Here’s how I have learned to think with my legal training. The presumption is that the g’mint is neutral and doing it’s job without bias towards any group. The burden is then on the citizen to show how he/she has been discriminated against. Once that showing has been made, the burden shifts to the g’mint to prove that no discrimination took place. In this case, the burden is on the IRS to show that it treated the applicants in a balanced way. Of course they say that they were just swamped and it was low level bureaucrats who blinked on Friday afternoon after a long hard week but they, who are masters of statistics, have to do better than that. Hopefully Lois is socking away that money. I hope she loses it all to the victims. Anyone know whether she has immunity? Anyone know if it is even possible to fire a civil servant anymore? At least she isn’t black so they can’t play the race card but I about exploded when she got weepy. Shame on her for playing the girl card.
It is laos amusing how the people being grilled are some of the most arrogant, disgusting, obnoxious, out of touch non sympathy inducing ex - high school hall monitors one could imagine.
These people truly are the face of the Democrat Bureaucrat. Nasty, ruthless, uncaring, self righteous, and cold blood enforcer of the modern PC Progressive movement.
They would fit in perfectly in the bureaucracy Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Communist Cuba and Venezuela, administering and rubber stamping executions, transferees to Camps or Gulags, scheduling of firing squads, seizing of assets and all the other functions need to keep an oppressive tyranny humming along.
To even be superficially exposed to them is to hate them.
The best thing about these scandals is letting these people come out to show America just what kind of people are running the show.
