Barack Obama, our next President

HEY STUPID! The only thing the IRS has to do with health care reform is to verify that an individual have insurance coverage. The IRS doesn't get access to anyone's medical records you damned liar.
Your statement that Obamacare will leave more people uninsured is also a lie. The reason many people will remain uninsured is that many red states are opting out of Medicaid expansion. It's Republican governors and legislatures who are denying their citizens coverage for purely political reasons.

A class-action lawsuit filed in federal court in San Diego says 15 IRS agents illegally seized the medical records of more than 10 million Americans, including California judges and their families, members of the Screen Actors Guild and Major League Baseball players.

The lawsuit, filed last month in Superior Court by Malibu, Calif., lawyer Robert E. Barnes on behalf of an unnamed firm — identified in court records as the “John Doe Company”— seeks $25,000 in compensatory damages for each victim for violations of Fourth Amendment rights, which guard against unreasonable searches and seizures.

The lawsuit comes at a time the IRS is under heavy criticism for its targeting of conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has ordered an investigation to determine if the activities amount to criminal behavior.

Once removed and to make an example of our strong principles we need to enact a new holiday to memorialize the fact that this is America and that we, as a nation, won't stand tyranny by any of its leaders, past present or future.

If Hillary is still entertaining the idea of running for president now, she is proving herself a glutton for punishment.
She will be run over by that one clip, "what difference does it make???" (that four Americans died under her watch), and that clip will back up and run over her again, back up and run over her again and again and again.
It will be the only ad necessary.
Other than the proof she lied under oath.
Actually Carol, Hillary's approval ratings have gone up since the Benghazi hearings. She didn't imply that it didn't matter that four Americans died on her watch stupid, she said it didn't matter what the motivation behind the attack was. In no way did she lie under oath. The only liar here is you.
But go ahead keep living in your little alternate universe.

American exceptionalism is a dangerous myth

Move beyond Tea Party lies and phony patriotism. This Memorial Day, let's remember our history honestly.

....Whatever the Tea Party’s unconscious motivations and meanings—and I count these significant to an understanding of the group—we can no longer make light of its political influence; it has shifted the entire national conversation rightward—and to an extent backward, indeed. But more fundamentally than this, the movement reveals the strong grip of myth on many Americans—the grip of myth and the fear of change and history. In this, it seems to me, the Tea Party speaks for something more than itself. It is the culmination of the rise in conservatism we can easily trace to the 1980s. What of this conservatism, then? Ever since Reagan’s “Morning in America” campaign slogan in 1984 it has purported to express a new optimism about America. But in the Tea Party we discover the true topic to be the absence of optimism and the conviction that new ideas are impossible. Its object is simply to maintain a belief in belief and an optimism about optimism. These are desperate endeavors. They amount to more expressions of America’s terror in the face of history. To take our country back: Back to its mythological understanding of itself before the birth of its own history is the plainest answer of all.

Fox News Throws Out Benghazi With Yesterday’s Scandal Trash

It seems incomprehensible that there were once such emphatic calls for Barack Obama’s impeachment due to the Libyan attacks; that pundits envisioned him being driven from office; that Watergate analogies spread like a plague. Because in recent days there has been hardly a mention of any of it. Fox News, who was blanketing their airwaves with Benghazi Fever a week ago, have all but ignored the story this week. Having failed to ignite a fire under Obama’s presidency, the Benghazi affair has been consigned to the garbage heap of history. Along with such other notable pseudo-scandals as Solyndra, Fast & Furious, gun confiscations, the climate change hoax, Sharia Law, death panels, pallin’ around with terrorists, and the Kenyan nativity, Benghazi has been picked clean by the vultures of the Tea-publican prairie, and having concluded that there is no meat left on the bones, they see no reason to stick around.

That is not to say that the rightist mobs have abandoned their mission to destroy Obama. They have just refocused their attention on a younger, prettier scandal peeking out from behind the skirts of the sultry Internal Revenue Service. This is now the new gate-suffixed controversy that demands immediate impeachment hearings and affiliated witch trials.

The ease with which the Wingnut Inquisitionists shift from one hysteria to another reveals something foundational about their character. It is obvious that they couldn’t care less about the patriots who died in Benghazi or their grieving families. They don’t care about the policies that impact the security of Americans in foreign territories. They only care about how tragedies such as these can be exploited politically, and when it becomes apparent that their political punch has petered out, they can’t abandon them quickly enough.

So it’s off with Benghazi and on to the IRS – for now. Rest assured that this too shall pass as soon as the Obama-bashers realize that they can’t hang this one around his neck either. So even the legitimate concerns raised with regard to the abuse of power and politicization of the taxing agency will go unanswered. Without an Obama angle, Fox and their GOP benefactors see no reason to pursue it. They would rather not waste their time cleaning up the IRS – or securing diplomatic embassies, or mandating universal background checks for assault weapons, or stimulating the economy and creating jobs, or performing any of the other functions of governing – unless it could lead to toppling Obama.

One thing you can say for them is that they have a single-minded devotion to purpose. And their purpose has nothing whatsoever to do with serving America or its people. Their purpose is, and has always been, to deep-six a president they never considered legitimate; who was never patriotic enough, Christian enough, smart enough, or white enough.

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.

Riots and unrest in Sweden, just like Greece...

"The left, which dominated Swedish politics for decades and devised the cradle-to-grave welfare system, has blamed reduced state benefits and a modest shift toward the privatization of public services for the unrest"...

So what are the Democrats pushing here in the USA?

To be like Sweden & Greece.

It's called "bidniss" in Chicago.
Obama wasn't even elected to the Presidency yet. It was the Bush43 Administration that offered the GM bailout without accountability for paying it back to the tax payer. Once Obama replaced Bush43 as President, Obama set out to make sure the American people(GM employees and consumers) best interests were protected in the GM survival deal.

Congressional investigations found the old Orleans Levee Board more interested in managing a casino license and two marinas than looking after levees. Inspections were ceremonial, millions of dollars were spent on a fountain and overpasses rather than on levee protection. And there was confusion over who was responsible for managing the fragmented levee system, U.S. Senate investigations revealed.
Experts agree poor levee designs by the corps and the sheer strength of Katrina get the lion's share of the blame.

"Poor levee designs and strength of Katrina get lion's share of the blame." Didn't see George W. Bush's name anywhere in any article as being the source of blame.
You have no idea what you're talking about. There was nothing structurally wrong with the New Orleans levees---they were built to specs to resist storms up to a Category 3 hurricane. The scientific data was ignored that climate scientist's were making predictions that more extreme storms would form closer to coastal regions as climate worsened from man-made greenhouse gasses pollution--no one expected a Category 5 Katrina superstorm!
