Have you seen all the IRS employees dancing a line dance on your TV screen.

If you haven't, you will.

Nothing is too good for this God-like arm of the government which can ruin your life at the snap of a finger.

Now, we know of the the thousands of dollars spent making dopey videos they can show at IRS conferences at swanky locations.

Can't these people just pile into a conference room like we do at KETK and Skype or have a conference call?

Nothing is too good for the "government Lord."

We're finding out this week when the traveled to the west coast to learn about leadership they didn't even negotiate for the lowest rate at hotels.

Is this a government project or what?

We find out today, in the last two years, the IRS has met four times in Las Vegas.

Your price tag? Almost $700,000.

That's the same place the General Services Administration had lavish parties.

Our government is out of control.

And today, this, a report comes out stating a warehouse maintained by contractors for the Environmental Protection Agency contained secret rooms full of exercise equipment, televisions and couches, according to an internal audit.

Your cost, $5.3 million dollars.

Now, the head of the EPA says they are stopping this immediately, blah blah blah. They are stopping it until they do it again.

It's so easy to spend your money.

After being so refreshed, they can audit you and then shut you down with hundred of meaningless regulations.

Folks, this country is in trouble.

That my point of view, what's yours?

I'd sure like to fave some fun with my money too!

I have been chastized many tiimes for saying this but it is my opinion and I will speak. I can trace every problem with our society today to Lyndon Johnson's Great Society and the Civil Rights movement. This is what 50 years of welfare get you where 47 percent of the people are dependent on goverment handouts and believe a fool like Obuma is honest and can do no wrong, regardless of how much evidence to the contrary is offered.

Neil,

What is so suprising about the IRS and their Management, (Mis-management). Why would this suprise anyone? From what the public is finding out on a daily basis, this corruption and treason seems to run through every goverment agency. Honesty and integerity are none existant in the United States goverment. We are and have been living in a socialist state now bordering on communism. The biggest problem I see is that, "We The People ( citizens who vote) are responsible for this mess.

We The People haven't voted since the electronic voting machine became a fixture in our elections.

Folks, it is not just the IRS. EPA, GAO, and I bet just about every government agency is doing this.

The more you give the government, the more they will find ways to fatten their budgets. See if an agency turns in budget request LOWER than the year before their budgets will be CUT. They know this so they find ways to spend every dime they get.

How do I know? I used to work for such an agency and to blow off $80,000 on a 'mistake' is noting to them. After all, no bottom line to worry about.

No Neal, they can't do their meetings like we do. We are their private ATM machines. This is undoubtedly the most corrupt administration yet.
