For all our military might, we have been unable to win the war on drugs, the war on terrorism,
I'll agree with the War on Drugs, but the War on Terrorism? Last I checked, the US has not had an attack against the "homeland" since the formation of the Department of Homeland Security. (and the start of the rather poorly named "war on terror.")
I'd call that a pretty reasonable success.
You agree with the War on Drugs? Why? It's a farce. It's an extension of the Prison-Industrial Complex. So long as anyone isn't harming anyone with what they put in their body it's no one's goddamn business. You can't say booze and legal drugs are ok, but not pot, etc. Like everything else in this world most people can handle their shit. If we made everything illegal because of a handful of assholes who can't than nothing would be legal.
And Homeland Security? Are you fucking kidding me? A handful of religious sheepherders drive 2 planes into buildings and that justifies a trillion dollar intelligence apparatus in which you're stripped of your liberties in the name of safety? What about Timothy Veigh and his inbred hillbilly right-wing fanatics? When has America ever been attacked by a foreign power? Japan in WWII and ever that's stretching it seeing as it was Hawaii - a land you took over and colonized by force. A handful of nuts have attempted to attack America and not one single foreign power - while the reverse is shocking in it's scope and depth and you say the DHS is a success? Shit man, I have some magic rocks that when I bang them together keeps tigers away. You don't see any tigers do you?
Creston, you're much smarter than that.
