    Legalize Medina Run for President!!! NOT.

    Will the DR Legislators change the constitution to allow Medina to make another Presidential run? I certainly hope not. He has had mixed results in his term. The biggest mark against him is the Odebretch scandal. This happened on his watch and it can't be disputed. That alone should give you...

    Gov official says too much drinking in the DR!?!?!?

    Please, tell me something that I don't know? The availability and ease in which to purchase alcohol is part of the problem. It seems just about every shop in the DR can sell the stuff. Drinking and driving laws are only now being taken with any seriousness and every holiday revolves around...

    DR Gov Paying For Samana Highway

    I noticed in the news headlines that the DR trying to re-negotiate the deal they made with a Colombian construction company, who built the SD-Samana Highway. Evidently not enough people are using the highway and paying tolls throughout the year and so the DR Gov is responsible for making...

    Businesses Not Paying Taxes

    Read this morning that many businesses, the majority, in Samana are paying no taxes to the Gov. In 2017 how is this possible. This says to me that the DR Gov. is so far from buttoned up that it is laughable. They spend the public's money, they steal the public's money and they don't enforce...

    Medina Considering Another Run

    This is starting to sound like a broken record and a dictatorship not a Democracy. Why do politicians think it is their right to alter the constitution and change the rules to suit themselves? I guess because they can. After the Odebrect scandle, under his watch, I would think he would not...

    Another DR Gov Agency not doing their Job

    Surprise, surprise. Your Cafe Santo Domingo is made from imported beans. The Agricultural agency in charge of trying to assit the coffee growers failed miserably to aid them in fighting a blight and now there is virtually no industry left. There has been no assistance and no action in trying...

    New Crackdown Has Kept Police and Military Very Busy

    I read this morning that that the new directive to try to be pro-active in cutting down on crime has yielded over 1500 arrests. WOW! Very impressive. What made me chuckle was the number of vehicles, especially motos that were confiscated because of the lack of registration. The other thing...

    Wham, Bam, thankyou mam!!!!

    In the words of David Bowie, wham, bam, thankyou mam! That sums up what sex, for most gringos visting in the DR is all about. It's certainly not about love, relationships or passion. It's all about "fast food". Get it quickly, consume it and move on. For the most part it is not your looks...

    Closing a thread instead of answering the question????????????

    Robert: I agree with Meemselle, 50% or more of the people who appear on this thread do not introduce themselves propertly and most do not have any connection with the DR. Instead of closing the thread why not consider doing your job and asking these people for some details as to who, what and...
