Sec. of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff (dual citizen) wants a Nation Fingerprint Registry , and hardly anyone in the blogosphere says a word. But now that Sen. Obama has his name as a co-sponsor on a housing bill, that is calling for one, and it’s a bad thing now?
Sens. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) authored a bill (with 11 co-sponsors, including Sen. Barack Obama) that was incorporated into a housing bill passed by the Senate Banking Committee 19-2 before the Memorial Day recess — a bill that creates a national fingerprint registry.
According to a Martinez press release, the language merely “create[s] national licensing and oversight standards for residential mortgage originators.”
So the Heritage Foundation, that proclaims it is all about “Reagan Conservatism” (with the help of the worse moron of them all, Sean Hannity), talks about Limited Government (but supports the warfare/welfare state) are now going after Sen. Obama for supporting something that El Presidente Bush supports? I am in LaLa Land folks.
Maybe this all has to do with this little news item from Croatia. (That’s a country for you public school kids)

To quote from the movie the Matrix, when Neo and Trinity are getting ready to go into battle in the grand finale of the film, Tank asks ” So what do you need? Besides a miracle.”
Neo’s reply: Guns. Lots of guns .
That about says it all right there.
