I have heard many Mexicans complain. They are not on this board. Some do not even speak english (imagine) Anyways, my point being, CEA has to change. They can not remain the same even tho they have tried hard for the 35 years I have been here. They did not pay for much of the infrastructure, they just had it done poorly. We were all accessed a large amount of money to put in the water and sewer, and it was down ALL WRONG. (not my opinion, that came from an engineer who worked in the field in the states, and watched what they actually did here.) One of the major issues I have with Mexico, and the water company in particular, is that there is no accountability. No transparency. Put those two items into the picture, and change would happen rapidly!

WR, you are correct, in that liver lilied, bastion of progressive liberalism (U.S.), they can get away with it. I would not try that here, because I believe in, and respect Mexico, and it's sovereign power. Obviously that is not how the immigrants, legal or not, see it when they migrate north.

I would like some specific examples of Mexican's waving their flag then burning the American one?

I don't respect any sovereign power if it abuses the rights of it's citizens and residents and then destroy's a resource because of ineptitude, corruption, incompetence or a combination of all three.

Ask people in Flint Michigan how they feel about environmental protection. How many years has heavy industry been allowed to dump into rivers and water ways.

Take a look at the dead zone in the Gulf Of Mexico. Ya get those damn progressive liberals off the back of industry and let us get on with business!

WR, i am quite a where of what is going on NOB! that's why i wrote what i wrote! burning flags does not accomplish anything it takes away from the subject and issues!you are the perfect example, you see a news report burning flags and the message or the issue, pass you!what became so ingrained to you was the burning of the flags not the issue, so much you used it here!nothing with ever be accomplished through idiocy and ignorance!

Vince, it was all over the news with cameras at a Trump rally in San Jose. Protesters waving the Mexican flag and burning the American flag.

Some people are paying $3 per month in Guaymas and $20 per month in SC, and lots of people are not paying anything at all. Every time the government has tried to raise rates in the past to do projects, people object, so the govenment tries to keep installing cheap to keep up with a population that is doubling its numbers every 17 years with a 3% positive birth rate.
Sonora recently installed the Novio Dam pipelines 100's of miles to increase supplies, even while old cash cows like Pemex lost money instead of contributing,and huge cutbacks in Federal programs have also been placed. The government is running with deficits, so there is really no money for more improvements without raising rates.
And while I previously stated that its always good to fight the good fight, one must understand that any administration requires adequete funding to maintain, and much more to improve an aging water system.
So calling SC a cash cow for the CEA strikes me pretty funny, and I think that more complaining will fall on deaf ears and make it sound like you are burning Mexican flags and slapping the host that is trying to serve everyone the best they can with the budget they have for peanuts.
