According to the underpants gnomes there are only 3 steps.


Though I'm sure I don't agree to the extent you do to what you pasted, I wouldn't argue against any of the links

Step 3: "Market" drug and drug violence culture in mass media. Promote the "virtues" of drug and gang violence culture
-> Results in higher gang recruitment and increased overall deviant and degenerate behavior in society
-> Results more arrests, more broken homes
-> Racism spreads from those on the "outside" of "drug and gang" "culture"
-> Results in divide within American society and turmoil
Step 4: Profit
-> Via privatized prisons
-> Via music industry
-> Via law enforcement/militarization
-> Via "news" media
-> Via tumultuous society focused on infighting opposed to true political issues, allowing broken pay-to-play political system to continue operating in background


Easy. And we're idiots for playing along

Yep....and the vast majority of the world's supply comes form of opium/heroin comes from Afghanistan. Since we've been there, production has more than doubled..
Big banks get caught laundering drug money and get a slap on the wrist.

I was watching that DEA show on Spike TV a couple years ago and an agent on there was bragging about how they caused the price of heroin to triple in certain parts of NYC.

What seller of any product is going to complain about making 3 times more in profit, especially when the consumers of your product cannot stop using it and will just commit 3 times more crime to make up the difference? Wouldn’t a higher profit margin encourage more people to take the risk and get into the business?

Why would the DEA want to win the drug war when that would put the agency out of business? We all know, or should, that both the DEA and CIA have been implicated in smuggling narcotic into the nation. I know, this was done as part of undercover investigations,..whatever...

The U.S. gets a lot of their opium from Tazmania. It is a fairly easy crop to grow.

When a SWAT or DEA team raid a household the first thing they do is shoot the dog. No matter if it is Marijuana pariphanalea or eating someone's face drugs. They can do better. Canadian police officers have found using fire extinguishers as a good tool.

#DogLivesMatter Over a hundred dogs were killed by police in Buffalo alone in the last Five years.

This was the case where a LEO shot an unarmed person in the back as they were fleeing and tried to claim self-defense prior to the cell phone video of bystander surfaced.

Former South Carolina police officer Michael Slager was sentenced today to 20 years in prison for the deadly shooting of unarmed black man Walter Scott.

U.S. District Judge David Norton ruled that Slager committed second-degree murder and obstruction of justice, when he shot and killed 50-year-old Scott in 2015. The second-degree murder ruling came with a recommended 19 to 24 year sentence.


Good to see justice served.
