I can assure you I am neither "dishonest" or "blind". Difference between you and is I am NOT paranoid and could care less what an anonymous proxy posts. Registered posters harass and insult also. I take total responsibility for my behavior just as YOU should. Belittling and berating posters incessantly as you do is spiteful and vicious. I will take "childish" over that any day.
You are no different than the other far left liberal trolls who resort to vicious berating "when someone doesn't post to them the way they feel they should be posted to". You routinely come on this thread and began responding to post after post with your customary, arrogant, belittling retorts. I guess this must be your daily entertainment.
I think I will go to bed now so find someone else to vilify.

This pretty much kills the IRS scandal
The scandal has been a fiction all along as new documents show the IRS targeted liberal groups as well
BY ALEX SEITZ-WALD
Remember the IRS scandal? How the tax agency improperly singled out Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny in a nefarious political vendetta against conservatives because the agency is either inherently liberal or was acting on orders from the Democratic President? Remember how it cost even Mitt Romney the election?
Well, as it turns out, that whole scandal is entirely bogus. False. A fiction. The entire notion that the agency singled out groups with “Tea Party” in their name in simply wrong, we learn today, thanks to new documents revealed by the Associated Press. The documents, and confirmation from officials, show the IRS targeted groups with other keywords in their names, including “Progressive” and “Occupy.”
“There was a wide-ranging set of categories and cases that spanned a broad spectrum” on the lists, newly appointed IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel said on a conference call with reporters.
So the IRS was targeting Tea Party groups, but it was also targeting progressive groups, which means it wasn’t really singling out anyone. And remember the only group actually denied tax-exempt status was a progressive one.
This should put this matter to bed forever. All along, everyone agreed that the problem with the IRS’ behavior was that the agency seemed to be giving extra scrutiny to groups of one political affiliation, and not the other. Now we know that it targeted groups on both sides.

I see you posts are getting longer and longer.
Your argument as well as Aphelion's has always been moot. You both tried to make it about "posting unregistered" when it has always been about the use of anonymous proxies to insult and harass.
Your attempts to deflect the focus from the conservative anonymous proxy use to the issue of "unregistered vs registered" was obvious.
If you can't see the difference between a registered poster and a poster who hides behind a proxy to avoid responsibility for what they post then you are either dishonest or blind.
As for you childish name calling. You are responsible for your behavior. Do not blame me for it. No one forced you to call me a name like a two year old. I didn't call you a name did I? No, I didn't. lol
I never said I wasn't going to reply to you. I said if you can't handle my replies without resorting to childish name calling than maybe you shouldn't reply? Again, It's not like you're any different than the other far right conservative trolls that resort to petty name calling when someone doesn't post to them the way the feel they should be posted to. It didn't take much did it? Nope.
lol
X-girl still railing about proxies. Geez ... She's the "Hero" of the posting world, ever present to aid the registered users in their battle against the evil unregistered proxy posters. Extolling the bravery of the registered posters and calling out the cowardly unregistered.

You're being spun, America. On the vital question of whether the Internal Revenue Service incompetently or corruptly targeted conservative groups, both the White House and GOP are rushing to judgment – and they want you to follow like lemmings.

Don't do it.

Nearly six weeks ago, President Obama responded to an inspector general's report detailing the targeting, which had been long denied by the IRS. "The misconduct that it uncovered is inexcusable. It's inexcusable, and Americans are right to be angry about it, and I am angry about it," Obama said, vowing to "hold the responsible parties accountable."

The IG report was based on a cursory audit. It was not a full-fledged investigation. And yet Democrats disingenuously claimed that it exonerated the Obama administration and the president's re-election campaign from any involvement in IRS targeting.

To truly "hold the responsible parties accountable," Obama still needed a thorough and impartial inquiry led by investigators who would question witnesses under oath, and would subpoena the White House and his own re-election campaign for related emails and other documents.

He did not ask for that.

Smelling blood, the GOP-controlled House launched an investigation led by Rep. Darrell Issa of California. Never mistaken for an impartial investigator, Issa quickly declared that IRS targeting was "ordered from Washington" – a thinly veiled indictment of the White House. His evidence? A few cherry-picked interviews with IRS officials and an Orwellian subtext: "We're getting to proving it," Issa said. On June 3 I wrote of Issa: "Meet the best friend of a controversy-plagued Democratic White House: a demagogic Republican."

Meanwhile, Obama backed his strong words with middling action, transferring political ally Danny Werfel from the Office of Management and Budget to the IRS, where as acting commissioner Werfel would investigate his own administration.

Why, after the agency's massive breach of trust, would Obama think a Werfel-led investigation will restore the public's faith?

Werfel announced Monday that instructions used by the IRS to look for applicants seeking tax-exempt status with "Tea Party" and "Patriots" in their title also included groups whose names included the word "Progressive" and "Occupy." Jonathon Weisman of The New York Times reported, "The documents appeared to back up contentions by IRS officials and some Democrats that the agency did not intend to single out conservative groups for special scrutiny."

The White House and its allies declared the scandal over. Said David Axelrod, one of Obama's longest-serving advisers, said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show: "I think the implication that this was some sort of scheme is falling apart."

Don't buy it. Like Issa and the GOP, Democrats are jumping to convenient conclusions based on incomplete evidence and no credible investigation.

There is a hard truth that partisans won't admit: Until more is known, we can't implicate or exonerate anybody.

Somebody like …. a special prosecutor. Those words are hard for me to type two decades after an innocent land deal I covered in Arkansas turned into the runaway Whitewater investigation.

What the IRS did, Obama said less than six weeks ago, was "inexcusable." That's a good word to describe what Republicans and Democrats in Washington are doing now -- cherry-picking evidence from partisan and cursory inquiries, treating Americans like lemmings and the truth like a leper.

That's my point, because you are a registered user, if you did, you would be held responsible for your actions.
This would not be the case if you were using an anonymous proxy.
In what way am I being paranoid? You calling me a "jerk" makes me laugh, because it is so petty and typical.
If you pay attention, you will see the posts of proxy users that are insulting others removed. Unfortunately Topix does not take this any further than that and rarely even banns these users because it is so easy for them to come back under another proxy.
Hence, the reason why I made the point about proxy users in the first place. They do it to avoid taking responsibility for their behavior. What about this don't you understand? Lol
Since when did topix ever archive any posts?

Perhaps this could restore our tarnished image, but we are being hampered by Obama and ilk who wants us to continue to stay the course just as before in order to continue with his agenda of communism and spying on private citizens.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court struck down a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act on Wednesday and declared that same-sex couples who are legally married deserve equal rights to the benefits under federal law that go to all other married couples.

The decision is a landmark win for the gay rights movement. It voids a section of the law known as DOMA, which was adopted with bipartisan support in Congress in 1996 to deny all benefits and recognition to same-sex couples.

At that time, no state permitted gays and lesbians to marry. Now, 12 states and the District of Columbia authorize same-sex marriages.

http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2013/06/26/supreme-...
DOMA 'was a 'clinton' project :)
anyway!

This is a breaking news story. Stay tuned for updates.

The Supreme Court has struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) this morning (read the ruling here) and subsequently also threw out the contentious Prop 8 appeal (read that decision here).

The portion of the DOMA law that has been ruled against is a provision that denies benefits to legally-married gay couples. Gay couples, under federal law, will now be considered “married.” And in California, same-sex marriages will be able to potentially resume.

The rulings do not impact gay marriage rights in the 38 states where it is currently not legal on the books. <<--<<<

The DOMA vote was 5-4, with Justice Anthony Kennedy writing for himself and the liberals on the court.

He wrote that DOMA is a violation of “basic due process and equal protection principles applicable to the federal government.”

On a more intriguing note, the argument that DOMA infringed on states rights to define marriage was also noted.
