    Feds sue anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan over back taxes
    SACRAMENTO, CA (KXTV) - The federal government has filed a lawsuit to force anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan to provide her financial records to the Internal Revenue Service.

    An IRS revenue officer said Sheehan refused to answer any questions about her finances after receiving a summons at her Vacaville home.

    Sheehan said she's always been up front with the IRS and has no intention of paying her taxes. She says the government has already taken enough from her.

    "If they (federal government), can give me my son back, I'll pay my taxes, but that's not going to happen," Sheehan said.

    67. Why not countersue with a wrongful death civil action against the government...

    ... alleging their willful prosecution of an illegal war based on known and provable deceptions led to the death of her son.

    I don't like jury duty as a rule, but that's one I'd be happy to serve on
    Now that is something i would love to see happen....

    These people are idiots. But this is funny:

    5. Here's an interesting thought. If your kid gets killed in the military, excuse family from paying

    taxes for that yr, including not only the dead military person's family, but his/her parents. I wouldn't cause a lot of problems in the gvt and might be a decent thing to do.

    I know, the "kid" is an adult so why should his/her parents get a tax break, but just thinking it would be decent.

    22. Sounds sort of like a payoff to me

    Or a bribe. I think it sounds kind of cheap and disgusting, as if escaping paying your taxes for a year is compensation for the death of a child. As if that would even the balance sheet. Money, money, money: I thought only Republicans think about it all the time.

    Sorry, but in a country with a volunteer army, that is not how things work. Death benefits, yes; parents escaping their taxes, no. We're Democrats: we all pay taxes because we believe in contributing to the common good (and to fixing those things we disagree are contributing to the common good through the democratic system).

    Did Cindy Sheehan ever think that by withholding her taxes she harms somebody else's child? I bet she didn't.
    Unless, of course, you are Charlie Rangel, Timmy Geithner or any of the other prominent Democratic tax cheats currently in the government.

    No. No she never thought of anything... past herself. Her son was an adult. He volunteered to serve his country in a military capacity, and unfortunately, was killed in the line of duty. How long did it take for a headstone to be placed at his grave? While she trotted around telling anyone who would listen, how EVIL America is...

    No argument, she's clueless, but I love how the DUmmies think that Democrats pay taxes.

    Yeah, but they think it for the wrong reasons.

    She's crazy and needs some serious therapy. DU pisses me off about this more than anything else, because they have enabled her illness instead of helping her grieve for the loss of her son without becoming a media whore spectacle.

    They have no interest in her except as a media spectacle. Private grief doesn't advance their agenda.

    That is the main reason I don't post over there anymore. That, and the hive mind that expects everyone to agree about every issue.

    They've been doing the same thing with their own members for years ( i.e. UGP).
