I just came across this article from the Forbes website and found out that the US State Department has just raised the fee for renunciation of U.S. citizenship from $450 to $2,350.
The article goes on to quote the State Department’s reasoning for this 422 percent ass raping.
1. Consular officers must confirm that the potential renunciant fully understands the consequences of renunciation, including losing the right to reside in the United States without documentation as an alien.
2. Consular officers must verify that the renunciant is a U.S. citizen and they must conduct a minimum of two intensive interviews with the potential renunciant. Consular officers must even review at least three consular systems before administering the … [Read more]
What politicians would sound like if they were honest:
Looks like it’s about that time of year again when 95% of American dumbasses are stuffing their faces with junk food, getting completely wasted and mindlessly waving American flags. How many people actually stop to think about what it is they are actually supposed to be celebrating these days? What is left? Not capitalism. Not our freedoms. Not the ability to travel unmolested. … [Read more]
I just got back home to Asia from what I think will be my last trip to the States for quite some time Things have definitely not gotten better in America since I was last there and quite possibly have gotten significantly worse. I was only there for two weeks but during my short trip I saw a lot of things that further reinforced my conclusion to that my once proud native land is 100% fucked.
Almost at the same moment of my arrival came the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case. I thankfully had managed to avoid hearing much about it over the last year, as no one else in the world gives even half a shit about … [Read more]
It’s not all that often I come across an article that so succinctly summarizes where we are and where we’re going. The Burning Platform is one of our favorite blogs and is always full of outstanding commentary and analysis on the insane world we live in. The article below is probably contains nothing new for regular readers, however it’s a great single article summary to pass along to friends and family you are still trying to “wake up”.

We’re not sure how news worthy this but according to a reader tip the TSA (Transportation Security Administration, more appropriately named Tyrannical Sexual Assault Administration) is now harassing passengers in Singapore’s Changi International Airport who are on flights that aren’t even US bound!
We have been aware that since at least early 2012 the TSA has been in European airports individually interrogating and in some cases naked body scanning passengers at the gate of US bound flights. As frightening as that is, as far as we know, giving the same treatment for non-US bound flights is a new low for the TSA.
Here are the details: According to our reader, she was on a direct United Airways flight … [Read more]

These days it seems like nearly every single day there is something in the news that makes me grow more and more terrified of the fate that may befall my friends and family back home in the Great American Scamocracy. The US is clearly long overdue for an appointment with reality and seems to be an empire that’s nearing its expiration date, both in general and in its Ponzi fiat currency scam. I saw this coming years ago and left the USA for greener pastures, and I regularly try to convince my friends and family still living there to get the fuck out. This isn’t the time for useless activism, “getting out the vote”, “fighting the … [Read more]
Hey dudes! So if you ever take my advice, do it today. Go down to the local friendly coin shop and buy some gold or silver now. It’s easy. If you’re in America, just bring some cash (up to $9,999) and pick your favorite shiny metal to take home with you, no ID required. You can get some platinum too. Fuck it, even palladium. Physical precious metals right now are dirt cheap and investing in any of them will be wildly successful, like some great party where everyone gets laid, even your fat stupid cousin Larry.
Here is the 20-year chart for gold. This trend will continue.
Charlie’s advice for all cool smart single dudes is: it’s … [Read more]
