KLT : Yes. An no one ever raises the issue of a person's right to protect their own money from tax hungry governments. Ours , by the way, has the highest corporate tax rate in the world but the our current ' Democratic Socialist ' Democrats blame corporations ( who find legal remedies ) rather than their own governmental greed to pay for their vote-pandering give- aways .
That is the beauty of it. it is illegal or in violation of currency laws in some jurisdictions(ie Briton) but is not illegal where the mutual funds and other structures are. Since it is legal to invest off shore, even in country's where currency laws are tight, it make a normally illegal currency transaction legal. It is more than just for tax shelters(the funds are taxed where earned until you bring the money home then it is taxed at a lower rate than normal income; and it cleans the income and the tax at a no tax or low tax rate,If that makes your head hurt, there are even more complicated tax and money schemes around ,THAT ARE legal (to a )point). It hides income and is called , in some circles MONEY LAUNDERING.

Guess why the US politicians aren’t mentioned in the Panama Papers. Think about it.
They already have their own tax schemes, Legal ones too. It is called the IRS code. Why do you think it only gets bigger and more convoluted?
They keep telling you that the rich don’t pay their fair share. It is the whores who write to laws that don’t pay their fair share.
Abolish the IRS now!

I am not a trump fan, but will vote for him if he is the candidate. I will hold my nose considerable less tight than the last two times.
I agree with him that it would be so easy to have Mexico pay for the wall. There are many more ways than this that would work also. This way has the added benefit of mass self deportation.
That was my first and only thought KLT. They are all suspect at this point!
I was thinking the same thing too!

Sorry to tell you: Non navigable creeks and streams no longer protect you. Obama’s EPA has added 3 words to laws (regulations) The words ( and their watersheds ) adds the entire land mass of the country to the controlled area, Where previously the fed government only had control of navigable waterways. The government owns your land.
The government already owned the land. They are just renting it to you. They call the rent property taxes. If you doubt this, stop paying the property taxes on the "rented" land and see how long it is before they seize it.

Oh goody! here we go again.
We all remember how the Department Of Energy was formed under Jimmy Carter with the mandate of eliminating our dependance on foreign oil. How did that work out for you?

They like democrats, demonize what they fear. I think they need to fear a strong leader. They too recognize and love our milquetoast leadership.
Not surprised. The GOP has turned out to be the biggest group of Judases that I've ever seen.
Just look at the POS spending bill that the house just passed. The democrats loved that!
If it is so, I will lose a HUGE amount of respect for the man.
Has TreyGowdy ever done anything besides whine?
One big baby backing another.
...Gowdy seemed to pivot away from attack, just when it appeared the lies and evidence piled up...it happened in the IRS scandal and again with the Benghazi committee...I believe in the end these politicians care most about their personal wealth and the future inheritance for their own families...but what do the "pedestrians" inherit for their heirs...20 Trillion dollars of debt, invasive by Wahhabi Blood money and the stripping of Constitutional rights...
...if Cruz is so unelectable and Trump is so "dangerous", then why couldn't Mike Lee run...he seems to be the least affected by the Wahington Influence...
...Rubio seems so condescending...I said that I would hold my nose and vote...maybe for a Cruz/Rubio ticket, but can't seem to imagine who Rubio would pick to run as VP that would get me excited about voting or not think that the inside fix for "Progress" was still continuing....

How can anyone call O stupid. He has held us hostage to islam for years and no one has called him out on the national stage. How he is leading us down this road cannot be called stupid. It is we who are stupid for not screaming every day about this. Read his writings, he is muslim
If the info was not in the article I would not have any idea who he is, Oliver, that is.
I prefer Jamie Oliver. He's adorable, plays rock and roll and he cooks!
Ignorance is not really anything to be proud of.
Who the heck is Mike Rowe?

Islam is a political system and a system of laws that controls thoughts of people by claiming it is Gods will. Roman Catholics started this when the Roman Emperor Constantine took control of his church in approx 300 AD. They learned from within the error of their ways. Islam must also reform from within, but it doesn’t seem likely. This war on humanity will last hundreds of years more, not counting the 1400 years already.
People will always try to control others. That is why we must DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION. It is the only document in history that has given us freedom. It was a major leap. It must remain strong.
Why would Islam reform from within ?? Islam is the religion of death to all none believers.
Defending our Constitution means defending the right of Muslims to practice Islam in the United States. Calling it a political system doesn't change that. You have just as much right to subscribe to and advocate unpopular political opinions as you do to follow the faith of your choice.

Don’t kid yourself this ethanol boondoggle blew up 4 years ago and they are just now discussing it. Why? Perhaps they have the next boondoggle set up to begin. Just watch here it comes.

Wow! The left agrees that a shouted innuendo can take down a conservative, but years and mountains of evidence only make a liberal more desirable.
They plant these people as much to keep their own followers from jumping ship as to keep the uniformed questioning.
Beat me to it. The IRS is a vile twisted agency. They’re not any better than these scammers. If they think you owe them money you are guilty until you can prove you are innocent. They can seize your assets without a conviction, take money from your paycheck, and put liens on your property, and even seize your property. They have their own court systems, their own judges, and they often ignore their own tax rules and even laws. The SCOTUS granting them the ability to interpret legislation how they see fit. Not to mention they have been caught red handed using their enforcement responsibilities as a political weapon against those that they politically disagree with. They're a gestapo.

Why is our infrastructure still connected to the Internet. Even an illiterate boxer knows you don’t lead with your chin.
U.S. intelligence agencies warn that China operates on a scale so sophisticated it could bring down the entire American electrical grid. It probably isn't and at the very least is on a VPN, cause if they were really targeting it, something that by the way is not referred to anywhere in the story other than the misleading title, it would have been compromised by now.
I work in the industry, and I can tell you that the critical infrastructure is not accessible on the internet. It is barely accessible to the companies that own it.
There's some agenda with these type of stories, but I'm not sure what it is yet.
It is far easier to damage the grid with a gun, than with cyber-warfare. Shoot the right insulators in a substation and lights out.
