"The preservation of a free government requires, not
merely that the metes and bounds which separate
each department of power be invariably maintained, but
more especially that neither of them be suffered to
overleap the great barrier which defends the rights
of the people. The rulers who are guilty of such
encroachment exceed the commission from which they derive
their authority, and are TYRANTS. The people who
submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves
nor by an authority derived from them and are slaves….."

Today's Red-Alert Crisis Is Brought To You By...
...the same folks who have been
yanking the same football away for decades,
and laughing at your endless susceptibility
to their scams all the way to the bank and
to their high offices.
A LOT OF FOLKS ARE FEELING
BROWBEATEN and confused right now. These
dazed voices are
going quiet about the conduct of November's
vote-counting due to the story management
of Wednesday's events in Washington by Democrats and
Establishment Republicans, and their MSM
I wonder if these subdued
folks are remembering something really
important: Those acting so outraged about
that brief and very conveniently-timed
eruption of weirdness-- by a handful of
persons acting completely out of character
with the vast majority of the huge crowd on
hand and which halted the consideration by
Congress of the fraud evidence presentation
by members challenging the election-- are
the same ones who have been chanting "there is no evidence
of fraud" for the last couple of
months (in the face of a massive body of
evidence of all possible kinds as detailed
Have people thought about the
fact that the "there is no
evidence"/"insurrection in Washington"
monotone chorus is the very same chorus that
chanted the "JFK killed by lone nutcase
Oswald" story (and with a magic bullet
involved!), and that the United States was
winning in Vietnam (until Daniel Ellsberg
dropped a dime on that lie)?
Is everyone remembering that
today's "no fraud/insurrection" monotone
the same propaganda coalition that told us
the Iranian hostage-taking was just because
those folks are primitive-religion nutcases?
Leaving out the facts that the CIA had overthrown their
elected government in 1953 and subjected
them to the brutal tyranny of the Shah for
25 years, and US embassies are
universally-known to be the headquarters of
the local CIA "mission"?
I wonder if folks are
reflecting on the fact that the "no
fraud/insurrection" chorus is the same one that told us day-care centers
around the country were nests of Satanism
and child abuse? That the Branch Davidians
set themselves on fire? That Saddam Hussein
had WMDs and was involved in the 9/11
events? (Oh, and had sent those anthrax
FURTHER, AND MOST
SIGNIFICANTLY, I wonder if those of you
subdued by the pushback are conscious of the
fact that those flogging the "no fraud" and
"insurrection" storylines are the same ones
who have been incessantly
flashing the "red alert" seizure-strobe
about "COVID-19" (C19) for the last 12
You know the one I mean. The
"disease" whose mortality characteristics
conveniently happen to virtually match--
one-for-one-- the normal mortality of
Have you thought about that
amazing coincidence? Rather than otherwise healthy
people in their 30s being taken by this
purported plague, which would be
unmistakable evidence of the plague we are
told this is, C19 takes only those already
about to die from other (often very
similarly-symptomed) causes at more or
less the same time as they supposedly
succumb to the dire virus? (Hmmm... Should
we start calling it the dirus? But I
SIMILARLY, HAVE YOU CONSIDERED how convenient it is
that the test widely used to supposedly
detect infections (the RT PCR test) is a
test that can't actually diagnose infections?
Plus, even as regards fragment detection,
the RT-PCR test is
routinely overcycled to produce false
All together, the curious
selection of RT-PCR as the go-to C19 "test"
has the convenient effect of
suggesting widespread infection when no
visible evidence (symptoms) can actually be seen
AND THEN THERE'S THIS: Along with all the
foregoing odd and eyebrow-raising factors,
thought should be given to the strange fact
that at least two well-established,
cheap and simple cures exist for whatever is
being called C19 (Hydroxychloroquine and
Ivermectin). But the folks flogging the
"plague" narrative (along with the
"no fraud/insurrection" threads, now, too) have persistently
bad-mouthed and suppressed related
The monotone chorus acts as though such cures represent
some kind of threat to their program. That
seemed to involve establishing a pretext for
drastic weakening of election-validity
insurance mechanisms-- like voter
verification and effective oversight of
counting procedures-- until enough chaff was
in the air to begin making the claim that
Biden had won. Certainly these things
were accomplished and solely thanks to
the "C19 is an uncureable plague"
Now that program seems to involve selling a huge number of
vaccine doses to governments and thereby
enriching a few folks responsible in large
part for the "pandemic" pitch, while keeping
alive a "justification" defense for all
those Democrat governors who wreaked such
havoc on their state populations and
On the subject of those
"vaccines", it's curious that they don't consist of weakened versions
of the disease against which they supposedly
inoculate, unlike all other vaccines in
history. This suggests some problem coming up with an
actual isolated C19 virus from which to
produce normal vaccines (or some agenda
other than inoculation against C19, or both).
Here's one final observation:
Why is it that the state governments (and
the MSM) must resort to sneakiness in
announcements of C19 fatalities?
I mean things like declaring
false "deaths from COVID" numbers, and
counting old deaths
to be C19 fatalities from examination of
old records-- which happens long after any legitimate assessment of the
condition of the patient prior to death can
be given from personal
knowledge, and in contradiction of the
contemporaneous conclusions of those who had
personal knowledge and which appeared on the death
See, for instance, this false
headline from the Detroit News on Friday,
"13,000 deaths from COVID-19"!
Well, not really, as is admitted in the
So, that's actually 13,000
deaths LINKED to the coronavirus, not FROM
the coronavirus, and "linked" just means
somebody said coronavirus may have played a
part, or even just that they suspected
it may have played a part,
per the CDC/NVSS instructions on reporting.
And, as discussed above, the vast
majority of the latest cases supposedly
bringing Michigan up to that scary "13,000"
watermark are, like many, many others since
last spring, were "identified during a
delayed records review"...
Taking all these observations
into account, I have to say that if someone ever had need of a
plague-scare, the existence and prevalence of
which people had to just believe based on
their pronouncements, this is how they would
It's like a dark version of The
Emperor's New Clothes, in which we are the
emperor, and instead of fine new clothes we
are assured by experts (of whose expertise
they also assure us) that we are under
attack. We buy into this fancy even though
we can't see our assailant or any
unambiguous sign thereof, because the
experts have assured us that the assailant
can only be detected by those with special
talents, and besides, if they're right and
we don't do as they say, WE'RE ALL GOING TO
So we play along, nodding and
uh-huhing and masking up, and surrendering
to the experts our sovereignty and our
prosperity, and turning into Théoden
of Rohan when firmly in the grip of Saruman--
hunkered down in a darkened, closed-up hall,
paranoid, weak and despairing.
In the end (if there is to be a
happy-ish ending) the little boy lacking the
infirmity of social caution pipes up and
points out that nothing is actually
different from any other year (or Gandalf
punches this home with his staff...). There
is no plague ravaging the land--
just the usual number of deaths in the usual
demographics and reflecting the usual
increase over previous years (fortified a
bit by the fact that the first wave of the
enormous Baby-Boom cohort has recently
entered its 70s). (To see the other
way The Emperor's New Clothes is played-out
in modern America, and some associated
SO, HERE'S THE POINT of all the
foregoing: The "there is no evidence of
fraud/insurrection" browbeating drumbeat by
which folks who recognize that there IS
evidence of fraud are now feeling subdued
and oppressed is just the latest hymn being
sung off the same page by the same chorus
with a long, ugly history of serial fraud,
deception and propaganda, Having been caught
in lies before, nothing this chorus chants
should be seen as anything but another
effort to deceive, and the chanting should
just energize their opponents.
At the same time, it's really
vital for those outraged about the
manifest election fraud to recognize that the
C19 storyline is another product from the
same mendacious crowd, which should be
denounced in equal measure. Otherwise the C19 fraud, which appears to
have been trotted out in the first place as
a destabilization ploy and then exploited to
gimmick the election, stands as a
factor insulating the election fraudsters
from skeptical analysis by even the
non-rabidly-partisan members of their own
nominal base, many of which have seen the
election issue as between the guy who will
take the C19 threat seriously and protect
them, and the guy who won't.

liars and nothing they say should be

BTW, I have to make clear that
from my perspective, none of this has
anything whatever to do with Donald Trump,
or wanting him to have a second term. Trump
is a buffoon and an incompetent, and
frankly, seems more an Israeli asset than a
real "American firster". I have listed some
of my complaints with Trump
But he won the election. Theft

P.S. A COUPLE OF FURTHER
THOUGHTS TO SHARE:
Regarding the C19 fraud: Some folks have trouble
imagining that lots of healthcare providers
could all be taken in and sing along with
the "every death is a C19 death" thing. But
they forget that the storyline included
symptoms that mimicked flu and pneumonia
(and others that changed constantly) and
they were amped-up into a state of tension
with endless dire forewarning of disaster
ahead, and were being fed the fuzzy
storyline by what they had always viewed as
the highest possible authorities on such
Regarding the "there is no
evidence [of election fraud]" thing, which
is mendaciously supported with references to
the outcomes of a number of lawsuits: The fraud is and was so obvious
that dozens of people-- including a few
experienced lawyers and many who knew
nothing about what they were doing-- slapped
Unfortunately, most of these
suits were invalid due to "standing" issues or other technical flaws (and often
with hastily-- and therefore, sloppily--
assembled evidence), and were
steadily dismissed by courts on those
technical grounds. Ultimately, this record had a severe
dampening effect on even the better-prepared
The dismissals of the
poorly-prepared suits were falsely spun
by the monolith to be defeats on the merits,
even though no court involved had ever
even looked at the evidence. Once enough
dismissals had happened, and the spin
machine had done its work, judges presented
with even the better-prepared suits couldn't
bring themselves to treat them with any
respect, that being by then too much a
bucking of the tide for their stomachs.

propagandists and narrative-managers-- the conclusory portion of which is
oriented a bit toward "income tax" issues
but which applies just as well to any other
attempt by "officialdom" to bs their way
into advantage over the rest of us.)
P.P.S. THE LATEST ENTHUSIASM
OF THE STATIST COMMUNITY is denunciation and suppression of
"domestic terrorism". This is not a new
chew-toy. I wrote about the precursor push
down this road to Hell
here, and I recommend the article to
THIS VIDEO PROJECTS THE PROGRESS of a nuclear exchange between Russia and
the United States. It's frightening, as it should
be, as well as sobering and instructive. My only
criticisms are, first of all, that it fails to
account for the imbalance that will now be present
in any such exchange due to
the new Russian
Secondly, the video fails to account
for China's contribution to the exchange against the
US, which is a virtual certainty. China knows that
if Russia goes, and the US survives, it goes soon
after. So, that will not be allowed to happen.
CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE how abysmally
stupid someone would have to be to continue to doubt
or deny that
CtC has revealed the actual, complete and insurmountable
truth about the income tax in light of the overwhelming
logical evidence to the contrary? (Not to mention
outright lies and even
ludicrous hoaxes the executive and some corrupt
members of the judiciary have been caught at in desperate
efforts to conceal the truth...)
Plainly any such denier must either be
abysmally stupid or be an abysmally corrupt government
official or other person who sees him or herself as
benefitting from the lies about the tax by which America
has suffered for 75 years now.

Covid Is An Orchestration Serving An Agenda-- The
Destruction Of Freedom
by Paul Craig Roberts
The accumulated evidence is
overwhelming that Covid is an orchestration the
purpose of which is to eliminate human autonomy and
make the concept of freedom a dirty word that will
bring you Covid illness and death.
currency is one necessity for human
autonomy, globalists are working on its
replacement with digital money. Paper
currency, coins, money orders, and checks
pass hand to hand and allegedly carry
possible infection with Covid. In contrast,
digital money is virtual. No one touches
it. More importantly for the globalists, It
cannot be drawn out of an account in
physical form and horded or hidden. You
cannot make anonymous payments with digital
money. Privacy leaves your life. You become
Some hope that
people will have their own private digital
money in the form of crytocurrencies.
However, transfers can be prevented between
an official digital monetary system and
private crytocurrencies. Moreover, private
cryptocurrency payment of rents, mortgages,
car loans, grocery store bills, and so forth
can be banned and enforced. A private
cryptocurrency economy would have to operate
outside of the official digital money
economy. As the purpose of digital money is
to eliminate human autonomy, such a parallel
economy would be suppressed.
The same goes for
payments with gold and silver coins. You
could pay for a private service or for
privately grown food from gardens if gardens
are permitted in a world of artificial food
made in factories, which is what the World
Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” encompasses.
But you couldn’t purchase a house or car or
airline ticket with gold or silver.
People welcomed the
digital revolution without recognizing its
totalitarian consequences. They love their
smart phones, the Internet, video games,
social media, online payments, the ability
to work from home. Perhaps many are
agreeable to giving up independence and
autonomy for these conveniences. Even if
they are not, they are likely to find
themselves trapped inside such a system
before they become aware of its
The change that
elites are bringing to us is so radical that
people dismiss it. But their smart devices
have already ensnared them into the change.
The future that is
unfolding is a restoration of ancient times

happening to truth-tellers. Manning,
If people want to
be free, they are going to have to eliminate
the globalists and dispossess the

pointless to peacefully protest, because as
the stolen US presidential election makes
completely clear, the elites have no regard
whatsoever for democracy and the people’s
voice. They hate the concept of government

government is one accountable to the elites,
just as ancient governments were accountable
to priests, Druids, and pharaohs. It seems
clear enough that this is the direction in
which the Western World is headed. World

ROBERTS IS A LITTLE CHOPPY in the
writing of this jeremiad (notable because he is
usually more polished), but this can be forgiven, I
think. What he says is essentially true in all its
disturbing specifics and implications.
It is possible that this evil
purpose did not animate the initial "C19
threat" story. That may have actually been a
normal bit of overblown 24/7 newscycle
grist, the way every upcoming snowstorm is
made to sound like the blizzard of the
century for as long as that eyeball-draw can
be milked. But at minimum, once someone
noticed how successfully the first spin was
scaring and mesmerizing the public, the
utility of the thing was recognized and the
assault was underway.

TAKE OFF THE CHIN DIAPERS. GET ANGRY WITH
ANYONE FLOGGING THE BS.
If those who love liberty climb
to their hind feet NOW, and throw off this
"COVID-19" delusion, and this sleepwalking
acquiescence to all the blandishments and
bullshit of its purveyors, America can
regain at least some degree of its proper
footing. Otherwise, we just sink deeper into
the clinging and ultimately smothering mire.
Every day that we abide the
infringements and leave un-denounced and
un-refused the complete fraud which is the
C19 narrative, our children grow more
acclimated to "the new normal" and more
forgetting of actual liberty and rule of
law-- and frankly the adults do, too. Even
those who chafe at the recognized outrage of
it all become acclimated and pacified as
time goes on.
Get up and start roaring
now, while you can still raise your
voice above a whisper (or a whimper).
AT THE SAME TIME THAT YOU ROAR
against the C19, don't neglect the overall
solution to the abuse of state power against
your liberties, no matter its ambitions or
pretexts. That just requires
behaving like a grown-up and using the
Leviathan-shrinking solution put in place
by America's Founders in anticipation of
just the sort of corruption that reigns
Implemented on a sufficient
scale, that solution shrinks the state and renders
those in control of the gnarly thing incapable of
doing great harm, regardless of the
weaknesses of the political class.
I HAVE DONE MY BEST to lead this country
to liberty from the mis-applied income tax. I have labored

When I have asked all of you for what I
firmly believe is a necessary resource to move the ball
downfield and give all of us the best chance at justice
and an end to the assault on the rule of law-- simple

from the heart-- I have had only a handful of people

I'll tell you a story from when I was coaching
my kids in soccer. Both of my kids at a certain age
in their careers had run into a wall common to all but
the very exceptional. They had gotten to be pretty good,
and they wanted to enjoy the benefits of their hard
work. But the arrival of this interest coincided with
a new self-consciousness which made them reluctant to
risk failing and looking foolish. So, they were hanging
back from seizing the main chance when it appeared,
and driving for the goal.
My solution was to post on the wall of
our dining room a couple of simple points about self-discipline,
the chief of which is this: You can't score a goal if
you don't take a shot.
That's how it is here, too. If you don't
stand up, you are laying down, and you'll never score
Here is what my kids live by now, in their
own version of that lesson. I hear it from them all
the time as they excel (accompanied by the sound of
a father's breast swelling with pride): Go hard,
or go home.
You, too. Go hard, or go home.
Send those videos.
Do I ask for a lot? I want your victories
to post, your financial support, your efforts at spreading
the word, and your beautiful faces and inspiring words,
too. It IS a lot.
But it's not too much. I'll let Thomas Paine explain:
"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered;
yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder
the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we
obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly. Heaven knows
how to put a proper price on its goods; and it would
be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as freedom
should not be highly rated.”
We each have our reasons, and our story.

longer to really say your piece, go for it (but long
or short I may edit if something strikes me as
wandering or off-key or unacceptable).
You needn't feel any obligation to be profound,
and you shouldn't try to explain anything about the
law, other than to say that you have read it and you
know it's on your side. You just need to be sincere,
and uplifting. Your object is to make your audience
want to have what you have, and to be where you are
in your heart.
Don't talk to ME, or to others in the
CtC-educated community. Make remarks that are suited
to the NON-CtC-educated community, and at the same
time, be mindful that you're speaking to an
audience that doesn't yet know ANYTHING about the subject,
and whose first reaction is, "This must be illegal;
this must be dangerous; this is too good to be true."
You want to pull that audience right past such things,
and straight to a focus on truth, morality, and our
American heritage of liberty and the rule of law.
Remember: INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE, ENERGIZE.
Speak about rights. Speak about morality,
and the obligation of a grown-up and responsible person
to speak the truth and to enforce the Constitution.
Speak about everyone's duty
to give to God what is God's, always, and to Caesar
only what is really Caesar's. Speak of your obligation
to respect yourself, and to look out for the current
and future well-being of your children and your fellow
citizens. Speak of
CtC, and what its information has done for your
understanding and resolve. Show the book.
If you have had victories, describe them.
Better still, show them, if possible.
Be clear about just what you accomplished:
EVERYTHING back-- Social Security, Medicare and all;
a "notice of deficiency" closing notice; an on-paper
agreement or acknowledgment that your earnings weren't
subject to the tax and everything withheld or paid-in
was an "overpayment"; a transcript showing all $0s;
or whatever happened.
When you speak of state victories, name
the state. If you had to overcome balkiness from a tax
agency before winning any victory, describe that, too!
If you're in a battle now, speak of your
resolve to uphold the law, come what may--

standing down, not slinking back into the barn, and
not choosing to endorse the lies. Don't get
into details-- your audience is going to have no
idea what a "LTR3176" is, and you will NOT be
capable of explaining it adequately. This is an
subject area concerning which you should speak from
the heart, not the head.
If you haven't
yet begun to act, share the reasons for your decision to do so, and
Remember, your purpose is to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE
Watch your own video after you
record it and ask yourself: Putting yourself
in the place of someone completely immersed
in "the matrix"-- oblivious to any notions
that you might have been a victim of an
"ignorance tax", and comfortable with the
status quo-- would the video you just made
encourage you to push aside your comforting
illusions and learn the liberating truth? If
not, try again.
Identify yourself. Anonymity is for criminals and self-doubters, not
warriors. Naming yourself is a requirement, and your
name will appear as a subtitle on the video when I
prepare it for posting, in any event.
Mention what you do for a living, whether
you're a doctor, homemaker, lawyer, trucker, IT guy
or gal, retiree or student. Help people understand
that the company of grown-up activist Americans they
are being invited to join cuts across all demographics
and all interests-- with the common denominator being
respect for the law and love of the principles on which
this great country was founded.
This is your chance to get a LOT accomplished.
We've all had frustrating occasions of
trying to explain all this to a friend, neighbor, family
member or co-worker, only to pile up against the wall
of a mind not yet ready to listen and learn. Here is
your chance to address a self-selected audience of folks
who have themselves decided that it's time for them
to begin paying attention, and have clicked on your
testimonial for exactly that reason.
Further, think about this: You want judges,
bureaucrats, CPAs, lawyers, the HR people where you
work, your pastors, your neighbors and everyone else
to acknowledge the truth about the tax openly and straightforwardly.
How and why would these folks do this if YOU won't?
You want these folks to learn the truth.
Why would they even recognize that there is a truth
to be learned if you won't attest to having learned
it yourself? You've got to stand up, face forward and
chin up and tell these folks that you have studied and
checked and verified and seen the evidence and seen
the government evasions and you know that the tax is
not the capitation that the beneficiary government wants
everyone to think it is but a benign, strictly limited
thing, and that they need to study and learn that, too.
Again, if you have victories to show, that's
nice, and powerful, too. But you don't have to have
victories to display in order to declare your knowledge
of what the law says. I've never flown around the world,
but I've seen the evidence and considered the arguments,
and I'm not hesitant to declare it a sphere...
Even those of you who haven't yet studied
CtC have surely read
this short document, and have verified everything
in it for yourself. You should therefore be declaring
its veracity and its message, loud and proud. Again,
if you won't say it, how can you hope that others will
ever even bother to look at the facts?
Be the change you want to see in the world,
or there won't be any change.

Getting Free Of The "Income" Tax Scheme Is As Easy As
Falling Off A Bike
To get an idea of how today's "income" tax scheme works,
try this little exercise:
Think of the federal government as a guy named Bob,
who lives down the street from you in a town that is
really big on bicycles. Bikes get used for commuting,
deliveries, shopping, etc.. In fact, other than walking,
bicycles are the exclusive form of transportation in
Your neighbor Bob has a by-the-mile bicycle-renting
business-- "Bob's Bicycles". Bob's Bicycles is far and
away the biggest business in town.
Part of Bob’s success is because he does a lot of contract
business. However, Bob doesn't just get paid by riders
who have signed an agreement with him, or even just
those using Bob's bikes. Bob gets something every time
anybody in town does any riding at all, through an odd
combination of circumstances that took many years to
Here's how it happened...
Bob's Bicycles was launched long ago by the great grandfather
of the present Bob (Bob IV). Great Grandpa Bob started
out not only with a main location for his contract business--
he also had the bright idea of setting up spots around
town where he parked some of his bikes for use by the
more occasional rider, on an "honor system". Anyone
could take and use one of these bikes, but they were
expected to keep track of their mileage, and send Bob
a "1040 Mileage Ridden/Rent Due Form" (and the appropriate
rent), periodically. The initial design of the form
was like this:
rode a Bob's Bicycle a total of _____ miles
At Bob's rental
rate of $.15 per mile, I owe Bob $______
I said that Great Grandpa Bob planned to deal with these
occasional riders on the "honor system", and that's
true. But he liked his money, too, and didn't want to
miss anything that was due him. So, after setting up
the "self-serve" locations, Great Grandpa Bob went around
handing out "W-2, 1099 or K-1 Rider Reporting Forms"
to every other business in town. The forms-- accompanied
by notices that if Bob didn't get his rent from someone
riding a bicycle in connection with any business, he
would sue the company involved-- said:
You Can’t Fight Well When You Don’t Know
What You’re Fighting About
If you are having an argument
with the IRS or any other tax agency,
You are NOT being presumed to have made “corporate
You are NOT being alleged to have received “foreign
You are NOT entangled in an invisible “adhesion
You are NOT being obligated by a law whose subject
is never identified.
You are being targeted because REAL EVIDENCE exists
that YOU PERSONALLY HAD “INCOME” to which the revenue laws apply--
even though that evidence is almost certainly incorrect,
and CAN be corrected.

YOU Decide To "Let Someone Else Do It"?

Doing A Little High-Payoff Math
IF EACH PERSON receiving this newsletter each week distributed as
few as 100 of any of
the great outreach tools featured here to co-workers, friends,
neighbors and family members (or just strangers on the street, in
the mall, etc...), we could have SEVERAL MILLION new Americans
suddenly introduced to the liberating truth about the tax!
Just like that! In one week!
C'mon, people, let's roll on this!
“Most of the important things in the
world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when
there seemed to be no hope at all.”
When directed to a page by topic or link, read everything.
I know that this can mean the investment of a lot of time, attention
and effort, but although some may imagine otherwise, I don't write
as much as I do because I can't think of any other way to spend
Furthermore, when you encounter a hyperlink within, or associated
with, the text you are reading, follow it!
It is pretty common these days for web-based material to be littered
with hyperlinks. Sometimes the purpose is to provide definitions
or examples, in order to ensure that folks reading the original
material aren't presented with a word or reference which they don't
understand. Sometimes the links lead to illustrations pertinent
to the original text.
It is common-- and perfectly understandable-- for folks who are
confident that they are familiar with language or references within
the main text they are reading to get in the habit of skipping over
included links. I do it all the time, myself!
However, I very rarely include links for definitional or explanatory
purposes; and when I DO make a link out of text in one page it is
generally to another self-contained page, rather than merely illustrative
material. These other pages contain material the clear understanding
of which I deem highly important for the proper and complete understanding
of the original page. (Links to
CtC Warriors and so on are obvious exceptions to this general
rule. On the other hand, a link to the victory
Highlights or 'Every
Which Way But Loose' pages, which might seem like such exceptions,
are not. The special selection of victories on those pages, and
the filed docs and tax-agency correspondences included therewith,
themselves constitute highly instructive material which merits careful
attention. Thus care needs to be taken in all cases.)
Please make a habit of clicking on all provided links and at least
looking briefly to ensure that the linked page is one with which
you are completely familiar from another study session.
Finally, please keep in mind that, annoying though it may seem at
first blush (but not, I trust, upon reflection), I constantly tweak
material already posted. Obviously this doesn't mean that every
page is in flux at all times, but it does mean that if you are directed
to a page that IS familiar, it's worthwhile to read it through again
if it's been a while since your last having done so.

It never did and it never will. Find out just what any
