(Of course, you should take this with a grain of salt, a sense of
humor if you will, but I always say America would be better off under
British rule. We would have universal healthcare, for example, if not
better transportation system. It's just something to make to wonder
about the nature of independence and dependency. In a globalized world
there's only one power. That's the power of money, right? Of course,
I'm trying to make them do something good instead of living under
caudillos and corruption)

It sounds like we failed to make anything meaningful out of
independence, so Spain is the next logical solution. Under Spanish
rule we can bring European civilization, something that's missing in
our countries, always following the model of the country to the north.
Naturally we have the wrong model of hardcore capitalism that trickles
down into our nations. Our elites travel and invest their money there
and... Well, you know the rest.

Spain is not in the best shape in its history but perhaps investing in
Latin America could revitalize its economy. Well, it could be another
crazy idea, but I've seen our nations follow other models no less
exotic to our culture, including communism.

Time to think now that the Proyecto Bolivariano is dead. Isn't it?

Time to think now that the Proyecto Bolivariano is dead.
Isn't it?
Don't be ridiculous. If you want to be a subject of the King, move to
Madrid.

I just don't see the advantages of neocolonialism over colonialism.
The Americas will create a common market, the greatest in history. It
will span from the Strait of Bering to the Estrecho de Magallanes. We
will kick the assess of Europe and Asia.
That is not colonialism, neither neo- nor paleo-.

Nothing mega is good. Too big and it crumbles.
Indeed - Giga and Tera are much better.

OK, I don't expect our "gringo amigos" to know about this but Simon
Bolivar went around looking for support in England...

"In the end, he wanted to be made dictator for life. Bolivar also
famously denounced the young United States - but pursued alliances
with England, then the world's super power."

http://mikesbogotablog.blogspot.com/2012/07/bolivars-birthday-party.html

Now England is like the 51th State but back then it wasn't. We should
instead seek support in Europe itself. But we will be different, of
course. We don't want to compete with Germany. We refuse. Our GDP will
be measured in H-A-P-I-N-E-S-S, a rare commodity seldom found in
America. You may look for it in Denmark or Costa Rica though, very
small unpretentious countries. Yes, they must be humble --just as
myself, may I say.

Yes, our "gringo amigos" will be welcomed but our rules will be
different. NO GATED COMMUNITIES OR SUVS. Everything nice and safe.
Lots of social places. Just like in Denmark perhaps. Our jungles
though will be our patrimony, a place for worship.

"Yes, we can!"

Better transportation system? Are you kidding? The Brits don't even
know what side of the road to drive on.
Sheesh.
Leftards, batshit crazy and dogshit stupid, every single last one of you.
It's my educated guess that they would have bullet trains run between
NYC, Miami and Los Angeles. They are not super strong like France and
Germany, but at least they are talking about it...

That is why Europe is in worse economic shape than the US - but we are
catching up fast with no help from Spain.
If by catching up you mean back to the old ways, perhaps. Spain has
moved a long way toward bullet trains and other technological and
social transformations.

Well there certainly is no shortage of slavish fucks in this country (The U.S.of A.) who need to have somebody to fucking bow down to. Even the president doesn't seem to know he needn't bow to any man. Bunch of ignorant fucks who, because their 'god thingy' isn't here and now, gotta have Kings, Queens,Lords and Ladies (basically anybody with some bucks) to be lapfuckingdogious to.
Bowing is, in some cases, the cultural equivalent of shaking hands or
doffing one's hat to a lady. It is an antiquated but not necessarily
slavish act.
True. Still, my observations over the years have led me to believe that many,  if not most people in the U.S. have fucking canine 'psyches' and human bodies. Bunch of pathetic bastards. Christians kneeling to their god thingy, their bosses, etc., they should be kicked in the face like the disgusting little fucking mutts that they are and told to go fucking lay down. Or how about the people, thousands of them, brought up in Christians churches who ended up so fucked up that they were chanting: "Praise Jim Jones!" "Praise Jim Jones!" (ever see the original film footage of that, asfuckingtounding.)
I don't think that tendency is exclusive to the USA. It seems rather
common. So much so that I have considerable confidence that there was
at one time an evolutionary advantage for those who were subservient.
I have tried to convince myself, that Obama only bowed to the Saudi king (in such an exaggerated manner) because 'he had to', (which he denied was a bow at all), no doubt about it, he isn't his own man. Surely he should know, in his position, with his experiences and learning better than to do such a thing in such a situation. The King didn't give him so much as a nod. And was probably thinking 'Good boy!' Disgusting to see a U.S. President do something like that.
While I would have preferred it if President Obama hadn't bowed like
he did, I don't consider that act to be anywhere near as fawning and
inappropriate as George W. Bush holding hands and playing kissy face
with a Saudi prince.
I just believe that all men should be considered equal, and though equality is an American ideal it is far from being an American reality, and that most slavish bastards here willfully wallow in their fucking stupidity, and yet are so pig ignorantly prideful so long as they have 'somebody' (the homeless, people on welfare, in jails)to look down on themselves. Stupid bastards no wonder they are so easily lead around by their noses.
If by 'men' you  mean all people, I whole heartedly agree. As for the
rest of you posted, I'll leave it to Winston Churchill to speak for me.
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with
the average voter. - Winston Churchill
"I cannot help fearing that men may reach a point where they look on
every new theory as a danger, every innovation as a toilsome trouble,
every social advance as a first step toward revolution, and that they
may absolutely refuse to move at all."

When you take into account that a large chunk of the population
believes Jesus will come to save the world while denying Climate
Change, you realize "democracy" is in trouble. The people that lies to
them usually get elected.

Hmmm .... leseee .... 3000 miles/150mph tops = over 20 hours NYC -> LA.
Gee, that's a lot better than airplanes ???
I took AMTRAK from Orlando to Richmond. Waited five hours for the train
then it took 13 hours to get to Richmond, several being spent sitting on
sidings. Luckily I had a lunch. Water was $5 per pint bottle, sandwiches
more. I drove next trip. Quicker/cheaper.
"While high-speed trains have been zooming commuters across the
continents of Europe and Asia for decades, the United States has yet
to embrace the idea of the bullet train.

President Obama, in his 2011 State of the Union speech, called for a
high-speed rail system over the next 25 years. However, Mr. Obama’s
proposal to spend $53 billion on high-speed rail over the next six
years hit a roadblock when Congressional Republicans eliminated money
for that plan for the year."

Oh, such a bad idea... It's better to build arenas and dump money down

I happen to agree with this statement:

'It is the wrong type of bike for the "poor" of Venezuela. What is
needed is more of a Breezer approach; commuter bikes, folding bikes,
and folding utility bikes...that would be revolutionary! Not fake
mountain bike-looking objects.'

We can't build a bike without RACK for the revolution. We need them to
be utilitarian machines for the proles.

Well, that sounds bourgeois but I don't like "one bicycle fits all"
like Mao promoted.

Anyone can have the bike they want.

"What if we build bikes for riders who love riding – period?"
I once helped my friend who belonged to an organization that was
collecting bikes to send to South American countries. They wanted any
bikes but the poorly built department store bikes which were not really
serviceable. We took them apart to fit more into the shipping
containers. The group was called "Bikes not Bombs" (it was based in
Berkeley). Eventually the demand for bicycles dried up. Either they all
wanted cars, or something else happened.
Like it says in the quote above they need is commuter bikes with
baskets and racks. People often treat the bike as a toy and within the
South American sub culture --a reflection of American culture-- is
probably the car that people crave for. Venezuela rolls American cars,
big cars, without much respect for traffic laws --not unlike Miami.

Chavez went to Iran to get a bicycle, but he could have gone to Brazil
and get a better deal...

That's a nice bike for the urban jungle.
