Government officials, including Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon Hubert Minnis, look on as investor, Peter Krieger, signs the Heads of Agreement between The Bahamas Government and OBAN Energies.

I never thought in my wildest imagination that provisions would have been made for me to finally get a helicopter. This proves that dreams do come true.

But, come on man, Have we ever in generations seen such a profound disregard and disrespect for a people.  Have we ever seen anything so brazen being played in such a callous way.

Minister of Finance Peter Turnquest could care less if he was exposed to be taking care of himself by making sure his business was comfortable.  But what did in fact happen was the masters made sure that the distance between the have and have not, widened.

In an effort to control the people easier, the best way to do it was to keep them poor. But I never thought that it would be so blatant. PM Minnis made sure the wealthy was served generously on a silver platter.  Is it true that Jaws Beach would be used to build condominiums?  Just asking!

The big car dealers pay no duty until the cars are sold, but the small used car business were literally strangled. I am sure this was designed to completely suffocate them until they succumb.

There are other points that I would love to expound on but thats for another time.

The real concern is that the 12 per cent increase on VAT, I believe, was earth shattering enough to cause all of the attention to be removed for the elephant in the room.  We must not lose focus.  The OBAN Land Grab Deal must remain front and centre. We must therefore not let the side show, distract us from the big show.

The ball of confusion, has caused all to start scampering to and fro, but we must remain vigilant, stay awake , the thief is coming in the night, when you rest your head.

East Grand Bahama, brace yourselves, a new very high upscale gated “Lyford Cay style community may be coming your way. The real estate is the prize, not the oil.  Keep your head in the game.

Truth is stranger than fiction.

Nothing could be done with a man who is at peace with himself and fear God only.
