Mexican Elections posts 2006 / Elecciones 2006

27 Abr

27th-Apr-2006 12:25 pm – Felipe Calderon H
Como diría el “Doctor Simi” todo parece indicar que sera presidente, ¿quien?, pues Felipe Calderon, tiene todo el apoyo de Fox, del IFE y de los medios de comunicación.

¿Por que, ¿Por que los escritores y la comunidad artística son de los pocos que no lo apoyan?, ¿Tendrá que ver con que Aznar lo apoyara?.

Seamos objetivos, Calderon se reúne con guerrilleros a los que les llama “amigos”, es parte de las “Ligas Cristianas” que suena mucho a grupos de extrema derecha que gustan de condenar a todo aquel que no sea como ellos (y aunque lo sea), ¿hay ahí una contradicción?, luego para colmo es un político como todos, de esos que se auto-autorizan “creditos” para comprar casas de varios millones de dolares mientras le dicen a la gente que ellos van a ayudar a los pobres.

¿Y como los va ayudar?, por lo pronto parece que los ayudara a seguir siendo pobres ya que el que no trabaje y no quiera esforzase no pagara impuestos, genial, ¿no?.

El va con la política de que es mejor darle pescado a alguien un día que ayudarlo a pescar, ¿ayudarlo como?, si son demasiado pobres, nada pueden aprender y nada mejor se les puede ofrecer.

Si así están las cosas tendremos 6 años mas de lo mismo, inseguridad en TODO el país, viajes al extranjero para lucirse como nuevos ricos que son (el presidente y familia), crímenes como los de Cd. Juarez sin resolver, impunidad para fraudes cometidos los políticos y sus familias, censura de libros, muchos discursos de como vivimos en el país perfecto, vender lo poco que nos queda a los extranjeros y ahora, como agregado, un gobernante mas fascista que el anterior.

La buena noticia es que no va a ganar la “izquierda” porque con eso de que son gente muy mala que quiere cambios quien sabe como nos iría.


27th-Apr-2006 12:10 pm – Las cosas cambian
Y “El Universal” también, la nueva imagen es totalmente fácil de actualizar pero bastante difícil de leer fluidamente, yo que pensaba que ahora si iba a arreglar esa información flotando por todas partes pero quedo peor.

Sin embargo mi veredicto es que se ve muy bonito, esta lleno de información, le agregaron fotos, es ágil y se ve costosa, ¿que sigue?, seguro empezaran a cobrar por tener acceso a ella.

A “conformarse” con “La Jornada”.


2nd-Jul-2006 07:24 pm – No voto
Hoy fueron las elecciones, y digo fueron porque la mayoría de las casillas, a esta hora, ya han cerrado.

Es la primera vez que pudiendo hacerlo no vote, y dire porque.

Aclaro, por supuesto, que no pierdo mis derechos al no ejercer una obligación ciudadana, yo, al igual que otros millones de personas en la República seguimos teniendo el poder de expresión.

Bien, las razones:

– No estoy de acuerdo con el sistema del IFE, gastar el dinero de los impuestos para una guerra entre candidatos es una perdida de dinero cuidadano solo comparada con el FOBAPROA. Tampoco se hizo nada para evitar las descalificaciones y el clima de violencia que dieron las campanas. En pocas palabras el IFE se quedo solo mirando permitiendo toda clase de abusos y atropellos.

– El IFE también gasto el dinero de los contribuyentes en una elección para aquellos que dejaron el país y ahora viven en otra parte, como ya informé en otro escrito de esta bitácora cada voto costo aproximadamente 350 mil pesos, y, quien los pago?, no fueron los que viven lejos, claro, fuimos nosotros.

– Los partidos políticos que no alcancen el numero de votantes necesarios para mantener el registro pueden conservar el dinero que se les asigno para las campañas así como los bienes adquiridos con ese dinero.

No había opciones de quejarse de cualquier anomalía tolerada por el IFE, las boletas no preguntan si se esta de acuerdo con el sistema, se dan solo opciones para votar por candidatos, para quejarse con el IFE de problemas en las votaciones, nada mas.

Mi dinero fue gastado en una estupidez y la única manera que encontré para quejarme (además de esta) fue no yendo a votar.


7th-Jul-2006 08:13 pm – ¿Quien se alinea?
A los que dicen que una marcha va a desestabilizar el país, a los que dicen que el revisar las elecciones voto por voto agravará la inestabilidad, a los que dicen que habrá una crisis por ejercer nuestro derecho a protestar en contra de unas elecciones que le dan el triunfo a un candidato que 24 horas antes de las elecciones tenia un porcentaje de perdedor, les recuerdo que el IFE, el presidente Fox, el PAN y Felipe Calderón fueron los que manipularon las elecciones, si hay una devaluación la culpa sera de ellos, no de los que exigimos que se respeten las leyes. Ya dividieron la sociedad, ahora les toca aceptar que no pueden violar las leyes y luego pretender que el pueblo es el victimario.


18th-Jul-2006 02:43 pm – Headache

I subscribed to a few communities so maybe google can rank my journal higher.
Some of the communities look awesome and I wish I had joined before but there’s one I would rather not be part of, still, it has plenty of users.

It was kind of traumatic reading the comments on some of the posts on that community, there’s at least one “big user there who still thinks saying everybody that goes against ideas must be ignorant or does not  know things (a la Tom Cruise), and, worse f all there are many who believe Israel should defenr their people and their country, yeah because it’s like USA soldiers not defending their territory and soldeirs in Iraq. To them it makes sense. Anyway, I went to the second meeting organized by AMLO, I wish more non-supporters would also attend since it’s important to ask for clean elections, it doesn’t matter who wins as long as it’s legal. There was a lovely scene during the meeting, many AMLO supporters with yellow flags at the top of the SEARS store building, it could’ve been one of those “an image is worth a thousand words” if only I had taken my camera.

18th-Jul-2006 02:43 pm – Right Wing SPAM
The best thing about this elections is how many spam is being sent by FECAL supporters. There’s a lovely one saying that being a leftist is giving what you have worked hard for to those who are lazy (and poor), it’s amazing how some people even print it and hand it over to their friends so they can know “the truth“, and what’s more amazing is that those people are also receiving benefits from that “Evil government”, like money for their relatives who are over 70 years old.
But, in a certain class of people that’s all they can talk about, how they “received an e-mail that said who AMLO really was” and it’s depressing to no end how people who have gone to University are not willing to read the newspaper but believe every word SPAM says or even think all leftists want is communism.

This country has been invaded by SPAM, and most people only believe what chain-mail states, it’s “known”, people talk about those things, they are surely true, like they never lived in the city that AMLO was the governor of during 4 years. And what about TV?, “experts” say elections were good, adverts say AMLO is dangerous. In the USA Bush “won” and I know some people voted because they “didn’t want their kids going to school with gays”.
It’s all too familiar.

Who cares if FECAL committed a million dollar fraud, who cares if the elections were a fraud, e-mails and TV say if you go against FECAL and support AMLO there will be a revolution, protesting is calling for a war, wear a white ribbon to show you want peace, not in the Middle East, in Mexico, because bad people want to ruin everything good the country has.

1,000 people have been killed since January in drug-trafficking related crimes, but same as in the USA, those who can see what their presidents are really using their jobs for should leave the country and allow those who believe in propaganda to keep staying right where they are and live happily ever after.

20th-Jul-2006 07:31 pm – ¡¡¡BIENVENIDA A LA DERECHA!!!???
Una universitaria cursaba el sexto semestre de sus estudios.
Como es común en los universitarios, pensaba que era de izquierda y estaba a favor de la distribución justa de la riqueza, que aún ella no había logrado pero esperaba tener las oportunidades que a sus abuelos, por ser campesinos, se les había negado.
Tenía vergüenza que su padre fuera de derecha y que se opusiera a los programas socialistas, proyectos de ley que otorgaban beneficios a los que no los merecían y un porcentaje de impuestos igual para todos. Sus honorables y objetivos profesores le habían asegurado que la de su papá era una filosofía equivocada.
Por lo anterior, un día se decidió a enfrentar a su padre. Le habló del materialismo histórico, la dialéctica de Marx, tratándole de hacerle ver a su padre cuan equivocado estaba al defender un sistema tan injusto como el que defendía la derecha.
En medio de la conversación su padre le pregunto:
– ¿Cómo van las clases?
– Van bien – respondió la estudiante – tengo promedio de notas de 10. Me cuesta, no tengo vida social y duermo poco, pero lo logro.
El padre pregunta:
– ¿Y a tu amiga Soledad, cómo le ha ido?
La hija respondió muy segura de sí misma:
Muy mal, Soledad tiene cuatro de promedio. Se la pasa todo el tiempo en los centros comerciales, o anda de fiesta en fiesta, no estudia y muchas veces ni siquiera asiste a clases. No me extraña que repita el semestre.
El padre mirándola a los ojos, le respondió:
Entonces busca al Jefe de Departamento o al Decano mismo, a quien tú quieras y pídele que le transfiera 3 de los 10 puntos tuyos a ella, para que ambas tengan un 7, esta sería una buena y democrática distribución de notas.
Ella indignada le gritó:
Sabes bien que la solución no es regalarle mi calificación a los que no trabajan por ella.
Su padre, siempre paciente le pregunto:
– ¿Cuál crees tu que seria la solución?
La hija explico al padre:
La solución es dejar de pensar que con caridad se resuelven las desigualdades, la solución es comprender que todos tienen derecho a una remuneración justa por su trabajo, sin importar quienes sean sus padres, su religión, o su raza.
El padre con los ojos llorosos la abrazo y le dijo:
“Estoy orgulloso de que tu si hayas entendido lo que es la izquierda”.

4th-Aug-2006 07:44 pm – Unas ligas mas
La información fluye a una velocidad a la que que solo el internet pudo acostumbrarnos así que aquí agrego un par de ligas a páginas que se actualizan mas rápidamente (y con opiniones menos personales) que la mia.

El sendero del peje – Blog lleno de información sobre las elecciones, cuenta con artículos periodísticos, vídeos y fotografías, es una de las mejores fuentes de información para la resistencia pacifica o simplemente para enterarse de las noticias que los consorcios televisivos han censurado.

Foro del monero Julio Hernandez – En este foro diferentes usuarios reportan sobre la resistencia pacifica e información relacionada con la situación general post-electoral.

También esta una buena página aquí:

Dicen que nos tendremos que esperar hasta el 2010, a ver.


9th-Aug-2006 11:23 am – True Colours
Black Sunshine
The Supreme Electoral Court decided that the country needed 9.7 more of democracy because 9.7 of the votes the Electoral Institute declared as legally okay actually had mistakes, errors and problems. So one month later and after companies and the government spent many million dollars in advertisements saying the elections had been legal and clean it turns out they weren’t, but, trying to avoid a complete meltdown of the elections the electoral court said they were just going to act like they were democratic by making it public there were errors and that’s it.

Wild Yellow Bloom
The biggest avenue in the world is still closed, it’s invaded by some 60 tents with people from all areas of the country, some complain there aren’t many people there (just a few hundreds) others believe it’s more than enough to get their point across.
Meanwhile hatred between different social classes grows without control. There’s two very defined sides now, the “peaceful ones” who support the current president and the ones that same president called “renegades”. The peaceful ones are sending chain mails asking those on their side to give poisoned food to the renegades and last weekend a peaceful one tried to murder some renegades whilst they slept by driving his van over the tents.
The peaceful ones just want their luxurious avenue back (there’s the stock market, most translational hotels and bank offices there same as embassies), and they want to drive around that avenue just like they always have done. If only they had opposed so strongly to the big fraud with banks years ago that avenue would have never been closed now in the first place.

Orange Crush
These days Mr. President Fox never leaves home without 4 helicopters looking after him and dozens (hundreds) of guards making sure nobody near him shows up with a sign asking “vote by vote”, that regarding the “errors” with the elections.
What happens when a person manages to fool the guards and shows a sign?, just what happened to the 2 men who did it in the past 3 weeks, they got beaten up and threatened, all after Fox said to his audience “Let him enjoy his freedom of speech”, what a gift you gave them Mr. Fox!.
The most fantastic part is how the government plans to start a new police group, the “Order” division, which will be in charge of making sure all people behave properly or according to “peaceful” standards.

Red Red Wine
The “winning president” is in a hurry, he’s asking people to join him and start to work, he has so many plans, to fight violence, economy issues, etc. I wonder why the current president can’t do that, he still has 6 months left, and he could at least try to do something, anything, because after 5 and a half years of him being the president the situation only worsened, small companies went to bankruptcy, foreign companies asked the problem with street violence to get solved, cheap products from China flooded the country, women in Juarez kept being raped and murdered, amongst other problems which he seems to think have nothing to do with the president.

Electric Blue
All the media goes to the same direction, even gossip shows are participating. A popular program hosted by a woman called Patty Chapoy had her saying “Yes, we Mexicans want to live in peace so we hope our authorities finally decide to put in their place those who want something else”, there are ads demanding that new police to be formed so issues with those “outlaws” can be solved.
Of course, nobody cares about robberies, kidnappings, frauds, illegal businesses made by members of the current and “future” president staff, those are crimes, but there are worse things.

Pretty in Pink
A newspaper in Spain (El Pais) made a mistake, they said a fraud is legal and protesting against it is illegal, oh, those Spaniards, they make the silliest of mistakes, we’re all hoping that once they realize no more parts of Mexico (or Latin America) will get sold to their companies they can make a correction.
ABC in the USA said the SAME, but we know what they’re like.
It’s just a shame they don’t inform about the real situation, like how nobody is wearing the “peaceful” white ribbon; People last Sunday also got asked to light up their car lights during the day (and if the person had no car?), but news should have standards I guess.

So far so good.


14th-Aug-2006 09:12 pm – Update
We start with The Supreme Electoral Court again, right now they have finished counting the votes they chose to. The “winner” said there were no big changes, most media informed the same, the “loser” and some groups of intellectuals have shown proof that only around 20% of those votes were not damaged, corrected, lost or violated.

The “loser” shares the interests of millions of citizens who want a real democracy and not another fraud or more “news” calling for massive hysteria.

But, who is that person the president supports?, who is the president?, who are his friends?.

I have mentioned all of that information throughout my journal, but I’ll resume it here, and I’ll add some more details.

President Fox organized many protests BEFORE he won the elections, he asked for democracy and stated that if he didn’t win the elections with a bigger advantage than 5% he was going to request the Supreme Electoral Court to get involved. His followers and him closed airports, demanded at the congress for votes to be counted one by one, and that was 9 years before he became president, it was when he asked for clean elections on different states, back then he also “threatened” with different (illegal) measures to make his voice heard.
After 6 years of being president he is about to leave just as he arrived, he did nothing to fight crime, during his term more than 1,000 were murdered in drug-dealing crimes; robberies, kidnappings, murders and similar crimes raised, his wife became known for using charity for her own profit, she also used her position to give multi-million dollar contracts to her sons and friends, she acted as President several times claiming her husband couldn’t do the job, she sued every journalist (and journal) who revealed her illegal actions.
She and her husband, the president, found some allies to get rid of a popular member of the opposition and started an unusual trial that luckily, was dismissed by a court several months later.

Currently other people just like them, from the same political party, are governors about to run away full of criminal charges against them. One is the governor of Puebla, accused of paedophilia and helping a paedophile friend of his leave the country. A journalist was the one uncovering the child molesters organization, she was kidnapped, tortured, raped and then sent to jail for “false accusations”, the latter happened in Puebla.
The other governor about to lose his job is in Oaxaca, he’s accused of several things but last week he added to his list the murder and torture of a group of teachers who have been protesting for several weeks asking for a pay rise.

The “winner”, Felipe Calderon, is a politician known for approving a law to make all Mexicans pay for a debt banks created, that debt will be paid by all residents with their taxes for the next few decades. He also gave various contracts to his brother in law when he participated in the current president’s cabinet. Amongst other things, the brother in law was in charge of the census of voters for the current elections, situation that he abused by removing people from the lists in areas suspected to be full of supporters to the opposite candidate.

Is their political party related to their behavior?, I say it is.

PAN (Partido Accion Nacional) was created by the same people who brought to America the European Fascist Movement, has a close relationship with conservative Christianity, and because of those two things only it’s understandable how the PAN is full of double standards.
To this day is unknown if the President’s wife used the “slogan” of the fascist party in Italy for her charity on purpose, what is known is that her organization was highly criticized by the media, until new laws were made which allowed the media to abuse its power, then the President, the PAN, the president’s wife and her family became the image of perfection.

Today president Fox and Co. violently attacked people who kept requesting The Supreme Electoral Court to count votes properly.


16th-Aug-2006 03:04 pm – “Die citizens”
How does the Mexican government reacts when they receive protests from people and M.Ps at the Congress?, surround the place with fences and prepare for war, of course.

20th-Aug-2006 09:17 pm – Disappointed
In the past few weeks (decades) this country, along with others, have suffered a betrayal by the people in charge of making their voices count, as a result there has been despair, anger and mostly resignation.

But really, what is my opinion?.

Not that anybody cares but I think this is ugly. The most likely options, at least in Mexico (Venezuela will be discussed in another post) are:

– People get fed up and forget about the whole damn thing.
– People keep demanding their rights but things remain the same.

A street here, a TV station there, some murdered, why?.

I now believe the problem is the leader they chose, it’s only one and it’s only human, it doesn’t get tired of making one mistake after another, feels too strong, is too comfortable, contradicts himself but worse of all, is completely alone at the mountain top, the only advisers he has are seemingly dumb.
We cannot blame anybody for losing due to not knowing how to cheat, but we’re talking about a historical chance to make a difference, days pass, avenues remain closed and the criminals who want to start a dictatorship are still smiling for the cameras.

If the next step was a rebellion, with hundreds or millions taking the streets only to get shot by a fascist government, would a difference happen then?, I believe it wouldn’t, countries in LA have been through that, things didn’t get better, thousands died, but the two most recent occasions a small group of people tried to abuse whole countries (Argentina, Venezuela) millions made their will count and less than a dozen died.

So now I think the “loser” in the Mexican elections is being irresponsible, again.
President Salvador Allende cared about his people, therefore he didn’t send them to a sure death when he was being overthrown, I don’t believe AMLO is evil, he simply doesn’t understand for a lonely leader he’s not big enough.

Thousands have ideas, plans, suggestions, or stupidity spreading inside their little heads, but everybody waits for the leader to approve or disapprove, to change his mind, to try really hard to know what’s best. There’s an unwillingness to keep moving forward, to make decisions, to do self-criticism, some want to be close to AMLO and fight their way to that position, but nobody wants to take the bull by the horns, nobody wants to be the visionaire, nobody wants a catchless triumph like Kirshner or Castro did. A few want to appear in the historic photo, but most don’t really know what to do.

I don’t believe in the “winner” and I don’t believe in the “loser”, I don’t believe in the “Institutions”, I don’t believe in justice for Mexicans, that’s why I didn’t vote. But maybe, a new way to view the economy will be born out of this.

Unfortunately, since society is so divided, I don’t know where my point of view leaves me at.

— Update, it’s been days I wrote that and didn’t post it, my opinion is slightly less pessimistic now but I still don’t think chances are being taken.

The “loser” candidate keeps asking people to remain living all along the avenues closed, it seemed likely that his politician friend (Mayor of the city) was going to act like they wanted to follow through and “free” some car areas and he was going to act like he believed in law when applied by legitimate people, but, putting it shortly, nothing is going to change.
What has actually been a result of blocking the biggest avenue in the world?, millions calling him a threat and the President sweating a bit, the latter could’ve been the result of a more effective measure, in my humble opinion.

But it seems quite unlikely the “winning” candidate is going to become president, the current president is virtually isolated because every time he goes somewhere there’s at least one person reminding him he’s a traitor, his heir will surely have it a million times worse, because even if he has said he’ll use the army to “keep stability” he can’t stop digging his own grave with each word he says, there’s a huge queue of people willing to sacrifice him in order to get things back to the way they were, with that false sense of democracy, as long as people keep working for less than the minimum to keep buying things…

And every time the “winning” candidate opens his mouth, a kitten dies.*

*Information not proven yet. But I do die a little inside when that happens.


2nd-Sep-2006 01:28 pm – Some things

  • Yesterday was a great day, a victory.
  • Hate, hate and more hate. All between the ones who try too hard to hide their origins and those who don’t care but want justice.
  • People do have to get over the idea of a “super dad” who will always provide, one who will protect against all evil, one who makes all decisions and people just have to admire. I’m talking about Bush, Hitler, Ceausescu. But the world will always have too few Ghandi’s.

September has started marvelously.


15th-Sep-2006 11:52 am – You know you make me wanna shout
Today is Independence Day, luckily for us the “winning” candidate and other people decided it was better if it became “Peace Day” and kids were asked to wear white, and make drawings of a dove representing peace and all those things Mexicans want more than democracy.

I’m still concerned, various people who used to support AMLO (the candidate who did win) seemed to get really close to him, people at blogs, journalists and the like, and I’m sure some of them were friends before but, am I implying that AMLO offered them something in exchange of their public support?, not in the slightest, but I fear once a person becomes your friend is hard to be objective, because if one cares about a person their flaws are minimized.
I fear AMLO is not hearing many different points of view, maybe he hasn’t realized the whole country is not interested in what he’s doing, and those who are seem to live in an utopic world.
At least we got rid of the king of cheap utopias for tonight’s celebrations.

Meanwhile a fantastic web of governors and other high level politicians fond of paedophilia was uncovered, what is the government of president Fox going to do about it?, put them in jail?, keep investigating?, of course not!, they get it sorted in a better way, they asked the media to stop reporting such information!.
If only all world leaders could be that brilliant, crimes would have stopped decades ago.

Fuí a la convención.

Algo desorganizado, no tanta gente, lluvia, muy buen ambiente y al fin tenemos presidente.

Jose Joel

20 Abr

Afortunadamente ya no se escuchan noticias sobre Jose Joel y su relación con su padre, Jose Jose, a diario, pero aun sigue siendo un buen tema que no se ha analizado por lo que daré mis comentarios al respecto.
Es muy desagradable ver como un padre reniega de su hijo, es francamente triste ver como ese mismo padre intenta meter a su hija sin talento a cuanto programa puede pero creo que este asunto va mas alla.
Hay que admitir que ninguno de los hijos de Jose Jose tiene talento, es mas, como lo dije ya hace días, el señor no tiene realmente un talento espectacular, simplemente tuvo suerte de interpretar temas entrañables, y se entiende que un padre se ciegue ante la torpeza de sus hijos pero en el caso de “Sarita” ya tiene tiempo que se sobrepaso el limite, que si “Operación Triunfo”, que si “Cantando por un sueño”, que si la reunión familiar, y sinceramente de la cara de la niña ni me acuerdo, es tan gris como sus hermanos mayores.
Pero Jose Jose, creyendo ser un buen padre le consiguió contratos a su hijo, le daba una pensión mensu
al, lo invitaba a eventos para que cantaran juntos, le permitía a su hijo llegar a su casa de EUA con todos sus amigos (del hijo), y, ¿que hace el hijo?.
Lo único para lo que parece bueno es para quejarse, decir que no tiene el suficiente apoyo, ¿que mas quiere?, ¿que su padre cante siempre con el o por el?.
A “La Academia” llegaron jóvenes a los que ninguna puerta se les abrió antes, y este “joven” que sigue viviendo de su padre se queja de que ninguna oportunidad es suficiente, le envidia el talento a las personas que están cerca de Jose Jose y nunca es capaz de hacer un buen trabajo, ¿para que?, nunca necesitó esforzase, para eso esta su padre, que afónico y con el pulmón colapsado sigue trabajando.
La madre de Jose Joel se queja de que el dinero que han recibido no es suficiente o era lo menos que merecían, siguen recibiendo dinero del señor a pesar de que tiene muchos años que el se divorció y que sus hijos cumplieron los 30, y todos usan el mismo discurso, que lo quieren, que no quieren su dinero, pero todas sus acciones dicen cosas distintas.
Con una situación así no me extrañaría que Jose Joel sea un personaje que de vez en cuando dará entrevistas junto a su madre y hermana para hablar de lo malo que es Jose Jose pero que nunca hará nada por si mismo.

Space vs MySpace

13 Abr

These days most people who surf the internet have a MySpace, I don’t even have to explain what it is, it arrived, it took over internet users, it’s a trend so it will surely die soon, but we haven’t seen the worse of it yet.
MySpace is yet another sign of a decadence in “modern” society, a few years ago the phenomenon was “Blogs”, some became “invite only”, it was a place where people could write about what they ate, who they “secretly” hated or what was happening inside Iraq that TV didn’t want anybody to see, “blogging” was often superficial, but it was about communication, MySpace usually just has a bio, cheap music, an obscene video, a few “please look at me” photos and lots of animated gifs, blinkies or horrible backgrounds with no proportions, they don’t inform beyond “I’m hot, if you are hot add me” or most of the time “I’m desperate for attention, if so are you add me”, there are thousands and thousands of kids wanting to look like teens, adults wanting to look like teens and teens looking all the same, holding alcohol, holding guns, girls showing boobs holding their li
ttle digicams to the bathroom mirror, there are a few who just want attention for the sake of it and will wear and pose anything that belongs to the weirdest trend they came across.
And finally there’s a handful of “MySpace” celebrities, and I’m not talking about teen celebs who have a MySpace (most do) but people who became famous thanks to that place, and they do appear in “real life” magazines or TV shows, it’s rare, but internet surfers know them and recognize them, judge them, hack them, criticize them and forget them, just like any other famous person.
It’s been decades since humans have been wanting a service like this, a place that requires them no effort like making a personal homepage and gives them the chance to appear in a massive media as anything they want.
And the problem is?, the currently ultimate whorization of the masses.

Today they march tomorrow they can’t vote

13 Abr

Out of all the possible scenarios I have heard in the past few days in regards of the USA legalizing 14 million illegal immigrants there’s only one theory that makes sense.

Thousands are taking the streets in the USA to demand being legalized, they are people who arrived there illegally but many have stayed for decades, their families are there or their families depend on those people to keep receiving money in their countries.

Some news papers talk about a million people marching at the same time for the same cause, the immigrants have USA flags and signs in english, they don’t want to be considered Chinese or Mexican, they want to be accepted as an essential part of the USA.

The biggest event to put pressure on the government will happen on May 1st, it’s asked of the illegal immigrants to not work or spend money that day, they go as far as asking people in Latin American countries to not buy products made in the USA, they are trying to cause a big impact on the economy so the USA understands they wouldn’t survive without them.

Most are already making plans on how they’ll use those 14 million new USA residents, some are saying that we have to be sensible and only around 4 million can be legalized but one person said today what is more likely to happen.

Politicians there don’t need 14 million people who, even as residents, can’t vote, and society there is divided, more than half believe illegals should be legalized and more than half also believe illegals should be considered as criminals. Why would they want to risk the voters they already have only to please illegals?.

We all know the USA can sell everything and cheaply because illegal workers are paid as slaves, we all know if 78% of those illegal immigrants were returned to their country of origin (Mexico) others would arrive, if a million is willing to go out and ask for fair treatment another 10 million are more than willing to go to the USA and be treated as animals if that guarantees them earning a few dollars a day, we can imagine USA people, paranoid as they are, won’t sympathize with the thousands of kids saying they are not criminals, USA people are more likely to freak out and will request all immigrants to get deported, could I be wrong?, maybe, but an expert on the subject already said the only thing that will come out of these pacific marches is going to be more hate on behalf of the extremists.

I believe illegal immigrants are to USA people like flaws to most people, they are there, they can’t be ignored but it’s easier to pretend to not be seeing them, and if somebody points them out that only has a negative effect.

And now musicians and writers are joining in, they are late, nothing good will be coming out of this.

¿Naturaleza asesina?

9 Abr

Como todos los que hayan sintonizado en Canal 40 en los pasados días sabrán, ayer pasaron ahí la película “Natural Born Killers”; Debo decir que jamas me llamo la atención verla pero una parte de mi estaba algo interesada en la música que supuestamente había hecho Trent Reznor.

Ayer vi cuando comenzó, me aburrió y cambie de canal solo para ver la ultima hora y pico.
También vi el debate entre un tipo chaparrito y calvo y una muchacha elitista sobre porque la película era muy buena y de culto y de porque no lo era.

Independientemente del debate pienso que la película es pésima ya que solamente es un pobre intento de caos y solo tiene éxito siendo una muy poco creativa glorificación de los asesinos.

No se cual haya sido el punto de la película, pero al menos que su meta hubiese sido convertir a sus personajes en productos de consumo masivo tal como el ahí mostrado O.J. Simpson la película no sobresale en nada, es más, su pareja de asesinos en serie, protagonistas de la película, no se convirtie
ron en seres admirados por las multitudes, ni defendidos ni ganadores de premios de actuación, yo diría que, la película fracaso en todos los planos.

No creo que el director sepa que la mente de una persona que daña sin remordimientos sea como la de un esquizofrénico, es mas, dudo que ese sea un hecho, pero lo que parecía tratar de mostrar una mente en confusión termina siendo solo escenas de una película que parece haber sido hecha por muchos niños ambicionando ser surrealistas.

Hasta Los Simpsons tienen mejores retratos de una mente en la irrealidad.
Y lo triste no es que una caricatura sea líder en ámbitos de producciones inteligentes, lo triste es que en Mexico justo ahora se ha dado el paso sin retorno a la violencia por el puro placer de crear sufrimiento.

Tiene una década que se asesina a cientos de mujeres impunemente por placer, en un estado, con las autoridades cubriéndose unas a otras, y avanzan los secuestros, los crímenes pasionales, los ajustes de cuentas entre amigos y familiares, se atropella a señoras embarazadas, se estrangulan ancianos, se queman madres de familia, les cortan dedos a niños, y así aparece el acto final, un joven que mata a dos niños tal vez en complicidad con la hermana mayor de estos, y se nos muestra nuevamente a las autoridades incompetentes que recogen evidencia en bolsas usadas de supermercado, y se nos muestra un asesino “incapaz de hacer algo asi”, ¿y qué hace la sociedad?, no intenta terminar con ello, no se muestra horrorizada de aceptar que la sociedad en que vive ya esta podrida por completo, lo que hacen es ir a entrevistar a los asesinos, conseguir sus perfiles, hacer programas especiales, argumentar que hay que buscar una explicación porque el “sucedió como resultado de que nuestra sociedad es un asco” no convence a nadie, debe haber algo mas, la culpa la tiene su familia del asesino, las demás están bien, todos tenemos valores, reprobamos el crimen, debemos seguir engañándonos y pensar que no somos como “en otros países”.

La verdad es que como sociedad ya no tenemos salvación, estamos en franca decadencia, se dio el paso final y este se acepto como “signo de los tiempos”.

Me había perdido unos días pero ya regrese, con menos fuerza que antes.
Y me entero que Ebrard ya presento su gabinete, un gabinetazo que incluye a su novia, la novia era actriz y se llama Mariagna Pratz, me sorprende que a su edad haya conseguido novio y me sorprende que Ebrard solía ser casado.
Ahí viene la seguidora de la Martita.
Luego tenemos el muy superficial caso “Mauricio Islas” su aun esposa lo conoció y pocos meses después le dijo que quería tener un hijo con el, el informa que se sintió honrado y decidió casarse con ella después de que la bebe nació. Durante el matrimonio el le pidió el divorcio, le fue infiel y le dijo que no quería continuar con la relación pero ella como es muy buena esposa siguió a su lado a pesar de todo, cuando ella misma dice que no se sintió valorada en sus sacrificios fue que decidió hablar con los medios de comunicación y contar su historia de maltrato que ella tolero y de falta de respeto que
ella demostró por si misma.
No necesitas que otra persona te insulte si tu mismo anhelas el abuso y buscas situaciones donde perder tu dignidad.
Pero claro, como ahorita Mauricio no es santo de devoción de ninguna televisora todos apoyan a la que esta exigiendo casa, pensión y respeto.
Por ultimo una probadita del caso “Anel/Jose Jose”,¿la excusa de la señora para gastar el dinero a manos llenas?, “El dinero es para gastarse”, claro, pero hay que ganarlo primero, ¿no?.
Aunque hay que reconocer que Jose Jose era solo un interprete como muchos otros que no aporto mas que voz a muchas buenas canciones que ya casi nadie escucha.
