Barbados is truly a paradise

If you have been reading any of the Barbados blogs like Barbados Free Press or Barbados Underground you may be thinking that Barbados is a very corrupt island with politicians continually sucking the blood of the sufferers.

However this may not necessarily be the only view.

Overall I think the politicians have done Barbados pretty good of course you probably know that Errol Barrow is probably my favourite Barbados Politician.

I like our health system...I like it that if my child suddenly had an asthma attack I could rush her to the QEH and get quick medical attention without health insurance....I like how Primary School Children are provided with school meals for $1.00 a week.....I like how you can attend top schools like Combermere or Ellerslie free of charge....I like that if you are running for Prime Minister it doesn't matter if your father was Black and your mother white....(David Thompson,Tom Adams)...they are a lot of things I like about Barbados and even though it may be true that some politicians have been sucking the blood of the sufferers,many have not...and by the way,i can now say that I am a supporter of the DLP.

Ichirouganaim

I hate to look at the Barbados tourists site that give the history of Barbados.The ones that talk of Columbus discovering these islands and the other foolish tales that the Bob Marley and Burning Spear called 'mis-education'.I agree with them as a matter of fact Burning Spear referred to Christopher Columbus as a 'damn blasted liar'.Thank god for Rastafari.One of the funniest stories is the one of the bearded fig tree and the name Los Barbados which was supposed to mean 'the bearded one'.In the words of Gary Cole from the book reflections;The Colonization of Barbados is one of the darkest events and evil stories of modern history.Four centuries ago,Spanish and Portuguese slavers started to kidnap,kill and drive out the thousands of peaceful Indians found on the island the Indians called Ichirouganaim.The exact location of the island was a carefully kept secret but Spanish and Portuguese soldiers and sailors knew the island as the barbarous island,"Los Barb…
