Good riddance, can I swop my citizenship in leui of his?
Seriously, there should be lottery for this kinda thing.
They do it for green cards, why not renounced citizenships?

The face book dude will have enough dough to buy another citizenship almost anywhere.
Most folks couldn't buy their way into western Russia (Siberia) lol

Don't ca think he owes America something?


What does he owe America? He funded a company called Facebook, and now everyone is addicted to it like crack..

You would think the folks with accounts would be up in arms or at least a little out spoken.
Any USERS here? lol ljb

Thats what every American who still lives in America is thinking. lol.


Touche, man... touche.

Too bad the requirement to renounce your citizenship is not being on US soil. It's not like we can just go into the woods on public land and "opt out". I wish. That would solve the immigrant "problem" and the government problem all in one fell swoop.

A four-decade tidal wave of Mexican immigration to the United States has receded, causing a historic shift in migration patterns as more Mexicans appear to be leaving the United States for Mexico than the other way around


Even the Mexicans are turning around and going back to Mexico.

Thank you sno,
That is most interesting. For quite different reasons than the face book drop out I am sure. I think you could start a thread just about that article.
Again what goes around...
thanks for posting that timely info Cheers ljb

TAXMAN


The Beatles


Let me tell you how it will be,
There's one for you, nineteen for me,
'Cause I'm the Taxman,
Yeah, I'm the Taxman.
Should five per cent appear too small,
Be thankful I don't take it all.
'Cos I'm the Taxman,
Yeah, I'm the Taxman.

(If you drive a car ), I'll tax the street,
(If you try to sit ), I'll tax your seat,
(If you get too cold ), I'll tax the heat,
(If you take a walk ), I'll tax your feet.
Taxman.

'Cause I'm the Taxman,
Yeah, I'm the Taxman.
Don't ask me what I want it for
(Taxman! Mister Wilson!)
If you don't want to pay some more
(Taxman! Mister Heath!),
'Cause I'm the Taxman,
Yeah, I'm the Taxman.

Now my advice for those who die, (Taxman!)
Declare the pennies on your eyes, (Taxman!)
'Cause I'm the Taxman,
Yeah, I'm the Taxman.
And you're working for no-one but me,
(Taxman).

A rich Brazilian. And Harvard schooled.


Since 2010, Saverin has lived in Singapore. He reportedly owns a luxury penthouse suite in Singapore's tallest residential building. In September 2011, he renounced his U.S. Citizenship, later reportedly to avoid paying significantly more in US taxes after the Facebook IPO since Singapore has no capital gains taxes. He would still have to pay an "exit" tax to the US government.
His girlfriend is Wong Hui Ling, a 25 year old university graduate of the National University of Singapore.


It must be nice to be so rich that you can avoid taxes.....

I thought there were ways around capital gains taxes for the uber wealthy - loopholes and such.

I think he sees the writing on the wall, and Obama's rhetoric about hammering the rich with more and more and more taxes.

Hell, I would leave too.

The highest corporate tax in the world. Any entrepreneur wanting to start a business isn't going to do it here. A similar example is the idiot in France that just got elected, Hollande, who wants to tax all millionaires at 75%.

You think they are going to stick around for that? Hell no. Many of them are going to leave France, just as this guy did.

Considering 'Americans are leaving the country and renouncing citizenship at an all time high', this doesn't surprise me at all.

That being said, anyone who has such important ties to an organisation like facebook, could be facing all kind's of trouble.

I would imagine most of it went before he let on that he was renouncing his citizenship. Must have some brains, after all he did help co found the world largest snooping database for all LEO and intelligence agencies on the planet and beyond.

I think he woke up and said "what the hell did i create?"

Yeah , don't you know, that is the thing to do in America now! Come to America, make money, then take it out of the country. No ties. You don't have to be an illegal to do it!
