    This will be the next crisis to come along. Obama and company will milk it for all it is worth and try to get that mob mentality going like they have with the Bonus money.

    It won't work but we shall see.

    Gun control debate hangs over U.S.-Mexico violence

    Fuck Mexico. If they would stop creating a market for guns no one would smuggle them down there.

    Stupid drug policies create unhappy outcomes.

    This is another example of that in action.

    Exactly. Once it was the Columbians that controlled the drug trade. Now it is the Mexicans. One day it will be someone else. Legalize drugs and end a lot of crime.

    Screw legalizing it. The drug lords in Mexico need a high speed Vitamin lead injection, 223 caliber, 3x daily. Continue until recipient has expired.

    :eek: Are you implying a sitting United States President will use a crisis to push forward his own agenda? Nooo! Where have I ever heard something like that before??

    Oh yeah....

    [​IMG]

    The Patriot Act
    Department of Homeland Security
    Illegal federal wiretapping spying on its own citizens without cause
    Illegal search and seizure
    Complete dis-regard of the 4th amendment released in several memos
    Invasion of Afghanistan
    Invasion of Iraq
    Guantanamo Bay

    Trillions of dollars spent in new "federal security programs", two wars, a new cabinet level department...

    And how many Republicans have complained about this spending? Zero. Why? Because they believe the country NEEDS this money to be spent in order to keep us safe. Have they? We haven't had one terrorist attack since. But how do we know we were in danger of one? Because Bush said so.

    And yet when another president, who just so happens to be a Democrat, does the exact same thing, uses a crisis to push his own agenda forward (and if you don't think what we're in is a crisis, then you have no idea how bad it really is) in order to help this country, you scream and yell and hold these "tea parties" and yet how many additional financial collapses of our economy have we said since Obama is president? Zero.

    Oh wait, he's only in office a little more than 60 days so maybe, just maybe you guys can sit back in your chairs and wait and see what his agenda being pushed forward actually does to this economy. Yes, yes, all of you armchair economists who barely know the difference between macro and micro economics will say Obama will bankrupt the country... blah blah, we've heard it before. Guess what? Ain't a damn thing you right-wingers can do about it until 4 years from now. So you might as well sit back, strap your seat belt on and enjoy the ride.

    I'm thinking that after the last couple of May Day parasite parades, not even Obama is going to be able to work up too much sympathy for Mexico among the American public.
