Obama is a Chicago Criminal Thug and should be Impeached

Okay LT, I'll bite.

What charges would you impeach him for? I'm assuming you understand your Chicago Criminal Thug description isn't an impeachable offense, just a description. I'm not saying I do, or don't, agree with your call for impeachment; I'm just looking for clarification.

The whole idea that 501C3 have any business being tax exempt, is another reason this economy is in trouble. You show me where the TEAGAGGERS are providing Social Welfare to any group as stated in the tax exempt laws. This goes for all campaign organizations that apply. So by all rights the IRS questioning the TEAGAGGERS WAS LAWFUL.
I AM ABOUT TO THE POINT OF DUMPING MY 40 YEAR AMERICAN LEGION MEMBERSHIP OVER THE ATTACKS COMING FROM THE AMERICAN LEGION ON THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF. Funny you through so much support behind a mass murder like bush and cheney, both DRAFT DODGERS AS FAR VIETNAM IS CONCERNED

Bush’s use of the IRS was but one part of that larger assault, in 2005, Bush’s IRS began what became an extensive two-year investigation into a Pasadena church after an orator dared to speak out against President Bush’s Iraq War. Not coincidentally, the Los Angeles Times reports that the church targeted just so happened to be “one of Southern California’s largest and most liberal congregations.” That IRS church audit came a year after it launched a near-identical attack on the NAACP after the civil rights organization criticized various Bush administration policies.

I was going to let this go but then thought, "Why shouldn't I respond?"

40 years in the American Legion and the best you can do is stomp your feet like a little kid that declares, "I'm going to take my ball and go home because the rest of you don't want to play by my rules." Grow up! There is no rule, existing anywhere, that requires anyone to agree with you or anyone else. While you are completely entitled to run away like a little kid that can't get his own way, you need to understand that your running away won't change a single person's opinion about this subject or any other subject for that matter. Nor will your use of bold print make your argument any more impressive or convincing.

Run away if you want but understand all that accomplishes is your personal surrender and nothing else. Leaving the American Legion won't convince anyone that your position is the correct position or that others' position is incorrect. BTW the pot calling the kettle black doesn't make the pot any cleaner (IOW attempting to deflect the inappropriate illegal actions of this administration by attacking another administration does nothing to support your position or convince anyone of the fallacy of their position).

So, if you actually feel the need to throw away 40 years with this or any other organization because others don't, and quite possibly will never, agree with you about the current administration then by all means do so. However, don't think your threatening to leave (or even leaving) will win anyone over. All it will accomplish is your leaving and nothing more.

Bob, I love you. Your writing and logic is spot on. Keep it up.
