So, why don't they just tear down the sign and make believe that the violence has stopped. I hear that in Juarez they are down to less than 10 killings a day. That's almost on par with chicago.

I did not even need to look this up as I already knew you were way off base. So just to keep the record straight They will end up at about 504 murders in Chicago for 2012 or about 1.4 per day.

Yup, down to a small 10+ per day. I'm not surprised that a moron would be looking up the stats on chicago.

The sign should read, "Come peacefully, leave in pieces".

Funny talking to people out there as they are like, "o ya casi no matan mas que unos cuantos ... Ya tienen dias que no matan, ya se paro la violencia". Don't believe the BS people, the mexican govt has simply ordered the media to stop reporting on the killings. Tourism is gettting killed on the border, although, there are record vacationers. A vacation for the right price is worth all the lead in the world.

I am a facts guy. No motive or other thing went into my post. It is just that I like real figures. To be listened to and want people to believe in what you say, you need to at least be somewhat close in your statements. Otherwise no one will put any credence in what you say.

As an instance a gas station attendant here in Chihuahua last night told me this. I was in Las Vegas and won $3,000 dollars about 10 years ago. I said I am ahead a little more then that but I do not gamble anymore as I do not want to give it back. His next statement was that 3 years ago he won $10,000 in Las Vegas. I think I would have brought up the $10,000 first if I wanted it to sound credible. When I see the guy working again I will try not to get in a conversation with him as I like to hear what is real. Then I will listen to anything he has to say.

The sign at the border should read, "We need more weapons in the hands of good Mexican citizens so we can defend ourselves against the corrupt government and the criminals". Now that is a fact.

As I said I did not have to look it up. I already knew it was not 10 per day. But others may not. I just did it for you in reality since you are like the guy at the gas station.

The violence has killed the tourism on the borders as you say. My friend Chino has a rock and Mineral shop in Santa Eulalia. He used to do well as Americans flocked in to see the famous mining village 4 hours South of the border. He wants it to return. I really do not care one way or the other. I do not depend on my income and livelihood to be derived from tourists. I do want it for him and others however.

The resorts are the last bastion for tourists. If killings start in the tourist areas it will kill all the tourism industry for Mexico. It can happen. The areas you think it would never happen, where the people felt safe, like in Monterrey are succumbing to more violence every week.

I do not believe in the amounts of murders reported in Mexico either. They do not have good record keeping and many are never reported out of fear. I am a white American living here so I actually fight back and report things. That is the way I grew up.

Just recently against a corrupt vialidad that tried to get mordida from me. I filed a complaint at the office and talked to the attorney and the delegate in the office and they saw it my way. If I was a Mexican citizen I probably would not have said anything. Just paid the 50 to 100 pesos ($4 to $8). But being an American they usually want $100 to $200 and try to intimidate you. I do not let that happen anymore.

Facts guy. Chill out a little and stop taking life too seriously. Anyone can google perceived facts. The truth is that we don't know how many people die in mexico per day. Juarez is somewhere less than 10 per day. Chicago is by no means death free. It's been on the news quite a bit. There are many places in the US that are dangerous as well. Phoenix? Newark? And many others. My point was to poke fun at the stupidity that is reported. Not even the people in mexico believe the ridiculous figures. One thing is that they have become accustomed to the deaths and don't care anymore. Desensitized you might say. I personally don't care either. Corruption is the main cause. Drug dealings and lack of weapons is secondary. Or you could say that all of this is because the citizens don't own guns to take care of the drug dealers and their neighborhoods. Many factors involved. NAfTA, poverty, etc.

I don't know who your gas station guy is, but I guarantee you that we can discuss at length. Fire away.

Come in peace and leave in pieces. The head in one bag and the body in another. Boycott mexico completely. Don't risk your life for a little bit of cheap fun. Spend your money here in the USA and keep your head on.

You know what! I agree with everything you said! You took many of the words right out of my mouth. All of Mexico does not really know how many people have been killed. They are turning up mass graves all the time. Like the 300 they recently found in Durango.

I was talking to a girl in Family dollar the other day in El Paso. She said she is grew up and almost all of her family lives in Juarez. I asked her if she ever goes back across to visit family. She says she has not crossed back into Mexico in 10 years. She said 16 members of her family have died in Juarez. She said she just lost the the 16th two days before I met her. It was her Aunt I believe.

I was thinking after. Wow, was her family involved in the drug business or even a few members that caused them to be killed. I was thinking maybe they owned businesses and were being extorted and killed for money. Obviously I did not ask.

I did not know you were being facetious in your post. I just did not want anybody believing that 10 people a day were being killed in Chicago. I do not want anybody reading that from another country and thinking the USA was like Mexico. It is not even close.

As far as I am concerned we are on the same page in our ideas and thoughts.
