The Mexican government is pissed at the Brits for a party of their navy divers getting stuck in a Mexican cave. The group is being detained while visas are being sorted out.
Doesn't this smack of one of those monster movies where some agency (usually working for a government) has created a monster (half man -half shark, half man-half wolf, whatever) that escapes and starts to eat the hapless villagers. And a secret team is sent out to rerieve it. in fact, this sounds so much like Arnold's Predator movie.
Kind of funny that the Navy group got stuck due to water. If anybody could dive in those pools, a seal-type team should.

CoolCaddy, you are in sensitive territory. Especially in an election year.
I do feel your pain since I watch the local Spanish channels of which my wife (Hispanic) interprets. Bustamante (spell?) runs for governor but belongs to a society whose tenet is to return California and New Mexico to Mexico?I Forget the young Hispanic candidate (Rosario) who was chastised by the Spanish press because she was running for office and stated "I'm an American first!". Funny what does not reach the newspapers and tv (ABC, NBC, CBS)news.

There is an arguement that must be brought up. Fighting persecution, Pilgrims, Quakers, Hugenotts, Irish, Poles, etc.. left their homeland for here. But what is not said is that by the 2nd generation, they assimilated into society. and, especially with the first group, they did not have a welfare program to fall upon. In fact, after the 2nd boatload of ******, the Natives were more than willing to split their skulls and burn their boats. And their reasons were justified.

Bottomline, the California programs are going to crash (if not already).

AND WHO THE F--- IS VICENTE FOX THAT HE SHOULD DEMAND ANYTHING FROM THE UNITED STATES? 100 MILLION US DOLLARS PER YEAR BEING SENT TO MEXICO BY THESE HARD WORKING PEOPLE, IS PROPPING UP HIS GOVERNMENT. This is probably the most irksome part. But, then again, Bush is courting the Hispanic vote and this is an election year.

I'm still waiting for the fruits of NAFTA for the Mexican working people. Better environment, cleaner rivers, ...All the promises that were made when the money started to flow into the country.

It is an issue that must be dealt with since it is the silent majority that takes the financial hit for such programs. A loud few start to control the issues. It is one thing to turn your shoulder to suffering but another to be taking advantage of.
And it is worse when the media plays yellow journalism- not reporting on these issues.
A fellow named Oberweis came in 2nd in the Illinois primary for senator and was chastised by the media because he dared to discuss illegal immigration. A local newspaper headlined how a woman stopped her milk (Oberwies owned Oberweis Dairy) subscription. Fine-some housewife who doesn't care about the real issues (and it is her privilege to act as such). But it is taboo to discuss anything related to what this country is going to do with the massive debt, terrible trade balance and illegal immigration.

Politicians receive a pension after serving 2 (maybe 1) term. Maybe this should be repealed since they are shooting to get re-elected once to fulfill the pension requirements.
