IRS pillow talk

IRS pillow talk

Question

Professor,

I live in the liberal blue state of California. I really get the sense that liberals are trying to outlaw everything that conservatives find important. It really feels like they look at a menu of conservative issues, values, and hobbies and pick the next thing they want to do away with or attack. It just never seems to end. Is there anything to back up or refute this perception?

Answer:

This might help clarify the situation for you, Richard.

And from Weasel Zippers, including this:

Yeah, pretty much:

Comments

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) has died at the age of 89 of viral pneumonia, The Bergen Record reported Monday, citing the senator’s office.

This is one vote that Harry Reid probably still thinks he has.

In previous IRS scandals it was the powerful abusing the powerful—a White House moving against prominent financial or journalistic figures who, because of their own particular status or the machineries at their disposal, could pretty much take care of themselves. A scandal erupts, there are headlines, and then people go on their way. The dreadful thing about this scandal, what makes it ominous, is that this is the elites versus regular citizens. It’s the mighty versus normal people. It’s the all-powerful directors of the administrative state training their eyes and moving on uppity and relatively undefended Americans.

That’s what makes this scandal different, and why if it’s not stopped now it will never stop. Because every four years you can get yourself a new president and a new White House, but you won’t easily get yourself a whole new administrative state. It’s there, it’s not going away, not anytime soon. If it isn’t forced back into its cage now, and definitively, it will prowl the land hungrily forever.

This is simply true.

The Obamic Decline has seen one thing rise enormously, and that is the administrative state. It does not simply go away, once expanded.

And it WILL be a reliable organ of the Collective, regardless of how conservative a president or future Congress may be. It HAS been so, and it WILL be more so.

It will take a fundamental, radical movement to pull it down, and intense, committed political will.

W’s biggest fault was his horrid appointment history; this is but one. Harriet Miers. “Brownie”. Christopher Cox. Etc.

All I know about Shulman is about 10 minutes of his testimony I have seen in clips. Given how arrogant, petulant, and cocky he was, he seems to be begging – almost daring – anyone to investigate further. Now with this pillow talk potential tie, we can only hope he gets full scrutiny for all his actions.

Pillow talk with Richard from California. Did the professor just come out?

Bet the IRS looked the other way on this one. There’s apparently nothing wrong when Democrats use a tax exempt for political purposes:
