#1 Mexico = failed state.
Why the hell is anyone more concerned with Syria than with the failed state on our southern border?
Does this make any f---ing sense?

Our political class and our media elites are deranged fools.

#2 Agreed Alex. The ambush referenced in the article occurred in the state of Michoacan, just north of the state of Guerrero. When viewed in addition to the battle in Culiacan in the State of Sinaloa, which the local cartel won, the whole Pacific coast of Mexico is in chaos.

#4 high-caliber weapons like the AK-47 assault rifle.

Ahhh, more ballistic buffoonery. An AK-47 round is one step up from a pistol. Gotta keep pumpin' those memes.

#5 the whole Pacific coast of Mexico is in chaos.

As are the southeastern border states adjoining Guatemala. Basically everywhere outside of the center, Monterrey and the colonial heartland are in a shambles.

#6 Your screen name....just thought I'd ask ?

"Lexophile" describes those that have a love for words, such as "you can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish", "To write with a broken pencil is pointless."

An annual competition is held by the New York Times to see who can create the best original lexophile.

This year's submissions:

I changed my iPod's name to Titanic. It's syncing now.

England has no kidney bank, but it does have a Liverpool.

Haunted French pancakes give me the crepes.

This girl today said she recognized me from the Vegetarians Club, but I'd swear I've never met herbivore.

I know a guy who's addicted to drinking brake fluid, but he says he can stop any time.

A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.

When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A.

I got some batteries that were given out free of charge.

A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail.

A will is a dead giveaway.

With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.

Police were summoned to a daycare center where a three-year-old was resisting a rest.

Did you hear about the fellow whose entire left side was cut off? He's all right now.

A bicycle can't stand alone; it's just two tired.

The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine last week is now fully recovered.

He had a photographic memory but it was never fully developed.

When she saw her first strands of gray hair she thought she'd dye.

Acupuncture is a jab well done. That's the point of it.

I didn't like my beard at first. Then it grew on me.

Did you hear about the crossed-eyed teacher who lost her job because she couldn't control her pupils?

When you get a bladder infection, urine trouble.

When chemists die, they barium.

I stayed up all night to see where the sun went, and then it dawned on me.

I'm reading a book about anti-gravity. I just can't put it down.

#11 50 round of bullet is like a king's ransom worth of ammo in Bangla.

#15 #9 Trump has it right Lex

Agreed, Chris. Lost in all the noise & shitstorm is the origin of Trump's rise in 2016: he focused on one issue that the uniparty was/is desperate to ignore, i.e. the complete and utter wreckage that is our Mexico policy.

True to form, he zeroed in on the most vivid, immediate, relatable facet of this debacle - the illegal immigration Shitshow and related Orwellian nonsense about "sanctuary cities" -- but he has ever since focused on the substantive, underlying issue. Mexico is a shitty failed state whose elites are as cowardly as they are corrupt and cynical.

They more than anyone we are the blame for 20+ million desperate Mexican peasants being pushed out of Mexico by lack of opportunity and massive corruption into America, here to generate hard currency, send it back to Mexico, and keep the regime's economy afloat.

Trump called the Mexican elite - and the Uniparty elite i.e. the Koch-head open borders GOP/libertarian fools + the Dem grifters - on their BS. And now it's getting results.
