Oh, Mike, Mike, Mike. Your ongoing claims about my "lies" keep getting 
busted. Here's bust #3:

That's from your post on 4/18 at 7:27 PM. You cite the scam website as 
proof that people don't owe taxes. Yet, people who try it end up in jail.

Face it; taxes are legit.  But do you put your money where your mouth 
is? We still don't know...

I'm surprised a libertarian activist such as yourself doesn't realize 
that the Bill of Rights only limits government actions and not 
individuals' actions. Or are you also about to claim that the First 
Amendment lets you say whatever you want on WBZ? I'm just a private 
citizen, asking a simple question (hardly a "demand", except inasmuch as 
your evasion undermines your own point about those cockamammie 861 scams).

You endorse an Internet tax-evasion scheme, and I ask if you've tried it 
yourself. It's a simple enough question, Mike, and a simple answer would 
go a long way towards giving credence to your side of things.

But I find your evasiveness to be quite telling.
