    I've long been a fan of Jim Bovard and here again is another reason why.

    And that is why we are unlikely to ever have a "fair tax" system, politicians need the IRS

    [h=2]Map shows world's 'most racist' countries (and the answers may surprise you)[/h] [​IMG] The most racially intolerant countries are apparently all from the developing world, with Hong Kong, Bangladesh, Jordan and India topping the list. By contrast, it is the West which is most racially harmonious, despite controversial political arguments over issues such as immigration. Britain, the U.S., Canada and Australia were named among the least racist nations, along with parts of South America such as Brazil and Argentina.

    ...Racist views are strikingly rare in the U.S., according to the survey, which claims that only 3.8 per cent of residents are reluctant to have a neighbour of another race...

    LOL. Great survey.

    Political targeting has been a more common practice by gov't than most people would like or want to admit. Not just the IRS but also the FBI in their infamous CoIntelPro aka Counter Intelligence Program. The FBI would infiltrated numerous groups of varying beliefs and issues using not only informants but even provocateurs to instigate disruption, even violent outcomes to tear apart a given movement. The Civil Rights movement bared the brunt of this program but then various so-called rightwing/conservative groups also were no immune either. Even today the FBI still play the classic game of enabler, instigator, provocateur and thus raises moral and ethical questions about such practices.

    Political targeting is not something new but rather something of a long standing traditional practiced by both parties while in power to the benefit of their maintaining power.

    Seriously, do you REALLY think these tea party groups are "social welfare" organizations?? They are EXCLUSIVELY political groups therefore should not receive ANY tax exemption. This whole "scandal" is about one imprtant real actually. It is called DISCLOSURE. These tea party groups do not want their wealthy donators disclosed so they try to hide under the 501 c4 title. Just more greedy folks not wanting to pay their fair share.

    Do you think that NPR, Planned Parenthood and PBS are social welfare ???????????????????????????????

    NPR and PBS are PUBLIC entities. It would be like the library paying taxes. As for Planned Parenthood, they ARE are social welfare organization. Yes they might push for legislation or against legislation but they do give to repubs too. Main point is they are EXCLUSIVELY social welfare groups not EXCLUSIVELY political groups like the tea parties.

    Tax dollars go to these INDUSTRIES. Abortion mills are NOT nonprofit?

    Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers profit from Abortion. They operate from a business standpoint.From 2005 to 2006 Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, increased the number of abortions is committed from 264,943 to 289,650. With that increase, total revenue was over 1 billion dollars. The profit margin (excess revenue over expenses) went from 55.7 million to 112 million. This included taxpayer dollars in the form of government grants and contracts in excess of $336 million dollars (Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Annual Report 2006).

    In testimony before Congress, the acting Commissioner of the IRS called the intentional targeting of conservative groups merely "horrible customer service." No, this was a direct violation of the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens.

    The IRS can not be used as a weapon against your political enemies! Amazing leftist hypocrisy is glaring again!
