Not only did U.S. officials approve, allow and assist in the sale of more than 2,000 guns to the Sinaloa cartel -- the federal government used taxpayer money to buy semi-automatic weapons, sold them to criminals and then watched as the guns disappeared.

Ah yes, the BATF (Bureau of Americans against True Freedom) not only broke the law, they used taxpayer funds to do so. I wonder how long before you see any of them on trial...don't hold your breath.

Heads should roll for this. If we aren't a nation of laws, then we need to quit claiming to be one while wrapping ourselves in the flag.

legalise and tax drugs: spend tax to fix people that pay for said drugs (much like health care for clinicly obease poeple) and the cartels are reduced to running a local baker (lol) if they want to stay in the game.

This is the new Amerika.

Those who presume to be in power utilize the funds they see as theirs as they see fit. The laws are made to apply to the average joe rather than to those who presume to be above such trivial verbiage.

Undoubtedly, this is working out for them quite well. A quick look at what the "Fed" has done to destroy the currency as well as the lack of oversight for any of the alphabet agencies would lead one to believe that there is no hope.

There is always hope. It may come packaged in a 185g round from 300 yards...but there is always hope.

Eventually the alarm clock will go off and the sleeping giant will awaken. While the giant sleeps, many of us will position ourselves so that upon its awakening those who have destroyed it will meet the one they think protects them. Their perceived benefactor is anything but that.
