Government In Inaction

Much can be said about representative government and how it is adapted in different countries. In the US, the constitution was created by a congress of men who supposedly represented the will of their individual states, or colonies at that time. One must ask if they truly represented the wishes of t...

Re: Internet Connection

I am in the 5th region and no hardwiring is available for home use. I use a 4G pen drive from Movistar which works great. Initially had it on computer but bought a TP-Link router which accepts the pen drive, as opposed to a cable. I stream Netflix movies and do USA work from home here with no proble...

Re: Moving to Chile from the UK

You had better have at least $1,500 month to start with considering lodging, food, transportation. Santiago is not cheap unless you buy all your groceries from the feria. For more info visit https://extranijeros.blogspot.cl/

Re: Venezuela Wake, countdown to implosion

This is what happens when people slavishly adopt a socialist government. #8 of Saul Alinsky's road map of 8 steps from a democracy to a socialist society: Class Warfare: Divide the People into the Wealthy against the Poor. Racially divide. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to Tax...

Food Trucks

I am glad to see that Chileans have gotten on the bandwagon regarding food trucks. There are more and more popping up, some mobile others pull-behind trailers. Last summer the had a one month festival in Maitencillo that had 12 food trucks, each with a different flavor of food. Last weekend we went ...

Re: American accused of beating a 16 year old in Reñaca

I wouldn't believe a word the Chilean said. Sounds like the typical Chilean class warfare vomit.

Re: So long, Chile.

Whether it's my personal experience, what others have told me, or what's written on the internet, everything points to consistently appalling service from Movistar. While you may not have another cabled/wired option, can you try non cable options from another company. If I am sitting in the middle ...

Re: "Chilean customer service"; an oxymoron

An oxymoron indeed. I could relate stories that would curl your hair after only 3 years here. Dealing with dishonest "maestros", contractors, etc etc. Very little moral values or respect for quality work exists. The only possible exception is going to a upscale restaurant, which I conclude is a resu...

Re: British food and beer!!!

What you still can´t seem to get are baked beans. A couple of years ago, Jumbo brought some in and I bought every can on the shelf. Since then I´ve put in a request to them a couple of times but they haven´t responded. They´ve called me to ask what they are, the make etc ,and I explained that they´...

Re: Passenger Vehicle Sirens

Well of course seawolf, in this liberal culture you want to give the bad guys as much of a chance as possible.
