Well said slabside.
How anyone could still stand behind the joke in the WH after the cover-up of Benghazi of 4 defenseless murdered Americans, the lawless targeting of political opponents referring to them as terrorists, corrupt crony capitalism, or while opening the WH to illegals - speaks VOLUMES to their mindset.
Mike M's myopic, one-dimensional views will serve him well in the banana republic what CHANGE is really about.
If these things are all we know about these corrupt Chicago thugs, imagine what we don't know.13 hours ago
Just love it, don't you Rich? The understanding I have about people pulling together have nothing on Mike M on some "cherry picked" stat.
No, open, there is a VAST difference between the people of Oklahoma and the press' treatment of the Katrina or Sandy tragedy.
First, because the Democrats never lose an opportunity to over-inflate social justice. Secondly, choosing to live in a hole by the ocean bound to flood is no different than living in the midwest where there are tons of tornadoes.
What you missed is one GIANT difference - the attitude of the PEOPLE and what they expect. They are self-reliant people, a red state always, and the last thing they want is the corrupt media and the corrupt Obama administration in their backyard - they aren't welcome in Oklahoma.

A nonsensical response to mine. Phony global warming statements have nothing to do with what I'm telling Willie.
The problem is AZWillie you couldn’t possibly understand Milone’s thinking in his letter, because you can’t possibly relate. What I believe Milone is referring to is the megaphone of the press during Katrina, the outpouring of sympathy, supplies, and government funding – same with Sandy. In Oklahoma there wasn't a peep – why is that?
I can tell you why.
I grew up in Oklahoma – the people are the backbone of America. The state is overwhelming red – I don’t recall an election that’s ever gone Democrat. The reason is the people in Oklahoma are self-reliant; established long ago when the pioneers rushed the Oklahoma land. They rely on each other, and pull together at times like these with the churches, and communities, and don’t EXPECT or WANT the government to pay for what they consider their responsibility.
Ah, personal responsibility; a long ago forgotten term in America.
You live inside a prism of “Republicans bad – Democrats rule” or the ridiculous notion that people should be paid “fairly” which in your world translates to an uneducated labor union line worker making $100k a year, retire in their 50’s with pensions worth millions – completely unrealistic, business killing model, that is unsustainable in a global economy.
The greatest form of control is where you think you’re free when you’re being fundamentally manipulated and dictated to. The Obama administration is as corrupt as the last 5 administrations combined – the rule of law is completely disregarded by these crooks.
You’re the idiot – not Milone.
The obvious stated very well bluepoet.
Rather than carping at each other maybe a better idea would be to forward new ideas or approaches. With what's happened the last 10 years - I'm not sure that our best days aren't behind us. The incestuous relationship between the Fed, Wall Street, and Washington has completely broken the American system - whether Democrat or Republican - over three decades and the only way out of this mess is a return to true free markets; not the phony crony capitalism that exists today. Fat chance when our borders are about to flooded with new citizens and a lawless government rules. Banana republic here we are!Yesterday
Couldn't possibly be because your articles aren't worthy of posting - either one of you? Liberal claptrap becomes boring when people see how phony and contrived it really is.2 days ago
A George Soros sponsored site is proof of what? That's okay to ILLEGALLY target groups that disagree with you?
The Tea Party is nothing more than a group of people that have had enough of Washington and Wall Street corruption. What they are NOT is a fad.
Further, if you tried to understand the issue better than you do - it’s ILLEGAL for the IRS to target politically opposition. Their only job is to interpret the law. Singling out the Tea Party is as illegal as it gets.
Spreading lies about Obama? There’s nothing TRUE about the man.

retiree - Your understanding tax-free status is seriously misinformed. Go to www.irs.gov and read about IRC section 501 (c)(4).
The groups that were targeted were completely within their right to do what they applied for - the rules have been around for years.
Obviously you missed the part of America's history that there was a reason for the separation of church and state. It was for people like you and the current resident of the WH.

cerulean - Agreed that Wall Street shouldn’t dictate who gets elected, but how is that any different than Labor Unions funneling backdoor contributions to the Democrat party? In either case it doesn’t mean that you use the Big Foot of the IRS to get your way.
I don’t agree with any of the policies the corrupt Obama administration delivers– but does that make it okay to break the law because I don’t agree with it? Of course not.
Difference between you and I cerulean is I’m not swayed by the BS. What the Obama administration did – whether you’re willing to see it not - is likely criminal when you connive and manipulate – even harass and abuse people you disagree with.
But hey - that’s the Chicago way. What’s scarier is you buy it.

There you go again cerulean with your ill-informed attacks on a difference in your opinion. "The tea party deserves IRS scrutiny, they are all crooks!"
Please explain to me how it is okay to target and harass people that have opinions different than your own? Ever heard of the First Amendment? And how would you feel about it if the attack was on a liberal group?
Secondly, explain to me how the Tea Party are crooks. They are not - that's a propaganda job for low-information voters just like you. The Tea Party movement is about dismantling an inefficient, out-of-control, abusive government to one that the founders designed - this is hardly being a crook.
