Leno: IRS Can't Determine Powerball Winner's Taxes Until They Know If She's A Rep Or Dem
Real Clear Politics ^ | 06/06/13 | Staff

Posted on 06/06/2013 10:36:48 AM PDT by DFG

JAY LENO: Well, folks, the mystery is over. The winner has been revealed. After a month of waiting, it turns out an 84-year-old woman in Florida has won the $590 million Powerball lottery. $590 million, 84 years old. I bet her kids regret putting grandma in the nursing home now. Huh? Yeah, no. 'We love you grandma! we were just coming to see you next weekend. We didn't know!'

It's already gone to her head. She already had big rims put on her Rascal scooter, you know. She's got the -- she's going all out. Now, as for how much tax she's going to have to pay on that $590 million, the IRS said it's too soon to tell 'cause they don't know whether she's a a Republican or a Democrat. So it's going to be a while -- it's going to take a while to figure that out. Yeah. (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, June 5, 2013)

Leno the only fair and balanced person on TV

Obama ordered his IRS to rig the election of 2012 for Obama and democrats/socialists in the Senate. Obama also used other gov agencies to rig the election. Why isn’t anyone shouting this form the rooftops? Come on Levin, coulter , Sarah Palin, Rush, DRudge etc. call Obama out on this and call for Obama’s resignation.

Obama’s IRS prevented many tea party groups from getting started The IRS stole the election. We no longer live in a free country

Personally I think he’s trying to provoke the Democrat hacks who run Comcast/NBC into firing him so he can get out of his contract and go to work for Fox.

A good comedian makes fun of what is the news. No need to read any more into this.

My DIL works for Blue Cross and we were talking about the stupidity of the new 140,000 medical codes she is having to work with. She also said that if the wrong code is used, they can refuse to pay, but the way the codes are, it’s not easy. I said they should just have one set of codes start with D for Democrat and another one with R, then it will make it easier to know which to deny. Same with tax forms.

So if Jay wants to get out of his contract before then he'll keep piling on the Obama zingers.

Meanwhile, it’s good that a member of the media has turned against the big fascist.

shows the stupidity of government/socialism and that gov doesn't work. (capitalism) the free market works without any codes or planning just look at the exponential growth in smart phone,electronics ,software, tech.

all democrats voted for this monstrous Obamacare

And all the medical codes were written by bureaucrats, no medical. She said she was looking for “cardiac arrest” and closely coded to it was “bus driver hit by deer while outside of bus”.

perfect illustration of why socialism/government can NEVER work. that is so stupid, so inflexible .compare to capitalism for example the technology in free market electronics that changes almost daily and improves almost daily with no government bureaucrat planning or approving etc.

Ever notice how the original Cover your ass narrative of the IRS about the low-level Cincinnati employees being the ones responsible for this “goof” follows the template of blaming the Benghazi attack on reactions of a bunch of misguided Muslims who saw or heard about the anti-Islam video or a handful of malcontents who were just walking around and got the idea to “kill some Americans”, as per Hillary’s “scenario”? The reality of both situations puts the origin and the responsibilty for both “scandals” in the hands of
higher-ups: the Washington IRS overlords,on the one hand, and the official policies of Al Qaeda surrogate groups on the other. I’ve yet to hear questioning in the hearings which makes the comparison, but it is a useful one, and would highlight the thoroughgoing corruption of this Administration, and how far it will go to spin the truth.Like the old circus ride “The Rotor” you can spin and spin faster and faster until you’re plastered with centrifugal force against the outer walls, and THEN it’s safe to have the bottom fall out. It’s fun watching the bottom fall out of this Administration, though these scandals constitute just a couple of the 1000 cuts that are slowly doing them in.

Jay Leno might not understand this - but it's wonderful of him to make fun of both sides.

Leno's subtly telling people in power that they're hurting everyday Americans who happen to be conservative. Also, Leno's smart enough to know powerful Democrats will target him - with the IRS and others means - but he's still brave enough to stand with defenseless citizens. That's impressive. Jon Stewart's done the same. It means a lot to those of us being bullied by powerful people in our government.

Thank you Jay Leno - you're becoming a hero to me.

I remember hearing a story about comedy writers purposely refraining from writing any Zero jokes early in his first campaign and term. They didn’t want to touch anything to make Dear Leader upset, especially mentioning his ears. Did you see the Drudge Headline this morning? Obama tugging on his ear! LOL! The worm seems to be turning.

Rather I see Jay Leno warning those in power that the more attacks you make against the common folks, it is an invitation to angry blowback by those same common folks down the road.

Leno is out of the closet—he’s leaning towards the Tea Party side of things. Now that he’s fired and forced into retirement his true colors are flying—Keep up the good work Jay—We will need you in 2014 around the first week in November. Thats when we can use our votes to toss out the thugs and progressives—if that should fail.... We will need him to entertain the our troops in Texas.

All of the CPT and HCPCS codes were written by the AMA.

Don’t be so quick to say NBC will quickly can Jay Leno for his nightly attaks on failed POTUS Obama. His ratings are wiping out “all” his competition easily. NBC has never had it so good with Leno being in play on the late night show circuit!!!

As for Mr. Leno......Fox will grab him any time he desires to make the move!!! Then Fox will garner his popularity and high ratings!!! Jay is far from a dummie!!! He has got this game wired. He knows Obama is permanently damaged goods, and is now Just an old, useless “Lame Duck” POTUS. NBC/MSNBC is too darn stupid and dumb to see the handwriting on the wall!!!

Example: Did you know that “Morning Joe” (Joe & Mika) were beaten in recent ratings with FNC’s “Red Eye” (Greg Gutfeld). Did you also know that “Red Eye” airs at 3:00AM in the morning. The viewers numbers are as follows: “Morning Joe”, 133,000 viewers, Red Eye”, 155,000 viewers!!! Of course, the viewer numbers for the whole MSNBC network are in the toilet, big time!!! LOL!!!

SAN DIEGO, February 1, 2012 - Multiple physician groups have come out in strong opposition to the Obamacare legislation and to the under-handed, self-serving fashion in which the American Medical Association (AMA) gave its support for the law. The AMA sought to curry favor with the government to preserve their lucrative royalty monopoly on the medical billing codes that must be used to file all medical claims in the United States. These codes netted the AMA 72 million in the year 2010 alone, and evidently provided enough incentive that the AMA all but ignored the will of the majority of doctors in the country in their Obamacare endorsement.
“There is a reason that most doctors are not members of the AMA,” says Richard Willner, executive VP of America’s Medical Society (AMS), an AMA competitor. “Only 15% of doctors practicing in the community are members of the AMA because the AMA has ignored them, disregarded their ideas, and chosen money over principle in the battle to preserve the doctor-patient relationship.”

That's what the left wants - they want us to be violent so their lies stand. Of course that's not going to happen.

Liberals have spent years setting the stage for taking us out... they've told lies for years about conservatives being terrorists - members of some vast conspiracy. But it's just not true. Now the left is desperate... they need to create a situation - a Zimmerman like situation - but with the 'Zimmerman' really being a white conservative rather than a Hispanic democrat.

The press hates us - they're ready to run with anything dems come up with... Remember their response to the Boston bombers? Network news boys started speculating it was a right winger before the first victims arrived at the hospital. Then there was the 'terrorists' are white bit - with the "Muslim" part downplayed... Finally the truth came out, but think about it - they were after us, praying they could prove the IRS right - even before they knew the IRS was targeting us too.

Do you know why? It has to do with how the MSM gets their stories - who their 'sources' are... and how they could dry up...I digress.

Desperation is making liberals dangerous...

With the IRS scandal they've got to come up with something to pin on us - or they'll look like the totalitarian goons they really are. WE need to keep doing what we're doing - being law biding patriotic conservative citizens. Trust me - that's the best revenge.

NBC’s in the tank for Obama - they don’t care about Leno’s numbers - they get paid if Leno’s numbers are high or low. What matters to NBC is their connections to democrats and Obama...

Leno’s going to jack his ratings to the point that Fallon won’t be able to match.

Living well is the best revenge.
