Things eh perfect. But...It could always be worse. Happy Independence to all.
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

 Aye plenty talk about protecting and respecting our democracy this Independence day. If we are serious about protecting our democracy then consultations on real Constitution reform (not this gimmick that was rushed into law by the PM) will address the fact how easily it is for any government to make such drastic changes to how we elect our Parliament reps with a simple majority.

Quote


“On that fateful day in 1962, the man who steered our nation to Independence, our first prime minister, Dr Eric Williams, addressed the people saying “The first responsibility that devolves upon you is the protection and promotion of your democracy. Democracy means more, much more, than the right to vote and one vote for every man and every woman of the prescribed age. Democracy means recognition of the rights of others.
“Democracy means equality of opportunity for all in education, in the public service, and in private employment—I repeat, and in private employment. Democracy means the protection of the weak against the strong. Democracy means the obligation of the minority to recognise the right of the majority,” Rowley said.

Quote
“The protection and promotion of our democracy and our dig­nity will depend on the positions we take and the resilience we display during this critical period in our nation’s history.”
These were the words of Toba­go House of Assembly (THA)Chief Secretary Orville London, in his Independence Day message yesterday.
“The present issues facing the island and the country are not just the concern and the respon­si­­bility of the politicians, the inte­rest groups and the more vocal members of the public.
“This is the time, in the midst of the crises that now beset our island and our country, for all of us to reflect on the words of the ‘Father of the Nation’ and to step up to the Independence plate.”

Hope everyone enjoy the holiday

"United at home in the common effort to build a democratic Nation and ostracize outmoded privileges, let us present to the outside world the united front of a Nation thinking for itself, knowing its own mind and speaking its own point of view" - Dr Eric Williams

How could it be a happy independence and we have 260 murders. No. Is a sad dependence we celebrating.
