Jerk Baby Billionaire Renounces U.S. Citizenship To Skip Taxes, Cries Tyranny When He Can't Come Home

News

Let's all have a good sympathy cry for Roger Ver, a squintillionaire investor scumbag who decided to put his Ayn Rand fantasies into action by renouncing his U.S. citizenship so he wouldn't be oppressed by taxes. He took up residence in the tropical paradise (and tax haven) of St. Kitts, but when he tried to visit the U.S. of A for some tech-asshole conference, his visa application was rejected. Ver took to the Twitter machine to whine about tyrants and post Darth Vader pictures.


Ver is most displeased at how shabbily he's been treated by the nation that he's severed his social contract with, and

complains that the decision has forced him to miss speaking appointments at conferences and that the US embassy in Barbados refused to even consider the evidence for his application.

Poor sweet baby.

Mr. Ver got filthy rich as an entrepreneur and investor, and acquired the nickname "Bitcoin Jesus" because he gave away thousands of the virtual currency units for free back in its early days. He gave his U.S. citizenship the heave-ho in March 2014, and his visa application appears to have been snubbed because the State Department is worried he'll become an illegal immigrant moocher:

The official reasoning behind Ver's rejection is that he doesn't have sufficient "ties" to his country of residency in the Caribbean and has not demonstrated he has "the ties that will compel [him] to return to your home country after your travel to the United States," according to a picture he tweeted of a letter that appears to be from the embassy.

You want to come here, Roger? Get in line with the steerage passengers, and make it clear that you're going to go back home to Galt's Gulch when your trip is over. Maybe you could leave a deposit to make sure you get the hell out.

Bloomberg notes that in addition to skipping out on participation in the American polity himself, Ver has also been trying to encourage other rich assholes to renounce their ties to God's Own Green Earth so they can be free and unencumbered in a Caribbean pirate paradise, too. In June, he started a website encouraging likeminded Achievers to renounce America and join him in St. Kitts.

But now The Man Who's Very Cunty can't come home, poor thing. Oh, wait -- he's already at home and he can damned well stay there. Guess he can always teleconference, using the internet, although if he truly had any integrity, he'd renounce using any infrastructure that was paid for by taxes, which are Theft. Pity, though -- going off the grid would make his imaginary money worthless.

Hooray, it's time for yet another dispatch from Fox News's big fun week of failure. (No, we mean even more failure than usual.) While all of Twitter is being annoying and talking incessantly about nothing but Bran and Daenerys and Carl and Peg or whoever they are, we have been (ignoring it and) focusing on all Fox's sadness, starting with Pete Buttigieg's town hall, where he called Fox News a piece of shit to its face. Then we laughed and laughed at Fox News idiot Pete Hegseth, who is sending lots of begging to today's college graduates, that they might immediately get dropped on their heads and forget all their education, so they might grow up to be the Fox News viewers of the future.

Oh, and we haven't even had a chance to LOL at the epic hilarity of Steve Doocy trying to do man-on-the-street interviews in Midtown Manhattan, shoving the mic into the faces of New Yorkers who literally don't care if he goes and plays in traffic. That was fun!

But the point of this post is that we have finally learned what makes at least some Fox News viewers tick, and it is that Tucker Carlson "laughs like a girl." That is not us saying that, that is a Fox News fan lady telling the Washington Post's Erik Wemple why she loves Tucker Carlson so much.

Old White Guys Try To Explain Abortion

Throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It's your Sunday show rundown!

popular

Michael is out, so I'm taking over your Sunday Show Rundown. This week everyone was talking about those awful abortion laws worming their way through state legislatures. As usual, most of the men were tripping on their dicks while trying to talk about vag. Luckily, there's enough women around to ladysplain things.

Bernie Sanders went on Meet the Press for the first time in FOREVER and played his greatest hits for all the kids. Sanders criticized Joe Biden's environmental policy (which is literally just "beat Trump"), stating that it wasn't "good enough." Sanders is right! (NO FIGHTING.)

SANDERS: Beating Trump is not good enough. You have to beat the fossil fuel industry, you have to take on all the forces of the status quo who do not want to move this country to energy efficiency and sustainable energy.

But then Chuck Todd asked Bernie a loaded question about women getting "sex-selective" abortions and the whole interview went off the rails. Bernie struggled to answer the dumbass question and came across looking stupid despite having spent the better part of the last week in Alabama railing against abortion bans.
