Mycoherbicide Redux

U.S. Congressmen Declare Biological War on South America in New Antidrug Proposal

The Dr. Strangelove fringe of the drug warrior lobby is at it again. Dan Burton and Mark Souder, both Republican Bible Belt U.S. Congressmen from Indiana, are amending the drug czar office’s budget in an attempt to breathe Congressional life into a moribund Frankenstein’s monster scheme. They want to revive mycoherbicides (toxic fungi that kill plants) for use against drug crops. Even U.S. government drug enforcement officials have rejected the proposed mycoherbicides because of their toxicity to humans and the environment. Their use has also been banned throughout the Andes by the governments there.

  • It is clearly evident now that these irrational fuckers are willing to destroy the entire earth and all its inhabitants in order to eradicate plants.

    If there is a hell I hope these two bastards get assigned to the room where they have to stand on their heads in shit....or some worse fate perhaps.

  • It is so unfortunate that the most common trait among so many of our elected officials is simply aggression. They can successfully fight their way to office, but when they get there, these pathetic people have no insight, they have no real intelligence and they have absolutely no business making decisions that can affect our nation and our world.

    According to the Rand Rand Drug Policy Research Center only 23% of people who tried heroin became addicted to it. The addiction numbers given by Rand for cocaine is 17% and for marijuana it is supposedly 9%. (In truth, pot is about as addictive as cabbage.)

    Even if you accept the Rand numbers, it is obvious that most people who try drugs do not become addicted to them. Most people simply know better!! Those who have addiction problems have other problems that lead them to addiction. The drugs did not just jump out of the plants and attack them!!

    So why go to all this trouble and put the planet at risk to try to eradicate 100% of some plant species because these plants are sources of chemicals that some people choose to ingest? Maybe it is because those people who choose to ingest these plant drugs do not think like the Bible Belt congressmen and their constituents. Isn't it really about the "Culture War"? Isn't is really about discrimination and intolerance? Isn't it really STUPID?

    Our nation desperately needs brilliant, educated, inspired people in public office. Where are the Thomas Jeffersons of our era?
