Re: First and last

I hope you do better in the future James, and hopefully get to some AA meetings as you indicated you are battling a return of John Barleycorn. Getting to 12 step meetings would help anyone be grateful for what they do have. I went to a couple GA meetings as I was wasting money on scratch-offs, not a...

Re: Taxpayer Advocate Want IRS To Identify Friv Arguments To Taxpayer

It's interesting she is still at a position of advocate that she has had for so many years. I agree that clarification would be helpful for a certain percentage of frivolous filers. In the last 50 of so years every tax avoidance method has been tried, what we are seeing now are mere variations. So s...

"60 Minutes" Feature on Wine Fraud

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/billionaire-koch-brothers-crusade-against-counterfeit-wine/ This was a good feature, how someone with big bucks can hold unethical wine sellers accountable. One of my takeaways is that since he was the younger Koch brother, his voice rarely counted with his brothers and ...

Re: Avoiding state income taxes

Why not call them? The state DRS people are sometimes like the Maytag salesman glad to be of service. When I contact the state agency people they are not looking to get good citizens in a world of hurt.

Bad Sites Can't Find a Host

It looks like some of the more egregious of the "hate" sites are R.I.P. without many mourners: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stormfront_(website)


All it took were some smart lawyers to question the terms of service. Why did this take so long?

Re: Hobby Lobby tax evasion?

I'm just waiting for the day when a scammer's ties to Confucius', Plato's or Socrates' belief systems are off limits to slams against how they may use their religions as cover for fraud. There is no telling where an investigation like this may lead and I hope they are pursued, but 20 million or so i...

Happy Fourth

This is a great American holiday celebrating independence from Great Britain. England had other interests and conflicts they were fighting at the same time, so you can't blame them for finally calling it a day. Dr. North has been beating the drum questioning the very basis for our breaking away as f...

Re: Close call!

I'm pretty serious health wise, following diet by reason, but found the Hardees' black Angus wrapped in lettuce without sauce to be a decent fast food option where those outlets exist. The fast food chains could be a beacon of health reform instead of causes of stumbling with the mainstream. Quality...

Sorry to hear of your loss.

Re: Robert L. Schulz & $225,000 penalty

I'm surprised it took so long as he was one of the most outspoken TPs with a significant network up in Queensbury, I would have thought that NY would have also taken action as CA and NY are known as tough states for tax protesters.

Thanks for your observations. With ebay "terms of service" protects sellers. There are many outs, you lost the item, sprained your umbrella and weren't able to get to the library, etc.. You may get a negative and lawsuits can be fended off. As to "tortious interference" that is a...
