What a load of...the IRS is now saying they threw away all the broken hard drives Darrell Issa subpoenaed to look into cases of the IRS bullying the Tea Party.

This is like something out of high school. No, not even high school. That would be insulting.

I try and not be a conspiracist. I try and see both sides, but anyone can see this is just another stonewalling technique by this administration.

Remember Fast and Furious and Benghazi? All they try and do when they get their hand caught in the cookie jar is stall, run out the clock.

This latest truckload of Bravo Sierra just takes the cake. No emails, the hard drive crashed, then, ooopsie!

The press mostly just sits on their hands. 

This week, D.C. reporters were too sad about the garage where Woodward met Deep Throat was being tor down. They were too upset about that to be upset about this fiasco.

Lets turn the tables on the IRS lie-- it is a lie. I don't say that often, but it is this time.

What if the IRS was down your throat with a a full-scale investigation? They accused you of stealing their tax money. If there was a problem with your computer, do you think they'd forget about you? Do you think the hard drive crash would be an acceptable excuse?

If there was a hard drive crash, would they be okay with you just smirking and saying, "I threw the hard drive away."

What if you told the IRS what they told us: "Stuff happens." They'd throw your keister in jail.

They'd probably send some of those IRS cops who needed all those new shotguns and ammo that was in the news lately. Even if information was not available, there is always our friends at the NSA who brag.

They have every keystroke of data on file.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

News flash.. Final US GDP contracts 2.9% vs -1.7% estimate; May Durables drop 1.0%.

Yep, still in a recession FIVE + years into Obama's trainwreck.

Hope of change in 2014. Can't vote Obama out so vote dems out and show our displeasure at this pitiful inept and crooked DEMOCRAT Administration.


Boy the Odumass and IRS supporting liberals are all of a sudden silent. Invite them to come on back and argue this topic. Its really dull in this room without their dumb comments. Jttpm, as far as a national sales tax goes, you have to include everything in the said tax or the democruts would ruin the idea by exempting most items and then you would still need an income tax. No, the only way it would work if there are no exemptions whatever. Make everyone pay the tax.

And I'm not saying it wouldn't work. I'm saying it would be corrupted from the start. And both parties would have a hand in corrupting it. Nor do I think it would eliminate the need for a tax collection agency.


the drives don't matter. The emails would have been backed up by a NETWORK SERVER. Think of places like were YOU get your email. Isn't it by your Internet provider and if your PC dies, the emails are on their server. Right? Well the IRS has it's on LAN (or more likely a WAN for the whole US) and a email sever backs it up nightly.


Good point deaf. They probably are all backed up on a cloud server somewhere.

News flash... IRS Chief Insists Law Hasn't Been Broken, Admits He Doesn't Know Law...

Duh... he don't know the law but is paid $$$. Poor baby.

Maybe an OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE charge might refresh his memory.

Hope for change in 2014. Can't vote Obama out, but we can vote all the dems out so show our displeasure with this administration.

Oh liberals and Odumaass Supporters,

Where Art Thou Liberals???????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Don, I repeat what Deaf said. Where are all you liberals now? Why don't you come to the aid of your POTUS, Erick Holder, NSA, and especially Lois Lerner and the IRS. Tell us again about lost e-mails, lost and erased hard drives when it is federal law that these e-mails have a hard copy that is supposed to be filed. Tell us again about this administrations honesty and integrity. Tell us again how it is not the fault of the POTUS when the whole country knows he is supposed to be in charge.

News Flash.. GALLUP: Obama favorability dips well below Bush, Carter...

And after the mid-term election... WE WILL IMPEACH HIM. No 'ifs', 'ands', or 'buts'.

And he richly deserves it.

Well don, then how do you explain the IRS, which in their own laws says emails are official documents, kind of loses the very ones, for TWO YEARS, asked for, even though everyone knows they back them up to other servers (and not the users own hard drive.)

And what does the head IRS honcho say? Why the dog ate it, and then the dog got ran over, and the car then was hit by a train!

Come one don... you know this is illegal as can be. It's called OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.

The only way to truly erase a hard drive is with a powerful magnet. Format and fdisk don't fully erase data. Data can be retrieved from a crashed drive. The NSA and FBI do it routinely. There are even private firms that retrieve data. The person or persons who threw away the drives in question are guilty of tampering with evidence. Reminiscent of Nixon's lost tapes. It will be interesting to see if this blatant lawlessness stands unchallenged.

Joe Stack had it going on !

As if there weren't enough reasons to support the FairTax - here's another one: Not only does it fund America's needs more appropriately, IT ELIMINATES THE IRS!!

That's one argument I disagree with on the "Fair Tax". How does it eliminate the IRS? Even with a national sales tax, we will still need an agency to enforce and oversee collection of the tax. The problem with the IRS and all gov't is that under our Constitution they serve the people, they do not serve gov't as they currently act. Anyone who thinks it's okay for gov't to serve itself only if the right party is in charge does not truly trust and supports the Constitution.

What's wrong idiot? Pete? Don?

Cat got your tongue?

Sooner or later there will be another John Dean. Or Snowden. Someone in the IRS will get fed up and they will cough up evidence. But it is obvious that this Administration makes Richard Nixon look like a decent citizen and not a crook.

But just wait, the Middle East is falling apart, and these illegal immigrants will have some very unintended consequences for Obama.

Hope for change in 2014. Can't vote Obama out so vote dems out and IMPEACH Obama. That is the only thing that will stop him.

Since when has the Internal Revenue Service been fair? Tell me one taxpayer who thinks the Income Tax is a fair tax distributed evenly to all taxpayers? Tell me that we could eliminate most of the IRS by eliminating the Income Tax and replacing it with a federal sales tax without exceptions wouldn't be a fair tax? Anytime you purchase anything, you pay tax. Money goes straight into the treasury, No forms for individuals, then the IRS could concentrate on businesses especially big corporation

Just food for thought. Let's say we do replace income tax for a sales tax. We'd install the sales tax first, then since taxes are almost never removed, income tax will almost assuredly remain. Next, how quickly do you think the left would start crying the fair tax is unfair to the poor and minorities, that the rich aren't paying their fair share (their go to attacks). So let's say no tax on say food and a few other needs, then do we charge higher taxes on more expensive items?

neal stated "I try and not be a conspiracist. I try and see both sides",

Well neal we all know that , that statement is a bald face lie
