    You clearly stated that targeting was applied unevenly, and I was actually agreeing with you. Jeez!

    Yes, I get that. I was just pointing out it was unclear without the bolding.

    Don't lump me in with whatever group you think I belong to and hold me responsible or ask me to answer for what other people do.
    You seem like one of those partisans that bends over backwards claiming how non-partisan they are, while being partisan. If my impression is wrong, then I apologize

    I've made my position clear on this issue, and I don't discriminate between liberals and conservatives or their political groups
    right, you just seem intent on focusing on the periphery tax designation issue

    Wasn't unclear to me at all. I knew what you meant. I bolded the part that was most relevant in my response. Again, I agree with you. We don't need to go to war here. LOL.

    Ok, but that doesn't change the fact that it was unclear to me, w/o the bolding.

    Honestly, why is that even an issue?

    I knew what you meant. I bolded the part that was most relevant in my response.
    and without that bolding it was pretty unclear

    Again, I agree with you. We don't need to go to war here. LOL.
    Who's going to war? All i did was explain why I thought your comment was unclear

    My comment was explicit as hell!! I am quite surpised that you are telling me you didn't understand it. Crap, I wasn't trying to make fun of you. I was friggin' agreeing with you, for Christ sake. When I post something, it is exactly as I state it. I leave the ulterior motives, and such, to the trolls.

    It's simple. The IRS should be cracking down on this practice. Most of America agrees money plays far too large of a role in American politics. We shouldn't be playing "my team vs. their team", we should be playing "citizens vs. corporations/billionaires". I'm far more offended that liberal groups were given a free pass than I am that Tea Party groups were flagged for review. This should have nothing to do with party politics.
    Don't you think the questions were too invasive?

    Why would the IRS care about what people prey about?

    If the organization didn't comply with the rules, then they should have been denied, not put on a shelf and asked questions nobody could answer just to delay the application.

    Do you not see that?

    Well I honestly didn't understand it prior to the bolding. I'm not sure what you want me to do about that or why such is even causing you issues here

    Crap, I wasn't trying to make fun of you.
    I didn't think you were

    I was friggin' agreeing with you, for Christ sake.
    Yes, I get that

    When I post something, it is exactly as I state it.
    Ok ...

    I leave the ulterior motives, and such, to the trolls.
    cool ....

    If they are doing politics instead of social welfare, then they need to be denied.

    That makes more sense.

    It does, but, unfortunately, there is a huge gray area in the law, and this needs to be addressed.
