There is no more feared an organization in this country, nay the world, than the IRS. I have had to deal with them and was all but told that you were guilty until you could prove beyond the shadow of a doubt otherwise. I won, but I paid an arm and a leg to get there, and never got the money back. Stories of people browbeaten by IRS tyrants abound. No mistake or omission is … Read more

The Brookings Institute came out with a study last week that looks at failures by the federal government. It concludes what we’ve talked about many times: that the federal government is fumbling the ball more and more often:

The federal government is failing now more than ever. That’s the conclusion of a unique taxonomy of federal ball-dropping just released by Paul C. Light, a non-resident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution.

I’ll pop up from my week off the internets to open a thread on Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, which was apparently shot down over the Eastern Ukraine today, possibly by Russian separatists. I’m not ruling out anything at this stage. We’ll have to see what comes out of this investigation. I’ll just note that I’m puzzled as to why the separatists would shoot down a passenger plane that was just passing 33,000 feet over their … Read more
If you have been living under a rock, you might have missed the current Obama Administration approved invasion from the south that’s been causing problems like this one, that will in the end hit us all. Me, I think this is yet another one in the many arrows in this administration’s quiver of “Destroy exceptional America” that the Obama administrations people have been running. But the real interesting thing is how the liberal left, … Read more
WaPo has an article how the newly elected government of India has opted to roll up their sleeves and go to work and gave up pleasures like golfing. I am certain this is the WaPo’s way of criticizing Obama, whom has set new records for finding things to do that don’t involve working, and spurring him on to fixing the mess we are in. Unfortunately for those of us that are not idiots of … Read more
I was surprised to see that WaPo, which so far has done an awesome job of providing cover to the Obama administration when it comes to the plethora of scandals its involved in, was finally admitting that the whole IRS is no scandal meme from the admin now seems to bely a campaign of lies:

It seems like there are as many Emmy categories as television programs — and at least one of them is big enough to include President Obama.
Obama’s appearance this year on Between Two Ferns — a Web-based parody talk show hosted by comedian Zach Galifianakis — was nominated for an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program.
The president did the program in an effort to reach young

A Manassas City teenager accused of “sexting” a video to his girlfriend is now facing a search warrant in which Manassas City police and Prince William County prosecutors want to take a photo of his erect penis, possibly forcing the teen to become erect by taking him to a hospital and giving him an injection, the teen’s lawyers said. A Prince William County judge allowed the 17-year-old to leave the area without the
Who would be surprised that when asked what the best solution to his drug problem would be, a crack addict would say the answer wasn’t to get into drug rehab, but to get more crack to smoke? Similarly, who would be surprised to find that when progressive shitbags get asked how to fix the massive deficit spending by the Obama administration their answer wouldn’t be to get spending under control, but that people already fleeced … Read more
