    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Tigger ole boy, you one very strange ranger. If we are a nation of free sovereign peoples, telling them they cant leave on vacation, or business, or any other reason, strikes me as .....unwise. I would foresee repercussions.

    You should read the thread before commenting.

    Has the Obama administration so badly warped you mind as to think those people are evil?
    Read the thread. If you make another highly ignorant comment to me, I will rip you a proverbial new one.

    Also, unlike the opening poster, read the law that's being cited.

    I have extremely little patience with people who assume whatever they wish to be true rather than examining the facts. And you right now, just did that.

    I wasn't aware that people who were working and living outside of the US were prohibited by law from selling US assets either to domestic parties or foreign. Please show me where is in the statutory law.
    I wasn't aware that people who were working and living outside of the US were prohibited by law from receiving interest and dividends from equity and debt holdings of US companies. Please show me where is in the statutory law.

    Try thinking before posting next time.

    Actually, if you bothered to do any research whatsoever, tax evasion stems from people at poverty levels to the super rich. Manual laborers who get paid under the table cause the deficit to rise. As do people who deposit funds from sales of US assets into foreign accounts. Try being less of a partisan hack job and do a little research before posting? Okay? Can you attempt to do that? Google Use it.

    Best estimates so far is that when all is said and done, this "pain in the butt" legislation will recover 1/10th of 1% of our yearly unpaid tax bill. Of course, you wouldn't know that from all this talk of rich people hiding mountains of wealth in offshore bank accounts. If the Dems wanted to recover tax revenue, they'd be cracking down on middle and upper-middle class citizens stateside.
    And that is a reason to simply not do this? The cost of running this program is way less than the income it can produce. Or do you think we should just let people have a tax shelter that is blatantly illegal because they're rich? I don't know any of you think you can even attempt to go toe to toe with me on this.

    I commented on exactly what you posted. Take responsibility for your own words.

    No, you commented on a position that was from the law, but you did not read the context, nor the law. Thus, you commented from a position of sheer ignorance.

    Read the thread. Read the law. Don't be an ignorant poster.

    You really want to play this game?

    Okay, answer me this. Why should we allow an individual who sells a property in the US to avoid taxation entirely by having the sales amount be deposited in a foreign bank?

    If you read the thread, you'd realize where I was commenting from. You clearly didn't.

    I already warned you to read the thread before posting. You should have taken that warning.

    Do you have any idea what the UBS scandal was? Or do I have to explain everything from step one?

    I see. Former Americans shouldn't have the same rights as other aliens in the U.S.?

    Your post is bull****. It's not decided by those leaving, it's decided by those staying who don't want to hemmorhage anymore wealth. It's stupid draconian social justice policies that are destroying this country, and YOU support them.

    Where have I ever discussed Freedom as a principle that I belive to be among the most important for this or any nation?
