(0)  Please take some time to think about the logic of agorism before mocking others.

(1)  Buying agorist-grown animal-based clothing discriminately is much easier than buying animal-based food products discriminately, because you only need to do the former every few years.  I'm pretty sure no fortress in history has ever surrendered because they suddenly ran out of lederhosen!

(2)  I have other reasons to avoid animal-based food products: fat, cholesterol, toxins, acidity, freezer costs, agricultural inefficiency, etc.  The agricultural inefficiency one also applies to fur / leather clothing, but only like 1/100th as much, especially when there are existing wild animals to be shot.

(3)  Consuming animal-based foods is addictive and thus easier to quit all at once, which is a good enough reason to avoid them even on those rare occasions when you know they're free of government force.  Cravings for beef go away if you don't have any for a long time, but they come back if you have even a little bit.  The same doesn't apply to what kind of jacket you wear!

(4)  I'd be willing to pay more for animal-based clothing just to demonstrate that I'm not a vegan for some retarded "animal rights" reason!


(Further food-related discussion moved to the Tax Resister Diet thread.)

How do you get online and stay true to your tax resister ways? It would seem that would be something hard to do.

It's not about dogmatic absolutism.  Someday in the future we may have our own "underground" Internet in the Free State (ex. a wireless mesh) that connects to mainstream Internet via friendly university backbones or whatnot.  For now, yeah, I pay a little bit of taxes because some products I buy still come from the above-ground economy, including the Internet.

Tax resistance day #2292...

Worst fucking night of my life, health-wise at least.  I have some sort of food poisoning, and it's a miracle it doesn't happen to me more often since I'm living in a dirty ass trailer in the middle of nowhere with pests galore, without refrigeration, with limited hot water, and an electric kettle and a rice cooker (which I also use for beans, etc) as my only kitchen appliances.  I forgot that it was summer and cooked too much buckwheat (with onions, mushrooms, olives, soy, etc) at once, and then I didn't have much appetite, so the leftovers were sitting in a rice cooker for like 3-4 days.  Man, I was so miserable I could hardly crawl to the toilet.  Projectile vomit and diarrhea at the same time!  My stomach and guts felt like they had nuclear explosive devices warming up to go off...  It lasted like 4 hours!  I think I vomited things they fed us in kindergarten!  Even in my drinking days it was never even 1/5th as bad!  Bleh...  Just got done washing the floors.  Have to throw away what I was wearing - including my favorite slippers, and I fucking loved those slippers!  Worst of all, at one point I slipped on my puke and shit next to the toilet, fell down hard, and broke my glasses.  (I'd normally take glasses off to puke, but I didn't have a second to spare, plus with the sickness I could only move and think in slow motion.)  Good thing I have extra glasses, I'm pretty sure those can be fixed as well.

So, what does this have to do with tax resistance?  I want the Fed motherfucker reading this to know not just that I'm living like this to get away from them, but that there's nothing they can ever fucking do to me that's worse than what I'd do to myself to get away from them.  Motherfuckers!  :x

Dude.  You probably cultured a staph infection in that gruel.  Staphylococcus can kill you.  Wiki it.

Possibly that, or a gastro-intestinal virus.  If you puke/shit extensively and then feel fine, and drink a lot of water....and then it happens again, and you think it's all out of your system, and you feel fine again.....and then back to the puking/crapping, that's what it is.  The good thing is that they don't generally last more than a couple of days.  The bad thing is, of course, that it's hard to predict which end needs to face the toilet first.

It was one of the most disgusting and humiliating things that can happen to a human being - so naturally I wanted to write about it publicly ASAP.   :D

I feel a lot better now.  My digestive system is usually rock-solid.  This is the first time anything similar has happened to me, and the cause of it is obvious.  It was a stupid mistake, first cooking too much and then not eating it quickly enough.  If something similar happens to me again in the near future then I'll definitely go to a doctor.

I actually have a refrigerator here that I don't use.  The first thing you need to understand about off-the-grid living is that electric power is finite.   I can run my computer + lights + rice cooker + air conditioning (single room) OR an electric heater (no gas here), but if I want turn on anything else then I have to turn something off first.  If I want to boil water, I must turn off pretty much everything else.  You get the idea.  A fridge is an unnecessary luxury for an off-the-grid vegan, especially up north.  Eventually I'll wind up in a better trailer with a better power system and a humongous greenhouse - that is going to be awesome!

I am already aware of bitcoins and their potential use as an underground agorism currency, thank you.

Also I'm an "open source" / "RealNamesPlease" tax resister, so there's no need to PM - the Feds already know everything (or at least they think they do).  ;)

Tax resistance day #2312...

A junk dealer from a flea market fixed my glasses for free.  I wanted to pay him, but he insisted.  Now I have the awesomest glasses imaginable: $500 Flexon über-frames from my yuppie days, but with one of the "temple arms" (that's what you call the rods that go to your ear) coming from some old used frames that probably cost $1.  You can hardly tell the difference.  Take that, IRS scum!   8)

How can you have a trailer in the woods without paying any sort of taxes on it?

I don't own it, I rent it.  You might argue that taxes are included in the rent, but I'm friends with the owner and I don't think she'd rent it out to just anyone, so it's not a market-based price exactly.  It would probably be empty and overgrown without me.  I keep the place occupied and do some odds and ends to keep it in a good shape for when the owners visit.  Plus the property taxes here are as low as it gets.

People on the Internet are getting dumber!  In the early 1990s only über-geeks like me knew how to use it.

I've been using the internet since the 80's.  I remember using gopher, ftp, email, and VMS systems.

In the 1980s I was a kid living in Moscow, lucky to have a color TV with 5 channels...
