Rank Hypocrisy

When it comes to hypocrisy-exposed, some of this nation’s religious and other so-called holy ones rank high.

A Day of Reckoning

The time is past urgent for the current administration to be up and doing with efforts designed to make the nation’s tax system more equitable. In addition, there is no doubt at all that the time is also past urgent for the government and people of the Bahamas to understand that each and every able […]

Law, ‘Order’ and Injustice

Anyone with an iota of good sense concerning the long history of policing in a society that was once slave-based and where in the aftermath of slavery, the constabulary’s focus was put on protecting the people who owned property.

A Nation in Denial

That these are hard times; that business as usual just would not do and that the Government of The Bahamas is cash-strapped should – when taken together – alert Bahamians to the looming reality that some who should be up and doing are mired in denial.

God Bless America

As the American people so proudly say in the preamble of their Constitution:- “…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness…” The American people in all their vaunted […]

Ominous Signs of The Times

We suspect that there are people out there whether in the middle classes, the serried ranks of the so-called working poor or for that matter, among people living and working in so-called ‘Haitian’ villages, who are battling their way through these hard times. There are all those other people who cling to the now worn-out […]
