Hi Obama, Geitner, Senator Levin? Are any of you aware that the Toronto consulate explained to a group of 22 Americans how to jump the New Berlin Wall last month. The Globe and Mail has an article telling about this group therapy session. The illness: American citizenship. The cure: Renunciation of citizenship.
The salient quote:
A U.S. embassy official played down the significance of the renunciation meeting. He said consular officials were responding to calls and requests for information prompted by a flurry of media coverage about the tax crackdown.
“We simply decided it was more efficient to have everybody come as a group and talk to everyone at once, rather than doing it individually,” the official said. “It was simply a time-management decision.”
For those interested in therapy, the cost is $450 per renunciation.
One person I spoke to said the official there explained they would not be talking about the “ten thousand pound gorilla in the room” during the meeting. Another group meeting is planned for later this winter. This is lunacy on the part of the above named senators and Obama for even signing this.
Actually, it was only an 800 pound gorilla – LOL.
Were you there Deckard? Did you actually see the gorilla?
