The Integrity Commission Part 2 – Manning vs Rowley Again?


With the new Pro Max Integrity Commission about to be installed, the bets are on as to who the Commission will be instructed to target first. The public might be in for a surprise as the tangled web of corruption gets tangled even more. Maybe the people handpicked by Pro Max and his consultants will be people who will not be easily hounded out of office like the last set.  I am sure once the media smell another Pro Max rat, it will be hound dog country again. With Pro Max being a man who talks strong but acts like a weakling, the public is very skeptical about anything Pro Max touches. We can only pray in Guanapo that the new commissioners have the necessary balls of integrity to resist the temptations of flavorous granted by the Master.

We ain’t nothing but hound dogs and we like it so


Hounding – to pursue with or as if with hounds ~ Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

Trinidad and Tobago is a democratic country where the Government is voted into office and voted out of office by a population who believes manna will fall from Heaven via the Government. In extreme circumstances, when a Government behaves in a hostile and arrogant manner towards the public for a number of years , a Government can be hounded into shame and out of office.  Sometimes Government appointed public officials who enjoy the protection and praise of the Government even after strong evidence points to them doing wrong with the public’s purse, are hounded out of office and into high-priced condos in Miami. In recent times, Government Ministers who are fond of behaving arrogantly and using bullying tactics against the population have spoken out against the principle of hounding because these Ministers are shaking in their boots and high-heels. These Ministers are now widely viewed as being corruption supporters and idiots whereas previously they were simply know as idiots.

The principle of hounding is as old as the hound dog itself and was developed in democratic countries as a tool to prevent democratic leaders from pulling wool over people’s eyes for an extended period of time. Hounding is a form of empowerment and sometimes the only tool the public can use to get redress from oppressive democratically elected leaders who think during their elected period they could mash up the place and build in Guanapo as they see fit. Without the ability to hound, a democratic society might as well become a dictatorship and subject itself to the rule of an Attorney General whose brain and eyebrows are clearly on the dotish side.  Hounding is an essential tool used in democratic countries to keep a country free from oppressive, insane and sometimes, stupid people. Taking  away people’s ability to hound public officials out of office is like taking away people’s ability to wine on Carnival days.

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog
Cryin’ all the time
You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog
Cryin’ all the time
Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit
And you ain’t no friend of mine

From the song Hound Dog, written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller
