Page 83)

    What Makes This Report Different From Others!

    Recently I was interviewed about this publication and asked what makes this different from other reports on the topic. My response was that there has literally been no report published this year which tackles the breadth of information in these reports. Many of the reports released this year are mainly focused on 2012 as being the end of the world and simply scare tactics.

    The Antichrist Identity V was written for serious people who don’t want pages of regurgitated junk about how to take your family to some cave out in the desert with tins of imperishable food items and wait for the storm to blow over. This is serious stuff. We are talking here about things that will impact you, your children and grandchildren. We are talking here about the eternal destiny of people being at stake. These are issues we cannot run away from or hide in a cave waiting for it to go away.

    However because I believe 100% whole heartedly that people need to be empowered to do their own research that is why with this report you have over 300 footnotes to follow up on to check the sources of information that has been used to put this research together. It is vital that you understand that the things happening are really and honestly real.

    We cannot prevent bible prophecy from being fulfilled but we can inform people so that they are not deceived by agreeing to things that could impact their eternity, safety, privacy or religious rights.

    Do I Need to Have Read Antichrist Identity I-IV before this 5 Part Report?

    No, there is an introduction report which comes with this package which provides an overview of the Antichrist Identity Part I-III which was released in 2008 and the Antichrist Identity IV (“Holy War”) which was released in 2009. So if this is the first time you are aware of this series you can dive in straight away. The Antichrist Identity V is the closing piece of this series and by far the most critical and relevant yet so you can download it straight away without worrying about missing previous reports in the series.

    A Tribute from Reece Woodstock
    Hi All. My name is Reece Woodstock and I am the Chief Editor for the Global Watch Weekly report which goes out to thousands of people every Friday. I have known Mel Sanger for the last 7 years and I am deeply saddened by the fact that he has had to take early retirement next month because he has been an incredible person to work with. His insights and ability to breakdown and explain the meaning of current events has been simply astonishing at times. He has my full recommendation. I was honored to review a pre release of the Antichrist Identity V and simply could not put the report down, especially Part 3. Our weekly reports are good but they pale in comparison to the level of detail that Sanger provides. A simply amazing piece of work by any standard.

    A Tribute from Kerry Davies
    Hey All. I am Kerry and I have known Mel personally for the last 2 years. I also am the administrator support for our members. It was Mel who helped me to understand that some of the programs I was making my kids watch were simply unsuitable. Mel has helped my eyes to be opened. Before I used to think a lot of this information was simply the work of over zealous religious nuts. But over time I am thankful that the scales have been removed from my eyes and I have been able to see the sinister way in which a new world order is being rolled out. In my review of the pre-release, Part 4 was the most relevant because it really gives insight into the power of music and film to influence our youth today. Like Reece I am devastated that Mel his retiring but feel blessed to know him and his great work.

    This is Your Choice!

    There is no beating around the bush or hard sell with this mammoth report. Surely something deep within your soul is aware that something is not right about what we are being fed on the news about the economy. Why is that one week you are told that the economy is experiencing growth and then the next minute you are told that the recession is worsening. The yo yo effect of the media is creating significant fear within the population and it is fear which the global elite feed on.

    Fear of terrorism, fear of the end of the world happening in 2012, fear of lack of employment, fear of not believing that the police will aid you when needed, fear that someone can break into your house and if you injure them the law is not on your side. Yet it is through fear that more electronic surveillance is being installed, it is because of fear why they are seeking to control the internet and blackberry messaging systems. It is because of fear why eventually the population will be convinced that microchip technology will be the new future of crime control.

    We need to wake up so that we can be aware of these things and take a stand for what is right and support those in our political and educational system who are daring to be giants and go against the flow in shining the torch on exposing falsehood and delaying the global elite plans by reconnecting our nations to the importance of true prayer, the family unit, the importance of marriage and positive role models. Take your first step and be one of the 2% of the population who are seeking the alternative truth.

  • The BSTU is playing on the por administration at the MOE. Since the matter has reached this point, the teachers should be given a date when to return to school or face being FIRED, Mr Broomes should be asked to step aside, and a date chosen to air their complaints and has some dialouge between all the parties. When a decision is made both the teachers and the principal would have to deal with it or accept dismisal. No other principal would be happy with any of these disgruntale teacher being in his/her school. Plus the BSTU has already declared war on the principals for siding with Mr Broomes. Of most importants is for Network Services to work with the students and parents/guardians of the AX school to get them back on track. In the interset of ALL unions Mary Redman should also be asked to step down and the BSTU refrained from behaving in a combative manner. It seem she is ready to declare war on CXC and anyone who tells her the teacher is wrong for submitting the SBA’s late. This woman has a BIG PROBLEM.

    Are you being difficult?
    The porn groans were heard during the live presentation of the weather news. This is something you should be able to verify.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    CBC has a valid excuse. Recently an intrepid crew from CBC ,as aired in a recent programme, went exploring the newly discovered tunnels around George Washington House and Bush Hill. The sounds heard during the news last night could have been a delayed effect of the sounds picked up in the Bush Hill area.”
    *******************************************
    What has really happened DAVID, is that people have not recognised that FREUNDEL quietly carried out the CABINET RESHUFFLE!

    He removed “Pornville” Inniss from Health and put him in charge of CBC. What we heard on the CBC weather news is the aftermath of the immediate influence of “Pornville” Inniss of ORGASM.COM fame.

    Pornville’s “rubber” has “clit” … OOPS …… I meant “hit” the ground running!

  • Now that the country’s head is bad the rest of the administrative staff , plus all the others who think they have some clout, are now coming out uncontrolled. Funny thing there are some “badboys” who are going to or is already taking advantage of this situation. This is just another cancer that is hitting this country, unless we start dealking with some of these problems, they will all escalate and suddenly we will become the laughing stock of the region. Wake up bajans let us put our hands and minds together and take back this once beautiful country of ours
