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

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.

I'm for the prosecution of any person who breaks a law.

Since very few conservative economic predictions ever come to fruition I'm not going to worry about it. One thing that is damaging the economy is the Republican refusal to invest any money in infrastructure. But Republicans are odd, Cut to grow, peace through war, etc.

RS, many conservatives have been appointed to the SC only to have their eyes opened when they got there, Earl Warren probably the most prominent.

Why no howling from you guys that the police can take a DNA sample from you, even if you're stopped for a burned out taillight?

All you have to do jaxspp is answer a couple of questions.

1. Is it acceptable that NAACP donors were targeted by federal agencies, (IRS and FBI), in the 1950's and 1960's?

2. Was the law enacted that made the releasing of that information a felony correct?

3. Does a conservative minded person have the right to participate at the same level as a progressive minded person.

4. Does the federal government have the right to determine what is acceptable speech and what is not.

Some judges are constructionist and some are "living document" adherents.

I doubt, jaxspp, that any of them are going to side with the IRS,,,,

correction: some judges "adhere" to it.

Now that QE is over we will see inflation eat away at any wage and earnings increases that the middle class might enjoy. Pile on top of that the stark reality that many employers are moving to a part time work force to avoid Obamacare liabilities and you have a recipe for disaster.
