I don't care one way or the other about this. Swinging at one in the dirt is what I think. What Michelle does and what PETA do is out of my wheelhouse. But... It is this type of fringe outfit that is now dictating policy for this country. The Keystone Pipeline has been set off again because Obama chooses to pander to that base of lunatics who actually believe the questionable science of climate change when there is enough evidence to suggest this is the way the earth rolls. And the idea of flooding the world oil market with cheaper oil and control places like Iran and Russia by dominating the oil market would simplify relations with them. Because they would be beholding to the US or their economies would take a drastic hit. Sorry, I got off on a tangent.
Stan - I believe you are dead wrong about choosing your sexual behavior. So just for an experiment, think about you crossing over to the other side for one minute only. Would it ever really be a choice for you? Then why would you assume it would be for them?
A debate, when you decide what is relevant and what is not, really isn't a debate at all. Personally, it isn't up to me to judge others since that was what the Bible preached. However, what Moses and Allah thought about it isn't relevant .
Here is why your flat tax will not work. Politicians. Even if you could get those crooked people to pass a law like this, they would have to carve out for the poor so they don't pay taxes. But further, once you take away the deductions and make it 10% - and be realistic, they will want 17% - then who will stop them from having a crisis and raising the percentage? You? Me? The American public who now has no real voice in the way the country is run? The real missed point about the tea party is we ALL have taxation without representation. That is the truth of today's society. But the only watchdog who was given Constitutional rights to protect the individual is selling oput to the left. The media now is one big opinion piece with a clear cut duty to promote the propaganda of the left. So flat tax...great in theory. Never happen.
Wasn't it Rand Paul who warned Texans there is a faction within the state to turn it blue? That was about eight weeks ago, perhaps.
I suspect this will go deeper if Cummings gets cornered. True The Vote was doing a statewide investigation in Texas, Congressional district by Congressional district to validate voter fraud or no voter fraud. Sheila Jackson Lee's district was found to have some interesting anomalies. True the Vote pulled records of all addresses with more than six registered voters in her district. Like so many districts checked.That seems a high amount, but can be justified by a four-plex with the same address, or some such. They found a great number that were suspiciously high - in the thousands - and did the eyeball test to see if this was a fact. Sheila Jackson Lee had more than any other Congressman. They found instances that were vacant lots and businesses. Obviously not all of them were questionable. But enough to be suspicious She (Jackson Lee) contacted Cummings. Is this the results? Pavlich ran the original article on this nearly a year ago. Maybe even longer. I think back to the shock and disgust the libs had during Watergate. And rightly so, since Nixon and company were breaking the law. But I look at this and understand. no matter whose rights were violated, this AG, Admin, and Party will do nothing to clean up its act. Why? Because in the Nixon days the press was still liberal and they tasted blood in the water. But today they will close ranks to protect the administration and party's now not only wholesale corruption, but the changing of laws to give the left advantages and crush any conservative on their way to socialism. This is nearing the end game for thew conservatives. At some point the libs will ask how this happened when the country is as black-hearted as Communism. One wonders if they will deny it it still.
We'll jump right on that the nano-second California stops this insane protection of bait fish over feeding humans, and gets its rising debt in order so it doesn't go the way of Greece. Your state can't even keep their water supply solvent. Maybe you should heal thine own house.
However, if you follow the trail, this all started as a request by Sheila Jackson Lee to Cummings because True the Vote was investigating her district here in Texas. Her district which had the most addresses with 6 or more registered voters per addresses than anyone else in Texas.
Pardon my apathy, but until I see this Congress actually put legal pressure on Lerner, and not hand this off to Holder who will do nothing, I am not believing anything said about her punishment. I believe she is guilty as sin. I also believe she is a microcosm of the arrogance of the left. An amazingly similar action as the rat fxxxing done when Nixon was in the White House. The hypocrisy of those who sanctimoniously used Nixon for years to pain all conservatives is truly amazing. If a poster was created to encompass that type of hubris, I'd imagine Hillary would be front and center. But no amount of sabre rattling by the indignant commissions looking into this, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, NSA and any other violations by the corrupt left will move me to think our elected officials have reined in the power hungry until I see real action. Boehner called Lerner out on national TV the other night. It sounded great. Now let's see you back that up, Mr. Speaker.
