Foreign Earned Income Exclusion And Foreign Housing Exclusion And Deduction
Certain taxpayers can exclude or deduct income earned in foreign countries. However, the foreign earned income and housing exclusions and the foreign housing deduction do not apply to the income you receive as an employee of the US Government.

"Employees of the US government: You are not eligible for the foreign earned income exclusion (Non government employee spouse and dependents can be)."

I proved that I could manipulate you by forcing you to waste your time trying to prove me wrong because your narcissistic ego will not allow you to simply walk away from an argument. For example, how much time have you wasted over the last week researching facts and posting your findings about the US Navy's deployment history in order to refute another poster's claims of being aboard specific ships in specific locations on specific dates? If someone wishes to claim they've been on secret missions to Mars, so be it because it has no impact upon you, me, or anyone else. If someone claims overseas gov't employees don't pay taxes and you know they're wrong, let them believe whatever they want. With a few exceptions, the average topix reader is wise enough to take anything they read with a grain of salt and is also more than capable of researching any questionable facts on their own. Instead of claiming to live inside the heads of others, you first need to stop allowing others to so easily take up residence within your own.
To borrow a phrase; spot on.

The career diplomat also alleged he was actively discouraged by officials from asking awkward questions about why other top Clinton aides, including the UN ambassador Susan Rice, initially blamed the attack on a spontaneous protest that got out of control. He described that briefing he described as "jaw-dropping, embarrassing and stunning". It is now thought the attacks, involving up to 60 heavily armed militia, were co-ordinated by Ansar al-Sharia, a group affiliated to al-Qaida, and timed to coincide with the 11th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.
The allegations of a state department cover-up follow equally embarrassing claims that military leaders blocked efforts to dispatch special forces troops to the Benghazi consulate.

I believe you are referring to Hicks.

I forget the name of his superior, and I didn't hear specifics about being actively discouraged from asking questions. Clearly he believes that he has been done wrong.

What I did hear was his interpretation that his supervisor was upset that he had spent time alone with Rep Chaffetz without an attorney who was present--and who said he was to be present during all discussions. When pressed, he fell back on the tone of voice rather than anything specifically said about the displeasure of his supervisor during a phone call, claiming that they are trained to interpret these sorts of things. He also referred to the attorney in derogatory terms (something like "her watchdog" or something like it).

I also noted that the witnesses met with Republicans prior to giving testimony but were advised by counsel not to meet with the Democrats--just a curious detail.

Also noted that the FBI travelled to Libya almost immediately but were denied access to the scene for a number of days by the Libyan government. Apparently on reason that more folks were not deployed from Hick's location had to do with a lack of Libyan clearance for them to travel on a scheduled cargo plane.

What I personally believe is that there are many behinds to cover in the case of any such crisis, as well as many opportunities for those who will take them. I am not inclined to believe in wackaloon conspiracy theories--such as the failed false flag allegations against Obama. I have not heard yet from anyone that the attack in Benghazi was specifically anticipated--hence ample room for confusion about the whos, whys and wherefores.

The Susan Rice testimony is puzzling, although I haven't yet heard much about exactly where edits were made and by whom, and particularly for what reason. And the question must always be asked about whether there were compelling national security reasons for downplaying the role of any specific terrorist group at that time. Example--would this allow US forces time to root out suspected terrorists while they were unaware.

And of course the question remains whether the testimony given yesterday added anything of substance to the report already released, as opposed to being a show for the TV cameras (who btw were diverted by events in Cleveland as well as the Arias verdict).

Wrong on both counts, Karl.

Here in Columbus Carl Monday is not a household word, although I take it from your recent difficulties that he is a newscaster up in the Cleveland area. But, even if I had known all that, I don't have the time to put into bringing you down due to your identity infringement.

Try not to sound so provincial.

Karl--Do you understand the meaning of the SPAM button?

Like the term "troll" it has been overused and misused here.

SPAM typically refers to messages, frequently auto-generated, frequently advertising or phishing in nature either sent in bulk to email addresses, or to discussion boards. They are merely attempts to grab the attention of an audience for some other purpose--either to garner clicks elsewhere, to build a customer base (lotsa times for medications linked to physical arousal, but probably also non-existent time-share, political petitions and all sorts of other causes), or to sell something.

My remarks above are not SPAM.

Likewise, trolling is not a descriptor of the actions of posters with whom one disagrees. Frequently trolls have a very specific agenda and attempt to capture the attention of posters/readers for their own message. Loren Eberly is a classic example of a troll. He pops up everywhere, pastes the same exact text and moves one. We also used to have a troll from some southern state who would appear in any thread tangentially related to sexuality and publish his reprints of the works of various pseudo-scientists warning of health and emotional dangers brought into the world by people who are gay.

Lately on Topix, "troll" has been used very selectively to refer to people that some of the folks on the far right disagree with--particularly if they don't post from Columbus (or Hilliard). None of these objectors has a problem with imagine from MS, SL from DE or Karl from northern Ohio. They do, however, identify tranp, che and Duke as foreign interlopers (and thus "trolls") because they disagree AND are not from around here.

End of vocabularly lesson.

That wasn't me, the spam button typically is just used as a negative icon. It doesn't confer any reporting power.

I'll give you red xs from now on instead.

I have a general bias against most Europeans because they are almost all more left wing than I am, and I despise the arrogance of people ripping the country that defends them from being Russian serfs.

All you proved was that you're a butthurt control freak troll, kid. You're so upset that I dared question one of your troll friends that you deliberately lied thinking you would 'manipulate' me. Instead, you got what I usually give...an informed, educated, reasonable response. And that just infuriates people like you. You truly despise truth when it doesn't suit your agenda.
You've embarrassed yourself...that's something for which you trolls show an exceptional talent. Carry on.

There are two graybox posters on this forum that reply mainly to enrage other posters, nearly always on the right.

Whenever a reference is made by Johnson and LOL to SL and bikes, that's trolling.

Whenever I get taunted about my previous name, that's trolling.
