Symptom of a Decaying Society | Barbados Murders For 2017

This week Barbadians were given a horrific insight into how the crime underworld operates- David Ellis referred to it as a sub [counter] culture.

Have a listen to the program and form your conclusions.

Full records on 21 August 2018 at this LINK.

The following analysis by blogger on Caribbean Signal serves to foment to the discussion.

  • Angela I believe you are quite on target and being bold enough to speak out… beware now you will be branded because of your association with me they will shame you and slander you as well, just like they did Hal…. The Really Regrettable Situation is that those who remain silent are bullied by the likes of the ‘Stench’ and by their Hush their Silence is Consent! THANK GOD FOR THOSE WITH BACKBONE!

    I am Amused when I see people Haggling for one Party or the other in Barbados whether B or D when Both are Socialist Governments… Socialism is the Greatest Fraud Pupated on mankind in the Twenty and Twenty first Centaury’s while it promised Prosperity, Equality, and Security, it delivered Poverty, Misery, and Tyranny.

    … A System of Governance Masquerading as Being Benevolent while robbing those who work to give to those who are encouraged not to. It all Equates to Buying Votes.

    Every Individual is Encouraged to Dream Big and Multiply the Gifts and Talents they have been Endowed by their Creator with! Remember the Parable of the Talents…those who multiplied their Talents were given more…those who refused to be Industrious from him it was taken away and given to the one who by his Diligence Prospered. Nowadays Socialism works in the Reverse taking from those who work and giving to those who do not calling it Social Justice…just another term for Legalised Robbery!

    The Plan for Aeons of The New World Order is One World Governance …Bottom line “The Aim of Socialism is Communism”…Vladimir Lenin


    We in Barbados like most countries in the world have adopted this system of Governance that is Stifling the Nation, literally taking the wind out of its Sails. Under this system, a ruling authority arbitrarily sets common Moral, Social, and Economic aims and, to achieve those aims, dictates the standards and rules by which individuals live and work.

    “A nation of Free Individuals limit government by managing their own needs and their own charitable causes—while Serfs, and Slaves, handover their authority over their own actions, their own beliefs, their own individual welfare, and their own individual responsibilities to that of a Master’s Management or to Governmental Authority that will give away their labor, corrupt them with it, and ultimately uniformly bind society in “egalitarianism”

    Socialism has No Theory of Wealth Creation; it’s just a Destructive, Envy-Driven Fantasy about Redistributing Wealth after something else (and somebody else) creates it first. The slow Poison of Government and Corporations, Crony Capitalism has Infiltrated almost every level of Socialist Countries and is now being used as Fodder to Promote Socialism.




  • June,
    Thanks for your concerns. But, as anyone who knows me will tell you, I do not run from fights. I will defend myself. But I love the appalling ignorance that passes as intelligence from this bitter, envious, pre-dementia mob that has nothing better to do during the day than attempt to smear and intimidate.


  • Thank you Hal… It is a Clan Collectivist Herd Mentality, the Really Regrettable Situation is that those who remain Silent are bullied by the likes of the Stench and by their Consensual Hush, their Silence is Consent! They do so because their turn has not come as yet!

    Angela glad you enjoyed my Artwork, Our Heavenly Truly has Blessed and Prospered me and through has Generous Benevolence and I have been able to develop many gifts and talents in the Arts on many levels. Prosperity does not necessarily equate to Monetary gain as last year my family and I became homeless and it is through the Charitable Compassion of others that we have a roof over our heads. We are still hoping for a favorable outcome through the Court of Justice. What we have had to endure would have destroyed most but we have been sustained in our trials.

    It is a Tragedy when you have given the strongest years of your life to building a Company that is partly yours and because of Greed and Envy, the majority Shareholder cuts you off at the heals to acquire the Company for he and his, having Returned Evil for Good. That was my husband’s only source of income and he was 54 years of age. As Fredrick Douglas says “You take away the Pillars that support my house, you take away my life”. I suppose that was the Intent.

    My family have learned much through these Years of Tribulation, Starting over Twice since then and always looking to the God of Generosity and Not to the State as nowadays so many look to the State as their Shepard. Our needs have always been met no matter the Darkest hour. I think we all have been All Fortified and by our Faith have become Encouraged to Weather the Storms of life.

    That is why it is Evil to Judge a Situation that you have absolutely No Knowledge of the Circumstances, but continue on in Condemnation because of your Conjured Nefarious Intentions! Thing is we all have to answer one day and I have warned that we will be Judged by the words we Speak…No Doubt about That!!


  • They are so many Struggling in Barbados, so many can’t make ends meet. Even if you have a Berry today the Government takes it tomorrow. Socialism Impoverishes Everyone except those who Rule.

    From my Simple observation, how does the BLP & the DLP differ in their Ideology??? I am very concerned that unless we practice Free Market Principles with less Burdensome Rules, Regulations and Controls, the Reaper lies at the Gate!!

    “Governments make no money they only Spend money, that is why Socialist Governments love Businesses, that way they depend on Entrepreneurs to build businesses and to employ people so that they can TAX them so that they can live HIGH ON THE HOG!

    This Elitist in the world, live off the Sweat of others through Taxation and Manipulation.

    In Barbados 2/3 of the money collected by Government is paid towards debt and 1/3 is paid to the Government Bureaucracy. Where do you think the 100% comes from? -It comes from off the backs of those working who are mostly oblivious to the amount extracted from them by the numerous forms of Assessments, Duties, Levy’s, and Exercise forms of Taxation!

    Promises, Promises, Promises… All Politicians do is promise more entitlements and when buying votes its all about Free Stuff. Then you vote for them and you reap the world wind as often times because of careless spending since it’s not their money. 1/3 pays all the Civil Servants and the few amenities that Government provides.

    How long do you think that Parasitical Entity can feed off we the people? It depends on the Organism as to how much it feeds. The real aim of Full Blown Socialism is the Control and Extraction of the Wealth of the People, every aspect of what others own. It’s aims at Complete Authoritarianism in Government.

    No individual is to own anything. Everything belongs to the state. All properties, utilities, industries, and persons are to be owned by the entire body politic, represented by the government. A good example is what is happening in Venezuela or Barbados… do you own your house? Even after we are deceased our inheritors continue paying Taxes.

    What Ripple effects are we witnessing of such Control? The Parasites who Rule fatten themselves while everyone else literally starve. The have sucked so much out of their people in Barbados that the host is dying.

    “The Problem with Socialist is that they eventually run out of others people’s money”. Margaret Thatcher.

    We cannot trust a System that is feeding off the people. Socialism is simply Governmental ownership and management of the essential means for the production and distribution of goods. That is why Government should be limited to what we the people deem absolutely necessary. Government is supposed to represent and protect the people not Leech off them”! They are supposed to be the People’s Representatives however they have made themselves the people’s Masters and thus the people have become Serfs! We Exist to Feed their Edicts!!


  • About 40000 Venezuelans have moved to Trinidad, many of them working in prostitution. Trafficking is huge.

    There is no doubt in my mind whatever that both black governments given mandates by the majority population for the last 50 years…..would definitely be deserving of being taken down by the very same minorities they enabled, colluded with and accepted bribes from and gave a greenlight to commit crimes against and disenfranchise their own people for decades, this is indeed a defining moment….it would be monumental in scope, one for the history books.

    Ah cant even defend either government because of what they have done to the majority population, to the island. ….their treachery can never be forgiven.


  • Talking Loud Saying Nothing

    @ June,

    Nothing wrong with socialism. If i had a choice between living in a socially progressive Europe or a capitalist enclave such as the USA then i would always select Europe over The States. The last time i went to The States i visited Boston. The centre of Boston was stunning. However once you breached the outskirts of the city it was apparent that the infrastructure of the city was shot to pieces.

    June, you need to define what you mean by socialism. We in Europe live in what is loosely termed a mixed economy. Whereby, our governments provide a reasonable high level of public services and a first class infrastructure to her people. Private companies have piggy-banked on the back of this first class service provided by the state. Who provided the transport infrastructure which enables private sector workers to be shuttled to their place of work? Who provides the training and the facilities for those same private sector workers who may fall ill. Should i were to fall ill then i would be treated by the state.

    Currently, things may be extremely bad in Barbados but can you imagine how much worse it would be if we were to adopt your narrow and twisted politics and to allow our country to be governed by those individuals who share your lunatic, capitalistic fruitcake views?

    Your believes are quaint and at the same time sadly ridiculous:

    “Socialism is Economic Cannibalism. It is a slow process of Rot, Understand that the plan is to “CONTROL AND RULE BY WAY OF THE EXTRACTION OF THE PEOPLES WEALTH WHILE ENCROACHING ON THEIR FREEDOM THROUGH-BURDENSOME REGULATIONS”.

    Take a good look at the two part documentary below. You will be very surprised.

    Someone just shot this facebook post over to me.

    “Expose everything that happens on the island, never forget that Barbados used to be the transhipment point and clearing house for African slaves, most descendants do not even know from which African country their African ancestors originated.

    Many minorities still get away with practicing segregation and apartheid against the majority population for decades, it must be exposed at every opportunity expose racism, do not stay silent, there is a worldwide movement in progress to expose these evil practices and the people who enable such cruel, wicked savagery.

    Silence is acceptance.”


  • @Talking Loud Saying Nothing August 25, 2017 at 3:03 PM

    Sound observations. I too often marvel at the anglo-american neo liberal approach to society. Americans often scoff at ‘socialist’ Europe, especially the Nordics but the general quality and standard of life is very high and even the run-of-the-mill blue collar worker can afford to live in a decent house, have good health care, etc.

    If one were to compare the standard of living between say the lower quartile of income earners in the US and one of the northern European countries, the US earners would fail miserably by comparison.

    Naime is simply parroting (out dated) neo liberal talking points. Anachronistic at best, demented at worse.

    In the real world, this is what happens to corrupt executives and their collusion with corrupt prime ministers and government officials…they go to prison for theft, bribery, embezzlement and contributing to the decay of society.

    “The trial, part of a bigger corruption scandal that brought down South Korea’s president, transfixed the nation as it shone a spotlight on the close ties between chaebol business groups and the political elite. Prosecutors had sought 12 years in prison for the 49-year-old billionaire, whose lawyer said he would appeal. Any sentence of more than 3 years can’t be suspended.

    The judgment reflects a greater willingness by South Korea to break the ties between the wealthy and those in power. In the past, a long list of business leaders, including Lee’s father, were convicted for corrupt behavior only to be let off easy. The younger Lee is unlikely to enjoy such leniency. The Samsung scion, who golfed and traveled extensively to foster ties with tech executives, mostly kept a blank expression as the verdict was read.

    “It’s shocking that the disease of political-business collusion between Korea’s most powerful person, the president, and a conglomerate is not a thing of the past but still continuing,” presiding judge Kim Jin-dong told the Seoul Central District Court on Friday. “It will be hard to recover from this loss of faith. The fact that the defendants were executives who represented Samsung Group makes the influence on the society and economy hugely adverse.”

    Lee was convicted of all five charges he faced, including allegations of embezzlement.”


  • An Economics Professor at a university made a statement that he had never failed a single student before but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

    The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A….

    After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

    As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

    The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
    When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

    As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

    To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

    You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

    What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
    The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
    You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
    When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

    By Monday those ten knuckle dragging cave dwellers will be out of a job, the world is serious about exposing these animals and driving them out of the society into the deepest darkest corners of the earth….back to their stinking caves.


  • Socialism is the Big Lie of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. While it promised Prosperity, Equality, and Security, it delivered Poverty, Misery, and Tyranny.

    A people who depend upon a government managing personal needs, personal benefits, and personal responsibilities are owned by the whole instead of being a society of self-owned individuals. The law in a free society is only used for the protection of person and property—you cannot use the law as a tool for force and theft of property and labor, NO MATTER HOW GOOD THE INTENTION—this economic ideology of a “fair share” of anther’s labor is the foundation for Fascism, Nazism, Socialism, and Communism”. Names only change to suit the times. I think you may understand this as the Nucleus for world Governance.

    So many do not understand the System that is the Root Cause of our Ills an Always seem to get carried away in the issues. Socialism the Godless Ideology which plagues us all masquerading as Charitable Benevolence! True Charity Does not come by Theft! How long do you think that Parasitical Entity can feed off we the people? It depends on the Organism as to how much it feeds. The real aim of Full Blown Socialism is to control every aspect of what others own. Their aim at Complete Paternalism in Government, Venezuela is a Perfect Example!

    The only Choice we are Faced with at the Voting Box is which Party is going to suck the Host a little less. Socialism Feeds On Capitalism…It is a Parasite and because they feed on Capitalism people Game the System and Create Crony Capitalism where Governments Create Winners & losers! Such as Granting Duty Free Concessions to Big Businesses while not allowing the same for Small Business an opportunity to Grow, such as the Chicken Industry with 200% Duty on Poultry so the common man ends up paying three times the cost of imported Poultry…that is your Social Programs at work for you. You want more Examples?

    Cronyism is where big Business and Governments Collude(Tax Breaks) to give Special Favours to those entities to the exclusion of the ordinary person. Crony Capitalism is an attempt to label the System of Free Enterprise by regulating it until it is no longer Free.

    “Charity is No Part of the Legislative Duty of the Government.”

    The Core of Socialism in the Central Characteristic is the Concentration of power to forcibly achieve one or more (or usually all) of these purposes: Central Planning of the economy, Government Ownership of Property, and the Redistribution of Wealth. What makes Socialism Socialism is the fact that you Can’t Opt Out, Government, whether big or small, is the only entity in society that possesses a legal monopoly over the use of force.

    The more force it initiates against people, the more it Subordinates the choices of the Ruled to the Whims of their Rulers — that is, the more Socialist it becomes.

    A reader may object to this description by insisting that to “Socialize” something is to simply “Share” it and “Help People” in the process, but that’s baby talk. It’s How You Do it that Defines the System. Do it through the use of force, and its Socialism. Do it through Persuasion, Free Will, and respect for Property Rights, and it’s something else entirely.

    “I am convinced that political and economic policies involving the forced redistribution of wealth via government intervention are neither right nor safe.

    Such policies are both unethical and ineffective…. On the surface it would seem that socialists are on God’s side. Unfortunately, their programs and their means foster greater poverty even though their hearts remain loyal to eliminating poverty.

    The tragic fallacy that invades socialist thinking is that there is a necessary, causal connection between the wealth of the wealthy and the poverty of the poor. Socialists assume that one man’s wealth is based on another man’s poverty; therefore, to stop poverty and help the poor man, we must have socialism.

    To Sproul’s comment I would add this addendum: sometimes a person becomes wealthy wholly or in part because of his political connections.

    He secures special favors or subsidies from government, or uses government to disable his competitors.

    No consistently logical thinker who favors liberty and property rights, whether he’s Christian or not, supports such practices. They are forms of theft, and their source is political power — the very debilitating thing that progressives and socialists advocate more of.

    Legitimate wealth is derived voluntarily. It comes from the creation of value and mutually beneficial, voluntary exchange.

    It does not spring from political power that redistributes in reverse, taking from the poor and giving to the rich.

    Economic entrepreneurs are a boon to society; Political Entrepreneurs are Another Animal Entirely”.


  • June,
    I see what you are arguing against, not for.

    In the old Soviet Union there was a joke – In the West man exploits man, in the Soviet Union it’s the other way round.

    No one can take your pride or get up and go away, you have to throw them away.
    It’s really convenient to have someone or something to blame but it solves nothing.

    On many occasions I have had lazy unachieving people remark on the poor performances of the WI cricket team – I agree but leave unsaid “Yes, look in the mirror to see why”.


  • How is Free Enterprise “Capitalism” better than Socialism?

    The essential nature of Free Enterprise Capitalism is social harmony through the pursuit of self-interest. Under Capitalism, the individual’s pursuit of his own economic self-interest simultaneously benefits the economic self-interests of all others. In allowing each individual to act unhampered by government regulations, Capitalism causes wealth to be created in the most efficient manner possible which ultimately raises the standard of living, increases the economic opportunities, and makes available an ever growing supply of products for everyone. The free-market operates in such a way so that as one man creates more wealth for himself, he simultaneously creates more wealth and opportunities for everyone else, which means that as the rich become richer, the poor become richer. It must be understood that Capitalism serves the economic self-interests of all, including the Non-Capitalists. “And even if we were all magically made equal in wealth tonight, we’d be unequal in the morning because some of us would spend it and some of us would save it”. Lawrence Reed.

    Contrary to widely held beliefs, capitalism is not a system which exploits a large portion of society for the sake of a small minority of wealthy capitalists. Ironically, it is actually socialism that causes the systematic exploitation of labor. Since the socialist state holds a universal monopoly on labor and production, no economic incentive exists for the socialist state to provide anything more than minimum physical subsistence for the workers except to perhaps prevent riots or revolutions. Exploitation is inherent to the nature of socialism because individuals cannot live for their own sake, rather, they exist merely as means to whatever ends the socialist rulers—the self-proclaimed spokesman of “society,” may have in mind.”

    Bringing this reality of full Blown Socialism close to home are our neighbors in Venezuela and the ills they are suffering with corruption on every level by their elected officials. The Government controls the largest known oil reserves in the world, yet the Country is Broke. They also control through compulsory means the food distribution system, yet there is little food and people scavenge to survive. There is diminutive water and energy shortages, not even to speak about basic commodities and medical supplies and needed medications! Yet they blame America for all their tribulations, it is never their fault! Want to guess who the richest person in Venezuela is! None other than Hugo Chavez’s daughter.

  • Capitalism is not one system. It is many systems since there are many different types of capitalism.

    However, there can be no doubt that some forms of capitalism enrich a few families and keep many other hard working families deprived of even the bare necessities of life.

    Consider companies like Walmart and Amazon in the United States.All of the members of the Walton family, including women who never raised a finger to help the company, are fabulously rich. As is Jeff Bezos. But most of the employees of Walmart and Amazon are paid very low wages and receive few health benefits. Many of these workers literally cannot afford to get sick. That is a shame.

  • @curious August 24, 2017 at 6:57 PM “Lets just hang two of them and you would see that the shooting to kill stops because they are mostly cowards.”

    That’s not true.

    The death penalty does not work by “hanging 2 of them” as Trinidad discovered when they got up one morning and hanged 9 men, and then refused or did not have the stomach to hang all of the others. The death penalty only works if it is applied consistently, that is if Barbados is willing to execute on a consistent basis, that is to briskly execute every convicted murderer and to continue to do this for all murders, even when the murderer is our son/godson/school mate, church brother etc.

    The principal question is: Are we willing to do this? All the time? And for ever?


  • @curious August 24, 2017 at 6:50 PM “The Police force will have a problem recruiting young Barbadian men because a lot of them cannot pass the medical test which involved Marijuana use. The fact that you smoke marijuana when you were younger does not mean you cannot stop and change and be a good honest citizen. The past three US Presidents all admitted to using drugs when they were younger.”

    Marijuana only shows up in tests for about 90 days since the last use. So anybody who applies to the police force and does not have the discipline or common sense to hold offa de evil weed for 9 days before applying is a real, real ill disciplined fellow, or completely lacking in common sense.

    And ill disciplined or foolish people have no business being in the police force.

    In other words if you smoked herb from aged 14 to 24 and applies to join force at age 26 the herb will NOT show up in the test 2 years after the last use.

    It is Written that the Heavens and even God Weeps for such because he has given man his Agency and his Light Dwells within and influences their Conscience influencing them to Choose Right over Wrong. By a manifestation in our hearts we Clearly know the Difference between Good and Evil.

    “Capitalism is not one system. It is many systems since there are many different types of capitalism”.

    Chad thank you for sharing your thoughts… We Need to Recognize the Difference between Free Market Capitalism and Crony Capitalism (SOCIALISM)… the Latter I believe is what you described… Please Bear with me…

    How is Free Enterprise “Capitalism” better than Socialism?

    The essential nature of Free Enterprise Capitalism is social harmony through the pursuit of self-interest. Under Capitalism, the individual’s pursuit of his own economic self-interest simultaneously benefits the economic self-interests of all others. In allowing each individual to act unhampered by government regulations, Capitalism causes wealth to be created in the most efficient manner possible which ultimately raises the standard of living, increases the economic opportunities, and makes available an ever growing supply of products for everyone. The free-market operates in such a way so that as one man creates more wealth for himself, he simultaneously creates more wealth and opportunities for everyone else, which means that as the rich become richer, the poor become richer. It must be understood that Capitalism serves the economic self-interests of all, including the Non-Capitalists. “And even if we were all magically made equal in wealth tonight, we’d be unequal in the morning because some of us would spend it and some of us would save it”. Lawrence Reed.

    Contrary to widely held beliefs, capitalism is not a system which exploits a large portion of society for the sake of a small minority of wealthy capitalists. Ironically, it is actually Socialism that causes the systematic exploitation of labor. Since the socialist state holds a universal monopoly on labor and production, no economic incentive exists for the Socialist state to provide anything more than minimum physical subsistence for the workers except to perhaps prevent riots or revolutions. Exploitation is inherent to the nature of socialism because individuals cannot live for their own sake, rather, they exist merely as means to whatever ends the socialist rulers—the self-proclaimed spokesman of “society,” may have in mind.”

    Many people have trouble accepting that Capitalism is a just system because of the existence of economic inequality. It is observed that famous celebrities and sports stars have very large incomes for work that is perceived as trivial, and that many hard working people make incomes which pale in comparison for jobs that are perceived to be a greater benefit to society. What people must realize is that it is perfectly just for a superstar (like Rihanna), even if they have little or no education, to make a hundred times the income of a scientist who has a Ph.D. and works much longer and strenuous hours. Why? Because they create enormous profits through ticket sales and product endorsements, whereas the scientist generates very little revenue through his research. That is, each of them deserves what they earn, and what they earn is the result of how much wealth each of them creates (Incidentally, this is not to say that the Celebs and Artiste are morally superior to the scientist because they are wealthier). Since each man has the right to the product of his labor, it is completely just for the disparity in incomes to exist, and the only injustice to occur would be or the government to take money from the athlete and give it to those who supposedly deserve it on the basis of their “need.”

    What is a Capitalist?

    From a purely economic point of view, a capitalist is a person who buys in order to sell for profit. However, the productive role that capitalists and businessman serve cannot be overstated.

    Far from being exploiters, the true function of capitalists and businessmen “… is to raise the productivity, and thus the real wages, of manual labor by means of creating, coordinating, and improving the efficiency of the division of labor.” By continuously improving the efficiency of labor, Capitalists and businessmen are responsible for raising wages and creating employment which serve to raise the standard of living of everyone. Furthermore, by funding research and capital investments, corporations and capitalists make possible all of the modern day conveniences, from laser surgery to orchestra halls that most people take for granted every day. In fact, since capitalists make available so much life-saving and labor-saving technology to so many people, they should be regarded as some of mankind’s greatest benefactors. A few capitalists and businessmen have done more to help mankind live a more enjoyable life in a more fundamental sense, a capitalist is anyone (from a janitor to a millionaire) who lives solely by his own effort and who respects the rights of others. The best symbol of a capitalist is the trader. That is, the man or woman who only deals with other people on a voluntary basis. A capitalist is neither an “exploiter” nor necessarily a “greedy” individual.

  • June,
    You must be aware of the intellectual climate you are working in. Not very long ago a senior political science (is there such a thing?) a lecturer at UWI, writing in the Nation, screamed that capitalism was capitalism. That such buffoonery could hold a senior position in our only university was not only embarrassing, but insulting.
    On another occasion, a former governor of the central bank and one of his former colleagues, now a university professor, wrote an academic paper on the financial crisis and not a single footnote or reference was post 2008 – they were writing about eight years after the greatest global financial collapse in modern history. Not a word was said, not a comment made, in our media or on the more aggressive social media forums.
    And, on BU recently, there was a discussion on a so-called secondary retail mortgage market, and those of us suspicious of the claim, were referred to a 1995 paper, incorrectly referencing a secondary mortgage market (when in fact referring to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae).
    When it was politely pointed out that that is not what is called in modern macro-economics a secondary market, that modern retail mortgage secondary markets are off-balance sheets SPVs, the aggression and abuse came out – joined by the five or six resident verbal thugs – and not a single one sought to explain what they meant. It is the circulatory mediocrity and ignorance I talk about.
    Then there is the smear: one idiot claims to know me well; he (I assume it is a he), claimed I left school in 1963, before he was born, he said. Let us assume he was born in 1964, and entered infant school five years later, 1969, putting me in his reasoning at age 22 or 23; we could also assume he had his most important school years in the 1970s and 80s, yet he knew me well.
    This is slowly becoming the reputation of BU, the anonymous nonsense that masquerades as ‘real’ facts.
    @June these are largely pensioners in the ante-chamber of death; who have lived unfulfilled lives; people who on reflection realise their entire lives have been that of failures and are now bitter, envious and twisted.
    I may not agree with everything you say, but will defend to death your right to say it.


  • Hal I Agree with what you have said Please continue to raise your voice here… We are all getting on in Years and we should share our Wisdom that we’ve gleaned through the Crucible of our Experiences otherwise it will be lost and those coming after us will make grave mistakes that could have been avoided.

    That is why the OPPOSITION is So Strong to Shut Down The Conversation and Erase History. They are The True Segregationist!

    Hal…you are arguably the most stupid black man alive to date, everyone has a right to say what they are saying on BU, they have a right to say anything the Blogmaster accepts.

    …including the “thugs” to whom you refer, who put you in your house negro place when you talk nonsense and try to spread lies and misinformation on BU…even you the resident BU idiot have a right to say what you say….so what’s your point.

    Can’t you think of a creative way to express what a greatful little house negro emigre out of London ya are….besides stating the obvious.

    Where is GP…he called this, now the indian crooks on the island with their fraud medical schools are calling each other frauds…lol…I did not make this

    “Offshore medical school accused of poaching students
    Added by Ryan Gilkes on August 26, 2017.
    Saved under Local News
    A battle appears to be under way between two offshore medical schools operating here, with both the Washington University of Barbados (WUB), which recently saw several students requesting transfers, and the American University of Barbados (AUB) accusing each other of engaging in underhand practices.

    A person claiming to be a AUB student has come forward suggesting that the Wildey, St Michael-based institution had set about to poach WUB students by any means necessary.

    This comes after reports earlier this month that WUB was heavily criticized by some of its students over what they deemed to be false promises and mistreatment by the university.

    In an email, the writer had claimed that the students, who are said to be mainly from India, were mistreated, harassed and were given false promises before they embarked on the journey here to study medicine.

    The list of grievances included inadequate classroom furniture and equipment, a lack of air-conditioning, improper ventilation, poor quality food, a lack of study materials and, unlike traditional universities, no proper campus, with WUB operating from the Hibiscus wing of the Casa Grande Hotel at Oldbury, St Philip.

    Additionally, they suggested that that the school had not completed its mandatory Barbados Accreditation Council registration.

    In the latest development, a signed document has surfaced with the subject, Slander of Washington University of Barbados by Directors of American University of Barbados.

    It purports to come from a second-year medical student at AUB, Zeel Rakeshkumar, who contended that UAB had employed a Barbadian intermediary to influence WUB students to switch schools.

    “I am aware, and I know that [this intermediary] then started going to Washington University of Barbados to influence the students there. He started offering lower fee packages to join AUB as compared to WUB so that students can convince their parents easily for the transfer to this University

    “AUB students were asked to get students from Washington University and the students who facilitate a transfer to AUB, they will be credited with US$1,000. I was even asked by a director for a small presentation specially arranged by American University of Barbados for Washing University’s students. I was even told to talk to WUB’s students and their parents to convince them to make the University transfer,” the person claimed in the four-page document seen by Barbados TODAY.

    The writer also claimed that AUB students were asked to spread false information about WUB, including “a fake video which from time to time has been posted on YouTube, Facebook and WhatsApp”.

    That video, which is believed to have been filmed by a student with a mobile phone, placed WUB under the microscope.

    In it, the university’s Dean Dr Ram Prasad Upreti expressed disdain for the campus. In an emotional speech during which he received raucous applause, and in which he threatened to call Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, the unions, the media and even the police to intervene, Upreti all but dismissed WUB as a legitimate medical school.

    WUB, which accepted its first batch of students in April this year, has faced questions about its legitimacy, as 15 of the 80 foreign students have indicated a desire to leave.

    Meantime, Director Deoraj Delchand meantime told Barbados TODAY that though he is unaware of the document from Barot, it contained some serious allegations, which, if true, warranted an investigation by the relevant authorities.

    “Although these things have popped up I have not paid them much attention. If the facts are there, then I would like the relevant authorities to deal with this. Personally, I have a lot of suspicions that there is a lot going on but to actually say [what is outlined in the letter] is the case definitively at this point in time I’m not very sure of that, but if it is, I would like to see something done about it.

    All these universities coming here to Barbados is good for the country. I would like to see plenty more schools if I had my way. I think there is the scope. There is a huge demand for medical professionals the world over so all of us can survive. But what I would like to see is us being professional. Although it is competitive we can have more than one university . . . it must be done the right way.”

    In a response this afternoon, an AUB official who gave his name only as Ravi, strongly denied that the campus was involved in any form of student poaching, and that an investigation would be launched to determine if the letter writer was a student, or an imposter posing as a student.

    He also told Barbados TODAY that there were plans to hold a press conference next Wednesday at the Ministry of Health at which time the students, who were allegedly poached, will have a chance to tell their side of the story.”

    Are those the fraud medical schools Ronald jackass Jones, Michael clown Lashley and Carson yardfowl Cadogan been boasting everywhere about…. how great they are…lol

    Bushman.., where are you


  • @7:14… Hal, I am truly amazed at some of your rants …why should you shed one bead of concern about what the anony-mice say about you … particularly when it relates to some epheramal, likely specious and rather dated recollection of your school ‘dazes’.

    You who has traversed the freaking world and interacted with newsmakers of repute and also those petty types who sought reknown now choose to focus on the insignificant rather than just share your knowledge and react to practical critiques…. what a mixed message you send.

    In feigned – it seems – jouno bravado you will protect Naime’s ability to spew diatribes devoid of balanced reasoning but yet decry and seek to detonate those who spew other diatribes of irrelevant BS…. oh what a tangled web you so hypocrtically extoll.

    Oh, incidentally I thought your remarks on secondary markets were excellent ….much more so than what was otherwise being presented. Your analysis went to the core of the issue … wide (global) scope of market makers to make such a program truly viable and of course the importance of a strong regulatory framework.

    Although quite separate, I yet find it impractical that a region with such insignificant shares and related trading markets would seek to entrap itself in the game of repackaged real estate mortgage securities…. it looked like a dangerous game when business crashed in ’08 and still does… well, for those left holding the bag of course!

  • Pedantic,
    I am not concern about nonsense, I was simply pointing out to @June she should not let them put her off. A difference of opinion or belief does not mean she is the enemy.
    As to the issue of secondary markets, I was just sharing knowledge. Both the argument in BU and the academic paper on which it was based got it wrong. As to defending other’s ideas, but was paraphrasing an Enlightenment view from a Frenchman.
    What I would like to see on BU is the sharing of ideas, and not insults.


  • Well Well & Consequences Observing Blogger.

    You insult those who oppose your idea of whom should be labeled a thief in Barbados, or even if they are thieves,.. Hal

    Even going so far as calling for slander charges against commenters…..who has an opposing opinion to yours….on the topic.

    Talk about pot v. kettle..

    A mixed up, confused and quite unenviable state to be in and shows a total lack of enlightenment, despite claims of being educated and a journalist.


  • WW&C shut to f..k up you are so overbearing and annoying maybe stuffing a sock in your mouth would slow the flow of your uncontrollable diarrhea of the mouth. Idiot


  • Agreed Hal!

    Raise the Bar of the Discussion…Edify, Illuminate Not Pull the Discussion Down into Dark and Destructive Emotional Debate… Emotions are Good you cannot live without Emotions but Unbridled Emotion has No Direction and No Guidance. Reason and Thought, gives Direction to our Emotions. Thought Alone although might be rewarding, without Emotion is Sterile.

    As a Real Life Example, Generally Speaking Women are more Emotional and Men are More Intellectual. But we could not Experience Happiness but by the marrying of the Two. Emotion and Thought can produce Happy Thoughtful People!

    As Individuals don’t we all want to be Happy? As a man and a woman together don’t we want to be Happy, as a Family together don’t we want to be happy, as a Community don’t we want to be happy? As A Nation don’t we want to be happy?

    Isn’t the Purpose of Life to Strive to be Happy?

    The Scriptures says the Purpose of Life is to have Joy and to have it Abundantly!

  • Here is a Thought from a Close Family Friend that Continues my Vein of Capitalism/Socialism…

    “With these fundamentals now on the table, we may now keenly understand what American Spectator’s author J.T. Young succinctly points out:

    “The left’s inherent challenge is justifying their claim to what others own.” Hence they launch divisive disinformation campaigns pitting one against another, calling whatever they can’t control ‘unfair and undemocratic.’

    (See: Understanding the Left’s Demands on What Others Own, T.J. Young, The American Spectator, March 2013).

    “And they do this by hypocritically indicting Free Enterprise (Capitalism) or laissez faire economics as criminal. They claim that such a system is entirely unfair, wherein Government interference is kept at a minimum and free trade is generally allowed to be unregulated between individuals. They accuse such unrestrained Liberty as being the means by which the wholesale “theft” from society takes place. This gives them reason to limit personal freedom and aggressively denigrate the Liberties of personal initiative and creativity.

    Under the rubric of “You didn’t build that!” they feverishly claim that Society creates wealth, not individuals. Persisting in their lie, they insist that entrepreneurs are just those that steal or pirate the wealth rightfully belonging to others. According to their entrenched purview, everything that individuals may create or produce only occurs because of the governing that has made the means of wealth possible. They erroneously claim that every activity yielding a prosperous outcome belongs rightfully to everybody else.

    And thus their redistribution of wealth becomes the final arbitrator of fairness. In their view, no matter the individual endeavour, means or investment applied no one has the right to ownership of anything that somebody else does not have. Thus according to this half-baked paradigm, Marxist-Utopists hate Free-Enterprise Capitalism because it violates their sense of entitlement (‘fairness’ to them), accusing Capitalists of the three infamies they find most unforgiving. Namely, (1) the inequality of personal outcome which is derived from the interaction between (2) Free-Market economics and (3) personal independence, all of which they claim invariably leads to the greed and self-contentedness of materialism.

    Thus they invalidate the most fundamental rights of man, the rights of ownership and personal property.” Correctly countering this selective perception, Russian born novelist Ayn Rand argued that, “Just as man can’t exist without his body, so no rights can exist without the right to translate one’s rights into reality — to think, to work and to keep the results — which means: the right of property…. Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights [and the Bill of Rights particularly] is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities…and the smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights, cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.” (See: The Fountainhead, Ayn Rand, 1943)

    Add to that under reporting by victims and under recording by police, some victims dont recognize what happens to them as crimes and too many police officers in Barbados and the Caribbean dont recognize what happens to victims who make reports as criminal acts against the victims. …

    …..lack of information, lack of education.

    “On average, 47% of crimes went unreported to the police in the Caribbean. Meaning that for every ten crimes that happen, we only “know” of five. This has enormous policy implications. The highest reporting rates were found in New Providence, The Bahamas and the lowest in Kingston, Jamaica (39%) and Bridgetown, Barbados (43%). Reporting is close to the international average (49%), significantly higher than in Latin American capital cities (35%) for all five crimes examined here (car theft, burglary, robbery, theft of personal property, and assaults and threats).[2]

    Only 46% of crimes against businesses were reported to the police, with lower reporting in Belize (20%) and Barbados (24%).”

  • Well Well & Consequences Observing Blogger.

    There is this dude from UK now missing in Barbados, all types of info is swirling, we have to ask, are the police investigating and taking any of this seriously, following up, given the other party now being looked at with suspicion.

    That is what ya always have to ask with bajan cops, they never seem to be able to solve crimes that are well planned and premeditated. …they can only solve crimes when the culprits are standing there with the weapon dripping blood in their hands or if someone gives them a name and they can beat out a confession.

    This is what got the Crazy Criminal now trolling BU up in arms…those who know are about to talk, nothing can stop it,….Dottin knows who all the major distributors are in Barbados.

  • Well Well @ Consequences Observing Blogger

    Angela Yardfowl….since ya now the spokesperson for criminal minorities, how, how, how will all the whining and complaining prevent the inevitable exposure now on warp speed which will soon arrive like a Japanese bullet train…lol


  • Well Well & Consequences Observing Blogger.

    Carson & Angela Yardfowl….spokespersons for the criminal minorities on the island know all about this….the politicians and ministers who protect criminals.

    “UPP charges that politicians protecting criminals
    Added by Neville Clarke on August 28, 2017.
    Saved under Crime, Local News, Politics
    United Progressive Party (UPP) leader Lynette Eastmond has charged that some politicians are protecting people involved in crime, making them untouchable.

    And she has called on Barbadians to reject that kind of behaviour and to take a stand against the criminal elements in society.

    “Apparently, it seems to be an open secret in Barbados now that there are some people who can commit crimes and never spend a day in jail. But someone with a five bag of weed could get thrown into jail,” she charged at a political meeting in St Barnabas, St Michael last night.

    “There are some of us who never cared about injustice in Barbados once it did not affect us and once it did not affect our family. We did not care that a telephone call could be made and a police officer could be told, ‘you see that man that you just pick up across the block, go and put him exactly on the block where you took him from’. That kind of thing happens in Barbados.”

    While not pointing fingers in any specific direction, the UPP leader, who served as Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs in former Prime Minister Owen Arthur’s Barbados Labour Party (BLP) administration, suggested that corruption was common even during the BLP reign”

    And this….

    “UPP: Get to the source of illegal guns
    Added by Neville Clarke on August 28, 2017.
    Saved under Crime, Local News
    The United Progressive Party (UPP) is advising the Freundel Stuart administration to get to the source of the illegal weapons that make their way onto the streets of Barbados if it wants to get a grip on gun crimes.

    The new party’s spokesman on Home Affairs Maria Phillips said at a meeting last night at St Barnabas Heights, St Michael, the authorities had adopted a piecemeal approach in dealing with gun violence, and had failed to focus on the source of the guns and the means by which they enter the country.

    “Why is no one addressing the source of where these guns are coming from? We do not produce ammunition here in Barbados. We have heard all kinds of solutions to this problem. We have heard of the necessity of the Barbados Defence Force to get involved. We have heard of the necessity of the communities to get involved. We have heard of the necessity of the police to come up with community policing. Where are the guns coming from? Who is bringing them in? These are the issues that we have to discuss,” she said.”


  • I expect that many of the guns come from the United States, one of the world’s major manufacturers of guns, bullets etc.

    I say arrest the guns and deport them to the United States.
