    Default Guy writes anti-tax manifesto and crashes his plane into IRS building

    Well, first he set fire to his house, then crashed his plane.

    Here is his manifesto, authorities are indicating it's authentic:

    Statesman.com : Internet note posted by man linked to plane crash

    And the teabaggers have their first martyr.

    Official: Plane crash pilot left anti-IRS Web note

    AUSTIN, Texas – A pilot furious with the Internal Revenue Service crashed his small plane into an office building that houses federal tax employees in Austin, Texas on Thursday, setting off a raging fire that sent workers fleeing as thick plumes of black smoke poured into the air.

    A U.S. law official identified the pilot as Joseph Stack and said investigators were looking at an anti-government message on the Web linked to him. The Web site outlines problems with the IRS and says violence "is the only answer."

    Federal law enforcement officials have said they were investigating whether the pilot crashed on purpose in an effort to blow up IRS offices. The Web site featured a long note dated Thursday denouncing the government and the IRS in particular and cited the Austin man's problems with the agency.

    All the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing.

    At least one person who worked in the building was unaccounted for and two people were hospitalized, said Austin Fire Department Division Chief Dawn Clopton. She did not have any information about the pilot. About 190 IRS employees work in the building, and IRS spokesman Richard C. Sanford the agency is trying to account for all employees.

    Flames shot out of the building, windows exploded and workers scrambled to safety after the blast. Thick smoke billowed out of the second and third stories hours later as fire crews battled the blaze.

    "It felt like a bomb blew off," said Peggy Walker, an IRS revenue officer who was sitting at her desk in the building when the plane crashed. "The ceiling caved in and windows blew in. We got up and ran."

    I like his note, not his methods.

    I love how the liberal news agencies portray this guy as an anti-government tea-bagger upset about paying his taxes.

    After reading his actual manifesto, it appears the guy was literally an anti-Christian communist with Bush Derangement Syndrome.

    This sort of aberrant response model really doesn't jive with either side of the political game.

    Dude obviously felt marginalized to the extent that he felt violence was the only logical response. It's pretty clear that this type of thinking is clinically unrelated to political stance.

    How do you guys know he was no tea partier? You and Merc are trying to make it sound like an elite club, when most people understand it was just a congregation of wackos who watch too much Fox news. Just because his beliefs don't mirror your own doesn't mean that he was OBVIOUSLY any less of an anti-gov't tea bagger.

    And anti-Christian? A communist who doesn't want to pay taxes?

    It's funny how you guys take this so personally...

    The guy ENDS the note decrying capitalism, and you think he would be in a Tea Party? He may have been a tax protester, but that isn't the same thing. Don't be a douche. Did you even read the note?
