The war on drugs.

The timing is uncanny. Just a week or so after the death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman and a shit load of talking about heroin again we are told one of the bad guys in the drug business has been arrested by Mexican authorities. Surely more proof at how successful the war on drugs has been.

It’s not even worth mentioning who this drug dealer is because it won’t matter. Oh we’re all expected to believe the propaganda about how wonderful this is but why? It sounds like this guy was one dangerous asshole so I suppose prison is the best place for him to be but it won’t have one iota of an effect on the drug problem. I mean are we supposed to believe that the entire drug trade rests on this guy and that when caught it will all go away? Prediction: Things in Mexico are about to get real ugly.

This is nothing more than a golden opportunity for other aspiring drug kingpins. Expect plenty of bloodshed as various factions vie for control over the most lucrative drug route in the fucking world. No one is throwing in the towel on this plush market.  No one. I wonder what it’s like to be in Sweden or Denmark and look at how pretend to deal with things. It must look like a bunch of caged baboons flinging shit at each other. It’s an embarrassment.

The only people that benefit from the war on drugs are law enforcement, the private prison system, the private probation system, pharmaceutical companies and of course the multibillion dollar treatment industry that has a success rate of about 2%. Only an asshole would support the war on drugs.

You might not like drugs or prostitution or whatever for various reasons. That’s fine but you are in utter denial (to borrow a treatment term) if you think any amount of enforcement or punishment will deter people from these activities. It’s been around forever and will always be around. You won’t change that but we could at least have some control over it unlike we what we have now. I realize that in this bipolar nation we can’t decided if we be puritanical or licentious and that every fucking thing has some moral judgment attached to it. This is one reason we can’t get shit down so it’s not even worth my while to make the case for legalizing drugs.

Here are your fucking options assholes. You can have junkies under state control or you can have junkies under no one’s control with a multitude of putrid criminals running the trade, killing people and costing us billions. There are no other options. Keep in mind that the greatest champions of the war on drugs are people whose salary depends on them not understanding the problem. What incentive does the DEA have to eradicate all illegal drug trade?

It’s all bullshit and the war on drugs is nothing more than an elaborate and costly charade like almost everything in our society these days.  Once and awhile they catch someone or they jam up a supply of one drug to make room for another but they haven’t had any success if your measure of success is eradicating the drug trade. Not one iota. It’s another dog and pony show to keep the masses complacent and for the ruling class to make it look like they are actually doing something.  Some cunt gets on TV standing next to a million pounds of whatever they deem evil and the dumb cunts in this country give them a round of applause.


The only silver lining here is that the brats of rich fucks are dropping dead from ODs. Once nice white kids from the leafy suburbs start getting affected, well, then it becomes an issue to be dealt with. You know how that goes but I wouldn’t hold my breath on anything happening in my lifetime.

Very good! Out of curiosity, what time of day do you pen your stuff?

Rant said...

Rant writes only in the evening after he crushes a bowl.

He doesn't "write" anything. it's all cut & paste plagiarism from a born liar.

The war on drugs has helped me increase my deadlift to 1700lbs and my bench press to 1200lb.

You're fat again, aren't you?

Of course, he's fat again. That's why he's writing about all of this other nonsense that no one has any control over.

Leave the cynical essays on politics and life in the modern world to professionals who get paid to opine on such topics and, frankly, who do it 1,000 times better than you.

OK?

Enough with the phony high-school angst, Rant. You know your literary wheelhouse, bro! Let's talk working out and diet! Come on, man... summer is coming... we wanna look ripped at the beach for the babes!

Most cops are assholes.

Really?

The war on drugs is hopelessly misguided and has been doomed to failure since the very beginning.

Shocking!

Rant... you're better than this. Please write something that matters to someone.

Rant, have you ever masturbated on cocaine?

Michael Douglas said...

Yeah, and then he snorted it.

Wiley Gente, Spodekane WA said...

Rant, any tips on elbow tendonitis? Not getting it, just how to get rid of it. Willing to give up wanking if I can keep on lifting. All serious suggestions appreciated.

Your a fucking boring cunt

Philip Seymour Glass, running in Elysian fields said...

Man, that last spike fucked me up real bad. Fell pretty rough, like I'm dead or something. Hey! There's Billy Mays and David Carradine! Wait up guys, let's do some cock..I mean "coke"..oh hell, let's do both!!

Feeling pretty low bros, my best lady was diagnosed with rectal crabs today and it is harshing me out in a maximal way :( Pretty sure one of my best buds banged her at the last kegger my house threw. Very low. Hope he likes herpes, cause she has a raging case back there.

Alan Scwiegel, Gamma Beta, Stanford said...

Ronny, why don't you bang that dude's mom as revenge on him for back dooring your lady? That's what I do when a bro betrays me. If you can get her drunk, bring her back to the house for a pump-party!

Jammy Smythe, Christ College, Oxford UK said...

Hey Ronny, why not pack your lady's back side with Tartar sauce? That way you can enjoy the crabs as an appetizer!

Gordy Knot, admiring your work sir said...

Ronny, it's a relief that men are finally opening up about this issue after centuries of silence. You're the Rosa Parks of crabs man!

My ex-girlfriend, Pandora "The Explorer" had a fucking aquarium down there. Not just crabs, neither, but an oyster and some axolotl-looking creature that kept nibbling at my wiener and making a gurgling noise. She just said it was because of climate change and rising sea levels, and besides, they were her pets.

Well, I'm not the kinda guy to put up with that kinda shit forever, so after 17 years I just up and left, leaving the next guy to feed the goldfish (there were 3left).

Oh My God!! Thanks so much for sharing your story!! It makes me so happy to hear my own story being told through another person's experience - so happy it makes me cry! Rant is so awesome!! He delivered me from a life that was fully possessed by crabs - and has introduced me to so many people who need rescuing as well...and to stories like yours, that confirm the truth and reassure!! xoxo

^ This isn't some crabs 12-Step group honey. You got rid of your crabs - whoopee-fucking-do-for-you!

We've got real problems here, lady, like scrotal eczema, for example, and also, Rant. And knowing that they're the same problem doesn't make me want to scratch Rant any less.
