MOSCOW — Russia's foreign minister on Tuesday said that U.S. demands to extradite U.S. spy leaker Edward Snowden were "ungrounded and unacceptable."

Interesting how Obama has ZERO influence and is the laughing stock of the world.

Obama has lost all credibility, as the NY Times has said in writing.

Obama said he was against all this spying when he was lying to get elected. Now he is a spying fascist on steroid.

I'm glad Snowden embarrassed the jive-ass punk obama. Obama's policies are so misguided, this really doesn't matter in the big scheme of things. The man is a wimp.

Then get the f*ck out.

The government never ever spied on Americans before Obama took office.

Nope.

Never happened.

G Edgar Hoover never kept secret files. My God, what if he had the internet & cell phones to tap into.

George W Bush took more liberties with spying with the first Patriot At than Obama has done. Bush didn't even need a warrant.

Anyone who thinks their phone records are really private, that their cell phones sending signals through the air is private is so naive.

You worry that your government is spying but don'y give a rat's ass that these records are instantly available to thousands of phone/internet employees.

"Oh Oh Oh the President violated the Constitution!!! OMG OMG"

Everything was done by the book. Congressional oversight & court approved.

We are creating a database. No individual's records can be looked at without a warrant.

We have already suffered the terrorist attacks of American citizens - Boston bomber, Timothy McVey, etc. Mining this data has stopped terrorist attacks.

What privacy have you given up? Nothing that you have not already surrendered to phone companies & internet companies.

I guess you think its just a coincidence when you search online for tent information & tent ads appear on your internet pages for weeks to come.

But hey, like the birth certificate, college transcripts, Benghazi, IRS, Medical codes, this is another example of how you people try to make something out of a situation that proves to be nothing.

The Mess In Texas

Texas's state legislature snuck through a draconian abortion bill in a late-night emergency session. Why all the subterfuge? Because the people don't agree with the politicians.

Let’s be clear. The Republican-led legislature didn’t ram through this massive bill that will close most of the state’s abortion services in the early hours of Monday morning because the voters suddenly up and demanded it. On the contrary! Under the cover of darkness, the Republicans passed this bill despite the fact that most voters do not want it and especially not during an emergency session. Polling data collected by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research found that 63 percent of Texas voters polled think abortion is restricted plenty enough and want no more restrictions on it. In addition, eight out of ten voters polled think that the special session should not address abortion or any “social issues” at all, but instead should be focused on “education, jobs, and the economy."

....This is how Texas anti-choicers will end safe, legal abortion in Texas: Over the protests and disapproval of its citizens, on a wave of fantasies about violence and magical thinking about medical science, and because a pro-choice legislator lost her father. They’re doing it this way because there’s no other way to get it done. Which should be enough to make them reconsider, but sadly for anti-choicers, decency and common sense disappeared from their toolbox decades ago.

Right-Wing Media Dazed And Confused After Supreme Court's Reaffirmation Of Affirmative Action

Right-wing media appear stunned as Justice Anthony Kennedy refused to join his more radical conservative colleagues on the Supreme Court and strike down affirmative action in higher education, instead reaffirming modern civil rights law that holds race-conscious admissions policies remain necessary for equal opportunity in today's society.

Kennedy's 7-1 majority opinion in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin is essentially the reiteration of his controlling analysis in Parents Involved v. Seattle School District No. 1 (2007), which affirmed the constitutionality and continued necessity of race-conscious programs that seek to prevent the resegregation of public education.

In lockstep with conservative activists who are using the closely split Supreme Court as an opportunity to overturn decades of civil rights law, right-wing media have been repeatedly clamoring for the opposite of what just occurred in Fisher. So far, right-wing media coverage has been muted or is incorrectly pretending Kennedy's opinion breaks significant new ground.

You're welcome.
But see, that's the thing. Between the two of us, I'm the more reasonable.

For example, you seem to have no problem with Obama and Hillary lying about that video to protect their party's chance of winning in 2012.

That's not very reasonable. Unless you have another explanation why they would lie about something like that.

China is still developing a major portion of their country. The plants they are installing are more efficient & less polluting than most of our coal fired generation plants.
Galt would prefer that GE make charitable contributions to the federal government just as Galt does.

I think that's fair.

Are you still trying to peddle that crap Carol? The housing bubble started to deflate in 2006 a year before Democrats took control of Congress with very thin margins. The real cause was the de regulatory policies of the GOP. Phil Gramm inserted a key provision into the 2000 Commodity Futures Modernization Act that exempted over-the-counter derivatives like credit-default swaps from regulation by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. These credit default swaps in addition to the equally unregulated mortgage backed securities created the crash of financial institutions that caused the recession, not anything that the Democrats did.

"Pro-life" has always been a comical moniker for that crowd but "anti-abortion" didn't really fit the bill since just about everyone is anti-abortion. "Anti-choice" fits perfectly, I'll try to remember to use it in the future.

You complain about unbalanced reporting but insist on using the partisan charity site Talking Points? hmmmm

"Whereas screeners were merely alerted that a designation of 501(c)(3) status “may not be appropriate” for applications containing the word ”progressive”– 501(c)(3) groups are prohibited from conducting any political activities – they were told to send those of tea-party groups off ”to Group 7822&#8243; for further scrutiny. "

Progressives never went to the dead end Group 7822 while the agents sent all those with tea party and patriot t0 Group 7822.
BIG difference.

The IG report was accurate when stating the IRS targeted conservative groups.

There was a good reason they were being examined. Although we would like to think these citizens groups are as pure as newly fallen snow, the fact is, some Tea Party non-profits were clearly breaking the law.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/did-th...

When CVFC, a conservative veterans’ group in California, applied for tax-exempt status with the Internal Revenue Service, its biggest expenditure that year was several thousand dollars in radio ads backing a Republican candidate for Congress.

The Wetumpka Tea Party, from Alabama, sponsored training for a get-out-the-vote initiative dedicated to the “defeat of President Barack Obama” while the I.R.S. was weighing its application.

And the head of the Ohio Liberty Coalition, whose application languished with the I.R.S. for more than two years, sent out e-mails to members about Mitt Romney campaign events and organized members to distribute Mr. Romney’s presidential campaign literature.

Representatives of these organizations have cried foul in recent weeks about their treatment by the I.R.S., saying they were among dozens of conservative groups unfairly targeted by the agency, harassed with inappropriate questionnaires and put off for months or years as the agency delayed decisions on their applications.

But a close examination of these groups and others reveals an array of election activities that tax experts and former I.R.S. officials said would provide a legitimate basis for flagging them for closer review.
