Cris Chamorro cheered on the US-backed rightwing coup in Bolivia in 2019, saying it was an "example" for Nicaragua to follow. Maradiaga is a violent, US-paid Aspen Institute asset and fmr. Contra Cruz was getting off a plane from Washington when he was arrested. But "spurious."

I think I see where you're going with this and let me be the first to tell you: don't.
As expected:

"He said he doesn't understand how the homeless are allowed to have dogs and hopes *something is done* to make sure something similar doesn't happen to anyone else." abc7.com/pets-animals/s…
You know who really has it good??? | "I have to register (and) get my dog shots. I have to make sure my dog is healthy and pay for services... but homeless people, they don't have to feed their dogs. They don't have to get their dogs rabies shots. They don't have to do anything."

If you're saying this about fucking Bitcoin (which is being *imposed* by a Constitution-flaunting fascist dictator to please his friends in Miami and in no fucking way emerged as a solution from unbanked Salvadorans), you're absolutely wrong at best and a propagandist at worst.
It's just when "people try to find a way to survive on their own." What "privilege" to object to a scheme hatched at a coke-fueled billionaire party in Miami that is also being used to encourage speculative landgrabs by those same billionaires!
I never heard anyone in line at Western Union say, "what we really need are some techbro billionaire 'disrupters' to corral us into their investment scheme so we can save on fees, but potentially lose half the value of our fixed income at the whims of Elon Musk."

Not once.

It's going to be a glorious day when you dinguses realize what a loathsome shit he has always been...
(I had to look up the etymology of "dingus" to make sure it wasn't some racist, sexist or ableist garbage - although it's Dutch, for "thing," so it probably is?)
