Dear Editor:

As the Obama administration proposes gun control measures through Executive Orders, thus bypassing all legislative processes, has evidently, through a United States Department of Justice, been illegally running guns through a program it colloquially called, "Fast and Furious."

The evidence suggests the disturbing possibility, that the Justice Department has not only allowed criminals to smuggle weapons, but that taxpayer dollars were utilized from other agencies to finance those engaging in such activities.

The allegations are currently being investigated by Darrell Issa's House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform which is also looking into other allegations that other federal agencies, including the FBI and DEA, were involved in "Fast and Furious."

So while the administration clamps down on the Second Amendment right to bear arms, it appears to be aiding and abetting the criminal elements south of the U.S. border with taxpayer funded arms and munitions.

On another note. The Idaho Statesmen reported that a Chinese national company Sinomach is interested in developing a 10,000- to 30,000-acre technology zone for industry, retail centers and homes just south of the Boise Airport. Which could significantly shift the balance of power between the United States and China.

The Chinese State Company, Sinomach is attracted to Idaho in part; because of the lack of infrastructure there. Which means it has more opportunity, in its long march of domination over the Western hegemony. As the (sic) 'technology zone' would not be subject to the jurisdiction of Idaho, or the United States.

Maybe after the Administration completes its arming of Chinese allies south of the border, and disarms America, local area planners could entice Sinomach - to take over 'Commerce Park,' here in the county.

The measure would in part re-industrialized the local area, with wages of course not being above those comparable with a Chinese laborer - that is $0.57 per hour -- or $104 per month -- which is about 3 percent of the current average U.S. manufacturing worker's wages.

This would complement the new Ivy Tech facility being built in Commerce Park - tentatively...
