The point is, Mexico is on my family vacation list, right next to Uganda. And don't blame it on the drug dealers. This kind of crap has been going on in Mexico for a very long time. Was it last year that Mexico was on the list of most corrupt nations, right behind Iraq? I wouldn't be surprised if half of these heinous murders, like all those women's bodies found buried near Juarez, were committed by the policia themselves. Of course, any prosecutor who brought evidence of that to court would find himself hanging from a bridge, disemboweled.

Ro anyone with a bit of common sense knows this. This thread is just another case in point how delusional baja really is.

Hell when I use to travel down there in college it wasn't the gangs we were worried about it was the ****ing police! Bastards would take your cash faster than any criminal!

76 journalists murdered so far. http://articles.cnn.com/2012-05-03/j...?_s=PM:JUSTICE

Just imagine how many thousands were beaten or intimidated if 76 were actually killed.

5 killed in shootout yesterday. 45,000 since 2006. Oh but bring your families to mexico and sip margaritas with baja! Everything is fine!!!
http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/...R4T_story.html

23 hung off a bridge yesterday....14 head delivered to city hall in a cooler.

I won't be wasting my time here trying to convince you the media is sensationalizing stories coming out of Mexico. It appears your world view is dictated by the 6 o'clock news.

Man are you guys being controlled by the press. Scary really. Carry on with your media induced fear as well as your media induced false sense of comfort at home.

Why don't you check out the better travel sites and see what they have to say.

I use to joke about it when I didn't agree with you but dude you are flat out delusional to what is happening in your country. You moved down there to be safe yet you criticize America and us for living here because it's unsafe? You are out of your mind.

They say whatever the Mexican travel bureau pays them to say. Are you arguing that these stories are false? There weren't dozens of bodies found buried around Juarez. All those journalists weren't actually murdered? All those people weren't hung from overpasses. Heads haven't been found all over the place? Sorry, bro. You have your head in the sand. There is some heinous **** going on down there.

Some perspective baja.........

DETROIT....Notoriously known as one of the most dangerous cities in the country had it's lowest amount of murders since 1967. 308 for the entire year of 2011. A city of millions. I'm actually shocked at how low that number was. The gang bangers in Detroit are puppy dogs compared to what the cartels are doing.

St. Louis. Quite possibly the armpit of America. Only 142 murders in 2011.

http://policelink.monster.com/news/a...vel-since-1967

It's not just the cartels. It's low life Machismo ingrained in Mexican culture. They don't even treat their own women with respect.

I'll tell you one area where Mexico has it all over the U.S. It's the way they conduct their presidential debates:

For over 200 years there has been no country in the world that can measure up to the USA in many ways. We were the standard for other nations to strive for. That is what makes it so sad that the USA is losing it's moral rudder at the federal government level. A historical beacon of light is being lost.

...and few here seem to notice.

This too shall pass. Don't dive off the cliff. We've actually been through worse upheavals than this. The Civil War, for example. I believe this ship will turn from this dark course of ignorance, pettiness and stinginess, and pretty soon, too. The spirit of the American people is better than this. Keep a light on in the window.

No not really.

Considering your comments over the years and with all the time you have to post i think it's more likely you are a school nurse. I remember you being wrong on almost every injured player you offered a prognosis on. Often being grossly off base.

I doubt a quality doctor would be running to a football message board to post the latest beheadings to make some obscure point, they are just too busy.

What is your point anyway?

Hell you even ignorantly make fun of an age old tradition of washing out the sinus cavity with a saline solution. No real doctor would ridicule that practice.

But I don't mind if you like to play a doctor on a message board. I enjoy most of your posts actually.

I wish there were a better way, but there isn't according to my ENT.

For starters you are shockingly uninformed as to how the food you put into your body affects your health.

You seem to consider not the advantages of a good exercise program.

You discount Yoga a tried and proven practice to maintain optimum health.

But if you enjoy the board status of being a pretend doctor that is fine with me, it doesn't really hurt anyone.

In CO, where the air is dry, my sinuses just slam shut and retain the pollutants and irritants.

Using a nasal rinse is the only way that works for me, cleans out the sinuses and gets rid of the irritants and allows me to breathe freely.

If there were a better way, I'd be doing it......rinsing isn't a lot of fun.

This is what I use, it is very effective, but again.....no fun.

The Benefits of Using a Neti Pot: Oprah and Dr. Oz Love it

Washing your nose is every bit as normal as brushing your teeth or taking a shower, according to Dr. Oz and Oprah. So what's with this nose bidet, or neti pot Actually, the nose bidet has been in use for years.
Dr. Oz is not the first physician to recommend them. A regular on Oprah's TV show, you can read more about Dr. Oz by clicking HERE.

I have sinus problems. My own physician recommended that I wash my nose and said that it would help my sinuses. I didn't believe him and thought that the whole procedure looked really weird. It did look weird. It still looks weird. But I brush my teeth, and I wash my nose.

The concept behind the neti pot, or nose bidet, is simple. Every day substances and pollutants enter our sinus cavities through our noses. Centuries ago the kinds of materials that entered our bodies through our nose were probably a lot less harmful that the substances that enter our body through our nose today.

So what can be done about it? Simple. Rinse your nose! Enter the neti pot, or nose bidet. People rinsed their noses years ago, long before they were dealing with the pollutants of today.

Sometimes using a neti pot or nose bidet is called irrigating your sinuses. That's another fancy way to say rinsing out the inside of your nose.

Here's how to rinse your nose

Put a saline substance in your neti pot, nose bidet or other device. Personally, I use the Neil Med Sinus Rinse. You can read my review about the Neil Med product by clicking HERE.

Use warm water, not hot, not cold - remember this will be going in your nose. If it's too hot, it will burn. If it's too cold, you'll get the worst brain freeze you can ever imagine. Only use warm water.

Then add a mix of non-iodized salt and baking soda to the water mixture. Lean over your sink, lower your head sideways, and pour the water-salt-soda solution in one side of your nose.

The water will run out of the other side of your nose! No, you won't swallow it, not if your leaning your head over and have it twisted sideways. But you will feel weird, I guarantee it.

Here's how to make the saline solution

According to National Jewish Hospital in Denver, Colorado, the best solution to use when rinsing your nose is:

* Mix one-half teaspoon uniodized salt in an 8-ounce glass of warm water. Uniodized salt is used because iodized salt may be irritating when used over a long period of time.

* Add a pinch of baking soda. A pinch is a small amount you can pick up between two fingers.

* If you are congested, use the entire 8 ounces of saltwater during the nasal wash; otherwise, 4 ounces should be enough.

Get a neti pot, nose bidet, or Neil Med Sinus Rinse. Rinse your nose and let me know what you think of it. Other than feeling weird, that is.

A dry heave would probably be the appropriate reaction from a person witnessing for the first time the ancient practice of nasal cleaning. While it’s not a particularly pleasant event for a bystander, a good nasal cleansing session can lead to sighs of relief (out of both nostrils!) for the doer of the deed. Though nasal cleansing has been a technique used by yogis and Ayurvedic practitioners for ages, today it is an often recommended remedy by doctors for treating environmentally induced sinus and allergy problems and other respiratory ailments.
Since mouth breathers are a bit discriminated against in yoga class, the benefit of nasal cleansing for stuffy yogis is clear. With allergy season just around the corner, if you haven’t ever felt the relief that comes from sticking a neti pot in your nose and feeling the salty water drain out the other nostril, you should seriously consider it to the alternative of popping more pills.

So, if you’re interested, you may be wondering what you need to do to get started. There’s really not much. It’s pretty simple actually. You may want to buy a neti pot, but that’s not even necessary. Many ear, nose and throat doctors suggest using a baby bulb syringe for getting the water into the nose. You can’t get much cheaper. If you decide to go the bulb syringe route, the only other thing you will need is a glass jar to put a homemade saline solution in. While you can buy individual pre-measured packets of saline, here’s a homemade recipe that my sister got from her doctor.
The saline recipe:
Carefully clean and rinse a 1-quart jar. Fill the clean jar with tap water or bottled water. You do not need to boil the water.
Add one level teaspoon of non-iodized (“pickling”) salt. DO NOT use table salt. Table salt has unwanted additives. You can ask for pickling salt at the grocery store.
Add one level teaspoon of baking soda (pure bicarbonate).
Stir or shake before each use. Store at room temperature. After one week pour out any mixture that is left over and make a new recipe.
Once you have your mixture ready, all you have to do is squirt one to two syringes of solution per nostril and let it drain into the sink or tub. Check out this clip for a demonstration on how to properly perform a nasal cleanse using a neti pot. The same technique can be applied if you use a bulb syringe.

The Benefits of using this solution:
Rinsing your nose with the salt water and baking soda solution washes crusts (gross) and other debris from your nose.
Salty water pulls fluid out of swollen membranes. Washing the inside of the nose decongests it and improves airflow. Not only does it make breathing easier, but it helps open the sinus passages.
Studies show that this mixture of concentrated salt water and baking soda helps the nose membrane to work better and move mucus out of the nose faster.
While the above recommendations have worked for me, there are a lot of websites with even more information on nasal cleansing that you may find useful. I particularly recommend the Himalayan Institute.
