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

I just read that American Automobile Companies can only stay competitive on the backs of the workers, with lower pay and benefits, which is a false narrative. In actuality, in Germany Auto companies pay their workers twice as much as American manufacturers, and produce twice as many cars. And Germany survived the global recession much easier than the rest of us uninformed saps.

Those abuses are real normanlake, just as the abuses in every power center in America. Period.

It is Americans that are not faring well. The clowns that run the circus are doing quite well. The aforementioned 'scandals' were a distraction, and the bickering clarified NOTHING. The IRS could very well be abolished, we do not need them, if they allow the Corporate control of what is supposed to be a tax exempt status for EXCLUSIVE non-profit use, and NOT for advancing a political agenda. STILL nothing on GOP interference with free market enterprise?

GOP is fast becoming a joke, I agree. They better pull themselves together.

The democrats aren't faring any better and they know it.

Tea Party, smaller government? Laugh clown laugh. The issue I brought up is just that, Government interference in Business. Tell me, 'freeman', how is that smaller?

You didn't hear anything from Schumer when the democratic counterparts put up hit ads on Mitt Romney.

Let's contrast the message:

TEA Party - Smaller government, sound money and fiscal responsibility.

Democrats - Mitt killed a woman, Mitt didn't pay taxes, Mitt dismantled companies....

All a person has to do is look critically at the messages.

Not one word from you 'free' persons about the latest hypocrisy by the GOP on 'free market' interference in a business going about it's business. WoW, MoM!

Knock Knock! Anybody there? The ACTUAL IRS 'scandal' is the substitution of the word 'exclusively' for the word 'primarily' in the code covering 501(c)(4) 'non-profit' organizations. NO political group should be allowed to spread partisan rhetoric thru tax exempt status at all. Period. This issue with the wailing of 'patriot' groups all irate over supposed IRS picking on them is ludicrous, at best. The issue is settled, except for the Substitution I mentioned.

Back to Schumer who, by the way, failed to mention that Harry Reid hasn't even brought to the floor of the senate any legislation coming from the house unless it's exactly what he wants.

Clean debt ceiling bill is a case in point. That passed the next day.

Dozens of other bills, dead.

So, democrats don't like TEA Party positions so SILENCE THEM. Don't argue them on merit, SILENCE THEM, KILL THE BILL, INVESTIGATE THE ORGANIZATIONS!!!

You guys are going off the deep end in a big way.

You might want to read the constitution jaxspp.

I think congress can walk an chew gum at the same time.

Your CLASSIC argument against any position is a flat EITHER / OR.

Ask to ease an environmental regulation and you holler "THEY WANT TO ELIMINATE THE EPA!!!..."

Give me a break. Checks and balances REQUIRE oversight and investigation. Good grief, good grief.

Hmmm. Democratic senators prodding IRS to step up the investigations on conservative groups.

You have to be kidding me Schumer,

"..Parroting Andrew Cuomo and Bill De Blasio, Schumer called the Conservatives and the Tea Party “extremists” and renewed calls for targeting against them to advance their statist agenda:

“It is clear that we will not pass anything legislatively as long as the House of Representatives is in Republican control, but there are many things that can be done administratively by the IRS and other government agencies — we must redouble those efforts immediately,” Schumer said.

The last time he insisted on this, the IRS targeted Conservatives, targeting which has gone unpunished. In fact, the IRS is planning to make it illegal for Tea Party Conservatives to ever get tax-exempt status.

In 2010 and again in 2012, Democrats told the IRS to investigate the Tea Party..."

Funny thing is the main purpose of Congress used to be to pass legislation. Obviously with the woeful record of the GOP House that purpose has gone by the wayside. Now Free feels the main purpose of Congress is investigations.

“For more than a year, we have watched Republicans desperately and obsessively search for a scandal, which has not appeared. It is time to move forward,” Rep. Adam Smith (Wash.), the committee’s senior Democrat, and Rep. Niki Tsongas (Mass.), the ranking Democrat on the committee’s oversight and investigations panel, said in a statement."

Yes, Free, because there is no in-between between getting rid of Congress and having perpetual GOP investigations. But thanks for laying out the GOP campaign plans.

Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi and lastly, Benghazi.

Sorry about 3 of your candidates biting the dust recently, Cruz, Paul, and Christie.

If you care to be informed, read the full article in the Nation magazine. Leadership from Germany and a good deal for the rapidly disappearing middle class.

So much for 'free market' Capitalism folks. Yes, the GOP, of the freedom of private business, is interfering in the FREE MARKET exercise between VW and it's workers to effect a deal to have the UAW represent the workers, a system that both the workers and VW agree on. Senator Bob Corker is even threatening action to make the whole event difficult. Come on you 'conservatives' you have some 'splaining to do. Spin it for us, and no meaningless rhetoric. Pathetic.
