Flashback – Tim Geithner’s tax evasion – Telegraph Blogs

THE US senate finance committee has voted for a tax evader to become Treasury secretary. He is likely to be confirmed by a vote on the senate floor soon.
Be in no doubt that is what Tim Geithner is. I’m not sure what is more amazing about this case: the virtually free pass he has been given by the media, the toothless opposition of the Republicans or the magnitude of Obama’s first betrayal of his ideals.
In 2006 the Internal Revenue Service discovered that Geithner had not paid he had failed to pay taxes in 2003 and 2004 because he had incorrectly believed they were deducted at source by the IMF, where he had moved after serving the treasury in the Clinton administration. He duly paid about $17,230 in back taxes and interest.

My open letter to Charles Ogletree:

I have seen how you decided what to withhold from the public during the ’08 election. Just who made you the minister of news and information? Anyway, I’m disappointed in your racial views. Aren’t we over that? If we’re not, your editing or withholding of facts doesn’t help us get any closer to what you claim you want, equality. I have met you personally and was impressed, I am deflated now that I see your true self.

What’s in a name?

Here’s a thought, How come a 30 year old career student/activist can’t afford a couple of bucks a day for her birth control? Answer, a plant from Obama world. Take the extreme and make it the norm. Wake up people, you’re getting screwed again. Don’t care Republican, Democrat they all suck. They suck for money, hey, they’re the sluts!

Six more U.S. Congressmen have demanded Attorney General Eric Holder leave his post this week in the wake of Operation Fast and Furious, bringing the number of U.S. House members pushing for a change in Justice Department leadership to 109.

Spokespeople for Florida Republican Reps. Cliff Stearns and Mario Diaz-Balart told The Daily Caller their bosses agree with the surging group of members already demanding Holder’s resignation. Meanwhile, four new members have signed onto the official House resolution of “no confidence” in Holder — House Resolution 490 –  because of Fast and Furious: Republican Reps. Bill Huizenga of Michigan, Cory Gardner of Colorado, and Pete Olson and Mike Conaway, both of Texas.

Supreme Court: No Warrant Needed for CA Game Wardens to Stop Cars – Independent Voter Network

Credit: ThinkProgress.org

The U.S. Supreme Court decided Monday not to review a California Supreme Court ruling from last June that upheld the constitutionality of vehicle stops made by California game wardens to make sure motorists leaving hunting or fishing grounds haven’t bagged any wildlife out of season.

By denying review of the ruling, the nation’s high court handed California game wardens the authority to conduct vehicle stops without a warrant. While it was the National Rifle Association that joined the defendant’s legal counsel in requesting a hearing from the Supreme Court, the ACLU might have had more at stake than the NRA in a case that has more to do with the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution than the Second Amendment.

Have a Sam Adams

Samuel Adams

“No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.” ~ Samuel Adams
