actually,

both Ron and I agree about this ONE particular stance of Ron Paul's

and that is that a LOT of our taxpayer money and our boy's lives are being wasted in Afghanistan

yesterday three more of our guys were killed in a road side bomb there

the only good thing is that President Obama and his military agree that we have decimated El Queda and killed a lot of their top guys and they agree to start pulling our combat troops out of there next year

at least our grounds troops are out of fuking Iraq, three trillion dollars and 3000 dead

Obama is pulling our troops out of the ME

Our other choice, McCain wanted to stay in Iraq Forever
and starting bombing Iran on day one

So what was the best choice Rong?

Bush didn't pardon Libby, he commuted his sentence, which is a different thing. The conviction stands and remains on his record. The parts of the sentence aside from the prison time remained (he paid something like 250k fine IIRC). This was the cause of some uproar from the VP's office (Libby was Chief of Staff to the VP, not an advisor to Bush), who expected Bush to grant an actual pardon.

we will NEVER effect true change in third world countries.. Weve failed at each and every attempt to bring modern democracy there. ( the guise of good). Weve not received cheap oil either. In an investment standpoint its been a fabulous loosing deal. In money and life.

My stance is the same as it has been for quite some time. WITHDRAW from the shytfest we help create. Rely on our OWN energy sources and furthering of alternatives. Take the billions of dollars given there and fix us here.
The "GLOBAL Power" crap is just that- epic failure- much like the UN.

agreed

BUT, if we voluntarily cut ourselves off from mid east oil it is also a fact that we do not produce enough oil in the USA to meet our demand for oil, such a supply interruption would very likely result in $10/gallon gasoline, wholesale inflation, and could well plunge our economy back into recession

and only for those reasons do I believe we still gotta keep buying the ME crude oil until maybe some day we can produce all we need right here, and we are a LONG way off

The Real scandal is that the IRS approved most of the Tea Baggar and right Wing political group tax exempt status
Including Karl Rove's group.

Even though that the 501c designation is to be used only for Social Welfare! And worded specifically to Not be used for political groups.

So in other words, my tax dollars are helping to subsidise Karl Rove and the Tea Baggars propagate lies and misinformation

There will be further investigations, and this Whole thing is now backfiring on the Brain Dead dolts that thought they could use this to make Obama look bad.

So rong found ONE Republican that's not wrong about our ME intervention
Congrats rong!!

too bad all the rest want more intervention, and voting for Republicans will just put more people in harms way

While almost all the Dems want less ME involvement, and Obama is pulling our troops out, does that matter to rong?

No, it doesn't matter, he will still vote against the Dems, even though they are the only ones that will make the fixes he desires. He can always complain when things get worse under his repubs, and blame it on the Dems, like always.

and by the way, Ron Paul has no power, and is hated by the Republican establishment.

That's what I heard
The IRS approved everyone of them, contrary to law
Well not all, 8 were denied

All told in 2012, some 2,774 groups of all types applied for 501(c)(4) status. Of those, 2,324 were approved, eight were denied, and 442 were held in limbo, neither approved nor denied. A number of conservative groups found themselves in this last category.

Approved, denied, and a 3rd group those the IRS chased away with their anal exam questionnaires. The biggest group.

Dr F,

correct me if I am wrong please

your statistics are the TOTAL number of applications versus denied for that status

again, the statistics do NOT differentiate between all the various applications, such as which were from progressive, conservative, churches, and many other applications for non profit status

in addition of the 8 denied we do not know which of the above groups they were

I get your point, but respectfully your are incorrectly reading into the statistics much more than they purport to say, and as a respected scientist well you know better!

Why be such an a-hole Coz
I thought you were better than that

I would argue with you, but you are too volatile, and I don't want my head shot off
at least rong won't come looking for me if I piss him off

anyway, me and ron are OK with each other, so why don't you pick on someone else

I work at a desk 50% of the time, and 50% of the time in the field
when at said desk, I can post here and do work at the same time,
since all I have to do is click from work to ST every so often, it's not hard

I locked my doors, hope this post doesn't get you too riled

and if you are laughing, maybe now you will know why we post here, it's pure laughs all day long
