Comment on Kendall’s First Day in Cali’s Villanueva Prison by Rob http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2014/07/kendall-villanueva-prison-cali-colombia/comment-page-1/#comment-238110 Fri, 25 Jul 2014 07:20:59 +0000 http://www.expat-chronicles.com/?p=13863#comment-238110 Aren’t these peso values all out of whack?

Comment on Canadian Expat Executed in Costa Rica by Colin http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2014/07/brad-deering-costa-rica/comment-page-1/#comment-237804 Thu, 24 Jul 2014 21:27:57 +0000 http://www.expat-chronicles.com/?p=14265#comment-237804 @ Zac and Mark –

I didn’t want to say it in the article, but in my expert opinion Deering’s training emphasized cosmetics. Which is to say, steroids and glamour muscles (no squatting or deadlifting ever) and MMA training for Facebook pics (not to compete or make money).

Comment on Does Sex Tourism Save Lives? by JoeAmerica http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2012/06/sex-tourism-poverty/comment-page-1/#comment-237253 Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:33:56 +0000 http://www.expat-chronicles.com/?p=9438#comment-237253 Whoring may be a key ingredient to social progress.
My explanation is abbreviated.

First thing to note: Actual operation whoring; when evaluating whoring the actual amount that is actually happening is the measure. Measuring hypocrisy is something quite different.

Next HBD. Google “HBD Chick” to understand what this means and entails.

The idea:
Effects of whoring = Out-breeding and progress into modernity
Vs.
Effects of Islam and the berka = inbreeding and clannish fiefdoms.

Comment on Contributed Story: Teaching at Colombian Colegios (a Warning) by Lotta http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2014/07/teach-english-in-colombia-private-schools/comment-page-1/#comment-236746 Tue, 22 Jul 2014 06:42:55 +0000 http://www.expat-chronicles.com/?p=14187#comment-236746 I can completely relate to your experience. If you teach in Colombia you either play by their rules or leave with dissapointment. Thanks for sharing. I’m glad I’m not the only one with a similar experience.
