Dear Mr. Holder, If you don't want the documents released, mosey on over to the IRS and let them show you how to destroy documents, shred hard drives (that automagically fail), delete emails and delete backups. There are a lot of experts at obstructing justice at the IRS.
If I'm a white male, but have no Irish in my ancestry, do I still have to feel guilty about all this?
Obama only has about 2 years left. So if they can manage not to put troops on the ground for that little bit of time, Obama will have kept his ultimatum. Of course if the situation deteriorates immensely during that time, troops just might be necessary. But it's been setup so it won't happen on Obama's watch. Interesting since it was Obama pulling the troops out of Iraq before military leaders advised that resulted in ISIS. I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we’re ready would be dangerous, for Iraq, for the region, and for the United States. It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaeda. It would mean that we would be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It would mean we would allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.” - George Bush, 2007
"...your Second Amendment rights..." There are no "Second Amendment rights". The Second Amendment does not grant any rights. It is a prohibition on government. The right to self defense is an inalienable human right that existed before there was a Constitution. A cave man had a right to take arms, be that a rock or club, and exercise his human right to self defense against unjustified assault. The Framers understood this and wrote the Amendment to prevent Americans from being denied their human rights. It should be 'right protected by the Second Amendment', or more accurately, 'human right protected by the Second Amendment'.

According to some rap lyrics, I think so.
Part of the funding, or resources, for schools is teachers salaries. Unions have nothing to do with that, e.g. like keeping grotesquely inadequate teachers in place making good salaries because they have "tenure"?
I was in the top 39 of my graduating class. So was everyone that graduated, because that's all that graduated from the little poor, under-funded country school I attended. I have two college degrees, one in geophysics. My high school was so bad I didn't have the math back ground required to make a decent score on the SAT or ACT. I had to go to a junior college to build up my math background before I could get into the basic math, physic and geophysics classes required for a geophysics degree. I'm sitting here scratching my head trying to figure out how the high school I attended had anything to do with my later success or failure. The answer is simple though, the teachers put a strong emphasis on learning and earning good grades. And no one ever condemned me for "acting white".

"This has, among other things, been used to equate sexual behavior to race." To make this sentence more accurate: This has, among other things, been used to equate sexual 'preference' to race. Race is biological and the majority of scientific evidence strongly suggest sexual preference is biological. So...
Lighten up on Biden will you. The guy suffered a brain injury years ago. Established medical fact that Biden is brain damaged. Of course, lay people can easily discern this just from listening to his irrational, illogical BS.
This is a very old scam. It's been going on for decades in Europe. Immigrant arrives on student or work visa and when the visa expires and it's time for them to go home they're no where to be found. They have disappeared into the underground labor market. What makes it easy for them is that the government has allowed them, via visas, to live in the country legally for a few years while they learn everything they need to know to live in the country illegally. Of course, if the government would crack down on those who employ illegals... Well, we know that's not going to happen because all of our politicians are in the back pocket of business and U.S. Chamber of Commerce members.
Those in power set a precedent thousands of years ago. Anytime money exchanges hands, for some reason the government thinks its deserves some of it. The internet WILL eventually be taxes. It's just a matter of time.
