<quoted text>As for the so-called IRS targeting of "conservative" groups,it turns out the IRS wasn't just "targeting" those bastard T-party or conservative groups. That horse $H!T was debunked by by testimony and in tons of documentation showing the IRS not only looked at conservative groups seeking tax exempt status under 501 (c) 4 but groups of various other political ideologies, including progressive groups. That is the IRS's job. Their job is to determine if these groups seeking tax exempt were actually who and what they say they were and that they are COMPLYING WITH THE LAW in seeking tax exempt status. The problem most of these lying GOPher T-bagger groups applying for tax exempt status were actually political groups scamming the IRS and law abiding tax payers by falsely claiming they were primarily social groups when if fact they were really primarily political activists. The law says that a groups purpose is primarily for political purposes they are ineligible for the tax exempt status. The IRS began catching on to this bull shit when hoards of T-party groups began filing fraudulent applications during 2010-11. The Faux blows and other right wing hate mongers then started stirring their shit pot twisting it into the IRS was deliberately "Targeting" conservative groups which wasn't true but a bunch of right wing induced lies. What really needs to happen is Faux blows and other hate monger right wing extremist bloggers and websites ought to be shut down as they aren't credible sources but instead just hate filled, lying big mouths for the right wing and the Kock sucking brothers. Their specialty is outright lying, twisting facts and stirring up low information stupid white trash for political gain. Low information white trash are now famous for eating this faux blows shit up like it was a delicacy.

You're a perfect example one of them aren't you stupid? BTW the "Scandal" is only in your low information P-bagger brain. Its about time you figured it out.
Wow you are stupid! Sometimes it's just better to let stupid be stupid. This one takes the cake!

Don't worry, RH, polesmoker is always asking others to do his homework for him. When someone pays enough attention to the little whiner, actually educating him, he simply deems it "faux noise" or some other regurgitated bigotry and continues on as if nothing happened.

He's a moron.

Remember back when Bush was president and little idiots like pipedream weren't even paying attention to politics. The concerns of level-headed liberals were legit in many cases, and we had intelligent conversations regarding decisions to invade Iraq (a decision supported by liberals until it became politically advantageous for the libs to oppose), to the border, to education .. etc.

Conservatives were just as concerned as liberals regarding the casualties of the war on terror, the failing No Child Left Behind legislation, the scandal that surrounded Halliburton, the discussions over waterboarding, etc... We may have differed in our opinions, but at least conservatives were willing to intelligently debate these issues like adults, even as radical liberal protesters stomped through the streets carrying burning effigies of an American president with a noose around his neck, or posters with bullseyes painted over a president and vice president's image.

Just as I don't blame people for electing Obama in 2004 when given the scary alternative of electing a warhawk like John McCain and ... gulp ... Sarah Palin, I'd think people on the left would understand why we elected Bush to a second term when given the alternative of another toilet bowl circling career politician, John Kerry and John Edwards. There really was no choice unless you wanted to throw your vote away on an inane third party.

BUT, the difference between the Bush era and the Obama era is the total erosion of any educated, intelligent conversation regarding policies that effect America. When the slightest opposition to an administration's entirely partisan actions or legislation is simply brushed off as "racism", and the only news sources the left will accept are those in the bag for Obama, there can be no intelligent exchange of ideas - which is exactly what ill-educated radicals like "pipedream" want because even they know that an honest discussion of this administration's promises and actions would require them to admit in many cases conservatives were right to be critical.

Obama is following the law A.H. It isn't his law and the kids coming across the border are not his doing The law was happily enacted by a bi-partisan congress and supported and signed by that MF'r from TexAZZZhole. You have a problem with it put your pile of b.s. on GWBs doorstep where it belongs.In the meantime, the Obama Administration is trying to speed up the detention and hearing process and get as many of them legally deported as fast as the law and resources allow. Now STFU and crawl back where you came from.
The 2008 Trafficking Victims Protection Act explicitly contains an "exceptional circumstances" clause allowing a president to suspend the requirement that unaccompanied minors must be turned over to HHS.

[Even where the 2008 trafficking act is applicable, provisions within the law allow its application to be limited in "exceptional circumstances", which — as one prominent Democratic senator recently suggested — might include the current border crisis.]

In other words, Obama already has the AUTHORITY to suspend the 2008 Trafficking Act, he just doesn't have the POLITICAL WILL to do it.

Once again we see the political theater tactics of progressivism. We're supposed to believe that a president, who in every other situation, has made no bones about his willingness to make his own rules, rewrite laws, re-rewrite his own laws, do end-rounds around congress and just flat out lie, suddenly is hamstrung by a law passed in 2008? AND, written within the law he's using to blame Bush is a clause that allows him to suspend it in cases such as the current border scandal.

More progressive games at the cost of money and humanity all to manufacture an election-time crisis that popular misconception says is Bush's fault in order to take the focus off all the scandals surrounding this administration while they're approval ratings are spiraling into the abyss.

Of course, ill-educated tools like pipedream are submissively serving as screech monkeys chanting, "Don't blame Obama - it's Bush's fault!", ad nauseum.

Anyone could give you black and white evidence and you would dismiss it as right wing junk even if it was written by Harry Reid and published in the Huffington compost.

You are an uneducated twit who does not have the sense to pound sand down a rat hole. You are continually issued intellectual beat-downs and don't have the smarts to keep your mouth shut. You should learn from your beatings but you don't and that proves your diminished mental capacity. Cut your losses and leave because you are totally out classed by Oneal, Batch, Raise, Ron and others and you have NO hope of salvaging any of your miserable reputation.

Not sure what you are saying so please spell it out.

What it says to me is the Chinese are investing in real estate in the city of Detroit. It tells me they are smart investor buying low, fixing up and raising the property values so that the City of Detroit will be able to collect more property taxes. There is a reason that most great cities have a Chinatown neighborhood....I presume you know what I'm really saying..

The Chinese aren't trying to be benevolent towards black people by their actions in Detroit. They are strategic in this endeavor of theirs.

~~~~

Dozens of companies from China are putting down roots in Detroit, part of the country’s steady push into the American auto industry.

Chinese-owned companies are investing in American businesses and new vehicle technology, selling everything from seat belts to shock absorbers in retail stores, and hiring experienced engineers and designers in an effort to soak up the talent and expertise of domestic automakers and their suppliers.

While starting with batteries and auto parts, the spread of Chinese business is expected to result eventually in the sale of Chinese cars in the United States.

Anyone with any sense knows that the Chinese will hire their own people to work in their businesses hence the reason why it's a dire future for black people in Detroit.
