Harris At Large on Sunday! Program: #21
Hi Folks! Happy Sunday! This Facebook Live Show is coming to you live from my home in Black Bay, Vieux Fort, Saint Lucia. I am your Host – Edward Harris.
Here is my selected Quote for the week:
“Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see further.” —Thomas Carlyle
As usual, the notes of my weekly programme will be posted on my archive at www.stluciasimplybeautiful.com While visiting you can catch up on over 400 of my articles archived on the site. I strongly encourage you to read the detailed notes provided on the website. Currently working on my E-book – Best 100 Articles by Ed Harris – 2005-2008. It is a journey between 2005 to 2008 looking at what I wrote about then, and what if I was writing at this time, what I will have to write about now. The world has changed.
My Thought for the week:
Let us keep looking out for each other as no one can look out for himself in these trying times. Let us be each other’s keeper.
Anniversary Wishes:
To all those who are celebrating an anniversary or anniversaries this week, I wish you and your loved ones, Happiness with lots of Blessings!
Saint Lucia Today:
St. Lucia Simply Beautiful and Blessed!
The Board of Directors of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) approved a loan of US$30 million to Saint Lucia to support economic recovery and resilience as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ECCB and the ECCU Bankers’ Association have come to the assistance of persons affected by COVID 19 pandemic with extension of payment of the principal of their loans for another year. The relief will be granted on a case by case basis.
To God be the glory, great things, he does for his people. St. Lucia continues to have an enviable position as it relates to the COVID 19 pandemic. We are Death Free! Our country as it prepares to enter phase 3 in the process of opening up to countries within the Bubble and beyond, our prayers must continue and our adherence to the established protocols must be maintained. Remember to wash your hands, wear mask and maintain social distancing.
Politics in the Region and the United States of America:
Guyana: The house of assembly passed a 329 Billion G$ Appropriation Bill. It is hoped that the allocations will be spent wisely in the best interest of the nation. Substantial emphasis has been placed on Agriculture, with revitalising the sugar industry as a top priority.
COVID 19 cases continue to rise in the country and further restrictions had to be applied, while the leaders in the country have called upon the police to enforce the protocols, especially the wearing of masks.
I had the pleasure of listening to the We are One Guyana Concert last night, and it was great as all artistes addressed the issue of Unity among the six races.
Cuba: The USA has imposed more sanctions on Cuba. This is another political act to gain the votes of Cubans residing in Florida.
Barbados is finally making a move to pass legislation in recognising members of the LGBT community.
Trinidad & Tobago, the twin-island state is yet to open up the country’s airports and get traveling in the region moving again.
Politics in the U.S.A.
Speaking to a few persons in Saint Lucia about politics in the USA, I get the feeling that many people are not interested and adopt a position that it is not their concern. Our very existence is tied to what happens in the USA – remittances to family and friends, residence and work status, general human rights treatment, etc, etc. We should not only try to know what is going on, but we should have groups backing one of the two parties, and hosting Election Watch Parties on election night.
Both presidential candidates continue to be on the campaign trail competing for the hearts and minds of the voters. The polls are moving in the path of a win for VP Biden but I am very concerned about voter suppression tactics being applied by President Trump and his strong men.
If the saying – that who lies first wins, President Trump has gone into high gear with his disinformation campaign whereby he controls the narrative at any given point. His outrageous claims cannot be ignored by the media so the headlines belong to The Donald. It should be interesting to watch his performance on Tuesday evening. All that Biden has to do is to stay focussed and keep President Trump on course. I see COVID 19 and Health Care as the defining argument. These are the subjects that The Donald doesn’t want to talk about.
President Trump nominated the replacement Justice Ginsburg before she has been laid to rest. What manner of man is he? We now await the OCTOBER SURPRISE.
The next 37 days, leading up to the elections in the USA will be nail-biting. It is my humble belief that Yahweh will put a hand.
Staying Alive Financially:
Hope my audience has moved to take charge of their financial future, identifying and implementing at least one side hustle. As long as COVID 19 continues on the path it is heading, with approximately 1,000 deaths per day, things are going to get worst; the stock market is likely to decline substantially during the last quarter. Stay away from high priced stocks. The next 3 months are going to be critical to our assessing the global economic future.
Let us start study groups to inform us on Businesses, Investments and Buying clubs. We can no longer go it alone. Remember teamwork, make the dream work! We must do something before it is too late. This pandemic is bringing families together, many wh can no longer afford to pay rent are moving back to family homes. Some home owners are planning to downsize. Changes are taking place in every aspect of our lives. Let us get ready to face the reality of the moment head-on.
