    It sounds like you already have bought that bridge.

    Least bit relevant? Wow. You really don't get this topic at all do you?

    When you get off your "Impeach Obama" horse, we can actually talk about the subject.

    You are purely here for bashing. The fact that you think PACs are irrelevant to this is really just amazingly ignorant.

    Damn straight. More than a few 501(c)4s have been acting as PACs in blatant violation of the law.

    There's no law saying the IRS cannot profile. And the IRS profiles all the time. Having a home business gets you profiled. Having large foreign accounts get you profiled.

    After Shulman when confronted with the question of what he did when he visited the WH 118 times answered " The easter egg roll".

    Why the pretense ? Why not just explain that your'e irreversibly biased.
    That was in addition to making 'em repeat half of the questions they asked him.
    It was like Shulman was giving troll testimony.

    I've never claimed that I want Obama impeached, no not at all. He needs to stick around as he and his ilk are exposed for the frauds and criminals that they are.

    Yes there is law against profiling someone because of their race, CREED, color, RELIGION, or national origin.

    Exactly. The Tea Party movement was/is a mixed bag of astroturf and grassroots organizations. The Tea Party Patriots organization, for example, was/is undeniably an astroturf organization being funded and run by FreedomWorks. Yeah, I've heard the Tea Party supporters' annecdotes that they showed up at a meeting or rally organized by, for example, the Tea Party Patriots with random people who hadn't participated in politics before milling around, but the man behind the curtain was actually FreedomWorks.

    Astroturfing has serious implications for tax exempt eligibility and the frequency of Tea Party organizations masquerading as grassroots may explain why the term was placed on the IRS list. Of course, the rational explanation is completely ignored and people immediately start wailing about scandal. That said, it doesn't help that the IRS doesn't want to talk about it.
