#1  How's that war on drugs working for ya?
Posted by: Texhooey || 02/21/2020 0:08 Comments || Top||

#2  for the curious here's the Gang of 8 accounting for more than 75 percent of methamphetamine seized in the US in 2019:

DEA has identified eight major methamphetamine transportation hubs: the cities of

Atlanta
Dallas
El Paso
Houston
Los Angeles
New Orleans
Phoenix
St. Louis
.

Spot the pattern?

Mexico: failed state, exporting its toxins to the US.

#4  Open borders. Sanctuary cities. Drug trade is big business for Democrats.

#5  I'm a bit surprised that a city in southern Minnesota wasn't on the list. I seem to recall the meth coming up on 35 then moving east to Chicago.

#6  Open borders. Sanctuary cities. Drug trade is big business for Democrats.

Attempting to block the distribution of methamphetamine is racist!

#7  Virtually all methamphetamine in the United States comes through major ports of entry along the Southwest Border and is transported by tractor trailers and personal vehicles along the nation’s highways to major transfer centers around the country. It is often found in poly-drug loads, alongside cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl.

From the DEA website.

I thought most of the meth was made domestically.

#8  The precursors are regulated here, but not in Mexico.
Posted by: Frank G || 02/21/2020 10:45 Comments || Top||

#9  Denver is also a huge hub as it sits on a major north-south artery (I-25) and a major east-west (I-70) artery.

#1  Have to admit. I wonder about the Turk in the street and what he thinks about Yip-yip's wars of aggression/acquisition. In favor of new Ottoman Empire? Or just keeping his/her head down to avoid catching Gulen Flu?
Posted by: Mercutio || 02/21/2020 6:36 Comments || Top||

#2  Not in the stories: Why now all of a sudden the Ottomans are going neo-imperial? War as a distraction from domestic economic issues?

#3  Nguard, now that you mention it, it is redolent of Argentina's "Short Victorious War" for the "Malvinas".
