It should be no secret that I am big on promoting RP because unlike those who think that Peñasco is already over-developed I believe that we haven’t even scratched the surface and if Puerto Peñasco is to have a bright future it will not come about from those (mostly) lethargic sideliners sitting around their favorite watering hole talking about them thar good old days!
Being a Gringo I take the perspective that if I were a National and had the responsibility of raising my children and supporting them in a lifestyle they rightfully deserve then I want the City (State/Fed) coffers filled to the brim so that our community leaders can develop an infrastructure that will support my kids y nietos for generations to come.
I’d want better hospitals, schools, job opportunities, roads, street lights, etc. because I wouldn’t want my children to have to (or want to) head north, south, east or west for a better lifestyle because we could have it all right here-- if as a community we put our minds, backbones and muscle into creating a region that can be “All It Can Be”!
What I find objectionable about those who oppose controlled growth in Rocky Point is that they are usually the very ones driving around in their new gas guzzling SUVs, Hummers or F-250s, have a nice little retirement income, a nest egg, maybe paid cash for their casita and can scoot up to AZ any time they stub their poor little toe so they can sit in a plush doctor’s office (clinic, hospital) being pampered while boasting about ‘the good’ life they live in Mexico!
Then, with the $1,750 band-aid applied to their gut wrenching wound they sign the last insurance form and with a "Hi-ho hasta luego, doctor" they jump in their SUV, run down to Wal-Mart, Costco and maybe Safeway to stock up on another month’s supply and rush back to Peñasco to ‘live among the people'!
¿Cómo se dice en Inglés “hipócritas”?
¡Viva México y Puerto Peñasco!
