    Re: IRS: So… Our Computer Crashed And Erased All Of Lois Lerner’s Emails

    You know, it's like there were two idiots in the IRS sitting in and office and came up with the idea of a hard drive crash. Yeah, that'll do it!
    Obviously, they didn't even bother to consult with an IT person, or even someone with a little knowledge of data back up, to see if the excuse was even plausable. If they had, they would have known how crazy of an idea it was before they put this out there.
    The more I think about it, the worse, this gets, I mean in terms of the chance that this is not a lie/cover up by the IRS.

    I still think that we'd be well served to get a report from a tech involved rather than the journalist's impression of a third-hand report (at least third hand).

    If you think that the regular "telephone game" is bad try adding a journalist and an editor into the line.

    Because, honestly the report doesn't pass the smell test.

    I suspect that our info is faulty.
    I may be wrong.

    This is exactly the same scenario as the missing "20 minutes of Watergate tapes" around 1973...but this will never make it to an investigation or a presidential resignation.
    Liberalism—dividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    Perhaps I have. What is your question on the HD Crash?

    You asked for documentation. Documentation of what in particular?
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Yup. The Bush Administrations certainly used this excuse, too, re. the dismissal of the 8 US Attorneys.

    Bush White House email controversy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    And this has what to do with the truth or non truth of this particular incident?

    Just showing that this is indeed not the 1st time emails "disappear" into thin air, and that government corruption was fine and dandy in 2007.

    In other words it's still the same team sport mentality that enables the perpetrators and pisses on the masses?

    Perhaps more illegal because they used non-governmental email servers.... but also more plausible because of the same reason. Then again, server technology has been progressing... and there's little to no chance non-goverment servers were used here. So this lie will (I hope) be uncovered before long.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
