I envision Buffaloed Bill with an aluminum hat and TV antenna coming out of it locked in his basement with the lights out. The only reason we have the paper any more is for the weather reports and crossword puzzles, it almost seems like it’s written in Boulder or other communist communities. Semper Fi Jerry
Mr. Bright

Mr. Sanders, you have hit a point here, it seems to me that Mr. Hugenburg has unlimited, unfettered abilities with the Sentinel. I have had several letters rejected by the Sentinel because they were over 300 words long, some less than 10 over 300. This diatribe by Mr. Hugenburg is 362 words of rambling crap that I couldn’t get through without being bored to death by the “It’s Bush’s fault” moronic rant.
Why does the Sentinel allow Mr. Hugenburg the opportunities to post, that it denies everyone else?

Geesh, you don’t think the Sentinel is biased do you?

Hmmmpt, perhaps I too should re-evaluate my subscription as well. If they won’t allow us to post as easily as he, why bother to continue to read his (Hugenburgs) rants? Mr. Hugenburg is the worst offender when it comes to name calling, unlimited ranting and divisionary tactics that I have yet seen. I offer the comments under this ‘letter to the editor’ as proof.

Mr. Hugenburg, your comments are as unwelcome as a skunk in a living room. (I really wanted to say a turd in a swimming pool but realized this is a family paper.)


Just a minor correction—-Hugenburg gets PRINT about as often as Penry, Grant, etc etc.

Buffaloed Bill is a Lawyer, he has created jobs, he is great, he loves himself, he has nothing but the facts according to Bill, if you google the goof he comes up as a reporter for the Daily Sentinel. I blame every Liberal that voted for the (0) in office and Hugy especially. Bash Bill day at the Sentinel. Mr.Bright

Creighton Bricker’s opinion that “IRS transgressions [are] more concerning than CIA hacking” assumes a false equivalency unsupported by facts.

The purported “IRS scandal” arose from the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United (January 21, 2010), after which the IRS was deluged with applications for tax exempt status under 26 U.S.C. § 501(c)(4).

Under that 1913 IRS code, only organizations devoted “exclusively” to “social welfare” activities are entitled to 501(c)(4) status, but—during the Eisenhower administration—IRS implementing guidance redefined
“exclusively” to mean “primarily” (50+ %).

Two principal benefits arise from 501(c)(4) status:  first, corporate donations to such entities become tax-deductible business expenses; and, second, the entity need not disclose donors’ identities.

Therefore, there was ample incentive for scofflaws to masquerade as “social welfare organizations” to obtain those benefits.  Consequently, some 300 “conservative” political groups (including about 75 self-identified “Tea Party” groups) applied for 501(c)(4) status, as did fewer ostensibly
“progressive” groups.

While “Tea Party” witch-hunter-in-chief Darrel Issa (R-CA) claimed that the Obama administration had “targeted” conservative groups, no such group was denied 501(c)(4) status (while several “progressive” groups were) – but many “conservative” groups were subjected to inexcusably long processing delays (because of their dubious eligibility).

In January 2014, the FBI concluded that there were no grounds for criminal charges (only bureaucratic confusion), but its investigation of Lois Lerner’s missing e-mails continues.

In July 2014, the “scandal” erupted again when Issa released a 2012 e-mail wherein Lerner described right-wing radio talk-show hosts as “assholes” (aptly adding that “we don’t need to worry about alien terrorists.  Our own crazies will bring us down”).

Republicans seem determined to prove her right!  While the Obama administration seeks to increase the IRS enforcement budget, Republicans keep cutting it – thereby depriving the federal government of $400 to $600 billion in uncollected tax revenues annually.

Thanks to Mrs./Mrs. Not-so-Bright and sad-sack Sanders for proving Lois Lerner right again!

Dear buffaloed bill kiss my ass, there I said it, you are a loser, a communist and a liar. keep up the good work. America needs more Liberals like you to show them what is wrong in the world, when were you moving again? God love ya man, if you are a man. Mr. Bright
