  • Yes Jamaica sucks, but we’re not all that bad

    This may come as a surprise to those (few) persons who read what I post, but Jamaica actually isn’t doing badly. Now, before you start thinking that I have been smoking something and am somewhere in La La land, you have to understand just what I mean when I...

    Conquering our personal Everests is our choice

    The world can seem to be an awful place at times. The young die early, the good suffer while the bad, it seems, live happy and contented lives. Those who try to make it from the bottom seem to always end up shafted by the system and the beasts...

    THE WORLD IS LOOKING A BIT DARKER

    The world is a funny old place.  One hundred years ago a war was fought primarily in Western Europe to stop an imperial upstart (Germany) from becoming too powerful. Some 70-odd years ago, yet another war was fought (in almost exactly the same places) to stop the resurgent Germany...

    Stand with Venezuela or be torn apart alone

    Venezuela is in flames, with almost daily protests both for and against the government, severe food shortages and an economy in free fall.  We see a once proud and strong nation now on its knees. We see where a democratically elected president is being called a dictator (with one...
