Since I’ve not talked politics in while

Perhaps you’ve heard that the IRS went out and searched their database for non profits that had the words “patriot” and “tea party” in the name and then proceeded to harass them over their tax exempt status. The IRS has been used to harass political opponents before.

And then, the JD went out and secretly got phone records of reporters who were not parroting the talking points.

And the admin releases a completely redacted document on text snooping as part of a FOIA request.

And, also, who is this Benjamin Ghazi person that’s in the news now that the election is over?

So, yeah, all that happened.

    Has the federal government become ungovernable?

    All these government employees running around doing whatever they want, however they want? It’s like the hired help we selected to manage the Executive branch aren’t able to effectively manage the government.

    Perhaps the federal government should be cut back to the core responsibilities? To many non-core program, the “elite” are unable to institute effective management controls and oversee the “low-level” employees.

    Is this what they meant by “most transparent administration ever”?

    Well, the IRS apologized. I wonder what happens if I send an apology instead of a 1040 next year.

    Ben Gozzi, pitched for the Braves when they were still in Milwaukee, I think. Don’t know. It was so long ago.

    Oops, meant that one for your Benghazi post. But, what does it matter anyway?

    Don’t forget the part about the irs passing on tax data about those conservative organizations to a prog website run by a couple who were in on the sub-prime mortgage fraud and funded by soros.
