Barack Obama, our next President

Exempting military personnel from every comment about civilian slugs employed by the government would be tedious.

However, the military has excess personnel that could easily be trimmed without affecting our security.

Some Republicans, like Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, have spoken out recently in favor of Section 3 as a method of protecting voting rights after Shelby. But Republican support for any amendment is uncertain at best, and some party members have vowed to oppose any fixes to the Voting Rights Act in light of the Justice Department’s filing.

Texas remains a hothouse of voter discrimination, where laws of dubious legality seem to sprout every day. The Justice Department’s brief cited four instances in the last three years alone in which local jurisdictions failed to show that proposed voting changes did not have a discriminatory purpose. That’s not including either the redistricting case or a separate suit filed over Texas’s new voter ID law, which will also be put on hold if the Section 3 request is successful.

Gov. Rick Perry has complained that the Justice Department’s action was an “end run” around the Supreme Court and cast “unfair aspersions” on his state. He should be more concerned with reversing Texas’s long run of discriminatory voting laws.

Fox News Continues To Push The Lie That Only Conservatives Were Targeted By The IRS

If the IRS is "targeting" any group, then we have a huge problem.

Liberal groups may have been targeted by IRS as well
New documents provided to the Treasury Department's inspector general indicate that progressive groups, in addition to conservative groups, may have been targeted by the IRS for additional scrutiny, according to testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee by J. Russell George, the inspector general. The revelation bolsters the case of congressional Democrats who have argued that IRS targeting was not politically motivated, and that the groups targeted were more ideologically diverse than originally believed.
In his prepared testimony, George described documents from July 2010 that included the term "progressive" within a discussion of the types of groups that should be scrutinized by the IRS. Those documents were provided to George's office on July 9, but were not provided prior to the inspector general's original audit that initially jump-started the targeting scandal and the resultant committee hearings.
FOX won't even mention that.

so all we're doing is riling up the FOX zombies by pointing out something they haven't heard on FOX.

they hate that stuff.

George Will Schools Katrina Vanden Heuvel and Steve Rattner on Detroit's Collapse
ABC This Week viewers on Sunday were treated to a classic socio-economic debate between liberals and a lone conservative.
With the issue at hand being Detroit's announced bankruptcy and whether the federal government should bail it out, the liberal view was championed by the Nation's Katrina Vanden Heuvel and MSNBC's Steve Rattner. On the right was George Will who clearly won the scrum despite being tag-teamed :
GEORGE WILL: Can't solve the problems, because their problems are cultural. You have a city, 139 square miles, you can graze cattle in vast portions of it, dangerous herds of feral dogs roam in there. 3 percent of fourth graders reading at the national math standards, 47 percent of Detroit residents are functionally illiterate, 79 percent of Detroit children are born to unmarried mothers. They don't have a fiscal problem, Steve, they have a cultural collapse.
KRISTINA VANDEN HEUVEL, THE NATION: I find that really insulting to the people of Detroit. I think there is a serious discussion about the future of cities in a time of deindustrialization. But in many ways, Detroit has been a victim of market forces, and I think that what Steve said is so critical, that retirees and workers should not bear this. And this story should not be hijacked as one of about greedy, fiscal, public unions.
WILL: But Steve said he...
VANDEN HEUVEL: And fiscally responsibility.
Don't fret, conservatives. Will was up to the tag team:
WILL: But Steve said in his op-ed was the people of Detroit are no more to blame than the victims of Hurricane Sandy, because apart from voting, he said. Well, what did they vote for? For 60 years of incompetence, malcontents, and in some cases criminals.
Indeed.
Sadly, what we were once again witnessing was liberal media members refusing to acknowledge that decades of Democratic politicians and policies are what destroyed this once great city.
As the Media Research Center's Scott Whitlock observed in his fabulous piece Friday, our media just can't bring themselves to admit this.
Fortunately, Will was there Sunday to give This Week viewers the inconvenient truth most of America's press want to ignore.
Bravo, George! Bravo!
Remember O'bama said Detroit was not going to go bankrupt. O'bama lied...again.
Bailing out Detroit to allow the government to continue to fail to serve the residents would be criminal.

Nothing in it for Obama and the DemoKKKrats. They already have all the Detroit votes.

What truth? That Detroit went bankrupt because of excess in government spending and corruption on the part of the democratic leadership? Or that Chicago is a disaster area because of the democratic leadership? Or that we have the same corrupt big spending politicians from Chicago in D.C. right now?
It would seem truth is in the eye of the beholder and not in the brain of the brainwashed.
The primary reason for the failure of Detroit is race...a race war against whites that drove them out of the city.

Why would you object to a plan that would protect your retirement funds from the greedy Wall Street banksters by turning it over to the government for safekeeping?
