Dear Editor, Re: Don’t be easily fooled P.M. says “About claims that customary lands are under threat, Tuilaepa said it was foolish to compare Samoa to New Zealand and Australia.
Dear Editor, The Prime Minister needs to stop his sarcastic and arrogant comments towards people as he is putting the whole country in jeopardy in the eyes of the foreigners and potential investors and donors.
Dear Editor, Re: Chamber behind Govt. on minimum wage What an absolutely stupid approach to moving the economy forward fairly, by asking business if they think the minimum wage should go up.
Dear Editor, Congratulations to Samoa for again showing leadership to the world in protecting our planet! Working and living in Samoa for 3 years, I’ve applauded the Prime Minister’s strength and leadership in making world leaders accountable for taking action for climate change resilience.
Re: S.R.U. doing well Well done, Faleomavaega! I always knew you were the right person to run the day-to-day affairs of the Union. Keep steering the good ship of S.R.U. to sound waters.
Re: P.M. on minimum wage If you increase the wages, doesn’t that give enough money for people to put back to the economy. There will be more money for people to spend on goods, food, fa’alavelave, schooling and church donations.
Dear Editor, Re: Disappointing results The long awaited results for national exams this year have again come with great disappointment. For a few years now our national examinations have been a nightmare.
Re: Gabbard’s strong support in Samoa That’s an interesting conclusion to assume because Gabbard was born in American Samoa that this would be a good thing for Samoa. Obama’s father was born in Kenya, his relatives still lived there, but what did Obama do for Kenya or any country in Africa.
Re: A.D.B. breached own policies The processes need to be followed and if they were, then fine with me. This Dam really is a huge game-changer for Apia’s annual flooding issues.
Dear Editor, Fake news is everywhere every day every so long and one had to stay calm not hysteria as only small fishes jump at every sprinkle in the water.
Dear Editor, Re: Why land concerns are indeed fake news This guy Petelo Suaniu is one of Stui’s biggest supporters. How else should we explain to this donkey what many of our patriots are fighting for?
Re: Small businesses share concerns What if grocery stores hired some of those kids out front to weave those baskets I see that are used in Samoa? If those were available for me when I went to Frankie’s I would buy one and put my groceries in that.
Re: Missing the point It’s a Mickey Mouse operation at best run by unqualified people. But PS Jeffrey is correct , with weather related cancellation the airline is not liable.
Re: P.M. Tuilaepa’s comments irresponsible If this man is so outrageous and condescending to the people of Samoa in what he says to them regarding water and what he is doing to them regarding the land owned by all family members not just one, then why does the Samoa Observer and this writer continue to endorse him by saying there is no opposition to him in the upcoming election?
Dear Editor, I am comparing two different articles. Prime Minister Tuilaepa is saying one thing in the other and making other suggestions in one. There is no knowing where his heart is.
Dear Editor, Unasa Iuni Sapolu should be questioned about what Samoa First’s policy is regarding leasing on customary land. Everything she is saying so far points to her wanting to make it illegal to even lease customary land in Samoa.
Dear Editor, Re: Fiu Elisara decries lack of opportunity The A.D.B. President’s trip to Samoa was to meet the government leadership only. One has to understand that simple fact of life.
Well done to Oriana Netball for stepping up to the plate and taking on the opposition. It’s always hard to see your child’s team come out the other end of a game with such results, but I commend Samoa as a community for embracing Netball more than I have ever seen before recent times.
Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sa’ilele Malielegaoi appears to be a worried man. How else do you explain the way he’s been behaving lately, especially in relation to the opposition his administration is beginning to get? From “small lawyers” to online critics to village chiefs, the Government is definitely feeling the heat so it’s impossible to deny that perhaps we are beginning to see a small shift in the political climate.
The issue of the minimum wage is back on the agenda. While most people agree that $2.30 an hour is not enough, the Government says the decision to increase is totally dependent on the private sector and whether they can afford it. What do you think? And if there were an increase, why? Soli Wilson asked in today’s Street Talk and this is what people said:
Think a minute…One of man’s greatest challenges is to understand women. The problem: “By the time a man can read a woman like a book, he needs eyeglasses.” Or as one husband said, “There are two ways to handle a woman—and nobody knows either of them.” So what do women want?
Talofa Samoa! In the first week of last year, I was looking for one of METI ‘champions’: someone, who had been following the whole foods, plant based (WFPB) diet that METI promotes and who had been successful in reversing his diabetes condition, which had been crippling him for years.
P.M. on Church leaders It seems Prime Minister Tuilaepa can’t leave members of clergy alone. During a radio programme last week, he had plenty to say about Church Ministers. For instance, he reminded them that Church Ministers were only taught on spiritual matters, not on Economics.
The spears flew towards the youth on the hill, whistling as they cut through the air. Grinning, Queen Medb’s general drew his sword, eager to take back to his Queen the head of this warrior whom they called the Hound of Ulster. He had no doubt his spears would find their mark.
