This picture is so on point that I elected to use it again.
As an information broker, I must excercise my right to provide you with details that the MSM will not actively pursue.
Here ya go with a little more insight on the campaigning of HRC.
Since I didn't want to use a biased media source for the link, here is the New York Times article:Fund-Raiser Reappears as Critic.

Have you lost your fucking mind?
I know that the speech given by Sen Barack Obama was a powerful one. It has also been addressed by Sec of State Condoleeza Rice.
Sometimes I reflect on the injustices and I become an "Angry Black Man"...I'm just sayin'
Does that make me un-American or un-Patriotic?

I love the internet. I truly do. Where else can a person give life to a story and within 24 hours, millions of people around the world can have access to the same piece of information.
I feel compelled to share with you a tad bit more of the extremely controversial MSM video not seen of Pastor Wright
With all this information at our disposal, let's not be led like sheep.
This is my public service announcement!
Happy Resurrection Day!

I found this picture over at The Huffington Post and I absolutely love it.
It's very clear to me that Sen Barack Obama doesn't want to engage in the same type of political tactics as his democratic opponent HRC. As I am not a paid member of the campaign, I am capable of expressing myself however I choose. Yet, I will not call HRC out of her name, I will not diminish the accomplishments of her tenure in public office, I will not give in to my personal feelings on her campaign spins, instead I will only become an information broker and allow readers to draw their own conclusions.
I'm still awaiting a very public apology from Mainstream Media and HRC regarding the NAFTA Gate accusations to Sen Barack Obama, since the Canadian Government has already exonerated him and his advisor. Having multiple witnesses to support a call being made to a Canadian official from the HRC campaign, not Mr. Obama's has to be publicly acknowledged. There was no mistake at the damages caused by the MSM(mainstream media)attention to the matter. Sweeping the updated version under the rug, without giving it the immeasurable attention the negative story cast...is well questionable for lack of a better word.
here's an excerpt:
"Mr Brodie ... stopped to chat with several journalists, and was surrounded by a group from CTV.... The conversation turned to the pledges to renegotiate the North American free-trade agreement made by the two Democratic contenders, Mr Obama and New York Senator Hillary Clinton.
Mr Brodie, apparently seeking to play down the potential impact on Canada, told the reporters the threat was not serious, and that someone from Ms Clinton's campaign had even contacted Canadian diplomats to tell them not to worry because the Nafta threats were mostly political posturing."
According to this story in The Globe and Mail which is the equivalent to the AP in the U.S.
Another point of reference the 140 pardons granted by President Clinton on the last day of his term.
Here's another interesting excerpt:
"Former president Clinton issued 140 pardons on his last day in office, including several to controversial figures, such as commodities trader Rich, then a fugitive on tax evasion charges. Rich's ex-wife, Denise, contributed $2,000 in 1999 to Hillary Clinton's Senate campaign; $5,000 to a related political action committee; and $450,000 to a fund set up to build the Clinton library.
The president also pardoned two men who each paid Sen. Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, about $200,000 to lobby the White House for pardons — one for a drug conviction and one for mail fraud and perjury convictions, according to a 2002 report by the House committee on government reform. After the payments came to light, Bill Clinton issued a statement: "Neither Hillary nor I had any knowledge of such payments," the report said.
The pardon records released by the library divulge little that might settle debate about those and other pardons. But they do shed new light on the volume of clemency requests that former president Clinton received — and the pressures he and his staff faced as friends, advisers, political leaders and foreign heads of state weighed in to influence which petitions would be granted."

Maybe I'm not understanding the favors and money thing as being highly ethical.

Yeah, I said it. This is some BULLSHIT!! I know I'm not crazy.
I know that people are excited about the political process as evidenced in the primary and caucus turn-outs. I'm thrilled to be part of the History in the making cliche. A woman breaking the glass ceiling. A black man being counted more than 3/5. Fantastic. A true reason to be proud of my country.
I have certainly made my candidate choice very clear, yet I still tell my friends and family to make the decision just to vote. I will correct an error when I hear it regarding a political position of Sen Barack Obama, but I don't try to force my opinion on anyone.
At this point, I am now very disappointed with the lack of apology extended to Sen Barack Obama by the mainstream news and media outlets. Frankly, I'm going to sum it up like this.
No major attention has been directed at CLINTONS TIED TO REZKO story. A story that would have taken some of the steam out of the Clinton machine attacks on Obama perfectly timed before a huge Super Tuesday II primary. Nor has mainstream media covered the even larger story regarding 'NAFTAgate' began with remark from Harper's chief of staff. Directly stating that a call came in from a member of the Clinton campaign and was flipped to reflect an Obama campaign advisor(by mistake of course). WTF?!
Look at how the story was reported on the New York Times: Canadian Leader on Obama Leak...where is the rest of the story? Where is the apology? Why is it buried halfway down the page? Where the fuck is the rest of the information? They aren't the only major paper or news source to keep it buried either. The coverage on this story is a shameful mockery of justice. I don't give two shits about intra party debating. In fact, I encourage it. This just shows what spin HRC and her campaign are capable of. Fuck 'em! Seriously!!
I hope they fix this and fix it soon.
The only place I saw some decent coverage was MSNBC: CLINTON'S NAFTA-GATE? . Hardly on the front page, high priority list, but at least it was there.

I have made my preference to see Senator Barack Obama become the next President of the United States quite well known. Other than volunteering for the ground support and getting all my friends to vote early and make mad phone calls for the campaign, I do occasionally write a blog post about it.
I have watched the Clinton Campaign speak about all the judgements they made and the experience downplay of Senator Barack Obama. It is a little known fact that the Clinton's(Bill and Hillary) went against the grain regarding clemency procedures for FALN prisoners. Surprisingly, 1999 marked a great year of Hispanic Support for the Sen Hillary Clinton's 2000 U.S. Senate run. The campaign is also under scrutiny because Sen. Clinton accepts donations from troubled firm and won't return the money like other politicians have done. When a campaign has lots of skeletons in their closet, it would be best to refrain from the mudslinging tactics.
The next time I see a commercial about who I'd like to see answering the "red phone" at 3AM, I'll be sure to think about The Clintons' Terror Pardons
I just hate the divisive tactics being used during this Democratic Nomination process.
Be informed and above all else, utilize your right to vote.
I'm just sayin'.
