#1- Why are more US troops arriving in Colombia?
I bet you didn’t even know we had them there. And of course the bureau-rats give the same tired reason, “we must continue to fight the Drug War“. WTF! What a false and stupid narrative? Are we that stupid? Well we must be since they keep getting away with it…

#2- A list of Latin Countries I DO NOT RECOMMEND for a Plan B destination (and the reasons why):

#3- What Stateside folks really think of long term EXPATS in Latin America:
Some people view them as lucky stiffs who’ve somehow won a kind of lottery while others see them as having had a premature vision, meaning they just were a bit smarter and more astute than the next guy. So did they land in their piece of paradise by luck or by skill and forward thinking?
 
#4- A European Expat speaks out:
What about having a “Plan B” in Europe? Today we have another “boots on the ground” story that will certainly surprise and amuse you.  
 
#5 Would you like to buy, sell and make money with Bitcoin and crypto currency but don’t feeling confident enough to get in?

#1- The full dope on how to get practically any Latin Country driver’s license on the grey market, whether you qualify or not:
The advantages and pitfalls of getting and flashing a quasi-legal Driver’s License. Sure, most of the grey market DL’s look and feel perfectly legit, but there is a nagging question; are they truly 100% registered in the local govt. transit system and will they pass police muster? Its today’s first very un-PC “boots on the ground” story.  
 
#2- Protesting for George Floyd in Latin America:
Yes, police brutality and GF protest groups are popping up in many Latin big cities. Meanwhile the average Latino protester has no idea who the guy is, can’t spell his name and have no idea what a Minneapolis or Minnesota is, nor do they how to find it on the map. So then, who is organizing these events and how do the locals get sucked into the long distance madness when the've got cop problems right in their own backyards? You’ll be surprised at the answers (or maybe not)       
 
#3- Tourist are used to chiding Latin America for the ubiquitous presence of Barbed Wire and Razor Wire:
Meanwhile, as stateside chaos rules, US companies and individuals are suddenly ordering unprecedented truckloads of the stuff. Who should we be chiding now?
 
#4- 1001 more reasons to Get The Hell Out Of Dodge:
As if you needed more…  

#5- Your Solar Panel and Solar Energy installation questions answered:

#6- Would you like to buy, sell and make money with Bitcoin and crypto currency but don’t feeling confident enough to get in?

#1- What Latinos South of the Border think of USA police brutality, riots, looting and the general chaos:
Man, will you’ll be surprised!
 
#2- How is it possible that hundreds of rich, sociopathic, Latino felons and Narco kingpins, along with convicted, corrupt Latin Politicians can own and inhabit luxury condos and houses in the swankest areas of Miami, USA?
We’re talking convicted felons wanted in in their own countries who would be instantly jailed if they went back, yet the US State Department and Immigration idiots allow these parasites to continue to live like royalty in Miami. Have you had enough of it yet? Time to get out of Dodge!
 
 #3- It’s depressing to know that US police academies don’t want high IQ applicants:
They prefer average IQ applicants. Can you guess why?
 
#4- You need a ‘Plan B”, but scratch Argentina:
Unless of course you can live with 50% annual inflation AND mandatory vaccines for everyone. Yes vaccination is the law now, or no driver’s license, passport, air travel or schooling for the kids!

#5- Expat Eddie reveals some of the tricks he uses to fool the cops at police road blocks.

There are thousands of NGO’s in Latin America (and even more in China).

But like all tiny groups that grow into hierarchical bureaucracies, they nearly always become corrupt, self-serving and manipulative.

#1- The latest Virus update and Spontaneous lockdowns:
Occasionally some lame brain Latin president will suddenly order a weekend lock-down. Then on Monday things will open up and be back to almost "normal". Unfortunately the same lack of information, knowledge and judgement prevails with all s**t for brains bureaucrats.

#1- The latest Virus update. Stuck in da house (or not):
Things are opening up in Latin America faster than you think though much more so in CENTRAL AMERICA than South America. But if you think things are ever going to return to normal, well unfortunately that’s not gonna happen, not anywhere in the world. There is a NEW normal now. However, the good news is that though there will be severe freedom restrictions and power grabs- imposed by malignant politicians and Big Brother (who else? They never let a good crisis go to waste), the immutable fact is that down here in Latin America the lard ass authorities will always operate on manana time. That includes law enforcement, and thats a good thing. Meanwhile, as Latin countries continue to suck up and pay lip service to the USA by blindly adopting stupid 1st world lockdown laws and proclamations, its sooo refreshing to see that Latinos have such a healthy cynicism and deep distrust for their governments.    
 
#2- Latin Airlines are going bankrupt and dropping like flies, should we worry?
Nope, and here’s why…

#2- The latest Virus update is in da house (like you are):

#3- The Biggest Lair contest- and the Winner is..........:
