You know bitcoin is going mainstream when imprudent socialist kids have arrived to discuss how bitcoin shouldn't be used for tax avoidance. Got to love it.

Or he's an IRS employee. Wink

Thank goodness I'm not a US citizen or permanent resident then. Grin

You gotta love the way a show like Boston Legal carries that trace of a libertarian streak, periodically sticking it to both Republicans and Democrats, as they both deserve. Pertinent to this thread is the episode in which Denise (Julie Bowen) is being persecuted by the IRS and gets arrested over a $400 arrears. Now, the IRS is nasty, but mostly probably not that nasty. How often would they chase you up, cuff you and cage you over $400? Surely even the IRS would just impose a penalty fee and demand it. Now, if they audit you and expressly accuse you of tax evasion to the tune of $xxxxxx, that's another matter entirely. And while we may think the OP is a troll and morally disagree with what he said, there is no doubt that you could be in serious trouble if the IRS is auditing you for tax evasion...

Honestly I believe that most peoples idea of how government works, or at least the legal system is mirrored from shows like BL, or CSI, or whatever. Shows everyone working for the govt is good, and intelligent, and cool... 'cept the IRS, they will hunt you down and do nasty things to you, even if you're the star of the show... Thats TV 'programming' for you...

And don't forget all the cuss'n that these bitcoin people do.  There is a lot of dirty words that I read in the internets.  It doesn't reflect well on all these bitcoins for all the cuss'n to be going around.  I don'ts know why people can't talk all civil like.  That feller that posted at the beginning does't have much to complain about since people cannot evade taxes with the bitcoins.  It's clear as day that the peoples can curse all they wants on the internets.  It don't look pretty though.
