Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Mexico's human rights commission, CNDH, reported almost 5400 thousand people as missing due to the activity of the drug cartels. So far, an estimated 34,000 people have been killed by the drug cartels. The drug cartels have out-manned and out-gunned the police. President Felipe Calderon has deployed 50,000 troops in the war on the drug cartels. Make no mistake, this is a war. The Mexican military so far has been able to hold its own. Some of the missing people may have migrated illegally to the U.S. (yes, I know that would hard to believe), and yet other people are believed to have been kidnapped. The United Nations has reported that several cases of missing people maybe related to activities of the Mexican army. In its infinite wisdom, the U.N. is urging President Calderon to stop using the army to control the drug cartels. So, let me get this straight: the United Nations wants Mexico to stop using the one effective force they have against the drug cartels, because a few people MAY have disappeared due to military activity. The U.N. can't even say if those missing were involved in the cartels. I guess according the the U.N. it is a lot better to have 30,000 people killed.
