What they don’t tell you is the vast majority of the people who supposedly are renouncing their US citizenship also hold citizenship in some other country, they have to or they would be stateless, would have no passport, and therefore for the most part would be unable to travel internationally, in actuality most of them are still holding the citizenship of the foreign country where they were actually born. Such people are often referred to as being duel-citizens or duel-nationals. The reason they took out naturalized US citizenship in the first place usually was for matters of convenience, like being able to travel to and from the USA as a US citizen exempt from any restrictions imposed by the immigration laws thus able to come and go from the USA as they wish. Who the President of the USA is does not matter to them.

I just don't understand the reasoning of some people. Once you have renounced your US citizenship, you cannot EVER get it back. When the purple-lipped blunder was in office, I was pizzed most of the time, but I dealt with it like an adult. I would have NEVER even considered giving up my citizenship. This country may have issues, but it is still the greatest country on earth!! We have the most rights and the most freedoms of ANY country on earth!! And most of all, millions of people are currently waiting in line and spending copious amounts of money to emigrate here. If these morons want to find another country to live in based on a temper tantrum, then I say "See ya. Wouldn't want to be ya!! And we WON'T leave the lights on!!"

This reminds me of the time when I was about four years old and decided to teach my parents a lesson by running away from home. To the backyard. And then I noticed they didn’t care because (1) I had nowhere to go and (2) they were great parents and I would have been out of my mind to really try to leave. Yes, liberals are toddlers throwing mindless tempter tantrums.

Most people who renounce their US citizenship do so for financial reasons. They are either high income earners or have inherited money and don't want to be responsible for high taxes, even though the US will tax them for a certain period after they leave, but eventually, they will not be obligated to pay. And if you live abroad and earn an income, the first $107,000 is tax exempt anyway, and you can also deduct the cost of housing. Not a bad deal for high income earners who don't have to live in the USA.

Many US citizens reside, consume services, and pay taxes in another country. The United States government, almost alone among the world's governments, requires all of its citizens to file tax returns even when they live in another tax jurisdiction and are fully taxed there. So, not only do US citizens living abroad always have to file two tax returns; they often find themselves exposed to additional taxation and risk as a result. This is stupid for many reasons, the most obvious being that US citizens living abroad are not living in the United States and are consuming fewer of the benefits and services supposedly funded by paying taxes. Second, filing an additional tax return for those who have zero US taxable income wastes everyone's time and money. Third, because tax rates are often higher in other countries, foreign income tax credits can negate the US taxes entirely and allow the US citizen to, in effect, store up credits to use against future taxes. It's a complicated, stupid shell game and every American living abroad is subjected to it. Dual citizens are unique only in that they have the option to renounce their US citizenship and stop playing it. Most don't. I take that as a compliment to everything else America is despite its sometimes unpleasant federal bureaucracy and taxation rules.

Then DeGeneres asked, “If you had to be stuck in an elevator with either President Trump, Mike Pence, or Jeff Sessions, who would it be?”Harris looked away then responded, “Does one of us have to come out alive?”

The choice of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate on Tuesday marks Biden’s continued march to the left, as Harris is one of the most left-wing members of the U.S. Senate.The non-partisan GovTrack.us website ranked Harris the 4th most liberal member of the Senate, based on an analysis of legislation that she sponsored or co-sponsored through 2018, the first two years she spent in Congress. Update: In 2019, GovTrack rated Harris the most left-wing — further to the left than “democratic socialist” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

As regular readers of my column know, I’m no fan of Donald Trump. And that’s putting it mildly. I don’t like his chronic dishonesty. I don’t like narcissism. I don’t like his nastiness and his silly name-calling. I detest his need to constantly cause chaos, as he did with a recent tweet suggesting we should postpone the 2020 presidential election. There’s nothing about this man’s character that I like. And I hope he wins re-election in a landslide. Actually what I mean is that I hope the Republican candidate beats the Democratic candidate. And I wish the Republican candidate were almost anybody else.

North Carolina police have charged a neighbor with the murder of a five-year-old boy who was riding a bike in his own yard when he was shot at point blank range on Sunday evening. Darius Sessoms, 25, was taken into custody by Wilson police around 24 hours after he allegedly approached Cannon Hinnant in front of the young boy's father's house at 5:30pm and shot him in the head. Hinnant's seven-year-old and eight-year-old sisters witnessed the killing, their mother told WRAL. Sessoms lived next door to the family, and the killing is not believed to be random.

A recent landmark poll of 20,000 citizens undertaken by the Knight Foundation and Gallup found that Americans’ hope for and trust in an objective media is all but lost. They see not only an ever-growing partisanship in news reporting but a determination by the mainstream media to push a political agenda instead of honestly disseminating the news. While generic faith in the media has been gradually declining over recent decades, the precipitous drop in trust and questions about what motivates the mainstream media can be traced to June 2015 and Donald Trump’s entry into the presidential sweepstakes.

Since Kamala Harris was announced as Joe Biden’s pick for Vice President, the negative immediate media coverage of Harris has, as expected, been swift and vicious. She’s already been attacked by right-wing commenters, and called ‘nasty’ by the President. But another big, underlying trend has been far simpler: Harris’ first name has been regularly mispronounced, often intentionally by the likes of seasoned political commentators like Tucker Carlson. But Harris, who pronounces her first name “COMMA-luh” and not “kuh-MA-luh,” shouldn’t have to deal with this. She’s been in the political spotlight for years, including her own presidential run just a few
