Its neither of their faults or their job to know what everyone who works for the govt is doing or thinking.
I not only think that profiling from the IRS is wrong, I think all non profits shouldnt exist. Whether its the Morman church putting 20+ million dollars into the California prop 8 election or if its the Red Cross or if its the Koch brothers using it to get all regulations removed so they can make more money. All of these are exploiting their tax exempt status to influence politics while not paying taxes for it. The average tax payer picks up the tab instead.
I post articles that are interesting to me. If you arent interested in the whistleblower's motives or the Koch brothers influence being kept quiet or that the GOP is pushing this info in battleground states well then I have to say, Cmon, really?
Well, you and I agree; IRS profiling is wrong.
And agree that non profits should be done away with entirely. I'd do away with the IRS as it exists today, and replace it with a flat tax. Why the hell should we give tax credits to corporations moving jobs overseas, or Planned Parenthood, or tax credits for having kids, or for buying a house, or subsidize farmers? Gore them all I say.
I mean, where the hell is my river equipment tax credit???
But one thing; you just gotta quit blaming Bush/Republicans/conservatives for Obama's problems.
See, Bush appointed the head of the IRS, but the IRS head was working for Obama when this all blew up. So does that make it Bush's fault the IRS was targeting groups? Nope. Obama kept him and that makes him his man now.
With great power comes great responsibility.
I get that you have a hair in your soup over anything republican, or conservative, or anyone wealthy. More power, we can debate that all day.
But where's your outrage man? The next IRS audit letter could be headed your way, demanding a 10 year history of your face book page entries and demanding to know the name of everyone you ever hit the river with and threatening to impound your stuff if you don't comply.
