Re: Colonialism attitudes Oh dear, so now we need to cross the t’s and dot the i’s? Which part of “insidious colonialism” needs clarification? Was Christianity part of Samoan culture before colonial powers invaded and settled Samoa?
Dear Editor, Re: The real issue with customary lands I am confident that I have won the legal argument against the H.R.P.P. government involving our customary land because the Law and Fact will be judged by Historians and Lawyers of All Ages hereafter, yet for me the big question is whether our Samoan people will survive this takeover by dishonest corrupt officials and their foreign masters.
Dear Editor, Re: Trump calls for arming of teachers When the oligarchs saw Bernie Sanders ran on the platform as the voice and representative of the masses, they allowed trump to run on the same parallel platform.
Dear Editor, Re: Heartless thieves in times of disaster Really, looting in times of disaster is just a logical extension of the theft and dishonesty practiced by far too many Samoans every day.
Dear Editor, In response to Iona Tusa’s letter about the idle lands published in your paper earlier this week, let me say that the problem you noisy internet activists have is that you assume that leasing is as good as sold.
Dear Editor, Let me lay this out clearly for everyone. I’m writing about PS Jeffrey’s criticisms of the editorial about P.M. Tuilaepa spending too much time on O.L.P.
Dear Editor, Re: Mother desperate for better home I still can’t figure out why they would have to use the bushes when they could always have a pit latrine, or even a peace Corp type of latrine.
Dear Editor, Re: Notorious criminal defies Court Order “Tualima had appeared before the Supreme Court to face charges in relation to his latest escape from jail last December, during which he allegedly attacked a prominent businesswoman and her children at Ululoloa.”
Dear Editor, Re: Trump calls for arming teachers The problem is that American politics is subject to open bribery and the N.R.A. is a major donor during campaigning. Same reason Washington will always support Israel and Saudi regardless how many war crimes they commit.
Re: Silence on P.M’s order The Attorney General has to first find out whether what O.L.P. is writing about is the truth. Then from these truths and evidences provided the Attorney General has to find out whether the P.M. or H.R.P.P. or any government member has broken any of the laws of the land of Samoa.
Re: Granduncle jailed for rape It’s crazy to think of how many more is going on within families in Samoa. It was there when I was young and growing up but people just brush off as it’s the kid’s fault.
Dear Editor, I am writing this letter to publicly seek an explanation from the various agencies/organisations that are supposed to assist in times of disasters such as the D.M.O. and Red Cross. My family was one of those badly affected by Cyclone Gita, our houses were inundated with water and mud and up to now we are still cleaning.
Dear Editor, Re: An act of God or nature? Perhaps this Pastor should be thinking about re-educating himself on matters theologically. I think a proper and meaningful question would be, what are we as stewards of creation doing to creation? Are we upholding our responsibilities in caring and managing our planet?
Re: Security Council and Syria Syrian government forces are fighting to reclaim territory from the rebels/terrorists the U.S. sent in there to destabilize the country with a view to regime change and a leadership more amenable to American geopolitical designs on the region.
Dear Editor Re: In response to P.S. Jeffrey regarding ‘idle lands’ Rather than crucify Jeffrey for his emotive outburst, perhaps we can dissect the issues, which is at the heart of the emotion spillover. If we consider land as an asset (according to my one unit of economics at a local institute), then it is the job of family members under the guidance of the family Sa’o to manage that asset in the best possible way.
Dear Editor, Re: Samoa should have free education Hahahaha se malo! As usual, you deflect from answering the actual question which was where in the 2017-2018 budget does it show the Samoa School Fees Grant Scheme funding?
Dear Editor, Re: Ghostwriters and priorities for government So on the one hand, this editorial hopes the people behind O.L.P are caught. However, on the other hand, this editorial does not believe the government should lift a finger to try and catch them saying it is a waste of time.
Dear Editor Re: Ghostwriters and the priorities for P.M. Tuilaepa’s administration I concur and agree wholeheartedly on this article! Why waste time on a ‘ghost?’ Do your job you have been voted in to do!
Let’s see. Something is terribly amiss in the make up of society when a notorious criminal and someone who has brought unimaginable shame to a country is allowed to openly question the highest authority in as far as the Judiciary is concerned.
In the wake of Cyclone Gita, one Pastor has claimed that the cyclone was a mild warning from God to the government over their decision to tax pastors. What do you think? Samoa Observer reporter, Nefertiti Matatia, asked members of the public in today’s Street Talk: Do you think Tropical Cyclone Gita was a sign from God? This is what they said:
Think a minute…Apple Computer’s Steve Jobs’ death from cancer at the age of 56 touched millions. His impact on the world through the Macintosh computer, iPhone, iPad, iPod, and iTunes will continue for many years.
Talofa Samoa! Someone asked me the other day whether the whole food, plant based (W.F.P.B.) diet that M.E.T.I. is promoting can help reverse heart disease. The answer is a loud YES.
THE BEST A big fa’amalo to the skilled and courageous E.P.C. staff who braved the winds and rain to restore power from broken and dangerous power lines on Cross Island Road on Wednesday night in pitch darkness.
Samoa’s Ava Exports is looking promising, with exports expected to increase in the next couple of years. Ava exports was Samoa’s second largest export commidity from 1998 to 2001 until some European countries led by Germany imposed restrictions on the Pacific Kava Trade. Samoa’s exports of Ava in 1998 was just under $20m.
