    It was astounding to me. If a Mexican parent can beat his kid, and the kid can endure that, what is the big deal if child protection agencies separates them from that same parent ? Why does everyone suppose these kids should to be reunited with their parents? Perhaps its better if they didn't?

    I will in time Mike got to get settled first
    The culture here is quite different. It's a matter of, if we, as Americans, want Latinos sneaking in or deterring them from violating our borders.

    I met a fellow at the funeral of his sister. He told us he lived in Mexico and was here only for the funeral and would be going back next day. He said he moved there with $150,000 cash and a $2,500 a month pension, which he said buys him a luxurious lifestyle.

    It all sounded very good but some people tend to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. That was about fifteen years ago. Would you say what this fellow told us was true? Is it safe for Americans to move to Mexico? I wouldn't think so, but what do I know.

    It's epidemic. AMLO, whom I disliked, is the least corrupt by Mexican standards and he's... well I'll leave it at that. Im impressed by his cabinet choices and demeanor with Trump in the immediate.

    I reckon that's a good thing. Apparently I have accepted you enough for you to meet the unofficial USMB mascot.

    I still have my humor, honor, and self respect. To me that's what counts.
