The Olympic Gardens Police report that about 11:45 am, lawmen acting on information conducted an operation in the area. A garbage bin was searched during the operation and the weapon was found inside ...more »
I believe that it is morally wrong for our political leaders to enforce a law that states that women must retire at age 60 and men at 65 within the private and public sectors.
In Jamaica, about 20 per cent of our political leaders are over their respective retirement ages. Why? Are they above the law?
I am sure that the law is being enforced why not with political leaders? How come they are still shamelessly going to work every morning?
By their own ignoring of that law they are demonstrating that they are more important to Jamaica than our teachers, our doctors and nurses, our lawyers, and our police officers.
By their ignoring that law, are they stating that they are superior human beings to non-political Jamaicans?
Come to think of it, what is the qualification to be a politician? How and where were they certified? The certification of teachers, nurses, doctors and lawyers is well established by their years of education and/or training. Where is that political school of certification? What is the period of training? When was the last time that a politician has ever retired from that job -- except for reasons of "ill health".
What is so important to them that they all, by their own choice, have to die being a politician rather than retiring gracefully and enjoying the "fruits of their honest stewardship".
Come on Mr Politician, Ms Politician, it's retirement time. Allow job space for the young and potentially aspiring politician to join that group of public servants to demonstrate their new vision of a new Jamaica.
Let us all make a conscious decision to live our love for our country Jamaica.
