    That was fun to watch.

    Ineffective and ultimately a waste of time, as a scolding has no legal ramifications.

    But still fun to watch a creep squirm.

    Not surprising that this investigation is tied in with the investigation over the IRS targeting conservative groups. Castillo got IRS contracts because of his disability.

    We just need to clean house at the IRS and make a simpler and easier tax code.

    What is surprising here is that madest submitted this. Because the democrats built this fraud filled bureaucracy.

    The fact that you say "conservative groups" proves how ignorant you are about current events.

    Well, she`s not going to get very far with an attitude like that!
    Where`s her under-the table deal to approve his application?
    She just doesn`t know politics at all.

    madest: "Refuting Democratic suggestions that progressive groups were also swept up in the IRS probe of the tax status of Tea Party organizations, the Treasury Department`s inspector general has revealed that just six progressive groups were targeted compared to 292 conservative groups."

    Link

    Perhaps it is you that is ignorant of current events.

    @CrakrJak
    I have a little trouble with your link. It says the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) claims that "All 292 Tea Party groups, meanwhile, were part of the IRS witchhunt." But the same TITGA`s May 14th report (pdf) shows that, of those 298 applications, only 72 were "Tea Party" related (plus 13 for "Patriot" and 11 with "9/12"). So, just 95 of the 298 were deemed conservative; from the TIGTA report: "approximately one-third of the applications identified for processing... included Tea Party, Patriots, or 9/12 in their names, while the remainder did not... the fact that the team of specialists worked applications that did not involve the Tea Party, Patriots, or 9/12 groups demonstrated that the IRS was not politically biased".

    CJ`s as ignorant as most FoxNews watchers Chalket. Besides he has no skin in the game but he knows how to fix it. He`s a Teabagger on welfare.

    chalket: Now you`re just parsing terms. Just because a group didn`t have certain names in their title doesn`t mean they weren`t "conservative" groups.

    The inspector general also said that 100 percent of Tea Party groups seeking special tax status were put under IRS review, while only 30 percent of the progressive groups felt the same pressure.

    madest: We all "have skin in the game" and your condescending liberal elitism is showing again.

    You see chalket, when madest can`t argue fact he resorts to name calling, a true sign of weakness.

    Annoying to hear a guy who doesn`t pay taxes complain about the IRS. If that make me "elitist" so be it.

    What`s annoying is a government agency abusing its power. Their actions should scare the pants off anybody. The fact that a good portion of the country don`t see this as a problem is an even bigger problem.

    What`s annoying are douchebag scam artists like Mr. Castillo, political dark money groups looking for tax free status. People who`s job it is to scrutinize being told they`re scrutinizing too diligently against scammers... Yeah there`s lots of annoying things. The GOP embraced a world class tax dodger as their nominee and now the right is about abolishing the IRS. You both serve your masters well.

    After that I think I have a bit of a crush on her, she`s very sexy when she`s cross.

    The situation with the VA is similar to the system here.... e.g due to my service I now have just short of one full lung, a severe nervous system damage that causes random pain signals and muscle contractions constantly around my body, and a few other bits and pieces that are fubar`d... I get a 50% disability rating..... it gives me the same pension value as a guy who I was supposed to be at basic training with, who tripped up getting off the military bus that took us to our training base, broke his ankle...and never completed even the basic training never mind served on the front line.

    I don`t know how he had the bare-faced cheek to claim a penny.

    madest: "The GOP embraced a world class tax dodger as their nominee..."

    That`s a "Pants On Fire" lie right there and has been proven so. But once again madest, you won`t let facts get in the way of your vitriolic rhetoric.

    What has been "proven" CJ, is Romney amassed a $100 million IRA in the Caymans, accepted amnesty for his UBS account and had his own personal rented tax free space in the Mormon church. Those are the facts that are known which I`m sure are only a fraction of the truth.

    madest: Those were all rumors, not facts. It`s amazing what BS liberals will believe when it comes from a liberal blog. It`s the same vile BS that was spewed forth against Sarah Palin and her children.

    The politics of destruction, liberals are keen to make up whatever they can`t prove.

    You suck on the government nipple and voted for a tax dodger. You are the problem.
