Want to visit New Mexico?? Do it before January 1st. Then after that expect the storm troopers to pul you over and frisk you and send you to prison. A new, more powerfull, FASCIST government is now in power. BE WARNED!!!

Wow! What a great vacationing hot spot! An American student shot down there..........and the possibility of several Americans in a mass grave in Mexico..........sounds like one "must visit" vacation hot spot for sure! Cannot WAIT to be beat up shot or bludgeoned during my vacation! Fall? Why not any season? Yeah. Why on earth wait until after January 1st? All of that chaos, death and dying down there on the boarder and evidentally beyond..........get in on it now while it's in vogue! Maybe I can even be on tv! I'M not waiting around until January...no way! In fact, I plan to head to my local post office today and initiate my passport process.

The sky is falling, the sky is falling. The liberal corrupt Democrats are voted out of office so the world is coming to an end. Typical liberal thinking.

I'm referring to the other side of the Mexican border. I'd planned to retire to a small village on the coast. The problems are not limited to New Mexico......... I have family members in New Mexico so I'm aware of some of the problems they've seen in that area. These places should not be considered a "vacation hot spot or mecca" for the faint at heart.

Vacation hotspots are what you make of them. No area is perfect. I feel safer in northern New Mexico than any where in New York. Up state New York is kind of pretty though.

There is only one side of the Mexican border. The other side is considered the "U.S. Border" in case you also didn't know that. You are very feeble minded aren't you. What you are saying is that everything and everyone along the border is potentially a walking target to the violence in Mexico, right? So, because of 9/11 all aircraft to New York and the Northeastern part of the country are potentially at risk for another terrorist attack. I am glad I am not so narrow minded as you.

I guess they are a better than another form of antique farm equipment, but the welfare system is being drained with every busload. As a working middle-class taxpayer, it's sometimes disgusting.

New Nexico....it's not New and it's not Mexico.
But considering the number if illegals coming in, it could end up being Mexico very soon.

The tires on your roof have more tread than the ones on your car.
You price-shop for tortillas.
You have an extra freezer just for green chili.
You think a yellow light means to go faster and a red light is merely a suggestion.
You believe that using a turn signal is a sign of weakness.
You don't make eye contact with other drivers because you can't tell how well armed they are just by looking.
You think six tons of crushed rock makes a beautiful front lawn.
You have to sign a waiver to buy hot coffee at a drive-up window.
You ran for state legislature so you can speed legally.

And even more...

You have been on TV more than three times telling about how your neighbor was shot or about your alien abduction.

You can actually hear the Taos hum.

All your out-of-state friends and relatives visit in October.

You know Vegas is a town in the northeastern part of the state and not in Nevada.

You are afraid to drive through Mora and Espanola.

You iron your jeans to 'dress up'.

You don't see anything wrong with drive-up window liquor sales.

Your other vehicle is also a pick-up truck.

Two of your cousins are in Santa Fe, one in the legislature and the other in the state pen.

You know the punch line to at least one Espanola joke.

Your car is missing a fender or bumper.

You have driven to an Indian Casino at 3 AM because you were hungry.

You think the Lobos fight song is 'Louie, Louie'

You're relieved when the pavement ends because the dirt road has fewer pot-holes.

You can correctly pronounce Tesuque, Cerrillos, and Pojoaque

You have been told by at least one out-of-state vendor that they are going to charge you extra for international' shipping.

When you go out of state, people ask you if you have a green card.

You expect to pay more if your house is made of mud and straw.

You can order your Big Mac with green chili.

You see nothing odd when, in the conversations of the people in line around you at the grocery store, every other word of each sentence alternates between Spanish and English.

You associate bridges with mud, not water.

You know you will run into at least 3 cousins whenever you shop at Wal-Mart, Sam's or Home Depot.

Tumbleweeds and various cactus in your yard are not weeds. They are your lawn.

If you travel anywhere, no matter if just to run to the gas station, you must bring along a bottle of water and some moisturizer.
