The IRS is not the only agency abusing government power. A small farmer takes on the EPA and a scientific study backs her up.
(The EPA is another federal agency that is impressed with its own power and arrogance.)

Some unions leaders have grown frustrated and angry about what they say are unexpected consequences of the new law — problems that they say could jeopardize the health benefits offered to millions of their members.
(Like our politicians, union leaders didn't bother to read the bill. But they would have gladly inflicted it on the rest of us but now they are being affected too. It's called blowback.)

The fifth night of rioting in Swedan.
“The problem is not from the Swedish government or from the Swedish people,” the editor in chief of Dispatch International said. “The last 20 years or so, we have seen so many immigrants coming to Sweden that really don’t like Sweden. They do not want to integrate, they do not want to live in [Swedish] society: Working, paying taxes and so on.”
“The people come here now because they know that Sweden will give them money for nothing. They don’t have to work, they don’t have to pay taxes – they can just stay here and get a lot of money. That is really a problem,."
(Alas, the elites in Europe - meaning the political elites and the media - have a religious belief in diversity. They will cling to their religion in spite of the facts and the evidence before their very eyes.)

It was intimidation pure and simple.
The inexplicable raid nearly two years ago on a guitar maker (Gibson Guitar Company) for using allegedly illegal wood that its competitors also used was another targeting by this administration of its political enemies. The Gibson CEO contributed to Republicans. His competitor contributed to Democrats.
(Looks like sleazy and corrupt Chicago-politics.)

GodTV, an international television company promoting Christian programs, has announced plans to set up headquarters for the United Kingdom in a red light district, right next to a LAP DANCING club.
(The scriptures say to be in the world, but not of it. Well, GodTV is IN it.)

Man was never noble by himself.
From Reason magazine: “It may astonish you readers, as it initially astonished me,” Diamond writes, “to learn that trench warfare, machine guns, napalm, atomic bombs, artillery, and submarine torpedoes produce time-averaged war-related death tolls so much lower than those from spears, arrows, and clubs.” So how can this be? Because “state warfare is an intermittent exceptional condition, while tribal warfare is virtually continuous.”
A 2012 study in The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B noted that the “anthropological record indicates that approximately 85 percent of human societies have permitted men to have more than one wife.” Yet in modern times normative monogamy has become dominant around the globe, increasing social peace by reducing competition among men. The researchers further noted, “Compared to monogamous societies, polygamous cultures see more rape, kidnapping, murder, assault, robbery, fraud, child neglect and child abuse.”
(Neither of these scientific conclusions will surprise Christians)

But I, for one, welcome the new killer robots. Progress, you can't stop it.
A United Nations human rights investigator called on Thursday for all states to declare a moratorium to prevent so-called "killer robots" being deployed on the battlefield. (The United States, Britain and Israel are testing the new robots.)
(I have a hunch of Muslim countries were testing killer robots, the U.N investigator would have kept quiet. Anyway, killer robots will be probably easier to deal with than the IRS.)
