“I’m terrified,” said Norma Alvarado, a 47-year-old housekeeper who lives two doors down from the apartment. “I’ve lived here for 20 years and I’ve never heard of that (decapitation) happening, and it was so close to us … Maybe they’re copying what’s happening in Mexico.” Here (My Way). They’re pretty sure it’s the Mexican drug cartel; of course, on the brighter side, it could just be the Taliban passing through.

Mexican pirates shoot Grand Banana Republic jet skier in Falcon Lake (wife escapes to safety in” hail of bullets”– here). Don’t worry, the GBR government has a solution: Don’t jet ski there.

This is truly funny. Mexico, sick and tired of illegal immigrants pouring through its southern border, is now building a big bad fence. By the way, the main stream media elite have buried this story (but it’s still out there: thank Zeus we’re living in the digital age of info). Here.
“ “Yeah? I wanna go to talk to this fuckin’ guy.’” I grabbed a pen and … notebook and jumped out of the Jeep. As I closed the 30 meters between us, I caught the rancher’s attention. He stiffened back on his horse, pulled his hat off his head, closed it to his heart…That arm suddenly appeared to be ordering me out as I closed the last few steps and he first spoke to me, ‘I’m sorry, but I have to ask you to leave, because they’re watching us right now, and they will kill me…’ ” Read full account here (Big Peace)

“…The enemy uses every terror means at their disposal: beheadings, dismemberment, feeding live captured prisoners to lions, slowly lowering live victims into tanker trucks filled with acid and worse. These tactics are extremely effective. There are no rules in this war. The targeted kidnapping of children and family members is now Standard Operating Procedure. The enemy has even twisted religion into a cult membership tailored to its warriors and assassins…” Here.

“…in Mexico, illegal immigrants receive terrible treatment from corrupt Mexican authorities, say people involved in the system. And Mexico has a law that is no different from Arizona’s that empowers local police to check the immigration documents of people suspected of not being in the country legally. “There (in the United States), they’ll deport you,” Hector Vázquez, an illegal immigrant from Honduras, said as he rested in a makeshift camp with other migrants under a highway bridge in Tultitlán. “In Mexico they’ll probably let you go, but they’ll beat you up and steal everything you’ve got first.” Read the rest of this article here…
MEANWHILE, back at the ranch, pardner… “Last winter,” says Terrie, “as we walked the hills looking for quail with our dogs, I kept thinking, ‘What if we come upon a drug encampment? What’s going to happen to us?’ I carry a camera, my husband carries a 12-gauge for quail, and we have four hunting dogs. It’d be the end of us. It’d be no contest against drug runners carrying rifles and big weapons.” Here.

Just in case you’re thick a Youtube commenter expertly explains the donkey part (very well put, I might add): “This plays on differences between men and women about what they are looking for in sexual relations. A man wants pleasure, a woman wants emotional support. So, the punch line of the joke is a “sex worker” who deals with men’s needs all day wants the animal–a fixture in raunchy sex shows because it has a big “member”–to give emotional support. It is cliche that many women just want to be held, but typically not the “sex worker” women. That is … the punch line of the joke.”

We’ve all read of the horrible drug war being fought in Mexico. The tally of the daily murdred probably exceeds that of Afghanistan. Fortunately Mexican police have a new weapon in their war on these murderous cartels: Chicken blood and tattoos.
“…slaughtering chickens on full moon nights on beaches, smearing police with the blood and using prayers to evoke spirits to guard them as drug cartels battle over smuggling routes into California. Other police in the city of Tijuana, across the border from San Diego, tattoo their bodies with Voodoo symbols, believing they can repel bullets. ‘Sometimes a man needs another type of faith,’ said former Tijuana policeman Marcos, who left the city force a year ago after surviving a drug gang attack. ‘I was saved when they killed two of my mates. I know why I didn’t die.’ ” Here.

“Viva Mexico! Never mind the H1N1 or La Familia Michoacana. There’s more to Mexico than swine flu and drug trafficking, though I never realized it until I traveled to Mexico City for my cousin’s wedding last weekend. Obviously it is hard to ignore the poverty and corruption, especially when cops jack your wallet on the way down to Baja…For one reason or another, Mexican culture has long been in my psyche. Like any good American, I’ve eaten a taco and have a story to tell about the time I drank too much tequila. Actually, I have more than one story. I love tequila. It turns me into a loud mouth vandal. But my previous experiences in Cancun, Acapulco, and Tijuana only confirmed my image of a half-baked nation of paupers without enough salt in their baby food. After 10 years in California, I can say many Mexicans are gentle, humble, and hardworking. But hell, what’s wrong with their country? So many of them are risking their lives to cross the border. Could it have something to do with the fact that every time you brush your teeth you’re glued to the can for 48 hours?” Here.

Yes, as if out of a sketch from SNL–or better yet, from MAD Magazine–we have those funny people in Mexico, especially in the state of Sonora, where they are being overrun by–Mexicans; that is to say, Mexicans that were illegal aliens in the U.S. and are now returning in droves to their home towns because of America’s economic downturn and increased crackdown on employers hiring the undocumented.
“…It seems that many illegal immigrants from Mexico are returning to their hometowns, and the officials in the Sonora state government are ticked off about it. A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson recently to say Arizona’s new employer sanctions law will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state. At a news conference the legislators said Sonora, Arizona’s southern neighbor comprised mostly of small towns, cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools it will face as Mexican workers here return to their country without jobs or money…” Read rest here.

“There’s a peaceful aura about the lifeless faces lined up on the video, death having drained the tension from their cheeks, their eyes wide shut above thick moustaches and square jaws. But as the shot pans out, the horror of their end is revealed: The dead men’s heads have been roughly hacked away from their torsos, which the camera finds hanging upside down across the room on meat hooks, their blood draining away onto white floor tiles…Decapitations have become as commonplace in the increasingly vicious narco turf battles as stabbings are in London. During August alone, gangsters hacked off 30 craniums across the country — adding to the total of almost 200 beheadings in 2008 so far. Heads have been stuck on crosses, shoved into iceboxes and left in car trunks along with snakes… ” Continue reading Time article.

Brown Pride relates that that “racism in Mexico, both against blacks and dark-skinned indigenous Indians, has a long history. Mexico’s colonial past has left its mark on modern-day society. Prejudice toward “pureblood” Indians from those who are “mixed-blood” (Spanish and Indian) is rife. Almost uniformly, people who are darker-skinned and of Indian descent make up the peasantry and working classes, while lighter-skinned, Spanish-descent Mexicans are in the ruling elite. Fox himself comes from that background, as his appearance makes evident. This inequality may explain in part why the majority of immigrants coming into the United States fall into the darker-skinned category. Beyond the failure of the Mexican government to sustain a decent economy, darker-skinned Mexicans have a difficult time getting work because of job discrimination.”
And here’s an account–evidently quite typical– by Anthony DePalma, from Mexico Honors Indians of the Past? (this account is from ’04, but the situation is unchanged): “Shrouded in mystery and myth, the heroes of Mexico’s Aztec past are honoured in glorious monuments all over the country… But the living descendants of Montezuma are not allowed to eat in some of Mexico City’s best restaurants. Although all Mexicans are considered equal under the country’s constitution, Mexican society remains deeply divided on racial lines.”
This is another observation from the Dallas Morning News: “…Foreigners in Mexico City who look at Mexican television—or movies or magazines or anything with human faces on it—could be excused for thinking they had landed in a European city. Officially, Mexico’s population is mestizaje—a mixture of White and Indian, or mestizos. But the country’s political, business, social and cultural elite is dominated by White descendants of Spanish conquistadors, while mixed-race, indigenous and Black people generally are relegated to supporting roles in society. Mexico has taken major steps toward democracy but lags significantly on civil rights, analysts say. The nation, they say, harbors racism and is years away from addressing it because few in positions of power understand or even acknowledge the situation, and many of those affected by it have long accepted the status quo…”
There are numerous other articles and stories about White Mexico trying to achieve a racial state by encouraging a huge portion of its population to move north across the border. I wonder how all these pro-illegal alien groups would explain their collusion in that?
