Let's see....
The IRS admits to targetting conservative organizations, but doesn't admit it was for political purposes.
Even if it wasn't for political purposes, it is still a felony.
Only an idiot doesn't believe it was for political purposes.
Only a sheep pretends to not know this.
So, are you an idiot or a sheep?
So you admit you lied.

The tax exempt status you idiot Tea Party people were seeking said politics could not be their primary focus & you fricken morons sought tax exempt status for "Tea Party This" or "tea Party That".

Its like going into a "No Pets Allowed" area toting a cat carrier & wondering why you were singled out & stopped to see what was in the carrier.

Comprehensive List Of Politicians Accepting “Bribes” From Monsanto

“While there are numerous points of overlap between Monsanto and the United States Government under the Obama administration, the three most important connections are that of Michael Taylor, Roger, Beachy, and Islam Siddiqui—all three of these Monsanto affiliates were appointed to high level positions within the government by the Obama administration.”

HEY STUPID! The levees were and still are the responsibility of the US Army Corps of Engineers, a federal agency. Funds were diverted from the planned and needed repairs to Iraq along with the bulk of the Louisiana National Guard and their high water vehicles which would have come in handy during a hurricane.
Even so...

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin failed to implement an evacuation plan ordering residents to a shelter without any provisions for food, water, security or sanitary conditions.

Nagin delayed an emergency evacuation order which led to hundreds of deaths of people who by that time could not find any way out of the city.

School bus parking lots were full of school buses that Mayor Nagin refused to be used in evacuation.

Local and state governments have the primary responsibility for local disasters including both Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin.

Also, Amtrak ran a special train to move equipment out of the city and had offered to take as many passengers as was room, but the city declined and the train left New Orleans with no passengers on board.

The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service concluded that Blanco did not request assistance with evacuation and that Governor Blanco was reluctant to issue a mandatory evacuation order until President Bush called to personally ask that she give the order. Even then, the mandatory evacuation order was issued by Mayor Nagin.

So even if the funds weren't there and the levees did collapse, the state and local governments failed to save lives that could have been saved and they dropped the ball.

What's even more disturbing is a Representative from the New Orleans area used National Guard resources to check on his own personal belongings and property during the height of the rescue efforts. He used his political position to delay two heavy trucks, a helicopter and several National Guard troops for over an hour to stop at his home and retrieve "a laptop computer, three suitcases, and a box about the size of a small refrigerator".

There you have it. The priority mentaility of a liberal.

There are four investigations being launched because of the IRS-I suggest everyone who had any contact with the O'bama thugs should report it:

Bloggers were also targeted and now we know why-O'bama stole the election.

This pre date 4 presidential terms, or did you just conveniently overlook that fact
Well, couldn't find anything about that but did find this.

The system has been swamped by a quarter million new claims from a change in regulations that allowed more Vietnam veterans to file disability claims from exposure to the pesticide Agent Orange.

On top of that, veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan whose lives were saved by advances in battlefield medicine are now filing claims at a record rate.

Forty-five percent of them are filing a claim which is apparently unprecedented in terms of the number of veterans filing a claim.

Also this.

The report by the Government Accountability Office found that more than 200 firms had sprouted up across the country to help veterans “restructure” assets so they can appear indigent and therefore eligible for tax-free pensions which can pay more than $20,000 a year.

The report placed partial blame for the problems on the Department of Veterans Affairs, saying it has unclear eligibility rules, does not systematically verify financial information and uses forms that do not require applicants to report asset transfers and other financial details.

No matter whose fault it is, if it's not resolved quickly, it might very well undermine recruiting in the military. That won't be good.

It snowed in a few New England states yesterday a week before June.
It's going to be summer and hot soon enough though. You might try selling the global warming "it's getting hot in here" theorgy next month.
Before early record snows begin falling again in November.
And this last week of May ,the Northeastern states will be facing its first 90 degree or more heatwave of the 'summer' as southern regions continue heating up-- the hotter weather in the south as it moves northward will clash with the colder , upper level disturbance causing the freak snow-showers(heavy precipitation) and create one of the preconditions for the super-storm tornadoes in the mid-west and prairie regions. What can be more of an example of extreme weather events in climate change?

This should be obvious to everyone. People are really divided into two groups: Those who don't pretend to believe the obvious lies coming out of the Democrats' mouths, and those who pretend to believe the obvious lies.
Galt is spouting the N.R.A. position-- keep local law enforcement from doing their jobs on keeping the streets safe so the greater gun violence can drive panic buying of more guns from the N.R.A.'s primary clients--the corporate gun & ammo industry. The N.R.A. and the U S gun industry put profits above human needs. That's morally disgusting and wrong!

I can be longwinded sometimes, but we all agree veterans' not receiving benefits is a big problem.

No pointing fingers of blame at anyone but somebody needs to fix this.

Perhaps hiring people in the private sector who know how to sort it all out is the solution?

Let's see now...
News release Friday before a long holiday weekend:
Eric Holder commits a felony and signs authority to bug journalists without any evidence of a crime of any type being investigated.
Let's read the 4th Amendment again:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
What this means is: First, Eric Holder does not have the constitutional authority to issue a warrant; and Second, there was no "Oath of affirmation" made to any judge who has the constitutional authority to issue a warrant.
Here is evidence with Eric Holder's signature on paper of Eric Holder committing a felony.
What do you think is going to happen now? I'll predict the future: RINOs will perform their assigned function and obstruct any justice coming from Congress.
“After extensive deliberations, and after following all applicable laws, regulations and policies, the Department sought an appropriately tailored search warrant under the Privacy Protection Act,” said a department official, referring to a federal law that governs under what circumstances information can be subpoenaed from the news media.“And a federal magistrate judge made an independent finding that probable cause existed to approve the search warrant.”

Nevertheless, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, Holder “understands the concerns that have been raised by the media and has initiated a re-evaluation of existing department policies and procedures.” The official said the department must strike “the appropriate balance” between preventing leaks of classified information and “First Amendment rights,”adding that passage of a new media shield law “and appropriate updates to the department”s internal guidelines” will help achieve that.

I think you better read my post, & if you already have, reread it! You're preaching to the choir on that one buddy! You people watched Bush tear the the prosperity Clinton built to shambles, then reelected him under the retarded ideology of " Bush messed it up, let him fix it!" Lol. & you're pointing the finger. Seriously!

Yes, of course,'people in the private sector'---you mean big insurance corporations who have already denied U S military veterans healthcare coverage for secret unspecified reasons or 'preexisting conditions'.
