In 2004 under the Bush

In 2004 under the Bush administration the All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, Ca. was approached by the IRS due to an anti-war sermon. Three years later no action had been taken but the case was dropped without comment by the IRS (and a significant legal bill for the church.) This was a patent abuse of the IRS function by Bush in order to suppress views contrary to his own. 

Right-winger's love of war and the ensuing profits might reexamine their understanding of their religion if they think it has any relation to the teachings of Jesus.

Let's call the Bush years what they were:  Romney LITE!!!

 

Since we are not allowed to bring up Bush or the Bush depressiom the best way the get people to understand just how dangerous Romney/Ryan economicis are is to call the Bush years Romney Lite!

After watching the Frontline

After watching the Frontline program and then reviewing in my mind the way President Obama appeared during the debate the thought has crossed my mind that Obama has gotten bored with being President.  If you look at his history he has a tendency to loose interest in what he has been dooing and then move on to a different challenge.
