Organized Confusion The At The PeopleS Expense

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – In the midst of thehigh level of confusion around theplay on words liketrajectory,theconstant repositioning ofthis governing coalitionwith regards to COHO, the petition to the United Nationsand continued liquidity support, one thing remainsglaringly constant: Theeverydayplightandhopelessness felt by the average citizens of this country.

The debris of the collision is a direct reflection of the emotional state of the country Read more
