Sophisticated drug tunnels found in desert

Drug Tunnel found in 2012Reuters is reporting that the San Diego Tunnel Task Force has found two different sophisticated drug smuggling tunnels in the desert between Mexico and a warehouse facility in San Diego, complete with ventilation systems and railways.

Enabled by our War on Drugs, well-designed tunnel systems that travel underneath the U.S./Mexican border enable the transport of large quantities of drugs between countries.  Tunnels usually connect with innocuous-looking buildings to avoid unwanted suspicion.

U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy said of the incident that “going underground is not a good business plan”.  In actuality, going underground is the only business plan to avoid the expensive and ineffective drug enforcement laws instituted within the United States.

The report said that in the past eight years, the feds have uncovered at least 80 different cross-border smuggling tunnels – California and Arizona serving as the more popular entrance points into the country.  This, of course, only scratches the surface of the true physical network of drug-enabling systems into the U.S.

For every tunnel found, dozens more exist.  How much money does it cost to plan and execute surveillance programs that seek to uncover drug tunnels?  When virtually any middle-school aged student can get their hands on drugs, we must ask ourselves: is it worth it?

Is it worth it?

Video shows Americans eager to support “Orwellian system”

A video published to YouTube shows a good number of “average” Americans eager and willing to sign a [satirical] petition that advocates a Nazi-style “Orwellian” system of government to supposedly keep the American people safe.

Political prankster Mark Dice asks random San Diego beach-goers to sign a petition to dramatically increase Nazi-style “measures to keep the community safe”.  Dice makes the satirical case that the government shutdown not only cut back on funding for national parks, but has also cut back on funding for the police state.  Signature after signature, Americans willingly sign their name to a petition to implement Orwellian style control over the American people.

Dice is seen laughing and shaking his head after people continue to blindly support his satirical push to essentially bring fascism to the United States of America.

“We just want to model it after the Nazi Germany system to keep people safe and secure,” he said to one beach-goer.  “We need this Orwellian-style system to keep everybody safe,” he says to another, who responded to Dice in the affirmative: “Yeah”.

Mark Dice’s previous YouTube videos show Americans supporting a wide variety of destructive causes, like repealing the entire Bill of Rights, repealing the First Amendment, the confiscation of guns from every Tea Party member and adding birth control drugs to the water supply.  Another video showed Mark Dice convincing random Americans that Vice President Joe Biden is dead.
