IRS HQ Flooded Out:

The Headquarters of the Internal Revenue Service, at 1111 Constitution Avenue in Washington, DC, has been closed due to flooding from the torrential rainstorms that hit Washington last week.

To which I say, the chickens are coming home to roost!

When I worked for the IRS in Manhattan, we were in a building whose elevators consistently malfunctioned (as did its air conditioning system). The same thing occurred in St. Louis . The IRS's Fresno facility had a leaky roof, and in Lanham, Maryland, a security guard sergeant at the IRS facility there refused to call the police when a gunpoint abduction occurred.

I am not gloating. My empathy lies with the IRS employees who have to work under such adverse conditions.

And speaking of flooding, America is flooded with illegal aliens. It seems that the Third Circuit Court of Appeals has ordered formerly lawful permanent resident alien Antonio Serafino deported, based upon Serafino's guilty plea to charges of tax evasion [the case apparently will not be officially reported, but can be found at Serafino v. U.S. Attorney General, 2006 U.S. App. LEXIS 16373 (3rd Cir., Docket numbers 05-2720 and 05-3577, 29 June 2006).].

We have now ridded ourselves of a tax evader. Bravissimo!!

So now that we have sent packing a tax evader who was here legally, howcum we don't even attempt to start deporting all of those tax evaders who are here illegally?
