    Opening doors. Nothing bad about that. Well done.

    Maybe next time we can impress them with a new airport and hotel development.

    I hear the (head in the sand crew) were back up on the hill today. With all the good things that are happening, not to mention steady growth of the economy. (Your only fooling yourself!!)

    If I’m not mistaken this is something
    That dr brown started years ago
    It was all tied in around the wigurs
    Acceptance and so on
    At least the ties are continuing
    Not like our across the pond neighbors
    With the administration that’s about to take
    May god bless America !!

    • wahoo says:

      I think that the Chinese actually wanted the wigurs back so they could put some cracks on them. Whatever, the Chinese have a reputation for building hotels and airports throughout the world now so perhaps we can get their help.

    Bahamas just rejected China’s request to fish in their EEZ – hope that idea isn’t being brought to the table here!

    China has been building airports and roads all over the Caribbean. #justsayin
