Don't Blame the IRS....they just don't like us

Remember when we had a responsive government....yeah me neither.

IRS ignoring 60 percent of taxpayers’ calls as deadline looms
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Tuesday that service at his agency has gotten so bad that they are ignoring more than 60 percent of taxpayers’ phone calls during this tax season.
Speaking at the National Press Club, Mr. Koskinen pleaded with more money, saying a budget boost would help them staff their overwhelmed customer service lines. He also said it would help reverse staffing cuts in their compliance division, where he said the government will lose $2 billion this year in money it would otherwise have been able to collect if it had better staffing.
Congress has cut or held the agency’s funding static for several years now, with lawmakers deeming the agency recalcitrant in solving problems, and unrepentant for having targeted tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny.~snip~
Need I remind everyone what happens if we ignore the IRS?
Unless you're a race pimp and Obama is our BFF.

Now it's Two Times the Hysteria

You do realize of course that for the liberal MSM there will be no further events in the world until the Arkansas and Indiana legislatures buckle under to their demands.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Despite intensifying criticism from business leaders both within and outside of Arkansas, the state legislature on Tuesday passed its version of a measure billed as a religious freedom law, joining Indiana in a swirl of controversy that shows little sign of calming.
The Arkansas bill, passed when the General Assembly concurred on three amendments from the State Senate, now goes to the state’s Republican governor, Asa Hutchinson, who expressed reservations about an earlier bill but more recently said he would sign the measure if it “reaches my desk in similar form as to what has been passed in 20 other states.” The Arkansas Senate passed the measure last week.
While there were several attempts up until the last minute to add a clause to the bill that would explicitly bar discrimination of gays and lesbians, a measure that Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana pledged to push through his Legislature, the sponsors of the bill in the Arkansas General Assembly rejected such moves.
”If you start shaving out exemptions in laws, next thing you know, you’ll gut the law because everyone will want an exemption,” said State Senator Bart Hester, an Arkansas Republican and one of the bill’s lead supporters.
The attention turns to Governor Hutchinson, a moderate Republican who ran on a jobs platform and managed to extend a tailored form of Medicaid expansion in this Republican-controlled state. One of the state’s biggest employers, Walmart, called on the governor to veto the bill.~snip~
 Scandal after scandal with this administration and there's crickets from the liberal media yet when states reassert the 1st amendment they go bugshit.

Where the MSM Stands

It truly is exhausting to have to constantly point out the deliberate deflection of the news by the liberal media.
Here we have a story of a presidential contender possibly committing multiple felonies and the media focuses on the state of Indiana that BTW elected a republican as governor.

Nets Devote 3x More Time to Indiana Law Than Hillary E-Mail Server Wipe
The stunning revelation that Hillary Clinton wiped her personal e-mail server clean is the kind of political cover-up that should have sent the networks into overdrive, except they had an even more important agenda to advance: smearing an entire state and its Republican governor as anti-gay bigots.  From the morning of March 27 through March 30 evening the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks spent only 10 minutes and 15 seconds to the admission by Clinton’s own attorney that her State Department e-mails were wiped from the server that had been subpoenaed by Congress, but they devoted a whopping 35 minutes and 1 seconds to coverage of the Indiana religious freedom law.~snip~
The media want's to ensure that very few remember Hillary's emails.
I've always enjoyed fiction which is why I still watch the evening news, a habit I acquired back in the days when there were only 3 channels on TV and no net so I've seen first hand how the alphabet channels have changed.
They've become even more biased, the propaganda arm of the democrat party.

Rebooting My Blog

I started this blog thinking, like most people, I would have something insightful and meaningful to say about politics.
But all I really have are my opinions on what is going on in my country. I also have over 60 years of experience in this country. Growing up,serving in the military, raising a family and then being alone for the past year or so.
I'm still going to rant about politics and the weasel political parties we're stuck with but I'm also going to write about the movies I see,the books I read, the music I listen to and try to play and sometimes just the weather.
Maybe the few odds and ends to.
They say content is everything when blogging and I intend on throwing some out there.

Hope it'll be interesting for you and worth paying me a visit from time to time.

Snyderman Quits NBC Under the Radar

Here's a little something that the commie MSM will down play because, you know, she's one of theirs.

Nancy Snyderman Will Leave NBC News In Wake of Ebola Incident
Dr. Nancy Snyderman, the veteran TV-news medical correspondent who was caught violating the terms of a self-imposed quarantine after being potentially exposed to the Ebola virus last year,  said she would step down from her job at NBC News.
“Covering the Ebola epidemic last fall in Liberia, and then becoming part of the story upon my return to the U.S., contributed to my decision that now is the time to return to academic medicine,” Snyderman said in a statement provided by NBC News.
Snyderman, NBC News’ chief medical correspondent, has been back on the air since December. She took a break from NBC News after she was spotted in New Jersey in October violating the terms of a self-imposed quarantine, a precaution she and other staffers took after an NBC News freelance cameraman contracting the disease while Snyderman and a team were covering its outbreak in Liberia.~snip~
Not that Dr. Nancy has that big an impact on much of anything but she is a minor example of the smug elitists that infest the liberal media

Government vs. Us

As if we don't have enough examples of the Obama administration and their liberal/commie infiltrators contempt for the citizens of this country.

VA manager’s email mocks veteran suicides
A manager at the Roudebush Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Indianapolis appears to mock the mental health problems of returning combat veterans in an email to her employees. 
The email obtained by The Indianapolis Star contains photographs of a toy Christmas elf posing as a patient in what appears to be the hospital’s transitional clinic for returning veterans. In one photograph, the elf pleads for Xanax. In another, he hangs himself with an electrical cord. 
The woman who sent the email is Robin Paul, a licensed social worker who manages the hospital’s Seamless Transition Integrated Care Clinic. The clinic provides returning veterans with transition assistance, including mental health and readjustment services. 
When initially asked about the email, Paul responded, “Oh my goodness.” She then referred a reporter to the hospital’s public affairs department, which emailed The Star a statement on her behalf.~snip~
Everybody seems to think that when Obama's time is up in office we'll be able to get back on track as a country but the truth is that the same civil servants who feel entitled to collect a paycheck from us while turning up their nose will still be there.

Lois Lerner is not an aberration but the rule in the union controlled agencies that we pay for.
If the next administration really wants to improve government then they will purge the government unions and make clear to government employees that they work for the citizens of this country and not the democrat party.

Republicans Abandon Social Issues

So. tell me again how the republicans are supposed to be the "opposition" party.

More Than 300 Republicans Call on Supreme Court to Recognize Gay Marriage Nationally
Signers include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Sens. Susan Collins and Mark Kirk and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker 
More than 300 veteran Republican lawmakers, operatives and consultants have filed a friend of the court brief at the Supreme Court in support of same-sex marriage late Thursday. 
The amicus brief, organized by former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman, was filed for the four same-sex marriage cases the Court will hear on April 28 that could legalize the unions nationwide. In 2013, Mehlman marshaled a similar effort for the case that overturned California’s Proposition 8, which had banned same-sex marriage in the state. 
Among the signatories are 23 current and former Republicans members of the House of Representatives and Senate and seven current and former Governors. Sens. Susan Collins and Mark Kirk have signed onto the brief, as has Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman. Other notables include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal and billionaire GOP mega-donor David Koch.~snip~
There is a huge number of voters out there that do not approve of homosexuality or homosexual marriage who are being shouted down by the media and the pink mafia.

Way more than the less than 2% of the population that "identifies" as homosexual.

If anyone dares to stand up for their beliefs then the government is there to strong arm them to the will of the of the gay lobby.

So basically this large group of voters are being denied representation for their opposition.
When Romney lost the election a lot of pundits wondered where the voters were.

Obviously the republicans can't win if they consistently turn their backs on issues of concern to voters. I guess it's a lesson that they refuse to learn.

RINO's Lay Down for Amnesty

This should be the symbol of the GOP.

The 75 Republicans who voted to fund Obama’s amnesty: Remember these names
House Republicans, led by Speaker John Boehner, caved in to Democrat demands and passed a “clean” funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday.
The bill includes funding for Obama’s executive amnesty actions, a sticking point for conservatives.
The legislation provides funding for Obama’s move to shield about 5 million illegals from deportation.
Boehner and the Republicans who passed the bill picked the same day as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address before Congress — perhaps using it as cover to push the bill through with less major media attention.<snip>
Click the link to see who the spineless assholes are who want to be besties with Obama and the liberal/commie democrats.
Obviously it's not enough to vote for someone simply because he has an R after his name.

What a Concept

One thing you can count on with our politicians is if the American people are against illegal immigration then RINO's and liberal/commie democrats are for it.
Some politicians around the world are just a little more receptive to their peoples demand that they enforce their laws.

Norway Just Deported 824 Muslims, Every American Needs To See What Happened Next
Despite all the liberals in Norway deeming this “racist”, the logical party went ahead with it and the result almost shut down every opposing voice in the government instantly. This is one of the best stories we have eve seen come from such a liberal area of the world.
Violent Crime Dropped By 30%
That’s right, whopping 30%, and it’s all because a couple of politicians decided to enforce the laws that they already had. What a world we live in where that is a shocking thing to do in a government.<snip>
You gotta wonder what kind f political system we have where those who break our laws have more of a voice than the citizens who pay taxes and play by the rules.

San Fran Nan Near Tears

I get pretty much near tears every time I realize that people actually vote for her

Pelosi 'near tears' at Bibi 'insult'
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hammered Benjamin Netanyahu Tuesday, saying the Israeli prime minister's speech to Congress was an "insult" to the country.
“The unbreakable bonds between the United States and Israel are rooted in our shared values, our common ideals and mutual interests," Pelosi said in a statement just after the speech.
“That is why, as one who values the U.S. — Israel relationship, and loves Israel, I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech — saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the P5 +1 nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation."<snip>
I always thought Nancy was supposed to be all about the girrrrl power?
Yet after a few words by Bibi she wilts.

You can't tell me anyone is really falling for this old drama queens shtick.
