What makes a man become a dentist? Lust for gold? Power? Or is he just born with a heart full of dentistry?
Whatever it is, dentists seem to have a mad compulsion to evade their taxes, like Dr. Wesley Bowden of Dallas.
In pre-trial motions, Dr. Bowden referred to prosecutors and IRS agents as “inland pirates” which “kidnapped” him during his arrest in April on the criminal charges. “I have been forced into a foreign court by deceptive trade practices, threat, duress and coercion,” he wrote. He also says he is not a tax protester, but someone who wants tax law applied legally, and refers to Texas as an “independent nation of free Christian white men like me.”
Sounds just like a guy I would trust to wield sharp objects near my face.
