rewards1-680x400I was just going over the news and thought I’d get rid of some frustrations by writing a post. I know people in America get tired of me writing posts about Colombia but you have to understand what happens in politics down here has a greater effect on me than politics up there does on you. But today’s rant sort of covers both countries. First Colombia is going to release a paramilitary warlord early from prison because he’s old and claims to have memory problems. Which keep him from giving information that was part of a plea deal with the government, which we all know is bull shit. This sets a bad precedent for the peace talks. I want you to know I am not saying a negotiated peace is a bad thing. But I don’t think it should be done at the expense of justice for the victims. Now up there I was reading a story about bonuses for senior executives of major corporations and banks and I was wondering why they get them even when the companies are claiming to be near bankruptcy and begging the government for help. This is just telling the people tuffs shit keep working and say goodbye to your retirement. I don’t understand what it is about Americans that lets take this without huge protests or maybe even a small revolution. I’ve heard that it’s because things are still better in America. Not necessarily true America rates last in Healthcare its people are not happy that number one slot goes to Finland. I think Americans should start looking around and maybe start demanding some changes before they all become second calls citizens. I mean if I was still living in the US I could get a lot of rewards for bad behavior, kind of sounds stupid don’t you think. Well I got that off my chest so it’s time for a nap this is Flounder saying CAIO from Medellin Colombia.

Vietnam_American_war_1974What exactly if war good for? I mean look at Hitler he goes and starts World War 2 because he didn’t like the way World War 1 ended didn’t work out to well for him did it? Then we have the North and South Korea a lot got accomplished with that one didn’t it. Next we have a little something called Viet Nam first the French get there ass kicked pretty good then America comes along and when all is said and done 50 something thousand American men and women are dead. Things stay pretty quiet for awhile the Sadam decides he want to own some strip of sand called Kuwait that didn’t go as planned then another guy blows up the world trade center in New York city and America is back in Iraq spends a few years there tries to leave and nothing’s really changed At the same time we’re in Afghanistan looking for the guy who blew up the trade center 10 years later he’s dead but the country is still nothing but a pile of rocks. Let’s go further back to the American civil war which wasn’t about slavery but was about states right to govern themselves. Now that little disagreement cost 625,000 dead and 452,200 wounded and they were all Americans and the states are still pissed at each other. I could go on and on but most people will say like fro WW 2 that we won but that’s not the point somebody has to start this shit before anybody can win and for somebody nothing changes or in some cases it gets worse. So the answer to the question WAR WHATS IT REALLY GOOD FOR is ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia

hestartedit_1Let’s talk about taking responsibility something it appears no one like to do. Governments don’t want to take and individuals don’t either. Look at Venezuela’s president blaming everything that’s wrong in his country on America and its allies. What he should be doing is looking for ways to fix the problems and if still doesn’t want to talk to America that’s fine I don’t think they want to talk to him either. Now here’s an example of an individual; in New Jersey an 18 year old girl is suing her parents for living and educational expenses. You have to know that when she turned 18(which make you an adult in the US) she left home because she didn’t like the rules of the house. Now if you stay at a hotel there are rules you must follow but apparently she felt she since she was 18 she didn’t have to listen anymore and left and now she wants her parents to support her. In both these cases it seems people think it’s easier to pass the buck that to try and resolve the problem. In the case of a country when people get frustrated they just start protest and you know when you put thousands of people together your just asking for trouble. Like in the Ukraine where they ended up having Russian military move in, now some of this can be blamed on unresponsive governments who don’t like to be disagreed with. In the New Jersey case if they were to side with the young lady I’m not sure people would want to have kids. Hey what happened to I Fucked up sorry it was my fault let’s talk this out. Well this is Flounder and I’m taking the rest of today and the weekend off talk to you Monday and this post was all Jeff’s idea CIAO for Medellin. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
