“The mania for giving the Government power to meddle with the private affairs of cities or citizens is likely to cause endless trouble, through the rivaly of schools and creeds that are anxious to obtain official recognition, and there is great danger that our people will lose our independence of thought and action which is the cause of much of our greatness, and sink into the helplessness of the Frenchman or German who expects his government to feed him when hungry, clothe him when naked, to prescribe when his child may be born and when he may die, and, in time, to regulate every act of humanity from the cradle to the tomb, including the manner in which he may seek future admission to paradise.”– Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835-1910)

As Obama continues to bounce the ball meaninglessly all over the court, leave it to a US soldier to get a slam dunk!
A Marine Corps veteran sent an unmistakable message this week, via social media, to the “cowardly” Islamic State terrorists in the Middle East: “You attack us and there will be no mercy. We will bring the righteous hand of God down upon you and crush you. ”
The powerful post has gone viral and was reportedly written by Nick Powers, identified as a Marine vet who served in Iraq by American Live Wire, in response to the beheading of American journalist James Foley.
“To all you ignorant Islamic extremist f**ks. As I sit here constantly hearing and watching you execute innocent men, women and children in the Middle East I chuckle. Why do I chuckle you may ask? Well let me explain something to you cowardice fools who think you are so tough behind all your propaganda videos. You are scaring a population that doesn’t know how to fight, you’re bullying the weak. You say Islam is the religion of peace,but since when does terrorizing the innocent and beheading men, women and children constitute peace? WTF? But keep in mind, what did Saddam’s troops do when we came rolling into town? They surrendered, twice… So all your empty threats of coming to America and raising your flag over the White House amuse me more than any of you sick, sadistic bastards could ever imagine or comprehend. In 2012 there was about 21.2 million veterans in the United States. Do you understand what that means? Let me break it down for you. That means there are literally millions of disgruntled, dysfunctional, pissed off veterans who have been dealing with years of abuse from their government stabbing them in the backs and having to watch their friends die because you Islamic extremist idiots can’t seem to act like normal human beings and stop terrorism and the violence. It’s one thing to take over an Islamic state, but if my memory serves me correctly, I’m pretty sure we plowed through Fallujah in 4 days. Better yet, it took us about month to control your entire country. At this point, with 13+ years of war under our belts, how long do you think it would take us to do it all over again? I’ll let you draw your own conclusions on that one. Do you really think you stand a chance on US soil? Do you really think it would be smart to poke that bear? Remember, never bite the hand that feeds you. Remember we are armed to the teeth in the US and I can promise you this… the Geneva Conventions will not apply to you. You attack us and there will be no mercy. We will bring the righteous hand of God down upon you and crush you. The ball is in your court now ISIS. We are more than ready to arrange your so called “meeting” with your 72 virgins and send you to your “prophet” Mohamed.” – Nick Powers
UPDATE: To all who read this and assume this is against all Muslims, I am sorry you are too blind to read, this isn’t against Muslims in general. If you feel otherwise I suggest you look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself one question, am I an extremist? You say Islam is the religion of peace, since when does terrorizing the innocent (beheading women and children, wtf?) mean peace? This is directed at all extremist, if this offends/makes you angry or think I am racist you are are probably an extremist…

Should a special counsel take over the Justice Department probe of lost IRS emails and the targeting of conservative tax-exempt groups?
Attorney General Eric Holder says there’s no need: his Justice Department is conducting a thorough and fair investigation.
But can the Justice Department be impartial in IRS probe of “lost” documents while, at the same time, defending the IRS in civil litigation over the lapse?
The question is raised in the context of a Freedom of Information lawsuit filed against the IRS by the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch. In what seems to be yet another about-face, Justice Department lawyers Friday told Judicial Watch the elusive documents may have been saved, after all, on some type of government-wide backup system from which materials are difficult to retrieve. So, on the one hand, the Justice Department is investigating the IRS. On the other, it is representing and defending the IRS.
IRS Manager to Justice Dept. lawyer (then working for IRS): “Be on the lookout for a tea party case.”
Republicans on the House Oversight Committee have found another supposed conflict of interest that they say makes it more difficult for the Justice Department to impartially investigate its sister agency: a current Justice Department attorney was himself, “involved in the IRS’s scheme to target conservatives.” They made that new allegation this week in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder.
