Mexico

John,

I say that because the boomers brought in the hippie thinking which I think has led to much destructive thinking with them and their children. Having said that, the generation that followed Wilson's income taxes and internationalism was pretty weak.

BTW, check this out. Just another reason Obama overthrowing Khaddafi was not just morally wrong, but, ignorant.

I'm really impressed with Christopher's younger brother Peter. And all of his topics there make perfect sense to me. Its good to know he isn't a fan of MacDaddy.

Also, you can read more about his 'enlightenment' of many things in his book, "The Rage Against G-d". I'm going to have to find a copy and read it.

This is very disturbing: Student massacre.
A Semi-official Criminal gangs would have massacred 40 protesting students with the help, or at the demand, of the local police.

Looks like lots of cops have been arrested though.

Terrible act and the victims were not just protestors, they were student teachers protesting X policies in Mexico apparently relating to teaching.

Hopefully, the arrests and eventual convictions will serve to the gain the attention of any other cops down there, we need some of this "justice" right here in the USA with the way lots of our cops are out of control. Our's generally wouldn't do this, but, they would murder single people in some instances, they have already.

I don't understand. This guy ruined the life of thousands of americans with his heroin trade, so why you can't just put him on the electric chair upon arrival, and turn on the power without useless ceremony?
Why does Mexico cares about his life? (el Chapo)

Watch this case closely. There is ample evidence the US and the Sinaloa cartel are partners, below are some links on the know data:

The trailer about "secrets of mexico's drug war" is devastating if you can find the entire documentary. They interviewed several American agents relating to how we sell them guns in return for info. I'm telling you, the United States is as corrupt as anyone else.

The one and only time Obama has used "executive privilege" over here was to hide this gun running program.

This is just one more clear example that proves my point that legislating morals never, Ever, works successfully.  The War On Drug has never worked, and it never will work, because there is too much money to be made under the table, and there are always those who will use drugs regardless the law.   It created a major industry that had no business being born.

The cost in money, and lives just aren't worth it all.  Had the US not made these horrible drugs enticing by being illegal, but tackled the problem from the other end of the equation, they could have held offenders liable for doing harm to others, and enforced the Rule of Law equally.  

Teaching morals to everyone,  and enforcing accountability for harming others, would have made drug addiction a very minor issue, compared to what is hidden under the carpet and unseen.

The Libertarians and C Progressives have been right on this all along.

I agree, but, you have to legalize/ de-criminalization drugs to stop the war. I'm for doing this myself.

Having said that, there are going to be problems that way as well as this way. Right now, we have an epidemic in ET on freaking legal pills.

My daughter just adopted a drug addicted infant and 2 more are in the ER with her son since then. The nurses told us they are being over run with this problem. He is at St Mary's and UT is supposed to be the hospital for this problem. They are full. Don't understand why ,but, a nurse from Atlanta told us it's way worse here than there.

Stopping the war will slow down violence associated with it, we still have huge problems even so.

Nothing is ever perfect.  But the Big Winner would be Liberty.  Remember, Liberty is more than just freedom.  It is "freedom, tempered with Responsibility".  And we are talking about adults here, not children/adolescents(sub-adults).  Everyone is accountable for his/her actions, not just to his/her self, but to others.  "Do no Harm" to others.  

This has to begin at "Day One" in school.  Children need to be properly educated.  And that includes courses in "Ethics", "The Law", "Morality", and "Philosophy".  And good history too.  George Santiana was right.  We don't do this, and it has seriously degraded our ethics in every day life.  

I'm a firm believer that the two most important parts of society for future well being are 1) The Courts; and 2) the education system.  The Left has almost total control of the later, and they are working on the former.  

And here is something that narrow minded moralists and Big Government Christians constantly overlook.  They concentrate on only the obvious, and never turn over the rocks in order to see what is buried underneath.  In other words, "The Unseen".  Frederich Bastiat wrote a famous set of essays about this very thing: "That Which is Seen, and That which is Unseen".  He will almost certainly be remembered as the most influential Frenchman who lever lived.  

People like Ron are continually underestimating the total costs of the "Unseen", which is Always higher than that which is in front of everyone.  This War On Drugs is costing our society untold hardships, because law enforcement can never take the place of teaching, assisting, and then letting those who stumble learn to pick themselves up and carry on.  Those, who learn from their mistakes are far less likely to repeat them if they have to pay the price of that education.  

Society should be there to help with the assisting part, and use the law enforcement part for the harm done to others, who were not helping the doer of that harm.  We are attacking this from the wrong direction and it is costing us many times more in "unseen" costs, both tangible and intangible.  

It believe its called "Tough Love", and it really does work, far better than anything else I know about.  S22

I really do agree wholeheartedly with every thought in this post. The consequences we don't foresee hurt.

At the ER, I asked a nurse why the mothers were not arrested for child abuse. "Because if they start that, the mom will abort the kid". There you go. I wised up after she told me that.
