“According to the 2010 American Community Survey 1-Year Estimates, the unemployment rate for non-Hispanic black residents in North Carolina was almost twice the rate for non-Hispanic white residents (19.2% compared to 10.5%).”…Eric Holder’s US Justice Dept lawsuit against NC

“‘the Framers of the Constitution intended the States to keep for themselves, as provided in the Tenth Amendment, the power to regulate elections.’”

“The Voting Rights Act sharply departs from these basic principles. It suspends “all changes to state election law—however innocuous—until they have been preclearedby federal authorities in Washington, D. C.” Id., at 202. States must beseech the Federal Government for permission to implement laws that they would otherwise have the right to enact and execute on their own”… Chief Justice Roberts, Shelby County, AL vs Holder, Attorney General, et al 

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”…Abraham Lincoln

The corrupt Obama US Justice Dept. led by Obama’s pal Eric Holder is sueing the state of NC over its recent changes to the voter laws.

First of all I would like to thank Eric Holder for helping to highlight the impact of the Obama Administration on blacks in NC.
“According to the 2010 American Community Survey 1-Year Estimates, the unemployment rate for non-Hispanic black residents in North Carolina was almost twice the rate for non-Hispanic white residents (19.2% compared to 10.5%).”

Eric Holder claims that the new NC voting law changes are discriminatory.

“Provisions of HB 589
23. HB 589 makes several significant changes to North Carolina’s election law. Among other changes, HB 589 alters existing law by reducing the number of early voting days available to voters, eliminating same-day voter registration during the early voting period, and prohibiting the counting of provisional ballots cast by voters who attempt to vote in their county, but outside their home precinct. HB 589 also imposes a new photo identification requirement for in-person voters.

“the discriminatory impact of photo identification requirements on minority voters, and the challenges people encounter in obtaining the underlying documentation needed to acquire the types of photo identification that would be required by the proposed law.”

“Implementation of HB 589 Will Have a Discriminatory Result”

“The reduction of the number of days of early voting and elimination of the first seven days of early voting, including the first weekend days of early voting, will have a discriminatory impact on African-American voters in North Carolina.”

http://www.justice.gov/iso/opa/resources/646201393013723793555.pdf

Legal definition of discrimination.
“In Constitutional Law, the grant by statute of particular privileges to a class arbitrarily designated from a sizable number of persons, where no reasonable distinction exists between the favored and disfavored classes. Federal laws, supplemented by court decisions, prohibit discrimination in such areas as employment, housing, voting rights, education, and access to public facilities. They also proscribe discrimination on the basis of race, age, sex, nationality, disability, or religion. In addition, state and local laws can prohibit discrimination in these areas and in others not covered by federal laws.”

http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/discrimination

The NC voting laws are clearly not discriminatory. They apply equally to all citizens.

A fifth grader can understand that.

From Gateway Pundit September 30, 2013.

“So, will Holder sue the majority of US States?

  • 14 states allow straight party voting. North Carolina now joins the 36 other states that do not.
  • 15 states allow NO early voting or no-excuse absentee voting. (Those include NY and Mass)
  • 32 states allow early voting ranging from 4 days prior to election day to 45 days with an average 19 days. North Carolina allows 10 days but requires the same number of hours of early voting that was available in 2012 and 2010 when the early voting period was 17 days.
  • Only 1 state allows same day registration during early voting. NC was the only other state to allow this and has now joined 49 states in not allowing same day registration during early voting.
  • 11 states allow same day registration on Election Day. North Carolina does not.
  • 5 states allow 16 and 17 year olds to pre-register to vote. 45 states do not, including now, North Carolina.

Illinois and Delaware require voter ID. Hawaii has even stricter voter ID requirements. Why is Holder not suing those states?”

FURTHERMORE

Even though the recent US Supreme Court decision in Shelby County, AL vs Holder, Attorney General, et al addressed the preclearance requirement of the Voting Rights Act, Chief Justice Roberts emphasized the constitutional provisions giving the states most of election powers.

“Outside the strictures of the Supremacy Clause, States retain broad autonomy in structuring their governments and pursuing legislative objectives. Indeed, the Constitution provides that all powers not specifically granted to the Federal Government are reserved to the States or citizens. Amdt. 10. This “allocation of powers in our federal system preserves the integrity, dignity, and residual sovereignty of the States.” Bond v. United States, 564 U. S. ___, ___
(2011) (slip op., at 9). But the federal balance “is not just an end in itself: Rather, federalism secures to citizens the liberties that derive from the diffusion of sovereign power.” Ibid. (internal quotation marks omitted).
More specifically, “‘the Framers of the Constitution intended the States to keep for themselves, as provided in the Tenth Amendment, the power to regulate elections.’” Gregory v. Ashcroft, 501 U. S. 452, 461–462 (1991) (quoting Sugarman v. Dougall, 413 U. S. 634, 647 (1973); some internal quotation marks omitted). Of course, the Federal Government retains significant control over federal elections. For instance, the Constitution authorizes Congress to establish the time and manner for electing Senators and Representatives. Art. I, §4, cl. 1; see also Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Ariz., Inc., ante, at 4–6. But States have “broad powers to determine the conditions under which the right of suffrage may be exercised.” Carrington v. Rash, 380 U. S. 89, 91 (1965) (internal quotation marks omitted); see also Arizona, ante, at 13–15. And “[e]ach State has the power to prescribe the qualifications of its officers and the manner in which they shall be chosen.” Boyd v. Nebraska ex rel. Thayer, 143 U. S. 135, 161 (1892). Drawing lines for congressional districts is likewise “primarily the duty and responsibility of the State.” Perry v. Perez, 565 U. S. ___, ___ (2012) (per curiam) (slip op., at 3)(internal quotation marks omitted).
Not only do States retain sovereignty under the Constitution, there is also a “fundamental principle of equal sovereignty” among the States. Northwest Austin, supra, at 203 (citing United States v. Louisiana, 363 U. S. 1, 16 (1960); Lessee of Pollard v. Hagan, 3 How. 212, 223 (1845); and Texas v. White, 7 Wall. 700, 725–726 (1869); emphasis added). Over a hundred years ago, this Court explained that our Nation “was and is a union of States, equal in power, dignity and authority.” Coyle v. Smith, 221 U. S. 559, 567 (1911). Indeed, “the constitutional equality of the States is essential to the harmonious operation of the scheme upon which the Republic was organized.” Id., at
580. Coyle concerned the admission of new States, and Katzenbach rejected the notion that the principle operated as a bar on differential treatment outside that context. 383 U. S., at 328–329. At the same time, as we made clear in Northwest Austin, the fundamental principle of equal sovereignty remains highly pertinent in assessing subsequent disparate treatment of States. 557 U. S., at 203.
The Voting Rights Act sharply departs from these basic principles. It suspends “all changes to state election law—however innocuous—until they have been precleared by federal authorities in Washington, D. C.” Id., at 202. States must beseech the Federal Government for permission to implement laws that they would otherwise have the right to enact and execute on their own, subject of course to any injunction in a §2 action. The Attorney General has 60 days to object to a preclearance request,longer if he requests more information. See 28 CFR §§51.9, 51.37. If a State seeks preclearance from a three judge court, the process can take years.
And despite the tradition of equal sovereignty, the Act applies to only nine States (and several additional counties). While one State waits months or years and expends funds to implement a validly enacted law, its neighbor can typically put the same law into effect immediately, through the normal legislative process. Even if a non covered jurisdiction is sued, there are important differences between those proceedings and preclearance proceedings; the preclearance proceeding “not only switches the burden of proof to the supplicant jurisdiction, but also applies substantive standards quite different from those governing the rest of the nation.” 679 F. 3d, at 884 (Williams, J., dissenting) (case below).
All this explains why, when we first upheld the Act in 1966, we described it as “stringent” and “potent.” Katzen
bach, 383 U. S., at 308, 315, 337. We recognized that it“may have been an uncommon exercise of congressional power,” but concluded that “legislative measures not otherwise appropriate” could be justified by “exceptional conditions.” Id., at 334. We have since noted that the Act “authorizes federal intrusion into sensitive areas of state and local policy making,” Lopez, 525 U. S., at 282, and represents an “extraordinary departure from the traditional course of relations between the States and the Federal Government,” Presley v. Etowah County Comm’n, 502 U. S. 491, 500–501 (1992). As we reiterated in Northwest Austin, the Act constitutes “extraordinary legislation otherwise unfamiliar to our federal system.” 557 U. S., at 211.”
Is this just another Obama administration race baiting move or retribution for NC rejecting Obama and the Democrat Party in 2012?
What a bunch of morons.
In their zeal to attack the state of NC they reveal the plight of blacks under Obama.
“According to the 2010 American Community Survey 1-Year Estimates, the unemployment rate for non-Hispanic black residents in North Carolina was almost twice the rate for non-Hispanic white residents (19.2% compared to 10.5%).”

Play all the name calling that Barry, Pelosi, Reid, all the other communist pigs Demo-rats called the Republicans and Tea Party/aka/ American citizens and the communist morons in the media called us. So many ways the ads can be turned on the communist pig demo-rats.

    We need a lot of Democrat citizens who really love this country to get in all the voting places and video the corruption that is going on. BEFORE THE ELECTION day so that area can be cleaned up!

    Walid Shoebat, former terrorist himself in the PLO, provides detailed information previously reported in WND, regarding Malik Obama, Barack Hussein Obama’s half brother. Malik has a quite cozy relationship with Lois Lerner, ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the most radical Wahhabi Madrasah funding, including the most radical Madrasah in the world.

    Walid says that Obama is very sympathetic to Radical Islamists and that he is implicated in support of terror operations in a speech delivered in Egypt. Shoebat says their are major implications for America in this information.

    With the Obama half brother linked to Muslim Brotherhood funding, and Lois Lerner herself signing his 501C tax exempt letter, By the time you finish this, you’ll be angry.

  13. Doctor describes al-Shabab’s savagery: ‘You find people with hooks hanging from the roof.’

    The al-Shabab terrorists who seized a Kenyan shopping mall for four days tortured, maimed and mutilated some of their 67 victims, leaving a tattered scene of ghoulish, gruesome remains that investigators likened to scenes from a horror movie.

    Hostages were left hanging and had their eyes gouged, others were dismembered. Others had their throats slashed or were castrated and had fingers amputated, according to media reports quoting soldiers, medical personnel and investigators sorting through the rubble of the collapsed mall.

    Kenya’s The Star, quoting a forensics doctor, said all of the victims were mutilated. Britain’s Daily Mail reported children stashed in refrigerators with knives in their bodies.

    “You find people with hooks hanging from the roof. They removed eyes, ears, nose. Actually if you look at all the bodies, unless those ones that
    were escaping, fingers are cut by pliers, the noses are ripped by pliers,” said the doctor. The Star said he declined to give his name.

    “A REFRESHER…FROM DOUG ROSS@JOURNAL…”

    “Barack Obama’s biographical brief edited repeatedly over 17 years, but Kenyan birthplace changed just weeks after his presidential run announced”

    “I’ve used the Wayback Archive to explore the exact transformations of Obama’s biography on his agent’s site …”

    On April 3, 2007, the website read: “BARACK OBAMA is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. …

    Sometime between April 3rd and April 21st, a member of the Obama campaign staff (or Obama himself) noticed the discrepancy in birthplace that would presumably disqualify the Senator from office.

    On April 21, 2007, the website read: “BARACK OBAMA is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Hawaii to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. …

    Old media’s feeble handling of this issue — parroting the laughable assertion that clerical errors caused Obama’s birthplace to be incorrectly listed, when former clients and the agency’s policy itself states that authors provide the biographical briefs — is pathetic.”

  27. I received this in my email today from a friend………

    As I approach my twilight years, I am struck by the inevitability that the party must end. And, one clear, cold morning after I’m gone, my spouse will awaken in the warmth of our bedroom and be struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn’t “any more.” No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more, “just one minute.” Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say “good-bye” or say “I love you.” So while we have it, it’s best we love it, care for it, fix it when it’s broken and heal it when it’s sick. This is true for marriage… and old cars, and children with bad report cards, dogs with bad hips and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it. Some things we keep — like a best friend who moved away. There are just some things that make us happy no matter what. Life is important, like people we know who are special. And so, we keep them close! Suppose one morning you never wake up. Do all your friends know how you really feel? The important thing is to let everyone of your friends know your true feelings, even if you think they don’t love you back. So, just in case I’m gone tomorrow, please rest assured I voted against Obama both times.

    Obama sued for ‘illegal’ Obamacare move
    ‘Politics do not trump the Constitution or the rule of law’

    Another lawsuit has been filed against the president’s health care takeover strategy – this time by a Florida company complaining that Barack Obama had no authority to simply go in and change the law once it had been approved by Congress and signed.

  34. William | October 2, 2013 at 7:33 am |
    In this case, had Chief Justice Roberts not re-written ObamaCare in the first place, we wouldn’t be having this discussion to begin with….
    ==========================

    MY TWO CENTS…….
    The lawsuit brought before the Supreme Court claimed the Affordable Care Act violated the Commerce Clause by forcing people to buy health insurance. It should have included the numerous violations to equal protection because the law discriminates who is and who is not required to buy health insurance.

    The Obama Administration has already handed out 111 Obamacare waivers to U.S. companies. Unfortunately, if you’re a small business or don’t have connections you can’t get a waiver for your company. And there are some select groups who are exempt (Prisoners, illegal aliens, and foreign nationals, Amish, Mennonites, Scientologists and some Muslims). Even members of Congress are exempt from the Health Care Law, the very same law that they, themselves, passed. Waivers and exemptions to certain groups of people negate equal protection under the law. It is for these reasons that this law violates the Constitution and should be overturned

    HR3590 has more than 2000 pages but here is a summary, only 49 pages…..

    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:HR03590:@@@D&summ2=3&amp

  35. TWO CENTS MORE…..

    The Affordable Care Act transforms the entire national health care system and affects all residents of the U.S., not just the 18 million who were without healthcare insurance . Obamacare is a humongous mishmash of rules and regulations and taxations that intrude and affect every aspect of our lives. The IRS may need as many as 16,000 additional auditors, agents and other employees to investigate and collect billions in new taxes from Americans.
    In the HR3590 summary, the words “Requires the Secretary” (of DHS) appear 98 times and “Directs the Secretary” appears 64 times. “Authorizes the Secretary” appears 30 times. The law gives a tremendous amount of power to one individual, Kathleen Sebelius, who “serves only at the will of the President” and was NOT elected by We, the People. It is Congress who makes the laws, NOT Katleen Sebelius and Not Barack Obama.

    The Democrat Congress passed Obamacare and gave the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) free reign to do whatever it damn well pleases. Obamacare is making determinations as to what taxes citizens are required to pay. That too is the Constitutional responsibility given to Congress. Has Congress relinquished its Constitutional responsibility when it passed Obamacare? If so, they better take it back before it’s too late. This law clearly violates the Constitution separation of powers.

  36. Good Morning CW, et. al.

    Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?
    Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better!
    If you’ve read his book you will agree, this is a good summary.

    PLIMER: “Okay, here’s the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland . Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of you.

    Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress – it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.
    I know….it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of
    your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad,
    Nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs…..well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

    The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just four days – yes, FOUR DAYS – by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time – EVERY DAY.
    I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

    Yes, folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over
    One year – think about it.

    Of course, I shouldn’t spoil this ‘touchy-feely tree-hugging’ moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which
    keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.
    And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

    Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus ‘human-caused’ climate-change scenario.
    Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention ‘Global Warming’
    Anymore, but just ‘Climate Change’ – you know why?
    It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.

    And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme – that whopping new tax – imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.
    It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.
    But, hey, relax……give the world a hug and have a nice day!”

  38. This lady may just have a point……..

    WHEN THE ,MAN COMES AROUND
    Has anyone stopped to think what will happen when America no longer carries the world’s “big stick”….Well…. you can be assured it won’t be pretty and it won’t be humane….

    As this woman has pointed out, America is now fighting, or preparing to fight in over 170 countries around the globe….what happens when we can no longer sustain this combative mode?…I don;t think it will take a foreign affairs expert to figure that one out.

    When America loses her effort to wage global war, the rest of the world will pounce on us like hungry wolves. We will be dismembered by every nation that we have done dirty in the past….Ever the small nations will become a part of the “kick butt feast” against the world’s bully…. even though the average citizen had nothing to do with the aggression that was waged against lessor nations…..

    When America loses her power and might to wage war…..you can be sure that other nations will remember with a vengeance …and other nation’s will most certainly take their “pound of flesh”…..and much more.

    When the chickens come home to roost, the wolves will be waiting for them at the door. Since the end of WWII,the just war, we have somehow twisted the Golden Rule that once read….”Do onto others as ye would have them do unto you”……now take that to mean, ‘Do unto other before they do it unto you”….for that simple mistake…we will pay dearly.

    For those non believers…I refer you to the history books. In over 5,000 years of recorded history, a losing nation has never been treated in a humane way….we should not expect history to change courses just because we are America.

  39. Jonah,

    I 100% agree with you…..

  40. When the truth about Obamacare really sinks in, the American people will have a revolution…This article was taken this a.m. from Drudge Report…
    ——————————————————————————————-
    “Will Sheehan claims that when he tried to sign up for Obamacare and then register to opt out, he received an ominous warning. Sheehan’s full Facebook post reads;

    “I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance.

    I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the “REPERCUSSIONS PORTION” for “non-payment” of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy “Automatically withdraw” your “penalties” weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is “Free” or even “Affordable.”

    —————————————————————————————–
    If I am reading this right , Mr. Sheehan’s premiums will cost him $7164.00 per year, plus an additional $13, 988.00 yearly deductable….adding these two amounts together will total $21,152.00.

    This is almost one-half of his total yearly income….and he has been told if he don’t pay it, his bank account will be attached…..plus he will lose his drivers license …and his home can have a lien put against it…..

    Are we still living in America?

    Has everyone just gone to sleep here in the “land of the free and the home of the brave”?…When did we sign up for this ultra-socialist form of government? Does our Constitution, which we have lived under for over 237 years, have no meaning any more or protection from unjust laws?

    Are we now living in a country where the Russians, with their communist form of government, now have more liberties and freedoms than our democratic Republic enjoys?

    Now something stands out with this story like a sore thumb…..

    first, the government and Mr. Obama said; “The federal government has consistently denied that any fines pertaining to Obamacare non-compliance could be seized from bank accounts, despite reports last year that the IRS had hired 16,500 new agents to harass citizens who attempt to evade the new law.” It now appears we know why the IRS required those 16,000 extra new people.

    Then Obama and the Affordable Care Act stated; ““There’s no criminal sanctions for not paying this, and there’s no ability to levy a bank account or do seizures,” then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman said in April 2010 in a Congressional hearing.”

    Theres still more to the pledges; “In addition, Americans who refuse to pay for mandatory health insurance “shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution,” according to the law itself.

    Section 1501(g)(2) of the Affordable Care Act also states that the IRS cannot “file notice of lien with respect to any property of a taxpayer by reason of any failure to pay the penalty imposed by this section.”

    Finally, you do not know what your premiums will be until after you input all your information into the system, the you are informed what your premiums will be and your yearly deductable…..by this time, you are in their database,the “TRAP HAS BEEN SPRUNG”. If you refuse to get the insurance they offer….then the IRS harassment begins until you either pay or lose your home….

    Now one of two things is happening with this “Affordable Care Act”: (1) either Mr. Sheehan is lying about this email…or

    (2) our rouge government he has been lying to the people all along about the cost of this insurance and their bottom-line intent with this “Affordable Care Law”

    Well we know who is lying…and it isn’t Mr. Sheehan.

    I tend to believe option two is correct……and if every citizen is facing the same bleak prospects that Mr.Sheehan is facing, we will soon know why the DHS has been stockpiling all that ammunition, weapons, and war making stuff……and it isn’t for the protection of all the Owls who will attending the Annual Mice Picnic…..it will be for

    The brutal ENFORCEMENT of OBAMACARE.

    So much for Democracy.

  41. CW, et. al,

    BTW, those “General Questions” and Answer sessions pertaining to changes in insurance, didn’t come from any employee’s! It was sprung on us, no meetings to discuss and ask questions, ect…

    In other words, the general questions and answers had to be given to the company from the government and simply passed down to us.

  42. WILLIAM….good afternoon…

    Got your email……sounds like they “Sprung the Trap”….of course you could refuse to answer the questions…then like Mr. Sheehan, you mighty lose your drivers liscense…or have your bank account robbed…or lose you house…..(just kidding of course)…well for now anyway.

    After all…this is America, you know !

    It is understood that IRS will NOT legally have the power to attach liens, etc. as the result of penalties not being paid. That is not to say that O’Care spokesmen will not bully “offenders” or that Obama won’t step in and decide otherwise all by himself, as he is prone to do. The way the law stands now, IRS can only deduct the amount from any tax refunds to which you are entitled but not proceed further to enforce collection.

    Here are a couple of sites. This whole law is horrible and should be repealed, but we have to be careful to get the facts straight, at least as they stand now:

    “While the IRS can add an Obamacare penalty to the balance of taxes due, the law does not give the agency power to go after taxpayers who fail to pay the penalties.”
    http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/the-best-life/2013/09/23/countdown-to-obamacare-the-penalties-for-uninsured-americans

    “According to Forbes, the IRS cannot pursue you for criminal tax evasion if you refuse to pay the mandate penalty, and no tax liens will be imposed on your assets for the penalty amounts.”
    “It is still unclear how aggressive the IRS will be in collecting the Obamacare penalty. But uninsured Americans who are expecting money back on their returns may find a penalty-sized hole in their IRS refund checks.”

    Hey All,

    RMinNC:

    I am embarrassed to have to correct a retired Officer, beings how I’m JUST a retired NCO, but you commented at 2:22:

    “So much for Democracy.”

    We were NEVER supposed to have a “Democracy”. Our Country, and I believe you know this, was founded as a REPUBLIC, which means we elect representatives and they do what is BEST for the WHOLE of the Country.

    A law is passed by simple majority, but if it isn’t agreed upon by BOTH the Legislative and Executive Branches of Government, then the Executive Branch can veto the bill, send it back to the Legislative Branch and they can override the veto with a 2/3 majority vote.

    This comment is written with all due respect, Sir.

  48. Interested Bystander

    I would also like to point out that our Government consists of three EQUAL Branches of Government.

    The Judicial, Executive and Legislative Branches are supposed to be equal.

    Over time, and with the creation of so many “Departments” (who the President appoints the heads of ,with approval of the Senate), along with the use of Executive Orders and privlidge, have given the President more power that the Constitution allows.

    I wonder if this is being taught in our schools?

    I doubt it.

    What is being taught is:

  49. CABBYAZ……good afternoon

    Yes I know what the law says and you are correct in your post….I was only repeating what Mr. Sheehan said happened to him in the email he posted……

    As you read in my post, I also noted what the “Law” said the IRS could and could not do…but that was not what the IRS told Mr. Sheehan in the email he posted online.

    If this actually occurred as he stated….then the way the “Law” is written, and the way it is too be enforced are two different things according to the rogue IRS…..

    It would be helpful if we could see the actual email this individual received and the originating source it came from….in fairness to Mr. sheehan, he did post a copy of an email along with his post.at Drudge Report..it appeared to be a valid email…….

    As I said in my post…either Mr. Sheehan is lying…or the IRS is lying…..but with the record the IRS currently enjoys with the American people….I find it hard to believe Mr. Sheehan is fabricating his claim ……….

    That doesn’t leave many other choices in reference what Mr. Sheehan says. As you also said, time will tell as to the REAL course of action the IRS will actually take to enforce the law

    If the IRS can only hold a tax refund due from individuals…I don’t think that will be enough to force compliance to this law., if not I would suspect they will find other harsher means to bring the people into compliance..

    No problem Sergeant…I would gladly take the blame if you were correct in what I said………..but friend , believe me, you are preaching to the choir…

    Please go back and read my post closely…especially the part where i said,
    “Are we now living in a country where the Russians, with their communist form of government, now have more liberties and freedoms than our democratic REPUBLIC enjoys?”

    I did say. democratic REPUBLIC…

    The last sentence I posted to my blog was a JAB (pun) at our current form of government……you can rest assured my friend, that I know the difference in a REPUBLIC and a DEMOCRACY.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention…perhaps in the future I should make my points a little clearer.

  51. CW Are Obama’s CZARS on furlough? If not ,why NOT?
    Waiting reply.

  52. IB…

    In my last poast you said that you were “embarrassed to correct an officer since you were only a retired NCO”…..you should not feel that way as a retired NCO

    In fact, the happiest years of my life in the Army were spent as a young “buck” sergeant with the 11th Airborne Division in Germany during 1956/58. Jumping out of airplanes was a lot of fun and the weekends were great as a single man….I spent 7 and one years as an enlisted man, starting as a private and ending my enlisted experience as a Staff Sergeant,, before going to “Bennings School for Boys”…where they supposedly made me an officer and a gentleman…at least thats what they said they were going to do.

    Then the rest of my time in the military was spent serving in combat divisions as an Infantry officer…but I still think back to my younger years with great pride and a warm heart.

    I have always believed the non-commissioned corp was the “backbone of the Army” ……and I still feel that way today !

A very old, very tired, and very wise Benjamin Franklin replied; “A Republic, ma’am if you can keep it.” (Webster’s dictionary definition: a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law.) ”

    That was it………… “a Republic”. No adjectives. Just a Republic.

  61. AFB,

    Not sure I’m following you either. So if I call America a “Republic” and don’t preface it with “Constitutional” or any other adjective, am I incorrect? I hesitate to join this fray, but in reality, I think we are all pretty much on the same page. Don’t you?

    Take care.

  62. Philo-Publius

    U.S. Constitution, Article IV, Section 4 – Republican government:
    “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government…”

    “We may define a republic to be…a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior. It is essential to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion or a favored class of it; otherwise a handful of tyrannical nobles, exercising their oppressions by a delegation of their powers, might aspire to the rank of republicans and claim for their government the honorable title of republic.”
    – James Madison, Federalist No. 39, (January 16, 1788)

  63. Philo-Publius

    This is one of the most important facts about the Constitution which is all but forgotten.

    Didn’t mean to start such a debate, but RMinNC, I knew you knew, most Officers I knew were very much historians.

    Just a quick run down,

    My MOS was 11 series. I was 11C when I enlisted, and switched to 11B.

    Leg units my whole 20 years.

    And I just never understood why someone would want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane (like you haven’t heard THAT before).

    I was a reservist for my whole 20 years also. I was in a training unit and our mobilization station was Ft Benning GA.

    I was a Drill Sergeant for 8 years of my enlistment, and mobilized to Ft Benning, Ft Jackson, and Ft Dix over my DS days, and then I became the Training NCO, which I’m sure you are familiar with.

    I retired as an E-7 SFC, and my ETS date was Sept 11, 2002, one year after 9-11.

    And I’ll just be totally honest, I got out because I didn’t want to be called up. I saw the writting on the wall, we hadn’t started with the war on Iraq, and I had served my obligation to the contract I signed.

    I’ll also state that the biggest reason I stayed in for 20 years is because medical coverage was a part of the retirement plan. If I stayed in the reserves for 20 years, when I turn 60, I will start getting a pension and will be eligible for the VA medical program.

    What a waste of my time, because now it sure does appear that we will have “free” healthcare for everyone by the time I reach 60.

    I’d also comment that the last two co workers I worked with BOTH got “handicap” checks from the Government from their 4 and 6 years of enlistment.

    One had a truck run over his foot, and was deemed handicapped, and the other broke his arm while on a run and gets a Government check each and every month.

    Neither appeared handicapped, and both performed their jobs without any assistance.

    In other words, they weren’t actually handicapped and yet THEY collect a check each month, and I spent 20 years in service and have to wait until I’m 60.

    It just doesn’t seem right.

    Good nite all.

  68. SUEQ…………BINGO

    you said, “I have heard it called a Democratic Republic, a Constitutional Republic and a Representitive Republic. It is a Republic”

    I will echo your statement.

    You are absolutely correct lady…That’s what Ben Franklin said after coming out of the meeting in Philadelphia and a woman ask him….

    She ask, “What kind of government do we have”?

    Franklin replied…”Madam, you have a REPUBLIC, if you can keep it”…I don;t recall Franklin saying a Constitutional REPUBLIC or a democratic REPUBLIC….he said, “Madam, you have a REPUBLIC, if you can keep it”.

    All the adjectives were added by people like me and others…haha

    GINGER…I would agree with you if our REPUBLIC followed the CONSTITUTION in making our laws, unfortunate it doesn’t and hasn’t for some time now………example,… Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5….. which has been totally ignored in today’s politics.

    If this clause of our Constitution had been obeyed in 2008 and 2012, things would be different today

    If our CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC had obeyed this important part of the Constitution,, our country would not be in the mess it is today……….so I find it very hard to admit we NOW have a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC……

    Like SUEQ…I will admit we have some form of a REPUBLIC… but, I’m not sure exactly what kind of Republic we have… since we seem to ignore the Constitution in almost everything our government does now days.

    .

  69. INTERESTING BYSTANDER…..

    I’m sure many people have told you this, but let me say it too….THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE………..and something told me you had an Infantry MOS…….

    I’m sorry you had some lousy Commanding Officers to serve under…but the Army just don’t make them like they use too…..

    And I would also agree with you on this point…I don;t think I could, or would serve in today’s Army……there once was a time when the Army “took care of it’s own”…those days are long gone…and I’m afraid forever….too bad.

    Being from the “old brown shoe” Army, I can say there was a ‘comradeship” which money couldn’t buy that we shared which seems to be missing in todays Army.

    I do not fault the common soldier for this, but I do find the senior officers are responsible for this lack of personal concern for the men they so quickly send into battle.

    Again. let me say Sergeant…thank you for your service…and I think we are on the same side and have been for a long time.

  70. As George Burns use to say as he signed off every week on this television program. He would look at his wife and say, “Say good night Gracie”…….Gracie would smioe and say, “Good night” and all was well.

    So, I too will say….”Say Good night Gracie”!…and put it to bed.

    It has been an interesting and enjoyable day. There is nothing like stimulating conversation to keep the brain working as it should.

  71. pardon the typo…should have been smile……

  72. Good morning CW et. al,

    I have heard and read several comments from the news media and other various outlets that are blaming this shutdown due to Obamacare for the simple fact that Obama is “Black”! Some calling it racism. That is simply pathetic. I am so tired of hearing the race card B.S….

    Perhaps they need to be reminded of some great wisdom…..
