Subject: SLS: The Federal Zone
Bcc: sls, friends

All Internet websites which host, or link to,
"The Federal Zone: Cracking the Code of Internal
Revenue," are now under active investigation
for theft, conspiracy, and common law copyright 

No one ever received the author's prior permission
to host this book on the Internet, so they are ALL
violators of the copyright restrictions which are
clearly stated in the Preface of that book.

It is not abbreviated "The Fed Zone."

Thank you for asking.

/s/ Paul Mitchell,
Candidate for Congress
