I was talking to someone the other day and they didn’t seem to know that Wesley Snipes. the lead actor in the movie Blade, had been ordered to serve 3 years for failing to sign that he knew and understood his taxes completely.
I know that might seem strange, that you can be sent to jail for years for failing to sign something that you don’t completely understand, of course the IRS won it’s case, as it tends to do….because the courts are maintaining the status quo.
So where is Obama for Wesley Snipes? Presidents pardon people all the time, why can’t Barrack Obama help out Wesley Snipes? I mean that is a simple thing, Wesley Snipes will still have to pay the money back but he doesn’t have to go to jail. So if Wesley Snipes goes to jail it’s because the same Obama Administration that let voter intimidation charges disappear, wants Wesley Snipes to go to jail for some reason I don’t understand.
What the saddest thing about this to me is, is that no one seems to care about Barrack Obama, who steps in to protect the human rights of foreign nationals in the United States under questionable circumstances, is perfectly willing to have U.S. Citizens killed without trials by a deliberate act on the part of government actors, forces people to resign, and send Wesley Snipes to jail.
So where are all those people who were Wesley’s fan when he was a puppet, doing what he was told, and reading the lines that others wrote for him? Where are all those people who told Wesley how they love him?
I don’t know where they are, or if they ever really existed. This isn’t to slight Mr. Snipes in any way, but rather to question how much of the Hollywood fake is real. Throughout the United States (and most of the world) we look at the world as the media, both “Liberal” and “Conservative” portray it.
However I believe that the people who control (not the public leaders) the discourse shape the conversation for the mutual benefit of a small group of people (see this article about the Koch Billions). In other words, I don’t really trust any movement that has a “leader” any more, that’s not to say that someone like Ron Paul, Rand Paul, et al. can’t be elected, but they shouldn’t be held up as a leader, because otherwise it becomes about their personal lives, not their values and how they have expressed their principles in life.
But for the moment I think we should just vote against the status quo, in whatever way is safe for you to do to the extent that is best. Which probably doesn’t mean fly a plane into the IRS building like Joe Stack.
Heres the government’s latest “victory” against Wesley Snipes.
I find it so interesting that according the United States Supreme Court, the IRS can say that one position means one thing and the same thing can mean the opposite when it suits them.
From “BOEING CO. V. UNITED STATES (01-1209) 537 U.S. 437 (2003)”, so I assume that the supreme court justice is telling something supportable:
the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) itself initially read the statutory and regulatory provisions at issue here to permit precisely what Boeing asserts it is allowed to do
And yet we happily seem willing to force people to pay amounts that they attest to being figured out by them based on their knowledge and understanding of the law, and given this, just pay whatever the account and the government say to pay, not really trying to understand the law, because it can legally change what it means, and that’s okay with most U.S. residents.
So Wesley Snipes will most likely be sent to jail, while illegal alien and freed criminal Alfredo Garcia is collecting thousands of day by court order while he travels freely in the United States.
But no one really cares about Wesley Snipes, much more important is whether one idiot or another is going to be elected to a position where, even if they were a saint, they will probably not able to stop whatever the next shoe to drop is.
Freeing Wesley Snipes, on the other hand, is something that Barrack Obama could do easier and for less money than what it cost to redecorate the White House, actually it would be more likely to allow the government collect more money from Mr. Snipes.
And but then Barrack Obama does seem to have some “crimes” that he feels are worse than others, apparently Wesley Snipes is the kind of person that Barrack Obama just can’t relate to…..
