Nobody’s going to win an Emmy for a parody of the TV show “Star Trek” filmed by Internal Revenue Service employees at an agency studio in Maryland.

Instead, the IRS got a rebuke from Congress for wasting taxpayer dollars.

The agency says the video, along with a training video that parodied the TV show “Gilligan’s Island,” cost about $60,000. The “Star Trek” video accounted for most of the money, the agency said.

    Demonstrative of why we need smaller government.

      To some… it seems that anything is “demonstrative that we need a smaller government”… to me, over simplifying statements like that simply demonstrates to me that there are a lot of morons in this country and that unfortunately they are not embarrassed enough to keep quiet more often.

        To liberals who desire the most basic black and white topics expressed in 1,000 shades of gray so they can feed their ego of wanting others to believe that they are highly intelligent due splitting of hairs, then I suppose so.

        Not so for intellectuals who can keep things succinct and recognize the comment is with respect to wasteful government spending and that larger governments only compound the problem.

        That all said, your apparent lack of embarrassment is duly noted.
