Do you believe this?!!! Homeland Security instructions to Border Patrol??!!!!

The instructions on the pamphet and a mandatory computer tutorial from Homeland Securtiy tells these border patrol members to "run away and hide"!!!!

Border Patrol agents in Arizona are blasting their bosses for telling them, along with all other Department of Homeland Security employees, to run and hide if they encounter an "active shooter."
It's one thing to tell civilian employees to cower under a desk if a gunman starts spraying fire in a confined area, say members of Tucson Local 2544/National Border Patrol Council, but to give armed law enforcement professionals the same advice is downright insulting.

Google??!!! ---- Anti-Gun Policy

More information @ http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articles/2012/google-adopts-anti-gun-policy.aspx

Internet giant Google has adopted a new and discriminatory policy with respect to the advertising of firearms, ammunition and related products. The change affects the firm's "Google Shopping" function.

For years, Google has refused to sell preferred advertising to sellers of these goods.  That means Google search results don't show those products in featured positions, such as at the top of the page or on the right side of the screen.  The products do show up among the regular search results.
