Editor of The Nassau Guardian is left speechless as Bahamian women are treated as second-class citizens, while numbers bosses parade around town, and the PLP says nothing about it.
Is the Christie administration really putting the interests of Bahamians first, or only selected interests?
Many of those who voted in support of the PLP in the last elections are already regretting their vote as they witness discrimination, victimization and backroom deals on oil drilling and gambling.
A letter to the editor of the local media shows that many of those supporting a referendum on gambling are using fool’s logic to convince themselves that it is the right path to take.
I find it hard to see how a person can argue that people should not be prohibited from gambling based on moral considerations and at the same time support other prescriptive or prohibitive laws (like marriage laws) that are also based on moral considerations.
Given that this is a debate on the numbers business it is ironically fitting that the government’s statements seem less like a serious policy discussion and more like a confidence or shell game.
President of the Bahamas Christian Council urged the spineless, cowardly leaders of the country to state their positions on the legalization of gambling and take responsibility on the issue.
Prime Minister Perry Christie is getting set to repay the mafia kingpins who run the illegal numbers racket for their generous contributions to his campaign.
Numbers kingpins in Belize sold a national lottery on the basis that it would solve the country’s economic problems, but like so many states in the U.S. learned… that is a lie.
