Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

We’re past Day 195 of the IRS scandal.

I mean the one about how IRS agents processing applications for tax-exempt status gave an especially hard time to Tea Party and similar groups, asking endless intrusive questions and delaying legitimate tax-exempt status for years or never granting it at all.

The botches and disillusionment occasioned by the Obamacare non-rollout have pushed other Obama scandals off the front pages. But as Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice argues, the IRS scandal won’t be fading from memory any time soon.

First, details of the agency’s wrongdoing, initially said to be confined to a few renegade overworked Cincinnati agents, are still being revealed and at higher levels.

Second, the IRS is still being sued by Sekulow’s organization.

Third, the scandal reminds us of how mean, incompetent, and corrupt the IRS is in so many ways.

Fourth, the fish rots from the head. Even if President Obama didn’t call IRS and say, “Start targeting Tea Partier types,” his many condemnations of such groups all but explicitly invited the targeting.

Fifth, Obamacare and the IRS are joined at the hip, with the rogue agency charged with enforcing Obama-mandates. This is like treating food poisoning by clubbing the sufferer’s kneecaps. If you’re the guy getting your knees smashed, are you going to forget about the role and nature of the perpetrator any time soon?

Well, there are millions of people now with bruised kneecaps.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    I beg to differ. Whether or not the scandal ‘goes away’ it will have no impact on the current administration. The media is all but ignoring it. Most in the media simply don’t care about what is happening to our freedoms because their oxen aren’t being gored. Heck, the administration’s supporters are getting exclusive interviews with the president. The scandal may linger but what difference, at this point, will it make? Absolutely none.
    The millions of Americans with ‘bruised kneecaps’ won’t care next year. President Obama’s name won’t be on any ballot. Most people will reelect their same senators. With the Senate finally invoking the ‘nuclear option’, judges who will uphold the ACA and shield the IRS will be appointed. The American people reelected this president despite his many failings and his open contempt for the Constitution he swore to preserve, protect and defend. We ignored the many warnings handed down and swallowed the lies, all for the promise of ‘free stuff’. We deserve our government.
