I visited Freeport two months ago, what happened to the beaches? We saw trash everywhere along the beach near our hotel, it stunk so bad when the wind shifted. The rats and roaches were huge too, doesn't your government realize tourist money is first on the list? We'll never waste our hard earned money in your country ever again.

The U.S. embassy has just issued another crime warning against the Bahamas. It is in newspapers, media and on the net, this is an outrage. Can someone please tell me how I'm going to keep my business running without tourist? I've never missed paying my taxes, but I swear, I'm going to close up shop, and stop paying them. This PM keeps giving us the Bull that he's going to do something about it, and it's all just a bunch of false promises, he should resign from office right now, he is a liar and a crook. Our country is failing fast and he just talks a lot of Bull, we the Bahamian people should all stop paying taxes until we see some results.

Seems like this island has really gone down hill since I left in 73. So so so sad. Went there in 56 when I was a very young girl. Worked for the paper for quite a few years. Very disheartening to see what has happened to this island since I left. It was the greatest place on earth to live many many years ago.

Another Bahamian proud to be a murderer at the age of 21, hang this piece of trash. Our country is being held hostage by theses punks, hang them all. Our corrupt government raising our taxes to house these worthless Bahamians in jail, hang them in public. Our pastors and churches should stay out of politics, and try to be honest people instead of molesters of women and children, hang them too. I've been told by family members who live in the U.S., that our country is making head line news because of our critical crime problem. I refuse to pay any more taxes to this corrupt government if it's going to be misused! Hang them too! My business is hurting so badly because of this crime wave, when is this corrupt government going to realize their also destroying the plate they steal from too.
