when you hear the “Progressives” talk about increasing taxes on the rich, just remember: We’ve been doing this since 1913. There is nothing “forward” looking, or “progressive” about continuing a century of failed ideas.
In a six year old, or an eighty year old, 90-degree humor is charming and adorable. In the Attorney General, Secretary of State, or Commissioner of Internal Revenue – yeah, not so much.
It would appear the underlings are all falling in line in order to protect the commander-in-chief. In fact, I’m quite sure that if Obama was asked about the Associated Press phone hacking situation, which has quietly slipped away from the front pages of the newspaper; he would definitely pull a Sergeant Schultz (“I know nothing.”)
Why is it always such a shock when news emerges that the government is doing something underhanded and illegal? The allegations that the IRS was targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny have now expanded to the uncovering of the fact that they were also singling out Jewish groups that were pro-Israel.
I’m happy to bash the IRS, but I usually try to explain that our anger should be focused on the politicians who created the corrupt, 74,000-page tax code. But sometimes the IRS deserves some negative attention.
As you can see, 24 IRS employees were just arrested for stealing. But what about the other 105,976 bureaucrats at the Internal Revenue Service who seize our money under the implied threat of violence? Shouldn’t they be arrested for stealing from us as well?
I’m very leery of corporate tax reform, largely because I don’t think there are enough genuine loopholes on the business side of the tax code to finance a meaningful reduction in the corporate tax rate. That leads me to worry that politicians might try to “pay for” lower rates by forcing companies to overstate their income.
Documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request revealed that agents for the Internal Revenue Service are bypassing warrants and sifting through the email and other electronic communications of American citizens.
