Got A Call From The Concord Monitor

Yesterday we received a call from Margo Sangor Katz who works for the Concord Monitor. She said they are working on another article on the Browns - something about the type of people who have supported them in the past versus the people who are supporting them now. The local media pieces have seemed to take a much darker turn against the Browns lately. Elaine was commenting on this on the RBN show yesterday. We have documented on this blog the fact that, at least with the Union Leader, the positive comments we've tried to post in support of the Browns are not being published on the net.

Well....we just found the article Margo wrote posted at this link.

First I would question the accuracy of the article. It seems to mix in truth with some possible lies.

For one I cannot seem to find that quote from Reno anywhere on his MySpace page. If anyone else can, please post the link.

Second, this article seems to try very hard to take people's minds off of the liability for the income tax and tries to paint Ed as a nut who pushes people away.

Personally from what I have seen of Ed, he is hard to get along with. I can be that way at times. But do we really need to focus on that?

I personally wish Ed would stop using these unorthodox "Edward Lewis of the Family Brown" statements. It just alienates him from the hearts and minds of the people.

Ed, if you are reading this. I beg you, please stop alienating people. Accept them for who they are and don't let that cause you discomfort in your own beliefs. Focus on the real matter here.

Its plain and simple. There is a group of people with guns saying that you owe them money. When you ask how you are liable for the debt, they aim the gun at you and say THIS is how you are made liable.

Ed and Elaine do not want any services from the Federal Government so they do not pay. They were paying property taxes until the State stopped protecting them, so they stopped paying. Doesn't this make any sense?

If I came over an mowed your lawn without you asking me to do it, is it fair for me to force you to pay for the service? If we had a prior agreement for me to mow your lawn and I stopped doing it, would it be right for you to stop paying me?

These issues need to be in context. Do us all a favor and keep the crazy legal theories to yourselves.

Subject: A talk?
Body: Hello,We haven't met yet, but my name is Margot and I'm a reporter at the Concord Monitor who has been covering Ed and Elaine Brown's case. I was wondering if you might be willing to talk with me a bit about how you got involved in helping the Browns and what your experience there has been like. I wasn't sure of the best way to reach you, but I thought myspace might be a good start.You can call me at 603-369-3307 or email at I'd be grateful if you would drop me a line, even if it's just to say you don't want to talk. Also, please send my best to Ed and Elaine. It's been tough to stay in touch since the phones were disconnected.All best,msk

My answer was a refusal to speak with her or any media. She then went and wrote her article. She got it wrong I was not and am not now at the Browns when she sent her message.I have sent her a message asking that she retract her statments and contact the Boston papers that Repeated her false information. She also had it wrong on why others left or were asked to leave.
I support Ed and Elaine 100% on their stand against the fraudlent income Tax.
