Dear Editor, Re: Why we should all pay for foreign debt P.S. Jeffrey, your letter is predicated on two misguided assumptions; one is that the current generation of Samoans like the aid projects funded by Chinese moneys, and, two, future generations of Samoans have given their agreement for the government to make decisions on their behalf.
Re: Samoa ‘Founded on God’ and Samoa ‘Founded on the Trinity’: Are they One and the Same Thing? Personally, I’m conflicted on this amendment, the original Constitution was sufficient enough, no need to amend the Constitution.
Dear Tai Peta, Thank you for enlightening me about Samoa’s repayment of its debts. I now know. My bad. I took a term of economics at a local institution which shall remain nameless and this is what I learnt - there is no such thing as free lunch in this world.
Dear Editor, I write with regards to the Stigmata girl. We waited eagerly for the ‘message’ on the 18th December 2016 but it never eventuated and I was deeply disappointed and very depressed. My Christmas was basically ruined because someone forgot to tell the world about the message.
Dear Editor, Thank you Vitolia Mo’a for your piece “Samoa ‘Founded on God’ and Samoa ‘Founded on the Trinity’: Are they One and the Same Thing?” in the Sunday Samoan. My question is; what is the purpose of a Constitution?
Re: Letter from a friend Fa’afetai Mata’afa for sharing this. I agree with a lot of the points raised, and especially with the reference to the Airline industry.
Dear Editor, The readers views expressed on the constitutional change with regards to Samoa being formally recognised as ‘ founded on’ the trinitarian biblical God are really challenging.
Dear Editor, As a regular visitor to Samoa from Australia I am intrigued at the adoption of daylight saving. Whilst there are benefits in terms of longer evenings, I believe the economics of the practice require reassessment. Samoa is not a wealthy country.
Dear Editor, Over the past years, I have read Orlando Huaman’s many attacks on our Christian faith including his latest in the last week regarding the alleged contradictions in the Bible.
Re: Hunt for international fugitive hits snag My advise to the police and the government of Samoa is don’t waste time, money and resources to extradite this guy - it will not happen as he’s a citizen of Australia.
Re: Letter from a friend: ‘Everyone is hurting and they have a story to tell’ I was a recent tourist in Samoa during the Christmas season, there was very few of us on the plane that were not of Samoan decent.
Dear Editor, Thank you for printing ‘Stupid (taxpaying) Palagis’ well researched letter regarding the government debt. So what happens if a country defaults on its loan obligations?
Dear Editor, Re: The real issue with foreign debt. I write in response to Vai Autu’s letter about the foreign debt. Vai, if the loans mean that the next generation pays for it, then so be it. The next generation should pay for it.
Dear Editor, Congratulations to PC Fuiavailili Egon Keil, his lawyer Leiataua Komisi Koria and his team. Malo le onosai - the Truth has prevailed as it always does.
While brainstorming sessions are no doubt a more focused and recognised way of coming up with ideas, there’s a lot to be said for casual, meandering conversations over coffee as well.
Samoa’s Olympic medalist, Ele Opeloge, is unlikely to earn a lot of money – if any – from the government for her efforts. Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi’s insists the government only awards monetary gifts to Olympic gold medal winners.
Think a minute…On this journey called life, do you sometimes feel like just pulling over and parking? You feel like you’ve done enough, worked enough, and learned enough.
WHAT A TEASER! If the Samoa Rugby Union needed some publicity for the upcoming game to be held at Apia Park later in the year, the Auckland Blues rugby side gave it to them by defeating the Melbourne Rebels 56-18 on Thursday night.
The mead hall of King Giuki was filled with the sounds of music and laughter. At his table, the king sat smiling, his horn in his hand and his eyes fixing themselves upon each of his sons in turn.
