Uh hasn't Snipes been in prison for like 2 or 3 years? This is old news...

Unless he was released and imprisoned again... This is like 3 year old news, bro.

Edit:
I just checked my info. He had never been imprisoned until yesterday. I remember seeing it on the news in "08 and thought he was imprisoned back then.

against the law!

the law is the law.

he got busted, he knew it long ago that he could be in trouble.


he was an idiot, as cool as i think he is in the movies.



Yep, the law is the law. If the IRS stormed in your house for not paying your taxes, and shot your dog and raped your wife, well... you know, the law is the law. You should have paid your taxes. The Law = The Law. It doesn't matter what the Law is, because the law is the law. If the Law permitted the IRS to do the above... well, you know... the Law is the LAw, and you shoulda' paid your taxes, duh.

Mao made laws, too. And you know what? The law is the law.

That you don't even think it's lawful for govt to collect taxes for police, you know, the protection of property rights, tells me you are coming from the extremely radical world view.


If my ideas frighten you, then you should stay away from early American History. I understand that you've been brainwashed and that breaking your socialist conditioning is hard, but come on, man. Is it ok for me to steal from you if my friends write me a note? I need some lawn work done.

Everyone is required to pay taxes. Snipes gets no sympathy from me. He knew what he was doing and he broke the law.

I love his films, but he got what he deserved.


He broke no law. There is no law in the whole of the American legal system that can be found that says that you legally have to pay taxes. The IRS is breaking the law. The only reason everyone pays without incident is because the IRS criminal machine is so powerful that the average man could never win a court case against an entity so big and powerful, with an unlimited budget. The other reason is because well.......people are ignorant to the fact that the IRS is a privately owned business and therefore not legally admissible in the jurisdictions of American government issuance. Some have actually beat the IRS at their own game because of this fact, but most do not win because our system of government is no longer for the people.....it no longer runs off of the blood, sweat and tear of patriots...it now runs off of illusion money. No one deserves what he got. The IRS and the Federal Reserve are criminals of the highest caliber and should not even be in our country. They, alone, are the reason our country has been destroyed. They are a criminal organization of Satan that America sold her soul to via out President Woodrow Wilson. Here is a quote of his after he sold our country up the river and then realized what he had done...........

"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." -Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve into existence

So I'm brainwashed and a socialist for thinking police protection is a legitimate function of government ?
You're deluded and make Ron Paul look like a communist.

yes, because coercively funded government necessarily can not be legitimate.

Police services are better provided by the private sector.

Just look what the TSA did to airport security.

If we got rid of all victimless crime, the only type of crime left would be property and violent crime. Private security is superior at preventing property crime and violent crime.

Do you know where "police" came from? Do you know the history and nature of police today?
Can you tell me the difference between the police dept and the sheriff?

The Reagan administration did a study in the 80s and found that 100% of your tax money goes to paying the interest on the debt. In other words you pay your money to the Rothchilds and Rockefeller and a few other scumbag bankers that bought off Woodrow Wilson to get the Federal Reserve Act passed which put this country into slavery. The entire tax system is a fraud and does nothing but support evil. Having said that, the ones with the guns do whatever they want so if they want to make an example of you, they will. We live in a country fun like a big Mafia. In fact, the only difference between the US and the Mafia is that the US Government has badges.

Arguing that private security in an airport is more effective than TSA is a whole different kettle of fish than arguing taxation to pay for any police protection is illegitimate. I guess in your world view, people who can't afford to hire their own private security forces are SOL ? Do you advocate vigilantism ?

Why is it different?

Is the bouncer at the nightclub different than a cop at breaking up fights?

Is the private investigator any different than a police detective?

Is a bounty hunter any different than a US Marshal?

What legitimate police function can not be accomplished by the private sector better?

-------

If you are a liberal, do you think the war on drugs raises or lowers prices? If it raises prices, why? What do you think would happen to the price of police services if they were privatized?

I am sick of people saying that the goverment is breaking the law.Have you read the 16th Amendment?It has been fought against many times in the supreme court and it has been upheld.Only six states did not ratify it, only need 36 to become law.You see this is one of the powers that the goverment has under our original constitution, try reading it.The IRS is I repeat is a goverment run office.Some of you people need to do some research and stop reading uninformed message boards for your info.And for you people who say we need no taxes.Where do you think your roads, most of your public hospitals and countless other orgs. get there funding from?Even if we completely disbanded our military and never had another war ever again you are only talking about 8% of the funds.I could go on and on but as usual I will get flamed for stating what should be general knowledge.

LOL

Who cares about the 16th amendment?

If the government creates a law that says Billy Bob can steal from your wallet, is the law really a law?

The law is what nature says it is.

The law says - THE INITIATION OF VIOLENCE IS WRONG
The law says - THEFT IS WRONG
The law says - DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE DONE UNTO YOU

That is the law.

You should actually watch your own video

edit on 10-12-2010 by jfj123 because: (no reason given)



So if opium is the Taliban's main source of funding, why are US troop guarding the opium crop?

I already answered that question. If you don't believe my answer....watch YOUR video. It will explain everything



Of course, opium is not the Taliban's main source of funding - it can't be,

But that's what YOUR video states. The video says, clear as day, that the taliban sells opium to fund their war.
Again, that info comes from YOUR video.


Who's selling the opium the US troops are guarding?

WATCH YOUR VIDEO FOR THE ANSWER !!!! YOUR VIDEO ! WATCH IT! For god sake pay attention !!!!

I am glad to hear that. Thanks for clearing it up.
Taxing a man's wages is still theft.

I own my own business in Michigan and the state and federal government are taxing me to death !
I'd call it theft all right !

I love how the lot of you are praising him and feeling sorry for the guy. He's rich. The reason why he wasn't paying for his taxes, which he can easily afford, is because he is either stupid or lazy. Snipes thinks, much like the rest of Hollywood, that he is above the law and society in general. Also Al Capone wasn't a saint


I suppose we should hate rich people simply because they are rich.

Rich people should not be entitled to their property.

They clearly don't deserve it.

I deserve it.

Which is why I think I should be allowed to take it from them by force.


The reality is that we need to pay taxes to ensure a stable government and a stable country. If you don't care about laws, safety, your childrens future, move to a country that has no law like somalia.
Does the government use our tax money wisely all the time??? NO of course not. And if we don't like it, it's our job as WE THE PEOPLE to ensure those who do not serve us as we require, are no longer employed. And if the new ones fail us as well, it's our job to remove them as well. The problem is that WE THE PEOPLE have become lazy and have allowed the loonies to run the asylum. Just curious but what have you done to change what is happening in the US?

So what is your position, that all income taxes are immoral ? Even for people with income of millions of dollars ?

This thing is, most rich people do not get their income from wages. They get it from capital gains. i.e. Money making money.




My position is theft is immoral, including theft from "rich" people.

Of course, as a percentage of income, the poor are "rich" as far as the government is concerned.

So you are more concerned about the 1% of the US population than
the 99% of the US population?????
You seem much more concerned about the super rich losing their money than the rest losing their money
