fusillade762: What is the logo supposed to be? I get that the thing on the left is a branch with leaves on it. But on the right? Is that a... vulture?


The logo depicts the Tree of Progressive Taxation on the left while on the right is the Vulture of the Internal Revenue Service perched symbolically on the roof of an International House of Pancakes. These Masonic symbols have come down to us from the cuneiform scripts of the ancient Sumerians. Of particular antiquity is the depiction of the Vulture as a symbol of re-animation, the consumption of death to create life, or rebirth. The Tree of Progressive Taxation in the logo takes the form of an olive branch which symbolizes plenty, rather than the more recent Christian symbol of peace. The roof of the International House of Pancakes symbolizes enfranchisement.

pueblonative: themindiswatching: Everyone has secrets. Obama's "high crime or misdemeanor" will come out soon enough.


Last I checked, Presidentin while Blah didn't fall under either category


He's not that blah; he's actually pretty animated, when he's talking about a subject in which he believes.  But sometimes, yeah, he appears kind of underwhelmed.  I don't know why you're making such a big deal about it, though.  Everyone has an off day, even the President.  Try cutting him some slack-- you're not always "Mr. Personality" yourself.

Would it be inappropriate to shout "liar, liar, pants on fire," to Issa, or would he try to get an insurance payout on that too?

Color me skeptical.  I just headed over to Right Wing News, and they have not yet reported that Darrell Issa overreached.  Until I hear it from a trusted source like RWN, I'm going to hedge my bets on this one.

Issa was right though, releasing the transcripts would compromise the investigation.

Now that they're released, there's no more reason to investigate.

Animatronik: First they said it was a grunt in Cincinatti who acted alone, so the President' s ppl couldn't be involved,  Now they're saying , well ok it wasn't just some grunt in Cincinatti, senior IRS officials in Washington knew about it, but for some reason that makes White House involvement less likely, not more.

/Not buying it.

vpb: Hollie Maea: Darrell Issa is a bad man.

Yes, but he's a good anal sphincter.


No, he's not even that.
Think about your anus: what you you expect it to do - at a minimum?  You want it to keep the shiat given to it by the rest of your digestive tract inside until it can be disposed of in a sanitary and non-offensive manner.

Darrell Issa on the other hand doesn't just process crap - he actively creates bullshiat.  And he doesn't get rid of it nicely either; he flings it onto every available surface to see what sticks; and of course it doesn't, so gravity just spreads it even more.

Darrell Issa can only be considered even an 'acceptable' anal sphincter if your comparison is one that has both continuous explosive diarrhea and continual fresh oil hitting it.

randomjsa: Liberals used to say that Cheney was the one really in charge and that he had to tell Bush what was going on.

That was a problem for them only because they seem to think its completely normal of that nobody knows what is going on, least of all the president.


Cleaned that up for you a little.

Liberals believed Cheney had strong influence over White House decisions. That may be based on his saying things like "Reagan proved deficits don't matter".

Nicely summed up in the comments"

"Wait, what appears to have happened is that regular working folks at the IRS saw an issue, began analyzing the issue, asked for guidance to ensure equal treatment was used and that a protocol was in place, which would allow for efficiencies and money savings. Then when higher level employees and directors learned of the criteria they immediately changed it so not to be too critical of one group, and later changed it again. So the crime is that our "bad government agencies" acted appropriately at all levels?"

"And then the IRS conducted an internal investigation, and admitted to the public that targeting had occurred. It's a scandal! "

ANSWER: I have no reason to believe that.
QUESTION: Do you have any reason to believe that anyone in the White House was involved in the decision to centralize the review of Tea Party cases?
ANSWER: I have no reason to believe that.

ehh, if that's what cummings is citing as proof to close the investigation, that's pretty weak. not that issa has much credibility, but cummings is just trying to sweep shiat under the carpet.


Actually, it proves it not only originated with a low-level staffer, but the conservative manager of said staffer allowed it.  That's not sweeping shiat under the carpet, that's 1st hand evidence.

Moreover, Issa didn't want to release this.  They should open up an ethics violation case on Issa.

SixPaperJoint: So, Issa went on Sunday morning talk shows and gave "misleading and incorrect information".

Will he now blame the White House for that too?


If the current resident of the White House would just admit to masterminding everything and submit to the impeachment procedures, Issa wouldn't HAVE to give out misleading and incorrect information!!
