I believe it was Theodore Logan who once said, "whoa"
You know taxes will go up again, that's typical Democrat behavior. "Let's suck them dry" mentality. 87, 000 new IRS agents to F up your life, meanwhile their IRS armed Stasi agents will be terrorizing your community. I despise those Bastards...

For now...
...I got nothing.

Yes, Box, you are so right. I think I'm going to need something much "harder" tonight.

Weaponizing the Bureaucracy: Who Will Protect Us from the Government’s Standing Army?

An excerpt:

Quote:
“A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison
The IRS has stockpiled 4,500 guns and five million rounds of ammunition in recent years, including 621 shotguns, 539 long-barrel rifles and 15 submachine guns.

The Veterans Administration (VA) purchased 11 million rounds of ammunition (equivalent to 2,800 rounds for each of their officers), along with camouflage uniforms, riot helmets and shields, specialized image enhancement devices and tactical lighting.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) acquired 4 million rounds of ammunition, in addition to 1,300 guns, including five submachine guns and 189 automatic firearms for its Office of Inspector General.

According to an in-depth report on “The Militarization of the U.S. Executive Agencies,” https://www.openthebooks.com/assets/..._Report_v5.pdf the Social Security Administration secured 800,000 rounds of ammunition for their special agents, as well as armor and guns.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) owns 600 guns. And the Smithsonian now employs 620-armed “special agents.”

This is how it begins.
