    IRS: Corrupt or Inept

    I can't see any other option, in all honesty. Does ANYBODY actually believe that erasing/losing all Lois's emails is really an honest mistake anymore?

    Shouldn't these people lose their jobs?

    Shouldn't these people be put in prison?

    I know that the IRS wouldn't let us off with an, "ooops, sorry I lost my receipts".

    We would be fined or jailed for tax evasion.

    Hypocrisy... of course.

    There's no reason they can't be considered both therefore I voted other.

    Government is inherently inept, not necessarily corrupt though.

    I'd have to read more on the IRS to determine whether or not the agency as a whole is simply corrupt.

    Inept, however, is a GIVEN.

    It's both. You need a "both" option or allow us to check both corrupt and inept.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed 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.

    Seriously?

    You need to ask?

    Lets see, Illegal spying, illegal harassment of a legal political party, destruction of public property, obstruction of justice and being ugly in a public place.

    Oh wait, ah heck, you're an Amerikan liberal, all that is a requirement for membership in the democratic party

    You should be. This is why we can't have nice things.
