The Minister did not speak the truth to the media when he said the government never came up with the new cruiser fees for pleasure boats.

It is the single most promising question a Bahamian can ask. It is a question that for many represents their weariness with submission to the five-year classical conditioning cycle Bahamians thus far have fallen in line with.
The government of The Bahamas is making itself an enemy of our state of being, depriving us of ownership in our economy (BTC), weakening our border protection (Defence Force redeployment) and threatening our livelihood by implementing Value Added Tax (VAT).
I am a Bahamian whose national pride has been interrupted… interrupted by a group commonly referred to as the government, who in just 13 short months, has managed to set our country back many years.
While government employees and government bills remain unpaid, we taxpayers have reportedly paid out almost $1.5 million for the government’s two most recent sets of smoke and mirrors – their NIB report and their shambolic Gaming Bill.
The worst crime levels in The Bahamas are not of murder, attempted murder or armed robbery. And the worst assault taking place in our communities is not at the hands of street thugs or gangsters.
It is my hope that in the future, Bahamians will stop being lazy in their democracy, get their minds right and vote according to issues, facts and knowledge.
Poor education is the reason many of us are making personal life decisions that keep us in poverty and servitude. When your thinking is low, so shall your position in life be.
Who lied to you and told you as Bahamians that we need to sit and wait for a general election to let the government of the day know what we want and what we feel about their governance?
