He still brings up Wilhelm which was over 3 years ago when I first started to play on here, and unlike that chicken sh1t I tried a couple times at posting with a different name for a couple days before I decided that hell I want everyone to know it's me not someone else. Unlike that lyng fool I admitted that I did, But that idiot suffers from an identity crisis and has to have imaginary friends,one can imagine just what a lonely person he really is. I'll bet he even E-mails himself. LMAO.
Thanks for reminding me. I think I'll give him another chance, I'll ask real nice this time.

Dear Mr. Waxman,
As a man of self-described impeccable scruples do you agree with the following?:
Anyone that would falsify, load up or in any way manipulate the judge-it system is a low-life, unethical, mentally ill, pathetic piece of shit.

VA Spends Close to $500 Million on Conference Room, Office Makeovers Under Obama
President requests 3 percent increase for VA budget.
President Barack Obama has increased the Department of Veterans Affairs’ budget each year since he took office, claiming the funds would give veterans the health care they deserve. However, an analysis of records show the agency has spent close to $500 million on office furniture under the Obama administration.
This upcoming fiscal year Obama requested a 3 percent increase for the Veterans Affairs budget. Obama’s FY 2015 budget request points out he has increased the VA discretionary budget by 35.2 percent since 2009 so veterans continue to access necessary services.
“VA’s 2015 budget provides the necessary resources to allow us to serve our veterans who selflessly served our nation,” stated the president’s FY 2015 budget.
As the embattled agency faces charges of record tampering and neglect of veterans, records reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon show the VA has not neglected upgrading and decorating its offices throughout the country.
The VA has spent a total of $489 million to upgrade conference rooms, buy draperies, and purchase new office furniture during the past four-and-a-half years.
A total of 15,010 contracts were awarded for office furniture by the VA for Fiscal Years 2010 through 2014.
“This is just one of many misplaced priorities at the VA, and unfortunately, I think we’ve only begun to scratch the surface,” Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas) said in an emailed statement.“I will not stop until the VA is investigated top to bottom, and new leadership is brought in to clean up this dysfunctional agency.”
One contract awarded $6.8 million for construction of a conference room and facilities at its Carol Stream, Ill., office. That renovation is ongoing and is expected to be completed next April.
The VA’s San Juan, Puerto Rico office spent $1.8 million on new office furniture, and one of its Virginia offices spent $1.9 million on “systems office furniture.” That project is expected to be completed at the end of this month.
Another $1.4 million is currently being spent on a yearlong third floor renovation project for the “design, purchase/installation of furniture” in Saint Petersburg, Fla. That is expected to be completed on Sep. 17. The Free Beacon found a second contract for the same office signed earlier this year in which $267,131, for “non-upholstered wood household furniture manufacturing.”
The VA also spent $1.8 million for “systems furniture” in Philadelphia; $1.8 million for “multi-functional, mobile, enhance learning space” in Tampa; $1.8 million for “showcases, partitions, shelving” for its Los Angeles office.
To make the office makeovers complete, draperies, roller shades, and cornice boxes were also purchased. The VA spent $10.7 million in the past five fiscal years on curtains and draperies.
Some of those contracts include $454,085 for “cubical curtains and draperies” for its Brecksville, Ohio, office. The Pittsburg, Pa., VA office spent $382,879 on window shades which were just installed in January.
Instead of draperies, the VA’s Los Alamitos office preferred cornice boxes and roller shades. The contract shows they spent $106,615 on its window treatments.
The Free Beacon also found pricey filing system expenditures. For example,$1.7 million was spent on a filing system for the California office. The reason the VA is spending high amounts on filing systems is unclear, since Obama’s FY 2015 budget included $138.7 million in Veteran Claims Intake Program for the conversion of paper documents into eFolders.
Also under Obama administration, the anemic VA budget from the Bush presidency was increased from $90 billion to almost double at $155 billion.

First you are too uninformed to know that the tax exempt status clearly states that the group's major focus can NOT be politics.
Then you can't decide what the "TEA" in Tea Party means.
Are you named after the event (which is really stupid because we have representation in government) or are you Taxed Enough Already.
Or is it you just make up sh*t as you go along.
Let me help you out here. DC has a list of what they consider a "Tea Party" Group

Lerner email to DC

"The screening group manager asked his employees how they were applying the BOLO's short -hand reference to "tea party." His employees responded that they were including organizations meeting any of the following criteria as falling within the BOLO's reference to "tea party" organizations:

"1.'Tea Party','Patriots' or '9/12 Project' is referenced in the case file.

2. Issues include government spending, government debt and taxes.

3. Educate the public through advocacy/legislative activities to make America a better place to live.

4. Statements in the case file that are critical of the how the country is being run."

http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-content/uploa...

Before you go into your typical whine fest, the emails exists whether you like the organization who obtained them or not.

2) You do not know the code. The tax exempt status 501(c) does NOT state you cannot have political messages.

From the IRS:
"A. Political Educational Organizations
IRC 501(c)(4) requires that organizations operate primarily in promoting in some way the common good and general welfare of the people of the community. To meet this requirement, many IRC 501(c)(4) organizations engage in educating the community.
Guidance regarding educational activities under IRC 501(c)(4) is derived from revenue rulings and court decisions regarding the educational activities of IRC 501(c)(3) organizations.1 Generally, political educational organizations mustconduct their activities in a non-partisan manner.

"Reg. &#61479; 1.501(c)(3)-1(d)(3) provides that the term "educational" relates to (a) the instruction or training of the individual for the purpose of improving or developing his capabilities; or (b) the instruction of the public on subjects useful to the individual and beneficial to the community. An organization may be educational even though it advocates a particular position or viewpoint if it presents a sufficiently full and fair exposition of the pertinent facts to permit an individual or the public to form an independent opinion or conclusion. An example of an educational organization is an organization whose activities consist of presenting public discussion groups, forums, panels, lectures, or other similar programs."

Hi! It is another Friday already! The weeks are flying by, in case you
haven`t noticed...I have some news about the space aliens...The reason The U.S.A. government will not admit there are space aliens and that we are not alone in the universe is this...The space aliens
politics is this...They are social democrats also known as .communists!
Maybe U.S.A. politics is wrong? The space aliens have a lot to teach us! We DO HAVE 2% of the population having 90% of the money! We
DO HAVE the rich stifling the patents! I will turn my attention to religion....If there are space aliens and they have been around millions
of years, then the Bible is wrong and obsolete and our religious and
political leaders have been lying to us! Study the American Indian
religions...Are they wrong? Or are they right? According to what I read
on the internet, heaven is going to give the secret inventions to
Taiwan and Communist China and Communist China and India will be
traveling the speed of light and go to the planets in 10 years and the
U.S.A. will be twidelling their thumbs! Now, Communist China will have
to be given the plans for new metals (alloys) that can stand the rigors
of traveling the speed of light! We do not have these alloys as of now,
but the space aliens do! I do not have anything to say for now. I will
write again this afternoon. Love, el cid 777

With the IRS scandal NOT going away but getting more alarming because of the DC involvement, it is understandable you are stuck with dumb responses to it.

This scandal really hits hard as it shows political corruption.

LOL. More like the enthusiasm of Rush supporters.

Rush told his listeners “We are in the second day of voting for the Children's Choice Book Awards. I just mentioned this a couple of times yesterday….” and went on to tell them they could find a link “right at the top of our home page.”

RUSH: "The awards were handed out last night by the Children's Book Council, and I want to take a moment here to thank everyone in the audience, particularly the young people who voted." LOL. Like there are any children in his audience.
