This administration has an affinity for magic.  Not because they enjoy pulling a rabbit out of the hat but because they use the power of deception.

There are so many problems with this bunch that I can only hope that people that are on the other side are smarter than I.

Every time they want to pull off something, they do something to take your eye off the ball.  Today we learned that Millions of documents have been found linking Bin Laden to Iran.

We also learned that the IRS mess had criminal activity going on and there is documentation to prove it.

Netanyahu has legitimacy in coming here as our alley to make his case not to negotiate with terrorist or a terrorist sponsoring state like Iran.  I find it incomprehensible and frankly malevolent that the Democrats are injecting so much politics into this when we should be there for BiBi!

I am ashamed of the lot of them.

Pelosi and the other “elected sub humans” are drunk on their own importance.

You don’t negotiate with terrorist!  It is that simple!

So we now know who the famous be-header is Jihadi John! Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti-born Londoner.

Mohammed Emwazi, Killer of this Guy, Foley and others….

Jhidi John is a rapper…  I wonder if he is on iTunes?

All of this information released today, why?  With all of the distractions today keeping the media busy and the few Americans who care, what are they up to?  Is it golf?  I suspect something entirely different but with the media satisfied to have something juicy to talk about, they will be too busy to pay attention to his majesty and his cronies.

Every time some news story breaks it seems these people are doing something behind the scenes.  Oh yes, we also have the government and Pelosi allowing the government shutdown until he gets everything that he wants in the way of funding, for his illegal actions on immigration!

Since there is no Football games, and not much going on with any other sports to take our eyes off the ball; we have to throw someone under the bus!  Mrs. Lerner and some poor slobs at the IRS are probably going to have to fall on their proverbial swords to make this happen.

Maybe the inclement weather will be a good distraction but it kind of blows Global warming out of the picture, doesn’t it?

I don’t know if they have all done this but it seems to me that this administration has been more transparent about its philandering’s than any before it. IS that what he meant about being “transparent?”  If so he told the truth about something!

Rosen, 44, was arrested “following a series of online exchanges” with a detective assigned to the Fairfax County Police Department’s Child Exploitation Unit, Caldwell said. He was charged with one count of using of a communications device to solicit a juvenile, Caldwell said. Court paperwork in Washington said he was wanted for “obscene communication.”

How long did they know about this guy?

Watch the other hand folks!  If they are telling us this, or leaking it, there is a reason.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Bulletin: #Lois Lerner’s #Email has been lost!

Bulletin: Lois Lerner’s Email has been lost!

As an IT expert I have to say, “REALLY!”  “How stupid do you think the American people are?”  I realize that is a rhetorical question because obviously there are either some awfully stupid people or awfully gullible people or even awfully greedy people who vote; but this is over the top!

 

There are federal laws that govern how e-mail is to be stored and for federal agencies, it is not on the desktop.

 

As a disaster recover expert again “do you really expect us to believe that the IRS does not store files in a redundant fashion either using RAID or SANS or the cloud…

 

Let’s examine the issues here.

 

Firstly as a publically traded company (which the IRS is not, but they are aware of the standards 😉 you are required to keep all e-mails under SOX.  For that purpose you would use something called e-mail journaling which keeps a copy of the e-mail in a separate area that cannot be deleted.  One would think that a federal agency would at least be required to do that.

 

Secondly, there is FISMA (Federal information security management act of 2002.)  According to FISMA, the term information security means protecting information and information systems from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction in order to provide integrity, confidentiality and availability.  This is the FREAKING IRS, do they really expect us to swallow that her e-mails were only stored on her local computer?

 

Thirdly; there are multiple types of redundant technology available and I would have to guess that the IRS takes advantage of Either NAS, OR SANS or the cloud and of course Tape Backup, just in case.  NAS (network attached storage) or SAN (storage area network) allow data from the “email store” to be stored on multiple drives in something known as a RAID configuration meaning, if a drive fails the data is stored on multiple different drives so there is no data loss. With VMWare they can have multiple servers with multiple copies of the data so the e-mail system is incredibly robust.  They have access to all the money in the world; do they really expect us to believe that all of her e-mail was on a laptop?

 

There is also FIPS200 which is part of FISMA…  FIPS 199 (Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 199, Standards for Security Categorization of Federal Information and Information Systems) is a United States Federal Government standard that establishes security categories of information systems used by the Federal Government, one component of risk assessment. FIPS 199, along with FIPS 200, are mandatory security standards as required by FISMA.

FIPS 199 requires Federal agencies to assess their information systems in each of the categories of confidentiality, integrity and availability, rating each system as low, moderate or high impact in each category. The most severe rating from any category becomes the information system’s overall security categorization.

 

 

Just for grins and giggles let’s assume that the IRS is really that deficit of IT talent.  There is forensic software out there that can get e-mails and other data off of purposefully deleted drives or crashed drives.  Often time’s data that has been removed via formatting the drive can sometimes be recovered.  If the NSA wanted it; they could get it!

My final thought on this; the IRS is supposed to manage Universal Healthcare.  All of your personal information will be out there at their disposal; umpteen millions of us will be out there.  Is she going to keep it on her laptop?

This “excuse” is an affront to anyone with a brain; much less anyone with any IT knowledge.

Taxes and SEX?

It never ceases to amaze me at the absolute euphoria people exude, when they get their check from the IRS.  Everything from a down payment on a new car or furniture or other household trappings are purchased.  It maybe money spent towards a vacation, or maybe to pay off some credit card bill that you have had to carry a balance on.  They seem to have forgotten that this was their money to begin with and that they are getting a small part of it back!

The parasites are also out to capitalize on your “good fortune” as well.  Tax preparation services who only charge a “small percentage” to get you the most back from the “evil” IRS.  Then there are the check cashing folks who only charge a “small percentage” to cash your government issued check.  While there, the tellers will try and sell you lottery tickets instead of allowing you to take your money and run.  There are businesses’ that will cash your check at their store, in hopes that you will buy stuff at their store.  My favorite however this year is the “bunny ranch”

Dennis Hof who owns and runs a “legal brothel” in Nevada will cash your government issued checks by trading it for “bunny bucks.” He gives you two bunny bucks for one government dollar (so the story goes) which in today’s economy isn’t a bad trade except of course, the only place to spend bunny bucks is well on “professional services” at his brothel.  www.bunnyranch.com

I personally would like (one) bunny buck, just to hang up next to my million dollar “fake bill” as that is what it is worth outside of the ranch.  My hats off to his “entrepreneurial spirit.”

If your employer just gave you the money you earned, and then let you settle your taxes every two weeks with the different agencies both state and federal, we might hear a little louder scream from those who think that the government is currently doing a good job.  The simple facts are that you never see it, everything happens behind the scenes through the payroll department.  Unless you work in that department, you really have no clue how much of your weekly pay is going to someone else.  They are simply numbers on a stub.  Much like the “Paper or Plastic” article, that I wrote earlier, what you don’t handle you don’t really miss.  It doesn’t make that much of an impact!

Consultants often do work that way.  They are giving something called a 1099 which reports to the IRS that you were paid X amount of money and by April 15th they have to come up with everything that is normally taken out of others paychecks and then some as there is the “self employment tax.”  I would guess that those folks have a very keen understanding and appreciation of our “tax code.”

If you really want a wake up call, something to stir you inner emotions about the current tax code, do this.  Add up all of the taxes and things taken out of your check everyweek.  Next time you are at the bank, withdraw that amount, whatever it is and take it home and look at it.  Count it a few times.  Understand exactly how much you are giving away to “who knows where.” Now multiply that pile of money by 52 if you are a weekly employee and imagine what that pile of money would look like then!

Puts a little different spin on that windfall now doesn’t it.  The simple facts are that revising the tax code is long over due.  If you really want your head to explode start looking at how the government is spending your money.  Really pay attention to where it is going and for what. Protracted wars fighting for people who hate Americans.  Green power companies that go bankrupt after using all of the taxpayers money up. Million dollar golf outings to play with Tiger Woods.  Sending tanks and aircraft to Egypt, to the Muslim Brotherhood.  Who made that deal?

I could be wrong but I think his Ivory tower is so tall, that he really has lost sight of those that he is supposed to be working for. Maybe it is the thin air up there as I remember he had issues with that in Colorado during the 1rst debate.

According to the CCH Standard Tax Reporter, the U.S. tax code began with about 400 pages in 1913. Twenty-six years later there were still only 504 pages, but then it exploded to 8,200 pages by 1945.  This blossom of growth was caused in part by finding ways to fund WWII.

It got to over 60,000 pages before the end of the first term of President George W. Bush, and it has now reached over 72,500 pages by the end of the third year of President Barack Obama’s current term of office.  Politicians and bureaucrats are consistently adding or modifying this document, making it the monster that it is.

Does this seem like it is getting simpler to you?

In speaking with accountants who know this stuff they are left scratching their heads and searching through new books and guidelines to figure out the correct answer.  The only people who can afford to do their own taxes are the people who don’t own a home, possibly rent and have no real property.  Folks, we are going the wrong way with laws and taxes.

Every candidate running for office always talks about making it easier, flat tax and so forth and now you can see; that was never the plan.  Today we learned that we will be printing $40 Billion a month with no end date.  That works out to $1.1 Trillion a year!  Feel your money shrinking yet? Wait till bread is $100 a loaf; then maybe the rest of the people will get the message.
