    Great rebuttal.
    Compared to what?

    You: You're a liar.

    Compared to that?



    You find one case that kinda-sorta proves your point and suddenly the IRS has the authority to sidestep the Constitution and dig into whatever private records it wants? Get a grip, dude.

    Private businesses aren't called private just for the hell of it.

    Compared to a ruling from the Supreme Court that explicitly affirms what I said and refutes your lie.

    It doesn't "kinda-sorta" prove my point. These cases say:

    However, the IRS need not show probable cause in order to enforce a subpoena demanding that the defendant produce documents for a civil investigation.
    and

    the Commissioner need not meet any standard of probable cause to obtain enforcement of his summons
    A moderately competent 8th grader could read those sentences and conclude that you're wrong.

    Private businesses aren't called private just for the hell of it.
    And the best response you can come up with demonstrates a level of intellectual reasoning best suited to bumper stickers. Well done, all around.

    There comes a point in a "discussion" and I use that term loosely, with Apdst where it becomes futile. You RightInNYC are well past that point.
