I get e-mails every so often looking for me to try to get more focus on my use of so many websites. The thinking I have is based in the thinking of a lady named Barbara, who teaches people how to succeed. She is on PBS tv from time-to-time. She says, "Do everything." In other words, put yourself out there in the world on every level, and people will respond to what they themselves have an interest in. Instead of being a one trick pony who just talks about taxes, I can run a whole circus with all kinds of activities. In the end, people will be drawn to the other areas of interest I manifest.

Take Jerry Falwell or James Kennedy for an example. Neither of these men are known for just one topic of discussion. They have mathmatical skills, theological skills, writing skills, etc. We need a range of interests and effort to be successful in life. Not every battle is won facing down an enemy. Sometimes, we can go through the window or the backdoor to win. I speak of tax issues. My sermons build credabilty with the Christian Community in general, who inturn will see me as one of their guys. The Tax Honesty guys see me blogging about taxes, who see me as one of their guys. The slaves in Africa see me working to free them, so they see me as one of their guys. "I am all things to all men," I hope. This quote the Apostle Paul asserted to be the means by which he gained more people to Christ. Christ is my director on this stage, and it is he I seek to honor in all my work. Gene.

Warren Buffett is buying Euros. This questions the US Dollar's longterm stability in my mind. I studied Buffett like a religion for years and even traded a few letters with him back in 1998. He is no chump. The Euro is a safer place than the Dollar, I read in this move. This is powerful stuff. The outcome could be 'US stagflation on the horizon' in the mind of history's greatest stock picker. Gene.

"One Wife"

Since I stirred so much controversy last week in my sermon entitled, "Polygamy," I felt this would be a good time to explore the qualification of both a bishop and a deacon to be the husband of "one wife."

We read in I Timothy 3:2, "A bishop (ie. pastor) must then be blameless, the husband of one wife." And in I Timothy 3:12, we read, "Lets the deacons be the husbands of one wife." The word "one" in both texts means, "first" or "one." It is the Greek word, "mia."

John MacArthur says the word means, "a one woman man" in his famed commentary. I can't draw that from my studies, but I respect the real possibility that I may not be as well studied as Pastor MacArthur, so I shall yield to his stature as a great Bible teacher at this point.

Clearly, a man in church leadership is to be not given to sexual relationships with multiple women. His focus is to be heavily on the work of God so that his drive for women is not as primary as others.

There has been great debate on the meaning of the word, "one" in relationship to divorce and remarriage for pastors in church history. The fact is that a "first" wife is the preferred wife in God's plan for a minister. I would not and could not tell a man that this text negated his being either a bishop (ie. pastor) or deacon, myself. But I respect those who go to the absolute end of possibilities in rejecting divorced and remarried pastors and deacons. I respect those who oppose me as a pastor, were I ever to remarry, given that my first wife left me for another model years ago.

My position has always been that in America we are in a mess; if God brings a better pastor to the flock than I, I'll gladly hand him the keys to the door.

There are many many different directions of technical meaning we can place on divorce and remarriage. My suggestion is, stay together at all costs if you want God's absolute perfect will for your life.

The President

The White House

Washington, D.C. 20500

Dear Mr. President:

It has been my privilege and honor to serve you and this great country for the past three years. Unfortunately, I have found it extremely difficult to balance the requirements of the office with time for my family. Consequently, I have concluded that the time has come for me to return to the private sector to allow me to spend more time with them, and I am writing to resign as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Tax Policy. To allow for a smooth transition, Secretary Snow requested that my resignation be effective after the completion of the fiscal year 2005 budget.

Under your leadership, we have taken important steps toward a tax system consistent with our values and our best interests as a nation. Your principles, your values, and your commitment to doing what is right have resulted in change far beyond the incremental change that too often marks our progress. I am proud of what we have accomplished over the last three years and pleased to have had the opportunity to play a role in promoting policies that have resulted in economic growth and job creation. We have also taken important steps over the last three years to restore the confidence of American taxpayers in the tax system, which was shaken by the excesses of the 1990s. I appreciate the opportunity that I have had to work with the talented staff of the Office of Tax Policy and the Internal Revenue Service to achieve those goals.

May God bless you as you continue to lead our country.

Very truly yours,

Pamela F. Olson

I just got off the phone with Irwin Schiff. He has agreed to do daily audio blogs. Doug Kenline has been instructed to call Irwin 3 times a day on my behalf until Irwin is hooked in to do the audio blogs. I told Irwin that I'm sure there must be 10,000 people out here waiting to hear his voice each day. He took interest.

Irwin wants me to remind everyone that you may styill buy The Federal Mafia, Irwin's banned book for the next 30 days. Getting these copies out before the Government could stop their sale again would be a good lick on our part.

Well, I did a good run this week. I actually had to take the rest of the day off to keep from breaking the rules, my boss told me. I'm online for the night. Gene. Thursday, Dec. 11th.

I gave Ed, our elderly Arizona friend, who lost his home to the IRS last year $100 of the church Homeless Money this week. He almost cried when he realized he finally had enough to buy a $450 car and get off the street. Thanks to those who give to God's work. I almost cried when I realized how touched Ed was. God Bless us all. Gene. see: for a picture of Ed.

Doug Kenline has a new e-mail address: I hope he goes into all my sites and updates it for us. I'm overworked in this truck right now.

I'm finding that my effort to pull traffic from the various search engines with all the new blogs to our movement is working well. Google and others are rising in relative attention they are bringing to the work. Gene.

Thanks to Mr. Stegmeier for the $50 donation, less a ($1.75) Paypal Fee is $48.25 to the TAX MARCH ON WASHINGTON account. We'll post it on this weekend. Gene.

We are pricing the per hour cost of an plane with banner to drive traffic to the websites in Atlanta.

Our man (Robert) in Atlanta is currently driving my mobile billboard to and from work, as he seeks a site for it to work outside the IRS, there in Atlanta.

Please keep praying for the freedom of all peoples of the world, including the people of Cuba.
