Daily Dingleberry 03-29-12 Cousin And Cousin Make Million$$$$$


There is a secret that is not so secret in Belize but over and over again, people just ignore the impact of this dynamic. Belizean politics/government is very incestuous. In all the upper echelons of our political parties and hence governing bodies, the people in charge are cousins, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives. They can paint their houses party colours and fly bed sheets as flags; they can holler on the rostrums about the thieving scumbags in office; they can incite riots and fierce debates…the list is inexhaustive. But at the end of the day, they eat dinner, drink champagne and sleep together: blue and red. Oh yeah and make MILLIONS together, in “hand wash hand” deals.

So, while you are hating your neighbour and calling him/her names; while you are telling your kids they can’t play with so and so; while you are doing their dirty work campaigning and running yourself ragged drumming up support, they are vacationing together in Hawaii, Italy, or right there in Placencia. How does that corn tortilla and beans feel going down your throat, now? Ain’t no friggin lobstah is it?

  1. You hit the nail on the head. I have been disturbed by past Oligarchy, but if you mention it…the excuse is…Oh, Belize small, everybody related…which we know is not exactly so..!

    • I hate that answer. I challenged everyone who said it to me this last time I was in Belize and the shock registered on their faces that someone should oppose. But the irony is that they complain but accept?! No bueno!

  2. Most constructive and objective post I’ve ever seen on this site. It’s true. We suckers out here take all the licks while our leaders remain wealthy and protected whether they are in office or not. The truth is that they don’t give a shit about us. We are all pawns to be used at the appropriate moment and for the appropriate purpose. They love us right before elections…then consider us less than nothing right after elections. Yet…while we out here fight the war…one or two of them make all the decisions. Its the most fucked up, lopsided system I have ever seen.

    I think all of us little people should just walk away. Not that its ever going to happen, but I can dream, can’t I.

  3. You the throw some big stones…..noticed how the usual naysayers no have shit fu seh about this. I wonda why?
