A Dog's Life



Me with the Goodyear Family Dogs after I ask if I can become a Goodyear Dog. They have a good life.

We just got back from the movie, The Passion of The Christ, today. I teared up a couple of times; once when Mary, the mother of Jesus, cried and at the beginning where the quote from Is. 53 appeared. It's a pretty accurate movie, but they cut out one place in the story where the Jews said, "Let his blood be upon our heads and upon our children's heads." I think that is a pretty close quote of what it says in the Bible.

As I looked at the film, I was reminded that Jesus had a truth that went through people like a hot knife through butter. I feel that the TAX MARCH from here on out may well be for no other reason than to feed my ego and the story of my work for historians to write and film about. This doesn't seem to be the right reason to march. My hope is that the the Silver Bullet project will go through senators and congressmen in the next few months like a hot knife through butter, as I talked about above. If it doesn't produce measurable results within a month or two (ie. IRS employees quitting their jobs, etc.), I see the only conclusion is that we must look for some exodus/ exile from an enslaved nation. If the coffee cups and business cards are fruitless, we have no moral arguement to make against this immoral system of taxation, in my humble opinion.

Hi Robert,

I just read that I've been in the news in Havana, Cuba, concerning the Cuban Freedom Fast. You may read the material on slavefreedom.com.

It came to me that the Brothers to the Rescue President and Ramon Sanchez had welcomed me to do the fast but never came to show me any companionship in the common struggle. I felt betrayed by them and empty in my effort, so I ended the fast after 7 1/2 days. I do want the Cuban people to know that I am with them in their struggle for freedom and may be back next year or the year after to fast again, but I need them supportive if I am to risk my life and health for them in a long fast again.

Please keep in tough.

respectfully,

Gene Chapman, Minister of Christ

P.S. David Goodyear loved your hand rolled cigars.

Candente polémica con la Unión Europea

Agence France Presse, LA HABANA. Feb. 09, 2004

Representantes de la Unión Europea (UE) y Cuba sostuvieron el fin de semana una intensa polémica respecto al impacto que ha tenido la decisión de los Quince de restringir los contactos culturales con la isla de gobierno comunista, medida adoptada tras un masivo encarcelamiento de disidentes.

El cruce de acusaciones comenzó el viernes pasado, cuando el presidente del Instituto Cubano del Libro, Iroel Sánchez, acusó a la UE de aplicar un ''bloqueo cultural'' a Cuba, al inaugurar la XIII Feria Internacional del Libro de La Habana.

La muestra literaria tenía a Alemania como ''invitado de honor'', pero el gobierno de Berlín rehusó participar en la Feria al plegarse a las sanciones dictadas por la UE en junio pasado contra el gobierno de Fidel Castro.

Sánchez arremetió contra la comunidad europea en su discurso y dijo que actúa como ''cómplice'' de Estados Unidos en el intento de aislar a Cuba, aplicando "un bloqueo cultural fracasado desde su publicitado inicio''.

Los organizadores dedicaron la XIII Feria Internacional del Libro ''a la cultura alemana'' en general y unas 30 editoriales de ese país se instalaron en los puestos de exhibición en La Habana, pese a la decisión de su gobierno de abstenerse de asistir al evento.

El sábado, la delegación diplomática de la Comisión Europea en la capital cubana replicó las declaraciones de Sánchez y subrayó en una nota que "la UE jamás ha decidido un bloqueo cultural contra Cuba y que sigue dispuesta a apoyar actividades culturales en la isla''.

Recordó, además, que la decisión de ''reducir la presencia de representantes de los Estados miembros (de la UE) en acontecimientos culturales'' se adoptó "en protesta por el encarcelamiento de 75 opositores políticos en marzo del 2003, los cuales siguen actualmente en prisión''.

El Comité Organizador de la XIII Feria del Libro rechazó ayer la nota de la Comisión Europea y afirmó en un comunicado que ''resulta increíble'' que se niegue la existencia de ''un boicot cultural'' a Cuba por parte de los Quince.

El documento reseñó algunos ejemplos de esas sanciones y destacó que ''instituciones de Francia y Países Bajos sabotearon la 8a Bienal de La Habana (en noviembre pasado) retirando los apoyos que habían comprometido''. También mencionó ''la negativa de visas por parte del consulado de España a decenas de artistas'' cubanos y, por último, ''la retirada oficial de Alemania de su condición de país invitado de honor'' a la Feria.

''¿Cómo explica la Unión Europea estos hechos? ¿Cómo puede pretender que tomemos en serio su ahora declarada disposición de apoyar actividades culturales en Cuba?'', se interrogan las autoridades de La Habana en el documento.

Inician huelga de hambre contra los abusos en Cuba

Carla Valero , Especial para El Nuevo Herald. Feb. 09, 2004.

Bajo el lema ''no sean esclavos de los hombres'', Gene Chapman, de la Congregación de Cristianos de Alabama, inició ayer una huelga de hambre de 41 días en la Pequeña Habana para luchar contra el comunismo.

Chapman, que es un pastor que da sermones por internet, decidió tomar esta iniciativa para apoyar el movimiento cubano Hermanos al Rescate, liderado por José Basulto. ''Mi causa es luchar contra cualquier tipo de comunismo, ya sea el que hay en Estados Unidos con la recaudación de impuestos que provienen de los sueldos de la gente o el que ejerce Fidel con los cubanos'', explicó Chapman.

Según Chapman, el sistema de impuestos y el sistema educativo en Estados Unidos están basados en el Manifiesto Comunista de Karl Marx, y habría que sustituirlos por métodos alternativos. "A los niños hay que sacarlos de las escuelas públicas porque les lavan el cerebro y el Gobierno no tiene derecho a recaudar impuestos de los frutos que hemos conseguido con el sudor de nuestra frente''.

La huelga de Chapman, en la que se calcula perderá unas 40 libras, supone un costo de $500 a la semana que están financiados por su propia comunidad y por donaciones privadas. Durante los 41 días de ayuno voluntario, Chapman organizará mesas redondas, coloquios y reuniones con los cubanos donde se tratará el tema del movimiento comunista.

''El problema del comunismo es que esclaviza y manipula a la gente. Según la página web del movimiento Hermanos al Rescate, en Estados Unidos existe una tasa de impuestos del 53 por ciento mientras que en Cuba es del 99 por ciento. ¿Quiere esto decir que estamos a tan sólo un 46 por ciento de diferencia respecto al país más demoníaco del mundo?'', declaró Chapman.

Chapman es consciente de los problemas que comporta dejar de comer y sabe que se encontrará mal a partir del día 36, pero dice que no le importa porque lo hace por una buena causa. ''A los 18 años, Dios me llamó para ser sacerdote, rezar y ayudar a los demás, esa es mi misión y por eso estoy aquí''. indicó.

Cuando acabe esta huelga de hambre, Chapman se dirigirá a Atlanta donde a mediados de abril iniciará otro ayuno frente al edificio del IRS, el organismo encargado de recaudar los impuestos.

Chapman afirma tener unos 40,000 afiliados a su causa en el mundo y confía en que esta huelga de hambre servirá para ''hacer llegar nuestro mensaje a la gente'', aseveró.

Niegan la visa a un pastor bautista

Associated Press, MOBILE, Alabama. Feb. 09, 2004.

Las autoridades estadounidenses negaron la visa de entrada a un ministro protestante cubano que estaba invitado a hablar en varias iglesias del estado de Alabama en ocasión del Mes de Historia Negra.

El reverendo Raúl Suárez, pastor de la Iglesia Bautista Ebenezer, en La Habana, tuvo que cancelar su viaje este mes. Funcionarios del Departamento de Estado declinaron comentar sobre al solicitud de Suárez, citando normas de confidencialidad. Funcionarios de la Oficina de Intereses de Estados Unidos en la capital cubana también se negaron a comentar.

''Nuestra política es que no comentamos sobre casos individuales'', dijo Brenda Greenberg, vocera del Departamento de Estado.

Suárez fue invitado por la Sociedad Mobile-La Habana, un grupo con sede en la ciudad estadounidense. La visita iba a incluir discursos ante grupos cívicos locales y sermones en iglesias.

Miembros dijeron que recibieron una llamada el viernes de un funcionario del Departamento de Estado notificándoles que la solicitud de visa de Suárez había sido rechazada.

''Cualquiera que sea la razón, la decisión no ayuda a la reputación estadounidense en todo el mundo por libertad de viajes'', dijo el director del grupo, Jay Higginbotham.

A Higginbotham se le dijo que se le había negado la visa a Suárez por ser diputado al Parlamento cubano.

Perros callejeros inundan las calles

Efe, LA HABANA. Feb. 09, 2004

Más de 200,000 perros callejeros deambulan por toda la isla, a los que se suman los que sus dueños dejan en la vía pública sin control, informó el domingo la prensa local.

Según el Departamento de Higiene y Epidemiología del Ministerio de Salud Pública, citado ayer el diario Juventud Rebelde, se calcula que en el país hay más de 200,000 perros callejeros, la mayoría en ciudades como Santiago de Cuba, Santa Clara, Camagüey y especialmente en la capital.

''Sólo el año pasado más de 30,000 personas fueron mordidas por animales, de ellas la mayoría por perros'', afirmó Raúl Cruz de la Paz, director del programa nacional de Zoonosis.

''No es sólo el fenómeno de los callejeros, también el de los que andan sueltos por la calle, sin control de sus dueños'', sentenció el médico cubano.

''Hemos logrado que el 98 por ciento de los animales que muerden sea observado en busca de algún síntoma de enfermedad, en especial de rabia, por lo cual desde 1976 no hay ningún caso de rabia transmitida por perros o gatos'', destacó.

De la Cruz explicó que "sin embargo, los animales sueltos generan otras enfermedades. Por eso en muchas ocasiones realizamos campañas de recogida masiva, donde muchas veces caen perros que tienen dueño y están sin control ni identificación''.

Apuntó que a estos animales se les envían al Asilo Canino o a otras dependencias de Zoonosis, donde permanecen hasta que son reclamados o adoptados, pero en su gran mayoría son sacrificados.

''Solo en el 2002 se eliminaron 103,237 animalitos, pues no tenemos condiciones para mantenerlos, y aún con el esfuerzo que hacen los activistas de la Asociación de Bienestar y Protección Animal (ANIPLANT) las cifras de adopciones todavía son mínimas'', dijo.

La directora de ANIPLANT, Nora García, manifestó que entre las causas principales del abandono de estos animales se encuentran la enfermedad, la vejez, el cambio de domicilio y el divorcio de sus dueños.

''En todos los casos el animal sufre las consecuencias de los problemas humanos'', lamentó.

Publican en la isla un libro de poeta exiliado

Wilfredo Cancio Isla, El Nuevo Herald. Feb. 08, 2004

En otro escalón de rescate de la literatura del exilio, la editorial cubana Unión presentará mañana una voluminosa antología de la obra de Eugenio Florit (1903-1999) durante el programa de la XIII Feria Internacional del Libro de La Habana.

Orbita --selección de 400 páginas de la poesía y la prosa de Florit-- fue preparada y prologada por el crítico Virgilio López Lemus, investigador del Instituto de Literatura y Lingüística de la Academia de Ciencias de Cuba, quien contó con la aprobación de familiares y amigos del poeta en Miami.

''Es una recopilación por el centenario de Eugenio [Florit] que estuvo en preparación por los últimos tres años'', comentó su hermano y heredero universal, Ricardo Florit, de 89 años. "Vi la selección y aprobé el prólogo porque no había nada inadecuado y se ajustaba a la verdad''.

Ricardo proporcinó además las fotos incluidas en el volumen, que fue impreso en Colombia. Los derechos de autor no han sido abonados.

Esta es la primera vez que se publica dentro de Cuba una antología de la obra de Florit. El último título del poeta editado en la isla fue Asonante final y otros poemas, en 1955.

Florit, considerado una de las voces más sobresalientes de la lírica hispanoamericana del siglo XX, residió en Cuba hasta 1940, cuando se trasladó a Nueva York. Poco después obtuvo una cátedra en el Barnard College de la Columbia University, donde permaneció hasta retirarse como Profesor Emérito en 1968.

Durante la estancia neoyorquina, viajaba con frecuencia a Cuba a visitar a sus familiares. Su última visita a La Habana se produjo en 1959, a raíz de la llegada al poder de Fidel Castro. Nunca más regresó, inconforme con el régimen comunista de la isla.

Vivió en Miami hasta su muerte, a los 97 años. Su papelería y archivos fueron donados a la Colección Cubana de la Universidad de Miami, y sus libros entregados a la biblioteca del Centro Cultural Español de Coral Gables, que lleva su nombre.

La poetisa exiliada Juan Rosa Pita respaldó desde el inicio la iniciativa de López Lemus y le facilitó el acceso a la familia de Florit en Miami.

''Es una antología seriamente realizada, que cuenta con la aprobación de su hermano'', manifestó Pita.

"La gente en Cuba, especialmente los jóvenes, tienen mucho interés en leer a los autores que vivimos fuera, y sería una mezquindad intelectual, una aberración, negarse a que la obra de Florit y de otros autores exiliados se publique allí, en nuestro país, cuando se les aborda respetuosamente''.

Después de una prolongada política de silencio sobre los autores exiliados, el régimen cubano inició una apertura hacia ''la literatura de la diáspora'', facilitando la reaparición de figuras emblemáticas como Lidia Cabrera, Gastón Baquero, Jorge Mañach y Enrique Labrador Ruiz. El primer título de un escritor exiliado fue Poemas Escogidos, de Agustín Acosta, en 1988.

El libro de Florit se presentará el próximo lunes, a la 1 p.m., en la fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña, sede del evento literario.

La feria de este año, dedicada a la cultura alemana y a la poetisa Carilda Oliver Labra, se inició el pasado viernes matizada por el polémico rechazo del gobierno de Alemania a participar como país invitado de honor en protesta por las violaciones de derechos humanos en la isla.

Los organizadores de la feria fustigaron a la Unión Europea por limitar los intercambios culturales y las visitas institucionales como represalia al gobierno cubano por la ola represiva del pasado año contra la disidencia interna.

Tribunal da amparo temporal a 3 balseros

Wilfredo Cancio Isla , El Nuevo Herald. Feb. 07, 2004

Tres de los 11 cubanos interceptados recientemente en alta mar a bordo de un flotante Buick de 1959, no podrán ser devueltos a la isla hasta la tarde del próximo lunes, dictó ayer un juez federal de Miami.

La decisión del juez Federico Moreno protegió --al menos temporalmente-- a Luis Grass Rodríguez; su esposa, Isora Hernández, y el hijo del matrimonio, Luis Angel Grass, de 4 años, pero dejó en manos de las autoridades estadounidenses la suerte de los restantes ocho ''carronautas'' retenidos en un escampavías del Servicio Guardacostas.

Pero más allá del dictamen judicial, el destino del grupo podría definirse en Washington en las próximas horas, con la opción de enviarlos como refugiados a la Base Naval de Guantánamo, dijeron fuentes.

''Hice gestiones por ellos, hablé con la Casa Blanca y creo que hay un consentimiento para que sean llevados a Guantánamo'', afirmó Mel Martínez, ex secretario de Vivienda y candidato al Senado.

Mientras, la congresista Ileana Ros-Lehtinen sugirió que los cubanos ''podrían ser llevados a Guantánamo en las próximas horas'', aunque dijo oponerse a esa política determinada por el convenio migratoria de 1995. ''Haremos todo lo posible para que puedan llegar a un tercer país y eventualmente a EEUU'', agregó.

Por lo pronto, Moreno ordenó que la familia Grass no sea repatriada hasta el lunes a las 5 p.m., y fijó una nueva audiencia judicial, ese mismo día a las 3 p.m., para tomar una decisión final .

La audiencia fue convocada con carácter urgente tras un recurso que presentaron abogados del Movimiento Democracia, quienes pidieron una orden judicial que impidiera la devolución del grupo a la isla. ''Voy a ser muy cauteloso, no quiero errar'', dijo Moreno tras escuchar durante casi una hora a los abogados y al fiscal asistente Dexter Lee.

Este último argumentó que Moreno carece de jurisdicción en el caso debido a que los cubanos no están en territorio norteamericano, e indicó que el Servicio Guardacostas estaría listo para repatriarlos el domingo o el martes.

El abogado Luis Fernández solicitó detener la repatriación de los ''carronautas'', refiriéndose específicamente al caso de los Grass, que estaba en proceso de obtener visas de inmigrantes.

Cuatro de los pasajeros del Buick flotante --la familia Grass y Marcial Basanta López-- figuraron entre las 12 personas que en julio intentaron llegar a la Florida en un camión Chevrolet de 1951.

Lee negó que las visas hayan sido confirmadas por el Departamento de Seguridad Interna (DHS), mientras Fernández señaló que Grass pasó con éxito una primera entrevista y sólo tenía pendiente la conclusión del proceso.

As we've further honed the message for the coffee cups, I have forwarded the new pictures of the message to Doug Kenline for posting here. These cups should end any moral claim that income taxes are acceptable in America. All we have to do is get them out to America's leaders. E-mail me your address, and I'll send you a couple for you and your pastor or congressman. Gene.


I wrote a reply on the comments of Doug Kenline's blog roll where it discusses me last evening to a couple of our opponents about why I don't leave America. The e-mail below is another reason I don't leave. Those of you who are not broke, pray about giving to the Silver Bullet Project. I could use about $10,000 right this second to send out these amazingly powerful coffee cups to America's leaders and tack their ears to the wall on the immorality of the Federal Income Tax so that people like Elizabeth can rest from the IRS one day. Gene.


Mr. Chapman,

Thank you for emailing me back. My bible has it as kidnappers. I went online and found it. I just want to let you know that I think the things you do are wonderful. I myself do not devote myself to anything other than my prayers, college and my family. I do however love to read your emails. I consider you a Christian Hero. The Lord knows we need more men like you. Don't give up just because it seems like no one listens or cares at times. There are many out here who do hear you and pass the word on. I talk about your travels and deeds to my friends and classmates. I forward your emails to anyone I can. I want you to know that I am one of the people that you fight for with the IRS. They have me in a terrible bind with an $80,000.00 lean against my house. I cannot do much at this point but pray and thank the Lord that you fight. Thank you! I hope your Silver Bullet hits them in the heart.

Your in my prayers,
Elizabeth W

Bob Graham has some powerful comments that I respect on his Feb. 29th blog. Robert Ingle, can you get with Bob Graham and get me a copy of his audio book for me? I'd like to hear it when I get to your home in a few weeks. Gene.


Dear Rev. Chapman,

After I spoke to you this morning, I was reminded that Wycliffe's rule is that we avoid all political involvement. For that reason I am unable to help you. In addition to that, although I have experience in Greek, I do not consider myself a Greek expert.

Sincerely,

John Banker


Hi John,

Thank you for your prompt reply. Can you direct me to a Greek translator who might just give me a thumbs up or down on the terms I define on the right side of my web page? They don't have to be identified.

respectfully,

Gene Chapman


Re: Devy Kidd has resigned from her position from WTPC

Tell Bob that I'll take Devy's job for $100 a week plus room and board. But I want Fred Smart, you, Doug Kenline and David Marsh as my staff for $1 a week each. Yall won't have to move to Washington.

Also, I'll need to see a move toward elected leadership or atleast a desire at WTPC. And I need the freedom to blog unhindered. I'll need to start seeing financial reports on the web. And I'll need to see an end to the use of the term "propritary information."

Be good,

Friends:

Freedom Roast 2004 near Sioux Falls, SD has been postponed.

As you may know, I had planned to have "my" Freedom Roast on April 10th, the last Saturday before tax D-day. (I say "my" because I'm hoping to see Freedom Roasts all over the country!)

The events hall I had booked for April 10 just called to inform me that they will not allow
outside hog cookers.

They are also insistent that any food served would have to be catered
by the hall, and to the tune of $ 12.00 per head. Outrageous!

Therefor, I will be re-scheduling the Roast for mid-spring when it will be warm enough so that the event can be held entirely outside. (which has it's advantages for this sort of get together anyway) There was also some concern about Easter Sunday.

I will let the group know when a date is decided. I would appreciate everyone's input on which Saturday this coming spring would or would not work well for you.

The following will let you all know a few details of what I am planning. Please let me know your ideas as well.

1. The event will now be held outside on a large grassy lot.

2. Invitations (flyers) will be mailed to 4523 local businesses within a 10 mile radius of
the event. The flyer will tell the invitees that the event will feature roast hog, BBQ chicken, and side dishes, short speeches from nationally know freedom and Constitution advocates, and a live band to play between talks. Free literature will be available from
each speaker.

3. Each business wishing to attend will fax back the flyer stating how many from their company plan to attend. (maximum of 6 from each business?) We will then fax back to the invitees tickets to the event. One ticket is good for one Freedom Roast plate. Total tickets to be issued will be 9000. First come, first served.

4. The event will be entirely free to the invitees. However, the flyer will offer
$ 25 sponsorships allowing the businesses to display their company banner.

5. I will cover all expenses not covered by the local sponsor fees. However, the flyers will say the event is sponsored by WTP, Jail4Judges, and FIJA and will list each web site.

6. A Freedom Roast 2004 web site will be set up to provide additional event information to the invitees. I will forward the address as soon as it is up. All participating speakers and organizations should forward to my webmaster Brenda, pertinent informational items to be posted to this site. Send to rms@rmsroller-grinder.com


Again, everyone please let me know your thoughts on a Saturday for the event as well as any other suggestions you may have.

Thanks,

Bill Stegmeier


The Doug Kenline Show is picking up an audience, I see. Good job, Buddy. Gene.


I've just been on the phone with John, a Greek translator from Wycliff Bible Translators of The University of Texas in the Dallas, Texas area. He will be examining my material on I Timothy 1:10 ("menstealers") and verifying my conclusions. I hope he will also help us get the clearest possible understandings of a few other words in the coming days and weeks. I told him about Dick Simkanin facing 129 years in prison for his understanding of these type terms in order to share with John and the staff the importance of our work.

John, please look over the right side of this page at the definitions I present and tell me what you think.

Pastor Gene Chapman.


Did you get the chapter and verse right. I could not find it in the New Testament. Please email me back. I will not forward it until I know for sure. I am very excited by this news. I will check my other 2 bibles also.

Respectfully,
Elizabeth Wikberg

________________________________________________

Gene's reply:

It's the word, "menstealers" in I Timothy 1:10.

I hope you will help get out some cups to the leaders of our nation.

"Menstealers" is the Greek word: andrapodistes. It means, "enslaver." In the Greek, it has two formal definitions:

1. One who brings a free man down to slavery.

(One who imposes a labor tax (ie. income tax) upon a free person; thus, under the judgment of the Moral Law of God. A tax is a "burden.")

2. One who steals the slaves of another and resells them.


(Because we are already "bought with a price" (I Corinthians 7:23) and are the slaves of Jesus Christ to be free, we are not authorized under any circumstances to be the slaves of another: "literally, figuratively, voluntarily or involuntarily.")

Before you write off what is now known as the Silver Bullet Project (the distribution of coffee cups and business cards with two simple but laser direct Biblical challenges to the income tax), you may want to consider: In the 1920's it was considered vulgar and wasteful to take a bath in America more than once a week. A company put out 100,000 pamphlets on how good it is to bathe each day, and the new trend of bathing daily began throughout America. This was reported on the History Channel tonight. Gene.


A 4th visit from the IRS today:

4:36 pm ET

Say Doug, can you fix my time zone on my counter to read Eastern Time? Thanks buddy. Gene.


ATLANTA PROJECT: Starting Balance: ($747.94). Deposits: $0.00. Expenditures: ($747.94) 288 Coffee Cups w/ Logo, ($185.50) 5,000 business cards printed on both sides. Total Expenditures: ($933.44). Ending Balance: -($1,681.38).


We just returned from the printer where I bought a second batch of the blue coffee cups with white letters that will end the tolerance of the income tax in the Christian culture of America. I've honed the definitions of slavery down to pin the ears of any theologian to the wall who might raise his or her voice in defense of an income tax.

The cost was another $747.94 for the 288 additional coffee cups. I also ordered 5,000 business cards with blue lettering that carry the same message. The card cost was $185.50. If you would like to help get this material out to American leaders or just the preachers in your neighborhood, send donations to Gene Chapman, c/o Fred Smart, 3242 Harrison St., Evanston, Ill, 60201 with your request. The income tax has zero moral authority with the material we are producing; it's up us all to spread the material if we wish to live free. Gene.


"Enslaver" (I Timothy 1:10): (Greek word: andrapodistes) One who imposes a labor tax (ie. income tax) upon a free person; thus, under the judgment of the Moral Law of God.

Bill tells me that he has a check in the mail for $800 off to Fred Smart for 288 more cups for mailing to our nation's leaders. If you would like to help cover the cost of mailing, please send donations to: Gene Chapman, c/o Fred Smart, 3242 Harrison St., Evanston, Ill. 60201. Gene.


Civil Disobedience is the willful violation of a lesser law in order to ensure that a greater law is not violated. Gandhi did this when he broke the law by picking up salt on the shore of the ocean at the end of his famous Salt March. It is like the man who jumps into the pond where a child is drowning in violation of a sign that reads, "No Swimming," in order to save the child.

Dick Simkanin is about to face a life sentence on April 30th in Ft. Worth, Texas, I'm told. My intent is to sit quietly in front of the Federal Courthouse to block exits and entrances in the hope of being arrested for civil disobedience because a moral law is being violated by our nation's courts. If Dick can do life, I can do an arrest and jail to call attention to this violation of moral law that is now taking place. I am not part of any other organization than slavefreedom.com concerning taxes. If you join me, you join me and are not reflecting the views of any other organization or anyone else on this earth.

The Immorality Of Signing Up For A Social Security Number

My name is Gene Chapman. My parents unknowingly sold me into slavery when I was a young boy. The were ignorant of how evil men in U.S. Government had imposed a trade of freedom for benefits with my life and labor as the commodity.

My parents were just following the cultural norms imposed by the government 'enslavers' (see: I Timothy 1:10). Now, I realize that I must rescind my social security number and resulting relationship to return freedom to myself.

Bill tells me that the Pig Roast is on for April 10th in South Dakota. Any of our people who can make it are guaranteed to get in, he tells me.

Bill offered to buy 200 of the coffee cups for now. I'm prepared to drop everything and get these coffee cups into the hands of American leaders, etc. I'm that impressed with the message.

Gene.

Dear Friends:

The Salt Lake Tribune appears to be assisting the IRS in the agency’s annual tax season fear-mongering. The article is found at:

http://www.sltrib.com/2004/Feb/02222004/business/business.asp

There were some points in the article that I took special notice of. For example, a Salt Lake City CPA who spent 26 years at the IRS said “There are a tremendous number of people out there who aren't even filing returns,".

I find it interesting that she would be quoted as using the words “tremendous number”. Could it be that a “tremendous number” number of people are learning that the IRS has been lying to them all these years?

Later in the article, Mr. Everson compared the need for enforcement to the need for police officers on a highway. He said, "On a highway, you need to have clear signs that you can't go more than 65 mph," he said. "But you still need the trooper under the bridge, pulling over people who are doing 85 or 90."

Right you are, Mr. Everson, but at least the trooper under the bridge can point out to any speeder where in the vehicle code the requirement to abide by a certain speed limit is found. Why has your agency been so suspiciously reticent to inform the citizenry where such requirements reside in your code book (and have instead chosen to answer our questions through enforcement rather than dialogue)?


Unfortunately, and very suspiciously, the IRS chooses to dodge simple questions about the federal income tax, such as: 1. What is the definition of the word Income as used in the Internal Revenue code? Please cite the source of authority? 2. Is the Income tax a Direct tax or Indirect tax? 3. What statute makes me liable for the Individual Income Tax? (Please cite statute and corresponding regulation). 4.What form is required by law to pay the Individual Income tax and where does the law say that? (Please cite statute and regulation). ( Questions courtesy of www.rraymond.org )


I’d be happy to share Mr. Everson’s answers with a few million of my friends and then together we could reduce the “tremendous number” of people who are not filing. Given tight local, state, and federal government budgets, and a citizenry that already pays significant sums of tax, I personally think answering simple questions posed by millions of Americans is much more efficient and cost-effective than trying to scare people into obeying edicts from an agency famous for leg-breaking tactics. But, strangely, the IRS, supposedly existing to serve US, always reaches for the club rather than reach for a chair at the discussion table. If my dog bit me each morning when I went out to feed him, I would stop feeding him and find him a new home.


I am convinced that we found the "silver bullet" concerning the income tax issue in America for Christians. And as the Christians go, so goes the nation. I'm almost beside myself at times, and David Goodyear, my host in Florida, agrees that what I've found is mighty central to turning the law away from the pursuit of taxing labor.

Here it is:

"menstealers" (I Timothy 1:10) - enslaver: (Greek word: an-drop-od-is-tace) one who extracts a tax on labor (ie. income tax) from another person; thus, under the judgment of the Law of God.

Dick Simkanin was an 'andrapodistes' (enslaver), in violation of his religious beliefs. Now, he is in prison for exercising his religious beliefs. Don't we have an amendment somewhere about that?Gene. slavefreedom.com

We are to make about 5,000 business card type information handouts. The coffee cups should be in within a week and a half. This should give me enough to do during March in Atlanta. Gene.


I am seeing that the plan to set up a grouping of interlocking blogs for myself is paying off with a consistent increase in new traffic by an average of 100 new visits per month from previously uninformed visitors about the work. This trend is most invited. Gene.


Pure Democracy, one of the worst forms of government on earth, is three wolves and a sheep deciding what to eat for dinner. Divine Democracy is three wolves transformed into sheep by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and joining with the other sheep to decide what God wants them together to eat for dinner. Gene Chapman <DivineDemocracy.blogspot.com>


You all may wish to sell these coffee cups on e-bay to promote the work in a very public space on the web. Keep in mind that we charge for nothing here at this end. Gene.


If you would like us to mail one of our coffee cups with the powerful tax challenging message on them to your elected officials, please send $10 to cover our cost of production and shipping, along with their address, and we'll get it in the mail. Gene.

Otherwise, the cups are free to all who request them, as we have stock and the funds to mail them.
