Re: gold doesn't stack up


Ron Paul: "Is gold money?"

Bernanke: "No."

Ron Paul:"Then why do central banks hold gold?"

Bernanke: "It's an asset"

Ron Paul: "Then why don't they hold diamonds?"

Bernanke: "...Tradition"

Re: How to get money inside Canada


They like nothing better then finding tax avoiders and then they go after you every year. Year after year.
They have also been known to grossly overestimate the amount of taxes owed, and CRA is not like the justice system. With CRA, a taxpayer is guilty unless he can prove his innocence.

Re: How to get money inside Canada

Nothing is "hypothetical" when it comes to CRA and what you may or may not say. LOL well in my case it is truly hypothetical. If CRA is shrewd enough to figure out my identity on an anonymous forum, well I guess my goose is cooked. Care to answer my original question? What methods are used to impor...

Re: How to get money inside Canada

you greatly underestimate what the CRA is capable of Just to be clear, I am asking a hypothetical question. Read the original comment; there are ostensibly people looking to play in Canada's real estate casino but are having difficulty getting their cash in the door for income declaration reasons. ...

Re: How to get money inside Canada

this, supposedly, prevents you from being prosecuted or having to pay fines ... but not the back tax... The fact that you even mention that, let alone ask this question on an internet forum, leads me to believe you greatly underestimate what the CRA is capable of. They will be more than happy to ru...

Re: How to get money inside Canada

So here's the question: say I have a large chunk o' change offshore somewhere but haven't declared it to CRA, and there's a "hot property" I want to invest in but am short capital in Canada to finish the transaction. How should I go about buying? What would be the common techniques used to get my f...

Re: America Gothic

the brightest minds are still American. That's not in danger of changing in my lifetime. Bright, or not, without freedom, they are no longer free to create, innovate and prosper, as they once were. The last nail is being driven into the coffin of the American Republic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: Thinking about moving to the U.S.? think again

Move to the USSA? I don't care if they have ZERO tax. I don't even wish to travel there, thank you. I value liberty, which is rapidly being lost. Why not move to USA? at least you'll be safe there... no other country kills dead terrorists. The solution to that and many of the other problems is Ron ...

Re: Bin Ladens Dead

WOW :shock: :lol: :P What an achievement... who cares. He probably died years ago and some poor guy got blown up... to help start the American election campaign for Mr. Obama. My thoughts exactly.

Not me. Looks like a Stepford Wives community and Dallas heat is unbearable. To think I almost became one moved there years ago. :oops:
