Just when you think it would not be possible for Minister of Education Ronald Jones to trump some of his previous foolish utterances, his suggestion that Canada’s High Commissioner to Barbados, Marie Legault, be recalled for “meddling in the domestic political affairs of Barbados” for having the temerity to offer the completely innocuous suggestion that “Barbados was ready for a male or female leader” moves to the top of my list. Is there a third option, or is the Minister suggesting only the male option is correct for Barbados in perpetuity?
Every Barbadian Prime Minister has had a penis. The possession of a generative member is, in fact, the one trait they all share. They may have had differing religious or educational backgrounds, or hailed from different parishes. Yet all have been men. But with the prospect of Mia Mottley becoming the first penis-free prime minister, it’s not surprising that her DLP rivals want to remind Barbados and the delegations doing business here that their genital anatomy is the norm. When your party has made a hash of the country over 10 years, evidently tradition becomes your last resort.
@whiteHill March 16, 2018 at 6:35 PM “Who the hell condoned young men wearing their pant showing their pooch.”
I believe that this custom comes from America where you so unhappily reside.
For the believers, that is for the majority of us, we know that God has long called women to lead as in the Gospel of Mark, chapter 16 “When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body….they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed…”“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter.” So it was these three women, the two Marys and Salome who first knew of the resurrection. It was these 3 women who told the men the good news.
And in the Gospel of John Chapter 4, Jesus meets a woman at the well. She had had 5 husbands and was at the time living with a man who was not her husband, yet she believed and she went into the city and called the men and the men followed her “Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.”
God did not consider woman’s flesh as something to be despised…God selected it to be the very vessel of salvation in Jesus Christ. God saw fit to honor women by entering the world through one of them.
“Greet Andronicus and Junia,” Paul wrote in Romans 16:7, “my fellow Jews who have been in prison with me. They are outstanding among the apostles, and they were in Christ before I was.”
In Romans 16:1-2, Paul writes, “I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon in the church in Cenchreae. I ask that you receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of his people and give to her any help she may need from you, for she has been the benefactor of many people, including me.”
And in the Old Testament:
“the Lord raised up judges” to provide leadership for the kingless people (Judges 2:16). One such leader was Deborah. At the beginning of Judges 4, the text reports that “Deborah, a prophet, the wife of Lappidoth, was leading Israel at that time.”
The prophet Micah identifies Miriam as one of the three leaders sent by God to bring Israel out of Egypt (Micah 6:4)
Josiah tore his robes in repentance and summoned a prophet… he chose Huldah, a woman and prophet
“Your sons and daughters will prophesy…Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy” (Acts 2:17–18).
Ruth and Naomi plan to get Boaz’s attention, and in which Ruth is the one to approach Boaz under the cover of night
In the Song of Songs the Schulamite initiates a sexual encounter in a vineyard in the countryside, and it is she who offers her lover a frank invitation to drink her wine and to enter her “garden” to taste its choice fruits.
So women have long been called to lead, and women have led, and are still ready to lead. There can be no debate about that.
Whitehill, am not judging, you are the one have to live with the parts of your comments that were very unfair to single mothers who have for centuries reared children on their own….. while you are giving village ram fathers a pass, I am well aware that both parents should share responsibilities for the lives they bring into the world, and if only one does, the other is neglectful and deadbeat.
Just for the record…
WhiteHill is right as shiite….!!!!
You Bushie and White Hill, and de rest ‘o wunna men need to spend a lot more time fathering your sons, [and daughters], and cherishing your grandchildren, and your elders etc., and stop being such losers. Stop blaming others for your own failures.
No penis is a good thing.
Dr. Simple…the village ram mentality is so embedded in the male psyche that over the decades males have actually managed to convince themselves that it is the only reason they exist and parenting their sons and daughters were never part of the equation, the ones with their god mentalities are the worse, until their penis dies and they need help from the same children they neglected.
that is a pattern as old as the hills, nothing they can say will change any of that.

Your hint disproves that Barbadians are docile people.
Some are attacking the lady because she is thought to be foreign.
@Well, Well March 17, 2018 at 3:50 PM “until their penis dies”
And sometime the penis dies a good 15-20 years before they do.
And then they want to hang around their children, grand children and their long suffering wives like some kinda loopy dog.

Good one there, Mock Doc!
But why not combine the two names and come up with “Bush Hill”?
In that case men would be neither fathers nor grand-fathers just traders buying fun for the night with Natalie as PM (prime meat) to be ‘eaten’ before retreating to their caves in a state of satiation.
Bush hill indeed..
they just murdered a Brazilian Council woman who was advocating for progress for women, particularly females from the favelas.
…. as soon as women mention the words progress for women, they are attacked by male chauvinist pigs and the most dimwitted females in the society…who should all be imprisoned for violating women’s basic human rights to survive ad prosper.
Barbados needs matriarchy. Male Leadership failed since 1966. Too much male NATO-principle, too much liming and relaxing.
MAM will need a very, very heavy hand for the male civil servants who talk too much and don´t work enough.
MAM is a male too !
Plantation time for female Barbadians is over. Someone needs to mop the sewage and needs to clean the civil service.
Well if that’s how you see it , Tron !
The adult industry commented on you on BB Today:
“Yet they are prepared to vote for political prostitutes who hide behind the walls of Parliament. These corrupt self-serving bastards may not sell their bodies at Bush Hill but they certainly sell their souls for money. Hypothetically speaking I would prefer to be represented by a prostitute who genuinely has my interest at heart than corrupt politicians whose lack in leadership has brought this country to its knees. In particular politicians whose local and offshore accounts collectively have more money than the national treasury and whose cars individually are worth more than my house.”
Many yardfowls dont have two dimes to rub together, live in decayed, broken down boxes with leaking roofs, dont even own a bicycle. ..they are just illiterate house negros with the mentalities of political pimps and prostitutes who do it for free.
the confusion was indeed started by the Dem yardfowl Maureen Holder at the DLP headquarters where she is completely at home.Ms Holder as usual was targeting Ms Mottley but I notice Ms Mottley ain,t paying her or the Trini Dem no mind.Heard the Trini Dem,talking to Ms holder about the Bees bringing solutions ,tell me Dem has an Elections ben called yet? All in good time,also heard rambling on about the BLP pulling down the country by highlighting problems in the country as the Dees did not highlight the problems with the B,Town sewerage problems.Well maybe they were not doing their jobs.These Dems want to give the inertia of this Government a free pass,especially with this sewerage problem which was drawn to their attention by Ms Mottley and Mrs Inniss some three years ago,but they preferred to build new buildings for BWA and SSA and waste 7 million dollars on all year Independence while ignoring the sewerage issue.Therefore do not come looking for sympathy Trini Dem.I realize this Trini Dem do not call Mr Wickham who although he was a Dem like her,will not let her get away with the nonsense she gets away with with Mr Johnson,Mr Layne or Mr Ellis who sings in the same choir as her,in my opinion.Perhaps we should have two days each for Mr Ellis and Mr Wickham in this Election season and ease out Mr Johnson and Mr Layne who are not political people to keep the Brass Tacks program lively.
The ‘Physical Deficit’ man only just opened a constituency office in St George North.This fool has been a senator and a parliamentary secretary for the last 2 terms of parliament and he has only now opened a CO in a riding where he lost to the incumbent in 2013.They say a picture is worth a thousand words and there is a photo of this man at the opening ceremony and who are the other images in the photo.One would have thought the fool would have made sure he had about 20 constituents in the photo op.No sireee the JA had Minister Jones with his ‘pot’ belly prominently displayed,always a sign of a combination of poor diet and poor personal eating/drinking habits;also in the pic is ByerSuckoo,Todd,the fool Pilgrim and an ugly man probably from out of town to complete the photo op of 6 dumbass Dems.If Ince,the man who speaks of severing the ‘unbiblical cord’ thinks that the good people of St George North want him to represent them,when he had the opportunity of doing so since 2008,only simple minded folk would fall for his brand of politics.Effing rotten sumsbeeches.They cant make a proper decision even when they have the opportunity to do so.
Facebook totals can fool you. BLP whipping DLP in the FB war.
@Well Well & Cut N’ Paste At Your Service March 18, 2018 at 6:37 AM “Many yardfowls dont have two dimes to rub together, live in decayed, broken down boxes with leaking roofs, dont even own a bicycle…”
Sounds like you are describing me…except that I am not a yard fowl.
He aginst all penises except the ones that inserted in him
Ronald Jones, Minister of Education…a domestic and international disgrace! Shame, shame, shame!!!!
Barbados HAS to get rid of him and his neanderthal, retarded government….Pronto!
