    Is it true that you have to have the original Car permit in the car?. We had a copy with the original at home. We were stopped today and the Policial Vial man said that we had to have the original or the car would be impounded. We got out of it, and dug out the original to keep in the car, but we are just wondering if that is actually the law. Can they really imound your car for not having original documents in the vehicle?" My husband and I are Temporal and he has a Jalisco driver's license.

    No. But they can use that "threat" to get a bribe from you if you are not up-to-date on basic driving laws. I suspect he got a nice "mordida" from you.

    You know damn well I'm Canadian. And I learned more about the U.S., the people, the individual states, their economies, the GDP, and every other damn thing there was to know geopolitcally and historally by the time I hit grade 6. Way more than you ever learned about Canada, probably in your whole life. And your comment that I know little about it is taken from what I said? Show me where. No, don't proselytize: show me some facts. You can't, can you, because you are just throwing mud, as always.

    Well.mr. canadian, I happen to agree with his observation of you,  I do not hear what you are saying about the illegals as what the American Citizens are saying. In fact, what I hear is that the people are fed up with the trash from South of the Border coming to Our Country without an invitation. So, we elected a President who promised to keep his promises, (and lots has already been accomplished) and he is taking care of the Supreme Court(as promised), so we think it is just a matter of time before Big changes take place. He is already telling the World to treat us fairly, or kiss our ### (Canada included). One thing my grandpappy taught me was that you do Not mess in the affairs of your neighbors, and to keep your comments about them to yourself. Sadly, you did not have a grandpappy like mine. You have never seem me comment on your country and how it should be or is.

    Poor people from the States are not trying to come to Mexico to do work that Mexicans won't do.  Enough said??  But keep on...and on.

    Geez, that dog won't hunt anymore ! You gotta do a LOT better than that. But, keep on and keep on. You are not speaking to Democrats here, who will believe anything ! :D

    I wish people would stop referring to undocumented migrants as "illegals". They may have committed an illegal act by entering the country without proper documentation and permission,

    THAT is EXACTLY why they are referred to as ILLEGALS ! THEY are ILLEGALY in the Country because they broke the LAW ! Rarely do "wishes" come true !  :D

    Have you noticed the number of Central American "illegals" now asking for hand outs in Chapala.

    My friend in Guadalajara mentioned that there are significant numbers of them in the bus station and another strategic locations.

    I thought like in Europe, the first country they land in, that country  must give them residence 

    Mexico "gives" No One Residence. You either meet the Mexican Requirements or "Hasta la Vista, Baby " !  :D

    A lot of them do have pride.

    We live in a row house so many people walk by the house. We leave an old garbage out front. Many people will drop in their cans wrappers as they walk by. I have actually seen kids run across the street to throw something away. Only time we have trash is when it is blown in.


    Are you talking about Lakeside, or another area of Mexico? Often what you say doesn';t seem to apply here?

    That is one thing that SMA is definitely not. If you have the funds and are into that type of scene, no place in Mexico can beat it as a retirement place close to the US, IMHO. It is all that Ferret says and more. You need to experience it for a while, if you think you will like that scene. For me, I loved it, but loved being near Lake Chapala more, so I gave up all that SMA offered me that Lakeside does not to be near the water. Lake Chapala is MUCH more Laid-Back than SMA, and offers much less, IMHO. Each to his own. Go

    Good people in both areas, and also "turds".

  8. Mexicans expect the President to solve all of their problems when they elect him. They do NOT want to sacrifice to get to where they want to be. That is why they will always come up short. They are not prepared to give their lives so their children and grandchildren will have a better life.

    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?

    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 ?
