So is the fact that the IRS spent $60,000 of OUR dollars to fund a Star Trek parody.
This might be the most brutal fan film ever, and not just because your tax dollars funded it. But what could be nerdier than government accountants playing Star Trek?
In fairness, I imagine IRS leadership conferences are so deathly dull that they need to find a way to liven them up and keep everyone awake. But if this is what passes for excitement among accountants, I can only imagine they follow it up with a Ben Stein comedy set.
The guy who plays the captain could be a passable actor in a smaller role. The others should never speak in public again. And the IRS has apologized for spending $60,000 on this. Perspective-wise, that’s less than even one cent per taxpayer, but they could at least have made it not suck for that price.
But yeah, let me be clear… sequester… pay their fair share…
