40 Million Port Scanners – True Cost Anyone?

Dear BU
In the endless cause to stop violence and import of weapons the government has announced the procurement of 2 scanners at a cost of 40 million BBD.
It doesn’t take much searching to find the attached price list for RapiScan products, a top US manufacturer of all types of scanners including container/gantry scanning.
See Scanner Price List – Rapiscan Systems
It is quite evident that a scanner costs 900k-2 million USD.
How the government is allotting 10 million USD to a scanner is a question that should be asked.
Is this a classic example of over-billing with the extra money being kick backed to a corrupt politician/bureaucrat ?
If you at the BU could post this one way or another with my text or your own I would greatly appreciate it.
The fact that it took me 10 minutes of searching on the internet to find List Prices for Scanners just shows how stupid the politician must think we citizens are. How can they be so blatant to claim they are spending X dollars when we can see the cost is 35% of X.
Good day and I hope we can bring someone into the light of justice with this document and future article.
Sincerely
Concerned Bajan with Internet Access

  • @Lorenzo — slim pickings in your diatribe, but ….

    “Gazzerts,unlike you i do not jump on bandwagons” …
    I am hoping you jump off the one you are on

    “i think for myself.” …
    This is lie #1. Not one original idea in that head of yours

    “On top of that i work for a living, therefore,unlike you(..
    Given your “pooch licking they should given you a no-show job. Also lie #2 as I work.

    “i cannot be on a blog 24/7like the tag team.”…
    You should stay off completely, you add nothing here

    “I do not deal in speculation but facts and i will wait until all the facts are known,before commenting.”
    Lie #3. You wait on HQ for talking points. You repeat the same thing over and over.

    “Whenever i see certain persons on here parading likePiece,SSS,Waru,Sarge,Mariposa,Hants,Hal Austin and yourself who between you hog the comments i know your agenda and is not inthe best interest of Barbados.” ….
    I will match my patriotism against yours any day. You think patriotism is reflected in the amount of kool-aid that you drink. That is partisanship not patriotism.

    “Therefore, having read a story in the papers stating that the Dems plan to lood social media with attacks on the government i am not surprised.” …
    Man Think for yourself. I am not B, D or SP. Don’t swallow the propaganda and the regurgitate it. Think, think, think for yourself. Hants just post links and that makes you cry.
    Sarge stated the truth and you started to bawl.
    SSS stated the truth and wanted her banned
    Piece & Waru have you soiling your pants… Go get some big boy pampers

    @ the Honourable Blogmaster

    An apology for you.

    With regard to my recent accusation regarding the “fixed name” issue.

    It appears that, at least with the users with gravatar, the option as to the name that displays is fixed by gravatar.com as opposed to the previous option where we users were allowed to change the name.

    I still wonder why you did not let that remain optional because any periodic changes could be effected

    As it stands now email + gravatar minus VPN and denying html5 canvas to load will allow you to identify your users.

    @ other Barbados Underground bloggers

    Look at this article and see if anything applies for you to use to protect your machines

    Where did I disrespect the blogmaster? By referring to him as compromised, by calling him a joker or is it the fact that I said I would like to light in his crutch from the pretense I am assuming he is under? The blogmaster can defend himself and state straight out that he is not in cahoots with the Mia Rogue Works Mottley regime. You just upset because the SSS have little to no respect for Mia Mottley because she is a rogue in working. But if there is one thing that you are right about is this. I am disgruntled DLP supporter because I fell for one party’s shite before and seeing I never had anything respect for the BLP, it is easy for me not to follow the shite of them. I stopped blogging on here for a time and indicated that I will not comment until Rogue Works present her hidden side. The moment that she granted tax amnesty so her father does not have to worry about the interest accumulated on his years of not paying taxes, the moment she knighted him so he can be elevated above normal status, the moment she placed all her friends in the money positions and talk shite about many hands make light work, I return with a poster depicting a rogue and wicked is ass version of her persona. Also, tell me what lies I have told on here that you think I needed to be branded as one hogging the blog like the tag team label you want to place on those who will not take up Mottley’s scratch grain? Tell me please, one liner? If there is one thing that I pride myself on is not telling lies. If I present information on here that is not factual, you can bet your last dollar that I will say it is not accurate or concede where others present a more accurate picture. Well, the truth be told I like a bassa bassa, so I do not concede that easily I simply say you have your view I sticking to mine. I have no time to be on this blog hogging it. So you will notice clearly that after about 20 comments, you would see a comment from me. I am all about poster protest, and for your information, those posters have reached quite far as well as near. I am about what is right for Barbados. I am about what is right for the people. I am about justice prevailing where injustices are obvious. I am about seeing the stinking DLP feeling the full weight of the law and any of these parasites in the BLP who think they can get their monies through different means and links, lock to cunt-hole up for their fleecing collusions. I am about seeing Barbados operate on transparency and accountability. I am about breaking up the chains that bind the status quo to the various avenues that money is filtered into their pockets by what they deem as legal means base on years of practising the same illegal activity. That is my cause, not sucking licking, picking or idolising prominent political pooches. I am not a lackey, lapdog, onesided view Johnny like you. I call a spade a spade. I see a purpose in blogging on here, if not I would not come at all. So any perceived disrespect you think I have for the blog master, I lose respect for people who I think are liars or operating in deceit and deception. That is my perception of the blogmaster at this time, and until I am proven wrong, I hold no more respect for the blogmaster to whom I believe is compromised. So go clean another pooch, your course is finished, the certificate in pooch licking techniques is now yours to relish in. Jackass of all jackasses!!!
