  1. IL, this may give you an idea of the prices...

    IL, this may give you an idea of the prices Mexicans themselves face.....I was waiting this past weekend in Los Algodones for my crowns to come back from the lab on Monday. I had two days to hang...
  2. I have run into pushiness in Algodones, I won't...

    I have run into pushiness in Algodones, I won't deny that - but not to the level that you describe. My take is that Algodones is almost perfectly situated - a steady stream of what Mexicans consider...
  3. Very much not the case, IL, and I will calmly and...

    Very much not the case, IL, and I will calmly and logically tell you why. At the border where I go I save boatloads of money - a fact that can not be denied. However, I am also paying the gringo...
  4. True that, TT, and no snark in this comment, ok? ...

    True that, TT, and no snark in this comment, ok? I never said otherwise - yes, there are definite issues with wealth distribution in Mexico. Granted and no denial on my part. My point is that were...
  5. Plus about the number of the US National Debt. ...

    Plus about the number of the US National Debt. And I'd also add that it's wisest nowadays should you be Caucasian and living in a lower income area, avoid them just the same as wise minorities do. ...
  6. TT, though it lies outside the realm of what I...

    TT, though it lies outside the realm of what I usually post in this area, I could not agree with your second sentence more. Not all people ARE suited for this position and I very strongly believe...
  7. I don't know that such should be part of the...

    I don't know that such should be part of the Mexican identity, bae........it's just an unfortunate fact for many Americans. Thank overpriced health care and vastly unequal distribution of wealth in...
  8. Hi, TT. No, this time I had final work done on...

    Hi, TT. No, this time I had final work done on my upper plate. I was in a bit of pain the past six weeks living on Tramadol I took across the border before it became illegal to do so, combined with...
  9. Mexico at least Algodones, still the same.....

    I've just returned from just under a week in Los Algodones, Mexico. One thing I am glad to report is that I have noticed no hostilities to Americans - it's true that Los Algodones exists to cater to...
  10. Never trust the police. Your life may very well...

    Never trust the police. Your life may very well depend on it. Once in awhile you do hear a heart warming story of a decent LEO but for the most part.....they serve as potential wealth...

    I didn't see a crisis......

    Now, you may wish to take this statement with a huge grain of salt, as I am about to post about Yuma, Arizona, which is a very spread out and sprawling place like most Sunbelt cities and towns are. ...
  12. Reached that point with my teeth, finally......

    I've just come back from six days in Algodones where I had more dental work done at of course much less than US prices. At this point most of my dental work is done and I've reached a point where...

    Thank You, Happystuff. This street indeed does go both ways and it gives me hope that you posted this and can see this....Thank You! Rob

    PS I also agree that's it is a shame to see this as...

    You beat me to it, HappyStuff....I was just going to post this for the ladies on the board. Happy Mother's Day! Great day to all the mothers out there. Rob
  15. Interesting bill in Alabama......

    There is a bill winding through the political process in Alabama that would, if passed, criminalize false rape allegations. I've been following this story and it's been a real eye opener for me in...

    Until a few years ago, Tramadol was not a scheduled drug in the United States and it used to be completely legal to buy a bottle of Tramadol in Mexico and take it across the border with you. I have...

  18. What is the deal with anti-vaxxers anyway?

    I don't understand the big deal about vaccines and why there are people so vehemently against them. Does anyone else here get this? Vaccines prevent diseases - at least diseases there are vaccines...
  19. I didn't mean it that way, Alan. I too hope it...

    I didn't mean it that way, Alan. I too hope it never happens....I just don't discount the eventuality is all. There would be no giddiness for me in such a thing happening - I hope you understand...

    I'm just waiting for the first "I felt threatened" excuse for a murder of a minority student with smartphone video backing the deceased student. Is there enough liability insurance coverage for...

    What am I most judgy about? It would be easy to say the police and leave it at that but it goes much further than that. I'm judgy of a system that keeps a good chunk of it's population down and if...

    Now here I beg to differ with you, Sir. Certainly you must have seen, over the course of the past few years, numerous video regarding police brutality/law-breaking/assualting innocent citizens/using...

    Don't be too shocked, dmc, I agree with you. They should be interested in hiring the best candidates - I am starting to see Diversity Hiring as partially to blame for the murder of Justine Damond. ...
