    do you know what taxes OUR diplomats are required to pay in other countries? you know, for our military bases and such? or what other interests were at stake?

    just wondering... you know... since you do the hack thing so well.

    There are back taxes owed. Even if jillian thinks this a wonderful change in policy, :cuckoo: since when do we grant tax amnesty backdated 20 years?

    What about those diplomats and countries that have complied with the law? Should they get a refund?

    I didn't say it's a 'wonderful change in policy', so don't lie. what i said is that per usual, you are uninformed and knee jerk to assume the 'other side' is wrong.

    lying is ugly. you should stop doing that.

    as for refund... i don't know. should all people who paid reagan's tax increases get a refund?
