    Lucky for you, the IRS didn't decide to make an issue of your return. A person could retire on the money I have spent over the years dealing with the IRS.

    I'm with you on the deductions. California would implode faster than it is now if changes in mortgage interest were pushed through.

    Yes, and I qualified with "to my face." This marks twice that I've happened to have been standing in front of a TV and have heard a President lie and thought, "Why, my President is lying right to my face."

    The state-run media? What? Is that how the news was made public?

    I'm no Obama fan, but I'm glad he made a statement.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    I agree with anyone who thinks that what happened was wrong. All I'm saying right now is that at least Obama's words were correct. It remains to be seen what becomes of those words.

    Are you saying that the Administration just leaked this now because they wanted to distract from Benghazi? That just seems like f-ed up logic to me. "Don't pay attention to my bad decisions which weren't criminal. Instead, focus on these allegations that are!"

    (I'm not saying that is what you're saying, I'm just wondering)

    the news was made public because the IRS admitted doing the profiling in a public speech it couldn't be hid any more
