Drugs from Mexico imported to Chicago have nothing to do with politics. Say no more..



To think the global drug trade has nothing to do with politics is... I am not sure a tactful way to say it, but it has VERY much to do with politics, and vice versa.

There are too many layers of overt politics, economics, and a political underworld involved to be understood well by the general populace. It is an insidious and self-serving construct meant to perpetuate itself and flourish. Violence and misery are the expected by-products but are acceptable as its economic benefits for those who control a portion of the drug trade are tremendous. Governmental politics are a necessary instrument for possessing that needed control.

Drugs and politics are like cornflakes and milk - A minor commodity without that sea of corruption to float them in.



I was referring mostly to the implication of the politics of gun control that were alluded to immediately in this thread. As someone else pointed out, Chicago has very strict gun control laws, which in this case are ineffective.

I use to do volunteer work with a girl friend twice a month but last time we were almost robbed at gun point.

A ex vet stepped in, he scared the guy off.

Both our husbands are now saying, "No more in the city for you two".

As more people are getting laid off, not able to find decent work and all our jobs being insourced and outsourced, people are picking off each other.

All the while the Big S's sit in their gated communities and mansions with million dollars of security.

The wrong people are being picked off.

Some for drugs, some for vendettas all for money.

Things are getting worse in the City of Chicago.

They're really making it soooo obvious that "guns are the problem"
Ignoring the old adage: Guns don't kill people, people with guns kill people"

That is so true. I was in Hunters Point San Francisco..... A Korean dude being picked on by black people to whom he kept calling the the N word....... They beat him and beat him hard to which he crawled out and came back 10 min later in a stolen car and drove into the crowd. 1981 This happened and at that point I knew that cars would never come with warning labels!

Removing guns will only result in finding new ways of killing the masses. 911 (inside job) is a good example of alternative ways to accomplish the same goals.

OfHumanDecent we need you so STOP what you were doing!!!!

Hey these are gangbanging pieces of s%&@ shooting each other. This is what goes on in all big ghetto city’s, like Detroit, LA New York. The fact that it is put on the news every day is barack hussien obama's buddy rham is setting Chicago up for his big gun grab. He wants the people to get sick of hearing it, turn around “for the good of the children” and confiscate all the guns from the regular citizens. Then the only ones with guns will be the gangbangers. Only difference is they will drop the attention grabbing headlines everyday of "5 SHOT" "3 DEAD" "TEEN SHOT, and they'll show his 8th grade graduation picture that was taken 3 years earlier but, he's really a 19 year old gangbanger with a rap sheet as long as your arm. It’s all part of the plan.

So if obama gets reelected, is it sure that he gets a "majority" in the supreme court?

From where I'm sitting it looks like the US is gearing up to disarm its public for good. I wonder how many gun-loving Americans will give up their arms when the time comes?

Well, despite the bluster and posturing comments I've read on ATS and other forums, my prediction is 99.9% will give up their guns, when faced with lengthy jail sentences if they don't. And I for one can't wait for the day that bill is passed and America's love affair with instruments of death is terminated.

That's ridiculous. The recent shootings are going to force Obamas gun ban bill down the throats of congress. Every time their's a shooting more and more people want to ban guns. I'm just afraid that's what the government wants. With the Aurora, Empire state building, and trayvon Martin shooting they don't have much of a choice. The government is getting put ( or putting themselves) in a corner were they don't have much choice.

so i ask you...how many people in the united states need to be shot and killed before you would want something done about gun laws?....50,000...100,000...500,000..millions...or maybe what we want our country to become is that everybody that leaves their house has a holstered sidearm and a shotgun, or a rifle for those long distance threats.

Wow, that's just crazy..............I remember a thread from last week some time when somebody who lives in Chicago was saying that there has been over 5,000 shootings in the last 11 years just in that one city.........

Sad man...............

Probably safer living in Afghanistan..............

You don't see this kind of crap happening in Texas, not to this extent. Gang bangers even think twice before pulling a gun here. Chances are the person they try to assault is more heavily armed. ..and that's a fact Jack.


I'm not for gun control, in fact, i'm licensed, just haven't bought my guns yet. Anyhow, I don't think that's the big difference in TX. I think the big difference is way, way, way smaller cities, and lower population densities.

They must be clinging to their guns and bibles. Oh, wait. It's Chicago. Probably not a bible to be found for miles. And, those guns? I'll bet 99.9% of them are not registered or are stolen, Saturday night specials.

I see Chicago's ban on guns is working out well. In 2010 there were 32,885 traffic fatalities in the U.S. Why don't we ban cars again? In 2009 there were 152 traffic fatalities in Chicago alone. That's about 13 per month.

I'm am certain the Obama administration will use this to justify tighter gun control if not an outright ban on guns. We already know the Constitution is a hinderence to his agenda; that's no secret.

I dont know all the facts, but dont you think its strange Chicago goes nuts and then NY today?? Telepathic Link..or The Hive driving people nuts or what??


Read the article: victims were teens; some were shot from cars containing many passengers.
"Gangbangers" probably just another bloody Friday night turf battle in "chi-town".


But yes; I expect people will clamor to beat the "ban Guns" Drum,.
like every time there's "a shooting" publicized in the media.

Lets see:" The second amendment is "outdated";
the fore fathers never envisioned "military style weapons" in the hands of the populace...

The liberal chorus is inevitable;
.Yadda;yadda.

An armed Federal task force pulling "bed check" at 2300hours: (11P.m. for the inexperienced).

You WILL be in your very own" rack" and then mandatory lights out! The nice federal officer will lock your door on his way out.

Yeah take ALL the guns away from people who routinely obey the law! That'll fix it. Sheer Genius

Because the gun control laws in New York and Chicago are working so well, it would make perfect sense to extend them to other places! Unfortunately I see them trying to push the agenda in the future as well..

Exactly right! I was reading a few years ago that Britain had a bill before their house trying to ban long kitchen knives. Really? WTF!?! That kind of logic serves no one but the criminals.
