 Let's retell history One More Time!!!

or.... Echo Chamber of Idiocy

How about the do nothing congress that is currenty controlled by repubidorks?

Why are there no Republicans calling out these corporations that are doing all the tax evasion?
Is it strictly because republicans are so far up the corporate booty that it will require a complete shaming of the political party

 Bigtime companies are moving their “headquarters” overseas to dodge billions in taxes … that means the rest of us pay their share.

Ah, July! What a great month for those of us who celebrate American exceptionalism. There’s the lead-up to the Fourth, countrywide Independence Day celebrations including my town’s local Revolutionary War reenactment and fireworks, the enjoyable days of high summer, and, for the fortunate, the prospect of some time at the beach.

Sorry, but this year, July isn’t going to work for me. That’s because of a new kind of American corporate exceptionalism: companies that have decided to desert our country to avoid paying taxes but expect to keep receiving the full array of benefits that being American confers, and that everyone else is paying for.

Yes, leaving the country–a process that tax techies call inversion–is perfectly legal. A company does this by reincorporating in a place like Ireland, where the corporate tax rate is 12.5%, compared with 35% in the U.S. Inversion also makes it easier to divert what would normally be U.S. earnings to foreign, lower-tax locales. But being legal isn’t the same as being right. If a few companies invert, it’s irritating but no big deal for our society. But mass inversion is a whole other thing, and that’s where we’re heading.

Check it out repubs..... think about your position on this corporate personhood shite..... you fools are fools

What is up with the republicans? This is one of their leaders? She certainly thinks that she's really important... and she has strung together more words than before.... but still they are the same.

How f*#king sickly is the republican party....?

If this is considered favorable representation... you can keep this crazy woman whipping herself into a froth over some ignorant sh#t....

I'll stay with the ones who have convinced me that they are using their brains....

Possibly the best commentary on the subject of Sarah Palin was done by a guy named Seth..

While I like to bash Repugs with my morning coffee, in the interests of keeping the political stuff to one thread.......what the hell is up with the CIA??


I don't see how Brennan doesn't end up resigning, and CIA staff doesn't go to jail.

What are those guys thinking? Domestic spying on CONGRESS??

Do we need a law that makes it a clear felony with loss of pension and health benefits?

It’s not just two senators that the C.I.A. has offended by this shocking action. It is all of Congress and, by extension, the American public, which is paying for an intelligence agency that does not seem to understand the most fundamental concept of separation of powers. That concept means that Congress is supposed to oversee the intelligence community and rein in its excesses. It cannot possibly do so effectively if it is being spied on by the spy agency, which is supposed to be directing its efforts against foreign terrorists and other threats to national security.

I was rather shocked as well, Ken. Maybe they were using it as training to spy on other "friendly" governments.

It is, of course, possible that this administration has some difficulty with the concept of separation of powers, too.

Whatever might you mean about the administration, John?

As has probably always been true, no administration ever attains complete control of the bureaucracy.

Obama no more controlled Snowden, than Nixon controlled Ellsburg. The CIA director is probably kept in the dark about a lot of things in the CIA.

^^^^^ Aside from a clear cause and effect thing what exactly was that post supposed to be there? ^^^^^
(so you were one of the first 5202 to "share" this site.... That's a world wide website with I have no idea how many eyeballs on it and still only 5202 have felt the need to share this story..... Conservatively, there are possibly 2 billion eyeballs on this website and only 5202 felt compelled to share....)

Excuse me, I need to get back to the outer edge of middle of the road...

carry on...

Years later, over 100000k posts and no one can say what good has the republican party done for the average American.

Thank you Bob!!!!

Reality check is needed every once in a while... And I too have not read a single story about a republican doing anything good for the common good... nor for a good humanitarian reason..

The clincher with the CIA thing was months ago with Diane Feinstein took to the floor and harshly scolded the CIA for their behavior. She has covered for the CIA for all kinds of terrible crap over the last decade (or longer) and for them to have lost her on this was a tell of how bad it was. I'm pretty sure I posted an article about that to this thread when it happened.

yet more reason the repub is so wrong about everything

Wow.... Look at that....

Why are republicans wrong about everything has been picked up by another media source...

California - Though California may not be the absolute best place to live for everyone.... California is pretty damn good at sh#t...

Gov. Jerry Brown signs California budget after smooth process

Jerry Brown signs budget; California government 'actually working'

(Not that the LA Times is the paper of record or anything....I mean this could all be a big lie the LA Times is pulling over the publics eyes...)

And then there is the right wing echo chamber... fox news... breightbarft with sarah pallin...

Not sure which one to choose here for my source.... I'll let you all decide..

There are even more reasons to not elect republicans to any local or state or federal office.... they fail!!!!!

They get elected to office... things get worse for the people in the area....

End of day edit: These repukes thinking that they can get my vote by over regulating my weed bill offered in congress... What a shame you republicans make yourselves out to be when you make these meaningless/token/overly regulated medical cannabis bill....

Repubs are just not in touch... not even with themselves (did anyone notice how specific the amount of THC will be legal with this bill? And the repubs say they don't like regulations.. f*#king hypocrites

So, even when a republican tries to show the country that they are humans too and are looking out for humans, they go and regulate the hell out of the so called "freedom" they claim to be offering to change for us....

Yes, jingy, you are making too much sense. Try tuning into the right wing wackosphere and dumbing it down.
