  •  What a concept. (4+ / 0-)

    I am still trying to figure out why people think the Church runs the show here, or some kind of oligarachy.

    And people who say wealth is held by the few here in Mexico, I would like to point out that 5% of American control 90% of the wealth in the USA. So please don't throw rocks in the glass house.

    I work with these 'fuedal' lords are they are being called, and the stereotyping going on here is worse than the lazy mice on Speedy Gonzales cartoons.

      With Sister Cities, the two municipalities can do whatever is in their mutual interest, and all decisions, including the one to affiliate in the first place, are strictly mutual.  

      From there, there are opportunities for municipal cooperation, i.e., management and other techniques, student and teacher exchanges, cultural activities, business, health exchanges, etc., etc.  

      Btw, there are a lot of different items (we once sent 300 cpu's to Hermosillo) that American companies don't want to see again here (slight irregulars, out-of-date models, used items) that are perfectly serviceable and are very helpful and useful in Mexico.  And communities here w/Latino populations learn extremely valuable lessons in the process, about language, culture, etc.

      From Phoenix, more than 500 Police and Firefighters have stayed w/families in Hermosillo to learn job-related Spanish.  They become more-effective public servants, clear crimes (Mexicanos are a huge crime-victim class), and lifelong friendships and even a few weddings have resulted!!!

      There is a lot to be said for solving problems through friendship!!!!!
