Billionaire Elon Musk decided to poke some fun at fellow Americans on Thursday for the doubling in size of the Internal Revenue Service, a recent revelation that is no doubt going to be giving millions of folks around the country the yips for months to come.
Musk tossed up a meme on social media that featured an image of a British redcoat giving a right jolly old belly laugh that featured a caption saying, “when the country that revolted over taxes hires 87,000 new IRS agents.”
That one hurts, Musk. That one hurts.
However, he’s not exactly wrong, is he?
Our founding fathers are likely rolling around in their graves right now. We need to recapture a little of the spirit of 1776 and grow passionate about liberty and freedom again. Now, that doesn’t mean resorting to violence. Our founders left plenty of ways we can fight back, which is part of the brilliance of the American system.

Musk, who is a South African who lived in Canada before moving across the border into the U.S. and becoming a citizen, told a user on social media that he already gets “audited every year by default.” “I direct that any additional resources — including any new personnel or auditors that are hired — shall not be used to increase the share of small business or households below the $400,000 threshold that are audited relative to historical levels,” Yellen said to Rettig in a letter on Wednesday. “This means that, contrary to the misinformation from opponents of this legislation, small business or households earning $400,000 per year or less will not see an increase in the chances that they are audited.”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
