It is a sad story no matter how many fiafia events there may be. One of the last remaining island habitats existing for thousands of years in conformity with mother earth, is losing its balance within 200 years of European arrival.
Re: Minister slams door on sex education call I am sick to death of these over educated people who either, did not know the warning pen by the late, or, had known and completely went against Lemalu Tate Simi encomiums:
Re: Chinese influence in Samoa We as an ethnic group carry a stigma with the outside world from NZ, Australia and in the US. To them, we ethic Samoans, are dumb people. The prime minister and PS Jeffrey here are prime examples.
Re: New colonialism that feeds on greed “The colonialists came with guns and weapons. That’s not happening anymore. Today, they are offering finances, funding and lots of loans that we will not be able to pay. They are shooting us down with their ideals, values and rules.”
Re: P.M. Tuilaepa should tell us these lawyers Of course it’s a widely held knowledge who the lawyers are. You know them Mr. Editor; the very same information I sent to the Honourable Prime Minister of Samoa I sent you also.
Re: Chinese influence in Samoa Another racist letter to the Samoa Observer about the Chinese. This Asipau writer straining with every scrape of the empty barrel to try and differentiate and isolate the newer Chinese migrants as some “other” to be feared; to be despised; to be suspicious of, and ultimately to be de-humanised.
Dear Editor, Re: Govt. charges pastors The EFKS, through her Fono Tele, represents the Cultural- Spiritual Twin Foundations of the Modern Samoa which gave Modern Samoa it’s Constitution and the Founding Vision for the Independent State of Samoa- Samoa shall always be Founded in God, the God of the Christian Faith.
Dear Editor, Re: Aid expert downplays debt trap This so-called Aid expert won’t be around to help when Samoa is absolutely broke and have no ways of raising money to pay the “interest” of the 1$billion loan.
Dear Editor Re: Govt. in control of airline finances As is the case the world over, airlines are generally the domain of private enterprise. The same should apply in Samoa.
Dear Editor, Re: $1.1 billion debt, charges against Church Ministers and corruption A moving forward world is a progressive life for the right of this the right of that and of course the right to develop one’s country. The past is history.
Re: Samoa’s debt and corruption The debt to equity ratio in Samoa is an inverted fraction already, it needs to counter balance by finding some lucrative resources to make up the difference. And guess who’s the one that’s going to pay the Piper to make up the difference?
Re: Report shocks diplomat The journalist is acting on advise from Australian government which was announced in the parliament last week comparing security risks involved in regard of close proximity to Australia.
Dear Editor Re: We’ve never left, U.S. assures Pacific I think that had it not been for China’s interest in the Pacific, perhaps the U.S. official take would have been one to leave the Pacific alone as it has done for the past three decades.
Dear Editor, Re: Solution to violence within families The P.M. is right, the solution to domestic violence lies with all of us. We, particularly the men, need to be able to communicate better and more effectively with our wives and children.
Re: Climate change Yes it is and to all those stupid Samoan Trump supporters who say climate change is a hoax, then they should be forced to go and live out by the coasts of Kiribati and then they can start wailing about hoaxes as they start drowning in the sea.
Dear Sir, The information in the article written by Sapeer Mayron, “Bank in NZ money laundering scandal” once again remind us the people of Samoa of the sufferings we have from NZ. The Central Bank of New Zealand is run by a bunch of prejudicial and racist people.
Forget what the climate change skeptics are saying—it is real and already affecting millions of lives on the planet—including the Pacific Islands. In America authorities put the death toll from the devastating fires in California last month at 85.
Samoa joined the international community last Saturday December 1 to mark the 2018 World AIDS Day with a parade, a float and speeches by dignitaries including Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sailele Malielegaoi. Our reporter Yolanda Lavata’i met members of the public to get their views on the deadly disease and what should be done.
Think a minute…A father was trying to get his little boy to drink a glass of milk, but the son kept refusing, so the battle of wills was on. The father then poured himself a glass of milk and challenged his son to a race to see who could drink their milk the fastest. When the son had finished drinking his entire glass of milk, he said: “Let’s race again!”
As we fast approach the end of 2018 and envelop ourselves in the spirit of the festive season on Christmas and New Year celebrations, we need to spare a thought or two for the Samoa delegation these two weeks in Katowice Poland in the collective pursuit by developing countries for a climate package of decisions that ‘leaves no climate related issues behind’.
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.
