¡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.

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

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 05:06:32 +0000

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)

My town… love it or leave it, but it’s NOT Berlinrichmx2

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 02:49:20 +0000

To compare this reality to a city like Berlin, where most people have pensions, a good standard of living, quality state-run healthcare, and decent wages is the height of egregiousness. It makes you wonder exactly how tone-deaf the writers of pieces like this can be. Have they ever dared venture outside the Roma-Condesa bubble? How […](image)

Mexico, siempre fiel? Sex and religion.richmx2

Sat, 15 Apr 2017 06:28:30 +0000

John Paul II may have thought Mexico was the most Catholic of Catholc countries, though I’ve always said that Mexico is Catholic, the same way France is — we pay no attention to the Bishops, especially when it comes to sex. So, perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise to me that the Encuesta Nacional de Creencias […](image)

You think music videos were invented by MTV?  Think again… Prado Perez was doing them back in 1950:  From Del Can-Can de Mambo (1951).  Filed under: Music, Prado Perez(image)

Slouching towards AMLOrichmx2

Wed, 12 Apr 2017 06:10:53 +0000

Whether for conviction or because they have been rejected by other political parties, more and more politicans are joining Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s (AMLO) National Regeneration Movement (Morena). While Mexfiles thinks the “anti-American” label is misplaced, with prominent party members of AMLO’s former left-wing party, PRD, and from the conservative, traditionally Catholic and pro-US, PAN […](image)

In response to the claims by General John Kelly and Senator John McCain (who according to the left is echoing the “party line” of Margarita Zavala — the leading candidate for nomination by PAN) — that “If the election in Mexico were tomorrow, a leftist anti-American would probably be obtained as President of Mexico. That can […](image)

While most of US Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly’s testimony before the Senate Homeland Security Committee dealt with the nuts and bolts of the (unbuildable, as he acknowledged) wall of shame, and with spinning the lower rates of immigration as a result of the Trump Administration’s so-far mostly rhetoricial iniatives there was this statement, not […](image)

This claim is lame about the reign of Spainrichmx2

Wed, 05 Apr 2017 05:58:49 +0000

Via Chilanguia (my translation): President of the Spanish public television and radio corporation RTVE, Jose Antonio Sánchez, said that regretting the destruction of the Aztec empire during Spanish conquest is like regretting at the defeat of the Nazis in World War II. In an event organized by Casa América in Madrid,  Sánchez focused on what […](image)

When Nafta closes a door…richmx2

Wed, 05 Apr 2017 04:41:30 +0000

One of the biggest complaints about NAFTA way back when it was a pup was that it was pushed through (both here and in the US… don’t know about Canada) with a lot of discussion in the media, but no real knowledge of what was in the treaty itself.  It had been negotiated behind closed […](image)
