So around April 20th or there abouts, I had agreed to comply with the order. The order stated that I was to complete accurate returns. That didn't seem so hard if the government would prove that I am an "employer" and a "person" according to the law. The judge told me if I had any kind of questions that I was to direct them to the government. He said, "Any questions are between you and the government." So I agreed to file accurate returns according to the law.
On May 7th, I sent in an urgent message to the Department of Justice requesting certification under the penalty of perjury by a competent witness that I am an "employer" and a "person" according to the law. They must have popped a gasket in Washington and my answer was a call for my second arrest. Rather than provide me with the tools I needed to get the job done, I was threatened with yet again another kidnaping. In addition, I had done this four weeks before the date these returns were due to be filed.
Of course I had a good idea this might happen but I gave the government the benefit of the doubt. My position is that I would do what was lawful and proper and never be a man who is arrogant and just does what he wants because he wants to argue with the government.
I had then filed a notice of default on the Plaintiffs and I did not show up at the scheduled June 25th hearing as I had treated the order as a void order. Apparently a "oral order" for a warrant was put out against me and they took until August 9th to come and pick me up once again for yet another joy ride in the government SUV to the Sacramento county jail.
I was dragged before "judge" Damrell and I was once again told that "You have the keys to the jail....." which is really a pantload as I wasn't the one who arrested myself. I was told that until I complied with his order I would remain imprisioned. I told the "judge" that as far as I am concerned, unless the government could procuce the taxing statute and the substantive regulations, that I could not fill out the IRS forms as it would constitute lying and perjury.
If I recall there was another hearing a few weeks later where I demanded to be released. I had also informed the "judge" that the internal revenue laws were repealed in 1939 and never re-enacted again. He didn't care. He said something to the effect, "the only law that you need to worry about is my law and that you obey my order." So there I was put between a rock and a hard place to say the least. If I were to comply to get out of jail I would have to sign a document under the penalty of perjury of which I would not believe one thing that I would put on it. It gets worse. Even if I wanted to comply, I was expected to complete three or four years returns in a jail cell when all the data was only retrievable by me. We had a short staff do to the difficult business conditions in aviation and there was no possible way to comply if I wanted to. So there I was in Sacramento County Jail going through this and cut off from my family and friends, with the exception of a few phone calls.
Since we were locked down, (remaining in a two man cell) for 22 out of 24 hours, I had to make an incredible mental adjustment from being very active to watching the time go so slow that a day seemed like a year. I started to pray and study the law some more and I had a lot of time to think things out that I wouldn't have otherwise done as I was completely cut off from all distractions. I wouldn't want to repeat the experience, but it was invaluable in learning how to control my mind and stay focused on what needed to be done.
It was also hard early on to get paper and pencil let alone file any court paperwork. But about five weeks into this fiasco, I was able to get the job done, but without the help of any word processor or law library. I had to had write my motions and then make about seven or eight copies by pencil on a white tablet. Needless to say, I had to keep these motions short as I wasn't going to do any 10 or 15 page briefs in pencil. That turned out to be a good thing.
On Sept 17th, I filed a Motion for Release from Jail, Notice of Fraud upon the Court, and something else I can't remember. I filed the document as an Article III, Section 1 Court of Record. This is an unusual move as it shifts the court into the common law. When I had learned this procedure, I was told that it was only for original suits, counterclaims, and writs of habeas corpus. However, I modified this procedure to include any kind of motion I wanted. To understand this information and the difference between nisi prius courts (USDC and courts of record go to http://1215.org) Since I'm the sovereign, I decided to simply proceed in law.
The paperwork wasn't filed into the court until September 29th and the government was ordered to respond by October 20th. The government response was nothing but nonsense and it's hard to believe these US Attorneys graduated from law school. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but I do understand what my rights as a man are and how to secure them to my benefit. The government's focus was how much time it would take in prison it would take for me to decide that I would fill out the forms. It's like wondering how much bamboo under the fingernails will work until I give a confession.
Thus the hearing was set for October 29th, and a lot of my friends and supporters were going to be at the hearing. However, a few days before I got the feeling the court would change the date, and that's exactly what happened. Around 3:00AM October 28th, a letter from the USDC was slide under my cell door informing me that the hearing was set on that same day. It was one day early so that not too many people would be in the courtroom. It never ceases to amaze me the lengths these people go to in order to hide their misdeeds.
I was taken in front of the "judge" at about 10:00 AM and what happened next was surreal. The "judge" held up the motion that I filed and then berated me on the style and form, and that he didn't understand hardly anything I stated in the motion. My motion wasn't that difficult and it essentially called for the disclosure, once again, for the taxing statutes and the substantive regulations that applies to me. The "judge" also stated that if this was another kind of case he might have me committed for a mental evaluation. But the hearing was supposedly for whether or not the coercive part of the contempt is doing its job in forcing me to comply. Ms. Graham from the DOJ whined to the "judge" that I was in jail barely three months and that's not enough time to force me to comply and that in fact some contempt cases had gone over a year or maybe two. The "judge" however wasn't buying her argument and decided to release me from jail. But he went on to say that my arguments were "frivolous" when in fact all I was doing was again, asking for the taxing statute.
Now I believe he must have been under pressure because my friends had filed a complaint for false imprisonment, writ of habeas corpus, and a 5th Amendment brief and sent it up to the Supreme Court a week earlier. These were 10 lb packages sent to all nine justices. The same thing went to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. These were direct jurisdictional challenges which were of course never answered.
What is difficult about all of this is that we don't know what combination of paperwork worked, but it must have had a cumulative effect. It was outstanding paperwork given the amount of time they had to prepare it for me. And of course my position was simply that I wasn't going to lie on any forms of any kind.
But again, this is a typical example of government arrogance masquerading under the color of law. These courts are evil places to be in and sometimes we can't avoid them when we are taken into custody without lawful warrants, orders, or jurisdiction. It's seems to be based upon raw force of arms and not any lawful reasoning.
So I'm glad to be home and a lot of my friends were very glad and excited for my release. My friend Rick bought me a double Tequila with a salt rim, a beer, and a great Mexican lunch in Sacramento's Old Town.
However, this kind of "judicial" tyranny needs to be corrected. The court system in broken and it is in need of serious repair.
But this was a classic case of the truth versus the lie and of course the truth won out. Yes, I'm worn out from the jail experience. Some have told me that the Sacramento County Jail is one of the worst jails in the world. Some say it has a high suicide rate and it is a very depressing place to be. But my faith in God kept me going and the letters that were sent were very much appreciated.
What seemed to do the job was teamwork. Once we got our system going things happened very fast. Standing upon our rights as free men and women was indespensible in securing my freedom.
Too many in the patriot movement are going into courts wanting to argue their points when these courts won't hear it and can't hear it and the only remedy is simply shifting the burden of proof. It still comes down to the basics. We all are born with rights that come from God and not from any man-made document of law. We must make sure that when we are in the courts that we secure our rights at all costs.
We also cannot stand by will our friends take the hit and we all do nothing but whine about it. We all need more preparation in how to survive trouble when it comes.
Stand on the truth and then let God do the rest.

As I turn and churn my way through the "court" system, there has been a lot of talk about the UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT operating under admiralty. It certainly appears to me that it is a combination of admiralty and war powers. The way these courts function is so absurd it defies one's imagination.
I was talking with another researcher and she told me of one of her clients to made the statement in one of his legal papers that he is not a fish, he doesn't inhabit the sea, and he doesn't live upon the ocean. What was interesting about this man is that his legal document was successful. Now we don't know if the fish statement helped his case, but he did have it in the document and a bunch of us had a big laugh over it. While this sounds ridiculous on the surface just look at what the First Continental Congress stated in 1774.
" Whereas, since the close of the last war, the British parliament, claiming a power, of right, to bind the people of America by statutes in all cases whatsoever, hath, in some acts, expressly imposed taxes on them, and in others, under various presences, but in fact for the purpose of raising a revenue, hath imposed rates and duties payable in these colonies, established a board of commissioners, with unconstitutional powers, and extended the jurisdiction of courts of admiralty, not only for collecting the said duties, but for the trial of causes merely arising within the body of a county"
I was sitting at my computer musing about all of this and I got in one of those moods where I couldn't resist the temptation to write something up on it. Some people who know me said I had too much time on my hands. I agree.
Working with this kind of material is an oppression of one's mind and I decided to just cut loose and show how absurd things can get. This is just for fun and it did not happen any court...I just made it up for my own entertainment and amusement. Although it was inspired by events that happened to me.
Judge: Mr. Thompson
AT: (in wrist, waist, and ankle chains) Are you addressing me? Judge: Yes
AT: I am not a fish.
Judge: What in the hell are you talking about?
AT: I'm not a fish, whale, or any other sea or water creature.
Judge: If your trying to be a smart alleck, I'm going to hold you in contempt of this court.
AT: Sir, I want to make very sure that I don't inadvertently fall into some kind of admiralty proceeding. While were discussing this, I'm not a vessel. So I don't swim underwater and breath through any gills. I am not the Capt. of THE LOVE BOAT.
Judge: This is not an admiralty proceeding! This is a statutory court.
AT: Is this an Article III court?
AT: What statute did I allegedly violate? Remember, I'm not a fish!
Judge: Shut up! Or I'll send you for psychiatriac evaluation for 30 days.
AT: I'll go if you go.
AT: If you say this is a statutory court, where's the statute?
Judge: I can't give you any legal advice. You may hire an attorney, or if you can't afford one, the court will provide one for you.
AT: This sounds fishy to me...no pun intended. First you say this is a statutory court yet I'm not charged with any statutes. I ask for the statutes and you give me an off point answer that you "can't give me any legal advice". And furthermore, I resent being Shanghaied onto this vessel. I do not consent to being Shanghaied and I also resent being treated like a beached whale or sturgeon.
Judge: Mr. Thompson Are you TRYING to go to jail?
AT: If you look up the term "fish royal" in Blacks you won't think I'm so crazy. I am not a fish.
AT: And you had me Shanghaied by the US Marshall Service...I think they called them Brown Shirts in Nazi Germany. Your Brown Shirts picked me up without a lawful warrant. I believe sir, that is some kind of Title 18 offense...that's assuming that the DOJ attorneys know how to read something other than Mein Kampf.
Judge: I'm giving you one more warning Mr. Thompson, I'm not going to tolerate you disrupting this courtroom with your nonsense. You have to have respect and you've essentially thumbed your nose at this court.
AT: That's your opinion, actually the court has to earn respect by helping to preserve the rights of any man or woman who comes before this court. So far, all I can see here is raw power, where the fish is caught into the net and then simply processed. I am not a fish. I am not the LOVE BOAT or any other vessel. I'm not a fiction, I'm not a corporation, I'm not a belligerent, I'm not an insurrectionist. I am not Moby Dick nor am I Captian Hook. I am a man on the land, and I am a neutral and I'm not at war with anyone. And I don't spell my name in ALL CAPS. I learned real English..not this legal babble. I've been Shanghaied into this "court."
Judge: Sir, you had a lawful warrant out on you.
AT: Wellllllllll..............If you did, then why didn't your Brown Shirts produce it?
Judge: They are not Brown Shirts!!
AT: If they picked me up without a lawful warrant, what else am I supposed to think? You had me Shanghaied and YOU violated the law, not me. And now the liability is on you. I'm not that dumb, I know a lawful warrant when I see one. The problem is that I've never seen a lawful warrant. By what authority do you have me Shanghaied?
Judge: You are under the jurisdiction of UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT.
AT: Well, we know this court isn't in law, we know there's no contract...so it can't be equity...so it must be admiralty. I am not a fish. I am not the Captian of the LOVE BOAT or any other vessel...I am not a vessel. I might be a little dingy but I am not a dingy.
Judge: GET THIS SON OF A BITCH OUTTA MY COURTROOM! NOW! REMAND HIM TO THE PSYCHIATRIC WARD FOR 30 DAYS.
Shrink: Mr. Thompson, I'd like to conduct an examination on you. You are going to be under our care (captivity) for 30 days and we are going to evaluate your mental and emotional condition and then give a report back to the judge.
AT: Is he taking a test too?
AT: I'm not a fish.....
Shrink: What did you say?
AT: I'm not a fish.....I'm not a whale...I'm not a sea or water creature..that's what I mean when I say I'm not a fish.
Shrink: What in the world? What do you mean you're not a fish?
AT: I'm not a fish!
Shrink: Are you crazy?
AT: Why, do YOU think I'm a fish?
Shrink: This is the most insane thing I've ever heard.
AT: I'm sorry, but I'm not a fish. If you think I'm a fish..then just say so...we're friends. I'm not here to hurt anyone.
Shrink: I didn't say "I think you are a fish."
AT: Then why were you so surprised when I said "I'm not a fish?" It almost seems that you were disappointed that I'm not a fish.
Shrink: Shut up! Damn it. I'm not disappointed that you are not a fish.
AT: But you really wanted me to be a fish didn't you?
AT: OK, so what's your point? I told you I'm not a fish...so what.
Shrink: But why would you say such a thing?
AT: Look I'm sorry. I also have to include mammals here, so I'm not a whale.........I'm also not a sturgeon. I'm not Moby Dick.
Shrink: That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
AT: Do you have something against a fish with breasts?
AT: Hey, you're supposed to be the shrink...if you make me feel stupid, I'll sue you for lowering my self-esteem.
Shrink: Ok, Ok, let's just try to get along.
AT: Famous words from Rodney King...he's not a fish either. But the cops pounded on him like he was a dead fish...You don't suppose???????????
Shrink: Very funny
AT: It's not funny, you think the beating of Rodney King was funny? Are you a racist? Hey, you don't like black people. I'll sue you for a civil rights violation.
Shrink: I'm losing my patience with you Mr. Thompson
AT: Are you going to beat me like a fish? I'm not a fish....
AT SUPERVISOR'S OFFICE
Shrink (to a superior): I have been visiting with Mr. Thompson, and he says, "He's not a fish." Is that the craziest thing you've ever heard?
Superior: Why no! He's right he's not a fish..he's just telling you the truth..what's the matter with you?
Shrink: DON'T START WITH ME..JUST GET THAT SON OF A BITCH OUTTA HERE, GET HIM OUTTA HERE BEFORE I KILL HIM. TELL THE JUDGE HE'S PERFECTLY SANE AND NEVER, NEVER, SEND THAT JERK BACK IN HERE.
Superior: Hey, we're supposed to keep him for 30 days.
Shrink: We couldn't keep enough drugs into that asshole to shut him up for thirty days without killing him. And don't give me any ideas. GET HIM OUTTA HERE NOW!

This is an interview with Chuck courtesy of Doug Kenline http://www.dougkenline.blogspot.com
Doug has been very instrumental in getting me to use this new media, and for that I am very grateful for his encouragement.
This is the real world folks. As you know, Chuck's business and home were raided, by what I consider, a non governmental goon squad. This nonsense is happening all over the country and these raids are not in the least lawful. They violate every basic right of a man or a woman.
Please take the time to listen to this. And while your listening realize that the internal revenue laws were repealed in 1939 and the seals of the business cards do not match the one authorized by the Government of the United States.

Yesterday I wrote the following but it didn't seem to get posted so I'll include it here.
Update: 11:35AM April 6th, 2004
Chuck Uptergrove just met with the local sheriff. Lt. Michael Salvator was on duty. We have the exchange on video tape and filmed the IRS agents entering and leaving the building.
Chuck made a citizens arrest on Marilyn Collins "revenue officer", however, Lt. Michael Salvator was not willing to take her into custody because he wasn't sure if he had authority to do it. However, he did accept the criminal complaint and stated that the proper authorities will definitely look into the matter.
And this is the problem we have because the law enforcement officers do not have the proper knowledge to do their jobs correctly. We are not blaming the Lt., however, this is a fundamental problem that all law enforcement officers have because they've been extremely uneducated in law.
However, the criminal complaint is now on the record and we will see how the rest of the officials do their job. I'm waiting for a copy of the video and I'll try to make it available as soon as it is ready.
This is probably the most important aspect of attempting to get a lawful remedy. It appears that our law enforcement officers either will refuse to do their jobs and they will had over this criminal complaint to "county" counsel. Which means that the complaint will be turned over to an esquire who will attempt to ignore it. I didn't one a few years ago on a judge and it was simply thrown into the trash. Don't ask how I found out.
Here is how they do the drill. We file a criminal complaint and the sheriff passes the buck to the county attorney, the county attorney tells the elected official to ignore it and usually the problem goes away. They will take the short term heat for the long term gain. This is also done if you want to complain about the bogus "tax liens" at the county recorders. You will complain to the elected official, they in turn will give it to an unelected esquire, and the esquire will ignore the complaint and then nothing happens. This is how they keep the system going. If you do manage to get a case into a court, you'll have no due process because the judge, operating an administrative tribunal rather than a judicial court, simply rules against you and perhaps will fine you for bringing in frivolous arguments. So the system is protected at all levels, first from the sherrif's office, and then by the county counsel. When confronted with their wrongdoings each will point the finger at each other and then nothing gets done.
So in Chuck's case we need to respectfully keep up the pressure.
Here is the contact information.
Madera County Sheriff's Headquarters

Coroner 24 Hours (559) 675-7770
Office Of Emergency Services 24 Hours (559) 675-7770
Now remember, you need to be respectful. These sheriffs don't know the information we do so you'll need to be patient, but an investigation needs to be conducted now to end this fraud upon the people. Also remember, that these Sheriff departments depend a lot of federal money for their day to day operations. You might want to remind him that not one penny of "income" taxes goes to run the Government of the United States. Nothing could be so
simple to explain to him that the internal revenue laws were repealed in 1939 and never again re-enacted or amended.
However, even if I was wrong, and I'm not, the IRS as represented to Chuck Uptergrove via their business cards, does not use the authorized seals
of the Government of the United States.
Chuck is a family man and he is in dire straights as we speak. His property has been stolen and he is struggling to make ends meet.
Tell this sheriff and others around the country that it is time to end this fraud. It is the men and women of the nation who hold the key to effective change. Nothing will change unless we demand it and keep up the pressure.
All the evidence of this fraud is well known and well documented. This income tax fraud has to end now, not a year from now, not two years from now,
it has to be now.
Let's get it done respectfully and peacefully. We as men and women, who are the creations of our Creator, have to have a government that respects our rights. No man has the right to steal from another and it is people who masquerade as the government who are eating out out substance, destroying our families, and ruining our businesses. Our wifes are suffering greatly as they only wish to peacefully take care of their families. My marriage of 32 years has been ruined my activities and my wife wants a divorce. She can't live with me anymore because of all of this nonsense.
Chuck's wife is almost at the breaking point. We are suffering great pain but that is not going to deter us from attempting to make a change for the
better of all of us.
And don't forget about Dick Simkanin who has been in jail for over nine months over an alleged violation of a law that doesn't exist. How much of this garbage are we going to take from a system that takes everything and gives us nothing but tyranny and oppression.
I've spoken to many public officials and not all of them are crooks but they feel helpless because of the way the attorneys and courts operate. We need to put them on notice that we aren't going to tolerate their lawlessness any longer.
It is time to end it now.

I am posting the criminal complaint of the Uptergroves to be presented to the Madera County Sheriff, John P. Anderson. There are a group of people who are going to attempt to hold the Sheriff accountable to duly enforce the law. We as a country cannot continue to live like slaves and sheep to being fleeced at the whim of our elected and non elected officials. Regardless, of the nature of the Government, stealing is wrong and this issue must be addressed now. For too long the "patriot" movement fumbles with codes and regulations with no lasting effect on the course of this massive fraud the IRS and the powers that be instigate against the American people. We are getting bogged down with details and we are getting nothing accomplished.
To this end, this complaint has been filed and we will see how the Sheriff reacts when confronted with this information.
While I have my opinion on how this will go, it is important that all of us hold these officials accountable and make them uphold the law.
At 10:00 AM this morning, Marilyn Collins will arrive at the Madera County Sheriff's office to return Chuck's wallet and other personal property that was included in the stolen truck. At this time the Sheriff will be served with the following complaint and the arrest of Marilyn Collins of the IRS will be demanded.
I will report on the results of this meeting as soon as the information becomes available.

On the morning of April 1st, 2004 the above mentioned persons came to our home and business which is located at the above mentioned address and committed the following but not limited to the following crimes:
All of the above mentioned persons from the IRS have made false claims against us under the color of law without any foundation of fact or evidence of law. In fact, the IRS in its own brochure included in the "court" papers states the following: "You are responsible for paying only the correct amount of tax due under the law-no more, no less." However, we have found that all internal revenue laws were repealed in 1939.
Therefore, there is no law that would make us liable for any tax nor is there any evidence of a contract between us and the IRS.
(See Exhibit A)
The above mentioned persons from the IRS gave us business cards with purported seals that do not match the authorized seals from the Department of the Treasury. Seals are important to establish lawful authority to operate as representatives of the Government of the United States. The above mentioned persons from the IRS do not have any lawful delegation of authority from the Government of the United States.
(See Exhibit B)
We also are enclosing a copy of Treasury Order 150-01, which created 33 District and 4 Regional offices under the Commissioner of Internal Revenue. (Exhibit C) We are also enclosing a copy of TO 150-02,(Exhibit D) which cancelled 150-01, and legally closed all 37 offices created by it. The only offices under the Commissioner today are those enumerated in 150-02, and this “revenue officer” and said agents offices is not among them. Further, note that the Commissioner is not authorized to collect taxes, but if he were , it would only be in the District of Columbia. It is the job of Congress to lay and collect taxes. 4 USC 72 says that all offices attached to the seat of the government are to be exercised in the District of Columbia, and not elsewere, except as expressly provided by law. We do not live in the District of Columbia nor are we on any federal territories or insular possessions. And why would the IRS continue to operate out of offices that have been decommissioned? The only reason we can see is that they are simply crooks and thieves.
We are also enclosing the first part of the Act of 1939, in which Congress repealed all the internal revenue laws. (Exhibit E)
Thus said IRS officers and agents are not a part of the Government of the United States and lack any authority to seize or confiscate any of our property. And as such, said agents or officers of the IRS have committed felonious crimes against us and our property.
Our property was stolen under the force of arms without any lawful authority. Ms. Collins entered our property with no lawful warrant and there was no sworn affidavit of any alleged debt owed to the Government of the United States. There were and still are not any lawful tax liens against us or our property. Any "Notice of Tax Lien" would have to have an abstract of judgment from a court of competent jurisdiction and none exists.
Again, the seals on their business cards show that they are of an unknown agency and an unknown jurisdiction acting under the color of law.
They stole our trucks, equipment, and some were not our property, but they were the property of associates and friends of our family.
These IRS agents set off a chain of events that other contractors and agencies got involved in and they also violated our rights and stole our property. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.
Therefore, we respectfully demand that the Madera County Sheriff investigate this criminal complaint and take any lawful action against those who either directly stole our property or conspired to have our property robbed from us. We demand that our property be returned immediately.
We also demand the arrest and incarceration of said IRS agents for theft and other possible felonies. There is no other way to describe what happened to us at our home.
Charles Wayne, Uptergrove was unlawfully restrained by B. Eltrich for approximately one hour in handcuffs when Uptergrove was not a threat to anyone. Understandably, he was upset about being robbed but he maintained his decorum given the circumstances.
US Marshals appeared with M-16s which is used for military operations and weapons of war are not to be used against peaceful men and women in our own country.
We reserve to amend this complaint as new information is acquired by us.
The Sheriff of Madera County has jurisdiction and that the difference between federal and State jurisdiction is not an issue at this time, as the IRS is not an authorized agency or bureau of the Government of the United States and all actions perpetrated by them have been and are completely outside the law. However, if indeed the IRS was an agency or bureau of the Government of the United States, its authority, according to 4 USC 72 would be limited to the District of Columbia. The Sheriff of Madera County, since he works in law enforcement should know the difference between federal and state jurisdiction and to whom and where it applies.
What the IRS is doing is enforcing a law and/or contract that doesn’t exist and that they are not officers of the Government of the United States. The evidence is quite clear and easy to understand if one takes the time to study the information included within this complaint. We will not tolerate lame excuses from our public officials who say, "That’s not my job," or "You can take that up with the IRS." It is our local public officials' duty to investigate this horrific crime that has been committed against us, a peaceful family attempting to work and be left alone. We value God's laws. We also value man's laws as long as they are not repugnant to the Holy Scriptures, as in this case, "Thou shalt not steal." The IRS operated against our family with no basis in law whatsoever. This is not complicated or complex material we have submitted. Every sheriff and deputy should know this information as it is their job to enforce the law. Since they, by accepting their jobs have a duty not to be ignorant of laws and to whom they apply. We have taken the time to study this subject. And although the information may be difficult to believe for most public officials, the information is readily available and may be checked out in any law library. We as a peaceful man and woman have taken the time to look up these laws as it is our responsibility to understand our obligations if any to the Government, both federal and State. To this end, we believe that we have done everything humanly possible to check and verify our obligations and none exist between us and the Department of the Treasury-Internal Revenue Service. We have provided enough evidence to show that felonious crimes have been committed against us. We demand that the Sheriff investigate these crimes against us immediately and that our property be returned now.
We, Charles Wayne, Uptergrove and Martha Gene Freeman Uptergrove declare pursuant to the Biblical command, "thou shalt not bear a false witness" that the foregoing is true and correct to the best of our knowledge and belief.
