Mexican Congressional Candidate Wants to End Drug War. Also, She Poses Topless.

Via CNN:

 The campaign involves a 34-year-old philosophy professor named Natalia Juarez, who's running for the Mexican congress. When Juarez realized her bid for office was off to a slow start a few weeks ago, the leftist candidate quickly decided she was going to be transparent with voters in a way they didn't expect.

Juarez decided to appear topless on a billboard surrounded by half-a-dozen supporters of her party, the PRD (Party of the Democratic Revolution). The billboard shows the seven women, including Juarez, naked from the waist up and covering sensitive areas with their right hands while they raise their left fists.

Juarez (shown above in the center of the billboard) is apparently trying to shock a society she describes as “lethargic” into paying attention to the race. She put up two billboards in Guadalajara. The professor claims female college students support her campaign, as well as her family. She’s also promising that her next round of campaigning will be even more shocking.

She also describes herself as a radical candidate (obviously) with radical views for Mexico about the drug war:

"When it comes to drugs and the violence generated by drug trafficking, we need to start thinking in a radical way. What do I mean by that? Well, we need to start a debate. Let's legalize (drugs), tax them and use the money for other things," Juarez said.

Mexico’s elections are on July 1.

    "The campaign involves a 34-year-old philosophy professor named Natalia Juarez...The professor claims female college students support her campaign, as well as her family."

    Yeah, the *male* college students totally aren't interested. They're all like, "why can't she stick with Wittgenstein and avoid this topless foolishness?"

  • Pro Libertate||

    I just read that Wittgenstein and Hitler went to school together.

  • Eduard van Haalen||

    At Juarez's school, the School of Hard Knockers?

  • Pro Libertate||

    From Wikipedia:

    Wittgenstein and Hitler were born just six days apart, though Hitler had been held back a year, while Wittgenstein was moved forward by one, so they ended up two grades apart at the Realschule. Monk estimates they were both at the school during the 1904–1905 school year, but says there is no evidence they had anything to do with each other.

    There's a schoolboy picture of Hitler and some other kids, one of whom a controversial author says is Wittgenstein.

    I have noticed that Latin women actually like men being men, instead of the effeminate mangina types that American women like/pretend to like. Latin women are also more feminine and tend to be curvier, good things in my book.

  • perlhaqr||

    I'm just going to hope that this campaign strategy doesn't catch on with either R$ or Obama.

  • creech||

    Let's hope Nancy Pelosi isn't getting any campaign ideas from this.

  • fried wylie||

    honest to god, I bet her shriveled, fried-egg hanging-on-a-nail, are less revolting than her face.

  • fried wylie||

    insert a "breasts" in that sentence where appropriate.

  • ||

    ...honest to breast god?

  • Rich||

    ... I bet breasts her ...?

  • Eduard van Haalen||

    That would improve a lot of sentences.

    eg, It was the breast of times, it was the worst of times.

    And, as with the question of the difficulty of pimpin', all responses turn out to be correct.

    Some folks slept through that class. Just wanted to make sure it was clear.

    Would anyone sleep through Professor whore-ez's class?

  • JeremyR||

    This is not much better. Indeed, I worry that if drugs get legalized, they will be heavily taxed, which will change nothing (since the drug gangs will still exist simply to undercut the high price of the taxed drugs, like the Mafia and cigarettes) and then opponents of drug legalization will say "See, we legalized it and nothing happened"

  • Hyperion||

    Right... because heavy taxes on your favorite relaxation substance is way worse than people being thrown into prison with violent hardcore criminals, and their lives and that of their family being totally ruined...

    Maybe you forgot your /sarscam tag?

  • ||

    I gotta agree. Not a perfect move, but its in the right direction. I'd opt for heavy taxation over the DEA.

  • fried wylie||

    I opt for heavy taxation OF the DEA.

  • Hyperion||

    I am in favor of the progressive tax. Tax all progessives at 99% of their income.

  • fried wylie||

    Progress!

  • Robert||

    But nobody says that of tobacco cigarets. Nobody gives as a reason to illegalize them organized crime's involvement with tax evasion.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    And yet when Jeff Flake does this he's called a hussy.

    I'm running for Congress and I'll go topless *unless* you vote for me.

  • JimDee||

    This confirms my research: 3-4 women out of 7 are doable.

  • R||

    If you're drunk, maybe. Otherwise, I'd say 2 of 7.

  • JimDee||

    I drink. A lot.

  • ||

    Note they buried the most interesting one in the back.

  • R||

    I noticed that. Probably felt she'd distract too much attention away from the candidate.

  • ||

    Is the 4th one on the fence big hips/smushed-in face or stomach tat/scowl?

  • JimDee||

    Just for the record, the candidate is doable after three shots and five beers.

  • SugarFree||

    I like #5 from the left. You can tell she's a dirty, dirty girl. Like Warty.

  • fried wylie||

    just curious why you measured from the left.

  • SugarFree||

    Because up and down was too difficult.

  • fried wylie||

    2x+3.5i from the top, dummy.

  • fried wylie||

    (also curious why that chick got put in the back row)

  • SugarFree||

    Because of the MIRADA MASCULINA!

  • fried wylie||

    *checks with google-translate*

    Is it fuckedup that I could recognize "Male Gaze" in Spanish, despite never actively learning Spanish?

  • R||

    Shouldn't it be masculino? Or is it one of those weird nouns that don't follow normal gender rules (NTTAWWT)?

  • Amakudari||

    Most words ending in -a are feminine, so "mirada" is not irregular. Adjectives with masculine meanings don't masculinize nouns, so "masculino" becomes "masculina."

  • Hyperion||

    They are all doable. Whether you want to do them depends on what they look like and the amount of alcohol that you have consumed.

  • Hugh Akston||

    She's got my vote. Now what's this about the drug war?

  • Ice Nine||

    OK, there's something seriously wrong with that body on the left end.

  • Hyperion||

    Are you serious? Because she's curvy? Only thing I see wrong with her is that she's blonde.

  • Ice Nine||

    Jesus, look at her hips compared to her upper body. It's like someone inflated her jeans.

  • Hyperion||

    I can live with that. Most Latin women have a higher hip to waist ratio that your stereotypical American woman, and the small hips/gigantic plastic boobie thing is really not that attractive to me.

  • ||

    This condition is known as Hartman Hips.

  • fried wylie||

    Dexter's Mom has got it going on!

    Whew. Glad I'm not the only one thinking that.

    And Lois Griffon, RAWR (voice aside).

  • fried wylie||

    there's curvy, then there's "ass 300% out of proportion with the rest of the curves."

    Well Proportioned. I don't care what the mass, LWH, etc, actually measure out as, as long as they're all in proportion with each other.

    What's the exact relationship of the proportions, you might ask? I haven't done the math, but I bet it follows the Golden Rule. or a Fibonacci series maybe.

  • Hyperion||

    But giant silicone boobs and no ass is ok? Lol, to each his own my friend. I think blondie on the left is perfectly doable, and I can see that she is not flat chested. You would do her dude, don't lie to me, (:

  • fried wylie||

    But giant silicone boobs and no ass is ok?

    I'll repeat, "I don't care what the mass, LWH, etc, actually measure out as, as long as they're all in proportion with each other."

    I covered your scenario.

  • Hyperion||

    Sure, if you need perfection, it's not common, but just trying to make that point that in this country, there tends to be a stereotype of a woman needing to have large breasts and skinny hips. I just find the Latin norm of more hips to boob ratio more attractive, again to each his own...

  • fried wylie||

    in this country, there tends to be a stereotype of a woman needing to have large breasts and skinny hips

    Retards. Whatcha gonna do?

  • fried wylie||

    You would do her dude, don't lie to me

    Depends on her taste in music, beer, enjoyment of cooking out (and meat in general), comfort-level for silence, among other non-physical factors.

    Shorter Answer: probably.

  • AlmightyJB||

    "there's curvy, then there's "ass 300% out of proportion with the rest of the curves."

    I agree. that's a turn off for me. i certainly don't mine curves (hell I'd bang Juarez), but I'm not into shelves. If I can stack books on your hips or ass, I'm not into it. I really feel sorry for chicks with that problem 'cause it seems like they're stuck with it. Similar shaped girl at my gym. She's trying to run that ass off for a year to no avail. The rest of her body is pretty tight. That's gotta be frustrating as hell.

  • Robert||

    Antiperspirant ad?

  • Robert||

    You know, that's one place they don't advertise using it: under the breasts. They advertise armpits, some even palms of hands, but I know a lady who also uses it under her breasts. And it does seem that's the way you'd pose for a product to advertise using it under arms and breasts.

  • fried wylie||

    but I know a lady who also uses it under her breasts

    I'm torn between "pics or it didn't happen" or "how's SHE doin."

  • Robert||

    I'd like to find out whether antiperspirant makes intertrigo better or worse. Dryness helps, but Al salts are by their nature somewhat irritating; the gentler (higher pH) an antiperspirant is, the less effective.

  • fried wylie||

    the gentler (higher pH) an antiperspirant is, the less effective.

    Only because those deodorant-designing wussies refuse to go high enough. I use only the purest NaOH on my pits. I let the sweat turn it into a (supersaturated) solution.

  • fried wylie||

    I'd like to find out whether antiperspirant makes intertrigo better or worse. Dryness helps, but Al salts are by their nature somewhat irritating; the gentler (higher pH) an antiperspirant is, the less effective.

    It makes it worse. The Al salts will irritate the lower layers of the epidermis since they will be exposed and the increased blood flow to the area D/T the irritation increases the permeability of the exposed tissue. Not only is it a low level chemical burn, but exacerbates the friction burn.

    The best TX for interigo, IMMO, is Lantiseptic or bag balm in the case of no other complications, like a yeast or bacterial infection.

  • Robert||

    "D/T" = distal to?

  • ||

    "Due to"

  • Ted S.||

    Ever since I learned Candida was the genus of organism that causes yeast infections, I could never listen to the Tony Orlando song the same way again.

  • ||

    Knowing that Dawn was the inspiration for that song should really kill the mood.

  • Robert||

    Just going by what she tells me. Also on what might be called her thigh-pits; I would find scary applying Al salts so close to the genitals, and it's not even such a pit there when you don't have a scrotum. But she says it lets her go longer between washes of her clothes, and with the price of clothes, anything that saves wear on them -- and machine washing is probably what wears out clothes fastest -- is a good thing. However, in my experience antiperspirant stiffens shirt armpits and probably leads to faster wear that way.

  • fried wylie||

    But she says it lets her go longer between washes of her clothes

    No. Avoiding sweat-inducing activity is the only practical way of achieving those results. Trust me, I'm that sedate.

    However, in my experience antiperspirant stiffens shirt armpits and probably leads to faster wear that way.

    Analogous to freeze/thaw cycles and rocks, I imagine.

  • BoscoH||

    The blonde Centaur on the left kinda does it for me.

  • Hyperion||

    They are all doable after only 2 beers, except for maybe the 3rd one from the left. Since you can't see any T and A for her and the face and hair does nothing(minor factors), the jury is out.

  • Robert||

    I just noticed they're spelling something: fist, o, fist, fist, fist, fist, fist.

  • fried wylie||

    If you assume a linear arrangement (alternating the line from front row to back row as needed).

    Assuming a circular arrangement, starting with the candidate:

    clockwise: F, F, F, F, F, F, O
    ccw: matches your original arrangment

    Now, clockwise might seem like the dominant order to choose, but since they're "revolutionaries", ccw might be more appropriate.

  • Robert||

    Should we assume the candidate is the big fat hairy one in the middle?

    Does Mexico's campaigning season not extend to at least two years prior to the election?

  • Hyperion||

    They are Latins, they can't stop partying for long enough to pay much attention to political campaigns. I find this to be one of those good thing/bad thing... things. Corruption is rampant. Occasionally you get a Hugo Chavez, but you are always having a good time and not worrying about your huge oppressive gubirmint. Your biggest concern(if you are Mexico) is probably that the commie fascist in charge to your north have now turned your country into a war zone trying to stop their citizens from having too much of a good time.

    Newt and Chucky fuckdancing, their hairy doobs tracing lazy figure-8s as they gyrate to salsa music in New Williamsburg, the only domed city on the Moon where Lunar hipsters aren't shot on sight.

    So a socialist woman, played by Salma Hayek, manages to sneak into the moon base. She pretends to be a robot, but the men notice a certain "je ne sais qua" about her.

    Hayek (the woman, not the economist) persuades the libertopians to impose "just one minor regulation" - licenses required for land-skiing in the Sea of Tranquillity. This is followed up by a series of tax laws, then Hayek suggests setting up a central bank in exchange for her favors.

    The moon descends into socialist hell until a jealous fembot kills hayek, and...well, work with that script, add a few explosions, and have your people talk to my people.
