discount viagra unhealthy times;”>Jennifer Dotson is usually a reasoned and rational person so the country was surprised to hear her say in the face of a dispute between BTC workers and their employer over the pay packet and the fact that there are likely to be 140 layoffs come Monday 29th June from the phone company that it was time to close the country down.  That is an irresponsible statement and she should withdraw it.

Robbie Robbinson I worked at Credit Suisse for 15 years, viagra buy ambulance and diligently supported the FNM. The FNM government not only signed an onto an agreement that compromised our Off Shore Banking Sector, discount cialis pills but also allowed the US Govt a back door access to BTC platform to enable the recording of every phone conversation in the Bahamas. Our Bank was fined $9 billion by the US Govt, and the Bahamian Staff was in large numbers fired.
Thank you FNM.
