Now everybody know that I eh NO PNM SUPPORTER. But how on earth could any AFRO-TRINI person criticize PNM for NOT SUPPORTING PAN (ENOUGH). Or even throw the smallest pebble at the PNM when it comes to PAN.
If allyuh fail to have the ADMINISTRATIVE SKILLS or HONESTY once the PNM hands over THE MONEY -- then BLAME THE STEELBAND COMMUNITY, NOT THE PNM.
As I have stated before: The PNM could give 2 BILLION DOLLARS to the BRIGHTEST LUMINARIES in the PAN COMMUNITY and in two years time all the money will be gone and they will be back begging the PNM for MORE MONEY.
With the PNM and PAN: Money is not the problem; Money was never the problem!!!
It has always been a HUMAN RESOURCE problem (and not a MONEY PROBLEM) and it will continue to be a HUMAN RESOURCE PROBLEM -- just look at the LIST OF CANDIDATES running in this UPCOMING PAN TRINBAGO ELECTION (if the election ever comes off this year).
The PNM was fooled by the talk that any jackass could run the Pan movement. They were the jackasses to put millions of dollars in the hands of incompetent people.
I am yet to see the full list of candidates running in this very important upcoming Pantrinbago elections.
Earl: Ah does always treat you like a BROTHER. So forget all that LIST TALK!!! If you ever played POKER that "LIST TALK" is called TABLE TALK. And if you translate that to TRINIDAD VERNACULAR: We call it OLE TALK!!!
THE LIST has been whittled down to TWO CANDIDATES: BYER and BEVERLEY!!! So make yuh pick between two ah dem!!!
Tell meh who YUH PICKING!!!
If as you say the list has been whittled down to two candidates BYER and BEVERLY, I have to go back to the PAST and see where MEN as the leaders of Pantrinbago and the world governing body of PAN in the MECCA has taken us, Is it upwards where the SKY and the STARS are the limit or downward where corruption,mismanagement,transparency,accounting, and filling their own pockets with Tax Payers, Bands and Pan Players monies.Is it time for a gender change in the leadership of Pantrinbago ? I don't know , But i have read this quote on this forum from members, If you have the same judges for Panorama you will get the same results. So if you elect the same leaders in the upcoming Pantrinbago elections you will get the sametype of behavior towards Pan, Bands and Players, So is it time for a Woman President of Pantrinbago, Ask the captain of the 2018 Panorama Champions, As BoogsIe said in calypso a few years ago WOMAN IS BOSS.
I agree with you earl.
In total agreement...
Last president to balance the US budget, left the country with a surplus when he exited office was Bill Clinton while being impeached. The Republicans campaign bumper sticker during his presidency was “Get rid of the President and HER husband too.” Looking back at 2016 you can understand their FEAR and the politics of personal destruction.
BOSS WHERE? When they getting CHOP UP and BEAT UP and RAPED AND KIDNAPPED and MADE INTO SEX SLAVES and HUMANLY TRAFFICKED all over the ISLAND and WORLD?
And may I add with ZERO PROTECTION from the POLICE OR GOVERNMENT!!!
Earl: I have to be MOST RESPECTFUL to YOUR DIPLOMATIC RESPONSE!!! But, unlike you, I cannot take a NEUTRAL POSITION in this UPCOMING ELECTION. I have to PICK A SIDE and run a RUSSIAN-LIKE OPPOSITION to my OPPOSING CANDIDATES.
I have been dreaming the PROGRESSIVE PAN TRINBAGO DREAM for over 30 years. Not to mention all the SUPPORT I have provided for EXPAT PAN in NORTHERN CALIFORNIA -- along with my daily efforts on THIS FORUM.
And since my CEMETERY CLOCK is ticking real loud as we enter the NEXT DECADE -- I have to make sure that the RIGHT PERSON takes the reigns of PAN TRINBAGO in the NEXT ELECTION.
NO TIME for give-me-a-break GENDER POLITICS!!!
So like a TEMPERATURE in a STORM yuh could feel this ELECTION PACE getting WARM and I will be JAMMING all the SELF-SERVING CANDIDATES REAL HARD!!!
WATCH ME!!! Because I eh FRAID NOBODY!!! I coming FIERY!!!
Ms. Ramsey Moore has her strengths but she definitely would not be the next president of Pan Trinbago and the same argument of her being a woman is exactly the reason why, since 90% of bandleaders are chauvinistic men.
Shake meh hand, Kareem Richards!!! You are MORE HONEST and SMARTER than all the men on this forum with the CHAUVINISTIC TING.
ONE MAN GOT THE PULSE OF THE SOCIETY ... besides me, of course!!!
What does male chauvinism have to do with COMPETENCY and one’s ability to LEAD an organization and DELEGATE AUTHORITY...WHY get caught-up in EMOTIONAL BLINDNESS?
JUDGEMENT should be based on SERVICE to others and ACCOMPLISHMENTS!
De Fire Blazing!
