#1- Thank god for fearless maids and gardeners:
A report on varieties of insects, creatures and critters on the property and in the house. The bugs were here first. We’re the interlopers.  
#2-Don’t give your dough to organized charities. You feel good for the moment but are just financing the organizer’s lifestyles: The are many ways Expats can give back to the locals and also help the environment in the process. Giving dough to some “do gooder” organization is not one of them. Today we have an excellent example of an Expat doing the right thing..
 #3- Why is the 3rd world so… well…. 3rd world?
Thank the IMF, the World Bank, the UN and the USA for almost all that is screwed up politically and economically in Latin America.
 #4-Capital Punishment in Latin America: All Latin countries once had the death penalty but in the last 30 years most have repealed the law. Why? Would you believe as a condition for obtaining humanitarian aid and structural loans from the IMF and World Bank(most of which have been skimmed and misused or by lard-ass politicians)? Then right afterward, Latin crime skyrocketed and now the Latin pubic is clamoring once again for the death penalty. So now there’s an ongoing debate and political tug-of-war between the masses andCatholic and Christian groups.  
  #5-Consult with Johnny- Schedule a cell or Skype call: Set up a time to talk and I’ll help you sort out your own specific Latin American “PLAN- B”. Just write “CONSULT” in the subject line with a short list of questions/talking points to:
#6- Johnny’s next (and perhaps final) “Expat Insider” Plan ‘B’ Seminar will take place on Saturday, January 7th thru Thursday, January 12th , 2017. To get in on the Early-bird discount list email: Attendance will be very limited so do act now.
