Kinder Garden Congress

Drug Problem

Every year the United States issues a rating system for the countries of the Caribbean and Central America.

This rating is based on the estimated amount of drug trafficking that took place in that country for the past year.

They use this rating, in working out the proportions of foreign aid each country would receive.

Drug trafficking takes place in these countries to appease the illegal drug taking in the US. If the US did not have a drug problem, the trafficking would not take place. If the US could stop the drugs entering their country, the trafficking would not take place.

The US says that, for trafficking to take place in a country, the leaders must be corrupt.

This then, must logically equally apply to the US, only more so, as the amount the US spends per mile of border cannot be afforded by these poorer countries.

A large proportion of crimes in these countries can be directly contributed to the trafficking of drugs to the US. In other words, the US is paying the criminal elements in these countries and the nation’s police do not have the finances to fully combat them.

Instead of berating these countries, the leaders of the US should be apologizing to the innocent people for the death of their children to a US drug problem.

Grow Up


It is this same childish attitude of not having to try to solve a problem, if there is someone they can blame for it, which has brought the United States to the brink of a complete financial meltdown.

As long as they feel that they can blame someone else or something else, they seem to think that the problem is not theirs to solve.

They say a free market economy is best for the country, then blame fluctuating prices for the countries downfall. They cannot have it both ways.

Many European countries are facing hard times and some are even confronted with rioting on the streets. This is not because the countries are in debt; it is because their leaders are taking austerity measures, trying to reduce the debt.

Nobody would want to see rioting on the streets in the United States but taking no serious action to reduce the debt will only make the situation worse. That means that when action is eventually taken, the reaction will be worse.

By delaying action you are only creating a bigger problem to be solved and the harder the solution will have to be.

Ah, of course, by that time you will not be in office, so once again it won’t be your problem. You will have joined the top 20% that own 85% of the countries wealth.

Why is it acceptable, for the wealth, to be distributed so unevenly, yet the debt must be shared equally?

      There is a solution, but it requires a joint effort to not only reduce debt, but to stimulate investment into the future as the danger of great disparity between have and have nots will result in the disaster we all hope not to have to witness in our time.

      Politics breeds strange bedfellows, that's for sure. But we have in the U.S. a group of inbred idiots, probably from incestuous inbreeding. Thanks for the warning rafken but I think we are already aware of the problem,
