Other voices: Call Mexico's drug cartels what they are -- terrorists

There are 1 comment on the TwinCities.com story from Apr 11, 2011, titled Other voices: Call Mexico's drug cartels what they are -- terrorists. In it, TwinCities.com reports that:

U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, gets it. When drug cartel thugs order mass kidnappings, explode bombs, murder scores of public officials, behead victims or hang them from overpasses, and post signs in border-area cities warning of more violence if they don't get their way, that's not mere drug trafficking.

"But McCaul's bill must not be used to label casual drug users as financiers of Mexican cartels, subject to terrorism prosecution simply for lighting up a joint."

That kind of sums it all up, doesn't it? If you clowns were SERIOUS about the problem, you'd literally destroy the customer base. Oh, wait! THAT would be an assault on the Free Market Economy AND the fantasies of quasi-libertarians. So much for personal responsibility, eh?

Burbach, do you ever READ these columns before you publish them??
