Private jet, private money, private space in a drug country

Private jet, private money, private space in a drug country

The US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is a strange outfit. Only God can actually tell a Guyanese how the DEA operates with regard to its surveillance in Guyana. There are times you want to believe that Guyana is not on the DEA radar at all, or that the DEA has little interest in extirpating drug trafficking and money laundering in this country. It could be that the DEA is not the formidable and competent organization that the world thinks it is.

It’s another time of thanks. It’s another time to celebrate.

The history of thanksgiving is rooted in the fact that God allowed the Pilgrims to overcome a season of trials and tribulations that threatened their lives. What a signal to the nation.

As a Guyanese living in the United States, even though the historic narrative on which thanksgiving is premised does not relate to my culture, I must observe that thanksgiving has always been a part of the collective Guyanese reality. It has always been customary for us to give thanks for our victories small or large. We give thanks for the birth of babies. We give thanks for the union of souls in Holy Matrimony. We give thanks when we overcome health issues, academic pursuits, and all forms of family challenges. Continue reading
