    Yes this is yesterday's news. And what did they find out....nothing. And why shouldn't the IRS stop giving away nonprofit status to organizations who's only intention is to avoid paying taxes?

    Already with Citizens United you can give all of your money away for political causes. But that's not good enough for the Koch Brothers, Loren Parks and others. They also want to be able to deduct these expenses to reduce their tax burden.

    So they were taking longer on sham charities both liberal and conservative to provide approval.

    But as with people like Loren Parks he doesn't like to wait, he has money and wants his sham charity approved yesterday.

    As for Democrats, there use to be a day when people like Henry Ford would pay decent wages and the workers did well. But with the "media" press the articles are written that corporate profits must constantly increase so that stock prices rise and the "Captains" of industry are rewarded.

    So let's see the hands of those who believe that employees should only be hired to make tons of money for the corporation and forget the employees.

    Yes it use to be called slavery.

    "The democrats are the party of "give it away free".

    Not according to the stats. The states that pay the least and receive the most in tax money are almost all RED states.

    'Republicans believe that Americans are lazy and worthless unless there is some punishment if they aren't.'

    Wrong, Amus.

    Republicans say unshackle the people.
    Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves.

    Democrats say stay on the plantation.
    Democrats voted against Civil Rights, including Al Gore, Sr., Strom Thurmond and Robert KKK Byrd.

    Would you call what has been happening in Ferguson shackling, or unshackling?

    Um, batshitcrazysezwhat?

    I think I can figure out where your addled logic is going on the Trayvon Martin mention...but OJ? That is so out of left field and nonsensical.

    Like those who want to make their own reproductive choices...or want to make their own relationship choices...or religious choices...

    I don't remember the left wing cheering on the OJ acquittal. I know I certainly wasn't. Never in the history of guiltiness has a person been more 100% guilty of murder than OJ. No correlation to the "left". Nice try though.

    And let's forget about "Democrat" and Republican" labels and lets talk about conservative versus liberal. Democrats of old, and from the south are todays Republicans and were never liberals. Would Lincoln be alive today he would certainly not be a conservative. Reagan would be a liberal today based on the extreme right wing's requirements.
