I generally focus on issues relating to border security and immigration law enforcement but, on occasion, I do like to delve into other examples of nonfeasance, misfeasance and malfeasance committed by our government on all levels. Certainly this story provides an interesting opportunity to look at the sort of incomprehensible decision making by our political leaders but it also, in my view, has a nexus to the issue of border security.
At a time that our nation is purportedly fighting a “War on Drugs” and a War on “Terror” it is unfathomable that while the “food police” focuses on nutrition and excessive amounts of sugar and salt in the foods we eat, you would be hard pressed to find any public service announcements warning against the dangers associated with the use of cocaine, heroin, meth and other illegal drugs that are directly or indirectly related to the vast majority of crimes committed in this country and in countries such as Mexico.
Furthermore, the drug trade fills the coffers of the drug cartels, transnational gangs and terrorist organizations.
It is hard to believe that our government is indeed the government so eloquently described by President Abraham Lincoln when he spoke of a government that was “of the people, by the people and for the people!”
I hope you will be listening to my show!
