The New Improved War on Drugs

As we all know, the Drug Problem is the gravest problem facing America today. People getting high and having a good time, cancer patients smoking marijuana to relieve the nausea from chemotherapy — this is unthinkable in a Christian Nation!

So far, the War on Drugs hasn’t been very successful in spite of the trillions of taxpayer dollars we've spent and the Constitutional rights that we've trampled. But we will not be deterred. This just means we have to spend more trillions and stamp out even more of that pantywaist “Constitution.” We’ll apply everything we learned from Humpty Dumpty: More Horses! More Men!

Our knight in shining armor has finally arrived. Those crybabies in Iraq don’t want Blackwater in their own country?? That’s fine. Their loss is our gain. We can use those dedicated warriors right here in the USA.

We’ll soon be turning a corner in the War on Drugs. Treehugging potheads, you’ve met your match. Blackwater — along with four other private contractors — will be joining the War on American Citizens Drugs.

If you liked the DEA, you'll love Blackwater.

Anybody want our Constitution? We don’t seem to be using it any more.

So the company that is being kicked out of Iraq for excessive brutality is going to be let loose on Americans in America. Yeah, that sounds like a great idea.

These are the times when I don't miss my family so much. There are trade-offs in life.

Prague Twin: Yeah, it's pretty bad when Iraq turns out to have higher civil rights standards than the U.S.

Ooh! Ooh! Blackwater will be helping us with the War on Sense--um, Drugs? Oh yay! I was SO worried they were going to be unemployed for a long time and not be able to gas up their Hummers.

In other news, the city of Denver (in which I live) voted to make marijuana prosecution its lowest law enforcement priority.

Mile High Pixie: Yup, that's great news about Blackwater. I've been so worried about being terrorized by those wicked drug users.

I think a lot of cities (Seattle also) have made pot prosecutions their lowest priority. I just hope the DEA (or Blackwater) doesn't come storming in and tell these local police forces how to do their jobs.

Blackwater walks the streets of New Orleans today, carrying massive weapons.

Maybe that is where their war against Americans begins.

They might not have to come storming in. It'll probably come up from on high that all police officers are to be relegated to traffic duty only. Anything that might involve a gun, that's Blackwater territory now.

Where in the world is all the billions coming from to pay for this type of service.

It's just strange, the Blackwaters and other companies can fight the war on drugs with billions of dollars, but this President will veto any bill that helps this country infrastructure and the people of America.

His priorities are blowing in the wind and just as with his brothers book deal, he seems to make millions for some, on the back of the people.

Tom, I hope you'll join with me and others who are trying to post a marijuana prohibition or medical marijuana post on Mondays. We don't do it every Monday, but we try to do it as often as we can. This is an issue that needs to stay in the forefront of progressive bloggers. We owe to the hundreds of thousands who face imprisonment for something that wasn't considered dangerous until William Randolph Hurst and Harry Anslinger campaigned against it in the 1930s.

Thanks for the post. I'll be using it in today's Blog World Report.

Larry: Katrina was Blackwater's foot in the door; at least that's when I first heard of them. They were there to guard the wealthy neighborhoods against any of those icky refugees who might try to come in. I'm sure they're still there, bigger and badder than ever.

Randal: That's an idea. Where do these local police forces and city governments get off, setting their own priorities? The feds will show them how it's done.

Let's Talk: I have no idea where all this money is coming from. Since they won't spend a dime on the infrastructure or health care, I guess they have all this money left over for the important things: regulating our private lives and invading other countries.

Robert: Thanks for linking the post. I'll try to come up with something on Mondays. This is definitely an important issue. Not marijuana itself, but the fact that the government is spending billions of dollars and ruining millions of lives just because of a victimless "crime."

You know, if things get really bad here the Blackwater thugz might as well paint targets on their backs. No mercenary army fares well in a civil war. The rebels despise them and even their "allies" usually have no use for them.

Jolly Roger: That sounds about right. As jaded and sedated as Americans have become, they won't put up with an occupying army, whether it's from a foreign country or an American contractor.

Robert, I like the idea of Marijuana Monday. I'll try to remember to post on that subject next Monday!

You know, reading this made me think: When was the last time Bush took a piss-test? He's been making so many idiotic decisions, maybe he's just really, really high?

Here is a really fun and entertaining article about Blackwater:


Not only will we need Blackwater to keep us from smoking joints or whatever, we will also need them here to police our speech, so that if we speak out against Bush in public they can do with us whatever they like. Can't you just see them taking on the group of four women Keith Olbermann mentioned tonight on "Countdown"... they are a bridge team (that's right, card players!) and their team is getting suspended because one of the players held up a sign in the team photo that said "We didn't vote for Bush". Pretty silly, isn't it? I thought that kind of crap ended a couple or maybe three years after "9-11", but I guess not.

Mauigirl: You're right, this isn't a good sign.

Kip: God knows what they'd find if Bush had to take a piss test. If our drug laws were enforced equally across the board, a lot of VIPs would be doing time.

Snave: Ah yes, Blackwater will save the day. Drugs, anti-American speeches -- we need a strong father figure and Blackwater fills the bill. I'll check out your link; I've seen some good stories before at Capitol Hill Blue.

Lizzy: Yup, this is quite a beginning.

Snave, thanks for that. It's not even 8am and I already feel like punching the monitor.
