Re: New $100 bill revealed

The conversion exercise has certainly opened up a whole new pandora's box for citizens who keep money at home. What was meant to help law enforce authorities to target criminality may yield sadly new dangers for citizens who may be faced with home invasions by those who took note of their bank visit...

Re: The 2019 Murder Toll Ched

Our society is at risk of willingly giving up some of our civil liberties in the hope of breaking the prevailing cycle, a situation which in its self is very dangerous.

Re: New $100 bill revealed

The determination of money being dirty has to be as a consequence of proof or evidence.

Still I don't know what are the things which have to be executed for this transaction to result in the refinery being revived.
The way things are can only be described as 'hoping for the best but harbor real concerns'.
I wonder how many former petrotrin employees have expectations of re-employment?
