    This is actually over a different IRS scandal that's being investigated, but apparently refusing to testify is becoming standard procedure for IRS officials when questioned.

    Any comments from our friends on the Left?

    Love to see them squirm, as they have made so many taxpayers do, for so long. I hope there is some meaningful reform of that agency, if not altogether abolishment. It won't happen I'm sure, but we can hope.

    Paiging Sir Chompalot and Gator Avatar to the floor...front and center, sirs...

    Gentlemen, you've been summoned to answer for your alleged digressions--or to attempt to explicate these [apparently] glaringly contradictory positions...

    Do man up sirs, and either eat your humble pie, or attempt to reconcile these apparently mutually exclusive positions...

    A jury of your peers awaits patiently, to render your verdicts.


    NOTE: I'd like to supplement the above, with this little nugget:


    What's good for the goose...

    I see chompalot has been active on the forum today but somehow he missed this thread. BTTT for his convenience, and Avatar's too. :happy:

    IRS agents and employees are simply the New Gestapo.

    You could probably get chompster and Ava to throw this guy under the bus, since it is an isolated incident that does not involve crimes possibly committed by their president, like the other IRS scandal does. This was just a rogue IRS manager performing a little non-political robbery. It does not threaten socialism in any way. Barry will find out about it by reading the newspaper, like everyone else. The media will give a second review to the stitching on Michelle's dress, to be thorough.

    Remember during the Plame affair when Bush ordered everyone to fully cooperate with the investigation? One wonders why Obama is not ordering the same thing here?

    Oh. I think we know why. He is ordering them to shut the hell up.....not to cooperate. But our local dems will spin and excuse it. Well maybe not chomp and avatar...they seem to be avoiding this thread like their reputations depend on it....

    I guess is tough to type with a mouth full of crow.

    Actually a blessing though.

    Let's put the brakes on calling other posters out or starting threads with intent to call posters out.
