    I predict AMLO and Trump are going to get along just fine and will end up making "deals" that will greatly benefit both countries.

    That's my prediction.......and I'm sticking to it!  😁

    Ditto that, Pappy ! Very similar in many ways. Check it out ! :D

     especially when you consider who was shut out of the voting booths under their system; way over half the residents.

    Fortunately, not over half of the citizens that were eligible to vote ! :D

    The only interest I have in NOB government is that my children and grandchildren will have to live under it.  And facts are facts.  The revered founding fathers had no interest in pure democracy,  especially when you consider who was shut out of the voting booths under their system; way over half the residents.

    Considering the way Mexico City was administered under AMLO, I don't think we need to worry about him.  I'm just happy the PRI gang lost.

    You are ABSOLUTELY correct, they did NOT intend to have a Democracy. THAT is why they created a REPUBLIC ! Too many people pretend to not know that the USA is a Republic, NOT a Democracy. Need to learn the difference.

    So we have someone that got less than 50% telling us "how it's gonna be".

    EPN did that with 32% and you did not cry about it ! BTW, you live in Mexico full time, so why are you crying about NOB? 

    :D

    Better than what you got in 2016 which is "hopeless and backwards".

    But, you forget, WE are hopeless and backward ! And, WE will get the same in 2020 !  Go cry me a river ! :D

    And in Mexico, when you get the most votes you win. What a concept. 🙂

    Yes, agree that has produced more "bad" than "good,, in the history of Mexico. Maybe, just maybe, this time will be different after the decades and decades of the most votes 'being the winner. Thank God that is not how it is done NOB in the US. Those founding fathers knew what they were doing. So, if AMLO is a winner, that makes one out of "how many losers" who had the "most" votes ?

    Yes Sonia. You did say that... at 10 pm last night on the below link. You said that Federal Laws cannot be changed by any State.

    http://www.chapala.com/webboard/index.php?/topic/67440-where-to-sign-up-for-seguro-popular/&page=2

    I think where it gets murky is that the LAW may not be changed... but the INTERPRETATION of any law is in the eye of the beholder. Jalisco certainly bent the law for a very long time with regards to "capital gains" in both PV and Ajijic while Nayarit and Guanajuato followed strictly. 

    I think all anyone wants is for the rules to be applied equally and consistently across State lines. I am definitely not sure that it's even possible.

    Actuasilly ferret, she did not say what Angus thought she said. Your post of what she was talking about was not related to what they were talking about. You completely changed her words around. Shame. Suggest you read very carefully before you accuse someone of lying again.  An apology is in order, don't you think?

    "All expats?"  That wouldn't be fair to Canadian expats who are getting slammed by the U.S. as well on steel and aluminum import duties. Sonia!  I think you need to rephrase your sentence.

     

    So what you are saying is that it is ok for Canada to screw the US in Nafta and other trade deals? Or should the US stand up to being screwed all these years?

    I read that CFE has an Amparo to prevent those small users from trying to enforce their contracts. Remember, this is the land of amparos of all kinds. The big solar suppliers are trying to get the case into court to resolve the whole thing more quickly than would normally happen here.. Their argument is that it will reduce solar growth in the future, no mention of the real victims, current users/producers. Sound familiar to anyone?

    If the solar sector continues to grow and people pay less to CFE, how is CFE going to pay huge employee  bonuses and huge retirement pay outs. Think they are like Pemex, no?

    And it is articles like the first one is what sells newspapers. 😀

    And, even sadder, those of us who live in these 4 countries know for a fact that these numbers are VERY low and the actual numbers are Much higher because of the lack of proper reporting. How much higher is anyone's guess: 40%, 50% ,..80%,....? Think about that and it gets really scary for the citizens of those countries. Why wouldn't security be a #1 priority for their Presidential Elections?!

    News about violence in Latin America is "not new news"  if it was printed today, last month, last year, last 10 years, last 20 years, etc. 

    The "new " news, Tiny, is how MUCH it has increased over the last few years, and continues to increase. The actual number of dead bodies in these 4 countries is unreal, and growing daily !

    There maybe countries in the Middle East and Africa that would disagree. People like killing people.

    If you will check, 2017 was the year that Mexico led the World, far ahead of the Middle East. Check it out.

    It is a crime report and a political comment. 

    “The sheer dimensions of homicidal violence are breathtaking,” says the report by the Igarapé Institute, a Brazil-based think tank focused on security and development issues.

    Security and development report. Concerns Mexico and those who live here and in this region of the World. Try not to cover up the truth and reflect it away. THAT does not make it go away. No matter how you cut it, we live in a Country that has much bigger violence/security  concerns for its citizens than possibly any other country in the World ! Ignoring it just allows it to get worse.

    Hello Lake Chapala community! I am coming to Lake Chapala from Dallas, TX for one month in May/June (I will know the exact dates later) and looking for a small apartment/studio/casita for one person (myself) in Ajijic, west Ajijic, San Juan Cosala or San Antonio. Being close to hot springs in San Juan Cosala is a plus. It needs to be on a QUIET street yet very close to buses and taxis (important, since I can't walk distances). I need to have a full kitchen. Would prefer a bright airy place with an outdoor space, a balcony and/or nice view. Budget 6000 pesos.
    I am a responsible, quiet person, don't smoke, don't party, coming to explore the area, visit hot springs, and for medical travel.
    Thank you. Elizaveta

    I am going to suggest that you need to budget at least double that, probably more.

    Is it possible that the person really likes the colors and combination, that it makes her happy and has nothing to do with thinking this is how Mexicans paint their kitchens? 

    I'm sure it does make her happy,or she would not have painted it like that; but, I do think many from NOB think that is what a "real" Mexican Kitchen looks like. As Tiny says, you can find this type of décor in restaurants and also a few hotels and B&B in Mexican Tourist areas, both in Mexico and NOB. Anyone ever been to a Rosa's Café NOB? If so, how many restaurants in Mexico have you seen that look like that? Rarely, verdad? As I said before, I really like it, but must keep the lady happy, right? :D

    I really like this kitchen, BUT, my wife , a Mexican Citizen, says she does not like the colors. When asked her what was wrong with the colors, she replied that in all her 53 years of living in Mexico and visiting family and friends in various cities and pueblos, both rich and poor, she has never see anything like that. She has seen something similar in houses of extranjeros here and thinks these people must think that this type of decoration is what is typically found in Mexican houses. She says that could not be farther from the truth. Just goes to show what we don't know about Mexico, but think we do.

    My neighbor went to Ocotlan to get his tags renewed. He said he was in and out in less than fifteen minutes. He noticed that his renewal fees were about half of what they were in Chapala. They said that the elderly get a 50% discount. He then asked why Chapala doesn't honor the state set discount and was told more or less that they were screwing us.

    You don't have to live here long before you realize that.

    16 or 17 years ago when we started to drive here, people told us how difficult it was to find the place(s) to get our proper permits if crossing "downtown" in Laredo..

    It was suggested that we cross at Colombia/Solidarity.  We did for the next 10 years.

    Sounds like that suggestion is still valid today.

     

     

     

    Actually, today it is not in the same place it was that long ago. Now it is easy to find and very convenient.
