Execute or Die

The blogmaster followed with interest the passing of Bills yesterday in the Lower House of the National Payment System Bill 2021 and the Barbados Identity Management Bill 2021. The government appears to be moving to take advantage of technology to enhance and transform how Barbadians do business in a new ecosystem, pay for goods, services. Gone are the days when banks and to a lesser extent credit unions monopolized payment systems. Replacing the ‘tattered and embarrassing’ looking Barbados ID card is also overdue. From following the debate the new Barbados ID card will use current technology to store a range of data to permit the holder to do different types of transactions with optional validation with the use of biometrics etc. The improvements once implemented will improve business facilitation and other deficiencies.

The initiative by government to improve the ‘national payment ecosystem’ to quote Minister in the ministry of Finance Ryan Straughn although laudable exposes the fact homegrown businesses do not control the bulk of payment transactions. For too long Barbadians seem happy to be consumers of goods and services instead of becoming owners in the distribution chain whether financial or commodity. Unless we discover ways to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery enhancements we make facilitated by new laws in parliament will be nothing more than painting ‘lipstick on the pig’.

The other development which caught the attention of the blogmaster was the announcement last week a comeyuh promised to invest 10 million dollars to transform the 400 acre Haymans plantation to a state of the art farm. The blogmaster commends the investor who for whatever reason appears to be motivated to do something that should be part of a larger project to address food security in Barbados. Covid 19 has exposed our shortcomings as far as agriculture production is concerned. We agree there has been increase in agricultural output, however, nothing that has significantly moved the needle to address food security concerns. Did it escape Barbadians Charles Gagnon, owner of Haymans had to remove 50 truckloads of garbage illegally dumped on the site.

The initiative is a timely reminder to inquire what is the project status of 30 acres of land located at Dukes plantation that was donated to UWI Cave Hill Campus in 2017. There is a lethargy that seems to permeate everything we do in Barbados. Surely we have referred to implementation deficit often enough to have made a conclusion by now that we have to change how we do business if we want to sustain an acceptable quality of life for our people. There is an advantage to being a 2×3 island. It should equip us to be nimble in decision-making and project execution.

In simple less flowery language Barbadians must shed comfortable politically partisan positions and evolve to assessing what are national imperatives and just do it. The constant and banal snarling exhibited by stakeholders in civil society is unacceptable given our investment in education. We are a Black majority nation and should be embarrassed to acknowledge that our key gateways to economic activity are controlled by minority AND foreign interest.

    Plse ignore the village idiot. Records of births, marriages and death – and probate – are public records in the UK and other developed countries. How do you think journalists knew about Trump’s family background?
    Every man, woman and child has a right to research them and obtain copies. In fact, it is now an industry. Newspapers do not do the research themselves, they order copies from private companies.
    It is the bread and butter of tabloid journalism, and of genealogists, a favourite with the recently retired. The registers are there to be perused by researchers; orders can take a few days, but journalists get their orders speeded up.
    I am used to Barbados and its peculiar ways. We appear not to even keep Cabinet minutes at the Archives department, so historically we do not know fully how decisions are made by government.

    Hal you don’t have to act like a big head show off Mr. Know It All just because someone made a statement in error which was already politely pointed out and the usual suspects start crowing and coming swooping in like vultures attracted like flies on shit. You were a rat and a snitch as an undercover reporter with Guardian Angels and deserve a professional hit to be taken out so you can swim with fishes or get buried in ditches like bitches. A legendary BU story is the John K of Knox Klan is litigating an appeal legal case where he lost rights to the family estate of his deceased mother where he believes he is a beneficiary under Barbados Law but it appears that the land has already been sold to other third parties and cannot backtrack his legal claim.

    Right on both counts.
    On the first, it continues to amaze even this writer of the level of intersectionality of Caribbeans within the historic and ongoing struggles in North America.

    Some know about people like Garvey, Farrakhan and on and on but there are many, many more historiographies of average Caribbean people who travelled to the USA and made substantial contributions in all fields, in struggles for justice as a recent visit to the Schoenberg Center reminds us.

    It is right to make this point because there is an ethic dominating where Caribbean peoples are or were assumed to be too unsophisticated, disconnected from the global African. This is a lie. Even General Bussa was greatly influenced by the Haitian Revolution. Today Haiti is not generally seen as integral to what the Caribbean is.

    On the point of killing off progressive thinkers. Would you consider that this issue could be more complicated and that sometimes there is a willful desire of some Caribbean socalled radicals to commit suicide.

    Two clutches of cases can be cited. One, a succession of principles of the UWI who pretended to be radical thinkers only to cash-in at the first opportunist- opportunity. Sellouts.

    Two, a generation of people even comrades, well known to you who are now some of the most reactionary neoliberals known since 1980.

    The Caribbeans are all over the world. Those in Cuba, Honduras, Panama, Mexico and Brazil are of particular interest to this writer.

    Under UK law, ‘birth, marriage and death’ certificates are considered to be public records, which means anyone can apply for copies of them.
    A ‘will,’ for example, remains a private document until a grant of probate is issued, upon which it becomes a public document and anyone can apply to have a copy.

    Sometime ago, WURA-War-on-U copied and pasted information from Jackie Stewart’s Facebook page to BU, relative to the London based finance and law firm, Fulcrum Chambers Ltd., its directors and that the company was connected to Butterfield Bank. I was able to peruse Fulcrum’s corporate documents on-line, which indicated the information was erroneous and therefore an attempt to mislead the forum.

    However, I believe the individual you’ve referred to KNOWS that, in Barbados, it is NOT unusual for those documents to remain private………… and, people who are desirous of obtaining copies, have to produce some form of identification. Perhaps the reason why he went to the Registry with his passport.

    Black people are / were the invisible people hidden away in shanty towns between cities of vast wealth and luxury who’s purpose is to serve the rich and be exploited. Some are more equal than others and some do not have a voice or choice of opportunities in life. They will always be looked down upon like dirt upon no matter what they do whether they dress down or up in fancy clothing or they act with good or bad manners. There is a pecking order and place for people and in the institutional racism of slavery and apartheid blacks were not even meant to look into eyes of white people or speak or even step in front of them unless instructed to take orders.

    WURA may be extreme and annoying and unwilling to admit mistakes but her main point is valid and she does a good job dispelling historical misperceptions. William Skinner is just very impatient because we have not progressed fast enough. He wants to see his fight for radical reform won so he can die happy. Hal Austin is mixed up and contradictory as usual. He does not know if he is fish or fowl.

    Critical Analyzer has swallowed the whole right wing hog! Regurgitated the bloody swine, put lipstick on it and thought that Pachamama would not recognise it.

    CA what you are proposing will not change the status quo. I too believe that if we pool our resources we can do much better but simultaneously we must press our leaders to actually level the playing field by adding some filler on our side. They must be made to see sense or we must get new leaders.

    As Tennyson Beckles stated – there should be a full portfollio on Conrade Prescod’s desk.

    When will we get to see what is inside it?

    He has missed his opportunity to organise an online Black History course while the people are in lockdown.

    Many of us still believe the white man’s lie that we are the only race to have contributed nothing to civilisation.

    And that is the crux of the problem right there. We hear a few things but we do not piece them together. Soundbites will not do.

    We have to weave a narrative, a complete story together. That is when we will internalise it and really believe it.

    And that is when we will be prepared to redefine ourselves enough to write a new chapter.

    (Quote):
    What is significant, however, is the near absence of anti-racism and equal opportunity legislation in the Caribbean. In many of the advanced democracies
    of the world, mostly European-majority countries, there are protections against racist employment practices and behaviour in the workplace and against unequal and incestuous hiring, with attendant legal remedies and business penalties.
    Ironically, in the black-majority Caribbean, minority business people feel themselves empowered to engage in the kinds of vile behaviour revealed in the video, and assume that their roles as employers serve an adequate excuse for such behaviour. (Unquote).
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    It is indeed a sad commentary and a really ugly reflection on a people and their leaders when such a call is made for the passing of legislation to protect the majority of the population from the ‘acts’ of a minority group (as if that minority is a cabal of criminals) especially in a country where the vast majority of the population is of the same ethnic background and cultural persuasion(s).

    What does that say about ‘that same’ country whose brainwashed still mentally enslaved black majority population like to boast, and nauseatingly so, about their very high standard of education and having, per head of population, one of the highest ‘paper-qualification’ density on the planet?

    Along with this ‘show-off’ asset of being one of the most (mis)-educated and (mis)-trained places on the planet, there exists a 2×3 arrogant pride in its 54 (and going) years of independence and boastfully, albeit it haphazardly so, on the cusp of being a republic fully equipped with a monkey president holding a fully ripened banana instead of a broken trident.

    How can a country ever be proud of becoming a republic when the vast majority of its (highly educated) population continue to behave like vassals to a tiny minority of the country’s population and requiring special legislative intervention to create a measure of political, social and economic adjustment in favour of the black majority?

    Predictable response from you, unfortunately. I refuse to rise to the bait. But – I never disagreed with the main point of your submissions. You simply misunderstood. I said that no white man has ever stood in the way of my advancement or practised overt racism towards me in Barbados. I said the racism practised by the white man in Barbados is mainly covert. I said it is the black overseer type who practised the overt racist behaviour. Now…. the black political leaders are the ones you blame for keeping the status quo intact. How then is that different from ” no white man has ever stood in the way of my advancement?. We black people have the power to change what our leaders do. Just as we have the power to pool our resources and overcome regardless. So again… my suggestion is, was and ever shall be – it is time to stop whining and just DO!

    BOTH approaches – pressuring government for change in policy and procedures AND pooling our resources to advance REGARDLESS.

    And lastly, I stated that you are a bit over the top. It is not as bad in Barbados as you say. I stand by that still.

    P.S. I opinioned that Tiger was probably on something. That may or may not be correct. No tests were carried out. The officers went on an appearance. One does not have to be fully loaded in order for judgment and reaction time to be impaired.

    Dangerous roads are often navigated sucessfully.

    But…. I hope for Tiger’s sake that he is past his difficulties. Reports I saw over the last few days are that he seems more at peace and happy with who he is. These were the exact words of the journalist. SO… my assessment of Tiger’s past self is still valid. Dude was messed up! Maybe he has now cleaned up the mess.

  • 555 Dub Street,

    Yup! I was speculating because of his past. It got under somebody’s skin because of the reference to his obsessive sex with white women ONLY. I never thought much about him except when he was crucified for cheating on his white wife with numerous white women and stupidly apologised to the world for it. It was not the world’s business! But his problem was obvious. So I mentioned it in passing because human behaviour interests me.

    There was a 80 year-old man that married a 21 year-old woman. A year later the woman had a baby and the doctor came out and told the old man that he was the father of a 9lb 8oz baby boy. The old man replied, “This old motor is still a’ running.” Next next year his wife had another baby and the doctor came out and told the man that he was the father of a 8lb 5oz baby girl. The old man replied, “This old motor is still a’ running.” The next year his wife was back in the hospital yet again, having their third child and the doctor came out and told the old man that he was the father of a 10lb 9oz baby boy. The old man replied again, “This old motor is still a’ running.” And the doctor said, “Yeah but you better get your oil changed because this one is black

    Who can apply [for an Ontario birth certificate]

    You can apply for a birth certificate for:

    yourself, if you are at least 13 years old
    your child, if you are named as a parent on your child’s birth registration
    a child, if you are the legal guardian and can provide court documents proving that you have custody of the child. If you are applying online, you will need to submit the supporting documentation together with a letter quoting the online order number, by fax or mail
    

    If you are applying for a birth certificate for a person who is deceased, you can only get a certified copy of birth registration if you are the next of kin, executor or estate administrator (supporting documents are required).

    Next of kin are:

    parents
    spouse or common-law partner
    children, and
    siblings
    

    If all the next of kin are deceased, extended next of kin or their authorized representative may apply.

    Extended next of kin are:

    aunt
    uncle
    first cousin
    grandchild
    grandparent
    nephew, and
    niece
    

    I can quote from hundreds of different jurisdictions but I won’t bore you. The truth is that even within the same country the rules which govern who can apply for birth, marriage, divorce and death records vary from place to place.

    However typically archival records are open to the public so of course John or Hal can access my grandmothers birth 1879 and 1886 birth certificates even though those men are not family.

    Rules may also vary depending on whether or not the person is a public figure, so I may well be able to access Donald Trump’s or Joe Biden’s or Boris Johnson’s birth certificate because there is a public interest in those people whereas there is no public interest in me so it is unlikely that they can access mine [unless they use the good offices of their respective secret services, lol!]

    The reason why current records are not in the public domain is to protect the privacy of LIVING people.

    While it varies from state to state [in the United States of America] death certificates are NOT COMMONLY MADE PUBLIC. In some states, informational copies of death certificates may be made public but do not typically contain all of the personal information or cause of death. So exactly who can get a copy of a death certificate? The requirements for obtaining someone’s death certificate are pretty straightforward. In most cases, in order to request a certified copy of a death certificate, you will either need to be a legally-appointed executor of the estate, a member of the deceased’s immediate family (spouse, sibling, child or parent), or the funeral director. If you happen to be a named inherent, or other close relative with pertinent cause, it’s best to contact the vital records office in the area where the death occurred for more information.

    Please note that I was NOT in error with regards to Barbados’ birth, marriage, divorce and death certificates. Hal was. Many jurisdictions put quite heavy restrictions on who may obtain such documents, especially for living people, but also for recently deceased people. In Barbados’ case records from the Records from the 17th to 19th centuries are typically open, The UK may actually be an outlier in apparently making all such current documents public.

    Birth certificates affect varies areas of law. In UK you have to register births by law and mother has parental responsibility and ‘father’ has parental responsibility if he marries the mother or is named on the birth certificate as father or applies to the court for a parental responsibility order. These effect areas like citizenship, child maintenance as well as wards of court, adoptions

  • Wait a minute! Did that WURA say I only knew about mental slavery of some Barbadians when Mia spoke about it on Itv?????? If you check my BU comments from years back I too have been saying that for years. Never used the term though until I heard it from Bob Marley when I was a teenager. But in my pre-teen years I always thought it ridiculous when I heard how many Bajans spoke so nauseatingly about white people and brown skinned people. Many even argued about who is “clearer” than whom. Now if that is not an indication of mental slavery then I do not know what is. I recognised it as a problem even though I could not put a name to it at the time.

    My mother’s family especially has not been mentally enslaved for at least three generations that I know of. And my father’s father was another strongminded and strongwilled maverick.

    The mental slavery of Barbadians is on the decline. The young people will complete the process.

    You need to stop saying whatever comes to your mind as though it is a fact. Sometimes you are flat out lying.

    For years I have been preaching on BU ad nauseum that we must “start at the very beginning” because our problem is all in our mind. Many times I have said that we must treat the brainwashing before we can think for ourselves

    Even posted Julie Andrews from The Sound of Music to make the point.

    “Let’s start at the very beginning – a very good place to start!”

    Imagine if death certificates were open to all. Imagine that my spouse, or Hal’s or yours, died of AIDS which is still a highly stigmatized and which any of us may have contracted. Imagine if all my friends, enemies, neighbors, colleges, church members, enemies and complete strangers could walk into the registry and have a copy of the death certificate, which could well give those busy bodies access to my most sensitive health information.

    In any event when I first started doing genealogical research I learned that Barbados issues two different death certificates. One is a fact of death which documents that the named person has died and which includes age, last address etc. A cause of death certificate can also be issued on request, which is how I found out that stories I had been told about one grandmother’s poor appetite and refusal to eat were based on her adult children’s observed reality. In the late 50’s anorexia was recorded as the cause of death. Me? If I get even slightly sick I lose my appetite, not hungry, no interest at all in food, so I have told my children not to worry and no force feeding please, because when I don’t feel hungry I am not suffering. I feel fine.

Under UK law, anyone can apply for a copy certificate as they have been classified as ‘Public Records’. The only RESTRICTION is that under Identity Fraud legislation you must know the full details of the person (including full date of birth and parents names) for any birth that occurred within the past 50 years.”

    The reason I “ran away” for months was a problem with the telephone line. A lighting bolt knocked it out. The phone company was in the middle of changing over to fiber optics and they took forever to set up a port. Then they filled up the port with new connections and had to create another one for me. After the problem was solved I found that I did not miss BU.

    Is that you, Ms Prim & Proper Lady Donna?

    That sweet-sounding ‘exclamation’- which had to have awaken any goddess from her serenity in the Land of Nod- now makes you a full-bred Bajan.

    Now there is No more need for you to claim citizenship by de(s)cent.

    It’s a well known cultural fact that Bajans have the sweetest mouths when it comes to the use of a variegation of colourful colloquial expressions aka cussing to make their pent-up feelings absolutely clear.

    We note, from your own admission, that you have done a lot in the area of writing for a Bajan audience.

    So why not try your hand at compiling a dictionary or compendium of Bajan ‘off-coloured’ expressions similar to what has been done with “Bajan Proverbs” to reflect that uniqueness of the Bajan brand of literary excellence which is an admixture of Celtic swear words smoothened on the Blarney stone and delivered with the effervescence of West African colourful gaiety?

    We are sure there are many on this blog (like Hal Asstin, given his [Back] Ivy league colourful upbringing) who would be more than eager to lend a helping hand.
