    Default Guide to the Perfect Latin American Idiot

    Available from Amazon, this was written by three Latin American writers and dismantles piece by piece everything the left has ever said about how the Evil USA and Spanish/Portuguese colonists are the cause of all Latin America's woes. Paricularly targeted is the book Open Veins of Latin America, a left leaning work about capitalist exploitation of Central and South America. The Idiot, they say, is akin to the "useful idiot" whose naivete is exploited by communist operatives whether or not they are true believers.

    An American Idiot north, center or south is a:

    Person who thinks it's about left or right, indulges in the propaganda thwarted upon one's daily life and disregards the facts and is so ignorant as not to educate one's self above the stage of being an idiot.

    I have mentioned "Like" buttons before. It is a way to judge popularity of a statement while you are reading it. Posters can see if they are saying the right thing or not from such a feature.

    Another method of showing a poster's popularity is a "Karma" button. People that say a lot of popular things will have displays (green bars) under their name. People that say a lot of stupid stuff would have a lot of red bars under their name. It is a handy feature for new users, someone that doesn't already know, who to take serious or not.

    Both are features of VBulletin.

    It's Sunday; my prayer: Lord, Please save us from the total dumbing-down of America..

    It started with Johnson's..Great society Programs...before then we had the top scores in Math/science.....now I think we are not in the top 15 in the world..

    Now we have the internet....the greatest "Tool" for learning in the history of the world...In the US, Al Gore's invention is being reduced to a grand "social network"

    And NOW you are suggesting that the TRN forum be reduced to silly icons and like/dislike buttoms; a forum where people actualy WRITE;

    Well here is what I say to that:
