    Speaking of the attack on the IRS building in Texas, "I think if we’d abolished the IRS back when I first advocated it, he wouldn’t have a target for his airplane. And I’m still for abolishing the IRS, I’ve been for it for thirty years and I’m for a national sales tax."

    Is it OK to bomb Federal buildings? Is it OK to take violent action to oppose laws that you disagree with?

    Of course, even if you replaced all other taxes with a national sales tax, some agency would still have to go about the messy business of making sure that "internal revenues" were collected.

    If he doesn't want to call this agency the "Internal Revenue Service" because terrorists might target anything with the IRS name on it, perhaps he could propose a new, more politically correct sounding name.

    Let's call it the Pro-Life Tea Party Association for American Patriotism and the Founding Fathers.

    The Imperial Army and Corporate Subsidy slushfund??


    Which rearranged would make it the

    Corporate Imperial Army Subsidy Slushfund, or the CIA-SS as I like to think of it.


    ps that could also make it as the Subsidy Slushfund of the Corporate Imperial Army or the SS-CIA for short.

    the CIA-SS will suffice for most of us. But in case extra help is needed:

    the Kash Kollection Korps will make sure the far right nutcases pay their taxes
    the Cash Collection CorPs will make sure the far left nutcases pay their taxes

    Of course not.
    Is that what Bill Ayers did?

    Yes.

    Did he have anything to do with this attack?

    Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told a crowd at CPAC on Saturday that he could "empathize" with the suicide bomber who last week attacked an IRS office in Austin, and encouraged his listeners to "implode" other IRS offices, according to a witness.

    If King indeed was encouraging people to "implode" other IRS offices, he is calling for terrorist action against his own country. He should be arrested and charged with treason.
