    I agree 100% Robert!!! Airdale, I think I see where you were coming from and can't say I totally blame you, because we do give a lot of aid around the world. However, politicians like Obama deserve all the negatives they get. And I don't care who is saying it. I'm just happy we have some guys like Lone Wolf and Antonio out past our borders that actually know what's going on and can see past the media snow screen. I hear some foreigners comment on some of our politicians and I want to puke. But these two have it pegged and I agree with their assessment totally.

    Thanks Snake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:agree: And not only that Lone Wolf and Antonio, have to be gun loving folks just like us.

    Airdale, LATAM has some of the fastest growing economies going on as we speak. Many countries are making HUGE efforts on behalf of the welfare of their people. Many companies are also making huge contributions to better the life in this region. My company sponsors over 250,000 children in LATAM so they can get an education. Huge companies in the USA are tripping all over each other to start doing business in places that a few years ago you needed a body guards just to get out of the airport. I know this as a fact, my company is making a boatload of money out of this nifty trend. Hell China should be more worried about Brazil than us... And as far as drugs are concerned, plenty of them being grown in the forests in the good ol' US.

    We live in a global economy where the well being of the USA has deep repercussions all over the world. Antonio might have been unkind toward our president but who amongst us has not made a derogatory remark about a foreign leader. I'm not apologizing (and I read no other post doing so either) for our politics, foreign policy etc. The USA is a great country but we are not perfect and the day we loose the will to listen and learn, we die. Besides when we wrote the Bill of Rights there is no mention in there of the first amendment being an American Right. As a matter of fact many of our citizens have died fighting so other countries can enjoy these God given rights too.

    I agree !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There is a clear pattern emerging in US history in which Democrats get stuck cleaning up the messes of incompetent Republicans, set the country back on the path to success only to be blamed for the short term pain resulting from tough decisions they had to make to fix they mess they inherited.
    What a laughable idea! Only a progresso-lib could come up with a hair-brained statement like that. If progresso-libs weren't so busy mucking up the finances of America with their infusion of Marxism into our capitalist system since 1913, we wouldn't be in the mess we are in now. Progresso-libs are really good at throwing crap in the drinking water, then telling us someone else did it. I can see that the progresso-lib education system has been REALLY effective at brainwashing young minds to the point where they don't even recognize the truth anymore.

    Speaking of which the wife and I are talking about doing exactly that next year (what would you recommend as a good month to visit?). I have a good friend from grad school who's teaching at a university in Lima and I want to visit him. The wife also really wants to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

    I have like a ton of data to supply to you. Almost for sure you friend has also a lot of useful information and Lonewolf has already stated the best season to walk the Inca trail. Hope you'll have time for a few beers with us too.
    Drop us a mail as soon as you confirm your trip; never done that walk, but have been there a few times (In April-August), staying at a friend's house in the valley. Many ways to do it according to your budget, time, cross country experience, height tolerance and physical condition.
    Usually a week over there is enough to fulfill all the elemental "musts". Depending on what you like to do and see, there are also a lot of different options to visit in many other places.

    Gentlemen, I want to state something to finally close what has become a senseless argument due to a mix of misunderstandings and what looks like bigotry: Your national anthem ends up saying "O'er the home of the brave and the land of the free"; I've been like 20 times in the US (Mainly in the East coast, even driving from NYC to the Florida Keys) and this is absolutely true; you have a great country full of amazing people and with an admirable historical tradition, and you should keep it that way; don't let your politicians destroy that the way ours have done it with our country, specially considering that what happens over there also affects us one way or another.

    Thanks for all the kind words.
