You were quick to run an article about how a federal court has permanently barred Robert Schulz and his organization, We The People, from promoting a "tax scheme" ("Court orders end to tax protest scheme," Sept. 10-23, 2007, page 5). However, perhaps you were too quick.On Aug. 30, 2007, the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that We The People does not have to turn over to the government any information identifying people who have obtained materials from or donated money to We The People. The court approved a motion to stay Judge McAvoy's entire injunction order. And the court directed the government to submit its written response to We The People's emergency motion as soon as possible.

In the interest of fairness, you should run a blurb about Tom Cryer's win over the Internal Revenue Service. Cryer is the trial attorney who has refused to file income tax returns for years. He was charged with income tax evasion and willful failure to file. Cryer was acquitted of all charges. Why? Because there is no law requiring him or anyone else to file!

If you think there is a law, please tell me what it is. I am sure the IRS attorneys would have won if they would have just dragged out the law and showed it to the jury. They didn't! Why? Because there isn't one!
