Sniper Finder

Some new technology is out. It allows our troops to properly respond to incoming fire, take cover and return fire on target. I will admit that this is a great piece of technology but a shot had to be fired for it to work. A person may be hit and a life may be lost. The only satisfaction will come knowing you can accurately return fire and kill the aggressor.

Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan to get life saving anti-sniper device

British and American forces fighting the guerrilla insurgence in Iraq and Afghanistan could soon be protected by an anti-sniper device that can pinpoint the position of the shooter within a fraction of a second.
The palm-sized device designed by Qinetiq, the British defense firm that was once the government research laboratories, is pinned to the uniform and uses acoustic technology to calculate the exact position of the rifle fire.
Then a electronic voice passes on the "bearing and range" to the soldier allowing him to jump to safety and return fire.

Mini Nuclear Plants

Would you be surprised to learn that there are companies right now preparing Nuclear Reactors to be delivered ready to run, anywhere in the world? I reported a few months ago about Russia looking to build nuclear barge platforms. I didn't see this as a safe and reliable advancement given the current state of the world with terrorism and all.

This, I am intrigued by. A fully self contained and sealed system with technology to limit reaction time and allowing no access to its inner workings. A small storage shed sized devise that can be used to heat water to 500 degrees. You supply the water and pipes it supplies the heat. You can use the steam for electric generation or water purification. It sounds like an idea whose time has come.

Go ahead read about it here and give me your opinion.

Do Gooders and Government Mandates

I can remember being read the story of "Robinhood" when I was a kid. I remember the animated cartoon with the fox as Robinhood. About ten years ago Kevin Cosner played the role of Robinhood in a major movie.
The idea is repeated in various ways throughout history. The movie twists our basic concepts of law and order, and we are left cheering for the law breakers and booing the law makers.
Most of us are raised with a strong focus on right and wrong. We expect justice to be fair. Those who seek to do harm to others are to be punished. We look to our government to set rules and establish laws that are fair and just. This is not the case in many countries around the globe. In some countries a robinhood character is sought by the people.

The basic theme of taking from the rich and giving to the poor has been a common theme of government. The flaw usually in the system is the rich are the ones governing. They talk a good game but it is usually the poor and middle class that end up sharing while the upper class has some special classification that keeps them from the pool. The resulting system is usually called socialism. The chasm between the haves and havenots grows wider and the suffrage grows greater.

This issue has been addressed in America before. The role of government in America is clear. Read the story below and then carefully review where you would like your nation to stand on the big issues of today.

"Not Yours To Give"
Originally published in "The Life of Colonel David Crockett,"
by Edward Sylvester Ellis.

"Not Yours To Give"

Col. David Crockett US Representative from Tennessee
One day in the House of Representatives a bill was taken up appropriating money for the benefit of a widow of a distinguished naval officer. Several beautiful speeches had been made in its support. The speaker was just about to put the question when Crockett arose:
"Mr. Speaker--I have as much respect for the memory of the deceased, and as much sympathy for the suffering of the living, if there be, as any man in this House, but we must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for part of the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has not the power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member on this floor knows it.
We have the right as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money. Some eloquent appeals have been made to us upon the ground that it is a debt due the deceased. Mr. Speaker, the deceased lived long after the close of the war; he was in office to the day of his death, and I ever heard that the government was in arrears to him.
Every man in this House knows it is not a debt. We cannot without the grossest corruption, appropriate this money as the payment of a debt. We have not the semblance of authority to appropriate it as charity. Mr. Speaker, I have said we have the right to give as much money of our own as we please. I am the poorest man on this floor. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week's pay to the object, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks."
He took his seat. Nobody replied. The bill was put upon its passage, and, instead of passing unanimously, as was generally supposed, and as, no doubt, it would, but for that speech, it received but few votes, and, of course, was lost.
Later, when asked by a friend why he had opposed the appropriation, Crockett gave this explanation:
"Several years ago I was one evening standing on the steps of the Capitol with some members of Congress, when our attention was attracted by a great light over in Georgetown. It was evidently a large fire. We jumped into a hack and drove over as fast as we could. In spite of all that could be done, many houses were burned and many families made houseless, and besides, some of them had lost all but the clothes they had on. The weather was very cold, and when I saw so many children suffering, I felt that something ought to be done for them. The next morning a bill was introduced appropriating $20,000 for their relief. We put aside all other business and rushed it through as soon as it could be done.
The next summer, when it began to be time to think about election, I concluded I would take a scout around among the boys of my district. I had no opposition there but, as the election was some time off, I did not know what might turn up. When riding one day in a part of my district in which I was more of a stranger than any other, I saw a man in a field plowing and coming toward the road. I gauged my gait so that we should meet as he came up, I spoke to the man. He replied politely, but as I thought, rather coldly.
I began: 'Well friend, I am one of those unfortunate beings called candidates and---"
"Yes I know you; you are Colonel Crockett. I have seen you once before, and voted for you the last time you were elected. I suppose you are out electioneering now, but you had better not waste your time or mine, I shall not vote for you again."
"This was a sockdolger...I begged him tell me what was the matter."
"Well Colonel, it is hardly worthwhile to waste time or words upon it. I do not see how it can be mended, but you gave a vote last winter which shows that either you have not capacity to understand the Constitution, or that you are wanting in the honesty and firmness to be guided by it. In either case you are not the man to represent me. But I beg your pardon for expressing it that way. I did not intend to avail myself of the privilege of the constituent to speak plainly to a candidate for the purpose of insulting you or wounding you."
"I intend by it only to say that your understanding of the constitution is very different from mine; and I will say to you what but for my rudeness, I should not have said, that I believe you to be honest.
But an understanding of the constitution different from mine I cannot overlook, because the Constitution, to be worth anything, must be held sacred, and rigidly observed in all its provisions. The man who wields power and misinterprets it is the more dangerous the honest he is."
"I admit the truth of all you say, but there must be some mistake. Though I live in the backwoods and seldom go from home, I take the papers from Washington and read very carefully all the proceedings of Congress. My papers say you voted for a bill to appropriate $20,000 to some sufferers by fire in Georgetown. Is that true?"
"Well my friend; I may as well own up. You have got me there. But certainly nobody will complain that a great and rich country like ours should give the insignificant sum of $20,000 to relieve its suffering women and children, particularly with a full and overflowing treasury, and I am sure, if you had been there, you would have done just the same as I did."
"It is not the amount, Colonel, that I complain of; it is the principle. In the first place, the government ought to have in the Treasury no more than enough for its legitimate purposes. But that has nothing with the question. The power of collecting and disbursing money at pleasure is the most dangerous power that can be entrusted to man, particularly under our system of collecting revenue by a tariff, which reaches every man in the country, no matter how poor he may be, and the poorer he is the more he pays in proportion to his means.
What is worse, it presses upon him without his knowledge where the weight centers, for there is not a man in the United States who can ever guess how much he pays to the government. So you see, that while you are contributing to relieve one, you are drawing it from thousands who are even worse off than he.
If you had the right to give anything, the amount was simply a matter of discretion with you, and you had as much right to give $20,000,000 as $20,000. If you have the right to give at all; and as the Constitution neither defines charity nor stipulates the amount, you are at liberty to give to any and everything which you may believe, or profess to believe, is a charity and to any amount you may think proper. You will very easily perceive what a wide door this would open for fraud and corruption and favoritism, on the one hand, and for robbing the people on the other. 'No, Colonel, Congress has no right to give charity."
"Individual members may give as much of their own money as they please, but they have no right to touch a dollar of the public money for that purpose. If twice as many houses had been burned in this country as in Georgetown, neither you nor any other member of Congress would have Thought of appropriating a dollar for our relief. There are about two hundred and forty members of Congress. If they had shown their sympathy for the sufferers by contributing each one week's pay, it would have made over $13,000. There are plenty of wealthy men around Washington who could have given $20,000 without depriving themselves of even a luxury of life."
"The congressmen chose to keep their own money, which, if reports be true, some of them spend not very creditably; and the people about Washington, no doubt, applauded you for relieving them from necessity of giving what was not yours to give. The people have delegated to Congress, by the Constitution, the power to do certain things. To do these, it is authorized to collect and pay moneys, and for nothing else. Everything beyond this is usurpation, and a violation of the Constitution."
"So you see, Colonel, you have violated the Constitution in what I consider a vital point. It is a precedent fraught with danger to the country, for when Congress once begins to stretch its power beyond the limits of the Constitution, there is no limit to it, and no security for the people. I have no doubt you acted honestly, but that does not make it any better, except as far as you are personally concerned, and you see that I cannot vote for you."
I tell you I felt streaked. I saw if I should have opposition, and this man should go to talking and in that district I was a gone fawn-skin. I could not answer him, and the fact is, I was so fully convinced that he was right, I did not want to. But I must satisfy him, and I said to him:
"Well, my friend, you hit the nail upon the head when you said I had not sense enough to understand the Constitution. I intended to be guided by it, and thought I had studied it fully. I have heard many speeches in Congress about the powers of Congress, but what you have said here at your plow has got more hard, sound sense in it than all the fine speeches I ever heard. If I had ever taken the view of it that you have, I would have put my head into the fire before I would have given that vote; and if you will forgive me and vote for me again, if I ever vote for another unconstitutional law I wish I may be shot."
He laughingly replied; 'Yes, Colonel, you have sworn to that once before, but I will trust you again upon one condition. You are convinced that your vote was wrong. Your acknowledgment of it will do more good than beating you for it. If, as you go around the district, you will tell people about this vote, and that you are satisfied it was wrong, I will not only vote for you, but will do what I can to keep down opposition, and perhaps, I may exert some little influence in that way.'
If I don't, said I, 'I wish I may be shot; and to convince you that I am in earnest in what I say I will come back this way in a week or ten days, and if you will get up a gathering of people, I will make a speech to them. Get up a barbecue, and I will pay for it.'
No, Colonel, we are not rich people in this section but we have plenty of provisions to contribute for a barbecue, and some to spare for those who have none. The push of crops will be over in a few days, and we can then afford a day for a barbecue. 'This Thursday; I will see to getting it up on Saturday week. Come to my house on Friday, and we will go together, and I promise you a very respectable crowd to see and hear you.'
"Well I will be here. But one thing more before I say good-bye. I must know your name."
'My name is Bunce.'
'Not Horatio Bunce?'
"Well, Mr. Bunce, I never saw you before, though you say you have seen me, but I know you very well. I am glad I have met you, and very proud that I may hope to have you for my friend."
It was one of the luckiest hits of my life that I met him. He mingled but little with the public, but was widely known for his remarkable intelligence, and for a heart brim-full and running over with kindness and benevolence, which showed themselves not only in words but in acts. He was the oracle of the whole country around him, and his fame had extended far beyond the circle of his immediate acquaintance. Though I had never met him, before, I had heard much of him, and but for this meeting it is very likely I should have had opposition, and had been beaten. One thing is very certain, no man could now stand up in that district under such a vote.
At the appointed time I was at his house, having told our conversation to every crowd I had met, and to every man I stayed all night with, and I found that it gave the people an interest and confidence in me stronger than I had ever seen manifested before.
Though I was considerably fatigued when I reached his house, and, under ordinary circumstances, should have gone early to bed, I kept him up until midnight talking about the principles and affairs of government, and got more real, true knowledge of them than I had got all my life before.
I have known and seen much of him since, for I respect him - no, that is not the word - I reverence and love him more than any living man, and I go to see him two or three times every year; and I will tell you, sir, if every one who professes to be a Christian lived and acted and enjoyed it as he does, the religion of Christ would take the world by storm.
But to return to my story. The next morning we went to the barbecue and, to my surprise, found about a thousand men there. I met a good many whom I had not known before, and they and my friend introduced me around until I had got pretty well acquainted - at least, they all knew me.
"In due time notice was given that I would speak to them. They gathered up around a stand that had been erected. I opened my speech by saying:
"Fellow-citizens - I present myself before you today feeling like a new man. My eyes have lately been opened to truths which ignorance or prejudice or both, had heretofore hidden from my view. I feel that I can today offer you the ability to render you more valuable service than I have ever been able to render before. I am here today more for the purpose of acknowledging my error than to seek your votes. That I should make this acknowledgment is due to myself as well as to you. Whether you will vote for me is a matter for your consideration only."
"I went on to tell them about the fire and my vote for the appropriation and then told them why I was satisfied it was wrong. I closed by saying:
"And now, fellow-citizens, it remains only for me to tell you that the most of the speech you have listened to with so much interest was simply a repetition of the arguments by which your neighbor, Mr. Bunce, convinced me of my error.
"It is the best speech I ever made in my life, but he is entitled to the credit for it. And now I hope he is satisfied with his convert and that he will get up here and tell you so.'
He came up to the stand and said:
"Fellow-citizens - it affords me great pleasure to comply with the request of Colonel Crockett. I have always considered him a thoroughly honest man, and I am satisfied that he will faithfully perform all that he has promised you today."
He went down, and there went up from that crowd such a shout for Davy Crockett as his name never called forth before.
I am not much given to tears, but I was taken with a choking then and felt some big drops rolling down my cheeks. And I tell you now that the remembrance of those few words spoken by such a man, and the honest, hearty shout they produced, is worth more to me than all the honors I have received and all the reputation I have ever made, or ever shall make, as a member of Congress.'
"Now, sir," concluded Crockett, "you know why I made that speech yesterday. There is one thing which I will call your attention, you remember that I proposed to give a week's pay. There are in that House many very wealthy men - men who think nothing of spending a week's pay, or a dozen of them, for a dinner or a wine party when they have something to accomplish by it. Some of those same men made beautiful speeches upon the great debt of gratitude which the country owed the deceased--a debt which could not be paid by money--and the insignificance and worthlessness of money, particularly so insignificant a sum as $20,000 when weighed against the honor of the nation. Yet not one of them responded to my proposition. Money with them is nothing but trash when it is to come out of the people. But it is the one great thing for which most of them are striving, and many of them sacrifice honor, integrity, and justice to obtain it."
Col. Crockett later died defending liberty in the Battle of the Alamo, in the War for Texas Independence.

Hug Your Toilet Today

Don't Laugh: World Toilet Day Aims to Promote Sanitation, Rid World of Disease
Wednesday, November 19, 2008

A non-profit organization in Singapore has declared Wednesday World Toilet Day, Agence France-Presse reported.
But this is not a laughing matter, according to The World Toilet Organization, which was founded in 2001 and aims to make the world aware of sanitation issues.
“Each year, lack of toilets cause 200 million tons of humans waste to go uncollected and untreated around the world, fouling the environment and exposing millions of people to diseases,” said a statement on the organization’s Web site.
World Toilet Day is a reminder that better sanitation is needed around the world.
According to the Web site, 2.5 billion people across the globe lack access to appropriate toilet facilities.
The WTO consists of 151 toilet and sanitation organizations in 53 countries.

Keys to Success

New technology and old fashion skill increase the dangers in society. Everyone feels safe when they are at home behind lock doors. How safe are we really?
The technology is out there where someone could take a picture of a set of keys and make a duplicate of that set. Well skilled locksmiths can look at a key and make a duplicate without ever touching the key 80% of the time. A new computer program can take a picture from a cell phone or long range camera and make a set of duplicate keys.

How many people do you know leave their keys out at work? They toss them on the counter or desk and think nothing about the security risk they may be taking. In a public office anyone could be coming through and collecting data. Most people aren't too hard to follow home or simply profile based on name and other available info.
Just knowing this allows you to take steps to increase your personal safety. Take a moment and look at your habits and routines and check to see how much you have exposed yourself to those seeking opportunity. Discuss personal security at home.

If you don't think a picture of your keys can invite unwanted guests, read about your keys here.

Looking Ahead to 2010

Looks like another lopsided election year. In the Senate the Republicans must defend and hold 19 seats while the Democrats need to only work 16. If the conservative movement is going to make a come back we better start looking at our options.
Here is a list of the positions up for grabs.
15 – Dems
19 – Rep
Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, Republican
Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Republican
Arizona Sen. John McCain, Republican
Arkansas Sen. Blanche Lincoln, Democratic
California Sen. Barbara Boxer, Democratic
Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd, Democratic
Florida Sen. Mel Martinez, Republican
Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson, Republican
Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo, Republican
Hawaii Sen. Dan Inouye, Democratic
Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, Democratic
Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh, Democratic
Iowa Sen. Charles E. Grassley, Republican
Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning, Republican
Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, Republican
Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Democratic
Missouri Sen. Christopher Bond, Republican
Nevada Sen. Harry Reid, Democratic
New Hampshire Sen. Judd Gregg, Republican
New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, Democratic
North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, Republican
North Dakota Sen. Byron Dorgan, Democratic
Ohio Sen. George Voinovich, Republican
Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, Democratic
Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter, Republican
South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, Republican
South Dakota Sen. John Thune, Republican
Utah Sen. Bob Bennett, Republican
Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, Democratic
Washington Sen. Patty Murray, Democratic
Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold, Democratic

I highlighted the big races that need to be won. We need to locate encourage and fund a viable candidate in each of these states.

2010 Senate Map May Not Be Much Better for the GOP

If focus and drive is good we can take a strong hold of the Senate but a majority is very slim. Our best hope to take the senate and restore government is 2012. There will be 33 seats up for election, Dem – 24 Rep - 9. It will take a lot of work on our part to hold back the flood gates on government spending and socialization over the next four years. You best prepare yourself for the battle ahead.

The First to Fall

It looks like Pawlenty is going to be the first of our republican party to face the anger of the people. Everyone seemed so high on him while I find him less than acceptable. His middle of the road political position does not fit what we the people want in politics and it is time for us to stand up and tell him and the others who follow similar ideals.
I don't want a watered down conservative (or RINO) leading the charge for the next presidential election. As an independant some would suggest that I don't have a say in the republican party. Let me make it known to you that the reason we have so many independants in the first place is because the republican party left us. You want to gain the upper hand and win elections then you better put asside your centrist ideals and start moving back to the people.
Sarah Palin gives me high hopes for the future of the Republican party. Let us not kill it completely by putting moderates like Pawlenty on the stage as representative of we the people.

Hunting Rinos

Rino Season Is Now Open
by Ted Nugent

Like any entity that abandons basic quality control, political parties rot from within. It happened to the Democrats long ago, and now has become the case with the Republican Party, which has strayed from its conservative underpinnings.
There are really only four things I have a strong aversion to: unloaded guns, dull knives, banjos, and Republicans in Name Only (RINOs).
The Nugent family simply doesn't allow any of those things in our lives.
RINOs are Fedzilla punks who feign support for conservative principles only when it serves their political interest. RINOs are also known for their moderate positions such as supporting tax increases, federal “bailouts”, “comprehensive immigration reform”, advocating more counterproductive gun control that guarantee more innocent victims, opposing the death penalty, and growing and sustaining Fedzilla and all its toxic mongrels by going along with the liberals. RINOs have forgotten President Ronald Maximus Regan's admonition that government is the problem, not the solution.

Read the Rest of Ted's rant.

Let us start focusing on the conservatives and making sure they are heard.

Saving Big Auto

We seem to have a sudden need to save everything. In our rush to save the world, are we dooming our own society? The land of the free is becoming less free with every passing bailout proposal. Freedom to both succeed and fail seems to be no longer allowed once you get to a curtain size. Capitalism has been reserved for small business only. Or to be more Blunt, small businesses are the only businesses that are allowed to fail. Once you get to be as big as a national bank or a national auto maker, the American tax payer now becomes responsible for keeping you in business. CEOs no longer have to worry about making good or bad decisions because no matter what, the government will step in and save the day on the backs of its people.
I don't know how much available money you have in your budget but I don't recall setting asside billions of dollars for corperate bailouts. If I get in too deep, who will bail me out?
The comical side of this is watching the Democrats try and deal with this. Their liberal philosophies get in the way of their political constituansies. How do you get behind saving the big auto makers when....
autos cause global warming.
Auto makers are corperate robber barons of the people.
Saving big business will save the republicans
Auto Industry supports Big Oil
Yet how do you not.........
Auto Workers Union got you elected
Where are you going to get all those tax dollars you claim you need.

The plain and simple truth is the unions have fleeced the auto makers and they can no longer compete in a world market. Until they can get out from under these contracts they will continue to lose money and fail. Chapter 11 is the answer to the problem. A simple reorganization will restore cash flow and return the auto makers back to the business of making cars. The union workers will have to decide if having a job and a future is important.
Yes, I realize that millions of Americans will take a pay cut and probably have major finacial challenges. They will still have a job and millions of people beyond them who supply all those parts that make up the cars will have jobs as well. Most of them won't take a pay cut only suffer a benifit cut on future pensions and such. Close to one third of the labor costs to the industry falls into this catagory. We can save the many and get our econemy rolling again as well as be able to price American goods comperable to their foreign competition.
The American auto industry has come a long way in making quality cars that can compete in the market place. They can surely accell if some of the finacial burdens can be lifted.

Congress may be looking at the wrong type of bailout for the auto makers.

What Are They Going to Do Now

There Is Plenty of Work To Be Done

Hopefully, you have worked through the anger, frustration and pain or our last election. Now is the time to contemplate what happened and how do we keep the country. BO expounded on all kinds of socialistic policies and failed European programs. What is the likely hood he can successfully promote them here? What can we do?
The first consideration should be how BO sees his new power as president. If he sees his win as a mandate to force his policies then he will move quickly to try and get congress to enact legislation. If he sees his policies as political pronouncements simply to foist him into the office, he will focus on power retention and pick and choose those who would offer the most votes. This focus would be on making sure he has a second term. This focus would be advantageous to “we the people”.
I have many times pointed to the fact that politicians are power hungry and retaining office and the power that comes with it is far more important than ideology and policy. This hunger/greed of power allows “we the people” to have a say. This takes organization and personal effort to get their attention.
Let me lay out what I see and where we are going.
When BO enters office we are going to be in a horrible recession. The very fact that he was elected is going to greatly affect all avenues of wealth and money. The wealthy will divest in assets further depressing the market and reducing jobs. With the specter of increased taxes companies will start holding back on expansion plans to retain cash to deal with these changes. Companies for the most part have cut back dramatically in all areas because of increased energy costs. Now energy has gone down but the new uncertainty in the political realm will keep this money stagnate. This stagnation will keep employment down. This tightening up of money by the “haves” will make the “have not’s” lives more difficult.
This cash crunch will make it very difficult for BO to enact many of his policies. Raising taxes to try and boost funds for these policies will further depress the market and actually reduce federal income. The situation may force him to retain the current tax policy. I know it will cause him great pain but there will be little choice. His next problem is his window of opportunity is very small.
The political contest period has been expanded to more than a year. There are many in congress that will be coming up for re-election in 2010. They won’t want to do anything to upset their constituents during this period. This will give BO about 250 days to make his changes. We need to make sure that our letters and emails will be there to remind these congressmen that we are watching. This will keep the window of opportunity very tight. It will also make the chances of major changes of the government and BO very small.
The key is our input as citizens. We need to write letters and keep our representatives on a short leash. They need to feel closely watched. This will force them to carefully weigh every decision.
While doing this we need to find and field candidates that are truly conservative. We need to help them get the word out and promote their candidacy. We also need to help them financially.
Our nation is at risk. We are in the most difficult situation of our nation and it will take a full effort of all those who hold this nation dear. I will be using all my avenues to Save Our Nation. Will you join me and use all yours?
I’m starting with prayer. Our founding fathers started there and look what they were capable of doing.

Great Quotes

Voting for McCain over Obama has nothing to do with racism - it's choosing an experienced politician to lead the country over a smiling game show host with a good speech writer.

Also note the Clintons, they are very silent, and there is no doubt that a large percentage of Clinton voters will vote McCain for Clinton's only shot at presindecy in 2012 is a McCain win.

Obama is Surrounded by Law Breakers

It seems like the deeper you look into BO and his relationships the more you find. Do any of these names ring a bell?

Tony Rezko
Reverend Wright
Louis Farrakhan
William Ayers
Bernardine Rae Dohrn
Frank Marshall Davis
Rashid Khalidi
Father Michael Pfleger
George Soros
Khalid al-Mansour
Raila Odinga

If anyone other then BO had associated with one or more of these characters they would be ran out of town on a rail. Yet, BO has connections with everyone on this list. Some he has spent decades around, and he still manages to claim they are casual acquaintances.
Look, I know that rising to any level in politics you are going to meet and associate with a vast number of people who may not have stellar pasts, but look at these people. We are talking about the worst of the worst. BO has demonstrated a pattern of bad decision making in the area of friends and associates. These were not casual photo ops or happenstance. These are the people he worked and played with. With BO's ability to choose friends and advisers, we are going to be in big trouble when he chooses a cabinet. This could be the first time that our president and half his cabinet can't clear FBI vetting standards.
It now has been learned that BO has an aunt living in Boston Illegally. Her name is Zeituni Onyango. She was denied asylum four years ago and asked to leave the country. She is still here and BO says he wasn't aware of her status but is willing to throw her under the bus for political gain.

What blindness has struck this nation that would allow us to have a candidate of this caliber? Look up the names I posted above and decide if this is who you really want as the leader of our nation.

I have typed each name into Google and given you that link as a starting place. I won't cherry pick. It is your decision.
