Too many wolves in sheep's clothing have risen to power to do their misdeeds and gotten away with it in the past by complacency and gullibility on the part of the people who were able to be successfully bamboozled.
Why couldn't that happen here considering the same mentality of half the populace and a media tied around the finger of the power elite who are clearly abusing that power?
This concerns me greatly.
History repeats itself often and I suppose the best we can hope for is that we can dodge the bullet each time Liberals/Media try slipping the noose over America's neck.

Recall when William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer took Americans for fools and got us into the Spanish-American War, for example.

Knowledge of history is critically important toward becoming a good, independent world citizen. That is why Liberal Academia today is focusing in on historical revisionism. Control history and you control the future. This has been done in many countries many times. Stalin, Mao and Hitler are the glaring examples that immediately come to mind.

America's Liberal Media colluding with the Magic Negro is a dangerous mix. One good thing in our favor so far: the World Wide Web. But, even there, the Boy Messiah is making inroads quietly moving FBI, CIA, NSA and who knows who else into spying positions on the Web. The IRS and the AP scandals are just a tip of a dark iceberg.

But, as I said earlier, the Sun also rises. If you see only darkness, you will lose the day. Seize the day.

You need to have your a$$ kicked for this comment. You sound like you have no respect for women (if they are liberal).

What she did was wrong, but you have no right to make violent treats/statments towards people you don't like.

THE FIRST AMENDMENT WAS NOT FOR HARASSMENT. That goes for everyone.

Let's see... IRS executes a systematic criminal program. Congress wants to question some IRS employees.
Perhaps they have some information related to the crimes committed, you goddam idiot.
They're the ONES who started the alleged IRS 'systematic criminal program'. Even Darrell Issa admitted there was any crime here;dolt. LOL

in an Obama society the one making the accusations or doing the whistleblowing is the one who gets audited.

Good. Galt admits that he is also not sure that any crime has been committed by the Obama Administration.

I once posted Chavez's quotes on his rise to power before he got there and became a fascist/communist leader.
If Chavez's name hadn't been attached to those quotes, they could have easily been misinterpreted as Obama's nearly word for word.
Fascist/Communist? or Socialist? or what? Do you know the difference? Or was he a Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist/Com munist/Socialist/Maoist?

If Lerner is granted immunity and still refuses to testify, then she can be charged with contempt of Congress and jailed until she does so.
Not true because, she doesn't have to take the immunity the same way the prosecutor doesn't have to offer it &, Congress holds no weight in a criminal court & can not offer her immunity in a congenial court proceeding or even influence criminal division DA's to cut deals in attempts to further their agenda. It's against the law!

Most developed nations require that significant medical procedures be performed by competent physicians, not herbal medicine quacks.

Obamacare is based on shifting care to sub-professionals, a step backwards.

Lois Lerner: "I have not done anything wrong."

Well, if that's true, then the agency that was her job to manage was running amuck with an organized criminal assault on political opponents of the Democratic Party. And, this unbelievably incompetent bureaucrat is then placed at the head of ObamaKare, Obama's signature piece of work.
Then, instead of assisting an investigation into the criminal activities that she was ignorant of and occurring directly under her, she pleads the 5th Amendment.
Now, why would anyone think she is lying?

Uh-hum!

The new study discovers that changes in the amount of summertime sunlight striking the Northern Hemisphere due to the changes in the Earth's orbital orientation towards the sun is chiefly responsible for the recent alteration between Ice Ages and warmer periods like the one we are currently in. From the studies press release:

"During the warmest period of the Holocene, the Earth was positioned such that Northern Hemisphere summers warmed more," [Shaun] Marcott,[lead author of OSU] said. "As Earth's orientation changed, Northern Hemisphere summers became cooler, and we now should near the bottom of this long term cooling trend - but obviously, we are not."
