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 peas in Peru, I am certain I do not know.

You really buy into the myth that we are "free" in this country? Compared to where? North Korea? Syria? Iran? I could name an easy dozen countries off the top of my head where its citizens are freer--and happier--than we are here. But that's all right. You keep on believing. True Believers are just what the government ordered.

As for Johnny U.S. Vet, god bless, but that was his choice. And if he really fought to defend my right to rent an import, then that was one stupid choice on his part.

        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
