    god please help the country, those who are poor and will feel this bad budget even harder. Food already so expensive, and this budget will make it worse. God please help the people who cant find jobs, and those who will never be equipped to even ask for a job. god will find a way to this mess

    It is so amazing that we just checking the budget with an earth quake which clearly states that something is definitely wrong. These earthquakes getting more frequent. It’s a sign that we may be in for a serious earthquake or tsunami etc. It was said that the little boy that drowned recently went under a some abnormal water system or something like that. We need to seriously check ourselves. This nation without the DLP gone to the dogs anyhow. God says he will punish the wicked. Bout here anything goes. We have forgotten the God who created us and defy him in every way.

    The residents of Barbados need to turn their hearts back to God. We were taught how to live as God’s people. While most things do not remain the same our relationship with God must that we as a people will be preserved.
