The book about my own "adventures" with the federal extortion
racket, titled "Kicking the Dragon (Confessions of a Tax Heretic),"
is finally in e-book form. It's not up on the web site, or on
Amazon yet, but I thought I'd start by using the low-tech method,
and offer to e-mail it anyone who wants to fling $5 at me. Now, I
know very little about e-book stuff, and don't have a reader
myself, but right now I'm just offering an "MOBI" file of the book,
for Kindle readers.
Those of you who THINK you're pretty much familiar with my case
(but haven't read "Kicking the Dragon"), you probably know about a
tenth of the story. Those of you who think you know the whole story
might know half of it. I will say, a lot of people--especially me--
have trouble reading the book, only because it's so damn
infuriating to see the U.S. "justice system" as it really is, as
compared to the inaccurate garbage we're taught about it in school.
I put the book together while I was in prison, and went to great
lengths to include actual quotes from meetings, letters, my trial,
and everything else, so you can see exactly what happened every
step of the way. Even though the case, and my trial, had to do with
a "legal" issue--which ultimately is meaningless politician-
scribble--a LOT of people who followed the story have said that it
helped them start opening their eyes to the reality of what
"government" is, and how it functions.
Obviously, the story doesn't exactly have a happy ending, or I
wouldn't have had to write the book in prison. But it's definitely
an eye-opener, and despite the inherently unpleasant nature of the
topic (tax law and caging people), I tried to keep most of it light
and flippant. But if you have a pulse, then at least a dozen times
while reading the book, you'll be proclaiming, "They said WHAT?!
They did WHAT?!"
The book has been out of print for years, because with the complete
story, and the relevant appendices, the thing is 488 pages long,
which meant that to print it in hard copy, I had to sell it for way
too much. Now, for the first time in over a decade, I'm making the
gruesome tale publicly available again. It will soon be on
and probably Amazon.com, but right now I'm just
sending this message to THIS e-mail list.
Again this is just for the "MOBI" file, which Kindles read. If you
," or via
"snail mail" to the address below, then I'll e-mail you the file
(which is about 12.5 MB).
