Time for a Game Change In America— Out with the Protests & Marches – By Yvonne Sam

Time for a Game Change In America— Out with the Protests & Marches

By Yvonne Sam

Law enforcement continues the inordinate use of lethal force against people of color. A cure is urgently needed, not a diagnosis.

History has proven to be the most astute educator.   It is now absolutely clear that the American justice system will give blacks as much justice as a wolf would give to a flock of sheep.  Like the wolf, the system has completely devoured Blacks. Then again, what do Blacks expect now if they were not even considered by the initial designers of America’s system of jurisprudence?    Continue reading

America – Denial on trial

By Yvonne Sam

The recent shooting in Alexandria, Virginia of Republican members of Congress and others while playing baseball, should be viewed as only a part of the problem that currently ails the great nation.  This fact may not be aptly stated or politically correct but America—The land of the Free and the Home of the Brave is on the brink of political anarchy.

Yes, the continued spewing of vitriolic rhetoric, the undying quest and ceaseless prayers to have the President removed from Office has reached fruition- giving birth to bloodshed. Basically, America is raising her own genre of terrorists.    Continue reading

‘We Want Justice’: Prime Minister Forced to Flee as Londoners Protest Deadly Fire

“People should be held to account,” said Labour MP David Lammy

In the wake of the deadly fire that devastated residents of London’s Grenfell Tower—a fire believed to have been caused in part by government neglect and design flaws stemming from an effort to make the building look nicer to appease the wealthy—hundreds took to the streets on Friday to demand swift action from the British government.

Prime Minister Theresa May was close to the scene, but she soon had to be “rushed away under heavy police guard” as protesters chanted “May must go!” and “Shame on you!” Reuters reported.     Continue reading

Guyana: Failure to activate all IT modules aided rampant corruption, billion$ lost – GRA boss

For over ten years, officials within the Ministry of Finance had failed to implement crucial elements /modules of a computerized accounting system from Canada. This programme was intended to ensure accountability for how taxpayers’ money is budgeted and spent by the government.
It appears, however, that the Ministry of Finance was not the only agency that neglected its duty in this regard.

In fact, the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) failed to implement critical parts of an Information Technology (IT) system for almost a decade. The consequences of the entity’s actions in this regard only contributed to billions in revenue leakages and rampant corruption.  

New Controls Being Implemented.   Continue reading

questionable arrangements, while almost a similar number are failing to live up to the conditions under which they were granted the exemption, in the first place.

Are Guyanese men more deadly than terrorists? – By Yvonne Sam

Are Guyanese men more deadly than terrorists?

By Yvonne Sam

Each time I read about yet another female killed at the hand of her male partner——-be the union legal, consensual or common law I undergo a complete mental shutdown. In other parts of the world guns and bombs are issues of critical concern and discussion. In Guyana it’s a totally different story. In some countries feral husbands put their intimate partners in hospital beds, while others put them in psychiatric institutions. In Guyana they put them in graves.

Therefore, arguably in Guyana husbands are incomparably more deadly than terrorists. If we really want to talk about the safety and security of females on homeland then the government needs to refocus its efforts on eradicating intimate partner homicide.  It is blatantly obvious that nothing thus far has been efficacious. What has the experts yet to discover about this deadly phenomenon?   Continue reading
