HughBe--- Thank you for your forthright opinion.

Honest mistake. Probably some lefty blathering on NPR planted the seed.

HughBe--- Thanks, I actually had a splendid day.

Former---I would have gotten you red roses if I could have.

HughBe--- 1. I know, the heart is willing but the pocket is weak. Such is the case when you are too pauperized.

2. I see that you are still having problems with gender identification and so you are still thinking that males are females. This challenge explains your sexual appetite.

Please always remember that I am MALE and it was NOT Father's Day.

HughBe--- The compound is cause for concern I am not one of your fellows, Frijoles and Eric are. I accept love but give the two to your fellow fellows.

These same people denying the truth will be eventually saying "so what, the war was necessary" .
Just like The Gulf of Tonkin was staged, the government apologists always claim that it was necessary.
rabbee: i fear you are giving all your false g-ds, way too much credit for staging that. just in case you cannot figure out, WHO TheReal G-D is, giving america hell too. even if it has been a kinder gentler hell, than other nations. and using us, to give them all hell too.

What do you think about the IRS "targeting" the Tea Party? Do you think it is ethical or not?
rabbee: if you try to throw a frog, in a pan of boiling water. it will most definatly, try to jump out. but if you put it in, a pan of ambient water. and slowly raise the corrupt temperature, it gets all comfy and warm. and yet all you frogs, still warm and comfy feel nothing is wrong. we did not get, near the boiling point with the deficit over-night. and slow to tyrannical change, is more dangerous to america than rapid changes.

and one of the trademarks of tyrany, is the suppression of all other ways to thinking but theirs. what are the dangers, of having an all democrat, or republican congress, executive, and supreme court? a two or more party governement is part, of the checks and balances too.

I am fine with the profiling, if, as FR questioned, the members actually evaded the taxes.
Besides, even if they didnt evade taxes, the fact is that it is a political group and therefore really shouldnt be a nonprofit. That is what triggered the whole event.
It is someones actions that determine that they are a political group, not their name .

I dont get how IRS investigation is implicitly tyrannical.
Lets look at a false equivalence that is being bandied around. Black people being pulled over by cops. That is wrong. In that situation, there is no reason to believe that black people are more guilty of a potential crime than white people, therefore profiling for the purpose of investigation is wrong.
But in the case of the Tea Party - these people are actually advocating illegal behavior. Therefore, the potential is there. Plus they are not acting as individuals, they are filing as an organization with voluntary membership. So it makes sense to profile the organization.
rabbee: do you think that mental prejudice, should be used to convict anyone? or to use it with deceit, to persecution. since this is not about prosecution, but subtle persecution.

and so yes, our forefathers of this nation. did commit illegal acts according to, king george and conwallis. they even had their own version, of a boston tea party. and what was, the cry then?

that the majority of americans, were being taxed unfairly without any representation. and that only the minorities, of this nation were being served and represented. and that the rights of the few, suppresed the rights of the many. and they the brittish profiled groups, in accordance to their opposition too.

do you consider, the foundation of this nation illegal? so what do you suppose G-D, had us do about it? when political suppression, is tyrany.

there is no such thing, as a non-act of G-D on this planet or all of physical totality. if you do not want, to believe in G-D. then G-D shall, command the devil to help you all. and it may only look like, muhammed's good at first. whether you, fail to see this or not. with slowly rising temp, untill it reaches the boiling point of syria. and the frogs, all start their dying.

So you would agree then that if the government couldnt prove any facts that the tax code is applicable then there is no evasion?

A long time ago I had a friend who worked as the chief acccount / budget officer for a large city. He told me they (the City) always knew who the democrats vs the republicans were, from who checked the voluntary donation box on their tax return. In a democratic presidential year, a democrat was more likely to make the donation to fund the political party system than a republican, and vice versa. I dont know how they got access to ones tax return, but it was an interesting comment....
