Jeff Berwick: "Does anyone travel anymore?"Submitted by barracuda_trader on Sat, 03/16/2013 - 05:00
Hello from beautiful Acapulco Bay,
Does anyone travel anymore? Or do they just parrot the propaganda they hear from the mainstream presstitutes about places they've never been??
I'm seriously wondering this today. It started when I read about six people who were shot in a bar in, as usual, the "outskirts" of Cancun. Forgetting for the moment that the guns used were probably directly provided by infamous criminal gun runner Eric Holder and also forgetting for the moment that whatever problem that night was probably a direct result of the US government's heinous war on plants and people-- sorry, the "war on drugs". Putting that aside, I read the article on some mainstream US site and was flabbergasted by the comments. "If you let your kids go to to the cesspool of Mexico for Spring Break, don't expect any sympathy if they get shot!"
Cesspool???? Has anyone ever been to Mexico? I normally reserve the word cesspool for numerous ghettos in the US, like the south side of Chicago, where 10 people are stabbed or shot every weekend. Even in that case, however, I see the real causes of the problem in American ghettoes for what they are: the US welfare state, US taxes and regulations and the Federal Reserve. The real cesspool is in Washington, District of Criminals.
But to call Mexico a cesspool? He must have never been here and just listens to his Homeland State Department travel warnings and his nightly propaganda. In almost anywhere in Mexico that any normal person would be inclined to visit or hang out it is glorious. I often breath a sigh of relief coming back from the USSA and once we touch down in Mexico I usually bow my head to my agnostic god and thank her I am now much freer and safer.
