Image of the Day: IRS Collected Record Taxes Through July

Our latest Liberty Update highlights the danger of an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that's about to enjoy a doubling of funding and personnel via the abominable Manchin-Schumer "compromise" tax-and-spend-and-regulate bill.  Apologists for the bill rationalize that a turbocharged IRS is necessary to collect more taxes from the American people (and we highlight in our piece how Americans earning under $200,000, not the "rich," will be the primary targets).  The U.S. Treasury Department, however, just reported that the federal government just collected a record amount of taxes so far this fiscal year.  The obvious problem isn't insufficient funding of the federal government, but rather excessive spending:

Wednesday, December 14 2011

A New York personal injury lawyer recently filed a lawsuit against his upscale NYC gym because it stopped serving breakfast. 

Richard Katz is suing New York City's Setai Club & Spa Wall Street, claiming their misleading actions were illegal, despicable, reckless, malicious, deliberate and immoral.  Katz, who pays a $5,000 annual membership fee, states in his complaint that the gym promised “full complimentary breakfast” knowing that they would not be able to make good on the offer and that Katz relied on that promise to his detriment.

"It was a full-blown hotel breakfast," said Katz, 53, who lives in the West Village with his wife.  "I'd go to the gym in the morning, have a spa and a nice quiet breakfast and do some work -- they mucked it all up."

Katz is seeking $750,000 in damages.
