We are living in a Renowned Country which is calling for the help of all. It doesn’t make sense to keep on behaving the way we are just for ‘Gay’ and ambitious politicians. This recession is bigger than any politician to push political agendas.
What helpful information are we getting from the talk programs? Are they helping or hurting us…? You be the judge.
On Tuesday nights from 8-10pm ‘Let’s Talk’, two hours telling us all what they think the party in power is doing wrong and what they think should be done from a political stand point. By listening to them I can tell very much that they are supporting the opposition.
On Wednesday nights 8-10pm ‘On The Mark’ for the same two hours doing basically the same thing, opposing everything that the masses think is good for the country.
On Thursday nights 8-10pm ‘Tell Me’ for two hours trying to undo what the two previous nights radio programs have done and meanwhile trying to push their projects and successes.
Daily from 11am-1.30pm there’s ‘Voices,’ 95% of the program is geared towards maligning the Prime Minister and the country, this tells me also it’s in the opposition’s favour.
We might feel good about ourselves, but it is not where we are today but what we have learnt and are teaching. If the tables should turn and the parties or people we want in position get in, would our country and people get better overnight? I beg to differ. Take that 8 1/2 hrs and tell the world of the goodness of our country and its people. We have a country and its people to protect. Politicians will come and go, but our country is here to stay.
The West Indies Federation was planned since 1921 but was put off because of lack of inter communication between the islands. The first meeting was held in Jamaica in 1947, there were several meetings between some member islands of the West Indies. Finally on April 22nd 1958 in the Red House at Port of Spain, Trinidad the Federal Government was seated. On September 19th, 1961 after a referendum was successful in Jamaica, Jamaica seceded from the federation. The ruling party in Trinidad and Tobago said they would not participate without Jamaica. The West Indies Act 1962 was passed on April 3rd 1962 and dissolved the West Indies Federation, but the idea was by no means dead. We are now hearing of Caribbean Single Market and Economy. You see my brothers and sisters where I am going? While we are blasting the politicians they are going straight ahead. We are small with little resources. Our chief crops were sugar, cotton, copra. With proper management we were able to add tourism and other services and we’ve managed to reach thus far. Most of our trade and skilled men learn locally; with hard work and perseverance we are here. I know in all our talking and fighting we can’t stop certain things but I am sure if we use all these radio programs and educate the people in more ways than one we could go further.
Trade men and skilled men need an association. In spite of the CSME we should protect ourselves. In a proper association we can determine how many tradesmen our industry can take. Mechanic, carpentry, plumbing, building and other associations will definitely help. We need all the media’s help; when we help our country we help ourselves. There’s a term we use in business “CYA”. Everyone should stop fighting each other, while we fight, look who are buying lands, while we fight look who is surviving. If we don’t work together to make things right, individuals from the Single Market will do it. They will do their business right on our door steps. Perhaps, it’s too far to see but as a far as I know, as one country, we need each other. Where’s the love gone?
