lol libertarians

I’m sure a lot of them are nice people but not this guy

The US Department of Justice has indicted today John McAfee, the founder of cybersecurity firm McAfee, on fraud and money laundering charges stemming from schemes that netted the infosec veteran more than $13 million.

(Yes McAfee Antivirus fame)

An indictment was unsealed today charging John David McAfee with tax evasion and willful failure to file tax returns. The June 15, 2020 indictment was unsealed following McAfee’s arrest in Spain where he is pending extradition.
According to the indictment, John McAfee earned millions in income from promoting cryptocurrencies, consulting work, speaking engagements, and selling the rights to his life story for a documentary. From 2014 to 2018, McAfee allegedly failed to file tax returns, despite receiving considerable income from these sources. The indictment does not allege that during these years McAfee received any income or had any connection with the anti-virus company bearing his name.

How jaded have I become when I see $13 million stolen in some corporate schemes and I think “That’s all?”

My favorite part was when he was former fraudster, who was simultaneously running for president and evading taxes on the fraud money. Maybe he’ll give the Repubs nomination a shot next time.

I thought he moved to some Caribbean jurisdiction where he blatantly bribes police to live entirely above the law?

He also married a prostitute and claims to have fathered like 50 kids, dude is legit insane.

It was 1969 and the company was attempting to use an IBM computer to schedule trains. After six months, McAfee’s system began to churn out optimized train-routing patterns. Unfortunately, he had also discovered LSD. He would drop acid in the morning, go to work, and route trains all day. One morning he decided to experiment with another psychedelic called DMT. He did a line, felt nothing, and decided to snort a whole bag of the orangish powder.

Oops quoted the wrong person. W/e but like wwooooowww.

He also allegedly paid people $5,000 to kill his neighbor in Belize because he believed that the neighbor killed his dogs

Sounds like free market capitalism at its finest.

Only ACist I know IRL is a high school friend on FB whose mom and my mom were close. Dude’s father was just convicted of tax fraud for millions, family is about to lose everything. The fuck is it with these people?

Man Joe Rogan would love talking to him.

It would be insufferable but they’d fall in love with each other.

Also lol libertarians don’t exist anymore. This is the real world.

Uhh how is there a McAfee thread and this isn’t mentioned.

The fact that he didn’t get covid means he hasn’t had anybody shit in his mouth this year or that covid can’t spread from feces to digestive tract.

A friend of mine bought a water taxi business from him in Belize. He is legitimately insane based on this transaction alone.

They believe taxation is theft?

Everyone knows dump in the mouth is basically 1st base in ACBelize.
