If you watched some of the interviews from the people that were being intimidated, you would know that answer. You just want to spout all your junk over and over and over. I hope you have convinced yourself by now, because you haven't convinced any one else.

Lets talk about the IRS. Incontrovertable evidence???? Bull durum. The only applicant that was denied status was a liberal group. The number of applicants from right wing groups was huge compared to liberal groups. Since the IRS has been cut in funding and manpower in large amounts over the years-Mostly from cuts initiated by the Repubs(as was security funding for foreign embassys ) The back log was huge. Well, this editorial from MDS is as yellow as journalism can be. Incontrovertable-- Bull. So, has Karl Rove's group been on social items, well, no. But lets not dwell on breaking the laws because we know these right wing groups would never break the law for political advantage, now would they.

So I suppose the news about the IRS experiencing more cuts will not set well with centerish. Aww...

"Sen. Dean Heller said Tuesday he will seek to cut off funding for new (IRS) agents following disclosure the agency targeted conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.

"The bill Heller said he plans to introduce this week would serve two purposes. It would allow him to express his unhappiness over the IRS scandal, while also striking a blow against the Affordable Care Act that he opposes.

"Heller said the bill would refuse $440 million for the IRS to hire more agents to help carry out the health care overhaul law."

I wonder if Heller is adding a provision to stop the 40 Billion dollar subsidies for Big oil... They might need that with the sham of raising gas prices 60 cents in two weeks. Another responsible piece of legislation by dip stick Republicans. Maybe he could cut some more funds from The overseas embassy protection funds as well.

"Opponents of Pres. Barack Obama" from the piece. Sounds like primarily a political organization function. So these groups the "tea Party" types want a tax deduction...they want the rest of use to finance their political aims. I don't get to deduct a contribution to a candidate and what the "tea Party" types are up to is a distinction without a difference.

Dusty, you are something else. You parrot what libs say and you just chuckle?? What is "really" funny is that on almost all the topics, you bring it up time after time and most always first. Then, you don't remember and claim that you are just mimicking libs. You aren't, dummy, you are parroting yourself. Now that is funny.

A White House spokesman told reporters Monday that two senior aides to President Barack Obama knew weeks ago about a report by the U.S. Department of Treasury's Inspector General for Tax Administration about the IRS's targeting of conservative groups.

A California-based Tea Party group sued the U.S. Internal Revenue Service on Monday in what marked the first lawsuit to stem from an investigation finding the agency singled-out conservative organizations

Obama is Liar In Chief!!! His lies are catching up with him.. Documentation will be out soon showing he was behind all this IRS targeting. You can fool some of the people all the time but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

If they link Obama to this he could be impeached and very very quickly..

Veritas are you saying that the Democrats that are "Claiming" to be upset with the IRS will not be upset anymore if they find Obama is the culprit? Is that what your saying?

Obviously, billwillneverevergetit, your last sentence is absolutely correct. Veritas made no mention of what you stated in your first sentence. Stop making things up.

Statements by President Barack Obama

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."

"I will cut taxes - cut taxes - for 95 percent of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class."

"I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby."

There's more...

If somebody's opinions aren't your cup of tea, Veritas, then let them steep in them. (Puns intended.)

Your absolute disgust and disdain for others' opinions doesn't really win others to your point of view.

Unless disdain and disgust is the goal...then I'd say you're achieving in a mighty way.

What is it that DustOff says? "Winning hearts and minds?"

Are any in the Tea Party worth it to you, Veritas?

Missy 1 Obama was behind it all.. The truth is now coming out..

The White House Visitors Log reveals that President Barack Obama met with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) union boss Colleen Kelley on March 31, 2010—the day before the Inspector General's report says the IRS began its scheme to target tea party and conservative groups.

On yet another occasion, Kelley’s presence at the White House was followed shortly afterwards by the President issuing Executive Order 13522. A presidential directive that gave the anti-Tea Party NTEU — the IRS union — a greater role in the day-to-day operation of the IRS than it had already — which was considerable.

Since the IRS tea party targeting scandal erupted, Kelley has gone quiet.

Obama is into this up to his neck. Its all going to unravel..

A spokesman for U.S. automaker General Motors said the company paid no federal income tax for 2011 despite earnings of $13 billion since 2009.

"We did not pay federal income tax last year," said GM spokesman Jim Cain.

The Detroit News reported Friday GM earned profits of $1 billion in January through March but may not have a federal tax bill to pay "for many more years."

The tax-free years are the result of GM's stint in bankruptcy in 2009

Government Motors.. And their CEO is a friend of the Obamas
