Barack Obama, our next President

We're left wondering who exactly is in charge of this government?
The president's top officials knew what was going on with the IRS months ago.
Shulman, IRS Commissioner, met with Obama 118 times. Bush met with IRS officials two or three times in 8 years.
That either means Obama was left completely out of the loop and someone else was in charge or he is feigning innocence.
He can't win either way.
So what was going on with the IRS Carol? I'll tell you. The staff in the Cincinnati office were doing their jobs the best they could considering the flood of 401C applications and the limited resources they had. The IRS is required to determine whether organizations applying for special tax status are "social welfare" groups or are instead engaged in political activity. Political groups cannot get the special tax status these groups were applying for.
Only one-third of the groups that were passed to specialists for a closer look were "conservative." Lots of other organizations were also checked, including progressive organizations.
No conservative organizations were denied their tax exempt status.
Just another phony "scandal" cooked up by the right wing and swallowed whole by gullible fools like you.
I think the Obama administration was wrong to fire or suspend anybody in this case.

Issa is not the President of the United States.
If, however, Obama, who IS the President, knew the IRS was targeting his enemies months before it became news and did not take action to stop it, that is an impeachable offense.
We only have to wait until the people creating a stonewall around him begins to crack.
There are too many people too close to him who did know.
If they kept him out of the loop, they should all be fired. If he does not fire them, it's just a matter of time before Obama, himself, is implicated in this coverup. The other two coverups will then matter again at that point.
One more time stupid, there was no "targeting" . The only groups that were denied tax exempt status were progressive groups. Not one conservative group was denied. The IRS is required to check whether or not a group requesting tax exempt status fulfills the requirement.

If you don't think conservative groups and average citizens were "targeted" because of their political ideology by the climate set by this administration and the opposition being the "enemy", you are out of the loop and on your own. But good luck with that.

frontporch goes French.

The IG report states that conservative groups were targeted. The POTUS agrees with the report and states it is wrong.

So do we believe the moronic Progressives or reality?

The nation believes reality -the IRS targeted conservative groups.

Progressives are lemmings that are easily fooled by some shady website.

Yes I knew someone was going to bring these riots up but they had nothing to do with the austerity measures that Greece faces, they were a spontaneous response to a police killing.
While the youth unemployment rate is high in Sweden it's nothing compared to Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland all members of the Euro zone.
OH - I see libtard, it must have been the VIDEO!

Not so fast moron. You are lying just like a typical

scumbag D e m o c R A T.

This test is right near the beginning of the article:

"Despite Sweden's reputation for equality, the rioting has exposed a faultline between a well-off majority and a minority, often young people with immigrant backgrounds, who cannot find work,"

"who cannot find work"

"who cannot find work"

"who cannot find work"

The definition of common good is "the advantage or benefit of all people in society or in a group."

Used in context: In spite of our differences, we shall work for the common good.

The common good in this society - the advantage and benefit of all people - is equal opportunity.

It means we all have to work and pull our own weight to have those advantages and benefits and give back to help those in need through no fault of their own. Bad times can fall on anyone until they're back on their feet again.

But it only works when the government isn't stifling opportunity.

HEY STUPID! Greece's problems don't have anything to do with any kind of "socialist policies" but from the fact that they were suckered into joining the Euro zone and in the process lost control of their currency. Other countries like Sweden, Norway and Denmark all of which nitwits like you would describe as "socialistic" didn't buy into that scam and are doing just fine.
By the way moron the Obama phones that right wingers love to trot out is actually a 28 year old program called Lifeline that was signed into law by Ronald Reagan and renewed by George HW Bush.
