Ah, the curse of short memories.); Or, perhaps it is a comprehension issue.To refresh,the irs didn't limit it's investigations to only those rightish leaning groups.Also, who's appointee was over this program initially?
BeRight. Looking back at this as it unfolded and the B.S. answers they were giving from the get-go indicates absolute lying and deception to a Congressional hearing. Now Federal Judges are involved and requesting an investigation. Will be interesting to see if they are lied to also !!
I think the issue with a federal employee taking the Fifth is not about their right to do so as someone alluded to somewhere in this posting string. I think in the case of the IRS, when she was basically asked if her organization was using the power of the federal gov’t, with the administrations implied blessing, to screw certain organizations, she decided on she needed to take the Fifth. Also, the IRS’s claim that the emails were lost because of a hard drive crash is incredulous. I have had computers crash before and every single time my IT guy recovered everything. And the last thing about computer crashes, don’t every try to use that excuse during an IRS audit because it does not work. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
"A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that New York’s strict new gun laws, including an expanded ban on assault weapons, were constitutional,.." (NYT 31Dec13)
Guess the Judicial side of their state Govt has no problems with it.
"make it a felony for a father/mother, to give his/her son or daughter a firearm."
And what could have possibly made them want to do that? Hmmmm...was there some kind of mass shooting that happened that involved a person getting a dangerous weapon from his mother and killing a bunch of kids?
Nah...it must be the govt just wanting to take guns...yeah..that's it.
Sounds like a great law to me - NOT !!!
 While no official proclamation has been made, New York City is not expected to offer any opposition given Mayor Michael Bloomberg's public support of the bill and help in drafting the legislation. Further, dozens of organizations, including sportsman's clubs within the state, the American Legion, the New York State Association of County Clerks, the New York State Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services, the New York State Conservation Council, the US Department of Veterans Affairs, and others, have all publicly denounced the law, and called for its repeal or amendment.
As of May 11, 2013, 52 of New York's 62 counties have passed official resolutions in direct opposition of the NY SAFE Act; some of these counties have directed their law enforcement officials to not enforce the SAFE Act within their jurisdictions. More than 325 local municipalities throughout upstate New York have also voiced public opposition to the law through village, town and city resolutions calling for repeal. In fact, the public county and municipal opposition to the SAFE Act is historic in nature. Not since Governor George Clinton took office as New York's first Governor in 1777 has any other law in the state's history garnered the sheer magnitude of official opposition and condemnation as Governor Cuomo's SAFE Act. Even in the state capital of Albany, the Albany County minority legislature issued a proclamation opposing the SAFE Act. Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties have yet to act in any official manner. While no official proclamation has been ma
As always the devil was in the details. This was more than just a BILL to close loopholes in background checks, they were also trying to sneak in the so called "assault weapons" ban amendment and make it a felony for a father/mother, to give his/her son or daughter a firearm. We must always take care not to pass any laws that suppress and infringe on the rights of lawful Americans. This BILL did exactly that!
"Look up the NY SAFE Act."
Yeah..I did and maybe you should too. The discussion was about how the Executive Branch of our govt was taking guns. The NY Safe Act was passed by the NY Legislature
"Exactly what influences you and your opinions?"
Many places, unlike fanatics that seem to lean too heavily on just the Right or Left.
Yeah..that whole Berghdahl makes no sense. What did he say that was so wrong?
"In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate"
The horror. No one should smile politely at such words.
Look up the NY SAFE Act. See how the NY State patrol is confiscating guns from people as we speak because the sheriffs refused to do so. Anyone seen as a threat to society with decades old run ins with the law are losing their guns ! Ever heard of Michael Bloomberg and his campaign against legal gun owners?? Google that. Come on man. Wake up !!
Exactly what influences you and your opinions ? Sounds like Kunect is exactly right about you. Maybe you should research topics before you defend somethings. A mind really is a terrible thing to waste.
"WOW you ARE an informed one arent you."
Yes I am. Note that he wasn't trying to take away any guns.
"a reaction to the Senate's failure to pass a key gun control measure that would have expanded background checks."
Pay better attention to detail next time. In case you didn't notice...Obama still has not tried to take any weapons from you or anyone else you know.

WOW you ARE an informed one arent you.
I had to look this person up. I don't watch MSNBC as much as it seems that you do.
"Look at the Berghdahl video where Mr B. says the prayer in Islam and watch Barry smile broadly. And he has said the morning prayer "is the most beautiful sound on earth"."
I have no idea what video you are talking about because I couldn't find any reliable news video on it.
And Obama NEVER said that the call to prayer as the "most beautiful sound on earth".
Let's also pause for a moment to remind everyone that your faulty claim isn't even evidence of Obama being Muslim. Just that the call to prayer was beautiful sounding and depending on who is singing it..it can be.
"It is NOT because he hasnt tried."
He hasn't tried to take a single weapon from you or anyone you personally know now has he? If he wanted to he could do one of those swanky Executive Orders of his couldn't he? Jeesh, there have been more gun sales in the last few years than ever so that's evidence that he has not tried to take weapons away.
