Anti-tax whackos invent own language
In June 1998 Arizona resident James McCreary filed a federal lawsuit after being arrested in February for aggravated assault and possession of drug paraphernalia. In his filing, McCreary mentions the name of his apparent mentor. McCreary's actions in court got his conviction reduced by the judge to three misdemeanors, and he was sentenced to three concurrent 60-day sentences in jail.
In August 2001, Paul and Myrna Schuck unsuccessfully used Miller's language during a tax-evasion trial in Calgary, Alberta. They were later sentenced to jail after claiming postage affixed to their clothing and signed by them made them legally equivalent to royalty.
In October 2001, Andrew William Sereda, a naturopath (a believer in natural medicines), went to jail in Calgary, Alberta, for contempt of court when he addressed a judge in Miller's language during his tax evasion trial.
So, don't feel bad if you're a little late filing taxes. At least you're not these people, who have no hope of grasping any sense of normalcy. Let's just remember that there are people out there like this and we must thank the FBI for keeping an eye on them.
