Set like a gem in the crown of South America, nestled on the North-Eastern shoulder, defying the raging Atlantic Ocean, Guyana's many waterways reflect the source of it's name "The Land of Many Waters"

One of these days we'll actually be able to have a real discussion regarding this whole thing. To my mind, everyone is right. We can't forget the colonial past as it is still part of the foundation of Guyana. At the same time, to talk about the problems is disgusting especially when nothing happens as a result of it. It is very stupid to blame people that have been dead for 10 and 20 years for whats happening today. Did these guys put a spoke in Guyana's wheel since they died? Did those alive today not the have the will and desire to get rid of those spokes and get on with their lives?

The bottom line is that Guyana is a place full of mad people. How do I get to that conclusion? If one keeps doing the same thing and expect a different result, it is beyond logic. 2 + 2 will always be equal to 4 regardless how you twist and turn it. For Guyanese, they somehow expect that some day the answer will be 5. If the Guyanese people keep voting the way they do, if they keep putting into Government the same people that have kept the country in a state of stagnation, then how the hell would anyone expect a change? In dynamic societies, governments are replaced as soon as stupidity shows up. Why not Guyana? We still doing the same nonesense all the time. Expecting one day that 2 + 2 = 5 is madness.

Look at what we have now, a completely lawless society. Look at today for instance, someone that knows someone had an argument with them and shot them. Completely oblivious to the consequences of the crime simply because they know that nothing really will be done.

As an investor, Anthony, would you put your money where you can be killed for simply having it? Would you invest in a place where if they find out where you have your money, they'll come to kill you and there's nothing to stop them? First thing you would do is to put your money where you can work it and not have to be worried about your safety. I certainly would not.

Guyana is doomed. We just have to accept that.
