fairmon, good points. Visit the towns and suburbs surrounding D.C. in Maryland and Virginia. Dripping in wealth.
I lived on Connecticut avenue for over a year. The abundance of wealth and the money flowing around that area is mind boggling.
Las Vegas is like a church compared to the behavior around D.C.
Rep. Sander Levin said the term "progressives" was included on IRS screening lists of applicants for tax-exempt status made available to Congress.
Do you and the honorable congressmen not find it reprehensible that a list with such malice exist at all?
I personally don't think any organization whether conservative or liberal should have exemptions and a broad based cleaning up of the tax codes should include them. Why are churches and religious organizations exempt? Is that consistent with separation of church and state or not favoring any religion?
Does anyone wonder or know why Lerner refused to answer questions and plead the 5th to avoid incriminating herself? Anyone wonder why Holder rather be found in contempt than to provide requested information? I wonder why well paid IRS employees all received a nice bonus even if they owed delinquent income tax? Anyone wonder why the pay and benefits for government jobs are much higher than paid those in the private sector for like or similar work? Wonder why the only U.S. Lamborghini dealership is in Washington D.C.? It does a booming business along with Rolls Royce and other luxury cars in D.C.
There should be a fire engine with a huge cloud of smoke since where there is smoke there is usually real fire. Are republicans so shameless and politically motivated they are pacing things so the bomb shell some know is coming hits in November?
Grid lock must be good if things are looking up the way many say they are. Take away most of the expansion and spending latitude agencies have and it would get better still.
No doubt there is injury from an accident. A result of multiple incidents. The liability of the injured is significant.
In todays press conference Obama once again demonstrated his unique ability to talk at length and say nothing.
alprova said....There was a popular jobs bill that has been held up in the House for two years.
What was it and popular with who? number?
By the time he leaves office in another two and a half years, this nation will likely be humming along quite well, despite everything the Republicans have tried to do to prevent that.
Print and post that statement. I hope you are right but seriously doubt it. I have ask what meaningful thing has he wanted to do that he has not been able to because of the republicans? I am thinking you may be a heavy drinker of the spirits, for medicinal purposes of course.
My views on Obama doesn't mean I think GWB was a good president.
Clinton and Reagan are the only two I would give a good grade in recent history. It is hard to say how Kennedy would have done. I would give Obama a D- at best and be glad when he graduates and is no longer involved.
"He is always connected when on Air Fore 1 so no problem. Wait a minute, who is paying for a president's travel on Air Force 1 to raise funds for their party?"
If you were not so Obama sensitive you would see I am talking about both parties using the tax payer funded resources for campaigning. It should at a minimum be shown as a campaign contribution if not refunded by the recipient of the funds. In some cases it probably cost more than the funds raised. That is something that could be in place after Obama leaves office but you will never see incumbents in either party address the issue.
