The View From 1776

No More Unilateral Foreign Policy?

Our New liberal-progressive-socialist administration ostentatiously renounced the purported unilateral foreign policy modes of its predecessor in favor of the “sensitive” foreign relations protocol enunciated by Senator John Kerry in the 2004 presidential campaign.

Apparently that message was for domestic consumption only.  The Obama Justice Department has managed to introduce the compassion of the IRS into a major blowup with Switzerland.

  1. This is old news. This story broke in November of 08 and concerned an investigation started by the Bush Administration.

    UBS has agreed to pay $780 million in fines for illegally aiding and abetting US tax cheats who defrauded the US government.

    Mr. Brewton: Does your post imply we should condone tax cheats? Leona Helmsley was famous for her quote, "Only the little people pay taxes." I am sure that if she were still alive, her name would appear on the list of 50,000 tax cheats who are about to be exposed.

  2. He made it very clear in the article that tax cheats should be pursued. He is speaking of foreign policy where you ask a company to break the laws of another nation and cause repercussions in other areas of foreign policy.

    I agree. We need to pursue tax cheats and I believe there are ways but, the main problem is a 17,000 page tax code that favors people who can hire tax lawyers and seek out all the loopholes and exemptions and that encourages people at all income levels to hide income. It isn't just the wealthy cheating on taxes or other laws we have.

    Our nation has become a very sick nation and much of it is due to the abuse of debt that has cause problems in so many other areas of our economy and society.
