Killing Mexicans for Fun

Thousands of Mexicans are dying each year so some Americans can have fun. There would be no narco-war in Mexico if Americans didn’t pay billions of dollars for recreational drugs. Everyone who buys illegal drugs is helping fund the slaughter of innocents in Mexico. It seems to me that that’s a lot worse than advocating deportation of illegal aliens.

Reading about the slow dissolution of the Mexican state in the MSM you’d have no clue that the money that fuels the private armies comes from Americans who buy drugs. Perhaps the silence is due to the liberal predilection for illegal drugs. When Al Franken--a Democrat Senator--can boast about his use of cocaine it’s clear that liberals don’t have a problem with breaking the law to get their drug of choice.

In any case I’ve yet to see any hand wringing by liberals over their complicity in the horror that’s going on in Mexico. It seems their compassion is only for Latinos in the US who may be able to vote for the candidates liberals favor.

To the extent that liberals have addressed the root cause of the Mexican crisis they tend to call for the legalization of drugs--usually just marijuana. The argument goes that if the US legalizes drugs then all drug related crime will go away. Presumably just as all organized crime went away after the repeal of Prohibition.

But even if that liberal meme du jour is valid clearly it’s wrong to buy drugs until they are legalized unless funding narco-terror in Mexico is considered to be ok. What is truly amazing, but sadly unsurprising, is the inconsistency of the liberal position.

While liberals boycott Nike and other companies for exploiting workers overseas they apparently don’t seem to see any problem with doing business with drug dealers. In the liberal world view under paying workers in the third world--even if the workers salaries are higher than what the workers could get from third world companies--is a horrible sin but killing mayors and policemen in Mexico in order to be able to ship drugs to the US is a reasonable business practice.

The liberal position is even more bizarre in that they continually portray themselves as the ones who care. In the lefts universe conservatives are for the financial exploitation of the world but liberals are motivated by universal brotherhood. Except when that interferes with what liberals want to do of course such as using drugs. Another example of that is that the same liberals who condemn the Catholic church for a small percentage of evil priests--as opposed to condemning the priests-- have no problem saying that Roman Polanski should be forgiven for molesting a child.

In fact the attitudes of American liberals on the drug war in Mexico fits the standard liberal playbook to a T. Liberals define culpability based on who the culprit is. It is impossible for a black man to be a racist but every white man is presumed racist. Illegal immigrants are forced to sneak into the US and hence can do no wrong. Blacks can riot when they don’t like a judicial ruling--i.e. the Rodney King case-- but can you imagine if whites had rioted when O.J. got off? In the case of Mexico the problem isn’t the massive funding that drug using liberals provide to the armies of narco terror, it’s the fact that the evil US won’t let any Mexican who wants to to hop onto the American welfare wagon.

Liberals have been the voice of “drugs are ok” in the US since the 1960’s. The root of modern liberalism--which bears little resemblance to classical liberalism-- was the drug culture of the 60’s that celebrated drug use and condemned soldiers. It’s time to call liberals to task for their support of the drug culture. It’s time to stand up for the innocent Mexicans that are killed every day to feed America’s drug habit. Imagine if the MSM and the ruling class talked about drugs the way they do about second hand smoke.

Liberals pull at the heartstrings of people in order to win their votes. Because the liberal position is generally simplistic it can be more easily packaged into a short phrase that can be repeated over and over until people absorb it without thinking. We need to turn the tables on liberals by holding them to task for the selfishness that lies at the heart of modern liberalism. We need to remind everyone that it’s the liberals unrelenting support of drug use that has established the monstrous drug-dealing establishment. If liberals were saying that we should legalize drugs but until then it’s wrong to buy illegal drugs they’d have a leg to stand on. But that’s not their position. How many news reports, movies, or TV shows have been made where using drugs is shown to be just fine and the cops are the bad guys?

Most Americans are saddened and worried about the mess in Mexico. They feel sorry for the many victims down there and they are worried about the violence spreading into America. Reminding the majority of Americans that it’s the liberals who, through their unending support of drug use, bear a significant responsibility for the drug wars will be yet another nail in the coffin of the chameleon that is modern liberalism.

Don't bail me out!

Sadly I have to admit I live in California. I'm one of the California 16,632,748.8, the 40% who consistently vote against people like Jerry Brown, a hostage in la la land. Fortunately I was raised in the Midwest so I know what living in reality is like.

In reality you have to pay your bills. You don't expect other people to do that for you. But that's what California will be doing if it asks for a Federal Government bailout. Why should the folks in states where they elect reasonable, or at least fiscally responsible, politicians have to pay for the mistakes of California?

Sure if there's a big quake I'd expect all Americans to help us. Just as all American's help New Orleans. That's what makes America great. But the California disaster isn't an act of God it's an act of greedy liberal politicians who use taxpayer dollars to buy votes.

California pays state employees really well. Some of that is necessary given the cost of living out here but basically the State Legislature spent money like it was going out of style during the recent good economic times, when Republicans controlled the government. Unfortunately they weren't satisfied with spending money they had to commit to spending money in the future. When the recession hit--during Democrat control of the Congress-- California had lots of commitments and too little cash.

Of course since Democrats run the place the State governments response to this has been to try and raise taxes. To understand how the majority of Californians think consider this. A recent article in a major paper said that laying of government workers was bad because it increased unemployment! The author apparently lacks an understanding of the difference between jobs created by the economy and jobs created by taxing the economy.

The government never makes jobs. It just takes money from businesses that would make jobs that make sense and instead creates jobs that further politicians careers.

So much as it pains me to say this when Jerry Brown our once failed and now returned governor comes imperiously striding into DC asking for a bailout tell him he has to wash the dishes to pay the bill.

The Pope didn't justify the use of condoms!

Ah that pesky media. Always distorting things to justify their position. In reality what the Pope said in an interview was that someone who is very promiscuous, the Pope used a male prostitute as an example, who starts to use condoms is taking a first step towards moral actions. The Pope clearly says that using a condom is not morally acceptable but taking that first step is a good sign.

In my mind what the Pope said is equivalent to saying that a drug dealer who stopped selling heroin but still continued to sell cocaine and crystal meth was taking a step toward goodness. Saying that would not be condoning the sale of cocaine and crystal meth it would just be saying that stopping the sale of heroin would be a step in the right direction.

Boycott Amazon!

In case you haven't heard Amazon was selling a how to guide for child molesters. When they were told about it they initially said that to not sell it would be censorship and they said they planned to keep selling it. A huge uproar developed and the book may or may not have been withdrawn--I'm not about to go searching on Amazon for a how to guide to molesting kids. According to the author Amazon is reconsidering if they should sell the book. In any case Amazon hasn't issued any sort of apology or discussion of how it will avoid a similar disaster in the future.

I strongly recommend you tell Amazon that you're going to avoid doing business with them until they come out and say that they will not sell literature that encourages raping children. I went to my Amazon account and sent a message to customer service. You can also find a page on this on Facebook and there is at least one petition out there you can sign online.

When they get into fights coots use their huge feet to actually run on water.

The nanny liberal

When I was in high school back in the 1970's I made a major discovery about liberals. They think they know more than the rest of us and that they have been anointed by evolution to run the lives of us mere mortals.
We can see that now in the aftermath of the recent election. On the most obvious level the liberal superiority complex, and its racist element, can be seen in the passing of a law by the city of San Francisco banning toys with "unhealthy" meals. Who do those stupid parents think they are? Interestingly one of the rationales for this law was the epidemic of child obesity, "...especially in minorities...". I guess liberals think that non-whites are too stupid to decide what their children should eat.
On a less obvious level the liberal world view can be seen by the way they spin the election. It wasn't that Americans didn't like what liberals have done but that Americans just didn't understand how wonderful the liberals have been to us. We didn't vote Democrat because we're too stupid to understand the complex reasoning that supports the liberal agenda. But the president has made it clear that he got the message. He'll spend more time explaining to us why we're wrong.
Out here in la la land--California-- the San Jose Mercury News has an editorial that admonishes Obama for being too upset about the election and then tells him to revive his agenda. I suspect if the Republicans had been as massively repudiated as the Democrats just were the Merc--no they don't take pay to fight wars, they fight for liberalism for free--wouldn't be telling them to keep on keeping on. But being liberal means never having to doubt you're right so good liberals like the Merc know that they just have to continue to fix the sad broken lives those of us who believe in individual liberty, traditional morality, and fiscal responsibility live.
