    Re: Acting IRS commissioner resigns in wake of agency scandal

    Actually, TPers aren't really opposed to a low tax, limited government, pure free market world. They just claim to support those things because they're just parroting what Limbaugh told them. They don't know what it means.

    But it's brutally obvious that TPers don't want a pure free market country, because in such a system, there would be no hiring laws--in accordance w/free market principles, the gummint could not ban any company from hiring whomever they wanted, including overseas labor. And, of course, the TPers are opposed to that because, aside from racist/bigoted, most of them are manual laborers and couldn't hack it when their jobs are taken over by guest workers.

    And the TPers just aren't very marketable by themselves in the world, which is why they constantly bitched about the fact that Obama didn't create jobs for them, whereas pure market advocates never blame their government for not having a job, because in a free market, that's not the government's responsibility. But the TPers need their welfare/unemployment checks.

    The people who actually support limited government, reduced taxes, etc. are Libertarians like me. Unlike the bigoted, trailer park dwelling TPers bitching about Muslims, Latino immigrants, we Libertarians welcome anyone into the country who is marketable, i. e. who is willing to work for what an employer wants to pay--that's free enterprise.

    And unlike the TPers, we are opposed to the feds wasting billions of taxpayer dollars starting useless wars and funding other governments. The TPers, OTOH, support these things because Rush Limbaugh told them to.

    The growth in power of Public Employee Unions, and the resulting decimation of Federal and State coffers since, should be a great concern to all.
    Unions do not prevent employers from hiring anyone they want; no one is ever forced to sign a union security agreement, contrary to what rush limbaugh told you.

    With all the words you post, I'd think credibility would be important to you...

    My opinion is not set in stone on this issue, as I only know the basics.

    Very interesting union angle on this.
    an interesting union angle?
    there is no union involvement in this matter
    you are looking for a conspiracy where none is to be found

    but prove me wrong and show us the union's involvement in this irs matter

    If you want to be overtly political, perhaps you should not apply for government welfare.

    A union security agreement is a contractual agreement, usually part of a union collective bargaining agreement, in which an employer and a trade or labor union agree on the extent to which the union may compel employees to join the union, and/or whether the employer will collect dues, fees, and assessments on behalf of the union.

    How do you know there's no union involvement? I'm not looking for anything. I only commented on the article's premise. It is you who lost their cookies, and started banging the drum about what was and what wasn't.

    Those words only have relevance to Libertarians. TPers don't know what they mean. rush hasn't taught it to them correctly.
