Response to State attorney investigates if police chief ordered to kill squatters

stop complaining?

Sunday, December 16, 2012 at 10:03
  • Stop complaining? Gee, that's what men use to say to a woman who was raped, or a kid bullied. I thought the days of Archie Bunker were over. Its the victims fault, if you don't like it, don't visit or move here? Stay at home? That is your answer? ...

Response to State attorney investigates if police chief ordered to kill squatters

very bad news

Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 20:02
  • Bad news that this is a problem for expats. This is NOT something I want to worry about in a strange country, where its easy for the system to gang up on you because you are a 'rich gringo'. I know that in the States or in Canada, you are pretty ...

Response to US Embassy Alert! Nov 27, 2012

Interesting law

Friday, December 07, 2012 at 10:37
  • I can see the point of the government, 'we have enough trouble makers of our own'. But all and all, if I was a local, and went to a demonstration, and found it mixed with a bunch of foreigners, I might be thinking 'maybe I'm in the wrong place'. To ...

Response to Presidency is preparing money to defend itself in social networks

This is very sad

Wednesday, December 05, 2012 at 13:12
  • This little cournty could better use this money for infrastructure and (sometimes) better police. Cleaning up some of the corruption and pot holes in the roads. To put money in 'virtual' infrastructural is only making Facebook shareholder richer. ...

  • For a time, I had an expat friend in Panama who planned to set up a coconut business. I was thinking of marketing the oil on line. I did some research and found its very good, and I suspect demand will grow. Anyone producing this kind of oil? ...

Response to Bull fighting

Not all Americans are Ugly

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 14:00
  • Two points to offer the Old Grump 1) its my right, as a person, to say I feel, that an activity in one country is not appropriate, just as they can do it or not. Not enough people said it was wrong for Germany's actions toward J ews, but perhaps ...

Post rated 3.75
  • Someone explained this to me very quickly once, but I did not get it, 1) does a wife take her husbands name after marriage? 2) the child, does the child take only the father's name or how does that work? 3) the 'de' - that was mentioned to, but I ...
