Quote Of The Week

"The United States is a nation of laws. My administration will always act in accordance with those laws and with an unshakeable commitment to our ideals. That is why we have released these memos, and that is why we have taken steps to ensure that the actions described within them never take place again,"

Barack Obama on the release of classified Department of Justice.

I guess the obvious question here is, does this statement apply to the tax code also?

Chuck you should google Matthew Alexander and read all about torture and why Obama released these memos. He absolutely did the right thing, and is working on the tax code as we speak! Things are changing my friend, we are heading the right way finally!! (or should I say "left" way!!) ;-))

Sue, I am talking about expecting candidates for his cabinet follow the tax code. Point is Obama is all for others following the law, just not his staff.

It should read "laws which I happen to agree with, we can ignore the rest, and my people can ignore all of them."

So, I guess the constitution doesn't count as law then? That jerk and his hodge-podge of crooks, liars, and cheats wouldn't know an "ideal" if it up and bit them on the frigging ass.

Terrorists first, American taxpayers and citizens last.

"The United States is a nation of laws. My administration will always act in accordance with those laws and with an unshakeable commitment to our ideals....I call BS on that! This are the terms in which demagogues always couch their totalitarian push as they try to lull the people into thinking nothing bad is happening.

You are right, we are todays extremists, if you go by the crap set forth by the leftist morons.. ..If you look at the way Obama beams at those America haters you would see that ..Rush is right..Obama believes he will make our "evil country" into a socialist utopia that these demagogues will admire. Obama, Ortega, Rev Wright, Chavez, Castro and Louis Farrakhan are all cut from the same hate America cloth..
