In more rusty irony many of my progressive friends are rightly outraged by the power given to the government by the Patriot Act, yet the IRS has had the same (or more) power for decades. I call it guilty till they pronounce you guilty!
And this is different from Fascism how?
It would be nice to know the outcome of this as to what the IRS’s reasons were.
There always is.
If there’s anybody alive in the USA who still thinks that we live in a constitutional republic with representative democracy, I have a bridge for you in NY.
The current administration is marxist. In their world view, all the means of production should be in the hands of the government. They bitterly resent that anyone can own a business and actually make a profit. They want the money.
When all the means of production are in the hands of the government, then we’re Cuba, Venezuela, the Soviet Union, and poor.
If the facts are as he has presented them, this is an outrage. These IRS criminals must be arrested and punished. If I said what I REALLY think should be done to them, I’d probably have the FBI at my door.

I am very surprised to see this in the Washington Times.
Did it say the business owner was in Michigan?
Neither do I. Bang!
Who regulates the regulators?
I don't know exactly what is coming down the pike, but I do know that it's going to require physical, mental and spiritual toughness.
Personally I've worked my way down to about 900 calories of food intake a day now, and gotten rid of all diet sodas and other garbage out of my diet. I'm either going to get tough of die trying. (And, yes, I know that I'll have to increase the calories one of these days .. but today is not that day).
Reading the article the IRS could seize pretty much ANY retail small business’s accounts under suspicion of avoiding reporting. ALL of them I know make small, less than $10,000 deposits daily, some multiple times a day. Heck doesn’t even have to be small business.
I guarantee McDonald’s and pretty much all other corporate chain fast food makes multiple small cash deposits daily. IRS could seize McDonald’s using this tactic.
Absolute rogue agency
Time to start going “Cash Only” wait businesses cannot do that as having “too much cash” can be seen as a FEDERAL violation of DRUG LAWS....
They have really got the law abiding OVER A BARREL don’t they?
Meanwhile criminals in DC and outside of DC are getting sweetheart deals and amnesty....
1) The IRS is first and foremost a collection agency.
2) The is a collar around the IRS and there is a chain fixed to that collar. The other end of that chain is at the feet of the US Congress.
You can thank congress. In 1913 they sold out your a&& and everyone else’s a&& to a foreign banking cartel called the federal reserve. They’ve owned you, me, and the government ever sinse.
Welcome to the Soviet States of Amerika. Our communist/terrorist loving muzzie Commissar leads. This is what the Republic has become. Good luck folks. If you do not know the only way out of this mess, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, I would sincerely suggest you pick up a copy of the Holy Bible, or you may actually have one in a drawer or collecting dust on a shelf some where, and get into it. Start in the Book of John. Read Romans and The Acts, the move on into the Corinthians, Timothy, etc. Do not fail to read Ezekiel, Daniel, and Revelation. Folks, time draws short. VERY short before the return of our Lord. Don’t be left behind. You don’t want to be under Antichrist. He’ll make Obama, Hitler, Stalin, Pal Pot, etc. look like school boys.
So let me get this straight. If you deposit 10,000, that is reported to the gov. If you deposit less than 10,000, they assume that you are trying to avoid the reporting. But the small deposits are reported to the gov, but we’re not supposed to know that, and so they assume we are trying to avoid the reporting. Also we’re not supposed to know that the 10,000 is now 5,000.
So when we deposit the day’s receipts to avoid theft from criminals that the government encourages by keeping us from having a firearm to defend ourselves from the theft we are accused of trying to hide money.
We deposit the money as it comes in and the government just waltzes in and takes it.
The USA is Venezuela. Only our president has a lower IQ.
Question for IRS (NSA, please forward)
What do you do about the criminals who don’t deposit the money they get illegally?
Well I wonder how many Dims this guy voted for over the years? If you want to stop this kind of thing you need to:
1. not vote for Dims.
2. not vote for GOP types who are big on the war on drugs.
