  • BAHAMAS HAS NO PLANS WITH BARBADOS. IF YOU LIVE HERE AND KNOW HISTORY “THAT WHEN OUR FIRST PREMIER MADE THE BAHAMIAN DOLLAR PEG WITH THE U.S.A.~ THAT HAS ESTABLISH ALL DIFFERENCE THE BAHAMAS HAS OVER ALL CARIBBEAN.” NOT TO SAY THAT WE ARE BETTER; JUST IN A SENSE THAT WE HAVE NO DEPPRECIATE VALUE ON OUR MONETARY MATTERS AND IF WE CONVERGE WITH BARBADOS OR ACTUALLY THE REST OF ‘CARICOM’ THEN WE COULD SEE OTHER ISSUES OCCUR THAT WASN’T FORSEEN LIKE IMMIGRATION, LAUNDERING, AND MOST OF ALL SCROUNGING ON LAND THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO THEIR TRIBE. AND ON THAT NOTE IT IS A PROCESS LEGALLY BINDING THAT IS IN OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM WHERE ANYONE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD CAN MOVE OR RESIDE IN THE BAHAMAS; BUT THROUGH A SYSTEM. JUST AS THE U.S.A. HAS TO NOTE ONE OF OUR ALLIES “FRIENDS” AS WELL AND THEY DO HELP US AND ALSO YOU HAVE TO THINK OF IT AS NOT WHAT WE DON’T HAVE IT IS WHAT WE DO!!!! SO WHY THEN DO THEY WANT TO CONVERT TOGETHER SO BADLY?
