The Audacity Of Incompetency, Insecurity, And Non-Transparency

By Anthony ‘AC’ Castellitto

Obama Illegal Assault Weapon Executive Order SC The Audacity of Incompetency, Insecurity, and Non Transparency

There is a reason the American people don’t want to relinquish their guns.

There is a reason why the American people fear their constitutional rights are in jeopardy.

There is a reason why the American people fear their quality of life and the future of their country is at risk.

The reasons are numerous, but it all comes down to one dismal reality: The American people do not trust this administration!

An administration immune to criticism and accountability (in conjunction with a complicit mainstream media that refuses to objectively and critically cover events and developments that may place this president in a bad light) is producing a climate of fear and paranoia across the nation. Unfortunately, at least half the population is either too indifferent or too enamored with the current administration to care.

Tragically, the lies, the scandals, the controversies, and the incompetencies are occurring at an alarming rate. The official response following the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi is a prime example of the politically motivated lies and deceptions promulgated by this administration (and recited verbatim by a biased media that may as well be on the government payroll).

The Obama administration repeatedly told the American people that the Benghazi attack was a spontaneous response to an offensive video posted on You Tube. Now we know this was a planned terrorist attack on ’9-11-12′ against our embassy in Libya. Increased security requests made by U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens (who was killed in the attack) fell on deaf ears, and
the identities of the survivors have yet to be disclosed. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham was finally granted permission to meet with a few of the survivors, and he reports that these survivors are fearful of speaking out (as they were told by the government to keep silent) regarding the events of that tragic day.

This administration recklessly placed politics before responsible leadership as they strategically fostered and enabled a failed foreign policy to become just another critical public exemption leading into the most important presidential election of our lifetime.

Many other disconcerting examples of ‘truth spinning’ abound that support the utter lack of transparency by which this administration operates. Some of the most troubling fabrications offered by our Commander in Chief include: the costs and conditions of government-sponsored healthcare, the administration’s hand in the sequester, the promotion of decreases in government spending and debt reduction, and the extent of government-funded health services provided by Planned Parenthood (specifically the lie that PP provides mammograms).

More troubling are the recent special reports detailing the curious decisions (a few via executive order) that seem to pit the government against its own people, including:

• The creation of a civilian ‘national security’ force.
• A drone program with the authority to strike down U.S. citizens.
• Proposed expansions to domestic spying in the form of personal bank account accessibility granted to multiple intelligence agencies without just cause.
• The purchase of unprecedented amounts of ammunition (and armored vehicles) by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and various other …read more

Issue about PP size

By adilyos

Hello everyone,

I have many VGs on my system. I have created them whith the same command. I haven’t specified the PP size while creating them. Logically, the PP size should be the same (default value) in all the VGs. However, I have different PP size : 32 MB, 256 MB, 64 MB and 128 MB.

Can anyone explain why I haven’t the same PP size ? what’s the PP size default value ?

What’s the utility of having small PP size rather than big PP size ?

Thank you
