“Not a single one of us is safe.”

I read that the government is funding more IRS agents to ferret out tax evaders and more FBI agents to pursue miscreants of every stripe. Some folks are quaking in their boots over this news fearing “persecution” because Ted Cruz has warned that these law enforcement agents will render us vulnerable. Color me naive, but I’m not too concerned.

I’m pretty careful about filing my taxes and my CPA is a Mormon whom I trust is not going to advise me to cheat our government out of their due. (it’s that whole “render unto Caesar” thing.) So, I’m thinking that maybe those who are opposing this new spending law are not confident that their tax returns would bear scrutiny.

Similarly, I can’t visualize the occasion where the FBI would knock on my door with a warrant. And, if they did, the worst they would discover is that I’m a lousy housekeeper and my desk is a mess.

So, I can’t help but wonder about those who oppose supporting our tax collectors and law enforcement. Do they have something to worry about? If so, I advise them to clean house.

  1. Of course they have something to worry about!
    Was no one else educated in English lit by a nun?!?
    “Methinks thou dost protest too much”? Anyone? Bueller? Oh, that one y’all get…🥸


    1. I missed out on the rigors of a catholic school education but drama class introduced me to the pleasures of Shakespeare. Bueller went over my head completely…as in Farris? Geez, I hate making a display of my nerdiness!

  2. I hear you, JRR. I don’t have much to hide either. Usually the guilty are far more worried about such things than the innocent. But I still don’t like the idea of feds prying into my business. Who knows when it will become a crime to own paper books or have a compost pile?


  3. LOL funny you should fear that just when they are mandating composting in my neck of the woods. It’s no worry for me, being vegetarian, but I don’t know what my neighbors are supposed to do with their meat scraps if they can’t put them in the trash.
