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:

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.

Biden got demoted.  Cameron took over the job of looking attentively stupid for Obama.

Listen to this Excuser-in-Chief.  What a fucking worm.

It looks like a love fest with David "Yes I'm Gay" Cameron looking all bugged eyed in love with The Commander In Chief of what was formerly known as the American Empire.

Obama and Cameron are having discussions about the USA joining the EU.  

Goal is the EUSA by 2016, aka, The Atlantic Rimjob.

+1 for humor and effective snark.  ^^ Awesome.  Nice to know someone else noticed that the Admin. gave back an incredibly important historical artifact that represented the gratitude and understanding of the sacrifice of over 100,000 American lives -- because of unsubstantiated rumors that someone in the Obama lineage was a slave at some time to one of the imperialists.


  Now watch this joker talk about unity and espouse logorrhea composed by some evil postmodern brilliant gen Y'er speach write.

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.>

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.

As a card carrying member of the Organization of Dorks, Oddballs and Rubes (ODOR), I find the aforementioned epithet offensive and hereby request all reference to said term be stricken from the record. In addition all members of this community who have used such demeaning terms should be subject to enrollment in a sensitivity training course at the earliest date possible. Thank you!

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.



 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!!
