Dominica Republic In One Side and Out the Other

One of the relaxing things about living in under-developed countries like the Dominican Republic is ideas enter their brains, exit and are never seen again. Is the DR Developed? The DR is definitely higher economically than other countries, but mentally about the same as Haiti.

Thoughts enter, there is no stop, they just do a fly over, and no residual short or long-term memory connects…. (Not that simple, but that is the feeling.) Any commitment I make is forgotten immediately, unless it concerns money, then they never forget.

I have for years tried to make appointments stick in Latino brains, I gave up about eight years ago, and accepted it is not possible to induce them to remember. Once in awhile, my acceptance comes out of remission and I get frustrated.

Standing in line, making commitments, remembering appointments in my mind is both a Moral obligation, coupled with a sense of justice. It does not matter whether your believe in the good Gods, it still is intellectually a good idea to follow the Golden Rule.

“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
Luke 6:31 Christian Bible

Nature Question
Does this have something to do with the Land Pirates from Spain who are the ancestors of these people. I mean, the USA was more or less settle by British, Holland, and Germans, while Central and South America was more French and Spanish.

Fun stuff, and one of the reasons some countries are poor, there is no way to have a contract, just goes in the one door and out the other. I am having prolems with appointments, I am saying Manana more than before, I am becoming a World Citizen.
