Other Than the 28 Dead Bodies, Acapulco is Still a Really Fun Place
Apparently they didn’t get the memo from Janet Incompetano that all is well with our southern neighbors.
MEXICO CITY — The once thriving resort area of Acapulco suffered another blow on Saturday with the discovery of 28 bodies, 15 of them headless, from a round of assaults overnight that bore the earmarks of organized crime.
Unlike many other tourist areas, Acapulco sits in a Pacific Coast state hotly contested by at least three drug-trafficking organizations and has paid the price with a rash of grisly killings in recent years and a sharp decline in foreign tourists.
The authorities in Guerrero State said the decapitated bodies, with the heads scattered around them, belonged to men in their 20s. They were found shortly before 1 a.m. outside the Plaza Sendero shopping center, an area not frequented by tourists, near two messages apparently left by a drug-trafficking organization.
Beheading is a common tactic among warring drug organizations. In 2008, nine decapitated bodies were found in a pile outside Guerrero’s capital, Chilpancingo, north of Acapulco.
The other bodies, from killings that stretched from Friday night to early Saturday morning, include six found in a taxi behind a supermarket, four riddled with bullets in two residential neighborhoods and three others in other locations.
Sure am glad that none of this is affecting our country. Oh wait it is.
Cruise Lines Abandon San Diego due to Mexico Drug Crime, High California Taxes
The new year 2011 and lack of confidence in the tax policies of incoming governor Jerry Brown bring devastating news to Southern California.
The progressive tax-and-spend policies of Democrat-run California government have chased another lucrative business out of the state. The open-borders, do-nothing immigration policy of the Obama administration claims the runner-up prize for this economic blow to an already-reeling economy in San Diego.
The major cruise lines have just announced they are leaving San Diego, California to make NEW home ports in Texas, Florida and Australia. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that Texas and Florida don’t have state income taxes and California has the highest state income tax in the country?
I’m also sure new governor Jerry Brown’s announcement that a $50 billion tax increase should be approved by voters this spring is also “helpful” as businesses make their decisions about whether to stay in “the Golden State.”
Finally, who can blame tourists for being horrified by the crimes along the “Mexican Riviera?”
Just another nail in the coffin for the liberal Mecca of California.
