What is wrong with you? Seriously? You think at a junior high level "but, but, so and so did this" like it makes any of your actions or those of the Obama admin right.
No one thinks that Holder or Obama should get a pass due to a past admin loosing a SCOTUS decision.
I am at this point totally put out with your lack of logic and the general idiocy of this post. I have attempted to be respectful to you up to this point but this one deserves a
"Nuk, you are a moron!"
You're the most emotionally unbalanced woman on this thread. Moreso than Carol even. LOL

You seem to think it's fine to spend days with Carol whining about Sandy Berger taking things from the National Archives, a misdemeanor, and smearing Clinton 13 years after he left office.

But when it's brought up that Bush was slapped down by the Supreme Court repeatedly, you start the crying and wailing.

You're just angry because I brought up the criminality of the Bush Admin., which you desperately try to forget.

While you nitwits flail wildly about over imagined scandals, you have a hissy fit when the many scandals of Bush are brought into the onversation.

I'd think it's that time of the month for you, but you're way tooo old for that, it's all dried up.

You need to get your emotions under control. You act like an idiot with your phony sense of outrage. That death in the family seems to have made you more unbalanced.

Take a few Zanax and it might help you with your panic attacks.

The Latest Lie: IRS Targeted Conservatives

You are hearing that conservative groups were “targeted.” What you are not hearing is that progressive groups were also “targeted.” So were groups that are not progressive or conservative.

All that happened here is that groups applying to the IRS for special tax status were checked to see if they were engaged in political activity. They were checked, not targeted. Only one-third of the groups checked were conservative groups.

Once again: Only one-third of the groups checked were conservative groups.

Conservative groups were not “singled out,” were not “targeted” and in the end none were denied special tax status – even though many obviously should have been.

From last week’s House hearings on this:

Rep. Peter Roskam, R-IL:“How come only conservative groups got snagged?”

Outgoing acting IRS commissioner Steve Miller:“They didn’t sir. Organizations of all walks and all persuasions were pulled in. That’s shown by the fact that only 70 of the 300 organizations were tea party organizations, of the ones that were looked at by TIGTA [Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration].”

Bet you didn’t see that blasted all over your TV news that night.

They did it by buying up so much of the supply themselves. If the government wasn't hoarding ammo then gun owners wouldn't have to get all they can and stock up while they can get it.
It works just like bottled water. When you see that it is being bought up in large numbers you realize that you may someday need it and so anyone with any common sense would then start buying and stocking all they can get while they have the chance. And buy it at the cheaper price then you know it's about to become!!!
Nothing wrong with being prepared!
Wake up. The government doesn't buy 22,.357, 30.06, 30.30, 9mm, etc. NRA is only interested in helping wealthy donors, gun/ammo manufacturers, get wealthier. That crap about the government buying up ammo is a smoke screen. A friend of mine is the police chief in a town in Tennessee with 50 officers and he told me that they haven't been able to target practice for months. The NRA created hysteria is putting public safety at risk as well as personal safety for those that can't find ammo, not to mention hunters next fall.

I have to admit, I don't understand this "judge". His ruling that attorneys will not be allowed to mention Trayvon Martin’s drug use, suspension from school and past fighting during opening statements at the trial seems one sided. It is my hope that Zimmerman's attorney's will be able to show the "relevance" of Trayvon's past during the trial which will allow them to disclose his past. If not, I believe that should Zimmerman be found guilty, the justification for the verdict will be forever questioned or we will see an appeal based on the judge's ruling.
Of course, I disagree with your racist comment about the black jurors. They are just as capable of setting their predjudices aside as are whites. Using your logic, if the majority on the jury is white then Zimmerman is a free man. That's a sad commentary on where you believe America stands today.
I do believe it is quite common that the prosecution can not bring up a suspect's past criminal activities at a trial, only at the sentencing phase. The charges have to stand on their own.

I don't see why it would be any different for Martin, especially since he is not on trial. it more akin to the situation of a rape victim
the sex life of a rape victim during the trial of accused can not be brought into play.

what I don't understand all the hoopla about the judge's decision, its a normal aspect of our judicial system

so I take it you think the sex lives of rape victims is relevant and fair game at trial
Personally, I think that is different. "Rape" is a violent act perpetrated by one person against another. Clearly, the person raped is a victim.

That is not the case in Trayvon/Martin. Unless ALL the facts are presented, how can a jury make a truly informed decision? IMO, both Zimmerman and Martin were at fault. It was a terrible tragedy. I don't know if Zimmerman is guilty or innocent but certainly believe Martin's tendency toward violene is a relevant factor. The fact that he was in a fight just hours before being killed is relevant. I don't care if Zimmerman is found guilty or innocent. What worries me is the verdict will not be justified if all the facts haven't been presented to the jury.

The Judge most likely disallowed the defendant's lawyers's request to delve into Tryvon Martin's "past' because it was improper foundation. Trayvon Martin is not on trial here for murder in the first degree,George Zimmerman is ; Trayvon is the victim and he wasn't charged with any crime here of fighting, drug abuse, school suspensions, etc.

No one is profiling Veterans. It is merely suggested that they not be granted an across the board exemption from background checks.

Well, I will admit that I am not familiar with the "normal aspects" of our judicial system. If that is so, and the attorney's can bring up Martin's past during closing arguments, I'm OK. I just don't think it should be ignored. Guess the "hoopa" is the result of ignorance of the judicial process. Thanks for your input.

"The United States became the world's largest producer of ethanol fuel in 2005."

Bush took what had been a limited use fuel source and turned it into a fiasco which raised th ecost of corn to the point where there were riots in Mexico, because the cost of American Corn had risen so fast.

Again, Bush took a small scale product and turned it into a huge problem.

You are speculating. We don't know who the "victim" is. Zimmerman has claimed he acted in self-defense which makes him the "victim". No one can say for certain that, should he be alive, Trayvon wouldn't be charged with a crime. All any of us can do is sit back and watch the presentation of evidence. Jumpiing to conclusions based on media reports is not justice.
