No Offence? Best Regards? You have got to be kidding! Rob, please do us all a favour and give this guy the hook!


Why do feel that anyone who disagrees with you should be silenced/banned. Wouldn’t it be better just to explain why you think he is wrong. The US/Canadian border is over twice as long as the US/Mexican border. If the main problem in Mexico is US policy then Canada should be awash in drug cartels, violence, extortion and lawlessness.
I truly hope somehow this situation can be rectified. My wife and myself have been vacationing here for 15 years and these types of events are very disturbing. When we heard the news we were especially saddened because we were in Ixtapa the week before this happened. We stopped at that kiosk and bought a battery powered dragon from this family. The father, mother and the kids were all involved and were laughing, chatting and having a good time. It’s heart breaking to think that their lives could be destroyed by some sick individuals for 400 pesos.

But Canada is mostly Anglo with some French for good measure. All acceptable pigments. Mexico had the good fortune, like Canada, of helping supply the USA with alcohol during Prohibition 1.0, and that wasn’t considered very problematic. We were also able, thanks to our climate, to supply gringos with the cannabis they sought. But when the DEA attacked Mexico’s cannabis industry at the same time it literally handed a few unscrupulous Mexican capos Colombia’s cocaine industry, it created a new beast. The increase in opium addiction thanks to U.S. doctors getting tens of thousands of people addicted to opioids also stimulated Mexico’s opium industry, which is in the process of being replaced by Chinese-manufactured fentanyl. The same people who also supply the USA’s meth heads. The Chinese are using Mexico for geopolitical reasons so that you blame Mexico, not China.

The entire narco problem is a self-inflicted wound by the USA, but it’s prejudice against Latinos is very real.
