The Day Private Idaho Was Napalmed.

SeaWorld of Pain - The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - 02/15/12 ...

Somebody help me out here. Putting the Pam Anderson photo on pause I reviewed the "shocking" similarities in human body parts and animal body parts. I was quite impressed until I got up to "breasts". I have been around animal's all my life and never realized their breasts were silicon enhanced. Did I miss something?

My favorite television show(except for Roy Roger's reruns) is the Daily Show followed by The Colbert Report. I don't get to watch it regularly in Mexico, instead having to watch it on the internet when I have good reception. I don't normally do facebook, other then to accept friend requests so that I can give them my email, and for the life of me I can't understand why anyone over the age of 14 would. This Daily show segment was so brilliant in it exposure of the hypocrisy of the liberal left that I even shared it on facebook. Like the folks in the below thread, the Daily Show got a "twofer", two for the price of one.

Remember the missionaries who lived in Private Idaho hundreds of years ago who went round the world to all the newly "discovered" islands, lands, and jungle habitations to "preach the word" and tell all the ignorant heathens how they must live and who and what they must worship, because they the missionaries from Private Idaho knew better then them, and knew what was good for them, because they were ignorant and the missionaries in their arrogance weren't. Those cultures and those people's are gone, vanished, disappeared, poof. Anything that survived is so drastically changed, and not for the better, as to be unrecognizable for what it once was. I can only hope with all my heart that the world wise's up and doesn't let the whining me, me, f**k the world liberal left who live in Private Idaho damage it any more then they already have. Let's go ahead and let them ban something else, because they think they know what is better for the world. Let's go ahead keep giving them "exclusive privileges/considerations," solely based on race, color, creed, or sex. No need to earn a privilege/consideration. Just be born a certain way. Read the history books...........

(Sorry for the rant, Glenn)

WHAT A rant from yourself and can not find out what you are trying to say. It seemsto me that we are once again being ranted to by the likes of Santorum and others that claim too much Gov. influence but bring up the old worn out abortion issue that would take away a womans right to choose. Obviously they have nothing else to talk about of any useful nature for the American public except for cutting back on services for middle Americfans and giving tax relief to the very wealthy. I too am conservative in general but still I can not condone right wing people bent on extreme criticizm of some of our legally elected officials. I was pleasantly surprised at amention that was made that,"Rush Limbaugh has been married some four times and not one of his wives ever became pregnant". Food for thought. I note that some of these main rabid right wing politicians have all been married more than once, including the multiple seciple of the right, Newt Ginrich. I note you are traveling in the predominent Catholic country as I did some years ago. I was always aware of as we came on the outskirts of town the thatche roofed houses of so may poor peasants and then all of a sudden rose up a huge Catholic church and then the exquisite home of the very rich. No inbetween, plus the corrupt police taking payoffs right on the streets. It gave me some deep thoughts. How does it affect you? Is this a place you could live permanently. We see nd hear of other countries ruled by religeous zealots and the uprisings now going on worldwide. I am so proud of our forefathers in making sure of the separation of Church and State and am always amazed that these right wing people would still want to change tghat. Would you likje to go back to the good old days when cxat cages were too small and may known trainers even had them live doubled up two to a cage. I saw and rmember it. I also recall the inhumane treat ment of elephants in living conditions, training and handling. So be it. People are healthy in most cases but more needs to be done. I note that the very liberal country Sweden has a higher standard of living, longer life expectancy and few child birth deaths. How about that, plus they have some knocked out sexy Swedish beauties. not bad. Hope I can give you and the also numerous ife conservative Johnny Frazer some food for thought. nTanglefoot.

That's all right if you don't understand. Why don't you work on this for a while "I was pleasantly surprised at amention that was made that,"Rush Limbaugh has been married some four times and not one of his wives ever became pregnant". Food for thought?????" Do you suppose he felt he couldn't afford children and made the decision with his various wife's not to have any, rather then risk the American taxpayers having to foot the bill for them someday? Some more of that "food for thought."
I'm smack in the middle John, terrified of the incredible lean to both the left and the right. I'm not conservative, because I have learned that sometimes you have to "hang it out there" to succeed. Maybe you will soar, maybe you will crash. The important thing is you took the shot, and didn't play it safe. You have a right to what you can earn, no more no less. Nobody is entitled to anything. If you don't like what you see, look the other way. Unless they are in YOUR living room, then shut them down by any means necessary. I'm terrified at what my children are going to have to face some day. They are white males and have no entitlement what so ever to anything except the air they breathe. Will there be anything left for them to earn? Or will it be Government controlled, with them being told what they can have or not have? You must pay/support them and can expect squat in return? How about this John. At your peak when you were earning what you earned as a horse trainer, the law said you couldn't earn that much and that you had to give part of it to the juggler, part to the clown's, part to the aerial act etc. so everybody had the same, and it was the United States of Vargas telling you you couldn't have a new house trailer because the elephant trainer didn't have one, so you had to keep your old one and give money to by him one?
I too am proud of my country John. So proud I presented the All-American White Tigers for years working for and earning my entitlement.

Addendum to Tanglefoot,
I don't know when you were last in Mexico. I'm not talking the trash heaps just across the border, I'm talking Mexico City and into the heart of this ancient land. If you haven't been to Mexico in the last 10-15 years or so, you wouldn't recognize it. There are more shopping mall's and cinemas etc. rivaling anything in the United States and if Dennis would verify this, lines a block long out the door's of almost every bank in every city starting a half hour before the bank opens and winding down about 2:30 in the afternoon. I don't even attempt to go to the bank until after 3:00. There is only one thing to do at a bank John, either put money in, take money out, or pay your mortgage. Do the Mexican people work hard? Yeah, incredible work ethic usually from 8:00AM to 10:00PM. The old stereotype of the afternoon siesta, like many aged stereotypes are long gone. Rural areas are still struggling, as are rural area's around the world including my beloved North Dakota as well as that shit pile to the east, Minnesota. :)
Mexico's middle class has risen to 20% of the economy while America's middle class is in serious, serious danger of disappearing for ever.
The big changes in Mexico started occurring about 10 years or so ago, when President Vicente Fox of the PAN party was elected in 2000. The PAN or Partido Acción Nacional or in English, National Action Party is one of three political parties in Mexico and is generally considered center/right. Mexico's current President Felipe Calderon also a member of PAN followed President Fox into office. Fox paved the way for foreign investment in the country, liberalized trade laws, and instituted market-oriented economic policies, as hundreds of thousands of jobs were created. And although granted many of these jobs were minimum wage, many more were not. Increased tourism has also been a major factor in well traveled pockets around the country, as foreigners discover all that Mexico has to offer, and it is a boat load.
Mexico's 20% middle-class is rapidly rising despite the global economic downturn. As I sit in the court yard of a 300 year old church, John I marvel at the changes I have witnessed since I first came to Mexico in 1974 as a young man of 19. Mexican families driving to the mall or restaurant in their Escalade, BMW, or Mercedes(they seemed to currently be the favored vehicle in Mexico. I counted 47 out of 125 vehicles at a small mall just today. Last years Ford was the only "junker" noted.) dressed in designer clothes, peering into their laptop screens, or texting on their phones. This is a country in transition John, and it is so uplifting to experience this major shift. I was too young and busy to pay attention to America in the 70's-80's, but I imagine it would have felt the same way.
The irony is that Mexico is building their middle-class at the same time that the U.S. is rapidly losing theirs. Unless the U.S. can restore some sanity and fairness in their policies, I think that Mexico could possibly become the more powerful economy by the end of this century. They have the resources, the work-force, and the will. That’s a proven formula that seems to have been forgotten by our beloved United States of America as she tips further left off kilter into a new land of entitlement, instead of a old land of sweaty balls. No disrespect intended and I have faith in her, but she is close to tanking. As close as she has ever been. I hope her citizens are smarter in the upcoming election. They can either save her from drowning, or they can shove her under again, only this time they will be holding her down.

Very well written, Wade. God bless the Mexican people. If you see the border at San Diego, many of the thousands of people on foot, waiting to cross into the US are actually US citizens who live in Mexico because the cost of living is unaffordable in San Diego. Every day they start their 16 hour days of border crossings, bus rides and work - working low paid jobs at hotels and restaurants.
People who spout the 'lazy Mexican' bull are idiots. I'd like to know how many non-Mexican citizens would go to the lengths they do to support their families.
While we have been sitting smuggly thinking our economic superiority would go on for ever, Mexicans have been breaking their backs to elevate theirs.
Keep the interesting observations coming!

Realistically, because they don't believe in luck, what happens, happens, they scratch it out a peso at a time. There is a lottery but lines to it and ticket buying are almost none existent. They are too busy earning that peso to take the time crossing their fingers in the hopes of a miracle. With the exception of their steaks which are atrocious, their candy and donuts which suck and their Nescafe(fortunately there are now almost as many Starbucks in Mexico as in the United States) coffee which has sugar added as a standard practice without asking, I can't imagine why anyone would want to live anyplace else. I think the one's who are trying to get to the "land of plenty", legal and otherwise, don't realize they are living in it and are still under the illusion that it is to the North. The more there is of something free, because you are "entitled", the less there is of it.

P.S. Mexico has socialized medicine which is great for those who need it, without hammering those who don't over the head. I wonder how they Government can afford that? The State owns all petroleum and gas resources. I wonder if there is any correlation? What are they going to do, hold themselves hostage?
Petróleos Mexicanos or Pemex has a total asset worth of $415.75 billion, and is the world's second largest non-publicly listed company by total market value, and Latin America's second largest enterprise by annual revenue as of 2009.


--Pemex says oil production in February was 2.555 million barrels a day

--February compares with January production of 2.518 million barrels a day

--Preliminary report on crude-oil exports shows little change from January

MEXICO CITY (MarketWatch) -- Mexico's state-owned oil company, Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex, said in a preliminary report Monday that February crude-oil production rose from January and that exports were mostly unchanged.

Pemex said February crude-oil output was 2.555 million barrels a day. That was better than January crude production of 2.518 million barrels a day and about the same as in February 2011.

Pemex said that in February it sent an average of 1.215 million barrels a day of crude oil to export terminals. Actual exports can vary because of inventories. Pemex reported that crude-oil exports in January were 1.191 million barrels a day, the lowest for any month in two years. Pemex officials have said that increased refinery capacity in Mexico thanks to recent expansion projects could affect oil exports and gasoline imports.

The oil monopoly's primary production complexes did slightly better in February compared with January. Ku-Maloob-Zaap in the southern Gulf of Mexico produced an average of 859,000 barrels a day last month, versus an average of 837,000 barrels a day in January. The Cantarell complex in the Gulf averaged production of 407,000 barrels a day in February, versus January's 402,000 barrels a day.

An onshore site being developed by Pemex, Chicontepec, averaged 67,000 barrels a day in February, versus 63,000 barrels a day in January. Pemex has said that rising production at Chicontepec will help make up for some of the natural decline at Cantarell, which was the top field for decades before it started declining in 2005.

P.S.S for John Milton who is concerned about "Mexican corruption," on August 11, 2009, the U.S. Justice Department reported that U.S. refineries have been buying vast quantities of stolen oil from Mexican government pipelines. Criminals, especially drug gangs, tap remote pipelines and sometimes build their own pipelines to siphon off hundreds of millions of dollars worth of oil each year. One oil executive has been charged and has pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges. The U.S. Homeland Security Department will return $2.4 million to Mexico's tax administration, the first batch of money seized during a binational investigation into smuggled oil that authorities expect to lead to more arrests and seizures. The President of Houston-based Trammo Petroleum Donald Schroeder(Schroeder, there's a fine old "Mexican" family name if I have ever heard one) is set to be sentenced in December after pleading guilty in May.

And now, I am off to my second job, as spokesman for the Mexico State Tourism Board. My work here is done....... :)
