Fair and balanced.
Right, e?

I find it ironic that Georgia Congressman John Lewis refutes the court's opinion that things have changed in the last 50 years since the Congressman was being beaten for fighting for his right to vote.
Pelosi is being lame.

All they have to do is update Section 4-which uses data that is over 40 years old. The rest of the VRA stands.

Section 4 list specific counties or states to be monitored.

I am surprised the Progressives are being so misled on this -then again maybe not.

Galt believes that most Marine wives would play at Camp Pendleton rather than driving 40 miles to Temecula.

Temecula cooler than other Inland Empire locations due to gap in mountains allowing ocean breezes that facilitate vineyards.

Not a member price, which is zero.

I seriously doubt that Congressman Lewis is saying things are exactly the same. But to think the problem has been solved is ridiculous.

For proof, lets watch those areas that had to prequalify & see how fast efforts aimed at voter suppression of minorities start.

Bulldozing a place like Barstow would be a far better idea.
Curious why you think decayed urban slums are more valuable than desert communities?

Most likely racial bias.

Although, if you want to turn the Barstow outlets into a solar farm, go ahead.

You've obviously never shopped for solar, kid. Go onto any number of websites and fill out their surveys. Then come back and post the results.
Google is free.

In the SE where many homes are total electric the "yearly" cost for hot water could represent 30% to 40% of the "total" hours used.

Solar hot water is worthwhile for many paying for itself within a matter of a few to several years depending on family size. Additionally, many power providers, Duke Energy, FPLE etc offer handsome rebates-incentives etc for qualified units installed by professionals.

Apparently not or didn't care.
According to Malcom X, MLK sold out the Civil Rights movement prior to their march on Washington DC
lol

i originally had to post what MLK said about Goldwater because some of these folks/Becklings who felt the need to rewrite the history of the conservative movement in the 60s were trying to tell us that MLK was a republican.

though what i can't understand is....why this whole fantasy about conservatives wanting to be the known as those who stood up for the black folks didn't start until a black man was in the WH.

I am sure the fact that 100% of groups with tea party or patriot was flagged indicates nothing to you.
Not really, having set up a 501(c)3 myself I know it can be difficult to establish your credentials and anybody with a political purpose gets or should get extra scrutiny. I also know most teabaggers are retards who probably did intend to engage in electioneering which specifically bars you from 501(c)3 status.

Aside from all that I'm for abolishing the IRS.

The IRS commissioner said today at a Capitol Hill hearing that the IRS's internal review doesn't contradict the inspector general's report that says progressives weren't targeted by the federal agency
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =zVIyj0LGcEUXX&feature=pla yer_embedded#action=share
I’m confused by the responses from Russell George, Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration, to Rep. Levin’s questions about recent developments in the IRS controversy - specifically news that progressive keywords were apparently also flagged as Tea Party ones were.

On the one hand, George has stated that this didn’t come up because he was instructed to look narrowly at the treatment of Tea Party groups. So these other questions were beyond the scope of his review. On the other hand, he’s saying these left-leaning groups and their keywords were not flagged for the sort of heightened scrutiny applied to Tea Party groups. These two answers seems to be in some level of contradiction, no?

Well I certainly knew it wasn't for their large assortment of books.

Q: How do you get rightwingers into a book store?

A: Have a Bill O'Reilly book signing event.

So basically you are there to steal their internet?

'Quieter' It' nice to take a break from Fox News every once in awhile, eh?

For you to sit here & ignore or completely lie about global warming makes you like more of an ass than a stereotypical black girl. It's not even an argument or a debate. It's me tell facts of which I've lived through &, you telling lies spun behind money hungry people who would sacrifice their unborn grandchildren to put away a couple thousand more dollars. You don't fit thatdescription so, that makes you look more of an ass to argue someones point that doesn't serve your interest. Your logic is, all scientist haven't agreed on the subject so, it's not true. My position is, I can feel it with my own flesh. I don't need a scientist to tell me what I feel. That would make me a trueobserver of the topic & you a Republican robot, get it now?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it was the "global warming" so-called "scientists" that were busted for lying about global warming, wasn't it?
