Not just Mexicans but, you, I and everyone else who lives in this country. We should not have to accept such a place. We should strive for change to make this a better place and not make excuses.

Yes, we Americans should. And the Mexicans should go home and try to make their country a better place as well.

What's wrong with the United States? It is the best country in the world by my standards.... If you don't like it then either work hard to change it, or find somewhere else.

There's things that we can work on, as with any nation, but overall it's the best out there in my opinion.

I want to say Black Africa and possibly parts of Asia. In those places; the leisure class is ID'd by having smooth hands, etc.

Too, the drug wars there are becoming worse do in part to drug trafficking being slowed down across the border. Read that the dealers need to offload their dope hence it starting to ruin Mexico. Over 13,000 Mexicans have been murdered thus far by the cartels.[/quote]


How come you "know" so many things that no one else knows...

MY ancestors were simple farmers. Their land was invaded, the invading army took their crops, leaving them to starve to death, forced them to change their language to the invaders language, took all the land from many of them, leaving them with absolutely nothing. They also ended up stuffed into boats, arriving here to face discrimination, made to do the worse and most dangerous types of jobs, for barely subsistent wages.

It was difficult for them also.

But, when I meet people from the country that invaded my ancestors land, and did all of that too them, I'm not carrying a grudge against them - Even though I know that to this day many of the people from that country still look down on us.

I'm not complaining about it...It's pretty much in the past. I'm here and now.

And, there are plenty of others, from other lands, whose parents and grandparents went through hell.

But, they're here and dealing with the now also.

Almost everyone in this country comes from a heritage of starting in this country with absolutely nothing. Nothing at all.

I love Mexico. Why do you say it like it's a negative thing?
The 'read and weep' phrase referred to it being sad that Mexico is showing signs of collapse-----------trust me, I am not gloating over it. I respect those paisas who stay home and try to build up their country vs. being here illegally.
