    I think MMA is Media Matters. They are biased, but I don' have a problem with them having tax exempt status (TES). Yes, FNC is Fox.

    I'm not a big fan of Media Matters or the MRC for that matter, but I don't have a vendetta against them.

    so a reporter who isn't a Tea Party member who wasn't there as part of the Tea Party but to report on the Rally pushed a guy in response of them kicking down a tent is equivalent to the tens of thousands Muslim extremist have killed

    If they sued the IRS for civil damages, who do you think pays? We the taxpayer do.

    Criminal pentalties, loss of job ok, but why should I and the rest of us taxpayers pay for civil damages.

    Yeah okay. Next time you go to get a driver's license - perhaps they'll put you off for a year and a half with demands for information that has nothing to do with what you're applying for which continues month after month after month until finally you're forced to seek legal representation that a few months later finally forces the clerk at the DMV to process your paperwork like she would have done months ago but didn't because she didn't like how your name rhymed with "achoo-y."

    We'll see how much "faux outrage" you have then.

    How silly of me!!

    There's absolutely nothing violent about chasing people off, destroying their belongings and attacking a conservative journalist

    the first reason would be wrong while the second would be very appropriate

    as a federal employee processing loans using tax payer monies, i was prohibited from reporting to the IRS those applicants whose financial statements data were different from that found on their federal tax returns. seemed like the wrong time to look the other way. ditto in this circumstance

    It's too bad you're not even well read enough to know how my "name", which, you know, is just an internet handle, sounds like. But that's beside the point, if your "hell" is being sent a lengthy questionnaire for some 2-bit political organization you have no real emotional attachment to, you should consider getting a life, or a job, or whatever to keep you better occupied. But hey, I was denied my driver's license until I got glasses because I can't see distances. I didn't cry and bitch about it. Can't say the same for the people who went through "hell".
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
