The Good and Bad of Mexico

The Good

The Goldman Prize honors grassroots environmental heroes from the six inhabited continental regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, Islands and Island Nations, North America, and South and Central America. The Prize recognizes individuals for sustained and significant efforts to protect and enhance the natural environment, often at great personal risk.

Jesus Leon Santos a Mixteco from Oaxaca leads an unprecedented land renewal and economic development program that employs ancient indigenous agricultural practices to transform this barren, highly eroded area into rich, arable land. He is the winner of the Goldman Award for 2008.

The Bad

I just finished watching an episode of Judge Judy. Not that it is the most informative or educational show in the world but I find it entertaining that so many idiots would appear before an audience of 10 million persons and show the world how stupid they are.

Today, there were two guys who were suing another girl for some silly business. These two guys work full-time; one is a messenger delivery driver and the other is an all around electrician. The kicker is that both are on "medical marijuana". One for back pain and one for chronic arm pain although both do physical labor. What makes it even more disgusting is that for the audience it's just one big joke. Right, one big joke that is responsible for the deterioration of two nations. Ha ha ha!

That's what's wrong with Mexico. The system in the U.S. allows jokers to use "medical marijuana" and other illegal substances when in reality they are the least likely candidates but know how to massage the system. I stand by my firm conviction that the U.S. is partially responsible for the disaster that is taking place in Mexico. Everytime someone buys illegal drugs they are supporting organized crime and the death of thousands of drug runners, drug soldiers, drug users, drug sellers and those related to all of the above. Is this some kind of conspiracy to reduce the population of the North American continent? Is it a plot between governments and and extraterrestrials? If it isn't any of the above than what other kind of sick society would allow what is happening today; the disintigration of society as we know it.

They executed Saddam Hussien for crimes against humanity when in reality he did things that many governments have done over the ages up and into the recent decades. Yet, what is happening today in the U.S. is a direct threat to the sovereignty of Mexico as a nation. They are responsible for the deaths of thousands of young people who are being recruited to fight in the drug war not to mention the hundreds of police and military that have lost their lives in the battle and all the destroyed lives of drug users and their families in both the U.S. and Mexico.

It is shameful, heartless and disgusting to think that the greatest, richest, most educated country in the world cannot control its population from the use of illegal mind altering substances that affect society as a whole, destroys lives, not only of their own person but those from the bottom up, babies born with addictions to drugs with an array of birth defects.

However, Mexico feels so dependent upon the U.S. that they cannot confront the U.S. and make them clean up their mess. Shame on them. Shame on both of them.


  1. I agree. Bad parenting is all to blame.

    Stupid Puritan value system & as a whole an erosion if the education/culture level of the Masses of USA. If there was a legal avenue for Big Business to Control, notice I did not say end, the drugs in USA the problems of Mexico would improve quickly. Legalize as they did with booze, after the prohibition experiment, tax and we would all be winners. JMHO!
