    They didn't. Crossroads GPS was never approved. The law allows groups to act like they've been approved for 501(c)(4) status before they've been approved. In fact, Priorities USA never even applied for the status.

    Because the method of profiling didn't cast a net wide enough to get it.

    It'd be like a white muslim without a turbin getting past security that's profiling "for muslims" by specifically looking for people in turbins that look "middle eastern". Just because a white muslim makes it through doesn't mean that the profiling isn't happening.

    This is complete silliness, Cons... stop it and preserve what little dignity you still have.
    Democrats used the IRS to harass, intimidate and suppress the Conservative vote

    All of your whining and crying won't change that fact

    "It is well established that a witness, in a single proceeding, may not testify voluntarily about a subject and then invoke the privilege against self-incrimination when questioned about the details. See Rogers v. United States, 340 U.S. 367, 373 (1951#. The privilege is waived for the matters to which the witness testifies, and the scope of the “waiver is determined by the scope of relevant cross-examination,” Brown v. United States, 356 U.S. 148, 154—155 #1958). “The witness himself, certainly if he is a party, determines the area of disclosure and therefore of inquiry,” id., at 155. Nice questions will arise, of course, about the extent of the initial testimony and whether the ensuing questions are comprehended within its scope, but for now it suffices to note the general rule."

    And let's not forget the poor guy that accidently let the grains his wife collected for bread making get ruined by rain. They fermented, so we have him to thank for the first whiskey! First time in history grains became as important as hunting! Good man!

    Good Afternoon, Jack!

    Separating poisonous from non-poisonous would have been trial and error, I suppose, and courage as well as curiosity would have been required. Happy Friday, ocean.

    Exactly, trial and error. Can't say I'd be ready to sautee some more while viewing my dead friend next to the table.

    I trust all is well with you Jack.
