COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.– A Democratic campaign office here usually would be quiet this time of year, a few weeks after the state's legislature wrapped up work and lawmakers headed off to summer vacations.

But even though it's not an election year, the office is in full campaign mode, with volunteers working the phones and reviewing maps in anticipation of a new front of modern campaigning -- the recall phase.

A handful of Democratic state lawmakers in Colorado face recall petition efforts in what looks to be the first wave of fallout over legislative votes to limit gun rights. In an era in which recall efforts are booming, from governor's offices down to town councils and school boards, the Colorado efforts will serve as the first test of gun-rights groups' ability to punish elected officials who expanded gun control laws after last year's Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn., shooting massacres.

In Colorado, gun-rights activists wasted no time seeking recalls to oust state Senate President John Morse and three other Democratic lawmakers. The targeted lawmakers weren't necessarily the main advocates for ratcheting back gun rights, but all come from districts with enough Republicans to give opponents hope they can boot out the Democrats and replace them with lawmakers friendlier to guns. Colorado is the only state outside the East Coast to have adopted significant statewide gun controls this year.

"Colorado seems to be the testing ground for some of the gun measures, so this has national implications," said Victor Head, a plumber from Pueblo who is organizing a recall attempt against a Democratic senator.

Syrian Rebels Urge McCain to Get Over Losing to Obama
Posted by Andy Borowitz
SYRIA (The Borowitz Report)—During a meeting yesterday with Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), Syrian rebels told the senator that he still seemed “really bitter” about losing the 2008 election to President Obama and advised him to “get over it.”
After meeting with the Arizona senator in the border region near Turkey, a spokesman for the Syrian rebels told reporters that while they appreciated Sen. McCain’s support,“We were kind of uncomfortable with the place it was coming from.”
“It was pretty obvious to me and the other rebels that everything McCain was doing was just to get back at Obama,” the rebel spokesman said.“And we were like, look, that election was five years ago. It’s time to move on.”
Sen. McCain denied that his support of the Syrian rebels had anything to do with a personal vendetta against President Obama, but according to the rebel,“Every time he said ‘Obama,’ a vein in his head kind of bulged out.”
“The man is a simmering cauldron of rage,” the Syrian rebel said.“He needs to turn his anger toward Obama into something more positive. You can’t carry all of that hate around with you forever—it’s not healthy.”
For his part, Sen. McCain said that he was “finished” with the Syrian rebels and would now focus on starting a war with North Korea.
And, Andy Borowitz, might have added that the consoling advice to McCain to get over his anger with Obama for losing to him in the election and move on was coming from the al qaida rebel forces mixed in with other Syrian citizens fighting against Assad's brutal dictatorship.

<quoted text> 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!
in 2000, Clinton claimed a $230B surplus, but Clinton borrowed
$152.3B from Social Security
$30.9B from Civil Service Retirement Fund
$18.5B from Federal Supplementary Medical insurance Trust Fund
$15.0B from Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund
$9.0B from the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund
$8.2B from Military Retirement Fund
$3.8B from Transportation Trust Funds
$1.8B from Employee Life Insurance & Retirement fund
$7.0B from others

Total borrowed from off budget funds $246.5B, meaning that his $230B surplus was actually a $16.5B deficit.
($246.5B borrowed -$230B claimed surplus =$16.5B actual deficit).

Obama To Nominate 3 For D.C. Circuit Court Of Appeals, Setting Up Filibuster Fight
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama plans to nominate three judges to a critical federal court in a move that The New York Times says "will effectively be daring Republicans to find specific ground to filibuster all the nominees."
The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit is considered nearly as powerful as the Supreme Court and is known as a proving ground for potential high-court nominees. The three vacancies are part of a staffing crisis that has plagued the judiciary, as Obama's nominees have been bottled up in the Senate by GOP obstruction. And while he has had to wait longer than past presidents to have judges approved, he has also nominated them at a slower pace.
A Senate Democratic aide said that Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has been pressing the president to make such a move to raise the pressure on Republicans. "That is what Reid has been pressing for and why we cleared Sri last week," the aide said, referring Sri Srinivasan, who was recently approved for the Court, reducing the gap from four to three. He was approved 97-0 once Republicans dropped procedural objections.

Considering the IRS already abused its power, opinions have become rather important - especially if you're on the "wrong side" and targeted under Obamacare.
But you're on the "right side" - so no need for you to worry.
"Regressives are howling that IRS official Lois Lerner -- who’s on administrative leave after invoking the Fifth Amendment -- is still getting paid. I think the real scandal is she's been put on administrative leave. All citizens are entitled to invoke their Fifth Amendment rights. This isn't the era of Joe McCarthy and his communist witch hunts.

The more I understand what actually occurred at the IRS, the more it appears IRS agents were doing their jobs. A close examination of the conservative groups allegedly targeted by the IRS -- reported in yesterday's New York Times -- revealed a wide set of election activities that tax experts and former I.R.S. officials say provided a legitimate basis for flagging them for closer review. That's because I.R.S. agents are legally obligated to determine whether a 501(c)(4) group is primarily promoting ‘social welfare,’-- and these groups were disproportionately claiming to be doing so while showing every appearance of spending most of their funds and energies on partisan campaign activities -- thereby justifying further review. Why, then, has the Obama administration made scapegoats of IRS officials who were clearly doing their jobs?" www.robertreich.org
