GRACELAND: Special Guest T.J. O’Hara on ISIS, the IRS, politics and Keystone Pipeline

Graceland is a lively hour of political commentary and discussion on Communities Digital News Hour


Author, speaker, consultant and Communities Digital News contributor, T.J. O’Hara, stops in to talk with Jennifer Meadows and co-host Curtice Mang this week on Graceland.

We will start off with the latest on the most recent video murder by ISIS and it’s, according to President Obama, “whatever ideology.” It is yet another tepid response from the Commander in Chief.

Switching gears, T.J. O’Hara will join us to discuss some rather interesting stories from the IRS. When one dies, the IRS sometimes doesn’t take no – or a death certificate – for an answer. Well, in a slightly different twist, being alive may not convince the IRS that you are in fact still alive. Stop confusing it with the facts.

And if you thought wading through was taxing, wait until you have to have to figure it out on your tax returns. There is the 1095A form to complete, which also requires the 8962 form. And don’t forget to fill in line 61 on your form 1040…or something. And if you can’t figure it all out, the IRS is there to help. Seriously, that’s what they say! We’ll try to sort it out.

And if that’s not enough, what exactly does the United States Post Office have to do with the Keystone Pipeline? T.J. will fill us in on efforts to attach an amendment the Keystone bill in the Senate that would prohibit the Post Office from moving ahead with its planned closing of facilities. Otherwise, as many as 7,000 government jobs could be lost. And we know how Democrats hate to see any government jobs go away. Would this help or hurt chances of a presidential veto?

And then we have some fun with millennials. A recent survey sheds a bit of light on some of their political knowledge and leanings. For example, they like Hillary for President in 2016 and really like whoever their current home state US senators are, if they actually knew who any of them were. The greatest generation…not exactly.)
