Damn. You never answered the question I asked. You pretend to have military service experience. Were you one of the frauds pretending to be Vietnam veterans in the so-called Vietnam Veterans Against the War?
Or, are you not old enough to have done that?
And, I told you once, adress your elders with "yes, sir" and "no, sir" and "yes, ma'am" and "no, ma'am". Don't make me take my belt of and pull your pants down to whip you.

so auntie, wasn't the head of the IRS appointed by Bush? So why didn't the IRS leadership, including the commissioner take better action??
Douglas H Shulman was the IRS commissioner in the run up to the 2012 elections. He took Office Mar 24, 2008 and left Nov 9, 2012. That would make him a Bush Appointee.
so yes why wasn't more done? Maybe he's a good friend of FEMA director Brownie and just a competent.
Shulman donated $500 to the Democratic Party before the 2004 election. He was appointed in 2008.

There goes your argument right out the window.

Opposition to excessive taxation is completely unrelated to illegal tax avoidance.
Opposition to excessive taxation is an educational function and not partisan politics...unless, of course, one party is founded on taxing the crap out of the citizens to support a bunch of moochers.
There is much more to the Tea Party than being opposed to "excessive taxation", they are also anti-government. So, isn't it logical that thier TAX EXEMPT applications are scrutinized?

FYI: here is a link that explains the distribution of government subsidies (spoiler alert: if you define "subsidy" to include tax breaks/credits, the wealthiest Americans are the real moochers; see #7 figure 3)

I use to go to both plants and the headquarters every day for a while. I loved the employee tent sales once a month. I know this from the people who work there that most of all the products produced there went to China anyway. But I agree they could drive prices up if they chose to do so. Or shut all the plants down. There are at least 4 around here.

Nothing of your "look over here" changes the facts of what happened in the IRS, the Holder scandal or what happen in Benghazi.

We will repeat "57 states" until the moron who said it is no longer in power.

You're one of the nitwits who willingly allowed crooks like Rmoney to move American jobs to China, beggaring the USA and making China rich with American Dollars from WalMart.

Now the chickens are coming home to roost, you idiot.

Remember, you supported Rmoney, who made a fortune investing in China and closing American Companies.

How do you figure that makes the argument invalid??

Did or did not Bush appoint the man to the IRS??

what does a campaign contribution have to do with Bush appointing the guy??

Another emotional outburst from Jason.

So we can't talk about Bush, but you and nitwit Lorac can spend days talking about Sandy Berger, an unelected Clinton staffer who committed a misdemeanor years after Clinton left office??

Obama’s Presidency: A Disaster for African Americans. Can Black Politics Be Revived?
Obama’s presidency has been disastrous for African Americans, who have been economically crushed and disconnected from their historical roots in social struggle. Political fantasists now urge us to put our faith in demographics, claiming that change will inevitably flow from the darkening of America’s population. But, that’s a trap which leads to a descent into South Africa-like conditions.

The Age of Obama, now in its second and final quadrennial, has largely succeeded in divorcing African American politics from the historical Black consensus on social justice, self-determination and peace. What remains is play-acting and role-modeling, an Ebony magazine caricature of politics that leaves the great bulk of Black people with, literally, no avenues of resistance to the savage depredations of capitalism in decline. Shamefully, through reflexive support for President Obama’s relentless assaults on international order, the Black America polity has rendered itself useless to the struggle for a just and sustainable world.

None of this is written in stone, of course. The quickening cascade of crises that define our times – the prelude to collapse – will each provide opportunities to alter Black America’s political course. As Obama’s exit approaches, the African American delirium begins to palpably break, like a spent fever. Black politicos rush to revise the histories of their own post-2007 behavior, inventing examples of their “constructive criticism” of the First Black President and their alleged misgivings and anxieties about the corporate, militarist direction of his policies – in order to position themselves for the post-Obama era.

But the crisis in Black politics was building long before Wall Street selected the talented young actor from Chicago to implement its austerity and global war agenda. The Black Misleadership Class, representing political tendencies indigenous to Black America, is the problem. Having no vision of the future beyond populating it with more Black faces in high places, they will inevitably imbibe other Black-flavored corporate potions in hopes of reviving some version of the Obama euphoria.OBAMA CLOSING BLACK SCHOOLS IN CHICAGO WOW
