Did you ever answer my question?

Is it fair only one side who is the opposition to those in power be targeted by the IRS and not the other side?

After we established there are political groups on the left who have tax exemption status, I mean.

Some Jewish organizations were apparently also targeted. Why do you suppose the IRS targeted them too?

It's just going to cause a lot more confusion.

Think that was the plan. "Overwhelm the system."

Overwhelming the U.S. economy creating systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos would destroy capitalism. That was the plan of Cloward & Piven, professors at Columbia University, who wanted to socialize America.

Obama is a good student if nothing else.

Here's the whole article:
NAACP Official: Obama Campaign Staffer Threatened Me: CHICAGO (CBS)— The President of the South Suburban Branch of the NAACP alleges a director of the re-election campaign of Barack Obama has threatened and intimidated him because he doesn’t support the president.

WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser has the exclusive story.

LISTEN: WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser Reports
http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/10/04/naacp-...

David Lowery says he believes he was threatened during a phone conversation with Louis Raymond, the Illinois political director for Obama for America.

Lowery says he doesn’t personally support the president because he’s not addressing issues important to the black community. He said he was explaining that to Raymond when the Obama campaign official told him,“You know what? I know everything about you.”

Lowery says Raymond added,“We’ve been watching you, and since you don’t support Obama, we’ll deal with you,” before hanging up.

Sure sounds like the same O'bama did to conservatives and Jewish groups that didn't support him.

It's strangely ironic how those missing front teeth of yours also somehow reflect the missing pieces inside of your pre-frontal lobes, your missing personality and the gaps in your cognizance.

Bizarre, but you are a 'complete' jerk in this sense.

You earlier said "it sounds like snake oil" and NOT "it sounds like a snake oil salesman".

Rate Shock: In California, Obamacare to Increase Individual Health Insurance Premiums by 64-146%

One of the most serious flaws with Obamacare is that its blizzard of regulations and mandates drives up the cost of insurance for people who buy it on their own. This problem will be especially acute when the law’s main provisions kick in on January 1, 2014, leading many to worry about health…

In the early 1920s, this book was published in Germany under the title The Eternal Jew. It reportedly had a major influence on Adolf Hitler, and he almost certainly plagiarized parts of it in Mein Kampf. The admiration was mutual. Following Hitler's assumption of power, Ford sent Hitler 50,000 Deutsch Marks every year on Hitler's birthday. Ford's anti-Semitic views were well known during the period that the Buchmanites bragged of Ford's support of their movement. For more information on Ford's Nazi connections, see Who Financed Hitler?, by James and Suzanne Pool. New York: Dial Press, 1978.

Sadly, you are right. The jerk also helped Stalin build Ford Tractors inside Russia because he thought Stalin was a gee-wiz great guy. Henry Ford did some great things but he also committed some great sins. His son Edsel knew it, too. I saw the PBS program about the life of Henry Ford.

Thanks for pointing that out.
