Mexico being Mexico

The drama continues in south Texas.
Falcon Lake, which used to be a mecca for bass fisherman, is now becoming the scene of an international incident.
A couple from Colorado was jet skiing on that lake- not a smart thing to do. But, then again they were newcomers to the area and may not have known just how dangerous it is.
A while back 5 bass fishermen were approached by a boat with "game wardin" painted on it...warden spelled "w-a-r-d-i-n". They ran away and should have.
Mexico is now being Mexico.
After the woman's husband was allegedly shot my Mexican pirates, there is no trace of the jet ski or the man's body. Mexico says they don't have the money to search. We said we do. But they still won't let us.
Now governor Rick Perry is calling for a tough respond from the U.S.. Which probably means with this group in power, no response.
President of Mexico Felipe Calderon is happy scolding the U.S. in the House chamber because he doesn't like our Arizona law is sitting on his hands and not doing anything. He scolds us, but his country right now is a mess and he can't get it done. But he does find the time to come here and throw himself right in the middle of an American political fight.
Neither Mexico or America can turn their head to this border violence. Something has to be done.
While politicians worry about offending a voting block, innocent Mexicans and Americans are getting killed, or living a life of fear. And living in fear of your life isn't like living at all.
Maybe we can install solar panels for the border patrol. That may get the current administration involved.
