TIME TO REVIEW THEÂ I.R.S.?
The Internal Revenue Service is the most-feared instrument of the federal government. The revelation it had focused its attention with the intention to punish select tax-exempt groups because of their political opposition to the presidentâ€™s agenda, demands heads roll … and only IRS heads, their apologies notwithstanding.
We need to know when congressional hearings will begin. To quote others as incensed as we are, â€œAn independent prosecutor is necessary unless the Congress is willing to take the lead.â€ We have watched how the FBI has used the IRS to batter targets into submission time and again. Will this never end?
One solution could be a panel picked by a lottery of taxpayers from each income category to set policy and oversee why and how the IRS spins its webs against individuals and groups. The FBI investigating its partner, the IRS, is one big joke.
INQUIRER DOES IT AGAIN
When have the main daily newspapers in Western Pennsylvania, particularly those covering Allegheny and Westmoreland Cos., ever endorsed a Philadelphian for judicial office? Seldom, if ever. They represent their geographical readership….
A simple fact of political life the Philadelphia Inquirer editorial board fails to understand.
How could they not endorse Judge Joe Waters for Superior Court? We have the feeling someone with a vested interest in Western Pennsylvania politics is steering the Inkieâ€™s editorial policies.
Judge Waters neednâ€™t worry, though; the Inkie endorsements seldom appear in the winnersâ€™ column.
