With Global Food Shortage Looming, Trindad Destroys 40 Acres of Food Crops

Is It That They Don't Believe The Food Experts At The World Bank Or Did Not Know?


Could you believe that there are still some people who are totally unaware of what is happening in the world?   It is unconscionable that anyone who labels themselves as a leader would indulge in such ignorant actions. 

The only conclusion that can be drawn is that these government “leaders”  are totally unaware of numerous international news reports of an impending global food shortage.   There's no other explanation. 
Without any forethought a few Trinidad and Tobago government officials authorized the distruction of local farmers produce.  Today's headlines "Food Face-Off - 40 acres of crops bulldozed to make way for houses".Read it here. This is total madness.  It was only last week that a daily newspaper headlined a story with a minister promising that agricultural squatters on state lands had full permission to maintain their crops.  What made the same government destroy harvest…

Can REDJET Crash?

Hopefully Not If You're Flying 
Recently, the Caribbean Blogger posted the announcement of RedJet Airone’s unbelievable low fare offer to islands in the Caribbean.   
Later this week, Trinidad and Tobago Transport Minister Jack Warner announced in a news conference that he knew nothing about the company or who allowed them permission to fly into Trinidad and Tobago.  
On face value, most citizens would think that the government minister was being over protective of their newest acquisition Caribbean Air Lines (CAL).   Jamaica has already banned Airone from operating within their territory.   
Below are some of the questions that arose from the research. Remember the saying that "if it looks to good to be true it probably is"”.  
One post we found asked some very unsettling questions that every passenger should get the answers to before they hop onboard a RedJet.  With respect to RedJet entering Trinidad and Tobago:
If the Transportation Minister did not authorize the airline to…

World Food Shortages To Affect The Caribbean & Other 3rd World Nations First

What Does It Mean To You?
People and governments in developing countries such as Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean should not ignore predictions the world’s food supply experts.   A crisis is looming and it portends the next significant global crisis. 
Food and Money
Let’s face it food is one of the basic consumables of the human species.  Air and water are the other two.  In a New York Times article, journalist Elisabeth Rosenthal  reported that according to the IMF the food price index is “the highest in 20 years of existence” 
.  Food however, is directly related to economics.  It is not so much the food shortage but high prices for food that will create the crisis.  To add to the madness some rich countries are creating a demand for biofuels and consuming a vast supply of cassava, corn, sugar and palm oil for conversion into biofuels.

A World Leader Most Embrassing Moment

Image
Thankfully, This Is Not Caribbean News, Just A Flaw In Human Nature Why would the leader of a country stoop so low?
This is a question only he can answer but even if he did to someone satisfaction, it raises other questions.
He's obviously suffers from kleptomania.  We say "suffer" because the embrassment is enough to make anyone squirm, moreso someone who at the time was repesenting an entire country.  When you think about how bad our Caribbean leaders behave be glad that they never do something like this.  It can bring shame to an entire nation.  But here are the questions...

After you view the video ask yourself:
Why did he do it when all he had to do was ask?
How did he feel when he saw himself on the news?
How would you feel if it was your Prime Minister?
Isn't this the stupidest thing you have ever seen?

Unless you speak Czech you will not understand a word in the video but you don't need to; the pictures tells it all.




Wah you think?

Was It Right To Fire Nizam Mohammed?

Was He a Sacrificial Lamb?

He was not fired for what he did but how and where he did it.

Nobody drops their pands and take a crap in the middle of Fredrick St at noon; not even a vagrant. And you certainly would not get away with it if you was recently found pissing on yourself on the Promonard.

To be honest red flags started flying from the minute the public found out that he would be appointed as the head of the Police Service Commission. The objection; he came with a party bias because he was a long standing member of the ruling UNC party. In fact, during the party’s previous reign he was appointed Speaker of the House.

Despite all objections he was nominated. The party stood by him. Prime Minister refused ot budge on his nomination and he was eventually appointed. The opposition maintained to call for his removal with very little affect. Then the incident with the police officers occurred in Port of Spain.

Is he a racist now? IMHO, not hardly.

Remember the saying: “…
