It's funny but the left has come to accept conservatives and the tea party wanting less bureaucracy/smaller government as being somehow malicious or threatening - that government can somehow save us all from ourselves.
Bureaucracy was once an undesirable word associated with red tape, confusion and more problems.
Now, it would seem, it's backwards. The left sees bureaucracy going hand-in-hand with big government as a good thing. They must not see the confusion and problems it causes by it's very size - so obese it is handicapped in performing it's usual functions.
So when did bureacracy and big government and surrendering to it become so desirable?
I just don't get it.
You do like the American bureaucracy only when you are getting your public services and goodies that all of us help pay for--how selfish , unpatriotic can you be? You must have flunked Sunday School.

Dumbass Dave will need to eat those words before long.

In fact, the US is already supplying the Al Qaeda rebels.

But nobody told Obama, so he can deny it.

It would be a 'good catch' if the food stamp program started under Obama but alas like the so-called Obamaphone neither program did.

Without the draft there would not have been a Vietnam War, at least not of the same size and duration.
By the way, do you have any statistics whatsoever to support your assertions about who was drafted and who served? Or are you just repeating your prejudices?
Without a draft , we had the Iraq War under Bush43 that dwarfed the magnitude of the Vietnam War.

Taking a jab at coal miners while living in a coal county.

But lying under oath at a Congressional hearing is perjury, the same as in a court.

And refusing to testify if granted immunity is contempt of Congress, with the same penalties as contempt of court.

The only difference is that Congress makes its own rules.

Congress has the authority to hold a person in contempt if the person's conduct or action obstructs the proceedings of Congress or, more usually, an inquiry by a committee of Congress.

Contempt of Congress is defined in statute, 2 U.S.C.A.§ 192, enacted in 1938, which states that any person who is summoned before Congress who "willfully makes default, or who, having appeared, refuses to answer any question pertinent to the question under inquiry" shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a maximum $1,000 fine and 12 month imprisonment.

Boner would not be hearing or reading about that. The Ministry of Propaganda (Democrats/COrrupt Media) have not approved that story.

A lady who called police and reported a break in by someone that previously beat her was told sorry, we don't have any law enforcement people that can help you.

Now that is "Democrats in action" for you! They also want to take away guns. Amazing.

You're joking right?

Libby was indicted by a grand jury and convicted in a court of law by a jury of his, cough, peers.

Patrick implied the current admin was keeping tally of what party affiliation food stamp recipients were. The next poster pointed it out. I agreed and your post is off topic and whiny.

The question was Patrick's assertion that food stamps were being tracked by political affiliation, not when the program started.

Plame never verified the yellow cake story. Wilson said there was no evidence. It matched earlier investigations.
The CIA asked Bush to renove the yellow cae story rom fis State of the Union speech in 2003.
Lets review.
The military tried to verify this story but came back saying it was unlikely.
Wilson was sent by the CIA & said it was not true.
The CIA asked Bush to remove the yellow cake story from his 20003 State of the union.
Conclusions:
The CIA never verified the Yellow Cake story.
So, Mr Dumbwaiter how did Bush know about this story??? According to you, Bush only received vetted intel.
Well Golly Geez, I guess this makes you a liar & a dumbass once again.
RealDave you live in Dumb Ville even the 9/11 committee found Wilson testimony on Yellow Cake (Not Creditable) another words he Lied!!

Realtime is a Democrat. He cannot make the association that they are in fact the exact same crime.

You can't reason with an idiot. Realtime won't get it.
