What kind of birthday present do you give to one who should never have been born?

DEA Marks 35th Anniversary

The Drug Enforcement Administration was created 35 years ago on this date by President Richard Nixon, who through an Executive Order established a single unified command to combat “an all-out global war on the drug menace.” At its outset, the DEA had 1,470 Special Agents, a budget of less than $75 million, and a presence in 31 countries. Today, the DEA has 5,235 Special Agents, a budget of more than $2.4 billion and 87 foreign offices in 63 countries.

I was about to become a Sophomore in college in July 1973.
Since then, we have experienced 35 years of increasing lawlessness, corruption, global criminal drug enterprises, and drug-war-related terror, along with decreased individual rights.
Thanks, DEA, for making this world a more miserable place.
