    Re: IRS higher-ups requested info on conservative groups, letters show

    How close to home do you want it? I get hundreds of emails from the RWers I know almost all of them lies, the ones that arent outright lies are twistes so far the truth is no longer recognzeable. OK, how bout this one? Here is an example right on this forum, where an article is posted, the Poster says the article says something it doesnt, then the RWers mindlessly defend it. The list of RW lies is virtually endless, Kenyan President, no birth certificate, Fast and Furious was a gun grab scheme...and on and on and on...

    And some morons want an even larger IRS!

    It's time to cut, gut and slash the beast, and the best way to do that is to reduce our taxation forms to beer mat size. This way the IRS will have ample time with the few remaining employees to address issues like tax exempt status... audits would take a fraction of the time... and there would be better accountability.
    It is called profiling, and yes it sucks when it falls on your group. However, the tea party loves it when they profile a muslim getting on a plane. they love it when Joe Arpio goes after hispanics in his area and demands their papers. They love it when cops stop and frisk every black man in the neighborhood because he might be selling drugs. Of course, they are the people who say taxes are wrong, and look at the IRS checking on them when they apply for a tax free organization to make sure they abide by the stricter rules of those oprganizations./

    Oh, and those applications are voluntary and do not actually restrict a organization from operating as a 501c4 during the time while the application is pending. I just figured I would add some facts and reality to your partisan hackery.

    What facts? The only supposed fact in your post is regards operating as a 501c4 while the application is pending. That's, at best, a half-truth and very misleading at that. One cannot advertise ones' business as a 501c4 unless one is a 501c4. An organization cannot even plan a budget until they are sure they are a 501c4. Tax-exempt status is granted. Not assumed.

    Every day or two this IRS thing goes up the ladder another rung. Not many steps left to reach the top.

    So your proof is ****ing emails? Cmon. Emails are full of **** almost on principle. And not just about politics.

    No, emails are good evidence in court.

    Very true. The problem here is that every instance of abuse recently uncovered rests within the Executive branch as the chief operator. Obama may not have had a hand in any of this, but he's certainly responsible for it, whether directly or indirectly. I would think Obama would like to show that he doesn't have a direct hand in any of it, and that requires that we know who did. This abuse of power is not a spontaneous event without cause. Somebody got the ball rolling.

    Maggie...not when they are anonymous.

    Tons of emails are circulated daily that are outright scams. Political scams included. Holding them up as evidence of right wing lying is about as good for source material as a Nigerian email is for investment advice.

    Emails don't have to be anonymous. There are ways.

    I agree with you that an anonymous email is the stuff of lies . . . or fear . . . regards this particular issue.
