French Pay $14,500 Per Month for Hollande to Get His Hair Cut

By admin / July 16, 2016

Hollande is a socialist to the core; he claimed to hate the rich, yet spends taxpayers’ money like nobody else. He spends $14,500 per month for haircuts. Sorry, but they charge me $15 for a haircut and I give a $5 tip twice a month. I cannot imagine anyone ever spending that much to have their […]

By admin / July 13, 2016

What are US multi-nationals doing with the $2 trillion they keep offshore? Looking at the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) disclosures shows that Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Cisco Systems hold about 10% of their offshore cash in US government debt, which earns these companies substantial sums in interest. So they are earning interest in dollars while parking money […]

By admin / July 10, 2016

The politicians in Australia know how to shove a tax through that they can flip on anyone who opposes it. Australia is now implementing a “domestic violence tax” whereby they will charge every household $30 annually to create a fund to help victims of domestic violence.

Just Shut up & Pay a TV Tax — So What if You Don’t Have One!

By admin / July 9, 2016

When it comes to taxes, just shut up and pay. It does not matter what the “intent” is — just pay. The German High Court upheld a broadcasting tax that requires everyone to pay for TV and radio. It seemed logical to question why someone should pay the tax if they do not own a TV or […]

By admin / June 9, 2016

    The one state that has gone complete anti-democratic is Oklahoma. It is wise not to travel in that state at all. Oklahoma should be on a no-fly zone. Now, Oklahoma police can outright seize everything you have from debit cards to bank accounts on a traffic stop without any criminal charges being filed. If some policeman thinks you’re doing […]

HSBC is altering its oversight of safe-deposit boxes in Hong Kong. Governments are targeting safe-deposit boxes to look for cash that is hiding from taxation.

G20 Blames Your Psychological Problems for their Failure

By admin / June 2, 2016

The G20 central bank and finance ministers met in Shanghai in April and cheered the rally in the markets after patting themselves on the back.
