A View of the IRS Scandal You Won’t Read Anywhere Else

You have to love the politics in Washington. Any slip up or sign of blood and the sharks converge without mercy. So, the latest news inside our seat of government involves lower level IRS officials needlessly delaying or deny non-profit tax status to applying groups with conservative sounding names (tea party, patriot, GUNS-GUNS-GUNS). Of course the republican and conservative talking heads are rallying the troops and tying it directly to Obama. At worst, this was a move sanctioned by the White House, though there is zero evidence of this. At best, Obama appears to be too distant to know the chaos happening under his watch.

Well, I’m sorry, conservatives, but there is no grand conspiracy here. The truth of the matter is that a unique set of circumstances led to this pattern of discrimination. No major media outlet will point this out because it isn’t PC but is obvious enough that Blackneks is on the case.  First, you have to understand the demographics of DC. Politics and government is the biggest employer in town. This is what attracted thousands of Blacks from the South looking for good paying jobs with terrific benefits. The draw was so big that the city became known as Chocolate City. Most of the entry and middle level government positions, including those in the IRS, are fill by Black workers. And the large majority of these are democratic voters. Now fast forward to today, where you not only have a democratic president, but the first Black one as well, and you can see how the IRS unofficially became an Obama fan club by default. With the independent power that this branch of government, the bias against those groups with anti-Obama agendas simply was a unique convergence of demographics and history. This was a case of Obama fans with low level power using it to support the Prez without anyone telling them to do so. Sadly, people will be fired over this, and the scandal will cast a shadow over the Obama term, but the President was more of a bystander than a conspirator. A major flaw in how the IRS works has been exposed and should trigger needed reforms, but there is nothing more to the story than that.

World famous doctor gives Obama hard pill to swallow

At a recent White House prayer breakfast. world famous neurosurgeon Dr.Ben Carson spoke on the state of the economy and the country with President Obama at full attention. This alone was out of the ordinary since a prayer breakfast supposed to be served with a few slabs of preaching and politics over easy. Well the politics from Dr.Carson came fully fried and double portioned. He gave a prescription for saving America’s future which was contrary or critical to Obama’s positions on income tax, health care, and America’s debt crisis. Of course a swell of support has started already for ‘Carson for President’. That speech though was and will be one of the most important this year. No one could really criticize the President’s positions with as much weight as someone highly respected, equally admired in the Black community, and without a horse in the political race. To have such an intelligent, hardworking outsiders known for having ‘Gifted Hands’ lay it all out on the table creates an impact which can’t be ignored or dismissed. Dr.Carson is not some politician daydreaming about the healthcare crisis. His entire career is built around it day in and day out. A social conservative, medical profession not born with a silver spoon, and a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist church, Dr.Carson has a uniquely American story which equals anything Obama brings to the table. When he speaks, we as a nation need to listen.

Just as a side note, what a great idea it would be to have a true surgeon general…a professional outsider of great respect who can look at and diagnose the problems of this nation and give real, truthful solutions outside of the fog of Washington politics. Let’s be honest, politicians know they can just pass problems on to the next guy and continue to kick the can down the road. No matter where the political winds take Dr.Carson in the future, we all should be thankful for finally getting the pill we should have swallowed long time ago.
