The Alternative struggle in Belize

I talk to Belizeans on the ground every day and the one thing that is certain in all the discussions is that they want a serious Alternative, not a bunch of individual units working together under a common idea. Belizeans see that as a larger more spread out version of the two party system. Currently… Continue reading The Alternative struggle in Belize

BELIZE NATIONAL ANTHEM

O, Land of the free by the Carib Sea, Our manhood we pledge to thy liberty No tyrants here linger, despot must flee This tranquil haven of democracy The blood of our sires which hollows the sod, Brought freedom from slavery oppression's rod By the might of truth and the grace of God. No longer… Continue reading BELIZE NATIONAL ANTHEM

Commentary: The ICJ and the Belize-Guatemala issue: A den of strategy and deceit

This past week the government of Belize (GOB) launched its “(mis)education campaign” involving the push to take the matter of Guatemala’s unfounded claim on Belize’s sovereign territory to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for a supposed “final determination”. I have pulled no punches in terms of my assessment as to why those vested with… Continue reading Commentary: The ICJ and the Belize-Guatemala issue: A den of strategy and deceit

On discussing part of our path to the ICJ

I had this discussion on Facebook with some friends about one part of the Belize - Guatemala claim and going to the ICJ.  My concern here is more to the point of we have never taken this issue to any legal body before. Cayo Buay SO, I keep hearing of all these cases and such… Continue reading On discussing part of our path to the ICJ

On Belize vs Guatemala at ICJ

For several reasons, I vote… NO! Amidst the hustle and bustle of trying to convince people either way on this issue, some things are being left out that I think are important factors that the people MUST know ahead of any other words that they would be listening to. Here are some: Why do we… Continue reading On Belize vs Guatemala at ICJ

Thought for the day 01-10-13

We want ___________ !   We want ___________ !   We want ___________ !  How about "I will do something so that we can have what we want" for a change? If we keep submitting to others to give us what we want, we will always be slaves. Bob Marley said in a song: "Neva mek a… Continue reading Thought for the day 01-10-13

A fight to make us, well, Belize.  Today, the reason for the day has all but vanished into the shadows of the carnival and the celebrations, bram… Continue reading As we celebrate the holidays

Start to be free

Some people need to have stuff like these in their lives to function. Instructions on what to do, when to do and how to do it. For as far back as I can remember this has been the norm of sort, especially when it comes to making political decisions. We need to start moving away… Continue reading Start to be free

Why are we afraid of speaking up?

Today more than even it is evident that what is right is no longer going to be what is said or done for the most part. Why is that so? For decades we have been and continue to be brainwashed into thinking that unless we are following the tide of what is considered "NORMAL" that… Continue reading Why are we afraid of speaking up?

What’s the Deal?

Mere weeks after a national election, it is well for us to stop for a moment and analyze calmly and without prejudice the effect on our Nation of a victory by either of the major political parties. The problem of the electorate is far deeper, far more vital than the continuance of the representation and/or… Continue reading What’s the Deal?

Politcs in Belize – The flawed design process

I see Politics in Belize like a construction project.. Currently Political manifestos promise to build you a HUGE mansion, but they only plan for the foundation. They take 5 years to build part of the foundation then election time comes around... 1. The same party wins They promise you another HUGE mansion, but again they… Continue reading Politcs in Belize – The flawed design process

The main problem with elections in Belize is this..

People pay more attention to who they vote for on KTV Latino or other such shows in Belize than they do the politicians that will either build or destroy the nation once they get into office.

My Brain, It Wonders

Notice the trend for the last 30 plus years of politics in Belize.... Manifestos generally carry a lifespan of 5 years or less. There are rarely any plans made for Belize that one can really say will need a couple decades to work on and accomplish. Why is that? I think that a manifesto that… Continue reading My Brain, It Wonders

It’s all in the planning you know

I am of the opinion that our politicians have the mentality of 5 year terms. I only plan for the 5 years I will serve. We need to start thinking long term goals. I want to hear solutions that we can run with for the next 50 years. Build a new football stadium, Develop teen… Continue reading It’s all in the planning you know
