And a good meal, first class medical care, vaccinations. You know, all that stuff our veterans aren’t getting from the VA.

There is no other country on earth who would put up with this nonsense, but we do. The Democrats and the GOPe see potential voters and cheap labor while the rest of us see it for what it is, the end of America as we know it. Our culture, our freedom, and our way of life.

Imports destroy another American tradition, mom and pop meth labs in the Valley. They have been brewing up Meth for decades, and now they will be out of a job. Stop the imports of foriegn liquid meth. Let our home grown Meth labs produce this valuable commodity. (Yeah a lot of Sarcasm here!)

There’s an ad link for “7 Concealed Carry Myths:” video that site. I just watched it, and though it’s long and the guy is selling a training course, it presents a lot of good information for anyone on self defense. Worth watching.

If you add up all the attacks on the US in their various forms and fronts, we are essentially in an undeclared war with Mexico.

That's actually the second stop, the first stop is to deposit money into the demonrat party bank account.

Law enforecement has been so busy busting the mom-and-pop home grown meth producers that they’ve opened up new markets for the international drug traffickers. The War on Drugs strikes again.

Your “immediate hanging, without trial” presupposes everyone knows they are “in possession of, or transporting meth.” Read the whole story. 16 year old kid thought it was apple juice - drank it and died. Don’t think he would have been that stupid - who knows why he was transporting it.

I have a cousin who was driving a car with her “friend” across the Tijuana border crossing when the drug dogs sniffed something in the engine compartment. Turned out the windshield washer reservoir was full of liquid meth. She was arrested and spent months in jail (bond set at $1M -she couldn’t make that) awaiting trial - telling them she didn’t know anything (though she now thinks her “friend” may have known). Finally got released when they figured out she really didn’t know anything.

There are plenty of bad guys running the show that can be punished, but also some innocent people that unknowingly are “in possession of...” this crap.

In a nation ruled by me meth *users* get one chance at rehab...regardless of whether they turn themselves in or are forced into rehab by a court...and if they;re caught with it after that rehab they're executed.Manufacturers and distributors (of even minute amounts) are executed for a first offense.

Points well taken .
i long for the old days i guess .
we should invade Mexico and yank out the systemic
problems from the roots...
We are an easy mark because we have become so soft ,
complacent and tolerant of the intolerable.

Of course...probably because the mom & pop shops don’t have automatic weapons provided to them, courtesy of the Obama administration.

Thanks for the ping.

"Thus is born the Medical Meth movement."
Methamphetamine was a medical drug before it was abused. It was created in the 1890s. The Nazis had their soldiers on it during World War 2. Hitler used to get it injected, as if he wasn't paranoid enough. It used to be used as a diet pill and is still used for ADHD.

The German army in WWII used methadone to keep soldiers from feeling the cold on the eastern front.

Lithium batteries are a favorite ingredient of crystal meth, at least according the meth addicts with whom I’ve been acquainted in recent years.
