I hope that all Americans applicate your statements in Mexico admitting that we, America, do bare responsibility for the state of affairs in Mexico. How exactly though, will the proposed solutions fix the problems? So far I've heard that we will be providing Mexico with aid (mostly as I understand, for police and military), or further "securing" the boarder solve these problems. Isn't it true that the boarder can't possibly be secured completely, and that no amount of aid and change the fundamental problems causing such crisis. You said that the American people's addiction to drugs is what fuels the cartels, but doesn't the cracking down on the boarder, and the enforcement of strict U.S. drug laws, precisely the thing that makes the price of those drugs rise higher and higher? Is it not true then that the higher the prices become the MORE incentive the cartels will have to do business?

Well I have tried this and every channel Greta suggested and cannot get in. Is it possible that Hillary's people have crashed the system? There are 18,000,000 of us in the U.S. alone. How many more in Mexico are trying to watch?

Greta says they call her by her first name like Cher and Madonna. Well, so do we! How many of us are trying to watch this?

Hillary requires a lot of bandwidth. So many people love her.

I would like to express my sincere relief that the U.S. has a Secretary of State who I can believe in. I am very proud of our U.S. Secretary and wish her the best. I would like Secretary of State Clinton know that I am thinking about her wherever she is with my whole hearted regard and good wishes.

I am so discouraged by how moronic this administration is with regards to the failed drug war. I come to one of two conclusions.

1: complete ignorance. They don't get it and foolishly think they can force people to stop using marijuana. (Good luck and how's that going for ya so far?)

2: they are completely corrupt and on the take. Bought and paid for by crime lords who benefit from our corrupt marijuana prohibition.

Leaders of the Americas should be very cautious about allowing the U.S. to export our failed drug policies beyond our borders. Be cautious about allowing the U.S. to export the prison for profit systems and be very cautious when the U.S. asks you oppress your citizens and treat them as rotten as we treat ours.

Hopefully some of the leaders of the Americas will have the integrity to look Hillary in the eye and say "NO". We will not be party to your foolishness.
