From the Daily Mail:

When a Tennessee lawyer asked the IRS for tax-exempt status for a mentoring group that trained high school and college students about conservative political philosophy, the agency responded with a list of 95 questions in 31 parts, including an ultimatum for a list of everyone the group had trained, or planned to train.

‘Provide details regarding all training you have provided or will provide,’ the IRS demanded. ‘Indicate who has received or will receive the training and submit copies of the training material.’

So John Boehner wants to know who’s going to jail? You can start with whoever wrote that letter.

And I do mean start.

What surprises my two high schoolers the most is the fact that their peers are not furious about the many ways the government is royally screwing their generation. Most of them don't have a clue!

Much of the infrastructure/apparatus described by Mr. Solzhenitsyn in his 'The Gulag Archipelago' volumes is already in place and being utilized by the goons running this country. This includes assassination. I believe your Mr. McCain inserted the means to arrest anyone on no charges and to be held indefinitely in the recent military budget or similar if my memory is correct.

Nothing the current administration is doing that we are in the know about is new to the world of tyranny. It is what we DO NO YET KNOW that is to me of even greater interest.

The so called "check" powers that the US Constitution stipulates is at rest or virtually non existent. There are FEW MEN in the US Senate or House of Representatives with the fortitude to even be allowed within those chambers. There are a few---granted. Very few.

"gee... it must be so dreamy in left wing fantasy land, where your side is never corrupt of evil, just anyone who disagrees with you....

even the children of your enemies.."

Actually, the left has been in the habit of punishing the children - and other relatives - of their enemies for quite some time. Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago indicates that the Soviets had an article of their Criminal Code dedicated to a category called "families of enemies of the State". Stalin's minions could - and frequently did - sentence family members of people who had been deemed enemies of the state to terms in the Gulag. In case anyone is imagining the camps in the Gulag to be some sort of Soviet Club Fed, only 1 in 7 of the people who entered the Gulag survived their sentences. That's not surprising when you read of the conditions in those camps.

This part of the criminal code applied not just to children of an enemy of the state but also to his/her spouse, parents, in-laws, grandparents, nieces and nephews. The person charged under this section of the criminal code was not required to have done anything at all; simply being related to an enemy of the state was sufficient to qualify for a trip to the Gulag.

Things are obviously not that bad in America yet but I think a sensible person will be vigilant lest a current or future government attempt to establish that that level of repression.

Regarding Watergate, in Watergate, the Republicans had Howard Baker, a Republican of principle who wanted to uphold the rule of law. There is no Democrat Howard Baker, and Democrats as a class no longer care about the rule of law. I predict that this will die down and that Democrats in general and Obama in particular will skate.

How do we amplify this? I need my brain dead, "Give me free stuff." neighbors to become aware of the massive abuse of power going on. Talking to them about freedom is useless, they don't want it, they want free stuff.

Tell them their free stuff will be paid for with the blood of their children and grandchildren, just as their freedom was paid for with the blood of their ancestors.

Tell them, when you get too much stuff the government will take it away from you too.

amen...

I wounder now what happened to America, and when did the democrat party allow their socialist thug wing to take over.. When Nixon had his scandal, the left went ape, hysterical about Nixon,.. and his real crimes were in the lies, the cover up. Now, their president has many questions to answer.. ,any lies to explain..

Even AP.. CNN.. C N and flipping N are telling us that Obama is lying..

The worlds polar ice caps have shifted, and the MSM finally noticed something the rest have been telling them for years.. Obama has a slimey past, and no regard for the rights of the opposition..

That the fringe left.. the kos, the Nyt's... are telling us with a straight face..

abusing their power wasn't only justified, it was a sacred act of justice against activists working out of their garages and spare rooms, that grassroots conservatives are the evil and must be crushed.. while THEIR grassroots, they get a pass and a cookie.. and oh..

a file or two about the personal finances of the enemy they hate with such fervor..

gee... it must be so dreamy in left wing fantasy land, where your side is never corrupt of evil, just anyone who disagrees with you....

even the children of your enemies..

.. and they call us barbarians..
