    Facebook co founder renouces citizenshp..

    "Eduardo Saverin, the co-founder of Facebook whose falling out with the company and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg was the subject of the 2010 blockbuster The Social Network, renounced his US citizenship last week, and the right has wasted no time labeling him a hero. Saverin, who owns a roughly four percent stake of Facebook, announced that he was expatriating last week, just in time to avoid paying a federal capital gains tax on the fortune heading his way when the social site files its IPO.Forbes Magazine, the conservative-leaning and business friendly magazine, ran an article with the headline “For De-Friending The U.S., Facebook’s Eduardo Saverin Is An American Hero.” MORE

    No he isn’t. He’s an American freeloader. He’s an American sponge. A American mooch. In fact, he’s un-American. He reaped the benefits of trillions of American taxpayer dollars that underwrite the infrastructure, education system, public health, economy, and security of te country that made it possible for him to amass his wealth and now he wants to weasel his way out his end of the bargain. Not only is that dishonest, sleazy and unethical, it’s downright unpatriotic."
