story that appeared online this morning. Anyone who knows me, knows I have no love for or of our current government (at any level). Neither do I have any particular attraction to Mr. Snipes. However, I have to say I TOTALLY agree with him with regards his comments in this story. In short, no uncertain terms; Fuck the goddamn IRS. Big government sucks. It is in fact, a breeding ground for small minded individuals who are desirous of nothing more than their own self aggrandizement. An organism of do nothing, know nothing single celled brainless sycophants who build their existence on the backs of real people actually trying to do something with their lives.
Without getting toooooo high up onto the ol soapbox, take a moment and read the following. Wesly, I couldnt agree more! I think you need to go all "blade" on their asses...I think government employees are actually vampires you know..... Just a thought, juuuusst a thought.

"These are the bumps and bruises of life. They build character and you learn from it as you move on."
