BAHAMAS – we need a soul check. For the last several weeks, I watched my country at the hands of its government, go to and fro about an incident of gross abuse our government knew happened on Bahamian soil to human beings – not to inanimate objects, not to objects with no soul – to living, breathing human beings.

When incidents of unlawful abuse or the like happen while in the custody of the State/Government, the State is always responsible – there is and never can be a just separation. In mature democracies where the rule of law, human rights and accountability actually matter, the government officials with responsibility for the areas affected would have quickly and publicly accepted responsibility for the abuses such as those that took place at the Detention Center.

The Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas spoke this week on the current Cuban detainees controversy, telling the country he leads that he is both “worried” and “concerned” about our nation’s reputation – a reputation that has once again become tarnished in large part by the actions of one of his Ministers – Ministers he ought to keep in check as head of the Cabinet.

Just As I Told You – The Gov’t Willfully Mislead The Country About Our Ambassador to the U.S

STOPTHELIESTo my readers – Didn’t I tell you this is what happened, that the government (as it finally announced today) withdrew Dr. Elliston Rahming’s name from consideration for Ambassador to the United States from months ago, but didn’t tell the public or media? I first wrote about this withdrawal via my Facebook blog in late May/early June. My last post on this was back on July 12 where I said: Continue reading

For now, I’ll skip the obvious elephant in the room of the nation having no clue whatsoever about who and how private owners will enter a “restructured” BEC and submit this:

Anyone in The Bahamas who has already sipped the kool-aid about the out-of-the-blue privatization of BEC and how this is supposed to magically translate into lower energy costs simply because parts would be privately owned, needs to travel to Grand Bahama and ask residents how “low” their power bills are from the 100% privately owned Grand Bahama Power Company.

Several days ago, a single mother walked into a tire shop in search of a used tire. She knew what the cost of a used tire had always been so she thought she knew how much she would have to spend.

But the wind was knocked out of her when the retailer told her the cost of the tire. She hadn’t planned on coming up with that extra money but what else could she do? She needed the tire for her car. Continue reading

Killarney MP Dr. Hubert Minnis can return to the Monday, August 12 scheduled sitting of Parliament and be within the rules of Parliament in doing so – and that is because contrary to what everyone is being told, the Speaker failed to follow House rules regarding the naming and suspension of a Member, and thus in fact failed to have the Member suspended from the Parliament.
