CHURCH AND STATE

Brian Seymour Part I The government of the Bahamas exists for one reason only that is to provide and preserve the peace for the rights of all individuals and encourage the peaceful and orderly development of its people within its territory.  It is also the duty of the government to defend the rule of law.  It is its duty to provide for the indigent, inclusive of the widows and orphans, and those who from time to time find themselves in distress.  It is not the role of government to give aid and comfort to the slothful.  Simply put, this is

Good morning,  You asked the other day “what’s going on in my world?” Well here is some food for thought basically in summary.  Keep in mind, I can elaborate on all the below.   – Overwhelming amount of illegal immigrants crossing our borders – Our people especially in the Fox Hill area are living in fear of all the gang violence, crime and corruption.  – I look around and see that education to our kids now a days is not important.  -Bahamar has taken a huge toll on our people especially the younger kids in my generation who were about

BRIAN SEYMOUR WRITES FROM FREEPORT

by Brian Seymour Since attaining Independence in 1973, the Bahamas has had three Prime Ministers. First, there was the Father of the nation, Sir Lynden Pindling, secondly, The Honorable Hubert Ingraham; and now, The Honorable Perry Christie, the present sitting Prime Minister. All three men given allowances for human frailties have served us well. They all share a common character fault, not knowing when one’s season is finished. In the case of the first two, they had to suffer humiliating defeat at the polls, and then sent home leaving in its wake, their parties in shambles having to rebuild almost

There’s the Minister for Grand Bahama, getting ready to inspect the Guard of Honor at the Independence Park Rally, with his coat open up. Do these people know any better? God help us!!!      Kelly.

CAN A DEVELOPER TAKE BAHA MAR ACROSS THE FINISH LINE

Today a letter was sent to Bahar Mar employees thanking them for their support and justifying the actions of the company in filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  It went on to say that drastic steps might have to be taken; this signaled to all that the end is near.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: KELLY BURROWS ON BILL COSBY

  I am so terribly disappointed in Bill Cosby “One time America’s dad” over the years I read all of his books, on educating black folks, that there’s a better life than the hood life, particularly in his book “Come On People” sad to say. Here’s a 77 year old man, what a miserable life he must have suffered. He’s a hypocrite of the first order, and a fraudster, I once shared and agreed in his philosophy. Who along with two other revered black men in America like. Vernon Jordan whose book. “Vernon Can Read” that I would highly recommend, Also. Former

KELLY BURROWS TALKS ABOUT HIS FIGHT WITH CANCER

June 19.2015 In the seasons of life i have had more than my share of summers. A long run of sunny days and adventures night filled with lucky stars, uninterrupted by great personal calamity, rewarding in ways i could not have imagined in those formative years growing up in nassau. That was never clearer than when in my late fifties making no attempt to prepare me for what was coming. There were those fleeting moments of wondering, is this payback for having a good life? Despite imperfect behavior and decisions from time to time? Retribution from whoever or whatever has

Elcott Coleby Says The Press Has It Wrong On Moss, Rollins And The PLP

Dear Editor When is ninety-three percent a failing grade? I ask this question because evidently, the critics of the Prime Minister are aggressively seeking to convince the Bahamian public that ninety-three percent is a failing grade.   Ever since the Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie became leader of his party, he began the process of selecting the future leadership of his party and the country. Of the number of future leaders Mr. Christie recruited, about twenty-nine or ninety-three percent of his recruits are still actively involved in frontline politics at various levels of leadership. The names include

(THE SELFISHNESS OF THE FNM)   In today’s Bahamas, generic cialis capsule we must become ever so careful not to allow our country to develop into a country of the “have” and the “have not.”  Listening to the recent mid-year budget debate in Parliament, tadalafil one can easily form the impression that her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, salve the FNM has fumbled the ball big time and is in danger of becoming irrelevant in this parliamentary session.  Stuck in the politics of yesteryear, the mantra of the FNM has not changed from its inception, for example, yes we are for Independence,

LETTER TO THE EDITOR BY DONALD DEMERITTE : THE CASE FOR SMALL BUSINESS

Nassau, Bahamas   Dear Editor,   Re:      Speak Up Bahamas!! (Support your Local Businesses)   I have recently made a conscientious decision to become more outspoken on national matters of importance.  This, almost by definition, means that I have to begin paying more attention to national talk shows, as a preparatory measure.  My preference has always been to tune in to radio stations to listen to jazz and golden oldies.   My decision led me to tune in on several talk shows this week and I have been listening to a variety of dialogue, in the background, whilst I work.

THE FOLLOWING LETTER WAS POSTED BY OBIE ROBERTS OF THE NATIONAL  PROGRESSIVE INSTITUTE:

Nassau Guardian Oakes Field Nassau, The Bahamas. Dear Sir/Madam: I write to challenge the contents of your newspaper editorial column of January 13, 2015 To begin with, there are two credibility problems with the editorial. Firstly, the writer assesses the performance Prime Minister Christie in a vacuum and secondly so there is no perspective for the reader. Secondly, the writer failed to provide one scintilla of empirical data or evidence to support his or her opinions of or feelings for Mr. Christie and his government which calls into question the credibility of the writer and the writer’s work. Without the

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: INGRAHAM IS THE REAL HYPOCRITE

  Dear Editor, It was quite interesting to listen to the former Prime Minister make comments on the departure of Leo Ryan Pinder from the Cabinet of the Bahamas. Ingraham alluded to the fact that he finds it worrying to see that a Cabinet Minister would be allowed to leave the Cabinet and then be hired in the same sector for which he had responsibility around the table. Mr. Ingraham, in my opinion, has a short memory and must still be punch drunk from the vicious cut hip delivered to his failed government which had led the nation into to

Ingraham denied he interfered with the police investigation. Any attempt
