Just when you think people can’t get more dumb…

When I read some dumb comment online, I often pass it off that some jerk just wants to be noticed and isn’t really serious.  When the same comment is in the media, then I think that it is often a ratings push.  That guy really didn’t believe the crap he is saying. Take this thing […]

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.

Of state repression and class apartheid

The People’s National Party was vindicated on their position regarding the extension of the State of Emergency, with the unfortunate but brutally public extra-judicial killing of Ian Lloyd in Buckfield, St Ann.  Yet, it is more than distressing how many people rush to qualify and condone the murder. No matter what Lloyd did, no matter […]

Rednecks of Uptown

I spent a few days in Jamaica recently at the time the extension for the State of Emergency (SoE) failed to pass in parliament.  The reaction to the failure clearly indicates the mounting class divisions in the society. Where is Michael Manley when we need him? It is clear that ‘It’s not black man time […]
