Land of the Free? Seems like it's getting less and less so everytime a politician thinks, farts, opens his/her mouth.
Okay, maybe I was wrong to put "thinks" in there... so sue me. [where's the raspberry smiley when you need one?]
I know Australian politicians are all lying assholes and not worth a pinch of piss... but your lot.... worse... by far... like damned demonic worse.
I read recently that when a person emigrates from the US, cutting all business and employment ties and resettles [say] in Australia, it's law that he/she STILL HAS TO PAY TAXES IN THE US. Like f**k!! I mean, how ludicrous is that... having to support life here AND one there? I know of one such family, been here for 40 years paying taxes, and now the US gov't is hitting them for 4 decades of back taxes on income derived here. Worse still, our effwit, lying, cheating, backstabbing politicians are doing nothing to help them....because they're f**king puppets of the US gov't?
Even more ludicrous, one of them was just 6 when she arrived here.... but according to them, she owes taxes to the US govt for a period of 19 years employment [on Australian soil... AND AS AN AUSTRALIAN CITIZEN] prior to getting married.
It's insane, totally insane!!
