IRS – Why Am I Not Surprised?
Within the last few weeks accounts of IRS abuse and harassment has been prominent on television and on the Internet.
First, the story of non-profit status denials to Tea Party and other conservative groups angered conservatives nationwide. Next we heard that thousands of your hard earned dollars were spent by the IRS to purchase a movie studio and make silly movies (one of them actually maligning my all time favorite show – Star Trek).
Then we heard that they spent $50 million on employee conferences and retreats in just two years! Here are some of the stories if you missed them:

I heard one of the hearing panel members ask the question, “What was the IRS thinking?” I can easily answer that one. Being that I am a former IRS agent I know what they were thinking.
IRS employees are taught that they have the full backing of the United States Government and that whatever happens comes down from the director’s office (from on high) or is sanctioned by someone else or is okay just because they want to do it.
DON’T QUESTION ANYTHING JUST GO ALONG TO GET ALONG is a prominent motto in the IRS.
Many of them think they can do anything without negative consequence because it’s true. They have literally gotten away with murder (destroying homes and families).
Look at Ms. Lois Lerner still drawing a paycheck while she is suspended. Look at all of the prior abuse that has been proven and nobody got fired.
Look at Timothy Geithner, who was the top dog. He had not paid taxes and as opposed to being prosecuted got a slap on the hand and was allowed to pay the taxes and still become Treasury Secretary.
This man KNEW that he was supposed to pay those taxes and he was even given the funds to pay the taxes. However, his nonpayment was disclosed when he was being vetted by Obama. As “smart” as he is he got away with saying it was an “honest mistake”. For him, ignorance of the law WAS an excuse.

Now this is a blast – Congressman Charles Rangel, who was the head of the House Ways and Means Committee was also caught not paying taxes and was only stripped of his chairmanship of that committee. There was no prosecution for him either. He has the nerve to chime in on this current situation:
“We have found a cancer in the office of the IRS in Cincinnati,” admitted Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., noting the investigation could lead to a grand jury examining criminal charges.
How about the pot calling the kettle black!

By the way, now I will reveal to you that the IRS is attempting to extract $350,000 from me, the little lady from Georgia convicted of a misdemeanor, the one that has already served 3 full years in prison while these guys are out there still making millions and raping YOU!
Are you really surprised that IRS employees think they are above the law? Are you really surprised that IRS employees that are atheists are abusing their power by targeting pastors and other Christian organizations? Are you surprised that these employees regularly leak information to their friends about people and groups that they chose not to like? I’m not!
As long as they keep raping the American people via the income tax they will continue to have almost unlimited resources to stifle liberty, cause poverty and ruin lives and families while they enrich their handlers.
As long as congress lets the abuse go on people will suffer. As long as WE THE PEOPLE sit back and complain about what our slave handlers do without some definitive action it will continue to happen. Selah, pause and think about that!
