...For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

ONE WEEK AGO, a district court judge accommodated a DOJ interest by issuing (for the second time) a clearly lawless and utterly unprecedented order purporting to require my wife and me to perjure ourselves on past and future tax returns, so as to provide the federal government with a pretext for pursuing a claim to tax debts which otherwise do not exist and could not arise.



It would appear, I'm sorry to say, that upon hearing this news, some have reacted with a mindless, "I didn't know they could do that..."



Word to the wise: "They CAN'T do that."



Word to the wise II: "They're pretending to be able to do that because they very much wish to plague with doubt, and frighten into inaction and silence, everyone already so cowed and befuddled as to think, "I didn't know they could do that...!""



I'll try to express this in short words: "When a litigant (and/or a court) seeks (or makes) an illegal, unprecedented, and obviously unenforceable ruling, it is because what they are trying to do is not supported in the law, and they are acting in desperation"



This is not brain surgery, folks. You don't even have to understand WHY "what they are trying to do is not supported in the law" to know that it isn't...



*****



I say this, and distribute this special email, because over the last five days I have had forwarded to me dozens of postings and correspondences reflecting the "I didn't know they could do that...!" crowd. I've seen even more from the obnoxious shills for the lawless government.



I have seen precious few from the rest of you.



People, this will not do.



It will not do because it is shameful for so many to abandon the field to the liars and the lemmings. Worse still, your failure to take advantage of the golden opportunity handed to you by the enemies of the law is a blunder.



Stuck between helplessly watching their gravy-train of exploitation just grind to a halt, and the fact that the only means by which they can even TRY to keep it going a little longer is through a fabrication of sheerness-unto-transparency in the form of this "ruling", those enemies have stepped into the town square with no clothes on, like the Emperor in the fable.



In a word, they are naked before the world; they're hoping to brazen it out; and you know what? You're letting them get away with it.



This past Friday, I posted comments about this "ruling" in the newsletter (www.losthorizons.com/Newsletter.htm). Included with those comments is a press release especially written for this occasion. This afternoon I looked at my server records to see how many thousands of times this press release had been downloaded by you good folks for your own reading and for distribution to friends, family and the press. I was appalled at what I saw.



People, this will not do.



The softball of the war has been served up, and you're not even swinging. THIS WILL NOT DO! THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW!!

I'm going to tell you about something that happened due to the good efforts of one of the few of you who HAVE acted.



Last week, after the DOJ issued IT'S press release about this "ruling", I was contacted by reporters from Michigan's two largest daily newspapers. One of them interviewed me at some length.



Two things happened the next day.



The reporter to whom I had spoken at length didn't post a story at all. However, out of the blue I was contacted by the producer for a program on Metro Detroit's PBS station starring a very friendly editor from his newspaper. Coincidence? Maybe... Anyway, we taped the the show the next morning, and a very positive and educational segment about CtC was put in front of a potential audience of 4 million that evening.



That was just me, and good fortune. However...



The OTHER reporter posted an article, which basically toed the government line. A good deal more business-as-usual, and, in the normal course of things, that would've been that, BUT...



It turns out that a Michigan Warrior who read this reporter's article has chosen to act. This Warrior has been diligently bugging the reporter ever since about the inaccuracies of the DOJ-fed text. Thanks to those efforts alone, this reporter called me this afternoon in order to get the facts and set the record straight. Another massive audience will now get the truth, and solely because one guy cares enough to get into gear.



You can do this, too.



Imagine the strides that could be made if each of you undertook to buttonhole one reporter and convince him or her to speak the truth. It can begin with no more effort than simply putting the press release into that reporter's hands as an introduction. It's that easy.



BUT YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE YOURSELF DO IT.



The bad guys get away with their BS because we don't do enough to counter them. Now is a rare chance to get a huge amount of easy mileage from their tough spot. Please don't let it be missed.



Use your voice, and use your heart. Get the press release at www.losthorizons.com/PostWitnessTampering.pdf, and use the heck out of it, too.



Don't be the nail that went missing.

Too busy laughing at the attempts of a Paytriot guru trying to spon his resounding courty loss as a huge conspiracy.

To tuva or bust: Yeah, I guess you're right. There are no government cover ups and there is no corruption. It's just everybody's imagination. Bunch of loser conspiracy theorists.

Did you use to post with the name of Joey?

By the way, don't let your master catch you laughing.
