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

Freeman - No one said it was a crime, just that they may not qualify for tax-exempt status under the IRS rule in question. The tea party can say whatever they want, and do. Their paranoid conspiracy fantasies are on display all over the place, daily, including here.

They [democrats] have been wrong on their fiscal policy.

They have been wrong on their foreign policy.

They have been wrong on their health care policy.

The country is a mess and all they can say is that "the stock market is up, record levels...".

Hmm, go figure. Uncle Sam has created a new bubble with monetary policy and now they can't bring themselves turn off the spigot.

$85 BILLION a month. Remember that number.

And a Fabian Society if you can't.

You've convinced me jaxspp, why hold the government accountable for anything.

It's pointless to expect that our elected officials and the civil servants obey the laws that they enact and are charged with enforcing.

Disconnected people...

"Mr. Franklin, what kind of government have you given us"?

The sky is fine, nothingburger with cheese. It's our American way of life that is falling. Freedom is falling. Of course, you're too stupid to see it. Blind in both eyes and a corncob in each ear.

"It has never been a crime or violation for American citizens to criticize government policies and it is not a crime or a violation to do so now."...."

UNLESS, OF COURSE, YOU HAVE "TEA PARTY" IN YOUR NAME.

"....NAACP President and CEO Bruce S. Gordon, told reporters, "Tax-exempt organizations should feel free to critique and challenge governmental policies under the First Amendment without fear of IRS intervention." He said the investigation was a cloud that hung over the group's activities, diverting resources from its principal mission of fighting racial discrimination. Bond added, "It has never been a crime or violation for American citizens to criticize government policies and it is not a crime or a violation to do so now."...."

Many on the right, and nearly everyone the left are simply unwilling to see what is happening via Marxist and Fabian Society type goals.

Who was the "father of Fabian Society? George Bernard Shaw. Could someone wake up, just a little...please?

"How is it possible that the United States government can build, implement and manage the most intricate surveillance apparatus in the world, using a complex array of computers to amass data on people not just in the U.S., but all across the world, yet fail miserably on a less complex health care portal, exchange or web site? Put aside everything you’ve been told by the government and the media, both proponents and opponents of the ACA, and think for yourself. Does this make sense? If you are being truly intellectually honest, you must conclude that it does not."

This article concludes that the failed website portals are by design, while the underlying law releases it's true villainy. It makes perfect Marxist sense. Whether you like candafreepress you have to conclude that what is said here, the questions asked, and the conclusions reached are very difficult to disagree with.

Compare that to what happened in the years leading up to the 2012 election.

Come on hville, the facts are undeniable.

"..Review of the Exempt Organizations Function Process for Reviewing Alleged Political Campaign Intervention by Tax Exempt Organizations describes a Political Intervention Project (PIP) established in June 2004 to Ò¦ast trackÓ referrals and prevent recurring violations by groups exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the tax code. A three-person committee reviewed the cases and decided which should be referred for further action.

Of the 131 cases the PIP committee reviewed, 10 were dismissed because they did not involve partisan political activities. Of the remaining 121 cases, the committee found that 80 warranted further investigation based on a reasonable belief that a violation may have occurred or that examination would lead to discovery of a violation. Of these 80 organizations, 34 are religious. The report found that slightly more pro-Republican groups than pro-Democratic groups were in the pool selected for further investigation..."

hville brings up the NAACP audit. They are a non-profit organization, correct? You can't have it both ways, TEA Party groups need to be probed but the NAACP cannot be?

The NAACP has had it's fingers in more elections over the last 30 years than any group I can name, how about you?

Have you actually read the The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration report that addresses this claim?

When an administration that can look you in the eye, time and time again and be misleading, you have to, at some point, wonder if they can be trusted with anything.

Posted 354 days ago.

Freeman

The only questions remaining are how high the knowledge of these actions goes.

Same with Benghazi. The truth was available to the administration and they CHOSE not to disclose it. They CHOSE to tell you and me a falsehood.

You can keep trying to sweep these issues under the rug but you are not doing yourself or your country any favors.

All we ever seem to get these days is excuse after excuse.

hville is regurgitating talking points used to justify illegal behavior.

Again, most entities are going to be investigated but most are not going to be anal-probed like the non-progressive groups were.

The standard employed by Lois Lerner with regard to non-progressive groups, "..NOT IN CINCINNATI..", is demonstrably different than that employed in the normal course of investigation.

To equate the two is not honest.

They have not been able to bring forward one group that was subjected to the same level of scrutiny that the conservative groups were. That's the problem.

The IRS is supposed to, as hville notes, investigate these entities who are seeking tax exempt status. I want them to do that, WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE LAW. There is the distinction.

What the IRS did to the conservative groups goes far, far beyond what they did to so called progressive leaning groups. Not even a close comparison.

hville, after Nixon's direction to the IRS to dig up dirt on his political enemies, congress codified those actions and they are now FELONIES. Tax payer information is NOT TO BE SHARED WITH ANY ONE, EVEN OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES WITHOUT DUE PROCESS. They would need a search warrant to be issued.
