Pigs will fly, first.
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery.  But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes:  If you bleep with me, I'll kill you all.

I didn't enlist in the Corps just to watch my country become a Third World Communist Shit-hole. Don't know anyone who did.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Sure there is. Pour encourager les autres. Justice may take time, that doesn't mean it's not worth doing in a society based on the rule of law.

In a reasonably rational society, perhaps.  In this country at this point in time, doubtful.  By 2017 it won't be particularly sexy or politically beneficial to haul her into court.  I put good money on it never happening.

"What difference, at this point, does it make."

Ma'am. 4 people are still dead. If you can not see the importance - bleep off.

Jim Jordan is one of the most consistent, strongest conservatives in Congress.

I don't have much hope that what he's asking for will happen, but he won't let it go.

And he's YOUNG.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

True. But abuse of the IRS to harass political opponents was Article 2, of the Nixon impeachment charges.

Obama looks to be guilty of that. For today's bumbling GOP be able to prove that is another question.

Not that I'm even suggesting it would be prudent politically to pursue that.
