Mexico’s profitable drug trade could be reduced to a mere trickle if California legalizes marijuana. [Drug cartels depend on illegality to produce high profit margins. Legal substances, unless highly taxed, are of no use to drug lords. However, Mexican and California politicians already are talking about high marijuana tax revenues. This will push up the price and make it attractive to continue smuggling to avoid the tax, so the endless war on drugs likely will continue either way.] Washington Post 2010 Sep 10 (Cached)
US: 9/11 Commission (the politically appointed group that buried information about the possibility of an inside job on 9/11) issues a new report warning of “homegrown terrorists” and lists potential targets as passenger jets, hotel chains, Jewish or Israeli sites and American soldiers.

Canada’s Green Party plans to introduce federal legislation to remove toxic fluoride from public water supplies, thus overriding local mandates. [This is a mixed bag of good and bad. Good because fluoride should not be in public drinking water; bad because, if the federal government can forbid it, it also can require it. Local control is a friend of freedom.]

Cuba: Castro says the old-style of Soviet Communism is not viable and no longer works. [Before jumping to the conclusion that Castro has become an anti-Communist, be aware that this is the same line advanced by Russia. By distancing themselves from the “excesses” of Stalin and the old-liners, they appear moderate and closer to the capitalist model. Don’t forget they still are dedicated collectivists with an affinity to Leninism. They are not defenders of liberty. Note, also, that the coordinator of the interview was a member of the CFR.] MSNBC 2010 Sep 8 (Cached)

US: The new Financial Stability Oversight Council, made up of 10 “regulators” from the banking cartel, now has the power to break up large firms if, in the opinion of the Council, they could pose a threat to America’s financial stability. [Two problems: (1) The Constitution does not give the Federal Government such power, and (2) the regulators are the same politicians and bankers who have created the present financial crisis. This is window dressing at best; totalitarianism at worst.] Washington Post 2010 Sep 6 (Cached)
