I think we can all appreciate that your history follows you - forever. I still get teased about the dumb shit I did in primary school. Your character is what counts. The bad boys in the neighborhood growing up are still 'those bad boys' and the older generation will always keep an eye on them. IF this guy had a history with police then the police would certainly be suspicious of him every time they see him. Maybe he was eating food, maybe he was making a drug deal. I usually sway more to the police side cause most parents have no idea what their kids are up to.Police brutality kept me and many of my friends in line when we were teenagers. No one wanted to get driven to the pine barrens for a good ass kicking and then have to hitch a ride home.

Do you know how many pages the U.S. tax code is? Over 70,000 pages. Not efficient. The collection of tax - other than payroll tax is also not efficient. Ever had to complete a US tax return? Not easy or efficient.Most Bahamians never even have to think about paying tax in the Bahamas. The importers do most of it for us. Bahamians usually only deal with Road traffic once a year.

I'll repeat your repeat because it needs repeating... I repeat, there is nothing that stagnates the economy more than the web shops.

More taxes isn't moving forward; it's falling on your knees and obeying a master who can't keep his own house in order. Anyone with a brain cell think that the U.S. or European tax system is fair and efficient?

"Registered agents set up these corporations with no fiduciary duty (agency responsibilities only) other than knowing the customer. Knowing your customer is only the starting point. In developed countries corporations must file financial statements with the registry and prepare annual tax returns. No such requirement in the Bahamas."
Ah, wrong! Delaware for example is much, much worse than here. Speaking from experience, registered agents in Delaware don't know how much money is in a company, and they don't care. They don't know who the shareholder of the company is (only who asked for it to be incorporated) and they don't care. They don't know who the controlling parties of the company are, and they don't care. Many development countries are MUCH more slack than us... and they don't care! They just don't want us playing on their pitch!!!

“He was never arrested for any **grievous** crimes,..."Love it! Does this mean that he has been arrested before?

I went there a couple of years ago with the kids. Most of the streets downtown I didn't drive down because of the amount of fellas hanging out and talking loud.The island isn't as tranquil as it used to be. Spanish Wells is now far superior and getting better every year.
