    Idea re. teabag parties: Send IRS agents to every one of them! Updated at 1:25 AM

    After all, the participants are very likely to:

    a) make north of $250 K a year (why else would you protest?) and/or
    b) hate to pay taxes (and are likely to try every shady loophole to avoid paying up).

    Just get each teabagger's name and give their tax forms a VERY thorough look.

    Is there a better chance to:

    - catch the nation's worst tax fraudsters,
    - generate revenue for the government,
    - reduce the stupid teabag thing's attendance to ZERO, because all the cowards will stay home, scared shitless?

    And who knows, maybe we learn that certain right wing "journalists" are just as creative with their taxes as they are with their reporting?

    1. I also hope that the Secret Service/Homeland Security will be out in force, videotaping

    Seriously, they need to record the face of everybody who attends these Loonypaloozas.

    8. If people congregate in a group and advocate Income Tax Evasion

    And then a few members of that group actually engage in Income Tax Evasion, then isn't everyone who participated guilty of conspiracy?

    We could use the IRS to take out a whole slue of right wingers based on their stupid tax protests.

    10. Just what will we become?

    I get the point. Over the last 20 or 30 years, war tax resisters have been visited by the IRS, some have had their personal property seized, some have ended up in prison. Turnabout is fair play.

    However, squashing a protest movement with the muscle of the federal government in this manner is wrong, even if the protest is lame. The IRS never acted to suppress war tax protest rallies, but they did visit pain upon those who were not paying their taxes, regardless of cause.

    I would hope for the same here.

    Yep, what you said. The money I sent him this year was well worth it.

    I see a tombstone in quaker bill's future.
    Of course, like any good ultra- liberal moron would, SurfingScientist puts forth the preposterous claim that the people at the Tea Parties will all be evil, rich executives who like exploiting the workers and trying to cheat out of paying taxes. That is especially funny considering how many people Obama has appointed to high positions who turned out to be tax cheats themselves.
    btw, what is up with the lefties calling them "Teabag parties" and "Teabaggers"? Is it because they're too stupid to realize the protests are a nod to a certain famous incident in American history, or just because the Left's constant obsession with sex causes them to try and insert it into everything?

    Sounds like some of obama's nominees and many democraps in CONgress.

    Some of the Moonbats just can't wait to play tyrant, can they.

    Its seems some on the left believe only they have the right to free speech and anyone else is subject to government harassment and maybe even prison.

    If the IRS followed the advice of the DU'er imagine one huge class action suit on abuse of civil rights by everyone of the following audit. To ask an entity to audit a person based solely on exercising their First Amendment rights isn't only beyond the pale, but is illegal. Imagine a video tape showing John Q. IRS agent asking more than one participant of any tea party for their identity and then an audit occurs? The IRS can't presume guilt, it has to have probable cause of tax evasion, not tax avoidance. Legal tax avoidance is what fuels CPA's and tax attorneys.

    I can see attorneys walking behind the IRS agent handling out business cards, saying "You get audited, I'll file your case on a contingent basis".....Hey, trial lawyers may contribute to Dems, but they also love making money!!!!!!!!!

    Like Gingersnap said, bring it on.:D
