JB3: Well, if you study Henry and his tactics, then put those tactics into your own personal grubbing arsenal, you'll be far along the path of being nominated for "Master Grubber". He is clever, devious, and historically accurate. A good combination.

Hmmmm you took the Titanic can I come with something worse?

How about 1913 the Income Tax Amendment passed and the Federal Reserve Act is also passed. I think that tops the Titanic.

1916 U.S. Supreme court (in the Brushaber Case) says the Income Tax Amendment didn't really amend the Constitution, it just clarified it by classifying an income tax as an indirect or excise tax.

Yea it's an indirect tax, that's the ticket.
