North East Tarrant Tea Party one of the groups screwed by IRS

May 21, 2013

Last week was a bad week to listen to talk radio.  As all of the information was coming out about Beghazi, IRS hounding right-leaning political groups and DOJ getting phone records of press people, things in America have been looking pretty bleak.

I’d like to say that the whole IRS thing was nothing new.  The Clinton’s were big into that during their tenure.  BHO (the president) joked about sicking the IRS on his daughters suitors during his first term.  It’s one of those things that we all expect is happening and somehow seem happier about it when we don’t really know for sure that it’s happening.

I’ve mentioned several times in blog posts that I try to attend meetings of the two local tea parties:  Boiling Point in Keller (though since they’ve been meeting on Tuesday nights, I’ve not been able to go) and the North East Tarrant Tea Party, functionally out of Southlake.

There’s a link to a local news story on it.  It’s far more outrageous and despicable when it happens to people that one knows.  It seems such abuses are waking more and more people up to the stupidity that seems to afflict the Obama administration.

Here’s a Statesman article on it too.  Interesting to read about it from an Austin person too.

Here’s my take on the whole situation. Every IRS agent who knew of this treatment should be fired immediately and when convicted of abuses of power, sent to jail for the rest of their lives.  Of course, this will never happen, but it’s fun to imagine.
