I lived outside of Mazatlan 35 years ago and you could bribe your way out of just about anything except murder! As i recall the term was 'mordida' or 'the bite.' If you have money it's a good system. If you don't well then your [email protected]!

As Porfirio Diaz said, "Pity poor Mexico. So far from God, so close to the United States." The ills you see in Mexico are a PRODUCT of centuries of domination by El Collosos del Norte. Mexico has been repeatedly invaded by the United States. But the ignorance reflected in your post reflects a lack of education, reason, and critical thinking, so we can just pity you.

Well, the Incas and Mexica may well have been from separate waves of immigration from Eurasia. In fact, the Olmec/Maya ancestors may have been of a different group, though that is a little less likely. Aaron Burr was the first US leader to propose invasion and anexation. The most recent military invasion was in the 1920s, when we seized Veracruz. But the cultural invasion has been continuous.
I am a bit pendantic; what was it you wished to be enlightened about?

I live in Mexico.....for various reasons ...so know a little about Mexican people....at least my neighbors and people in my barrio....I see that People here are not at all interested in adopting the total way of life known in the usa........Of course they go for work so families can eat and survive.....and , YES , years and years of abuse......abuse by Government, aristocrats, and even God forbid the United states of America......It is pathetic that people flock to work on this side of the border for a few pesos a day in a job provided by companies from the USA who have moved factories here to save a lots of dollars....It must be humbling to see people fight for these jobs....live away from families which are the most important thing in their lives...to earn just enough to buy a few tortillas......

Don't blame US. for your problems. Canada is on our border and they are doing just fine without US involvement. The goverment need stronger police systems and harsher parol violation. Stop letting the police take bribes, go after the moles in the system, stronger Goverment systems that aren't dirty and let the criminals win, who will build roads and better institutions. if you do construction start a committee build better barrios in the area. But Mexico needs to stop blaming the US and start pulling up by thier own bootstrap.
