Star Trek and Gilligans Island. Thanks for reaffirming what a waste the IRS has become. It should be shut down and either a flat tax or a national sales tax or both should be put in place. The so called progressive tax system has become an ineffective farce.

It's the price we pay for continuously re-electing lawyers. Lawyers who, once elected, begin to appoint their friends, usually other lawyers, to various cabinet and administrative positions.

It interesting to note that while William Shatner certainly pays taxes, he is not a U.S. citizen and cannot vote to elect representatives to change U.S. tax law.
