Anatomy of a Bogus Scandal

GOP Knew of IRS Scrutiny But Stayed Quiet for a Year By: Rmuse:  May. 30th, 2013 There is little doubt Republicans do very little in an honest and forthright manner, and whether it is claiming tax cuts for their rich supporters create jobs and a vibrant middle class, or that denying women contraception coverage protects their constitutionally guaranteed religious freedom, there is always an ulterior motive unrelated to their stated agenda. There has always been something out of sorts ... Full Story

Another organization, of which I am a ... Full Story

A delightful afternoon with the IRS

Rev. James L. Snyder I do not get as many letters as I used to do, which may be due to the Internet or to the fact that I do not have as many literate friends as I used to. I still like getting a letter, as long as it is a letter and not a bill. Bill used to write me but he was always asking for money. I did get a letter this past week. It was unexpected but it was from a family member. Good old Uncle Sam sent me an epistle this past week. I was anxious to see how he was getting along. I ... Full Story

I cannot testify for anyone else, but I look forward to this marvelous opportunity, and I am careful not to waste it. This year, for example, so much has happened since last year it took 15 single spaced typed pages to include everything. However, to be perfectly honest (and who's perfect), I am a little disappointed. All the years I have included a personal letter ... Full Story
