Some bits and pieces from here and there:
- The radical personal finance podcast has been broadcasting some very interesting material lately, including
- Leanne Brown has published Good and Cheap: A SNAP Cookbook — a handsome guide to cooking tasty, nutritious meals on a budget — that’s available for free on-line.
- Contrepoints has an interesting recap of the original bonnets rouges of Brittany, from 1675 (in French).
- Cindy Sheehan puts in another good word for war tax resistance at her blog: “Petitions, Marches, and Rallies, Oh My!” — “I had a showdown with the IRS and the IRS was the one that blinked. I am not a legal expert or expert on WTR, but it’s lucky that I know some people who are and I also know that they would be happy to answer any questions you have. I think the time has long passed that we just give lip service, or shoe leather to what we believe in. It’s time to take a stand. If you oppose war, why do you pay for it?”
- At his Forbes blog, Peter J. Reilly reminds people to consider whether their heirs have tax debts before designating them as beneficiaries (“Don’t Leave Money To Children Buried Under IRS Liens”).
- American conservative radio show host Jason Lewis walked off the air after announcing that he would be “going Galt” to avoid paying taxes (or, I suspect, mostly to publicize his new project: galt.io).
