Homer's just mad Hillary Clinton shot the liberal argument that Saddam wasn't harboring terrorists in the foot.

Think that argument has been shot down once and for all. Hillary pulled the trigger, of all people.

Groups Targeted by I.R.S. Tested Rules on Politics

When CVFC, a conservative veterans’ group in California, applied for tax-exempt status with the Internal Revenue Service, its biggest expenditure that year was several thousand dollars in radio ads backing a Republican candidate for Congress.

The Wetumpka Tea Party, from Alabama, sponsored training for a get-out-the-vote initiative dedicated to the “defeat of President Barack Obama” while the I.R.S. was weighing its application.

And the head of the Ohio Liberty Coalition, whose application languished with the I.R.S. for more than two years, sent out e-mails to members about Mitt Romney campaign events and organized members to distribute Mr. Romney’s presidential campaign literature.

Representatives of these organizations have cried foul in recent weeks about their treatment by the I.R.S., saying they were among dozens of conservative groups unfairly targeted by the agency, harassed with inappropriate questionnaires and put off for months or years as the agency delayed decisions on their applications.

But a close examination of these groups and others reveals an array of election activities that tax experts and former I.R.S. officials said would provide a legitimate basis for flagging them for closer review.

“Money is not the only thing that matters,” said Donald B. Tobin, a former lawyer with the Justice Department’s tax division who is a law professor at Ohio State University.“While some of the I.R.S. questions may have been overbroad, you can look at some of these groups and understand why these questions were being asked.”

Oh, ye of little common sense.
Everything here is heavily subsidized. This leads to Sucker Consumerism. This is intentional.
If you Search Solar ROI, Solar Payback, Solar...whatever,...it is nearly impossible to find any unbiased data.
You will find www.joeblowsolar.com across the board and they ALL sing the praises of Solar because they are selling the crap.
Other than that, you'll find the .gov sites singing halleluiah about all the rebates, refunds and other hidden subsidies to make Solar look good.
So you can take your biased Tree-Hugger, Solar-Hawker, Gubbermint-sudsudizzed BS and stroke yerself wit it, Dood.
Love that. "Oh, ye of little common sense." May I use it?

PS I know you can't
Here's the proof but I don't expect you to understand it.

Ways and Mean Committee

Preliminary IRS Investigation Update—TIGTA’s Failure to Disclose that “Progressives” Were Included on the IRS “Be On the Look Out”(BOLO) list

"There are two key updates based on the Ways and Means Committee Democratic staff’s investigation of the Internal Revenue
Service’s (IRS) processing of tax-exemption applications:

First, the “Be On the Look Out” lists contained the word
“Progressives.” In May 2013, the Treasury Inspector General for
Tax Administration (TIGTA) released an audit report stating that the IRS used “inappropriate criteria” to process tax-exemption
applications. The Inspector General only disclosed in the audit
report that the “Be On the Look Out” lists used by the IRS to screen tax-exemption applications for processing contained the name “TeaParty.” Based on our investigation, it has become clear that the Inspector General failed to inform the Congress that the following category also appears on the same BOLOs that contain the “Tea Party” criteria and even appears on the BOLOs after the “Tea Party” criteria had been removed:

Category name on the IRS' "BE ON THE LOOK OUT" list:

Progressives: Political activities. Common thread is the word
“progressive.” Activities appear to lean toward a new political party. Activities are partisan and appear anti-Republican. You see references to “blue” as being “progressive.”

Summary of Evidence:

There was clear mismanagement on the part of the IRS Exempt Organizations Division in processing these tax-exemption
applications. This mismanagement has now been compounded by
the clear evidence that the Inspector General also mishandled this
investigation by failing to reveal that “Progressives” were also on the BOLO list that Determinations Unit employees used to screen
applications."

....Based on the recently received information, the Inspector
General seriously erred in not making clear in both the audit report and his testimony on this matter that “Tea Party” and “Progressives” were included in the BOLO lists that Determinations Unit employees used to screen applications. It is now clear that the audit conducted by the Inspector General was fundamentally flawed...."

"The Inspector General’s audit served as the basis and impetus for a wide range of Congressional investigations and this new information shows that the foundation for those investigations has been flawed in a fundamental way. When the Inspector General had the opportunity to inform Congress that “Progressives” was also on the BOLO list, he did not. When asked specifically at hearings, he was not forthright."

Aside from all that I'm for abolishing the IRS.

Still no name for "Bush political appointee"?

Political appointee or Civil Service?

Cummings is an Uncle Tom and maybe even a "creepy-ass cracker."

Candy Crowley is a fat pig political garden tool.

But the IRS already admitted it's actions were inappropriate. Why do you l.l.w. keep making excuses for them? Oh, it's because you've never met a tax you didn't love.
