Have you ever been to somewhere in Mexico outside the border zone??

Would you be scared to visit Disney land because Compton, Ca is only one hour away???

I live in Puerto Vallarta Mexico and we have 500k people here in the bay……
As of today not one Murder, kidnapping, rape or other violent crime………
How many cities in the USA with a 500k population can say that??

I moved from Northern California in a town 0f 5k people and they have more crime than we have here???

My two children and their friends (the oldest is 8 years) are two block from the house riding bikes……..They would not do that in california……….

One question for you…….

Why is every single person that is on the Forbes top 25 richest people in the world investing here in Puerto Vallarta??

The closest I would get to Mexico would be to stand on the border and piss over it into Mexico. I might even squat over the border and take a dump in Mexico.

NY…..It is nice……….I was there for the dropping of the ball for 2000…….
We bought the rooms a year in advance and still only could get one tiny view of the square from the room……..

I have spent almost a year in Jamaica much dirtier and 100 times more dangerous..
My wife will not go back now that we have kids………..

Keep your snow buddy…….Not for me…..
Last year we did stay a week in Banff for heli skiing.

What I don’t understand is that you would go to Jamaica but not Puerto Vallarta??

Is it that you are sick of the criminal invaders that flood the streets of the USA??........I am……….

How many 56,000 sq foot house do you see in NY???

Why did Rush sell his house in NY and build a big one here?

Maybe you just think Mexico is the old man with a donkey and a cactus???

Not the Mexico we live in……..

There are safe places in Mexico just as there are safe places in the U.S. Those safe places share at least two commonalities.

The first is law enforcement who is both willing and able to control the criminal elements. The second is that enough citizens in those places work towards keeping their neighborhoods safe up to and including defending their homes and their neighbors using whatever means are necessary.

Want Mexican drug cartels to loose much of their power? Control our southern border. Make it much harder for them to get the drugs that fund their wars here in the first place. And in stead of focusing on prosecuting the small-time user, instead focus on getting the king-pins. Make big-time drug pushers start to fear losing their freedom and if necessary force them to fear for their very lives.

When the Mexican national government does what is necessary to win their war on the cartels then living in Mexico will once again be safer. But that will probably only be able to happen after the U.S. seals our border... taking away the funds necessary for the cartels to continue their wars.

You are only seeing the criminals………….

The courts give them a choice…..
Stay here in jail or go to the USA and send money back home………

Pretty smart if ya think about it……Instead of spending money to keep people in jail they send money back home…..

Pretty dumb on the USA for letting it happen………….LOL

You will not be seeing many Mexicans return home now.

Most of the Mexicans that could return did in 2009 and 2010.

What are left are the ones that have planted roots in the USA and now have families and friends and are part of the society

The majority of what is left in the US can’t return to Mexico as they are wanted criminals.

There we go again, blaming it all on the Americans. I for one do not use drugs, nor do the majority of Americans. It's that percentage of idiots that do, and the lack of enforcement of our borders that allows these drugs to get here in the first place. Secure the border, lock it down and see how many idiots will be able to get their drugs.
