¡COMO MEXICO NO HAY DOS! The "Real Mexico" from transvestite wrestlers to machete-wielding naked farmers. History, culture, politics, economics, news and the general weirdness that usually floats down from the north.

Horns of a dilemmarichmx2

Having recently returned from a long hospital stay, and having had to receive medication that included controlled doses of opium… it still strikes me as odd that an opium producing nation like Mexico has to import medical opium from the few nations (mostly former British colonies) allowed by international treaty to produce opium medications.

I broke my leg last week, and have been in hospital.  Leaving tomorrow.  Although financial and other concerns someathing of an overwhelming issue, in talking about my own brush with Mexican medical care snd emergency services,  I’ll try to stick to the historical trands and the “big pictute” rather than dwell too much on what […](image)

Monsanto out for good? Mayberichmx2

Sun, 14 May 2017 23:24:30 +0000

Via Regeneration, May 11, 2017. –   In an ongoing case, the Mexican Supreme Court (SCJN) has refused to accept an amparo (injunction) from the lower courts which sought to allow Monsanto to market transgenic maize, initially halted in 2013. In moving forward, a decision regarding the issue will be based on an earlier civil […](image)

Thanks to Fidel Rodriguez for this: I’m thinking of moving back to where I’m from. Before I moved to this small ciudad, I should’ve taken precautions and done some research because I had no idea that it was this bad. Today, I decided to write this because I just want to give others an unbiased […](image)

42 percent of Mexicans live below the poverty line (defined as less than 5 US$ per day).  In the State of Yucatan, that percentage is 49%…. which  at least it’s less than half. So, what better place to find rich hippies and foodies from around the world flying in to spend 600 US$ (plus tax […](image)

“Three times is enemy action!”richmx2

“Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action!”  Or so said one of the great all-time super-villains, Aurich Goldfinger.  While by no means is Andres Manuel López Obrador a saint, nor does he head a party of saints (they, are, after all, politicians), despite what has been written and said about him […](image)

Maybe Marine training isn’t so bad in Mexico. The Mexican Navy has set up a breeding and training center for Belgian Malinois in the Valle de Bravo, to develop recruits in the war on smuggling. But, these Marines look more ready for snuggling: Filed under: Uncategorized(image)

Number two with only some bulletsrichmx2

Mexico is the second largest military power … in Latin America. Which is rather misleading, given that by its population (122.7 million), it has one of the smaller militaries in the world — 270,000 on active duty, and 76,000 reservists. The 2016 defense budget was 7 thousand million (US 7 billion) dollars. Although only number […](image)

I feel kinda weird translating this into English, given the topic, but its one I have seldom seen openly discussed by Mexicans themselves. Rodolfo Higareda, in today’s La Razón: With the dollar going through the roof and Donald Trump infesting our social networks, Mexicans have opted to travel within the country. In fact, it has […](image)
