Pilot Crashes into IRS building in Austin, Texas
Wow. What a coincidence. I was down meeting with my CPA today to try to get my taxes straightened out. And I come home to find this. Apparently, the guy that crashed a small single engine plane into an office building in Austin today did it on purpose. I'm just starting to digest his manifesto.
Excerpts from the manifesto:
"I know I'm hardly the first one to decide I have had all I can stand. It has always been a myth that people have stopped dying for their freedom in this country, and it isn't limited to the blacks, and poor immigrants. I know there have been countless before me and there are sure to be as many after. But I also know that by not adding my body to the count, I insure nothing will change. I choose to not keep looking over my shoulder at "big brother" while he strips my carcass, I choose not to ignore what is going on all around me, I choose not to pretend that business as usual won't continue; I have just had enough."
"...violence not only is the answer, it is the only answer. "
"I saw it written once that the definition of insanity is repeating the same process over and over and expecting the outcome to suddenly be different. I am finally ready to stop this insanity. Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, let's try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well."
Joe Stack (1956-2010)
