It's apparent to me that most people in their 20s and 30s have little concern about what is going on in their own country.
Rep. Steve Stockman is revisiting a troublesome matter that recently riveted public attention, namely, the IRS targeting of conservative groups. "This case must be investigated fully, given admitted wrongdoing by the IRS, its potentially criminal implications and revelations the White House has been less than honest about what they knew and when," he says.
President Obama has learned nothing and forgotten nothing. In elevating truth-challenged U.N. Ambassador Susan E.

The London Guardian newspaper has disclosed that an order from the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in April has directed Verizon Business Network Services to turn over all its daily records to the U.S. government's National Security Agency during the term of the order, which lasts until mid-July.
Was the 2012 presidential election hampered by President Obama and the Internal Revenue Service unfairly delaying conservative groups' tax-exempt status and restricting certain conservative groups' agenda? From leaked conversations between Mr. Obama and his election-team staff, it's a known fact that Mr. Obama thought he would lose the 2012 election to Mitt Romney.
With time running out before state-based insurance markets begin enrolling applicants under President Obama's health care law, a group of small businesses wants a court to expedite its claim that the federal government cannot offer premium tax credits on the exchanges the government will set up in more than 30 states.
