I can finally read about the lack of security with Obama’s web contributions from a mainstream media source. This story has been there for weeks and now it is finally being covered (by several outlets over the last few days). My personal opinion here is that this is downright shady. Why spend the time to look through all these transactions after the face when the software exists to handle it on the front end? Think of all the man hours they are supposedly spending to sort out the legit from the shady. A friend of mine from high school had his email, a fake name and some woman’s CC info used to donate to Obama. He is bitter and I would be too.
I pledge more election-related posts in the near future. They will be focused more on the process and less on the candidates themselves because I am, as usual, unhappy with the two primary options. Perhaps it is time to do some research on Bob Barr.

Lest we forget, there are still about 140,000 troops in Iraq. Here is an article from a freelance journalist that I read religiously.
