      Proposed IRS Rule a Threat to the First Amendment
      by Wes Vernon
      Thursday, Feb. 1, 2001

      WASHINGTON - Whenever something or someone is successful, there is some
      busybody in this city scheming to rein in it/him/her. In some cases, there
      is the theory (as in the Clinton administration's crusade against Internet
      entrepreneur Bill Gates) that if someone besides the government is making
      lots of money, there must be something sinister about it.

      Other instances involve self-styled advocates of "democracy" who begin to
      suspect that perhaps there is a little too much "democracy" going on.
      Government must intervene.

      The latter appears to be the case in a proposed IRS rule. Listed as IRS
      Announcement 2000-84, we are informed that "the Internal Revenue Service is
      considering the necessity of issuing guidelines that would clarify the
      application of the Internal Revenue Code to use of the Internet by [tax]
      exempt organizations."

      The above is an exerpt.
