trickonomics 101

10 September, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

you come to Parliament for a couple of years in a row and allocate about 9 billion extra to each budget and end up with 3 billion ‘in savings’ each time…

you then have a deficit that has yet to be calculated… estimated to be around 8 billion….

you then submit a budget that includes a deficit of 7 billion…

a budget based not on the real value of the oil & gas prices that T&T collects at the pumps/well head… U$55 for Oil and U$2.75 for Gas… more like U$1.50 if we lucky…

you plan to borrow on the local and international market… and not touch the Heritage & Stabalisation Fund… because in reality it can only sustain the country for about 3 months… that’s what i’ve been told… by you…

you want to continue with the Steel Plant… and Smelter… talking about “the EMA needs to act faster so that construction can begin so that we can sell the Gas” to these folks… but wait… we are paying for the construction of these plants… so we spending money on a steel plant… wasnt there a steel plant in Trinidad before and it closed its doors because operating expenses were too high… no worries… allyuh know best…

back to the oil… Mr.Big Stuff said on radio yesterday that Petrotrin is not efficient and well essentially should be shutdown… please do… you guys rushed to do the same for Caroni 1975 Ltd. and BWIA… and they weren’t losing 15+ billion a year… no I have no facts… check the auditors report for yuhself… so you could close down Petrotrin and give all the workers land and housing… probably the housing that some of the Caroni workers still waiting on… meanwhile SUGAR is now KING.. and well we does buy we own from Guyana who suffering from a drought right now and while they could start to prepare the fields for cane… if it eh rain they wont have sugar to reap anyway…

oh and we gonna buy some more water taxis and install new berths/hubs… one in Point Fortin and another in Cocorite… WTF! Cocorite? to go where to Port-of-Spain… its like 10 minutes away… your loading time is longer than that… yeah yeah yeah… there is alot of traffic heading in and out of the westside in the morning/evening but i doh think is d ppl of Cocorite that causing it… is probably the family of four who sees the need for all members to drive their own car to work by themselves… well gosh I hate to drive home in traffic so I does go and lime on the avenue for a five… how about a water taxi that goes up the Diego Martin river all they way up to Blue Basin… now that makes more sense doesn’t it…

but why worry with water taxis if you already have plans for the Rapid Rail? the same Rapid Rail that Genivar doing feasabliity study for… and design… and whatever else… how many billions gone into that project so far… oh yeah one good thing is that you could use our Gas to fuel the train… well i mean for the Electric Power Plant thats being built next to the smelter… and what about Inncogen (now known as Trinity Power) how they fitting into this Power Generation for the Rapid Rail…

well this all this development we’ll surely need water to wash everything… so bring on the desalination plants… please ensure that you destroy as much recreation coastline as possible ala Vessigny because once I have clean water to bathe in i eh care to take any sea bath… you does need to wash off after anyway… well i do…

while you doing all these things right… i would like to thank you for making available to me the wider highways and byways… I’ve only been asking for some of them about two decades now… i see that you need more roadways to catch more unruly drivers to fine them with the new rates… meanwhile I can continue to ‘break’ red lights for the same TT$200… no matter right because your plan it to build more overpasses… a measure that I applaud… I would also like to commend you in your acquisition of new buses to add to the existing fleet… about 400 in total it should be soon enough… i will no longer have to travel with those nasty MaxiTaxis who like to only go short… who cares if they actually work a route and I have to guess when the next bus is coming…

oh gosh i now ketch mefself i was supposed to be talking about ecomonics and i gone on and on all of these things… well as you can see… we only spending money and not really generating any because all of these things are just plans… we expanding the road network while at the same time looking to take vehicles off the road with WaterTaxis, RapidRail and Buses… all based on inflated Oil & Gas prices… Gas that not selling and Oil that not pumping… efficient enough…

so continue to build your tall buildings and stadia all over the island… while you keep renting half of the capital city… and expect to get all of your money from traffic offenders and rum drinkers… continue to pay lip service to everything else… agriculture… culture… the people… some of who put you there… good thing i have something like a two year lease on this apartment but at the end of 2010 i wonder what the landlord gonna be calling for rent…

so i gonna study less about you and more about me… cause I looking to go by NEDCO and borrow a quarter of a million to invest in a car seat business… or maybe a tint shop… anyone who has any other viable ideas please let me know because I still working for RENT!

PS thanks for allocating more money to the whole of Tobago than all of the Local Govt/Regional Corporations… i know where to go when i get flood out… oh i live upstairs… is the ppl that illegally selling alcohol opposite that does get flood out… who say CRIME doh pay… i could get 3 DVDs fuh TT$10 een dat shop eh…
