their revenue is collected for them at gun point by the IRS.
Really? I'm sorry, but when was the last time any IRS official pulled a gun on someone and told them to hand over their money.
Oh, I see. You mean like Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, AIG and a whole host of other private companies who told the American taxpayers they will
hand over their money so the people who nearly brought down the country's financial institution can still get their bonuses.
Maybe the Federal government is different, but I know for a fact people in state government fired all the time for not doing their job. The only thing it takes is for their non-work to be documented. Once that happens, there is nothing any Union can say about their firing.
But please, continue your rant of how evil government is. After all, the benevolence of the private sector is so well known we sing their praises every day because they never, EVER
take advantage of people or stick it to us in their quest for profits
