to tax or not to tax- that’s not even a question

American politicians run from the ‘t-word’ like its an unwanted babymother.  Taxes.  So many politicians have won or lost their jobs based on that concept.  And every politician who has won his job based on ‘no new taxes’, have lied.  Just like the republicans are openly lying now.   Taxes are inevitable.  The ‘father of […]

Does superior father general Richard Ho Lung deserve a pass?

Jamaica is celebrating its 50th year of Independence… an important milestone no doubt, but one which despite the celebrations, is fraught with self-doubt regarding our development.  We aren’t where we should be and not sure what to expect in an uncertain future.  If there is a time Jamaicans really need a pick me up, then […]

The fix is in. Obama wins in November

    If you are a democrat right now you should be laughing like hell.  If you are a republican, you’d have to be crying yourself to sleep every night.  The republican primaries, the circus that just keeps on giving Obama the election. Let me reiterate a couple things.  Romney is going to represent the […]

Recycling through the trash

    The year where the world is predicted to come to a crashing end, is about to begin.  Perhaps absolutely fitting for not only this column, but for the political happenings of both Jamaica and the United States. Jamaicans, as I write this, are having their vote, and one cannot help the futility of […]

The king is dead, long live the king.

If there’s one thing sure to get a slightly vegetative Jamaican blogger out of his slumber, its the Bruce Golding’s announcement of his intention of early resignation as party leader and Jamaica’s prime minister. There is very little to analyse about this, unless one wants to look at the Golding years (forgettable), or post-Golding Jamaica. […]

The Brits are (becoming?) racists

I’ve been waiting for and seeing interesting fallouts from the recent British riots.  Two of the more interesting consequences are whom the establishment and media continue to blame, and the actions taking in the aftermath. As told in my last blog ‘London Bridge is burning down”, the first persons to be blamed were black people, […]

London Bridge is burning down…

There are several interesting things about the recent riots in England, one of which is the propaganda campaign run by the conservative government.  That is, to make the riots seem much different to what they are, and to cover up what is going on in that country. The first reports attempted to colour the riots […]

I do drugs

Recently I was talking to someone and the subject of marijuana came up.  This person claimed that they didn’t rationalize marijuana as a drug.  An old argument that I have heard ad nauseum, and I can empathise. I support at least the de-criminalising of the weed.  When you look at it, there are far worse […]
