Facebook's Eduardo Saverin: I'm not a tax-dodger

cjoki
WTF?

this is what has me more concerneed...

"It will then be up to the person to prove to the IRS that they've left the country for good reason or the government will tax their future investment gains no matter where they live."

What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

As for this guy OWING taxes, I did not see that he owed any back taxes so I will assume he is current. If he gives up his citizenship, even before landing a big wind-fall profit, any moneys he has will fall under the tax rules for the country he lives....or so I believe.

Does anyone here honestly KNOW tax law for the USA and his new home country?

I smell class warfare stoked by congress and inflamed by the uneducated.

So can we get our money back?

All this money spent chasing this nonsense....but maybe there is more than we know like this chart shows.

As you can see, dinosaurs all had a problem with climate change beleived to be caused by Coal Fire Plants, Automobiles, Smoking, Drinking, Bathing, Flatulence, Gay Couples, Straight Couples, Abstenance, Tiny Bits of Broken Glass, Religion, Science and A small flatworm named David.

Did I miss anything else...?

LOHAN's fantastical flying truss cleared for lift-off

cjoki

currious...ok maybe stupid.

Is it possible to use 2 balloons in a stacked configuration? one on top of the other...with maybe a flexible netting used on the bottom balloon to serve as a anchor for the top balloon.

This would allow for more lift while still using the angled truss launch andyou would have a great headline....LOHAN is stacked!

The only ice I'm concerned about melting...

...is in my glass and soaked in a bath of bourbon and a hint of cola.

WAITER!!!!

SOPA is dead. Are you happy now?

cjoki

the point was...

..to kill a bad bill. This was not a movement to say piracy was OK, or even to say we do not recognize it as an issue...we do.

But the bill made it to easy to step on due-process and free speech.

As to whether we continue the discussion in a calm rational tone or through fits of rage is beside the point. It is more important to keep the discussion, open and honest, and in the best interest of commerce and civil rights.

Voyager 2 finally agrees to a long hard thrust

I can't help but think they will move from the heliosphere and into an interstellar spaceway, causing a major pile up that results in the human species being enslaved to an interstellar freight company.
