The spectacle of top IRS official Lois Lerner---who oversaw the IRS division carrying out the targeting of conservative groups---pleading the Fifth today in front of Congress was brimming with irony. Suddenly, she digs the Constitution.
Yes, the woman who oversaw the harassment of groups trying to protect and defend the Constitution HID behind that same Constitution. That's the nice thing about the Constitution: it's always there for you. Except when it isn't, because Leftists like Lerner are trying to destroy it.
Further irony: Lerner refused to answer ANY questions from the Congressional panel. But she and her IRS fellow travelers were demanding answers from conservatives to all kinds of intrusive, overzealous, and inappropriate questions. Tough questions for thee, but not for me!
So: over at the IRS (and throughout this massive, corrupt labyrinth known as the federal government) we've got lying liars and pompous asses running the show who are hip-deep in abuses of power. So psyched to have them run our health care!
Remember when one of these lying liars--the outgoing IRS Commissioner Steven Miller---blamed "mismanagement" at the IRS? He bemoaned "poor customer service." Really? I didn't know that we were "customers" when it came to paying taxes. I thought being a customer was voluntary. Nobody holds a gun to your head and makes you purchase a good or service. But paying taxes is most definitely NOT voluntary. Try not paying your taxes, citing your right as a "customer," and I'll come visit you in prison.
Remember that these folks are supposed to be WORKING FOR US! We pay their salaries....through the taxes they collect! But Lerner takes the Fifth and bolts and the other IRS chiefs drip with contempt and sarcasm as they refuse to answer any questions at all.
I'd say we're getting "poor customer service," wouldn't you? In addition to having our Constitution ravaged, whatever's left of our trust in government demolished, and our liberty stripped away, of course.
