Surprise surprise… the prosecutor in Dick Simkanin’s tax case went ahead and raised the usual objection, arguing that the tax code is not relevant to the case. I’m curious to know how those of you who believe that the federal income tax is not a fraud would explain how Mr. Simkanin could possibly be violating the law if the prosecutor is correct and the tax code is not relevant to his case, which revolves around his refusal to withhold from his employees’ paychecks. I expect that the jury, as is increasingly often the case, will smell a rat and exonerate him.
And yet, we’ll probably have blowhards like Sean Hannity and Alan Colmes arguing that “the law must be followed”. Guys, that’s kind of the whole freaking point! Cretins.
