<quoted text>You are right about the age, my mistake. I remember the outrage about the 18 missing minutes in the Nixon tapes. It was big news that would not go away but look at the selective outrage! Two years of Lois Lerners e mail are lost says the IRS and most media doesn't even mention it. It was covered by only two news channels. Missing e mail is an out right lie with all the back up systems in place to recover government in a nuclear strike. The IRS has stonewall and hidden everything they can. Only recently has a E mail surfaced do to a freedom of information suit that directly links the White House with the attack on conservative groups. That was one of the charges drawn up if Nixon had been impeached. They keep digging the hole deeper with their series of lies to protect Obama. Like Obama claimed the first thing he heard of all these scandals was in the news! VA was also learned by Obama in the news. Doesn't he have briefs??? We need a special prosecutor!
Keep polishing that FOX Follies script. Something will happen, or not as may be merited. With all the potential of investigations according to your crowd, it will almost be like shutting down the government. Awesome!

There must be a legal process to retrieve documents/email from back-up servers. There are precedents for that sort of thing. BTW, you didn't let folk know that the IRS also sat on scrutinizing some left-wing non-profits as well as the right-wing ones for discerning "social welfare" status as well as politicking.

So, a 34-year old that's NOT a snot-nose kid fresh out of college likely would merit $0.6 million in national media. I guess she is pulling down that coin. You say she is. You DID look at her qualifications, yes?! And all the same applies to Jenna Bush, yes?! Contacts and access, you see.

Again, you oughta throw your hackery on YOUR thread to awe your crowd.

1876, eight days before the Battle of Little Big Horn
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Ro...

By the standards of Indian warfare, the Battle of the Rosebud was a long and bloody engagement. The Lakota and Cheyenne fought with persistence and demonstrated a willingness to accept casualties rather than break off the encounter. The delaying action by Crook's Indian allies during the early stages of the battle saved his command from a devastating surprise attack. The intervention of the Crow and Shoshone scouts throughout the battle was crucial to averting disaster for Crook.[21]

Crook claimed victory by virtue of occupying the battlefield at the end of the day, but his actions belie his claim. Concerned for his wounded and short on supplies, Crook retraced his steps to his camp on Goose Creek, near Sheridan, Wyoming, and remained there immobile for seven weeks awaiting reinforcements.[19] He would play no role in the Battle of Little Bighorn eight days later. Crook's Crow and Shoshoni allies left the army for their homes shortly after the battle. The Lakota and Cheyenne returned to the battlefield after Crook's departure and piled up rocks at the location of key events in the battle. Some of the rock piles they built are still there.[22]

Where Native Americans are coming from "all of a sudden" relative to the American football team Washington Redskins mascot name

"all of a sudden" in 1992
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Redsk...
In 1992, a group of American Indians led by Suzan Harjo filed Harjo et al v. Pro Football, Inc. to have the United States trademarks associated with the Redskins name canceled under statutes which prevent registration of disparaging terms [explained more in article]

for teams mascot names comprehensively "all of a sudden" since the 1940s:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_American_...
In the 1940s the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) created a campaign to eliminate negative stereotyping of Native American people in the media. Over time, the campaign began to focus on Indian names and mascots in sports.[8] The NCAI maintains that teams with mascots such as the Braves and the Redskins perpetuate negative stereotypes of Native American people, and demean their native traditions and rituals.[9] Proponents of Native American mascots, however, believe that Native American mascots pay respect to these people and promote a better understanding of their cultures. Despite this issue gaining prominence during the civil rights movement, it still continues today as many teams continue to possess mascots with controversial names and images.

The stereotyping of Native Americans must be understood in the context of history which includes conquest, forced relocation, and organized efforts to eradicate native cultures, such as the boarding schools of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, which separated young Native Americans from their families in order to educate them as Euro-Americans.[10] As stated in an editorial by Carter Meland (Anishinaabe heritage) and David E. Wilkins (Lumbee) both professors of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota: "Since the first Europeans made landfall in North America, native peoples have suffered under a weltering array of stereotypes, misconceptions and caricatures. Whether portrayed as noble savages, ignoble savages, teary-eyed environmentalists or, most recently, simply as casino-rich, native peoples find their efforts to be treated with a measure of respect and integrity undermined by images that flatten complex tribal, historical and personal experience into one-dimensional representations that tells us more about the depicters than about the depicted." [11]

Nixon was not corrupt. Watergate was a second rate break in. The cover up was the crime. Obama has covered up Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS used to fight political enemies, NSA violating 4th amendment, Black Panther voter intimidation. Not to mention breaking the law by Gitmo release and picking and choosing immigration laws he would enforce and changing the law on Obama care without going through congress

He was given a pardon but was never charged with a crime. As long as Obama has Eric Holder in charge of the justice department the IRS will not be forced by prosecution to give the e mails to congress. Congress ask for the e mails of 6 other people and they were told their e mails were also lost. This goes straight to the White House as has been proved by one of the emails they have tried to hide for 2 years . Obama knows if the emails are released it will give more proof where Lerner got her marching orders

<< rest snipped for space >>
Good afternoon/evening Kitchen-eers. Lo and behold "all of a sudden"

http://news.yahoo.com/trademark-board-rules-a...

The decision means that the team can continue to use the Redskins name, but it would lose a significant portion of its ability to protect the financial interests connected to its use. If others printed the name on sweatshirts, apparel, or other team material, it becomes more difficult to go after groups who use it without permission.

The case involves six registered trademarks that involve the use of the word Redskins, but it does not apply to the team's logo.

The decision by the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board is similar to one it issued in 1999. That ruling was overturned in 2003 in large part on a technicality after the courts decided that the plaintiffs should have filed their complaint soon after the Redskins registered their nickname in 1967.

The new case was launched in 2006 by a younger group of Native Americans, and was heard by the board in March of last year.

The group argued that the Redskins should lose their federal trademark protection based on a law that prohibits registered names that are disparaging, scandalous, contemptuous or disreputable.

Suzan Shown Harjo, one of the plaintiffs who testified at last year's hearing, said she was "thrilled and delighted" with the decision. Snyder declined to speak to reporters as he walked off the practice field, but the team said it planned to release a statement later in the day.

[Harjo was involved in the 1992 law suit "up there"]

In Washington, lawmakers who have pushed for a name change applauded the decision. In May, half of the Senate wrote letters to the NFL urging the team to change its name.

" Nixon was not corrupt." "The cover up was the crime." Contradictory.

Nixon was forehead deep in the coverup; ergo, Nixon was corrupt.

You were on a roll, but then "Black Panther voter intimidation". What's that got to do with Obama/administration?

You trying on daft, or disingenious?

"Black Panther voter intimidation". We have visited that before.

Facts don't happen in vacuum. One or two Black Panthers did show up at a polling place or two in the Philadelphia area, I do believe. At any rate, it was in one of the states that passed voter nullification laws (including Indiana, but it wasn't here). That's the context AND, that was handled by the pertinent authorities without going 'viral' to vast number of polling sites. There is some sensitivity to that sort of thing. These regressive laws have shades (used deliberately) of Jim Crow laws and practices. That's super-context.

Facts without detail of enumeration/scale and context are hollow facts.

The black panters were filmed standing in front of the place where they were voting holding baseball bats. Eric Holde who was appointed by Obama refused to prosecute. Holder will fail to prosecute anyone violating the law in the IRS. That is why Obama's IRS claims they not only lose Learners e mails but 6 others involved with using the IRS to fight Obama's political opponents
