Re: Lois Lerner strikes again!

My employer monitors all my email (incoming and outgoing) for innappropriate content. It is very easy for me to simply pick up the phone if I want to discuss something I don't wish to put in email or that might otherwise set off a red flag. My [more]

Re: Lois Lerner strikes again!

One could agree with you if not for the fact that, instead of simply recommending her staff be careful about their email, she looked for ways to circumvent tracking and documenting of conversations. ... And you don't think such is suspicious? This [more]

Re: Protect Net Neutrality

Actually, isn't that the point of net neutrality? To prevent ISPs from charging content providers to carry their content?

Not trying to be argumentative, just trying to understand. I'm not particularly well steeped in this issue.

Re: For-Profit Health Insurer Denies Coverage

Can you honest imagine such a law ever getting passed?

Well, yes, but I don't have to imagine it. Similar laws have been on the books for years.

Re: Lois Lerner strikes again!

Why would this be necessary if none of the kind was at all happening already?

I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by this. But clearly the IG was investigating SOMETHING that happened. And, whether or not they had anything to hide, [more]

Re: Protect Net Neutrality

Whether they realize it Net Neutrality will force many people to remove their web sites due to costs of keeping it there.

Genuinely curious: Why do you think this is so?

Re: What Hobby Lobby Hath Wrought

Mr. Wear, who calls himself an “ardent supporter” of the president and a backer of gay rights, said in an interview on Tuesday that the rationale of the organizations was to maintain the rights they have. “We’re not trying to support crazy [more]

Re: For-Profit Health Insurer Denies Coverage

What happens when the government is your insurance company? Who's the advocate for you? ... And we've seen many people being refused treatment already under Obamacare.

Re: Lois Lerner strikes again!

I don't think this email is as significant as many are attempting to make it out to be. This email was written in April 2013, 10 months after Congress had requested that the Inspector General investigate, and right around the time that the Inspector [more]

Re: IRS proves Lerner's email are fine

It's now proven that Lerner told her foot soldiers not to write anything incriminating in email and to use the IM system which wouldn't be saved.

Re: Coming Your Way Soon

Typical conservative logic. Attack the government for allegedly not providing good enough healthcare to illegal aliens while simultaneously opposing the provision of government services (like healthcare) to illegal aliens. Sheesh, make up your mind [more]

Re: Supreme Revelation

Hobby Lobby could claim its primary purpose is to further religious expression, just like I could claim that I'm an Olympic-caliber shot-putter - but the claim would never pass evidentiary muster. Hobby Lobby's primary purpose is the retail sales [more]
