Right next door - Mexico - dysfunctional government - could we be next?

There are 12 million illegal Mexicans in the USA.   We know there are 12 million  because these immigrants  entered the USA illegally and we keep an accurate account of illegal entries.  Also, the Republican chicken factories keep an account of their employees ....

Anyway, in Rwanda they had a wild time with genocide, but Rwanda is way over there across the Atlantis divide,  I haven’t seen anyone  with a sharp machete on my block in a few months.  (Sharp?)  Trayvon, you with me on this?

So when a cartel (a cartel?  Huh? Like a monopoly?) chops off the heads, hands and feet of a bunch of 50 folks – link to API in the country right next to me, Well, I see this as a random, vacant, non sequitur.

Everything is healthy where I live. 

No one shoots anyone here. (ie intentionally, directly, while they are compos mentis)

No one gets mugged and machete’d in NEO.

Well, at least, I still have my head, hands, and feet attached. 

Yawn, 

How's the Tribe do'in?  I can't get reception here in the Higbee Casino....too many columns...

Traffic -Cocaine

Here's a link Jeff:

Security analyst Alberto Islas said much of the recent spike in violence was the result of fighting over cocaine supplies from South America between the Zetas and the Sinaloa cartel, led by Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman, Mexico's most wanted man.

Increased pressure on Guzman's operations in Colombia this year had prompted the Sinaloa cartel to buy up a bigger share of cocaine from Peru and Ecuador, squeezing the Zetas' supply and sparking tit-for-tat attacks among the gangs, Islas added.

Jeff--can you explain your reference to the Trayvon killing? Are you implying something about the drug traffic and gangs in Miami?  The gang mentality is certainly mined throughout the United States to further the allure of drug trafficking among teens.  And, the folks "using," don't seem to give a second thought about the origin and industry behind their recreational drug use.

According to testimony in the one trial, Pechanec and Aebly were at the bar celebrating a friend's birthday when Pechanec began discussing purchasing marijuana. Several of the defendants then agreed to sell him some while simultaneously planning to rob him. King was called to come to the bar with his gun to perform the robbery.

Steven Soderbergh's 2000 movie Traffic deserves more recognition on this topic--I don't get your reference to "Mexican illegals." I know you have more of a southern California take on this story.  Can you also explain what you are implying about the folks who cross over the border?
