Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region Regional Message Board
An interesting point of view on "the most open and transparent administration in US history."
"For the first four years everything was Bush's fault. Now everything is nobody's fault."
- US Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO)
Sad part is that Obama might be seen as a good President because he's a good politician.
I am not a fan of those that lie...
Here's a good example: http://slate.me/10uuoU8
I don't think so. Even the Democrats try not to talk about Carter. And Obama is making Carter look good.
Referring to my earlier comment Xyanth, most political analysts and book analysts say it is most likeely Ted Kennedy, basing it from his name Ed = Ted Kealty = Kennedy, and other attributes Kealty has. I for one am not entirely sure, and Clancy himself will probably never say.
And Obama is looking really bad in the eyes of the military, especially after this: http://www.caintv.com/memo-to-obama-holding-your-umb
51% of the American public still think Barack Obama is doing a good job.
Of course these are the people who tend not to know who the Vice President is (let alone where Bengazi is).
The left comes in two parts - and libertarians and conservatives tend to obsess about only one part (the vastly SMALLER part).
The part of the left we obsess about are the "intellectuals" - the academics and other such people who (like Francis Bacon and Plato - so many centuries before Karl Marx) dream of total power (themselves as the "planners of society" for the "good of the people").
But these terrible people (whilst very powerful - as they vast influence over both the education system and the media) are a small group.
The vast majority of the left are the other group - the ignorant mob.
The people who know very little (and care even less) - and who just want more "free stuff".
It is the MOB (not the tiny group of intellectuals on their own) that allow the left to win elections.
In the end the mob are like farm animals - rushing into the slaughter house, because the farmer (the "intellectual") is standing there with free food.
The quote from Senator Blunt is quite fitting. I'm proud to say I voted for him. I would've preferred a fresh conservative face, but the GOP establishment can sometimes be helpful in presenting a candidate who can defeat the opposing democrat when there's a lack of a more truly conservative candidate with significant fundraising ability in the primary.
So Lois Lerner took the fifth, picked up her lawyer and went home. I take it she didn't like the game.
That's ok. It is her absolute right not to incriminate herself. We are not to assume guilt from that. I'm good with that. I would not take that away from her no matter what the circumstances are.
However let us move from the prosecutorial roll to the employee/employer roll. Those congress critters demanding answers from her are the very same people that oversee that government operation. We are talking top of the food chain here.
If a federal employee is called to testify about their federal job before congress and has so thoroughly screwed the pooch that they feel the need to invoke the fifth amendment rather then discuss the matter, there is really no point in keeping anyone that fouled up so badly on the payroll anyway.
Here's a thought. How about a federal law that says the instant a federal employee invokes the fifth during the course of a congressional hearing they are out of a job, right then, right there on the spot. No pension, no severance, their pay and benefits stop on that day. Someone will meet them at the back door of their old office with their stuff all boxed up and the necessary paperwork.
They just put her on "administrative leave." therefore, she'll probably be heading on a nice ol' tax payer paid vacation.
Wish I could get on a paid vacation... errr... I mean administrative leave for a while.
