'Finally someone is saying what I've been thinking about the IRS-TEA party "scandal." There's no scandal here--just the IRS doing their job, looking into organizations that evidently are violating the law. AND if you loudly proclaim that you think the income tax is illegal, dontcha think you just might be at risk of being audited to see if you are putting your beliefs into practice?
From the article:
"the real scandal...is that 501(c)(4) groups have been engaged in political activity in such a sustained and open way. As Fred Wertheimer, the President of Democracy 21, a government-ethics watchdog group, put it,'it is clear that a number of groups have improperly claimed tax-exempt status as section 501(c)(4)‘social welfare’ organizations in order to hide the donors who financed their campaign activities in the 2010 and 2012 federal elections.'" Washington’s scandal machinery, rusty from recent disuse, is cranking back up to speed due to the alleged targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said,“It’s the kind of thing that scares the American people to their core. When Americans are being targeted for audits based on their political beliefs, that needs to change.” Senator Susan Collins, of Maine, called on the President to apologize. George Will said President Obama could be impeached. Obama himself is taking the path of contrition. At a news conference Monday, the President said,“If in fact I.R.S. personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that’s outrageous. And there’s no place for it.” More hearings, with more outrage, are planned.
In light of this, it might be useful to ask: Did the I.R.S. actually do anything wrong?" Check this out: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/comment...
Didn't the New Yorker just publish another BS article just recently that was discredited as liberal horse manure?

Pretty sure it did.

The words "New York" in "New Yorker" should give you a hint they aren't going to be fair and balanced in their elitist bias.

<quoted text> So if Obama had the CIA do the job, there would've been no need to smoke him out, or blow away the door. How hard would it have been to tell Stevens to meet so & so at the consulate & kidnap him without a fight? He was under orders so, if he were told to come alone, he would've. Secondly, there are small explosive devices made for just blowing off doors so, that kills you little theory ! That theory is no more than right wrong conspiracy spin that you've bought into like Enron stock. It makes no sense. There are a thousand ways to have Stevens kidnapped without conspiring with the enemy! More better & effective ways!
Yeah... until someone leaks it out. We all know how unlikely it would be for information to be leaked out of the government.
Al Qaeda wasn't losing men during the attack because the White House (Vallerie Jarrett, Obama isn't even involved in government) ordered all units to not engage Al Qaeda while they attempted to kidnap Stevens.
Al Qaeda had explosives, RPGs and hand grenades. Why didn't they just blow the door away and light him up with their AKs? Because blowing the door might kill Stevens, and the intent was to kidnap Stevens, not kill him.
The only reason Al Qaeda attacked a, how did you denigrate it, "temporary rented consular building in Bumfuck Libya" was to kidnap an ambassador of the United States of America. Here's what the plan was:
The security for the ambassador would be reduced by the administration making it easier to kidnap the ambassador. During the attack, the White House (Vallerie Jarrett) would issue orders with presidential authority to stand down any US Armed Forces assets that were pre-positioned specifically to respond to specifically a terrorist attack specifically on our embassy specifically in Libya. Then, the White House would lie to cover up Al Qaeda's involvement while the network "news" programs would mislead the country concentrating on where Stevens was, what condition he was in, and the progress of the "negotiations" with the Muslim Brotherhood, who has a permenant presence in the White House, to exchange Stevens for that terrorist blind sheik in prison for attempting to murder 30 THOUSAND Americans.
However, Plan A went wrong and the ambassador died of smoke inhalation when Al Qaeda tried to smoke him out of the room he baricaded himself in.

And, just like Al Bundy, nobody in the White House had a plan B.
Even you have to laugh at the bufoonery in the White House today.
I'd laugh if it were happening in some other country.

Another indication that progress is being made was found in the recent presidential election in the United States. The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.
http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/...
nobody knows who won the election. In just the state of Ohio, there were 70 precincts around the city of Cleveland where, in hundreds of thousands of votes, not one crackhead, not one illiterate dropout, not one confused elderly voter (remember Florida?), nobody pressed the wrong button by mistake. That is an impossibility.
It's child's play to find the location where the computers were programmed to steal 100 percent of the vote. It's impossible to find the locations where programs were written to steal one in three or one in four votes.
Well, let's have a recount.
Oh. Well, that can't happen because THERE'S NOTHING TO COUNT.

We no longer have a democracy. Next on the agenda is the Constitution.
What do you think it will take to restore democracy to this country?

Goldwater was a Libertarian, not a racist
A review of Senator Barry Goldwater’s record shows that he was a Libertarian, not a
racist.
Goldwater was a member of the Arizona NAACP and was involved in
desegregating the Arizona National Guard.
Goldwater
sup
ported the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and the Civil Rights Act of 1960
, as
well as the constitutional amendment banning the poll tax. His opposition to the more comprehensive Civil
Rights Act of 1964 was based on his libertarian views about government. Goldw
ater believed that the 1964 Act,
as written, unconstitutionally extended the federal government's commerce power to private citizens, furthering
the government’s efforts to "legislate morality" and restrict the rights of employers.
It is instructive to r
ead the entire text of Goldwater's 1964 speech at the 28th Republican National Convention,
accepting the nomination for president that is available from the Arizona Historical Foundation.
By the end of
his career, Goldwater was one of the most respected m
embers of either party
and was considered a
stabilizing influence in the Senate. Senator Goldwater's speech may be found also on the Internet at:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp
-
srv/politics/daily/may98/goldw aterspeech.htm
Barry Goldwater was the ultimate traditional Conservative...not a Libertarian, not a religious wacko, and most certainly not a racist.

So, you're sticking with the idea each & every CIA report is 100% vetted before the President is made aware.
The President would be notified but told it had yet to be conformed.
Nice Try.
According to Novak, he understood that Plame worked for the CIA & that is what was printed but did not know she was involved as a secret agent or covert operative.
When it is common knowledge on the Washington party circuit that a person works for the CIA, how can they be "involved as a secret agent or covert operative."

Back your bullshit up with facts. I'll help you. Here's the actual numbers:
http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/
And, you continually use verbiage indicating your ignorance of how the government of the United States works. I'll help you there, too. Here's a link to a document that describes in detail how the government of the United States raises revenue and spends money:
http://usconstitution.com/
Now, after you read the document in the second link, use that knowledge when you quote the numbers in the first link to form your conclusions.
I'll give you a short history:
(We actually had a...) budget ... with a surplus
Dot-com bust
Arabs declare war on the United States
deficit grows to 500 billion dollars fighting the war the Arabs started.
Republicans turn over to the Democrats all the purse strings of government with a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillioin dollar deficit and a total public debt of 8.5 trillion dollars (having increased 3.5 trillion dollars subsequent to the dot-com bust and the Arabs declaring war on the United States).
The Democrats increased the deficit ONE THOUSAND PERCENT.
The Democrats doubled the debt to the 17 trillion dollars it is today.
The Democrats have not produced a budget since Obama took office.
The Democrats have no plan to stop borrowing for the day-to-day existence of government.
An idiot can tell you this government the Democrats are running is certain to collapse... which would be a logical part of any plan Marxist communists would have to take over a capitalist country.
Now, please tell us what the numbers are, and then describe for us your conclusions based on the actual numbers.
You will receive no credit for the usual propaganda bullshit you post here.
Why do you consider the Democrats responsible for 2007 & 2008 but not the Republicans in 2011, 2012, 2013? With the filibuster in the Senate, both situations are basically the same.

Why does taking spending off budget makes you think the money is somehow not spent? Would it have pleased you, if in 2010, we took Iraq & Afghanistan spending off budget to reduce the budget deficit?

In a general election, there is no need to actually endorse a candidate if one just endorses lower taxes. The choice is obvious.

All men fear you? Name 1.
All women love you? Name 1.
Based on the posts directed at they would indicate that;
- All women puke at the mention of your name
- All men despise you.
When will you start telling stories, lies, again? There must be some make believe exploits you have not shared.
