Just connecting a couple of dots

A pencil line between two dots may shed some light on the NSA domestic spying program.

Dot #1: In February of this year, California Democrat Maxine Waters, in a TV interview, reported that President Obama was building the most powerful database of U.S. voters in history [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElHmZnlHuks (Preview)]. Black-oriented TV One from Washington's Roland Martin's show was her stage and she reported, "That database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it's never been done before." She also stated that the power of the information will give Obama lasting political power unseen since the reign of Richard Daley the greater.

Dot #2: The NSA has the ability to gather information on every citizen in this country and would if it were legal. Or if the president decided, he could use the data. The IRS could add in their two cents' worth if it were legal. Or if the president decided, he could use the data. When the health records for all of us are made available, think of what a juicy addition that will make to your total political profile, if that were legal. Or if the president decided, he could use the data.

I have done several connect-the-dots pictures with my granddaughter and know for a fact that you don't need the numbers to see what dots connect and why. I used a pencil so I can erase it if I am wrong. We have all scratched our heads trying to figure out why the IRS and the NSA would do the illegal things they have — and then lied about it. If what Ms. Waters revealed is correct, that could be the actual reason.

Just connecting a couple of dots lightly in pencil!
