That is your viewpoint.

The law is they do have tax-exempt status and the IRS cannot target them for either their philosophy or political believes.

On the day the bill was introduced into the Senate that would eliminate oil subsidies, Mitch McConnell's campaign fund received over $131,00.00 in donations from the oil industry. Three days later the bill had been killed through a filibuster.
The truth is that the oil and gas industry receives the same kinds of tax treatments that every other manufacturing or extractive industry receives in the federal tax code. There is nothing uncommon or out of the mainstream of tax treatments about any of the provisions that have been repeatedly proposed for repeal.

So how did all of this misinformation get started? It all began in 2009. Within days of being sworn in as the nation’s 44th President, Barack Obama ordered his staff to scour the tax code for any provision that was relevant to the oil and gas industry, and promptly began proposing them for repeal. The oil and gas industry has always been an easy target for political demagoguery, and that dynamic has played out repeatedly and consistently in this Administration.

Unfortunately, most media outlets and reporters have chosen to basically repeat the Administration’s mantra that these tax treatments – several of which have been in the tax code for almost a century – are somehow unique, specific to the oil and gas industry, and are “subsidies” for “big oil”. A great example of just how inaccurate this depiction is applies to Percentage Depletion, which has been a feature of the tax code since 1913, meaning it will be a full century old this year.

Basically, Percentage Depletion is the oil and gas industry’s version of a depreciation deduction for its main asset, which is the oil and natural gas in the ground, commonly known as its reserves. Every industry of any kind is allowed a depreciation deduction on its assets under the U.S. Tax Code, but, far from being a “subsidy” for “big oil”, this tax treatment was in fact repealed for all integrated oil companies, i.e., ExxonMobil, Shell, BP, etc., in 1975, and is today available only to independent producers and royalty owners. So repeal of this extremely long-standing, completely common tax treatment would have no effect on “big oil” at all, and would in fact hit small producers and royalty owners harder than anyone else.

Offense taken. Especially since Realtime - who claims to have "set me straight" - apparently believes ALL black colleges in the United States admit all races.

Not to mention the number of times myself and others have had to "set him straight" on current events in just the past month.

So that would make you and Realtime dumb and dumber.

what i don't get is the wingnut refusal to acknowledge that there is nothing new going on. not our fault that people just expected Bush to do the same.

Do you think the IRS has the legal right to demand any organization to give up their free speech rights?

if it interferes with tax laws.....yes.

but i know how it is. Bush gave right wing churches a pass while he went after those that wouldn't play the war game, so i can feel your Obama pain.

what? like you thought that wouldn't change?

Libtard:

You did not answer the question.

Is that because you can't understand what you read?

Here it is again for your reference:

"It is illegal for the IRS to target them because they do not like their philosophy or political viewpoints."

The poster did NOT ask if you liberal morons thought they should be allowed to apply.

It is not your decision whether or not your Democrats can ignore the law, idiot.

You know what the IRS/Obama Culture is wrong. Stop being a deviant.

Yes, that's right. It was MLK.
Looks like too many liberals and too many blacks have guzzled down the cup of bitterness and hatred.
Everyone's now a racist if they judge a man's character and not the color of his skin.
MLK is probably rolling over in his grave.
The ultimate irony is that you racists object to being called what you are, what you profess to be on a daily basis. Why is that?

Thank you for sharing that information.

According to the poll, 44% say statements made by the Obama administration soon after the attack were an attempt to intentionally mislead the public.

BUT...59% now say that the U.S government could have prevented the attack in Benghazi, up 11 points from last November.

AND...only 37% say that congressional Republicans are overreacting in their handling of the matter with 59% saying they've reacted appropriately.

It's the same story on the IRS controversy, with 54% saying the GOP in Congress has not overplayed its hand.

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/05/...

It's a good day for America. Obama's approval ratings will soon reflect the majority concerning these scandals as well.

MLK would more than likely be embarrassed by this president too since it was MLK who admonished us to judge a man by his character and not by the color of his skin.
Lying and deception to protect self-serving intentions is not an outstanding character trait.
But, yes, he DOES have dark skin. So you go ahead and go with that. MLK would not be proud, pretty sure.
Oh, this is rich.
