    Smart guns and cashless society, laptops and rainbows, sugar and (lack of) spice. Manana. I live on the north coast, I don't expect much and I have yet to be disappointed.

    Smart guns:

    The DR gov has already signed a deal with a smart gun maker to produce a DR exclusive model. The gun will be in two calibers only. The price will be around US$3,500 per gun issued. The buyers will not own the gun outright, but a renewable contract. Which will be on a year to year renewal only term. Also which will require a gun holder/carrier insurance. Just having the gun itself won't be enough, as having a policy that will cover any claims for loses or damage cause for its improper or criminal use will be mandatory. The guns will incorporate a growing tracking device which activates once the gun is fired and will keep going with a heart beat signal until its next inspection by the Police. This will enable instant live reporting of a discharged firearm and its location as well.

    We are in the process of reducing the number of regular firearms in the country, prior to the new gun Laws taking effect as well the replacement of all guns with the smart guns under licenses today. The old forearms will be auctioned and the balances applied to the new smart guns of their owners(licensed operators).

    Cashless society: 

    Just the CB of the DR reports over RD$70 billion in daily transactions via electronic means. The rest of the banks are now at over 60% on these. The trend is increasing each quarter compared to the last.
    As the entire gov payment system moves online and via electronic means alone, this trend will continue to increase. The next phase will require all employers to move to the electronic payroll system.

    It takes time but we are getting there faster than we planned.

    Laptops:

    I know you don't follow jack s$it of anything of this, but to date, thousands of laptops have been distributed to students at the national level. You can find and count them yourself via the portal of the presidency.


    Rainbows:

    All around you'


    Sugar and spices:

    Hmmm... 

    Going sour on us??


    You can't see what you don't want to see...
    For the rest it's self evident!

    You should be an Ambassador for the Dominican Republic. If the Dominican Republic didn't have nice beaches and rain for commercial agriculture it would be like the Democratic Republic of Congo..."high end medical instruments" thats a hoot.

    You guys love the echo of your own hollow words!

    And no, not a hoot! But a fact!
