It's not uncommon for things in Belize to go missing.

Seven little girls went missing a few years ago. We've somehow managed to lose common decency and respect, though I hear it's hiding in a few villages in the rural. Asphalt often goes missing from our highways and roads. {That one still amazes me}. We've even managed to lose several million dollars. (I hear that this too is hidden somewhere. If I were you, I would check under the mattress for this!) Most of all, I miss our small town ways and manners... respect and fear...that made living in Belize so safe.

But, all these lost things aren't the focus of this article. What I can't believe went missing are 24 grenades from BATSUB. What the hell? Am I the only one shocked that this is only being disclosed to us four years after the fact?

I wonder what happened...

**Picture, a solider counting grenades**

"Four hundred seventy-nine, four hundred eighty.... uh oh!"

** Runs to his commanding officer**

"Sah, Sah, twenty grenade missing!"


"It's okay, son. I'm sure they'll show up somewhere..."

And they have shown up. In our streets. By the feet of our country's children. We need fi come betta than this, Belize. Share in my indignation and outrage! Enough is enough. I'm ready to take back the streets of Belize from hooligans and Neanderthals. Just as long as someone would kindly return all the asphalt that's missing...

The UDP & PUP style propaganda

Note: Please folks, this is not a partisan blog! If you read the following that way then you are not reading it properly. We must be able to write things that criticize an administration without being seen as anti-UDP/ please don't comment that I am partisan.


As I watched our 5 day a week local news last night, to my dismay I saw big boy Delroy, looking like Pastor Bob Roberts, spurting utter untruths about why the cost of fuel / butane has gone down.

It was horrible. It was shameful. Made me think that the UDP, just like Queen St and Co before them, think we are stupid.

Pastor Cutkelvin asserted the amazing price fall was because the UDP cut /changed taxes. What a joke. It has not fallen because of some miracle the administration has managed to pull off, or because the UDP has tried to deliver on its promises. No way. Everyone with reasonable common sense knows that the price of fuel/butane has gone down because the world markets for oil have crashed. They have gone from $140 to $45 per barrel.

Yes the UDP in its manifesto did take a huge gamble and bet that the price of oil had to come down, so "we promise to lower rates", and yes they were right.

Why would the UDP get on TV and spurt such a complete fabrication? Because they can't help themselves...that's why. If they are going to lie in as blatantly as manner as this to the Belizean people then they are no better than their predecessors, and what else are they lying to us about.

All they had to say was we promised lower prices at the pump and today you have it. Simple message. Effective message.

Come on UDP...rise us why we elected you....if we wanted PUP style propaganda we would have left Said and his cronies in Belmopan.

The Other Side of the Lady

I always like to give people the benefit of the doubt... I look for the good in people. I want to believe that people are inherently good... And for the most part, they are.

But, some people aren't. They're advantageous. They prey on the weak and feeble minded. They think only about themselves.

I'm observing our Mayor, Zenida Moya.... and more and more, I'm questioning her motives. More and more, I believe that she does NOT have the interest of the Belizean people at heart. More and more, I fear her, and I think she should NOT be in office.

What's the legacy of her mayorship? A freaking gazebo at the foot of Swing Bridge? What a big flaming pile of bull...

Maybe I'm wrong and I'm over reacting... but I'd love to get your opinion on the matter...
