Ok Rich...definitely off kilter ,but I'd say current affairs and humanitarian crisis ' are at least as relevant as threads about the proper ratio of tuna sandwiches to hand washing stations and condiments...hey it gives the people who do all the of ten unappreciated work a chance to vent and share ideas..thought I was the only person not on Facebook,apparently not..GOOD ...this is my only social media..we used to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time,boating talk and social commentary.

Not dead, just irrelevant! Not enough boating people to make a good profit margin so why develop this group of cheap asses when you can make more money else where with he same effort?? The NRS catalog over time shows the same trend. Sell clothes to girls to make money. Really hard to sell clothes to girls on the buzz.. If you buy from a buzz advertiser, tell them its cuz of the mtn buzz support that you bought.. Just a thought.

Contrary to right wing nonsense ,the majority of the economy is not even under Maduro's control.2/3 of it is still in private hands,including food production and distribution until the opposition started using food shortages they created against Maduro ,in the run up to the elections a couple of years ago.The proof was that the stores were miraculously full soon after and the expiration dates on the products indicated they'd been shelved.Maduro then came up with his own failed food program.His handling of inflation made things worse.His approval rating was down to 17%.It is time for him to go.But we have no right to install Guiado as our puppet.His party only holds something like 14 seats in the Assembly.The right's economic plan was rejected by 61% of the people not long ago and overwhelmingly in multiple elections under Chavez.

Unfortunately,there are not many good guys to support there now.But our excessive meddling,lying,undermining,and outright interventionist imperialism,absolutely does not deserve to be rewarded in any way.I hope the international community intervenes and has early elections with neither Maduro or Guaido on the ballot. Maduro can go into exile somewhere.

No one ever claimed anything Utopian or pure Marxist style socialism,they attempted to emulate Norwegian style use of oil revenues.But as Greg Palast once put it, " it just drives Washington crazy when brown people demand Scandanavian priveleges" and our knee-jerk reaction being something like Pavlov's dogs salivating every time they try to.

Funny Cayo, the above is what you'd call projection! Blame everything on the Capitalist system huh Bernie! Those Central American countries are not capitalist, are you frickin' crazy. Nice barfing up of all the Chomsky lectures you listen to....

True. Mountainbuzz has way hotter broads than Facebook. But now that I dun pleased most of 'em (takemetotheriver is the only one I never got to - she has a fella that could whip my ass!), what's 'ol Grif to do?

Y'all's right. The archive has some good shit. I reckun the new owners are bankin' on that fer web traffic. Wish them bitches would email me so I could buy this dump. I'm thinking about turning it into a wild hog hunting forum called "getchasomedirtypigs.com". Hope the URL ain't taken.

The fact we've been openly discussing a mutiny for 10 days and have not gotten locked, deleted, or a retort from ownership or a Mod gives you the answer to the thread title.

It's the history of Central America that has been whitewashed.You kind of missed the point,VZ is not pure socialism and the examples given may not be pure capitalism there are many factors at play not just generic labeling of economic systems.The fact remains that the examples given are countries where we have intervened,thwarted efforts at socio-economic justice,and imposed allegedly free market solutions.There is no free market all systems have rules.The rules of the capitalistic systems we have imposed are rigged in favor of the oligarchs and multinational corps.,pure and simple.

Projection huh...talk about calling the kettle black ! Hey thanks for comparison to Chomsky,I wish I was half as knowledgeable as him.I guess your heroes are Steven Miller,Alex Jones,Steve Moore ,Bolton,Art Laffer,etc.

Let's go ahead and put both capitalism and socialism on trial.This 2020 elections are going to be a full of debate about the efficacy of both.The supply side branch of capitalism has a horrible record,belongs in the scrap heap of history, shit does not trickle down it gets sucked up.

The northern European model of Democratic Socialism has an excellent record.They routinely outperform us on a wide array of quality of life indexes.Let's not pit fantasy capitalism against the worst examples of socialism/communism.Let's (the U.S. electorate) debate the merits of good models compared to the flawed system we currently have.Let's make capitalism more honest and fair and get over the cold war hangover that precludes anything labeled socialism, like a sensible health care system.The younger generations get it.You clearly don't.If Trump somehow wins again we are totally screwed,you will see the worst capitalistic practices given the green light.

Maybe in an odd way ,the site being neglected by the owners is not so bad.We can make it what we want.They might be receptive to some tech savvy buzzards volunteering to moderate.There used to be mods ..I don't know if they even exist anymore.I think some got fed up and left.More interesting content might increase traffic and spur more reason to improve the site....maybe not if they truly don't care.

cayo 2 I could care less what you think of Venezuela or any other countries from Mexico on down south. I can say that over some 20 years or so, I visited many of them and while they are great kayaking destinations, none of their governments even come close to what the Unites States of America has given it's citizens. By answering your rants, I realize I am giving you incentive to rant again. But, I am sick and tired of people like you running down the USA that has given you the opportunity to enjoy a decent standard of living and the freedom to post what ever to a message board.

For me tho, I read and support this message board for it's boating content. Keep up the open versus pins and clips, cooler tips, groover maintenance and trip reports from rivers run.

Like it mentions else where in this message board take your political rants to the Eddy is what I would like to see you do. I agree, where are the moderators?

Can you right wing morons even follow an arguement? Yeah a redneck's perspective on other countries is well informed.You clowns are the disgrace to this country.You are in for a very rude awakening as the demographic changes you fear so much come to fruition. You can't even base a single argument on facts and vote for abject morons who base policy on Fox news nonsense.Go back to your caves.Utterly brainwashed idiots on steroids....I don't give a flying fuck what some ass backwards repub thinks either .Take your ill informed jingoistic American exceptionalist worldview and shove it up your greedy,lying, racist ass.

You don't get to make up your own "alternative" facts anymore!
