Legal Drug Trafficking? I hear it's lucrative!

"Go to treasury.gov and on the left hand side you can select from various offices within the fake department. Check out the Office of Foreign Assets Control. Dig around a bit, you will come across a program they operate in conjunction with the DEA and the Columbian government called the Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers. The treasury assists in identifying major trafficking rings by monitoring the various electronic monetary transactions and using some kind of metrics (I’m guessing) are able to tell if a business conducting its financial affairs in a manner similar to that of a drug cartel would operate with its front company. Here’s the kicker, If a cartel is identified, rather than shutting down the cartel and seizing what ever they can, charging those individuals that they have a case against, the treasury looks at how economically viable the organization is, the infrastructure and other factors, and if the organization is deemed “worthy” they decapitate the leadership but keep the organization operating and just replacing the leadership with a Columbian government agent. That agent is the “Specially Designated Narcotics Trafficker”. And here’s a bonus for all you U.S. corporations or businesses out there who feel like their not getting fair access to the Columbian drug trafficking market, you can apply on an individual basis, for a license to engage in commerce with a Specially Designated Narcotics Trafficker. You can download the application in pdf format, and return the completed forms to the Office of Foreign Assets Control, Department of Treasury Washington D.C."

and seriously, you'd have to be a nut job to think that The Constitution of OR for meant anything different, never mind if either is capitalized or of lower cases

pay no attention to any of this and get back to work trying to amend THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA to do away with CITIZENS UNITED.... or pissing up a rope, either would be just about as useful.
