    Some targets are more deserving than others.

    Let’s see, groups that say they hate government, clalim taxes are illegal, and/or say they refuse to pay them, and submit for “tax free” status, hmm, why would they ever warrant additional investigation on their status requests?

    Such an allegation would have to exist outside your bigoted imagination, face it these goons went after the Tea Party for critisizing their crooked agency and their crooked party masters.

    5 out of 5 chuckles on this one. Fun fact the guys who rewrote the and sanitized Obamas Lie Buzzword talking points on Benghazi are brother and a sister of the president of ABC and NBC go figure right?

    The increase of “issue driven” legislation groups like the ones filing for the new 501C designation created problems for the IRS. They apparently needed to investigate new applications to see if they were “political” or “issue” driven. On top of a doubling of applications for this status, the IRS decided to have all of these applications run through one office located in Ohio rather than spread throughout the country.
    Too much paperwork, too few workers, and a very small group of samplers. The IRS is also effectively functioning without a supervisor since the last one, a Mr. Schulman who was appointed under Mr. Bush, left last November.
    It is possible this was just bad judgement, or it could be a group of ‘loyalists’ who wanted to find something to use against the ‘other side’. If our legislators would work together in a bipartisan manner, perhaps gov’t employees wouldn’t be part of the Us vs Them attitude we see in the media and in forums such as this.
    The IRS abuse and the AP investigations seem on the surface to be the kind of big gov’t overreach Conservatives and Liberals alike fear. I look forward to the results of the investigations.
    Respectfully,

    Next up? The IRS and Obamacare. The “media” can be trusted to tell us all about the 17 new taxes that are penalties or is it penalties that are taxes. right? Or do they have another agenda.

    Why? Because Chairman Obama was reelected and the IRS did their job to assist.

    Okay, put your money where your mouth is. Find me a single TEA Party site that has in its charter that “hates government,” “thinks taxes are illegal,” and in turn “refuses to pay them.” Find it! I’ll wait.

    This one hits it on the nose. The IRS delights in finding the Honey Boo Boos of the Tea party and then hold them up as the representative of the rest of us.

    The government is wasteful and spends far too much time trying to equalize outcome rather then equalize opportunity. I think there are plenty of people that would agree with that assertion.

    Instead of scrutinizing that claim – The press (with a few exceptions) spend their time trying to make anyone that espouses that opinion appear to be fringe.

    We (The United States) spend too much money on: Exporting Death, Taking away liberty, Transferring wealth from one group to another, Trying to make people in other states do what WE want.

    Listen to the Ranting and Gnashing of teeth when the Sequester took away 2.5% of their budgets (Arguably the only spending cuts that have ever been successful.

    Converting America to Communism is their real agenda… We all know this.

    I would like to agree with your quote “leave everybody else alone” but when Republicans are in power they change their tune.

    How many states, last year, tried to eliminate or curtail abortion through laws that did everything from drive out doctors to forcing women to undergo invasive ultrasounds before they could EARN the priviledge of deciding for themselves whether or not they would carry a child to term.

    McCain and his War Pigs seem to delight in exporting OUR form of Democracy to countries that don’t want it. At the threat of bombings and drone strikes if they don’t accept it.

    The Republican party seems unwilling to bend on the drug issue and wants to enforce abstinence on everyone whether they need it or not.

    Unfortunately – the" I want to control how other people think and behave" is not limited to the Democrats. As a Republican, myself, I cringe when I see Fat Old curmudgeons from either party stand up and espouse how their parties use of the Federal government is good and just and the other parties use is evil.

    I don’t belong to the tea party but I appreciate any organization that is trying to limit the scope and reach of the Federal Government to the powers assigned to it in the constitution. But until we wean the US voters off the need to control how their neighbor thinks and acts we will be stuck with a bloated and out of control Federal government.

    Your supposed impartiality is fading when it comes to this obvious abuse of power by O’s Federal Government.
