    “The IRS is investigating tax cheating by political groups”

    You really are a moron Jim if that’s what you think the IRS scandal is about.

    Wanting to pay as little in taxes as the law allows is “cheating”. Taxes are the tithes of the religious Progressive left. To not want to pay taxes is a sin against the beast.

    In the game, Dungeons and Dragons, a big deal is made of “alignment”. In one story line, a gov’t formed after the citizens rebelled against a dictator. Initially, it was a “Neutral Good” society – a society where the rule of law and the freedoms enjoyed by ‘chaotics’ were balanced for the good of all. Over time, the society became Lawful Good – where law and structure were enforced for the good of the majority, even if some freedoms were restrained. Then the society became Lawful Neutral, a society where the law/struture was more important than anything else. Then, the society became Lawful evil, where any abuse was permitted as long as order was maintained.
    Our own gov’t is flirting with these transitions. The Neutral Good society of our Founders has become a Lawful Neutral nation where ends justify means. But as the means become more malevolent, more intrusive, and less transparent, we see our gov’t setting aside the good gov’t can do in order to empower those with wealth and influence and our elected officials deceiving and dividing voters in order to turn them against each other instead of working together to create better communities. While we need tools to battle the enemies that face us on the internet and on battlefields, we need to remember that we are supposed to be the ‘good guys’. What’s the chance that we may, ourselves, become “Lawful Evil”?
    Roll percentile dice.

    And here I thought that government should not be partisan in its dealings with the populace. I’m certainly glad the IRS IG’s report is a fabrication that Obama forced the IG to write to divert attention away from Benghazi.

    Yet another of your excellent posts. I am not at all familiar of any of the details about Dungeons and Dragons, and appreciate your sharing this analogy.


    (And as to your ‘chance’, I’d pick any number between 0.99 and 1.01)

    The tax code does not allow political activity by a non-profit, taw exempt group.

    So, a group comes along, asks for tax exempt status, and names itself after a political movement. If you were a tax regulator, wouldn’t you look into the activities of this group to see whether or not it was legit? I would. So did the IRS.

    @twhalen

    Someone has misinformed you, twhalen. A 501c4 is allowed political activity and it is so specified under 501c4 requirements for exempt status.

    That is false. And anyways, they IRS has already admitted they were targeting groups based on their political views, not any evidence or suspicion of wrongdoing. But, there is absolutely NOTHING the Obamatons won’t defend, or at least try to blame on Bush and the GOP. Five+ years since Bush was in power, and you dimwits still can’t stop blaming him when your own Dear Leader and his cronies screw up.

    Chances? That’s what our government IS. Evil. Our government promotes terrorism, dictatorships, mass murder, torture, oppression, criminality, and all manner of abuses of human rights all over the world. At home, it has slowly and quietly become a totalitarian police state that only pretends to respect the rights of the citizens. Over the next few years, expect the velvet glove to come off and reveal the iron fist that was there all along.

    Funny that the supervisor who started the scrutiny was a Conservative.

    They also leaked IRS tax information to Obama’s reelection campaign.

    And finally, the hypocrisy and hubris of the left is made clear.

    How delightful that we dusted off our red baiting cold war cliches. Your hyperbole is precious.
