Well Obama's doing the Africa thing only to find the Chinese have already tied up deals with every country he visits. Yet this is the light-speed you guys expect with any change. Play catch up with everyone else, NOT because the US hasn't the ability to lead its because conservative USA won't let it happen. It's the same with every single social change that adapts to modern living and a changing crowded planet. The difference is if a country like China decides overnight not to buy coal anymore there will be no arguments, no if's or but's it will just happen. Yet your lot want to deny the US to be a world leader in alternative energy tech because your addicted to fossil fuels so won't hear anything bad about it. Bagging the alternative energy industry on the basis they can't profit against cheap subsidised fossil fuels. The enemy is not Al Queda anymore it's you guys who would rather sit back and watch your your planet turn into a barren desert or one big super storm where there is no way out.

How about filling all the empty lots in Detroit, of which there are many?

In other words, aside from blatant political activity, Tea Turd groups engage in zero social welfare.

A ridiculous claim, but the fact that progressive groups were also flagged weakens the Teabaggers argument a lot.
Democrats seem determined to shift the focus to this week's disclosure that "Progressive" was also on a list of terms used by IRS screeners from 2010 to 2012 to look for applicants with potential problems that would merit close scrutiny. In a letter obtained Thursday by The Associated Press, George acknowledged that "Progressives" appeared on the list. But he said there was no evidence the IRS set aside progressive groups' applications because they appeared on that list.

BS
Her use of “educational” may go back to the fact that political activities cannot become the primary function of a 501(c)4 organization. The challenge for reviewers is interpreting what is meant by the term “primary.” The TIGTA audit notes “Treasury Regulations state that I.R.C.§ 501(c)(4) organizations should have social welfare as their ‘primary activity’; however, the regulations do not define how to measure whether social welfare is an organization’s ‘primary activity.

Quit defedning the scumbags
"The Internal Revenue Service on Friday apologized for targeting groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, confirming long-standing accusations by some conservatives that their applications for tax-exempt status were being improperly delayed and scrutinized."
The scrutiny was well deserved. The Teabaggers are political groups trying to get a tax exemption pretending to otherwise.

Figures you'd get it wrong.

The IRS did their job.

BrightSource Energy's Ivanpah solar power project will soon be a humming city with 24-hour lighting, a wastewater processing facility and a gas-fired power plant. To make room, BrightSource has mowed down a swath of desert plants, displaced dozens of animal species and relocated scores of imperiled desert tortoises, a move that some experts say could kill up to a third of them.

Despite its behemoth footprint, the Ivanpah project has slipped easily into place, unencumbered by lasting legal opposition or public outcry from California's boisterous environmental community.

The public got its chance to comment at scores of open houses, but the real political horse trading took place in meetings involving solar developers, federal regulators and leaders of some of the nation's top environmental organizations.

Away from public scrutiny, they crafted a united front in favor of utility-scale solar development, often making difficult compromises.

"I have spent my entire career thinking of myself as an advocate on behalf of public lands and acting for their protection," said Johanna Wald, a veteran environmental attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council. "I am now helping facilitate an activity on public lands that will have very significant environmental impacts. We are doing it because of the threat of climate change. It's not an accommodation; it's a change I had to make to respond to climate."

That unusual collaboration -- along with generous federal subsidies and allotments of public land -- has sparked a wholesale remodeling of the American desert.

Industrial-scale solar development is well underway in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. The federal government has furnished more public property to this cause than it has for oil and gas exploration over the last decade -- 21 million acres, more than the area of Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties put together.

Even if only a few of the proposed projects are built, hundreds of square miles of wild land will be scraped clear. Several thousand miles of power transmission corridors will be created.

The desert will be scarred well beyond a human life span, and no amount of mitigation will repair it, according to scores of federal and state environmental reviews.

"The scale of impacts that we are facing, collectively across the desert, is phenomenal," said Dennis Schramm, former superintendent at neighboring Mojave National Preserve. "The reality of the Ivanpah project is that what it will look like on the ground is worse than any of the analyses predicted."

In the fight against climate change, the Mojave Desert is about to take one for the team.

It just bothers people when you project ignorance on people when the demoKrats still have your brain in chains you idiot.

Obama Bin Lyin is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression.

The economy sucks, unemployment is high, terrorists bolder, IRS and NSA are NAZI Gestapo, the government is rife with scandals, ridden with criminals, communists, fascist democrats, sellouts and Obama bin Lying is responsible you suck ass idiot...

Young graduates are in debt, out of work and on their parents couches. People in their 30s and 40s can't afford to buy homes or have children. Retirees are earning near-zero interest on their savings.

AND... Your addiction and obsession to dumbass is an ardent interest of your pursuit you idiot... I wish someone had an answer to your deranged addiction to fool.

You voted for the winner obama and still lost making you a bigger loser...

In short you retard, the Fascist Obama administration has criminalized the news-gathering process... Defending the IRS and a sellout Obama bin Lying is an excellent Fascisat campaign strategy in 2014 you idiot, recommended for all democrats...

The democrat party no longer exists, it's straight up sellout, communist, statist. So the Tea Party is really the only hope.

It's the culture...

It's a 'scandal' that proved to be an issue with the IRS, NOT this administration...no matter how loudly FOX talking heads scream otherwise.

Do you think the terrorists sent Bush their itinerary before crashing planes into buildings?
Where would President Yeah have put "full security"? On what day? At what time? On which landmarks? On which subways or where there were large public gatherings?
Frankly, you're so stupid sometimes it makes me see red.
Carol, you're the last person in the world to be commenting on someone's intelligence as this post proves beyond all doubt that you are one of the most abysmally stupid people on this thread. George W Bush was warned during the first of his 77 visits to his faux ranch that an attack on US soil was imminent and what did he do? NOTHING! He stayed there another week. He could have gone back to Washington and set fire under some asses and found out that there were FBI reports of suspicious students at flight schools around the nation and prevented the attacks. Did he do that? NO! Because there was more brush to cut.
You're a complete idiot Carol!
