Sadly, it is obvious that those countries our politicians "help" the least that grow most independent. For 40 years US delivered billions of dollars in tribute money to Russia, but not to Red China. It was only when Russia went under and tribute money trickled to a halt that it began to find firm footing in the economic world. Meanwhile China emerged into a giant big enough to founder the United States; all it has to do is call in its loans and exercise its options. Just recently Obama was caught arranging investments that will make it easier for China to invest in US real estate. What is Congress doing? Mumbling and scurrying to determine how they can get rich by "investing" in these unique opportunities.
As our young nation once declared: "Millions in aid, but not one cent in tribute." Of Shakespeare offered a rosier definition of aid money centuries before that. Billions of dollars flow into Mexico every year from illegal aliens but Washington wasn't making enough out of it so it was decided to send billions more dollars straight to the politicians in Mexico "in order to contain the flow of drugs into the United States." Isn't it strange that Mexican paved drug supplies have literally exploded?
Lately President Obama has "reluctantly agreed to furnish some troops to halt the flow of drugs through our Southern Sieve. He has even "reluctantly" allowed the media to record the "successful results" of this deployment. Isn't it strange none of this happened until election year?
We also have the CIA and the FBI and HOMELAND SECURITY infiltrating the drug cartels. We can be sure this is working because in spite of "the effort," drug trafficking and drug addiction in the United States have not dwindled and drug-related violence in Mexico and Colombia is on a sharp, spiking rise! In other words, US is now "helping" the right people.
To see what is happening today just take a glance back down the corridors of time about 50 years. Once upon a time the Border Patrol was relatively successful in deterring the invasion of America, so funds were cut and equipment forced into obsolescence. The U.S. Marshal's service was given a crack at the game and doggone me if they didn't have the audacity take a bare handful of men and extract the president of Panama right out of his own palace! That sealed their fate, didn't it? Have you heard of them being allowed to perform any more missions? No, they're pretty much restricted to guarding judges again.
Homeland Security to the rescue; but first their wings are clipped to "observations" of how contraband is being smuggled into the U.S. They are given the best of good gifts to establish good surveillance of how contraband is "now" being smuggled in. And if some poor Border Patrolmen get too successful at what they have always done best, then slap them in jail for exceeding the speed limit! We'll teach THEM, by golly!
Well, if US has Homeland Security setting up Saturday night cookouts on the Mexican border you can bet all the little popguns in America that the actual big drug push is happening somewhere else. For comfort and ease I'd suggest anywhere in the South that submarines can land -- Coastlines in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and perhaps as far over as Florida. With $18 billion plus their usual illicit proceeds, the drug cartels can build lots of submarines.
The United States has only five percent of the world population but it is home to 17.5 percent of all drug addicts. Isn't it strange how these numbers precisely parallel the successful invasion figures of our illegal aliens? So, let's turn our preponderators on Mexico. Ever since Homeland Security began its humorous observations on the Mexican border there has been a sharp increase in drug-related violence across the US as the war against the Mexican drug cartels reaches catastrophic levels of violence. That violence is now being heaved across the border into the United States. Some border towns on the Mexican side have turned into literal war zones, with the Mexican police fighting for control with drug lords and their cohorts armed with military-grade weaponry.
Where are those sophisticated weapons
coming from? US.
The one thing drug addicts can't do effectively is
fight. What they do best is party. Look deep
into the eyes of Mexico. Velas Vallarta, is
obviously one of the safest places to stay in Mexico. As
a prospering resort in the town of Puerto Vallarta,
Velas Vallarta has thorough, tight safety standards and
a specialized security force dedicated solely to
assisting tourists. As a result, Velas Vallarta and the
surrounding town of Puerto Vallarta have an incredibly
low crime rate - much lower, in fact, than those 230 US
cities have been listed as places the Mexican drug
cartels have set up shop to distribute their drugs and
conduct their criminal activities. The closest cartel
activity was over 200 miles away from Puerto Vallarta.
The one thing drug addicts can't do effectively is fight. Even though drug addicts are so addled they come into department store dressing rooms to get high US can't catch them. Druggies smoke up in the rooms then ask for assistance, making it impossible for clerks to avoid exposure to a substance they would normally flee from. Can you say head swirling, heart racing contact high? Obviously, what drug addicts do best is party. By giving volunteers a 30 day party plan vacation in Puerto Vallarta US won't need to have sober-minded FBI agents struggling to infiltrate all the drug cartels in Mexico, all they will have to do is set up sting shop operations in Puerto Vallarta -- and wait!
When President Obama flew to Disney World to have his picture taken, he has perched his political coat tails on the rail of initiating plans that will help US capture more of the world-wide tourist dollars floating in from Brazil and China. It's easy to see why. Even in spite of all its drug activity Mexico now ranks 7th in International Tourist Arrivals; or is it because of all this drug activity in Mexico?
Anyway, Mexico's tourism industry has recently been directly responsible for generating 1.9 million jobs that should have belonged to US. Meanwhile, we have LOST another 25 million jobs to illegal aliens reaching US through Mexico. Gee, you'd think America would have wised up back when Obama was first elected.
