  2. Mexico's assistant health secretary announced Friday that the country now has two confirmed cases of the new coronavirus. https://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/mexico-confirms-cases-coronavirus-69280468?fbclid=IwAR2j4kLQGuxNQ-h14FJcDVMoc1tODnneKkWURauqiihhdzWrngn_jX9Dkls
  3. One person on another board said she constantly gets 100MB up and down. The highest package offered is 50MB so she is getting more than she paid for. Another is having problems getting the speed he ordered but it is still faster than Telmex. He said the company is excellent at responding and trying to fix problems. I won't have mine installed for a few days.
  4. It must be your system blocking it. 387 688-0054 The woman speaks English
  5. The building had been remodeled. It is Matamoros sur 10. https://goo.gl/maps/Zx7EJLVPiv9YzLZq7
  6. In Jocotepec, if you want faster internet than Telmex, I signed up for Unet. It is fiber optic and has up to 50MB. I bought the 30MB plan for $499 which will be three times faster than what I have now. If I like it I will buy the 50MB. https://www.unet-telecom.com/index.php/poblaciones/la-barca-jalisco-3
  7. I remember what started the swine flu:
  8. Undocumented people cannot receive federal benefits with a driver's license. A driver's license means the person can get insurance and will be a safer driver. That benefits the community. "In general, undocumented immigrants, meaning people from other countries who do not have a legal right to be in the United States, are not eligible for any federal public benefits." https://www.boston25news.com/news/trending-now/immigration-can-undocumented-immigrants-get-federal-public-benefits/936951998/ It is a Reagan signed federal law that everyone must receive emergency care regardless of ability to pay. That is called being civilized. We don't let people die in the streets. If a state wants to help illegals by giving them benefits, that is up to the state. I cannot imagine what kind of experience you have that makes you think undocumented people can receive food stamps and other benefits with a driver's license. The person must prove citizenship or that he has been legally in the country for longer than 5 years. The undocumented contribute far more than they take and that is easy to prove. Most illegals are people who flew in and overstayed their visas, not farm workers. Get rid of illegals and citizens can pay billions more in taxes. "Key Findings" "Undocumented immigrants contribute significantly to state and local taxes, collectively paying an estimated $11.74 billion a year.2 Contributions range from just over $550,000 in Montana with an estimated undocumented population of 1,000 to more than $3.1 billion in California, home to more than 3 million undocumented immigrants. " "Undocumented immigrants nationwide pay on average an estimated 8 percent of their incomes in state and local taxes (this is their effective state and local tax rate). To put this in perspective, the top 1 percent of taxpayers pay an average nationwide effective tax rate of just 5.4 percent" "Granting legal status to all undocumented immigrants in the United States as part of a comprehensive immigration reform and allowing them to work legally would increase their state and local tax contributions by an estimated $2.18 billion a year. Their nationwide effective state and local tax rate would increase to 8.6 percent." https://itep.org/wp-content/uploads/immigration2017.pdf
  9. Under current law, legal immigrants to the US cannot apply for government benefits until they have been in the US for 5 years and supporting themselves. "Are legal immigrants eligible for federal public benefit programs?" "Only those with lawful permanent resident (LPR) status, but not until they have resided as a legal resident for five years." https://immigrationforum.org/article/fact-sheet-immigrants-and-public-benefits/ Illegal immigrants cannot be approved for government benefits. Illegals do pay billions a year in taxes from which they can never benefit plus the US benefits from low wages paid to illegals and no insurance. "Undocumented immigrants quietly pay billions into Social Security and receive no benefits" https://www.marketplace.org/2019/01/28/undocumented-immigrants-quietly-pay-billions-social-security-and-receive-no/ " it’s also worth noting that undocumented immigrants are paying billions of dollars in state and local taxes each year — in all 50 states" https://www.vox.com/2019/3/1/18241692/undocumented-immigrants-pay-state-local-taxes

  11. I checked the app and there wasn't a car available. I made other arrangements. I found out I was charged when a week later I was checking my PayPal account. I have been fighting Uber over the charge for days and filed a complaint with PayPal. I can prove I didn't take Uber but that doesn't make any difference to them. Beware. If you look for a car, you might be charged anyway. Good luck getting your money back.
  12. I was charged for a ride because I looked for an Uber and no cars were available. Watch because if you look for an Uber and none are available you might be charged anyway. Use the local cabs.
  13. It takes over a month to get here by mail from Swanson's or have it shipped to Alex at his Laredo address to bring here. https://www.swansonvitamins.com/q?kw=Glucosamine+Chondroitin+with+MSM Amazon MX has it: https://www.amazon.com.mx/s?k=MSM&__mk_es_MX=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&ref=nb_sb_noss
  14. Yes, I am morally superior. I think people should have healthcare.
  15. Red states are debtor states. They receive more federal money than they pay. They have the lowest education rates, lowest life spans, poorest health and score in the bottom of all states for anything that makes life better. Maybe their lack of education causes them to think that accepting the most federal help, food stamps, welfare, etc., is why they don't understand Medicaid? There is a reason you only hear the term, "Liberal Intellectual" and not "Conservative Intellectual." https://www.psychologytoday.com/intl/blog/the-scientific-fundamentalist/201003/why-liberals-are-more-intelligent-conservatives
  16. Red states leave billions sitting in the table for Medicaid and refuse to expand it. This is Tennessee https://www.healthinsurance.org/tennessee-medicaid/
  17. You have to use the US Consulate notary. A Notario has a similar name but is an attorney not a US Notary Public. When the consulate is at LCS the notary is also.
  18. The bank can't alert you if your phone or email was hijacked by a hacker. The hacker gets the notice, not you. Check your security information regularly. If you can get a 2 step authorization code. These free apps will receive a code on your phone to authorize a log in. https://play.google.com/store/search?q=authorization apps&c=apps&hl=en
  19. Email the manufacturer and ask if they have vendors here or how much shipping is to MX or ship it to a Laredo address to be brought here. https://www.shadeforplants.com/
  20. Texas farmers are worried because it will cost them billions. They expect Mexico to retaliate with like tariffs. It will also hurt other big farming states who are already almost bankrupt because China found other soybean sources. US farmers are not happy at all.
  21. Every time I buy something on Mercardolibre or Amazon.MX, Banco Azteca calls or sends an SMS to confirm a purchase. It did irritate me until my US accounts were hacked last week. From now on I will patiently respond to them.
  22. I spent all last week changing security information on my US bank, PayPay, eBay, 3 money transfer companies and others. The money transfer companies always send an email confirming a transfer. They didn't last week and neither did my bank. The hacker got into my accounts and changed my email address to his address so he was sent the notices. It was a Russian sending my money to Poland. He bought gift cards from eBay and other companies I have used so he could cash the gift cards. Download a two-step security authentication app for your phone or computer https://www.login.gov/help/signing-in/what-is-an-authentication-app/. I thought I could count on my bank and other companies to notify me but they couldn't because the accounts were hacked.
  23. Those should be earthworms, not red wigglers.
  24. You didn't get the joke.
