The fact that Fascists like Obama would deny folks their Constitutional rights based on their political beliefs is exactly why gun confiscation legislation failed. The IRS scandal is proof.
What IRS scandal?
And what does political affiliation have to do with keeping guns out of the hands of mentally impaired, e.g. DBwriter?

Traditional supermarkets may continue to exist in some form for their meat, bakery, and deli departments, but cannot compete on other groceries unless they get their costs under control.
Walmart is not their only problem. Costco is also eating their lunch.
Smart consumers go to the supermarkets for the loss leaders, but little else.
Costco is 'eating [Walmart's] lunch' even while Costco continues paying their employees higher livable wages and benefits. How can that be?!?:-D

pure BS.
so which of the right wing entities that were 'targeted' got their tax exempt status revoked?
none.

solved. or rather, nothing to solve.
Try to read a report or document. This is the IRS IG report titled
"Inappropriate criteria was used to Identify Tax-exempt Applications for Review"
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/156617899/IRS-IG-... #

Apparently the behavior of the IRS was so egregious as to cause an IG report.

There were deliberate delays -years- in processing applications of targeted groups as well as inappropriate demand for information.

You creating a bogus straw man to knock down isn't very bright.

No, not too harsh. Rightwingers post so much bullsh!t on a daily basis sometimes it's hard to sift through it all. Mostly you just come out feeling dirty.

Also if Galt is correct and assuming Carol was a teacher for all those years then she has more money than she knows what to do with.

Although she rents, has taken up another job and sounds like she is living paycheck to paycheck and hoping to God her husband's health holds out a bit longer while her diabetes goes more or less untreated.

She sounds like a perfect Democrat.:)

What has changed?
By the way, in most states it is highly illegal, subject to criminal penalties, for someone to call themselves an "engineer" unless they are registered by the state as a Professional Engineer, which almost always requires an appropriate college degree.
Way to "change" the subject stupid__and again you're wrong. There are various sorts of engineers, train drivers for instance.

My tea party neighbor retired from the state of WI where he worked as an engineer in the highway department-DOT or whatever they call it.

McVeigh execution: A 'completion of justice'

TERRE HAUTE, Indiana -- Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh died without saying a word Monday at the Federal Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana, minutes after a deadly stream of drugs was administered through a needle in his right leg.

No really, thatís a serious question. For throughout the whole OKC bombing saga the mainstream media has ignored some serious inconsistencies.

'Progressive liberalism' gave you the New Math and computer science along with traditional education subjects--the new tools the younger generation needs to move ahead in the 21st century. Would you rather see students returning to the little red one-room school house on the edge of the woods with no indoor plumbing , no up-to-date school books or modern lab equipment for the students to share in advancing a greater knowledge and experience?

Public Policy Polling, deemed the most accurate polling firm for the 2012 elections, finds that only 41 percent of Americans trust Fox News while 46 percent do not -- down from a 49-37 percent ranking in 2010. The news comes one week after the network hit a 12-year low in the coveted 25-54 demographic for primetime.

Once again, teachers are held accountable for everything under the sun while liberal supervisors keep their seats warm until retirement and are more concerned about making someone mad than caring one iota about the students.

And the students know it more than anyone. That's the plain and simple - and sad - truth.

But this is starting to seem like work...so later.

For eight hours a day five days a week, they are under your charge.

Safe environments would be nice but student violence has become an epidemic because liberals want to "leave them alone".

Consequences can be as simple as a student having to write a two-page essay on their bad behavior or losing out on recess or a fun activity.

Caring and discipline go hand in hand. Maybe that's something you know nothing about. If that's the case, then I feel sorry for you.

No, I take that back. It's been that way when my older sister started teaching 10 years before I did.
When she first sent a high school student to the office for throwing spitwads in her classroom and the student returned with a note telling her to deal with it herself, she knew she had made the wrong career choice - just like me.
You just have to cope as best you can.
Progressive liberalism in public schools goes way back. Now students can curse out their teachers with absolutely no repercussions and violence among students in the public schools has become an epidemic.
Welcome to your world, Homer.
You and your sister are incompetent if you couldn't deal with spitwads.
And no student can curse out a teacher.

No wonder you're a liberal. I must have posted three separate times "all those years" was a grand total of 11.

Pay attention, Homer. You might just become a conservative.
