Well, every department of the Government has something to hide. And from time to time, they need scrutiny. But other times this intense investigation really becomes an obsession – a witch-hunt -- especially when barking up the wrong tree.
Like a mad dog howling at the moon, the misguided or simply self-important missionaries of justice take a step too far. They cross the line and begin to more than annoy. They start to waste our tax money.
Fortunately for us, the IRS, everyone’s favorite target, has decided to answer the many challenges (done at tax payer expense – just like the Congressional hearings). Actually, just like the actual hearings themselves, this is a parody of reality. Surely Issa and Paul are figments of Larry David's (Seinfeld) imagination which made an art form out of turning “nothing” hilariously into being “something.”
The IRS is taking to the airwaves to answer back to those who seek to go where no man has gone before – INSIDE the IRS – at a star-date in the future.
Without further fanfare, I proudly present to you, an IRS film (yes, they really did commission this with our tax money) to boldly go where no government employee has gone before – the journey to seek out new tax forms and restrictions on politically undesirable organizations and to deny them their Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code status.
Trayvon Martin’s father will speak at Wednesday’s inaugural hearing of the Congressional Caucus on Black Men and Boys.
Tracy Martin will give the opening remarks at a hearing called “The Status of Black Males: Ensuring Our Boys Mature into Strong Men.” The newly formed caucus is chaired by Reps. Danny Davis (D-Ill.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.). [...]
Member of the Congressional Black Caucus are also drafting a number of bills including anti-violence measures, efforts to scrap stand-your-ground laws and prohibitions on racial profiling.
Three others will also speak.
Of course, we all know this will get very little media attention as long as there is something like a royal door that the media can focus on:
