Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

I'm proud to pay taxes in the United States; the only thing is, I could be just as proud for half the money.
Arthur Godfrey

It’s the end of a century of injustice. There has been a legal ruling that will soon lay bare all the unconstitutional actions of the last 100 years or so. I’m talking about the 16th amendment to the constitution, never ratified by the citizens and in direct opposition to the reasons that this Republic was first founded. Yeah, I’m talking about the income tax.

The Internal Revenue Service has lost a case before a jury by a 12 to 0 vote. They were supposed to prove a constitutional foundation for the nation’s income tax.

A Lawyer, Tom Cryer was cleared of two criminal tax counts in Louisiana and is setting his sights even higher. “I think now the people are beginning to realize that this has got to be the largest fraud backed up by intimidation and extortion, and by sheer force of taking peoples property and hard-earned money without any lawful authorization.”

He is not one of the crackpots or crooks who have made a business of teaching people how to avoid paying taxes. Most of the people who try the things they tell them end up in tax court, and pay lots of interest and penalties.

The briefs are complicated (big surprise) but they boil down to a definition of income.

The free exchanged labor for compensation has been upheld as a right by the Supreme Court but doesn’t necessarily make the compensation income.

Mr. Cryer is now waiting for the IRS and Federal prosecutors to decide what they will do next. I bet they drop it rather than take the chance of going to the Supreme Court and a firm decision on weather the whole IRS by it’s very existence is in violation of the constitution of the United States. I would love to see it go that far though.

Mr. Cryer has a couple of web sites that he encourages people to check out, and I’ll try to list them at the end.

The Constitution does not empower the federal government to regulate education or employment.

There are three points that are important
1. There is no law making the average worker liable for income taxes.
2. There is no law or regulation that allows the IRS to contend that earnings are 100% profit received in exchange for nothing.
3. The right to earn a living through any lawful occupation is a constitutionally protected fundamental right, and it is exempt from taxation.

If I understand the point, the only thing that should be considered income is the money you earned on other money. If you do work for someone and they give you money in return ,it is not necessarily income and you should be able to exempt it from the income tax. You own your time and labor so if you exchange it for compensation you have expended a part of your supply that you can’t earn back and should not pay tax on it.

I would love to see the case go to the Supreme Court, but the IRS will probably bury it to try to make it go away.

The IRS lets Wall-mart sell a trillion dollars worth of junk but lets them deduct the amount they paid for that junk and only be taxed on the amount left over.

Boy what would happen if the government couldn’t fund 50 million dollar bridges to nowhere, not to mention all those bombs they like to buy.
