Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Report: IRS D.C. office investigated applications for non-profit status
Both Democrats and Republicans are calling for an investigation of what happened, though Republicans appear more interested in making it a political issue than Democrats. The Republican Governors' Association, for example, called on the president to name a special prosecutor.
I'm sure this won't happen, but hopefully Congressional investigators will remember the reason the IRS is involved in investigating these groups in the first place is that under current law, the IRS—not the Federal Elections Commission—is responsible for regulating these groups. There's no justification for targeting them on the basis of political affiliation, but on the other hand, it's not like the IRS should abdicate its responsibility to enforce the law.
I'm sure conservatives would love a scenario where the IRS simply rubber-stamped the tax-exempt status applications of every conservative group, but if the IRS did that, what would the point be of having laws in the first place? Moreover, the idea that conservatives are the only groups that have ever been singled out is ridiculous—liberals were targeted for political reasons during the Bush years.
Bottom-line: This is a serious issue, but if conservatives approach it as a partisan game, it'll turn into another Benghazi probe, and quickly.

The IRS asked many illegal questions. Guess what the IRS did not deny tax exempt status to a single case they investigated. Did you find it a little strange they did not ask liberal groups the same questions?

The "axis of evil" was almost comical.
Mohammed Atta was the driving force behind 9/11, it may have been another person's idea to commandeer passenger jets and then use them as missiles against US landmarks but Atta made it happen and frankly OBL was not Atta's mentor.
But after piloting one of the planes into the side of the WTC, Atta no longer had a fkn face did he? And as an Egyptian he wasn't exactly a Saudi was he?
Hmmph
I think it was bin Laden declaring war on us that became the face of terrorism after 9/11. Pretty sure.

But I did learn something today. The song "What a Difference a Day Makes" was written about Social Security and receiving the first check. Anyone born on or after the 3rd of the month does have to wait two months. The lucky ones born on the 2nd or the 1st have to wait only one month.
Where on Earth did you get that from?

The first day of the month is the only one that matters, and the difference is one month versus no months.

The IRS & he right whiner groups.
After Citizen's United SC decision, thousands of groups were looking for tax exempt status as a way of funding political campaigns.
Under the code for that type of tax exempt organization, the IRS defines it as:
"the promotion of social welfare does not include direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office." That said, "a section 501(c)(4) social welfare organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity."
So, how do you determine if these political agendas were not the primary activity?
"real dumb"
Answer one question. Why did not the IRS ask a single liberal 501 (c)(4) organization the same illegal questions?

The witch hunt of liberal churches happened under the leadership of IRS commissioner Mark Whitty Everson, a Republican appointed by George W. Bush in 2003. Another Bush appointee, Douglas Schulman, headed the IRS during the scrutiny of Tea Party groups seeking non-profit status in 2012. Schulman's term ended on November 11, after the 2012 election.

At the same time IRS compliance agents were demanding all papers and email related to sermonizing in the liberal Pasadena church, right-leaning churches across the country aggressively registered voters and brought Republican candidates to Sunday services to give campaign speeches.

....That the IRS under a Republican administration deliberately targeted liberal California churches has been forgotten in the manufactured outrage of the Republican Party's Tea Party-IRS scandal. That the IRS was still under the control of a Bush appointee during the 2012 scrutiny of new non-profits that self-identified with the Republican Party's Tea Party movement is also little mentioned, because the president is a popular Democrat.

Did you happen to catch the NAACP's response today to the Magic Negro's using the IRS to browbeat Conservatives?

They played the Race Card. SURPRISE!!!

They called the Tea Party racist and that the IRS had every right to investigate racist organizations!!!!

Following this formula, the NAACP should have been put out of bidniss ages ago.

American Jews are giving up on Israel

The most worrying news that came out of the U.S. presidential elections was that American Jews seem to have lost interest in Israel.

Just 10 percent of American-Jewish voters said Israel was their highest priority when they went to the polls, according to a recent exit poll conducted by the pro-peace Israel lobby J Street. Nine out of 10 said domestic issues like job rates and health care were their top concerns. This is despite the fact that the Republicans and Jewish activists, many of whom are supporters of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, told countless horror stories about what they described as Barack Obama's plot to throw Israel to the Iranian wolves.

president nobama has only been in office 4+ years. At least get the dates right. In the last 4 plus years, since obama took office, what have we seem;
- A higher unemployment rate
- Fewer American's with jobs
- Record number of American's using food stamps
- Home values lower
- Average American household income down
Shitthe value of your dumpster over looking Lake Elsinore, has decreased by over $100, now it is only worth $533 dollars, your tax on that 6 bits? Oh well that means you are contributing a little bit.
