Dear Trusted Friends,

As many of you know, HSUS has created a firestorm of activity nationwide,
striving to eliminate our rights to own and enjoy animals, raise animals for
food sources, and participate in wildlife management practices such as
hunting, fishing and trapping. They are targeting animals used in research
as well as sports, entertainment and as the family pet. They are a runaway
train set to destroy agriculture, sports, wildlife management and the owning
of pets as we know it. The unknowing public is contributing heavily to their
coffers, thinking they are “helping the poor animals” when in fact they are
feeding the piranhas that are eating away at animal ownership, use and
enjoyment.

Recently, a ballot initiative was filed in Missouri against our dog breeding
industry. Called the “Puppymill Cruelty Protection Act”, the measure does
anything but protect animals. It virtually eliminates our freedom of choice
to participate in the free enterprise system and enjoy animals, regardless
of the state-of-the- art care they receive. Although the HSUS has targeted
other states regarding agriculture and hunting interests, this is the first
ballot initiative aimed specifically at dog owners and breeders. Missouri
has been extremely strong in killing their proposed legislation at the state
capitol since the early 1990’s, and because of that, they are planning to
sway the public to vote for their measure in the November 2010 general
election. They will stop at nothing to reach their goal.

They have awakened a sleeping giant and we are fighting back! The
agriculture groups in Missouri have come together in a massive coalition to
fight their proposal and have held numerous meetings to plan strategy. Our
organization, MoFed (Missouri Federation of Animal Owners) has formed a PAC
(Political Action Committee) to raise funds to fight the ballot initiative
put forth by HSUS.

What can you do? Your state and interests may very well be next. We are
asking for your help.

We are asking you and those in your circle of trusted friends to follow the
steps below explicitly. By bombarding the IRS with letters and our elected
officials with e-mails, we will call attention to the arrogant practices of
the HSUS. We MUST fight back NOW or our battles may be over. It’s time we
stand up in unison and say “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!” We refuse to let those who
are guided by misinformation and the lust for power take over our
agriculture, wildlife management and ownership and enjoyment of animals.

Won’t you join with us in our fight to take back our leadership role in
animal care and well-being? Each letter and e-mail will make a difference.
Enough letters and e-mails may very well show that David can defeat Goliath
when he is armed with facts and sheer determination!

HOW TO SPAY AND NEUTER THE HSUS!

(A “STRATEGIC PLAN”)

REFLECTIVE THOUGHTS: The IRS and the Tax Code “DID IN” Al Capone. If the
HSUS has played “fast and loose” with the Tax Code limitations on lobbying
by a public charity, such careless arrogance could “bite” the HSUS!
Wouldn’t it be a “SHAME” if the IRS and a growing number of Members of
Congress began associating the catch-phrase of “TAX CHEAT” with the
HSUS!?!?!?!? !

ULTIMATE GOAL OF STRATEGIC PLAN: IRS REVOCATION AND WITHDRAWAL OF THE
TAX-EXEMPT, PUBLIC CHARITY STATUS OF THE HSUS.

PREPARATORY GOAL: CREATE A TIMED AND ORECHESTRATED “FLURRY” OF REQUESTS FOR
THE IRS TO INVESTIGATE ALLEGED EXCESSIVE AND UNDER-REPORTED “LOBBYNG
ACTIVITES OF THE HSUS.

MEANS TO ACHIEVE ULTIMATE GOAL:

STEP 1: MOTIVATE SEVERAL THOUSAND RESPONSIBLE BREEDERS; MEMBERS OF THE
AGRICULTURE COMMUNITY; AND EMPLOYEES, SUPPLIERS, RELATIVES AND FRIENDS OF
BREEDERS AND MEMBERS OF THE AGRICULTURE COMMUNITY FROM ALL OVER THE U.S. TO
SEND LETTERS, BY CERTIFED MAIL, TO THE IRS TAX FRAUD OFFICE, AND REQUEST THE
IRS TO INVESTIGATE THE HSUS “LOBBYING ACTIVITIES.”

STEP 2: EITHER SCAN AND E-MAIL A COPY OF THE U.S. POSTAL CERTIFED MAIL
RECEIPT FOR THE LETTER SENT TO THE IRS TAX FRAUD OFFICE TO
<mailto:f.losey@insightbb. com> f.losey@insightbb. com, OR mail copies to
FRANK LOSEY, 2029 TAMPA BLVD., NAVARRE, FL 32566. (Temporary Holiday
Address.)

STEP 3: MOTIVATE THOSE SAME SEVERAL THOUSAND RESPONSIBLE BREEDERS; MEMBERS
OF THE AGRICULTURE COMMUNITY; AND EMPLOYEES, SUPPLIERS, RELATIVES AND
FRIENDS OF BREEDERS AND MEMBERS OF THE AGRICULTURE COMMUNITY FROM ALL OVER
THE U.S. TO SEND E-MAILS TO THEIR TWO U.S. SENATORS AND TO THEIR RESPECTIVE
U. S. REPRESENTATIVE BETWEEN CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEARS DAY. (See Boilerplate
E-Mail.)

STEP 4: FRANK LOSEY WILL “FOLLOW-UP” TO APPROPRIATE OFFICES WITHIN THE
DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY WITH THE “PAPER TRAIL” OF THOUSANDS OF LETTERS
MAILED TO THE IRS TO INCREASE THE PRESSURE ON THE IRS TO INVESTIGATE WHETHER
THE HSUS HAS JEOPARDIZED ITS TAX-EXEMPT, PUBLIC CHARITY STATUS BECAUSE OF
“TOO MUCH LOBBYING ACTIVITY.”

BACKGROUND OF STRATEGIC PLAN:

. I have worked in Washington DC as a Registered Lobbyist for nearly
20 years, and am familiar with “Lobbying Rules,” and how “Lobbying” is
effectively and successfully done directly, indirectly, casually, and very,
very subtly. HSUS has mastered the “Art of Lobbying.” That is why “using
their own words” may be the most unexpected and successful way to derail the
“HSUS Freight Train of Destruction. ”

. I respectfully believe that responsible breeders throughout the
U.S. do not have the financial wherewithal to counter and go against the
well-financed and sophisticated “Lobbying Machine” of the HSUS. That is why
breeders and all others with a vested interest need to be “creative” and go
after the Achilles’ Heel of the HSUS – – its arrogant and blatant “lobbying
activities.”

. For the last 18 months, I have downloaded “smoking gun” documents
from the HSUS Website – – every one of the referenced documents and quotes
in the Overview Summary were found on the HSUS Website, and they are now
part of my 300+ page “Master File.”

. My trial experience as a Military Judge, Prosecutor and Defense
Counsel left me with the indelible knowledge that a “Paper Trail,” such as
documents downloaded from the HUS Website, will often destroy the seemingly
impregnable credibility of a witness, accused or adversary.

. I now have a very damning “Paper Trail” that has been downloaded
from the HSUS Website over the last 18 months – -the “smoking gun!”

As is so true in all phases of life, “Timing is Everything.” That is why
the “Strategic Plan” must be executed with flawless precision in a short
period of time so that HSUS will not have time to react effectively to blunt
the call for an IRS investigation. For the Strategic Plan to have the best
chance for optimum success, two things must occur between now and the end of
December.

First, several thousand letters need to be mailed to the IRS Tax Fraud
Office between now and Christmas Eve. This will allow a week for me to
receive copies of the Certified Mail Receipts so that I will be able to
“follow-up” with the Treasury Department, which has oversight over the IRS,
in early January.

Second, several thousand E-Mails need to be sent to your respective two
Senators and U.S. Representatives between Christmas and New Years Day.
(Typically, those Offices are shut down for the Holidays or only have a
skeleton crew.) Thus, when they open up for business after the First, many
Members of Congress will be briefed by their staffs about “all of the
E-mails received from constituents concerning the HSUS.” “NUMBERS MATTER”
AND THE SHOCK EFFECT OF SO MANY E-MAILS, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE BOILERPLATE
(This is an exception to the general rule not to send form letters), WILL BE
“ATTENTION GETTERS,” AND MAY RESULT IN AT LEAST SEVERAL MEMBERS OF CONGRESS
CONTACTING THE IRS AND ASKING THAT IT INVESTIGATE THE LOBBY ACTIVITIES OF
THE HSUS. Thus, we will have two “waves” hitting the IRS in a period of 2-3
weeks, and if the IRS does not promptly act, we will have the “Certified
Mail Receipt Documentation” and the opportunity to escalate the “Lobbying”
issue to a more senior level in the Treasury Department that has oversight
over the IRS.

Reflect for a moment on this thought: If HSUS has to defend its actions
against the IRS, it will throw the HSUS off it “game” at the Beginning of
the Year when it plans to go full court press at the Federal Level, as well
as at the State Level – – a potential mega-momentum changer!

I would appreciate if you would consider taking 60 minutes of your time to
try and neuter and spay the HSUS by downloading the three attachments;
finalizing a boilerplate letter to the IRS Tax Fraud Office and sending the
letter by Certified Mail; sending boilerplate E-Mails to your respective
three Members of Congress; and then sending me a copy of the Certified Mail
Receipt. Thank You.

This IS a good idea.

The below was just posted on pet-law by the list moderator, and may be crossposted. It answers a lot of questions some people may be legitimately asking as to how this works (or if it works.)

If you haven’t gotten that letter out to the IRS, please do it today!
And – sending in just the cover letter will be sufficient, referencing the larger document, as was discussed on other lists, so you can save on printing costs and postage.

crossposted message below:

I expect some of us are wondering how worthwhile it is to do this. I
can answer that question.

As it happens, we have a contact, a professional who is an expert on
exactly this issue — the tax status of non-profit corporations. Trust
me, this person KNOWS how these things work.

We asked this individual about this campaign. Here are paraphrases of
the responses to several specific questions:

============ ========

Q. Does the IRS care about these things?

A. Yes, ABSOLUTELY. EVERY complaint about abuse of the tax code must
be investigated.

Q. Isn’t it enough to just poke the IRS once or twice and let them
take it from there?

A. NO, that isn’t a good approach. With one or two complaints it can
be like cleaning up your bathroom closet: You know you ought to do it,
but if you don’t get to it today, nothing terrible will happen and
you’ve got more important stuff to do. But then tomorrow, some other
crisis comes along … maybe you’ll never get to hanging up the toilet
brush and picking up the Tidy Bowl bottle at all ….

The more letters the IRS gets complaining about a specific problem
corporation, the more likely they are to take action.

Q. So more complaints means more certain and faster action.

A. Yes. But it goes beyond ‘more certain and faster.’ The more
complaints there are, the higher the level at which the problems will
be considered.

If there is a serious problem, you WANT high level attention because
that’s where the big decisions get made. Get those top managers on
board with thousands of letters and if the complaint is found to be
justified, the top levels can and will do more.

It is the IRS’s job to collect taxes. Nothing pleases them more than
to find a real tax cheat, turn him upside down and shake. Top
management shakes a lot harder than lower levels.

Q. Do we have to get our contacts (letters, etc.) exactly right?

A. The IRS are professionals. Tell them about the problems (in this
case your view that a corporation claiming to be a charity is nothing
of the sort), give them whatever you have, and they will take it from
there.

Even stories are good, as long as they describe significant actions by
the corporation that do not represent a valid charitable purpose. When
telling stories, DO focus on the specific corporation and be as clear
as you can about what they’re doing, but DON’T feel that if your
format isn’t perfect or a word is misspelled, they’ll toss your
complaint.

Q. What if I don’t have any new facts?

A. Then just tell the IRS that in your opinion this corporation does not
meet the guidelines for a charitable exemption. Again, NUMBERS COUNT.
One letter ought to be enough to get basic checks done, someday.
Thousands, however, WILL get a serious investigation started.

============ ======

SEND THAT LETTER, folks. Do it now. If you can’t or don’t want to
write your own letter, then go to:

http://www.saova.org/SpayNeuterHSUS.html

OR

http://www.adoa.org/documents/overview_summary_excessive_lobbying.doc

http://www.adoa.org/documents/cover_letter_irs_fraud_division.doc

And print and send the ‘cover letter’ form letter — second item on
both lists, above, edited to provide your personal information.

Frank Losey says: “The most important priority is for letters to be
sent to the IRS Office in Fresno,CA (The two line address is the
address – – no street address.)

“Ideally, the letters should be sent by Certified Mail, and a copy of
the certified mail receipt should be sent to me by E-Mail or to 2029
Tampa Blvd, Navarre, FL 32566 or FAXED to 479-299-4417. ”

Finally, please FORWARD THIS INFORMATION to other lists and individuals.
