So where are the FNM...aren't they suppose to be grabbing headlines to distract and draw attention away from the convention?. or maybe they feel its no big deal since they have more than four years before the election. And the PLP still itchin from the cut hip they got in May 2017 Election. But still the FNM needs to be strategizing now to win two terms. 2022 is too early to let the PLP back to the reins of power. The FNM needs two terms to ensure that all the corrupt dinosaurs are gone forever. And one way to do it is to keep the PLP weak and straggely as long as possible.

Sheeprunner : when you refer to people’s children as pigs and hogs it could only be because you are a hog yourself. And to try qualiify your statement by trying to interject my family makes you even less credible. We have had many years of illigimate children and many children born out of wedlock or to single parents. If this was the single or major cause of crime in this country the problem will have manifested itself in the family islands. You are no more credible than Toronto Gal who claims she knows many Bahamian men with up to 20 children and up to 10 different baby mommas. But why Toronto Gal ain’t say what the fashion trend is in Toronto? For single white women to have ‘mixies ‘ or children with black men. So they come to the Bahamas, Jamaica and other Caribbean islands and get pregnant for native (black) men, some women do it two and three times over. And they parade strung Toronto and the world with these mixed black children, not unlike a pedigree poodle of some other prized pet. Then what happens when the child turns 16-16? They start asking for their father. And in many cases the mother cannot answer because she didn’t document who the father was or keep in contact with him. And in many cases the children come to the Bahamas, Jamaica or some other island looking for their daddy. Just recently a young man came to Freeport from the Maple 🍁 Leaf looking for his daddy. The Bahamian man had married and lived with the Canadian woman for a number of years. Then one day he came home to meet the house cleaned out and his wife and children gone. He spent many years and a lot of money back and forth to Canada trying to find his family. Then he took I’ll fr the stress of losing his family. The son met his father 3 days before he died. The sons last words before leaving the Bahamas was ‘I don’t care to see my mom again. She destroyed me and made me nobody.”

@sheeprunner you should have thought about that sterilization rule when y’all was forcing slaves to breed like farm animals and then breaking up families and selling them like cattle. Yes fathers abandoning their children is learnt behavior but the hogs are the ones who forced them to breed. Look at your hands.
Toronto Gall “I know of so many men who brag about having 25-30 children ‘. You and the truth are strangers. Your lie is a bold face one. And if you don’t have credible substance to contribute you should keep quiet. The latest murder victim, like many, had a father who was taking care of his son and actively involved in his life. When he realized his son was caught up in the crossfire of different gangs he called out for help. His pleas went unanswered. The father took his son out of school to avoid him getting in conflict only to have him ambushed and killed just a short distance from his home, from police headquarters and from the hospital. You and the facts are strangers. You are a dirty stranger to the truth. Many of these young boys being killed do so trying to avoid gangs and gang activity. Like you, gangs are foreign to the Bahamas and once the police get a grip and squash this foreign element then the murders will cease and the young men and everyone else in the country will be safe.

Kudos to those police officers who uncovered a cache of weapons and ammunition hidden in a refrigerator being imported into the country. And on further investigation found more weapons and ammunition in a home. Several persons are now in custody and hopefully the law will not smile brightly on them. Time this weapons smuggling and sales be exposed.

In the Bible, Paul says the law is a curse. Because the law is everything. People cannot have discipline and regulations without law. And when you let people get away with killing people over and over almost 150 times a year and nothing seems to be being done about it and the people who are breaking the law are running free, then the law becomes a curse to those trying to live under the law. The natural instinct for them to want to go and seek revenge increases. Only respect for the law and the love of Christ constrains them. Satan is angry because he knows his time is short. He is to and fro throughout the earth seeking whom to destroy. So thank God we still have a praying nation.

The sheep cannot take care of themselves. It is the States responsibility to keep them safe. It’s the parents responsibility to give them guidance and direction and keep safe in their homes. The schools responsibility to educate them in s safe place and the church to give spiritual uplifting. Big brothers and sisters also to help guide and protect the younger ones. So who’s failing? Who is failing when you let the wolves in and let them devour your children? Kill after killing, murders after murder? The blood of these youth are on your hands O Bahamas!

Approximately Twelve minors were murdered this year. Probably more underage victims in any year in recent history. The country (and police) should be concerned that the victims of murders are younger. Again mostly males, school age boys

Firstly, did Franky Campbell or his mother, or anyone else, for that matter, do anything untoward to cause him to obtain citizenship in The Commonwealth of The Bahamas. Secondly does the absence or lack of participation by a father for ones quest to obtain citizenship preclude an individual from obtaining citizenship or make him ineligible? Thirdly, if there is a question about the sufficiency of the documents presented by Franky Campbell to obtain citizenship, shouldn't that be an issue between the Minister of Immigration, who accepted the documents and granted the citizenship, and the courts? And in the event Franky Wilson is determined to not qualify to be a member of parliament in the Bahamas, which results in a by election what chances, greater than a snowball in hell on a hot, sunny day does the PLP stand of winning this seat?
