This reminds me of Liberalism's core power: emotion.
If the Magic Negro can get them all enraged with altruistic Fairy Tales then rational thought gets tossed out the window and they all hit the streets singing We Shall Overcome.
And trash the Mojave.
The power of an ignorant, raging animal is far more beneficial to the Boy Messiah than the intellect of rational millions.
So.... now you're ok with abortion?

wow.

The IRS has just begun. They are still questioning as many people as possible behind the scenes. The evidence will be presented eventually.
They need to gather enough damning evidence to point to the White House.
It has gone nowhere. Trust me. At least 41 lawsuits against the federal government is about to hit the fan.
The scandal surrounding the Internal Revenue Service's handling of tea party groups took a left turn this week after congressional Democrats revealed that the tax agency had also targeted liberal groups for scrutiny. The revelation led some liberals to declare that the controversy was a manufactured one, created by a partisan Republican (Rep. Darrell Issa of Vista) to taint President Obama.

If only. The new information changes the context profoundly, but it doesn't explain why IRS employees made wholly inappropriate demands for information from politically active groups seeking nonprofit status under Sections 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) of the tax code. Nor does it explain why applications from some groups languished for years while lower-level IRS agents waited in vain for guidance from headquarters.

The scandal has always had two main elements: the "be on the lookout" lists the IRS used to flag certain applicants for special scrutiny, and how that scrutiny was conducted. The first of these issues -- and only the first -- was recast this week when Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.), the top Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, released BOLO lists from August 2010 to April 2013. Although heavily redacted, they revealed that tea party groups were hardly the only ones flagged for extra screening.

Other would-be nonprofit groups singled out include "progressive" or "blue" organizations ("Activities are partisan and appear anti-Republican"), as well as those involved in "Occupied Territory Advocacy" ("Applications may be inflammatory, advocate a one-sided point of view, and promotional materials may signify propaganda"), medical marijuana, paying down the national debt, setting up regional health information exchanges and accountable care organizations and promoting open source software. Some on the BOLO lists had obvious political overtones; others simply presented new questions about who should receive a tax exemption.

The oldest of the BOLO lists released by Levin -- the ones from August 2010 through March 2011 -- indicate that the IRS had been flagging applications from progressive groups for some time, while tea party groups were newly receiving scrutiny. In the case of the former, the list says that "their 'progressive' activities appear to show that (c)(3) may not be appropriate." (Section 501(c)(3) groups collect tax-deductible contributions and may not engage in any campaigning.) For the latter, the list says the applications for (c)(3) or (c)(4) status should be sent to a particular IRS group for review with help from Exempt Organizations Technical, a group of experts in Washington.(Section 501(c)(4) groups collect donations that are not tax-deductible, and they may participate in political campaigns so long as it's not their primary activity.)

You seem to be factually deficient... again, son.

It should be repealed:

"Under the policies of Speaker Pelosi and President Obama, almost 4 million of our countrymen have lost their jobs, since the President has been inaugurated. We have the highest unemployment rate we’ve had in a quarter of a century, not to mention a tripling of the national debt. One thing that our Committee could do, that would take a positive step towards creating more jobs in America, is simply to repeal CRA."

also rain over much of the nation, obviously President Obama's fault.

When President George W. Bush took office on Jan. 20, 2001, the S&P 500 stock market index stood at 1,342.54.

The day he left office, it was 805.22, a drop of 40 percent

Scalia ripped into Kennedy for calling opponents of gay marriage "enemies of the human race".
http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2...
Pretty blistering assessment.
Think I misinterpreted Scalia's quote earlier. He was saying the disease stems from the exalted role of the Supreme Court - not the role of gay marriage. So I was right in my opinion - liberal judges.
For one thing Carol, Justice Kennedy never called opponents of same sex marriage "enemies of the human race". That was Scalia engaging in his usual hyperbolic interpretation of the ruling.
It's ironic that people like you didn't consider it judicial over reach when the previous day the same court gutted the Voting Rights Act but people like you don't mind it when rights are restricted but get your panties in a twist when they expand the rights of those you disapprove of.

This is Galt lying again.

You can put solar panels on your roof across this country & it will generate enough electricity to run your home & make you money.

When it is sunny, you are selling your electric to the power company to fund the electricity you use when the panels are not generating.

the net effect is your panels produce sufficient electric to run your home.

- 1 - president nobama has created no jobs, private industry and business creates jobs
- 2 - Over 6 million have been added to the number of American's who qualify for food stamps. nobama's goal another 5 million added to the food stamp rolls before he leaves office.
Peace

Eed, you keep get dumber every day.

You have bee blaming Obama for the uneployent rate.

But then you say he can't create jobs.

If the President can't create jobs, then he can't possibly fix the unemployment rate, can he.

Well, because "stupid", Planned Parenthood became an abortion institution AFTER Roe v Wade and abortions in hospitals and clinics were illegal except New York BEFORE Roe v Wade.
But I know logic isn't liberals' strongpoint.
Sure Carol, let's put it all on Planned Parenthood an organization that prevents far more abortions than they perform. The fact is that women were getting abortions before Roe v Wade. If you were lucky enough to find a sympathetic physician and could pay for the procedure a doctor would put down a diagnoses that required a D&C and the issue would be taken care of. If you weren't so lucky then you went to a back alley abortionist or self aborted in which case there was a high chance of infection and fatal septicemia .
People like you are so quick to condemn those who make the difficult choice to terminate a pregnancy but don't really care what happens after the child is born. You're always chipping away at the social safety net that would help women keep and raise their children and oppose measures like comprehensive sex education that's been shown to do more in preventing unwanted pregnancies in favor of abstinence only which has been shown to be a total failure.
You haven't demonstrated any kind of logic Carol, only total ignorance.

The investment in solar panels makes the cost per kilowatt hour generated by them noncompetitive.

Example: if I tie up $100K of my money in an investment to earn $1K/year when I could invest that $100K other ways and make $5K/year, I'm losing money.

Does that make your tiny mind hurt?
