25,000 was a better number for a security shield. Especially with our weak administration.

Nah, I don't roll that way, but Since Seeking Truth is Seeking, and liberal is a Weenie, those two belong together. They're in their own little world. It's great for us that they are staying in it. There used to be a few liberals around here, but they quickly wised up. It's unbelieveable that there are still a few that are brainwashed like that. It's almost as if they've been drugged, or conditioned over a long period of time. These types really are the Jim Jones follower type. They are completely removed from reality and have no idea what is happening in the real world around them. They cannot differentiate the truth from the false even when faced with direct evidence. I wonder if we could condition these types to fly as easily? Now THAT would be fun to watch.:-)

Many of them are in a State of Disrepair, the missiles that carry them require new motors, O-Rings, and Nozzle inspections, and well as refubing the liners and checking the casing walls for oxidation, crytalization of burn rate catalysts, and R&R of any IC boards that are out of spec.

You can thank Slick Willie for that one. Not only did he make drastic cust in defense spending during his road to impeachment, he ran off mnay of the experts that worked on them. The contracts for servicing and retrofits and inspections? heh He let those run out too. Guess where those folks are now? Many places actually. Japan (JAXA), Russia, France, Germany, amoung others.

There's some very dangerous stuff laying around in various spots around the Country, and on the older stuff? Well...there's nobody around to fix it anymore. Thw warheads are safe for now, but sooner or later those will corrode too, and they are gonna be in quite a predicament. That's yet another disaster waiting to happen, and the Gov't? Since they pissed away all the money they had left, and no longer can get any on Credit, they might just end up with a "Hot Zone" on their hands. Plutonium is some real nasty shit, and if you loose containment of the stuff we have now...well....

As for this matter of natinal Security ans the State of Readiness, Our Stategic and Tactical Secrets, and sharing that Top Secret info with Enemies of the USA, and potential adversaries, that's where the NSA comes in.
At the next PAC meeting, i will be bringing this up for action, and I'll see to it this is taken all the way up the Food Chain to the brass in the Military, and see to it this is reported to the NSA for action assuming they are not currently taking action.
That Kenyan bastard does not have the right to violate matter of natinal Security like that. For his sake, he better pray those were not real numbers and was some sort of disinformation Campaign that the Military Brass fed this Kenyan bastard, because iof those were the real numbers, he gave the enemy not only our Tactical and Strategic Capabilities, he have the Reaction Times as well. The number of Missiles and Warheads has remained Secret since they're inception in this Country for a reason. It kept the enemy guessing at the level of attack we were capable of, our state of readiness, our reaction times to any launch detections by a single country or multiple countries, and the startegic capbility of those systems.
While this bastard is gonna pay for a great many things, this act of High Treason is beyond is not just a threat to national Security. It is directly aiding the enemy, and he did it during a time of active war. To engage in an act like this one would have to have a death wish. That's the only explanation for it. It is why a liberal can never again be trusted with our Secrets or our Defense.
I'll assure you. There WILL be action taken on this and on every single one of his other acts of High Treason. He is going to pay for it with his life. I hope he realizes that.
LOL!! Yeah, you're that important with your "PAC" and all.

Where were you when the Bush Crime Family staged 9-11? Ripped off the national Treasury? Committed war crimes? Guess you fascists like all that manly sort of stuff, the rest of us believe in the rule of law, and the prosecution of presidents for war crimes.

So if Obama is such a traitor, then how come Tush and Cheney are unable to travel abroad, especially to the EU?

It may have something to do with having warrants issued for their arrest should they land on their soil.

Only nations without extradition treaties to the US are welcoming to the BCF, such as Paraguay where the BCF owns land protected with Blackwater mercenaries.

Whoa, girl, someone's off their meds.

So, why then is Obama defined by you as "mixed-breed?"

And I'm the racist?? LOL!!!

I'm surprised he hasn't organized guided tours for our enemies. The new book out called "The Manchurian Candidate" details how Obama was really friends with William Ayers much earlier than he let on. It apparently also details his radical upbringing and his ties from his college years to socialists and marxists.
Obama learned from former terrorist Bill Ayers, where they collaborated on the publicly funded Chicago Annenberg Project, which Obama founded, and was designed to spread radical political thought by essentially feeding it to schoolchildren under the guise of educational reform while funnelling taxpayer funds to ACORN rather than to the schools for which it was intended.

http://hotair.com/archives/2008/09/23/the-oba...

Stanley Kurtz tried to force the University of Illinois at Chicago to open its records on a publicly-funded project, and for his journalistic effort got called a “smear merchant” and “character assassin” by Barack Obama and his campaign. They didn’t want reporters snooping through the records of the Chicago Annenberg Project, Obama’s one claim to executive experience — and the years that belie Obama’s characterization of former domestic terrorist William Ayers as nothing more than a neighbor and an acquaintance. Kurtz discovers a long working relationship between the two on a project designed to spread radical political thought by essentially feeding it to schoolchildren under the guise of educational reform.

CAC translated Mr. Ayers’s radicalism into practice. Instead of funding schools directly, it required schools to affiliate with “external partners,” which actually got the money. Proposals from groups focused on math/science achievement were turned down. Instead CAC disbursed money through various far-left community organizers, such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (or Acorn).

Mr. Obama once conducted “leadership training” seminars with Acorn, and Acorn members also served as volunteers in Mr. Obama’s early campaigns. External partners like the South Shore African Village Collaborative and the Dual Language Exchange focused more on political consciousness, Afrocentricity and bilingualism than traditional education. CAC’s in-house evaluators comprehensively studied the effects of its grants on the test scores of Chicago public-school students. They found no evidence of educational improvement.

CAC also funded programs designed to promote “leadership” among parents. Ostensibly this was to enable parents to advocate on behalf of their children’s education. In practice, it meant funding Mr. Obama’s alma mater, the Developing Communities Project, to recruit parents to its overall political agenda. CAC records show that board member Arnold Weber was concerned that parents “organized” by community groups might be viewed by school principals “as a political threat.” Mr. Obama arranged meetings with the Collaborative to smooth out Mr. Weber’s objections.

[continued...]

The Daley documents show that Mr. Ayers sat as an ex-officio member of the board Mr. Obama chaired through CAC’s first year. He also served on the board’s governance committee with Mr. Obama, and worked with him to craft CAC bylaws. Mr. Ayers made presentations to board meetings chaired by Mr. Obama. Mr. Ayers spoke for the Collaborative before the board. Likewise, Mr. Obama periodically spoke for the board at meetings of the Collaborative.

First off, we should note what this isn’t. It’s not a smoking gun revealing criminal activity, and not a precursor to an armed overthrow of American government, although Ayers has done both in his lifetime and still talks approvingly of at least the latter. The program outlined by Kurtz breaks no laws, and Kurtz never claims otherwise.

However, Kurtz’ report provides a very interesting look at the early political life of Barack Obama. He had already entered politics at the time he joined the CAC, and even at that stage had allied himself with ACORN, which has found itself at the center of more than a dozen voter-fraud investigations. Obama also allied himself with Ayers and helped the former Weather Underground fugitive push forward with his plans to radicalize an entire generation of schoolchildren in the area through the CAC. Note well the parallels to community organizing that play out in the activities of the CAC, and recall again how Obama claims that activity as a major qualification for the presidency.

Ayers wanted teachers trained to instruct against “oppression” and to push schoolchildren towards political beliefs Ayers valued — apparently valuing them higher than actual education. Barack Obama agreed, and for several years worked in close partnership with Ayers to implement that educational policy. Even had Ayers never tossed a single bomb, this kind of educational philosophy would likely raise eyebrows with most parents, who desire a real education for their children and not some sort of political indoctrination camp. With the context of Ayers’ violent radicalism, however, it makes the CAC even worse — a breeding ground for future Weathermen, ready to follow Ayers’ lead when the time comes for the revolution that Ayers and his wife (and co-terrorist) Bernardine Dohrn to this day desire.

Barack Obama not only supported this, he helped run this program for several years. What does that say about Obama’s idea of mainstream, as he has repeatedly described Ayers and Dohrn? What does that say about his own politics, his own ideas on education, and what kind of philosophy he brings to American politics?
