She opens up with a accusatory statement condemning Marc’s client to TAXPAYER status without reviewing the facts and verifying the validity of such legal status by saying; “My job as a settlement officer is to resolve tax controversies on a basis that is fair and impartial to both the government and the TAXPAYER.” For some strange reason she believes the government is based on principals of fairness and impartiality when it coercively steals every cent it spends to pay for the crimes they wish to commit under guise of a legitimate service/social necessity. Also, to what Marc was pointing out, the legal status of TAXPAYER is established using certain factual criteria. The only question that is really being asked here is what facts do you rely on that Mr. X is a TAXPAYER, do they exist? Not being able to answer such a simple and straight-forward question leaves one to think: why? The answer on the other side of that question is what “they” are so hopelessly cognitively-dissonant of.
