POLITICAL PARTY …REPRESENTATIVES … ELECTORATE from SXMHELPSSXM

POLITICAL PARTY

A political party is a political organization that typically seeks to influence government policy, usually by nominating their own candidates and trying to seat them in political office. Parties participate in electoral campaigns, educational outreach or protest actions. Parties …often espouse an expressed ideology or vision bolstered by a written platform with specific goals, forming a coalition among disparate interests. Mark the words “IDEOLOGY” and “PLATFORM”.

Families of parties from left to right: communist, socialist, green, liberal, Christian democratic, conservative and libertarian. The position of two other types, agrarian and regional/ethnic parties vary. Another category is Islamic political parties.

REPRESENTATIVES

The representatives form an independent ruling body (for an election period) charged with the responsibility of acting in the people’s interest, but not as their proxy representatives not necessarily always according to their wishes, but with enough authority to exercise swift and resolute initiative in the face of changing circumstances.

ELECTORATE

ELECTORATE = “US”, the “THE PEOPLE”. “WE” decide who is representing us in which political party to influence “OUR” needs on a political level.

Statement of today: We will take back the power to ensure that the political needs and wishes of the electorate will be taken care of.

T-O,T-O,T-O….DUN WID IT!!! FROM SXMHELPS SXM…REPOSTED FROM A LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Modern day slavery

Wednesday, 27 April 2011 22:33

Dear Editor,

I was absolutely disgusted when I was reading this morning’s newspaper article where Deputy Prime Minister Theo Heyliger classifies the current relationsh…ip between St. Maarten and the Netherlands as “modern day slavery.” The reason he gives for this is that he and his government – let’s be honest, it’s his – don’t appreciate that stiff supervision that the Dutch government is applying.

Furthermore it goes on telling that they (the government of St. Maarten) don’t get any extra funding anymore and therefore so many things can’t get accomplished. First of all, Mr. Heyliger, pulling that “slave master vs. slave” card is such a cheap shot and populist outing, it’s beyond my belief. You chose to become a country “within the Kingdom,” not an independent country! Now that the rules are clear to all sides and they are being applied, you start crying a river?

This is what your country needs: supervision! It’s because of people like you that can’t be trusted governing this beautiful island. The Dutch have learned from their mistakes giving Aruba that same country status back in 1986 without that supervision and have a look at the state of affairs on that island.

As a Dutchman, I truly wish these Dutch Caribbean islands could obtain their complete independence from the Netherlands. Only I fear that, because the majority of the local politicians are out there for themselves, not caring at all for what is best for the country, it would be a huge disaster for the people.

As to the question of “lack of funds,” Mr. Heyliger, my suggestion to you, Sir, is that you go and get the percentage of our dear island’s tax compliance up, as suggested by that very competent gentlemen Mr. Xavier Blackman, a professional commissioner, I may add.

Apparently tax compliance on St. Maarten is about 30 per cent. For those readers who are not completely sure what that means, let me explain. It means that of all the taxes our government could collect, it only collects about 30 per cent. The other 70 per cent just never gets paid, for no other reason than non-compliance. And instead of going after these monies, our Deputy Prime Minister Theo Heyliger opts for the easy way out by stating that it’s the Dutch government’s fault for not having any money. No Sir, it’s your and your government’s fault and it’s about time you write out new elections so we can try and minimise the damage you’ve already caused this young country!

Concerned Dutchman

THEO HEYLIGER “ANY DEVIATION FORM THE BUDGET WILL CREATE A MAJOR PROBLEM! LOL!

Really, Theo? Any deviation? But the budget has a 40 PLUS MILLION GUILDER DEFICIT!

So what could be worse than that? You put an incompetent moron to be the head of finances, because his father-in-law is such and such,

how about you hire a competent financial staff, to try to manage the budget.

When they brought someone who pointed out your problems, named Roorda, you people pointed a laser at him,

and used firebombs to get the message out, less anyone else tried to point out the discrepencies in your budget.

St Maarten cannot balance a budget, because we have incompetent fools in charge, who have gained their positions strictly through nepotism.

Nobody is allowed to point out that the emperor (HIRO SHIGEMOTO’S ) LARGE, FLAT ASS IS SHOWING.!

Not when you have the jesters and clowns such as Theo and Duncan jumping around trying to distract with their smoke and mirrors.

The legitimate “press” are not that legitimate….are they?

These are supposedly veteran reporters and journalist, but how can you be fair and unbiased, when you pay your monthly rent to maintain your radio station to a Wathey?

HOW STUPID DO YOU THINK, US ST MAARTENERS ARE?

THE MAJORITY OF ST MAARTENERS DO NOT WANT LEGAL GUNS! BUT THIS IS A DICTATORSHIP, SO WHO CARES?

In the middle of fresh gun violence, murder, retaliation AND in the middle of carnival, Duncan plans to enforce his new gun policy WITHOUT any input from parliament.

People in government ARE speaking out, but are quickly silenced! Duncan….how is St Maarten different from Zimbabwe?

First you throw out the Dutch, and the Mugabe takes over with a dang Hitler moustache.

The local “press” is not covering this because they are not just afraid, but who believes them anyway?

They have NO credibility! May 1st is in 3 DAYS!  It is quite obvious from the polls and reactions onland and online that the majority of St Maarteners are against this, therefore this is not a democracy!

Front page to back page, nothing but our leaders defending crime, criminals, guns and violence.

Of course Kendall drew criticism, that’s because the majority of St Maarteners believe that there are already TOO MANY guns to be stolen from lock boxes and safes, so St Maarteners want to clean up this mess….NOT ADD TO IT!

Kendall, the majority of St Maarteners are against this new gun policy…

does it matter to you?

It will matter to your legacy.

And yes, Kendall should be added to the list of people who need to be given a special shovel, in order to bury the ones killed in gun violence.

Kendall, your argument is B.S.,  when there is clear evidence, that no matter what type of safe or lockbox you use, it can be broken into and the gun can be accessed…case and point…. GEORGE YORK…

The police officer had his gun stolen, and everyone including him tried to cover it up…

If you don’t believe me, scroll below to the article about George York having his gun stolen, and then read the bullsh*t comment written by George York himself, denyning it!

It’s quite obvious, that the lock boxes do not ensure gun safety…

THE POLICE WON’T TELL YOU THAT THEIR STOLEN GUNS ARE NOW BEING USED IN CRIMES!!!!!!

The same way the stole York’s gun,

and broke into “The Today”, and stole the laptop,

and stole Gijsbertha’s “secured” laptop,

and the same way they broke into Erno Labegas office,

is the same way that they will be stealing all of these new “legal” guns.

Why aren’t the police giving you the ballistics on these new guns???

Because, evidently some of these guns being used for gang crimes, murder and retaliation might have “special” serial numbers on them.

And you are entrusting a man, prostitute deep, with your safety!

St Maarten will be getting another cleansing,

Just like Luis…..

Hurrican Luis…….remember that ablution?

St Maarten is on a downward spiral through violent crime, and incompetent representation.

THERE WILL BE A CLEANSING………..

OF COURSE THEO SUPPORTS REGINA, WHO’S UNDER INVESTIGATION, SHE HAS TO KEEP HER MOUTH QUIET!

Yes, of course your new and corrupt “deputy Prime Minister” supports Regina Labega, who is under a cloud of investigation.

That is because, Theo, like his grandfather, is a corrupt entity, who thrives on organized crime.

Regina Labega, has to keep her mouth shut about what she knows, so of course she gets the support.

Why does Theo have so much input in the Airport situations?

His family legacy, is stealing from the Airport, to assist the mafia in building Maho/Sonesta, isn’t it?

Why is Theo, who has been calling himself deputy prime minister, these days have ANY INPUT AND SAY into the airport?

How corrupt are your government officials, to be getting away with this under your noses, and all you do on facebook and in the other “virtual” political arenas is complain, but I see no one doing anything about the corruption.

Before Kendall Dupersoy, jumped on Duncan’s nutsack, and made a total asshat of himself once again,

Kendall should have been making statements about the overt corruption that’s being displayed,

but Kendall’s problem is that he still sees William Marlin through “rose colored glasses”,

so rather than standing up when he has the chance, and going after these Politici corrupti,

he’s taking another long ride on Marlin/Duncan’s d***!

Yes, Kendall, rather than jumping up on the gun bandwagon, prioritize

Because you are supposed to be smarter than the average fifth grader,

and you’re certainly supposed to be smarter than this government,

yet when you have the chance, you can only defend the destruction of St Maarten,

When has health and education, been a priority,

how about getting these youth off of the streets before adding guns to it?

You are a horrible disappointment whenever you open your mouth Kendall Dupersoy,

because one always expects you to say something insightful, and constructive,

but always ends up sadly disappointed, when you open your mouth,

and we hear William Marlin’s voice.

BTW Kendall, on your “to -do” list…

Prioritize

Prioritize

Prioritize

You sound like every other ignoramus, when you open your bek, and the words of that punk William Marlin comes out!

THEY NABBED THE WRONG SUSPECT, BECAUSE THEY ARE CLUELESS!

amador and elton

Since last week the word on the street has been that the alleged shooter was spotted at the Midtown Motel, a motel supposedly owned by Don Hughes. A female who claims that she was at the ballpark the night of the shooting also claims that she spotted the gentleman who did the shooting, along with a friend, trying to keep their faces concealed.

One tall and braided, the other one dark short and stocky.

The people who allegedly spotted these people at this motel, also claim that they have now fled!

So, when it was blasted all over the paper,

I guess people wondered why I didn’t pick the story up….

Well, I simply assumed that the police and the legitimate press knew what I knew,

but then again,

that might be expecting too much in “New Country, St Maarten”.

THEO HEYLIGER NEEDS TO BREAK THE CORRUPTION CYCLE

YOUR DAYS ARE NUMB3R3D!!!

The only time you hear Theo Heyliger saying anything, anymore is to defend his weak policies, and his habit of doing things the “old” way. Theo Heyliger can you please explain to the people, why the gas prices are so high? And while you’re at it, explain to the people how many of these gas stations are owned by you and your own.

No one is supposed to notice your dirty ties with the airport board, or your connection to the Pelican scandal.

The only time you say anything anymore is to defend the fact that you put the snake in charge, and now it’s hard for you to focus on anything, with an arrow pointed at your back.

Because you are an idiot Theo, you deserve everything you get from Sarah the Snake.
Why does no one ask him about the irreversable destruction going on at the Salt Pond?

Entire species are dying out. The Salt Pond looks like a hell hole, filled with scavenger dogs, who now feed off of the eggs buried by the birds.

The eggs are eaten, before they can hatch, so of course those birds will be dying out.

Before Theo opens up his mouth, he needs to start doing some environmental damage control.

The destruction that this child has been allowed to endulge in is ridiculous,

and now of course he has his eyes set on the Simpson Bay Lagoon.

Theo Heyliger wants to complain about Higher Supervision not freeing up any funds.

Theo who do you think you’re fooling?

When the Dutch give you money you blow it on yourselves, your family and friends.

You throw around a couple hundred dollars to the Black man, and of course the idiots’ are appeased.

Why don’t you reach into you and your family’s deep, dark pockets,

and get the funds, to repair the damage that you are doing to this eco system.

At first I simply assumed that you were a weak punk, Theo, controlled by your uncles.It is now clear, that you are not only weak, you are a moron, with his hands out to the Dutch government,

while you continuously loot our coffers.

In these tough financial times, what has Theo done, but dodge the questions, and try to pump more sunshine up these locals’

a**sses?

Your days are numbered Theo,

you fool ONLY the sheep!

      Alston, I did not vote for my party or against it, I voted for the best possible outcome for the young lady. It’s funny how no one takes time out to listen to my statements before and after. 1st) The young lady was promises a position by pr…evious Gov. That they couldn’t give her unless they controlled both the parliament and the ministries. 2nd) The position states arguably that the person needs to have a judicial back ground, that the young person doesn’t have. 3rd) All members of Parliament with exception of Frans and Hycinth who left the room by design it seems was in favor of the new proposal. But when Frans and Brother came back, Frans said” we cannot support this because we have promised her the position while we were in government and because of this promise we will not support it” after the other NA agreed on the new proposal. So you make up your own mind on whatever you choose too. Your an EDUCATED one man, they found a compromise with me, I didn’t find one with them. But we are so busy and eager to trample on someone without knowing ANYTHING. Happy EasterSee More

      You are an educ…ated young man but you have to start working on being intelligent and don’t join the old school politics of trying to twist words and blame shit on NA when it’s your party that is at fault. You making yourself look bad to those of us paying attention. the good thing is that most people don’t pay attention and you better hope it stays that way cause if they did you wouldn’t get 50 votes next time.

      Let’s not say N.A. made a promise to her, let’s say government made a promise to her. So what Romain is saying is that if the government who is now in charge offers a student a trainee-ship and a position in government it will not be guaran…teed? It can never be guaranteed because if that government who is now in charge loses its position and the opposition steps in that student will be worth nothing to the new government? So the new government could not kept that promised to that student? It’s not about the opposition but about the student who has invested his/her time to come back home and work for his/her country. Furthermore, I do remember when she first applied for the position there were talks about her and Gracita not getting along. In fact I believe it was because of this she withdrew her application to later applied again. Now can we ask why was Mr. Semeleer chosen and not the rest from whom some do have a legal background? Was he really the most qualified? I believe Janssen should have been given the opportunity. Remember it’s not what N.A. promised her, its what the government of SXM promised her at the time and that promise should have been kept when the new government came in. If she was lacking certain experience they should have offered her training or another opportunity to work in another position for her country. Her time now was just wasted!See More

The last time he voted first, then came to the Teacher’s Actions at the the Great Bay Sports Auditorium to support us in our quest to get what was… ours. He claimed then with tears in his eyes that he had the “Testicular Fortitude” to stand up for what he believed in. However when our actions got to the Government Building, he came outside and stood silently by and never said a word to show support for us. Nor did he enter the meeting between our representatives and the ministers to publicly convince them that what they were doing was wrong.See More

Its all justified by citing our lack of experience but how can we ever get experience without the chance?
        Should we stay in a foreign land and gain experience and postpone our dream lives until we are politically appointed to a job we should have gotten honestly?

        Alston,i’ll take my questions a step further by asking what everybody here seemed to have neglected asking. Why are some people being PROMISED jobs? Regardless of where they were born and to what social category we want to put them,why are …some people being singled out for special treatment? If there is a job opening,why not give every QUALIFIED person a chance to solicit and be hired on grounds of their own merit. Then you can start adding the criteria of the preference being for someone from St Maarten. Seems to be this is a ‘vriendjes politiek’ issue going on here.See More

BASIC JOURNALISM 101, IF YOU’RE GOING TO STEAL THE SCOOP, CITE THE SOURCE.

Tell me, how does it feel? If it bothers you that people steal your “hard work”, and don’t credit you, then why do the same to others.

The local media, are taking info, scoops and stories from my blogs EVERYDAY, without a citation, or acknowledgment.

Why?

I upload more, fresher content, to a wider audience then ALL of the local media combined.

And if you don’t believe that, let me know the last time ANY of your major sources, pulled in 1 million hits over the weekend, or better yet. 5000 hits per hour to a blog or vlog.

I’m not the blogger to just randomly swipe info from, and not cite sources.

I site my sources no matter how incompetent, government bought and corrupt that they may be.

So dear local media.

Kindly find your own info, or site me.
That simple.

Now watch how I deal with this in the coming months.

THE LATEST UPDATE ON THE CASINO HEIST, ANOTHER SXM “EXCLUSIVE”

Police patrols at various locations on the island, could be seen responding to a robbery report Thursday afternoon minutes after five 0’clock.Police spokesman Inspector Ricardo Henson confirmed that the robbery suspects escaped in the bushes opposite the Atlantis Casino in Cupecoy after their bid to escape was foiled by a citizen driving a jeep.

The citizen who saw the two robbers trying to escape on a scooter, used his jeep to ram the scooter and the robbers, sending them crashing to the ground.

In the process, the two shot-guns used by the robbers along with the money from the robbery, fell to the ground as well.

The robbers took off running and managed to elude the police and the K-9 Unit in the bushes. The escape of the robbers was aided by the deminishing sunlight and the darkness that grew in the thick of the bushes.

The police did however manage to confiscate the weapons and the money from the robbery.

No one was reportedly hurt during the robbery and an investigation has been launched by the detective department of the St. Maarten police force.

The initial report from the police spokesman Inspector Ricardo Henson which was recorded during the hunt for the robbers, can now be heard via PodCast.
