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.

  1. We have become to soft on criminals. Justice needs to be dispense more swiftly. Harsher punishments and capital punishment must be done. Both the current and former AG is too soft on criminals talking 2nd chance crap and we mustnt do this and that because Barbados is too small a society. What a load of crap! Where is the 2nd chance for the person lying in a grave! Greater scrutiny of our ports of entries should be done with increased searches and cameras everywhere. I listened to the program and the guest Mr X blamed lack of education and the lack of jobs. Then I remember two male callers, both in construction business, who took on two unemployed guys to work them after their moms begged them too. Both the guys quit within two days citing the work is too ‘hard’. Since when work is easy? Go to school and work hard and get some certificates or skills. Life would be much easier for you.


  2. David:

    People like Ellis have been saying the same kinds of things for 2 generations now.

    In fact, we always tend to feel the next generation will be worse than the present, and so on

    None of this self-righteous talk has made any difference to the general arc.

    To us, that arc in lawlessness seems highly correlated to what has/is happened/happening among the elites in religion, economy, business and elsewhere.


    • @Pacha

      Away from the personalities the average murder number has crept to the 20s in the 2000s up from single digit in the 90s. The trendline is ominous for a small society like Barbados. There is a fault line we have not been able to fix. Note it straddles both political parties.


  3. Take the army go through a village including bring metal detectors gun found 20 years no time off it will stop


  4. Kevin,
    Who are the criminals? The shootings are just a symptom of the decaying society, not the cause. The society is in a state of meltdown because of the lack of moral leadership, from top to bottom.

  5. Bajan Free Party/CUP-PCP.Violet Beckles Plantation Deeds from 1926-2017 land tax bills and no Deeds,BLPand DLP Massive land Fruad and PONZI on said:

    Most on this blog have been covering up truth and now the truth is at your doors ready to kill who ever when ever they want, The DBLP government you all love so much will kill more by elections, Wake up fools People are doing the wrongs and no Rule of Law,
    Keep supporting Crooks, Liars and Scumbags now doing Murder, Vote them All OUT


  6. What exactly does it take for a brass bowl to recognise that they are on the wrong course?

    If everything is getting worse….
    If, despite improved technology, communication, transport and finances, we are deeper in debt, in shit, own less national assets, our infrastructure falling apart …and our leaders looking like ‘Uncle Toms’… kowtowing to a few white shadows…..

    What the hell more are we waiting for now…?
    The fat lady to sing…?

    When Arthur was wasting resources on CSME we should have sat up….
    When the DLP built that shiite at the Garrison,…THAT ALONE should have been the final straw… but, like the Egyptian brass bowls of old, it seems that we will only smell the coffee when the firstborn in every household is culled….

    Brass bowlery is not about being ignorant … it is about CHOOSING to be ignorant.


  7. Mr Blogmaster, surely the society is decaying but as the Pacha blogger and @Hal noted this is a fundamental disease throughout our nation’s body… the increase in murders is merely the signs and symptoms.

    That said, it is also surely useful to have the dragnets for illegal guns periodically… but to speak of the low level criminals with the ‘ no second chance’ rhetoric is simplistic …. didn’t the nation’s leader speak glowingly of the second chance (and clearly that was NOT just his second ‘get out of jail free’ card ) due to the speaker.

    We cannot have politicians leading us and displaying the behaviour of a bully by tweets or when he deigns to speak to the press; by blatantly lying in public on a regular basis whether it’s about contracts he signed but asserts he knew nothing about or rehashing his own words disingenously.

    Frankly, that toxic illness may not be new but with modern technology we are now alerted to the toxicity very quickly … so if the big boys & girls can enjoy themselves despite that debris causing the decay….why should we expect the lil boys n girls to act with decorum.

    No second chance they say….so htf do we perpetuate this ridiculous political merry-go-around…

    …Causation & symptoms, as the man said, let’s get them straight!


    • @Dee Word

      Have you noted the headline of this blog?

      Mr Blogmaster, surely the society is decaying but as the Pacha blogger and @Hal noted this is a fundamental disease throughout our nation’s body… the increase in murders is merely the signs and symptoms.


  8. @ Dribbler
    …so what if the immoral and disgraceful behaviour at the top of society is ALSO just a symptom?
    What if those doing shiite at the top just HAPPEN to find themselves at the top – for the time being?
    …and what if practically ANY COMBINATION of brass bowls, finding themselves with the same opportunities to do shiite …. CAN BE GUARANTEED to do the same, similar …or even stinker shiite?

    What then…?

    Are you then prepared to agree that we have a MUCH more fundamental problem?
    … that perhaps it goes to the core of our very being?
    … that perhaps there are forces at play which we REFUSE to contemplate…?

    …or are you one of those fellas who will stick with your core principles – even when the sky is falling?


  9. as long as the black governments and black police force continue to look the other way and refuse to stop the importers, the money launderers, the real criminals they know are behind the gun and drug trafficking, resign yourseves to more murders and black bodies….the dots have not only been connected, the players are well known and have been identified

    Pacha….ask June Naime about this, see if she has an answer for you….she has been banned from certain online forums. ..because the syrians and her family are well known for this….

    “The Syrian & Lebanese throughout the Caribbean are the MAJOR PLAYERS in the illegal drug trade…. And they have the politicians eating out of the palms of their hands… They wash their dirty earnings through legit companies – e.g. major supermarkets and small indian, syrian stores up and dnwn swan street in Barbados (Sapga Owned), (?Sapga Owned),, etc… Traditionally their ancestors controlled the drug routs into Europe which passed through northern Syria and Lebanon… And they have established an elaborate network throughout the Caribbean including Columbia… They are what is referred to as MARKET DOMINANT MINORITIES…”

    indians, whites and syrians have been trafficking drugs and guns in and out of Barbados for decades on a very large scale, hundreds of millions of dollars worth….and its only BLACK people being charged and going to prison for it…

    the police know its primarily syrians, indians and whites trafficking at that international, regional and local level, the government ministers and police need to stop enabling them and taking their bribes or their names will be called as well.

    the names of three well known businesses are on that drug trafficking list, I chose not to post those names, major supermarket in warrens, well known cloth selling syrian store on swan street,an insurance company……as long as you launder the proceeds of drug and gun trafficking, you are invoved, as long as you know about, take bribes to look the other way, you are involved

    who owns guardian general on the island…i was trying to find out.

    We wish you would adopt such an approach when dealing with perpetrators of white collar crime too.

    Shouldn’t such swift justice apply to people who are members and financial backers of your much beloved DLP?

    And what happens when a shipment of illegal drugs is interdicted because of increased scrutiny like the recent one at the seaport but no one is charged for its importation?

    Come on, man Kevin, why has the bill of lading accompanying that shipment conveniently disappeared in order not to identify the importer?

    The double standards of law enforcement practised in Barbados will ensure the continuing moral decline and gun violence as long as the law is the ‘one-eye’ king in the land of the morally blind.


  11. On Sunday, August 23, 2015, while a guest on CBC’s “The People’s Business,” RBPF Acting CoP Griffith said the Force was 185 police officers short of the ideal complement of 1,528. “We clearly are short on numbers in terms of vacancies so we have to work to try to attract more young people joining thee force. It’s kind of fairly hard-pressed to meet the demands that we are called to deal with….”

    In January 2016, Acting Deputy CoP Oral Williams asked Station Sergeants and unit managers have been asked to hold strain as the force wrestles with a shortage of manpower (179 vacancies) and insufficient policing equipment such as batons, holsters, reflective vest, body armour, sprays, shields and other items of clothing to the extent that every member does not have a personal issue.

    However, the RBPF must be congratulated for doing an excellent job despite these unfortunate circumstances.

    Additionally, although the CoP (Ag.) acknowledged there was an increase in the number of individuals applying to join the Force, he admitted that too many of the applicants disqualified themselves by their involvement in illegal drug related activities, selling or abusing drugs.

    How can the Force solve the problem of manpower shortages under these circumstances?

    Our only other option is to recruit prospective officers from regional territories, similarly to what was done by Antigua, Bermuda, Cayman Islands and Dominica.

    But I believe we may not want to pursue that option. Because of insularity issues, I don’t think it would be a good idea at this time.


    • @Artax

      Do you recall when AG at the time Dale Marshall demonstrated a lack of concern about policemen going to Bermuda and Cayman in the early 2000s?


  12. @ Miller
    You well know that the only thing different under your BLP will be the actual personalities who are emboldened to import the drugs …and who would benefit from such loose paperwork….

    It is not like wunna have not so demonstrated in the past…

    What you need to do for us here on BU, is to outline CLEARLY how a dispensation that enjoys the benefit of your wise counsel – will put SYSTEMS in place to deal with this grave problem.

    Either put up … or shut up.

    Bushie has long proposed a solution.
    Put Caswell in charge of ‘maliciousing’ into government business (Chairman of the National Supervisory Committee) and the matter fixed… 🙂

    …cause you KNOW that Caswell mouth aint got no cover….
    LOL
    ha ha ha


  13. i spent the last two weeks asking that fraud Carson who that shipment of cocaine and marijuana in the port belongs to……everyone is suddenly dumb, that is why every one of the black enablers of indian, white and syrian drug and gun runners deserves to be exposed.

    Miller…when the known lowlifes are on here talking about locking up people for crimes, they only mean black people.

    the hardest thing is to know.


  14. @ Artax
    How can the Force solve the problem of manpower shortages under these circumstances?
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    That the answer to your question is not intuitive and OBVIOUS to the authorities (and to people like yourself) is indeed frightening to Bushie…

    The whole point of an education system is to produce future citizens to fill critical roles in the society.

    An INTELLIGENT society therefore sets out to GROOM children to fill various roles -based on their talents, natural interests and instincts….and national resources.

    Good leaders are CRITICAL, so talented children SHOULD be identified early and DELIBERATELY channelled to become GREAT leaders by the time they finish school.

    Teachers are critical role players – and such talents should be identified and channelled from early…

    Policemen are KEY players. Why is there not a program in schools (similar to scouts and cadets) that allow children to become involved and aligned with the police force from primary school to university?
    Not only would this solve ALL recruitment problems, but would produce high quality social ASSETS that could even be exported to other jurisdictions to guide THEIR development.

    What do BRASS BOWLS do instead…?
    …we listen to shiite hounds like Peter Polester …and be-little our ‘prestige’ schools, we reject strong discipline and high standards – opting to allow everyone to do as they like instead, …and expecting that the drug dealers, ZR culture and gang leaders would keep their dirty hands off the children as they grow up….

    Our BEST natural talents are now mostly involved in drugs, ZR & block culture, and general anti-social life. No wonder the police cannot find ‘good’ people. No wonder we cannot find ‘good’ politicians…
    No wonder we cannot win the crime fight against better talents…
    Shiite… we cannot even find a ‘good’ church leader….
    we gotta bring in people to preach and pray…

    Brass bowlery is TRULY amazing….
    It takes a special skill to be so damn stupid.


  15. The major problem is that too many Barbados Police from top to bottom are also involved in criminal activities working hand in hand with criminal deportees, drug dealers and gun sellers for easy money and favours.

    This is well known on the blocks in the underworld.

    There are also some in the BDF known on the streets for selling drugs and guns.


  16. I told you so: Guns and the machete will rule Barbados.

    You can only leave your home, if you have run-flat tyres on your car, body armour and a good life insurance.


  17. The crime statistics during the blp were no better. once the horse bolts it is hard to catch it.
    So the blp yardfowls who take sick pleasure to condemn should start looking at their failed history to control the flow of crime under their administration which should have started with the control of our ports of entry were all the guns pass through


  18. This is well known on the blocks in the underworld.

    underworld…what underworld…i dont go near the place and i know all of that.

    ah bet any DEA, Scotland Yard or RCMP agent worth their salt would tell you the same thing,


  19. Angela Yardfowl….has Fruendel and Adriel Nitwit. attorney general installed the cameras in the port yet, seeing as yall aint lock up anyone for the half million worth of drugs in the port 2 weeks ago.


  20. The Police know where the “Blocks” and “Drug dens are”.

    We can continue to write sheet on BU but I do not know why it is taking so long to raid the Blocks and Drug dens.

    I do not want to believe that since…. “de ones dat get shoot?….wuh dem ent nubody! leh duh kill du one nedda. ”

    I listened to Mr. X on brasstacks and what was truly disturbing to hear that men killing each other because of a “diss”.

    Another stupid import of North American ghetto culture.


  21. As usual, most people are using the problem of increasing crime to advance their own agendas.

    The leadership of the police force, who want to expand their fiefdom, will tell you that we need to hire more policemen, even though there is no evidence that hiring more policemen will stop the gunmen.

    The bleeding heart progressives will tell you that we need to provide more jobs and more recreational programs for the youth, even though there is no evidence that criminals want jobs or sports programs. Especially if they can make big bucks with a few drug trades while watching TV.

    Subversives like Pacha will blame the ruling politicians and the political culture, even though the political culture we have is the one most people apparently want, and there is no evidence that changing the ruling team will have the slightest impact on the problems we are facing.

    All the Caribbean islands have high crime rates today. That was not the case under colonial rule in the first half of the 20th century. The transition from British values to Caribbean values caused the problem. Most West Indians are brought up by coarse, primitive parents who produce SELFISH, UNRULY, REBELLIOUS, VULGAR children. They don’t know how to raise kids who will become adults with INTEGRITY, GENUINE DECENCY, and SELF CONTROL.

    There are no short term solutions to the problem of crime. It is the price we pay for democracy, which empowers people of lower class backgrounds who lack refinement and ethics.


  22. Why is the fight amongst the soldiers intensifying now? Simly because the market is getting smaller and smaller. Most Barbadians cannot afford food and shelter anymore for their families. How should they afford illegal drugs?


  23. WW&C

    I see your pretty boy Justin Trudeau is cracking down on illegal immigration and giving lectures to asylum seekers who cross the Canadian border.

    All this because just 3,800 Haitians moved illegally to Canada from the United States.

    What hypocrisy. Trump, faced with 20 million illegals, tries to crack down and is universally condemned. Trudeau, the Liberal poster boy, cracks down after just 3,800 illegals enter Canada.

    Go Trump!


  24. Chadster…those are trump’s illegals…I should not say illegal Haitians cause most of them are victims from the Haiti earthquake 7 years ago..,..who should have been given asylum in US.

    …anyway, go trump is correct…straight to prison, impeachment and disgrace.

    Maybe the overly miseducated black government ministers and politicians with all their useless degrees, titles, arrogance and never ending dependency on white europe and north america….should take a leaf from Marcus Garvey’s genuis but humble 8th grade education.

    “Marcus Garvey was one of the greatest black leaders we ever had. He said that black people will never be successful depending on whites or other races of people, he said that as black people we must come together and do for self. I’m going to list some of Marcus Garvey’s achievements.

    Marcus Garvey built factories, where he made black dolls for black kids to play with.
    He built a hotel.
    He built a chain of grocery stores.
    His organization had their own trucking company.
    He built schools.
    He built restaurants.
    His organization had their own printing press.
    He started 3 newspapers.
    His main newspaper was called the Negro World, and that newspaper was published in Spanish and French.
    His organization bought 5 ships and they started practicing international trade and commerce.
    Marcus Garvey’s organization owned office buildings.
    They also bought an auditorium in New York, and that’s where he mainly spoke and this place was called Liberty Hall.
    By 1922 Marcus Garvey organization had 6 million members.
    They had branches in 40 countries.
    Marcus Garvey also started his own political party, and he named it The Peoples Political Party.

    Marcus Garvey did all of that without help from the Government, and he did it with an 8th grade education.

    “We are either on the way to a higher racial existence or racial extermination.”
    ~ Marcus Garvey Marcus Garvey Marcus Garvey Daily Quotes Marcus Mosiah Garvey”


  25. Angela Yardfowl…I will take your silence as a no.

    The present government had ten years to install cameras at all ports of entry on the island, both airports and sea ports, anywhere there are customs, coast guards etc…..and never did.

    Yes, ten years to do a lot. Now more promises about transport and healthcare.

    As Bushie says, anyone who believes it is a certified, upper class honours brassbowl.


  28. @ David

    I remember in 2006 Dale Marshall blamed the RBPF’s shortage of manpower and not being able to fill 130 vacancies at that time, on “extreme difficulty in finding new young police recruits” and islands such as the Bahamas and Bermuda that were actively seeking to recruit “the best trained and experienced officers and supervisors.”

    Marshall also made reference to the fact that Bahamas, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands were offering attractive salaries than what government was prepared to offer.

    Bermuda Police Service, for example, was at that time advertising for police officers, and offering a starting salary equivalent to BD$112,000 per annum, in comparison to a constable in Barbados being paid approximately $25,000 per annum.

    Several constables resigned from the RBPF in June 2006 “to take up lucrative offers in the Cayman Islands,” while a number of constables and sergeants resigned to work in the police service of other neighbouring jurisdictions.

    Marshall was reported as having told the media: “We are not prepared to try to match anybody’s salaries. At the same time, we can’t prevent people from moving from the Royal Barbados Police Force and going abroad.”

    I know of police officers, some of whom are friends of mine, who resigned from the Force medically unfit; after completing 33 1/3 years of services or to work as Chief of Security or Security Officers at hotels, quasi government and private sector organizations such as Barbados Port Authority, UWI and security firms.


  29. Well said chad99999 on both posts. You know you are in the bullseye when the mad racist Well Well I’m A Cretin starts with his bullshit.


  30. Uhhhhhh….the racists must be going crazy, their lies and fraud to the world got sabotaged big time this morning…

    The drug dealers, gun runners, money launderers racists have all joined together on the crazy train…lol

    The Main Purpose Is To Share The Concepts of Freedom Over Tyranny That We May Each Be Better Prepared To Choose Good Over Evil! In Today’s World We are Constantly Bombarded With Information, Literally From Left And Right.

    Truth Is Light And What Is Light Brings Understanding Causing Our Minds To Expand Making The Way Before Us Sure!

    On The Other Hand, Misinformation Mixed With Lies Brings Confusion & Chaos.

    It Is That Simple Really, We See Examples Of These Constantly Before Us Leaving Us With The Freedom To Choose Liberty Or Bondage.

    We Need To Be Prepared And Those Who Are Need Not Fear…

    Those Who Do Not Prepare Both Spiritually And Otherwise, Will be Lead Like Sheep to The Slaughter!

  33. Chadster…..ya violent, racist neo nazi cry baby Chris Cantwell…aint get no bail…lol

    The well orchestrated black on black violence due to the gun and drug trades in Barbados has to be stamped out completely.


  34. Mr Blogmaster, at 2:46…quite correct. I use you as the sounding board for my ripostes most often but in reality I am responding to another’s epistle (:-)…. in this case it was blogger Kevin’s thrust that caught my attention…..sooooo, I crave your indulgence of the apparent illogic of my retort to your original!!!!

    No BushTea, or is that yes…. perhaps I fall into the category you describe….

    The history of our political existence clearly makes your point that…. “practically ANY COMBINATION … finding themselves with the same opportunities to do shiite …. CAN BE GUARANTEED to do the same, similar …or even stinker shiite?”

    And what is even more depressing is that every voting Bajan KNOWS that… many unfortunately subscribe to the dictum ‘I want some too’….

    …. thus we will continue in this depressing corrupt, wild west gun culture for the foreseeable future.

    Bushie, you might just be surprised to know that your new-found Joan of Arc could just be the Pauline messiah you have been hoping for with her covenant of hope to implement your 10 point BUP or PUP plan to save the land of brass bowls from themselves.

    Since you are perpetually incapable of executing your 10 point plan she decided to copy your proposals and put them in her covenant of hope; but with an exclusion. Neither you nor Caswell would be welcomed in her ‘rainbow ‘Cabinet of LGBT dreamers.

    It seems your BBE has not yet saved its only anointed son from his misogynistic sins.
    Why are you so concerned about what an imaginary BLP administration would do and not what is happening right before your very eyes in your sweet brass bowl land of hypocrisy and double standards?

    If you are a real man whom you believe the BU family look up to and don’t see yourself as just another cowardly ‘invalid’ Bajan brass bowl full and sound and fury signifying nothing let us see you comment on what is going on with the shipment for which there have been no arrests and public exposure.

    How can you be vilifying and condemning the small fry end users and perpetrators of the drug trade and gun violence but want to remain silent on the facilitating role played by politically protected bigger links in the supply chain?

    Let us expose these blatant double standards to make BU’s motto a cry of hope in this wilderness of blatant corruption.

    “For the cause that lacks assistance, the wrong that needs resistance, for the future in the distance, and the good that [BU] can do.”


  36. Where is Hal the tool…Naime’s friend..lol

    Miller…the situation is indeed bad and if ministers and authorities cannot get the simpliest of matters fixed on the island, how will they ever extricate themselves from their bribers, the drug dealing, gun running, money laundering bottom feeders and parasites on the island.

    The majority population’s only chance to free themselves from that decades old seige is to expose each and every one of them and chase them away….make them go on the run until some real authorities grab them and put them away.


  37. It is alleged Sherwin Patterson alias Jersey Jersey a US drug deportee who spent around 9 years in a US Prison before being sent back to BIM is involved in that coverup container shipment of coke and weed.

    He is a former co-owner of Rolex with Promoter Freddie of FAS and also Tastee Treats and Ace of Diamonds all Strip Clubs which are out of business.

    There is a history of Bribing Immigration, Customs and local Police.


  38. Lol…time is indeed longer than twine.

    Mayor De Blassio is getting together a panel to discuss the removal of christopher columbus, the animal, criminal, enslaver, murderer, thief’s statue from Columbus Circle in NYC……

    ….how wonderful.


  39. It’s going to be fun watching all the bottom feeders taken down, they have run loose and wild on the island for decades and of course, nothing lasts forever.


  40. FOOLS MOCK, BUT THEY SHALL MOURN…

    Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished…

    By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil…

    Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right…

    Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall…

    An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire…

    A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends…

    A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good…

    He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass…

    He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.

  41. 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


  42. Barbados need an Attorney General who will seek the death penalty for murderers who received a fair trial by their peers. If hanging is too barbaric for Amnesty then we are following the US by using the injections.
    None of them wants to die as their lawyers appeal after appeal once they are sentenced to hang.
    Lets just hang two of them and you would see that the shooting to kill stops because they are mostly cowards.


  43. Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy
    Blessed are the peace makers for they shall be called the children of God
    Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see GOD

    any one who fits all of the above criteria go to the head of the class ,
    Bush tea how about You ,,NO!


  44. Blessed would be the ministers if only they would do their jobs that taxpayers pay them a monthly salary to do…..and stop taking bribes to destroy the island.


  45. @ angela
    What kinda idiot are you…?
    What peacemaker what??!!
    You ever see a peacemaker with a whacker?

    Bushie is not here to bring peace … but to whack….
    ALL shiite will be pulverised….
    which puts you in grave danger – as we know.

    If the BBE bosses wanted Bushie to be a ‘peace maker’, he would have been given a Blog like David (BU) …or be lukewarm like the de Dribbler….. not handed a stinking whacker.

    …nor is the Bushman ‘merciful’ or ‘pure in heart’…. cause there is NO MERCY for brassbowlery …and Bushie’s wutless heart still lusts after Islandgal – despite the 2X4 threat….
    LOL

    AT LEAST I AM NOT THE ONLY SMELLING THE STENCH…BUT SOMEHOW IT IS ME THEY THREATEN TO MUZZLE…MAKES REASON STARE!!


  47. It is time the authorities, particularly the prime minister and useless, lazy Adriel Nitwit, attorney general in Barbados stop allowing the perpetrators of criminal activities to hide behind slander laws…..the criminals of the island have been hiding behind slander laws for decades.

    …..every local and foreign criminal knows all they have to do is commit from murder to rape to drug trafficking, to gun running to money laundering and every crime in between in Barbadis and then invoke slander laws to protect their criminality……

    …..now if ya had a real government who wanted to clean up all the crimes now destroying the island’s reputation abroad…those laws will be repealed immediately. …and all the white, indian, syrian, lebanese, black criminals in the island would be dealt with once and for all….a major clean up.

    “THE OWNER of the nightclub in the middle of date rape allegations is ready to take the matter to the law courts.
    .
    Michael Forde, the owner of Duke’s Night Lounge in First Street, Holetown, St James, told the WEEKEND NATION his attorney had advised him he had legal recourse to sue for slander, once his accusers could be identified.”


  48. Bajan….Naime sees her empire and days of easy living off the misuse of the island crumbling so her agitation and fear have set in, driving her crazy, and I am her main target while she desperately searches for allies on BU….but I will carry her to the bone.

    It’s obvious she has spent the last couple years stewing at my posts, trying to change the direction of the conversations on the blog, but has failed miserably….

    Barbados needs cleaning up and the likes of the Naimes need to be laid bare for the whole world to see.


  49. When will the government take back the hundreds of millions of NIS pension fund money they picked up and gave away to the likes of Cow Williams et al and return the money to NIS…the people’s money they stole to give away….

    Herbert says the NIS fund is going broke….

    …..trained actuaries usually know what they are speaking about…..all of that theft of the people’s money is contributing to the decay of society and the pity crimes being committed by the population just to survive..

    …… is that why Angela Yardfowl is going crazy like Naime, Herbert is outing what government was trying to hide…..lol

    “Going broke!
    BPSA boss predicts cash flow problems for NIS

    Added by Marlon Madden on August 24, 2017.
    Saved under Business, Local News
    1
    A private sector executive is predicting that it will not be too long before the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) begins to suffer from the very cash flow problems that the Freundel Stuart administration is experiencing.

    Therefore, President of the Barbados Private Sector Association (BPSA) Charles Herbert is not bullish about the NIS’ long-term financial stability unless there a some drastic changes to its mode of operation.

    Herbert this morning told a public forum organized by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Barbados that the social security programme would definitely have a cash flow problem in the foreseeable future.

    As a result, he said, Barbadians should expect either fewer benefits or they would be asked to make even higher contributions.”


  50. I have been ringing the Alarm Bell for a few years now about the Threat Against Individual Sovereignty by the Ideology of the Herd Mentality [Socialism]. The Cost of Freedom is not Free it comes at a High Price, it calls for the Engagement of the Individual and all Citizenry to Guard Against those who Seek to Degrade, Compromise and Take away Our Freedom.

    It is Especially Reprehensible to see our Island trust in Chaos and Divisiveness by Imposters to that Spirit of Freedom and is doing their Utmost to Create Divisiveness and Turmoil and they don’t even reside here.

    Please Do Not Allow Those Filled with Hate to Cause Usurpation and Disturbance by Using their Mouths as The Most Lethal Weapons by Infringing upon the Rights of Minorities causing Dissension and Uprising by Instigating Hate among the Collective Heard Mentality Majority!

    I love Barbados; here is my Story… A Rich Heritage of Barbadian and Arab Ancestry… A Story that needs to be Re-told least we Forget?

    From Slavery and Oppression To Freedom…

    I speak as half Barbadian and half Arab “sand negro”. I can relate in both instances, of a great heritage my husband John I share.

    I was Born in Barbados in the parish of St. John, and lived in Messiah street as a child. My mother was a Reid of Barbadian Irish Ancestry who married Isaac Abraham from Syria. It turns out that that John and I are 3rd cousins through our Father’s lineage. I could not be more passionate about the things I believe to be true because the spirit of Tyranny oppressed both sides of my Ancestry.

    One side fleeing an oppressive regime leaving the middle East, while the other side travelled on Slave Ships bound for Barbados. I speak of the difference between Freedom and Tyranny because I understand and know the difference. Fortunately for me I was converted to Christ at age 18 and have studied, pondered and prayed to understand many topics including having read the Scriptures many time always seeking discernment. I have awakened to the understanding of Liberty and Freedom Versus Tyranny & Oppression. Our families fled Syria as Christians many years ago under similar circumstance as to what we are witnessing now.

    In the late 1800’s the Ottoman Empire ruled by Muslims, controlled the Region, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan, were not separate as they are now. Our fore fathers land and valuables were stolen and they were made Serfs because they were Christians.

    When the Ottoman Empire started to break down, many fled to The Americas in hopes of Freedom and a better way of life. My Father and my husband’s family were the latter generation who were left of this mass migration which started back then. They worked very hard and overcame many barriers while adapting to their new environment, often in rural and inhabited territories. They were never given a free pass or entitlements as we are seeing now under the Past Administration. So they must be an ulterior motive don’t you think?

    Christians were greatly persecuted as they are now from what we are witnessing in the Middle East! Except they are not the ones flooding Europe and the West, they remain at the mercy of Tyranny. They were not welcomed in the US, ever wonder why?

    We have to recognize the Culprit and Rise above the Tide including those who uphold his ideology of Divisiveness! …The Adversary was a liar from the Beginning of time, and this is Evils Game, Always was and Still Is. Racism is one of his most deceptive tools. Do Not Allow the Race Game to reign on your parade; you are far too valuable to fall pray of its Snares… Just the thoughts from a lady who’s Ancestors were Slaves on Both sides of her lineage.

    I so related to the Forgotten Story of of my Ancestors who were the first Slaves on the Island 200 years before the Africans Arrived, because of my Barbadian Ancestry through my Mother’s lineage.

    It is Good to Remember that All Barbadians born on this beautiful gemstone, of Barbadian heritage have Ancestors who were Slaves Originally; the chisel of oppression carves us all of the same stone. It is well to remember that Slavery in any shape form or colour whether from Ireland, Scotland and England or Africa is Anti-Christ, for where the Spirit of the lord is there is Liberty m 2 Corinthians 3: 17 and the opposite is Tyranny, Bondage and Slavery.

    What most do not realize is that Serfdom still exist today in the guise of Socialism and prospers worldwide and we that are on the Isles of the sea are not exempt. I am Appreciative of my Heritage and for the things I have Learned, Loved and Experienced here among my Bajan Brothers and Sisters and for the Courage and Fortitude of the Ancestors that runs through All our Veins!

    John Naime, “You Know Absurd Freedom must Sound to those who are Comfortable in Slavery?”… They are the Ones who Fight the Hardest to Preserve the Very Fetters and Chains of Hell!!

  52. Angela Yardfowl…ya know ya will have to answer the Bushman and I today about why Herbert is predicting the NIS going broke will create more hardships on the island……right.

    …. how will you explain to us why in the last 10 years not one government minister had the intelligence or commonsense to prevent the raiding and misuse of the NIS pension fund or the intelligence and commense to prevent the island from devolving into such hardships for its most vulnerable citizens which in turn has devolved into such criminality just for daily survival….it is all linked.

    Am sure yardfowl that ya are, you will be more than happy to enlighten the BU folk.

    Minorities on the island cannot survive without the illegality and criminality of money laundering, gun running and drug trafficking, they would have to leave the island in search of real jobs……

    …..take away their illegal and criminal practice of flooding the island with drugs, guns and illegal money, which in the last 4 decades created a false economy that both governments have grown too reliant and dependant on…..

    …..this entrenched criminality encouraged by both governments and their protection of minorities who engage in these activities at an extremeky high level has created an environment for crimes by bringing additional hardships due to government dependence on a criminal, false economy……the same two governments who are not intelligent enough to do or know better…..it is all linked and the causation of a now decayed society.


  53. Well Well “If she really wants to be useful, she should give up the names of all the ministers and other public officials/politicians ETC”! INDEED SINCE YOU ARE SO INFORMED THAT WOULD BE YOUR OPPORTUNITY AS UNDERCOVER INFORMANT…

    SLANDER IS THE NAME OF YOUR GAME…DAVID IS WELL AWARE THAT I DO NOT NEED THE BU MEDIUM TO DISTRIBUTE INFORMATION… HE RECEIVES MY WEEKLY EMAILS ONE IN MANNY MANY.

    AND I AM NOT UNDER A FALSE NAME LIKE YOU HEREON BU, I HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE LIKE YOU. WHAT I DO NOT LIKE TO SEE IS INJUSTICE METERED OUT BY A SLANDEROUS UNSTOPPABLE MOUTH LIKE YOU AND YOURS. THAT IS NOT MY STYLE OF WALLOWING IN THE MIRE. I PREFER TO DISPENSE WITH THE TRUTH.

    SINCE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT CIVIC DUTY PLEASE EXERCISE YOUR CIVIC DUTY AND TAKE ALL THE INFORMATION AND EVIDENCE THAT YOU POSSESS ABOUT THE WRONG DOERS IN BARBADOS TO THE POLICE, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL, THE CHIEF JUSTICE, ACTIVIST LAWYERS LIKE COMMIE SING SONG, THE THREE NEWS PAPERS IN BARBADOS, THE VARIOUS BLOGS IN BARBADOS, BUT MAKE SURE YOU TAKE YOUR EVIDENCE AND NOT YOUR SLANDER.

    WE STILL LIVE IN A CIVILIZED SOCIETY WHERE PEOPLE ARE PROSECUTED BASED ON EVIDENCE AND NOT YOUR SAY SO. THE INTELLIGENCE APPARATUS IN BARBADOS PROBABLY HEAR ALL THE PHONE CALLS, SO WHY DON’T YOU CONTACT THEM WITH WHAT EVIDENCE YOU HAVE SO THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO DO THEIR DUE DILIGENCE.

    AND IF BY CHANCE YOU HAVE NO EVIDENCE FOR HEAVENS SAKE SHUT UP FOR YOU WILL BE JUDGED BY EVERY WORD YOU UTTER! WE ARE ALL FREE TO CHOOSE HOWEVER WE ARE NOT FREE TO CHOOSE THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR CHOICES!

    THOSE LIKE YOU NEED A LICENSE FOR YOUR DIABOLICAL, VICIOUS, SLANDEROUS LETHAL WEAPON OF A MOUTH. THE UNFORTUNATE PART IS THAT YOUR STYLE OF PONTIFICATING IS GIVEN A FREE PASS HERE THAT ENCOURAGES YOU TO CONTINUE STEERING THE PLOT OF RACISM, HATE AND DIVISIVENESS AGAINST MINORITIES. THE VERY ESSENCE OF EVIL!!

    ANGELA IS 100% CORRECT…”WWC….do you ever take a bathe. Your constant stench emits by way of my computer. David can you put a muzzle on this ole heifer”

    AT LEAST I AM NOT THE ONLY SMELLING THE STENCH…MAKES REASON STARE!!


  54. now that Hal the tool has found his true life partner of middle eastern descent who is unmasked as he is and wants to sue bloggers for slander like he does, Hal is in hiding, lol, lol

    i spent the last half hour laughing too hard to type anything.

    many people have seen these 2 links and despite seeing what is unfolding, they still can`t quite believe it……

    ….i had one of the nasty plots of the minorities against the majority black population on the island removed from facebook yesterday,it was filled with inaccuracies and lies and invited the US to practice Barbadosvicious version of diversity which we all know entails keeping the black majority mentally enslaved in a slave society of black peoples own making.

    …the last time the US followed advice from racists in Barbadios, the slaves from the southern states in the US paid dearly for over one hundred years, the evil effects of which are still being felt by their descendants to this day.

    ah guess i am not very well liked by the lowlife racists and bottom feeding parasites on the island today, maybe they need to be introduced to some modern day southerners from the US.

    everyone has to play their part and be vigilant to protect themselves, their futures and that of their children and grandchildren on the island…

    i am only one person and this in no way negatively impacts me or mine.


  55. Larry Elder – Racism as a Distraction

    From The Rubin Report, Larry Elder makes a compelling case that racism in America no longer remains a significant problem, contending that the perception of racism is exploited by the Democratic Party for political reasons. If you want to get to the root of problems in the black community, look at the breakdown of the family unit.


  56. Larry Elder only regurgiates what he has been told by anwhite racist society.
    Yes the problems within the black family is real and evident however there are many barriers which was intentionally placed in the way of the black family with an intent to separate and destroy the moral foundations of the black family
    All the negative vibrations did not start in the black family overnight.it took years of planning by the master of the New world order to unhinge and uproot the moral framework by which the black family one lived
    What is happening now is a contiunation of the same method of programming which was instilled in the black person mind from slavery through variuos media outlets including the belived cell phone and which targets and specifically coded to destry the moral fabric of the black community


  57. 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

    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”.

    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.

    We are on a Very Slippery Slope… IT IS NOT ABOUT HATING GOVERNMENT, IT IS ABOUT RESISTING THE IDEA THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS OUR MASTER AND SILENCE IS CONSENT!

    THE NEXT STEP, VENEZUELA, A VALE OF TEARS!!


  58. 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.


  59. 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!!


  60. 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!!


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


  62. 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.


  63. @ 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.

    http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/the-big-picture/2017/02/big-picture-people-america-170216063801575.html


  64. 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.”


  65. @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.

    A. Dullard


  66. 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.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-08-25/samsung-heir-sentenced-to-five-years-prison-on-graft-conviction

    “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.”


  67. 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.


  68. 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.


  69. 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”.


  70. 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”.


  71. 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.

  72. whatever happened to BUs sane commenters, crazy Naime got yall stunned or what…lol


  73. 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.


  74. Angela Yardfowl….you are not considered a sane BU commenter…why in hell would you answer, I said SANE BU commenters.

    Ah said what I had to said, it cannot be unsaid, you can only stew and wait for Herbert to remove you..lol


  75. @Chickens coming home to Roost August 24, 2017 at 5:26 PM “It is alleged Sherwin Patterson alias Jersey Jersey…He is a former co-owner of Rolex with Promoter Freddie of FAS and also Tastee Treats and Ace of Diamonds all Strip Clubs which are out of business.”

    How does a strip club go out of business???

    How do 3 strip clubs go out of business???


  76. @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?


  77. @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.


  78. June Naime August 25, 2017 at 4:49 AM “I was Born in Barbados in the parish of St. John, and lived in Messiah street as a child. My mother was a Reid of Barbadian Irish Ancestry who married Isaac Abraham from Syria…while the other side travelled on Slave Ships”

    If your mother was a Reid of Irish ancestry and your father was an Abraham from Syria then your ancestors did NOT repeat NOT travel to Barbados on slave ships.

    It is dishonest to [mis]appropriate the history and the suffering of others.


  79. Finally…an intelligent, sane BU commenter to expose crazy Naime for the fraud that she is……kudos Simple Simon.

    …..even the suffering of the enslaved ancestors and the evil, negative impact that suffering still carries on the psyches of the majority black descendants’ psyche even today, the horror of centuries of damage…these low life, drug dealing, money laundering, gun running, blighted cursed scum for minorities are jealous of and want to take credit for, insisting they and their ancestors suffered the same fate…

    ….and of course empty headed asses like Hal and Angela Yardfowl are such shamefully, useless negros, they would readily believe the lies..


  80. June Naime August 25, 2017 at 12:44 PM #

    “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”…. As others who speak out about the Stench …

    Time to Drain the Swamp!!

    The good part is that others are beginning to speak up and the True Frauds are being exposed.

    They Envy of Sound Uplifting Conversation while calling on the ‘Stench’ to continue the Lower form of Discussion that’s what they do best and Race Bating is their Fondest Tool…

    Sad Indeed is that they may not Realise they are Doing The Adversary’s Bidding. Unfortunately for them they will realize a Tad too Late that as he will not support his own at the last day… Even SADDER is that if they do not Seek to Change the Error of Their Ways they will lose their Souls and be in a state where their Sins will be as an Unquenchable Fire because they Deny the One that through His Mercy and Atonement paid the price for All on Condition of Sincere Repentance, He could have saved them if only their Pride and Hard Hardheartedness had not Severed their Conscience!

    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.

    Thus Choosing the Better part is as Clear as Night is from Day…So we are left without Excuse when Choosing Evil. Remember Our Choices Will Determine Our Eternal Destination!!

    I for one Do Not Rejoice in their Folly, I Pray they will Repent before too late!

    Keep Speaking the Truth…It Does Not Need Defending it Simply Needs Declaring!!

    Thanks for all who Shared their Understanding of Socialism…Please Share Some More.

    REMEMBER …The WARFARE IS STRONG FOR he KNOWS THAT his TIME IS SHORT And ALL Hell IS LET LOOSE AS WE ARE WITNESSING IN THE WORLD AND NONE ARE SPARED.

    BE FEARLESS REMEMBER…

  81. But there is always an upside to every negative, as I saw on facebook this morning, more and more of the majority black population on the island are getting the courage to EXPOSE in their comments the decades old nastiness and vile practices of the minority white, indian, syrian, lebanese and their black enablers, to keep the island as a segregated slave society.

    …..on facebook no less.

    That was not even possible a year ago.

    I and many others on BU have not worked in vain.

    “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.

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.
