Default Plane crashes into IRS building

Quote:
That little lesson in patriotism cost me $40,000+, 10 years of my life, and set my retirement plans back to 0. It made me realize for the first time that I live in a country with an ideology that is based on a total and complete lie. It also made me realize, not only how naive I had been, but also the incredible stupidity of the American public; that they buy, hook, line, and sinker, the crap about their "freedom" … and that they continue to do so with eyes closed in the face of overwhelming evidence and all that keeps happening in front of them.

Why is it that a handful of thugs and plunderers can commit unthinkable atrocities (and in the case of the GM executives, for scores of years) and when it's time for their gravy train to crash under the weight of their gluttony and overwhelming stupidity, the force of the full federal government has no difficulty coming to their aid within days if not hours?

I saw it written once that the definition of insanity is repeating the same process over and over and expecting the outcome to suddenly be different. I am finally ready to stop this insanity. Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, let's try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well.

AUSTIN, Texas - A man apparently upset with the Internal Revenue Service set fire to his home, got into a small plane and crashed it Thursday into a multistory office building, authorities said.

Surprised this doesn't happen more often. The IRS can do things that are pretty messed up. Since this country was formed by people who hated taxes, does that make him a true patriot?

I heard on the light rail the real reason why this guy did this.

Apparently, his wife told him that she gave an "accidental" bj to his daughter's boyfriend who just so happens to work for the IRS.

They didnt hate taxes. They hated taxes and not having any representation for their own interests. It was "No Taxation without Representation" ... not "no taxation"

I hope no soulless IRS people lost their lives. But I hope the fire destroyed their most comfortable office chairs - forcing them to sit on those metal folding chairs. I hope doing so gives them all really bad hemorrhoids.

I had a bad experience with them several years ago. What npf said about them doing things that are pretty messed up is spot on. I hate them from the very pit of my soul. My experience with them left me of the opinion that their employees have a near-evil combination of power and low intelligence.

To make a depressingly-long story short, THEY made a mistake that cost me A LOT of money. Okay, so people make mistakes. No big deal. That's part of life. But their "organization" is so bureaucratic and inept, getting a mistake fixed is darn near impossible. I spent three years fighting them over something that could have been fixed immediately by a private company making a similar mistake. And, in the process, they had the ability to make my life an absolute hell (credit dings, levies on property, etc). When you finally get them to fix their mistake, they act like they have done you a favor.

Seriously, it was a keystone cops routine - assuming the cops had small brains and rotten souls.

If you think private corporations are any better, try fixing a credit report error.

Well... it's kind of terrorism. Is it meant to intimidate the population? Or is it just a random attack out of anger?

It seems terrorism gets thrown around too much.

I actually just did. I was suprised at how easy it was. It took about 45 days, but I expected that going into it.

It might happen more often the way taxes are going to go. Meh, don't see the reason to crash planes into buildings though. Just deal with it. Nothing you can really do... we're ants.

What is happening in this country in no accident, people that think like you allow, no invite it to happen.

I only hope you are making a joke as others have suggested.

I really hope this is sarcastic. I'm 99.9% sure it is... but if it's not, oh boy oh boy.

What, you think this is the land of the free or something? It's turning into Minority Report these days.

I don't think it is right. I just know that there are crazy people in this world.
