High tides break koker door at Stewartville

Spring tides yesterday battered the door of a koker at Stewartville, Region Three and posed a threat of major flooding in neighbouring communities. However as the tide fell the water that had accumulated on the land quickly began to recede.

 

Up to press time last night, GuySuCo workers were carrying out emergency works to install a temporary koker to prevent flooding from recurring during the next tide which is scheduled for 05:14 this morning at a height of 3.01 meters.

Just around 5pm yesterday, residents of Stewartville, West Coast Demerara said they observed the water levels in the drains and trenches rising rapidly. It was upon inspection, one resident said, that he learnt that the koker door had broken away.

When the White man was Boss , all eleven of them had to be working, the country was more productive.

Those very people if given the opportunity to migrate to North America would take a job and work ten hours straight and even beg for overtime. The question is,Are Guyanese really patriotic  to Guyana?

You see wah a bin seying, White ppl demands progress either by the whip or by some means to ensure authority. Dey sey colored ppl goan tek over America, imagine the country under dem. By color I mean everybody who not Anglo-American.

America will be in serious trouble if Socialism takes over. The latest poll shows 70 percent of youths in America support socialism. The Democrats screwed the minds of a whole generation ! Bernie is busy preaching to the flock. 

Here we go. The specter of "socialism" dog whistle. Where are you when the rich screw up the economy and we taxpayers have to bail them out? Why no outcry against socialism for the rich?

Hey Knockabout Packoo (KP),

Dis ain't gat nothing to do with PNC, or because the majority of people in the picture are BLACK! This is a Guyanese ting dat going on since colonial times. Guyanese in the homeland, of all races, not known fuh fuss class wuk ethics. You of all people should know this.

Y'all sit here all day talking sheer skont! The country is a shithole after 28 years of PNC rule and counting, and 23 years of PPP rule. Yet y'all give this impression dat the PPP was golden years, when in fact is 50+ years of sheer underachieving by both parties and all Guyanese.

Imagine, you KP and the rest of kangalangs posting hay 24/7/365 can believe this pure shit, even after living in first world nations for decades. Y'all is a useless pack of dunces, guided by your BIGOTRY and nothing else!

Productivity is low, so wages are low and that’s why you have economic bottlenecks and poverty!  

You can hardly find workers because some getting remittances and don’t want to work and them working, six people doing the work of two!

How can an economy grow?

Another self proclaimed Burnhamite socialist shows up ! All you try deh ! 
The picture is classic socialism and it’s effect at work. Granger boldly declared that the PNC will stay close to Burnham’s principles. Yes, from his own mouth.

Well, all you deal with the effects of socialism now.

A lot of asinine assumptions being made about the people in the picture. Is this the kind of ignorance we can expect from PPP and their supporters?

One picture tells a thousand words. Yuh meking excuse fuh productivity. And the politicians want foreign ivestments.

Perhaps you can allay your ignorance by reading the article and try to understand the plank was a small part of the project. As you can see and maybe chose not to, it's night. They must have been working all day and all night. I know how things are done in Guyana with the limited resources available. You and the other moutho-prekkes, obviously, don't.

that does happen right here in Toronto, one man digging a hole and 6 standing around making sure he nah bury heself

Happens all over America. I've seen it here on the west coast. Seen it when I travel to the East Coast to visit. Only these stupid, dimwitted, PPP people posting hay think it is the exclusive domain of blacks or the PNC (their euphemism for black people). Sheer nonsense!

Thank you for the label. Without a derogatory label you and your kind have no argument and can only scream your ignorance for all and sundry. Why don't you be a man and refute my point about socialism for the rich?

That’s  what socialists do all day long. What if this and what if that ! They can’t find meaningful employment or generate wealth !

Still nothing to offer, huh? Come-on, my brother. You have a computer at your fingertips. Do some basic research. If you can't use Google, you can use Bing to research how to use Google.

There were some excesses!  But there were also real risk to the system, some due to government policy!

You would not like to know what would have happened if the Govt did not intervene!

You statement reeks ignorance of the financial markets and interdependencies!

The "excesses" were not just in the banks. The advocates of subsidized housing who made the GSE's out to be criminals and fostered a culture that led to maids in California who were making $25K a year buying $900K homes (also an "excess") also had something to do with it. These folks, think then Congressman Barney Frank and his cohorts, were screaming about "fair housing", and unfair lending practices. The resulting lower lending standards and guarantees to banks (govt.  being the backstop) in essence created the problem.

Banks are not stupid! They won't make loans to high risk individuals and jeopardize their system! The govt. , including Barney Frank and his buddies, gave the wink and nod. I recall several years before the crisis the then White House warned of "systemic risk" in the system. Frank and his buddies screamed about the white house destroying housing for the poor!

This is the history to the bailouts in 2008. And yes, Congress was a huge part of causing the crisis, not just the banks. Frank got off scot free, just like the bankers. Sits around pontificating now, talking shit, and collecting he pension. No penalty for him, just like no penalty for the bankers!

This fool and his friends put a gun to the bankers heads, had them lower the lending standards, and essentially guaranteed the bailouts of GSE's and insurers by the banks.

That’s why I said govt policy.  They loosen the regulations which created [artificial] demand and the banks did their thing, all insured by the Govt!  This then spawned the mushroom derivative market aided again by loosening regulation!

Sooner or later the piper had to be paid!

So blaming the bankers in general is a red herring!  when  liberals start talking about prosecuting bankers, it was to quell the outrage and shield their own hides!  They had their hands deep in the mess!

The whole shyte started under Clinton!
