There is a “dark side” to a humorous post: Rick Mercer Report: Foreign Accounts Tax Compliance Act which suggests:
The question: Are you or have you even been an
member of the Communist Party American?
We have to hide our “USness” to live in our own country and try to live “normal” lives like any other citizen – like the Jews had to circa 1939 – as our countries roll over and pay tribute to the Empire. This is what the USA has become.
@Steve So very true. If you think about it, anyone with “US person” status has to hide from the Nazis(USA) in their own country. Just like the Jewish did in Nazi Germany. The only difference was that back then, the Nazi rule didn’t extend into other countries as most were against them.
In my view governments that sign IGA’s are worse than the Vichy government. At least Germany had conquered France and instituted their puppet government. But what excuse do governments today for signing IGAs and becoming stooges for the US Treasury Department?
