I'm thinking about submitting an article to something called the Strategic Culture Foundation. My bottom line price: $0.02 US.
If they accept it and pay me, that could end up as a net loss to me of $311,561.98.
Well, theoretically, anyway. Good luck to anyone trying to get 300 grand out of all my seizable/saleable assets.
Bottom line: The US government doesn't get to decide who I write for.
