Guyana: The U.S. report on the local judiciary – The Truth is Out

  • Judiciary are saturated with troubling breaches of law, procedures, and character.

The wealth gap is an understatement – Commentary

The wealth gap is an understatement, for that differential between haves and have-nots can no longer be confined to a mere gap. The stark reality is that it is more of a wealth ocean in vastness, a separate planet all by itself. Gap does not begin to capture the hard disparities.

According to the 2018 report from the Billionaire Bonanza, as published by the Institute for Policy Studies and carried online by Yahoo Finance on April 26, in America, the land of unlimited opportunity and dreams, three family dynasties – the Waltons of Walmart supermarket fame, the Koch Brothers with diversified businesses, and the Mars family, makers of the candy with the same name, together possess and control “a staggering US$348.7 billion in assets as of October 2018”.          Continue reading

On April 20, 1999, two students of Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., shot and killed 12 other students and one teacher and wounded 23 others before shooting each other dead. On Dec. 14. 2012, a 20-year-old man shot and killed 20 students and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. On Feb. 14, 2018, a former student at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Broward County, shot and killed 17 students and staff and wounded 17 others.

It is highly debatable whether any of these mass murders would have been prevented if teachers had been armed. Still, the geniuses who dominate Florida’s government believe that they should be and they are passing a law to that effect, over the objections of students at Douglas High and others. Arming teachers serves only to increase the sale of guns and boost the profits of firearms manufacturers. There are roughly 175,000 teachers in just over 4,200 public schools. The average cost of a handgun is about $350. That works out to about $61 million.
