North Carolina - Juarez, Mexico

I've always had this comment in my User Info. page, and have decided to post it each and every time I express my feelings on controversial topics.

I sometimes write about controversial topics. Should you find you have opposing viewpoints from my own, please express yourself freely, but without name calling when I express my own. I have an open mind and RESPECT whatever concepts you may have on any given topic. I will expect the same RESPECT from you, too.

Now, on with the show:

1. North Carolina:

Back in October of last year, Glory, Norma, Lolly and I decided to go have lunch at Kiki's, which serves the best Mexican food ever. This place is pretty close to Ft. Bliss, so it always attracts soldiers.

While we were eating, this soldier came and introduced himself to us. After talking for a little while, he asked me for my phone number, and since I liked his personality, I gave it to him.

He called me and invited me to an event the Officer's were having at the Officer's Club in September, and since I hadn't gone out with a MAN in like forever, I accepted. I'm glad I did, because the evening was very enjoyable. The food was delicious, as was the wine.

Ever since then, we've seen each other quite often. He invited me to go to his home town of North Carolina for a couple of days for the Easter holiday to meet his family. They were wonderful, as were all the people of North Carolina I encountered. Never had I encountered such friendly and wonderful people.

When we returned, I found that I could like way too much this wonderful man. So, for personal reasons, I told him I wouldn't be seeing him anymore.

I took quite a few pics, and will be doing a write up, along with the pics for my website. Just as soon as I complete it, I'll give you the link.

1. Juarez, Mexico

I continue to go to Juarez, Mexico alone, because nobody will go with me, not even Norma. I decided to drive over there this time, instead of going in my bicycle. I went on the 13th of March, never knowing that the American Consulate staff had been gunned down a day before close to the border.

In another post, I will share some of the pics I took, and write more in-depth about the things I saw.

The drug lords are NOT winning; they HAVE won.

Re: Long time no replies,
Sweet Tee Pie, Furry Freak Bro, I'm on my way to visit you! Please note that every time I see a guitar, I do think of you and another LJ friend who plays one, too!

I can’t for the life of me understand why my membership, and support of the NRA would disturb you. Can’t you see that if we didn’t have the right to bear arms, we’d be in the exact same situation Juarez, and the rest of the country is in? The people of Mexico, CAN NOT own a firearm, and for this reason, they are sitting ducks to the 2nd rate hooligan WANNABE cartel. The cartel’s are the epitome of power, and their only target is the other rival cartel, which tragically, and often times, innocent men, women and children are killed in the cross fire.

The cartel drives expensive cars, dress to kill, and have sophisticated weapons. The Rat faced 2nd rate hooligan looks and dresses like a rat, and has inferior weapons to rob and kill innocent people.

When the cartel finds out that these Rats are pretending to be part of the cartel, the cartel obliterates them in a horrific manner.

Because in Texas, citizens can not only legally have firearms in their home, but also carry a conceal pistol, there were ONLY 12 murders in E. P. AMAZING when we’re just a couple of feet away from a foreign city that had close to 2,000 bloody murders!

Oh, and another thing, we have the best police department in the world! (My personal opinion)

So, please don’t be disturbed by my constant support of the NRA.

NRA represents the wrong answer
I strongly believe the solution is not to give people the rights to carry arms. So many Americans are killed by a family member who mistakenly use a gun to protect their home or kill themselves. We lost 2 wonderful leaders in the 60's, JFK, and MLK, to crazy men with handguns. Ok, but I appreciate your right to disagree, and find your position on other issues, very refreshing, and you are so sexy. Thanks for keeping me as a friend.

Re: NRA represents the wrong answer
I'm keeping you for sure!

Let me ask you this question.

Lets say our guns were taken away. I'm sleeping soundly in my bed, and I hear a noise, only to find a stranger with a gun (and we know all criminals will always have access, by hook or by crook, to firearms) in my house. What should I do to save my life?

Re: NRA represents the wrong answer
But the reality is that too many times, your gun would be taken away by stranger and used to kill you. Or the cases that guns are used to kill family members, even by mistake. Still believe that our safety would be protected by only guns used for hunting. Ban handguns, too many kids in our poor cities are killed daily by handguns.

El Che...
How sweet of you, and thank you love!

I am totally confused. You write "I found that I could like way too much this wonderful man. So, for personal reasons, I told him I wouldn't be seeing him anymore." What?!?! This makes no sense to me. Hopefully you can elaborate.

Don't be confused! :o)

There are so many reasons, and just to name one of them, I've seen too many people go through devestating heartbreak, and I want none of it.

I start getting claustrophobic, to the point of having problems breathing when I see signs that someone starts showing serious feelings for me. Anyway, those few I've turned away are extremely lucky, because I'm not worth it at all.

I admit I'd probably be jealous if you were happy with another guy, but I do want to see you happy. You deserve it

If only I didn't have the many hang ups I have, I know I would have tried everything in my power to somehow win your heart - forever.

I wish I could come to Juarez with you :)
Apr. 12th, 2010 06:18 am (UTC)
the city ...
It use to (still 2 years ago) be quite an adventure traveling throughout Juarez, and all of Mexico, and I know you and I would have had so much fun in the city with its wonderful people. Unbelievably it has all changed. I continue going there, because I realize that the day will come when I will never again be able to enter. It breaks my heart.

Re: the city ...
*hugs you tight*

I could see where this post was going. Well at lest you enjoyed each other for awhile. I can understand how you feel.

The drug lords are NOT winning; they HAVE won.
I believe you are right on this.
Take away guns from people and only criminals who use them will be the only ones to have them. They can have mine when the pry away my cold dead fingers.
See we can even agree, as you and I are on the opposite of what the president wants to do on this.
Apr. 14th, 2010 03:10 am (UTC)
It always goes there...darn it! The day God makes men like you, then perhaps...

As for the cold dead fingers; with all my heart and soul I feel the same way!

Porque no te das la oportunidad de vivir un amor??

Muy cierto, en Mexico los señores de las drugas han ganado la guerra. :(

oraciones Vicente...
No le tengo confianza al amor, ni nunca le tendre.

Se me desmorona el alma saber como los criminales han destruido mexico.

Amor, no tienes ninguna idea como me preocupo por ti y tus seres queridos. Siempre estas en mis oraciones Vicente!

Re: oraciones Vicente...
No digas eso! El Amor es maravilloso, aunque a veces duela. Pienso como esta de mal todo cuando los criminales secuestran soldados del ejercito. Muchas gracias por pensar en nosotros.

Hey stranger!! Been away too long from LJ...but I think many of us are waiting for your answer about saying goodbye so soon to yours soldier friend...:)

Adios mi amiga.
Apr. 12th, 2010 10:39 pm (UTC)
Hey stranger back at you! I had no idea that you're a brand new dad!
I'm so very happy for you!

I'm not very good at serious relationships, so I just say good-bye for the sake of the guy.

Hopefully someday you'll post a pic of that beautiful baby!
