As we said last night the government has to be open about what is going on.
I get that the government isn’t open about practically anything, but in this case there is little room for the normal bureaucratic stupidity. We need to be informed and our officials need to put aside the politically correct niceties and get very real.
By the way the Dow is down almost 250 points right now.

Both major parties are corporatist parties and both have been for a long time. But Dems seem to be signalling that they are interested in cozying up even closer to crony corporate America.
You have to hand it to the administration. They have obfuscated and generally played the “time game” with all sorts of things quite effectively. This scandal. The Benghazi scandal. The IRS scandal. I’m probably missing a few.
These are prime working years. This is clearly an indication that something is very amiss in our current economy.
A lot of people don’t like Grover Norquist. Some progressives absolutely despise him. I like him and have since I was a kid.
He is a practical and adept political animal. But his drive comes from (it seems to me) core principals. Ideas are what move him forward, not an unbridled and unprincipled quest for power in and of itself.
This is a partisan bit of analysis from The Weekly Standard, but I think it is fair. For how the GOP works against the interests of the people just see the post prior to this one.
Of course the new Attorney General I am sure will be a champion of human dignity, freedom, honesty, rule of law, and “good government” just like Eric Holder was. So it ain’t time to party.
But boy is it good to see this guy leaving the AG position.
The most transparent administration in American history.
You may not be able to keep it for long.
This is a disturbing report from Nicholas Quinn Rosenkranz at The Washington Post.
He says that the IRS has a “tripwire” it uses to identify groups which teach the ins and outs of the US Constitution. These groups then get extra scrutiny from the agency.
