  1. You assume a lot. First of all, it is none of your business whether I personally got a shot or why I did/could not go if I did not. I was not talking about myself. Some of us know/care about people whose lives are different from their own. We like to remind people that what may seem easy/affordable to them may not be possible for others. Stop being so nosy and judgmental.

  2. Good advice TelsZ4 and MezLuis. After rolling in the mud, I feel that I am just as dirty. Lesson learned, I initially thought valid questions were being asked, by another poster. Hope everyone has a great day. We are in an amazing place.

  3. It all began with a well meaning post to convey information. I thought it was most helpful. Too many engage in "assault" tactics here. And, in Covid times there appears to be an added trigger, as many don't even acknowledge emotionally just how the stress of the crisis has hit them. I think before we type, it would be helpful to think twice, and try extra hard to be kinder to one another.

  4. I´m sorry that you are sorry. Just let me know what I owe you for your vocabulary consultancy services. As far as the disappointment, I imagine I will survive if I suck it up, and with lots of alcohol.

  5. Quite frankly, I think I have less chance of contracting Covid by continuing to mask and distance from anyone outside my bubble, than I do of having some crazed antimasker screaming in my face, or being shot by some loony with a gun, in America. So I'll pass on a trip to the US.

  6. SOMEBODY gives the orders to the National Guard, so somebody or bodies is responsible for the people who are in the highest risk group, such as the disabled and nursing home residents...not getting the vaccine. I'm going to gamble that the "buck stops" at AMLO'S desk.

  9. Actually, Canada has had shortages of many drugs including insulin in the past due to Americans going up to buy subsidized drugs that they can not afford otherwise. Bernie Sanders even took a bus to Canada to buy affordable insulin. https://www.healthline.com/diabetesmine/insulin-pricing-bernie-sanders#1 This isn't a topic you seem to be informed on.

  10. I think it is costs and time for most people. Longer and therefore more expensive flights. Paying for 3 days at an isolation hotel, then continuing the rest of your 14 day isolation at home, before you can even go out. The USA as stated in today's Washington Post, is throwing away vaccines because people will not us them. If everyone was selfish Canada would not have shared the discovery of insulin with the world. https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-infection/latest-travel-health-advice/mandatory-hotel-stay-air-travelle

  13. Contacting ANYONE in the government is/was/ and will be an exercise in frustration. Part of the issue with home visits is the military will not let any vaccine out of their sight as that is their assigned mission. Followup of missed shots are ALLEGED to be allowed during next group 50-59 application. No official documentation to date. The issue of home shots has been presented without response. Perhaps these will have to wait until doctors are allowed to have vaccines and do home visits. AGAIN NO OFFICIAL INFORMATION.

  14. Yes, let him start sharing Canadian vaccines with the rest of the world. Start practicing what you preach. It's easy to spend other people's money. Also let Canada start contributing it's fair share to NATO. Instead of contributing only 1% of it's GDP, start contributing the 2% that they signed up for. Also, Canada should increase it's defense budget to protect itself instead of relying on it's southern neighbor. I remember Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, crying in his beer that if country did that, they would not be able to support it's healthcare and social welfare programs at the

  16. Just another person who can't continue a reasonable argument, and put a valid argument forward to support their statement. By the way, the U.S. souther border is allowing a lot of Covid infected people to slip through. Watch the news regarding how the number of illegal immigrants has exploded. How many Covid infected immigrants have entered Canada?

  17. Because you said this, and because you're just being argumentative and ignorant in general in regard to the vaccines and apparently to defend the glorious USA. The glorious USA that wants to open the borders and go everywhere, way too soon, now that it's OWN people are protected, when others elsewhere, are not. That is insensitive and boorish, not to mention dangerous and belligerent. Over and out with you, arguing with an :() like you just drags me down to your level.

  18. Because it answers YOUR earlier question, genius. And BioNtech is not a US company, by the way. They developed the vaccine (as well as the mRNA technology behind it) and partnered with Pfizer to mass produce it. Get your facts straight and the flagpole out of your a**.

  19. Look folks I am sorry I brought this up but some of your excuses are pathetic. Right now things are somewhat stable here. BUT What happens if the Indian variant turns up here and is deadly? Look right now 4000 people are dying a day in India. Maybe you won't be able to fly at that point. Whether you like it or not (Politically) a vaccine passport will be needed to fly in the future. Many airlines and countries are talking about this right now. You could be stuck here. Do you want to be the have or the have not. We may be getting it under control in many countries but it is

  21. I appreciate you directed this only to AMERICANS, but there are many other foreigners and Mexican nationals outside that group who have not had their first shot. And who are you to judge who does or does not have the "means".... even in the American sector?.... and/or what they did with their relief payments? There are many Americans here who are having a very hard time making ends meet for varying reasons. Yes, I do know some. So just because you are in a fortunate financial %age don't be so quick to assume all are in that basket with you.

  22. That is a very good point Gringal. If things worked the way they should have, the sale and distribution should been turned over to the private sector, hospitals, doctors, clinics etc. That has been a brilliant success in the U.S.A. Then in Mexico, the poor and aged, should have become to the responsibility of the Red Cross type workers. This group is currently on point for a task they are not prepared or trained for. So Mexico is now going to be receiving the world's vaccine hand me downs. But still waiting until private doctors are allowed to purchase vaccines, come to a handicapped pers

  25. Many homes in the Lake Chapala area are not connected to any sewer system and this includes many "high end" neighborhoods. So people put in a septic tank but most do not have the space to install a leach field pipe so the tanks sometimes just overflow if not pumped out. To reduce the volume of waste water entering their septic tanks, they many times just run their gray water from sinks, washing machines, etc. out a drainpipe that lets this water flow downhill onto the street. The problems with waste water treatment facilities are the expense to build, dependable operation and maintenan

  26. A local newspaper prints a story about direct discharge based on what local residents said has been going on for over a month, while also saying there have been leaks at the plant off/on for over a year. Local fishermen reported that there are dead fish in the vicinity. The newspaper asked the responsible government agency to comment before the story went to print. It declined. After the story hits the paper, the government puts out a short statement saying, no problema. Doesn't give any dates as to how long it's been going on; doesn't address the dead fish in the area. W

  27. Couple of places in West Ajijic a few months ago made the local papers with similar photos of sewage pouring into the lake. During the rainy season the main 'collector' box at the Ajijic malecón went underwater resulting in discharge. They spent a long time trying to move it and they did, but likely not far enough for future rainy season high waters. Look at all the new home developments that have been built and are currently under construction in just the past few years. But local elected officials will not consider a curb on growth. More and more SIMAPA water wells go dry every ye

  28. While this USED TO BE the case in/around Monclova it is no longer the case... or at least no more of a problem than any other place. Yes, there was a bypass so as to not drive right down through the middle of Monclova on Blvd. Harold Pape.... it was out through the community of Ciudad Frontera. Bad cops would wait in several spots on that bypass and were particularly bad on RV'ers. Monclova itself was not that bad. Fast forward to several years ago when the population of Monclova rose up and demanded that this mordida stuff come to an end. Signs were put up everywhere along the main rout

  29. I'm only pointing out that Canada should do it's fair share. I'm not at all grumpy. I am pointing out what Canada is not doing. And you're done because you can't hold a valid argument.

  30. What does this have to do with Canadians not returning to their home country for their vaccines? The U.S. has spent an enormous amount of it’s taxpayer dollars to develop the vaccine under ‘WarpSpeed”. The vaccines are available for sale to Canada. They’ve got them now, don’t they? So what is the real complaint? I find it Biden’s policy to satisfy U.S. needs first, then everyone else’s reasonable. Don’t you take care of yourself and your family needs first before anyone else? Would you let your own children go hungry in order to feed your neighbor’s?

  32. I can understand Mexicans going to the U.S. for Covid vaccines. There is insufficient supply here. But why, oh why are Canadians not returning to their home country to receive these vaccines?
