Unfortunately you can lay a good portion of the blame for Mexico's murder rate on US drug policy.  It enriched and empowered the drug cartels. 


You seldom disappoint with your rational approach to such issues. We must disagree on something but lately I've had trouble finding.

Actually, I'm not actively trying. Finding agreement is much more satisfying.

We should have learned from Prohibition.

You mean we shouldn't blame the people that were machine gunning each other down during Prohibition either?

They were swell folks who were forced to go bad in order to take advantage of an opportunity to get rich?

I can bash Mexican gangs without fear of Donat advancing me to #1 on his "Biggest Racist of Modern Times" list?

What if I bash the Mexican government too? I'd kinda like to be #1 in Donat's eyes...

Donat needs to tell me more about the "Mexican race" first. Cheesy

Just cross the line to overt racism the way you did when you referred to orientals and you'll find out real quick.

Your safe hinting is just babbling and does nothing but making sure you maintain your current position.

Does Don really think Mexicans are a race?  I suppose he thinks Muslims are a race as well.  BTW, Don, I think Muslim immigration to the West should be slowed to a trickle.  Do I get to be at the top of your list now?  They're raising the crime rate in Europe, not a good thing.  We don't need all the terrorism they bring.

Absolutely, blame the murders for murdering but some policies have predictable results and we should blame policy makers for bad policy and understand their role in the violence. If you want a less violent society, don't prohibit drugs or alcohol.

MS-13 is not a Mexican gang by the way.  Its a US and Central American gang.

In Donat's mind, it doesn't matter, they are all of the "Latino/Hispanic race", just like Laotians and Han Chinese are all of the "Asian race", who BTW have the Right to name their band The Slants if they want to (except the name is already taken and copyrighted...)
