    Does the man ever stay home and work? He spends more time taking vacations at taxpayers expense than doing what he was elected to do.

        But Man Dog; you see this here: ” out to get a life.” if that is correct then this is wrong: “for crying out loud.”

        In the former you are advising them to get a life, but it might be better to use the term “art” instead of out, now I know the word is not actually art; but since I have difficulties spelling the appropriate word which is a simple one i’ll simple leave it alone.
        You did not error, you just don’t know how to spell the correct word.

        And that is my observation; you can now assassinate me if you so desire!

        Anyway, Man Dog, for whatever it is worth; note: your linguist; “you guys out!” It should actually be “you guys’ ought.”
        Here is how that word is used in the case of a moral obligation; it is an auxiliary, verb used to express duty, or moral.

        It is used to emphasized that one knows about something, because of one experienced it.

        So, here it is: ‘I Francisco “ought” to know you are not fluent nor familiar with the English language from an educational or grammatical point of view.
        If you erred the first time you should have discovered ” out” is a totally different word to ought, and do not confuse that with the word aught!

        In any event, since Roosevelt is your linguistic professor, and doctor of fart: I could not expect anything better or different from his student.

    These guys often make a big song and dance about these meetings. But the people of the region have felt nor seen any improvements in their standard of living.

    After every one of these meetings the desperate plight of the majority remains the same or even worsens. National debt, poverty, unemployment, bad roads, poor healthcare, food insecurity, high inflation, spiraling crime, massive public corruption,political division remain steadfastly in place.

    Most people of the Caribbean consider these annual meetings as a time when the Heads of CARICOM travel first class, dress in expensive suits, stay in expensive suites, eat expensive meals, drink expensive wines, at the expense of the poor, suffering indigenous inhabitants of our region.
