Karl Denninger militantly and aggressively does absolutely nothing this weekend.Submitted by Smudge Pot on Sat, 10/12/2013 - 07:21
Karl Denninger, writer of the Market Ticker website, part originator of the first reincarnation of "tea-party", all around good guy and wicked smart dude, has announced that he will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING this weekend.
He's "darked" his site but it's kind of an interpretive version of going dark:
Moving forward, Karl says he's gonna pretty much stop making money to the point where he has no income tax liability, no capital gains liability, no tax on his productivity or income. He says he has enough money to comfortably live out his days and he's drawing his own red line.
Red as in red ink for government which shall have to do without the dollars he would otherwise surely make.
What makes this so awesome for us?
Nothing. I hit his site every day. I'd plead with him to relent and keep publishing but a man's gotta do what he thinks is right. Besides, he's a writer and that's a truly dependent condition.
