Fighting Taxes

Posted by taxguru on August 22, 2003

Readers may have noticed that, unlike most tax professionals, who just accept taxation as a given out of the control of mere mortals, I have always considered taxes to be the symptoms of out of control spending by power hungry government rulers. Rather than just advise everyone to simply accept the fact that they must bend over, grab their ankles, and allow our rulers to have their way with us (as most tax professionals do), I champion efforts to legally fight back against excessive taxation of all kinds.

It is encouraging to see that not everyone is a sheep allowing themselves to be led peacefully to slaughter. Spreading the word about legal resistance to undue taxation should hopefully encourage others that the cause is not futile. Working within the system to effect such changes is what I support. I do not condone the illegal actions of tax protestor scam artists, such as Irwin Schiff.

Opponents pledge fight to cancel Oregon tax package

New Zealand Farmers hit the street in fight against fart tax – I would have loved to hear Arnold, in his recitation of all the taxes we have to pay each day, include paying a tax each time our animals fart.

Multicolored greenbacks coming in October – It’s hard to stay ahead of the counterfeiters. Doesn’t it seem like our currency is being changed more often than normal?

License bill faces challenge from IRS. It’s risky to use taxpayer ID numbers for noncitizen drivers, agency says. – Just the fact that there is a debate over what ID numbers illegal aliens should be using on their driver’s licenses shows how far into the abyss the PRC has slipped. To continue to force taxpayers to fund benefits for people who have broken our laws is just the same old insanity we all expect from the ruling class out there. The chances of any change in this open season on the wealth of the productive members of our society in order to buy votes for the DemonRats in power are slim to none.

Over the Cliff. Social Security is about to plunge, but retirement benefits don’t have to. – What a surprise. FDR’s Ponzi scheme house of cards is showing signs of weakness.

Analysts Are Skeptical of Ueberroth’s Tax Amnesty. Critics doubt the plan would produce the $6 billion that the candidate predicts, and they see difficult political hurdles. – Predicting how much money can be raised through a tax amnesty program is nothing more than a guessing game. Nothing more than a WAG (wild ass guess).

The Triumph of Leviathan – Fans of big expensive government outnumber those of us who believe in abiding by the constitutional limits that were supposed to prevent the existence of an all powerful and controlling central government.

Bloglet Service Out Of Commission

Posted by taxguru on August 22, 2003

The Bloglet service that sent nightly emails with the latest postings hasn’t been working for the past few weeks. There have been temporary outages in the past; but this time it appears to be much more serious. Scouring the web and checking with other users, it appears that nobody can reach the Bloglet administrator. Many people believe that the Bloglet site has been abandoned because none of us is able to get beyond the main page.

I have therefore removed the Bloglet sign-up function. I will be looking for another service to take over that will hopefully be more reliable. In the meantime, you can always see everything I have posted on this page right here. It always shows everything for the past 30 days on this main page. The archives have the postings going back to November 2000.
