Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Democrats like Jaxopthalmoscope have no reason to expect scruples, standards of ethics or morals from his side. To them, those things are stupid. They only demand those qualities from the opposition.

They constantly lie and cheat with impunity. They never claim to be honest or virtuous and it seems, as such, none is ever expected from them, either from themselves, their constituents, or their cheerleaders in the press.

If anything happens with this, keep us posted.

Would he investigate with the same zeal as he is now. I, honestly, don't know. My best guess would be that he would with the prodding of the ranking member, but, HONESTLY, I don't know.

Back to the talking points.

"Obsessed"?

I'm concerned about a lot of things jaxspp. One of them is holding government accountable.

" We get it, you're obsessed with covering up for an incompetent administration". I can play that too, but it doesn't advance anything for anyone.

If this had been primarily Progressive groups targeted would Issa be investigating. Be honest with yourself, if you can.

Grasp, but you are also gasping.

Posted 324 days ago.

Yes, Free, we've got your pattern down. You are obsessed with the IRS investigation, and anyone not as obsessed with you must not be a patriot or a true American, and anyone who cannot see that this is the worst tragedy to strike America since the Civil War is obviously learning impaired. You, and only you, gasp that this might be the end of America as we know it.

There, have I captured the seriousness you are trying to convey?

"...You don't know that a crime has been committed, you are looking for a crime...." ~Jaxspp~

I'm not putting words in your mouth jaxspp, just stating the obvious. Based upon your statements of course.

You don't seem to want the congress to "look for crimes" when crimes have been reported by the people.

You shrug off felonious behavior by one of the most powerful civilian agencies in the country and make offensive comments about your fellow citizens trying to participate in what many of their polar opposites participate in freely without harassment.

"Tea Baggers" looking for tax exempt status? OK, you've made up your mind and there is no swaying you. You are what you are.

I don't fault you, you just, for some reason, cannot fully comprehend the concepts being discussed.

I'll state it again.

The federal government cannot impede a citizen, or group of citizens, in the lawful exercise of their rights as expressed under the Constitution.

Let's set this up. The exempt organizations division makes determinations as to exempt status based upon the applicant's reported activity with regard to political function.

There are many "Be On the Look Out", BOLO, terms and some are conservative and some are progressive.

The differential between the conservative and progressive applications pulled for scrutiny is suspicious to say the least.

Another differentiating circumstance is the length of time to get a yes or no, (if one is even given). If none is given then the applicant cannot appeal or make the appropriate modifications or remedy issues.

The worst, in my opinion, is the invasive nature of the investigations over reach into such things as the content of prayers, the text of every speech ever given at any function attended by the applicant, etc.

The facts are that the progressive groups BOLO'ed and investigated were not subjected to the ill treatment by the IRS. Either do it to all or do it to none.

Two Gonzaga students put on probation after fending off intruder with a gun! The mere sight of the gun made the six-time felon flee. The students were living off campus but the apartments were owned by the University. Their gun was confiscated.

Probation, schmobation. At least they're still alive. But let's see here, the bad guy got away, the gun was arrested, and the good guys were suspended.

The only person who got away clean was the repeat felon. So, what's the moral of the story?

1. Sometimes Civil Disobedience can save your life.

2. You should never Thoreau your life away just to obey a stupid rule.

"...The bulk of the records obtained by Judicial Watch consist of extensive materials from the IRS’ files sent from Lerner to the FEC containing detailed, confidential information about the organizations. These include annual tax returns (Forms 990) and request for exempt recognition forms (Form 1024), Articles of Organization and other corporate documents, and correspondence between the nonprofit organizations and the IRS. Under Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code, it is a felony for an IRS official to disclose either “return information” or “taxpayer return information,” even to another government agency...."

no "matter" who is majority

Posted 324 days ago.

Freeman

My point is this, I want the oversight committees, no who is majority, to do their job.

It is, apparently, Jaxspp's opinion that "finding" crimes, (otherwise known as investigating), is not the job of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee or any other committee that congress deems necessary to perform their constitutional mandates.

Plame was active and not outed.

I don't think they'll need to spend that much to nail the IRS.

I think the Whitewater issue was an over reach by the committee.

The IRS scandal 500 times worse than any of that nonsense.

"When Waxman was investigating the Valerie Plame "outing" the left was demanding heads...for a retired operative that had been outed LOOOONNNNGGG before. "

You want to post a link to that?

Freeman

She was not publicly outed....

Posted 324 days ago.

You don't know that a crime has been committed, you are looking for a crime. And you might find one, no matter how many millions of taxpayer dollars it takes. The GOP spent 100 million dollars looking for one in Whitewater, I'm sure they will do whatever it takes here.
