” Open Season ” … Prod by Strat Carter

Well, it seemingly, isn’t currently a subject, that’s hitting the headlines, but it’s a subject that never really leaves the minds of black people ….

and, following on from my previous post, it seems that as this piece relates, we still have to be very mindful of our place, when dealing with the ….

Good ol’ ….

Boys In Blue ……

Well, these words deserve a place, way up in these ignorant feds’, who still seem to think that when they see us, we’re a target for them to aim at, as if it’s ….

Well ……

Open Season ……

A Few Thoughts… Before… written by Big Virge 7/11/2015

….. American voters, go to war !!!!!
or, should that be, Trump and Hilary … ???

The war, for them, is almost over … Thankfully !!!

However, it’s been a very interesting lead up to one of the most, highly anticipated results, to a Presidential Election !!!

As many keep repeating, it’s a landmark election, especially after Barack Obama’s election as the, Huh Hmmm …..

First, Black President ….

According to whose version of history you believe … ?!?
… which could now be followed by the First, female President !

In the last week, the Chicago Cubs create history by coming back from 3-1 down against the Cleveland Indians, to win their first World Series in over 100 years, only to then have the Irish Rugby Union Team, do a similar thing against New Zealand, days later, 111 years in their case !!!!! Amazingly, after the Kiwis had gone on a record breaking, 18 game winning run …. only to give it up, with a first victory, for Ireland against them !

Anyone seeing the trend, and getting a little nervous, regarding the trend ?

Well, as both an Oakland Raiders and Liverpool FC supporter, the fact that on the weekend before the election, they both, for the first time, in quite some time, top their respective divisions ….. Liverpool, of course, much more recently, than the Raiders, however, the Raiders did just beat the current, Superbowl champions !!!!!

Okay so, is this the week of upsets, as most now seem to believe that the Trumpster, will finally get, ” Trumped “, by Americas’ voting populous.

I have never believed that he couldn’t win, but, after the, again, amazing revelation of a further, FBI investigation into Hilary’s emails, and the then withdrawal of said investigation, conveniently, days before final voting, one thing that does seem realistic, is that, ” The Trumpster’ “, may well be right, when he says, that this election could be rigged, however, I would suggest that it would NEED TO BE RIGGED, for his Ignorant Ass to win … !!!!!

As certain Facebook posts have suggested, I am grateful to him, for showing us a level of truth, in terms of how, ” his type “, of … ” White American “, thinks, behaves and acts, because nobody can sit there talking about chips on black peoples’ shoulders anymore, and that prejudice, bigotry & racism, are just figments of our imaginations’ ….

…. that we are, even in 2016, STILL suffering inequalities, in how we’re treated, as if the last 12 months of US Policing hasn’t given enough credence to substantiate, such arguments … !!!!!

I have said before, and will say it again, black people need to recognise the kind of thinker, Hilary Clinton, has proven herself to be, and that, hugs with Jay Z, Queen Bey’, and support from Mr. Obama, should not indicate to them, that she has, any allegiance, or, Real Interest, in the struggles, of ……

Poor Black People !?!

Margaret Sanger is the name I will say again, and suggest, that people look for what Madame Clinton, has had to say about her.

It is also quite interesting to see the level of Global Stock Market Activity, that indicates that, Mr. Trump’s arrival in the Oval Office, would seemingly have HUGE ramifications, for world economies and currency values … !!!!!

Nothing to turn your nose up at !

I care not, who they vote in, from the perspective of having no particular wish to return to the US, in any kind of a hurry, however, as has been the case with Brexit’, I do recognise the importance of this election.

Trumps’ references in the last couple of days, to a Brexit’ type, shock victory, is NOT … that far fetched, if you log & think on the aforementioned events, however, Hilary winning in conjunction with Theresa Mays’ arrival at number 10 Downing Street, may also not be quite so coincidental … ???

It’s really gonna be, quite the night !!!

Will all the negative stuff about Trump, be enough to get Hilary in, or will her apparent indiscretions, via her email accounts, amongst other things, be what swings the voters minds ???

White America, in my humble opinion, are not so far from being prepared to let Donald make … ” America Great Again ” …

or should that be … KKK again … ?!?

Just a question, not an accusation, although it’s clear who the KKK want to win … !!!!!

So, many things going on, including a judicial decision that has stirred the Brexit pot, across the water …. leaves me thinking that, nothing in this election for US President is quite as it seems ….. or beyond happening ….

So, for now, i’m gonna leave it that, as voting begins to decide the winner,
and I listen to a young black male from America, in a documentary about the US Election, explain how he thinks that, Liberalism does not serve black people well …. and how that should seemingly, outweigh, Donalds’ rather inflammatory comments about race ….

…. to then listening to some white supremacists, who then throw the curve ball, that indicates that, voting for Clinton, means a vote to continue what America has been going through for the last 30 years, and a continuance of the status quo ….. which for the feminists, railing on about Trump, also affirms her standing alongside a confirmed, Liar and Cheater, who showed ….

What exactly … ???

A TOTAL, lack of respect for his wife ….

It is amazing to hear people speak about this election, as if it’s solely about, upholding, ” American Values ” …. whatever they are … ???

One has to wonder what will happen …. and how this subsequently, will affect the world …..

Which is why, before we get to finally, know the score ….

I’m dropping a few ….
of my thoughts …. before ….

Bless Up People ….

The Virge out of here …..

So, who are the REAL Teefs’ … ? written by Big Virge 6/10/2015

Okay so, not so many blog posts these days, unless something,
REALLY …. Stirs me to write sumthin’ … !!!!!

Well, apart from having some kind of Alcatrazesque, barbed wire security protection, placed alongside the front of the property next door to where I currently rent … due to my evidently, NOT SO …. ” Diplomatic “, neighbours from England, who still, some months after moving in, treat me like some kind of freak of nature, not worthy, to be found anywhere near their ilk … SMH !!!!!

Anyway, get it CLEAR Fukwits … I RENT … so, targeting me, really makes no sense when the wealthy people, are the white folks who surround me !!?!!

Anyhow, i’ve been fortunate that things of a violent, or, pilfering nature, have been far enough away from my place of residence, for me to have not felt, particularly uncomfortable, with much that has been going on here, of recent.

However, coming out of my place in the early afternoon, on Monday, it was somewhat shocking & disturbing, to find the majority of my rear windscreen, either on the ground, or, on my backseat, due to somebody attempting to send me a message, that, was either, supposed to scare me, or, some fool, attempting to rob something of value, that was left in my car ?

Well, UNLUCKY … you punk !!!!!

I’m not foolish enough to do that again, having already had a jacket lifted, presumably, due to me perhaps, leaving the car open, with a jacket in plain sight, or, some such foolishness.

Once bitten … Twice … DENIED … !!!!!

Well, the damage was truly shocking … !!!

I’ve now heard everything, from using a simple spark plug, which would be able to shatter the glass, to, as a couple of Black Barbadians have said to me, it not being, too far fetched to believe that, due to the area I live in, one of the white folks in the area, (maybe my neighbours ???) … deciding to pay some little street urchin to do it, to try to get me to leave …. !!!!!

….. to ….

the idea that my alarm, which clearly didn’t go off … only working, where the sensors are placed, which is along the side, rather than throughout the vehicle ?!?

Well, either my thief is a Toyota specialist, or he just had a moment of enlightenment !!!

My feeling is that this was a very early hours, smash & grab, like 4.30 – 5-30 a.m, type of time, as the nocturnal man I’ve become, would of been up, right up to 3.30 fa sure, on the night in question.

Anyway, it is what it is, someone attempted a move, it’s success, well, damage to a car … ???

Well done … Jackass !!!!!

However, what it has exposed is how the REAL THIEVES of this world, work their magic, without ever really being challenged by the, ever so dumbed down, programmed, slave mentality thinking, sheople of todays’ world.

Now the individual I spoke with at, Brydens’ Insurance, was indeed, a very cool individual, so, in fairness to them, to protect their identity, they shall remain nameless, but, upon conversation with said individual, it was evident just how these snakes of todays’, corporate industry, especially insurers, be ripping people off, left right and centre !!!!!

Now Camrys’ are rare in Barbados, and for some reason, hold some degree of status here, well that status is reflected in the insurance costs people !!!!!

So, you’d expect the allegedly, most advanced, of the Caribbean islands, would have things in place to effect, immediate, and speedy actions and repairs right ?

Errr WRONG !!!!!

Firstly, Nassco are on some fukry’ policy, that basically means, parts are very rarely available immediately, presumably, to save them costs on storage … ???

Again … FOR THEM … to save costs !!!!!

They choose to keep stock levels, ” low “, which, translates into, customers being made to wait, in this case, 3 ENTIRE, F’ing weeks, for a windscreen replacement to be sourced !!!?!!!

Do planes not transport people in a day, or lets say, from Japan, in a couple of days now !?!

So, let’s be real for, just for a sec’ … Camrys’ are popular cars in the … wait …

US of A, just a few hours, across the Rasshole’ water !!!!!

So, can someone explain to me, why a customer of a company that has a site in the centre of Barbados, cannot obtain a part, faster than three weeks, without having to pay some, triple the price fee, to get it ???

Does that seem very advanced … ???

Errr …. NOT in my book, but hey, part of the stupid f’ing reasoning is … Toyotas are such reliable cars, that parts are rarely needed …..

Didn’t know windscreens had a functional role, other than to complete the car, so, that it’s Hmmm … COMPLETE … !?!?!

NOT … !!! … so it drives better, or, performs better, but, so that all the other parts that are functional, and, drivability dependent, can be allowed to do so, with some degree of comfort.

What kind of ass is that nonsense … ?!?

Okay, so, moving on, the insurers, Brydens, have a clause in their policy that only allows for vehicle replacements to only be availed until the 2000 dollar excess is used up …..

Hmmm, fair enough, but when, as per this instance, there is an exceptional circumstance, that is nothing to do with the driver, but, the f’ing idiot people at Toyota here, that cost and inconvenience, is then put on the customers plate, rather than the company who has a relationship with the insurance company, that provides business for them, in such circumstances.

Are y’all with me so far … ???

Okay, let’s continue … so, of course my first question to, said individual, at Brydens was,

Can’t you guys hurry up the Toyota guys, to ensure that I don’t need a hire car for more than two weeks.

Then, the truth started to come out about storage, and cutting costs, and oh yes … Differing opinions, bordering on extensive discussions, which sound like arguments, regarding their willingness to, shake a leg, with some speed, for the customers benefit ….

Barbados is renowned for the INCREDIBLY, bad customer service … !!!!! … ESPECIALLY, if you’re NOT WHITE, are black, and were born elsewhere, even if your parents were born and raised Bajans … ?!?

However, this is not a totally fair reflection of all the people you may have to deal with, some, like said individual, at Brydens, was very frank and honest about the way things work here.

This however, does not excuse the standards that seem to be accepted, as acceptable, when they are so far from being that !!!!!

Is this what makes tourists say, “They love the place” … ???

…. because they can return to the dark ages for a while whilst being pampered and complimented by the good ol’, slaves of Barbados in the sun ???

Doesn’t seem like the tourist board have their priorities straight !!!

It is an, Absolute Disgrace, that in 2015, insurance payments that can amount to large amounts of money, do not get sourced to cover an unfortunate incident, like having your rear windshield smashed by some street villain ….. !!!!!

Insignificant as it is, in the bigger issues of peoples lives, it is not something that should be swept under the carpet.

Poor people suffer, due to inabilities to better their surroundings from a financial perspective, those of us, slightly further up the ladder, work hard & save, so that we can pay to elevate ourselves from having to struggle, or live in, not so pleasant, environments, but then, as has been established from rap to corporate business, this does not necessarily avail a blissful existence.

Mo’ Money … Mo’ Problems … !!!!!
as per, Notorious B.I.G.

So, before people get it twisted, there is a need for some perspective, but, these thieving companies should be exposed for the practises they employ, that do not benefit their customers, whether they do or don’t have lots of money, or, the right skin colour/connections etcetera …..

So, let me guess, the Toyota windscreens are so, Bad Ass, they just fix themselves, when the villains go, and we drivers never know any better !!!!!

Errrr NOT …. so, I get sorted with a replacement, which is not a 1600CC vehicle, as specified as being the only vehicles my policy avails.

Now i’m all for favours, but, come on now, it shouldn’t be, as a favour, or, due to my challenging the words of the policy, that I receive, a vehicle befitting of my size, but, one comparable to the car I drive, that I pay these teefs’, money to insure.

Okay so, great, got the car organised, but remember, only for two weeks, so, it’ll have to go back, if it takes three weeks to facilitate the repair to mine !!!

Leaving me, without a vehicle … !!?!!

Ahhhhh, but if I get my wallet out, that can be sorted … as if I don’t pay a yearly fee which may not even, as is the case for most, be drawn upon during the year we pay cover for ???

Errrr again, UNACCEPTABLE … !!!!!

How much teefing’ is going on here exactly ???

My car, which was the victim of a robbery attempt, has lost nothing, except a windshield for a few weeks !!!!!

Hold on though, wait …….

The vehicle I have been provided with, will still have an excess that I will have to pay for !!! …. and oh, hold on once more, due to the hire company … (Venture, opposite the airport), providing you with a full tank of fuel, and therefore, asking that the vehicle be returned, with a full tank, I have to pay them a 100 dollar deposit, just in case it isn’t returned full up !!!!!

Wow, trust issues or what ?!?

Insurance & Hire companies in Bim’, as well as Nassco, have got some way to go to match the service levels found in other parts of the world, that really are ADVANCED, in terms of this stuff.

…. and, as Lexus is part of Toyota, these guys should be held to standard, as Lexus DO NOT PLAY, when it comes to service, and I know this from personal experience, which makes the way that Nassco operate here, an embarrassment to their good name, in my view !!!!!

The likes of Lexus, being the benchmark for, excellent service, with a smile, that does not deviate, until you, the customer, is TOTALLY HAPPY … !!!!!

Teefin’ goes on with them, like any other corporate institution, i’m sure, but, they have at least recognised, that wherever possible, if they can stretch to accommodate, they should and do, for their customers.

I have just received my hire car, so, am not yet aware of whether i’m to have such courtesies extended to me, due to the situation I have found myself in, through doing nothing other than parking outside where I live !!!

If this is … ” Advanced ” … Barbados … ???

DAMN … !!!!!

Y’all need to check wha’ part you reach, with your advancements, because POOR policing, seems to have allowed for this to happen, POOR business practises, are delaying a speedy and efficient service, and, excesses are costing me money, that shouldn’t even be on the radar, according to what Brydens has already had out of my ass, for at least, a year and half of no claims being made, and that is no small amount of money, let me tell ya !!!!!

The only Excess that needs to be addressed, is the excessive, buck passing, and robbery of customers, who are paying for services, that, hmmmm … they need to be availed … let’s say, for arguments sake … within 3 weeks !!!!!!

It’s such a shame that an island as beautiful as this, with, some highly intelligent and resourceful people, could be resigned to stick to the dubious standards of a greedy few, who manage, as well as be, stuck in the rut of subservience, which is followed, religiously, by the majority of employees, who are either, robotic clones, or, amazingly, attitude filled, inept, or, unreliable workers.

However, to just make a final point on the original issue, robbery, and the general vibe of things in Bim’ currently.

Well, even the pick up driver for my vehicle , was quick to state that, the robbery is indicative of the problems the underbelly of Barbados, currently face, and, just how hard it has become to trust anyone anymore. As he stated, he leaves work, leaves people alone, and is happiest when he can close his front door to the world, due to the ignorance, and, criminality that is getting closer and closer to home.

These are global issues to me, but, I live in a very small part of it now, so, it would be a lie to say, I am not somewhat disturbed, however, if we do not stop these corporate thieves from stealing from the coffers, that we all pay into, for services, and for government agencies to provide safe environments for us to live in, these acts of reckless, lawlessness, may be an increasing problem, that, cannot be so easily nullified !

I have hopefully dealt with, an exception to the rule at Brydens, but, as they told me, it’s those above, who have to be persuaded to do what, essentially, should require … NO PERSUASION …

As for my vehicle return ….

I guess like Bob done say …..

“I’m still waiting ……”

Chuh …..

Barbados in 2015 ….. !!!

Pride & Industry … ???

Hmmm LOTS of Pride alright, but even more … TOMFOOLERY …

Chuupse …..

Teefing going on fa sure, but there are a number of Teefs’, who are not breaking into cars, they’re the ones who sit on Corporate Boards, demanding we pay, exorbitant amounts for parts, and then, pay pretty high rates of insurance, for the same cars, that cover about as much as dey’ ass !!!!!

Chuh’ …..

If you’re wondering how these companies make money, well, i’ve been advised there is somewhere in the region of a 500% mark up on parts, which has to be added for them to apparently make a profit, because the 212% duty, on new vehicles is crippling, but, not as much as the tasty handouts that the Government seem to be making on all things motor vehicle related on this island !!!

The same ministers who seem to be able to spend 300 thousand dollars, and more, to buy themselves and their family members, Mercedes, Range Rovers, and the like !!!!!

If only the villains would aim their aspirations higher ….. they might feed themselves for a year by just teefin’ a wheel and tire, from some of the TRULY, High fliers ….

Not that i’d encourage that sort of thing … of course … !!!!!

Bless up y’all. and don’t just take what they offer, ask and enquire, as to what you are entitled to, and check to see, whether there are companies offering better deals that suit you and your needs ….

Don’t let them play you like a fool … be shrewd, or as the individual at Brydens defined me as being … PRUDENT … in your dealings with these companies !!!!!

Bless, stay safe and good out there ……

The Virge …..
