DNA: Show Me the Money - Apr 19, 2015 - 12:11:24 PM


Since taking office in 2012 this Christie administration has shown itself inconsistent; failing to meet self-imposed deadlines and defaulting on countless election campaign promises.

Over the past several months, diligent members of the press have uncovered countless instances of misconduct on the part of government officials...

"Meet The Bahamas Most Successful Political Families" - Apr 18, 2015 - 8:08:39 PM

latrae.rahming.jpg
Politics in The Bahamas is a very peculiar abstract of the Bahamian culture and history. Particularly in the dimension of the thorny politics of mobility in our political structure. The hereditary succession politics of our country are entrenched in our governing system. The undetermined question remains do political dynasties strengthen our democracy or weaken us? Our country's political way of life continues to be saturated with powerful Bahamians connected to one another by blood or through marriage.

Political dynasties are a Bahamian tradition which places our electorate in a fatigue love affair with political royalties. It’s not unusual that politician's children go into politics after all it is the family's business...
