Her name is Laurel Lee Sweener, she owns a company called Tax Plan in Singapore, she is an American citizen based in Singapore the last 25 years and knows the US tax laws better than you. She does taxes for about 6 different long term Americans I know here in Jakarta and for a lot of Americans based in SE Asia.

Over here with the weather we have, we BBQ year round.
I have this cool thing called the internet. It allows me to see lots of the world. Interestingly, not much of it looks like this.



Who, then, needs a change of perspective, Mr. Cumcatcher?

Whether or not you recognize your suggestions as isolationist in nature isn't important - that's just what they were. And isolationism doesn't work here on planet Earth.

Besides, isolationism does not lend itself well to the establishment of world dominion.

You're welcome to draw your own conclusions and then drone on about those conclusions, but any relation to my position is pure fabrication. Many countries maintain strong global ties without, or with minimal involvement of their military.
