  • Beautiful lady, but I think it was probably hard for her to walk, BECAUSE IT SEEMS THAT SHE HAD BIGGER BALLS THAN A LOT OF FUCKING MEXICAN POLITICIANS.

  • Zetas are the worst. Chapo and his guys were never as bad as the Z's

    I've seen Chapo and the Zetas beheading one another in brutal back and forth cartel killing videos.
    The Zetas even got Chapos sister, mom, and brother in-law with beheadings.

    It seems the Zetas are the ones collapsing though. In the last few months they've lost Z-40 (#2 in command) and 2 or 3 of their best lieutenants.

    • @dietcokesucks Don't forget: your nation's idea of "help" is huge bombs and attack helicopters and warplanes and such. If you try to use your military to solve the Mexico problem, there will predictably be a bloodbath (a bigger one than it already is, which is saying something.)

      It's much easier to adjust your policy. It's your policy that causes the Mexico problem. It's your drug prohibition that empowers their drug cartels. The more advanced you get at "fighting crime" the More..

      Okay, we legalize pot - do we try to stop the coke? The heroin? The meth? Anything?

      What's YOUR solution?

      You're clearly an optimist. I doubt anybody buys a drug BECAUSE it's illegal, so they won't re-think that decision if you legalize it.

      I don't care about pot - and we can use the tax money it would generate for treatment centers, etc.

      But trust me - you do not want meth to be easily available. Believe every bad thing you've ever heard about it. I KNOW.

    • @SlimeyLimey for the condition of needing to move very quickly and talk alot .people are going to use drugs to escape reality or self medicate or many other reasons.by making it illigal it has stopped nothing .i talked to 2 dea agents about 4 yesrs ago at a social setting and they both said the war in drugs is a complete failure and has no chance to success

    • @SlimeyLimey Why would you be given a prescription for alcohol? I believe people have had this discussion many years ago.

    • @SlimeyLimey a professed dependency on those drugs. register the addicts, give them cheap drugs, restrict their operations of vehicles, and jobs available to them. allister crowley once argued in a treatise entitled "cocaine" that the best thing to do with people who cannot control themselves where substances are concerned is to give them as much as they want. to whatever end that brings. the only thing I agree with him on.
