Much ado about nothing.

The SC merely threw out the "formula" from which voter participation was measured as it is outdated and sent it back to congress to revise and make it current.

The hyperbolic hyperventilating from the Left is silly. It's not like minority voting rights groups are going to be probed by the IRS and their tax-exempt statuses delayed for years on end....'cuz THAT would be, like, discrimination or something.

now gop can pass restrictions to prevent rampant voter id fraud, voting times/locations, districts 'till the cows come home and the budget restricted (what? gop, again?) doj won't be able to keep up with whack-a-mole chasing each case of disenfranchisement
.
IRS targeted liberal tax-exempt applications as well, so turns out Issa beating's a dead horse while wasting taxpayer money on the SCANDAL. gop should be creating jobs, not taking them away with sequestration

From your link,"His testimony was consistent with what Lois Lerner, the IRS director of exempt organizations, revealed in May. She said tea party applications were centralized “for efficiency and consistency,” but that doing so was inappropriate.

“This was a streamlined way for them to refer to the cases,” she explained.“They didn’t have the appropriate level of sensitivity about how this might appear to others and it was just wrong.”

You keep drinking that Kool-Aid and pretty soon you will believe the world is flat.

You fail to understand they streamlined in the same way liberal applications, which BTW, were far fewer.

You'd think the right would be more interested in jobs, than securing tax write offs for big wig donors.

Texas and Mississippi wasted no time starting legislation after the court decision. Didn't wait 24 hours to get the wheels turning. If we can't win on policy, we'll just gerrymander, Citizen United, and restrict votes until we do!

Mr. Boehner said their priority was jobs. Haven't really focused on that yet. But we did manage to get legislation on abortions and voting to repeal Obamacare again out of the way.

I no longer believe that you quit teaching. Did you not understand the analogy for "there is no time for the flat earth society?"

They also don't believe we actually landed on the moon, have real pictures of a global earth, and that gravity does not exist. Seriously, you're kidding, right? I mean, you really don't get it?

Hopefully you're just joking, too; or are you going to tell me that the earth is 6,000 years old and Jesus rode dinosaurs?

All you SCANDAL followers are the gullible ones.
Time and again the do-nutin', headline-grubbing congressional INVESTIGATIONS, re-run 24/7 by fauxnews and talkshow crazies, have proven to been just empty setups.
You should be complaining they aren't earning their pay with meaningful work.

I read the whole thread. In order to be congruent with post #9, you were accusing it of being a conspiracy. Then you accused Obama of being a flat earther. Seriously, do you not get that YOU'RE the one that is being a conspiracy theorist by suggesting or alluding to Obama knowing and by the targeting being politically specific, not huck? Did you even pay attention to the political affiliation with who ordered the targeting? Furthermore, by accusing Obama of being a flat earther, you still did not get the context that the "we have no time for flat-earth society" comment was made. Try to be consistent and keep up with your own conversations.

Just like those:

"weapons of mass destruction"
""giving more tax breaks to the job creators, we will all benefit"
"a woman's body has a way of shutting pregnancy down during rape"
"47 percent of the country is lazy"
"Obama is a muslim"
"Obama is a foreigner"
"we are on our way to becoming Greece"

If that were the case, the GOP would be ashes.
