Here is a fun back-and-forth from Facebook:

Post from John T. Reed about politico-cultural differences between Anglos and Latin-Americans written in his brash style. However, the great Simon Bolivar beat him to the post 202 years ago.
No need to get angry but self awareness is the beginning of change.
"The Economist magazine has a Big Mac index for comparing price levels and ascertaining whether a currency is under or over valued. A Disneyland test similarly occurs to me.
You can tell where the nice continents are in the world by where Disney puts its “lands.” There are six: Anaheim, Orlando, Paris, Shanghai, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. Why none in Latin America or Africa? Because those continents suck. There are none in Australia or Antarctica because they don’t have a large enough population.
I have long been intrigued by the existence of two whole continents that stumble incompetently through the centuries. Africa and Latin America are not the same. Africa is endless brutal tribal wars. Latin America never has wars. I think two countries down there now have no militaries. The rest should get rid of them. All they do is suppress their own people.
There is an elephant in the room with regard to Latin America. Tucker Carlson talked about it tonight, but the media and politicians rarely do. The reason we have something like 5 million illegal Latinos in America is Latin America sucks. And why is that? It’s not lack of natural resources or land or bad weather. What is the difference? Latin America is run by Latin Americans; America, by Anglos and various others including some Latinos.
People accuse Trump and others of racism because they want to stop illegal immigration and deport illegals, who are apparently disproportionately Latino. But what strikes me as more racist is people leaving their native land because of who runs it. Trump may want to deport illegals because he is obligated to do so under the Constitution. It’s the law of the land. But I don’t think the Latinos sneaking into the US are looking for colder weather.
Some would say they want jobs. So get a job in Mexico. There aren’t enough there? Whose fault is that? Fix it. What’s different about Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Southern California from the northern states of Mexico? Nothing but the laws and the people. So change the laws. Just copy ours. They are not copyrighted. And to the people down there: Clean up your act.
Stop complaining about racism on the part of Americans when your very presence in America is a far more profound denunciation of the people Latin America." John T. Reed.
