  Methinks you first gave us a dose of Economics with your outstanding piece on the gloabl recession.. I have barely scratched the surface here .And can’t i be serious for once?  lol @Madam SSD   Guess my gripe is that 9ja things get reported with an otherwordly slant   as tho its excrement from Mars   when equally lousy stuff also happens in the western world Hopefully if you pressurize your senator hard enough the school will arrive lol@Debbie   We can only hope so too .. And that the contracts do not go to companies that have high level politicians on their boards

I have to agree, some of that stuff could have been taken out. I rather they build sclhoos. I have been waiting for the construction of an elementary school right here in my neighborhood for 3 years. Its has been bumped back 5 years in a row!!!!! And to imagine, that money for sclhoos and school construction was removed from the plan? There is no way they can make me understand that that made sense, sorry, no way no how.Anyway, I agree some of the moves over here are just more sophisticated techniques of what we Naija folks know as ‘Naija politics’. But that is the way things are the world over. At least in the US senators and Congress men/women get crucified if they mess up and lose their seats. Democracy at its best. ddmfvxccro [link=]gyssddnsvd[/link]

  Guess so, just wondered if there were no other cricital things that needed money to be innjected than these .@Naijababe   U wan travel? lol@Buttercup   Guess Govts have the perogative of selecting raisng taxes, or spending their reserves .@Adejoh   Furniture for hommeland security for $248million beggars belief bro .. Well if they translate to money paid out to people who would otherwise be out of work, guess it makes sense overall @Teeee   Unfortunately, if it were Naija, close to 90% of the funds would end up in banks in the UK, Switzerland and all the other places they siphon our “National Cake” to   Erm.. Are you sure you are not the only one who wants the snow this seriously???? lol

pghk, 看完你之前的文, 我 apply 了張 Enjoy card. 果然好快(兩星期內)已拿到, 同個 credit limit 好高. 另外, 個銀行職員 sell 我開個 Preferred Banking acuocnt. 佢話不用 maintain 一個 minimum, 只要做一個存款 plan, 每月 1500蚊, 存5年, 十年後可取回 11萬. 我無即時開, 返到屋企, 先知是個 insurance plan. 11萬中, 只有9萬2 是 guaranteed, 另外1萬8 是估計回報. 我恒生無 acuocnt, 找數比較煩, 所以想開個戶口, 但保險 plan 真係有D 怕怕, 或者遲D 開個普通 acuocnt 先. Thanks again for all the useful information you shared with us in your blog. ^___^
