read an article this morning about a socialist buddy of Chavez running for head of Mexico and getting in if public sentiment about US anti-immigration has an influence on the mexican voter as is likely... Mexico and Venezuela are huge suppliers of oil to the US - I could see them pulling some shit...

The largest source of hard currency in MX is money sent in from the U.S. The second is tourism and third is oil exports.

If you could cut off no. 1, how could they afford not to sell us oil?

around here they travel in mini-vans


if you see a beat-all-to-shit Aerostar, Caravan, etc from the early nineties/late eighties there's a 99% chance it's full of mexicans.

BTW, they take the seats out so that more can fit...think "clown car"

That's true but China's entire economy depends on us buying their goods. They would tread
