Via Maggie's Farm, What it takes for an American to get a work permit in Mexico

It was a real adventure and If any of our senators or congressmen went through it once they would have a different attitude toward Mexico.

The Mexican Government uses its vast military and police forces to keep its citizens intimidated and compliant.

They never protest at their White House or government offices but do protest daily in front of the United States Embassy. The US embassy looks like a strongly reinforced fortress and during most protests the Mexican Military surround the block with their men standing shoulder to shoulder in full riot gear to protect the Embassy. These protests are never shown on US or Mexican TV. There is a large public park across the street where they do their protesting. Anything can cause a protest such as proposed law changes in California or Texas.

Though people DID protest the Mexican government in January over gasoline prices. Once you start subsidies, it's hard to stop them.

In related news, in blasting the Republican plan to "dismantle" Obamacare, Kamala Harris accidentally let it slip that 50% of children in California are on Medicaid. California has a higher GDP than the rest of the nation, yet needs federal help for Medicaid? Does this affect plans for secession, or for Sanctuary State status?

42 Instead of this one way immigration thing, we should have an exchange program with Mexico. We should send them Jeb. Liberals think that they can eliminate world poverty by bringing in the world's poor to America. It's equally reasonable to think that we can eliminate it by sending wealthy American families, like the Bushes, to third world nations.

54 Unless things have changed recently, Americans are not allowed to own property in Mexico, and if they decide to live there on a lease, they must return to the US every 6 months to revalidate their visas.

But OUR borders must remain open to any Mexican that wants to com here to live, or we are the bad guys. mmmmhmmm

I've long liked the idea that the US impose the exact same immigration and visitation policies on Mexicans that they impose on us and others. Shoe, meet the other foot.

The globalists jam this crap through, while our well-funded bureaucracy subverts any efforts to forestall the global government plans.

This is Gateway Pundit, which links to the video of how they are inserting the unvetted sick Muslims. (she says there were cases of some vetted refugees which worked out better ... iirc they were the Christian ones that have more valid grounds)

Which is a childhood disorder. Legitimately, there is a direct line between any number of these various childhood disorders, and adult personality disorders, and various anxiety/mood disorders.

This is not a joke. We have tons of these people emerging from the chaos of their childhoods, and as they run away from home (going to college or otherwise seeing themselves as "adults"), the manner in which their disorders manifest themselves are easy explanations for why they take to the streets (and to twitter) and scream their heads off about what YOU all are doing to their worlds.

This is real mental illness.

Actually, it was Communists who got ahold of it.

Same goes for every other good idea in the past 100 years, from treating people of different races equally under the law, to cleaning up polluted rivers. The Communists hijacked those movements and turned them into weapons to attack capitalism and Western Civilization.

On a vaguely related note. After all of the efforts by the Left to insure that NC's tourism would drop, and to make NC suffer financially for their odious stand against men using the girl's room, guess what?

Tourism has increased significantly, and business is great. It seems that all of those who are boycotting NC have actually made it a more attractive place.

A typical Headlines: " HB2 will reduce tourism in NC for years, officials say ..."

"North Carolina transgender bathroom law damaging tourism"

Etc., etc.

The problem? Tourism has increased an unprecedented 3.4%. You know what you won't see? Headlines saying "Bathroom Bill Results in Increased Tourism."

Societally, we have no idea what we're talking about when we address this question of where gay comes from.

Is it genetic? Is it environment? Is it something kids know when they are quite young, or discover as they get older?

Yes, yes, yes, and yes! And NO, hell no, of course not, and what, are you crazy?

It's all of those things, and more!

Seriously, we have no clue, because the person who says they understand sexuality as it pertains to their thoughts and actions, in a straight (pun intended) line from conception to the last sex act of their lives, is just completely silly.

This shit should be illegal.

If there is not a High School Heterosexuals for Anal Club then the whole damn thing is unconstitutional and violates equal protection under the law.

But , you see, non deviant humans understand sex clubs don't belong in schools and don't have time to conduct lawfare because they are busy at work making money to help educate their kids to be decent people.

Yes, yes, yes, and yes! And NO, hell no, of course not, and what, are you crazy?

It's all of those things, and more!

Seriously, we have no clue, because the person who says they understand sexuality as it pertains to their thoughts and actions, in a straight (pun intended) line from conception to the last sex act of their lives, is just completely silly.

Posted by: BurtTC


There is proof that it *cannot* be genetic: there are cases of identical twins (ie. exact same DNA) where one is gay and one is not.

So I would guess that it's the case that genetics can predispose people towards becoming gay under certain cases, as when some people are molested and turn out gay, and some are molested and do not.

Similarly, genetics can predispose you alcoholism, but those genes don't make you drunk.

Dwelling on our past mistakes or misjudgements is a sure prescription for despondency. It is important to look to today, most of all, and to work for a better tomorrow.

One must not allow regret to become the center of their life. It serves no purpose whatsoever and is debilitating. You cannot change the past, but the here and now, and the future are available to you. Focus on them.

Alicia Bowman, a journalist from East Penn, Pa., is racing frantically through a train that is heading the wrong way, flinging off her belongings so she can run faster, calling frantically for her son, who is transgender.

Rachelle Pachtman, who does canine rescue on New York's Upper West Side, is searching fruitlessly through her refrigerator for something to serve Michelle and Barack Obama, who have just happened to drop by for lunch.

And Allison Graham, a Los Angeles publicist, is in a hotel suite near her old Hell's Kitchen neighborhood in Manhattan, being interviewed by Donald Trump for a job as a supervisor on one of his big construction projects.

Psychiatrists throw bipolar as a diagnosis for kids, because there's medicine for that.

However... one school of thought is that bipolar, the REAL organic condition, does NOT manifest itself until early 20s, at the earliest.

So, any child with the diagnosis has been mis-diagnosed.

DBT is the treatment of choice for teens with the various emotional disorders. Works extraordinarily well, when it's applied consistently.

Good luck.

200 Is it genetic? Is it environment?


I suspect it's both, viz., a genetic predisposition to a developmental flaw perhaps starting in utero. For example, it could be unusual sensitivity or lack of sensitivity to testosterone in the placenta, tending to masculinize a female fetus or feminize a male fetus, respectively.

This conjecture would explain several observations, such as why the flaw persists in the population, why lesbians tend to be butch, and why male homosexuals stereotypically are feminine in demeanor and interests.

I don't buy it.

Presuming that you're straight, imagine someone offers you $5,000 if you'll engage in a months-long gay relationship. Romantic dinners, funny movies, long walks, eye gazing, all that stuff. Oh, and also some knob-slobbering or carpet-munching, as the case may be. Would you do it?

I wouldn't, because the thought of it is uncomfortable to repulsive to me. I don't think I could fake it. Even when I was, say 7 years old and had no clue about any of this, I knew that sitting next to a girl was kind of exciting and sitting next to a boy wasn't.

Maybe there's a genetic connection, maybe it's upbringing, maybe it's an underwear ad in the K-mart circular when they were little, but I really don't think that, for the most part, they're faking it.

He'd probably rationalize it in his mind by, "As a person of color, I've been a victim of horrible privation and oppression all of my life. I've paid my dues". There was even a study done years ago that showed that liberals donate much less than conservatives to charitable causes. I'm guessing Obama is no exception.

Never had the 'girls are icky' phase, for whatever reason.

I've hung out with some of the guys from my class who came out after graduating. They said things like going taking to school dances with girls were awkward and they just wanted to leave, which sounds pretty much how I'd feel if I were pressured to go to a dance with a dude in some alternate universe of gaytopia where that was the expected thing. This was in an overwhelmingly Dutch Christian midwest city too, and they weren't rebellious or trying to freak out the squares or whatever.

I don't doubt that some confused kids want to play gay to be rebellious or whatever, just that I'm fairly convinced that a certain number of people are just wired that way, for whatever reason, and pretty much have been all throughout history. And whatever wired them that way wasn't some kind of Manchurian Candidate media blitz.

275 Re: confused teens. The left is so anxious to recruit people to their side that they don't think twice about appealing to people's worst impulses. For teens that means egoism: the desire to rebel against parents, to shock, to think of themselves as wiser than their parents. The left panders to this by advertising homosexuality as "cool". And because they're good salesman, they get teens to pay lip service. But eventually nature asserts itself, and they snap out of it. You can be the best salesman in the world, but if you're selling a sh*t sandwich, eventually people will abandon it.

Same with Hospital Visitation... you cannot keep out someone who had Medical Power of Attorney... its flat out illegal to NOT give them visitation like a family member would have.

Same with Adoption.... same with buying a House...

On and on, everything the Gay community says they want... all the issues, really have little to do with Law or Government... and could be fixed by changing Corporate Policies...

312 Trump Budget Slashes Department Of Labor Funding 20 Percent

well that's a start

Posted by: Nevergiveup


Trump means well, but maybe he needs a continual carrot and rod from voters to continually do the right thing. Democrats have continual motivation for their actions (increased voter base and bribes). Maybe we need to do more to motivate our representatives? And yeah, I'm a hypocrite, I've been lax in that department, as in, I haven't even sent an email to my representatives.

I like to think of government as I think of my plumbing. It just "works" without me having to interfere every 5 minutes. But maybe that's been our mistake all along.

Actually, the dumb shitheads actually believe that something like 90% of the rest of the country is on welfare or that medicaid by itself doesn't really have much of an impact on the calculation. And the ones that don't beleive either of the above, not being thoroughly socialist is actually a 'cost'.

So.... I'm all confused...


He flew, at one point or another:

Some two-seater biplane (before he was a fighter pilot)

Albatros DII biplane

Albatros DIII biplane (In which he made most of the kills credited to him)

Halberstadt DII biplane (when the DIII was going through teething troubles)

Albatros DV biplane (I think, not sure about this one. Short time only if so)

Fokker Dr1 triplane (in which he was shot down)

323 I've heard various things about the paint scheme. The common wisdom is that his whole plane was painted bright red, but I've also read that only the top wing was red.

His whole plane was red. The rest of his squadron had red tails as a unit ID/esprit de corp thing, but each individual had their own unique paint scheme.

Posted by: Ripley at March 18, 2017 02:45 PM (1BQGO)

333 Since we are on the subject of the Red Baron:

He was actually shot down twice, but survived the first one. He left an account of it. He was attacking a flight of FE2d two-seat pusher aircraft, slow and rather obsolete craft by that time, and manned by Royal Flying Corp (the British army airforce) aircrews as green as grass (this was the spring of 1917, Bloody April IIRC). The FEs had formed up in a circle to protect each other's tails, and Richtofen was about 300 yards out, manuevering for position, when one of the inexperienced British gunners opened up from far out of effective range. Richtofen wrote that he was just thinking something to the effect of "you poor so-and-so, wasting your ammo like that," when WHAM, he was suddenly blind, paralyzed, and plummeting earthward. A .303 bullet had clipped his forehead. He managed to recover enough to crash-land, but had a chunk of bone missing from his forehead and was out of action for several months.

The FEs were rescued from the rest of his squadron by the arrive of the Royal Naval Air Service's "black flight" of Sopwith Triplanes, one of the few British aircraft capable of taking on the Albatros DIII on equal terms (and the inspiration for the Fokker Triplane later on...). We actually know the name of the British aircrew that got Richtofen, but I don't remember right now.

I don't belong to a travel organization but thanks for the heads up. I usually don't clash with people on womens ordination because I simply don't argue with them on it and haven't for years. :^) As I am not seeking ordination in churches that don't ordain women, it's not as issue for me. I even have had friendly conservation with my friend the Eastern Orthodox Priest. We just agree it is a complicated matter. The only time I have gotten irritated is when people have told me that I*'m going to hell because I'm "pretending to be a pastor" Now i just laugh and say, " Gotten a promotion? Who gave you the keys to the Kingdom?."
