well said Nico.
As Will Rogers used to say,
It ain’t what people don’t know that bothers me.
It’s what they know for damn sure that just ain’t true that bothers me.
There are a lot of folks that are absolutly certain about things that just aren’t true.

So If a government agency, say the IRS, practices discrimination -“treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual” that agency is breaking ones constitutional rights- correct?
So even if the Tea Party groups did not qualify for tax exemptions, the fact that they were singled out and evaluated in a way different from other applicants would qualify as discrimination, right? If this is correct, why are the legislators focusing on the tax angle and not the discrimination angle?
Just curious. Seems the subject would have more strength if they actually used the ‘d’ word.
