I didnt know this: "[Vincente] Fox signaled readiness to take on the drug cartels, but plunged them into a power vacuum by arresting their leaders, and gangs have been battling each other for territory ever since."

If we refuse to stop doing drugs here in the US, is the only alternative to legalize them? Legalize cocaine and heroin?

We should legalize drugs, regardless of what's going on in Mexico.

But our government, whether it's being run by George Bush or Barack Obama, is not going to give up that much power.

Stick them on the borders and see the Cartels

Yeah - let start bombing right away!

Jeez, did I just say that?

I feel drunk - like I've been programmed to react with fear and hatred by a media outlet ...

Oh but that couldn't happen here, could it?

Ok, is this "They Live"?

I'm getting a headache ...
