Key players in the IRS scandal are to testify again.
CNN-The Republican National Committee released a video this week that accused the Obama administration of dodging responsibility. It included footage of IRS officials testifying before congressional committees, edited to highlight when they said they didn't know or were unable to remember details.
"Americans deserve answers to why their First Amendment rights were so egregiously violated," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said. "Turning a blind eye and claiming not to know, or remember, what actions were carried out is no excuse for targeting individuals based on their beliefs. These are simple questions, and if they can't answer it raises another: what are they hiding?"
...What are they hiding, indeed.
Really stupid? Just how were anyone's 1st Amendment rights violated? Nobody was prevented from presenting their views liar. The First Amendment right to free speech doesn't include the right to a tax exempt status. But go ahead Carol keep reminding us everyday what a truly clueless twit you are.

Labor provides the votes, while moochers and illegal immigrants get all the benefits.
Yeah, I was going to mention that yesterday but it slipped my mind.

Apparently, some unions wrote a letter to this administration very unhappy that Obamacare is going to hurt "their" employees.

Hilarious, I thought.

The National Rifle Association blasted Eric Holder for using the George Zimmerman case to attack "stand-your-ground" laws, accusing the attorney general of exploiting Trayvon Martin's shooting death for political gain.

If Trayvon had been shot for looking at someone the wrong way while in any housing project, it would have not been news at all.
It's the culture...
You can be sure that the settlement made no admission of responsibility and likely contained a requirement for confidentiality. If Trayvon's parents talk about it too much, they may jeopardize the money.

Best to keep quiet while movin' on up.

Term limits once was one of the battle cries when demanding change and accountability.

Maybe it's time for another movement and risk being called racists again.

Term limits should be at the top of the republican platform in 2016. If they have any kahunas, it will be.

I'm holding out Rand Paul will be at least one future GOP candidate who puts country before party.

It's my guess moderates and independents would also get behind that candidate.

Surveillance video submitted to a court on Tuesday showed a 76-year-old white Milwaukee man fatally shooting his 13-year-old black neighbor in the chest as the teen’s mother watched.

During opening statements in the trial for John Spooner, jurors saw video of 13-year-old Darius Simmons taking the trash bin in from the street on May 31, 2012. Spooner then confronts the teen on a sidewalk between their homes. He points a pistol at the teen, and then at the boy’s mother as she watches from the porch.

Seconds later, he points the gun back at Simmons’ chest and fires. The boy runs away and a second shot misses.
According to The Associated Press, Simmons’ mother, Patricia Larry, testified the jury that Spooner had told her to call 9-1-1 and that he was going to teach the boy a lesson for stealing.

At the time of the shooting, Spooner explained to police that some shotguns and other items had been stolen from his home and he believed Simmons was to blame.

He admitted shooting the teen, but said that he was at a breaking point after having a lung removed due to cancer, losing his wife, being beaten and burglarized.

Rachel Jeantel maintains that Zimmerman was not facing a potentially life-threatening 'bashing,' but simply a 'whoop ass.'" Here's her quote, from Monday night on CNN: "They don't understand, they understand,'Oh, he would just bash, or was kill.' When somebody bash somebody, like, blood people, trust me, in the area I live, that's not bashing. That's just called 'whoop ass.' You just got your ass whooped. That's what it is."

The point that she was making was that it was Zimmerman's fault for not understanding the cultural context in which he was being attacked. Now, those are not Rachel Jeantel's words. She did not say that Zimmerman "didn't understand the cultural context." What she said was that Zimmerman didn't understand that Trayvon Martin didn't want to kill him. He was just doing a little whoop ass, and Zimmerman overreacted.

Yes, and why didn't the prosecution bring this up? Wasn't he also taking anti depressants and xanax?
Adderall at the max daily dose and Temazepam to sleep, perhaps he was taking other prescription meds as well. Uppers to focus and downers to sleep__sound familiar? It's fair to say that George was a fkn mess, once even leaving a job to escape a wage garnishment because he reneged on a credit card settlement.

His friends were all much older than he, what's up with that and how about his pal Frank who appeared on the HLN comedy hour almost nightly since George's arrest? What a fkn piece of work that clown is. He was on the witness list, it was his window that the youth was supposedly peering into. Imagine that racist stooge sworn to tell the truth. If I had that guy's bio I'd haul azz for a foreign country that would honor HLN checks.

The prosecution could have been more aggressive particularly with law enforcement who created all this nonsense by cutting George loose before they ID'd the body. The thin blue line is real.

It is certainly a step forward by the European Union and long over due. Next is to remove illegal Jewish settlers from the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Then, the peace process can begin.
The "peace process" will never begin until the so-called Palestinians and their puppetmasters acknowledge the right of Israel to exist.

You have to look no further than the present administration and the Senate who seem to hate America as much as, if not more than, their fellow radical liberals.

Are you a fellow radical liberal, Homer?
