The National Address by Dr. Hubert Minis last Monday to the Bahamian people was as idle as it was vacuous. You could see right through it.  He had nothing to say. It was, however, an exercise in grandstanding and political showboating. He is using the crisis to promote himself as a dynamic leader.  Then there […]

THE HATRED OF OUR POLITICAL LEADERS OVER COVID 19

Moody’s Downgrades The Bahamas: Why Should We Vote FNM Again?

PLEASE REOPEN ARAWAK CAY AND POTTER’S CAY

POLICE AND RBDF TIRED AND UNDER PRESSURE

The FNM Government acts as if the uniformed services are machines.

First you have to be aware that  every […]
