Since Maryland decided to fleece its millionaires, a third of them have disappeared from the rolls. Who is John Galt?

Expat, how is it that you or I could tell this would happen, but supposedly intelligent public officials couldn't see it coming?

I don't know...it's either straight out of "Atlas Shrugged" or "Soylent Green." Maybe they're being rounded up and turned into ink for all that money Obama's printing. Big smile

Laugh Laugh That is hilarious. Now I have this image of politicians being made into ink. Will give pause the next time I pull a dollar out of my pocket.

Read a little closer, or just read period.

No doubt the majority of that loss in millionaire filings results from the recession.

And of the remainder good ridance, uncle sam is cracking down on scoflas too. You can run but you can't hide.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

A bit off topic, but this story reminds me when Harry Hughes was Governor of Maryland, he created a stir when he bought a beach vacation home in Delaware instead of a beach home in Maryland. Perhaps it was because Delaware didn't have sales tax.

I don't know if that's off-topic, CVC. It's actually right on the money, because it addresses the idea that government is entitled to what you have, and its un-American to try to keep what's yours. How DARE these people deny the government the fruits of their labors? We can't allow these people to just sit down and not work up to their potential, nor can we allow them to run across the border to deny the government its due.

When I was living in Alabama, Montgomery was talking about imposing an occupation tax to soak people who were avoiding Montgomery's taxes by living outside the city. That caused quite an uproar.
