Female Narcos:  Beautiful…and Dangerous

For many years, women connected with the drug business were used for pleasure by the bosses.  In some cases, women are now using their intelligence to rise in their organization where they work.  Many work as street peddlers because there is nothing else and no other option to support themselves and families.  The money does not always goes to buy their own drugs.  One had to pay for protection while her husband was in prison, by smuggling in drugs to him to peddle within the prison.  She was threatened that it was the only way to keep him from being killed by the cartel.  Others fall in love with cartel members, which usually cost them their life eventually.  (Note: one woman was recently hung from a bridge, shortly after being arrested & released) There is no doubt that over the years the number of women rising in the cartels will increase, as there are more opportunities in the ‘workplace’.

    My hope for this year is that someone will appear on the national scene who will be the perfect candidate for President. This person will seal the borders between the US and the crime and corruption that lies south of our country. He will also cut off all funds to those nations. That should help the national debt. It will also get a boost when we send every illegal alien home. No one mentions the $350 Billion we spend on their upkeep. Instead, they plan to cut Social Security and Medicare to Americans. How can they allow this with a straight face? Before any programs for Americans are cut, let’s stop the handouts to illegal aliens and the countries who send them to us.
