-Things you should be aware of if you ever have a swimming pool in Latin America.
-Believe it or not, there can be as many as 100 tiny earthquakes a day that register 2 points or less on the Richter scale. And that’s not to say there are 100 daily quakes for all of Latin America… but 100 plus for any given location in Latin America! Thankfully you won’t feel any of them (your dog might), though they can slowly but surely do some cumulative damage to buildings and such .
-Have you heard of an ostensibly "benevolent and humanitarian" agency with the soothing name, USAID? It’s the so called “United States Agency for International Development”? In Latin America you’ll see their letters on very secure, highly fortified and monitored buildings in most all large cities. So what’s that all about? Its all just sick propaganda, and here’s the real story...
-If you need a job and don’t mind selling your soul to the devil, you can become part of the problem by applying for a job at a US consulate or embassy in Latin America. Check the locals papers, they’re always hiring..  (but you'll have to be somewhat bilingual)
-Do you see red after hearing how certain thick-headed government do-nothing mid-level employees retire with massive six-figure pensions…. and often with multiple pensions? Here’s a story direct from the horse’s mouth that just about beats everything you’ve heard about gluttonously excessive government pensions. And what might all that have to do with Latin America? Get ready to see more red!            
What’s your exit plan? Do you have a "Plan B"? The clock is ticking….
