Organo Gold Displays Classic Hallmarks of a Pyramid Scheme

By now many Trinbagonians would have been approached by an Organo Gold representative or heard of this coffee distribution programme that offers exorbitant returns with little or no risk to participants.The programme is predicated on participants becoming distributors of Organo Gold Coffee products; but more importantly participation in the programme emphasizes the recruitment of other distributors so as to expand your commission potential.

Sadly the Organo Gold programme being offered in Trinidad & Tobago displays all the classic hallmarks of a pyramid scheme. A pyramid scheme is an unsustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public.

Why Politicians Desperately Chase Degrees and Designations

Politicians in general are perpetually desperate throughout the life of their various careers especially outside of politics. Consequently they aggressively pursue tertiary level degrees and designations at all cost even if it requires falsifying credentials or circumventing course requirements. 

With few exceptions politicians pursue this course of action as they deem it absolutely necessary to scaffold their usual lacklustre professional careers outside of politics which they intuitively assesses to be deficient. These deficiencies are usually the reasons they resorted to politics in the first place as they tend to be unable to thrive in the free market. The degrees are therefore used as a professional crutch to obscure shortcomings.

Tools, Fools, Mules and Pools of Government Bureaucrats

Another snake oil salesman has arrived peddling a quick fix to T&T's crime problem. First of all, it should be noted that among other reasons, the decline in crime rates in US cities during the tenure of the salesman was universal throughout all cities in the US that occurred as a delayed result of the Roe vs Wade decision in 1973 that reaffirmed a woman's right to abortion as a private decision. 

The decision ostensibly reduced the quantum of unwanted children being born who traditionally had a higher propensity to engage criminal activity in their adult years.
