<quoted text>I'm curious why Bettie Lou dropped her harangue on the I.R.S. after Elijah Cummings blew the lid off the I.R.S. "scandal " by releasing the full transcripts that exonerated President Barack Obama from any involvement? "Republicans could never quite get their trail of bread crumbs to reach anywhere near the White House. The buzzards were circling earlier this month when Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) released the best quotes he could cherry-pick from closed testimony, and still came up short. It was Rep. Elijah Cummings who finished it off, though, when he fulfilled Issa’s promise to release the full transcripts, which revealed that the supervisor responsible for scrutinizing Tea Party groups was a conservative Republican who ruled out White House involvement in the policy." ... "McConnell effectively acknowledged to disappointed conservatives that recently revealed IRS malfeasance probably wasn’t the consequence of any direct action taken by the White House."

We shouldn't expect any well-deserved apologies coming from the republicans for the false accusations about President Barack Obama any time soon.
Cumming's released a Progressive squirrel.

MSM didn't even bite.

HEY STUPID! How do you know that abortions have sky rocked since Reo v Wade? They weren't reported prior to that ruling since they were illegal or were simply called something else in medical records like a dilation and curettage. How many women died or had their health and reproductive systems destroyed by back alley abortionists? If you and your ignorant ilk have their way there'll be more Kermit Gosnells and many more women will die.
Well, because "stupid", Planned Parenthood became an abortion institution AFTER Roe v Wade and abortions in hospitals and clinics were illegal except New York BEFORE Roe v Wade.

But I know logic isn't liberals' strongpoint.

You were claiming that the Civil Rights law covered more than race. Not true.

I support the SCOTUS decision and all you are doing is being emotional and pointing to laws that don't apply.

<quoted text>Sorry Goof, but there wasn't any NSA 'cameras ' to find(they were not even permitted to 'read or listen to any private phone conversations or emails' just allow their super computers collate the numbers and e-mail addresses and even that had to be periodically checked and okayed by a Federal Judge--so there wasn't much the NSA can do on its own. The NSA secrecy revelations "scandal" is becoming like the I.R.S. "scandal"-much ado about nothing. It is also beginning to look like that Edward Snowden was just a puppet stooge for more powerful outside forces trying to break into the American national security organization. Let's start asking ,like Sam Spade, who seeks to benefit the most by Snowden's secrecy revelations?--Glenn Greenwald and The Guardian get Emmys, Russia, China, Iran, etc.(all revengeful and embarrassed states because of the U S 'nuke centrifuges' Intelligence coup)*Hint
You don't think that the NSA has access to every security camera in the country, public or private, that transmits from one location to another?

When it's the Voting Rights Act and the Affordable Care Act on the line, Scalia doesn't hesitate to take an axe to "democratically adopted legislation," approved by the elected representatives of Americans who are able to "govern themselves." But when it's the Defense of Marriage Act, Scalia suddenly remembers his affinity for restraint?

Exactly one year ago yesterday, following some of Scalia's partisan antics, a constitutional law professor at UCLA said the conservative jurist "has finally jumped the shark." At the time, that seemed like a reasonable assessment, and yet, Scalia somehow manages to get worse.

Still nothing to back-up your claim?
I am more than willing to keep you posting that Lieberman was a Republican.
You are wrong; look it up.
Your buddy Dumbwaiter calls Boehner and other conservative Repugnants of being Democrats, seems you take no issue to that.

Double standard at work here??

Lieberman once was a Democrat. He became an Independent after losing the Democratic Primary. He became more of a Repugnant after that, even being McCain's top pick for VP.

So, if calling Boehner a Democrat is ok with you, you shouldn't have a problem with anyone calling Lieberman a Repugnant, which is what he became.

You have the consistency of Jello.
