Tyler (KETK) — 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?
