Barack Obama, our next President

Liberals are always trying to cheat the system.
Post the first paragraph of that article.
Everyone agrees that the IRS shouldn’t have targeted groups with “Tea Party” or “Patriot” in their names for special scrutiny in awarding tax-exempt status. NBC News reports two agents have been disciplined for doing so, and the Justice Department announced a criminal probe. But so far no one has identified a single conservative group that was denied status in the controversial review, though some faced bureaucratic hurdles and had their tax-exempt status delayed.

In fact, the only known 501(c)(4) applicant to have its status denied happens to be a progressive group: the Maine chapter of Emerge America, which trains Democratic women to run for office. Although the group did no electoral work, and didn’t participate in independent expenditure campaign activity either, its partisan status apparently disqualified it from being categorized as working for the “common good.”

This article not only proves Fox is, in fact, fair and balanced but clarifies your argument.
WASHINGTON – Leaders of progressive groups say they, too, faced long delays in getting the Internal Revenue Service to approve their applications tax-exempt status but were not subjected to the same level of scrutiny that tea party groups complained about.
The revelation that such a wide array of groups may have received extra scrutiny is threatening to undercut the narrative of some Republican lawmakers that the IRS targeted enemies of the president during last year's presidential election.
Karen Kraushaar, a spokeswoman for the inspector general, however, said the term "tea party" included instructions to forward such cases to other agents for additional review. There were no such instructions accompanying the term "Progressive," she said.

Your sources always forget the balanced part and, therefore, the fair part too.
lol! No son.

It simply proves they're too lazy to do the work and took it from AP instead. There's nothing wrong with that...

... but it doesn't prove their 'fair and balanced' at all.

Education... yes. We need to get the so-called "progressives" destroying our education system out.
Jobs and economy... Texas is doing great. Maybe you idiots should come down here and see how we're doing it.
If you know someone who wants a job, send them to Texas.
If you know a company that is being strangeled in a Democrat-communist-red state, send them to Texas.
no one's going to move to Texas for a minimum wage job.

Why does simple logic seem to elude liberals?
We simply cannot afford the costly and expansive undertaking of finding other sources of alternative energy that can keep this nation running as cost-efficiently as our own natural resources when we're already in dire economic straits. Oil, gas and coal are abundant and readily available.
It's like really, really, really wanting a brand new Hummer but having to drive an old but reliable car you already own because you simply can't afford a costly car payment.
Liberals remind of teenagers. Always wanting what they can't have and not having enough wisdom or maturity to understand why they can't have it...because they're not the ones paying for it.
So based on your 'logical' argument, when was CRA repealed son?

Where I live, there is an equal blend of whites, blacks and Hispanics who mind their own business and take pride in what they have. Wouldn't want it any other way.
Ironically, the Southern states have now become representative of the hard-working middle class with the influx of northerners and the era of Southern Democrats long since past.
Many blacks are moving back to these states from Detroit, Chicago and New York where they once fled and were denied even low-skilled industrial jobs that created the vicious cycle of poverty in these urban areas. They are finding both opportunities and acceptance in the south which southern democrats had once denied them.
I'm sure there are still places in the south - just like in the north - where discrimination and prejudice has not been completely stamped out. But discrimination and prejudice exists in some places everywhere and is not just limited to skin color.
There are plenty of other places in the south - and in the north - to live and especially in the 21st century.
You'll never convince liberals though that the majority of Americans have moved on past the racial issue. They cling to it for dear life. Why, I don't know. Well, yes I do.
The FBI reported that for 2006, hate crimes against gays increased to 16% from 14% in 2005, as percentage of total documented hate crimes across the U.S.[3] "The 2006 annual report, released on November 19, 2007, also said that hate crimes based on sexual orientation are the third most common type, behind race and religion.[3]" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_viole...

Couldn't win with Dems causing that pesky fillbuster-eh?
let's finish this.

MLK: Another indication that progress is being made was found in the recent presidential election in the United States. The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.

Weep all you want for the "little lost souls" the bottom line is humans are our most renewable resource. When you can demonstrate that abortions result in an unrecoverable loss to individuals or humankind then you'll have an argument.

SANFORD, Fla. June 27, 2013
A teenage friend of Trayvon Martin was forced to admit today in the George Zimmerman murder trial that she did not write a letter that was sent to Martin's mother describing what she allegedly heard on a phone call with Martin moments before he was shot.
In a painfully embarassing moment, Rachel Jeantel was asked to read the letter out loud in court.
"Are you able to read that at all?" defense attorney Don West asked.
Jeantel, head bowed, eyes averted whispered into the court microphone, "Some but not all. I don't read cursive."
It sent a hush through the packed courtroom.
Jeantel, 19, was unable to read any of the letter save for her name.
That is truly saddening.

Maybe you're the one who's out of the loop. Political immaturity often prevents gaining a well-rounded perspective. Monkey see, monkey do is common among those so easily influenced by what is perceived as popular and cool.
You, too, will one day grow out of that phase and be able to think for yourself.
So with your great perspective, when was CRA repealed son?

You keep telling yourself that and repeating it like a good little parrot.
I have no opinion about Deen other than she was raised in the south and can't help her heritage or her party affiliation or the southern democrat mindset decades ago.
But when someone voluntarily admits to wrongdoing 30 years ago and even if they say things that raises eyebrows because of who they are and where they came but then apologizes for it, their life should not be ruined.
Why was Robert Byrd forgiven when he was in the KKK and did a heck of a lot more to black people than racial slurs and not Paula Deen?
You keep repeating CRA son.

So when was it repealed?

no, i don't think i'll be joining the 2.6% of the republicans who voted for Mitt any time soon.

carol....3 million viewers....58,167,260 Republicans voted for Romney....so as much as you'd like it to be otherwise, very little influence from the GOP PR network beyond those who need right wing talking heads to do their thinking for them.
