Acting IRS Commissioner Mr. Stephen Miller (Could actually be Eugene Levy, Geoffrey Rush or their offspring, I’m awaiting verification on this.) , during this mornings hearing regarding the IRS targeting Conservative Groups stated unequivocally that he did not believe targeting was wrong.
Much is being made that this man was a Bush appointee.
Folks… this man is exhibiting the Cultural Mindset which resides within the Government as we know it. It doesn’t matter who appointed him. I don’t care if George Washington himself personally indorsed Mr. Miller. He is an example, just an example, of what is wrong with the IRS. I’ll leave alone the fact the George Bush, pick one, was not a rock ribbed Constitutional Conservative.
Bear in mind, Mr. Miller is just one of the players in this scandal and he wasn’t in charge during the peak of these targeted investigations of groups based on politics as determined by those in the IRS.
There are many more people involved here. Many, many more.
It is also amazing, and worth paying attention to, how much the IRS and apparently this White House depends on the news media for being alerted to issues which they are a part of. Frankly, it should cause every American to shake their head and wonder if anyone works in Washington D.C., and if so do any of them possess cell phones. The lack of communication and reliance on outside third parties to inform them what is happening within their own departments is astounding.
Please… please pay attention to this. This is Bloated, Over-reaching, Unaccountable and Oppressive Bureaucracy on display.
This attitude permeates all agencies within our Government.
This is not just about the IRS.

Is Barack Obama about to suffer the fate of Diomedes?
In the Greek Myth, Diomedes is fed to his Mares which he trained to dine on Human flesh.
The Greeks had a penchant for Irony and Unintended Consequences.
The metaphor seems apt in light of newly discovered actions by the IRS. It appears that Obama supporters employed by the agency decided to target Conservative groups… for years. They used the power of the agency in an attempt to intimidate and ultimately destroy their ideological opposition. (It’s worth noting that they considered their opposition to be those teaching the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights to the masses.)
While the IRS revelations are only one of several problems this current White House is experiencing, it is an important one as it lends credibility to those who have warned of an over-reaching and oppressive government. A concern which to date has been answered with the accusations of paranoia and hysteria from those in the Media and the White House.
For the record…
I will go as far a stating that I do not believe President Obama directly instructed those in the Internal Revenue Service to conduct themselves in such a manner. On the contrary, these people were predisposed to behave this way. These individuals have had a constant diet of “the ends justifies the means” in regard to promoting their Socialist Ideology because of the “fairness and equality” they believe it’s implementation will result in.
The President did not need to direct them… as he spent a better part of his life Teaching them how to behave this way. All that needed to happen was an overt message of complacency from the Attorney General’s office when it came to politically motivated crime. And, without fail, this was delivered to them by AG Holder when he intentionally did not prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation. It was a big, and well publicized, demonstration of the AG’s ability to apply discretion in regard to what laws would be enforced.
In the End, the “Constitutional Law Professor“, the Community Organizer, the Smartest Man to have ever occupied the White House could become the victim of his own design.
The Socialist “Low Level Workers” are motivated, and have believed themselves to have a pass to do as they wished. Considering the Progressive power struggle entering the 2016 Presidential race it would not surprise me if more skeletons are not thrown out for public consumption.
But validating the fears of all “The Crazies” out there cannot ultimately be good for Liberal politics… unless they are going to, once again, try to run as Fiscal Conservatives like they did in the 90’s.
Regardless… I say let the carnage begin!
Stin iyia mas!

The IRS has, for some yet unexplained reason, admitted to targeting Constitutional Conservative Groups.
Full AP Story Here.
The IRS has apologized for doing this.
Okay then. I accept the apology and will move on.
In other words… “that’s good enough for me”.
It would be hypocritical of me to attempt to politicize this story and suggest that the current Administration would use the IRS to intimidate and/or destroy those who stand opposed to their Socialist ideas. It would be unreasonable to offer up any explanation for such an action which could be interpreted as ideologically motivated.
Any Objective observer must immediately acknowledge that had such a mission been promoted under a Conservative White House, there would be no outcry from the Left.
In addition, had it been discovered the IRS specifically targeted Liberal groups in the early 2000’s, a simple apology from George Bush would be accepted without a moment’s hesitation.
It’s time we all grow up. “What does it really matter anyway!?”, as our former Secretary of State and Presidential Hopeful famously shouted.
Along the same lines, it’s time we all move on from:
Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Boston Terrorist Taxpayer Subsidies, Illegal Phone Taps, Illegal e-mail Access, Monetizing the Debt, Printing Money, Government Waste, Voter Fraud, Pigford…. a new “Housing Bubble“.
At least that’s what the Organizer, from Organizing for Action, told me to do when he called me on my free Government Phone.
I’m still waiting for Government Bourbon. Then… they might have me, accept it would most likely taste awful… and be non-alcoholic. The only upside is you would be buying it for me.
(PS. Do you think they would have fessed-up to this if they didn’t have to? Me neither. There is another shoe here… and someone is about to be beat to death with it.)
