Pension is now $18,200GYD ($91 USD/mo) btw

Public assistance is now $7300 GYD/mo- that’s $36.60USD. This is supposed to be for people with disabilities, dependent children without parent(s)  etc.


so much more to say

the little boy with the bandaged eye  who i saw sitting on Regent St yesterday with a box asking for donations so he could have eye surgery to save his sight.

all the other people, including a friend of mine who was just diagnosed with breast cancer, who have to worry about if, where and when they’re going to get the money to pay for care and treatment…

meanwhile jagdeo, hammie n all the rest o dem rolling in d million$$- fuckers
