just look around within the last yr or so, Hummers, lux. cars and trucks and way better attire and tresses, both male and female. I guess it's keeping with the Hernandez', both here and Juarez. Mas all those babies born to men and women who can't afford them: babies = money and cash transactions = qualifications for credit cards. Must be nice to debt and not worry about a credit score affecting and effecting your future to buy a house, etc...nice not to give a chit. Once in the hole, hard to get out of; bankrupcy comes next; then fixing your score or using an alias to mess up someone elses credit. For those in the hole due to medical, unemployment, etc... I empathize with you, for all the others who do the above...u/c/k off.

People learned from business how easy it was to file bankruptcy and continue on.

If you look at all of the bars/restaurants/clubs they are always full, how do they pay the bill credit card. They live in a charge now pay later mode. El Paso loves to drink, you think.

Financial industries are deceptive and predatory.

Even the El Paso Employees Credit Union ,who got a new CEO and board members , are getting deceptive by NONDISCLOSURE or notices for the last year if you bounce a check.

They refuse to give you the CEO's number but you'll get some insults and condecending comments ( if you dispute their refusal to send you written notice when you bounce a check and when they collect their fees) from the VP or other up the chain of command line people because they refuse to send you notice but demand you pay their fees.

If you ask for the number of the people or board members who decided to quit sending written notices , the VP will refuse to give you the CEO's number and say "if he feels like it " he may or may not call you back because he's busy.

Vic Kolnec should write a story on deceptive business policies banks, credit unions or other financial institutions adopt esp with the history of bank fraud and predatory fees.

And cheating banks get $700 billion bailouts like welfare thanks to crooks like Bush all the while talking down to customers and blaming customers for the banks greed and over paid managers.

I was in El Chuco yesterday and when I got home, I noticed my VISA and Amer. Express cards were missing.

If anyone out there finds them(my last stop was at El Tacotote picking up 3 dozen tacos for MY supper), PLEASE return them and you will be rewarded very generously!

Deceptive - The big banks have paid back all bailout money and paid the govt. dividends on top of it, however Obama motors(GM)still owes the taxpayers billions and continues to not fund it's pension obligations. Any other brilliant remarks?

Banks are still being shut down for their greed and risk. NOT ALL banks have paid back everything. Some banks who weren't bankrupt were taking bailout money so there wouldn't be a stigma. Hank Paulson and Bush were throwing money at them and all they do is throw executive parties and give out outrageous bonuses to CEO's

Get a clue.

I'm surprised El Paso is not first in this category. Notice the top five cities are all controlled by liberal voters.

With an over 80 percent mexicant population what else would we expect. This trend will follow the country if we don't stop the flow of mexicants.

Stop the flow? Surely, you jest!
From all indicators(including your stats), that is not likely to happen.... that window closed long ago.

The only real difference now is, the mexicants are here, still coming and have NO fear.
The anglocants are possessed by deathly fear, paranoia, etc. which, in the end will prove more damaging than any immigrant, legal or illegal could EVER be!

Do a little historical research on ALL collapsed cultures ..... and confirm your worst nightmares.
