TOTAL DISSAPROVAL FOR
Steve Stockman, Texas Republican Congressman has threatened President @BarackObama to open an impeachment proceedings in the House, to remove him from power, just at the time the Democrat will be sworn in Congress.
Its action is unjust and inmoral.
First. because Obama is eligible to use the so-called "executive privilege" to enact restrictive laws for the indiscriminate use of weapons, without having to go to Congress:
And second, because in trying to intimidate the president, he’ s slapping the face of the families that had lost their 20 children, gunned down in Connecticut
The Lone $tar $tate is outdated and parked on the XIX century
The straw on the foreign eye...

(23 January 23th., 2013). - The debate over guns in America is a good indicator of the status of the Mexican fatalism.
A part of Mexico is caught in arguments put forward by Octavio Paz in his The Labyrinth of Solitude. According to the poet we are caught on an "inferiority complex. " which follows with the resignation and silence before the unjust reality. I argue that behind these attitudes are the consequences of being a neighbor of an expansionist and aggresive country. Due to the military defeat in 1847 and the loss of half our Mexican territory our depression deepened and dragged us to the isolation from the world: we systematically didn’t study our northern neighbor from that year until the early seventies of the twentieth century..
Such fatalism appears in the debate that rages in the U.S. over weapons. Neither Barack Obama nor his opponents of the National Rifle Association (@NRA) mention the harmful weapons smuggling into Mexico. We are ignored. The dead do not exist with American bullets. They know what happens but evade the inconvenient truth. The denial will come cheap for passivity of those who govern to Mexico: when it comes to most U.S. prefers silence.
In an incisive essay, César Cansino (Mexican exceptionalism. Between stoicism and hope, Ocean, 2012) argues that at least part of Mexican society has matured in political and cultural terms and Leith the Labyrinth of Solitude. I agree with that interpretation and I believe tgat there are existing sectors willing to abjure the paralyzing fatalism before t the United States Od Amne$ia . In other words, I consider it possible, desirable and urgent, to influence the arms debatethat is being waged in the United Statesof Amne$ia, to ensure that the humanitarian tragedy fueled by weapons is one of the terms of reference.
And it's already happening. Every time that is an increasingly recogniton that there is a direct link between violence and the supply of weapons from the United States of Amne$ia. It is accepting the absurdity of only assisting victims, fighting the cartels or jailing drug lords; that must simultaneously curbed all the supply routes for the so called called "goat horns", machine guns, the barrets 50 caliber guns or "cop killer".
To change the terms of the debate needs to improve the quality of the knowledge. The Georgina Sanchez or Magda Coss` pioneering research, for example, need to be extended to confirm the correlations between events on the other side and the increase in deaths in Mexico. There is evidence that liberalization in the sale of assault weapons in the United States of Amne$ia, increased the firepower of organized crime and increased the number of deaths in our country.
Knowledge must be Mexicanized. Much of the research on the subject is in the U.S., the main findings on "Fast and Furious", a weapons smuggling, sponsored by the U.S. government, are given for work done in that country. We need to build a knowledge-oriented Mexican influence more in the neighboring country. History is clear: Washington listen to those who speak loudly and evidence. A confirmation of this is the excellent legal defense made by the Mexican government to Mexican nationals on death row and the work they do everyday to protect our consulates.
We can not evade our responsibility. When talks with U.S. officials on weapons they often react, pointing Mexican responsibility and remembering the corruption and inefficiency of our customs. They are right. What happens in our booths is a disgrace that should be incorporated into the national security agenda.
¿ Does the government of Enrique Peña Nieto have more determination on this issue, or took refuge in the fatalistic evasion? One reason for hope is the profile of the new ambassador to Washington, Eduardo Medina Mora. As General Attorney of Mexico he had a clear idea of the problem: in December 2008 to an audience surprised binational he put on the table a Barret .50 (a sniper rifle whose bullets pass through the concrete) that had been bought in Texas and seized in Matamoros. Already appointed ambassador insisted that the right of Americans to own guns should not be used to "arm foreign criminal groups" (Zocalo, January 17, 2013).
Former Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan[/b] did what he could to put the smuggling of weapons into the discussion. He did not get far, because the previous government was quite timid against Washington. This time may be different. The new administration is willing to give higher priority to victims and security. Any progress will be determined, in the latter case, the mobilization of that part of Mexican society organized seeking allies in the border country because the Mexican society has been freed of the fatalism versus the Empire That was just about time
