Well then...seems to me that if there were any groups denied their applications, would that not be all over Faux News, sans the redactions, much like all these alleged folk who have all those ObamaCare nightmares on Sean Hannity's segments of late?
I mean, let's face it. There has to be at least ONE of those alleged victims that's just ITCHING to come forward to inform the people of this nation to their plight.
Rumor, speculation, and innuendo doth not lead to a presentation of facts.
Keep digging though. It will keep you busy enough that your procession of rumor, speculation and innuendo will be slowed to a crawl.
Folks, even Darrell Issa has declared the IRS investigation to be at a dead end.
What POSSIBLE evidence could you dig up, that is going to convince anyone that Lois Lerner or anyone else deserves or is going to have their head chopped off for DELAYING tax-exempt status applications, since Barack Obama has been President?
I again pose the same question I asked earlier;
What is the name of ONE Tea-Party or Conservative group that was DENIED their tax exempt status by anyone in the IRS?
Claims of delays are quite innocuous.
Tax-exempt organizations, once ther application is received by the IRS, ARE ALLOWED to operate as a tax-free organization, while their application is under consideration.
Only in the instance where their application is rejected as a final decision, is their tax-free status denied.
And to this very day, not one Tea-Party or Conservative group that applied for tax-free status was rejected, AS A FINAL DECISION.
Not one group, outside of the aforementioned left wing group, has had to pay one cent in taxes to the IRS after applying for consideration to become an official tax-exempt organization.
Does that give you any reason to being to understand why it is that Darrell Issa is operating with a limp noodle?
Rick wrote: "Al, Emerge America did not comply with the law that is why they lost tax exempt status. Tea Party organizations applying for tax exempt status were stone walled and purposely delayed not because they did not comply with the law but because in my opinion The Obama Administration did not want them raising money for the 2012 election."
I'm going to use that argument the next time I am at the Doctor's office.
ME: "Isn't it about time you people quit stonewalling me?"
RECEPTIONIST: "Mr. Provancher, we're a little behind today due to our patient load."
ME: "You're purposely delaying me, aren't you?"
RECEPTIONIST: "I'm sorry, but I refuse to answer that question and am invoking my Fifth Amendment right to not answer that question."
MR: "Where's a phone? I'm calling Congressman Darrell Issa."
RECEPTIONIST: "It's right over there on the wall. Knock yourself out."
Z-man: Definition of sycophant (n)
[ síkəfənt ]
1.fawning flatterer: a servile or obsequious person who flatters somebody powerful for personal gain.
Pray tell what possible gain have I achieved by "fawning" over our President, that is, that I could not have achieved had I joined you in total condemnation of the man?
He's certainly done me not one personal favor, except head this nation for five years, 635 miles from my home, without either one of us having a two way conversation...well with the exception of my e-signing of his national birthday card a couple of times.
I AM happy to report that I seem to be in good standing with the IRS, but then that is nothing new for me.
Gee...I've been racking my brain for an hour, trying to understand what personal gain I have been awarded for being an Obama supporter, and can't think of a thing.
I sure hope you will enlighten me. I'm not fond of being called a sycophant.
It kinda sounds like being called a whore and I know I'm not one of those.

You've been "criticizing" the man for six years, under your current and your former anonymous identities in this forum.
How many times have you been audited by the IRS?
You don't realize it, but the other day, you let something slip that gave your former identity in this forum away. I wonder if anyone else noticed it.
Sir, Barack Obama has been ignoring more crap than any man in history. I'm sure he laughs his ass off at people like yourself, too dumb to realize that anything you write is a fart in the wind.
"He's a proven liar, and a narcissist."
So are you.
"Nobody will impeach BO."
"First of all, and most importantly, he's black."
But of course. Black people in this nation, accused of malfeasance, are never prosecuted for any crime.
"Secondly, both parties are in on the corruption."
Say it isn't so.
"It's all theater. GOP says things to give the impression that they're outraged, but do nothing. Dems attack the GOP, and nothing changes. Both parties want the status quo."
It isn't every man for himself? Self-preservation?
"You libs squeal about how about the Democrat Party is so much better, but the reality is that they've both ruined this country and work together to hold on to power."
I never squeal, I assure you. My voice doesn't begin to go that high.
"No real American should be ok with this. No real American would be ok BO in the WH, or Hellary. Going from a bitch to a shrew is a nightmare."
Sir, I can neither prevent or augment what is destined to happen. Hillary is going to be the next President, like it or not.
It's in the bag, unless...she is caught in bed with a live boy or a dead girl sometime within the next three years.
But Rick...where are all the "conservative" groups that were denied their tax exempt status by the IRS?
Is that crickets I hear chirping?
Z-man wrote: "Sure, Issa is like McCarthy. You must be high."
You know what? You're right. There is no comparison now that I think about it.
Joseph McCarthy ruined many people's lives. Darrell Issa has been quite impotent in that regard. He can't seem to hit a target from five feet away.
"By idiot you mean Pelosi."
I think I was clear who I was referring to, but you won't get any argument from me that she is one too.
"BO doesn't work at all, let alone for the American people."
Sorry, but you're out-voted on that claim. By the end of this year, there's not going to be a thing that people will believe that emanates from a Republican. They have just about all spent their entire wad chasing ghosts.
"You're just BO sycophant."
You think that insults me? I'm a PROUD Obama supporter!! He and I understand each other. He and I are BFF's!! He is one man I would love to meet in person. I like him and I always will like him.
I am on the official White House email list. I'm in the club my friend!! I'm not going to be targeted by the IRS. I sleep every night all night long confident and comforted by the fact that such a man is leading this nation.
You seem to feel the need to express your discomfort continuously. I expressed the opposite one time, in a couple of paragraphs.
You Sir, are the one with the problem. It is not I.
"The IRS has been used as a weapon before, and BO is doing the same. He's no different."
Yep..."Dead End" Issa sure has gone a long way in proving it too, hasn't he?
You're the one hitting your head repeatedly against a brick wall, expecting that it's not going to hurt.
I haven't had a headache in years....
Time to remind some of you that Barack Obama is STILL the President of the United States, he will be for most of the next three years, no indictments will be forthcoming against anyone in his Administration, and you folk are destined to continue to whine like newborn puppies for the next three years.
THEN you will move on to eight years of whining about Hillary Clinton.

Rather than to simply ignore being caught relating yet another in a long list of lies, you're going to dig that hole a little deeper, eh?
You're nothing, if not totally pathetic.
"Think of a BIG name in the carpet biz."
Do you mean like YOU think of claiming to pow wow with a BIG name in the carpet biz?
Maximyth, why do you even try to retain any one of your lies? I'm quite sure not one person believes a damn thing you type. You can't even TRY to keep your lies straight.
Just a reminder how many different ways you have claimed in the past to earn your living;
"Oh and Gaus if you are not missing a limb because of self inflicted gangrene like Alpeg then dude you should be working full time instead of whining like a little girl about corporate welfare and how "unfair" life is."
I'm going to walk again very soon. Even without a leg, I have purchased all the disability equipment I need to regain my personal independence.
Unfortunately, there seems to be no fix for what ails you. You're the only person who can stop living an online life of fantasy.
I've never met a reformed pathological liar. They just get older and the list of lies keeps growing.
Your chances that you went golfing yesterday, anywhere, are right on par with mine.
You love calling other people "losers" all the time.
I lost a leg, a very temporary situation for sure, but outside of that, I am a total winner.
Hey...if you even have a job, I want to personally thank you for contributing to my current system of sustenance.
I've not been proud of where I find myself today, but in your case, I will make an exception.
Keep on working so you can help keep me in the lifestyle I am quickly becoming accustomed to.
The fact remains that while Republicans have been on witch hunt after witch hunt, trying anything and everything to convince the American people that the Obama Administration is the most corrupt...ever, it's hard not to notice that working on behalf of the American people has taken a back seat.
And this is why I will be laughing later this year, for all these fine Republican candidates are going to have exactly no record to tout and hold up as a reason for anyone to vote for them.
Issa won't be up for reelection until 2016 and with a 17% approval rating, according to some polls I was browsing this morning, it probably will not be very hard to find someone who can displace him.
Yep...Darrell "Dead End" Issa has spent just about any and all political clout he may ever have had.
I'll be the man has a photo of Joseph McCarthy on the wall of his office, and he's destined to go down the tubes like that man did.
But then, Nancy Pelosi is still in office, so who knows what voters in the 49th District will do in three years. They might actually vote to keep that idiot in office.
