USA Today has an article online "He ro in's Hidden Journey into US". It states nearly all he ro in coming into the US comes over the Mexican border.

Our fearless leaders in Washington seem to have absolutely zero interest in quashing illegal immigration. Everyone whines about he ro in use, but no one will address how it's getting here.

And so does the war on terror.-Nobody

As far as I see it, the biggest laugh about both of these "wars", is that it is an excuse to "narrow down" Rights/Freedoms all in the name of keeping us safer. Most of the time, if one speaks out about say searches/seizers, you run the risk of being labeled sympathetic, weak on such war. It at times gets twisted around as though you are sympathetic to drug dealers, and/or terrorists. Hope you had a super Fathers Day!!-Scott

Cave: Also, by the early 1990's, with our help the Taliban eradicated the poppy growers in Afghanistan. And then we took the Taliban on in 2002.

The result: The poppy growers are back and bigger and stronger than ever. And by default, the US supports them. Thus, the terrible inrush of Hero1n over the last 12 years.

As I said before, the "war on drugs" makes for some very strange alliances.

We basically have no southern border any longer, the current administration has no interest in stemming illegal immigration, Mexican and Central American gang members come and go as they please, so please enlighten us: just how do you propose stemming the tide of he ro in?

As far as dealers go, when we catch them, we could confiscate their drugs, guns and money, then drop them off in their home neighborhoods with just the clothes on their backs. Why bother arresting them? It just costs more money. If they end up back home with no profits or product, the problem will resolve itself.
