Yeah, with the entire US army sitting in Mexico City literally pointing guns at them after defeating the Mexican army. Not quite the same thing as a voluntary sale.
A war Mexico arguably started.

These civilizations most likely conquered the 1st significant civilization in Mexico, the Olmecs. So lets see, If the original habitants of the area we call Mexico are to get paid a "fair" price for their ancestrial lands then we must 1st seperate 90% of Mexicos' population which is Spanish decent and then have THEM pay the decendants of the original indigineous tribes who make up 10% of Mexicos population, the Sapnish decendants can then go back to Spain leaving Mexico to it's original tribes. Those tribes then should all filter the funds back to the decendants of the Olmec civilization.

Oh but wait...Thats way too involved and simply foolish. It's easier to just jump on the band wagon and try to shake down the good Ol' USA for cash and handouts. While the "Mexicans" arguments are just as foolish to many of us it is popular thing to do, and there are many self loathing Americans who reside right here that will help them.

Crazy man!
Yep.

sck5. You amuse me. Going so soon to personal attacks? Your're not playing nice. Bad boy. You try to put to question my educational pedigree? Is that anyway to conduct yourself in a free flowing exchange of ideas? I know, I know, your liberal guidence units programed you to avoid actual issues and go personal, but you should at least try to think and open your mind to a different view or angle (even if you go till it hurts just a little) maybe address people respectfully, you know what? You might discover truth around that sick twisted liberal haze you're trapped in. You may start to feel better about yourself. You might, just maybe...Start to like America! Yes! Maybe even be proud to be an American! You may even find Americas enemies as actual adversaries to confront and not people to grovel and apologize to! I know president "Bow-N-Kiss" does it but he's a clown and he is wrong to do that. Ok, ok, I'm sorry if I scared you, I know it's a little much all at once, but I did type slowly so you could follow along.
It's ok if you need to sit down, you can even meditate. here I'll start you off...Got your sandalwood incense lit...well hurry up! We don't have forever! Ok ready, set, GO!...Obaaamaaaraaaamaaa, ramamamaobamarama, owa, owa, ooowwaaahhh owatafooleyeam! There better now? I thought so.


Here is a visual aid as to what you might want to look out for! Well at least its funny!

Way to go swampcreek!
I agree. I'm Jewish, German, and a few others........those checks should be a better retirement than social security.

By the way, what is the "pirate situation" off the Mexican coast?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The part of that new link that cracked me up was "A damage control campaign is currently under way, led by Los Zetas No. 2, Miguel 'Z-40' Trevino Morales, to identify and eliminate those who engaged the Hartleys without proper authorization," according to the report.

Are they trying to tell us drug gangs feel they have a responsiblity and an image to protect so no one thinks bad of them?...LOL
