My take-a-way from the IRS hearing is that it is mostly bogus. The IRS

had problems, Mr. Miller testified what they did about the problems, and fixed them. The Cincinnati IRS office asked IRS DC for regulation clarification, and waited for answers that didn't come for months and months.

In the meantime, the time-frame in which the Tea organizations 501(c)4 tax free status was being held up was also the time frame of IRS discovery, putting band aids on the process and making changes. Much of which has fallen through the cracks.

Mr. George, IRS Bush appointee said that he did not find any political agenda with IRS employees.

As I said earlier.....Citizens United was the monkey wrench, especially when non profits could apply.

My prediction re " The IRS Scandal". After all the blah blah blah, unturned stones,

dog and pony show of testimony....the last wet leaf in the pile of steaming compost turned over....and whoa la! Confused IRS workers thumbing through Citizen's United and IRS regs trying to figure out what to look for, how to process and whether to table the paper work or pass it on to the next department...

Remember where you heard it....

Woke up to a screaming Tweedy Matthews...quickly changed to the classical music channel.

Going to bed with Lawrence and waking up seeing Tweedy on the morning schmooze fest is a shock to my system....

Never has so much been blabbed with so little credibility.........speculation, analyzations, and predictions all trying to get out of one mouth......just yuck....

It does not matter that the community of DU knows the truth...what matters as the GOP

know..is perception....from the beginning of the first Obama presidency...up to this very moment the GOP took charge of perception...thus took charge.

They are the masters of distraction. They do not care nor give any weight to any media who write or talk about the lock step obstructionism of GOP. The GOP marches right through the weak Democratic blockades - McConnell blinks at words of criticism like they were dead fish wrapped up in yesterday's newspaper.

The GOP are relentless, do not care, and are winning the war of perception, maybe not inside of the liberal blogosphere..but they are winning.

Cleveland local TV covering remarks by Gina DeJesus' family..

so wonderful, so powerful so articulate....

A card-board cut out of Nancy Pelosi defeated Colbert-Bush? Benghazi?

The GOP starts brush fires and Democrats run helterskelter disorganized and fighting each other while tough talking Cristi gets l-band surgery in preparation to eat The Dem's lunch.

I"m depressed because on the ground, at the grassroots, we are fighting GOP at the state level while they chip away at what has been settled law/policies - women's rights union rights worker rights...

The Senate is a mess..why the hell doesn't some tough talking LBJ-like type corner Graham in a dark corner and wave the Aug 6, 2001 President's daily briefing memo titled "BIN LADEN DETERMINED TO ATTACK...." and tell him "you want a fight, let's fight"

I do not want DU rationale reason or intellectual dissertation blah blah blah about why this and why that. The why this and the why that is not working for me..

I think that the extreme GOP gerrymandering might come back to bite

some GOP Congress Critters in the ass.

The GOP Governors who presided over the 2010 re-districting may have unwittingly set the stage for inter-party fighting between the Tea's and the G's. It is what I call "self-cannibalizing".

Actually, it is happening now, I hear the crunching of the bones of old timey GOP reps as they are being eaten by the screaming, crazy Tea's.

All I care about is that he gets a fair trial.

This is after all, America, the greatest nation.

Law enforcement didn't take him down, because we are a just society,truth seekers.

Fall out from violence, has left me shaken.

I either have too much time on my hand, or just can't move on from the events of this week without trying to make sense of it all. I read about the NRA's activism and lobbying efforts to keep tracer (taggants) elements out of gun powder and bullets, etc. And wonder if the results of the gun lobby success has enabled those who would harm us.

So I wondered who actually funds the NRA so I went to their web page and read about the big groups that help fund the NRA. I wondered if foreign nationals give money, but so far haven't found anything.

But one little thing I did find, bothered me to no end. An essay contest for kids, on why the second amendment is important....good grief...



I'm sorry, but I do not understand the game of chess.

I do not understand the goal or desired outcomes of chess.

I gather, that during the run-up to the Affordable Care Act, lots of chess was played to get it to pass.

I do know that voters in 2009 and 2010 were confused by the chess game playing and in Nov. 2010 many voters stayed home and/or supported the Tea guys. And we know how that turned out don't we.....mass gerrymandering...2010 was a big win for GOP.

So from what I am trying to read here on DU, lots of chess is going on with Bone-er, budgets, SS, chained CPI, and goodness knows what else.

If this keeps up, and voters once again are subjected to more chess playing talk and then the whole Chained CPI gets taken over by the headlines and screaming TV Heads, then 2014 suddenly doesn't look too good for our side.

In fact, it's started already.
