A friend of mine emailed me these pictures.
I hardly know what to say. I could use a couple stacks of that and I would be just fine.
You ever seen those movies where the big houses in the Columbian jungles are filled with drug lords and guns and money?
Well this is the real thing....
They say this is a Mexican Drug bust....2008.
The Strong Watchman
Home Of A Mexican Drug Lord Being Raided
Yes, That is cash piled on that table in the background!
Just a small collection of guns -- these people are not really dangerous at all.....
Yes, that is real gold on these guns!
Gold and Titanium 45 Caliber semi automatic pistols - they found 16 like this!
Go and kill in the name of the Lord my son! There was a matched pair of these found.
357 Magnum semi automatic with solid gold grips.
This guy had a better gun collection that most legitimate museums do
Just a quaint little villa in the hills - Drug money bought it all!
Man made cave and hot tub inside the home
A collection of exotic animals - which were cared for in the grandest fashion by the way
7 Lions were on the property
A very rare Tiger
The back yard pool
Exotic art collection - some of which was illegal to own - some stolen
They just burned it all down!
More guns than you could ever imagine!
This pile of cash before it was counted was estimated to be approximately 18 Million Dollars!
After it was counted it turned out to be a little more than 22 Million Dollars!
From another angle
Guns were hidden all over the house along with ample Ammo just in case of trouble.
Stacks of cash were found in every nook and cranny
This case is filled with 100 dollar Bills estimated to be 1/2 a million dollars and no
doubt headed out to make another drug buy, perhaps from the Columbians
18 plastic bins filled with 100 dollar bills were found
Another cabinet stack tight with cash - all 100's
Each of these stacks of 100's holds 250,000 (a quarter of a million dollars)!
They also had millions in Columbian money and Mexican Pesos although they preferred
American dollars for the most part.
There were even some stacks of Chinese Yen found in one closet.
More Gold machine guns and pistols - most were never fired, just held for collection value
The money and valuables found in this one house alone, would be enough to pay for health insurance for every man woman and child in the U.S.A. for 12 years! There are believed to be approximately 27 more of these houses in Mexico alone not to mention the ones in other countries who are enriching themselves in the drug trade.
These people have so much money, they make the Arab oil sheiks look like welfare recipients.
Their money can buy the best politicians, the best cops, the best judges, whatever they need they just throw down stacks of cash and it is theirs! This is why the drug problem is so difficult to fight.
