    When was the last time you looked at your cell phone and realized that hundreds of thousands of women were raped and 5.4 million people died to produce it?

    Hillary Clinton and like minded Congressional Leaders have named these minerals "Conflict Minerals" sort of like the "blood diamonds" of a few years ago. Militias in the Republic of Congo have used rape and murder as their tools to maintain their control over a country that has the largest deposit of non petroleum resources in the world for the last 15 years, to the tune of 5.4 MILLION people.

    There is a direct link between the worst sexual violence in the world and the electronics industry.

    The proposal is using the auditing process to produce a label for your laptop and/or cell phone that states "Conflict free."

    Would that were the case for the Republic of Congo....:furious::banghead:
