Ft Collins, CO –-( Don’t Go!

Mexico is currently, via TV ads, desperately, almost hopelessly, trying to lure skeptical American tourists.

Understandable, since the entire tourist industry south of the border, due to relentless, dramatic, and widespread violence, has all but dried up.

Follow that with the U.S. State Department’s Travel Warning and tourism is way down.

Competing drug-gangs are using high-profile, ghastly, tortuous murders as a kind of “terrorism theater” in order to gain status and intimidate rival gangs, along with citizens , and even police.

The government’s “fight” against them is mostly in vain!

Mexico’s highways are bearing a close resemblance to those depicted in “Mad Max!”

And, Mexico’s immemorial corruption and incompetence, at all levels of government, insures nothing will improve any time soon!

Even well-known tourist areas are blatantly unsafe. Border-towns, which used to be regularly frequented by hoards of American tourists are now virtual ghost-towns. Formally-trendy hotels and restaurants are boarded-up and rotting away!

Residents of CA, AZ, TX, and NM who live near our “border” with Mexico had better be preparing for drug-gang violence- overflowing into the CONUS (continental united states). Drug cartels do not recognize international borders.

Why should they?

“There’s nothing more dangerous than someone who ‘… wants to make the world a better place.’” ~ Banksy

So how do you tell the difference between the cartel & police? The cartel are better shots!

The sounds on the video are the same as what the Las Vegas video were, didn’t see any bump stocks in the Mexican video so it makes me wonder about the Vegas shooting.


What we all realize is that if you defend yourself anywhere, nine times out of ten, you will get blamed and arrested.


It’s a training exercise.

no bullet holes in any vehicles, windshields, buildings. The guy in the empty enclosure is wearing a soccer jersey and has a handgun.


Have to agree, that video’s a little suspect but everything else is true.

Heed the Call-up

mbogo, yes, in the video it stated specifically that it is a training video, but that over 200,000 have been killed or abducted and that shootouts between gangs and police are not unusual.
