Let's see. Visited In-Laws many times in Argentina. Argentinian born Wife owns Vineyards in Argentina (Please buy their wine - it is the best). Also owns home in Buenos Aries (Lovely City, visited many times). Visited Chile, Venezuela, Columbia, Brazil, Honduras many times. Loved Mexico, especially The Yucatan, while inspecting The Mayan Pyramids.

In addition: Lived in Havana Cuba for one year, as a boy, pre-Fidel.

Mi español es muy bueno!

You do realize that all of that is just completely irrelevant right? No wait, what am I saying, you don't or you wouldn't have posted all of that.

Мишель...

Do you realize it was in response to Es99 assertion I was living in a 'bubble', and that was my reply.

Of course you knew that. But your response was a Typical Left/Right Wing example of disinformation.

Of course you and Es99 know more about what people really think, than anyone who has either lived, or spent long times with them, while speaking in their language.

Of course you do.

Sorry I won't be able to quickly reply to another of your disingenuous posts. I am going to a lovely South Florida beach with my wife. Sitting at our favorite outdoor Café. While watching Palm Trees swaying in the Tropical Breezes, in front of Beautiful Blue Ocean Waters.

Watching those Air Strikes WITHIN Kobane:

Would not have been done without Western (Read American) 'Boots On The Ground', directing the strikes.

Ah, so you(America that is) are solely taking the credit for being badly organised where co-ordination is concerned?

These Air Strikes were apparently done with B1 Bombers. Were they flown by Non-American Crews? Who would be 'On the ground' directing these strikes?

Only "apparently"? Isn't US intelligence up to the task then?

Was I speaking about the other strikes outside of the populated areas? No.

Did I say, or imply, others weren't involved in The Air Campaign? No.

The ONLY Western, non-Arab, Country involved, was The USA, according to the article YOU supplied.

So...

Note to myself: Stop responding the silly posts.


There have been many articles posted, with one stating that the coordination between air & ground is sorely lacking, & as you stated, the ground direction is done by yourselves, hence the impression being seen that it's "Target or Bust"

What?

Just mentioned that Air Strikes, within populated area's, need 'Boots on the Ground'. Implied nothing more.

I know I disregarding my note to myself. But I am awaiting my Wife 'finishing' her hair, before we go out.

So the problem is the governments that they have? and my point that the US has a habit of installing the governments it wants rather than the democratically elected ones has nothing to do with it.

Ok. Got it.

Es99...

Which Existing Government's were 'Installed' by The USA?

Nicaragua? The 'Old Ortega Regime' is back in power, and as corrupt as ever.

Argentina? Venezuela? Chile? Columbia? Brazil? Peru? Uruguay? Mexico? Could keep on going.

Es99...

Which ones?

Edit: Same question for Мишель. You're both living in the past, and believe these people are nothing more than USA Vassals, and have made no mistakes on their own.

It appears we are guessing.

Hope The Doctor's aren't. But, I don't believe they 'know' everything regarding the mode's of transmission.

Strange... The family members show no signs of the disease?

I don't think it's strange.
Ebola does not have an airborne vector of transmission otherwise there would be orders of magnitude more infected persons.

Then it would be like flu and be a disease that would wipe a significant fraction of the earths population of humans out.

So it appears that casual family contact isn't an issue, but intimate medical contact is. Just what you have been being told. Now get over your hysterical scare.

Then what is the mode of transmission in West Africa?

Obviously the man got sicker as time progressed with vomiting, diarrhoea, and bleeding from orifices, all of which the health care workers had to deal with.
There may have been slip-ups in dealing with this disease, but every new case is a lesson in how to combat it from spreading further, at least in countries with good medical care.
If only more attention and resources had been allocated, when this outbreak was first detected in Africa, many lives and much weeping and gnashing of teeth could have been spared.

He went to the Hospital, via ambulance, AFTER vomiting/diarrhea in the Family's House, and reportedly in the Parking Area in front of the residence. Who cleaned both area's up? How? Did they Use CDC Guidelines?

Good points. We are all responsible for our own mistakes, but who is held responsible when those mistakes are caused by others interfering or manipulating us?

Ourselves?


They should be held responsible but when they have more 'power' than you, we're talking about fighting a losing battle.

You have to understand. 'The Power' in many of these Country's is Their Own Ruling Class. Who are Extremely Rich and Powerful by STEALING from their own people.

Take Mexico, as an example. Just ONE Change in Their Constitution: Allowing non-Mexican Companies and People to BUY and OWN Land/Factories within Mexico - WITHOUT a Mexican Partner - would result in an Economic Boom for the People. But THEIR Ruling Class will not allow this. A rich population would eventually kick out/kill these bums.

The USA is not The Only Power.

Unlike Es99's 'Thinking'.

Making People Responsible for THEIR Mistakes: Doesn't absolve anyone else of THEIR Responsibilities.

Over the decades, I have had this same conversation (en español of course) with Peoples of this Region.

While I agree (mostly) what they say about The USA: They will also agree that MANY of THEIR Problems are of THEIR OWN Making.

They would be shocked and angered, by those like Es99, who believe they should not be held responsible. They are Mature Adults, and shouldn't be treated as less.

Oh Clyde. How lovely your bubble must be to live in.

Hmmm. You are always wrong about others.

Bubble?

Es99....

Also owns home in Buenos Aries (Lovely City, visited many times). Visited Chile, Venezuela, Columbia, Brazil, Honduras many times.

How do you know about the People, Culture and Governments of that region? From books? Movies? TV Shows? Who's living in a bubble?

Of course you never really respond, when you understand the silliness, and worse of treating Non-European/American People as Children. Who cannot be held responsible for Their mistakes.

Again: Why are THEY not responsible for THEIR Mistakes?

Just repeating a question:

Why haven't the Dallas Family, of the Ebola Infected Man, contacted Ebola? Day 20 and counting.

He was vomiting, had diarrhea, and the Family had no protective gear.

Why ONLY The Health Care Workers?



Strange... The family members show no signs of the disease?

As of today: No.

Next, I stand by my assertion that South America is a collection of unstable states supported by a global drug trade. I have not heard any solid evidence to say otherwise so far.

Nor have you produced any evidence to support your claim. Sorry, but youre the one making the claims here, the burden of proof lies with you. Show us evidence that South American states are A) unstable and B) mostly reliant on international drug trade, meaning that the profits of any drug trade go straight into the government coffers and not into the pocket of a few drug lords who are beyond the law.

The Drug Lords are 'Paying Off' The Authority's, to continue their trade.

It is an Unholy Alliance.

Yes, many of these Country's are Unstable. However... The Drug Trade is not the Major Economic Stimulus for these Country's.

True.

...and they are unstable because the US has a deliberate policy of keeping them that way.

Can you stop? Answer - No.

Understand some person's believe that they can not be held responsible for THEIR own mistakes. Very disgusting philosophy.

I believe These Country's, and Peoples, should be held to the same standards regarding mistakes as The USA, and Western Europe Country's/Peoples.

Other Peoples/Country's doing them wrong: Does not absolve them of their responsibility for THEIR conditions. They are not children. Don't treat them as children.

Thank you so much. I am now running CUDA23 with no problems.
Not sure that I made the right picks on the installers many options - I will have to read a lot more on that - to know what I should be doing.....

There is always a lot of Trial and Error in this.

lol!
_____________
note to self.
Must remember not criticize the class of rich and powerful people known as
bankers, politicians, drug cartels, and law enforcement.
That would just be mindless, silly, bigotry on my part!

GOT IT? Yes Got It!

Silly and Narrow Minded. Never said disregard what you penned in your Note.

Just stated you have to add MANY Other Things.

Your response was a Typically Disingenuous Left/Right Wing Response.

Thank you for PROVING me correct.

Evidence does not support civil rights charges.


Police Officer in Ferguson Is Said to Recount a Struggle

WASHINGTON — The police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., two months ago has told investigators that he was pinned in his vehicle and in fear for his life as he struggled over his gun with Mr. Brown, according to government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation into the matter.

The officer, Darren Wilson, has told the authorities that during the scuffle, Mr. Brown reached for the gun. It was fired twice in the car, according to forensics tests performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first bullet struck Mr. Brown in the arm; the second bullet missed.

The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform. Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.

This is the first public account of Officer Wilson’s testimony to investigators, but it does not explain why, after he emerged from his vehicle, he fired at Mr. Brown multiple times. It contradicts some witness accounts, and it will not calm those who have been demanding to know why an unarmed man was shot a total of six times. Mr. Brown’s death continues to fuel anger and sometimes-violent protests.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/18/us/ferguson-case-officer-is-said-to-cite-struggle.html

AN explanation, disregarding those Vile Bigots who state either the white person has to be a racist, or the black person has to be...

YOU are the Person, who a Very Large and Powerful Male assaulted, and attempted to kill inside your car, he attempted to get your gun, possibly to kill you. Why else would he reach for your gun? (Scientific Forensics tends to agree with this story).

The Large and Powerful Male then flees, after suffering a gun shot wound inside your car.

He turns, then 'Bull Rushes' (according to witnesses) YOU! Would YOU now reasonably believe YOUR Life Is In Danger. Of course YOU would. Why else would the Large and Powerful Male be doing this? Of course, to AGAIN attempt to take YOUR Gun to kill YOU. Forget Hollywood Fantasy's: Would YOU have a reasonable chance to Physically Subdue this Larger and Powerful Male? The Real World Answer is NO. YOU are within seconds of being killed.

What would YOU do.

Where is Race involved? No where. We are doing a decent job of Marginalizing The KKK. We now have to Marginalize the Anti-White Bigots.

Note: The above scenario is just one possibly. Why was it disregarded?

Note#2: The Officer may have committed a Criminal Act. Why the 'Rush to Judgment? My Answer - Other Agenda's. Not a search for The Truth'.

Note#3: Try not to ascribe Sane, nor Reasonable Actions, regarding the person killed. People do 'Lose Their Minds' at times.
