WASHINGTON (AP) The Internal Revenue Service is apologizing for inappropriately flagging conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS unit that oversees tax-exempt groups, said organizations that included the words "tea party" or "patriot" in their applications for tax-exempt status were singled out for additional reviews. Lerner said the practice, initiated by low-level workers in Cincinnati, was wrong and she apologized while speaking at a conference in Washington. Many conservative groups complained during the election that they were being harassed by the IRS. They said the agency asked them an inordinate number of questions to justify their tax-exempt status. Certain tax-exempt charitable groups can conduct political activities but it cannot be their primary activity.

I haven't filed or paid any taxes since 1993. I'm sorry. Does that apology make it all better now?
Angry Tea Party Patriot.
Apologize for slavery. Apologize for the Mavi Marmaru. Apologize for sprinkling the seat in a public john. Apologize for targeting conservative groups. Apologize for Pearl Harbor. Apologize for apologizing excessively for every stupid thing. Who cares. Has the North apologized to the South for Atlanta yet?
So was the KKK
No, they would not. They are people just like you and me. They wouldn't and didn't start shooting until their lives were in jeopardy.
Remember before they started shooting they were for years randomly taken as slaves for the Kings navy. They couldn't buy bibles and had Regular army sleeping in their homes whom they had to feed. Those caught practicing a belief out side what was legally allowed was flogged often to death in front of the whole town. Church's were burned to the ground. They had no way for the king to hear their issues.
that is what broke the back they were being killed and ignored.

CORRECTION.......IRS apologizes for targeting WHITE GROUPS.
I see your point and would also add that they did absolutely everything that they could to avoid the shooting. Including sending the King a list of grievences attached to their Declaration of Independence. Only after the abuses continued did they turn to the last resort.
Absolutely. I really hate the way our schools teach our revolution that was over some tax money. It is absurd and shameful. They were not murderers
