What a IRS Scandal? haha
IRS inspector general Russell George was a Democrat
Treasury inspector general J. Russell George, whose audit served as the foundation of the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting controversy, suggested during a congressional hearing on Thursday that he identified as a Democrat before becoming a Republican.
The IRS watchdog, a former staffer for Sen. Bob Dole who was appointed to his current position by President George W. Bush, told the House Oversight committee that he was a page for the 1980 Democratic National Convention and that he was a founder of the Howard University College Democrats during his time at the school.“I saw the light and joined Bob Dole’s staff during college,” George said.
David Hayes, one of George’s classmates at Howard University who now clerks for a federal judge in Buffalo, confirmed in an interview with the Washington Post that George helped found the Democratic club.
The inspector general’s comments on Thursday came in response to suggestions that his audit may have been less than impartial. Democrats in recent weeks have questioned the credibility of his report, saying it focused too heavily on the IRS’s treatment of conservative groups while ignoring details about how the agency dealt with progressive organizations.
George defended his audit on Thursday, saying there was no political consideration during the process.“I think anyone who has worked with me on either side of the political spectrum will agree that I call it as I see it,” he told the committee.
House Democrats have released a list of the agency’s screening criteria and slides from a 2010 IRS “Screening Workshop,” both of which instructed agents to be on the lookout for “progressive” groups.
On Thursday, George testified that the IRS did not provide his office with those documents before he issued his report in May.“I am disturbed that these documents were not provided to our auditors at the outset, and we are currently reviewing this issue,” he said.
George’s audit found that the IRS had inappropriately targeted groups for additional scrutiny by focusing on political ideology instead of using politically neutral criteria.
Days before the inspector general’s findings were issued publicly, IRS official Lois Lerner acknowledged the agency’s mistakes and apologized for them.
“They used names like ‘tea party’ or ‘patriots,’ and they selected cases simply because the applications had those names in the title,” Lerner said during an American Bar Association conference.“That was wrong, that was absolutely incorrect, insensitive and inappropriate.”
Lerner’s comments fueled notions that the IRS’s actions applied only to conservative groups.
Republicans seized on that narrative as it quickly gained traction, suggesting that the agency had systematically hindered President Obama’s opponents during the 2010 and 2012 election cycles, possibly at the behest of high-ranking administration officials.
There is no evidence to date that the White House influenced the IRS’s actions. IRS employees who testified Thursday said they knew of no indication that the efforts were politically motivated.

Sean Hannity Asks If Obama Is Like Trayvon Martin Because 'He Smoked Pot' And 'Did A Little Blow'(AUDIO)
Sean Hannity reacted to President Obama comparing himself to Trayvon Martin in typical fashion on Friday.
"Now the president's saying Trayvon could've been me 35 years ago," Hannity said on his radio show. "This is a particularly helpful comment. Is that the president admitting that I guess because what, he was part of the Choom Gang and he smoked pot and he did a little blow — I'm not sure how to interpret because we know that Trayvon had been smoking pot that night."
Obama made an unexpected appearance at Friday's White House press briefing, where he spoke about the George Zimmerman verdict and how the country continues to struggle with racial bias.
"When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is, Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago," Obama said.
Some conservatives slammed Obama over the speech, accusing him of putting on a show for political gain and trying to worsen racial tensions.
"President Obama is now our Race-Baiter in Chief," Fox News contributor Todd Starnes wrote on Facebook. "His remarks today on the Trayvon Martin tragedy are beyond reprehensible."
There were other conservatives, as Daily Intelligencer pointed out, who reacted differently. Fox News' Chris Wallace, for example, said he didn't "see how you can read this as in any way stoking racial tensions."
What an idiot rush/beck wannabe. He probably smoked and snorted with the rest of them himself in his college days. You certainly can see where the circus socks get their lingo and slogans. Faux box pundits haha
Countrygirl, check out the wonderful 52 pics of our PRESIDENT and his family. I bet the repukes think they chopped all those early years pictures of him in those photos. Dumbass lemming tools.

Bill Maher On Racism: "Open Your Eyes White America, It Is So Not Over"
BILL MAHER: I think what he was trying to teach -- a teachable moment for the American public -- was that the frustration in the black community here is not just about the verdict, it's about this culture of suspicion that follows black people around. He said:
"There are very few African American men in this country who haven't had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store. That includes me. There are very few African American men who haven't had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. And don't get me started about reality shows."
I made that last one up. So I think he's just asking -- and we have two conservatives -- conservatives, especially, to say,'we admit there is a problem.' Can we get that?
FMR. REP. CONNIE MACK (R-FL): I thought the president today -- I know there is going to be a lot of debate about should he have or shouldn't he have, but in my opinion, he's the first black president of the United States of America.
MAHER: We always make news on this show.
MACK: I think it would've of been strange if he hadn't. I think it would've been -- I think people would have asked more questions of why hasn't he made the statement. So, I'm not going to be one of those that says he shouldn't have made the statements today, that he shouldn't have gone to -- make the press conference.
MAHER: But lots of conservatives said it was race-baiting and it seems to be their position that unless you are marching down the street with a white hood on and burning a cross on somebodies lawn, racism is over. And I think what the president is saying is, no, open your eyes white America, it is so not over.
And I just think that they want that recognition. I mean, I've said this before: I would be a very bad black person because I would not have taken it as well as they have. I really wouldn't. I'd be a lot more pissed off. I mean, I'm really amazed that the parents, Trayvon Martin's parents. Wow.(HBO's Real Time, July 19, 2013)
Here you go Calvin. Like I have said, you get more truth from late night comedy than fauxbox pundits put out. Bravo to the former Senator from Florida for his sensible comments. Rare in that party. These comments say what most Americans believe. Let the minority two parties stir it up as race baiting. They are the ones trying to start a race war which won't happen. People are smarter than that and it looks like all those rallies for Trayvon in 100 cities were peaceful. Imagine that prediction by frightwingers not coming true. No violence. Loser lemmings are fauxboxed brainwashed.

Can't 'go wrong' on THIS commonality of childhood ... We're 'showing' our age ...
John (records) Landecker ...
Records Truly Is My Middle Name ...
Happily for all of us, Landecker is alive and well at 65, and still on the radio today — hosting evenings at WLS-FM (94.7), occupying the same air shift and uttering the same call letters he did when he first took Chicago by storm in 1972.
The story begins with his arrival in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where his parents prophetically chose his mother’s maiden name — Records — as his middle name.“They had no way of knowing that their son would become a radio disc jockey, or that this name they had chosen would become my unlikely calling card,” he writes. But if that didn’t foretell his destiny, by the time young John set up a pretend radio station in his bedroom closet, this precocious baby boomer’s future was set...

Agree about Z!
---As for her condemning gay people and laughing at them, that's her problem. The last thing I am is gay, but I have always said, to each his own. I do not interfere in their lifestyle and could not care less what people do as long as they don't step into my turf and try to run my life.---
I don't 'hate' the person!
I "hate" the abomination ...
try to 'teach' the Christian words on it.
It definitely DOES NOT need to be in the forefront of Our Country and it's legislation. BUT there 'is' a certain mindset that goes along with that lifestyle, from some.
Same as any other mindset. You HAVE to be broad-open minded to see the WHOLE make up of the human race, for US all to get along.

CIA and FBI Spied on Americans and Immigrant Refugees as Early as the Late 50s
Since the early days of the Cold War, the FBI and CIA have bent the law to spy on American citizens, starting with Eastern European refugees who had sought sanctuary in this country, writes Richard Rashke.
The National Security Agency (NSA) isn’t the only intelligence group that has collected data on Americans and hidden the truth from the public. The FBI and CIA engaged in the same strategy following World War II. In each instance, the government bent the law or secretly enacted dubious legislation to make the snooping appear legal.

McCain calls for review of 'stand your ground' laws
(CNN)- Sen. John McCain, who lost in 2008 to the first African-American elected to the White House, said President Barack Obama's speech about race relations was "very impressive" and agreed that "stand your ground" laws should be re-examined, including those in his own state of Arizona.
"The 'stand your ground' law may be something that may needs to be reviewed by the Florida legislature or any other legislature that has passed such legislation," McCain said on CNN's "State of the Union."
Arizona is one of 30 states that have such laws, which give individuals certain legal rights in cases of self-defense. The law in Florida has come under scrutiny recently during the trial of George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed teenager Trayvon Martin last year during a confrontation.
Asked if he thinks Arizona should review the law, McCain said: "Yes, I do."
"And I'm confident that the members of the Arizona legislature will, because it is very controversial legislation," he told CNN chief political correspondent Candy Crowley.
McCain said he didn't agree with fellow Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who argued Friday the Obama administration is calling for a review of "stand your ground" laws as a way to further its agenda against Second Amendment rights.
"Isn't it time for America to come together?"
McCain asked. "I'd rather have a message of coming together and discussing these issues rather than condemning.
"I respect (Cruz's) view, but I don't frankly see the connection," he added.
Protesters stand up to 'stand your ground,' but laws likely here to stay
McCain said that while American society has made progress on racial issues, the recent tensions over the Trayvon Martin case have "highlighted the differences that remain."
"What I got out of the president's statement, which I thought was very impressive, is that we need to have more conversation in America," he said. "I need to talk to more of my Hispanic organizations in my state. I need to talk to more African-American organizations."
The longtime senator pointed to the economic disparities between African-Americans and other demographic groups, citing the city of Detroit, which he called a "wasteland," as an example.
"What's the majority of the population in the city of Detroit? Who suffers the most? Obviously we know the answer," he said of the city that filed for bankruptcy last week.
The main point that can be drawn from the president's speech on Friday, McCain said, was that "we've still got a long way to go."
"And I think the president very appropriately highlighted a lot of that...as only the president of the United States can," he said.
Gotta love McCain. If he hadn't tagged that soccer mom without a brain to run with him, he could be President right now. Hell, I might have voted for him myself. He tries to reach out to the other side and make some progress, too bad the teabaggers are killing the Grand OLD Party of No and crisscrossing the country campaigning instead of governing. Love watching them eat their own.
