If you ever wondered whether the righteous "Drug Warriors" wanted kids to become the next drug criminals to keep the pipeline filled, you can stop wondering. I mean hey, the Drug War is a $20,000,000,000 (give or take a couple of billion) a year industry, it can't be just maintained; like all industries, it must expand.
Thanks to Little Miss Everywhere, Michele Malkin, for pointing me over to PunditGuy's "Cooking Meth 101"
"Our Tax Dollars At Work. And people wonder why parents choose to homeschool their kids..."
Original story here at Komo TV from the Seattle/Tacoma area:
"ELMA - A local woman went 'through the roof' when a deputy took his anti-drug message to high school.
She says he showed students how to make methamphetamines, and she has the video to prove it.
Grays Harbor County sheriff's deputy shows class, "And the reaction will start occurring down there and start bubbling up."
It is part chemistry class and part drug enforcement as a member of the Grays Harbor drug task force talks to Elma High School students about making Methamphetamine.
Deputy shows class: "Then you'll have a little bit down at the bottom, the white stuff, and that's your meth."
One parent considers it a recipe for disaster. ..."
Ya think? Not for the Warriors. The War costs BIG bucks, and the Warriors are allowed to help fund themselves by seizing peoples homes, cars, and cash. Even if they never charge the owners with a drug crime, they do all they can to try NOT to return what they've stolen.
Of course "The Elma Schools superintendent says the district will also review the material but stands by this effort to educate the students. ..."
And in all fairness "The sheriff's office says they don't give specifics about the recipe and they emphasize how explosive the process is."
But come on, don't you think this might inspire an extra kid here and there to find the missing pieces to the magic puzzle? The Pacific Northwest is known as a problem area.
Then, when the kids' meth labs explode in their parents' homes' basements, the Cops can come and still sieze the land, even if the house is destroyed. Good chance they'll get to keep it too, even if the parents are never charged.
Seriously, the Warriors want all people to stop using drugs so they can update their resumes and get new careers, they want to be made obsolete.
They don't want the focus of the war to be changed from enforcement to treatment, they don't want to have to retrain to become "Drug Treatment Officers", that's too touchy feely, they want to remain Warriors, it's much more exciting.
Tons of people are employed by the "Drug Fraud" effort, and quite a few are GETTING BLOODY RICH from it. They deserve employment and opportunity too. This is America after all.
