HAPPY THANKSGIVING

November 26, 2015

nWell its Turkey day in the US, that’s the bird not the country. Did you know Benjamin Franklin wanted to make the Turkey the national bird? He didn’t like the Eagle because it was a scavenger. I wonder what would have happened if they had made the turkey the national bird what would eat on Thanksgiving? I don’t like Duck and Ham is for Easter and I won’t eat a bunny rabbit. Do you think Eagle tastes like chicken? Well that’s some food for thought on this day of Thanksgiving. Please all of you have a wonderful day enjoy the games on the tube be safe and don’t eat too much. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia

SO SORRY

November 23, 2015

1445881261429You have to feel for the American voter this Presidential election. Just look around at the candidates. The republicans lead in the crazy department only because they have more wackos trying for the nomination. I mean take a look they don’t have a clue about anything. On the Democratic side you have Hillary and Bernie. Hillary is old school politician meaning she constantly changes her mind then lies about it. Bernie seems like a good man but he’s only one man and contrary to popular belief the President really can’t do much if the congress and the Senate don’t want him to. And I don’t think all that money is going get on his bandwagon anytime soon. When did this all go to shit? Who started this mess the Republicans or the Democrats? Well my dear friends it was us. We got complacent and trusting and while we did that they sneaked around behind our backs and stuck it up our collective ass’s. There’s still time to set it right but they were smart they brought out the race card and the immigration card and then juts for good measure they threw in the terrorism card. All that will keep us from uniting and actually changing things. The one time we thought we caused change was during the Viet Nam war. We didn’t force the US to end an unpopular war it was time for it to stop anyhow. If we won the country was so destroyed we would have had to spend more on fixing it then we did on destroying it. Not only that look at all those hippies and peace freaks there either living in the hills getting rich on dope or they work for the same people who raped the country in early 2000. So am I surprised that the candidates for President are lying pieces of shit NO. This is Flounder saying CIAO and good luck from Medellin, Colombia.

LEBANON 1974

November 16, 2015

lebanese-war-750x400I’ve seen a lot of stories about what happened in Paris and some people are upset because nothing was said about Lebanon specifically bombing which killed more people than Paris in the capital of Beirut. I agree there’s something wrong with the world’s attitude about this. But I also wonder why people have forgotten this city’s history. At one time prior to 1975 Beirut was referred to as the Paris of the Middle East then a civil war started between Palestine refugees and the Christian government. Syrian and Israeli governments took sides. In 1976 a predominately Syrian peace keeping force was put into place. In 1982 attacks on Israel led to them invading the country. In 1983 a devastating truck bomb attack which killed 229 American and French soldiers resulted in the removal in 1984 of the multination force According to a video released in 2004 by Osama Ben Ladin images of that bombing are what made him conceive the 9/11 attacks. The Sunnis, Shiites as well as others still hate each other. At present there are close to 700,000 Syrian refuges in Lebanon. The Palestine Hezbollah organization has its headquarters in Lebanon. I think with all that goes on in that country on a daily basest a bombing tends to be considered par for the course like the slave trade, blood diamonds and genocide which goes on in Africa. When I search my memory for things that happened there years ago I see the same situation if that country has nothing to give to the rest of the world or is not wealthy it tends to be ignored. War and civil war have destroyed more of that regions history and culture than nature has. And somehow the west gets blamed for it. The Lebanon people deserve just as much sympathy (maybe even more) as France does. They have suffered longer. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

There was a bad terrorist attack in Paris yesterday and Facebook and the net were full of comments and who or what was to blame. An individual I know decided it was President Obama’s fault. Now I don’t care if you criticize the Pres or any politician. Sense if you’ve followed me for awhile you know I think they all lie. What pissed me of was that he had to make it racist. It shows how stupid the person is and why people like Donald Trump get to run for president. Just so you know it was tactics like this that let the Nazis gain power back in the 30’s. If you think the Pres. isn’t doing a good job that’s cool just give legitimate reasons without adding racism. I thought the last Bush to be President was a moron and I sighted things like almost running the Texas Rangers baseball team into bankruptcy and then sending troops to a country that wasn’t involved in 9/11 and not having away to get them out. Even his father who I thought was a good man couldn’t believe that. But I never used slurs to express my point’s only facts. I can’t wait to hear what people will say to criticize Hillary if she’s elected’ Trump will try and make it against the law to criticize him. What happened in France is a tragedy brought about by people who have no respect for others beliefs. Even so I don’t go calling them rag heads or other derogatory names I just wish them to go away. Please pray if you do or take a moment of silence for those who died for no reason. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

STILL UP TO NO GOOD

573144de107a45108dc37e40e393456aMost of you know I live in Medellin, Colombia past home to the infamous Pablo Escobar. At present President Santos is negotiating peace with some 6,000 members of the Farc a Colombian communist rebel group led by a man named Timochenko trained in Russia and Cuba. This group was considered by the US, Most of Europe, and Central America to be a terrorist organization involved in the distribution of Cocaine. Recently because of these peace talks, which have been going on for over three years, this designation was removed by the US and some others. Well yesterday it was revealed that the Sinaloa Cartel led by “El Chapo” Guzman and the Farc have been running a Cocaine operation in Panama. It is said that the Sinaloa Cartel wants to directly run the Colombian Cocaine operations if the Farc is serious about disarming. Now by all accounts these guys are more violent at the moment than the Farc. It would also seem that Farc soldiers not wanting to assume legitimate work will have a job with the cartel. The thing that stands out to me is that the Farc is still a terrorist organization involved heavily in the international distribution of Cocaine. Which means President Santos is about to give the Key to the country to a bunch of thugs and drug dealers not a legitimate revolutionary army. I think it’s time somebody took a close look into his finances. Anyhow I’ll be back this weekend with a American tale. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia. Oh here Fats latest carvings.
