Barbados (Barbados Today) -To loud cheers and applause, hundreds of Guyanese welcomed President of Guyana David Granger to Bubba’s Sports Bar Sunday morning for a breakfast meeting before his return home.
Declaring, “it looked like Georgetown”, Granger said the meeting was an “act of thanksgiving” for the election of his Government in the May 11 vote.

Granger preached a message of integration, saying it was not an academic term.
Insisting that there was no difference between Barbadians and Guyanese, he urged Guyanese to embrace and be proud of the integration movement.

“We need the integration movement. If we are divided, people will pick us off one by one.
If we are divided, people are going to separate us,” he said, while boasting that Guyana had “enough room to accommodate its Caribbean neighbours and still have room left over.”

Granger promised that his government intended to fast track Guyana’s economic development so that the region could benefit.
“We are going to build one of the strongest economies in the world,” he said, noting that the country cannot do it without the help of its Caribbean neighbours.
Granger also promised the crowd that he would provide better representation for Guyanese abroad and he challenged them to invest more at home.
“We are going to control all of our resources and make sure that Guyanese will never have to be poor again.
We know there are issues affecting you and we have to give you better representation,” the President acknowledged.

    We are going to take control of our resources, our timber, our gold, our diamonds, our bauxite, our petroleum and make sure that Guyanese will never have to be poor again,” Granger said.

    Can’t wait to see this materialize!!!!!

    “We are going to take control of our resources, our timber, our gold, our diamonds, our bauxite, our petroleum and make sure that Guyanese will never have [the right] to be [rich] again,” Granger said.

    “Guyanese will rightfully return to being their massas’ slaves. It was, it is still a grave injustice for us Guyanese to be liberated and to be allowed to even partake of the discards of our forced labour,” squeaked uncle Tom to the snickering audience. “We Guyanese must continue to deprive ourselves and go hungry to prove our unfailing loyalty to massa’s overseer, Mr Hunt, whose image will serve as a constant reminder that we are indeed starving ourselves so that massa plate always remain full and overflowing,” continued uncle Tom, trying not to fall asleep while, at the same time, earnestly trying to attract the attention of the audience now fully engrossed in their smartphones.

      You would have been more convincing if you had been consistently saying the same BEFORE May 11.

    “We are going to take control of our resources,…”
    In 1971 DEMBA became GUYBAU
    In 1976 BSE and Jessels became GUYSUCO
    Etc., et al.
    Then there is Albert Einstein’s perspective on “Insanity”.
