IRS says it cannot locate Lois Lerner emails prior to 2011

I smell a RAT!

There should be copies of all GOVT emails stored on a sever someplace, at least, that's what I've been told that somewhere, someplace a record exist and it doesn't matter if the computer they were sent from or received it crashed/all emails were deleted or had its hard drive replaced.

    Where is the outrage in all this? It should be up there with Watergate and would be if a Republican administration was in the White House. The DEMS would be screaming like raped apes :yikes::yikes:

    OK, so fair is fair, right?

    I say congress passes a law that says that anyone being audited by the IRS simply has to say "My computer crashed and I lost all of my documents" and the audit is over. No fines or penalties levied. All is forgiven.

    I'm sure the IRS would understand that his is perfectly acceptable, right?

    Right.
    That's all I got.

    No rats, no snakes--that implies deceptive behavior. These mother******s aren't even bothering to hide it anymore. They are all crony, corrupted career politicians.

    -Democrats are operating with impunity and boldly in the face of the American people, unabated.
    -Republicans are (as far as I'm concerned) just sitting by as it happens, occasionally bawking and clucking in a passive aggressive protest with no substance or demand for action.

    At what point in a narcissistic, tyrant controlled government, do the people step over the Congress's alleged duty to oversee and investigate government criminal activity and drag those pieces of s*** out of the Capitol and demand answers at the business end of a blade?

    How much longer are we as a people going to just watch from the bleachers of this Republic and wait, wait, wait for a savior.

    Saviors won't come from within, they'll have to come from without.

    I've already lost all faith in this government. To get that trust back will take a long, long time.

    Just put the whole lot of them with access to those servers in jail for contempt of court and obstruction of justice charges and let them remain there until the 'lost' E-mails are found. If they remain in jail for the rest of their lives, then so be it. They would also not get paid for duration of the incarceration. Seems fair to me.

    I heard on Fox news earlier, that attempting to use the IRS to harass political rivals was one of or would have been included in the charges listed on Richard Milhous Nixon's Impeachment proceedings/charges!

    No Republican administration has had the guts to try the "dog ate my homework" excuse since Nixon and the 18 minute gap. He didn't come close to getting away with it, and if the entire Republican Congress doesn't start demanding a special prosecutor, and quick, we will have a massive data dump to cover all the criminal behavior of this regime for the last six years. If they can get away with this crap, they can get away with anything.

    Yeah, wishful thinking. The **** who call themselves republicans will lt it go, like always. You know, the ing dickbags that Im supposed to vote for as the lesser of two evils. them, And, the horse they rode in in.

    Don't look at it that way - try this: The Democrats are evil, but the Republicans are only worthless and cowardly. Given those two choices, do you want the ones who are pro-actively destroying the republic with the fervor of the true believer, or the ones who are passively watching the Constitution circle the drain?

    Er...never mind. :uhm:

    Right you are Chief, Cheney is not my favorite lying weasel. He did try to do something for his country though, trying to eliminate one lawyer. Dickie boy gets a spot at the front of the organ transplant line, thanks to the taxpayers providing him with the finest health care that we can afford. What was this thread about??
  • bisleybisley Senior Member Posts: 10,700 Senior Member
    If we do accept that all politicians are lying weasels, Cheney would be in the top ten of my favorite lying weasels. I fault him for pushing the Patriot Act, but I have to admit that, at the time, I really believed that the damage to our civil liberties would be small and temporary. So, I have to concede that it is possible that he simply was as naïve as I was. The only other 'lie' I can think of is his stated belief that Saddam Hussein had WMD. I also believed that, independent of Cheney's statements, as did a bunch of his political opponents, at the time. It's also entirely possible that Saddam sent his WMD to Syria.

    I'm unaware of his other lies, and I know lots of folks who have peppered their hunting buddies, or had it done to them (me included). So, I don't deduct as many points for his failures as a lot of folks do. And, fair or not...if I was looking at certain death and somebody offered me a chance to live a few more years, I'd probably take it. He's not a perfect man, but I agree with him on a few very important things.

    Did you forget about..."We'll be treated as liberators" "The war will be over in weeks not months" "Iraq's oil will pay for the war" (That's a Biggie!) and last but not least "The insurgents are in their Death throes". We lost 4,500 brave men & women there at Cheney's urging. And Halliburton made a fortune off the backs of the US taxpayers in a "No Bid" contract that Cheney brokered behind closed doors. My fingers are getting tired. Just my take.

    Riiiight. Computer crashed.

    The administration was contemplating a couple of different excuses, and determined that "computer crash" was slightly more believable than "the dog ate them". So far it has been a good choice, because no ones in jail yet.

    Nor will anyone be going there. The Republicans don't have the stones to go for the jugular, the media will not attack their friends, and finally, the majority of the American people aren't even paying attention, the Kardashians are on somewhere.

    the fact that the IRS presents Lois Lerner's computer crashing as the reason for no Email Records supposes that they think Congress, and We the People don't realize that Emai resides on servers and not just populating on an individual computer. And the fact that several people under Lerner also experiences such "crashes" puts it in the twilight zone.

    so does anyone really thing that "we can vote enough republicans in" and cure this?
  • BigDanSBigDanS Senior Member Posts: 6,807 Senior Member
    This is so totally bogus I cannot begin to start. Emails will be archived on the server for years, and in some cases, forever. A high ranking government official would most certainly have archived files, and therefor the BS detector is going off huge.

    They should call in a security expert from the military and have it excavated.

    What a jerk!

    Did the hard drives of 6 others also fail? I thought I heard that. If so, has anyone computed the probability that all of the hard drives in that work group failed?

    The other day on Fox news they interviewed some woman that was supposedly a "former IRS employee" and she claimed that all correspondence with the IRS is stored on three different servers spread out across the country to prevent this very thing from happening along with an outside company being contracted to archive their data as an additional backup. It sounded feasable.
