Re: The Trump Administration

Not the sentiments of someone who believes in First Amendment rights. :wink: Oh, but I do believe in First Amendment rights. However, the First Amendment guarantees a right to express an opinion, NOT to trespass, riot, prevent other people from expressing their opinion, beat up those who don't agre...

Re: The Trump Administration

There really is a general feeling that this circus is not going to end well. Of course there is. That feeling has been created and is being fed and fueled by the liberals (funded and back by George Soros) who just can't accept that Hillary "What difference, at this point, does it make?" Clinton was...

Re: The Trump Administration

Who was it who trashed the UC Berkeley campus the other evening, forcing the cancellation of a talk by Milo Yiannopoulos? Hint -- it wasn't Trump supporters who set the campus on fire. How about this gem? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vHUNoxywvg You only need to watch the first two minutes. The s...

Re: The Trump Administration

OK thats funny regardless of which side you are on ..... Actually, it's not. Obama flouted and disregarded the Constitution far more than Trump has, but the media never reported it (or hid it deep in articles so casual readers wouldn't see it). As for the travel ban -- where did Trump get the list ...

Re: The State of the States

Imagine where this probably would have gone if this was in the USSA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgJpCAbU2IU The cop, who was on his own at the time, walks toward his car with his back turned. Clearly a different attitude to being fearful. (The citizen was a bit too defensive . . . but still wi...

Re: Trouble in the Atacama?

I know -- I've been there. But this article is the first I've read/heard about lithium extraction possibly messing up the ecology and endangering the flamingos.

Is there truth behind that?

Trouble in the Atacama?

Has anyone seen anything relating to this article?

This is the first I knew that the Atacama was a primary source for the stuff used to make lithium batteries.

Re: UFO: Valparaiso

So, when the topic is UFOs, Mrs. Clinton worries about national security, but when it relates to "stuff" that other nations shouldn't see, Madam Secretary thought it would be a great idea to handle all her official e-mails through a private, unsecured server in the basement of her home in New York. ...

Re: Hotel in Osorno

I tried again with Google Maps. I think the hotel I'm thinking of is the Gran Hotel (or Hotel Gran), on Av. Bernardo O'Higgins. Does that sound right? Does anyone know if it still exists, and if it's still in business? When we stayed there things were a bit threadbare, the elevator didn't work (eith...

Hotel in Osorno

Around 2005 to 2007, my wife and I found ourselves in Osorno on a couple of occasions. We stayed at a rather old, once elegant but then somewhat run-down hotel that fronted an a major street with a car park in front, and beyond that a park or square that led to a large church. I've been racking my b...

Re: Venezuela Wake, countdown to implosion

As I read more depressing news about Venezuela, I am reminded of the irony that when I entered the 7th grade in the U.S. back in the late 1950s, I decided to take Spanish as a foreign language rather than French (my mother's preference) specifically because I believed that in the future Venezuela wa...
