  •  Your bold type and personal insults ... (0+ / 0-)

    make it pretty clear that you're hateful and angry. And like I wrote, I feel sorry for you. I'm not kidding; I think you're pathetic and want to help you get better. The only way I know how is to pray for you.

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    •  Your pretentious, insincere offerings (0+ / 0-)

      of prayerful charity (the biggest liars and frauds always wrap themselves in 'prayer' and religiosity) are poor substitutes for a direct rebuttal of the facts being repeatedly jammed in your teeth.

      The first sign of someone with no empirical case is a quick turn onto the ad hominem siding.

      Who do you think you're kidding?

      Have to warn you... your tag-team partner, 'Mr. T', is winning the Tea Party Apologist Olympics by a mile, but he's taking quite a beating from passers-by.

      If you work at it, maybe you can catch up.

      •  You keep using the phrase... (0+ / 0-)

        "jammed in your teeth." Should I be concerned about your aggressive nature? Or is it just part of your internet persona?

        If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

        •  You should be "concerned" (0+ / 0-)

          with your consistent refusal to accept what's passing before your lying eyes... countless 'Tea Party' groups with 501(c)(4) exemptions, actively involved with right wing campaigns across the country and shamelessly violating the terms for that exemption under the IRS Code.

          You should also be "concerned" with your chronic pattern of ignoring facts, preferring instead to wander aimlessly in the touchy-feely swamp of distraction.

          You're not talking to an amateur. If you have no substantive argument to make, go away. I have no interest in your 'feelings', ruminations and irrelevant chatter.

          Take your childish act elsewhere.

          •  I didn't think I was talking to an amateur. (0+ / 0-)

            But I am surprised that you'd admit it.

            As to your shtick, the entire thing is a red herring. The Tea Party groups could be the most evil, lying, tax-cheating organizations in the history of human kind. That doesn't excuse the IRS (and possible the DoJ) from targeting political rivals. It's illegal. And I'm sure you know that the IRS has admitted wrongdoing. They just claim that it was not intentional. But when emails are lost and a key administrator takes the Fifth, you'd have to be a fucking moron not to be suspicious... The kind of ignoramus who goes around pasting the same tired red herring over and over again while making personal attacks on those aren't stupid enough to swallow his tripe.

            If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

            •  Which of the LEFT-leaning "targeted" (0+ / 0-)

              groups were "political rivals" of the administration, imbecile? Surely, since you hock up that irrational canard with such practiced ease, you must have a supporting link... other than FOXSnooze.

              Fascinating that you'll buy a flimsy narrative, no matter how illogical and discredited by the known facts, that feeds your neurosis.

              Roger Ailes built a whole network to entertain low-information assholes who'll swallow anything.

              Bon appétit, moron.

              ... er, fucking moron.

              Buzz off. Do it now, and make it permanent.

              •  The IRS admitted wrongdoing. (0+ / 0-)
                A federal official who has been briefed on the matter said the investigation could focus on potential violations of civil rights law, including targeting groups based on political affiliation and infringing free speech. The official, who is not authorized to comment publicly, said authorities could consider possible violations of the Hatch Act, which restricts political activities of government workers.

                The IRS inspector general, in an audit issued Tuesday, said the agency used "inappropriate criteria that identified Tea Party and other organizations applying for tax-exempt status based upon their names or policy positions" instead of evidence of political activity.

                You want to make this about the politics of the Tea Party. But the issue here is corruption. Thus, your copy and paste rants are just red herrings. It doesn't matter that Roger Ailes is a right-wing asshole. That's irrelevant here. That is, unless you're in favor of corruption. I get the feeling that you're favor in corruption if it's your guys doing it.

              •  And if left wing groups were also targeted... (0+ / 0-)

                Why aren't you angry about it?

                I think we both know the reason. Or are you going to pretend that 100% of Tea Party applications were not audited and delayed?

                If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

                  At this point, you're in a delusional swoon, pulling insinuations and irrational assertions right out through your puckered rectum.

                  ... and I notice you've taken to cutting-and-pasting after self-righteously denouncing the practice. Startin' to lose it, are ya', Cletus?

                  My suspicion? Undiagnosed brain damage or chronic alcohol abuse.

                  ... and you still haven't addressed the screaming fact that there's been nothing — NOTHING! — by left-leaning 501(c)(4)s even approaching the in-your-face, across-the-board, direct involvement in campaigns by self-identified 'Tea Party' groups with 501(c)(4)s.

                  In your foggy delirium, reality is a fuckin' conspiracy.

                  WHERE'S THE "CORRUPTION", dickwad?

                  ... other than in your fevered, sweaty nightmares and Darrell Issa's soiled Jockey shorts?

                  SHOW ME THE FUCKIN' "CORRUPTION"!

                    Brazile said the IRS was "looking at everybody" including liberal groups and progressive groups. Yes, some progressive groups did have their tax-exempt status applications flagged as the IRS reviewed whether nonprofit groups were engaging in political activities.

                    But it wasn’t to the same degree as tea party and other conservative groups, nor did it result in the same actions. The list targeting tea party groups resulted in delayed processing that in some cases lasted almost three years and inquiries into their donors. Further, the inspector general found tea party groups were systematically singled out as part of an office-wide effort, while progressive groups were not.
