Since I have some knowledge of the history of taxes, I believe corporations should not be allowed any tax deductions for employee compensation over 1/2 million dollars, once that limit is reached, on an individual employee basis.
Drugs are even more licritive business in the U.S.:
Do you know the name of a single-American-drug-kingpin of our times?
In the US, the most coveted drug market on Earth, are there no outstanding drug Kingpins (whose names must now form a proud part of the criminal-legend of their country), when they deal in a drug-business worth over $500,000,000,000.00
I know! In the US, drugs are dealt “by themselves”.
The drugs are dropped off at the border by Mexican or Latin American “mules” and reach (as if by magic) the hands of consumers “by themselves”.
Of all the marijuana that is consumed in that country for example, 35% is produced in Texas, Arizona and California without the authorities ever finding a plantation, any drugs incinerated in public, or anyone being placed in federal prison and their assets sold at auction to the highest bidder.
I guess the marijuana was planted by itself, harvested by itself, distributed by itself and the resulting proceeds laundered by themselves...
Is this not truly amazing?
We never see photographs of American drug Kingpins arrested and covered in blue FBI jackets, hands and feet in shackles, wearing bulletproof vests and helmets, with a huge police escort to prevent an attacks on their life that could prevent them from informing of the identity and activities of their associates...
We publicly display the incineration of narcotic drugs as soon as they are found. Photos of heroic soldiers fallen while fighting thugs are published. We have pictures of former State prosecutors massacred at their doorsteps while engaged in private law practice after retiring from fighting crime.
The multiple and ostentatious properties seized from the Kingpins are a matter of public knowledge.
The efforts of Mexican soldiers to win this battle against the production and sale of drugs are evident.
Only that battle will hardly be won if in the US the unhampered sale of $500 billion dollars’ worth of narcotics in the streets continues with no one seeing or doing anything.
Nothing, no one knows anything...
Why doesn't anyone know? Very simple: because an incredible number of members of the State and Federal Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government are on drug Kingpin’s payrolls.
If nothing is done, and nothing is known it’s because from the Secretary of State on down, Governors, Legislators, Senators and especially Judges, journalists, police officers of all kinds, FBI and DEA agents up to and including the famous and not the least feared Border Patrol, everyone could be deeply involved with drug traffickers and making juicy profits just as they did during prohibition.
Even less now, when a group of thugs has more power than the State itself.
Never in the history of mankind has a gang of criminals had so much money as to enable it to buy authorities, journalists and whole countries if it so decided.
All this thanks to the US, who provides the dollars to make this possible.
What do drug Kingpins prefer in exchange for heroin, Mexican pesos or American dollars? It’s quite clear, isn't it? What sovereignty does a State have when a drug Kingpin can’t be judged in his country of origin because doing so could bring about the destabilization of the country with disastrous consequences for millions and millions of people?
Are we not facing a newfound power phenomenon in the hands of a single individual?
Where are North American drug Kingpins? Why not I start the prosecution of major drug traffickers in the United States?
This is good business for everyone. Everyone is involved.
Better, much better to blame Mexico, Central America, or Colombia for all its problem...
