To the shock of almost no one, it has been revealed that the IRS deliberately targeted non-profit conservative groups in the run-up to Barack Hussein Obama's election with the seeming goal of keeping these groups from exercising their first amendment rights.
The IRS claims no political motivation, but says that "low level employees" decided it would be a good idea to make life miserable for groups whose names included "tea party" or "patriot." Hilariously, when senior IRS officials found out about this, they said they were shocked, shocked!, at this abuse of power, and told their underlings to immediately change their review standards to something more fair: namely, targeting "political action type organizations involved in limiting Government, educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, or social/economic reform." Oh yeah, that's much better.
But the good news doesn't stop there! Thanks to Obamacare, the same IRS that is discriminating against people with dissenting political beliefs will also be in charge of enforcing your healthcare, including introducing a new form this January which will tie all of your health records to your IRS account - with all of its records of your political affiliations and donations.
But don't worry, you won't be denied healthcare by "low level employees" just because you happen to belong to the Tea Party or proclaim yourself to be a patriot.
On the other hand, if you're vocal about believing in limited government, economic reform, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights...consider yourself "shovel-ready."

When you think of it, the cartoon above makes just as much sense (and is just as offensive) as the Obama administration's attempt to tell the American people that the deaths in Benghazi weren't the result of a terror attack, but simply an outpouring of emotion by passionate Libyan film critics.
That story is unraveling fast, and even the mainstream media are now trying to maneuver their way out from under the potential crapstorm by suggesting - albeit timidly - that lying about terror and sacrificing American lives just to win an election is a bad thing.
Watergate was nothing compared to Benghazi, and all of those responsible need to be driven from office as soon as possible.
