Seems like you never realize that you are swimming on dry land??? Huh!!! FYI i do not judge anyone, especially you. It is not called judging, but a simple statement of opinion. Go back and look at your comments over other people's opinions and from your own words you will call that judging??? PNC had their time in office and what Burnham did made a lot of Indians rich. Do some research on this....I did not say that the PPP has not improved the country, but one can observe the ignorance. In fact I have visited Guyana several times and will not deny their progress in Guyana; however, the PPP has become corrupted in comparison to Burnham or PNC.
Yeah man, I sell drugs, fast money, but for you it's free becuz of your dependency.
Look bhai, you seem to have a lot of ideas, but must spell check some words you use, for example, repetition-means repeating one thing too many times, I think in that sentence you mean "reputation', and there are many more........Take care.

Yo, Mike I really do not want to go in details, but your statistics may be right; however, I am referring to the infrastructure that has improved in medical facility, education, housing ,etc. Otherwise than that there are corruption and criminal activities surrounding this administration.

The New Amsterdam hospital building has historical value, something the white race understands. Very sad.
only bad, crude,rude and nasty behavior has no colour.

I, Christopher Ram have three antimen sons named Christoff, Ravendra and Rajendra Ram. I sold Hotel Tower to local drug lord Salim Juman Azeez. Salim Juman Azeez was mentioned in a Wikileaks cable about being a money launderer.

I Christopher Ram sodomized Asmita Chand and force sex upon some of my female employees at Ram&McRae Chartered Accountants.

Guyanese people should vote for me and make Guyana into a Communist state.

I Christopher Ram, ACCA Member and Lawyer, would lower the age of consent to 3 years old and give the ministries of health and agriculture allowance to put growth hormones in milk so that I could be like Glenn Lall brother Reeaz Khan and have sex with young girls.

Hola,desde CHILE,fui medico anestesiologo y Director de esta reliquia arquitectonica,creo como muchos de uds. que debe ser preservada,no solo por su valor artistico,sino tambien como centro formador de excelentes profesionales de salud y como centro de atencion medica y de trabajo mancomunado de tantos medicos de tantos paises que colaboraron y que siguen colaborando con el pueblo generoso de Guyana.Saludos.

For generations, it has been the only hospital for West and East Berbicians. It is important to preserve the history of the country, and preserving historical buildings is one of the best ways to do this

For the years that I lived in Guyana I found the quality of the doctors and staff at the New Amsterdam Hospital to be very good.
This hospital surely is one of the building that gave New Amsterdam it's caracter and should be maintained to standard...
