    This is the same guy who offers words of wisdom and chin lifters in the 'Trivia' flyer on display in McDonalds, A&W, etc. Grasshopper say ' he who try to put boots to Feds will get kicked in ass for five years'. Ah so!!!

    Gee..wonder if I could get that INTREST FREE loan. This is so wrong if that is in fact the fine and payment figures as quoted in Wednesday paper. Surely he should pay interest at a significant rate. .say 8% in which case he would pay up front and fund from other sources. QUESTION TO TELEGRAM... are payment plans from the court usually allowed and if so are they intrest free. I assume the federal GOVT as well levied their penalties in addition to that so or does formal charges void that and court decides the whole. ..curious. .we all have a duty to pay taxes. .not more than we legally should and certainly no less..

    Individuals involved in illegal enterprises often engage in tax evasion because reporting their true personal incomes would serve as an admission of guilt and could result in criminal charges. Todd Foster

    It seems rather harsh compared to what politicians of all parties, under the Tobin administration, recieved for what amounted to outright criminal activities.
