Ja, thanks Gordon. I and perhaps plenty of other Americans are looking at
these kinds of questions in a different light with the revelations by the
top IRS officials this week. Is it not extraordinary that the former
director of the IRS, under whose leadership the agency targeted the Tea
Party and conservative groups, testified that she had done nothing wrong,
nothing illegal, then invoked the fifth amendment. Is not that
self-contradictory? If so, can we not assume the IRS, which has arbitrary
and unchecked powers under the 16th amendment, is itself simultaneously
criminal and is declaring itself above the law?
