One wud rightly conclude my brief recent blurbs herein r antithetical to the purpose of this website, and to the majority(?) of its' membership. C'est la vie.

    I had never seen your writings before and all of a sudden I see someone that is snarling, spitting and spewing insults to all with no apparent reason, ‘as nutty as a run over dog in the freeway.’

    Most all in here are kind. I do not include myself as being kind. Salud!

    The odds are excellent, u kno that from your own readings of history. Egyptian, Phoenician, Greek, Roman, to name only a few of the ancient ones. The Spanish, English, French, Soviet etc. All went down the tubes. Some quietly. Others violently. As much as I abhor war, and nucleur weaponry terrifies me (Did u live during the Kennedy-Kruschev show down? I sat thru that showdown - terrified, as did most Americans and Canadians). Succinctly, America has numerous Achillies heels. As more and more nations, big and small, aqquire the BIG BOMB and the means to deliver them to American soil, or elsewhere, the less hegonemy the US will have in being the dominate military force the world has yet seen, a military force used as a tool to enforce Washington's global political objectives., which are after all, asn they bhave been with all other empires, the guaranteed ensurance of essential resources.

    An observation - A gringo mixing with Nicas is engaging in a form of cultural imperialism. The world could be a very nasty place for travelers if cultures never influenced each other.

    Anyway, greetings to the Sage of Southern Ontario.

    a comment or 2. I wud say that the only "imperialism" was that I strived 2 learn as much about Nicaragua and its peoples as I cud. So, if anything I exploited Nicas. And while I suppose there is something I cud impart to Nicas, they get enuf Anglo TV that there's not too much I cud say to shape their view of the world. And it wud be a sad world if people of differing cultures didn't learn from each other.

    That reads like a quote from the speech by Hugo Chavez at Petro Caribe yesterday in Nevis. No plagarism here sir.
