    Waiting for President Obama to talk about the greed of the corporatists and mandate distribution of excess profits to pave the gravel parking lots in town. Or the video of the lady looking for her ObamaPark that can get paid for out of Obama’s stash.

    ” …who ran but then dropped a 2012 bid for a seat in Congress,…”

    Any surprise he ran as a Democrat?

    Coming soon to a healthcare station near you … the Obamacare panel member transporting patients to the side of the road and throwing them into the ravine.

    Black study professor … with an attitude (like most of those who study or teach black studies).

    I’m confused. WTF does the IRS paying a $50,000 fine really mean?
    – the fine comes out of their budget
    – their budget comes out of gov revenues
    – the gov revenues come from us taxpayers
    Aren’t we the ones actually paying this?

    Democrats: Creators of programs that cause unintended consequences which can only be solved by throwing more money at the programs that caused them.

    Ryan nailed it. The IRS has unfettered power and will squash an unruly taxpayer (defined by them as even someone who is missing a receipt) like a bug. They have no tolerance for simple mistakes; why should we have any tolerance for a colossal blunder (if, in fact, it is a blunder) like this? If a taxpayer provided a similar explanation for a problem he or she encountered, I am certain the IRS’ response would be something on the line of “astonishing” or “incredible” or “strains credulity”.

    Even if you take their ludicrous story of the computer crash at face value, what is their explanation for not having the most basic of safeguards in the way of system backups? Who is the “Deep Throat” in the IRS who is going to blow this wide open?

    Already got the letter from Randi Weingarten of the AFT assailing the court’s decision. It looks like the same old arguments will be used to attack this decision. The letter included zero commentary addressing the issues the litigants raised (like the year of “lost opportunity”).

    I would copy the entire letter here, but it’s too long. However, here are a few snippets:

    “By attacking the rules that protect and support teachers, the Vergara decision destabilizes public education.”

    “Make no mistake: Last Tuesday was a sad day for public education.”

    “This will not be the last word. As this case makes it through an appeal, we will do what we’ve done in state after state. We will work with parents and communities to fight for safe and welcoming neighborhood public schools that value both kids and the women and men who work with them. No wealthy benefactor with an extreme agenda will detour us from our path to reclaim the promise of public education.”

    “In unity,

    Randi Weingarten, American Federation of Teachers
    Joshua Pechthalt, California Federation of Teachers”

    I would suggest a review of the meetings log between the Dems and the head of the US Patent office. Probably some threats of losing funding if certain behavior was not forthcoming.

    I like Ankle Grabbers … then Harry Reid could be the team mascot.

    The sad part about this is that if a private organization exhibited even a fraction of this behavior, some government agency would be on their butts faster than Al Sharpton muffs reading his teleprompter.

    They’ve already stacked the deck against the citizen; can’t wait to see the next step — charging a service fee for disposing of your assets.

    Tolerance is contextual — just ask the lefties who define tolerance as whatever they say it is.

    And it is these people who “deserve” an increase in the minimum wage?

    Details, schmetails … what difference does it make!!??

    “Sen. Coleman Young II, D-Detroit, said the bills would keep the city ‘under the rule of unelected cronies for Lord knows how long.’”

    Unlike the elected cronies, like your Daddy, who drove this city into dire straits?

    Unfortunately, Sen. Coleman Young II and his ilk can’t accept the fact that their policies have caused many of the problems that Detroit is in. Why accept responsibility? Let’s just double down!

    The White House petition site is one of the biggest frauds around.

    First off, its home page contains the following set of BS:
    “My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and efffectiveness [sic] in government.”
    — President Barack Obama

    Second, it prominently displays petition responses related to the progressive causes for which the administration is looking for support. At the time of my commenting the following petitions were “featured”:
    1. A Message from President Obama about Your Petition on Reducing Gun Violence
    2. Combatting Online Piracy while Protecting an Open and Innovative Internet
    3. Building a 21st Century Immigration System
    4. Repealing the Discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act

    They will get to this one when it is convenient or politically expedient to do so. Maybe after they realize the Bowe Bergdahl “prisoner” swap has not been received with open arms they will look for another next PR opportunity.

    Wow, just wow.

    Don’t judge me on my results, judge me on my intents and actions (e.g., the citing of engagement with Iran as an accomplishment).

    Another example of no accountability politics.

    He pointedly called Abbas a “man of peace.”

    Yes, and President Bush looked into Putin’s eyes and saw his soul.
