Snopes.com Stopping Nuts From Talking
I feel surrounded sometimes by superstitious, primitive tribesmen, ambiguous humans who do not reproduce because so confused, yet trying to rule the planet. Absolute confusion reins on the planet because everyone in the developed countries thinks they are smart enough to put on their pants and talk.

I wish to thank Snopes.com; I think this site places a hit on people who spread rumors and gossips, this site destroys myths and urban legends and the people who repeat nonsense.

I continuously try to find the essential truths as I travel the planet, the piles of crap ideas that are being collected are incredible. The amount of stray comments that have no relevance, off-topic, nothing to do with the solution or problems is running rampant.

This problem is not new, however it is incredible how many people who should never open their mouths truly believe they are smart and need to be heard. The world believes everyone is worthy of listening too, every person should have the right to be heard.

Experts are treated like idiots, and idiots are treated like experts.

Then…. If the expert agrees with the idiots, he become famous and is interviewed on CNN… The Comedy News Network, where fantasy portrayed as fact, just to sell advertising.

Thanks Snopes.com your site continuously comes up in my search for the real facts on issues, trying to shut the mouth of the people who need to get out of the genetic pool.

Get yourself a blog, incredible the amount of irrelevant, off-topic, not part of any solution comments are made, the mind of man is becoming and irrelevant instrument of only used for to criticize and disagree, not genuine help, just asinine childish comments.

Myanmar the Asian Cruelty

Myanmar the Asian Cruelty
Common to be called Burma, the country to the West of Thailand has experienced a cyclone, a natural disaster. The world is begging permission to enter.

I listen as one of the Talking Heads explains the lack of sensitivity of leaders of this country.

However, what is more tragic is the USA and European inability to see the rest of the world does not value life, and must be stopped in a civilized world, if that is what we are.

I realized one day, the Vietnam leaders felt nothing in allowing their people to die, while the American and European place too much value on the life of a human.

The Arabic world cares nothing if their people die; it is as if a King is sentencing cows to the slaughter.

Africa, Central America, South America, the horrendous callous nature of a Mexican.

I feel incredible anger and frustration at the new global world, which fails to see the world for what it truly is, a cruel and barbarous place where the leaders allow their people to die without a whimper or sad eye, the incredible cruelty of Asia is baffling.

The leader that stand up and want to stop the Sadaam’s, the killers of people, people who kill without remorse become the enemy, and the enemies become the heroes.

Take a slow look at Myanmar right now; ask yourself what type of person would refuse to help their people, this inhuman Hitler like cruelness is still thriving.

It is crueler to stop a person like President Bush who wants to stop Sadaam; this is the new cruel and crazy world we live in where the bleeding hearts try to save leaders like the one in Myanmar. Now our wanna to be elected leaders want to be cruel, allow evil to thrive, to not fight back, to just keep our own safe, leave Iraq, to answer the spoiled American complaints aobut the increase in Gas Prices, and not go fight to stop the cruel natures, to fight the good fight.

I remember going to Tibet, thinking, that Dailai Lama had to be the cruelest person on the planet, to make other worship him. What is he angry about, the Chinese remove him from the position of God.

Cuba would be one the richest countries in the North America if Castro would have never lived.

Learning Spanish is Not 1 or 0

Learning Spanish is Not 1 or 0
A baby says its first word, saying Mama or Papa and the whole family celebrates. Then quickly adds many words to the child repertoire of words.

I truly wish adults were smarter than babies.

A baby does not try to learn a language, does not sign up for a language school, does not need smacked in the head.
- Stop speaking baby talk. -
(I want to smack adults, Stop speaking English)

A baby tries to copy Mom and Dad, Sister and Brothers and everyone corrects the baby. There is not a problem, the baby just mimics the sounds until it learns to pronounce words.
- Adults will not mimic and prove the baby is smarter. -
(They do not want to look stupid, and prove themselves stupid.)

I do not learn language fast, however, I do speak Spanish, French and English rather well, in fact very good.

I find learning a language easier now, I more or less act like a baby, I repeat the word to the person using the word I need to learn, the person corrects me until I can repeat Mama, or Papa correctly. When, I see the person again, I try to repeat the word for their approval.

In the end I try to tell people who want to learn Spanish, and I say,
“Stop speaking English.”

Stop speaking baby talk, English is of no value, it sounds like Baby talk to the Spanish speaking people, they think you sound stupid.

When I am in the USA and a Mexican person speaks Spanish, I tell them.
“Speak English.”

On the other hand, I do tell the owners of hotels here in Guatemala that want English clients, hey.
“Speak English.”

When I hear conversations in both Spanish and English I play a game, I ask myself,
“Who is the student?”

The one that demands to use their own language is the teacher, the one who learns a new word is the student.

Simple to learn a language, stop talking the old language, use the one everyone else is talking than try to think.
“Hmm. I only know five words, I am more stupid than a one year old child.”

People ask me how my Spanish is, and I say,
“I have lived over five years in a Spanish speaking countries, I am a five year old.”

My 60 year old friend Chris ask me,
“Which country should I go to study Spanish?”

I wanted to say El Salvador or Colombia, and they go to a small village with nobody in the village that speaks English.

Learning a language is not fun, it is a lot of work.

In the end, I think he needs to find him a nice Guapa Senorita that does not speak a word of English and refuses to speak word of English under an condition… maybe he will become a student. I hope he realizes one day this is excellent advice...

Spanish is not an on or off, not a 1 or 0, it is maybe you want to learn Spanish, or maybe you do not, it is always a maybe, it only is a 1 when you have nobody who speak English around you.

Learning Spanish is Not 1 or 0

What does this Pakistan Man Want?
There is more to HoboTraveler.com than just a blog and me gossiping about countries on the planet. Daily we get 50-100 submission on the site, I must moderate, delete, and sometimes I read and try to understand.

Please go to this link; try to read what this Pakistan man or somebody has written about corruption in Pakistan. I have read now three times, his English is the India style backward thing.

USA Can Handles Obama or Hillary

USA Can Handles Obama or Hillary
In a world, continuously teaching doomsday and crisis, there is one thing I am 100 percent positive, The USA is grand enough, magnanimous enough, and the country is ready for Obama, or Hillary to be President, the most powerful person on the planet.

We can handle it, survive it, and even thrive as a nation, even if it was the worst possible event in the history of our country. We will survive, we are Americans.

During World War II, we carried on the WORLD War on the whole planet and prevailed, this mosquito size war in Iraq is nothing.

I feel a shame when I feel real anger in people over Obama, as if somehow a Black President would destroy the country. It is not possible, a Black President is just a different Channel, the People of the USA run the country, he has to know he report to the people, not the black people, not to the white people, but to the USA people. This white or black people... this is too childish.

I fear both Obama or Hillary, I do think the power has gone to their heads, they want to be ruler of the planet so bad, they would sell out the Iraqi people, the world, and the right thing, this is the problem, yet, this is what politicians do, the suck up to win. I do know that both can lose their job is they abuse the power, hell; President Bill Clinton almost lost his Presidency for having a girl friend and lying.

In the rest of the world rulers of countries rape their countries and do not lose their job, our President almost lost his jobs for lying. This explains the USA so well...

I continually say, if President Bush lied, he would have lost his Job; Clinton lied over his ugly fat girlfriend and was close to being impeached.

There is no crisis on this planet, except for the lack of good judgment that exists because of the Fourth Estate.

I think we should put the worst Candidate in office, nothing will change, and the USA will just continue to be a stable Republic.

I feel glad for Obama, this man is the biggest man in the Hood, they will never have a good excuse to use the Race Card again. I want this card removed from the deck, they really have no right to complain, the blacks of the USA have a great life, and Obama is proving it.

I think we should elect Obama, maybe the worst possible leader for the USA, but will for sure show the rest of the World that President Bush was in President during a difficult time.

USA Can Handles Obama or Hillary
