There is no wall big enough to solve this problem.

by Joseph E. Stiglitz – Vanity Fair

Lurking beneath all the troubling questions about Donald Trump — would he really try to renegotiate the national debt? Would he really build a wall between Mexico and the United States? Would he really try to prevent Muslims from entering the country? Would he really encourage other countries to develop nuclear weapons?

lies an even more fundamental question: Can he possibly find the thousands of people he needs to perform the most basic task of government, which is, after all, to govern? It is a truism that governing a country is different from running a business. It’s also a truism that no business is even close to the size and complexity of the federal government.    Continue reading

WITH THE VALUE OF THE POUND DIPPING FOLLOWING BREXIT, BRITISH TRAVELLERS WILL HAVE TO SPEND MORE TO GO ON VACATION IN BARBADOS AND ANALYSTS SAY THIS WILL IMPACT UK TOURISTS NUMBERS.

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Thursday July 21, 2016 – Just the idea of sitting on a sunny beach on Barbados is likely enough to warm any Brit’s heart. But with the cost of actually making the trip now more expensive for them, following a plunge in the value of the pound sterling on the heels of the United Kingdom’s decision to leave Europe, a dream may be all some can afford.    Continue reading

Clinton’s F-You to Progressives: This is How Trump Could Become President

Clinton’s F-You to Progressives: This is How Trump Could Become President

Nominating a political clone like Sen. Tim Kaine is exactly the wrong thing to do if you want a higher turnout

 Here’s what Hillary Clinton’s selection of Tim Kaine as her VP tells us:
  • She suffers from a possibly fatal mix of arrogance and political cluelessness that may well hand the election to Trump;
  • She is totally beholden to the Oligarchy she claims to want to reign in;
  • She’s not a progressive – and her so-called leftward “evolution” on issues was a calculated, cynical and clumsy attempt to neutralize Sanders.   Continue reading

In early June 2016, the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) was back with us as the matches begun at Warner Park in St. Kitts, and the second one, with Guyana’s Amazon Warriors meeting the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots, was a thriller. Guyana put the Patriots in to bat and ended up needing 30 runs from the last three overs for the win. In the end, Jason Mohammed hit the two runs needed for the win on the second-to-last ball off a very difficult dropped catch by duPlessis.

The CPL, which is reportedly drawing considerable attention worldwide, seems to be picking up where it left off last year, with an array of international names sprinkled among the teams in the tournament and that mix, adroitly combined by the organisers with the attractive ingredients of Caribbean culture, has created an event that is attracting a range of patrons, including tourists, as well as various prominent sponsors.   Continue reading
