We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
We have worked for a Soros company for 14 years. Quantum Fund, his major hedge fund, is not open to USA investors so that the SEC cannot peek into its operations. Nevertheless, George (who owns a material interest - more than 25% - of the fund according to official filings) lives opulently in the Untied States and takes the full economic benefit of his capital growing untaxed plus fees based on his investors capital also growing untaxed. He is therefore free to criticise the US and even invest heavily in overthrowing its government, and yet pays it only a minimal amount of tax.
His businesses are registered in the Cayman Islands, to escape the USA taxes he so vociferously advocates for his fellow American citizens.
He claims he pays his fair share of USA taxes--but those taxes are only on whatever salary he nominally "pays" himself.
Like Ted Kennedy, who loves high estate taxes for thee and me but shelters his own money via a Fiji Island Trust (don't believe it? Look it up!).
The kicker is that his Open Society foundations make full use of every single USA government tax credit, deferment, deduction, and outright cash grant, that his lawyers can possibly squeeze out of the American taxpayers, in order to subvert those same taxpayers, while he calls for more taxes on those taxpayers, while he himself pays the minimum he can skate by with, while still maintaining the citizenship that allows him such a lethal parasitic grasp on his host.
Big Left is corrupt to the core, yet legal--a perfect self-parodying metaphor. It'd be hilarious if it wasn't so evil.
