Revolutions, because throughout history, dumbasses insist on bossing others around


The initial firestorm surrounding the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups may have subsided, but tea party leaders say the situation has only become worse and may lead to more lawsuits against the embattled agency.

Huh?  You mean the tyrants refuse to stop with the tyranning?  Well now, this must be the first time it's ever happened.  

That's weird because history teaches us that usually tyrants come to realize they are stealing the freedom of others and so they curtail their freedom-stealing activity, thereby saving lots of blood and treasure.

The IRS also is asking for detailed financial records, including “the amounts and percentages of your total expenses that were for fundraising activities in the tax year 2011, 2012 and 2013.”

The Aug. 20 request came as a shock to Tea Party Patriots, which said it already has provided to the IRS extensive information on all of its activities and thinks it is long past time to receive a “yes” or “no” answer

“This is tantamount to an audit. This is the continuation of the same thing they’ve been doing for four years. They have not stopped,” she said Thursday. “

We are now looking at potential legal remedies, but that’s not easy. Congress has made it quite difficult to sue the IRS.” More here:

Wait, what's this? It's difficult to sue the federal government? Sure it is, unless it's a liberal group suing the government. Did you know that the "government" often WANTS to get sued so it can squander your money the way it wants to? That's right, often times the government will give all the necessary information to certain groups so they can easily sue and free up the government to do as it pleases. And then it pays the "opposing" attorneys handsomely.

But not in this case, my friends. Congress makes it very easy for lawyers to sue corporations, but then they exempt themselves and their agencies from the same laws. Isn't that interesting? 

Many years ago when I was in school, I was studying labor laws ... and I learned at that time that congress had exempted themselves from most of the labor laws. I was flabbergasted. "They can DO that?" Turns out, they can ... and do ... ALL the time. In fairness, I heard they no longer actually exempt themselves from that particular law but they get around it in some other way.

And while I'm on this, I accidentally caught a part of the Today Show the other day and they were talking about "interns." My perception was that interns (on the Today Show) did not get paid. And that applies to the White House as well. 

What do you think?  You think you can do that in your business?  What about McDonalds?  Or did the shitstains government "somehow" accidentally exempt themselves (and certain favorable businesses) from laws that apply to you?

And I might as well mention this: Do you think you or your child has an equal chance at putting one of these "internships" on a resume?  Or do you think the internships are handed out to their friends and donors?
