The average Mexican citizen is peace loving. Sarc/
This didn’t happen! Everyone in the world likes us now because we elected the “messiah”. /s
Don’t they understand that The One is now President? Where is all the love and respect we were going to get?
On average...peace loving!
I’ve asked my friends at NAFBO and they will let us know the details. They’re checking it out.

In the midst of an escalation in drug violence in Mexico, a small explosive device went off outside of a United States consulate in Nuevo Laredo.
Nuevo Laredo, Mexico - On Saturday, United States officials announced that a small blast was reported outside of the U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Lardeo in Mexico, according to Wire Update. There were no reports of injuries or deaths.
The small, improvised device was thrown over the fence of the U.S. Consulate General and went off at approximately 11 p.m. on Friday. The windows were broken but no one was hurt in the incident.
Until further notice, the Consulate General and the Consular Agency in Piedras Negras will be closed, The Consulate General and Consular Agency will reopen when we are confident that we have adequate security to keep our visitors safe, the Consulate said in a statement.
Since 2006, more than 20,000 people have died in the fight against drugs and the cartels, reports the New York Times.
With all due respect, I happen to believe this.
I once met an educated couple from Mexico on a flight, I was conversing with them in Spanish, and had no time communicating (the level of Spanish I speak if generally above the average level of an immigrant and they get confused rather quickly, like an educated person speak to someone who only understand ebonics) which was remarkable to me.
I asked them some questions, and they frowned with distain on the illegal immigrants coming over. To my understanding the summation of the conversation was that those unable to make get an education, make a living, etc. in their own country, generally riff raff, ended up coming over here. I would not necessarily judge the Mexican populace at large by the acts of the most visable, and more than I would just U.S. Citizens, “Americans,” by our current dictatorship and his innercity minions. Sorry to put it that way, but these people are not clear thinking, nor freedom loving.
With respect to both, I blame indoctrination and corruption more than I blame the people, they have been brainwashed since youth, and while I believe enlightening them is possible, it is very very difficult (I come from an innercity, and had to reverse the bias I was taught for over a decade, thank goodness my parents were one old school republican, and one old school democrat, flawed practices, but better than now...to their credit, they seem to be moving right as we speak).
I look to see more riff raff from other countries coming through Mexico, making Mexico look worse. I support reform of LEGAL immigration, building a wall, and shooting illegal invaders on sight, just to make my position clear.
Why would the Minutemen do that??? /s
Until some die, it will never end
The average Mexican citizen is peace loving.
“With all due respect, I happen to believe this.”
And the average muslim is peace loving.
America’s problem is that we’re having to deal with Mexico’s impoverished, diseased, uneducated `riff-raff’ (as you describe them) and Arabia’s assorted religious fanatics still living in the 12th century, while both their “average citizens” `tut-tut’ their countrymen.
Lee Marvin’s comment in `The Dirty Dozen’ comes to my mind for some reason: “Feed the French and shoot the Germans.”
Problem is, thanks to Bush and Obama we’re about to max-out our American Express credit cards.
Caring for Mexico’s welfare class is a good part of the problem.
And the average American isn’t so “peace-loving” as of late. I hope you understand this, even if you don’t believe it.
One o’ them there IEDs?
No big deal. It was just a SMALL BLAST./s
