Talk about Imperialism!

Did you know America's D.E.A. is "working" in Afghanistan to stop the opium trade? That's weird. Maybe that's only because we're occupying Afghanistan? I mean, is our D.E.A. in Mexico? In Columbia? In Russia? The world's police force, I guess...

Yeah, no joke. Thomas Jefferson is rolling in his grave. Can you imagine explaining to him "... uhh ... yeah we've got federal agents all over the world ... and military bases all over the world. Sorry about that. Your republic of virtue has taken on global security."

Really though, when did this start? I don't want to pin it on Obama -- this seems like something Bush would've done too. Obama's dealing with enough of my accusations that I'm taking him off the hook for this one unless I hear that he started this program.
