Why is the IRS apologizing for auditing these fringe groups who are undoubtedly being funded by very rich people trying to make them mainstream. I doubt very much that t-party funding is on the level.

It is reassuring to know that Max Bacchus is protecting the citizens of the far right as he must be up for reelection. How do they know who is conservative or not? Is that on an IRS application? Are you a conservative organization that is against this President? How would they know for some groups. This sort of sounds like the Joe McCarthy and Richard Nixon timeframes when people were put against each other. What limits will the government go to keep the SS, KGB, CIA, FBI, and other such entities such as the IRS, OSHA, EPA, BLS, and XYZ from checking into your political affiliation? Having lived in places where guns were used by the military/police to intimidate and put it in your ribs and say you couldn't walk on a sidewalk you have walked on for months, just because they had power.

What will be the next department that will do something similar without the higher ups knowing about their devious acts? With no one governing at the top that doesn't know these things are happening on his watch, when will it happen next? It will happen with HIPPA on our thoughts of privacy.
