Obama’s Racism

Stop the ACLU ^ | July 20, 2010 | Sharon SebastianPosted on Saturday, August 07, 2010 9:21:11 PM by 2ndDivisionVet

On the issue of race, Barack Obama speaks for himself through his writings, actions, policies and appointments. Unquestionably, this President has set race relations in America back decades. Though racism brims around this president, it is second tier to Obama first implementing Marxism.

Marxist’ controls must necessarily be imposed on America first. Marxism allows for government enforcement over citizens whereby certain classes and races of Americans can then be targeted and rendered legally defenseless. The Obama administration’s “Marxists controls” are slipping into place under the innocuous term “mandate” of which hundreds are listed in the healthcare law, the financial reform law, executive orders and proposed legislation.

Mandate means: “to force.” Force is the antithesis of a free people. Force replaces freedom and is a fascist tactic used to implement change. As with any government circumventing the rights and will of the people while forcibly imposing Socialism, the foul stench of fascism, “force,” now clings to this administration.

Historically, mixing fascism with racism leads to devastating results.For Americans today, the message is clear. All who are not Obama’s favored people are in for a bumpy ride as Obama appears intent to turn the tables, right past wrongs by seeking reparations via jobs, healthcare, appointments, government positions and the biggest socialistic grab-bag of all – redistributed wealth.

Obama’s proposed constraints on Americans’ self-determination and hard-earned prosperity carry both the chains of Marxism and racism. Which leads one to ask, is it a revenge mentality, a dispassionate disconnect, or the need for raw power that drives this president?

Many believe racial upheaval is at Obama’s core – based on over 20 years of anti-white and anti-Jewish racist diatribes in his chosen church and associations now and in his past with those who espouse such hatred openly.

PostASSOCIATED PRESS STORY GOES VIRAL!

Was Obama born in Honolulu? How does it affect his claim that he is a “natural born Citizen”?

Aug. 7, 2010 —

The Post & Email was contacted several days ago by reporter Mark Niesse of the Associated Press about “Barack Obama’s birth certificate” as indicated in his story published today on the Associated Press’s main website.Because we wish to report the news rather than be a part of the news, we declined a formal interview with Mr. Niesse.

However, he accurately reported our response to him, which stated, “No one here is requesting Obama’s birth certificate, since it is obvious that he doesn’t possess a valid one.”His initial email is as follows:

If and when the United States and Israel bomb Iran marking the sixth country so blessed by Barack Obama and this sad old world has a new daily horror show to look at on their TV sets, and we then discover that Iran was not actually building nuclear weapons after all, the American mainstream media and the benighted American mind will ask: “Why didn’t they tell us that? Did they want us to bomb them?”

Sheriff Tony DeMeo Threatens Force Against Federal Agents

Noisyroom.net ^ | 8-7-2010 | Terresa Monroe-HamiltonPosted on Saturday, August 07, 2010 4:13:15 PM by Whenifhow

It began with one Sheriff speaking with other Sheriffs about their oaths to uphold the constitution. A new movement is growing in this country in support of limited government, constitutional principles, states rights and a stronger role for sheriffs to play against federal abuse of power. In this 3-part video interview with Tony DeMeo, Sheriff of Nye County, Nevada, he explains that he is a Constitutional Sheriff and that authority for public office holders is derived from the people:SNIP

In his own words Sheriff Tony DeMeo describes an incident where federal agents of the BLM threaten him with arrest while the Sheriff issues his own threats of an armed response if illegal seizures of private property in his county continue. Imagine if BLM authorities went ahead with their “normal” operations of seizing cattle found on public property in direct opposition to Sheriff Tony DeMeo warnings? We would witness a standoff with dire consequences.

About NovemberAmerican Thinker ^ | August 7, 2010 | Jeremy MeisterPosted on Saturday, August 07, 2010 5:19:16 PM by 2ndDivisionVet

Many conservatives are chomping at the bit for the November elections. My fear is that the November elections aren’t going to change anything going on in Washington.Without a two-thirds majority in both Houses of Congress to override the veto, any attempt to repeal the Obama agenda, be it socialized medicine or the financial “reform,” will be dead on arrival.

Obama is an ideologue who is getting almost everything he wants. He’s not going to give it back.Just consider: Right now there are ninety-one House seats in play. That sounds like a lot until you consider that there are 435 seats up for grabs.91/435 = 21%Ninety-one congressmen is less than half of the number who voted for ObamaCare. When you start throwing out the incumbents in that figure who will win, you’re looking at roughly 15% of the House changing faces.

Most incumbents will coast to easy reelection. Fifteen percent is a paltry figure when contrasted with the energy being displayed at Tea Party rallies. There is a reason why the ruling class has little regard for the people it is supposed to represent.

In the early days of WW II the Marine raiders attacked Makin Island and left behind 19 dead Marines after asking the islanders to make sure that they received a proper burial.In 1999 the remains were discovered.

This is a touching tribute.

“LIA”, OBAMA’S ADOPTED SISTERWhat information was taken to her grave?You haven’t heard of Lia? Neither had we. The unknown, until now, adopted sister of Barack Hussein Obama died unexpectedly February 26, 1910. The USA media didn’t cover the story of this woman nor was her name found until the last few days.

A competent WTPOTUS sleuth, Leza, and other researchers uncovered an article about an adopted “brother” in Indonesia, named Lia or Lee. Following up on a tidbit of information and other clues, more information was uncovered. Lia was an adopted sister, not a brother. Two Indonesian obituaries were just found. These tell the final tale of this woman nicknamed Lia.

States With Marine Detachments In Their Naval Militia1. Alaska2. New YorkIn the early part of the twentieth century about a third of the states had a Naval Militia, essentially a maritime version of the National Guard. Naval militiamen played important roles in the Spanish-American War and World War I. However, by World War II many states had abandoned their Naval Militias which included both naval and maritime personnel. During the postwar period only New York still possessed a naval militia, to be joined by Alaska.

The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012

CHARLES J. DUNLAP, JR.In 1992, General Colin Powell, chairman of the joint chiefs, awarded the prize for his strategy essay competition at the National Defense University to Lieutenant Colonel Charles Dunlap for The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012. His cautionary tale imagined an incapable civilian government creating a vacuum that drew a competent military into a coup disastrous for democracy.

The military, of course, is bound to uphold the constitution. But Dunlap wrote: “The catastrophe that occurred on our watch took place because we failed to speak out against policies we knew were wrong. It’s too late for me to do any more. But it’s not for you.”From Parameters, Winter 1992-93, pp. 2-20.The letter that follows takes us on a darkly imagined

Subject : Re:

NCO blood stripe

The statement that the red stripe on dress blue trousers was a”blood” stripe commemorating the Marines killed in the battle forChapultepec in Mexico City in 1847 is a long-perpetuated myth passedon to generations of boots by their DIs.

It simply is not true. To quote LtCol Charlie Cureton in “The Marines,” the wearing of stripeson trousers began in 1834, following the Army’s practice of having trouser stripes the color of the facings of uniform jackets. Colonel Commandant Archibald Henderson prescribed buff-white stripes forofficers and sergeants. When, in 1839, the uniform changed to dark blue coats faced red, officers’ trousers’ stripes became dark blue edged in red.

Ten years later the stripes changed to red, and ove rthe years, there were variations.

Finally, in 1904, the simple redstripe was adopted.

Sen. DeMint Ratifying U.N. Children’s Rights Treaty Would Turn Parental Rights ‘Over to International Community’

Sen. Jim DeMint R- S.C. said that if President Barack Obama gets his way and the Senate ratifies the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the precedent would be set to place parental rights under the jurisdiction of the international community. “We believe we need to take clear action here in Congress to protect the rights of parents to raise their children,”

DeMint said at a Wednesday panel discussion. “This treaty would, in fact, establish a precedent that those rights have been given over to the international community.” DeMint is lead sponsor of S. Res. 519, a resolution to protect parental rights, which is co-sponsored by 30 senators total. Only four more senators need to sign on to inform President Obama that he does not have enough votes in the Senate to ratify the treaty, DeMint said.

A new opinion piece on CNN.com argues that it’s the government, not the companies providing internet access, that is the real danger to free speech and the internet: We should be skeptical of any claims that net neutrality regulation is consistent with the First Amendment, let alone required by it.

As First Amendment attorney Robert Corn-Revere has noted “The First Amendment, the Internet & Net Neutrality: Be Careful What You Wish For”, “It should not be forgotten that the federal government’s initial impulse [in the mid-1990s] was to censor the internet and to subject it to a far lower level of First Amendment protection.”

The real “Big Brother” threat here is a government with the power to completely foreclose all speech under threat of fine or imprisonment — a power the private sector lacks even if you buy into the silly notion that it is out to bottle up speech or speakers….

“The two mission sets are criminal analysts and enter-identification team,” Harrison told CNSNews.com. “I can tell you that guardsmen will not be doing direct law enforcement on the southwest border.”In other words, the National Guardsmen will not be used to actually stop and detain illegal aliens trying to sneak across the border into the United States.

House planned defense against ‘malicious acts’ using shock wavePosted: August 07, 201012:30 am EasternBy Bob Unruh© 2010 WorldNetDaily

The U.S. Senate has dropped a House-approved plan that would prepare the United States to defend itself from an attack from any electromagnetic pulse source – whether it would be from a natural solar flare or the detonation of a space-located nuclear weapon by enemies intent on destroying America’s infrastructure, according to a representative who has raised alarms over EMP.U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, a Maryland Republican, said it is “unfortunate.””While one part of the federal government was warning us of possible solar electromagnetic pulse EMP damage to our electric grid, a key Senate commission approved a bill to ignore this threat,” he said.Do you want to keep up on the EMP threat? Subscribe to the publication that broke the story in 2004 – Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

“It’s particularly ironic since the Senate amended a bill, H.R. 5026, approved unanimously by the House that would specifically protect the grid against solar EMP and other physical threats,” he said.Story continues below WND has reported for years on the devastating danger from an EMP attack that could be launched by a second-rate missile system against America.The concern is that any nuclear detonation that could be launched into the atmosphere anywhere from 25 to 250 miles above the United States could decimate the nation’s electric grid, essentially transporting it instantly back to an era of mechanical machines and agriculture.

Jefferson Or Obama?

Your Choice: Thomas Jefferson or the Status Quo

by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

Recently by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.: The Right To Nullify This Government

When I appeared before hundreds of members of the Iowa GOP late last June on the eve of the state party convention and received a standing ovation from throngs of party loyalists, I knew the business-as-usual crowd would be annoyed. I had just finished explaining that if we are serious about limiting government, as opposed to giving pretty speeches and wringing our hands, we will have to make use of all the mechanisms of defense Thomas Jefferson bequeathed to the states, and not just the ones that don’t offend Katie Couric or the New York Times.

Nathan Tucker has fired the inevitable shot back, in the form of a more or less predictable review of my book Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century. I urge you, dear reader, to download a free chapter of the book at NullificationFreeChapter.com, and see if it intrigues you. Mr. Tucker, I am sorry to report, is not intrigued.

Jefferson’s argument is stated simply enough. If the federal government is allowed to hold a monopoly on determining the extent of its own powers, we have no right to be surprised when it keeps discovering new ones. If the federal government has the exclusive right to judge the extent of its own powers, it will continue to grow – regardless of elections, the separation of powers, and other much-touted limits on government power.

In his famous Report of 1800, James Madison reminded Virginians and Americans at large that the judicial branch was not infallible, and that some remedy must be found for those cases in which all three branches of the federal government exceed their constitutional limits…

Obama’s Oil Drilling Moratorium


Here’s my theory on Obama’s REAL agenda for his drilling Moratorium in the Gulf. In a recent video interview (YouTube), Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal can’t seem to fathom Obama’s utter indifference to wrecking the offshore oil and gas industry in Louisiana with his dictatorial Moratorium. He can’t understand Obama’s seemingly utter contempt and indifference to the tens of thousands of Louisiana workers who work for…….

Beware of “Whole Child Education”


Using Children For Community Takeover. Legislators, School Boards, Parents, and Teachers — BEWARE! “Whole Child Education” is here and it is dangerous. In fact, all education that claims to be “child centered” should be avoided. It is toxic to everyone involved. A better name for child centered education would be “Psychological Vandalism.” What does child centered education mean? It means that to the “educator” the child is a product………

The Origins of Nullification

Recently by Thomas DiLorenzo: How the Lincoln Myth Was Hatched

//

//

The defenders of centralized governmental power (a.k.a. tyranny) despise the Jeffersonian idea that the citizens of the states have a right to nullify what they believe to be unconstitutional federal laws. They hate it so much that they falsify history whenever they are forced to discuss it when it becomes news, as it has in recent months. Their favorite falsehood is the myth that nullification was the idea of U.S. Senator John C. Calhoun, the principal architect of South Carolina’s nullification of the federal “Tariff of Abominations” in 1832. This tariff, sponsored by Henry Clay, raised the average tariff rate to 45% with tariffs on some items exceeding 100%. Since almost all of the items covered by the tariff were manufactured in the Northern states, only Northern manufactures would benefit from them by charging higher prices once international competition was prohibited by the tariff on imports. South Carolinians, Virginians, and other Southerners correctly believed that the tariff was a break with the constitutional compact that outlawed discriminatory taxation. They were correct to interpret the Tariff of Abominations as an attempt by the neo-Puritanical New England “Yankees” to use the power of the central state to plunder them (and all consumers for that matter). That was a trend they sought to nip in the bud with their nullification law.

The defenders of this particular form of legal plunder usually heap the worst calumny imaginable on Calhoun, a former vice president of the United States and one of America’s most brilliant political theorists (read his Disquisition on Government), by associating him with slavery and nothing but slavery. The not-so-veiled implication is that nullification was some kind of white supremacist plot. Associating nullification with Calhoun and only Calhoun, and then relentlessly smearing him, is nothing more than a dishonest diversionary tactic on the part of the defenders of consolidated or centralized governmental power, the purpose of which is censorship of all discussion of the nullification of unconstitutional federal laws.

The idea of nullification was actually popular among the American colonists, long before Calhoun’s time, but is most closely associated with Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, authors of the Kentucky and Virginia Resolves of 1798. Jefferson authored the Kentucky Resolve at the request of the Kentucky legislature as a way of nullifying the hated Sedition Act that was being enforced by President John Adams. This law essentially outlawed free political speech in America.

As soon as the Federalist Party gained power it outlawed free speech, in clear violation of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The spark that ignited this totalitarian impulse was an editorial by the grandson of Benjamin Franklin, Benjamin Franklin Bache, editor of the Philadelphia Aurora newspaper. Bache was a follower of Jefferson and his Democratic-Republican Party, and was outspokenly opposed to the Federalist program of protectionist tariffs, central banking, corporate welfare, high taxes, and a large public debt. In an editorial he called John Adams “old, querulous, bald, blind, crippled, toothless Adams.” Federalists responded in kind. Noah Webster called the Democratic-Republicans “the refuse, the sweepings of the most depraved part of mankind . . .”

Abigail Adams is said to have gone berserk over Bache’s characterization of her husband, and she and the Federalist newspapers began calling for Bache’s punishment. The result was the Alien and Sedition Acts. The Sedition Act was enacted on July 14, 1798, and made it a crime to publish “false, scandalous, and malicious writing against the government or its officials.” Of course, the government itself would solely decide what constituted improper and illegal speech, as was the case in the Soviet Union and all other totalitarian states during the twentieth century. The law was written so as to expire on the day that John Adams left office so that it would only be used against Jefferson’s Democratic-Republican Party.

Many of Jefferson’s followers resented the ostentatious displays of king-like grandeur that the Adams’s were known for. For example, according to the Wikipedia entry on the Alien and Sedition Acts, in July of 1798 President John Adams and his wife Abigail were making their way back home to Braintree, Massachusetts in elaborate carriages as part of a parade, with canons firing to celebrate their entry into every city and town along the way. A man named Luther Baldwin was sitting in a pub in Newark, New Jersey where, upon hearing the canon fire, said “There goes the president and they are firing at his arse.” He also said that he didn’t care if “they fired through his arse.” For this he was sent to prison and assessed fines and court costs.

In November of 1798, a man named David Brown put up a liberty pole in Dedham, Massachusetts with the words, “No Stamp Act, No Sedition Act, No Alien Bills, No Land Tax [referring to Hamilton’s national property tax], Downfall to the Tyrants of America; Peace and Retirement to the President; Long Live the Vice President [Jefferson].” For this he was fined and sentenced to eighteen months in prison.

Several dozen newspaper writers who were supporters of Jefferson were arrested under the Sedition Act for criticizing the government. In addition, Federalist party mobs often attacked newspapers and newspaper editors who were sympathetic to the Democratic-Republican Party or who criticized John Adams. Federalist Roger Griswold, a congressman from Connecticut, attacked fellow Congressman Mathew Lyon of Vermont by beating him with a hickory cane on the floor of the House of Representatives after Lyon criticized the Federalists as being “in opposition to the interests and opinions of nine-tenths of their constituents.”

After Lyons wrote a newspaper article suggesting that Adams had “an unbounded thirst for ridiculous pomp, foolish adulation, and selfish avarice,” the Adams administration convened a grand jury and indicted Lyons. After walking the Revolutionary War veteran through the town of Vergennes, Vermont in shackles, he was imprisoned. He ran for reelection from prison and won handily.

All of this is what motivated Thomas Jefferson to author the Kentucky Resolve of 1798, accompanied by Madison’s Virginia Resolve, which was almost identical (See William J. Watkins, Jr., Reclaiming the American Revolution: The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions and Their Legacy). Section One of Jefferson’s Kentucky Resolve reads as follows:

Resolved, that the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principles of unlimited submission to their General Government; but that by compact under the style and title of a Constitution For the United States and of amendments thereto, they constituted a General Government for special purposes, delegated to that Government certain definite powers, reserving each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self Government; and that whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force . . . . That the Government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that as in all other cases of compact among parties having no common Judge, each party has an equal right to judge for itself, as well as of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.

Madison’s Virginia Resolve, in turn, declared that “in case of deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of other powers, not granted by the said compact [i.e., the Constitution], the States who are parties thereto, have the right and are duty bound, to interpose for arresting the progress of the evil, and for maintaining within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties appertaining to them.”

With Jefferson’s election as president, the Sedition Act ended at midnight on March 3, 1801, the moment Jefferson became president. Upon assuming the office, Jefferson ended all ongoing prosecutions and pardoned those who had been convicted under the Sedition Act.

South Carolina’s nullification of the Tariff of Abominations in 1832 was not even the second example of the principle of nullification being implemented. Far from it. After President Jefferson enacted a trade embargo in response to British theft of American ships and the kidnapping of American sailors, New England legislatures nullified the embargo act by quoting Jefferson himself. For example, on February 5, 1809, the Massachusetts legislature declared that the embargo was “not legally binding on the citizens of the state” and denounced the law as “unjust, oppressive, and unconstitutional” (See James J. Kilpatrick, The Sovereign States). All of the New England states (where the shipping industry was concentrated), plus Delaware, officially nullified the embargo act.

When the War of 1812 broke out (also the work of Henry Clay as much as anyone), the New England Federalists essentially seceded from the union by not participating in the war. Their political vehicle was nullification. As stated by the Connecticut state assembly:

[I]t must not be forgotten that the state of Connecticut is a FREE SOVEREIGN and INDEPENDENT State; that the United States are a confederated and not a consolidated Republic. The Governor of this State is under a high and solemn obligation, ‘to maintain the lawful rights and privileges thereof, as a sovereign, free and independent State,’ as he is ‘to support the Constitution of the United States,’ and the obligation to support the latter imposes an additional obligation to support the former. The building cannot stand, if the pillars upon which it rests, are impaired or destroyed.

This statement by the Connecticut state assembly echoed Jefferson’s states’ rights interpretation of the Constitution, as beautifully stated in the Kentucky Resolve. This places modern-day “conservatives” and “neo-conservatives” in a conundrum: They would like to nullify “Obamacare” and much of the other socialistic legislation that is being passed, and the movement in favor of state nullification as the vehicle for doing so is gaining more and more momentum by the day (see the Web site of the Tenth Amendment Center). But to embrace nullification is to associate oneself with the Jeffersonian compact theory of the state that was overthrown at gunpoint by the Lincoln administration, after several generations of nationalist/consolidationist/Yankee politicians failed to do so through the normal, non-violent political process. As Jefferson clearly stated in the Kentucky Resolve, the states are free, independent, and sovereign. They therefore have a right of secession as well as nullification. Jefferson himself wrote frequently in favor of a states’ right of secession. Indeed, the Declaration of Independence was nothing if it was not a declaration of secession from the British Empire.

An easy prediction is that the neocons will in fact advocate nullification as long as the Democrats are in power. But when they reassume power they will revert back to their cornerstone ideology of Lincoln idolatry, centralization, militarization, censorship, spying, torturing, endless warmongering, and denunciation of nullification and all other forms of the American tradition of states’ rights, otherwise known as federalism.

Bringing Back the Hat March 1, 2008 Up until the 1950's men were rarely seen out and about without a hat sitting upon their head. Since that time, the wearing of hats has seen a precipitous decline. No one is precisely sure why. Some say the downfall of hats occurred when JFK did not wear a hat to his inauguration, thus forever branding them as uncool. This is an urban myth, however, as Kennedy did indeed don a hat that day. Another theory posits that the shrinking si … Read More

Danish drivers stumped by secret rules

The Telegraph ^ | 8/6/2010 | Bruno WaterfieldPosted on Saturday, August 07, 2010 3:50:54 AM by bruinbirdman

Danish drivers have protested after Copenhagen ruled that large sections of its traffic rules were secret in defiance of rulings that wardens must explain why they have issued parking tickets.

Traffic wardens in Denmark’s capital have refused to tell parking offenders what rules they broke.Following numerous complaints from motorists the Danish Broadcasting Corporation requested and received a 110 page document spelling out how traffic wardens should behave and how and when they should issue tickets.

But key sections of the guidance, including the pages concerning the rules setting out the circumstances for issuing tickets, had been blanked out by the Copenhagen parking authority.Traffic wardens claimed that if drivers became aware of the information they would lose respect for traffic law and probably try to work around the rules.The parking authority also insisted that it wanted to prevent wardens getting into long or semantic arguments with motorists about the small print of regulation.

Finally, the authorities declared that parking rules were “exempt” from freedom of information laws because “it is necessary for the protection of significant considerations regarding the implementation of public control”.The “secret” rules are thought to relate to information on recommended observation times for wardens, advice on how to make the judgement for issuing a ticket and the required positions of parked vehicles.

The authorities have ignored a ruling from Hans Gammeltoft Hansen, Denmark’s parliamentary ombudsman, who said the rules “did not justify secrecy”.Excerpt Read more at telegraph.co.uk …

CEO Eric Schmidt says an explosion of data is coming — and we’re totally unprepared to handle the deluge. Here’s why he’s right.Google CEO Eric Schmidt had some scary things to say about privacy yesterday.

In a nutshell, he said there’s an almost incomprehensible amount of data out there about all of us — much of which we’ve generated ourselves via social networks, blogs, and so on — and we are totally unprepared to deal with the implications of that fact.

Schmidt was speaking at the Techonomy confab, currently underway at California’s Lake Tahoe, where large-brained people gather to talk about how technology and the economy intersect.Marshall Kirkpatrick of Read Write Web distilled the highlights:”There was 5 exabytes of information created between the dawn of civilization through 2003,” Schmidt said, “but that much information is now created every 2 days, and the pace is increasing…

People aren’t ready for the technology revolution that’s going to happen to them….””If I look at enough of your messaging and your location, and use Artificial Intelligence,” Schmidt said, “we can predict where you are going to go.””Show us 14 photos of yourself and we can identify who you are. You think you don’t have 14 photos of yourself on the internet? You’ve got Facebook photos! People will find it’s very useful to have devices that remember what you want to do, because you forgot…But society isn’t ready for questions that will be raised as result of user-generated content.

“Are visions of 2001′s HAL 9000 or maybe The Terminator’s SkyNet dancing in your head yet? How about Minority Report or Enemy of the State?In those movies, it was malevolent machines or government agencies that played the boogieman. In Schmidt’s scenario, the source of evil is a lot murkier.Excerpt Read more at pcworld.com …
