The liberals keep forgetting, nay mostly just ignoring that the Constitution was developed and put in place to have power over and limit government from becoming too dictatorial against the people. It was designed to give the people some control over their government in order to provide a level of continued protection against a corrupt government.
Froggy, you keep forgetting that they don't care about the Constitution. Their pledge to protect and defend the Constitution of this country and it laws are just word they have to repeat every few years to continue receiving their paychecks.
I heard today that many of the claims made years ago about global cooling by the same people that claim global warning today are mystified about the INCREASED ice coverage this year. Hummm, wonder why?
And before Lady Echo proceeds on another rant that is as equally boring as most of his writings, I am not persuaded that there is global warming or that there isn't, for sure anyway. Either way I think a large part of any warming or cooling is part of the natural cycles of nature, which this planet has experienced in its existence.
There surely has been over the past centuries, a contribution from man as well. We have been taking many steps toward reduce man kinds contribution for decades and according to the same people that claim we can stop any warming through additional taxation, we have been quite successful in our efforts.
Again, this argument for most politicians and certainly for the likes of Ricky and Echo isn’t about weather or climate, but about power and money.
"But he didn't and that is exceptionally clear. That is where you have a problem. President Obama did not do this thing you've convinced yourself he did."
Bull and you know it. He may not have issued to order to any IRS employee but even if he didn't, he knew it was going on, or should have. He is the boss, the bucks stops with him, he says so...he just doesn't believe it. I am not convinced that he did it directly, but he knew about it or when he found about it, he lied that it was even happening. It happened.
First, the work permit had been paid for, properly filed and issued. The payment was to get it out of a Mexican government workers desk drawer. I could have gone on into the country without a work permit, but then when I showed up at the plant, I would have been breaking the law.
The employee used to pay for the permit was approved by the Mexican government do handle these sorts of things and we were not allowed to deal directly with the government. You don't understand the situation and keep harping on it.
And you're not a partisan hack? Everything said against Obama, any Democrat or any action taken by this administration is defended by your and your alter ego, Echo. That is not partisan? Really?
As for Christie, I am not a fan of his but he deserves to be believed until proven otherwise. I don't really care because I wouldn't vote for him anyway. He is a true RHINO. He is almost, but not quite as liberal as McCain.
"Winholder thinks we should still be talking about this 24/7”
I think we should continue talking about this until the concerns are answered. Who denied the additional security and why? Who knew about the danger in this area and why weren't those on the ground warned or protected? Why have all the witnesses not been made available to Congress?
Why did they spread the ridiculous story about this being the result of a video? Why has no one been arrested and brought to justice as promised by the President and then SOS?
What abuses of power? The Democrats are in power, how could anyone else abuse the power?
You guys already know that I’m a paid shill that is paid by the Democratic Party to sign their praises on the Internet and try to convince people that this sinking economy, the dearth of jobs in this country and the new more expensive health care money control plan is working.
Does that description fit you Sir Echo, or did I miss a few things?
In many cases it isn't what he has done, although there are plenty of example of that as well, but what he hasn't done. There are many in his administration that should have been fired long ago. He doesn't do it because he claims he didn't know they did wrong. He keeps insisting that the bucks stops on his desk and then moves the desk so no one can find it.
He is the supposed 'leader' of his administration, the Democratic Party and this country. He leads nothing. He allow others to do things so that he can claim he has clean hands. He claims he has people on his staff that didn't tell him about the bad things others were doing, but they are still on his staff. Why?
He has weakened this country around the world, other countries don't trust any longer. That cannot be good for the future of this country.
He says he can and would create jobs, improve the middle class and has done neither.
Then his focus is just a bit more than off. UE has done nothing but increase on his watch, according to the stats they appear to be going down but only because they quit counting people that are now long term unemployed.
Playing games with the numbers won't create jobs and money flowing into the economy. Giving away taxpayer dollars to the UE won't stimulate the economy in healthy ways.
If his focus has 'always' been focused on jobs, then where are they? The government cannot create jobs, other than more government employees, it can only destroy jobs. I don't know if destroying jobs in his focus, but he has been very successful at doing so.
Benghazi, the IRS holding up legitimate request for status, Fast and Furious, political appointments while Congress is in session, selectively picking which, legitimate, Congressionally passed laws he doesn't like and won't enforce. He has pledged to support the Constitution and the laws of this country. He is not doing that.
Altering the ACA every time it appears that something might provide his political opponents an edge, regardless of the facts that he is again altering congressionally passed law by fiat.
I could go on, but you will simply ignore these points and make some foolish comment about his birth certificate. I don't care where he was born, only that he needs to be pushed out of office as soon as possible.
He has failed in the majority of his campaign promises, except the ACA and even that isn't working as designed or funded. He has weakened this country in foreign affairs. He has made this country look untrustworthy. He is not a leader.
Just to refresh your memory, I didn't ‘bribe’ anyone. The forwarding company we paid to get the paper work done on time paid and you seem to find little fault with the Mexican border official that asked for a took the bribe. The 'bribe wasn't to get anything illegal accomplished; just to get my approved work permit out of his desk drawer. This wasn’t a bribe; it was out and out extortion on the part of a Mexican paper pusher. I did nothing illegal. If you're going to complain, get your facts clear.
"You cannot use government resources for political reasons at all." Surely you jest. It is done on an almost daily basis is Washington and I am sure in many state governments as well. It just makes news when someone gets caught and even then those doing the dirty deed seldom suffer for it.
When you decide to get off your sanctimonious soapbox and actually look at what is actually going on in Washington, perhaps you can help us all save this country from this useless idiot.
His aides may have been wrong and stupid and so was Christie if he had anything to do with it, but there is nothing there that appears to be a jailable offense. If Obama and his AG can arbitrarily decide which laws they choose to enforce and don't go to jail or get impeached, they should have little to worry about.
Just more deflection. We can do it and it is OK because it is fair. If anyone else does it, it is a Tea Brain idea.
I am not a Tea Party member or supporter, I don't give to any Tea Party candidates. But I sure am glad that there are some out there that have the guts to ask the hard questions and to call you liberals to task for some of your Hair Brain ideas.
Not only are they not posting laws before they are voted on, the AG and the President aren't posting the list of laws they don't like and won't enforce. They get to pick and choose, the rest of us don't. Wonder what would happen if I ran a stop sign and told the cop I didn't think that law was fair to everyone and refused to pay the ticket? How long would it take to issue a warrant for my arrest? No where near as long as it takes the media to publish these law altering choices by Dear Leader and his boot polisher.
Yes, but stupid and/or illegal things done/said by our President and his staff are not good political distractions; things said and done by conservatives (which I don't consider Christie to be) make excellent fodder for the media to take attention away from all things liberal.
"Surprisingly weak jobs report puzzles economists"
It seem they are puzzled at every jobs report. Perhaps they are not the ones we should be listening to regarding employment reports. They are published and the revised every month. One might think that after a long enough period they could get it right the first time.
“Fight for your opinions, but do not believe that they contain the whole truth, or the only truth.” – Charles A. Dana
Again, if only Obama subscribed this a similar philosophy!
“Fairness means not to use fraud and trickery in the exchange of commodities and services and the exchange of feelings.” – Erich Fromm
And Obama is all for 'fairness? Really?
“Revenge is always the weak pleasure of a little and narrow mind.” – Decimus Junius Juvenal
It is so sad that the Democratic Party doesn't subscribe to this philosophy!
