UPDATE: 52,000 Americans’ bank accounts are with UBS and the Swiss banks are talking . . . .
What’s the leverage we’ve used to get them to talk? I’m not sure; no telling if we’ll ever know, but for decades, Americans have been hiding their money in Swiss banks, to keep it from being taxed, . . . these people have to be in a pure panic mode about now . . . . possibly even making quick, unscheduled trips to Europe! Hey; didn’t Pelosi just . . . . what was her urgency?
The word is that those about to be exposed are not the insiders though.
Just imagine, (’cause it won’t actually happen), that those who’ve moved their accounts to another bank were included in the list of cheats . . . . . wouldn’t that be interesting! That’s one list I’d sure like to see! The 52,000 are about to be made scapegoats and some will probably go to jail. The ones who belong in jail even more, are the ones who’ve been warned to move their accounts! You agree? Thought so.
Also, have you noticed, recently, UBS has been advertising on American TV? Think maybe they need extra investors due to many pulling their money out?
All the investors that have been scamming people – the Ponzi schemes or ripping others off in one fashion or another, and have been secreting money away, waiting for the day of their abscounding with the money to live on the French Riviera, . . . . it’s all up in the air now.
With a wink and a nod, wealthy people were allowed to get away with hiding their money – put their untaxed money into off-shore banks – it’s been common, for decades. Now, the writing is on the wall; the feds are talking to the Swiss banks and some are looking like they’re going to be revealing who has money hidden away.
Right now, it’s the only up-side I can see from my vatage point, to having a Socialist president.
The Income Tax is an illegal tax, I’m told, . . . by some of these people . . . . that’s how they justified what they were doing, it’s what they told me as they encouraged me to do the same. Though it may be true that it’s an illegal tax, I didn’t buy into it – – – that we didn’t owe the government that builds the roads, schools, delivers the mail, etc. It didn’t make sense to me To me, it was a matter of integrity. My God told me to “render unto Caesar . . . ” Like most people I’ve had my run-in with these domestic terrorists – the IRS and wished I could do as some were doing; I couldn’t. When I finally lost everything at the hands of the IRS, as my tax attorney walked me to the door, he told me: “Josiah, I’ve not known anyone with more integrity.” My reply, as we shook hands was: “Didn’t do me a whole lot of good though, did it?”
Still, I’ve got to admit though, it’s not bothering me one iota that these guys may be about to get theirs . . . . or as my mother use to say, . . . . their “comeupance”!
I wonder; how many congressmen will be among the tax cheats? Anyone willing to make a guess? I’d be willing to bet a couple dollars on the chance there’s not one! I’d bet they’re among the group who’ve recently moved their money! How about you? Think there just may be a group who had warning?
And Madoff and his wife? Please don’t forget these guys and why are they not already behind bars? Both of them?! In fact, I suggest a paid-one-way-trip over to the Hamas area of Gaza . . . . jail just might be too easy on ’em.
These people are not the real problems in the world; oh, they’re unethical people, cheats and liars, but they’re not the manipulators . . . . they’re not even the manipulated (meaning members of congress) . . . . It’s time to gather our wits and look at the whole picture . . . . As people who’ve cheated are being exposed, and identity theft becomes rampant, and our personal records are all put online for any hacker to see, facilitating more identity theft, can the long predicted global world order be far off?
