Letters to editor

Deserving of bonuses, really?

The Internal Revenue Service first targeting conservative organizations looking into voter fraud, that educate folks on the constitution, that promote a conservative way of life and that educate future leaders. So what comes next?

  • The leader of the IRS taking the Fifth Amendment before Congress and finding herself in contempt.
  • IRS workers to get $65 million in bonuses.
  • IRS workers to get bonus time off.
  • 1,100 IRS workers getting bonuses who have not paid their income taxes.

What next?

Is it good that we have such loyal government employees, who clearly do not think it important to follow the laws like most taxpayers do? How could anyone, conservative or liberal, think this would be tolerable?

    Margie - you haven't been paying attention to CD, Mike, or RLW! Don't you know this is all just another FOX conspiracy theory which is getting in the way of Congress and the President doing their jobs?

    Yes, this letter is a good example, from a familiar source. The fact that you can't read it objectively and critically shows you are part of the problem.

    @Teach: Lets see, the fact that the letter writer left out that progressives were targeted along with so called groups that "educate folks on the constitution"(Ha). Where is all this voter fraud, that the Foxbots are talking about? It is more like how to stop people from voting, in order to win elections. One would think that you would eventually see the strings attached to your arms and legs. Of those bonuses, it is reported that 1,100 split 1 million dollars. Wow, we are talking big money picture here, for people who owe the IRS.

    The facts speak for themselves Danny. You were lied to by Elijah Cummings and the rest of the Rat Political Party thugs. You chose to believe them. It turns out that only conservative groups were targeted by the rats. You took their side. You believed them. That reflects poorly upon you and all your lying and spinning won't make it go away either...LOL!! (@you)

    Let's see, conservative groups targeted compared to "progressive" groups, something like 40 to 1. Oh yeah, really hitting the progs real hard there. How many progressive groups were asked for the content of their meetings like some religious conservative groups were asked for the content of their prayers? How many progressive groups had their tax information illegally shared with the Justice Dept like happened with some religious conservative groups?

    @Dave: From NPR, "46 of the approved groups on the list had Tea Party or patriot in their names, 76 were otherwise conservative-leaning groups and 48 were nonconservative or progressive.". Where did you come up with that 40/1 ratio???

    Salty Dog, the day you bring a quality argument to this board you can speak up. I don't think we are in any danger of that happening...ever.

    Notice it's not just conservative organizations, but conservative organizations "looking into voter fraud." That plays into the conspiracy theory that Democrats, led by chief 'rat, Obama, depend on illegal voting to win elections. Like most such conspiracy theories, no amount of non-evidence will disprove it.
