The Drug War Is Doing Just Fine

Yep. The escalation of the drug war in Mexico is definitely doing just fine. Even after government promises of more security following the discovery of a mass grave holding the remains of 72 Central and South American migrants last summer, also in San Fernando, Tamaulipas remains a state that experts describe as ungoverned — or […]

Via The Sunday Independent: In papers filed at the court, the police say the need for discipline was the main reason for the change in rank structure. However, the union […]

Just What We Need

Unsurprisingly, a WaPo opinion columnist thinks that we need to really commit to more war in the War on Drugs™. You know, because over 40 years, an untold number of deaths, trillions of dollars, and zero effect on drug use (which doesn’t even question the idea that keeping people from getting high is a morally […]

It’s comforting to know that while the TSA is fondling people who don’t want to be ogled by their security thugs, and rifling through our belongings under the guise of “security”, they’re busy protecting the privacy and identity of one of their screeners who was caught falsely claiming to have found cocaine in people’s luggage […]

Despite some potential misgivings about Rand Paul as a candidate, I will be voting for him for the simple reason that every law enforcement agency in the state has sided with Conway. If cops unanimously support a particular candidate, surely said candidate is an immoral statist ready to use cops violently in order to support […]

Big Brother is (Still) Watching

What was it I heard about the abuse of federal power with eavesdropping and such from the terminally libertarded before Obama started doing it?  Many of the comments in the Times article are in support of this action as being necessary for whatever-the-fuck reason, but I ask only this question to those of you who […]

Still Stuck on Stupid

According to the brand spanking new FBI crime statistics, we arrested a paltry 858,408 people last year for marijuana “crimes”, the vast majority of which were for simple possession.
