There's a lot of civilian stuff that's being "weaponized." This may be a cartoon, but it's not a joke. Local police forces are being issued armored cars, "heavy" weapons and even tanks. And who would think that the Library of congress needs its own weapons?
And the IRS under Obama is out to get you if you oppose him.
WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama on Sunday told Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly there is not even a “smidgen of corruption” in the IRS targeting scandal.
Tell that to Richmond, Texas, resident Catherine Engelbrecht. In two decades as a small business owner, she had never been audited or investigated, but in 2010 she asked the IRS for non-profit status for her grassroots organizations True the Vote and King Street Patriots. Since then she, her organizations, and her company have been subjected to at least 15 visits from the IRS, FBI, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
“It certainly makes one stop and think when there is inter-agency collusion,” Engelbrecht said Thursday. “It is the weaponization of government.”
