Letter to the Editor
Saturday, June 8, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

When will the permanently indignant tea partyers quit their whining? First, it was “Obama wasn't born here,” then it was “Obama is a Muslim.” Now, they are whining because the IRS was doing its job? Their organizations are nothing but political organizations and do not deserve any type of tax-exempt status.

Americans should applaud the IRS for making sure the people funding the tea party aren't getting credit for charitable donations on their taxes. We've got enough tax cheaters already, like the multinational corporations that pay zero taxes and the Mitt Romneys who pay 14 percent.

Right-wingers in America better come to grips with the fact that this world is changing, this nation is changing, and their paranoid mistrust of anything they don't understand is dragging this society down.
