  •  IRS is the middle class terrorists (2+ / 0-)

    Do you think when they are pressured to raise revenue
    because the congressional terrorists persistently destroy the economy and middle class , that
    they are going after tax criminals or after the bankrupt, medically dissabled, unemployed hardship cases. These I mentioned are the easy targets. The tax evader criminals have lawyers and money, the lowest level pond scum irs entry level minions only know how to terrorize the already weak americans.

    Remember the IRS is the strong man, the yard ape, for the Treasury/IRS/Bankster mafia.

    •  Taxation is not "terrorism". (3+ / 0-)

      It's the price you pay for living in a civilized country. It's one thing to disagree with the level of taxation, but it's another thing entirely to oppose the entire concept of tax collection. If you'd rather not deal with the IRS, there are plenty of places you're free to move in the world...but you might like the techniques they use to "collect" in the absence of an IRS.

      (Also, since you appear to be a Ron Paul supporter, why am I not surprised at your use of the term "yard ape", which sometimes has racist connotations? I hope that's not how you meant it...)

    •  "terrorist" (0+ / 0-)

      I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    •  That is totally stupid bullshit "wageslave" (0+ / 0-)

      Stupid because the "the bankrupt, medically dissabled, unemployed hardship cases." wouldn't be owing any taxes to speak of. If your income is low there are no or almost no taxes due. And if you get a taxes due letter it would always say that you can call to arrange a payment plan. And it can be very low.

      Unless of course they have been cheating big time for years before. In that case... ...

      Taxes are what we pay for civilization.

      You seem to be defending cheating. That's almost always done by those that cheat.
