I’ve warned that it’s never a good idea to assume top-down conspiracies when corruption, incompetence, politics, ideology, greed, and self-interest are better explanations for what happens in Washington.
The Senate Mensheviks have raked Apple Computer over the coals on its practice of keeping tons and tons of money offshore. This is money that the Mensheviks sorely need, so they can squander it on things that won’t make life better for anyone outside of K Street.
Political affiliations aside, everyone should be worried about the IRS scandal. John touched base with a tea-party activist, and talked about the impropriety on display at the IRS. Also: John McCain grilled the CEO of Apple over their tax “avoidance” practices. (Because the problem couldn’t possibly be the tax code, it is obviously Apple’s adherence to the law.)
Believe it or not, there are some people in Congress that can’t even wrap their mind around the power of the IRS. (And we wonder why there might be some abuse of power?) John Ransom talked with Bill Tatro about the recent White House scandals, and the coercive power of tax policy.
Imagine that: A government tax collection agency asked a bunch of citizens about their conversations with God. I guess we can chalk this up to the IRS’s complete disregard for Constitutional limitations, but does it strike anyone else as mildly anti-American?
The Democratic Party, and especially the outgoing Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, must be wondering if their confident stride over the past four years didn’t just gallop them right past a forbidden threshold.
