  4. Dear sexy,if the bahamians make you sick you should pack up and leave the BAHAMAS.KEEP THE ……..OUT AND STAY OUT.THE WORDS OF THE GREAT SIR LYDEN;”IF BAHAMIANS AREN’T PREPARED TO STAND UP AND FIGHT AND DEFEND THEIR OWN BAHAMAS THEN YOU DON’T DESERVE TO HAVE IT”.

  5. Pray tell, I trust these comments were not made by people who live in the Bahamas. If Bahamians make someone sick then they know where the airport or any docking facilities are. Take the first thing smoking OUT.

  6. BP, I am posting this again, I don’t see the first one.

    This is so tragic. My heartfelt condolences goes out to these two persons families and friends.

    • Kim Sands, I am with you on this.But it is unlikely that the family and friends of these two persons will read this.

      So for the sake of, and in appeal to the decency and respect for human made-in-the-image-of-God life not yet completely dead in us natural born too proud Bahamians, I would like to express my sympathy for these two people who lost their lives so tragically.

          • @media…so what i’m supposed to do? sit back and let your people attack me? I mean look at this sad ••• Mary Baptiste…Her name speak for itself and that’s a Haitian acting like she’s one of y’all. Lolz, you have Haitians on this site attacking me too lolz!!!! Just for that, I’m sorry Ms.Baptiste, they need to round y’all asses up and send y’all back! I love to speak my mind but you people really get on my nerves!!!

    • Exactly – and we have YET to see your people place or win any type of award in international beauty competition. Why is that???? Could the answer be that your people are too busy taking “sloop” sailing to another level???? Instead of proving how backwards you are – help your people help themselves – in their country.

  7. so if the number house is* (as in one) picking up the funeral expenses, its your money! you bahamians who buy numbers

  8. You people are just amazing.Here we have an incident where two lives have been lost.And these are the kind of comments being posted.Talk about christian nation.CHRISTIAN MY BUTT.No wonder so many bad things are happening in this country.

    • What do you expect when Ingraham, the man charged with running the nation don’t attend church – not even when invited. What is he afraid of??? Does he even believe in God??? Who is his God??? The answers to these questions may “help” to define why this nation has been in a downward spiral for the last decades – fifteen years under Ingraham and five years under Christie. As the leader goes – so does the nation.
