I’ve been audited five times in three years, and I just received notice that I that I am now being audited a SIXTH time.

I've never been audited by the IRS (Thank God) but my business and I have been subject to investigations by Customs regarding possible evasion of duties. Never once was anything found to be wrong, and yet having been on their radar once, seems we are under constant scrutiny.

My only explanation is that a typical Fed Gov't bureaucracy has the mentality of a primitive, multi-celled organism. Its sensory stimuli somehow become activated, and through simple habituation, it continues on a certain path. As a collective organization, it does not think or reason, it simply reacts to stimuli.

We had an interesting encounter with the local customs office. After getting a months-long runaround about what was usually a routine matter, I was contacted by a customs official who slyly told me, “We can make this hard, or we can make this easy.”

That corrupt b-——d. We didn't pay. Eventually we got what we wanted, but very much later. I guess he's wallowing around in the Caribbean on one of those generous government pensions by now.
