Is Mexico Responsible for Anything?

I have a simple question.

Is Mexico responsible for anything?

Admittedly, it is difficult to lay complete blame for the drug violence on Mexico when we (the U.S. citizenry) are consuming the product of, and we (the U.S. government) are arming, the drug cartels. So let’s be generous and say “we” are responsible for 60% of the problem. Seem reasonable? So why do we only hear about our 60%? What about the other 40%?

(Update the below paragraph with “Caravans heading North”…)

Considering the lines outside emigration services yesterday it struck me that Mexico was doing nothing to help “legitimize” the status of the individuals in line. But to Mexico’s defense even if they had I’m not sure it would have been warmly received.  In fact, several of the “on scene” interviews sounded more like asylum cases in that the individual would run down a list of how inhospitable and outright dangerous Mexico is. The idea of going back, to them, would be cruel and unusual punishment for crime they did not commit.  While I personally enjoy Mexico and find it to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth… I do not necessarily disagree, but it lends to the larger issue.

Is Mexico responsible for anything?  If so, what?

Let’s say Canadians were flooding across the border for reasons of escape… (which in some medically related scenarios is not so far-fetched) would we be so tolerant of the Canadian government as to continuously find ways to blame ourselves? And since we’re on that topic… blame ourselves for what? Is it our fault that we cling to the final visage of Free-Market Capitalism in the world and the prosperity it promulgates, thus creating a more desirable alternative than the place these folks are escaping from?

So why are we quiet in regard to Mexico?

Why exactly is it not Mexico’s responsibility to create that same atmosphere for their citizens?  (The same applies to all Latin American countries given our current predicament.)

Why should Mexico be absolved of the international cry to improve their economy, create jobs and control crime repeatedly leveled at the U.S.?  It’s certainly not a lack of natural resources, ports, or favorable climate… It’s clearly not the lack of population or strong work ethic. So why?

Partly it is a U.S. media predisposed to self loathe U.S. success and prosperity. It simply is not in vogue to appreciate the Capitalist system our country was founded on, assuming they know what that is, or the riches realized from it. The flip side of that is a programmed desire not to criticize Socialist countries, not because it might make the country look bad but because they would have to look in the mirror and re-evaluate their personal beliefs.

The final aspect is Political Correctness and the fear of being labeled racist should anyone step up and offer the truth. They know the first Journalist to speak out loud that ‘Mexico shares the blame for our border problems and must own their economic woes will be labeled a bigot who hates… I don’t even know anymore… Mexicans? Hispanics? Latinos? Mayans? Aztecs? Spaniards? I mean seriously. The world is cosmopolitan. Having a Spanish surname means little here in the U.S. but the census still counts you as Hispanic… Why?  Because that’s how the money is handed out.  Rest assured, someone would be offended somewhere, so you’d be a bigot somehow.
All I’m asking for is reasoned, rational, discussion.

What I’m saying simply is there must be a focus on other countries responsibility when it comes to their citizenry and internal economic problems.

Unfortunately it seems all too easy to blame the U.S. for all the ills in the world, especially by our own journalists. When I say “easy”, I mean both comfortably and safely. They are comfortable because they believe it, and they are safe because they know as long as they blame the U.S. First… there will be no punishment directed at them from the industry of the offended.  The Antifa Fascists will be fine with it, so they know their houses will not be burnt down.

Think about the comments from the EU and how the problems they suffer are always the fault of United States.  The starvation and disease in Africa is our fault.  The illegal immigration problem right here in the U.S. is our fault… because, like every other country in the world including Mexico,  we don’t openly accept just anyone who crosses the border.  It’s stunning how the world expects us to bend in every way imaginable while they conduct themselves in a way of “business as usual”.

It’s also stunning that absolutely no attention is paid to how we became a country that could help those less fortunate on our borders… and around the world.  But here’s a hint… it wasn’t by giving all of our stuff away.

I am a Capitalist.  As such, this is not a cry to seal the borders and not let anyone in, or pull all of our Diplomats home.  On the contrary, I like tall fences and wide gates.  I expect to have access to the best products at the best prices for my self-determined needs.  Having emissaries abroad is important to communicate the benefits of freedom and liberty of the individual as well as aid those who wish to embrace it for themselves in their own countries.

But there needs to be rational and reasonable assessments when determining the foundation of problems lest no solutions can ever be arrived at.

Unless that’s the point.

(A repost from 8/16/12, since illegal immigration is now being used to destroy the Constitution’s Separation of Powers.  It’s dated, but brings up what I believe to be an important question.  What are we saying about Mexico?  Are we delaying a Revolution south of our Border?  If so, to whose benefit?  And if we are delaying a Revolution, is it serving to make Mexico, and Latin America as a whole, more Fragile?)

Ain’t got No Sugar.

(For David… regarding the idea that Socialism, referencing his question of my sanity on Trump’s China Tariffs, requires Capitalism to survive.  While the current topic involves raw materials the concept is the same.  Crappy Communist/Socialist countries require us, and our productivity, to exist.  They are parasitic.  This originally posted in Feb. 2012)

Given the latest comments by European Leaders at the G20 conference regarding their current difficulties having originated in the U.S. and President Obama’s granting amnesty to illegal aliens  with accolades from the Mexican President (because it is a huge subsidy to Mexico through the flow of US Dollars south), I thought it was worth revisiting.

It has been fascinating to watch as Europe melts down.

It illustrates a theory I’ve had for many years which is that socialists survive at the mercy of capitalists in the name of stability. I started thinking about this in the early nineties,  Clinton had just handed, yes handed, Mexico 5 billion dollars.  That was back when 5 billion could buy you something nice.  It was done under the auspices of fighting the war on drugs.  But what it really did was prop up a socialist state.  Who wants a revolution so close to home… right? I don’t mean to pick on Clinton because Reagan and Bush have done it too.

Reagan’s granting amnesty to 13 million illegal immigrants was another way of subsidizing Mexico as it kept the flow of U.S. Dollars heading south into their economy.  (We could see this again…)  George W. did it by making it illegal to purchase prescription medication from Canada.  If that had been made legal it would have been tantamount to declaring war on Canada because it would have destroyed their health system by preventing them from dictating prices they would pay to the drug companies.  To put it in the simplest terms, they get away with dictating prices because you pay more here and subsidize the cost for them.  Feel good about that? We have seen this type of socialist subsidizing for years across every administration.  It is primarily through our military… “You guys in trouble financially?”,  “Let’s have joint maneuvers, or how about we move some more troops in for training exercises…”.  All that means is U.S. Dollars going in to the their not-so-self-sufficient Socialist Paradise.

We have also seen this played out when military contracts are steered to foreign countries for no apparent benefit.  The product isn’t better, but darn it they need the help.  (Bare in mind, I am a capitalist… it is my duty to buy the best product for me at the lowest price.  I have no issue with overseas manufacturing.  Our lack of manufacturing says more about us than them.  That’s for another time.) Well, now things have changed…  we ain’t got no money.

Look at the panic and finger-pointing when the engine of Capitalism, slowly poisoned by Socialists, isn’t healthy enough to ride in and save the Socialist Dream.

If I sound merciless, it’s because I am.  As far as I’m concerned Socialism has been living on borrowed time.  (And it has been our own socialists lending it to them.)  To steal a quote; “The chickenssss have come hoooome to roooost!” Now big daddy ain’t got no sugar…. and you’re on your own.

(An aside:  When are we going to have emergency hearings on “home-grown Socialism”?  Does Homeland Security know about this?  Where’s the Socialist Watch List?  The Socialist No-Fly roster?  Can’t we profile these people?  The destruction to this country and its citizens is profound. Someone should alert the press.)


Beyond Borders

Okay Libertarians… apparently we need to get something straight.

I’m annoyed that I have to talk about this with people whom I consider ideological compatriots. The only thing I can think of is Leftists have invaded the Libertarian Party. Maybe you all should consider some borders?

Anyway… on to what you should already know;

Ideologically, Us Libertarians Love the concept of ‘Open Borders’. Judging by the latest rhetoric from ‘leader’ of the Libertarian Party it appears Libertarians are all in agreement, to a point. It happens to be a very pointy point. A Sharp Pointy, Pointy Point. A Point best not fallen upon.

There can be no Libertarian type ‘Open Borders’ so long as there’s a Welfare State… ‘Safety Net’… or whatever Socialists want to call it to make the redistribution of wealth less offensive. Welcome to the United States of America.

So STFU.

First You permanently get rid of the Welfare State and then, and only then, can we talk about ‘Open Borders’.

Idiots.


You Must be Forced to Care.

(Originally posted 091914.  But now that we’ve graduated from Enterovirus to Measles… decided to revisit.)

There are Diseases in The World which Progressives believe have been left unaddressed by the Major World Powers.

The thinking goes that we, Lazy-Stupid-Spoiled Western Masses, simply don’t care if it doesn’t effect us. You can find evidence of this mindset within the fight against AIDS as well as other life threatening diseases…. Like Ebola.

And certain others such as the Enterovirus.

So how might a World Power (The United States) be motivated to address those sicknesses that have been Intentionally Ignored?

Import them.

Yes, that’s what I said…

Bring them here so We can experience them…  Some of us Die from them…  And All of us Fear them.

The contingency that subscribes to the idea we are ‘all citizens of the world’ is not beyond bringing sickness to our shores if it means we will devote our resources to fighting the illness’ we previously ignored.  In their mind, focusing on our own Problems First, while spending Energy on the Worlds Problems Second, is what makes America Terrible.  And they have anointed themselves ‘Enlightened’ Apostles of all that is Good and Just.  The Ends Justify the Means…

This leaves only one question.

How do you bring them here?

Simple.

Allow hundreds of thousands of people into the country without medical screening… all at once.  (All at once of course can mean over a period of a year or so when it comes to the grand scheme of things.)  Then disperse them at taxpayer expense throughout the country.

‘But this would never happen!’ you say…  I know you… and I know you’re saying it.

Well it’s happening, right now, as I tap this out.

The only real question left to the Left is ‘How do you make these new illnesses spread fast enough to completely refocus the National Energy onto defeating them?’

Make the people you let in be Childrenunaccompanied and unsupervised… then send them all over the country and Force our public school system to absorb Them.

‘But Who, In Their Right Mind, would do this?!’ you ask…  I also know you’re asking that…

Good Question.  Who Would do this?

Because whoever it is, is doing it right now.

And those who enable the doing will tell you it’s only ‘fair’ that we devote our abilities to helping those We chose not to help in the past.  Whether we like the outcome of doing so or not.

It’s for the Greater Good of All the Citizens of the World.

Sleep Well.

 

(Note: What better way to foment a Cry for Government Run Health Care, and Government Force, than a good old-fashioned Pandemic?  When it comes to the life of a child…)


Uh… Que Paso?

“Building a wall between Mexico and the United States is a terrible idea. It is an idea based on ignorance and has no foundation in the reality of North American integration.” – Mexican Finance Minister Luis Videgaray

Regardless of how you feel about Trump, the Wall, Mexico Paying for a Wall, The U.S. Paying for a Wall, Your Aunt Betty Paying for the Wall, etc. etc. There is something extremely interesting about what the current Mexican Socialist Finance Minister has to say here.

Please re-read the words “…the reality of North American integration.”

Really?

I thought that idea was strictly the territory of flag waving, tin foil hat wearing, gun clinging conspiracy theorists.

Apparently I need to add Mexico’s Finance Minister to that list.

Allow me to ask a simple question,

Do you think the Mexican Government would feel the same way, as they seem to feel now, if millions of Americans were flooding into Mexico taking advantage of their social services, such as Welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, Medicare, Subsidized Housing, Schools, Universities, anon, while simultaneously demanding Free-Market Capitalism, a complete re-write of their Constitution defining Inalienable Rights in order to elevate the Individual above the Government, the Right to Vote (even though they do it anyway, they just want to make it official) and Immunity from all or any Immigration laws… all the while, vowing to Never Leave?

We’ve talked in the past about Socialist Countries living on the teat of American Capitalism, with Canada and Mexico being two of the worst offenders.  Both Countries would find it difficult if we didn’t prop them up through accepting their workers, buying their resources, providing favorable trade policies and often direct grants to their countries.

This topic rarely get’s even a mention from our studious media watchdogs… as it should.

Well, in my opinion, it’s time to stop feeding the bears… or Gila Monsters in this specific case.

It’s time to cut off direct subsidies to those who overtly wish to destroy the Greatest Experiment in Self Rule the World has ever known.  It’s time to stop allowing Socialism to survive it’s own oppressive, destructive and deadly nature.  It’s time for a Revolution of Enlightenment Thinking to take place in Mexico.

Viva La Age of Reason!

Sadly however, we no longer know what that means here in the U.S.  So one might ask “How do we promote such a Revolution in Thought on our borders?” The answer is we don’t. Until we get our own affairs in order, there will be no helping those most in need of it.

The Minister’s comments serve to highlight to conflict of visions… and they are also an accurate assessment of what is happening right before our eyes.  Mexico is not becoming a country Governed by Enlightenment Philosophy… it is the United States which is becoming a Socialized Democracy of the likes Marx,  envisioned, save the ridiculous Utopian tripe.

Unfortunately, due to our intellectual apathy and determined disregard for what is the value of American Exceptionalism, we may have already lost the battle to free the world, but more importantly save ourselves.


When they Really, Really, Really, Hate an Inalienable Right… with every Elitist Fiber of Their Being.

If the current Administration is willing to officially orchestrate the sale of weapons to Mexican Drug cartels resulting in the death of several hundred innocent souls south of our border, not to mention our own law enforcement officers, in an attempt to make you outraged enough to demand American Citizens be disarmed…

When they are willing to sell arms to Religious Extremists resulting in the Murder of our Ambassador and subsequent realization that we (The United States) refused to send help, which was available, and might have saved the lives of those in Benghazi…

When your immigration service is prevented from viewing the Social Media sites of non-citizens in order to determine their beliefs and intentions… but Mandates the Complete Collection of every American Citizens entire electronic activity from Facebook, text messages , calls, e-mail and computer search records…

Then is it over the top to think the ridiculously relaxed, or ‘rigorous‘ according to the Administration, vetting process of those who wish to come to this country could also be intentional?

I know what I’m saying… don’t act surprised.

But in case you’re product of public school, as I am, allow me to spell it out.

What if it’s not just new Democrat Voters the Administration wants. Could it be it’s the inherent probability of mass shootings, and other recipes of destruction, by Radical Islamists they are willing to accept in order to push their agenda.

“Never let a tragedy go to waste.” – Rahm Emmanuel – Soon to be former Mayor of Chicago and Advisor to the Stars… I mean Democrat Politicians and Presidents.

Anybody have a better idea?


Does Anyone Listen when Socialists say it Out Loud?

George Soros states National Borders are the Obstacle.

“His (Viktor Orban’s) plan treats the protection of national borders as the objective and the refugees as an obstacle,” Mr Soros added. “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”

(Bold and Italics mine.)

If your desire is not for a One World Overreaching and Nepotistic (Crony Socialist) Government Mr. Soros, then why are National Borders an Obstacle?

Bill Gates defends Climate Change as a Building Block of Socialism.

“Even if you have a new energy source that costs the same as today’s and emits no CO2, it will be uncertain compared with what’s tried-and-true and already operating at unbelievable scale and has gotten through all the regulatory problems.

Without a substantial carbon tax, there’s no incentive for innovators or plant buyers to switch.”

(Bold and Italics mine.)

So… Overreaching and Nepotistic Government (Crony Socialism) creates the ‘regulatory problems’, and Bills Gates calls for More Overreaching and Nepotistic Government (Crony Socialism) as the Solution.  It’s the Arsenic Cure.  Your Doctor prescribes a teaspoon of arsenic a day to cure your headaches.  You return to him complaining you feel even worse… so he tells you to double the dosage.

The Same can be, and has been, said repeatedly regarding Obama Care and the Socialization of Medicine here in the United States. And it’s outcome was predicted by all of those who have witnessed Socialism at work World Over.  It’s an Abortion.  The Left is now preparing to Demand yet More Crony Socialism as the ‘Solution’ in the form of Single Payer.  Some of us said repeatedly the ultimate failure of Obama Care was the desired outcome from the beginning in order to set the stage for full Destruction of the Greatest Private Healthcare System in the World.  I continue to believe the ‘Affordable Care Act’ is failing right on schedule.  Jonathan Gruber and Paul Ryan should be proud.

Rich Leftist Progressives will say, just as all Evil People throughout History, what they want to do to you Out Loud.  They write articles, books, pamphlets.  They give speeches and round tables.  They start Foundations designed to promote their forceful desires.  You don’t need to concoct conspiracies…

All you need to do is listen.  All you need to do is pay attention.  All you need to do is makeaneffort.

Yet, we endlessly find ourselves fighting Useful Idiots on both sides of the political aisle distracting us from addressing the truly Sinister among us.

But I suppose to be truly useful one must never recognize they’re an Idiot.
