Leon ... I am very very happy to hear that you turned down all raises during your working years. After all your " contract "didn't call for a raise so you earned the same thing the last day you worked as you did the first day.
Since you have such a hatred of people getting raises I'm sure you refused any that were ever offered and you NEVER NEVER NEVER asked for a raise or thought you deserved one.6 hours ago
Well, onerebel, let's take an HONEST look at a couple of those " scandals " shall we?
The IRS scandal?
It was a REPUBLICAN who authorized and initiated the investigation of right wing " non-profits " --- not Obama.
The Benghazi(sp) scandal? It came to light Thursday that the Republican operatives had EDITED the White House emails they showed to the public so that they said something much different than the ACTUAL emails said.
Once again, Republicans get caught in their dirty tricks.
How do you explain away the tampering with the White House emails by Repubican operatives?
Oh ... what's that you say?
You don't care ... anything to get Obama is justified?
So blaming the investigations started and authorized by a Republican on Obama and tampering with White House emails altering what they really said --- that's all just fine with you.6 hours ago
Mr. Scarp, when someone registers to vote using the Federal voter registration form, it is ILLEGAL to ask for proof of citizenship.
We have to take their word for it. All they have to do is sign the box on the paper and from then on no one can question their citizenship in regard to voting.
When that voter goes to the polls, no one can question his citizenship as long as the I.D. he presents matches the address and name on the voter rolls.
Can you tell us, please, how anyone is supposed to catch illegal voters when it is ILLEGAL to ask for proof of their citizenship?
Once they register there is no legal way to catch them.11 hours ago
Hmmm, why couldn't they come up with a good replacement for " indivisible"?
Here is the latest version of the Pledge of Allegiance --- Republican style:
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under Greed, indivisible, with bribes and fame for me."Yesterday
valleynative: from DAJ's attitude it is obvious that discussing anything with him is a waste of time.
He is very likely an invading alien himself.
He is definitely a racist ... but then many hispanics are.
That's right Accuracy ... but no amount of spinning will make the FACT that it was a REPUBLICAN official who authorized the investigation of REPUBLICAN " non-profits ".
THAT FACT WILL NOT CHANGE no matter how much conservatives moan and whine and blame Obama.
Onerebel said: " Nobody could possibly be stupid enough to believe Republican's targeted fellow Republican's to help numb nutts Obama win reelection "
Nobody knows why a REPUBLICAN official authorized the investigation of REPUBLICAN " non-profits ".
I doubt very much that he was interested in helping Obama.
But it may be that he was that rare bird -- an honest Republican politician -- and did it because evidence came to him that they were CHEATING so he authorized the investigation.
But, as far as I know, no one has asked that REPUBLICAN official why he authorized the investigation.

ooops ... < blush > now it's MY turn to be WRONG :(
I mistakenly addressed my last post to VofReason but it was Accuracy ( boy what a misnomer ) who accused me of wanting the U.S. to buy OPEC oil.
Sorry VofReason.2 days ago
mnjcpa said " Give entrepreneurs the opportunity - without growth choking regulations - "
And there ya go again. Another appeal for laissez faire capitalism.
NO REGULATIONS --- NO RESTRICTIONS let the robber barons play.
Lack of " growth choking regulations " is EXACTLY what caused the financial meltdown on Wall Street and the housing bubble that caused this last Recession / Depression.
And you want MORE OF THE SAME.
You can imagine my reply to you.2 days ago
VofReason you spewed forth this garbage: " Arizona Willie’s is obviously for Obama’s goal – which is to transfer more and more of the wealth out of this country through buying OPEC oil.
And he is not for shipment of Alaska oil and North Dakota oil to any country. "
You could hardly be more WRONG.
I am all for banning the export of our precious oil and using it FOR AMERICANS.
Everyone complains about the price of gasoline, but if we banned the export of our oil then the price would drop back to 50 cents a gallon because the oil companies would have oil coming out their ears.
Why are we importing oil from the Middle East while at the same time exporting our own oil?
That doesn't make sense but that is what we are doing.
Probably because they can get more on the world market for our oil than Middle East oil sells for.
But you are COMPLETELY WRONG when you claim I want us to buy OPEC oil. I've no idea how you can draw that conclusion.
Oh yeah ... that's right ... you're a right winger and logic isn't something you are familiar with.2 days ago
