there is just so much wrong with this gibberish, John. The kennedys were assassinated for reasons related to the Vietnam War and not the illegal drug trade. Alcohol was completely 100% legal in the Bahamas and british empire so Symonette did not do anything illegal or wrong. rum runners were not pirates because they weren't doing naything wrong. the american side to ran the leg from ship to US shores were doing the illegal stuff. Bahamians just provided an off shore store. read some real books for a change John.

Well said. and as others have said, why is this posthumus? why not use it on living persons? do you have to die to become a saint? yes. do you have to die to become knighted? no.

why are you inciting hatred and division? Is it a fair statement that the Bahamas had the most peaceful transition to majority rule and independence in the world. can you explain why? Maybe Symonette helped the country to transition peacefully and smoothly have you ever considered that?

All of this money originated in bootlegging. and then it was invested wisely instead of frittering it away a lavish lifestyle. very much unlike the current numbers boys. and why do you not mention all the PLPs who raped the bahamas tax payer's money and left us $8,000,000,000 in debt to the IDB. The UBP didn't stick you with 12% VAT - that is the result of decades of PLP looting and you know it. perhaps you personally benefitted from it too?
