GTM OFFICAL PLAYING ON THE WRONG TEAM & THEME

GTM OFFICAL PLAYING ON THE WRONG TEAM & THEME

By EWALT AINSWORTH                         05 15 2012

The recovery of the white TOYOTA Sprint car owned by deceased  GTM executive Lionel Whyte is now giving clarity to the suspected alternative life style.  Official reports are suggesting that he may have been playing for the wrong social team and pursuing gay paramours.

Mr. Whyte is originally from Bush Lot, West Berbice  (Region Five) and his car was found Thursday night a half an hour away in Stanleytown, New Amsterdam., Region Six.  Tiger Bay residents are pissed and feel that they are being indemnified and identified as criminals when they are just as innocent as every other ethnic enclave.  They were the first to suggest that Mr. Whyte was playing for the wrong team and theme.     Continue reading

PHILIP A UNIVERSAL FILIP

PHILIP A UNIVERSAL FILIP

By EWALT AINSWORTH                  05 17 2012

It is now official:  Sir Paul Anthony, Guyana’s Culture Minister has flatly denied the formal request from the grieving Moore family and are reluctantly giving tacit support to “a big funeral” for fallen Guyanese philanthropist, psychologist and patriot/artist Dr Phillip Moore.

In a verbal statement on Friday, the Culture Minister sad that Philip’s cork duck and even though he empathises, his heroic and sterling contribution to global art, peace and prosperity does not necessarily qualify him Dr Moore for a state funeral.

The family, the joint opposition, Berbicians-en-masse, Guyanese in the Diaspora and citizens at-large are protesting electronically and verbally about the PPP’s decision to permit this noble citizen to depart without fanfare or overt participation.

Dr Moore will be buried on Tuesday in Auchlyne, a proverbial spit from the Port Mourant birth place of deceased PPP’s original leader, Dr Cheddie Jagan.

Both these two statesmen, even though in different chosen fields, were passionate about the plight of the right and the current PPP has made all that they both seemed to strive for, derelict and futile.

Elder Philip Moore may have withdrawn from public life in his later years but never withdrew or withheld his sterling self and contribution to the greater cause of humanity.  He died this week at age 90 surviving two of his five children and a whole succession of artists, sculptors, musicians, preachers, teachers, believers, heathens and gentiles alike.  Elder Philip was a fillip in his life and time both at home and abroad.

Elder Moore did not have a hateful bone in his body nor a tortuous muscle.  He did what he liked and did not look for earthly rewards.  He always worked with his hands and his mind was a barometer and informer.  He was self taught in a multiplicity of skills and talents and if we were to do a comparative study and attach a label, he was the dalai lama of the Corentyne, Berbice, Guyana the region and the world.               Continue reading

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BERIL AND A SWEETMAN

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BERIL AND A SWEETMAN

CARICOM nationals particularly Jamaicans are setting their GPS systems to the gold mining fields of Guyana after a 20 year hiatus.  These folks from the region who for more than 30 years were encouraged by a previous administration to settle and work panning for gold and planting yams and eddoes by the mountain sides are coming back.

Brazilians are coming too in twice as large numbers and are bringing with them sophisticated equipment and facilities and easy access to food.  These are things the government should be doing but rather the GT pork knockers had to go out there and solicit help.  The government to save face, is handing out and processing at a faster clip licences and work permits.     Continue reading

PPP Govt.’s illegality continues unabated – letter

PPP Govt.’s illegality continues unabated

May 13, 2012 | By |  Letters
 Dear Editor,
Notwithstanding all the mouthings of President Ramotar, and Finance Minister, Ashni Singh, and CEO Mr Brassington, such will never legalise the illegality about the activities of NICIL.
Quite frankly, the whole of Guyana is now aware of the scampishness and skullduggery being carried on when NICIL’s Directors and officers fail to deposit its Revenues into the Consolidated Fund.
The starting point is Article 216 of the Constitution which states that all monies raised or received by Guyana are to be paid into the Consolidated Fund. And this is how it should be in a normal, regular democracy.   Continue reading

US ONE WEEK SCHOLARSHIP FOR RAMOTAR

US ONE WEEK SCHOLARSHIP FOR RAMOTAR

At least Guyanese at home this mother’s day will not have to worry about President Donald Ramotar making an impromptu visit or stopping in to empathise with flood victims in Lethem.  Residents of Region nine…Upper Takatu/Upper Essequibo  have to use their own initiative and bail as  flood-waters from the higher elevations of Brazil wash away their homes, cut electricity supplies and road transportation while the President rushes to save his face in North America.  The people indigenous people in the Rupununi came out in wholesale numbers to support the APNU/AFC and so there is no love lost at this time.  Perhaps if even they burn in hell, Ramotar ent kay.               Continue reading

Chocolates, cognac, cherries and cosmetics are things mothers take delight in.  Get her some or all of the above and you may stay free.  One mom in particular, who asked all her children to come together and buy her a RANGE ROVER, got the shocking surprise of her life.  The girls, all college graduates, instead pooled and bought her five different AMTRAK return tickets with a sticky note that said: ROVE THE LAND.  They also sent her a discount coupon for a cleaning company to clear her head, living room, bottom bed, kitchen and coop.         Continue reading
