Yes, this is wonderful news for all of Jon's family and friends but I doubt the U.S. will be helping Me-he-co
by bailing them out. We've been giving money to Mexico forever and this is how they repay us? Jon's gun was registered before he and his friend left for Mexico! I'm just sayin'.....

The irony of this incident is beyond politics; it defies logic. With the thousands of illegal guns Mexico brings across our borders, this man was jailed? Where the hell was the government ,military interaction?

Next time Marine - listen to common sense from your family and friends. Welcome home and the best of the holiday season to you and your family.

I am very happy to hear the good news. Had I been president, those contemptible creatures in the Federal District would have met the rest of the Marine Corps. had they held one of ours that long, especially considering that they actively assist their citizens in breaking our laws and shield the most reprehensible of offenders from justice after they commit crimes here.

We had a local commissioner killed in Cabo. No one will say how. I will never go there. If you know people there or going. Tell them don't or get out.
