What does Texas being the site of 13 major disaster relief areas in recent years have to do with anything, Miner? Are you trying to say that Bush or Governor Perry somehow colluded with the weather to create said disasters? Do you think Texas has never been the site of a federal disaster area before?(Ever heard of the notorious hurricane of 1900, which devasted Galveston, TX? One of the worst national disasters in American history).
Miner, do you have any idea how stupid you look with this "Texas isn't part of the United States" nonsense? It's about the most desperate, amateurish, thread-bare "let's-smear-Bush" ploy I've ever heard of, and by now I've heard plenty. It's pathetic, Miner, especially considering it's an attempt to defend a sitting POTUS by attacking one who left office MORE THAN FOUR YEARS AGO. And may I point out that if neither Bush Sr. nor Bush Jr. were legally POTUS, then neither was Lyndon Johnson, from whose "Great Society" programs almost all other social welfare programs have sprung.
If that weren't enough, you get your raw material from MOTHERJONES?? That alone tells me all I need to know about your credibility, Miner.
Dwight David Eisenhower, commander of the Allied Forces in WWII and our 34th President, was born in Denison, Texas. I pass his birthplace every time I visit my favorite Oklahoma casino.

""Texas isn't part of the United States" nonsense"

Not my fault Texas never met the requirements for readmission to the Union, it's just a historical fact and a matter of public record:

"President Andrew Johnson appointed Union General Andrew J. Hamilton, a prominent politician before the war, as the provisional governor on June 17. He granted amnesty to ex-Confederates if they promised to support the Union in the future, appointing some to office. However, it was not until March 30, 1870, that the United States Congress permitted Texas' representatives to take their seat in Congress,[16] although Texas did not meet all the formal requirements for readmission."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_in_the_Ame...

Obama's birth certificate is held in the Public Records of the State of Hawaii.

Thanks to Article IV, Section 1 of the US Constitution every other State must honor the birth certificate:

"the "Full Faith and Credit Clause", addresses the duties that states within the United States have to respect the "public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_Faith_and_C...

And Hawaii is part of the Union, they never committed open, armed rebellion against the Constitution of the United States.

Yep. It had been some time since I heard something so far out. Reminds me of after Katrina when people insisted Bush blew out the levees. Just so much crap. I'm sure if he could relive that day Zimmerman never would have never followed him. But he did a very stupid thing and now here we are.

Lis is right about one thing; that 'star' witness sounded like she had OD'd on sedatives before taking the stand. I wanted to scream at the TV, "SPEAK UP!!

"I look forward to the Democrats bringing several of those groups in as witnesses. To date, they haven't produced even "one" example."

Did you read my post?

Here's an example:

"The liberal group Catholics United, for instance, waited seven years before receiving tax exempt status, far longer than any tea party group was forced to wait."
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/06/26/issa-di ...

catholics United was willing to follow the process without complainting to Congress.
The teabaggers should stop whining and follow the their example.

It goes much further than that Lis. They're not up on Geography, History, English Spelling & Grammar, Current Events, Economics, and except for a select few, Politics.

But they know video games, all the latest movies, and all the hip hop rappers, etc.

Sure, they didn't breach the EMBASSY's walls...
In Libya it was an covert safehouse, that's a risk you take when you slip into a country to neigotiate with a rebel government during a time of civil unrest.
So a planned attack on our EMBASSY in Syria leaves 4 dead and no one is fired?
They were the attackers that were killed!

If your personnel are killed in an attack something is wrong with your security.
You think everything is great 'cause no Americans were killed?
No need to fire anyone because of the security failure because only the brown people were killed?
Why would anyone get fired for killing the al-qaeda attackers... who cares what color their skin was?
miner49er wrote:
OK, who lost their job because of the intelligence failures that led to 3000 dead Americans on 9/11/01?
President Clinton was already out of office, so there was no point in trying to fire him for the faulty intelligence policies his administration implemented. President Bush implemented procedures to get the different intelligence groups to share information, making it easier to foil attacks. Bush's policies were doing very well in preventing attacks on American soil, until obama took over, and implemented "political correctness" into the mix.
miner49er wrote:
Where was Bush on 9/12/01?
You're kidding. Once he realized that the unthinkable was happening, President Bush instituted steps to ensure that no more planes were used against us that day... and that the USA was safe from attack for the rest of his Presidency.
miner49er wrote:
Oh yeah, waving bye-bye to the bin Laden family as they escaped to Saudi Arabia on the only flights Bush authorized to fly the day after 9/11.
"Even though American airspace had been shut down, the Bush administration allowed a jet to fly around the US picking up family members from 10 cities, including Los Angeles, Washington DC, Boston and Houston.
Some 140 high ranking Saudi officials were also on the plane."
You're sadly mistaken, he was waving at the military aircraft he had up ensuring our skys were safe.
miner49er wrote:
Of course, Reagan and Bush are white folks so they get a pass for their intelligence failures that led to 3,258 DEAD AMERICANS.
Not to mention Bush's 4,000 DEAD AMERICANS in the WRONG COUNTRY in a War of Lies.
How do you conservatives even look at yourself in the mirror?
Have you been to the Vietnam Memorial? You can thank President Johnson for escalating that war the way he did. Over 58,000 DEAD AMERICANS, and millions of dead Vietnamese. Even he realized how bad he screwed up, and chose not to run for a second term.

You could also chalk up almost 300,000 American deaths to FDR, 55,000 more to Wilson, or 35,000 to Truman.

How can you Democrats even look at yourselfs in the mirror?

But I see you're still deflecting. We were discussing current events,(pResident obama), not ancient history.

It wasn't President Bush that blew up the levees, it was Dick Cheney. Get it right. President Bush was busy flying over New Orleans flipping Ray Nagin the bird.

Small world. "School Bus" Nagin is currently a resident of Frisco, Texas these days. However, I expect he'll soon be moving to some of that federally funded housing that comes with the free food and healthcare.

Were they too dumb to fill out the proper paperwork, or just slow in submitting it?

Maybe they should have asked obama's uncle to handle their application.

He did have a permit to carry a gun so he was within his rights on that one and I guess it wasn't against the law to be following Martin. Maybe Zimmerman was stupid. Maybe he was simply an overzealous guy who fantisized about being in law enforcement or maybe he'd just had it with the crime in his neighborhood and snapped. Don't know.
I'd like to know how his nose got broken though and I'd like to know how the back of his head was cut before the shot was fired.

As far as that key prosecution witness goes - Yikes! I hope those lawyers have alot more than than just her. Can't quite figure out why they put her up first.
I'm concerned about the jury. 6 women who have to know if they find him not guilty a whole lot of people are going to start screaming.

Oh well..... this is America where there's always the possibilty of a book deal. And when it comes to high voltage African American trials where the whole country including the POTUS weighing in, they may get on the talk show circuit too and have their own little reality TV thing going!

As you know the IRS operated on buzzwords to discriminate. "Catholic" was perhaps one of those as it is seen as a conservative description but in fact Catholics united helped get Obama elected. The IRS is not too bright.(uh-oh audit)

Yeah well, he's playing the gay card now and milking it for all it's worth. The SCOTUS rulings yesterday prompted this today in Senegal.

"Laying bare a clash of cultures, President Barack Obama on Thursday urged African leaders to extend equal rights to gays and lesbians but was bluntly rebuked by Senegal's president, who said his country "still isn't ready" to decriminalize homosexuality.

Obama opened his weeklong trip to Africa one day after the U.S. Supreme Court expanded federal benefits for married gay couples. In his first in-person comments on the ruling, Obama said the court's decision marked a "proud day for America." He pressed for similar recognition for gays in Africa, wading into a sensitive area in a region where dozens of countries outlaw homosexuality and a few punish violations with death.

"When it comes to how the state treats people, how the law treats people, I believe that everybody has to be treated equally," Obama said during a news conference with Senegalese President Macky Sall at the grand presidential palace in Dakar.

But Sall gave no ground. Senegal is "very tolerant," he assured Obama, but is "still not ready to decriminalize homosexuality." Sall said countries make decisions on complex issues in their own time, noting that Senegal has outlawed capital punishment while other countries have not — a pointed jab at the U.S., where the death penalty is legal in many states."

18 months ago Obama was against gay marriage. Today he's giving advice on the subject as a vacationing guest in someone elses country. Two days ago his multiple failings in this country were giving him an huge headache. One victory in the Supreme Court and his monumental ego has come roaring back to life.

Whatta schmuck.

Hiya Hip G,
Only one group was denied. It was a group that helped Democrat women get elected which clearly violated 501(c)(4) restrictions. 501(c)(4) are social welfare groups that are not to be primarily involved in partisan politics.

"Emerge America and its initial state programs were granted 501(c)(4) status by the IRS several years ago. Later, when a new state program applied for the same status, it was denied because Emerge works only with women who are in the Democratic Party, so the IRS determined this did not meet the definition of “social welfare” for the common good. We believed this denial triggered a review of the Emerge programs that had already been granted c4 status, and consequently those statuses were revoked."

The IG report mentions that conservative groups faced substantial delays. Here is an ugly fact to consider while sifting through all the information regarding the extremely long delays for Conservative c4 applicants:(the NTEU is the IRS employees union)
"The NTEU, through its political action committee, raised $613,633 in the 2010 cycle, giving 98% of its contributions to anti-Tea Party Democrats. In 2012 the figure was $729,708, with 94% going to anti-Tea Party candidates. One NTEU candidate after another, as discussed last week in this space, campaigned vigorously against the Tea Party."

The timeline of the IRS meetings with Obama and resultant policy changes is rather interesting to peruse.

The word you're looking for is 'Putz'. I remember back in 1977, when one of the networks was going to air 'The Sunshine Boys' with Walter Matthau and George Burns. They had a heated argument over letting it stay in the dialog or cutting it.(the word, not a penis)
Funny thing is I don't know what happened. The night it aired, my wife and I went out.
