US machine guns dont get sold to drug cartels. They get sold to Mexico government offices, who then has personel who simply walk off with them.
The problems of Mexico are not the result of US actions...other than keeping an open boarder.

A vise good enough to go on a POS VMC with poor maintenance where for years according to you the automatic lubrication oil gage always read zero, tools bang out of the spindle and randomly shoot through the carrousel to bounce around in the work area. like the machines you said you program, setup and operate but don't/didn't do the daily operator checks.
How many tools can handle being shot out of the spindle, through the carousel and bounced around in the work area?
Last time you mentioned a piece of equipment you were looking to add to your garage shop at best Jon could only be described as a hobby grade machine, so much for quality when YOUR money is involved.

What CAD/CAM system did you buy for your garage shop Jon?

PV De-Motivational System or when you just don't care anymore.)
Defeat For every winner there are dozens of losers, odds are you're one of them.
Stupidity Quitters never win, winners never quit, but those who never win and never quit are idiots.
Failure When your best just isn't good enough.
Futility You'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take and statistically speaking 99% of the shots you do.
Ineptitude If you can't learn to do something well, learn to enjoy doing it poorly.
Losing If at first you don't succeed failure may be your style.
Mediocrity It takes a lot less time and most people won't notice the difference until it's too late.
Mistakes It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.
Pessimism Every dark cloud has a silver inning, but lightning kills hundreds of people each year who are trying to find it.
Procrastination Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now.
Agony Not all pain is gain.
