What could possibly go wrong? It’s good to know that our government is running one of the biggest money laundering operations on the planet for the benefit of Mexican drug cartels that have killed literally tens of thousands of people in recent years. The idea is that we can learn who the big players are by following the money. That’s great in theory, but where are the results? Any sane objective person would conclude that the answer isn’t to compromise ourselves by doing business with some of the most evil criminals on the face of the Earth, but to end the War on Drugs and take away all their business. But, no, no politician has the courage to do that. Well, maybe a few have the courage, but no more than a handful. Our country is run by cowards and imbeciles. Even the people who want to do the right thing don’t have the power to do it.
