Should add that farting around for two years over a 501 (c)(4) approval says a lot more about the applicant than the agency.
Hey, your HERO Obama states the actions of the IRS was inexcusable. You are chasing the wrong squirrels.

What is happening to our country? Gays, who represent less than 3% of our population, are trying to dominate our culture and society. Love whom you want. Love the one you’re with. People don’t really care. This is the message most people want to say but are afraid to because the LBGT (lesbian, bi-sexual, gay and transgender) community will verbally flog anyone who doesn’t agree with them. Between gay marriage, gay adoptions, forcing the Boy Scouts to admit gay scouts and scout masters, and lauding a rich NBA player for announcing he’s gay, the message is clear from gay America to the 97% of the rest of us. You will accept our lifestyle as mainstream. My response:'No I won’t.'"
You WILL accept gays and lesbians marriage. And if your pastor refuses to marry Gay or Lesbian couple the pastor will be thrown into FEDERAL prison.

Soon, you will see priests and pastors in jail for refusing to marry gays and lesbians.

Liberals will enjoy and applaud the government that does that in a fair and just world!!!

Hmmm, according to IG this is not true as there was different actions taken. So now the IG are liars too?

That is the one of lamest insults posted so far today.
The elitist dems put down blue collar workers after their wages are docked to pay for unions who in turn pays for Obama's elections.
Do you always bite the hand that feeds you?
One can see a real pattern here with any rightie bent twist and lie, tell us about all of the worker programs and bills to help women , the poor or anyone that the Republicans have ever initiated or approved? Also while you are at it why has every recession and depression in our history came after an eight year reign of Republicans?

Obama and the Democrats have hijacked and perverted words such as 'community' and 'compassion' for your neighbor, redefining them to claim moral authority for their desired government redistribution — extorting the earnings of one group to give to another. Under Obama, government dependency is honorable. Obama's vision of a perfect society is destructive to the human spirit. It is evil and wrong."
It is a fact that Conservatives are:

More charitable, more clean, more descent, more compassionate, more intelligent, more fair and more loving.

Liberals are evil, condescending, dumb, low information emotional welfare cases, more greedy, less compassionate, racists, women haters, animal haters, children haters, God hater, Jew haters, baby haters, less tolerant, etc.

It is a fact that Conservative cities are cleaner that democrat hell holes ghettos.

It is a fact that Conservatives know how to manage finances while emotional voting block pleasing, union pleasing government, Liberals.

You can expect Obama to be as forthcoming about the IRS scandal as he was with fast-and-furious an Beghazi. In fact he promised it.

I guess stonewalling and obstruction is his way of cooperating.

The law says "exclusive" purpose is social welfare. The IRS unilaterally changed the interpretation of the law to be "primary" purpose is social welfare. That in no way lets Rove off the hook, he's guilty of tax fraud and should go to jail.
I'm not sure what you mean__are you saying that American Crossroads, a pure lobbying enterprise, is a 501 (c)(4)?

The effects of the Citizens United ruling was far reaching.

Whatever__as time passes we'll learn that many of these local TeaParty and 9/12 groups are in default__just mutts looking to score donations from dummies.

<quoted text> No a flat tax will still require the IRS. The prebate goes to everyone for their family up to the poverty line. Every one gets it.
Still leaves half the population with no skin in the game and thus no incentive to control government spending.

Fair tax is OK without the pre-bate.

<quoted text>So the indisputable fact that Saddam not only had WMDs but used them on innocents and had the determination and capability to use them again when the world wasn't watching doesn't concern you?

How about the indisputable fact that he paid the families of suicide bombers to kill our soldiers?

Did you think Saddam was going to change just because the UN gave him a hard time?

If we had not taken down Saddam, whose problem would he be now?
Iraq would had fallen to Al Queda.

Al Queda would had secretly undermined and eventually eliminated Saddam, He was not radical enough, and Iran would had taken over Iraq.

Bush ONLY slowdown the take over because now Iran will STILL take over Iran, it is just a matter of time!!!

As soon as Iran really gets the nuke, it will behave erratic. I do NOT know if Israel will attack or not, but I do know that Iran will definitively take over Iraq.

The real pattern here is the left keeps throwing up Smoke Screens -let us overlook the false claim that emails were physically altered- trying lamely to defend actions that shouldn't be defended.

Real diss the working man
You posted a homophobic post directed to me

Who knows-including you, yourself-what you believe or stand for as you are chasing squirrels furiously trying to confuse reality -at least in your own minds.

Do you still say that the Boston bombing was a Tea Partier?

How does it feels to be wrong all the time?

It had already been founder that the depression was cause by you Liberals forcing banks to give our subprime mortgages to irresponsible Liberals like you that did not qualify.

You still believe Sarah Palin orders the shooting of Gifford, because you are Always wrong.
