• 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...

    A toast to the trinity who may cause the system to implode

    Donald Trump is in the White House, Marine Le Pen almost secured power in France and Angela Merkel looks like she should take the German federal elections.  All in all, things are looking pretty crappy, and that has me extremely happy. Now, please don’t get it twisted. It’s not that...

    Do we love our women?

    Life as a woman is not easy, and life as a woman in Jamaica is especially hard. This is a nation where we men claim to love women, but that, for the most part, is a lie. Proof of that can be seen in the actions that our men...

    If Jamaica is to truly fight crime

    Over the past year the nation has been hollering for action to stem the seemingly irreversible rise in crime. After years of seeing the crime rate (led by murders) decline – coincidentally after Dudus was extradited and a heavy military/police presence was evident – we have seen crime rise...

    Tax system is too corrupt!

      On the face of it, people really hate taxes, especially in Jamaica and similar countries where corruption is viewed as endemic. No one likes going to the pumps or supermarket and paying that GCT. We are especially upset when we see taxes attached to essential items such as...
