Anyone who thought that the public disclosures of IRS crimes against critics of the BHO regime would result in fewer such attacks doesn’t understand their utter contempt for the law and their feelings of omnipotence with the aid of their media buddies. Even with Lois Lerner on the sidelines, the attacks and harassment continue.
I always enjoy Mark Steyn’s observations about life in the USA when he subs for Rush Limbaugh on his radio show. Maybe it’s the irony of hearing someone with a posh British accent comment on American issues that makes it so humorous, but Mark’s rants about the insanity of our income tax system really do crack me up.
From this past Thursday, here are some of his rants on the frustrations of trying to get a 1099-R form for his personal tax return, as well as how the USA is the only country where everyone knows the numbers of the main tax forms as a matter of normal life.
I have to admit I wasn’t familiar with the original song by Pharrell Williams that this video is based on, but this new version is funny and well made enough to stand on its own as an effective rebuttal to those who say it’s patriotic to give the IRS most of our money and allow our Rulers in DC to spend it more wisely than we mere mortals ever could.
Chances of getting audited by IRS lowest in years – The overall percentage of audits was dropped quite easily by only targeting the vocal critics of the DemonRats. Publicizing this fact helps silence others who may dare refuse to drink the Left’s Kool-Aid.
I took a quick glance through the returns. Obama had to pay $1,753 for the new ObamaCare tax on investments (Form 8959). Biden only had to pay $230 for this new tax. Biden received $30,552 of Social Security benefits last year, as he entertained the country with his crazy antics.
It used to be official IRS policy to ignore people who made ridiculous claims about taxes being voluntary. However, they finally realized that their silence on the subject just fed into the hands of the promoters of such tax scams who used that as a sign that what they were saying must have been true.
I had an interesting email conversation with a tax protestor a few months who was spouting some of these idiotic reasons why nobody has to file a tax return. After I finish the rest of our April 15 extensions, I will post it here on my blog.
