    rabid.   So I'm making shit up.   Well,   the former head of the IRS is apologizing for it as Obama says we must make sure it never happens again.    Not to mention the entire Forth Estate is all over this made up shit.  You should get a clue:  The powers that be may seem like your friends  when they abuse their power to go after perceived  common enemies but those abuses of power can end up hurting you as well.

      the administration of "unleashing the IRS on political opponents."  Your own statements just now discredit that claim, admitting that the IRS and the administration are acting to correct it.

      And by no stretch of the imagination is this administration "The Powers That Be."  Everything I listed in this diary demonstrates that.  There were no investigations into Bush's targeting of the NAACP; no one was fired; no admission of wrongdoing.  Nothing.  They tortured people to death and there were no investigations.  No admissions of wrongdoing.  Nothing.

      But when they have a problem with something, the world stops.  Thanks for contributing to their power.

      Process defines product.

        I have no problem making terrorists "uncomfortable" in order to ensure American virtue. I take offense at federal behemoths targeting individuals or groups because of their beliefs. When that occurs it undermines all agencies and us citizens lose all faith in all agencies. Thus, virtue is lost.
