Make Love Not War

In one of the United States black budgets funding covert special operations, programs and covert wars and killings, perhaps there should be funds to cover disputes and cost overruns resulting from U S citizens making love to a high class escort(s) or street prostitutes while visiting foreign countries.

Funding such a program might well help to win the hearts and minds of the locals and go a long way toward improving United States international relations.

And, as added value, a bonus, we will be once again able to sleep tight, knowing our Secret Service is awake - in Colombia?

Just google it! xfiltrate

It was ever thus......

Corruption in the '3rd World' - generates so much debate.

Follow The Money.

It'll show that 99%, or maybe 101%, of 'corruption' in '3rd-World countries' is driven from the West.

And as long as the West has the money and power to subvert different cultures, no amount of exposure like this entertaining little news item will ever change it.

For instance, I don't know how Colombian police operate never having travelled there on my own transport, but in similar countries, (oft-mentioned on the HUBB) when western government and ngo officials habitually pay local women for entertainment, little wonder that local policemen expect western travellers to pay them as well for being on the road. And eventually, and sadly, their countrymen too.

That is nothing why not dump items not wanted but still in good shape from the USA on places we want to have wars with?

Just think some al qaeda man sitting in his shack chanting "death to america" and "God is grate" next thing he knows BOOM a crate of porn, fast food, and a lazy boy drops from the sky. You know he will thank the usa for all the items, eat get fat, and be his wifes problem.

Think about it! Less to the landfill, people happy with the USA, people not wanting to go to war, and a 1000 or so of the packs will be less than 1 bomb we use now. it is a win win.


As a person who pays for the wars and killings not to mention all the economic messing about the west dose (much from the UN). It is not the secret service using a high class escort or street prostitute that gets me it is the not paying.

I for one will take on this new job xfiltrate. A goodwill ambassador for the usa. I will use my bike to get around and the USA can pay me to promote goodwill and fealings from the USA I can see this running no more than $1 million cheap by US state department standards. Now how do put this in a grant and pass it off?

Does this mean there are vacancies at the CIA? I wonder how one applies for this exact job?

Gentlemen, of course we are all Goodwill Ambassadors from which ever country we hail as we ride our trusty steeds hither and yon.

Andy, I just spoke with an insider and the Secrete Service/CIA is being inundated with applications. More than one application claims that he/she would never leave a woman wanting more.

DLbiten, it is always a pleasure to hear from you. I was just thinking of you while reading The Economist April 14, 2012 (international edition) Books and Arts section p 75 titled Profile in courage a review of a recent biography of Lillian Hellman, with photo...

Yes, yes we can. Let's just do it. Promoting good feelings is the right thing to do. I am sure we can find funding. I'm on it.

McCrankpin, I have no idea what you are talking about, probably because I am drunk. Did you find your Spanish Duero in your local?

Winning!

I'm glad my application got there OK

I have of course learned a lot since my interview with MI6. When asked hypothetically how one would react to a Russian asking you to be the fifth man, one should not apparently wink at the interviewer and direct her to posts on isanyoneup.com

Andy, that was absolutely brilliant.

If you and I were performing on the garishly lit stage of a gaudy nightclub with a drummer beating out rim shots, 2 older strippers waiting in the wings, and a few drunks in the audience, Benny Hill might start getting nervous.

Actually, we could create a TV series and position it somewhere between Dr. Who and Saturday Night Live (SNL) All we need is DLbiten and McCrankpin,who can provide the drum rolls, I think, and of course the older strippers. The drunk hubbers are already on board.

How to play a rim shot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJbqR...eature=related

Sample rim shot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0PIdWdw15U

Perhaps DLbiten can write reviews, handle the cash and do all the promotion.

How to Approach a Woman

In keeping with Make Love Not War thread

I found 2 informative videos on YouTube, if you are in any way bothered

by hearing the F... word - skip both, but if you are interested in

meeting more woman or thinking about working for the secrete service

please watch and learn.

How To Approach A Woman - YouTube

Or, perhaps you are a woman and need some advice regarding men, highly

doubtful, but just in case, this is for you.

And, here is Percy Sledge singing When A Man Loves a Woman

Oh the cash will be flowing free as we get the cash from the USA. Once word gets out on the goodwill tour we will need no promoting. They will line up! (or running away).

I like BMWs as well but never had that problem for that long. He must REALLY like them, to ride them like that. BA dom tisssshhh. (rim shot)

Topless Ladies and Tango Wind

Still up on the north coast of Spain - beaches are already on the holiday schedule of many Europeans. I could make a fortune selling bikini tops - apparently someone(s) is stealing the bikini tops of many of the very beautiful slender young woman who are now swimming and sunbathing after work and on weekends on the beach under my balcony.

I keep watching, on the beach and from my balcony, this is much worst than the corrupt police on ruta 14 in Argentina. I just can't seem to spot whoever is stealing the bikini tops, but about half the woman are without. I will keep watching. Help!

Here is a Tango Wind I wrote that gave the name to a tango spectacular at Cafe Tortoni , Buenos Aires Enjoy

credits after the music

Tango Wind - YouTube

to all the topless ladies where ever you are

I know this doesn't make much sense, unless you are drinking Spanish wine!

British Beach

Right, have bottles of Ribera del Duero and Rioja here, so it's making sense now.

Nice Tango Wind - reminds me of a winter of tango lessons I took in southern Spain quite a few years ago. What a great time!
Maybe I should sign up at a local class - but it's not without its dangers.
I think I'd need a Limited Liability Partnership......

Anyway, keep watching closely for those thieves. If you find one let us know straightaway.
Because it's even worse not far from here at certain English south coast beaches.
They don't only steal the tops - but the bottoms as well!
What do they do with them? - they must end up for sale on the street markets.

Here's one of the beaches - no clothes at all.......!

Now, you may need a few bottles of Fullers London Pride to make sense of this.

Cheers!

Drinking as fast as I can!

Right... McCrankpin

I am drinking Rioja Bordón a ridiculously inexpensive Spanish wine - maybe

if I tried a more expensive Spanish wine or the Fullers London Pride the

Sanderlings would speak to me.

Do you really think the Sanderlings are taking the bikini tops and bottoms?

Yes, tango would be good.
