Hello 2019 PANAMA!!!

"JB"

by James “JB” Bryson

So in the spirit of giving, my visiting family did a bang up job of giving me the flu. So apologies for the stagnancy on the site over the past few days. I do however, love the fact that I can get everything I need with one visit to a Super 99 and avoid all of the red tape it takes to get healthy back in the states. At my age I know exactly what I need. I know the exact prescription. So YES, Panama is the best in that regard.

2019 is poised to be a huge year in PANAMA. And here at PNO.com we intend to learn from what we started in 2018 and build on it for 2019. All of the topics we covered will be followed up on, with some very big events for us to monitor.

THE ELECTIONS

ODEBRECHT

WORLD YOUTH DAY and THE POPE

MARTINELLI SAGA

GOVERNMENT BRIBES AND SCANDALS

ENVIRONMENTAL ABUSES

POLITICAL BEDFELLOWS

CANAL EXPANSION

INFRASTRUCTURE

EX-PAT SCAMS AND TRAPS TO AVOID

As we go into 2019, let me again thank the few ( but growing ) and frequent visitors and contributors to the site. In truth, there are times when we are operating the site when we see that something is contributed and maybe 45-50 people viewed it that day, and we feel it should have been more. But then there were times we posted something that tens of THOUSANDS viewed. It is apparent that Panamanians and Ex-Pats alike are indeed engaged and involved in the happenings that occur around them, and at PNO.com we intend to provide a platform for those views to be disseminated.

Saludos

Kansas City Chiefs make it 3 out of 4 in winning SUPER BOWL. Just ask Taylor.

I am well aware of the difference between what LATAM refer to as “FOOTBALL” and us GRINGOES, but the biggest sporting event in the US passed last SUNDAY, with KANSAS CITY taking home the crown. With Pop Icon TAYLOR SWIFT cheering on her boyfriend of the moment, the CHIEFS needed …

Newbies…….,was I lying? Nothing more entertaining than PANAMA politics.

A incredibly popular ex-President, who has done prison time in the US, been sent back to Panama, done prison time here. Won Mayoral race while incarcerated. Has had two sons do prision time in Guatemala and US. Family owns the equivalent of the nation’s WAL MART, is exonerated on charges. …

Get ready for a bloodbath election year. Gloves are off with these people.

This was covered in great detail for both of our Spanish and English readers, but as I welcomed the “NEW” readers and contributors to life here in PANAMA, people considering retirement, and Ex-Pat status. I like to cover just how “cannibalisitic” the political scene is down here. I have to …
