So I'm guessing you're unable to find a link to where Attorney General Holder has
been convicted of perjury, or where it has been established that there is an appearance that he has, so it's just a whole lot easier to call me a lazy faggot.
I don't blame them. I think there were probably a of other ways they could have tracked weapons. I'm pissed about it too. It was an ill-conceived program that never should have been launched, and it should have been shut down.
That being said, my belief is this is a partisan attack on Holder because he is launching all sorts of investigations into voter supression, as in Florida. He's being targeted for partisan reasons. The GOP found something he might possibly (and that has not been established) be a bit vulnerable on, so they are turning into something to try to topple him. Which really does no good to the victims. Best to make sure these programs don't happen, but the way our government's bureaucracy is set up, they probably will.
I hear that from many Independents. A lot of them tell me they aren't always on the same page with Obama, but 1) they love Hillary, and will vote for Obama to ensure that she wins in 2016 and that 2) they are ashamed of how the Republican party behaves, and insulted that the GOP treats them as if they are stupid Tea badgers.
This whole contempt thing is a huge waste of time for Issa. In order to legally get what he wants now, that entire committee is going to have to present a compelling case that shows they absolutely without a doubt need those documents to do their job, which is not going to happen.
Too bad Issa isn't focused on the horrendous foreclosure rate in Riverside, northern San Diego and south Orange counties, or the fact that a huge number of his constituents are under/unemployed, or are under water with their homes, or gang activity, or white supremacists, or the poor quality of education, or the inavailability of mental health services.
Um, Hispanics are usually included in the "white" category. They are a minority, but not a race or ethnic group. About half the Hispanic population identifies itself as white. Most Hispanics are mixed race - Indian, Spanish, Caribbean, French, African, European...even Canadian and Asian.
Usually it is classified as "white, non-Hispanic" or "white, Hispanic" or Latino Americans".
I'll give you this - after looking more closely at the Bloomberg Poll, I noticed that they sampled more minorities than are normally questioned- usually it is about 27-29%, and the Bloomberg Poll used a parameter of 33%. This probably means the actual result might be a little lower, perhaps 2-3 points, or 50%-43%.
Then again, it may be an "outlier", one that statistically differs substantially from similar polls. Or it may show a big bump from Friday's decision, which most Americans support.
Sometimes sean and I post while we're working on papers, writing, doing things related to school. I also work from home 1-2 days a week, so sometimes I post intermittently while doing that. Yesterday I worked for about 8 hours, then worked on a legislative case study til about 4 am. Went to bed, got up, getting ready for work.
I can see why you'd make assumptions because it may appear to you that I'm on a massive posting marathon, but I only post here as a distraction when I'm doing something else.
