John Boehner is a modern pseudo liberal within the Republican Party too just like the Democrats have besides his congressional is mostly the entitlement society which is why don't care for that part of Ohio.

IRS singling out of 'Tea Party' being investigated

Lerner said none of the groups subjected to extra scrutiny by the IRS has been rejected yet for tax-exempt status.

For that reason, a legal damages claim against the IRS by the conservative groups was unlikely, said Marcus Owens, a lawyer at the firm of Caplin & Drysdale.

A former IRS tax-exempt division director, Owens has since represented a range of nonprofit organizations. "It's hard to find the injury there," he said, adding that IRS scrutiny historically has focused on trying to determine if 501(c)(4) groups are politically active or not.

Still denying Adfghanistan attacked us, I see.
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.
That's the most insane fiction I've ever heard! The CIA have been known to execute these type of operations. Why would Obama need Al Qaeda to do what he has the power to order his own people to do? It's not like Al Qaeda was losing men during the attack. They had no need to smoke him out. They has grenades, RPGs& assault weapons. If they wanted Stevens, they would've got him alive. It's not like he was armed!

The Democrats had a super majority in the Senate for about 6 months during 2009.
The first derivative of the deficit being negative would indicate that the deficit is decreasing.
The second derivative being zero would meant that the decrease is a constant. Wouldn't you want the second derivative to be negative that would show the rate of the decreases to be increasing? i.e ever year we decrease the deficit by a higher amount?
Just checking,. I mean , I am sure you, being a pretend engineer, you probably think you actually know something about calculus.
BTW, deficits spiked in 2009 & have been basically decreasing.
If you look at these graph, the first derivative would be negative ,.
This makes you both an idiot & a liar.
http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/federal_d...
Look at the first derivative of both debt and deficit. Tell us about how the first derivative has a large positive magnitude while the Democrats have a super majority in the Senate and a dominant majority in the House. Look at the second derivative. You'll discover the debt and deficit are not only increasing, but there is an accelleration component. Now, tell us how the first derivative of the deficit actually becomes zero after the TEA Party begins to influence Congress, and the first derivative of the debt becomes a constant, and the second derivative becomes zero.
What we need is for the first derivative of the deficit to be negative. We can survive with a negative first derivative and a second derivative of zero. With a positive second derivative of the debt, anyone can tell you that government is certain to collapse.

In short, the TEA Party saved the country.

You seem to confuse the basic properties of arithmetic with being applicable to differential equations.
A negative second derivative does not make the result of the equation positive when the first derivative is also negative. A negative first derivative with a zero second derivative produces a constant decline, which is what we need.

Now, back to the subject you are avoiding:

Tell us about your calculations of the first and second derivatives of the debt and deficit before and after the TEA Party began to influence Congress.

The TEA Party saved the country should be your conclusion if you know how to do differential equations.

So, your question is, why would Obama need Al Qaeda to kidnap a US ambassador when he could do it himslef, right?
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:

By comparison, President OBAMA HAS BEEN THE GRASSHOPPER, encouraging more citizen grasshoppers.
Under his presidency, 7.5 million individuals have left the work force, another 5.4 million have signed up to collect disability, and student loans have skyrocketed to more than a trillion dollars.
In 2011, Obama also changed the law to reverse the Clinton-era welfare reform, allowing welfare to be given to those not seeking work.
The consequences have been devastating.
The Obama Administration borrows $3.5 billion every day. Our accumulated debt is more than $15 trillion,$5 trillion just from the last few years.
Yet as our deficit and debt continues to grow, the Administration pushes irrelevant “fixes” such as the “Buffet rule” which would affect only 217,000 Americans and hardly nick the deficit.
And what happened when real solutions were proposed? President Obama’s approach has ranged from apathetic to hostile. He ignored the balanced approach of the group he created, the Simpson-Bowles Commission, for a path to cut the deficit.
And when the House, led by Ryan, passed a long-term budget cutting the deficit, the President raised hopes by calling a White House event in which he seated Ryan in the front. To everyone’s surprise, he castigated, mischaracterized and dismissed the effort and presented no alternative.
Obama continuously proves he is the “emperor with no clothes.”

Obviously you are ignorant of what happens when the IRS merely identifies you as a target.

As an example, I just wrote a check for almost 5,000 dollars to the IRS about a discrepancy they claim in my 2011 tax return. My lawyer said it would cost me about that same amount to contest it.
Now, that's coincidentally like a tactic I use in negotiations. I assess a value to a point being negotiated, and I work around arguments of approximately equal value until the opposition concedes.

When the IRS targets you, all normal functions cease and you go into a completely different mode of operation, regardless of guilt or innocence.
You'd know this if you have any knowledge of what happens in the world that actually exists all around you.
