• IRS ‘scandal’ becoming a Right Wing orgy

    The Tea party is like a case of the herpes — it just painfully annoys you and stays with you forever.  Sure enough, the corporate media has another bad case of it, worthy of a Valtrex bomb. 

    Reported on Monday, the IRS is folded into a scandal in which the IRS is auditing certain conservative groups that had the words on tax exemption applications like Tea Party or other conservative buzz words that act like Viagra for the American Right.  Monday was a trifecta of “scandals” for President Obama and the ultimate boner pill for the Right Wing. 

    Benghazi, IRS, and AP wiretaps — they are calling it “Watergate Jr.” 

    I’d like to focus on the IRS.   Let’s give the IRS a round of applause for a moment. I mean it sincerely, with no irony or sarcasm.  Despite how this scandal looks on the surface, with a little higher reasoning and thought, the scandal actually alludes to a deeper problem that’s buried beneath the initial knee-jerk reaction.

    Don’t you think it’s totally bizarre that the Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court allows any political group to file for tax exempt status?  Right after the ruling in 2010, all sorts of Right Wing political groups masquerading as social welfare organization can now fund ads for political campaigns and not one dime of it is taxed.  Not one penny.  You can barely even find out who contributes to these groups with any transparency.   It is commonly called dark money, and it ruins our elections and democracy.

    Yet, today, I heard Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky express dismay over the President using the IRS to go after his political enemies.  Here is my first question.  What’s up with Rand Paul’s hair?  His hair is straight on the sides, and the top of his hair looks like a nun’s unshaved 60 year old muff.  What the hell is up with that nonsense?  He is an optometrist, and yet he doesn’t see his screwed up hair?  Oh, the irony!

    Wah!  The IRS might expose the fact that these “non-partisan” issue groups are just political groups trying to get Right Wing politicians elected — wah!  And yes, to the five conservative friends I have on my Facebook, the Democrats (I refuse to call them Left Wing) also do the same thing and shouldn’t be tax exempt either.  I am an actual Leftist and I really don’t have a horse in this race — I dislike both the Republicans and Democrats intensely.  The Republicans just make it a tiny bit easier to focus my ire and disdain upon.

    FOX News is having a full blown Roman orgy right now.  Good for them.  Anytime a group of people are getting laid, I feel absolutely fantastic for them.  Unfortunately, this orgy is filled with crusty old diabetic mall walkers and closeted homosexuals — with a few black guys peppered in the crowd (the GOP is a diverse group, ya know).  You all can thank me for that image in your heads later. 

    I’m not defending what the IRS allegedly did in scrutinizing certain political groups (although I am grinning.)  It’s a bit of dirty politics that is a blemish for President Obama, and about which the Right Wing can jump and scream.  However, I’m a firm believer that in every crisis there is an opportunity.  If I were advising the President of the United States, I would tell him the following.  “Mr President, you need to tie the events of the IRS auditing Tea Party groups to the Citizens United decision and money in politics.” 

    President Obama squandered a golden opportunity to turn this scandal around and change the conversation like the Republicans do all the time.  In my opinion, this was a huge tactical error on his part. 

    The Tea Party and Right Wing of America can trod along and continue their version of the Trail of Tears and perpetuate the myth of persecution from the liberal media or the homosexual agenda or secular Progressives (they aren’t real Progressives like FDR, they are just ashamed to call themselves Democrats).  They will pick a boogey man and have a most bizarre pity party for themselves, paid for by the Koch brothers. 

    As to this being an actual scandal, this “scandal” is my sleeping pill. 



    • This has been going on forever. The more corporations are “people” the more issues it evokes.I can’t stand any of this anymore. Sick of the politics of the US.

      If I could pry my daughter and granddaughter away from their happy home, I would move us all to Slovenia or someplace most people have forgotten…
