Ongle ting, yu never born wid no baton. Sake a dat, yu can form like seh yu a commissioner. Yu can act good-good. But dem nah gi yu di real-real commissioner work.
Ongl ting, yu neva baahn wid no batan. Siek a dat, yu kyahn faam laik se yu a komishana. Yu kyahn ak gud-gud. Bot dem naa gi yu di riil-riil komishana wok.

Mi no understand wa mek it so hard fi Christian see seh man an woman supposen fi have di said same rights. / Mi no andastan wa mek it so aad fi Krischan si se man an uman supuozn fi av di sed siem raits.
I don't understand why it's so hard for Christians to accept that men and woman are supposed to have equal rights.
weak dollar will attract foreign investors who will make a killing. We'll be so grateful for the jobs they bring, we'll work for next to nothing. Been there and done that! So we're not going back there if we can help it.
