Topic Do you think Sanders could beat Trump if he gets the Democratic nod?
06 Jun 2016 19:01
Bernie's 'socialism' is basically FDR's 'socialism' and FDR was such a popular President they had to pass a Constitutional Amendment to limit Presidential terms to 2 because Americans loved him so much he had already won 4 times! Americans love socialism! Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment Insurance, Disability Insurance (SSDI), National Parks System, Public Libraries, National Weather Service, The Interstate Highway System, and a thousand other public services that benefit Americans... all socialism, all paid for by our taxes! All Americans are socialists if they use any of these programs and services.
Bernie would kick Trump's ass. Every poll shows it clearly. He's the only sane choice.
Americans loves socialism because they have no fucking idea what real socialism does to a country. They only think it sounds "fair" equality for all. The truth is in Socialism the rich will still be rich and the only change its going to be for the poor they will get poorer. The truth is life is not a fucking Utopia and Socialism is a fucking Unicorn, it sounds great in concept but its all a fantasy. Believe me Im Venezuelan i know.
Do i support Trump fuck no, but i say the same for all of the others too.

Damn girl, how much hair you got going on down there...
Not much thanks to tria

I'm going to start laser in the fall - either professionally OR... I wouldn't mind trying the Tria system first. I've heard good reviews on that. It's pricey though, so I'm waiting for a sale.
I have used a Tria system for the past 2 years, i think they are really good, I'm not good with pain so this is a great way to get rid of hair for me.
It does have a few downfalls: i have used it for 2 years and the hair keeps on growing (its not a permanent solution as some people think) but the hair does grows thinner, the other thing i don't like is that it takes a lot of time to do it , so i normally do it while watching tv and not in a hurry, also the batteries only last to me for one section (bikini area is one seating, full Brazilian another) this is because you have to go through the area you are doing 3 times each use.
I have had it for 2 almost 3 years so maybe the newer versions have better batteries on them. But if you ask me its totally worth the money and time.

Here are a few more videos that can show you what we have been living the past few months. Opposition does a protest, it gets attacked by the National Guard and all hell breaks loose. I have been around so much tear gas this past few months that you almost get immune to it, all though i have to admit that i only stay till the tear gas starts and then i leave, I'm not that brave. Too many deaths... Too many Violations of HHRR... Too much hatred... '

Wow, I previously presented a venue where people could actually take voice ( read your own thread before cutting my throat). My mention of those on street corners was noted since, like in the 70's with Cuban immigrants, there was a lot of grandstanding but little actual effort on many sides. Most efforts that are truly effective usually go unnoticed. With a readership pronounced by this site I thought, hey, if they all cast their support of active petitions with the White House, that might actual be more effective than being a spectacle for the local news channel to capture.
As for my efforts. Yes, I have gone to the sites mentioned by me and cast my SUPPORT of your countrymen and women and asked if others would do so as well. Hopefully they have. That would be a good measure as to whether or not people actually take substantive action other than just wishing good wishes and casting a positive pebble into the ethereal pond. I also gave a couple hundred dollars to one of the local shop keepers here in downtown Miami who, is from Venezuela and consistently tries to get supplies to YOUR country on a repeated basis.
Your welcome. And no, the petitions did not get all the signatures needed. I feel like an asshole for actually getting people involved after your insipid tirade.
So you know what, FUCK YOU. I try to do more than just act like a jack ass, herein, and like others here in sunny South Florida. Sorry for giving a shit. Try reading your own thread in whole before posting angrily toward someone and jumping at the first thing that tickles your anger. Sorry I did not preface what I said with ineffective "golly gee, wow that's just horrible, my thoughts and sympathies go to you and your family. I will keep you in my prayers nightly and wish you and yours all the best.
I tried and will continue to help people around me. Except for those that are just assholes.
Is this how things work now a days? just because you do a good deed, then people are not allowed to tell you when you are been a dickhead?
I have read this thread completely, actually if you go and read it again you will see that i thanked you for the help! am I a hot headed person? normally no, right now yes very very much, but i still stand behind every single word of my post. Just because you are helping one way, and you think thats the best way to help, doesn't mean you have to put down other people's help. Maybe they are doing all that you are AND doing the street protests, maybe thats the way they feel comfortable or they think can reach more people, who knows? but they are doing something to help us and thats more than enough for me. As i said before probably does people have family and friends living here, and they just can't stay at home doing nothing. So why putting them down just because you think your way is the best way?
And about all the other nonsense name calling rant that you just did, No I'm not looking for pity, I'm looking to inform people about whats going on here since i know its not a big news over there. If you think you are stupid for getting people involved just because i call you out on your bullshit, then yes maybe you are stupid for believing that one person is important enough to make you stop helping 30 million people that lives in Venezuela.
IN OTHER NEWS
2 more Majors were put in jail.
36 people have died since the protest started. 16 of them with shots at their heads.

Last News piece from Miami
Same here in the US rem. Most pundit chat has and is currently focused on Crimea, and the lost plane in Southeast Asia. I mean, did they never see the show "Lost?"
Maduro seems to be on the defensive, and sporting the idle threats much like his predecessor. Local Venezuelan's seem to be idle as well, with ridiculous 20 person protests on sunny South Florida street corners during the weekend and hashtag references on personal vehicles.
At least does 20 ridiculous protestors are doing something!! It must be really easy to critique people when you live in sunny south florida, and your family does too. But i can assure you that for those "idle" 20 people is not so easy to know that their friends and family back here, are living a real nightmare every single fucking day of their lives!!! I can assure you that for my sister that lives in the US NOTHING looks sunny right now, and even when she tries to live her "normal" life all she finds herself doing is looking for Venezuelan news and calling us to see if we are alive and well.
For those of you that are actually trying to get news, here are the latest:
31 people have died, most on the hands of the National Guard or Paramilitar groups. 1.435 people have been put in jail. 543 human rights violations. Today the Mayor of San Cristobal (The place where everything started) have been taken into government custody, illegally without a court order. A University was burned down today by government supporters. The supreme court has prohibited protest in 5 states, which is completely unconstitutional. The government stopped sending Gasoline and water to the places where the protest are bigger.
So yeah we are doing fucking great over here.
05 Mar 2014 18:50
So far 19 people have been killed, 1066 have been put in jail and there is 360 human right violations.
Today is one year since Chavez died and Raul Castro is here to commemorate him, in the few hours that he has been here things has gone worse. Maduro told the OEA to leave the country, broke relationships with Panama and asked paramilitary forces to go out and attack anyone that is protesting. Since this happen a big part of the city was left without electricity, the national guard is attacking the main places were protestors are, and all i can hear around my neighbourhood is hundreds of motorcycles screaming that if we go out they are gonna shoot us death.
i still can't see when or how we are gonna make all of this stop, things keep getting worse and i can't see the light at the end of the tunnel.
19 Feb 2014 07:56
Im probably not in the best state of mind to be imparcial wether or not Socialism is good or if it works. But i do know that i do believe in equal rights and equal benefits for all, but NOT if that means equal oppression, equal poverty and equal murder of human rights. And thats all we have got from Socialism in this country.
I know it kind of works in France and maybe in spain but are they real socialists? or are all the other countries that call themselves socialists, misinterpreting the meaning and thinking its the same as mascarade Dictatorship?
Here i'll leave you a link to the news in Ukrain even though they are thousand of kilometres away from us, right now they are having a VERY similar situation to us http://thoughtcatalog.com/danielle-ryan/2014/02/i-am-a-ukrainian-this-needs-to-go-viral/#gfZtPjZ2wsk48gY4.01 please read and inform yourselves and help them as much as you can too.

Thank you all for your support, sorry for not answering before, but it has been a tough long couple of days.
Today the biggest leader of the opposition has been put in jail, we all knew that this was gonna happen, but it still left us dumbfounded. Yesterday a 17 year old kid was murdered by a PDVSA (Government oil company) worker. He ran over him with his truck while the kid was protesting in the streets. 8 of the people that were put on jail and that are free now, are going to international bodies to complain that they were raped with a gun while in jail, 18 are complaining that they were electrocuted while in jail and 1 has skull fracture that occur while in jail.
This all its just a horrible nightmare that we just don't know why, how and when its going to end. Even though all i can do while writing this is cry, i still don't think all that is happening its gonna be enough to end this, and to finally get the change this country needs.
If you want to see more info look on twitter
16 Feb 2014 07:51
I'll leave this 2 videos, that shows what is going on in Venezuela in the last few days in a nutshell, and some important numbers that everyone should know.
- 4 protesters have died, all with shotguns on their heads.
- 140 students in jail
- 39 missing students
- The only tv station that was showing what was going on, has been shut down.
- Twitter has confirmed that the Venezuelan Government is trying to shut down all images from that social network. (social media is right now the only way, to know whats going on)
If you can spread the word i would really appreciate it.

I'm not. Jumping to false conclusions seems to be a common thing here.

Topic Am i really that unattractive?
09 Jul 2013 14:41
The thing is, you probably have victim written across your forehead in an invisible tattoo that only women can see. Many women are little more than parasites, given the chance. They measure their self-worth by how much attention they can get from men and how hot of a bf they can attract. Even if they don't want to be with you, they could be helping you find a gf, but they're getting what they want from you, so why should they? You really don't want to know them, at least not on their terms. If they don't want to meet you halfway, kick them to the curb.
You must be such a joy to hang out with! I cant think of the reason why you are divorced!
Topic Egyptian Military Coup or new turn for Democracy?
09 Jul 2013 14:03
It certainly seem like the coup had the support of the majority of Mursi's supporters, but do we really know that? Mursi won the election pretty much fair and sqaure (at least as fair as most democracies in the world are concerened) so a year ago it seemed like he had the majority of the people backing him. Add that analyzists have described the operation as too organised to be something that happened in the spur of the moment. This was something that had been planned for some time and the demonstrations was pretty much the excuse the army needed to dethrone Mursi.
I think the military powers in Egypt will have a lot to say in politics for some time. In many cases I fear the government will only be puppets until they slowly get more and more democrasised. But I'm not too worried about the future of Egypt. They've just gotten rid of a dictatorship. We'd be naive to believe that just after a dictatroship disappears they can have a smooth transition into a democracy.
Its not really a democracy just because they have elections. is it really fair and square elections when all the high powers are in hands of the government and thats the same government that won?. When there is not real separation of powers isnt it should be concider totalitarism?
I dont concider it a coup, i concider it as the militaries finally saying enough is enough, we wont suopport a dictator anymore.

Thank you all for your messages! She is the cutest thing ever and super smart. Really i think i have like an indigo dog LOL
She is not even 2 months old, so i can't take her for walks yet, so yeah im potty training her to use news paper. So far she is doing really good peeing in there but not so much pooping. I think she is a snob and hates pooping in news paper :p
At the office everyone is in love with her (how could they not, look at her!!) and she is adapting really good. I think its great that im taking her right now, because when she gets older she will be use to be around people and noises.
Even though i cant remember the last time i clean floors this much, im completely happy with the decision that i made getting her! She is amazing!

Tomorrow will be her first day at work, so wish us luck! lol

24 May 2013 18:53
Im going tomorrow to a dog show where they also sell dogs, im going to see and learn more about the different breeds that could work for me. If i bring one home ill let you all know :)
I love labradors also, i have always wanted a chocolate one, but i think that my lifestyle right now doesnt fit with a big dog. I think it wouldnt be fair for the dog or for me. So i guess ill have to wait to get that labrador at some other point in my life. Maybe bigger house or more free time, for right now i have to look for a smaller dog.
Wish me luck tomorrow!!
Topic Bringing a puppy home
24 May 2013 09:20
Again thank you for all your input!
Now im re reading all the breeds they are and rethinking which one can actually be good for my particular situation. Maybe a basset hound that are more lay back and calm could fit better for me to bring to work, but then the bigger the dog the bigger the mess... I dont think i am the have a purse pet kind of person and the only small breed that i like is Yorkshire, but they are probably way more easy to take care of and handle.
Ok i think i have a lot to think about!!
EDIT: Ok erase Yorkshire from the list, just read about them and they are noisy and are prone to a lot of health issues!
