Your fantasy sounds an awful lot like the good old fashioned capitalist American Dream, for a commie. :)

It certainly does, and the difficulties of running a restaurant, out the back of nowhere yet full of hungry well-heeled tourists, would require you to exploit the workers with long hours and low wages if it was to make a decent profit. 

And then you would be whining about the amount you pay in taxes, and how little you get for it in services, and how you can never find the time to get away to sail your yacht, and how expensive it is keep it ship-shape because of silly government safety regulations.

My Dad the Pigman opened a Japanese restaurant in Rio after he retired from the bank and ran it for 5 years.  I worked 3 years as sous chef and part-time bartender at Capsuto Freres, the BEST Nouvelle Cuisine restaurant in SoHo in the 1980s-90s.  I have forgotten more about the restaurant bizness than you wil ever know.  Don't tell me what a pain in the ass it is, I been there, done that, own the T-shirt.  Your problem PY is you are consumed by Negative Waves.  A person can't indulge in a little fantasy here on the Diner without you dropping in to piss on the idea, whatever it is.  Take your Negative Waves and stuff them where the SUN☼ don't shine.  You are a Grumpy Old Man sweating your balls off in the Tropical Rainforest.  I can see that would make a person irritable, but you take it too far.  Lighten Up.

Here at DD it is standard practice to piss on RIDICULOUS fantasies, so I do.   You may have forgotten more about the restaurant business than I will ever know, which is nothing, because I hate paying lots for food as if it was all really good food. Far from sweating in the rainforest, I had get the heater out last night as I had got cold in my core and the hot water bottle could fix it. 17C early this morning indoors !!  So you are wrong three ways in that one comment.

It is common for YOU.  You make an art form out of it.  Nobody else takes this to the extremes you do, and nobody does it as constantly as you do.  You just fucking come here to complain about something every day.  It is tiresome.  You make Walter Mathau look like a kindly old man.

17C?  Hahahahahahahahahaha.  That is 63F!  It's a Heat Wave!  Bikini Weather!  You must be joking.  You can't really conside this cold?  ???  :icon_scratch:

This is a DOOM site, not a ridiculous fantasy site.  It has a life of its own, beyond what you want to make of it.  Your annoyance at me politely trashing your fantasies makes YOU the grouchy old man, not me.  Everyone knows I'm right, even you, and it irks you so much that you are about to explode with anger.  Read those last two posts of yours again, and calm down.  I don't expect an apology, though it would be nice.

Yes, I do consider 17C cold, when the temperature here hasn't gone below 22 for six months.  It's called acclimatisation. And it's why you wouldn't consider the summer to be debilitatingly hot once you had acclimatised (takes about a year).

Nor would you likely find 0C very cold after you lived here for a year.  Acclimatizing takes about a year.  Clearly you have not acclimatized well to your environment.  You're grouchy all the time.

Insofar as what this site is about, it's what I say it is.  I own it, I pay for it and I do most of the writing for it.  You want it to be something other than what it is.  I suggest you start your own site that you pay for and write for.

You keep coming along and trolling the site because you are an unhappy man and this is where you like to take out your frustrations.  It's pathetic.  Start your own site.  This one clearly does not live up to your high standards.  ::)

You are very popular.  I suggest you start a WW3 Website to focus on this aspect of collapse and not be bothered by food and boat threads.

Which is perfectly understandable. How could it not?

That goes to exactly what I'm talking about.

It depresses me that no matter how hard I work that I'm always struggling to come up with my silent partner ( Uncle Sam's ) half of the booty. That I'm always one bad year away from bankruptcy. Why shouldn't I be depressed about half my income going to conduit schemes and grifting elites at the top of the food chain?

Is that really grounds for depression? It isn't as though conduit schemes are the only thing our elected representatives steal our money for, someone has to cover the difference between forced contributions and the largess of unemployment comp and disability for obesity and alcoholism, how will we pay for roads if the government can't steal money from the folks that have more of it, the military needs more guns and bombs to make sure consumers can...consume!

Look how great it has worked out in Venezuela!   /s

RE: You're in it to be an annoying troll

That's just not true and you know it.  You ought to seriously consider what this rude and unfair attack on me is doing to the DD audience.  Who would want to take part in the discussion if they are going to be attacked like this and called a troll, just because I would rather have an intelligent discussion on geopolitical issues than have a laugh about your ridiculous fantasies and your endless meals.  Why can't you take a bit of criticism of yourself, because you ARE boring when you bang on about restaurants and huge bricks of meat.  Instead of telling me to not read those threads on this Doom site, why don't you post them to a restaurant site?

 There are many, many more conduit schemes associated with the military budget, the transportation budget, and the social welfare/healthcare budget. It's ALL a fat pork pie to be divided up between the major corporations and their lackeys in DC.

Don't blame what's happening in Venezuela on socialism. I don't like Maduro, and I didn't like Chavez. They are/were corrupt as hell, but the real problem is the decline in oil prices, not socialism.

Venezuela was, for a long, long time, an oil welfare state like Saudi, and in the old days it was the crony capitalists that got the lions share, but with plenty left to trickle down to the lower classes. When PO came along, it hit them like a ton of bricks. Chavez, like Trump, was a symptom and not the real disease.  I wouldn't be surprised to see a military coup at some point, but no matter what happens, their fate is tied to demand for their crude.

This is absolutely the truth. The price of oil, plus wholesale covert ratfucking by the FSoA, as well as "sanctions" of the sort we apply to any government which fails to drop to its knees, part its lips and swallow the company song. See Libya.
