So now business owners are going to be afraid to fire a crappy employee because he might be Czakos mandingo fantasy man and her little minions will nail him if he fires them. So all the other employees wil have to put up with a hostile workplace created by someone who is untouchable.
So all the protected classes will be emboldened and the employer will have good people quit because he won't fire a piece or crap.
It will be simple.... employers won't hire someone until they have to and will do everything they can to find a legal reason not to hire one of those that these idiots are trying to help.
To be honest, it looks like these days most retailers are already hiring crappy employees in an effort to hold the bottom line, even Lowes.

Absolutely not. Everyone tries to cheat the government. In one sense that's OK with me considering what the government does to us. Look at Apple and their tax evasion situation. That's another story, but anyone can claim to be a tax-exempt organization. I think it's the IRS's responsibility to question and research all applicants. If they were rubber stamping them without question, certainly some "liberal" organizations would be brought into question and people would want to know why. I don't see anything wrong with what the IRS did.

Lets look at Apple... they paid 6.5 billion dollars in taxes and that does not include all the money they kicked in in social security and medicare for their emloyees or all the other fees gas taxes, utilitiy taxes etc etc. their effective tax rate was 31% on the money they earned in the US Why should Obasma get a cut of apples profits they earned manufacturing a phone in china and selling it to a person in india?

There is nothing wrong with the government auditing anyone to make sure they are legit. There is always something wrong when rogue agents decide to pick on someone whos policies they don't like and go after them which is apparently exactly what happened here. You might feel different if they decided to audit gay people or black groups who may be constured as pushing their politcal agenda.

There is also something wrong with a President who isn't even told by the people who are supposed to tell him and he acts like that is just okay with him.

There are oodles of googles out there not paying taxes on billions in profits. The latest news not on our own network news trash are the thousands of offshore accounts found in the Caymans and elsewhere, who hide their corporate profits. All we hear about is this trash about the IRS while big business and congress laugh. Go to RT News and learn the truth.
