Ineptocracy – “A system of government, historically founded in Barbados and now widely available elsewhere…”

Ineptocracy Barbados


Every once in a while somebody hits it right out of the park…

This is not yet found in the  Oxford  dictionary, but I bet it will be in the next edition, so it was “Googled” and discovered to be a recently “coined” new word found on T-shirts on eBay:

Read what it says slowly, and just absorb the facts that are within the definition!

I love this word and believe that it will become a recognized English word – used frequently in Barbados if not in the rest if of the English speaking world.

Finally, a brand new word to describe our Future… Love it!


A system of government, historically founded in Barbados and now widely available elsewhere, where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

  4. Get some of these T shirts in Barbados !!!!!!!!

  5. Sadly shakes her head!

    Is this a joint DLP/BLP advertisement? (heh heh)

    It’s astonishing that the five people who have commented on this thread failed completely to grasp what this shirt is saying. And it’s beyond astonishing that the BFP person who published this article utterly failed to understand the shirt’s subtext.

    Dear BFP folks: I know you lost a major contributor and thinker in the past few years (I believe I offered my sincere condolences at the time), but it wasn’t until I read this post that I understood what a huge gap that thinker had left. A gap that BFP isn’t even close to closing.

    This shirt is quite obviously racist. A little context might help:

    1. This is not a universal shirt with a universal message. It is very much an American shirt.

    2. The logo on this very-much-American shirt was written during the presidency of the first black US president.

    3. For most of the past decade, the redneck crackers on the US far right have been raving about white “producers” having to redistribute “wealth” to the undeserving poor who don’t produce (apparently, they just breed and live off food stamps and welfare). See, for example, any of the wingnut website commentary about the Baltimore riots.

    4. Remember the undoing of Mitt Romney, when he was vying to be US president a few years ago. Remember his secretly recorded speech in which he said that a large percentage of US voters just want “free stuff” from the producers.

    You getting this yet? If you are black, this shirt is referring to you.

    Still funny?

    Hello Jack,

    We miss Marcus too, but in this case if five other people “don’t get it”, then perhaps your perspective is incorrect?


  8. D Oracle.

    Its racist to state that because a POTUS is black he cannot be criticized. Or assume that every criticism is the result of his being black. Jack, Obama put himself in a position of criticism, its included in the job description whether you are black, white or yellow. Got it?
