Tea With the I.R.S.

Today is Monday, 13 May 2013.

RE:  The tempest-in-a-teapot regarding apparent I.R.S. "targeting" of certain Tea Party organizations applying for nonprofit status (a status which, not incidentally, confers tax advantages).

What is the Tea Party?  It's not a single organization, but a movement noted for making tiny doctrinal distinctions seem like the end-of-the-world, and riven by diseased colossal egos contending for supremacy.  (For comic relief, it features straight males prancing about in powdered wigs and garish uniforms, while brandishing smooth-bore muskets --- 18th-century drag.)

The Tea Parties basic belief is in a fantasy:  that the nation can be re-organized along the lines of the social, economic, and political structures of 1776 America, when n-----s were slaves and bitches were property who knew their place was on their backs.  This re-organization would necessarily require the violent overthrow of the current United States in a "Second American Revolution."

And this isn't just wind:  the Tea Parties truly aim to grab power.  In the meantime, they demand that other taxpayers assume payment of their taxes.

In other words, the Tea Parties are political con artists looking to loot your pockets.  And they want you to pay for the privilege.

As one who has worked with nonprofits, professionally and as a volunteer, for more than 40 years, I can state unequivocally:  the Tea Parties ain't no nonprofits.

Were Republicans and con-servatives sincere, they would commend the I.R.S., not damn it for defending the Republic.
