Currently in the Motherland

When Costa Rica's Tio Samuel and national press mention Nicaragua's recent course of actions with border issues, suddenly it was "los nicos" and their "techniques."
Leading Costa Rica to take actions igniting a flame of contradiction, and possibility of conflict between these governments.   This conflict is one in which the "enemy" in this scenario was officially identified by President Chinchilla while giving his order to  border patrol. It's the "Nicaraguans."
This is a pretty big deal. One of the poorest third world countries to date is suing the guy next door. They are dancing on a line that no one has ever thought existed. Having moral and displaying and loyalty, and passion  for your soil is not soemthing to mess with. It's a little bit dangerous when it is tested through a pending international trial to draw the border according to. I think Nicaragua has already run out of nails to bite on each hand.
Latinos, they are some passionate ass people. Also a little emotionally driven, and freaking intense. It's easy to fall into the irrational, come conspiration theory, or some daydream of the N word America has nightmares about: Nationalization. But, this is where it gets tricky. If you think about the fact once country has a NATIONAL press, while the other does not, along with the government and people, some message could very easily take a sharp turn like a game of telephone. I will say there is a 90% chance either country will either be misinformed or misinform it's people suddenly making one or both countries to feel their territorial security is threatened. Since they are more focused on the people rather than the individual, that same 90% probablility applies to the chances of the people to rise up. And believe me, they would rather fight than let their country lose itself.
Both governments have a degree of blindness. Costa Rica wants to justify building past the border, out of bounds, and Nicaragua  is still working on the implementation of a successful strategy for eco protection, making that sustainable and managable, and then I guess it's like wash, rinse, repeat. This is a big roadblock. It's a roadblock for a roadblock. The San Juan River Binational Basin is what this all revolves around, and the conflict has developed into a forgotten argument with the sky.
If both governments make nice, and meet literally half way, it's going to look pretty fair on both sides. They will both have to come to the common conclusion of the fact it is vital to agree on a border marking process on soil. But it doesn't stop there.For the most successful result, they have to work together on this process, and have some kind of coordinated management of the water shed that both countries share. Clearly this is not the first time there's been a fight over who gets to do what they want. 
So anyways, the emergence of the Rio San Juan Paved, that Costa Rica is already building through it's sovereign territory on the right bank of Rio San Juan. Allow me to politely point out that this totally discredits, outright belies whatever so-called eco and enviromentalist name tag. I think this is another step of tunnel vision that could ultimately be the cause of more of the masses being provoked to escalate further in ways that will not have a positive end result for either country.

You don't have to be friends, guys. You just have to wrap this up so we can go back to talking about how Ortega bought a billion Nacatamales, and then fed his people. Maybe our elected officials should be required to donate 40% of campaign funds to the hungry people here, too.

Hey, I'm allowed to dream.

Rebels, where you at?

Libyan combat boots with velcro for laces blew up a city concentrated with rebels.

Libya's third largest city, the only rebel stronghold in the west of the country, has been under a punishing siege by Gaddafi's forces for seven weeks. Hundreds have died. The voice of the rebels reported three rebels announced dead and 17 attacks leaving others wounded in the last day or two. War kept alive by the afternoon sun, and explosions of gun powder acting as background music. There's shit on the streets like bits of buildings, fucked, shot out cars and broken glass. There's even a few bedframes. What the hell?

Libyan state television said NATO forces had struck a part of Tripoli, killing seven people and wounding 18 others. NATO said the target was a military command bunker and forces later went south killing or wounding several people in
Gharyan. Lybian TV spoke, and NATO shut up.

Another NATO official told Reuters on Thursday: "We want to maintain and increase pressure on the frontline units but the biggest risk in doing that is civilian casualties.

What happens when they figure out that there's such thing as a "human shield?"

The world has changed quite a bit. I think that Obama being today's president says something. But not just that part of my world has changed.

The Giants won the World Series. The earthquake in Japan, Chile, gay rights, equal rights, worker's rights, right-wing extremists in TX changing 200 years of history, more youtube, Lady Gaga, Birthers (Fucking Birthers..) and the list goes on. But the thing I'm getting to here today, is Libya, and just revolution in general. (I know, I know, always talking about revolution. But it really will happen!)

My question for whoever you are out there, is this:

If change is constant, are there different stages of change itself? Is there a beginning or an ending point?

Think about it for a second.

The journey to change, or through change doesn't really have a destination. This month's headlines consist of "Egyptian political reform", "revolution" here, there, this that. But have we taken a second to really see what this all means?

I believe that anything is possible. But the headlines we claim are definitely misleading. The media has been taken over by their contributors, sponsors, and the government. Why do you think FOX is so successful? Let me tell you that there is a difference between NEWS and OPINION. It's just that Fox conveniently leaves pages blank for you to fill. What is opinion becomes news. That's what we call, a conservative take over. Be careful world, you're getting brainwashed in ways you can't even imagine.

This system is absolutely corrupt. Don't even get me started on the JFK shooting. I'll give you an earful. Or I suppose in this case an eyeful.

Anyways, the news has been twisted to what this Big Brother wants you to know. What Big Brother feels is acceptable for the masses to know. We are the majority. Go get educated.

More conspiracy theories to come.

America as Hypocrites

Listen to the latest Democrat commentary on Libya. They only spit words backing up Obama, justifying everything. Mostly bouncing off the lack of support for Bush.
Now listen to the Latest Republican commentary. Saying shit like "there's no real exit strategy" or whining about how bad the timing is. Let me just intervene with a question for the GOP, when the fuck is it good timing for invasion or war?
You can definitely see both parties rooting for THEIR guy and bashing the OTHER guy.

Of course the main reason for this double standard shit is because if you claim a party, and most of what comes with it rather than the other, you have to be pure. (What the hell about politics is pure?!) You have to overlook things and have tunnel vision for your party and your loyalty. This kind of hypocrite is not in very high demand, but the supply is overflowing. Of course you can't really have the same standards for everyone. We're humans, we have favorites, we lean to one side more than the other. But because we're humans, our politics reflects our lack of perfection. American politics is an example of a lack of fucking excellence. American hypocritical politics is no nothing new, just on the rise. Why not just follow your GUT and screw the rest? Oh yeah, I forgot that American politics isn't really politics, it's a STAGE. Take your rolls, everyone! Bush, Palin, did you forget your lines again?

All I know is that Republicans, right-wing extremists, whatever..are ridiculously shameless. They know that their followers are stupid. Hey, whatever right? They'll just keep watching FOX and listening to Limbaugh. While grassroots activists wipe blood and sweat from their brows. Who's who?
