There is no better illustration of the corrupt futility of the so-called economic stimulus program than the $92 million being spent to renovate the IRS compound in Andover, Massachusetts.
According to the ,Boston Herald the expanded IRS facility ?will include a reflecting pool, an art gallery, indoor gardens, a 7,000-square-foot cafeteria and an ampitheater.?

Jonathan Levi, the architect given the federal contract to renovate the complex, insists that the upgraded 400,000-square-foot regional headquarters will be ?a comfortable, collaborative environment. It will be welcoming for the people who use it.? Doubtless those on the receiving end of the IRS?s malign attentions won?t be consoled by the appointments and ornamental touches.

Levi insists that this shrine to the tax-devouring state ? call it the Tax Mahal ? ?will be relevant 50 years from now.? This is true in exactly the same sense that Soviet-era monuments to that evil, omnivorous state remain relevant today.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
