Karen Fiorito !!

I'm still here; Paris-Simone had her little (not so little) operation at Dr. Silva's this past weekend so we have been busy taking care of her.  With this and her teething, she has been under some physical stress and is being attended to like the Princess she is.

By now you must have heard of Karen Fiorito, the political activist of billboard fame:

Worth Taking a Trip To Arizona to Check Out, Sort of Like Making a Pilgrimage To a Holy Site...Thank you Karen , outasight !!!

This is what I meant about returning to the USA amidst the millions of unstable Trump supporters...who needs that?

Anti-Trump Billboard Artist Receives Death Threats 

Here are some of her others from the past:

Guess who ?


Locally the death toll rises from Tijuana to Ensenada due to the non-stop executions, I'll return with the numbers even though I've been told by one neighbor that another neighbor thinks this blog is "weird". We have also had several demonstrations:  In Rosarito another protest against the privitization of gas (although I'm not sure right now if these are simply a catharsis with little to no effect ), the Jornaleros block the Scenic Highway with their demonstration for higher wages and in support of the 43 missing students with a twin demonstration in Mexico City (BTW, this local demonstration of Jornaleros received only a small amount of coverage so far here locally) and 30,000 turn out for demonstration in solidarity with the migrants and for peace.

We really didn't do anything over St. Patrick's Day and weekend due to Paris.  I made a Shepherd's Pie and a Carrot Cake with green icing- Mike kept saying, "I didn't know shepherds ate mashed potatoes." (Let me know if you want the carrot cake recipe - and to the mashed potatoes you can add two egg yolks and 2 cups grated parmesan cheese.)

How The Mexican People Felt About Trump's Visit: "Pinche Gringo Punetero!" Reforma's Thoughts On Why Pena Even Invited Him - And The Reasons Why Hillary Did Not Accept Pena's Invitation

 - And yet still, Trump insists he will build a wall.... from Telesur this morning:

After months of insults against Mexicans, Trump said again he plans to build a wall to protect U.S. citizens.

U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said he hasn’t changed his mind and he still plans to build a wall on the border with Mexico, after a meeting with Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto in Mexico City on Wednesday.
Mexicans Troll Donald Trump Ahead of Visit
During his presidential campaign, Trump has repeatedly promised to build a wall on the border with Mexico in order to stop "racists and criminals" from entering the United States, even going as far as to say that he will make Mexico pay for it.
During a round of questions by reporters, Trump said he had not discussed who would pay for the proposed wall.
“We’re saving that discussion for a later date,” said Trump
The visit sparked a strong debate on Trump’s xenophobic campaign against Mexicans, and in an attempt to boost his popularity, Trump turned to praising the Mexicans that work for his organization.
“They are amazing people, amazing people ... Mexicans are just beyond reproach,” said Trump. “Spectacular, spectacular and hard-working people.”
Trump visited Mexico after an invitation from President Peña Nieto, the same that was extended to Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, which she refused.
Activists Are Planning to Build a Wall Around Donald Trump
“Getting countries to work together takes more than trying to make up for a year of insults by dropping in for a few hours, then flying home,” said Clinton.
In June 2015, Trump said: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best ... They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox, who has had several altercations with Trump, said his visit was a “great mistake” during an interview with CNN.
"Trump is using Mexico, he’s using President Pena to improve his sagging poll numbers," said Fox.
Trump is expected to give a speech on his immigration policies on Wednesday night in Arizona.

 Hillary was also invited to Mexico by Pena Nieto and declined the invitation.  Had she gone, I imagine the protests would have been just as great or even greater given the NAFTA disaster which has denuded the environment, enslaved the Mexican people and driven millions of them into working for organized crime; her past stances (or true feelings) toward immigration and a border wall, and her most recent stance on the privatization of oil in Mexico:

Hillary does not have any amigos in Mexico other than the wealthy dinosaurs who just love Ronnie Reagan. I'll be back to focus on the fight between the Sinaloa Cartel and the CJNG in our region, updates on the USA farmworkers,and the water shut down TIJ-Rosarito starting on the 8th.
