A recent episode of the syndicated series, BURN NOTICE, also reveals how dated our viewpoints in the states might be, as regards today's drug carters etc, in Central America....
As much as it is a cult classic, even the remake of SCARFACE only hinted at what might come next...
Though sometimes pop culture does reflect real life too!
The United States has created this chaos themselves by sponsoring the Mayan Genocide.
Guatemalan Genocide against Mayan Peoples
Death Toll: 250,000
200,000 MURDERED, 50,000 “DISSAPEARED”

In 1968 the Guatemalan Army began the systematic slaughter of the native Mayan population. This period of massacre is sometimes referred to as the “Silent Holocaust”, and led to extermination en masse of native Mayan communities. The death toll in the Guatemalan Genocide exceeded that of El Salvador, Nicaragua, Argentina, and Chile combined. Guatemalan government forces – buoyed by financing and training from the United States – committed over 90% of the human rights violations during the war.
Not even Charlie Heston c9uld just blame it on the apes!
But some of us humans can be summed up by his other now famous catch line:
"It's a mad house!!"
For once, I agree with the Republicans. Obama has bent over backwards for illegal alien children.... not so much for black kids.... and thus, encourage them to break the law and enter the country.
Republicans are full of do do, they started this mess.
Republicans didn't start the Dream Act, seeking to ENHANCE the lives of illegal children offering among other things, college scholarships, which is why foreign nationals are now sending their children, alone, to the U.S.. Obama did that.
So what! I am not super happy about the situation but truthfully the states that they are crossing into were taken from them in the first place karma is a [email protected]!$.
Why are you getting upset with me? You challenged my statement; I defended it... enough to piss you off with its accuracy, evidently.
As far as karma and "taken from them," the Mexicans didn't exactly fight the Americans with sticks and stones, or even spears or bows and arrows. They fought European military style with European weapons.... and lost. Too many black folk that were TRULY robbed to worry about than the bunch of SPAINARDS who owned the country that the U.S. won a war against.
I am not upset with you! I could never get pissed off engaged in a simple conversation about something that really does not affect me. I was not challenging you I said the republicans are full of do do. Does it really matter what you fight the devil with? What I do find odd is you defending the actions of the USA.
