I’m watching the IRS hearings and find the lack of any responsibility by the leadership astounding.  These people receive a huge salary from the people of the United States, have taken an Oath of Office, yet IRS Abusethey don’t have a clue what’s going on, who’s in charge, who created the “inappropriate” questionnaires and ultimately stood by while many people in Cincinnati proceeded to violate the Constitution and people’s Civil Rights.

How can I get a job where I get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars, essentially I would be responsible for nothing, can fail in my job, can blame that it’s others but can’t remember any names?  AND keep my job!

We want these people to expand the government and be responsible for oversight of the Affordable HealthCare Act “ObamaCare”?

WAKE UP AMERICA, Apathy and incompetence reigns in our government.

Be afraid, very very afraid.

We’ve been hearing rumors about the IRS possibly being aggressive to conservative groups for nearly a year.  Since we no longer have mainstream media Free Press, but instead party leaning infomercial-news, this situation went on while the IG (Inspector General) was investigating for months leading up to the 2012 election.

On May 17, we hear from Mr Miller the head of the IRS, who had previously testified in front of Congress before 2013 that essentially all was well.   Today he was questioned as to why he didn’t, since he knew about the IG investigation, disclose the improprieties at the time of his testimony.  Mr. Miller’s explanation was that of someone hiding something, “I answered the questions asked” that’s what a lawyer tells a criminal when under oath.  Avoid the question by answering a preprepared answer and only answer as limited as possible to the question at hand.

As a citizen, as listed throughout the Constitution of the United States of America, I am more than appalled at how the government is conducting business.  I think the Representative from Pennsylvania has summarized this best.

Enclosed here is the IG’s report.  This is redacted which also concerns me, as we have not been given the entire report, so what’s missing?   IG Report-revised-redacted-1

For citizens to have been profiled into certain groups by name and then treated, by what appears from the IG’s report and limited testimony, beyond the scope necessary to issue tax status, appears to be civil rights violations and criminal.  For the government to restrict its citizens from exercising its lawful right as upheld by the Supreme Court in Citizens United, is criminal.

To assign this as low level employees tells me one of two things, 1) either the executive branch, management of departments and managers are incompetent (see Stretched Beyond its Limits: Executive Branch) or 2) that the executive branch, management of departments and managers are in fact competent and decided to manage the TeaParty, Conservative, Christian and Jewish groups in this specific manner.

Either answer is criminal.

As tax payers we work hard for our money, we get up go to work, manage our affairs to make money and we pay into a system anywhere from around 1%  upwards to 55% of our income in support of this very government that is restricting citizen rights.  We deserve better.  Our politicians need to focus on the running of the government they created, or we must insist you shut the parts down that you are incapable of properly managing.  And to the Appointed staff, long time government Executives, Management and Employees, we deserve better.  You are shafting your neighbors, family, communities and nation by not standing up and calling out these situations.

The President, if not then The Congress, if not then The Press should demand that a full accounting be conducted and the criminal behavior be charged where it has happened, that firings be conducted where appropriate, that organizational notice be given and that proper and lawful enforcement as needed in the collection of government money be established.  Our participation is “voluntary” thus far.  Else it is The Citizens which shall demand a change and that request would be final.

The hard working members of America are watching, do the right thing!
