Should we applaud the transparency of disseminating this information or simply roll our eyes and suck our teeth as we make notes for November? How very nice that senators not from St Thomas can pop on over on an all expenses paid jaunt to enjoy Carnival ...

Disgusting and the Senators that flaunt their taking advantage of the working people of the Virgin Islands. When will the people of the Virgin Islands that vote for these people realize how much of a FREE life their giving our Senators every day!


Yes and every single one that takes the FREE non taxed goods should feel ashamed taking during a time when people are being laid off, on unemployment, and attempting to just live a basic life.

I know one Senator that will definitely take advantage of this so he can come to STT and shag his Mistress(td)

This is Totally B.S. when there is a financial crisis going on. These "kings" are apparently above everyone else. Privilege and perks are all they care about. And to add insult onto injury, their staffs get off on "administrative time" .... more tax dollars with NOTHING to show for it. When I want to attend Carnival during the week, I need to take a vacation day. How many more will get laid off to compensate for this?

The article says that the Senate will have a booth in the village. Everyone attending should stop by and give them a "ration of shit".

PS, here is a link to the Senate / Staff listings (email and phone numbers). In the event you contact a Senator, please make sure you address them correctly as, "The Honorable ..... ".

I think that the Senators need to pay their own way- TOTALLY. Pay their own Travel, Lodging, Meals- these are not official visits- they are politicized visits.

I ABHOR seeing any Senate Staffer a driving a senate vehicle. The Senate Staffers SHOULD NEVER be afforded free travel, lodging or meals on the taxpayers back.

On the other hand, at least if we all give them a free trip and Carnival, they're out of the Senate for a day or two. That might be an improvement over having them do their "work", which is even worse for us.

This makes me even more bitter about not having received my tax refund yet.

I've started calling the STT IRB [715.1040] every single day to check on my 2010 refund. I implore everyone to start doing the same. Tempted to start researching all IRB employees' cell phone numbers, home numbers, [other jobs] and calling there too.

If you owe your CC or mortgage company a few thousand, be sure they'll have a bill collector calling you at 8pm at home!
