RICH BULEY: Police state

The right wingers seem to continuously claim that some sort of police state is coming because of Obamacare or the BLM, or the IRS, or someting. But, if you really want to see jack booted thugs, we got your police state right here.

RICH BULEY: Cherish your domocracy

Hey, remember not that long ago when right wingers in Congress like Darell Issa were getting Conservatives all wound up about the IRS targeting tea party groups for special investigations as to whether they were really eligible for tax free status? Yeah, those were good times with lots of pundits saying that the “scandal” was […]

MICHAEL BENNETT: Allahu Akbar!

That’s it. I’m declaring my home a mosque. It would seem that that’s the only way to keep the US government from snooping on my private communications. http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/061213-659753-all-intrusive-obama-terror-dragnet-excludes-mosques.htm?ven=taboolacp&utm_source=taboola In our government’s eyes, Lutheran pastors are more likely to hatch terrorist plots than Wahhabist imams.

I can tell you, for a start, that OSHA is not supposed to inspect any facility unless there is an accident, fatality, or a complaint by an employee of an imminent, serious safety violation. The fact that these folks […]

MICHAEL BENNETT: It’s time to audit the IRS

An IRS spokeswoman revealed last week, in a speech to the American Bar Association, that members of Tea Party groups are not paranoid. The IRS really is out to get them. Applications for tax exempt status from any group containing “tea party” or “patriot” in its name have not only been given a level of […]

MICHAEL BENNETT: ID? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ ID!

Hallelujah, I’ve seen the light! Democrats across the country have declared that requiring voters to provide photo identification is an evil (and quite probably racist) Republican plot to steal elections. They argue that such an obligation is an undue burden on the poor and downtrodden, and that it serves no purpose, as nobody in this […]
