It is unfortunate that the government doesn't feel it should have to get warrants, or as we now know, lie to spy on "we the people", Although the Patriot Act was developed after September 11, 2001, it was renewed just a year or two ago. If the Justice Department Inspector General found violations in the FBI's use, the Judge should have admonished the agency and denied the demand made on Google.
We should be demanding that ALL emails between the White House, State Department, CIA and Justice be released. Those men who died and others who were injured because of politics DESERVE to know why their lives were not protected when extra security had been asked for. And as someone who watched the hearings on C-Span, the budget or sequestration was NOT A FACTOR ACCORDING TO CHARLENE LAMB, who still hasn't been fired, no one has been fired.
The caption on this story is wrong, it's not only Republicans that aren't satisfied, it's EVERYBODY! Putting a White House Insider in charge and NOT firing and filing criminal charges against those involved should not make any taxpayer feel secure. Now one of the main characters in this, Sarah Ingram was put in charge of the new IRS division to oversee the Health Care Division, and unless "we the people" step up and get rid of the IRS having access to our medical records, this type of activity will continue. The president wouldn't even answer a very simple question at the press conference yesterday, "Did anyone at the White House know about this?" He tried to deflect the answer by saying he didn't know about the Inspector General's Report, that wasn't the question. His staff did come out and say they knew about the investigation, if his staff knew, why wasn't he told? Are they incompetent? Sorry but his answer said it all and the notion that he's still supporting "I don't know" Eric Holder instead of appointing a Special Prosecutor shows he's not interested in protecting the taxpayers personal information if they don't agree with his agenda. As for Benghazi, why didn't he produce the emails for Sept. 11, 2012 through Sept. 13th and after the 16th to present?
We support local businesses as much as possible, however, there are some things that if you bought locally the cost would be a lot more than finding it online. Leave the internet purchases alone, don't tax those purchases.
I have no problem showing my birth certificate, I do however have a problem with DOR or any agency SCANNING to put in a database. Isn't it interesting that those who support the scanning and database appear to be the same ones that do not want a voter photo ID.
Here's a great idea, send the money back to the people.
Why is a family of 4 with an income of over $94,000 receiving this? Thanks to the new Health Care law, which is not affordable, our co-pay has more than doubled, our rates have increased nearly 60%, these plans are NOT FREE.
I'm all for showing proof of citizenship, however, NO ONE should be copying your birth certificate when you get your license and Missouri should not be sending any information to other states for processing nor to the Federal Government.
I personally don't mind if "work visa's" are given to those who come here illegally, however, there should be NO PATH TO CITIZENSHIP unless they go back to their own countries and go through the LEGAL process and get in the back of the line. One more thing, the "Immigration Reform" that they all talk about is very simple...ENFORCE CURRENT LAW. Labor Unions and Business leaders should not be making deals with members of Congress. Why do we vote for people who are supposed to follow the Constitution and Bill of Rights if they can't do the job they were hired to do? Didn't they take an oath?
Those in the Palestinian Authority and Hamas do not want, nor will ever want peace in the region and why we continue to send over $500 BILLION DOLLARS to them is still beyond me, it has never done anything but support terrorists and their propoganda starting at birth. For the President to meet with Abbas and say something negative about the settlements does nothing but promote their agenda and will be another source used for propoganda purposes. He needs to stop wasting our taxdollars traveling all over for his continuous campaign speeches giving our money away to all these countries.
