@Susan Temple:

"Is it not our responsibility as the public that supports you (through donations and otherwise) to question whether or not the living conditions of these animals is acceptable? "

If it's not funded by tax dollars, it's none of your business. If you don't like it, don't donate.

They said they never intended to charge Rosen. Obtaining this subpoena was just for harassment, and therefor illegal.

It's you and your 'you gots more den me so gimme' ilk that are ruining the country.

People like me just want to work and be free. We can't be free if our money is taken at the point of a gun to give to the looter class.

Bill Ayers: Try Obama for War Crimes...

So what do you think of that from the man who should have spent his life in prison and started Obama into politics?

And, why do we hate big government?

By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER, Jun 19, 4:20 AM (ET): (AP) - The IRS is about to pay $70 million in employee bonuses despite a directive to cancel discretionary bonuses because of automatic spending cuts enacted this year, according to a GOP senator.

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa says his office has learned that the IRS is executing an agreement with the employees' union on Wednesday to pay the bonuses. Grassley says the bonuses should be canceled under an April directive from the WH budget office.

The directive was written by Danny Werfel, a former budget official who has since been appointed acting IRS commissioner...(continued)...

...(continued)...

"The IRS always claims to be short on resources," Grassley said. "But it appears to have $70 million for union bonuses. And it appears to be making an extra effort to give the bonuses despite opportunities to renegotiate with the union & federal instruction to cease discretionary bonuses during sequestration."

The IRS said it is negotiating with the union over the matter but did not dispute Grassley's claim that the bonuses are imminent.

I'm beginning to agree that we need to just shut the IRS down. What do you think?

So your poit Kozy. The same thing was said about Bush and Cheney over the irag war .

I believe Grassely also said Obama said they where not supposed to pay out the bonuses,

So why don't you run down their and spank someone.

Seems to me the big banks after almost plunging the country into a depression had no trouble paying out bonuses and raiseas to the top dogs.

Thats how the system works now.

ladybug...no argument here...I have been saying for many years and way before Obama that this spending has to stop. We need term limits and a balanced budget.

The budget should be slashed and that includes all areas of infringement beyond the Constitution. The borders should be closed and people sent back home. Healthcare should be a product of personal choice beyond medicare. Impeachment should be easier and any politician who circumvents the Constitution should go to jail, and not collect his/her pay during anytime they are not working.

Just one problem with your thoughts Kozy.

It won't ever happen !!As long as we have the little people fighting among themselves and everyone buying into the political dialouge where sunk

We are spending more time making a conspiracy out of everything ,while the serious issues go by the wayside,

For months all we heard was no budget from Obama.

Now we have 3 versions and you hear nothing.
