Although; the dramatic drop in the Mexican birthrate and Calderon in office does bode well for Mexico's future. What also helped that Lopez Obrador acting like a naco (hillbilly) did not exactly hurt the former rep either.
Every person is a human being, no one is naco or nothing at least in my eyes because we all have souls and we are just occupying a fleshy container that gets old, withers and will have to be forsaken at death with all our earthly possesions, you know in my house we have 2 people who work with us, and we had another maid before Veronica or Verito as we call her, first she cleaned up my grandmother's area of the house (we have a big house with 3 floors where everyone has his "territory" or a floor for himself hehe, here all the family lives together Mexican style ) Verito is a person that I admire because she came to work with us when she was 14 she remained at our home for a long time, she studied english and computer skills (office, windows, etc) and when my grandmother got sick she became her nurse, she left a bit before she died and immigrated legally to the states!!! we still keep in touch, and you know? we kind of grew up together, she was part of the family and still is.

Now Eduardo, Lalito as we call him and Reyna work with us, Lalito is the epitome of loyalty and my parents love him very much because of that, and Reyna comes from an Otomi tribe, she's bilingual as she speaks nau (Otomi's language) and spanish, when she came she was very young and unexperienced but now she cooks awesome food Lalito and Reyna are part of our family as well, you might think that is dysfunctional that families stick together here, but we usually don't leave our parents until we marry, it's the Mexican way, although when I lived in Brazil, my gf lived with me and we rented a nice apartment in a small town 10 minutes from Brasilia called Granja do Torto, awesome place!!!
