    Except that should a conservative call a liberal or liberals a-holes, there'd be hell to pay.

    Frankly, it's hard to differentiate them based on their extreme behaviors, don't you think?

    House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, drawing this newly-released document to the DOJ's attention. He concludes:

    While the Committee has not seen any evidence of a serious investigation by your Department, it is my sincere hope that in light of this new, strong evidence that you immediately begin aggressively investigating this matter or appoint a special counsel. The failure to do so will only further erode public trust in not only the IRS, but the Department as well.....snip~

    Where will Lois run and hide now? Isnt it great to know that none of her family or herself can walk around freely in the country anymore. That wherever she goes.....she has to live with that fear in her mind. Now that's poetic justice.
    This frames her 'frame of reference', if you will. Someone like this should never have been allowed to work at the IRS, given the amount of power and control it has over the tax payers. People working at the IRS should ideologically be neutral, seemingly almost by definition.

    It really goes to show intent or motive. It might also show incentive. Not good for her from a legal perspective.

    Didn't you once suggest that I was the hyper partisan one? Lol. Hannity was trying to make a big deal about this, but personally, I don't give a ****. Is it a surprise to anyone that Lois Lerner doesn't like conservatives?

    Why that's as shocking and surprising as Summerwind saying how much she dislikes conservative or how much she loves anything and anyone with a (D) by it/him/her.

    : Do you think that the atmosphere surrounding you where you work might have an effect on how you feel about things? When I was being interviewed by Human Resources prior to working for the corporation that hired me, my political leanings never once came up in the conversation.

    It's got to be toxic working in DC these days! As an example, look at what Obama is doing to the Generals in the military that don't agree with him - they just don't have a job any more, and most of them have been around long enough to have served proudly under both political parties! It has nothing to do with their ability to do their job - not any more! Now it's Obama's ideology that is the determining factor! Sad....

    Greetings, Erik.

    Yeah, brilliant you are not.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It ain't paranoia if they really are after you...
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Greetings, Polgara. Hope all is well.

    Yes, indeed. The toxic 'change' that Obama has brought to DC. Where partisanship over rules so many other more important things. Funny, didn't he claim that he was going to 'fix' DC? As in bringing a new civility, perspective, level of discussion to DC?

    Yeah, we add this to the other empty campaign promises of his. Don't think an honest word came out of his mouth.

    As they should way in the court of law, at least so I'm told, 'It goes to pattern'.

    I take it that you aren't a "big picture" kind of person. It isn't illegal to call someone an a-hole. It isn't illegal to be an a-hole or I would have been in jail a long time ago. Let me give you a hint, it isn't about name calling.
