    Only black bears here. They are more scared of you than you are of them.

    I wouldn't expect to save a dime. I'm just interesting in my company being able to compete with our foreign competitors. A new Cayman company with a significant tax advantage just bought one of our competitors and will use an offshore reinsurance structure to effectively lower its tax rate to somewhere between 15%-20% while we still pay 35%.

    This shit is real and it matters.

    Does either party have a program to reduce offshoring? I don't recall Trump saying anything about companies relocating in the Cayman's, etc. He wants to tax imports, but relocating the company headquarters to avoid taxes seems to still be going on.

    Interesting take when I consider all the times you have defended this company's practices in the past.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Joe,

    That top picture looks like a certain section of the Willow.

    Turns out our Chief Investor Officer has recently discovered fly fishing. I promised to take him up once the hoppers start.

    Can you say obtuse? I knew you could.
