THE LANGUAGE OF LANGUAGE

THE LANGUAGE OF LANGUAGE

By EWALT AINSWORTH                          03 18 2012

The life and lifestyles of rural and plural Guyanese has been reduced to the lowest common denominator; good means bad and bad means good.  Right now we have a good good government and all the PPP sharing to capars is bad bad deals, ideas and tremendous lowra.  The language is bad and the outcomes terrible.  There is not a replacement reservoir or talent pool to draw on.  FREEDUMB house has run out of steam and has squandered the money and missed great opportunities to retrieve disaffected Guyanese who migrated.  This Easter would see a steady flow of traffic with remigrants; they come to spend time.  They spending what they don’t have and come to transfer out their social security, pensions and monies from the genip tree, the breadfruit tree, and coconut that falling bip-bap and biddip-bap all over the land.

GT types not grating coconut any more.  They cooking with coconut milk from East Asia because they do not want to damage their finger nails.  They also are not washing their hair because of the fancy hairdo and they are not cooking crab and callaloo unless it comes in a can.  The food chain has changed and so too is the language.  The good virtues have become bad and the bad things have become good.  ASOMELYKAM.       Continue reading

Dennis Humphrey

Dennis Humphrey, a former Guyana national soccer star and a hot item on the social scene in Ottawa, Canada will be laid to rest over this coming weekend.  His life has been compromised even though he had put up a gallant battle; his death was swift but not unexpected as he was diagnosed terminally ill with an exceptionally rare form of cancer.

Dennis was an immigrant of sheer class and nuff-styles.  Tantalise was his shtick.  He always took control and was extremely knowledgeable and braggadocio about sports and international politics.  He always cautioned those he rubbed shoulders with to “think outside of the box.  Do not find me obtrusive that he may be thinking as we speak inside the box                 Continue reading

NOUVEAU POOR

NOUVEAU POOR

By EWALT AINSWORTH                      03 05 2012

GT has devolved to such a stage that the caregivers, teachers, masons, farmers,  therapists, cops and field workers of yesteryear are the forgotten indigent;  the well have become  sick as they look down their nose and elbow their way into a certain illusive and delusive dream state.

Guyanese have lost tolerance for each other and the Phagwah message should be about sharing the wealth and make sure it trickles down to the politically engineered poor…the nouveau poor.

Some say that Guyana like a breadfruit tree; breadfruit trees are prolific bearers.  In this instance, the country is reproducing more poor people than they can count.  All the folks of child bearing age have moved on while the children of the migrant workers and their parents are left to scrounge in this guava season.  Very prominent people who had jobs, land, and money in the bank, great vacations with pay and second mortgages, have fallen flat on their faces.
