    I don't understand really. The IRS should be owned and run by Congress, it really is not meant to be a political institution; just the tool Congress uses to collect taxes as Congress has power of purse.

    So you understand the seriousness of these allegations.

    You want to know how serious of an issue this is ?

    Just look at how fast the left wing Obama apologist run into these threads.

    I mean honestly, if you want for whatever crazy reason, to get Pete into this forum, just start a thread on the IRSs targeting of Conservative groups.

    Looks like there's at least one federal judge who agrees with you.

    Do you realize the IRS is supposed to be non-partisan, right?

    Why would she be worried about Republicans?
    By definition, Republicans aren't non-partisan. By experience, we know they will attack and destroy anyone who they can to get what they want.

    As do progressive dingbats. Pot meet kettle.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Thanks. That proves my point. Lerner is telling the staff to be careful, i.e, don't give the Republicans anything they can distort.

    Thank Goodness there is at least SOME check on this band of arrogant liars and criminals.
