Good grief. If a community organization is so blatant in flaunting tax laws, what would happen if a community organizer was elected president? He might even nominate a tax cheat to be over the IRS.... Oh, wait.

I think any test that has a "substantial" standard is far too vague to enforce. If I own 20% of the shares of a company, is that a substantial portion? Probably not. If 20% of my home burned, is that substantial? Probably so.
