Bloody Mexico - Narco Blockades

Beheadings and assassinations in general can be tricky business. Part of the game requires that the one chopping the heads off with the machete, escape...to chop another day.

When you are on your Mexican vacation (the antidote for civilization), you may find that the traffic where you are has ground to a halt. Don't worry, it may simply be another one of those pesky "narcobloqueos", as they say in Mexico. It's important for the cartels to prevent access to first responders who might disrupt their plans. Narcoterrorists steal cars from motorists at gunpoint and use those cars - trucks, or busses to bar access to their escape routes.

If you're on a tour bus, don't feel that put out if it's boarded by masked armed men who demand you to hand over your valuables before they douse the seat you were just sitting on with gasoline and then torch the bus. That's simply how it works these days in Bloody Mexico. 

Blockades are both cost effective (since narcoterrorists use stolen vehicles) and they work. I wonder how long it will take for this strategy to catch on in the United States? Oh, don't worry. It can't happen here, the US Department of Homeland Security is on the job. Those are the same folks you see at the airport looking out for your welfare.

Did the mainstream media report any of this? Do you hear about it in the evening news or read about it in your newspapers? Isn't it frigging pathetic that you have to read about it on a blog?

Is the President of the United States doing ANYTHING beyond the 'for show only' measures to secure our Southern Border? I know that the liberal media and the Obama regime doesn't seem to take any of this seriously, but we do put hundreds of millions of dollars into fighting wars ten thousand miles away -- to keep us safe. 

What about the Mexican Border?

Oh, that's right, all those people down there are potentially high propensity Democratic Party voters! Now I get it!!

  1. No wonder people are leaving in droves. Even the criminals feel unsafe.

  2. Wo - A lot of the cartel leaders are relocating to Central and South America for much of the year.

  3. But Janet says that the southern border is safer than ever. She just said so on O'Reilly tonight.

  4. Opus #6 - I want to sell you the Golden Gate Bridge ...

  5. The media only reports the stories that matter, they would never devote unneeded time to trivial issues while something like this is happening. Therefore, you must be mistaken.

    However, I am interested in the bridge. How much are you asking?

  6. Don't forget, a vote for Obama is a vote for amnesty.

  7. Trestin - I need to be paid in gold or silver - and I will need to assay it before I accept it as specie. However, a million dollars should get you the title to the Golden Gate Bridge. Once you own it, you'll have the exclusive right to collect tolls.

    Odie - A vote for Obama represents so many bad things that sadly, amnesty is toward the bottom of the list.

  8. OK, here's my strategy for Mexico. First I'll wait for the French to invade. Then I'll lob, oh, say 110 Tomahawk missiles into the country targeting key cartel encampments of cattle and donkeys. Then I'll lob one more on that restaurant in Hermosillo that gave me diarrhea that one time. Then I'll fly some planes over the country. Then, finally, I'll offer the drug lords food and medical benefits.

    That'll teach 'em.

  9. The French invaded once - in 1864 when the US was busy fighting a civil war/War of Northern Aggression/War of the Rebellion. Napoleon III put His Imperial and Royal Highness Ferdinand Maximilian Joseph, Prince Imperial and Archduke of Austria, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia on the throne. He declared himself Maximilian I of Mexico.

    And what, with their success in Libya, who knows but what the French will revisit their old playbook and take on Mexico once again...with American military support this time to do all the heavy lifting.

    The US could extend the ObamaCare umbrella over all of Mexico because people have the right to ObamaCare irrespective of nationality! Viva Mexico!

  10. Yep, and when the French left, a large shipment of mayonnaise was lost at sea, prompting the memorial celebrations of Sinko de Mayo.

    OK, maybe that didn't happen.

    ¡Viva la revolución! ¡Viva la huelga! ¡Viva paper towels in decorator styles!

    I'm going to go take my meds now....

  11. Little known fact: they don't actually celebrate Sinko de Mayo in Mexico...only in France (and its mostly just an excuse to load up on Grey Pouon).
