Do Not Trust John Bon Jovi

     Let's analyze some of the lyrics of his hit song "Living on a Prayer."

     At one point the singer passionately calls out "Take my hand, we'll make it I swear." (emphasis mine).

     Later, however, he dismisses the entire chase when he says "Cause it doesn't make a difference if we make it or not."

     How can it be important enough to swear on when requesting someone's hand, one second, and made so quickly irrelevant the next?

     No, do not trust this John Bon Jovi.

The "Targeting" Aspect of the Alleged 2013-IRS Scandal is Nothing

     The "targeting" aspect of the alleged scandal is nothing at all.

     The IRS has a pool of "social welfare" organizations to investigate for "suspected political activity."  Normally it would take information about an overt act to get put in this pool.  Someone took a short cut and said "If it has Tea Party, Patriot or 9/12 in the name, put it in the pool."

     The law says the 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations may donate to political causes, but the majority of their work must be something else.

     It is suspicious to name a group after something that cannot, by law be most of its work.

     And it is an overt act, just as naming a company which can't, mostly, do auto body work "Joe's Auto Body."
