The Epic Twitter Thread that Reminds You Just How Bad Government Fails... at EVERY. THING.
With all the talk of Joe Biden passing a new policy to allow the IRS to track every penny of your bank account at all times in the news, a Twitter user took to his account to remind each and every one of us just how bad the government is at everything it tries to do. Every. Single. Thing.
A user going by the handle “Dr Strangetweet” posted his epic take down of government failures on Thursday, starting with this tweet:
You probably think the IRS monitoring any account over $600 is about tax cheats.
We are not the same.

Here is the who thread in straight text so you don’t have to contend with Twitter’s graphics:
- You probably think the IRS monitoring any account over $600 is about tax cheats.
- We are not the same. But I do have to ask…
- How can you look at all of this *waves hand at the state of the country* and still trust government?
- This isn’t a Republican v Democrat thing. It’s not even Right vs Left.
- It’s “look with your own eyes at how bad government is at EVERYTHING”. The one thing the government used to be good at is war.
- After Afghanistan, it sucks at that too. I get if you’re scared about COVID. Fine.
- Buuuut why on God’s green earth are you outsourcing your trust to the people who lie to your face every day?
- You want to trust the experts? Okay. But look at the experts.
- THEY’RE IN BED WITH THE GOVERNMENT.
- When every recommendation is “more government control, less personal freedom”, at some point you gotta realize the game is rigged.
- It’s not a coincidence that the best “health” policies are “the government needs to monitor your every movement.”
- Come on, man. Think!
- I know I know. When Trump didn’t want to be investigated, the rally cry was “if you didn’t do anything wrong, why not welcome the investigation?”
- ‘ll tell you why:
- The government will make shit up to put you away if they think it will benefit them. The FBI was in on Jan 6. It’s a fact at this point.
- The FBI set up Randy Weaver.
- Cops drop guns and drugs on scenes to justify shootings. DAs hide or fabricate evidence.
- Judges like being known for being tough on crime.
- Look up “civil forfeiture” and tell me the US government won’t just zoink money from your account because they’re not sure why you have so much.
- Do you really think you stand a chance in court against the feds trying to get your money back?
- LOL I have a beachside condo in Phoenix I’ll sell you cheap.
- Hey, remember when the IRS targeted groups in 2012 then destroyed phones and computers to cover up the evidence?
- You really think they won’t target you? This isn’t Right or Left.
- This is 4th Amendment. This is being secure in your persons against warrantless searches.
The IRS should have to get a warrant to access your bank account.
- This will enable them to just do it.
- Stop thinking the government loves you. You’re nothing more than kibble for its insatiable appetite for power.
Exactly right, folks. Government does nothing at all well. Ever. Don’t ever forget it.
