Should we copy Europe?
By Walter E. Williams

The OECD has a blacklist for countries they’ve identified as “tax havens.” The blacklisted countries include Hong Kong, Macao, Malaysia (Labuan) and Singapore. Also targeted are Andorra, Brunei, Costa Rica, Dubai, Guatemala, Liberia, Liechtenstein, the Marshall Islands, Monaco, the Philippines and Uruguay. The blacklisted jurisdictions have strong financial privacy laws and low or zero rates of tax.

The OECD member countries want the so-called tax havens to change their laws to help them identify the earnings of their citizens. Most of all, OECD wants these countries to legislate higher taxes so as to reduce their appeal. A suggestion that we should be more like Europe is the same as one suggesting that we should be poorer.

No! What we should be doing is what made America the land of opportunity.

Honest money! Private schools! Stop the dole!


TECHNOLOGY: Kodak’s software rudely grabbed jpeg hook

Wednesday, November 22, 2006

Kodak’s software offered a faster way to upload pic to their site.

What it did was install a piece of BLOATWARE that seized all the picture associations like jpeg and waddles in every time one wants to look at a “picture”.

Arghhh!

A 92-year-old woman was shot to death Tuesday after she fired at three narcotics officers trying to serve a warrant at her house, officials said.

Neighbors and relatives said it must have been a case of mistaken identity. Police said they had the right address.

Absolutely unbelievable. Kicking in old ladies’ doors.

All for the stupid idea that anyone can be prevented from taking drugs.

One for personal/business contacts, and the other for anything that requires registration or sign-up (forums, subscriber content, etc). This way, if your second account gets buried with spam, various advertisements, or nag emails, your personal account should be relatively untouched.

Well, if you follow my previous tip, then you can use one gmail account and GUARANTEE no spam.

To refresh your memory, gmail with the plus sign gives you fully protected email. Create your gmail account and then a list of random codes. For each use of the email, assign one of your codes after the plus sign. Then, create that label and filter in GMail. Then, the only thing that will get into that FILTERED category will be valid email. Everything else can be nuked!

Neat!

You don’t? TOO BAD!

This morning 22 November at 0713 est on Route 295S Exit 47 … …

… … a white suv sg 24 301 … …

… down route 295 at a leisurely 80+ (Speed limit is 65 for commoners!)

… in lots of traffic

… tail gating the poor peon in his way

… never left the left lane! (as it disappeared into the distance!)

(Do you teach them to do that, or is that a qualification for working for the state of nujerzee!?)

Any way I am sure that he was hurrying to get away from the scene of most crimes against the people of NuJerzee (aka trenton) to protect and serve me.

Arghhh!
