Mexican Drug Gangs and Las Vegas

By Paddy

While the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has helped regulate percursor chemicals needed to produce pure methamphetamine in the U.S., it has led to increases in its production in Mexico. So if the DEA has been helpful here in the U.S., one has to wonder why the Mexican government has not been so in Mexico (ever heard of bribes, payoffs?) – it’s easier to just blame the American consumer, that gringo, or does the Mexican government have a vested interest in letting the drug gangs control vast swathes of the border between the two countries?

Leading to over 50,000 violent deaths in Mexico over the past five years due to internal gang drug wars and the infamous WOD (War On Drugs. How do you fight drugs? They should be fighting the drug manufacturers and dealers instead – the blue green pills don’t shoot back!) the Government here warned us about travelling to Mexico last week. Guess what? The President of the United States decides to visit Mexico after declaring an amnesty plan for some illegals and is lauded by the Mexican president for his humane stance. Don’t you think the Mexican president should have been mortified at the American “official kidnapping” of all those illegals?

Jobless (toothless) American meth producers.

Anyway, it is the small time meth producers in America who will be jobless (not just toothless) – you see, here in the U.S., meth is prepared by using pseudoephedrine as the base (available in cold medication) whereas in Mexico, meth is manufactured using methylamine bought in 50 gallon drums. So guess who is going to come out on top in the war on drugs? Not only are we getting plenty of illegal aliens crossing the border but we are getting tons of 90 percent pure meth coming over and taking away our toothless meth producers’ jobs too. Unfair, I say. Totally unfair.

Las Vegas, of course, has another distinction besides Party Capital of the World – Drug Mecca of the World. Cocaine, too, is controlled by Mexican TCOs. The cost is lower, and availability is higher thanks to the war on drugs as it is in Phoenix, Los Angeles, Seattle and San Francisco.

Nose Candy

With street names like Gold Dust, Nose Candy, Lady Cane, Big C and many more, you would think these were rap songs without the “F” word and the words that rhyme with Glock. But this is usually Gringo talk among rich white retards with bleeding noses, and grandiose talk living off their parents’ largesse in upscale white neighborhoods in Vegas. So as not to be someone who discriminates – this happens in certain poor neighborhoods too, except there it is called crack – see how many words rhyme with that!

With reports of kids in high schools selling meth, coke and weed, I can see why our educators have banned students from having aspirin or Tylenol – aspirin can burn their little tummies, and Tylenol will surely destroy their livers long before they get to alcohol. Kudos to our educators; not only are they brave enough to face disgruntled parents with problem children but they must deal with drug pushers too. I say that enough is enough. Stop all kids from attending school, and there will be no more drug pushing in our schools. Bravo!

Export, Transportation and a Rolls Royce

From tunnels under the Mexican American border, cans of “Comadre jalapeños,” refrigeration units of tractor trailers, truckloads of fish (want to stand in the heat and inspect these? Since 2004, there have been over 200 convictions and indictments for corruption ), freight trains, specialized compartments in cars and on the backs of two-legged mules, the southwest of the USA has become a willing partner in export and trade with these TCOs.

Just to give you an idea of the money made in this export/import business, Zhenli Ye Gon, a Mexican-Chinese business man who supplied precursor chemicals to the Mexican drug manufacturers, spent over $72 million in a Las Vegas casino and was rewarded with a consolation gift of a Rolls Royce. Now how can you say the casinos have no heart and don’t care? They also help many of our politicians, you know.

Warning Signs

So far, in Las Vegas, we haven’t seen any warning signs put up by the Bureau of Land Management telling us “active drug and human smuggling area” such as along a 60 mile stretch of Interstate 8 between Casa Grande and Gila Bend that links Tucson and Phoenix. Neither have we seen any signs that say, “armed criminals and smuggling vehicles travelling at high rates of speed,” so I guess we are pretty safe, or do the authorities not want to scare the terrorists, er – tourists away?
