    Its really amazing that the IRS admitted what it was doing and the process they used to do it targetted conservatives and somehow you cant admit it.

    Have a nice day.
    Like I said historical ignorance: England abolished slavery in 1834 but that act was just one of many over centuries that stopped slavery in much of the world BEFORE the American Civil War.

    The definition of "FAIR" as implied by your support of a single tax rate, zero deductions - doesn't quite fit the definition of FAIR that is held by a majority of people

    Your answer is a fine example of "closed-minded people" who hold tightly to certain beliefs all while denying the reality of the world about them.

    A classic example of moving the goal posts. Bureaucratic incompetence and corruption has little to do with the now well-refuted charges of political attacks on right wing groups.

    Which was the original claim.
    The IRS's apology is purdy solid evidence that they were doing something wrong. How can you defend these bastards?

    I think they were doing the right thing the wrong way.

    **** unlimited anonymous campaign donations.

    How much did Al Qaida contribute to Obama?

    I don't know and neither do you.

    Yeah, let's create a situation where contributers can be publically intimidated. That's what America's all about...right?

    So which do you prefer:

    Just let everybody have their nonprofit status with no scrutiny for fraud?

    Or the IRS spending millions performing non-invasive investigations of all applicants?

    You have declared any kind of "filtering" off-limits, so which of the choices above do you pick?

    Funny you should mention this.

    The way its going to work now is they can self determine in 120 days now and that status may be challenged on their income tax return in which case they can defend the status with an impartial arbitrator or judge. Im perfectly ok with that.

    As an aside, are you admitting this is in fact what they did? And are you now excusing this action?

    Just so we are clear on what you are saying.
