    When the hell will these people learn not to give money to this corrupt gov. Are they idiots or what whenever any one gives money to this gov. Three quarter of the money goes into their pockets and the rest goes to the project anyone deciding to help this country fu gods sake do not give the money to this corrupt gov. Do the project yourself but don’t give them the money.

    It’s money time! Ca-ching Ca-ching. On a warm summer’s eve, Ali BaBa-rrow met up the IDB and conned them. How could he do this?

    Ali BaBa-rrow is a gambler, and he knows how to conned them. He knows when to be a victim. He is getting monies to repair the George Price road.

    Today is 22nd of July, 2014. Let’s revisit five years from now. The monies will be gone, and the George Price road will still be in dire need of those repairs.

    By the way, can someone tell us, how many homes Barrow owns in Florida and California?
