A wise man once said that those who can't remember the past are the same people who are forced to remember it later. Speaking for myself I don't like being forced to do anything. And I don't rent cars. And I don't buy foreign cars. I also spend a lot of my time down around the border and anytime you want to, especially round the smuggler's hour, you can see Pedro and his kids humping the canyon looking for the land of golden opportunity and a little something called freedom. And I will tell you what you Don't see. You don't seen Johnny Vet worming his way down to Mexico. No you don't, do You? Because Johnny Vet had to fight his way out of Afghanistan defending your right to rent a import.

    Yes, let us learn from the past: sooner or later, walls crumble. They also aren't built for free, or paid for with other than the tax dollars of American citizens, Catholics and Masons alike. In any... more

        Speaking for myself, I don't mind being forced to do anything. Depends on what I am being forced to do, and what the payoff is. I do buy foreign cars, although what that has to do with the price of... more

          You saying people are happier in North Korea? You think people are happy in Vietnam? Or red China? Or them people living in filth and dirt and in their own human waste in Brazil? If Pepita and Selena ... more

            why did they come to Mexico? Because that's what Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, California and a lot of other real estate was before it was taken away.

              Why did they go to Mexico? Not for the water. Drugs, I guess. Screw them. But Let's get to the point. I feel for you, Joey Garza. Once the Southwest belonged to somebody else other than the folks you ... more

                Lot of wisdom there, Bullwhip, but the question is why. Why would Mexico do "nothing," as you correctly point out it has done nothing "all along." And the answer is that what lies behind the... more

                  Don't hold Mexico resonsible for its corruption and its inability to keep Jose and Lupe home where they should be. I ain't too happy about the fat whore in Rome myself, but he ain't the coyote you... more

                    Don't know why I bother. I'm talking 16th, 17th, 18th century Mexican cultural history--about which you clearly know nada--as the underlying cause of what you have today, PRIOR to dope, prior to... more

                      between the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries so far Mexico goes? They don't even know what century they're in now. Not even beloved Jesus can help Mexico now. You can take your basic broken down,... more

            No, I'm not saying that. You, in your drunken stupor are saying that. Hopeless, utterly hopeless. You're even drunker than the other guy. Go back and read what I posted and I try to understand what... more

                Problem is, you're NOT free--anyone who is really free wouldn't run on so defensively ad nauseum about being free the way you do, which is to say meaninglessly--but are too damn dim-witted to realize ... more

                    Irony and nuance is not your forte, is it? And what exactly is it that you have against women of a certain age? Someone has Mommy issues maybe? That said, I agree that only a slave would embrace his... more
