For whatever reason, the Treasury Inspector General has been less than truthful. What he said was six groups with "progressive" or "progress" in their names were targeted. Those were not the only liberal groups targeted.
Keep in mind, IRS employees MUST separate political groups who are not allowed to claim tax-exempt status, from bona fide social welfare organizations. You seem to forget that is their JOB.
If the IG was white, you would call him a fkn liar.

The simple answer is to eliminate all tax-exempt status for all groups, political or otherwise. Then we can ditch the IRS employees who do this snooping.

<quoted text>and don't forget: "Charles Stuart was shot in the abdomen, while his pregnant wife was killed by a shot to the head. Stuart blamed the incident on an African-American male, leading to a massive manhunt that inflamed racial tensions in Boston and resulted in the arrest of an innocent suspect. Stuart's brother, Matthew, eventually disclosed that Stuart had in fact killed his wife for insurance money and shot himself. Before Stuart could be questioned, he apparently committed suicide by jumping off the Tobin Bridge." They should really check their prejudices more closely before they go with the total support for a "white Hispanic" child molester and a child-killing loser couple of whom one was not even white, just Hispanic.
Remember it well. Easy to blame the black boogie man; everyone wants to believe that story. I hope the truth comes out, whatever it is. Tough to be poor and black, especially in the South. No one gives a shyt.

Good Positive News -
They're among the pictures of the year: A suddenly bald George H.W. Bush holding a 2-year-old in one photo, and posing with equally bald Secret Service agents in another.
The 41st president's decision to shave his head in solidarity with the the 2-year-old leukemia patient is winning praise throughout the land, including members of the presidential club,
"41, you look great," tweeted former president Bill Clinton. "Love what you're doing."
The child, identified as Patrick, is the son of a member of Bush's security detail.
President Obama's White House tweeted out the photo of Bush and the boy, urging supporters to retweet it "to show your support Patrick."
We're waiting on reaction from another president, son George W. Bush.
Leukemia has special resonance in the Bush family; George senior and wife Barbara lost their infant daughter Robin to the disease in 1953.
Nice photo op, wonder if he gave him a big fat check to go with it. Often people talk about supporting someone or something, on Facebook etc. but do they really help them? I hope so.

This is the new right wing racket. Well, it’s not entirely new – race baiting is an old racket on the right – but the extent to which conservatives are now comfortable telling white people they’re the new victims, in danger of being unfairly prosecuted like George Zimmerman when they should actually be thanked for ending slavery, is unique and brazen and dangerous. We need more Republicans, as well as more media figures, to call it what it is: a race hustle.

Bill O'Reilly is a stone-cold racist for pointing out that the major causes of poverty are dropping out of school, having children before age 20, and having children out of wedlock.

They likely think it's funny for these two young women, one pregnant, and their dog, to drown to death submerged in their van because they were organic farmers and lived in Maine.
I sure hope they don't think that. It was dark and rainy and the road they were on turned into a boat ramp. Reports say the driver became disoriented because of the fog.

There's nothing funny at all about two women and their dog dying that way.

Anyone who thinks that - even if sarcastically - should be ashamed.

WEST PALM BEACH —
A 59-year-old retired Connecticut school teacher is suing GEO Group Inc., claiming lax security at a prison the Boca Raton-based company runs in Oklahoma allowed inmates to extort nearly $700,000 from him.
In a lawsuit filed this week in U.S. District Court in West Palm Beach, Joseph Pappalardo claims inmates responded to a message he posted on an online dating service, looking for men to meet on the phone. After telling one of his phone “dates” that his family didn’t know he was gay, the man threatened to out him if Pappalardo didn’t send him money.
Some people get what they deserve.

The "lawyer" who filed this suit should be disbarred.

You'd be more interested in the Senate Finance Committee's investigation. Senator Max Baucus (D) is overseeing it. He believes it goes much further than the "scope of focus".
The House Ways and Means Committee and the Oversight and Government Reform Committee are also investigating.
Also, an upcoming inspector general's report obtained by The Associated Press says IRS supervisors knew about the targeting as early as 2011.
There's a lot going on behind the scenes. The findings will be revealed soon enough but reports are in another six weeks or so.
You do want to know the truth, right? I will accept their findings even if I've been wrong.
It won't change my strong belief that Obama is not the right leader for the nation. But I will accept that he truly didn't know about the targeting if it can't be proven.
If they can't get it right after all this time, there's a problem.

It must be hard for young black males to always be viewed as criminals by people who notice crime statistics. We've jawboned that sad story for 40 years. Last week, President Obama ran it around the block again in another speech about himself in reaction to the George Zimmerman verdict.

Let's give that beloved chestnut a rest for a day and consider another way blacks have it harder than whites. Only black people are expected to never speak against their community. Might we spend five minutes admiring the courage of blacks who step forward and tell the truth to cops, juries and reporters in the middle of our periodic racial Armageddons? This one is never discussed at all.

In December 1984, Bernie Goetz shot four black men who were trying to mug him on the New York City subway.(About a year later, one youth admitted that, yes, in fact, they "were goin' to rob him." They thought he looked like "easy bait.")

A few days after the shooting, The New York Times got the racism ball rolling with its "beneath the surface" reporting technique: "Just beneath the surface of last week's debate was the question of whether the shooting may have been racially motivated."

Hoping for support for its below-the-surface thesis, the Times visited the mother of Darrell Cabey, the young man paralyzed from the shooting. As the Times summarized the feeling at the Claremont housing project where Cabey lived, "many people said the four teen-agers were troublemakers and probably got what they deserved."

Cabey's mother had received one letter that said: "[Y]ou get no sympathy from us peace-loving, law-abiding blacks. We will even contribute to support the guy who taught you a lesson, every way we can ... P.S. I hope your wheelchair has a flat tire."

The Washington Post also interviewed Cabey's neighbors. Eighteen-year-old Yvette Green said: "If I'd had a gun, I would have shot him." Darryl Singleton, 24 years old, called Cabey, "a sweet person," but added, "if I had a gun, I would have shot the guy."

As white liberals (and Al Sharpton) screamed "racism!" how'd you like to be the black woman called by the defense at Goetz's trial? Andrea Reid, who was on the subway car during the shooting, testified: Those "punks were bothering the white man ... those punks got what they deserved."

Reid had met the mother and brother of one of Goetz's muggers at a party. But she took the stand and told the truth.

Juror Robert Leach, a black bus driver from Harlem, was one of Goetz's most vehement defenders in the jury room, even persuading the others not to convict Goetz for unlawful possession of any guns, other than the one he used in the shooting. In the end, three blacks and one Hispanic on the jury voted to acquit Goetz of all 13 charges except for the minor one of carrying an illegal firearm.
