    Why is ALEC granted tax free status?

    So does this mean all those right wing tax cheats get off Scott free now?

    Fair is fair, the left wing tax cheats have been getting off Scott free for years.

    There is no god at all. “god” is an invention of people who lack the knowledge to explain natural phenomenon. And if there was a god she would be black and she would be very angry.

    “Why is Media Matters granted tax free status?”


    The same reason why Media Research Center is granted tax free status.

    I have found the IRS to be quite pleasant to work with. It is the laws passed by Congress that are hard to take and riddled with mistakes.

    Yes, why?
    .
    Another post from the Daily Caller, this one focused on the tax status picture for the organization in light of recent developments:
    Critics also point to Media Matters’ still mysterious calls and meetings with White House officials, which could prove problematic if the organization is privately sharing information with President Barack Obama’s staff.
    “If a section 501©(3) organization is privately providing to the Democratic Party information for their use in their political activities, that’s a contribution to the party. Maybe not for FEC [Federal Election Commission] purposes, but certainly for IRS purposes, and would violate their 501©(3) status,” one tax law expert told The Daily Caller.
    “If, on the other hand, they are compiling information and publishing it for anyone to use, including the Democratic Party, that’s a different thing.”
    “But if they are privately providing something of value to the Democratic Party, that’s a revocation issue.”
    It sounds good, but the rest of the article goes on to say that it’s not likely MM will actually lose its tax status. The law is apparently too vague and hasn’t been tested very often on this issue.
    I had a conversation the other day with a well known conservative who runs a 501©(3). His take is that anything used against Media Matters would likely then be turned on similar conservative organizations. In other words, this may be a new front in the political war that we don’t want to open at this point.

    I do feel sorry for you. It must be sad to live in cloud cuckoo land, with a fake hope to blight living a real life in a real world.

    @Ms. Ima

    Let’s not name call and give them the wrong impression of what a true believer is. Yes, it is sad that many people continue to reject God who can help and take care of you.

    @Clark Kent

    Clark, why not believe in something you can fill your life with and believe will be great instead of believing in nothing besides taking chances that may leave a void. Because I believe in God does not mean I do not believe in the creation of things. There are too many beginnings that cannot be explained. Something created the atoms and amoebas that began what you would probably say just happened.

    By your logic, who created GOD? Something had to, God could not have just sprung from nothing.

    , a gambler using Pascal’s wager, suggested: “Clark, why not believe in something you can fill your life with”


    I do, initially I tried Russel’s teapot but with the advent of Voyager probes, I switched over to the Flying Spaghetti Monster Church.
    Being a Pastafarian gives me direction in life, and my life meaning. Better than being an atheist, all dressed up and nowhere to go when I die.
