Oh the pain that is free speech

. . .Or in other words, why people don't like to be criticised or told they've done the wrong thing.

A little overview. This poster used to be part of a Facebook political advocacy group called "Supertrini" The ideas were noble, but in the end personal ambitions of a few turned it into a personal pulpit. Those that dissented were removed, like this pooor chap. His ORIGINAL post, I remember concerned the use of the group to discredit one political party over another by using slander. I won't go into the details, suffice to say it had to do with the following:
  1. Voter padding in the UNC internal election
  2. The status of the COP as a bona fide party
  3. personal feelings about all of the above by the "moderators" of this "group"
Well I'll just post up the screen shot and then you'll see what I am saying.




In all honesty NOONE individual was attacked, by deleting the post the poster was left with no defense. In the end it just made these "moderators" look like the fools that they so hate in government.

Suffice to say the person in question was ejected from this group for speaking his mind and standing up for what was right. This is what our country has become, a place where dissent is not encouraged and people tow the line!

But now that the election is over. . . every dog will have his day.

This is for you "Super" Trini.

The House that God+Manning building

This is interesting:


For those of you who DON'T know, it was revealed during the debate over the new The Trinidad and Tobago Revenue Authority Bill, 2010 (A vield attempt really to fire ALL of the customs and excise, immigration officials and Interal Revenue employees (AND Union card holders) from these departments to create a NEW Semi-Private and OUTSOURCED body called. . . yeah . . . the T&T Revenue Authority!) But I digress. The Hounourable member for Chaguanas West Mr A Jack Warner, produced a nice photo of this in-famous church up in Guanapo basically asking the Prime Minister, if Shanghai Construction Limited (a darling of the beleaguered UDECOTT) was being PAID by our OWN Government to construct this church.

Now the local Regional Corporation, who basically give "permission" for ANY building to be constructed in the Tunapuna/Piarco area, has said that they are "putting a hold on construction." Well you read the article yourself and you decide. . .

There's a LOT more to this than meets the eye and I'll speak my mind on this a little later as more info develops.

BTW. The woman in CHARGE of the church is known as the PM's personal seer and she USED to be married to Benny Hinn, the evangelical who a few years ago warned the world that the PM is not the nice person he makes everyone believe he is. Well shit, he's a politician and PNM-ite! What do you expect!?

BY the way, by the time I got to finishing this post, 67% of people polled on CNC3 (local TV station) did not agree with the PM's explanation. . . I've got to find that explanation somewhere and post it. . . if only to show that we've got a religious nut running our country. . .

My first post

Here's where its gets interesting. What the hell am I writing about? Who would care? I think in the end no one really, but it gets it off my chest.

Firstly MOST of this blog would be political in nature. Speaking about the nonsense that's going in my pat of the world, my small corner.

The grammar may be bad and the spelling even worse, at times, but that's because we're all so fraking busy! So don't judge me on that.

Needless to say, if you DO read my posts. Thanks and please DO come back often (HEY that's what RSS feeds are for!)

I also have a fan page on Facebook and these posts will be going there as well. So lets begin

"Louis! Let's broaden our minds. . ."
