President Barack Obama is launching a frightening attack on free speech, using one of the most feared agencies in all the federal government: the Internal Revenue Service.
On Nov. 26, the Treasury Department and IRS announced new regulations “regarding qualification requirements for tax-exemption as a social welfare organization,” that is, 501c4 organizations. The IRS then goes on to specify what sorts of activities will henceforth be regarded as political activity, including, but not limited to:
•Any message expressing approval/support or disapproval/opposition to any candidate for public office. For example, an ad saying, “Thank Senator Smith for supporting our troops.”
•Within 60 days of a general election or 30 days of a primary election, any mention by name of any candidate or showing his picture, even without expressing approval or disapproval.
•Any money given by a 501c4 to a 527 organization, which citizens may give however much of their personal money they want to promote public issues they personally support.
•Voter registration drives.
•Voter guides that inform citizens of where politicians stand on various issues. •Any event within 60 days of an election at which a candidate makes an appearance.

If a 911 call could ever be considered cute, this one sure is. A 5 year old girl calls 911 when she realizes that her father has chest pain and out of breath. Take a listen to Savannah's call that was being replayed on a TV show...
