The IRS, the enforcement arm of the bloated obscenity that has become the United States Government, is getting ready for the massive tax increases which will soon be upon us.
The folks at the IRS are putting out bids: (this from the bid request by the government)
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to purchase sixty Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Division. The Remington parkerized shotguns, with fourteen inch barrel, modified choke, Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight and XS$ Contour Bead front sight, Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock, and Speedfeed ribbed black forend."
You and I would be arrested for having a shotgun with only a fourteen inch barrel, but for the tax collector, nothing but the very best in assault weaponry.
We need to wake up folks. Did we not learn anything from watching Stalin or Hitler? Since many history classes in state schools and colleges have become victims to progressive revisionists, you may not fully have understood what happened as Hitler took over Germany.
Hitler needed money for his welfare promises and massive government growth. So, they do what all good young dictators, (and dictators in waiting) do, they demonized the rich, and in Germany, the rich were mostly Jewish.
Class envy has always been the preferred weapon of the leftists. The Jews were targeted for cash, and robbed and eventually killed off. It was a money grab to fund a huge government. Stalin robbed the people of the Ukraine, causing twenty million to starve to death. The folks in the Ukraine were producing more than enough to feed themselves, but Stalin robbed them of their efforts, and the people could just damn well starve.
Why do you think the IRS and the Tax Code are basically "hands off" to any elected politicians?
If you are a Congressman or Senator, and you want to investigate the IRS, or our horrid Tax Code, you might just get a phone call. "Congressman, do you mind coming in to talk, and oh yeah, bring your complete financial records for the past ten years, will ya?"
Our current elected officials are afraid of the IRS, because the addiction of government power and government greed have rendered them impotent.
The Tax Code is purposely difficult and convoluted. That way, almost every one of us, could be at any given time, in some technical violation of the tax law. I don't care how carefully you prepare your return to the feds, are you ready for a full IRS anal exam?
Progressives have managed to allow the murder of millions of unborn by claiming a right to privacy.
Is there any right to privacy with the IRS? They know everything about you, where you work, how much you make, where you live, your banking information, information on family members, and they can access it any time they want to make your life difficult.
The IRS attacks small businesses, in almost a punishing way, as if to penalize the self employed for having the audacity to take a risk. All we hear from progressives is how business is greedy.
Baloney! Our government has taken greed to a whole new level. They not only are robbing you and I, for a bloated, wasteful inefficient government, increasing all the time, on all levels, they are systematically robbing our children and grandkids.
George Clooney, a noted progressive, had a telethon to raise money for Haiti. Great job! He raised $66 million in one day for Haiti.
Just to compare, you know, keepin' it real, if George were to have a telethon to help repay the money Obama and company blew through in ONE year, Clooney would need to raise $66 million every single day for the next 158 years.
You know the government is going to need money, and more money, and after robbing the rich, and destroying the economy, where is this cash going to come from?
I guess I can see why the IRS needs more assault weapons.
