I guess it's a good news...

...bad news thing...

On the one hand, its patients are all policemen. On the other hand, those policemen are no longer on the street, trying to feed heroin and opium addictions that can easily cost triple their official salaries.

The country still supplies 90 percent of the world’s heroin.
Hmmm... sounds to me like a country that still could use a little bit of adult supervision.

For their sake and ours.

RELATED: Obama's non-war on terror...

...claims fresh victims...
It intends to acquire 4.9 acres of border land on a dairy farm owned for three generations by the Rainville family. Last month, the Rainvilles learned that if they refuse to sell the land for $39,500, the government intends to seize it by eminent domain.

“They are trying to steamroll us," said Brian Rainville, 36, a high school government and civics teacher whose grandfather bought the farm in 1946 and whose parents and two brothers run it now. “We have a buyer holding a gun to our head saying you have to sell or else."
Isn't this the same President... who just reached out to Hamid Karzai's drug-dealing brother?

Good grief.

Last time I looked, illegals were not using border crossings in any great number to get to the US from Canada; instead, they pick backwoods areas between the formal crossings and go through there.

This is just arrant nonsense by an overpaid urban bureaucrat who looks at a field and thinks 'development' not food.

lemme see if i understand this.

president mcdreamy has banned the use of the phrase "war on terror" so as not to offend our muslim brothers... but he's okay with destroying this family's shared farm holdings?

gotta have priorities, i guess.
