Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension for blasting Republicans in a conversation with a taxpayer.

Wow, with harsh punishments like this, they will surely think twice before they try anything again.

if you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and “the poor are going to get poorer.” ......................... or even worse they may have to work for a living because of job creation. Dumb ass, stupid, imbecilic thinking, and they vote!

And just think: They are in charge of collecting the ObamaCommieCare “fines”. Yes, no potential for abuse there. “Oh look, the conservative did not purchase ObamaCommieCare. Well about we raise that fine of his from $40 to $400,000 and the seize his assets.”

The demonRATs had control of Congress for over 40 years, and that’s exactly what happened.

It continues to happen under the 0bummer’s reign.

0bamaphones, EBT cards, section-8 housing, and crappy government “health care” are NOT wealth! They are the PRIME indicators of either poverty or FRAUD.

Least of all the people who actively seek government employment for its low threshold of required effort, arbitrary, intimidating, due-process-mocking power even for the lowliest bureaucrat and the individual and collective pathology that convinces them they are ‘making a difference.’

Combine these with a woefully poor standard of education that has also been tilted sharply left from kindergarten and you have a recipe for disaster.

Disciplinary action for pimping Obama?
Mmmmm....that's gonna put a crimp in the IRS's daily routine.

Looks like they'll have to do a "Peter Sellers" and
subdue their natural instincts to smartly salute der leader.

And forced to take off those yummy brown shirts, too.

"In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s customer help line urged taxpayers “to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,”

mmm...mmm...mmm...Barack Hussein Obama.

On a side note, I distinctly remember seeing hordes of USPS workers in their uniforms tramping through airports covered with Obama regalia during the 2008 election cycle.

The IRS thinks it manufactures money like a hydroponic pot farm.

These people are gangsters who are going to one day lose their privileges and be left with no friends nor any rights.

it was “commonplace” in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office.

This is like chewing gum in school compared to what Lerner and her minions did.

In 1974, one of the most significant Articles of Impeachment against President Nixon was the threat to use the powers of the Internal Revenue Service against Nixon's political enemies.

There is now a huge black cloud of smoke (and possibly a roaring fire!) of information that may confirm President Obama may have authorized the use of the IRS to go after political enemies--and may have used the NSA's comprehensive snooping program as part of that process.

This IRS stuff is what happens when you don’t have an engaged opposition party to rampaging marxists. There have been public reports of IRS misconduct for at least 3 years. And almost a year since the issue went nuclear. Yet the GOP has done NOTHING about it. They have tools available to combat this and they have chosen to do NOTHING. So naturally the Dems continue the assaults.

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee went into executive session to discuss passing a resolution officially referring Ms. Lerner, who headed the tax-exempt division of the IRS during the targeting, to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution.

Surely Holder will instruct his staff to fast-track the investigation.

I'm noted for the variety of Atlas Shrugged themed polo shirts I wear at work. For example, one has the logo of Danneskjold Repossessions on the left side of the shirt.

95% of the people I work with have never heard of Ayn Rand, the other 5% have read AS. Most of the time, I get quizzical looks.

No surprise. The irs is a great big welfare organization, where people pretend to work and get a paycheck in lieu of welfare.
Plus affirmative action in the extreme.

All dedicated to taking money from hard-working Republicans and giving it to lazy slobs who vote democrat.

Yes, it is definitely a problem.

Notice that when Nixon did it, everyone agreed it was wrong.

But today, all of Obamas supporters believe this behavior is acceptable for them to achieve their ends.

Yep, and with 90 days worth of accumulated vacation time and 120 of sick leave I’m sure they will take a big loss on their 15 days.

You want wealth redistribution?

Are the Poor Getting Poorer?
http://www.creators.com/opinion/walter-williams/are-the-poor-getting-poorer.html

People who want more government income redistribution programs often sell their agenda with the lament, "The poor are getting poorer and the rich are getting richer," but how about some evidence and you decide? I think the rich are getting richer, and so are the poor.
