The Ball Is Rolling! Now Let’s Get Some Heads Rolling! 06-08-12

ID Yourself Mistah!

Several of our citizens have been so touched by Jasmine Lowe’s story that they have already started petitions, Facebook Groups and are calling for new legislation. One such person is Mary K. Carridi. She herself has faced very tragic circumstances when her mother was brutally murdered. Here is her proposal, or one of them. This lady has many, many good ideas:

Mary K Cariddi idea…..TAXI
We need new laws governing Taxi`s. 1. All taxis should have a Number issued and be displayed on the front, back, and both sides of the taxi. 2. All taxi drivers should have a back ground check/police report, and should be a Belizean national. 3. Each district should have a set color and all taxis working in the district should be painted that color. 4. Each taxis should pay for an individual trade license in there town and a registry of the taxi number and who is licensed to drive that taxi should be sent out to all police and traffic departments. 5. a 4in x 8in photo ID should be displayed on the dashboard in clear view. 6. All Taxis should have Plexiglas partition between front and back seat. 7. All taxis should be inspected every six months.

This is the time y’all.

People make me soooo tired *sigh*

Eribadi just yak yak yak yak…are we listening to anything?

I see lovely, passionate people but instead of debating ideas…we are debating records…as in, who duh what, when, where….we are gonna get nowhere like this. We need to establish a solid, sound framework within which our government, blue, red, pink needs to work. We have to acknowledge that the system is ROTTEN TO THE CORE. As long as our rules and laws are outdated, as long as we are operating under the same old premises and archaic ideologies, we will be third world. Third world ideas, third word behaviour, third world life. Don’t like that? Meh…sux for you.

We need to stop this ‘crab enna bucket’ mentality. We need to stop letting rich and powerful families get away with murder, literally. Nothing can get done if people are intimidated and threatened at every level. The smart people keep yaking yaking yaking (wait, would that include me? LOL) but we continuously fail to address the fact that we are fighting some pretty strong, deep seated, (no, it’s not deep seeded cause anything planted too deep doesn’t grow, hence has no roots)  historical and cultural factors. ANd then it all comes back to who, how, when, where and with what the hell money?


Depressed yet?
