Such well-intentioned and seemingly objective science is actually a new chapter in a politicized and bigoted history of drug science in the United States. Different-looking brains tell us literally nothing about… Continue reading How Neuroscience Reinforces Racist Drug Policy

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

The reason BTL was Nationalized?

I told you all back then and I'll keep saying it.. The issue was never about nationalization as in making it for the people, initially I thought it was just to get to slip a backdoor into the Constitution to give the politicians in Government all power but it seems it goes way beyond that.… Continue reading The reason BTL was Nationalized?

The system really has not served us except for the very beginning extending a bit into a decade or so after Independence. If we look around at how our nation has been served we can clearly see that only politicians, their families, friends and special interest groups have really been served.When a system is created… Continue reading Thought of the day 05-13-13
