    Since the IRS employees enjoyed the parties, maybe we can make them pay it back or at least tax each and everyone of them as this should be considered income? All government employees should be held accountable for lavish parties, including the President.

    Unfortunately, accountability for ones actions seems to be inverse to the size of the business or government agency involved. When many of the banks risked toppling our financial system, we declared them “too big to fail” and funded them to continue operating. Nobody ever went to jail over that.

    We violated our own bankruptcy laws and screwed the bondholders of the two auto companies while guaranteeing (and expanding) the control and ownership of the unions. Many of those bondholders are just regular retiree’s and “normal folks,” that believed they had better protection under the law.

    Now the most powerful government agency “is sorry” for what they did and promise they have learned their lesson and won’t do it again.

    When you read the essays and letters of Benjamin Franklin, Jefferson and John Adams, there is one common theme regarding our Republic. They were all concerned that the government would grow so large and powerful that we would decline from being “the people,” to “the governed” to “the policed.”

    Unfortunately I fear their concern has already been realized…

    If you think the IRS is bad, check out the Pentagon, to say nothing of their off-the-record, unlimited expense account mercenaries.
