I remember once as a little wolf cub seeing my parents being audited. My mom had her taxes done by an ‘expert’ at H&R Block who claimed some exemptions the IRS didn’t like. My mom took me along to see the IRS Agent who was one of the most vile creatures I’ve ever met. He told my Mom he could take everything from her at any time, on a whim, at will. It certainly left an impression. One of the first of many hints that I didn’t truly live in a ‘free’ country.
Here's my take. I want to ELIMINATE the IRS. There is no one in the IRS that I would trust when my efforts are to eliminate their job.
I am an engineer....if you try to eliminate the job of engineers, I will give you millions of reasons why you are wrong. The only difference is that the taxpayer does not pay my salary and in-efficiency is not rewared by my employer. Come to think of it....this may be a bad analogy. LOL
He's nothing but a plant sent out by the administration..
This was nothing more than a new version of "The Life of Julia".
Notice they didn't ask him about the fact that the vast majority of IRS employees are Dimocrats and public-employee-union members. OF COURSE they need more money, so they can pay their people more and afford the CUSH PENSIONS these people get after 20 years on the job, while they go DOUBLE-DIP on the next government teat down the row.
They also didn't ask about the targeting of conservatives and the WEAPONIZATION OF THE IRS for the Dimocrat scum, did they?
This is absurd. The main reason why there aren't any charges brought yet is because of the massive destruction of evidence, of the type the IRS regularly send other people to prison for.
And the reason why Congress opposes a flat tax is because it would drastically lessen their power to conduct social experiments, and lessen their wealth by preventing them from accepting gifts by picking winners and losers.
Set a flat tax and abolish the IRS, and the economy would explode with productivity (and congressmen who had been in office for more than a couple of decades would suddenly resign).
Here is an interesting article about how the socialist French tax codes that are meant to soak the wealthy have actually destroyed many elderly and poor, and have in fact eaten up most potential economic growth by forcing investments out of the country.
Also, the man who ran the French IRS office responsible for punishing tax cheats was found to have had a secret Swiss bank account, where he illegally hid most of his wealth from taxes.
France is a gleaming example of how socialism doesn't work.
Sooooo...what is not mentioned when he speaks about a flat tax raising taxes for 80% of the population is that those people (either through deductions or receiving entitlements or subsidies) are not paying ANY taxes. So...yeah...it would actually force them to contribute rather than suck the system. Not a bad thing in my book!!!
Ever since Bill Clinton we have been throwing money at "The War On Education." Ever since Jimmy Carter we have been throwing money at "The War On Drugs." We should not start "The War On the IRS." It will be another war with no end in sight. A Flat Tax is the only fair tax. Some people say it will hurt the poor. Phooy - if the poor are really poor they won't have any money to spend and there fore won't be paying a tax.
I became a little suspicious when I saw him proudly displaying his awards!
this guy must be on Lerner's payroll. The Idea that a vat tax or sales tax would be cheated on is no different from the present wage tax system. Everyone should pay something to have skin in the game. otherwise you have the givers and the takes like we have now. Earned income credit for example. better described as welfare cash back tax. This guy is a dem for sure. Maybe event told to write what he did. More skeptical every day am I. This obama administration is causing a tremendous distrust of the government. All part of the chaos plan must, make the average man hate his government.
Doesn’t any of my fellow blaze readers get it?
This is part of the social media outreach that the IRS was supposed to start nearly two years ago.
This BS, this guy is an administration political plant.
It’s all about deception. Read what he wrote. He is getting paid to do this.
My gosh, republican leaders really are simpletons
He is nothing but a political HACK!!! PERIOD!!!
Is anyone else having EXTREME problems lately navigating The Blaze or typing their responses or being constantly interrupted by the "Nissan" ads? I rarely even read the articles any more, much less comment because it is impossible because of all the pop-up ads. I am having a most difficult time just typing THIS!!
I don't see any problem here?
After all, most of you believe the "Bible", so cough it up!
What did Matthew stated about paying your taxes, even-though, he never mention his last name????
To bad, don't you just love "Faith and Force"...April 15th? ;)
AM RETIRED FROM THE IRS. VANDY55, THIS GUY IS NUTS!

Seems to me if they have a robot that can disinfect any virus from a hospital room then why can’t they disinfect humans with it that have it??

This was never taught in in our history classes in public school, hmmm reminds me of the modern caliphate, and will history repeat itself?
Unless the Caliphate dies before it is fully birthed: yes.
The Battle of Lepanto was the climatic battle, but there were other that were important battles in repelling the onslaught of those who wished to engulf Europe into their caliphate. The Battle of Vienna in 1683 and the Siege of Vienna in 1529 were two such important battles. Also, the Battle of Tours in 732 and Ferdinand's conquest of Granada in 1492 were other major events in stemming the growth of the Muslim caliphate.
One thing we need to consider: Iran and the current situation with ISIS are two separate problems. If one of these problems is addressed, the other will surely take advantage of it. In either case, neither problem is in our best interest. And Russia will become a large part of the problem should Iran emerge with the upper hand.
Hmmm...seems I mentioned the Battle of Lepanto a couple of weeks back in one of my posts. Wonder if Buck reads what's in these comments and saw my post and decided to study it and comment on it? Well....maybe that's wishful thinking. We all want to feel relevant now, don't we? Why else would we all be commenting here?
Not many people really know about that engagement, unless you're a very engaged and curious, seeking for truth, Catholic. It has a very Catholic backstory associated with it.
No, they don't have a navy!
This day is celebrated in the Catholic Liturgy as the feast of the Holy Rosary because the Pope called on all Catholics to pray the rosary for the Christian victory. Of course , the part the Catholic Church played in this pivotal battle has been ignored in the American and British Protestant empires for five hundred years.
