The IRS also went after the NAACP during the Bush years. Oh, the outrage....

Come to me. I may be cheaper. I only bill out on 15 minute increments.
Yes, I heard about the NAACP. This is why we should care.
Could go (and has gone) either way. Even of there was no GOP
outrage at the time, and there wasn't.

Dont shoot the messenger. I didnt write the article
The funny thing is that I would think you would agree with it. It basically says while the IRS wastes time on a wild goose chase persecuting people who really have no significant assets, they purposely ignore the large rich Super Pacs which are the real problem in society.
I can only guess you didnt read the article. Do you have ADD by any chance?
why not? you shoot the messenger all of the time.

Yeah, that's pretty close to my line on them:

Same with the form of gov't we have.
You're making a straw argument.
Regardless as I believe someone here pointed out, the 16th amendment was never ratified, Bill Benson has physical evidence on that fact.

Do you think a man can be friends with a woman, without
thinking fairly often about doing her (assuming she isn't
butt ugly)?
Not so much in my experience.

The same IRS office that deliberately targeted conservative groups
applying for tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 election
released nine pending confidential applications of conservative
groups to ProPublica late last year… In response to a request for
the applications for 67 different nonprofits last November, the
Cincinnati office of the IRS sent ProPublica applications or
documentation for 31 groups. Nine of those applications had not
yet been approved—meaning they were not supposed to be made
public.(We made six of those public, after redacting their
financial information, deeming that they were newsworthy.)

HUGH:

Given the barrage of accusations and expletives directed at you concerning your sexual orientation, it's made me wonder if you're sexually attracted to me?

I still remember your invite to shower with you made years ago....

Yes.

There is that mid range of being attractive enough for society but not one's personal cup of tea. That helps keep things tamped down.

And then there are a few women who although I initally wanted, I was rebuffed,and then over time in the course of a friendship I realized how much of a nut case or nut situation she was, and that no sex would of EVER been worth the mess and the hassle or the soap opera. That tames the Johnson like nothing else!

I try to cite only generally accepted credible sources. The NYTimes has their ups and downs, but their biggest transgression to date (the run-up to the Iraq war) was a sin of ommission leading to bias, which is a RADICALLY different animal than the Alex Jones stuff that is posted daily, and one that has be publicly addressed. OTOH Alex Jones routinely does not use reputably acceptable sources, and many of the stories are not independently corroborated.

As of my other criticism of you....often you just post one liners and talking points that really dont address the issue at hand (usually because you refuse to read the fundamental discussion).

That's a critique of IRRELEVANCE more than an attack on the validity of the source.

Think about this.

MATH:

m men and n women are to be seated in a row so that no 2 women sit together. If m greater than n, then show that the number of ways in which they can be seated is: m!(m + 1)!/(m - n +1)!

(IIT JEE, 1993, 2 marks)

SOLUTION:

Consider m men only.

These m men can be seated in a row in mPm ways = m! ways.

Now, corresponding to any one arrangement of these m men, there are (m + 1) places for n women to occupy, so that no two women sit together.

This can be done in (m+1)Pn ways.

So, by the fundamental theorem, the required number of ways in which m men and n women can be seated in a row so that no two women sit together is:

m! x (m+1)Pn, m greater than n.

= m! x (m+1)!/(m+1-n)!

= m!(m+1)!/(m-n+1)!........prove n.
