Keep IRS out of cars

April 25, 2014

Most Americans can understand why law enforcement and national security officials want access to information about us — though there are serious, in some cases overriding, invasion-of-privacy......

With multiple crises spiraling out of control around the world, stories about the Obama presidency are taking on the air of postmortems. What went wrong, who’s to blame, what next — even The New York Times is starting to recognize that Dear Leader is a global flop. “Obama Suffers Setbacks in Japan and the Mideast,” the paper declared on Friday’s front page. The double whammy of failure pushed the growing Russian menace in ­Europe to inside pages, but even they were chock-full of reports about utopia gone wrong.

Pards, I believe these seemingly unrelated actions by Government are part of a larger goal of controlling the population. We are inundated with bouncing-balls to keep our attention diverted. One thing is sure, the recent BLM incident has awakened a lot of Americans to part of this ploy.

Grant, you posed no less than 5 unrelated, assumptive questions and end with an indictment which has nothing to do with the Editorial. Your answer to my query was that your rant was about me. One simple question and once again fly off to non-sequiturville. Silly lib.

Since Bob51 appears to have gone deaf & blind when it's inferred that his proper screen name should be Hypocrite51 I am happy to inform him that my comment refers to the editorial to which it is attached.

That's like investigating everyone that walks past a bank because they may rob it. To far, too big brotherish. Too much opportunity for abuse by those in power. Oh that's right anything the government wants to do is ok because it might (maybe) save someone. If the IRS wants to catch a tax cheat they can and will. They do not need access to car travel records to everyone in the United States.

Grant makes a good point. There are many individuals involved in organized crime who were successfully prosecuted for tax evasion. For those of you who are worried about this, there are cabs.

Ummm so they GIVE OUT the information and I have to say it is so... is the fact that I confirm it is so the wrong thing or the fact that they know EVERYTHING about me and show it before I confirm the information? Take your time gville70, THINK about it for a change then comment. That would be nice.

Wait a minute, wait a minute. Are all of the self-righteous conservatives of Fulton County saying that criminals shouldn't be caught? Are they saying it's wrong for a person to cheat on their Social Services application but it's alright for the same person to cheat on their income tax return. Remember the Reagan-era Welfare Cadillac brouhaha? What about the shiny new Cadillac owned by someone who files a 1040 saying they earned less than $2,000 a year, or worse, didn't file a tax return at all. We hire investigators at DSS & we contract with an out-of-county firm to chase food stamp cheats but God help us if we're going to let the IRS chase income tax cheats? Get real & admit that reading this nonsense day after day only proves one thing - the number of hypocrites in Fulton County is at an all-time high & apparently growing very fast - with the chief hypocrite being the Editor of the Leader-Herald waving a big flag saying "HYPOCRISY RULES!"

The IRS already knows every detail of our lives. I do not see how adding my car to their list could make any difference at all! I went to the social security website to see what my SS EARNINGS and monthly benefits would be and was very surprised to find out what they knew about me and what I had to confirm to access MY social security information... my point is if the government knows ANYONE can know! Any of the letter agencies can access any of your information and you are not entitled to any privacy whatsoever. It is the new USA! Get used to it!

Orwell was right, too bad we did not listen. This is just the calm before the storm.
