I dare say that discussions on CI are monitored by sinister parties outside the Catholic, i.e. by folks who are not Catholic, who have no interest at all in Catholic issues or Catholicism, much less the highly sectarian and nuanced comments of certain Catholic trads about their faith. But these same people might be very interested in learning what some of you think about the IRS, and what constitutes taxable income on the part of individuals, and what kinds of income are justifiably taxable by our overreaching government, etc. I would just suggest that certain of you be careful about what you post on the subject, one way or the other. These shadowy figures may very much be interested in things you may reveal about your understanding of tax law and justified taxing practice. They could very easily, IMO, use material posted unwisely or carelessly to move on certain individuals, not to mention CI itself. My concerns may entirely unfounded, but, on the other hand, they may not.
