2. I am overwhelmed by the dissodence I feel from this talk

The Professor looks at gangs of super murderous thugs and analyzes their "business approach" and speaks so highly of them...meanwhile Mexico bleeds horrifically. True about our Gringo Demand Factor and perhaps that will be in the past a decade or so in our future, when legalization efforts bring more states or even national oks.

3. The U.N.

The U.N estimates the USA has 55 million illegal drug users. One in six of us funds these cartels.

Drug Prohibition is a failure and an abomination and an engine of unnecessary human misery.

So naturally our DEA should go after MD's in medical marijuana states and harass them with loss of medical licenses!

Just fucking great

4. OK, when he was giving the number dead from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars,

he gave US deaths, not total deaths, and compared it to Mexican deaths. Not a fair comparison without counting all the war deaths.
