War and Corruption Deficits: Insects and Leviathans Huge defense contractors and oil corporations avoid taxes through loopholes while they profit from the recent invasions into Eurasia. They lobbied our government to destroy Iraq and then to rebuild it . In the case of Dick Cheney, Halliburton enjoyed a non-bid contract. The wars and the bank frauds cost Trillions of dollars, a deep fiscal deficit. To pay for these extravagant escapades the government now forces to pay.

Mexican Drug Cartels and American Bank Cartels Walls Street Banks and Mexican drug cartels have much in common. They both enjoy call-girls as well as cocaine and other drugs. The bankers and traffickers in Manhattan, knowingly or not, often share the same escorts and drugs. They share a similar hunger for high-risk greed and power without conscience. In this regard, their business models are almost identical--based on cynical materialism.

Corporations in the U.S. and in Mexico: Devour, Prey, Seduce--Inverted Totalitarianism The patrician owners, leaders of corporations, have their own self-interests and agendas, and they rarely set a priority to improve the greater good of society. On the other hand, government's job is to balance the competitive markets so that they comply with the needs of society in general such as clean environment, health, or whatever the majority of citizens set as social goals. Today this balancing is not working.

Rapture of Charlatans Many, many Americans seek to escape reality by drugs or by religious fantasies. It may well be a sign that many of us have died morally, spiritually, and intellectually. No other culture of industrialized countries is so hoodwinked by the vagaries of born-again evangelical cults.

The Pat Tillman Story, a Documentary Movie If you haven't watched the documentary you won't know more about Tillman than what certain public officials want you to know: He earned a Silver Star Medal as a combat hero, who saved the lives of his fellow soldiers during a Taliban ambush. Several star-studded Generals, the Secretary of State Donald Rumsfeld, and President Bush lied about Tillman's death.

Mexico: God Is Murdered Somewhere between the Chihuahua Desert and El Paso After struggling for generations to improve their lot, many Mexicanos have stopped praying. Instead, they are selling drugs to the wealthy gringos in el norte. Meanwhile the Mexican government keeps a choke hold on the middle class in order to enrich the ruling class and use a clever public relations machine to conceal their mafia-type operations from the rest of the world.

Mexico: What Do Third-world Countries Share with the U.S.? General McChrystal has been placed in the pantheon of American icons, sanctified next to the likes of Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, and John Wayne. He now aligns with the many American gods that are manufactured as fast as a Big Mac or an Egg McMuffin. Heroes like these are not human. They only play the image of what America wants them to be, but mostly they reflect the self-delusion of the American culture, a bubble.

Mexico: Sex Slaves (Part I) Smugglers bring thousands of young women from Mexico into the U.S. and force them to provide sexual services for perverted gringos with plenty of disposable cash. The transaction signals a cannibal capitalism, hardcore neoliberalism, that both countries share in dog-eat-dog cultures.

Mexico: Land of Dire Straits and Reaganomics For more than the last four decades Mexicans have been risking their lives to migrate in larger numbers every year into the United States, escaping life below the poverty level and seeking better pay. Why has Mexico failed to develop its own people?

Religious Morality Is Problematic-A Failure in American Government The Bush-Cheney doctrine claims that the core values and its laws, its constitution, must be ignored and broken in order to maintain safety and prosperity in the U.S. Many Americans still believe this. However, the loss of our rational values set down by our country's architects, our founding fathers, brings us close to third-world status.
