"It is all about avoiding taxes!"

++

Whereas lower taxes is a component, avoiding taxes is not. It is about making government smaller and less intrusive into people's lives. It is more about following the constitutional delegated powers instead of government extending control in to areas of people's lives where it has no business. It is about giving a hand-up to people that want it instead of a hand-out that creates a generational dependency on government. It is about preventing government from becoming God. It is about personal responsibility but also about personal involvement in providing charity to those that are less fortunate.

President Obama is not just using the IRS to harass his political opponents, he is using the DHS to paint those who protest big gov't as a threat greater than Islamic fundamentalists. President Obama has abused FOIA requests by charging fees to news agencies and organizations that criticize him while waiving those fees for groups who do not.

We now know that the Obama Administration has been collecting incredible amounts of information on every citizen, a practice he promised would never happen under his watch.

We also see that this administration illegally uses fake or private email accounts to conduct some business outside of the public's view.

Democrats and Republicans are having a tough time keeping up with the revelations. But congress must get a handle on this and reign-in such criminality or this nation may never recover.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A self-described conservative Republican who is a manager in the Internal Revenue Service office that targeted tea party groups told investigators that he, not the White House, set the review in motion....

Guess some on here blaming DC, the WH or others might need to rethink their attacks...

It was found out that a conservative Republican in the Ohio IRS office initiate the search.

Sorry but the right has no problem saying the left whines, the right whine about the whines.

So Tea party whining about not being perceived as good guys is okay, and a letter pointing out how they are not the good guys they think they are is a whine.

This coming from the guy who, just yesterday, is STILL whining about the 2000 election.

Do you think this moron in OH could have been told to fall on the sword? This admin is so out of control I put nothing past them. And the Ozombies just keep trudging along to their master's tune.

Instead of worrying about what political party is being persecuted, try getting the issues of Canton straightened out. I think there are bigger issues in Canton that have no political affiliation that need to be dealt with.

"It is more about following the constitutional delegated powers".

Blanket statements like this are frustrating. Tex, et.al., could you please provide an example, when you make a statement like this, of what constitutional delegated powers are not being followed?

"Come now, Mr. Reeder, if the IRS had targeted any left-wing group during the "Dubyah" administration, you'd be among the first to "whine.""

That's funny, because EXACTLY that happened when the IRS went after the NAACP, Greenpeace, and a slew of liberal churches during the Bush administration.

I sure don't recall Chuck writing any letters to the paper complaining about it. In fact, I don't recall ANYONE writing letters to the paper complaining about it.

Probably because the IRS is an independent agency staffed primarily with career bureaucrats.

"President Obama is not just using the IRS to harass his political opponents"

If the President used the IRS to go after his political opponents, he certainly wasn't very good at it erik. Only 298 groups, out of over 60,000 that applied for 501 status last year were flagged for "extra scrutiny", and out of those 298, only 96 were conservative groups. Also none of these 96 had their request denied.

What a bunch of poor sensitive people. I think Dr. Phil should host a special right winger month, where right wingers can come on and cry about how people "persecute" them by giving them funny looks when they wear their anti-Obama shirts in public.

When it is Democrat in the WH they are out of control but not when it is a republican in the WH.

The Tea party has been in perpetual whine since the beginning and haven't stopped.

"If, as you say, the Tea Party is its own worst enemy, so be it. Why does the Left fear it so?" - Ken Robertson

...Because, they're the same types (of easily-manipulated people), who were the first to join lynch-mobs.

Glenn Beck's shooters are a perfect-example.

DICK Armey...being able to convince T-Baggers that Wall Streeters are their "best friends", is another.

Why would a "A self-described conservative" do that? He testified under oath... he could be charged and lose his job and pension.

Not logical... to think someone would do that.

You might want to come up with something new.
