      The attitude of the underlings starts at the top. Something about reaping what you sow.

            Don't look too close, but Obummer has a criminal background too.

                Barry has a great insurance policy against that in the form of Joe Biden...

                  One of the "conspiracy theories" traveling around involves all but allowing an attempt on the life of the President -- so as to blame some "right-wing, Tea Party, conservative NRA type" for the deed. The objective, of course, is to elicit rioting, civil unrest and a ton of 'domestic' problems just before a mid-term election and just two years ahead of choosing a new President.

                  Perhaps that might be hard if a state of 'martial law' is declared and elections are suspended, eh? Just an interesting thought - nothing more.

                  Anyway, as much as I am opposed to Barack Obama POLITICALLY and want to see him leave office, I want it done the RIGHT WAY and peacefully in January of 2017 when Gary Johnson is sworn in as the next POTUS.

                        CBS had a recently former SS agent on and he sounded like he knew what was going on. It's no more complicated than levels and levels of bureaucracy since the department got moved under Homeland Security. The moral is low and it's too complicated to do simple things any more. I know, hard to believe more government could screw things up. It's funny how no one is ever fired, they voluntarily resign after they are found incompetent.

                          The contractor did not comply when Secret Service agents asked him to stop using a phone camera to videotape the president in the elevator, according to the people familiar with the incident.
                          Maybe someone should remind the SS that there have been multiple rulings that it is legal to film public servants in public places.


                          What really gets me is everyone is so caught up in the hype that this guy was armed in na elevator with bummer but noone is looking at how a 3x convicted person was able to 1. obtain a license to work armed security, and 2. able to obtain a gun. The fact that he was armed at the time of this incident really is moot, since he did not do anything illegal. But everyone is all freaked out.

                            They didn't stop him either.....................they asked him to stop, he didn't.


                            They (USSS) then contacted the security officers boss,and complained about his actions. His boss pretty much fired him on the spot for not complying with USSS requests. THEY CAN DO THAT . Most security jobs are at will employment and if you don't follow company policy you can go away at will


                            It was when the boss asked the security officer for his gun that the USSS found out he was armed. Sometime during this process the USSS ran his CCH and found the prior history.

                            NOW it becomes a problem when a person who has not been vetted was within arms length of the President and is armed. Not a problem with the security officer--------he was most likely where he was told to be. It's a problem with the USSS detail .

                            Yea it IS the fact that he was armed that is a problem---------------its a BIG security breach but the fact that he was videoing POTUS isn't a part of the probelm
                            Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

                            My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS
