Default IRS ADMITS TARGETING CONSERVATIVE GROUPS

IRS ADMITS TARGETING CONSERVATIVE GROUPS


WASHINGTON (AP) The Internal Revenue Service apologized Friday for what it acknowledged was "inappropriate" targeting of conservative political groups during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status. About 75 groups were inappropriately targeted.

IRS agents singled out dozens of organizations for additional reviews because they included the words "tea party" or "patriot" in their exemption applications, said Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups. In some cases, groups were asked for lists of donors, which violates IRS policy in most cases, she said.

Lerner acknowledged it was wrong for the agency to target groups based on political affiliation.

"That was absolutely incorrect, it was insensitive and it was inappropriate. That's not how we go about selecting cases for further review," Lerner said at a conference sponsored by the American Bar Association.

"The IRS would like to apologize for that," she added.

It's ok when libs do it, don't worry.

Insensitive? It's political persecution and abuse of executive power.

IRS officials claimed that there was no political bias behind the targeting of these conservative groups, but they failed to produce any examples of similar targeting of groups with non-conservative-sounding names............

Considering you are a middle-aged person spending a majority of your social time pissing in the ear of people half your age online, I don't know if you should be talking about potential. Must be a humbling feeling knowing that your "best" days aren't ahead of you and have already past you by, huh? Sure sounded like it when you told me stories about what you are doing with your life that you felt so bad about that you didn't want others on here to know.

At any case: Your version of the "American Dream" and mine are probably quite different. As it is for most people. That is how it sticks around, because it can re-invent itself. It may be a central ethos in American culture, but it is highly transient and the concept of what it means has greatly changed through the course of history in this country. Never really bought into the myth, but it is obvious you did. Big houses, business endeavors, big trucks, materialism and ownership, being all about yourself. You are pretty much like everyone else. Boring.

At its core, the old protestant belief and fables of going from rages to riches -- emphasizing individualism is highly contestable. I could begin to talk about coercive and mimetic isomorphism, elite theory, marginalization, mobility, etc. but it would be a waste of my time because we would get into areas that require high intellect that you would be unable to participate in because you are not an educated person and lack the critical thinking skills necessary to engage in such talks.

I am a firm believer in having your own dreams, sets of goals and lists of things to accomplish. Fortunately, I was raised well enough to not get in competition with the Jones' and am smart enough to avoid the pitfalls socially and economically that plague this society. Very pleased with my life experiences so far and am stoked for what is to come. I know I will get to where I am going . . . and I definitely know I won't be a miserable middle-aged malcontent such as yourself demonstrating your behavior 20 to 30 years down the road.

JFC..Tiny Tim your really are a p***Y, the way I see it you spend half your life on the OM. Most guys your age are working their ass off to support a family but on the bright side we wont have to worry about you pissing in the gene pool and passing your lazy ass DNA on to others.

Good deflection, but he's pretty much right.

Your "potential", if there ever were any, was used up long ago. Now you'll just be another old POS with a bone to pick. Your only contribution to society will be the taxes you pay, which is kind of ironic, considering your ideology.

You apparently don't see too well. I get a lot of downtime at work where I'm allowed to mosey on the forums because I do my job very well. Multi-tasking might be hard for you, but it comes naturally to me.

Except that really isn't the case. You wouldn't have a clue on what is going on with my generation. You are so far socially detached from anything that resembles reality that you don't really have a dog in this fight to make an assertion, but I will humor you.

There aren't many people in the Millennial generation at 26 who are popping out kids and having families. Out of all my high school and college friends, I can only think of a handful that are actually have families at this time. Things aren't like they used to be.

Most are enjoying themselves, pursuing graduate school aspirations or building a foundation for themselves to that in the future they can afford to have a family. Considering the economic climate for most recent graduates in my peer group and those forthcoming, having a family is simply something they cannot afford, and for most they just don't have an interest in.

I do know some people at my age (or younger) who are having families outside of marriage, get their girlfriends to be on WIC and social welfare programs to help pay for these things. Usually, these are the kids that didn't get **** rolling for them in high school, nor ever tried to better themselves. You would be more apt to direct your comments to them.

I will decide to have children when I am ready. I have a lot of things I want to do personally that would not be possible if I was tied down with a child. It was one of the primary reasons my ex and I aren't together because she wanted to start a family while in school and there was no chance in Hell I'd roll with that.

But keep it up man. You demonstrate every day how sad and pathetic of an individual you really are. Trying to attack me saying that I live in a basement (), don't work () and all this other stuff, while passing off PM's to other people on the board trying to bring me down. What are you, a 16 year old girl? You read my posts and probably think I get all flustered and angry with your diatribe. I don't. I just laugh and smile knowing that I have been blessed to the point where I will never be as morose and empty as you are.

As usual you display your juvenile attitude that you can slam people with below the belt personal insult but - heaven forbid - they return fire, you suck your thumb and run to the admins trying to have them banned.

As I stated before, these kinds of comments out of you are grossly uncalled for and are a reflection of your unhealthy inner mentality. In short, as I said, you need a shrink.

it is OUTRAGEOUS that the IRS or any government agency "targets" any group, unless they consider it a "clear and present danger". oops. what? oh, yeah, those domestic terrorists that the left is so afraid of.

Just another excuse for the hard right to fantasize that they're victims.

So if the right are targeted and the feds admit they target them for political reasons, it's a mere "fantasy" that they're victims.

Is that poop or IQ?

Neither am I, the liberal hypocrites. It was them that under Bush and the Patriot Act crapping their pants, telling any and everyone how innocent people would be targeted unfairly and illegally in their minds. Of course now that Obama is president, it isn't such a bad thing anymore. Now the IRS admits to targeting people for political reasons and it's ok. The hypocrisy has gotten to the point of such foolishness that even trying to debate any issue with a liberal is beyond a lost cause. If they will tell you 2 and 2 is 5 when it suits their politics, there is no reason to spend much time with them. They are dead set in their thinking and if they have to distort or as usual, apply their double standards so they can be "right", then they will and do every day, all day. This is why talk radio doesn't work for liberals since hearing what they say and do just makes them sound so incredibly stupid, even to other liberals.

What does passing legislation the encroaches on civil liberties have to do with the IRS illegally targeting one group over another?

Nice try, captain false equivalence.

Do an investigation, see where it leads, just like anything else...oh except our decision to go to war in Iraq. Because heaven forbid we acknowledge the truth about that.

Joining an organization in support of your political beliefs is a civil liberty. The equivalence is pretty solid.
