I wonder if it will be up and running in ten years. Regardless, it seems silly when schools do not have books and hospitals are without medicine.Hipocrito Mejia said:I wouldn't put it past the government to do such a thing, but I doubt it. I also doubt that the "metro" will seem like such a ridiculous idea 10 years from now.
And just think where we would be if they would have bought some books for the schools or some friggin' sheets for the beds in the public hospitals.Hipocrito Mejia said:There were similar things being said years ago when the elevados were being built in Santo Domingo, and just think where that city would be without them today.
A lot of us know that that should be priority numbers 1, 2 and 3, but those in government would rather keep the general population from learning too much. A little more knowledge might just help them to figure out how they're being robbed silly by that same government.Scandall said:And just think where we would be if they would have bought some books for the schools
It's funny you mentioned it, but when I read that they scraped the whole thing, I just thought the same thing.Snuffy said:Was the island for real? Or was it a smoke screen used to muster acceptance of the metro project. Create two ridiculous ideas...one more than the other. After debate heats us...agree to drop the more crazy one. Makes the metro appear a lot more acceptable.
Evidently, Scandall, Joshua R. isn't the least bit interested in 'cleaning up" his act.Scandall said:Petty.

Sad thing is, we think we are so good at it. Our tourism service is bad. Dont be fooled by what local experts babble about on TV. Our service is bad 80% of the time and mediocre at best on rare ocassions. Why, Because Dominicans in general have a very poor education, not to mention civility and morality.Jose A. Grullon Suro said:Help.
Even tourism (the so called "Industry without chimneys") could -to paraphrase Schumacher- end up by creating a country of taxi drivers and baggage handlers. And worse still... And do not fall into the trap of believing in what they call "Ecological Theme Parks". That's just a trick to to be allowed into our National Parks and Preserves.
