It’s been a rough year or so for the Internal Revenue Service. The agency has been in the news for “losing” key computer records that Congress wants to investigate. There was the scandal over high-level attempts to investigate and intimidate churches. And there were the demands that certain conservative and Christian groups reveal their prayers and promise not to oppose Planned Parenthood.
Oh, and don’t forget the agency’s huge role in collecting funds for Obamacare.

“If the Republicans want to lose guys like me — and a whole bunch of still God-fearing Bible-believing people — go ahead and just abdicate on this issue, and why you’re at it, go ahead and say abortion doesn’t matter, either.”
“Because at that point, you lose me. I’m gone. I’ll become an independent. I’ll start finding people that have guts to stand. I’m tired of this.”
“I am utterly exasperated with Republicans and the so-called leadership of the Republicans who have Read more [...]
State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki would not directly respond Thursday to a question from CNSNews.com asking her how many American Ebola victims would be an acceptable price for the American people to pay for the administration’s policy of allowing people to travel to the United States from three Ebola-stricken countries in West Africa—without even putting them through a quarantine period.

President Obama gives higher priority to his two loves—golf and political fundraisers—than he gives to America’s national security.
President Obama spends more time golfing than on national security.
On average, it takes four hours to play a round of golf. President Obama has played about 200 rounds since he took office. That’s 800 hours.
It takes about 45 minutes for him to receive a national security briefing. Most days he skips those briefings–almost 60% of the time, in fact. Read more [...]

I thought I’d gotten used to all of the things Democrats seem to believe are rights… but I hadn’t.
The Democrat Governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley, recently told CNN that he believed WiFi was a human right.
“Baby boomers and older were often told that if we specialize in terms of our skills, we will be more secure and prosperous, that the definition of ‘making it” was living out in the suburbs as far way as possible with the biggest lawn possible,” he said. “Young people Read more [...]
Following the rise of the Tea Party and the 2010 elections, the IRS began targeting conservative groups, many believe on orders from President Obama himself.
The targeting involved delaying applications for 501(c)4 tax-exempt status, which allows people to deduct their donations from their taxes. The targeting also resulted in an increase in the number of conservatives being audited by the IRS.
