US firms buy stolen Mexican oil

• AP
They bleed the fuel lines just about anywhere, drug cartel members and other criminals, sucking millions of dollars of Mexican petroleum from makeshift taps hidden in sheds or on remote desert stretches, with thousands of gallons ending up in U.S. refineries.

It would be nice if the U.S. decriminalized drugs, but whether it does or not it's time it admitted that the whole U.S.-Mexico border problem was caused by their 19th cent. white supremacist apartheid, and work to help the Mexican people finally dissolve their ever-corrupt fatcat and cartel controlled govt. and join the U.S. as the "51st state" (10+ states), making the U.S. bigger and better and setting a model for the world.

 Well, there ya go!

The US is always blaming Mexico for everything:  from the Great Depression to the President's dog getting heartworm, however, what nobody ever cares to accept is the fact that, without a demand from the US, the Mexicans wouldn't not be providing these "services" - It's a simple concept, really:  it's called "supply on demand."  It's also a very simple problem to fix, if Americans stop demanding these products (from drugs to oil), the Mexicans would stop supplying them.  End of the problem!
