Calderon and Obama Meeting

via Free Speech Radio News:

President Barack Obama met with his Mexican counterpart, Felipe Calderon yesterday for a high-level summit on bi-lateral relations. The outcome of the summit was not surprising and included, White House praises for what amounts to Calderon’s militarization of large swaths of Mexico under the mantle of fighting organized crime.

“I have nothing but admiration for President Calderon in his willingness to take this on. The easy thing to do would be for him to ignore the corrosive, corrupting influence of these drug cartels within Mexico. That would be the easy thing to do. He’s taking the hard path and he’s shown great courage and great risk in doing so. And the United States will support him in any ways that we can to help him achieve his goals because his goals are our goals as well…and they should be the goals of the Mexican people.”

But not all of the Mexican people share the goals outlined by the United States. And Mexico is experiencing some of the worst violence since the end of its Revolution. Reporter Shannon Young brings us the voices of people from Chihuahua, the state most impacted by the militarized Drug War.

    of people shall be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  3. Hi! I knolw this is somewhat off topiic but I was wondering

    which blog platform are you using for thgis site?

    I’m getting tired off WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for anotther platform.

    I would be awesome if you could point me in the dkrection oof a good platform.

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her

    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally

    off topic but I had to tell someone!

  5. It’s actually very complex in this full of activity life to

    listen news on Television, thus I just use internet for that

    purpose, and take the latest news.

    1. For me this is a relatively easy quietson, but has a pretty complex answer. The specialty I have actually looked forward to working with is OB/GYN. I find that the ability of a woman’s body to produce a child, endure the amount of abuse it takes during a pregnancy, and the amount of pain endured during delivery is amazing. The joy of being able to be present as life enters the world is truly one of the greatest moments in life. To me that would be the best possible option. I also would love working in the operating room with a surgeon. I have experienced the OR quite a few times, and have been on both sides of the table. I have to say I would love to work with any surgeon in the OR except for Orthopedics. The reason behind that is the surgery’s are pretty brutal when it comes to the skeletal system. Having been in the OR with an Orthopedic surgeon and seeing the use of the saws, hammers and other heavy equipment in order to perform the surgery just sends chills up my spine. I know that type of surgery is not for me. I think my favorite surgeries have to be that of the abdominal cavity. The specialties that I would least like to work for are few, and for simple reasons. Pediatrics is not a specialty for me since I have four children of my own. My Aunt is a neonatal nurse practitioner and I followed her in high school and saw the good, the bad, and the ugly so I can honestly say I could not emotionally handle that type of position. Podiatry is also an area I could not see myself working. The reason behind this is pretty silly, but here goes, I very much dislike other peoples feet especially if they are not well kept. I know in the medical field you will encounter feet on a daily basis, but I could not mainly work with feet on an everyday basis. My last specialty is Orthopedics for the reasons I noted above about the barbaric nature of the surgeries and treatments for the musculoskeletal system. Its just not for me.

    2. I am currently fihnsniig up my BA in Child Development and Family Studies and thus far I have only work with children from 2 weeks to adolescent while helping support their families. The Physician that I would want to work under is an Obstetrics (OB) because they are in direct contact with pregnant women and their children during pregnancy. I would choose this particular specialty for a variety of reason such as having the opportunity to see individuals become parent for the first time, seeing how much love is surrounded in the process, being there to help the mothers while there in a vulnerable state. One of my main reasons is because I think that the whole birthing process is fascinating and to be able to be a part of family’s lives while going through this process, I imagine to be extremely rewarding.A of physician specialty that I would least want to work with would be a psychiatrist. Although I believe that psychiatrist do some spectacular work and help a lot of people through difficult situations I personally believe that this job would be to emotionally draining and overwhelming for me. This makes me question whether or not I would be able to handle it. When I set out to do a job my goal is to do the best that I can and I don’t feel that I could successfully do this job to the best of my ability.

  7. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don’t know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and

    defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people

    can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
