Craig T. Nelson: I'm Not Paying Taxes Until Politicians Take Responsibility and Begin Representing Me, and I Encourage Others to do Likewise
Update: Vid Added

On Glenn Beck, encouraging Beck to promote the idea of a statewide California tax strike (or a national tax strike? He's not clear), stating he's seriously considering not paying taxes anymore.

He's more trying to push the idea and get a movement behind it rather than being the guy who actually does this first and gets carted off to tax-jail.

Pretty wild. I'm sure there'll be video later, which I'll post.

I had no idea he was a conservative. He's not saying he is, but he seems to be of that ilk.

I wonder what the legality of this is. I believe there are (largely unenforced) laws about agitating to defy, say, the draft; I wonder if the US Code contains any similar law about agitating for tax defiance.

Then reads the Declaration of Independence. Stuff about usurpation.

Asked if he's prepared to go to jail for this, says, "I am going to jail."

Video:

Correction: It wasn't Craig T. Nelson. It was Brian Dennehy, who played "Norm" on Cheers.

Not really. That's an in joke that started yesterday after I mentioned Brian Dennehy and people kept praising him for his work in movies he wasn't in. He was confused with M. Emmet Walsh and others, until wisenheimers started making a joke about it and started "mixing him up" with Yakov Smirnoff and Mary Lou Retton.
