Just for the record, I am not condoning violence against any IRS worker. However, at the same time, there is very little love between Americans and the bane of our existence. Common sense dictates that the IRS policing Obamacare would be a problem for the citizenry. Obama should know better. Oh I forgot, he could care less.
“The federal government is investigating dozens of death threats to IRS employees that have been posted online since the House passed the health care bill, FoxNews.com has learned.
The health care law has sparked protests on radical anti-tax and anti-government Web sites and within their private, password-protected e-mail lists and message boards. Some writers have labeled March 21 — the day the House passed the bill – ‘Bloody Sunday,’ and they see it as a call to violent action against IRS workers.
In the days following the House vote, animosity toward the IRS intensified, and many heated online protests included specific discussions about the best way to go about killing tax agents.
Hundreds of comments were posted in response to an incendiary story on infowars.com, the radical far-right Web site owned by radio host Alex Jones. The story, entitled, ‘The Cost Of Defying Obamacare: $2,250 a Month And IRS Goons Pointing Guns At Your Family,’ focused on the ‘increasing militarization of the IRS’ and its expansion of powers under the new health care law.
One commenter wrote: ‘If they actually try to do this, there is going to be a whole lot of thugs start vanishing. This is the last line in the sand. Those fools have just signed their death warrants!!!
‘theres gonna be alot of IRS agents needing healthcare if they try to terrorize us Americans,” another comment read. Yet another wrote, “Come and take them…….they will have to hire so many IRS agents because…well when 10 a day get killed….you do the math.’
A federal probe has been launched into the comments. ‘We are actively investigating all threats made against IRS employees,’ J. Russell George, treasury inspector general for tax administration, said in a statement to FoxNews.com Tuesday morning.”

Found this on THE UNION NEWS BLOGSPOT and thought it timely and worth sharing.
“I came across a news story from last September that makes a lot more sense today. President Obama then announced that, starting in 2010, tax refunds could be sent as government savings bonds, rather than as checks. Just mark a box on your return, and *voila!* — you’re helping fund the Democrats’ out-of-control deficit spending.”
What’s next: a telethon?
Are you feeling me? Clearly there is no end to government greed as Obama and his merry band of thieves continue in their quest to pilfer the coffers dry.
Translation: If you are a senior or disabled, “No Tax Break for you, not really!
“Social Security beneficiaries received notices last month that they soon will be getting a $250 check courtesy of President Obama’s economic recovery package, but the administration did not say that some recipients may have to give part of it back.
The problem: Seniors who also work and qualify for Mr. Obama’s $400 Making Work Pay middle-class tax cuts may find themselves forced to give back some or all of the Social Security bonus come tax-filing time in 2010.
The result, some economists say, could be serious confusion for tax filers.
“This is a compliance headache that borders on being a nightmare. It’s going to be complicated to reconcile these payments,” said American Enterprise Institute economist Kevin Hassett.
The one-time payments that will be sent this month to millions of Social Security retirees and beneficiaries of other federal entitlement programs are part of a little-noticed provision in the $787 billion economic stimulus law approved by Congress in February.
But recipients who are still working full or part time to supplement their income may also qualify for Mr. Obama’s Making Work Pay tax cuts, targeting lower- to middle-income workers.
In the murky world of tax policy, the answer seems to be that they can’t fully benefit from both, and the “surplus” has to be sent back to the government.
But there is little if any discussion of this in either the Internal Revenue Service’s notices or the letter that went out to 50 million Social Security recipients last month….”
No surprise there. In Obama’s world, someone has to suffer in order for Obama to realize his healthcare reform.
What is disgusting and vile is that people who never worked a day in their lives are getting $250.00 checks for never working a day in their lives and those who worked and paid taxes all of their lives will receive a check that they have to return next year.
Damn, it’s kind of like a bailout, but not really.
Social Security Benefits Not Expected to Rise in ’10
And just in case Obama misses someone in his scam job, Congress is re-writing tax codes and Obama wants more money for his healthcare reform. What a p*&^%)_+!
So he has set his sights on the disabled and the elderly receiving social security benefits, many of whom worked their whole lives and paid taxes and into social security for decades.
Last summer, Obama said that he would increase taxes on the rich, which would have amounted to 5% of the population. In the past year, the group has dwindled down to more like 2%. Therefore, in order for Obama to achieve his agenda, he must come up with at least another 3%
“For the first time in more than three decades, Social Security recipients will not get any increase in their benefits next year, federal forecasts show.
The absence of a cost-of-living adjustment, calculated under a formula set by law, will be a shock to older Americans already hit by plummeting home values, investment losses and rising health costs. More than 50 million people receive Social Security.
In theory, low inflation is good for people on fixed incomes. But it is creating political and policy problems for Congress, which is just learning of the implications for Social Security and Medicare.
The forecasts, by the Obama administration and the Congressional Budget Office, indicate that Social Security beneficiaries will not receive any cost-of-living increase in 2010 or in 2011. The COLA is intended to preserve the purchasing power of Social Security, by increasing benefits to keep pace with consumer prices. In the last year, overall inflation has been low, largely because of the economic downturn and a decline in energy prices. “
I have often said and stand by it, Obama is no different than the con artists on the corner of Broadway and Wall Street running their three card monty scam or shell game on whomever is stupid enough to stop and give them the time of day.
It has become quite clear that the elderly and the disabled are Barack Obama’s sacrificial lambs.
Back in the day, there was a song out that said, “If you dance to the music, don’t you know you’ve got to pay to the piper? Ask your momma.”
To those robots who voted for Obama, you are getting your check any day now. For those who work, how does $7 a week extra in your check feel? Thought you’d get it all in one check? Bet you didn’t see that weekly pittance coming. Well if you didn’t see that coming, just wait until you see what hits you next spring.
Your messiah has his minion, Turbo Tax Tim re-writing the 65,000 page tax code which already contains 35,000 plus amendments. One year gives the government plenty of time to figure out how many ways to make you dance for the check your messiah promised. How do you like your messiah now?
Obama’s ways are the ways of the street corner con who will sweeten the pot just enough to reel a fool in.
“Millions of Americans enjoying their small windfall from President Barack Obama’s “Making Work Pay” tax credit are in for an unpleasant surprise next spring. The government is going to want some of that money back.”
POTUS along with Turbo Tax Tim has run a game on the American people. The pay off for POTUS and minions is next spring.
“But new tax withholding tables issued by the IRS could cause millions of taxpayers to get hundreds of dollars more than they are entitled to under the credit, money that will have to be repaid at tax time.
At-risk taxpayers include a broad swath of the public: married couples in which both spouses work; workers with more than one job; retirees who have federal income taxes withheld from their pension payments and Social Security recipients with jobs that provide taxable income.
The Internal Revenue Service acknowledges problems with the withholding tables but has done little to warn average taxpayers.”
Nothing can kill a good love affair quicker than money problems.
“The tax credit was designed to help boost the economy by getting more money to consumers in their regular paychecks. Employers were required to start using the new withholding tables by April 1.
The tables, however, don’t take into account several common categories of taxpayers, experts said….”
Even less assuring is the fact that Turbo Tax Tim is treating the problem in a “maybe it will go away” manner.
In any event, Obama has once again made a sucker of the American people and its going to be a kicker.
Cash-strapped state says those who overpaid in 2008 are out of luck, while other checks will be held for 30 days as it tries to ward off bankruptcy.
California will not pay tax refunds for individuals and business that overpaid 2008 taxes, in order to conserve dwindling cash for priority payments including school spending and debt repayment required by state law, the state’s controller office said Friday.
Other state checks to be postponed for 30 days include payments for vendors who provide services and products to the state government and state checks to a million aged, blind and disabled Californians to cover rent and utilities bills, State Controller John Chiang’s office said in a statement.
Various state officials have been warning in recent weeks that the most populous U.S. state’s coffers would run dry if Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and lawmakers fail to balance the state’s current budget. The governor in his state of the state speech Thursday said California faces insolvency within weeks if it does not balance its books.
CALIFORNIA WITHHOLDS TAX REFUNDS. http://money.cnn.com/2009/01/16/news/economy/california.reut/index.htm
In the meantime, the government is spending millions if not billions on President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration and surrounding events.
The hypocrisy here can be no uglier.
And when they are done keeping California’s tax refunds, who is next? All this and and increase in taxes. I did not vote for this. Did you?
