I think a U.S. soldier that walks into a village of people, and slaughters them is outright ridiculous. But that doesn't give me the right to believe that every U.S. Soldier should be held liable for the crime.
I'm not accusing you of doing that. The point I'm trying to make is that you don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. There are a lot of good IRS employees that do a thankless job, and are being included in this and it isn't right.
I wouldn't mind explaining MY point of view as to why the IRS sucks
so bad. All you have to do is ask.
WOW, No one has been murdered or died due to the IRS abuses to my knowledge, perhaps a different analogy would have been more apropos?

I'm off to do children things. Zippo I will answer all your question when the EPA gets done with my underwear study. It will be at least two years. Hopefully me changing my underwear won't interfere
with their job. TAMARA I will be getting back to you about the burden that has been placed on your loved ones.

No need to burden yourself I have most of the answers already, those I don't have I know how to get the answers.

Thanks anyway,:-)

<quoted text>I don't agree with your statement. These hearings are about finding the responsible parties in the IRS. In the hearing over and over again those testifying were asked who made the decisions to implement the 'list' which Miller would not answer, giving instead a long winded monologue which didn't answer anything and the questioner's time would expire and then he'd do it all over again. Someone knows who ordered this criteria, they just handed us Miller as the scapegoat. Doesn't pass the smell test!

How many times did Miller say he didn't know or didn't remember? I lost count.
Probably as many as Holder did in his hearing Wednesday

If some idiot were to attack an IRS office because they were driven to it by the media feeding frenzy, what would you say about that?
And yes, IRS employees have been attacked and killed in the past, and the people that did it, had a grudge against the IRS.

Fox News and Conservative Talk Radio Republicans:

These are one of the angriest groups of Republicans. They watch Fox News or listen to Conservative Talk Radio and they think it makes them an expert on politics. The only knowledge they have of politics is parroted talking points without any facts to back them up. When you defeat them in debate they will resort to calling you names like “Liberal,”“commie,”“socialist” or “baby-killer” etc. They think all liberals are socialists that want to take their money and give it to people who don’t deserve it.

The reason why this type of Republican is an idiot:

They have no idea what they are talking about. Usually they’re just repeating things they have heard from Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh. They think that liberals want to take away their freedoms and they clearly don’t know what the word “liberal” means, or what liberals have done for our country and freedom. They think President Obama is comparable to Hitler for passing health-care reform. They accuse you of watching MSNBC if you don’t agree with them. They call you a sheep but expect you to blindly believe everything they tell you, without question.

What to Remember when debating them:

Keep demanding facts from them to back up their assertions until they break down and call you any of the aforementioned names. Ask them to name specific freedoms that liberals have taken away from them. They have a tendency to become violent so watch their hands if you are debating them face to face.

Over 3 years pending approval, ridiculous!


That has more to do with the lack of IRS staffing. A few years ago it was an average of 2yrs, but it depends on the size of the organization they are investigating. It has to be proven that your a legit non-profit organization. The bigger you are the longer it takes.

I don't know. But where my friend was they were to get her ready to do and handle physical therpy. She did not get that point. They have so many days to do this. Ins. only pays for 20 days of the therapy to get her ready for the hard core therapy and then ins, only pays for 25 days. Since she did not passed she was bumped down to a healthcare facility called a log term health care facility. There are many reasons she did not make it. When I was in charge of my Dads healthcare before he passed away I did learn even if you have the best health care it also takes the patients will to do all it takes to get to a better point. That is if a better point is possible. Also these healthcare facilities can accept you or not. The ones in Oklahoma City and some she had already been there would accept her so then the health ins gives you alist of the ones that will. On this list Kingfisher was the closes. As time goes on maybe I will learn more what's going on.

Um no it's not staffing. The IRS has admitted it and it was admitted in hearings today.

I made an analogy a few blogs back and was criticized for it. My point is that the employees of the IRS have an important job to do, and just because a few employees choose to do the wrong thing. That doesn't make every IRS employee a criminal or evil.

TAMARA It sounds like your son is well educated, so he probable has already done this. He needs to go after every penny his mother-in-law is entitled to from the government. SS&SSDI are the first that come to mind. It can be a very long process, in some cases the government is to small and outdated. Don't let feelings slow down the process, it well make matters worse. Trust me I've been thru it.
