Ah , did you know the keyboard(and only the keyboard ) is dishwasher safe ?
Soros is a crap spouting crook . Is it the US and France that if his feet touches land in these countries he is arrested ?

What, specifically, is evil about Soros?
Everybody seems to have piled on him. Why? What specifically? I've NEVER gotten a concrete answer to put him in the "Axis of Evil" club.
What has he actually DONE, in actual uncontroversial and universally acknowledged fact, rather than being what appears to be the personification of evil-Jew-banker-controlling-the-world paranoid tropes.
All I remember is that he decided---and said so loudly---that GWB sucked in 2004 before the election (like 47% of US voters) and not in 2006, like everybody in the world. And it seemed that it was the right-wing spin machine who suddenly decided to villainize him.
I see an exceptionally good and foresighted global macro trader and investor.
When the Nazis occupied Budapest in 1944, George Soros' father was a successful lawyer. He lived on an island in the Danube and liked to commute to work in a rowboat. But knowing there were problems ahead for the Jews, he decided to split his family up.
He bought them forged papers and he bribed a government official to take 14-year-old George Soros in and swear that he was his Christian godson. But survival carried a heavy price tag.
While hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were being shipped off to the death camps, George Soros accompanied his phony godfather on his appointed rounds, confiscating property from the Jews.
If China’s efforts to transition to a domestic-demand led economy from an export engine falter, there is a “likelihood” that China’s rulers would foster an external conflict to keep the country together and hold on to power.

Strange how he doesn't mention Ukraine or the Middle East.
He is involved in the Ukraine natural gas jealousies.
Always listen to what Soros never talks about.
To avoid this scenario, Soros called on the U.S. to make a “major concession” and allow China’s currency to join the International Monetary Fund’s basket of currencies. This would make the yuan a potential rival to the dollar as a global reserve currency.
