Obama Comments On IRS Witch-Hunt Scandal - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture




 

The irony that the 'no taxation without representation' nation's Prime Minister David Cameron is on stage with President Obama amid the IRS-Gate scandal is not lost on us... We are sure the President will distance himself at pace from the witch-hunt - though it could get awkward on stage with the British PM looking on.

Quick send David Cameron a bust of Winston Churchill to present to the president. That would be awkward.

I never understood why being late made such an impact on my working career. I used to show up late for work in my younger years by 15 min on occasion 30 min and it always angered my employers and on a few occasion resulted in my dismissal. I always made the time up at the end of the day and pointed this out to my employers that no time or productivity was missed but it never helped my position. As my career progressed I found myself in management roles with people under me who showed that same trait.

I suddenly then realized what it was about being late that has such a huge impact on the perception or impression that others precieve of you:

IF I CAN'T TRUST YOU TO BE ON TIME THEN HOW IN THE F*CK CAN I TRUST YOU WITH ANYTHING ELSE!

Interesting observation.  As a manager, I do care more about what time people come in in the morning than when they leave.

Regardless, it's more about productivity than the number of hours for me but there is somewhat of a negative perception of those who are chronically late to work.

Ummmmm.....there is always an IRS witch hunt going on. It is called an audit and with the IRS you are legally considered guilty until you prove yourself innocent. That is the law.

This usually means that you "settle" with the IRS regardless of your innocence. It would cost more to fight them than just to settle and pay them off to go away. Remember that each IRS auditing agent must justify his or her existence with "found" money. Their superiors monitor the amount of additional tax money they "collect".

<This is called highway robbery where I come from.>

CD:

And the Tax department operates in the same way all other Government Departments operate; cost is no object. They will spend millions chasing a few hundred thousand, regardless of whether they are right or not. Once some auditor writes a number on a piece of paper, it is as if God, herself, wrote it. They just don't fucking care about other people's lives.

I am enjoying doing less and less, though. Fuck all the parasites.

COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.

ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible times. It's 9%.

 

COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?

ABBOTT: No, that's 16%.

 

COSTELLO: You just said 9%.

ABBOTT: 9% Unemployed.

 

COSTELLO: Right 9% out of work.

ABBOTT: No, that's 16%.

 

COSTELLO: Okay, so it's 16% unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, that's 9%...

 

COSTELLO: Wait a minute. Is it 9% or 16%?

ABBOTT: 9% are unemployed. 16% are out of work.

 

COSTELLO: IF you are out of work you are unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, you can't count the "Out of Work" as the unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed.

 

COSTELLO: BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!

 ABBOTT: No, you miss my point.

 

COSTELLO: What point?

ABBOTT: Someone who doesn't look for work, can't be counted with those who look for work. It wouldn't be fair.

 

COSTELLO: To whom?

ABBOTT: The unemployed.

 

COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work.

ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work stopped looking. They gave up. And, if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.

 

COSTELLO: So if you're off the unemployment roles, that would count as less unemployment?

ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!

 

COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don't look for work?

ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That's how you get to 9%. Otherwise it would be 16%. You don't want to read about 16% unemployment do ya?

 

COSTELLO: That would be frightening.

ABBOTT: Absolutely.

 

COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means they're two ways to bring down the unemployment number?ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.

 

COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?

ABBOTT: Correct.

 

COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?

ABBOTT: Bingo.

 

COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to just stop looking for work.

ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like an economist.

 

COSTELLO: I don't even know what the hell I just said!!

You had better learn to let this all go.  Nothing, and I mean NOTHING will come of this.  If anything it will end up being the republicans' fault (and probably is to an extent).   

You knew this was going to be a non-story when it's reported as a 'republican led house panel'...and even fox news is reporting it this way. 

DOA, Obama walks as does Hillary, and contrary to what the leftists talking heads tell you, it's not because of their mastery of politics but rather the failure of the media to pursue it...or ore likely to assist in providing obfuscation and cover.

It's over...

Nothing ever good comes of rotten cabbages ricocheting off the king's  coach, I agree.

But what else is a vegetable to hope for?

Tip of the iceberg.

They are trying very hard to keep a lid on it, but the term "2nd amendment" was used by the IRS TRAITORS "search engine".

Watch the fun when they are forced to disclose that one.

As if admitting targeting Jewish organizations is gonna obscure that.

 

It is called "admit to something bad and hope they don't find the other disgusting stuff".

The tax code is the state. He was not going to say anything to justify criticism of the state. He would potentially appologize for Benhagzi, HE can attack the bankers. In his youth he demoinized the wars (hah hah) He could threaten to stack the supreme court and any other array of anti-constitutional things. But you will never, ever hear a politician even give the slightest mention of the tax code. 

The tax code is a set of "laws" by which everyone is guilt in one way or another, and can be selectively prosecuted, as in this case. It destroys free will on may levels including life itself. It is the character in many religious text and childrens story books. The one  wearing the three peice suit, jackboots, big horns and fangs ... is mearly the messenger.

The hedge funders called it a "witch hunt" when they were being pursued for insider trading, with SAC a major cause of the "witch hunt".

There are witches among the tax protestors, and I like what the Puritans did when they proved they had a witch; the death penalty.  For me the tea party witch is one who is hiding from accountability, ripping off a bunch of people, using their wives and kids as human shields so law enforcement does not go after them.

The ass licking and **** sucking witches should be held accountable, but as usual the really bad sorcerers and witches usually get away.

The Don't Tax Me Bro pin is fantastic.  But there is one way that image would be even better.  Instead of the Uncle Sam with his finger pointing at you, his hand should actually be holding a Taser.  That would connect it better with the statement from which the image is derived (dude saying "Don't Tase Me Bro...") and also it would be much more evocative of the overbearing mean spirited tyranny we call our government.  Taxes are after all taken with the implied threat of force.

We have seen a continuous growth of power in our government that is unaccountable to anyone, and the IRS is one of the oldest. When we see outright abuse of IRS authority to effectively silence people we know we are fucked. It is the intimidation of free speech that we are experiencing and it is everywhere. Even the illusion of our freedoms being protected by the internet are fading as we see new "controls" being enforced here on ZH. Money is the vocal cords of free speech and threats of lawsuits or "investigations" are everywhere. Divisive government actions are fertilizing this growth, where we see so many willing to surrender their opposition's rights, deeming them either ignorant and unworthy of discourse or down right dangerous. Many here have decried the courts allowing corporations to have the rights of individuals, but these corporations are taxed by laws that everyone who wants someone else to pick up the tab supports. Taxation without representation. That is the core concept that hatched our country. Taxation and tax policies are of ultimate concern to corporations and have been used much as the the IRS's selective use of tax code has been used against political speech. America is composed of it's citizens, NOT the government. All punitive and manipulative tax policies must end. Taxation should be absolutely blind and never used to promote social agendas. For all of its well meaning it is the ultimate breeding ground for corruption.

Let's get back to how Hillary and/or Obama got Ambassador Stevens killed and just what he was up to. 

The political mis-use of the IRS is juicy and somewhere near Watergate magnitude on the abuse scale but Benghazi is much, much darker and could take down both Hillary and Obama.

The head officials at the IRS should all lose their jobs!

And the IRS should be moved under the control of the LEGISLATIVE branch so that it cannot be abused by the Executive branch ever again.

This President should face an impeachment proceedings for Benghazi (4 deaths of brave US men and cover-up lies), and IRS audit abuse!

(American people STILL have NO answer for where this President was during the night of the Benghazi attacks, or what orders or actions this President took that very evening!)
