I received a bogus “IRS” call today. It demanded my “immediate attention” and it came from Washington DC (or a repeater there). NEVER REPLY TO SUCH FLIMFLAMMERY! It’s just the latest iteration of the Nigerian Scam. No government agency acts in such a manner. IT’S FAKE… IT’S PHONY BALONEY… IT’S A SCAM AND FRAUD! Always be leery of anyone who phones you from out of the blue… especially, those who purport to be official and who DEMAND personal information. Have a care… we live in a feral unregulated world, where Libertarians, Dems, and Repugs all slobber their admiration of the rich and their money. Pecunia non olet… “money doesn’t stink”… that’s their motto. To think that yahoos like Rod Dreher cheer on deregulation… they call themselves “conservatives” to boot (a true conservative would never back deregulation, as a bedrock of true conservatism is that mankind is fallen and in need of regulation). It does take all kinds, doesn’t it?
