    and it's wrong for the IRS to target political groups.

    Also, just fyi, about half of those tags have absolutely nothing to do with your diary.

      These tea party groups should not be profiled by the IRS, they should be profiled by the FBI for supporting sedition by elected officials.

      application processes more efficient is not the same as what cons accuse the IRS of - they did not target anybody because they were conservative. Left-leaning groups went through the same process and a few were actually denied. None of the Tea Party or "patriot" groups were denied.

      liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject

      Welp..... Would you feel comfortable if a political group that wanted to elect a fictional character from television got a tax break???? Would you feel comfortable if someone targeting your religion be given a tax break..... Inquiries are the IRS' job and Congress knows which groups were being targeted.... My point is that the loud voices seem to be coming from those who wanted the IRS to target GREENPEACE and the NAACP... The loud voices seem to be the same voices that withdrew funding from CORN because it helped register people to vote... it's making registering to vote near impossible in some areas, they created a bill that would have stopped me on the street and asked me for my papers because I'm brown, it wants to target MUSLIM churches for scrutiny... and yet the REPUBLICANS feels they are above investigation .... nnnnnnnah.. don't think so...  and as for the tags --- heh heh -- all I can say is "made you look!"
