Re: I predict economic disaster for Mexico ...

SOME Cubans "have risked their lives on rafts made of trash in order to reach a vastly better life in the U.S." The vast majoruty of Cubans have not done so, not even tried. Those who stayed behind are by far better educated and have a better health care than people in any other Latin American coun...

Mexico was in bad shape before this new guy took over as president anyway. Give Obrador the benefit of the doubt and wait to see how he performs.
GIve Chavez a chance too, or something similar was said some years ago... worked out well for Venezula, eh?

Happy Thanksgiving (or whatever pagan festival you may be observing)

Happy Thanksgiving All! May you all enjoy being cooped up with extended family for many days of drinking, eating and lively, um, conversations! I am off to the mountains around the NC/Va border for the festivities. I do hope to get a bit of big game hunting in while there, being as it is rumored to ...

Re: Can the US be Defeated?

Do you believe Putin or XI would use them in the hope that their populations would not be completely wiped out? I do. Particularly with Putin. He'll survive in a bunker somewhere. SO will XI of that matter. Two weeks after large portions of Russia will be safe from fall out. Same with the US and Ch...

Re: Israel

"US Votes for Israel's Right to Golan Heights" https://gellerreport.com/2018/11/us-votes-golan.html/ Looks like most governments have no objection to having Hezbollah up on the Golan raining death and destruction down on the Israelis . . . They could do that from Lebanon's southern border, and they...

I couldn't say it any better. I don't know how long it will take, but we will get back control of our Continent, and send all US troops back to their country. Without which we will have another war in Europe.

Re: Can the US be Defeated?

Two weeks after large portions of Russia will be safe from fall out. Same with the US and China. People in all three countries will survive.
