The conspiracy mill is churning again. Thank you Mr. Weigle for once again putting the common mentality of the average conspiracy minded Republican on full, ugly, very public display.

"This LTE will now go to the data mining facility just opened in Utah."

Yes Greg, the letter you just sent to a US Senator may in fact be intercepted by the government.

Priceless.

There is no conspiracy, it is out in the open. You mindless leftists are just deaf and blind to the siren's song.

Mr.'s Shaman & Hayes, maybe instead of the ussual sarcastic comments you could refute Mr. Weigle's letter with Mr. Casey's actions you feel are positive for the people of this state.

Mr. Casey's (obvious...to Gregory Weigle) ability, to ignore any-and-all T-Bagger conspiracies, seems a fairly-reasonable start.

So ignoring something is a positive "action" in your eyes? I guess Libs don't expect thier elected representation to actually "do" much.

Senator Casey only pokes his head out when he needs votes.

Until then, he is absent.....but always a reliable vote for liberals.

So if a group gets together to declare " the moon is made of cheese " and a senator looks at all the information available, decides the moon is not made of cheese, then decides to ignore the issue, and focus his attention elsewhere, he is doing nothing?

Farmer, I do expect our elected officials to see all peoples/parties views and make reasonable choices that represent their district/state. I would hope they would not ignore any views solely based on party.If they do not find merit in someone's views I would hope they would give a public explanation.Honestly, you don't hear or see much from Mr Casey.

Sham and Hayes- I am truly impressed!! No mention of Sen. Toomey!! But, we know where Sen. Toomey stands on the issues because he's at least trying to make an effort to un-screw-up this mess these Progressives (both parties) have made of our country.

The only time I've heard of the former Wall Street lobbyist trying to do something to help average Americans, was when his name was on the recent universal background check bill that the Republicans filibustered.

"There is no conspiracy, it is out in the open."

It's not singular, it's plural. And because it's featured on Fox "News", it doesn't mean it isn't a conspiracy.

conspiracy: A secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful.

You know, like when a company gets busted under the Lacey Act for importing illegally harvested hardwoods, claiming that it's all part of a conspiracy to get them.

Or when several reporters get investigated after putting out stories that contain classified information, claiming there is a conspiracy against the press.

Or claiming that an NSA facility in UT, that's set up to intercept foreign communications, is really part of a conspiracy to target American communications.

Or claiming there was a conspiracy to "steal" the Presidential election.

To name a just few of the conspiracies that Mr. Weigle touched on hilariously.

Chayes - the company you are speaking about had all charges dropped, although they did pay a $300,000 "fine", which was far less to settle this dispute than what it would have cost. Both sides knew hey did nothing illegal this was about the Obama admin squeezing a company. "NSA facility in UT, that's set up to intercept foreign communications, (They are also set up to intercept and collect all communications from all Americans) is really part of a conspiracy to target American communications." Call it conspiracy if you will but it is a fact, move along nothing to see hear.

No actually it was about stopping the importation of illegally harvested timber, which in many cases funds terrorism.

It's great to see the owner of the company come out as a big Republican donor. Wouldn't that give some musicians that buy their high dollar guitars pause?

I just can't get over this back and forth from conservatives. One day the President is an idiot, and a "bumbler", the next day he's an evil super genius that is plotting revenge on all those wicked people that donated money to Romney. I wonder when he'll go after Marriott for putting Romney on the board.

I can't help but wonder why this type of revenge plot is always on Republican minds?

""NSA facility in UT, that's set up to intercept foreign communications, (They are also set up to intercept and collect all communications from all Americans)"

The tech at the facility can intercept calls from anywhere. The problem with Mr. Weigle's assertion, is that it's against the law for the facility to intercept American communications without a warrant.

From the IRS Inspector General's testimony yesterday:

"In addition, while we determined that the majority of the 296 potential political cases we reviewed included indications of significant political campaign intervention, 91 cases (31 percent) did not. Of the 91 cases, 17 involved Tea Party, Patriots, or 9/12 organizations. The IRS disagreed with this finding that the cases did not include indications of significant political campaign intervention; however, the IRS screeners did not document in the case files the specific reason why the applications were selected for further review and we did not find evidence in the 91 case files of significant political campaign intervention."....

...Also from the IG's testimony"

"Another area needing improvement is the screening of tax-exempt applications for potential political campaign intervention. We determined that the Determinations Unit specialists did not identify all applications with indications of significant political campaign intervention. As a result, these cases were not referred to the team of specialists for further review."

Ya think?

If you "need" conspiracies to spice-up your Life....get a subscription to The National Enquirer, and/or The NY Post.

Exactly. You'd expect all those Darrell Issa fans, out there...as-well-as fans o' the (U.S. Congressional) Republican Class Of 2010...to (at least) RECOGNIZE the process of "doing nothing".

Maybe there are too-many distractions, in D.C., to find the TIME to "see all peoples/parties views and make reasonable choices".

Contact Darrell Issa's office. I'm sure he could make the time to investigate this issue.
