    Obama, Holder, and Napolitano should all be in jail,
    for the illegal sale of 2,500 weapons, to the Mexican drug cartels
    ... as well as the subsequent COVER UP of these crimes ...
    and the murder of American border agent, Brian Terry.

    If anything, Obama, Holder, and Napolitano,
    should be held to a higher standard, than the rest of us.

    In the days of Watergate, the Press demanded, and
    got JUSTICE for the American people. Today, the
    media looks the other way, or helps in the cover up !!!

    A doctor from France says:
    "In France , the medicine is so advanced that
    we cut off a man's testicles; we put them into another man, and
    in 6 weeks he is looking for work."

    The German doctor comments:
    "That's nothing, in Germany we
    take part of the brain out of a person;
    we put it into another person's head, and
    in 4 weeks he is looking for work."

    A Russian doctor says:
    "That's nothing either. In Russia we
    take out half of the heart from a person;
    we put it into another person's chest, and
    in 2 weeks he is looking for work."

    The U.S. doctor answers immediately:
    "That's nothing my colleagues,
    you are way behind the USA, about 3 years ago,
    we grabbed a person from Kenya
    with no brains, no heart, and no balls....we made him
    President of the United States , and now.......
    the whole damn country is looking for work.

      Ha! Excellent Howard! So sad but true. I'm amazed CNN didn't censor you.
