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:

Thursday, June 19 2014

An Ohio woman is suing Syracuse (NY) Crowne Plaza Hotel for $1 million in damages after falling off a “defective” bar stool in the public lounge.

Antoinette Allison, of Reynoldsburg, Ohio, was waiting for her food at the restaurant lounge when she claims to have fallen from a stool that was too high off the ground. The exact height of the stool was not provided in the legal claim, but Allison alleges in her lawsuit that hotel management knew of other problems with the height of the stool.

"Said bar stools were more dangerous than patrons would expect and safer designs are on the marketplace," lawyer Mark Ventrone wrote in the complaint.

Allison, whose fall from the stool caused her to land on her wrist and suffer multiple fractures, which required surgery, is suing the hotel for $1 million in damages.
