Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

One final comment on crookedness. What is the number one reason people lie?

To cover up or attempt to divert attention away from other crooked behavior. A lie might also be concocted to cover up a previous lie.

It's that tangled web, which those who "practice to deceive", weave.

Bearing false witness about others is also crooked. Obama was "not being straight" when he blamed a video, and the man who made the video, for the murders in Benghazi.

"not being straight"

In other words, crooked.

Lying to the entire world at the UN podium about Benghazi is not crooked? Blaming Benghazi on a video and spontaneous demonstration is not crooked? Claiming Executive Privilege over papers Holder refuses to release to Congress on Benghazi is not crooked?

Not firing an Attorney General who's not only already been held in contempt of Congress once but may be in contempt again soon, is not crooked?

Either I have no idea what "crooked" means or someone else has a very narrow definition of it. So narrow it can't be seen with the naked eye.

Lying so consistently is crooked all by itself to me. No one in this paper has been able to mention a single phrase Obama used to sell his healthcare takeover law that was true. Not a single phrase. I've been asking for that phrase for about a year now.

Not crooked? Please.

And as I said before, in my long essay...when members of our side break the law, we turn our backs on those members. They instantly go from being "us" to being "them". We take them out our own selves in the midst of perma democrat hearings or not.

Your side circles the wagons around law-breakers, stonewalling and obfuscating on their behalf, until the last dog dies.

Why have there been no indictments etc. so far? For that very stated above reason. No answers, 5th amendment brandishing, feigned ignorance, and an Attorney General who won't cooperate with anything, other than his own lying tongue. You have people like Cummings proclaiming the IRS corruption, "solved".

People like Reagan, and even Bush, wouldn't and didn't put up with corruption in their administrations. Heads rolled. Not in this administration. Corruption in this administration gets you promoted. Corruption is what they love most...promotion, promotion, promotion...bonus, perks, promotion

I've never seen anyone leap to conclusions as you do Free. RS said this is a corrupt administration, but so far not one indictment or conviction. I was educating him on what a corrupt administration looks like. I just stated anyone who breaks the law should be prosecuted, some way you twisted that into me defending the administration.

So why, in good conscience, defend those doing bad things in this administration, if that is your aim?

At this point it is, in my opinion, gone way beyond politics and is wholly in the realm of what we, as citizens, should expect from our government.

normanlake is correct in his concerns about corruption. Power corrupts.

These, and past, scandals are the greatest argument for limited government that anyone could make. When nobody knows nothing about what their agencies are doing then we have a big problem. Today the targets are conservatives, tomorrow they are the libertarians or progressives.

The government cannot target any law abiding citizen or group for their political beliefs. That is, I'm sure you will agree, fundamental to the success of our republic. Fundamental.

Reagan: "I don't know."

There are 16 more.

Watt conceded that he had received $500,000 from clients who were granted very favorable housing contracts after he had intervened on their behalf. Watt was eventually sentenced to five years in prison and 500 hours of community service.

4. John Poindexter, Reagan's national security advisor, guilty of five criminal counts involving conspiracy to mislead Congress, obstructing congressional inquiries, lying to lawmakers, used "high national security" to mask deceit and wrong-doing...

5. Richard Secord pleaded guilty to a felony charge of lying to Congress over Iran-Contra. Appointed by William Casey to assist Oliver North.

Brief pop-in: Look up corruption in the dictionary, a picture of the Reagan Administration comes up. Here's some, wish the News gave us more than 100 characters: 1. Lyn Nofziger--White House Press Secretary - Convicted on charges of illegal lobbying of White House in Wedtech scandal. The lobbying would not have been illegal had he not been White House Press Secretary.

2. Michael Deaver, Reagan's Chief of Staff, received three years' probation and was fined one hundred thousand dollars after being convicted for lying to a congressional subcommittee and a federal grand jury about his lobbying activities after leaving the White House. Same as with Lyn Nofziger.

3. James Watt, Reagan's Secretary of the Interior was indicted on 41 felony counts for using connections at the Department of Housing and Urban Development to help his private clients seek federal funds for housing projects in Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Both he and his wife lost their law licenses too. Nobody at Columbia University remembers him, including professors. He's a ghost. His top advisor, V. Jarrett said they were going to "reward their friends and punish their enemies".

There's government corruption everywhere. They are following his lead, and the only thing he leads with is by multiplying himself through others...lies and corruption mitosis.

Must leave. Might be in beautiful Evansville IN week after next. Been there before, seems like there is a restaurant on every corner. So much food, so little time.

And innocent until proven guilty.

I think he is "truth challenged" but I don't think he is crooked. I could be wrong but time will reveal all.

How can one be as consistent a liar as Obama and not be crooked? He is a product of Crookedville, USA, aka Chicago. He was raised as a communist. An ends justifies the means kind of guy. An aid to the reestablishment of The Ottoman Empire. A cheater, a fraudster, a liar, a subjugator, and a country killer.

If he isn't crooked, no one is.

I challenge all of you to watch CSPAN and observe how dems and repubs hammer amendments that the other brings to the floor that they brought themselves just a short time ago.

A good idea should be a good idea no matter who brings it to the floor.

To be fair to the republicans they, typically, are blocking legislation that have "poison pills" worked into them. Dems do it in the Senate as well. An infrastructure bill should contain infrastructure items, not laws that pertain to abortion funding or right to life funding.

"I'm for the prosecution of any person who breaks a law." (Jaxpp)

Uh huh...Unless they're illegal immigrants, fraudulent voters, democrats, or union members.

I agree on the infrastructure, if we would have spent the trillions that we printed on infrastructure we would be FAR better off than where we are now.

People at the IRS broke the law, the commissioner knew about it, Lois knew about it, there are a dozen or so IRS tax lawyers that knew about it and the administration, (NOT THE PRESIDENT, you cannot go there yet), covered it up. If the president knew about it then he will have committed a far more egregious crime than Nixon ever did. I, personally, would not believe that President Obama is that kind of man. He is a lot of things but he is not crooked.

I know that you think this is not important but I would ask that you sit down and think about it very seriously.

We insult and go after each other quite frequently, (all in good fun on my part), but when it's all said and done I think we agree that the people are more important than the government.

There are specific principles outlined in the constitution that are not subject to a whole lot of debate and the IRS has disregarded those principles. Every American should be extremely upset about this.
