Bush administration U.S. attorney firings controversy
http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php...

n late 2006, the Bush Justice Department fired (or asked for the resignation of) eight U.S. attorneys all previously appointed by President George W. Bush. Earlier in 2006, a provision included in the reauthorization of the Patriot Act allowed these positions to be filled by the administration without U.S. Senate approval. In early 2007, hearings were held on the matter in both the House and Senate Judiciary committees on the firings. Several of the fired attorneys testified that they had been contacted by members of Congress or executive officials about pending cases shortly before their termination. Such contact by members of Congress is a violation of both House and Senate rules.

Note: H.E. "Bud" Cummins was asked to resign as early as June 2006 and other AUSAs were marked for replacement. See Tim Griffin article.

The firings of the U.S. attorneys was emblematic of a broader scandal involving the Bush administration's politicization of the Department of Justice.

...On April 19, 2007, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales testified before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. According to the Washington Post's Dana Milbank, "Gonzales uttered the phrase 'I don't recall' and its variants ('I have no recollection,''I have no memory') 64 times. Along the way, his answer became so routine that a Marine in the crowd put down his poster protesting the Iraq war and replaced it with a running 'I don't recall' tally.

"Take Gonzales's tally along with that of his former chief of staff, who uttered the phrase 'I don't remember' 122 times before the same committee three weeks ago, and the Justice Department might want to consider handing out Ginkgo biloba in the employee cafeteria."

...Monica Goodling stated in an affidavit to the Senate Judiciary Committee dated March 26, 2007, that she would "decline to answer any and all questions" regarding the issue. Goodling's reasoning was that she did not want to put herself in a legally precarious position due to the fact that the Committee had already drawn conclusions about the issue. Goodling's willingness to invoke her Fifth Amendment rights, protecting her from self-incrimination, further raised suspicion as to how high up the involvement went.
Thankfully,

Bush politicized the Office of Attorney General and the Judicial Branch line never before by demanding applicants for judicial appointments reveal their personal beliefs on religions, abortion rights, and a plethora of other matters previously held to be "off limits"

Then to compound the damage to our country he appointed an extraordinary percentage from that famous, well-respected, highly distinguished,
(sarcasm intended)
law school,
Jerry Falwell .... er.... Liberty University.

Imagine, your future as a litigant, and the future of our country, dictated by a prosecutor unable to gain admission to a better school, or worse, so personally Right Wing, that he/she attended Jerry Falwell U.

Of course, upon taking office - Obama, that wild- eyed socialist did nothing to repair the damage. He wanted to "move forward".

First maybe you can explain why, absent a union, Jim isn't just fired and replaces by Bob, a 19 year old kid who'll do Jim's job for minimum wage.
Wait.. Maybe you first out to explain why, absent unions, Bob is entitled to a minimum wage.
Could it be the natural desire of companies to "share the profits generously with their employees?
No, that can't be it. That record is crystal clear.
Employee and profits are both higher than ever in history, and the wages paid employees have consistently fallen in real dollars.
Labor is a commodity, employers buy as cheap as they can to increase profit- that's their job.
Well - let's await the answer - This ought to be good.

So let's see, drunk driving was always a crime but was not considered a societial problem until an activist group put focus on it. But this is a poor comparison to mass murder because murder is already a crime and anything we try to do to make it more difficult for the next shooter to go on a spree infringes on freedom.
Course the problem is not mass murder, as you've shown it is an infrequent occurence, but gun violence is an all to common occurence, but our hands are tied because of freedom. Back ground checks for "private" sales, nope takes away freedom. Lower capacity magazines, nope gotta be able to stop armored vehicles and flying launch platforms because tyranny.
Your comparison would therefore logically imply we should run "back ground" checks before allowing people to order a drink at the bar (they might become a drunk driver) and should limit all patrons to one drink (why should anyone need more than one drink in an evening). You are therefore "punishing" the majority of people who drink responsibly for the actions of a few. A few who can cause great harm, but still the few.

But the issue of "gun control" legislation is not just the restrictions put on the vast majority of gun owners who are law abiding and responsible citizens - as opposed to those who commit the overwhelming preponderance of gun violence in the first place, for whom increased gun regulations will mean nothing -it is the reasonable belief that those pushing what they consider "reasonable gun restrictions" - are playing a long game that they hope will lead to eventual repeal of the 2nd Amendment.

But back to the issue of gun violence:
The Justice Dept has released a report that shows gun violence has DECREASED dramatically over the last 20 years.
Between 1993 and 2011, nonfatal gun crimes plummeted 69%; from 1.5 million to 467,300. Gun-related murders dropped 40%; from 18,253 to 11,101. Gun-related murders for black Americans plummeted by 51%. In addition, less than 2% of those state inmates who used a firearm during commission of the crime for which they were incarcerated obtained those guns at a flea market or gun show.
And do you really think the criminal, intent on doing harm, is going to only put 7 bullets in his 10 capacity magazine (like Gov Cuomo wants "responsible" citizens to do)- yeah, right.

"It is just what the bitter atheistic clingers hold on to in order to try and support their disbelief in a Creator."
Unfortunately for you this is entirely irrelevant, Evolution does not concern itself with a Creator, but does concern itself with the method for genetic change. Belief or disbelief in a Creator is not a requirement to support Evolution over ID.
Actually, it is quite relevant given the reception Darwin's theories was given within the atheistic communities and their immediate embrace of his theory to "prove" there was no longer need for a Creator. But again, I have no problem with the theory being taught, it is perfectly reasonable as we try to explain the history of life on this planet - my problem, and the problem that most who are intellectually honest about the debate have, is that it is taught as FACT without any information being given to students about the MANY questions that the theory of evolution still cannot explain - the Cambrian explosion, the relatively short amount of time life on this planet has had to somehow achieve the complexity and diversity that the fossil record shows, the absence still of any TRUE transitional species - a hole that Darwin recognized and warned could be a fatal flaw to his theory , the problem with irreducible complexity, etc. I would still contend Intelligent Design should be taught as well, but at minimum the theory of evolution should be taught as just that - THEORY still, with MANY unanswered questions.

To the conservatives on topix, stand fast and live by your principles.
To the liberals, good riddance.

Conservative principles::
Web link:
http://www.kirkcenter.org/index.php/detail/te ...

First, the conservative believes that there exists an enduring moral order.
Second, the conservative adheres to custom, convention, and continuity.
Third, conservatives believe in what may be called the principle of prescription.
Fourth, conservatives are guided by their principle of prudence.
Fifth, conservatives pay attention to the principle of variety.
Sixth, conservatives are chastened by their principle of imperfectability.
Seventh, conservatives are persuaded that freedom and property are closely linked.
Eighth, conservatives uphold voluntary community, quite as they oppose involuntary collectivism.
Ninth, the conservative perceives the need for prudent restraints upon power and upon human passions.
Tenth, the thinking conservative understands that permanence and change must be recognized and reconciled in a vigorous society.
Perhaps part of the problem is the self-defined glorious light that shines brightest on the self-deluded, as exemplified by the First, Nineth, and Tenth Order of Conservative Wisdom.

Then the Second Order of Conservative Wisdom calls for...

continuity
- The unbroken and consistent existence or operation of something over a period of time.
- A state of stability and the absence of disruption.

Which, naturally, is exemplified by the Fifth Order of Conservative Wisdom...

variety
- The quality or state of being different or diverse; the absence of uniformity, sameness, or monotony.
- A number or range of things of the same general class that are different or distinct in character or quality.

Now the Sixth Order of Conservative Wisdom claims the superiority of mediocrity, yet they revere the liberals who fashioned...

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

And of course the Seventh Order of Conservative Wisdom is not shared by Liberals, except for the Liberals who founded this country.

With the Eighth Order of Conservative Wisdom collectivism is seen as purely a Liberal trait, which is true as the Founding Fathers clearly stated in the Preamble to the US Constitution, the people consent to collectively act thru government to resolve issues, promote the general welfare, and protect liberties and property.

Perhaps it would be best if Bored did retire from posting here, and concentrate his efforts on like-minded forums that will relieve his excessive-compulsive disorder.

And the relevance of who embraced or opposed Evolution 150 years ago has what bearing on today. And if you find it significant that atheists embrace Evolution, then it would be equally significant that Christians also embrace Evolution, as do people from many different religions, professions, and socio/economic positions.

the Cambrian explosion
http://www.talkorigins.org/indexcc/CC/CC300.h...

- The Cambrian explosion was the seemingly sudden appearance of a variety of complex animals about 540 million years ago (Mya), but it was not the origin of complex life. Evidence of multicellular life from about 590 and 560 Mya appears in the Doushantuo Formation in China (Chen et al. 2000, 2004), and diverse fossil forms occurred before 555 Mya (Martin et al. 2000).(The Cambrian began 543 Mya., and the Cambrian explosion is considered by many to start with the first trilobites, about 530 Mya.) Testate amoebae are known from about 750 Mya (Porter and Knoll 2000). There are tracelike fossils more than 1,200 Mya in the Stirling Range Formation of Australia (Rasmussen et al. 2002). Eukaryotes (which have relatively complex cells) may have arisen 2,700 Mya, according to fossil chemical evidence (Brocks et al. 1999). Stromatolites show evidence of microbial life 3,430 Mya (Allwood et al. 2006). Fossil microorganisms may have been found from 3,465 Mya (Schopf 1993). There is isotopic evidence of sulfur-reducing bacteria from 3,470 Mya (Shen et al. 2001) and possible evidence of microbial etching of volcanic glass from 3,480 Mya (Furnes et al. 2004).

- There are transitional fossils within the Cambrian explosion fossils. For example, there are lobopods (basically worms with legs) which are intermediate between arthropods and worms (Conway Morris 1998).

- The length of the Cambrian explosion is ambiguous and uncertain, but five to ten million years is a reasonable estimate; some say the explosion spans forty million years or more, starting about 553 million years ago. Even the shortest estimate of five million years is hardly sudden.

http://www.talkorigins.org/indexcc/CC/CC301.h...
- The Precambrian fossils that have been found are consistent with a branching pattern and inconsistent with a sudden Cambrian origin. For example, bacteria appear well before multicellular organisms, and there are fossils giving evidence of transitionals leading to halkierids and arthropods.

- Genetic evidence also shows a branching pattern in the Precambrian, indicating, for example, that plants diverged from a common ancestor before fungi diverged from animals.

Creationists stubbornly cling to the ridiculous argument that "it's only a theory". They refuse to acknowledge what science has been saying for decades. Evolution is, in fact, both Theory and fact. The Theory does not negate the fact. To deny this is just plain old stubbornness. Talk about "intellectual dishonesty". And ID is not science. Discuss it in comparative religion. It doesn't belong anywhere near a science classroom. Well maybe in an anthropology class.
It's sad that this kind of information has to be shown over and over and over again to folks who can read and write, but here it is.
http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/evolution-fac...
>"When non-biologists talk about biological evolution they often confuse two different aspects of the definition. On the one hand there is the question of whether or not modern organisms have evolved from older ancestral organisms or whether modern species are continuing to change over time. On the other hand there are questions about the mechanism of the observed changes... how did evolution occur? Biologists consider the existence of biological evolution to be a fact. It can be demonstrated today and the historical evidence for its occurrence in the past is overwhelming. However, biologists readily admit that they are less certain of the exact mechanism of evolution; there are several theories of the mechanism of evolution. Stephen J. Gould has put this as well as anyone else:
In the American vernacular, "theory" often means "imperfect fact"--part of a hierarchy of confidence running downhill from fact to theory to hypothesis to guess. Thus the power of the creationist argument: evolution is "only" a theory and intense debate now rages about many aspects of the theory. If evolution is worse than a fact, and scientists can't even make up their minds about the theory, then what confidence can we have in it? Indeed, President Reagan echoed this argument before an evangelical group in Dallas when he said (in what I devoutly hope was campaign rhetoric): "Well, it is a theory. It is a scientific theory only, and it has in recent years been challenged in the world of science--that is, not believed in the scientific community to be as infallible as it once was."
Well evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape-like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered.
Moreover, "fact" doesn't mean "absolute certainty"; there ain't no such animal in an exciting and complex world. The final proofs of logic and mathematics flow deductively from stated premises and achieve certainty only because they are not about the empirical world. Evolutionists make no claim for perpetual truth, though creationists often do (and then attack us falsely for a style of argument that they themselves favor). In science "fact" can only mean "confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional consent." I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.
Evolutionists have been very clear about this distinction of fact and theory from the very beginning, if only because we have always acknowledged how far we are from completely understanding the mechanisms (theory) by which evolution (fact) occurred. Darwin continually emphasized the difference between his two great and separate accomplishments: establishing the fact of evolution, and proposing a theory--natural selection--to explain the mechanism of evolution."<

SC votes have decided to return Mark Sanford to public service, even after he trespassed in his ex-wife's home.

Regardless of what cases a US Attorney is working on, are you suggesting that they cannot separate their personal and professional lives. Or perhaps you are suggesting that there is only a certain type of person that can investigate Fox News.
