Is this a sweetheart deal or what???

It has recently been disclosed that the United States has entered into a contract
with one firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house US Post Offices. The
government has decided that it no longer needs these buildings (many of which
are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country). The sale of these
properties will bring in billions of dollars and, with that, millions of dollars in
commissions for the one company that is in charge of handling the sale and negotiation
of the new leases.

What makes this such a matter of concern is that the company that the Government
has contracted with to conduct the sales (and the corresponding leases for the new
locations of the displaced post offices) is owned by Richard Blum.

What? Didn't that name mean anything to you? Maybe I should re-phrase and say
that the person that owns the company that is solely in charge of this multi-million-
dollar transaction is Richard Blum, the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein .

Diane is toooo busy with her stupid feel-good gun control laws to be concerned with a
conflict of interest and, don't look for Wolf Blitzer or MSNBC, CBS or this liberal ilk
to rat her out.

Amazing!!! Even Berkeley, CA is outraged.

Daily Kos: Selling off the Post Office: Berkeley calls out Richard Blum

Blum is an investor "genius." Much like Joe Biden's brilliant financial advisor, Jon Corzine.
Corruption is alive and well in the United States.

I live in a province that's majority anglo (Ontario), and am at ease in both French and English. That makes me a "frenchy"? Okay, I don't mind.
However, you're frenchier than me, much to the displeasure of the French, I'm sure. Your state is Louisiana. You don't know this, as you are ignorant, but Louisiana was so named for Louis XIV of France. Your capital is Baton Rouge, they don't come any more French than that and again blame your ignorance, you have not a clue what it means. Your main city, New Orleans is in fact La Nouvelle Orléans, loser, again, French. And your civil law is "LE Code Napoléon" right off the French law shelves. Also, many Louisiana citizens originate from our Maritime provinces due to "La déportation des Acadiens". They are called Cajuns (a deformation of their real name, Acadiens)and quite a few have retained a bit of the French language. Hmmm, looks like you're more "frenchy" than me, except you don't know French. Just as an addendum, you don't know very much English either. Must suck to know so very little about one's own environment. Continue wallowing.
Yes, it was the Arabs who figured out how to use the guts of sheep and goats as condoms. But it was the French who figured out it was best to remove the sheep and goat guts before using them as condoms.

The complete Benghazi timeline, now augmented with information from eyewitness testimony before Congress, various leaks from the warring Obama/Clinton camps, Stephen Hayes, Sharyl Attkisson, and the House Oversight Committee [PDF], leads me to four inescapable conclusions.

IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE NOW: ABC, CBS and CNN top executives all have siblings or spouses working directly for Obama

The Democrat Party and the media are indistinguishable from one another and it doesn't take much digging to prove it.

You knew the mainstream media was biased, but this is incredible. It was revealed today that CBS News President David Rhodes' brother is Obama Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes, who was instrumental in rewriting the Benghazi talking points. But it gets worse. It is now learned that ABC President Ben Sherwood's sister, Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, is a Special Assistant to Barack Obama on national security affairs. But even this isn't it! CNN's deputy bureau chief, Virginia Moseley, is the wife of Tom Nides, who until February was Hillary Clinton's deputy.

Scandal's in your brain on which you've been sitting far too long. Get up, let it breathe. Benghazi is NOT a scandal, just bad public relations. It is. As for the rest, IRS, etc, let's let it come out and see. After 5 years In power, Obama's tenure has had fewer scandals than most administrations.
And so far Obama hasnt Sqaundered the Lives of Several Thousand of our Finest young people for nothing except the benefit of Haliburton's shareholders.
I think he deserves some credit for that.
Of course to the likes of the Idealogical and Moral Criples who fly the Birther flag.... they would get far more agitated talking about Monica Lewinkski.

Hey, I was watching CNN last night and they were talkin' about Ben Ghazi, the IRS scandal and .... the buggin' of the Associated Press. And they were not pullin' punches either.
What happened where Richard Nixon accused the press of conspiring against him and then someone leaked Nixon was trying to punish people through the IRS? When the press doubled-down which some on at the IRS.
Now, that Obama has bugged the Associated Press and the IRS scandal gets bigger, the press is turning on Obama!

HELLO, STUIPD!!!
If anything Dufus Dale is predictable. If his car is wet, he must be washing his car.

There are numerous penalties assessed by the IRS under Title 26.

C.f., 26 USC §§ 6662A, 6695, 6707A, etc.

Penalties under the tax code are referred to as "penalties." These are commonly called "tax penalties."

BTW, merely owing taxes on tax day does not necessarily incur a "Penalty".

There is also a penalty provided under 26 USC § 5000A(b)(1)
"In general
If a taxpayer who is an applicable individual, or an applicable individual for whom the taxpayer is liable under paragraph (3), fails to meet the requirement of subsection (a) for 1 or more months, then, except as provided in subsection (e), there is hereby imposed on the taxpayer a penalty with respect to such failures in the amount determined under subsection (c)"

That, dear child, is a "tax penalty." It is a penalty assessed as a tax under the tax code.

DUH!

If Dufus Dale hasn't figured it out yet, under 26 USC § 5000A, the "Requirement to maintain minimum essential coverage," the health insurance requirement under the Affordable Health Care Act, the penalty is assessed under the tax code. I.e., it's a tax, even if you call it a fine.

But according to Dufus Dale's Play Law Dictionary only one penalty under the tax code is really a "tax penalty".

What an infantile little twerp.

Government obtains wide AP phone records in probe
Mon May 13, 2013 2:10 PM
The federal government seized records for more than 20 telephone lines assigned to Associated Press and its journalists in April and May of 2012. In a letter of protest sent to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, AP President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Pruitt said the government sought and obtained information far beyond anything that could be justified by any specific investigation. He demanded the return of the phone records and destruction of all copies.

You gotta make up you mind now, Rogue. Remember, CNN, amongst so many others, is part of the Lame Press. Oh, it suits you to cite it this time. I see. Like you will even cite the Washington Post and MSNBC when it suits you. You see, Rogue, those media, though certainly not perfect and at times with a certain slant, air and publish the real news. After doing that, they then editorialise, leaving no doubt that they are doing so. That is the difference between real journalism and the phoney likes of foxnews.com . wmd.com Washington star.com birthernews.com LMAO (LRs tm reg'd)

Spy Agency Sought U.S. Call Records Before 9/11, Lawyers Say
http://tinyurl.com/egle8 June 30
(Bloomberg)-- The U.S. National Security Agency asked AT&T Inc. to help it set up a domestic call monitoring site seven months before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, lawyers claimed June 23 in court papers filed in New York federal court.

The allegation is part of a court filing adding AT&T, the nation's largest telephone company, as a defendant in a breach of privacy case filed earlier this month on behalf of Verizon Communications Inc. and BellSouth Corp. customers. The suit alleges that the three carriers, the NSA and President George W. Bush violated the Telecommunications Act of 1934 and the U.S. Constitution, and seeks money damages.

``The Bush Administration asserted this became necessary after 9/11,'' plaintiff's lawyer Carl Mayer said in a telephone interview.``This undermines that assertion.''
The lawsuit is related to an alleged NSA program to record and store data on calls placed by subscribers. More than 30 suits have been filed over claims that the carriers, the three biggest U.S. telephone companies, violated the privacy rights of their customers by cooperating with the NSA in an effort to track alleged terrorists.

Telecom Whistleblower Discovers Circuit that Allows Access to All Systems on Wireless Carrier—Phone Calls, Text Messages, Emails and More / April 10, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/4u8nla
Babak Pasdar is a computer security expert who was hired in 2003 to help restructure the tech infrastructure at a major wireless telecommunications company. What he found shocked him. The company had set up a system that gave a third party, presumably a governmental entity, access to every communication coming through that company’s infrastructure. This means every email, internet use, document transmission, video, text message, as well as the ability to listen to and record any phone call.

NSA Analyst: All Americans Were Spied On
24 January 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/d7tjj5
According to former National Security Agency (NSA) analyst Russell Tice, millions of Americans are being spied on. Tice, who worked for the NSA as an analyst for nearly 20 years, said in an interview conducted by MSNBC that “NSA had access to all American’s communications, faxes, phone calls, and their computer communications,” regardless of their location or whether or not they made foreign communications.
During that time, the Bush administration repeatedly assured Americans that only calls to and from foreign nations might be subject to monitoring in the effort to prevent terrorist attacks like 9/11.

Even though all communications from all Americans were potentially intercepted, in interviews Tice says that even though the Agency has the best computers, it’s impossible to monitor every single American directly. Instead, he said they “look at the metadata, the signaling data for communications and ferret that information to determine what communications would ultimately be collected.”
