@Paddypereira Well, the accents are common in all countries, in some countries they are the result of some isolation -sometimes geographical and sometime because distance...and in other countries could be because the proximity with other nations (Gallego and Portuguese / Brazilian Portuguese and Northern Argentinian Spanish. I love the impact of Geography on the languages. I hope the other members are enjoying as well. :)

@Paddypereira 1. I know very well where Dublin is...in fact, is Ireland's capital. 2. I should have realized you are Portuguese since your name spelling is "Pereira" and no Pereyra. 3. No, Spanish and Portuguese are not "that " similar ....both languages are easier to learn (by a native of the other one) but the pronunciation and grammar -like with Italian- are not that similar. I am from South America so is easier for me to understand a Brasilian than a Portuguese person.
WHAT'S YOUR POSITION ON ABORTION ?
Quarm comments on Oct 18, 2018:
I see abortion as a option. Not a good one but a needed one for an imperfect world. First of all since I am not a woman I feel some limitation on my position. I think for practical reasons very late term abortions save in the case of a threat to the mothers life should be illegal. Besides that I...

The same day I became an USA Citizen I registered to vote....as a republican. The Democratic Party -at least to me- is pure populism.
DUCHESSA replies on Oct 12, 2018:
@jorj Every president is populist during the campaign; the problem becomes heavy depending on which one are the populist ideas. To say "We will get rid of the illegals. /Those receiving assistance from the government will not have it so easy any longer..." are populist ideas / actions that any normal person will accept. Now, if the government increases the number of people in assistance, gives the criminals more rights than it gives to decent citizens...we are talking a different kind of populism. You have to know this by experience.

@bigpawbullets He married your daughter and that gave him the RIGHT TO APPLY FOR PERMANENT STATUS (obtaining the GC) and, eventually, the right to apply for Citizenship. Indeed, after 10 years he had to renew the GC. I don't understand why he didn't....unless, of course, he believed he had a GC and it really was a working permit. See, many immigrants think that marrying a USA Citizens makes them AUTOMATICALLY permanent residents...even Citizens. The truth is these two statuses must be applied for by the immigrant / granted by the authorities.

@bigpawbullets The Green Card holders are not here at our request. I know this issue very well; they are people who came legally and became "permanent residents (this is a different subject) and have all the rights (except the right to vote) of the Citizens. My ideas derive from a mix of experiences in USA and in my other country as well as from years of teaching. If we are going to mention sources mine would be Horace Mann, Domingo F. Sarmiento, Albert Shankler, my students, colleagues, people who didn't get an education but with overflowing common sense... growing up under a very different set of rules.

While most of these repulsive pedophilia acts took place before Pope Francis's tenure...I can't understand why he doesn't place the priests accused in the hands of the justice. Bergoglio, I don't respect you as a priest / pope because I don't care for religion...and as an Argentinean I feel ...

@educatedredneck It all depends of who is talking; for the rest of the world a person who was born in Mexico, Perú, Guyana, Brazil, Costa Rica....is American....Is the same concept that engulfs an Spaniard, Italian, Irish, French, British...as European

DUCHESSA replies on Sep 15, 2018:
@snytiger6 We can fight ignorance -even win the battle- if we are referring to reading, writing... but when it comes to concepts as the one discussed in this thread we will never succeed over ignorance; culturally (traditions / legends . myths...) are a lot more powerful than any / all reasoning.

There are Americans of Guyana ancestry. Now, if you talk about geography...Guyana is part of one of the three Americas (North, South and Central). BTW, most countries don't "divide" the American continent in three parts.

@mosuper Good point: As long as he resides in the main land for the required time by law he can vote; there are Puertorricans who live four months in PR and the rest of the year in the mainland.. Your case is different...your residence is in the mainland.........you probably can vote by absentee ballot..

Most of them are not required to pay federal income tax on personal income like Americans residing in the States even though self employed people in the states also fail to pay their fair share but that's besides the point

They will if PR becomes a state.
When are people going to stop subsidizing child rape? Close them down!
DenoPenno comments on Sep 14, 2018:
I agree but the Catholic Church is one of the strongest organizations on earth. You cannot shut them down. The best you can do is keep telling the truth about them. Child rape is only one aspect about them. Praying people out of purgatory and similar acts is how they got filthy rich over the years. ...
DUCHESSA replies on Sep 14, 2018:
Well, IMHO the Catholic church is shutting itself down; you and I may not see it happening but I doubt this institution would last another 50 years. I wish I had insult the Bergoglio (Pope) when I used to see him -50 years ago- playing soccer in my town's beach

DenoPenno comments on Sep 14, 2018:
We all know better. Deep down even his supporters know he is lying on this. Trump still believes that if you say something 3 times everyone will believe it. He says that in his book "The Art of the Steal." He should get "tremendously wet."

You will be surprised how many of Trump supporters -myself included- are upset about the way he handled the devastation caused by Maria.

There are only 22 territories. Additionally, they are as much US Natural Born Citizens as any other....the difference rests on the fact they can't vote in Presidential elections unless they reside on the mainland.

I think there’s quite a bit of difference in past immigrants and today’s. Most of the today’s immigrants we have in Oklahoma are Hispanic. Most of them I know are very hard working and speak pretty good English. I had a Hispanic man who worked for me here on my cattle ranch for 28 years and he...

I toured the HUGE memorial and tomb of Che' outside Havana 3 years ago. Pretty much a Founding Father memorial there. Heavily guarded by a Cuban version of our "Old Guard". No talking! No pictures inside! Every country has it's own version of history and the myths of their Founding Fathers.
DUCHESSA replies on Sep 4, 2018:
@bigpawbullets I asked because in order to understand how a nation feels about a given person...specially a pig like the Che...one needs to manage the land's language back and forth.

I have to admit I was one of those teens who had subtle admiration for Che Guevara. I had watched the film Motorcycle Diaries and hadn't read about his background in depth. Do young people a favor and question them about the "leaders" they look up to.

The only good thing about that movie is the sound track by Gustavo Santaolalla...also Argentinean.

1) Ernesto "Che" Guevara Lynch was not Cuban but Argentinean....and a member of one of the riches families (landowners) of Argentina.. 2) He was a SOB and this was / is told by those who were unlucky enough to cross his path. 3) Castro order his murder when the Che not longer served Castro's goals. 4. El Che is an insult to Argentina.

@Trajan61 The schools in NYC -all- have metal detectors, security guards on each floor and police officers...also on each floor....but even if these security measures weren't available I doubt very much we would have mass shootings because the bullying is dealt -by the students- in a different way.
