I will try to get the skinny on it. I have not been happy about it for a lot of reasons...but the biggest one is it seemed to start with the Patriot Act, which was was a Democratic response to 9-11. John Kerry worded most of the provisions in that bill.
I call it the Enemy Combatants Bill because I can't remember the official name for it.
Basically you can be taken any time, simply for disagreeing. Habaeous Corpus (the body of evidence) has been blown to smithereens. The government doesn't NEED evidence, only the accusation. Resistance is futile.
And the burden of proof should be on the accuser. That was one of the tenets in English common law. The IRS has twisted it in recent years to mean that if the government accuses you, you have to prove the government wrong. They don't need the evidence, since it supposedly exists. A side note on the IRS: They get their intel from people who submit W-2s.
They supposedly match the information they recieve from employers with your information and if you have overpaid, they won't tell you, but if you have not paid or underpaid, they will come knocking, based on a piece of paper.
And this is an agency that can't even balance it's own books.
So, going back to the latest outrage, it is now at the level of unrighteous dominion.
I don't think the Democrats will fare worse, but they have been champing at the bit now for some time (still screeching about election fraud in close races where there were no problems...gotta love George Soros and DU)to gain control and now they have a chance. Lessee what they make of it.
And if anyone is offended by what I have said, tough. I detest the Democrats as a matter of principle...especially when they turned on Joe Lieberman like that. We don't necessarily think John McCain is full of it, but even in disagreeing it has been civil.
But I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.
Jay, it didn't surprise me that an appeals officer (who is paid by the state) didn't want to hear it. His livelihood is threatened if people can't pay their taxes. Reasonable is one thing. Usurious is another, along with the nanny state.
But that is a whole other discussion...and I am outta here.
