read, white and blah


been tough during the last few months… have things to live for but when I see the nonsense that keeps going on on a daily in sweet T&T i get more and more despondent…

if i dont have to work i stay indoors… i dont even like to visit my family for fear of being targeted simply because I am out and about… making rent has become a serious challenge and i truly wonder how many other people survive… may be a life of crime really does pay… just long enough for the dependents to lose their dependance…

its not fear but the harsh reality that i see everytime i observe the current state of the nation… PM PM, Mr. Big Stuff, MOWT Man and Mr. Cunt doh care bout me… dem bizness fix…

i prayed in the same line on Eid-ul-Fitr with Abdul-Hamid and then the flicking man go talk some $hit n Parliarment bout doing thing fuh we… wah d arse u do fuh me… my mudda an fadda pay tax fuh dey whole life… fill up d treasury like everybody else fuh allyuh to go and plunder it on what…

Smelter that isnt viable cause we eh have gas fuh the 20 years needed for it to be viable… while ignoring the environmental concerns…

Stadium… that eh necessary again… already had wah 5 that are underutilized…

d man from Petrotrin… a company that losing billions… and investing billions at the same time… say that they have proven reserves only fuh d nex 15 years… dat go take we to bout 2025… five years afta 2020… so in the nex 10 years d Govament hoping that all ah de money go be well spent…

i does keep hearing them say that they teaching people to fish… you know na… it better to teach tuh fish than give the fish… buh my arguement to that is that there even if i learn tuh fish all ah we cyar fish in d same pond… and what they doing now tuh ensure that it have fish… or will continue to have fish… yuh know nah fuh d future genahrationz…

the work i do does come and go real easy… a client go call u in d morning to say ting cancelled… they eh get enuff money fuh all ah dat… mind you some ah dem wah go HYATT… d most xpensive place in T&T… so that alone shows the mentality…

last ting is dat i see plenty collective bargaining agreements settling… da just telling me dat an election may be close by…

Steups… mess… outta meh head… frustrated…

and then Bas and PM PM go shake hands like everything honky dory… i done dey…

no i not talking bout the flag and the bogus figure that the MYSA release…

    How much you want to bet the didn’t agree on stuff like an age limit for presidents and prime ministers? and term limits?

    Wait…good thing I muslim…would so lose that one!

    Or how about us the people being able to have majority no-confidence votes to get rid of selected/all government members.
