Daily Dingleberry 04-01-12 I Pity The Fool!

You can NEVER read too much!

So…..one of the silliest criticisms of the Interview with the Vampire, ehem, Prime Minister, was that the reader didn’t care about what the Prime Minister reads. LMAO! En Serio!!!

Actually, I am very interested in what a leader reads and maybe even more importantly what he/she DOESN’T read. I would hope that he/she wouldn’t make decisions in a vacuum. That would be like the “Emperor With No Clothes” right?

I hope he/she reads newspapers; trade magazines; economic reports; dossiers; opposition propaganda (not too much, that can be distressing); some basic psychological theories on behaviour/learning/conflict resolution;papers on legal nuances, political strategies…o good lord…the list should go on. Why wouldn’t I want him/her to know about the effects of economic stress on a populace? Or what maritime laws affect shipping? Or how chemicals destroy our water supplies? Or how deforestation destroys habitats? Or that our vulnerable citizens need protection? Or what type of education is deemed most successful? Or that prevention is best medical/dental care?

I would hope that my leader is well versed in all manner of topics. An ignorant leader will only lead as far as his/her ego. A true leader is one who knows how to use resources, how to delegate responsibility, who to recruit…..it all requires deep knowledge.

I thank you reader for giving us here at Twocanview an opportunity to espouse the value of reading. We encourage you to keep reading our blog and keep contributing. It’s all an education!

Daily Dingleberry 03-27-12 Friggin Frigate!

Tweet, Tweet. Flutter, Flutter.

One friggin frigate knocks the other frigate in the throat to force her to regurgitate her food so that he can take it away and have it for himself. Are you doing that? Membah: WE ARE ALL ONE

Da who rung ya, di stutter?

Just wanna give a shout out to all who read the piece on the Prime Minister. Thanks for all your comments and thoughts. It hit the spot for some; for others, they just wanted to hit us. LOL It’s all good lovers, lovers of Belize.

As long as you talking? You care. And that is the whole point of twocanview, is it not? To encourage serious thoughtful discussions that hopefully result in advocacy.

I just want to remind people, we are not trying to be problem solvers. We present the crap; y’all talk about it, argue, dissent, enlighten,encourage; then the powers that be, MIGHT  take all that into account when they make the decisions.

In the end: WE ARE ALL ONE and at the end of the day, we all snore and fart in our sleep. Ask Aria bout it! LOL

Daily Dingleberry 03-16-12 WHEN BABY WHA BAWL

I can not believe the reaction to the formation of the new Ministry of Indigenous Peoples. Stann Creek and Toledo voted out the UDP because they were not pleased with their representatives AND YET, the Prime Minister saw it fit to address their concerns ANYWAY. Now that is a true change from what has occurred before. But instead of acknowledging this very different and appropriate action, he is being called “arrogant” and accused of making “unilateral decisions”. Uhm. Last time I checked, he is the leader of the party in power and as Prime Minister, he kinda gets to choose his ministry???

What is the issue here? The Mayan Leaders Alliance or MLA has decried the appointment of Ms Alamilla because they were not consulted and had they been consulted, they would have proposed that Mr. Choc be appointed. NOW. Since when do we have a voice in who the hell is appointed Minister???? Our voices are heard on election day when we choose who gets to make those decisions. It is preposterous that any one special group gets to exert such influence. Now, who is being “arrogant” and wishes to make “unilateral decisions”??????

I am so pleased that our people will have representation because frankly, the south has always been ignored by our government, blue or red. I know, because I am from Dangriga. But I also know that sometimes, we southerners can be our own worst enemy because of all the infighting. I have watched it happen over and over where initiatives are implemented then people play the race card, try to push out those not identified as such, and then everything goes to shit. Who loses? the children, every sackin time.

Don’t frustrate people with good intentions. Or you will be cast aside yet again and you will be crying fowl when it was you who stirred the shit bucket.
