A young George H.W. Bush, top, with one of his little terrorists.
Could the photo at left be the same G.H.W. Bush, outside the
School Book Depository just after the murder of John F. Kennedy?
Just asking …
He says he wasn’t there that day.
“ … Finally, do you know people who consider the events of November 22, 1963 to, in their minds, “reflect the very best of the American spirit?”
You say almost nothing, ever, about the Kennedy assassination, even skipping over it in your own memoir, which details much more trivial events of the same year.
Why is that? And why then, in your eulogy for former President Ford, a member of the increasingly-discredited Warren Commission, did you go out of your way to oddly praise him for promoting the increasingly-discredited “single bullet theory?”
You said: “After a deluded gunman assassinated President Kennedy, our nation turned to Gerald Ford and a select handful of others to make sense of that madness.
And the conspiracy theorists can say what they will, but the Warren Commission report will always have the final definitive say on this tragic matter.
Why? Because Jerry Ford put his name on it and Jerry Ford’s word was always good.
Why did you, so bizarrely, smile when you uttered those words?
— Russ Baker, author of “Family of Secrets”
“His life is a testament that public service is a noble calling …. his humility and his decency reflects the very best of the American spirit.”
— President Barack Obama, bestowing
Medal of Freedom Award on George H.W. Bush, Feb. 15, 2011
“Let’s face the fact, this country
needs a revolution every bit as much
as Hasni Mubarak’s Egypt needed a revolution.
The question is, what will it take?”
— Kevin Barrett

Karl Meyer is one of our country’s most knowledgeable counselors and practitioners of strategies and methods for maximizing war tax refusal, while minimizing negative consequences, such as job loss, seizure of assets, or criminal prosecution.
He has successfully refused payment of almost all federal income taxes that might have been claimed from him for 49 years, since 1960.
In 1966, he wrote the first leaflet on reasons, methods and potential consequences for telephone excise tax refusal, which sparked a mass movement during the Vietnam War.
In 1968 and 69, he authored the first articles and pamphlets on methods and consequences of claiming extra allowances on W-4 Forms in order to prevent withholding of military taxes from wages and salaries.
This opened the way for thousands of wage earners who refused war taxes during the Vietnam War.
In 1971, he served nine months in federal prison and fifteen months on parole, essentially for his role as ringleader of the W-4 resistance movement. In 1984, trying to spark a mass movement to resist the new $500 penalty for so-called “frivolous tax returns”, he filed 365 daily tax returns, to many different IRS offices around the country, and gained national attention for the issue after the IRS fined him $140,000 for a total of 280 of those returns.
The IRS succeeded in collecting only $1000, by seizing and auctioning a secondhand station wagon.
Across the span of a half century of effective war tax refusal, the IRS has collected less than $1200 of an estimated total of about $250,000 that was or might have been claimed from him, not to speak of added penalties and interest — a successful collections rate of about ½ of 1%.
At 71 (in 2009, the same age as John McCain) he continues in not filing returns and not paying federal taxes on income as a self-employed carpenter (semi-retired).
