    Another roach will take his place and will off another mayor or police chief. Destroying the narco plantations in South America and Asia will choke off an enormous source of income to the cartels. I'm not buying this Clear And Present Danger charade. The US and Mexico governments must do more.

    Sorry CNN, but I am going to Twitter and FOX. You all do too much censorship and I don't even use profanity. I am suspending your blog for 3 days. Other bloggers use the F word and they get posted. Makes no sense. Bye.

    If our government can spend every $ they have on the military and spend even more money helping illegals here and helping Mexico IF they spend enough our Dollar will be worthless and wont buy expensive Drugs in the marketplace-there problem solved-–and we can keep the cheap illegal "HELPERS" that we let work here illegally and then they will be even cheaper
