I have had the expirience to work in Mexico and I am saddened that corruption still rules the day in this wonderful country. I know the Mexican people they are decent hard working God fearing people that are just like anyone else, devoted to their family, their God and their country but until they get rid of internal corruption that is tolerated and expected they will be their own worst enemy and are doomed to failure and one day they will be open to hostilities and invasion by a foreign power under the excuse of self protection. Ihope they realize this! May god help them if they dont because its not far off and quite frankly the Mexican people would be better off.

We were wondering what Mexico was doing with all that money we sent them to aid in their "drug war problems". Now we know. NO MORE MONEY TO MEXICO!
We have desperate needs for help on this side of the border.

they are not God fearing people, just the opposiste. they have sold their soles to the devil for money and power. Now they have it and now its time for the devil to collect his soles. what you think the devil would forget his deal with them. Mexicans worship everything but God. they practice santeria, practice ritual killings, practice witchcraft, worship santa muerta and all things non christian. God fearing myASS.

Let me elaborate on my earlier post, in other words on Post # 10.

In regard to my earlier post on organized crime kingpin M. L. "Larry The Liar" Lawrence (Larry "The Liar" Lawrence is what the talk shows were referring to him as when the real and actual truth about his "war hero" activities began to come out), while lower ranking members of such agencies as the Border Patrol and US Customs were well aware that Lawrence was as organized crime connected as could be and also a major trafficker in drugs and undocumented aliens, and still furthermore a major Mafia money launderer, however they were also aware they could not arrest him without being fired, since: one, he was a major source of election campaign contributions and under the table bribes, and therefore as politically connected and politically protected as could be; and two, some of the very highest ranking politicians in such places as San Francisco, San Diego, Sacramento, and Washington DC, and who Lawrence had paid off, were so totally determined to protect him and continue the charade that he was a legitimate businessman and supposedly also a person of the very highest integrity.

In other words, Lawrence was even far sleazier and a far bigger phony than Bernard Madoff.

And then things really reached the heights of absurdity when it was decided that he should become the US Ambassador to Switzerland, and the FBI was therefore given the job of going through the charade of a so called background check, and so that Lawrence could be approved for the national security clearance he needed to become an Ambassador.

However a tiny bit of his lies, phoniness, and sleaziness finally became public when the truth about his "war hero" activities became public, and which therefore resulted in his body being dug up and removed from Arlington National Cemetery.

(Actually, Lawrence never even served in the military.)

NOTE: You can read a tiny bit about him in Wikipedia.

If you are tired of
dumping unaccounted for monies to mexico
having a wide open border
and having a dysfunctional UF FEDERAL government
having the feds take control of our health care
and our congressmen have their cushy tushy life
vote for REAL CHANGE in November
Study and know the options,
the burden is on you the voter to READ, EDUCATE, ASK Questions
even if the congressman refuses to answer,
YOU KNOW WHAT needs doing...
We're on the economic road to hell and only the intelligent voter can change the course of the future

TOTAL INSANITY!

Last week it was a car bombing in Juarez..now this!

The lunatics are truly running the asylum!!!

While our "administration" wastes time and money by insulting and undermining Arizona for at least making an honest effort to stem the tide from coming over their border. When are we going to become part of the solution instead of part of the problem?

And, don't give me that crap about "when we legalize drugs and declare open borders for our poor neighbors".. it's too late for that argument...enough is enough!

What ever happened to common sense?
