House GOP slashes IRS enforcement budget, still demands IRS be infallable.

"The GOP-controlled House has slashed the budget for the Internal Revenue Service's tax enforcement division by $1.2 billion, a 25 percent cut that would mean fewer audits of taxpayers and make it more likely that people who cheat on their taxes will get away with it.

The House approved the cuts by voice vote after little debate Monday night as it took up a $21 billion spending bill that sets the IRS budget.

Released Honduran Charged With Murder

One more reason why we need comprehensive immigration reform? Ask the democrats' party, since they now OWN the issue, and will continue to do so for at least two more years.

Obama Conspires To Control Republicans From Attacking His Muslim Jihadist Brother

If ever there existed a scandal that dirtied up both Republicans and Democrats, it was Iran-Contra. In fact, it dirtied up both the Clintons and the Bushes. Both families – along with their respective parties – are so dirtied up that they dare not expose the President's brother. If you believe the extremely compelling tale of Terry Reed, an intelligence asset in the operation intended to circumvent Congress to provide weapons to the contras in Central America who were trying to defeat Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega, they're very dirty indeed.

Union loss translates into jobs victory

At least 2,000 unemployed Tennesseeans are glad the UAW got spanked a few months ago. They will now get jobs that could have gone to Mexico if the vote had gone the other way. http://www.newsday.com/classifieds/cars/volkswagen-to-invest-900b-to-exp... Congratulations Tennessee.

Open Letter To Kansas School Board

Open Letter To Kansas School Board
http://www.venganza.org/about/open-letter/

"I am writing you with much concern after having read of your hearing to decide whether the alternative theory of Intelligent Design should be taught along with the theory of Evolution. I think we can all agree that it is important for students to hear multiple viewpoints so they can choose for themselves the theory that makes the most sense to them. I am concerned, however, that students will only hear one theory of Intelligent Design.

Why history class is important. Rock star misrepresents history.

http://www.jpost.com/Arts-and-Culture/Music/WATCH-Pearl-Jams-Eddie-Vedde...

Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder goes on an anti-Israel rant. The problem is that his rant is counter to historical fact.

The scary thing is there is thousands of young people who lap up everything he says. I hope the Anti-defamation League does challenge what he says publicly.

This is why history class is important. What happened 50 and 100 years ago does affect today.

Abusing the rules gets you a timeout

Tagged:  

Of course everyone knows that, but the whiners, the explainers and the antagonists decide that two wrongs make a right instead of setting a good example, so now the main offenders have at least 24 hrs to reconsider their behavior. Further warnings will double that time and as investment bankers know, that can add up quickly. Seriously? Act like adults. Don't say you did not know because all of you have complained at one time or another. Any e-mails to me whining will go on deaf ears, so you can try it but it won't go anywhere. Feel free to resume normal discussion adults.

Creating an account to get around the timeout gets an automatic tripling of time for each account created and yes, I do know when this happens.

The Great Unknown: ObamaCare cost

Estimated cost $200 billion a year by 2020. Check it out: President Obama’s health care law has been delayed and changed so many times that the official budget scorekeepers can no longer keep track of what the law costs.

House Republicans Not Paying Their Dues

House Republicans, so worried that a swelling cash deficit will keep them from making big gains this November, have begun cracking down on dozens of lawmakers who haven’t paid dues crucial to the party’s campaign accounts. It’s reached the point that Speaker John Boehner has dispatched his own team to twist some of the stragglers’ arms.

Oh Look, Obamacare Enrollees Are Able To See Doctors

With ongoing questions about whether Obamacare enrollees will be able to use their coverage, a couple of new surveys suggest that the newly insured are generally able to get the care they need.

Anti-Obamacare Ads ACTUALLY INCREASED ENROLLMENT (Thanks, TeaTards!)

Brookings fellow Niam Yaraghi observed "a positive association between the anti-ACA spending and ACA enrollment." Spending on negative Obamacare ads has outpaced spending on positive ads 15 to 1, according to media research. In Senate races where Democrats are running for re-election, which have been the major targets for anti-Obamacare ads, Yaraghi detected a spike in enrollment.

"This implies that anti-ACA ads may unintentionally increase the public awareness about the existence of a governmentally subsidized service and its benefits for the uninsured," Yaraghi wrote of his findings.

State Tax Cuts Don't Trickle Down

But the dramatic tax cutting doesn't appear to have done nearly as much for job growth as promised.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says that Wisconsin ranked 35th of the 50 states in job growth during the first three years of Scott Walker's term, and dead last among its immediate neighbors, including, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan and Ohio.

Kansas hasn't fared much better. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the state's rate of job growth has lagged the national average since Brownback's tax cuts took effect.

Dumbass Conservatives Freak Out, Think Soccer Jersey is a "Muslim Prayer Rug"

Adding to unfounded worries that immigrant children attempting to enter the U.S. are reintroducing a panoply of diseases such as Ebola and dengue fever, conservatives grew more agitated yesterday after “American security contractors” found what they believed to be a “Muslim prayer rug” abandoned near the Arizona border.

According to Adam Weinstein at Gawker, the “rug” is actually a diamond-patterned Adidas soccer jersey.

Teabag Prince Alex Jones Calls Michelle Obama "First Tranny"

“These people are the authors of such tyranny that they shouldn’t whine and complain when the public doesn’t believe anything they’re saying — especially when every time I look at ‘Michelle’ or ‘Michael’ Obama, the First Lady, or First Tranny, something doesn’t look right.”

“She doesn’t look like any black woman I’ve ever known,” Jones said. “She’s got shoulders that are wider than a man’s, which physiologically doesn’t happen. You can put three heads on a man’s shoulders, and two heads on a woman’s shoulders — that’s a known anatomy.”
