Okay, well it’s me again.
I re-started this blog because ever since I stopped blogging a few years ago, there has been no real biting commentary on the state of things in The Bahamas.
Sure, there have been dozens of websites that have sprung up since then, but many of them only pretend to be “news” sites, mostly by regurgitating BIS press releases and publishing mamby-pansy touristy garbage.
Of course, none of these sites come close to the traffic of BahamasB2B.com, whose main news page is still the most read page in The Bahamas.
The Tribune is now online, I see. But except for an occasional editorial from “Mother Superior” herself, the content is somewhat meek. I guess the exodus of John Marquis had more of an effect on the paper than anyone thought it would. It’s good to see John back, writing a weekly column. His presence at the Tribune was one of the reasons I stopped blogging. I figured he could take the heat instead of me. And he certainly did. lol
The Guardian is also doing a pretty good job with Erica Wells as Editor.
However, both papers rely heavily on advertising revenue, so for the most part they have to play real nice so they don’t lose money.
So you can expect the same kind of unvarnished truth and scathing editorials that once made this one of the biggest sites in the nation.
Even BahamasB2B has tamed down a bit, ever since rogue employees at the Ministry of Tourism (and certain political monkeys) started a campaign against the founders; paying script kiddies to attack the site, sending out slanderous and untruthful emails about the founder, “blacklisting” them and doing all sorts of unethical and illegal things to make them stop printing the truth about The Bahamas.
Well, now the truth is out, big time, and many, many people are saying the same things that BahamasB2B and I have been saying for years, albeit usually in a much tamer manner.
And as the country is rapidly falling apart, most Bahamians are more willing to take their heads out of the sand, listen to the truth and take action against the outright criminals and discreetly crooked white collar shills who have nearly destroyed the country. (Lots more about that later).
So hang to your hats, because I assure you this will be a wild ride. I am going to relate (in completely truthful accounts) some of the many, many outrageous things that have happened to me during my tenure here in The Bahamas, including the names of the people and businesses who need to be named and shamed. And because everything I say is the honest-to-God truth (and cleverly documented) trying to sue me will only dig those chumps a deeper grave. I will also comment on current news and affairs and share with you my opinions on how we got to where we are and what we can do to get back to being the wonderful little paradise I originally thought I was in.
Oh, by the way, for the corrupt cretons who think they are going to intimidate, threaten and cajole me into silence… I’ve got a few real surprises for you too. ha-ha
