    1. Same old same old no difference from.week to week this violence ties into the many UFO sightings and the belief that aliens are in fact demons and fallen angels as spoken of in the bible I'm praying for the Mexican people and hope they repent but not holding my breath

    2. Praying for the Mexican people? It's a narco society founded on corruption and violence. I have to laugh at the thought of them repenting.

    3. hilltopbarber .
      hilltopbarber acid taker?Are you fuckin crazy?
      Are you chongin on something?Fuck are you talkin about?

    4. I don't mean to make it seem like I'm undermining 8 people losing their lives in juarez in 2 days, but 2 or 3 years ago 8 dead in juarez in 1 day would've been considered pretty peaceful. It seems the violence there has really taken a dip.

    5. ...Yea I agree, a couple years back weekends saw even up to forty murders.
