LMAO........And, what "Country" are you speaking of, Paisano????


i wouldn't expect someone like you to recognize some of the verbiage, in the USA loyalty oath. it is reserved for military officers and or certain government officials! 


"paisano" is that meant as racial slur?

I'll be interested in seeing if the election / inauguration has any effect on my naturalization process.

I took the exam and satisfied every single requirement on the 5th of June. election is 1st of July. inauguration is 1st of December. Just 4 days short of the 6 months part of the 3 to 6 months processing time I was quoted.

fun stuff.

Mexico has a most unusual primary system, eh? 


And still people will compare the violence in Mexico with New Orleans or Chicago. ;)


How about the number of journalists killed during the campaign? That must be getting up there, too.

I wonder where this blog is getting its facts as I have not heard anything close to this number coming from the news services. 


The narcos are going nuts trying to take over Guzman's buisnesses, so those murders went from a low of 15k to around 29K in 2017, and Cnn counts 40 journalists killed here in the last 22 years.

According to Mexico City-based security consultancy Etellekt, many of the slain candidates were running for local office.

Looks like a security firm was their source of info. I personally have heard about less than 4-5 this year.

steve, vetting  your source, shows me you are a responsible person! thank you!!


in the current times of "fake news" using a "citation" for where you resourced your information gives the reader a better understanding and validity to the post/comment!!


you are to be commended!

Now up to 129 candidates killed. Yes, virtually all are in local elections. Control the government at the local levels, including the local police forces, and you control the means to move drugs north.

I'm sure you've all seen the recent stories of the theft of ballots in Oaxaca and the poll stating that 1/3 of all Mexican voters have been offered something for their vote.

there are 7.6 billion people on the planet, in 1970 there was half 3.7 billion!


the mexican election is this sunday, never in history have so many people been able to vote in any country with democratic elections!


NEVER has there been so much power to influence a particular vote! IE; cell phones, 24 hour multi-channel TV, computers, ect.!!!!!


nothing to distinguish real news from fake news, and knowone taking the time to do so!


this is the world we live in now, we can only hope for the best!

Here is the LATEST source of the story.

Mexico Daily News seems to be an online source that scours the Mexican press, govt records, etc. and writes their own stories in English. But they always give their sources, if it was not completely originated by one of their writers.

Must have been three more since they posted the original story I was alluding to on the 28th. Now up to 132. They are going back to last September; calling that the ".....start of the electoral process."
