What's funny is that Congress led by Schafetz, Jordan, and Gowdy retrieved an email with Lerner denigrating the Tea Party with expletives. Of course, you deniers on the left aren't deft enough to connect the dots because you know it's true. That said, hopefully this leads back to the White House and Lerner gets put in jail.

Yet the highest total of police casualties happen to be white. However, I'm sure all of those minorities and whites killed were all innocent right? This notion that the police are out to gun down innocent people is the stupidest thing I've ever heard of. That said, why do most liberals have a problem with law enforcement?

Don't confuse them with the facts, Scirocco. You'd have a better chance getting them to actually pay taxes and stop living off the government than acknowledge the obvious truth.

Primetime Racism on Fox

Hannity’s long history of boosting bigots

Hannity and company’s concern for the “wronged” virtually never extends to black people. Extra! couldn’t find a single segment in which Hannity addressed the growing number of inmates freed from prison, in many cases from death row, because of emerging exculpatory evidence, including DNA analysis—a disproportionate number of whom are men of color. It’s a pattern that puts the lie to Hannity’s concern-trolling over murder victims in Chicago, a talking point raised by the host in six of his last 10 segments about the Martin killing.

hope you're not busy. this could take all day because every day of the week.

Sure Carol just keep putting out those myths. The fact is that the birth rate for unmarried black women has been declining for almost 40 years. The same goes for homicides.Black homicides, like all homicides, are in a steep, 20-year decline. In fact, the rates at which blacks both commit and are victims of homicide have shown sharper declines than those of whites. The 2012 murder rate in Washington, D.C., for example, hit a 50-year low. Violent crime in New York and Los Angeles is also falling to levels we haven't seen in decades.
School vouchers aren't going to help anything dimwit.
The majority of those vouchers would go to families whose children are already in private schools. Poor families even with vouchers wouldn't be able to afford the tuition to private schools or the cost of transporting their children to them.
Can you please do us all a favor and go have an accident this morning?

Libertarians have been anything but silent about police abuses in Ferguson, Missouri

Walter Olson of the Cato Institute – the nation’s leading libertarian think tank – recently wrote a post describing the events in Ferguson as an example of indefensible police militarization, an issue he and others at Cato have focused on for years. As Waldman partially recognizes, Reason – probably the nation’s leading libertarian publication – has posted numerous items about Ferguson on its site, nearly all of them highly critical of the authorities.

Perhaps more importantly, libertarians have for many years criticized the War on Drugs and the militaristic police tactics it has helped foster. Libertarian Radley Balko has written more about this than any other commentator, and last year published the leading book on the subject, which I reviewed here. The War on Drugs, which libertarians have denounced since its inception, is responsible for many of the violent interactions between police and young black males that lead to tragedies like the death of Michael Brown. You can certainly argue that libertarians should focus on these issues even more than they already do. But they have opposed both the War on Drugs and police militarization longer and more consistently than adherents of any other political movement. If they are at fault for not doing more, so too are liberals and conservatives, and to a substantially greater extent.

Unfortunately you are wrong and too ignorant to comprehend the truth because it doesn't fit your narrative. The fact you're not upset about average everyday Americans being targeted by a corrupt IRS speaks volumes of your moral compass. Most of you liberals are all about the end justifying the means or by all means necessary in attempt to silence the opposition. The only problem now is Congress is slowly but surely getting to the truth. While it's obvious targeting took place against the right, it's just a matter of who goes to jail for this blatant disregard of the First Amendment.

If the highest casualties are white it's because most cops are white. If the highest incidences of police killings involve white cops; it's because most cops are white.

It's not up to a cop to decide if someone is innocent and be the judge, jury and executioner.
If that would be the case then there would be no need for a judicial system.

What's wrong with you people?

Just imagine if all the cops were black and they were killing white kids. Then we'll see what you'd say.

'Even though Facebook (FB) reported $1.1 billion in pre-tax profits from U.S. operations in 2012, it will probably pay zero federal and state taxes—and even receive a federal tax refund of about $429 million—according to a Feb. 14 statement from Citizens for Tax Justice.'
