So, I've been checking out the ads shown at the superbowl this weekend,
because that's about the most interesting bit. (Neither a Patriots nor a
Rams fan.)

So, I happen to see the following message (paraphrased) from the White
House Office of Drug Control Policy:

"If you use drugs, you're putting money directly into the hands of the
(it was one of those Mastercard "priceless" style ads).

So, I wonder what the White House Office of Drug Control Policy was up to
in May 2001?


Paraphrasing again:

In May 2001, Colin Powell announced $43million for Afghanistan's Taliban
government to burn some poppy fields, effectively becoming the majority
sponsor of Taliban terrorist activity in 2001.

Does everyone still remember September 11th (and I mean the *four thousand
dead people* still under half of what used to be Manhattan's skyline, not
the fucking idiotic "war" scripted to fit into daily 5 minute chunks on CNN) ?

American tax dollars paid for the training that those terrorists received.

So, patriotic Americans are told "don't buy drugs because they fund
terrorists" whilst the government tries to forget that, in attempting to
curb the flow of drugs out of Afghanistan, they put even more money into
terrorist hands?

I don't know what drugs Bush's administration are on, but I sure as hell
want some.

Sorry to bring this up again, but I find this sort of hypocrisy utterly
