Good On Her (and good luck to her)
Melissa Etheridge is refusing to pay all of her taxes, saying she'll keep the $500,000 state taxes she hands over because she's "not a full citizen" after the passing of the retarded amendment, Proposition 8, this past Tuesday.
Like the article says, she needs a really good tax lawyer, regular lawyer, and any other high-priced legal-types to help her because this will likely end up with her in some hot water. I can't see her being thrown in jail, but you never know. Hopefully the thousands of other gay folks there - ideally high profile folks - will support her and do the same.
They're mad as hell and not going to take it anymore, and they're right, which, as Bill HIcks said, "gives it the force, that extra oomph".
