  1. Peso on the Move ... Where's It Headed ?

    In the past the most calamitous drops have been followed by a short and slight rebound, which was probably why you were advised to buy at 22/1.
  2. Peso on the Move ... Where's It Headed ?

    Down, as it has done since 1976. The dollar itself is down at the moment against other major currencies, which conceals some of the peso's slide.
  3. MX Peso fell below 18 to 1 usd

    The peso has charted a sawtooth downward curve against the dollar since about 1976 and I think it is a safe prediction it will continue that way over the long term.
  4. The more usual situation in Mexico is that there are "aviadores" who appear on the payroll but not on the job, only landing to collect their pay.
  5. Nacimiento natural

    If that is the context then it indeed means that the parents were not married. I'm surprised that nearly all births were so listed, though.
  6. cost of living

    Euro coins and banknotes did not go into circulation in Spain until that date but Spain was effectively on the euro since several years earlier. The peseta had been frozen in relation to other euro zone currencies, and all prices were shown in both pesetas and euros.
  7. Big police action (maybe)?

    http://semanariolaguna.com/26048/ At about 4:00pm there was a confrontation between armed subjects and members of the Regional "Fuerza Única" police unit at Kilometer 5 on the highway to Jocotepec. A Tundra pickup was seized there and reportedly five persons were shot down. Apparently the armed civilians opened fire on the Fuerza Única officers. First reports are that the operation by Fuerza Única was begun due to the disappearance yesterday of a state policeman who worked at Casa Jalisco, the residence of Governor Aristóteles Sandoval. According to early reports, in the confrontation in the Delegation of El Molino at least two people fled on a motorcycle and personnel from the State Prosecutor's Office deployed a search operation in the area. After the clash the Prosecutor's Office seized a pickup, a shoulder weapon, five short weapons and two grenades, the newspaper El Informador reported. According to the police officer who was interviewed, Jocotopec Municipal Police did not take part in the confrontation between the gunmen and Fuerza Única because when they arrived at the scene of the shootout they were prohibited from entering. Five people died in that confrontation. According to sources in the State Prosecutor's Office, the state policeman was last seen leaving his home in the community of Huejotitán, Jocotepec and was found dead in the vicinity of where the shootout occurred, reported Notisistema. The young man on the motorcycle has still not been located. It is not known if the two incidents are related.
  8. Remittances

    Wouldn't a tax on money sent outside the U. S. violate the "no export tax" provision of the Constitution?
  9. It seems this happens every year without fail somewhere in Mexico.
  10. Nationality of Criminal Deportees - U.S.A.

    The only alternative would be by ship as non-citizens of Mexico can't be deported to that country, except in the highly unusual situation that they are legal residents of that country and the Mexican government accepts them.
  11. Police Update

    The state attorney general said that that conversation was with a member of the uniformed state agency known as Fuerza Única. What is being discussed here is the municipal police.
  12. Police officers are killed literally every day in Mexico. Sep. 13 is the day of the Niños Héroes, the young cadets who died in the storming of Chapultepec Castle in the Mexican-American War. http://www.unotv.com/noticias/portal/nacional/detalle/epn-conmemora-gesta-heroica-de-los-ninos-heroes-540601/
  13. Language problems and anger

    Again I ask you, since you have raised the subject twice, to point out to me where in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo there is any explicit or implied duty of the U. S. government to guarantee "the right to their language and culture", or where the words "language" or "culture" even appear (link attached, you can use the search function in your attempt to find the words). The best the other poster can do is claim that somehow it exists in the penumbra of the right of citizens to "exercise their liberty". http://www.emersonkent.com/historic_documents/treaty_of_guadalupe_hidalgo_1848_transcript.htm
  14. Language problems and anger

    I have read that treaty from beginning to end without finding any suggestion of such a thing. Perhaps you could point it out to me.
  15. Language problems and anger

    Can you provide a link to the provision of the treaty guaranteeing the status of Spanish in the part of the U. S. that once was Mexico?
