"Jane, I am so-o-o glad to see you again," Isabel cooed. "You are so-o-o wonderful." No one has ever called me wonderful before. "Come stay in my hotel for the night." I'm there! And Casa Isabel turned out to be wonderful too. We were soon installed up in the Buena Vista suite -- me and Ashley have landed in paradise. We gots a view of the Puerto Vallarta bay spread out before us that is to die for, a Jacuzzi in our bathroom that would relax even me, a table covered with chocolate cake and more BBQ in the hotel's restaurant overlooking the ocean, white lace pillows on our beds.
"We gotta pay you for this!" I told Isabel.
"No, don't be silly. It hasn't been rented for tonight, so you can have it for free."
"Then the Bush recession hasn't effected you yet?"
"Not so far."
"And what do you think of Obama's new stimulus program? As a Canadian, do you think it will work?"
America has been screwed royally by GWB, the man who managed to totally ruin the world's most powerful economy in just eight short years -- doing what even Stalin and Hitler tried to do but failed. Bush has bankrupted our country and given all our money to rich guys. And, according to my friend Alan, BHO is probably planning to hand what is left of our money over to rich guys too, his election having been financed by the same Wall Street creeps who forced Bush and Cheney down our throats. "Newsweek says that we are all Socialists now," said Alan, "but show me just ONE socialist in Obama's cabinet or even one socialist appearing on 'Meet the Press' or even on PBS. And how many advocates of single-payer healthcare are advising Obama? There are none."
"Actually, there ARE cartel people in Puerto Vallarta -- but they only come here because it's a neutral zone. The cartels don't actually do their business here. Plus the Zetas have been trained and armed by the CIA and they're trying to move into the drug trade themselves, even though nominally their task is to destroy the old Mexican cartels -- not replace them. The Zetas are challenging the old cartels all over Mexico and are trying to move in here as well but there's not much here to cut down. The cartels basically only come here to have a good time and invest in hotels. From what I have heard, there is a lot of money laundering going on here too, with so many hotels and condos being built because this is a very attractive place for American baby-boomers to retire. But then this is just my own 'Drunken Horseback Ride' opinion," he added.
