"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….."

HEY, PEOPLE! Please don't just read what I post here (or anywhere), and nod your head sagely or approvingly and then move on to other things. I don't post in order to affirm your sense of things. I post in order to equip you with perspectives and arguments with which to educate others, and in the expectation that you will forward my posts to other people (or direct them to those posts). PLEASE do those things.

We won't win by YOU knowing what I present. We will win by LOTS OF OTHERS knowing what I present.

There Is No Public Health Utility To The Current COVID "Vaccines"

This is really simple stuff-- just read carefully.

THE NORMAL ARGUMENT FOR public health utility in a vaccine is that the measure eliminates the hazard of Person A transmitting a pathogen to Person B. That is, the public health utility of a vaccine hinges on it having the effect of immunizing the vaccinated individual from becoming infected and spreading the disease.

The current COVID "vaccines" pushed by the Biden administration are not even purported to have the requisite property of conferring immunity-- and they do not. All that is (itself dubiously) claimed of them is that they lessen the severity of the disease as experienced by the "vaccinated" individual.

Those "vaccinated" individuals can still catch and spread the virus to others-- including "others" who are themselves fully "vaccinated". See reports here, here and here, for instance-- and also this.

Further, "vaccinated" individuals carry (and transmit) at least as much viral load as unvaccinated (as admitted here by the CDC)-- and possibly a great deal more (as indicated here).

Further still, contrary to the deceptions practiced by the "vaccine" boosters in government and the media, infections among the "vaccinated" have been occurring since the very beginning of the "vaccination" rollouts (as admitted here by the CDC). This means that "breakthrough" cases are not a consequence of "waning protection"-- the "protection" has never existed, and the "vaccine" manufacturers have never claimed that their products conferred immunity anyway. (Btw, be sure to note the admission in the fifth paragraph that,"...the number of reported COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases is likely a substantial undercount of all SARS-CoV-2 infections among fully vaccinated persons.")

Nor are "breakthrough" cases the consequence of some special property of the so-called "Delta variant". As pointed out in these pages previously in a bit more detail, it is the "spike protein" that makes the COVID virus dangerous. The "vaccines" purport to directly (and exclusively) provide a defense against that singular feature of the virus.

If the "vaccines" DO provide a defense against the "spike protein", then unless the "Delta variant" lacks the "spike protein" (and is therefore relatively harmless and not possibly the cause of "breakthrough infections") the "vaccines" will protect just as much against the "variant" as they do against the original version of the virus.

All told, then, the "vaccines" can be said to offer a private health benefit (to the extent that the claim of severity mitigation for the "vaccinated" person is true). But they offer no public health benefit whatsoever.

Let me say that again, for emphasis, and so that you all will copy and paste this simple analysis everywhere and repeat it to every Kool-Aid-drinking death-cult nutcase until it sinks in and their eyes unglaze:

The current COVID "vaccines" provide no public health benefit whatsoever.

Further, of course: With no public health benefit resulting from "vaccination", there is no valid rationale for mandating "vaccination"*.

SOMEWHAT IRONICALLY, the only persons actually incapable of catching or spreading the virus are those who have achieved natural immunity (that is to say, true immunity) through having caught and defeated the virus**. This means that those who abstained from the "vaccines" even before all the evidence of their ineffectiveness at conferring immunity began to accumulate have actually been the most admirable and effective contributors to "public health" threat mitigation in regard to virus transmission.

In light of the foregoing, the proper public policy at this point would be to immediately halt the "vaccine" injections in recognition of their uselessness and the dangers attendant upon them (however rare or uncertain they may be, some of which are nicely summarized here, others here). Allow the virus to infect whoever it reaches-- and, in fact, the more, the better.

Treat those who develop or are at risk of developing serious illness (or anyone infected who wishes it, regardless) with HCQ/Z-pack or Ivermectin (or any other safe and effective treatment which may subsequently emerge). Let the virus run its course in all other cases without concern-- harmlessly, if not entirely invisibly, as is already the case for most infections.

Every infected person will end up with actual immunity from the virus. That immunity will be full-spectrum, durable immunity, and not just to the "spike protein" element of the current bug. Naturally-achieved immunity creates immune-system memory and response to all of a pathogen's thousand different elements, meaning to every possible "variant" as well.

It is thus that COVID (C19) will be relegated to insignificance even among high-risk groups. While that process is running its course the world can immediately have a REAL "reset"-- right back to pre-hysteric normal.

HERE'S A FINAL THOUGHT: In order to facilitate that real reset to prehysteric times without a great deal of fuss and resistance, let's all begin right now to generate some serious and appropriate deterrence.

Let's start making it clear that any person found to have persistently distorted the threat of C19 (by repeating false fatality figures, as discussed here, for instance), or everyone found to have disparaged or suppressed safe and effective treatments for the virus, or anyone doing anything else calculated or naturally-disposed to keep panic alive in any other way will be deemed guilty of crimes against humanity. Let's make it known that every unnecessary misery or death that results from those crimes will be laid at the feet of the guilty parties, with punishments to match.

I am sick of being bombarded with lies about death tolls and the safety and effectiveness of the "vaccines", and the persistent destruction of our rights and economies and the rule of law. But these things won't ever stop their seasonal runs-- on the C19 pretext or some other hobgoblin panic-mongering-- until it becomes clear to the sociopaths responsible that there will be consequences.

"A nation of sheep begets a government of wolves."

-Edward R. Murrow

NOTES:

*Contra the bent notions of Jacobsen v. Massachusetts, this is not to say that any valid rationale for mandatory vaccines would otherwise exist even were an actual vaccine available. The availability of an actual vaccine capable of conferring real protection against infection eliminates any public threat from the unvaccinated. Any member of the public felt to be at risk can get the shot and be made safe, thus eviscerating any supposed public interest which could outweigh the personal autonomy rights of the unvaccinated.

**I am aware of claims made or implied to the effect that previously-infected persons have been subsequently re-infected. I do not subscribe to this proposition absent definitive proof that what is counted as the original infection was actually of C19, through either meaningful testing during the course of the illness, or positive C19 antibody testing afterwards. Such proof is not likely to be available with regard to any of the anecdotal "re-infection" cases asserted in the record thus far, since the RT-PCR tests which will have been relied-upon to establish C19 infection is completely unreliable.

In light of the fact that re-infection of those who had been prompted to develop an immune system response by an actual C19 initial infection is so contrary to normal and millennia-long-established immune-system behavior after initial infection and recovery, I assume that the one or the other illness event was not actually of C19, and was instead one of the many other viral pathogens with symptomatic presentation similar to symptoms ascribed to C19 (which is a long and eclectic list).

Remember 'War Games'?

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 hypersonic weapons.

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.

The Entire Legal And Practical Truth About The Income Tax In Three Short Sentences

Focus on these simple points and you can teach anyone the truth about the tax.

1. The income tax is an excise.

2. Excise taxes are taxes on the gainful exercise of privileges.

3. You probably didn't earn your money by exercising any taxable privilege (or earned very little that way).

Inarguable (and nowhere disputed) proof of the first two statements above can be found concisely spelled-out in this little 7-page document. Whether the third is true for any particular person can be determined by consulting this guide to understanding "income-taxable privilege".

Daft And Despicable Deniers

What the hell is wrong with these people?!

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 mountain of historical, legal, practical and logical evidence to the contrary? (Not to mention the 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. Isn't this true?

Important guest observations and commentary with an important afterword by Yours Truly

 

Why Do So Many Still Buy Into The Narrative?

A psychologist's application of mass formation analysis to the C19 hysteria.

I CAME ACROSS the video below just last night, and am pleased to have done so. In the film podcaster Dan Gregory-- a seemingly well-disposed observer of the "pandemic" madness, although this is the first time I've seen his work-- interviews Dr. Mattias Desmet, a statistician and clinical psychologist from Belgium, about the psychology of the COVID cult.

Although you should be prepared for some hesitations throughout as Desmet struggles to formulate a sentence, his English is pretty good, and what he has to say is both fascinating and very important. Not only does Desmet do a good job explaining the path to totalitarianism upon which the world finds itself right now, but he explains the dynamic by which so many of our fellows, here in America and elsewhere, have succumbed to the C19 hysteria as though bereft of their senses.

Watch the whole hour and 15 minutes. If you take a thoughtful approach to the threats around us (as everyone should), you will find yourself much better equipped than you had been with an understanding of how to productively fight back against the lunacy and its dire threat of atrocities to come if things are allowed to proceed undisturbed along their present course.

I WILL CAUTION YOU IN ADVANCE that Desmet has what seems an academic detachment-- if not a pessimism-- which I do not share and do not endorse. Toward the end of the film he is asked, more or less, "What can be done?" and his net answer is not reassuring.

Throughout, Desmet helpfully explains and encourages actions which his professional insight tells him will minimize the harm to come as the mass formation dynamic plays out. He even holds forth briefly on what to my mind is a very promising method by which the looming totalitarian nightmare can be interrupted and averted.

But all told, Desmet's detachment and pessimistic streak lead him to assume that we ARE going to experience that nightmare in full, with the sole caveat being that Desmet concludes that the terror will be relatively brief before the inevitable collapse during which the monsters consume each other and the sun comes back out. Desmet recommends that we all figure out a way to survive during that darkest time, without seeming to consider that totalitarian spasms tend to last for decades, so "brief" may still be much too long.

It may be that Desmet simply loses sight of his own remedy proposals. I don't, and am heartened by what he has offered in that regard. I hope you will be, too, and will be guided by those prescriptions in perfecting your own fight against the madness.

Here is the film:

Afterword

"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities."

-Voltaire

AS YOU WILL HAVE NOTED, relentless dissent, in as loud and prominent a fashion as possible, is critically important to our avoidance of truly horrendous events during the course of the insanity by which we are surrounded. Everyone needs to step it up, refusing to give in to the weariness of seeming to always be speaking to brick walls. According to Desmet, those brick walls actually do hear you, if dimly, and your dissenting voice offers the best hope of keeping the hypnosis from deepening to the point of utter mindlessness and what would amount to a zombie apocalypse.

At the same time, even though he himself doesn't seem to recognize its significance, Desmet also equips us with a prospect for actually interrupting the insanity, by redirecting the anxiety of the afflicted from the unrealistic fear of the relatively harmless virus to the very real and very dire threat of the totalitarian monstrosity to which that currently misdirected anxiety is leading us. This insight into the mass formation dynamic should help us all refine our dissenting messages to be more useful and more effective.

I THINK DESMET'S INFORMATION also implies a great virtue to our own deliberate and studied adoption of a demeanor of unconcern about the virus. We all will have been showing that in one way or another, but I think Desmet's insights suggest an eschewing of defiant demeanors in favor of very positive expressions of our lack of fear of the virus.

Perhaps we should tone down the arguments from rights as regards the prospect of "vaccine" mandates, for instance, and instead emphasize the point that no "vaccination" is needed because the virus is not a significant threat. We want, per Desmet's wisdom, to fight against the virus-anxiety of the  COVID cultists, rather than prompt their anger in response to our anger.

ON THE SUBJECT OF ANGER, LET ME FINISH with an observation prompted by having recently seen some really angry cultists fulminating against those of us who refuse the "vaccines": I think this anger reflects a desperate desire to affirm what these folks now subconsciously understand to have been their own deeply foolish choices to get the injections (and perhaps those they have imposed on dependent loved ones).

These folks want to eliminate your unvaccinated example, so that it no longer compels them to think-- even on only a subconscious level-- about what they have done to themselves. Or, more darkly, they feel that if they are going to suffer for their foolish choices, then you must be put into the same leaky boat. That way, you cannot just watch from safely ashore as they sink beneath the waves but instead must help save them, or at least, share their misery rather than being the final insult to their self-inflicted injury.

Maybe I'm too much of a cynic... But if I'm right, this insight might help guide the honing of our discourse with these folks to more productive ends than can be achieved by just ranting in reply.

A New Policy

I HAVE DONE MY BEST to lead this country to liberty from the mis-applied income tax. I have labored hard. I've shed a lot of sweat, a fair bit of blood and more than a few tears. But I seem to be pretty poor at that kind of work.

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 testimonial videos requiring nothing from any of you but the phone in your pocket and three minutes of speaking from the heart-- I have had only a handful of people answer my call.

I CAN'T KEEP GOING THIS WAY. I have to be able to turn my attention away from writing new persuasive or skepticism-addressing articles week after week, and toward research, analysis and educational presentations that will benefit everyone already in this community. I need time to do some suing, and to bring together the resources and talent toward that end.

As said, it is my firm belief that your testimonial videos are the resource that I need to make big things happen, and they are unquestionably the thing I need to allow me to turn my attention away from trying to get horses to drink at the waterhole to which I have led them. Your words, in your great numbers and all in your own different ways, will do that better than anything I write possibly could.

And yet, you are not providing them. This, despite my having been asking you for them for many years now.

Therefore, with enormous reluctance, I am making portions of this website restricted access only. People have been urging me to do this for years now, telling me I should impose a charge to access my work-product, so as to enable me to keep producing.

I have never been inclined to charge fees for access. I ask for donations, and will continue to do that, and if they do not come, then I will conclude that my work is of no value to anyone, and I will close shop.

But I now WILL charge a special something for access to some key portions of that work.

Opening selected pages on LHC comprising higher level legal resources now requires the submission of qualifying testimonial videos, as discussed, described and demonstrated here. The videos must be accompanied by scans of a recent educated filing along with responsive documents from the IRS, whether in the form of a check, a notice identifying and reflecting the filed return, or "return" and "account" transcripts for the year for which the return was filed. Names must be shown in full.

Similarly, if an email comes my way asking for guidance or assistance, I had better already have your video posted.

I HATE TO PLAY IT THIS WAY. But I want to win.

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 that goal.

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.”

Fear nothing but God.

What Makes YOU A Warrior For The Truth?

We each have our reasons, and our story. It's time, and it's needed, for you to share yours with the world.

P.S. READ EVERYTHING THAT FOLLOWS, CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY!!

 

"The day we see truth and do not speak is the day we begin to die."

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

What does it for you?

Is it simply because no moral and upstanding person has any choice when it comes to telling the truth over his or her signature, whether on tax forms or anywhere else?

Is it recognition of the critical importance of the rule of law, and the knowledge that if everybody leaves its caretaking to someone else, it will soon be lost to us completely?

Is it the money?

Maybe it's just simple respect for your own rights as a human being, who is not and cannot be not involuntarily subordinated to others?

Maybe it's just simple respect for your general civic responsibility to be the grown-up and enforce frugality and restraint on a big, powerful creature of our own devising which otherwise is like a badly-raised teenage boy given whiskey and car keys and let loose on the road to wreak havoc?

Or is it, perhaps, a more acute anxiety that if our bonfire of a state isn't damped, and quickly, it'll soon burn down the house around us all?

What IS it that firms up your jaw and stiffens your resolve?

It's time to take off the bushel and share your light!

I would like you to think about what it is that motivates you for a few moments (or all day, if you like), and then send me your thoughts. I want to put YOUR reasons to work inspiring folks who don't yet understand what this is all about.

In this day and age, the most effective way for you to share your thinking for the benefit of others is to video-record yourself talking about how you feel, and explaining what inspires and motivates YOU.

All you need is a webcam or cell-phone equipped with a camera. If you don't have, or know how to use, one of these, have a friend help. (And if you use a cell-phone, please have the orientation horizontal, not vertical-- that is, so that the screen of the phone on which you are watching yourself while taping looks like a TV or movie screen.)

If needed, write a little script for yourself. Better, though, to just speak extemporaneously, after spending a little time sorting out your thoughts and getting down into your heart. Perhaps make it a video of someone in your family, or a close friend, interviewing you.

Dress "business casual". Be well-groomed.

Keep yourself to no more than 2 or 3 minutes, and keep in mind that the purpose is not to educate, but to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE and ENERGIZE. Your video will be one of many to be shared. If you need to go 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-- why you're not discouraged, and why you are not 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 your plans.

Remember, your purpose is to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE and ENERGIZE.

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 CtC 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.

So, please make and send those videos right away! You can share them with me via a cloud-based drive space like DropBox, OneDrive.Live.com or GoogleDrive (if you do GoogleDrive you MUST give access permission to stategroups@losthorizons.com), or mail DVDs to me at 232 Oriole St., Commerce Twp., Michigan 48382, or even email to me if each file is no more than 20 megs (and you can break a video up if need be-- I can reassemble them). Render as .mpg or mp4, if possible; if not, send them how you have them and I'll make them work.

BTW: An encouraging and inspiring video will earn you access to the restricted pages on losthorizons.com and membership in the National Forum if you have also sent me a recent educated federal filing and IRS response (or relevant "return" or "account" transcript). I will be the judge of whether your submissions qualify for access, but if you do your best you should do fine.

Remember, the restoration of institutional respect for individual rights and the rule of law depends on enough individuals insisting upon it. Do your part to let those starting to rub the sleep from their eyes know that there is a community already waiting for their fellowship with open arms and open hearts and shining spirits.

See how some of your fellow warriors for the truth have done their parts in videos sent over the years, many of which are posted here.

"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

Was Grandpa Really A Moron?

Critical Inquiries for a New American Century

Bob’s Bicycles

or

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 town.

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 come together.

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:

I, ______________, rode a Bob's Bicycle a total of _____ miles this year.

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 profit”.

  • You are NOT being alleged to have received “foreign income”.

  • You are NOT entangled in an invisible “adhesion contract”.

  • 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.

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!

A Few Tips For Making Best Use Of This WebSite

USE THE SITE MAP!!!

USE THE SITE SEARCH!!!

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 my time...

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, the Victories pages, 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.

Assessing The Damage From The Misapplication Of The Income Tax

Man, are young Americans getting ripped off...!

"Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them, and these will continue till they have been resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress."

-Frederick Douglass

*****
