10 Things on Fast and Furious

The NRA/ILA put together the list below regarding the Fast and Furious Scandal. I don't usually go into politics too far. Others address this debacle far better than me. It's important that the F&F background come into sharper focus during this election.

This is preaching to the choir. I know. I will use this list in reasoned discourse as I find the fence sitters. I have already known lots of people that bought into the "Hope and Change, wouldn't it be cool to have a black guy as president", bullshit of 2008.

Top Ten Things You Need To Know About Fast and Furious
  1. The Obama administration illegally helped traffic over 2,000 guns to violent Mexican drug cartels.

  6. The Obama administration armed violent Mexican drug cartels and endangered American lives to push a gun control agenda.

  9. Obama invoked “executive privilege” to help Eric Holder conceal Fast and Furious documents from congressional investigators and the American public.
  10. On June 28, 2012, a bipartisan majority in the U.S. House voted to hold Eric Holder in criminal and civil contempt of Congress. Eric Holder is the first U.S. Attorney General ever to be held in contempt of Congress
