@Finn dAbuzz,


That is true because the minute Obama was elected the "mouthpieces " of the GOP, Beck, Limbough, and Hannity were all calling for pushing for the failure of his administration. AND so, since day one its been a new reality, one of No compromise and NO discussions between the parties. Even Bob Dole has been vocally berating his party. I don't hear a similar voice from the Dems though.

@farmerman,
And you are a perfect example of an intelligent and, usually, rational individual who has bought in entirely to the anti-Tea Party propoganda.

PS: Not sure how a link to the safest and quickest cooking device does anything other than prove you are an absolute kook.

as usual, we see things from separate universes .
I return the same to you. I think A2K of 2013 makes a perfect study for the socio-political polarization of the planet

@farmerman,
The difference, I would argue, is that I have been involved in the Tea party movement and you, most certainly, have not. I would venture to say you have also never been an actual witness to any Tea Party gathering, and yet you spew bile as if you had.

What's your evidence? Mother Jones?

I was at one in Harrisburg Pa several years ago.
You think that the Tea Party has some kind of grasp on intelligent thought?

I feel guilty about my failure to actively assist
the Tea Party; thay have deserved good support; my bad.

@OmSigDAVID,
don't worry, they had plenty of bifurcated focus groups. There was even a group of tea partiers that wanted Obama care tobe defeated because itd reportedly interfere with their medicare.

Interesting story this weekend. It looks like the media is starting to actually investigate those 501 c (4) groups and finding they were actively politicking so the IRS was correct to demand more info from them.

@parados,
That's what Ive been saying. The requirements of a c-4 are that their "politicking" be in support of their societal mission, not just pure party politics.
So , in actuality the teabaggers were attempting a defense based upon good offense

Any thinking person realized this. The tea party people have been breaking the law and getting away with it. Any involvement in politics is illegal.

And I suppose you and Parados believe that liberal oriented c-4s are all about social welfare.

It amazes me that anyone can be so partisan as to dismiss the IRS targeting of groups and individuals based on political viewpoint, because their ox wasn't gored.

@RABEL222,
You're simply wrong.

The prohibition against any political activity was watered down years ago. It's why Planned Parenthood can politic and maintain tax exempt status.

What's good for the goose apparently isn't good for the gander.

Liberalism is distortionism; that is not new.

One wonders why the IRS felt a need for a list of all volunteers in an organization. It that for taxation or something else.

Ive read the differences between c3's and c4's and while the c'4/s are given greater latitude in their politicking, their politicking MUST be about their primary mission which IS about social welfare or some position therein (like education etc)


neither is allowed , by IRS rules, to be a purely partisan politicking machine because that's what the political process is about. Youll see as several groups decide to sue the Teabaggers .
In an e;ection cycle a c-4 can "GET OUT THE VOTE" but it is not supposed to "GET OUT THE VOTE TO SUPPORT THEIR CANDIDATE"

That's in the definitions sections.
