Same old problem

I agree we have a chump in the WH. But, the Chump doesn't have an impact on past Mexican history. Nothing here to argue with, as it has been a long-known fact.

As I have stated, the cartels are a part of your local economy and have been for some time. Their near recent (2016) move into the Taxi business via "payolla" shake-down of the local Taxi drivers is evidence of that presence.

I am quite sure the Taxi business is not the only one.

Head up or head in the sand, is your choice.........


Amigo, taxis and other businesses have been getting shaken down here since WAY before 2016. It used to be just the políticos, union leaders and the Tránsitos who shook them down, then the politicians invited in tens of thousands more people to vote for them. But when things really got bad was when the USA stupidly allowed the assault weapons ban to expire. That's when we basically lost our police forces as they quickly became outgunned.

And bums who refuse to do honest work for a living but who have easy access to firearms thanks to absurd U.S. laws fill the vacuum left by the absence of law enforcement. You can call them cartels if you like. I call them bums and cowards with firearms. A cartel is what they have in Culiacán, Sinaloa that chased away the military. The military comes here to Zihuatanejo and "can't find" any cartel except up in the sierra in the Tierra Caliente.
