We’ve out there in deep right field blowing dandelion seeds into the breeze and just making up crap to be upset over.
Why…just yesterday, we got all bent out of shape over the IRS and a new revelation discovered by Issa’a house committee showing that…just before the 2010 midterm elections…the IRS sent over a few…just a few…pages of American’s personal information to the FBI.
You know…personal information that is supposedly protected by federal laws that state the IRS and ONLY the IRS is to have access to.
Okay…it was just over 1 MILLION pages but, who’s counting. Anyway…by comparison…the Obamacare bill that nobody read and yet is still causing so much trouble was only 2700 pages but again…who’s counting.
According to Issa; “The IRS apparently considered political speech by nonprofit groups to be so troublesome that it illegally assisted federal law-enforcement officials in assembling a massive database of the lawful political speech of thousands of American citizens, weeks before the 2010 midterm elections, using confidential taxpayer information.”
Imagine…citizens groups that don’t make a profit engaging in free speech. Shameful. The exact sort of thing the FBI should be looking into and the sort of people on whom the FBI should be making files.
Now, I KNOW what Conservatives are thinking…SCANDAL…SHREDDING THE CONSTITUTION…STOMPING ON FREEDOM OF SPEECH…USING THE IRS AS A POLITICAL WEAPON…FBI AND GOVERNMENT INTRUSION…
