We're Mad as Hell, and We're Not Going to Take It Anymore

I was impressed by the degree of anger, by the overwhelming dissatisfaction with the way things are now, by the unanimity of the clamor for change. I felt that a breaking point will soon be reached.

The government is now afraid to use public force to prevent demonstrators from blockading roads and streets, stealing buses and trucks, ransacking supermarkets and torching government buildings. President Peña Nieto has claimed that his patience has limits, but so far the Ayotzinapa movement appears to have forced him into a corner.

Enough! Mexico Is Ready to Explode

Today all Mexico resounds with the cry "They took them alive, we want them back alive". If the 43 are ever found, and they are dead (why and where would their abductors be hiding them?), all hell may break loose. Are the president and his cabinet ready for a major upheaval? Police, politicians and judges have been bought off or put into office by the cartels. Mexicans are fed up with living in a pervasive state of corruption and impunity.
