2010 La Nacion Azteca adelante con coraje y passion!


Thanks to freedom of speech & the miracles of technology now every bigoted, obtuse, ignoramus has the ability to spew inane drivel all over the internet.  There are blogs which accuse & ridicule with narrow-mindedness, blogs that write about cholos & cholas, entries with such tittles as “Dirty Mexicans up to no good.”  These blogs are established with the sole intent of slandering and tarnishing us all with blind prejudice.

We’ve had enough!  We’re tired of  being offended!  We are beyond appalled,  feel disheartened at the anti Mexican blogs we read, and would like to say that, seeing such things sadden us.  LOL  Yea  they’d love to hear that, wouldn’t they? Well we have news for them : Not on your life!  Keep it coming!  We love it!  You underestimate us and we love it, because that means that you will never see us coming. We thrive on such feeble tactics. We hear your ignorance &  it drives us, it inspires our ambition, it fuels our fire!  My warrior brothers & sisters of the Aztec nation let us thrive, overcome, conquest & prevail on this the year of our bicentennial. Let us make 2010 the year that Mexicans everywhere show the world their true Aztec Warrior within.

In order to achieve this, let us make this year about : promoting, receiving, and propagating the pursuit  of continuous edification & a never ending thirst for knowledge. A sound education is the key to a brighter future. Let us strive for education in whatever form it maybe.

In 2010 let us show case & represent with ardor the beauty of our culture ,past & present, including our colorful & cool pop culture.  Let’s make it so that  being Mexican may come to be associated with:  gallantry, splendor, refinement, class, non violence, superlative aptitude, and brilliant intellect. Let this be the year that we unite in brotherhood. A year in which we elevate & honor our people & our heritage.  Let us reject all that would do other wise, that which would go against all the hard work & suffering that our fellow warriors realize & endure.  Let us join together with love & respect for one another & help each other out.  We are all in this together.

Let being Mexican be associated with benevolence, contribution, and passionate, earnest, endeavorers. Let Mexicans be associate with warm hearts, a helping hand, and pure, faithful, steadfast  friendships.

In 2010 let us protect and venerate the Mexican woman’s reputation and image.  Make our Aztec princesses gain admiration &  respect through all our achievements, contributions, and commendable actions. Here’s to demonstrating our creativity, originality, ingenuity, and artistry.  To leaving a radiant an awe inspiring legacy. Let us restore the grandeur & sanctity of our land, rescue it from those who blemish it.  Let our land be stripped of the reputation which is associated with a gaudy& cheap tourist destination.   Let this be a year in which we proudly commit to imparting our story  communicating and celebrating our astounding history.

Si se pudo y  Si se pude , y siempre se podrá!  Para el 2010 en el año que nuestra bendita patria cumple su bicentenario vamos a mostrar le a todos esos  soberbios, ignorantes , racistas,  quien es el Mexicano.  Que somos cholos, matones, ignorantes, flojos, criminales, conchudos, drogadictos, malvivientes, rateros, corrientes que solo servimos para llenarnos de niños…..etc. Que somos de una nación muerta de hambre y atrasada, que causamos lastima.  Eso hablan de nosotros. Rompamos en billones de pedacitos hasta que ya no sean roconocibles los esterotipos que se le attribuyen a los Mexicanos. Pues aquí en todo esto esta el reto , y se que su corazon fortificado por sangre de guerreros, y su espíritu apasionado les incitara solo una  respuesta: Yo soy Mexicano y no me rajo!

El Tri’s World Cup uniforms unveiled


Speech from Mexico’s coach Javier Aguirre:

I would just like to mention that the moment that I decided to take on the charge of leading the National team I asked for 11 warriors on the field. This is exactly what I am witnessing  & have witness before my eyes during our previous, and current  matches, training, &  activities. Warriors with  hot blood running through their veins, with unbreakable bones, and fiery legs.

Everyone of us has such an eagle warrior within us, that warrior who leans on the strengths of : concentration, determination, and the desire to win everyday. Today I urge more than 11o million Mexican warriors to join in the daily battle. May we all who are present here today be ready & disposed to fight on. Let us not think twice & chase after the “ball” that motivates us everyday.  I invite you to fight on as the true warriors we are in: your jobs, your homes, with your people.  Let us not loose for an instant the purpose for which we wake. Win, win, win absolutely in all we endeavor!

It moves me to know that behind these young men stands a country, our Mexico!  A country with an unmitigated &  unyielding courage & hunger, with a heart that will beat so loudly that we will hear it everywhere. Let us believe in ourselves, let us believe that we are a country that was born with everything necessary to triumph. Let us believe & understand that we are warriors and as such we will return. Thank you very much & good night.

vamos chavos echemoles galleta !

somos la nacion

azteca, de sangre guerrera!!!

2010 Marks Mexico’s Bicentenial


2010 will be  a very special year  for the Aztec nation for it will mark the bicentennial of their Mexico Lindo y Querido (beautiful & beloved) for all Mexicans. During 2010, 100 years since the Mexican Revolution and 200 since the struggle & victory for the nation’s independence will be commemorated. Many celebrations & ceremonies in order to begin the count down have already taken place & many more festivals, projects, and plans have been elaborated & are are set to take off  just for this extraordinarily grand occasion.

One of the illustrious & patriotic projects set to inaugurate during the celebration of the the Mexican bicentennial is :Torre del Bicentinario = Bicentennial Tower is currently in progress & is expected to be completed by 2010 in  the center of Mexico City. The tower will beat the current  holder of  the title : “Latin America’s tallest building”  Torre Mayor which is 738 feet (55 stories) also located in Mexico City.  Torre del Bicentenario will be 984 feet tall and 85 stories. The building will be home to offices, restaurants , a gym,  a museum, &  much more, including  a convention center. The building is composed of two pyramidal shaped stacked together.

The part where the two pyramids intersect is the location of a glass sky lobby which will allow magnificent views of the park adjent to the building and spectacular views of the city stretching out before it.  The cost= an estimated $600 million. The design is said to be product of Rem Koolhaas famous for his designs of the Prada stores in New York &  L.A  as well as the Seattle Central Library. The tower will commemorate the start of the Mexican battle for independence from Spain.

Another  notable Bicentennial enterprising endeavor will be “Arco del Bicentinario” =  Bicentenial Arc.  The arc will be inaugurated in Mexico City. 37 of the best Mexican architects where hand selected to work on this historic national  & patriotic project. Among the 37 talents: Alberto Kalach, Javier Sordo Madaleno, Enrique Norten, Pedro Ramírez Vázquez, Teodoro González de León, Ricardo Legorreta Vilchis y Fernando González Gortázar.

The Arc is set to be inaugurated Sep 15 of 2010 the eve of Mexico’s Independence day.

The arc’s bases will be set : one near “Lions’ Gate”  in Chapultepec Forest & the other in Ariel Park. It will run length wise along Reform Promenade  & will be set at a height  between an altitude that will be between the entrance to Chapultepec Castle &   “La Torre Mayor”  =The Great Tower, currently  the tallest building in Latin America.

Yet another occurrence linked to the celebration is the release of new money. The new money(coins & bills)  has already entered into circulation and will help to illustrate very important chapters in Mexico’s history: the revolution of 1910 & the crusade for independence. National Heroes depicted on the Bicentennial coins include:  Ignacio  Lopez Rayon, Francisco Xavier Mina, Francisco Primo de Verdad y Ramos, Mariano Matamoros, Carlos Maria de Bustamante….   The new Bills: On the new 200 peso bill Miguel Hidalgo father of the Mexican Revolution will be depicted on the reverse the famous patriotic landmark  The Angel of Independence. On the 100 peso bill the picture of a locomotive transporting revolutionaries of the  armed movement that began in 1910 is depicted on the reverse part of the famous mural by David Alfaro Siqueiros  entitled “From Porfirisum to Revolution”
