Aaron Key wasn't sure he wanted a tattoo on his neck. Especially one of a giant squid smoking a joint.
But the guys running Squid's Smoke Shop in Portland, Ore., convinced him: It would be a perfect way to promote their store.
They would even pay him and a friend $150 apiece if they agreed to turn their bodies into walking billboards.
Key, who is mentally disabled, was swayed.
Our government has gone absolutely power mad! Orwell's "Big Brother" has certainly arrived in America !
Why are you still paying taxes? Do you like paying the salaries of these idiots?
You miss a very important point. This is supposed to be a "Government OF the People, BY the People, FOR the PEOPLE". Not government OF the people BY the Government, FOR the Government. The CONgress is SUPPOSED to work with the consent of the People. Did anyone (other than the CONgress) ever get the chance to VOTE on the "income" tax? Of COURSE not... So why PAY it? As applied, it is illegal and UnConstitutional.
Mr. Capone OWED it. (Profits and Gains) YOU probably do not. (paycheck) If you can't hold your INCOME (Profits and Gains) in one hand, and your PAYCHECK in the other, you probably have NO INCOME, thus no 'liability' to an "income" tax.
"...under the Constitution Congress has the right to tax the people."
Where is that? I see where the CONgress has power to tax imports, and coroprate profits, as well as Capital Gain. (PROFIT AND GAIN.) It can levy a DIRECT TAX upon the States, based upon their population as of the most recent census. The States then collect from the People. But they (CONgress) do NOT have the power to tax the People directly, as is seemingly done with the 'income' tax. They couldn't in 1912, and they couldn't in 1913, after the phony ratification of the 16th amendment.
Go to the library and find the Lawbook, 240 U.S. Go to page ONE, and READ THE CASE. Mr. Brushaber lost the case, but he argued incorrectly. Or rather, he argeued correctly, but had no standing, since he did, indeed, owe a tax.
You should work for IRS! This is how THEY read the 16th. It is NOT SO. Did you READ the Brushaber case? It tells the story. I can supply MANY more.
"INCOME" is PROFIT OR GAIN. Your PAY is NOT profit or gain, it is, in fact, a LOSS. SCOTUS has said so often. IRS doesn't want you to know it, but it is so.
SHOW ME, in the 16th a SINGLE WORD that REPEALS the Article One provisions that forbid a DIRECT TAX on the People. There are TWO such provisions, but NOT A WORD repealing them in the 16th. That lack of REPEAL provisions (must be explicit) is what keeps the amendment Constitutional. It is APPLIED in an un-Constitutional manner.

What Robert is saying is that one man alone does nothing it takes all of us !!!
I am doing something, but trying to get you old guys to stick your neck out and stand with me is like pulling teeth out of an elephant with a pair of tweezers. Simple... all you have to do is call the Washington state legislators and ask why the Attorney General and the lawmakers themselves are making it illegal for themselves to be a good neighbor doing their civic duty to uphold our Supreme Law of the Land. I have just emailed everyone of them the following:
