| Political Talk|| Obama should be subjected to the impeachment process - I B Freeman on 5/15/13 at 7:53 am|
This stance he and Holder are taking that they knew nothing of IRS abuse of taxpayer and knew nothing of the press wire taps and knew nothing about Benghazi is enough to impeach them.
How does the President of the United States surround himself with such imbeciles? Failure to properly manage gov...

| Political Talk|| What do you think about what this lady says about Planned Parenthood - I B Freeman on 5/14/13 at 6:42 pm|
It is sort of sick they want the managers to encourage abortion to help fund the clinics.
I think there are a certain number of racists in PP that think people of particular races should not have too many ch...
| Political Talk|| Democrat money people are probably negotiating with IRS employees now - I B Freeman on 5/14/13 at 8:26 am|
You see Obama needs to fire some people at the IRS but he knows the House will call these people to testify so he needs them to tow the line. Hard to do if he fires them.
No doubt in my mind there people getting "career guidance" this morning--nothing more than bribes in reality. Get fired, tow ...

| Political Talk|| I missed the change in the goals of civil rights--did you?? - I B Freeman on 5/13/13 at 10:45 am|
I thought for years that the stated goal of those civil rights activists was a "color blind" society and government. I knew that wasn't always apparent in their actions but I nonetheless thought it the goal.
I was wrong.
Somewhere along the line it became the goal to separate the races. To en...

| Political Talk|| Obama's inept, corrupt, bigoted government - I B Freeman on 5/12/13 at 5:17 pm|
The most disturbing example of their ineptitude lies at the feet of Obama, Hillary and Panetta and their obvious attempt to put politics over American lives in Benghazi. Even the liberal media has turned on the previous teflon coated Obama.
| Political Talk|| Obama adds more bigots to staff - I B Freeman on 5/1/13 at 7:08 pm|
We are all familiar with Holder's refusal to prosecute the black panther's voter intimidation and the Obama administration abuse of taxpayers with the USDA payments to invented minority farmers now comes a political appointee who says whites should not be allowed to vote.

This is how democrats think. I wish I were shocked that some member of Congress would actually introduce a resolution like this but unfortunately I am not.
Victimization and global warming rolled into one resolution. The democrat mantra.

| Political Talk|| Solar panel credit lobbyist not as rich and strong as film tax credit lobbyist - I B Freeman on 5/1/13 at 8:28 am|
Seems the leges are rightfully considering phasing out the ridiculous solar power tax credits. I haven't heard one word about how many people they employ--bunches I suspect given the large number of solar panels being installed around the state.

| Political Talk|| Obama political appointees abuse us citing racism at USDA - I B Freeman on 4/27/13 at 12:32 pm|
Seems the USDA had the racism in lending behind them and then alongs come Obama. In classic Obama "us against them" fashion Obama's people crafted victims where there were none.

| Political Talk|| Spending on film tax credits would pay tuition at LSU for 70,000 students - I B Freeman on 4/27/13 at 9:07 am|
Tuition and fees at LSU for 15 hours is $3498. We spent about $250 million in film tax welfare in 2012.
That would pay in full the tuition of 71469 college students at LSU.
Sort of puts into perspective what the film tax welfare advocates are taking from us.
What is the multiplier impact o...

Yesterday there was a certain controversy raised by Politico. They said that Congress was trying to exempt themselves from the ACA act. Democrats quickly said that was not true.
It is not true. It is worse.

| Political Talk|| Food stamp recruiters you and I pay for - I B Freeman on 4/24/13 at 11:08 am|
I don't recognize what our government has become under the socialists.
Now we are actually paying people and putting them on a quota to sign up people for SNAP (food stamps).
What kind of crap is that?? The lady tells people they deserve it.

That is as simple as it can be.
Until such time as another candidate emerges that embraces the true changes Paul supports I will not even consider another candidate for President in 2016.
The "establishment" republicans are as much a source of the problems with government in this country as a...
| Political Talk|| Why is there a shortage of ammo??? Is the price model failing? - I B Freeman on 4/22/13 at 11:17 am|
One would think there is a price that a gun store could put on something like 22LR ammo that would keep it on the shelf but that is not happening.
What is causing this? I understand the fear of government regulation fueling the demand but I do not understand why there is supply shortage in an un...
