    Not that it makes it right, but I'd guess those on the right have done the same BS at some time in the past as well.


    Texas House paralyzed by Democratic walkout


    I am thinking it happened more recently in Wisconsin with that whole dancing and rioting in the streets Walker thing.

    He was cutting expenses and they tried to cut his throat.
    Thank you

Educate yourself it's really powerful to know the facts before you post ridiculous stuff on the boards!
    Actually I watched the hearings and it seems pretty much the opposite. Holder was asked repeatedly to take the whole situation offline and explain his reasoning but he refused. "No" is pretty simple and clear to me.

    INVESTIGATION | Fast and Furious Investigation

    The hearing list is there along with the "facts".

    Chicken is a bit dramatic but he did refuse to comply with a lawful subpoena.

    No one is above the law. Or at least its supposed to be that way.


    The videos are both educational and interesting at times.
    Thank you

    Yeah, forgot about Wisconsin. Pretty pathetic... of course the defenders of such actions say they are 'protesting' and that is their right. Um, no, the public protests, they are the law makers, it's their job to vote. Protest on their own time, just like we have to.

    From that article:

    The full application is not included in what Issa entered into the Congressional Record, and names are obscured in Issa’s letter.

    Sure, no reason not to hand over to this clown 80,000 pages of documents containing sensitive information about ongoing investigations and the identities of undercover agents.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Did you miss the fact that names were redacted? Again?

    I'm sure it will be safer with Issa than the 2,000 ATF classified pages that wound up with Fortune magazine.

    Did you miss the fact that it was illegal for Issa to include the letter in the record AT ALL?

    Hmm...

    The wiretap applications are under court seal, and releasing such information to the public would ordinarily be illegal. But Issa appears to be protected by the Speech or Debate Clause in the Constitution, which offers immunity for Congressional speech, especially on a chamber’s floor.
    It appears, that yet again, you are incorrect.
