It is certainly possible that the Cincinnati Office of the IRS looked more dubiously into tax exemption claims from various “Tea Party” groups than others.

But there are a few logical reasons this should probably have occurred.  There are two things true about “Tea Party” groups — They HATE government and they REALLY HATE paying taxes to that government they HATE.

The possibility such a group could be a bit a shady therefore is a bit higher than most.

Meanwhile, in news few notice or care about:

Thousands of documents obtained by DBA Press and the Center for Media and Democracy show how Homeland Security and local law enforcement were obsessed with the Occupy movement and other activists.

You can still punch a hippie all you want — but don’t you dare question the guy wearing a tri-corner hat in the 21st century!



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
