Just think! All of those tax cheaters over the years! All they had to say was "There's no law against it!" That's the only defense they needed!

So you title your thread with a statement that's obviously wrong, and then you expect people to watch some 2 hour movie? Great selling there.

Yeah, I believe it's in the Book of Certainties, right after the law that says we must die.

Well that is not law, that is the internal revenue code. And since neither the constitution, nor the bill of rights was amended to state income tax was a necessity, and since the IRS is actually an off-shore private company, it isn't legal. Just because some organistaion with guns says half your paycheck is theirs doesn't make it so.
And many people do get off in US courts without having to pay the income tax. It all depends on the jury.

So you're routinely taxed for something that isn't even stated in law? What a fascinating loophole!

There are a few cases covered in this movie, pretty good film about the non-legal status of the income tax in America. From here you can research those cases if you so choose.

Some people can't handle fat jokes. Some can't handle jokes about abortion or AIDS or any number of things. I joke about damn near everything. But, I hate tax jokes. I fast forwarded thru most of John Oliver on Sunday.
Well, at least its over for another year. :P

My humor program is fine. The cartoon is not funny. The dog is cute and innocent. It might cause a little girl to giggle. A grown man probably not.

Especially after the shit I been through today. No one to blame but myself I guess, but why does this tax shit have to be such a pain? I don't feel very free, and if the joke is that one cannot "unsubscribe" from the IRS, well no shit and that is not fucking funny.

I think there's plenty of grown men that would probably disagree with you.

At least (a good) part of your taxes go back to you in the form of reasonable to good services. You all should see how it goes down here...

If you check the logic of the Sysyphus cartoon above, all the guy has to do is stop pushing and he'll never have to pay tax.
