    “O” meaning “Original”?

    Yes, of course this stuff would’ve never started under a Republican administration. Oh wait, that was how it started.

    As for the cartoon, isn’t Deering aware that Supeman has x-ray telescopic vision and super-hearing? If he wanted to spy on people he wouldn’t need to dick around with computers.

    That’s my argument when people try to paint this program as something unique to Obama, as Ima Chucklehead did above. I have no interest in defending Obama on this, if that’s what you’re expecting. I’d happily let him be replaced by someone who would respect the rule of law. But there’s no major Republican candidate who fits that bill and my guess is there never will be.

    The only group denied tax-exempt status due to IRS investigations during the Obama administration was a liberal group. It’s OK, that one flustered Karl Rove too…

    It started under a Democratic administration-Carter, 1978, Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

    Still waiting for just ONE example from the “hundreds” you stated were denied.

    At a certain point it cannot be blamed on ignorance, deliberate lies are what you tell.

    …and was greatly expanded under Bush. Both parties are to blame, but trying to paint this as a Democratic program is either partisan hypocrisy or just stupidity. (Or in Ima’s case, both.)

    I expect you won’t receive a truthful reply, considering the source. Only salivary foam.

    You do know where those expectations for an immaculate conception of truth will lead. Further whoppers of mind boggling deceit from ansonia.

    Let’s see a cite for that assertion. I’ve never heard of the IRS levying a fine or any other penalty for overpaying.

    If I recall correctly, Superman originally did not fight for “truth, justice and the American way”


    From my link above:
    "However, when the “never-ending battle for…” phrase originally appeared, it was in the popular Adventures of Superman radio series that ran from 1940-1951. It was not until the middle of 1942, with the United States firmly entrenched in World War II that the term “the American Way” was added to the opening of the series. But later in the decade, by the time the war ended, it was dropped once again.
    The phrase has become ingrained in the world of popular culture through its use in the popular Adventures of Superman television series which ran from 1952-1958, where it was part of the opening of every episode…
    …, and that has become the way the phrase has been known ever since (Christopher Reeve even explicitly says it in the 1978 Superman film). Now you know, though, that omitting “the American Way” is only taking the phrase back to its origins!

    In Action Comics #900 Superman announces that he is going to renounce his U.S. citizenship so that he could be a “citizen of the world” and not have his actions construed as being part of U.S. policy.

    No, I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s brother no more.
    Well, he hands you a nickel,
    He hands you a dime,
    He asks you with a grin
    If you’re havin’ a good time,
    Then he fines you every time you slam the door.
    I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s brother no more.
