There is a famous east German joke A customer orders a Trabant car. The salesman tells him to come back to pick it up in nine years. The customer: "Shall I come back in the morning or in the evening then?" The salesman: "You're joking, aren't you." The customer: "No, not at all. It's just that I need to know whether the plumber can come at 3pm or not."

mjwalshe Re:Gots to find more ways to avoid taxes (533 comments)

well you could have less government but would mean stripping the states of a lot of powers which wont happene. Having one set of uniform tax and employment laws would save a lot of money. It makes no sense in the 21st century for the USA to have 52 sets of employment law plus federal employment laws

actualy this was a secretary in the BND Germanys CIA who was seduced into working for the KGB - she though she was working for neo Nazis which is almost as worrying.

The KGB have used Romeo spies to seduce the secretaries before now - one poor woman killed her self when she found out - the "Americans" series has this as a plot point.
