I've learned that any time anyone defends their opinion with "I'm just asking questions," their opinion should henceforth be considered invalid and the opinion holder should be considered retarded.

So we've got 8 years or so where any farkwad jerk that is also a tax cheat are going to be crying "I BE PREASURED BY THE IRS!!!1!!" when they get in trouble for not paying taxes.  That's just great.

"I never said that's what happened, and I'm still not saying it," Conners said. "I'm only asking that question."

Sounds like a Fox "anchor" to me.

I wonder if you took the same stance when Bush and Nixon used the IRS in similar manners...

Okay, fair enough. But with the present state of the deficit vis a vis illegals and immorality in the education system, what is your opinion of the level of blatant unconstitutionality of the entirety of the current administration? I'm just asking questions. Well, really just the one.

Hello, Larry Conners?  Fox News here.  You're just the kind of Fair an Balancedtm reporter we're looking for.  Interested?

/in 3...2...1

Conners had little to say about his future plans, but on Wednesday created a new Twitter account, @LarryConnersUSA. There he describes himself as a "Texan, Marine, gun owner, pilot, Harley Rider, poker player" and says "these views are my 1st Amendment Rights."

I sense a one-man radio station in his future.

Um, pal, it's not any less wrong when another person you don't agree with does it.  The problem I am commenting on here is that it is now going to become a meme with Conservatives for a while.  Don't pay your taxes --> get into IRS trouble --> blame it on a "vindictive" IRS.  No evidence will be put forth, of course, and it will automagicly be considered the truth.  Like Bengazi and every other manufactured crisis to date.

Coincidence, correlation and causation......how do they work.
 
2013-05-23 11:45:06 AM
Conners said he has had a tax accountant prepare his statements for years and that he and his wife had paid taxes for 2008-2010, but the IRS disagreed with the Conners over some deductions. He was on a payment plan with the IRS, he said, but after the Obama interview, the IRS cancelled the plan. In September a lien was placed on their Clayton home. The IRS declined to comment.

Either he has a point or he stopped making payments.
 
2013-05-23 11:45:33 AM
He will be missed. Just like the crazy guy who ran around naked downtown every Thursday night in April, just to welcome the spring before he won the lottery and moved south.

2013-05-23 11:46:31 AM
I think I'm missing something here.  Are we just assuming that he's a Teabagger because "ERMEHGERD IRS IS OUT TO GET ME!!", or did I miss the part where it actually said he was a Teabagger in that skimpy article?

Seems to me he just chose the wrong forum to post his opinion on. It was his work facebook page. That is a public space that represents his employer and PR does not want to deal with that sort of stuff. I am not supporting what he said, he has the right to say it, just should have been more prudent where he was saying it.

meh, if you look at the guy who replaces him in that time slot my suspicions are that they just needed an excuse to get a younger pretty face to head the spot.

99.998er: I was the guy on the grassy knoll.


That was you?

You totally parked in my driveway, you ass.  My wife sent me out that day to get some limes from the store that her fat, biatch mother needed in order to suck down enough vodka gimlets to shut her the hell up.  But, since I couldn't leave because some freakin' knob thought that MY driveway might be a great place to park so he could get a nice perch to spy the little Catholic kid, I was stuck with a sober mother in law and a pissed off wife.

So, I left that little slice of hell and decided to hoof it over to the movie theater to relax a little.

You ruined my life!

I remember this guy from my childhood.  He was anchoring the news waaaaaaaay back then too.  I am surprised to learn that he is alive.
 
2013-05-23 12:09:36 PM
It sounds like he was fired by being too 'honest' on his facebook and should have lied to appear like a rational person.
 
2013-05-23 12:10:06 PM
The guy has had issues with the IRS for a number of years now. A lot of people are holding that against him since he only recently began complaining about it after his POTUS interview. And because they are unaware that Obama went back in his magical time machine to simply insert the four year gap to discredit him.

"I pay my taxes, just like any other taxpayer," Conners said."I made payments every month."

You don't which is why you are making monthly payments in the first place.  You cheated, got caught and took advantage of a payment plan that is offered at the discretion of the IRS.

good on the station for trying to keep the objective reputation intact. around here our local stations are all conservative slanted. one is a Sinclair owned station that runs their propaganda pieces daily.
 
2013-05-23 12:42:38 PM
This guy used to be a reporter. Doesn't he know about 'Catfish'? Or is that even on any more? Anyway...multiple accounts people. Multiple email accounts, multiple twitter accounts, multiple facebook accounts. One is the 'real' you, the other you say exactly what you want to say.
 
2013-05-23 12:45:01 PM
But it is a fact that since that April 2012 interview ... the IRS has been pressuring me."

Don't you Americans also happen to have a big tax deadline in mid-April?

How about his IRS problems are related to his existing payment arrangement and whatever he did or did not file that year?
Like: "Hey, where were those assets when we negotiated your payment plan last year?"

Nah, that sounds too much like a conspiracy...

So station management did not believe that his having a dispute with the IRS would compromise his coverage or affect their reputation. But him revealing that he had a dispute with the IRS would compromise them.

yup.....a perfect example of Begging The Question.

If he wants to editorialize, he should get his own TV station to go with his FB page. I am sure Alex Jones can help him out with the details.
