During primary school years, my aunt and I listened to the debates on the radio. I was tasked to write the “big words.” Later, we would fetch a dictionary to get the word meanings. Those were days when people actually spoke. Can’t even let your kids listen to that crap nowadays. It’s loaded with bad grammar, spoonerisms, eh, doh, extreme fillers…ad nauseam.
Word to the wise, if you want the best for your kids, keep them away from listening to that crap. It only creates regression.
For the first time I was reading at ‘who’s who’ for the debates today, I noticed something which I find strange, can someone tell me why the office of the Minister for Housing and Local Government is situated within the Office of the Prime Minister?
is this to watch over the P.M., to spy over him, believing in the lac of confidence in him or what? if anything, I wouldn’t find it strange if the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office was so located and even then, I wouldn’t find it proper. In the Cabinet there is a former P.M., would he dare come close – no way, no trust in him or is it no confidence, not qualified? Its just an observance, and by the way, complete the construction of the brand new world class Hospital in the South. I pray for ‘wisdom for all those concerned’.
People vehicles that they work so hard for, they didn’t get contracts under any government or do bobol of any kind to get them…they worked hard for them and the roads of this country are destroying them every day. No relief, nothing for those people. Yet, this government can find money to create position in Canada to employ an entitled hack but can’t repair roads for the people who put them in power. They can find money to give despicable roro post in Miami again but no money to finish St. Jude’s. Young people are given a 6 for a 9 with their proposals and ideas being used for other persons to get a cut! So much for youth economy and putting you first. Contracts are still being handed out to incompetent contractors despite many failings on their part because no one is holding those getting a cut from it responsible. Y’all talk all y’all talk in opposition but all the people who y’all say was doing bobol in the ministries and handing out contracts to contractors who fix their homes still there. Regret my vote. Useless bunch!
