Monday Night Drug War Updates

Oh joy, what a great use of resources : U.S. to send more drug agents to Afghanistan

Meanwhile : Mexico's drug gangs drive film crew out of town

Also : With Mexico's army in the war on drugs

Author : U.S. security no match for drug cartels, legalization should be considered

If you want to hear a thoroughly tired non-sequitur re-hash of the pathetic "save the children; all drugs are the same : evil; we need to restore our culture; marijuana is dangerous, even more than alcohol or tobacco, and is killing kids" propaganda, Asa Hutchinson delivers.

Unfortunately for Asa the Arkansan, the other 7 panelists are stuck on facts and reality, seemingly quite unconvinced by Asa's worn-out rhetorical regurgitations from out of the 1980's :

Here is what your former boss Newt Gingrich thinks:

O'Reilly: Now, they have no drug problem in Singapore at all, number one, because they hang drug dealers -- they execute them. And number two, the market is very thin, because when they catch you using, you go away with a mandatory rehab. You go to some rehab center, which they have, which the government has built.

The United States does not have the stomach for that. We don't have the stomach for that, Mr. Speaker.

Gingrich: Well, I think it's time we get the stomach for that, Bill. And I think we need a program -- I would dramatically expand testing. I think we have -- and I agree with you. I would try to use rehabilitation, I'd make it mandatory. And I think we have every right as a country to demand of our citizens that they quit doing illegal things which are funding, both in Afghanistan and in Mexico and in Colombia, people who are destroying civilization.

Aren't you proud to have worked for such a great freedom-loving repub? Good times.

Here is what your former boss Newt Gingrich thinks:

Ugh...can't you make a damn point without having to use those techniques? Jesus, it's so old.

Just as proud as you are in your [uncritical] support for that freedom-loving demo Obama.

Maybe in your world having been an intern for a politician's staff means you endorse every last breath they expel. I, on the other hand, exist in reality.

Matthews is right. What in the f*** does Newt Gingrich have to do with the current horrible drug policies supported by your party, now in charge for at least 2 years?

What's next? Quoting Rush Limbaugh to me?

II just thought it might be interesting to you that a potential presidential candidate from your beloved repub party (and your former boss) suggests that we should "get the stomach" to have a totalitarian society in order to combat drugs.

Has Obama proposed anything that even remotely resembles that? No, of course not.

And, by the way, Obama sucks on a lot of things, including drug policy. But he is a hell of a lot better than your party leaders, like Gingrich.

If you had ever worked for Limbaugh aand said that you were proud of it, yeah, I'd quote him to you, too. But I'll try to avoid that, even though he is the leader of your party.

Obama is much much worse than Gingrich, and not just on drug policy.

Obama is a merging of Bush and Clinton, or as I think of Obama : Bullshinton.
