IRS attempting to intimidate TEA party?

A week or so ago I posted on how a TEA party was denied 501c status as opposed to media matters etc. The thread tanked with only two real replys and slid off the front page quickly.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1596024

Today I see yet another article on this topic. This one ponders the IRS posture towards these orginizations.

Are they trying to 'intimidate'?

Kinda odd considering the IRS ought to be checking out all these politicians running for president. Their getting millions and at least be charged taxes on it. In my opinion, "it's income"

Media Matters for America is a Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.
Fair use assuming its from their web site.

Then from the IRS

But then again hasnt zero appointed quite a few tax challenged people ? Only seems fitting that his cheerleaders enjoy the same perks.

Just started my 501c3 application process last week. It might take us up to a year.
It's odd how Dachshunds are born as Republicans but they almost always become Liberals after 8 or 10 days!

It's because after 8-10 days their eyes open and they realize they are weinnars and belong in the Democratic party!

Remember Anthony Weinar? He was the weinar who took a picture of his weinar and got in trouble for it. He was a Democrat.

It's not odd, by that time they've figured out how much easier life is when someone else feeds them, shelters them, provides for their health care, etc., and all they have to do is try to entertain the owners. Nope, they sound like they fit in the Dem party just fine. In fact, just throw in a few rapes, overdoses, and an armed robbery or two and they'll be an OWS group.

Of course not. obammy is going to need all the help he can get, and, with his Chicago style of politics, he is going to get a lot of help. obammy and his crew don't even try to hide it. According to the way he was brought up, this is normal.
