Hey, Rodman did apologize for hollering at the reporter-said he was drunk.

IRS goes after citizens associated with the Tea Party and conservative groups. Remember how fast the IRS was on Dr. Carson's butt after he dared challenge Obamacare?

New Jersey Lane Closures Delayed Emergency Response To 91-Year-Old Woman Who Later Died: Report
""Emergency response teams were reportedly delayed in traffic caused by lane closures on the George Washington Bridge in September, including one vehicle responding to a 91-year-old woman in cardiac arrest who later died.
The lane closures and its resulting gridlock, which created major problems for New Jersey commuters, have become a political headache for Gov. Chris Christie (R), who has maintained that he had nothing to do with the decision to close the lanes.
According to a letter from EMS coordinator Paul Favia to Fort Lee, N.J. Mayor Mark Sokolich obtained by The Bergen Record, at least four emergency vehicles were stuck in traffic caused by the unannounced lane closures, doubling response time in at least two of the cases.
The Record reports:
On Sept. 9, the first day of the traffic paralysis, EMS crews took seven to nine minutes to arrive at the scene of a vehicle accident where four people were injured, when the response time should have been less than four minutes, he wrote.
It also took EMS seven minutes to reach an unconscious 91-year-old woman who later died of cardiac arrest at a hospital. Although he did not say her death was directly caused by the delays, Favia noted that “paramedics were delayed due to heavy traffic on Fort Lee Road and had to meet the ambulance en-route to the hospital instead of on the scene.”
Now that Christie has self destructed, this clears the way for a Hillary landslide!!
Unannounced lane closures were responsible for several medical emergency delays. Additionally the four days of closures created a plethora of problems that cost businesses and individuals time and money.

During four days of front page and lead in headlines and perhaps thousands of emails to the state capitol building it's difficult to believe that no one with authority realized that the traffic study was bogus.

Isn't that the busiest bridge in the United States?

Yes, they are changing design of new office buildings. But they also run into windows in my house, and I like windows!!
Adding more stuff that kills birds doesn't make sense.
Even with windmills, the past years have seen an explosion of fossil fuel activities, huge areas denuded for fracking all over the USA. And we're still mining and exporting coal like mad.
So there is no net gain in windmills. Just another producer of energy, and not all that green!!
If we eliminated one bad activity when we adopt another, it would be better. But all we do is pile more and more on, to the point Mother Nature is in full disarray. There's an old Neil Young song "After the Gold Rush":
""Well, I dreamed I saw the knights
In armor coming,
Saying something about a queen.
There were peasants singing and
Drummers drumming
And the archer split the tree.
There was a fanfare blowing
To the sun
That was floating on the breeze.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.
Look at Mother Nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies.""
That was true 40 years ago, even more true today. =1e3m_T-NMOsXX
do you need windows on your house? yes, i agree we need buildings, but why do we need windows in them? we WANT windows in them. good try, but not quite all the way there...

what areas are denuded for fracking? it actually has a small surface footprint.

facts are fun!

Don't think he ever got started. Unless you were the only one who heard him announce his 2016 candidacy and his withdrawal from the presidential race. Because I didn't.
A lot can happen in just one week in politics. We've got two more years to go before the mean lean liberal lying machine even starts its engines.
He's got my vote if he runs, either him or Hillary, they are about the same politically, middle of the road.

At least Christie had the balls to fire those involved. Do you think that Obama will ever have the balls to fire the people responsible for Fast and Furious, or the Benghazi attack?
Balls? What balls? He has balls? Where? Are they sitting on Valerie Jarrett's shelf like a trophy?

This president is about as neutered as any president can get without being transgender. Pretty sure Michelle doesn't even allow him to have them.

He has to get permission from two stronger women just to pretend he has them.

But please don't get me started....

The IRS Non-Scandal "Scandal"

The Internal Revenue “scandal” has turned out not to be a scandal. As a Washington Post headline read:“The Obama IRS scandal retreats to the fever swamps.”

The radical Right looked in vain for a “smoking gun” that would link Barack Obama to the charge that the IRS had “targeted” Tea Party groups that were seeking tax-exempt status as “social welfare” organizations. Even the term “targeting” turned out to be pejorative. It was more a case of putting a few similar applications in the same pile so they would receive consistent treatment.

As commentator William Boardman noted early on:“Much of the media goes on reporting as fact the partisan spin placed on a ‘scandal’ that was not really a ‘scandal’ at all.” MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell also deserves credit for distinguishing facts from spin from the beginning of the story.

Even the mainstream media – after much initial sloppy, knee-jerk reporting – finally realized that they and the American public were being played by the Republican Party.(The White House also doesn’t get high marks for calm or clarity in its first reactions.)

The collapse of the “scandal” became undeniable when Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, released the full transcript of an interview with a mid-level IRS bureaucrat in Cincinnati who explained that the isolation of Tea Party-related applications for tax-exempt status was just a local decision to provide consistent handling of similar cases.

With that disclosure – in defiance of the efforts by Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-California, to keep the exculpatory transcript secret – the last air went out of the pumped-up IRS “scandal.”

In response to Limbaugh’s charge that the IRS suppressed Tea Party votes in the 2012 election, J. Russell George, Treasury Inspector General, a Republican who worked in the administrations of both George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush overseeing the IRS, said:“It is noteworthy that zero cases [of Tea Party claims for tax-exempt status] have been denied.”

caution, this may require independent thinking, you may want to sit down before attempting this maneuver as you run a high risk of blowing an aneurism in the process...
An independent thinker easily recognizes the several political scandals involving the current administration.

Topix is filled with people like you - narrow-minded apologists for Obama and the democrat party.

You all sound like ignorant versions of Jay Carney, parroting the left wing line.

You are smacking around you fellow liberals then. Ok, that's good.

You destroyed your credibility when you lied your first day here, saying you were a "conservative", then even a libtard like dem nailed you for lying. You then proceeded to lie about being here before a few days ago. The list goes on and on, serial liar.

Have a nice day, liar!

Oh, it was just more phony BS from the leftist hypocrites?
This has nothing to do with the job the Pope is doing. If the church loses it's tax exempt status, I will still support the job the pope is doing in trying to refocus the church's attention away from the amassing of wealth to the helping of the poor.
