Barack Obama, our next President

That was a desperate spin on the liberals' part. And you bought it. Were any progressive organizations denied tax exemption?
Did the IRS send the FBI to progressives asking them what they said in their prayers, what books they read or the names and addresses of all the members in their organization and leaked them to a hard rightwing conservative website which they published?
If you don't recognize this as KBG tactics and a gross infringement on civil liberties and that this would have never been tolerated before this administration, you're helplessly lost.
It's not spin nitwit it's actual facts. Yes Carol three progr4essive groups Emerge Maine, Emerge Massachusetts and Emerge Nevada were denied 501(c)(4) status. How many "conservative groups were denied? NONE!
The IRS didn't send FBI agents out to question anybody all groups got the same questions.
But thank you for reminding us that not only are you abysmally stupid but a damned liar as well.

That's very debatable..... but under no circumstances should the NSA be given a pass.

End the entitlement of presidents and governors to give pardons. Prosecute appointed officials for doing the dirty work of politicians.

While you're at it, make judges accountable to the people when they overstep their authority and allow the public to bring up charges against Congressmen if they inaccurately report on government spending and the activities of government organizations that operate secretly under the umbrella of security.

Obviously, there needs to be a buffer against impulsive public opinion, but make sure that there is a working process for correcting government abuses.

As far as private lives are concerned, an elected official simply is not entitled to a single thing that the most common citizen isn't. If they feel that they need privacy, then why on Earth doesn't any American also have that right? Is it simply understood that some people aren't presidential material?

Don't get all pious with everyone. You can talk the way you do because you're hiding behind a web site. When the cameras are pointing at you, then you can defend who you want to defend and take your chances for doing so.

Someone is destroying the next generations
with a new school system.
Special education is a choice. Why would
anyone want their child to be outcast?
It is just another way of brainwashing
children.
Now there are teachers that are monolingual.
Catholic schools teach all of the children
the same. They are all equal. If they need
help they get tutoring. Learning is not that
hard. All children learn. No one is disabled.

Kermit Gosnell's abortion clinic had the same licensing as Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. How can you be sure they are any better?

That was dumb.

The IG report showed 100% of groups with tea party or patriot was flagged. Still waiting.

Whine as much as you want less than 30% of those with progressive in name was flagged and except for a few most was approved.

America Under Attack

Amnesty Bill’s $3,000 Penalty for Hiring Americans


If it isn’t clear yet that the federal government is hostile to the American population, the fingers poked in our eye by the Schumer/Rubio amnesty outrage should get the point across. Combined with ObamaCare, it actually fines employers $3,000 for hiring Americans rather than foreigners who snuck into the country illegally. Read it and rage:


As I’ve outlined previously, under Obamacare, businesses with over 50 workers that employ American citizens without offering them qualifying health insurance could be subject to fines of up to $3,000 per worker. But because newly legalized immigrants wouldn’t be eligible for subsidies on the Obamacare exchanges until after they become citizens – at least 13 years under the Senate bill – businesses could avoid such fines by hiring the new immigrants instead.…

In a free market, if a new immigrant worker can do a job better than an American worker for a cheaper price, there shouldn’t be a problem with a business hiring the immigrant. But when the immigration bill interacts with Obamacare’s employer mandate, it functions as a reverse tariff against hiring American citizens. It would be like subjecting Americans to a $3,000 tax on purchasing American cars, while allowing them to avoid that tax by purchasing cars from Germany, Japan, or any other country other than America. That’s not free trade. That’s government rigging the game against American citizens.

THERE ARE NO CUTS IN MEDICARE TO DOCTORS IN OBAMACARE.
My God you people are dumber than sh*t.
The cuts in payments stem from a law passed in 1997 that adjusted payments based "by comparing the percentage increase in Medicare payments to doctors to the percentage increase in the GDP."
In the past, this was overridden in Congress by the "doc fix".
This "doc fix" was originally in the ACA but Republicans ran in circles screaming how expensive it was.
Republicans controlled Congress when this law was passed & had plenty of opportunities to fix it.
Comparing the payments to the GDP during the Bush recession & its effects cut those payments.
But hey, let it up to right whiners to blame Obama for not fixing a problem they created in both writing the law & creating the recession.
Dave, doctors are dropping Medicare patients. Your whine does not explain why this happening.

Try something that doesn't have "but Bush" in the reason.

WASHINGTON, June 28 (Reuters)- The father of former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden said in an interview he is reasonably confident his son will return to the United States as long as certain conditions are met.

Those conditions could include not detaining Snowden before trial, NBC News said on Friday. The NBC report added that he plans to make that point in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to be sent through his lawyer later on Friday.

Snowden's father, in part of the NBC interview that aired on the "Today Show," also said he is concerned his son was being manipulated by others, including people from WikiLeaks.

Dave, it isn't a case that you don't know the below. You just have a terrible case of thinking just blame on Bush and will keep you from the truth.

The second bunch of money that gets cut from Medicare under Obamacare comes from providers. Hospitals, home health agencies and others will see Medicare payments grow more slowly than they have in the past.

Medicare benefits will not change – in theory. However, providers who get paid less from Medicare in the future may be less inclined to accept Medicare patients, thereby reducing access.
