    Face it, weve got your number.
    The NSA... is that really foreign, or domestic policy? No one seems to mind that but the libertarians.

    Weaponizing the IRS??

    Its both, and Im a conservative who minds.

    And yes, turning the IRS into a political weapon to target opposition is a low blow, if Bush had done that we would never hear the end of it.

    Its reasonable to figure that the left seems to think this is fair play, in which case the right will catch them on the flip side.

    I disagree that the left thinks it was fair play. They just deny that there was unfair targeting.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Oh, that's the meaning behind "weaponizing" the IRS. Just a bit of an exaggeration. But, isn't that what I said originally, criticizing domestic policy is the job of the "conservatives"?

    Right, the denial that makes them guilty. If you had watched the testimony, you'd know how damning it is.

    Its not a "job", but since the Democrat parties policies have demonstrably failed across the spectrum, its their job to mitigate the damage.

    The left will feign interest in fixing things until just after the mid terms.

Are the other things problems that are out of hand yes they are but that is not what you said. You said it was a police state that got them the time off. Also I dont know how you get dirty juries just stupid ones. We have no one to blame but ourselves for that.




    Yes it is. Go check out the unconstitutional checkpoints in Tennessee. I can list numerous examples.

    Tennessee to roll out "No Refusal" blood-draw DUI checkpoints for Labor Day | Police State USA

    No. Paid days off are not examples of a police state like you said and what I was responding to. If you read my post I said there were other examples that were signs Like your link) of a police state just not what you listed in the first post I responded to.



    We're already there. Just because APCs aren't rolling around on every street in America (and certain towns already have these) doesn't discount the authoritative state we're living in.
    In the end we both think we are either at a police state or headed that way. I just think that your example was crap.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    Except things really need fixing, and the left seems incapable of solutions-just lowered expectations.
