Snoop Dogg becomes Snoop Lion, embraces Reggae Culture

NEW YORK — Snoop Dogg wants you to know that he’s tired of hip-hop, is Bob Marley reincarnated and is embracing reggae instead of the culture of guns he once rapped about.

Consumer confidence is at its lowest level ever !

Today it was reported that consumer confidence level is at its lowest ever and business confidence is at its lowest level in 3 years. Now this comes after just 7months of this administration, which is failing badly in all most every facet of management of the economy. The bungling by the Finance Minister who appears to be out at sea, an absentee Prime Minister who (when present) refuses to comment on any subject matter, a Transport Minister who picks a fight with the Contractor General in relation to his oversight of government projects.

Then we have a Foreign Affairs Minister who pledge to restore Jamaica’s credibility on the international scene, only to see it plunge lower than ever, when word came from the highly respected economist, that our growth rate is now below poverty-stricken Haiti.

The Olympics could not have come at a better time, it offers some distraction at this point in time as we cheer our Olympians along, and hoping we have a repeat of their historic performance they achieved in London.

Consumer Confidence Declines

There has been a sharp drop in consumer and business confidence, an indicator that Jamaicans have taken a dim view of economic prospects

and 3 MONTHS EARLIER

Consumer Confidence Soars On Expectation Of Jobs From JEEP.

Consumer confidence soared but business confidence remained flat in the first quarter of 2012 due to a change of government and increased job prospects.

The index of business confidence declined 0.6 per cent to 123.7 points; consumer confidence was 51 per cent higher than year-earlier levels at 160 points.

So what really happened ? How does one explains this precipitous fall ?

Jay : So Madame Prime Minister, what factor(s) do you believe has leads to this huge decline in consumer confidence in the economy ?

Portia Simpson-Miller  ” Well I really don’t know, I have not seen the full report. I will have to await the full report so we can study it and then the party will issue a statement. That is as much as I am prepared to say at this point in time.” 

Jay : But with all due respect Madame Prime Minister, we need to hear from you. Lets take today’s report into perspective. On May 2, 2102 it was reported that consumer confidence level was at a high 160+ point, so how do you explain the huge decline in just three months”.

Prime Minister : ” As I have said before I cannot comment on what I did not see, I have not seen the official report, its has not come across my desk as yet. As soon I have receive a copy, it will be reviewed and the party will issue an official statement. That is all that I am prepared to say at this point in time.”

Note the above is not an actual conversation between myself and the Prime Minister, its just how I think she would have responded if asked the above question.

Deputy Mayor, Michael Troupe escapes once again !

Mayor Troupe appears to be Teflon coated and now the cops have eggs over their faces once again. Commish, your guys screwed up big time on this one.

You jumped the “gun” before collecting all the evidence that was needed for the charges to stick and now uncle Sam is livid. I did note in another blog that the son would be the fall guy in this case and so it was. He was sentenced to 2yrs in prison for illegal possession of firearm and ammunition and close to $1m in  fines.

All charges against Michael Troupe have been dropped.

CURE WINS, JPS MONOPOLY LICENSE INVALID !

The supreme court agrees with CURE. More information will be presented later.
