Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

General Custer was killed at Little Big Horn, Montana around 1876. The massacre at Wounded Knee, South Dakota occurred in 1890. I cannot speak to the reasons every person comes to Chile but it appears that they see opportunities others have missed. I doubt they’re all right wingers, too. I don’t un...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

A few comments here seem to be trying to justify what Corbin has done, particularly ExpatBob. Nowhere in anything I typed was an attempt to justify what he did. I actually went and looked at your posts and could not find where you tried to justify what Corbin did. He used a red herring to deliberat...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

The problem is, when the student protests happened in 2011. Most parents wanted their children not to lose the opportunity of one year's education by protesting, so actively intervened. Parents got very involved in trying to ensure the schools stayed open where possible. University was tougher due ...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

In Serena, an attack on the Primera Comisaría de Carabineros in the town centre. Spray paint, tear gas, barricades etc etc. First time it has been targeted. These protests are not going to stop anytime soon. I'm wondering if they'll get worse around here, if/when everyone starts visiting during the...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

In the summers, even the thieves and drug dealers go on vacation from the central region. same with protests. back durring the edu...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Yes, money management is an issue in Chile (and also in the US). The consumerist model depends on people buying shit they don't really need and a strong "keep up with the Jones'" attitude. Lots of Chileans don't understand why I won't get a newer car....it's simple...I don't want to pay a bunch of ...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Seeing this rioting has made me glad I chose an alternate path, rather than moving to Chile. When I finally had the chance, about 2 years back, I had a bad feeling and went to a greener, less presently charred, pasture.

Re: Halloween this year?

Well, I tried. All the local almacens were out of Halloween candy. I even walked down to the Lider Express, thinking walmart would never run out. But none there either. And their other shelves were also looking a little bare, which was kinda spooky. It makes you wonder if the hoodlums bought it up ...

Re: The Obama Administration

Wow John that sounds like what you and I talked about over a year go. At least Reich finally caught up with the amateurs..
