    Get a Clue - Vint Has Secured the Funding .ORG.NET

    Get a Clue - Vint Has Secured the Funding .ORG.NET

    Vinton Cerf is an ex-DOD DARPA Funding Manager.
    It is all about funding to keep sending humanoids
    to the next forum to dominate all discussions.

    99% of the rest of the U.S. citizens could not
    care less and are being migrated far away from
    ICANN .ORG and Vinton Cerf's ISOC.

    Protect your .KIDS, they are the future. They
    have to be educated about the ISOC insiders,
    who they are, and how they operate.

    Paul Twomey is Laughing All the Way to the Bank

    How foolish can the U.S. Government be allowing
    someone from Australia to come and pick the
    pockets of U.S. citizens to the tune of over
    $500,000 per year ?

    Paul Twomey and Ira Magaziner created an
    off-shore tax haven and the soft money flows to
    Argo Pacific.

    Asia Pacific Delivers on Low-Cost Wage Earners

    Asia Pacific Delivers on Low-Cost Wage Earners

    One has to wonder why ICANN wastes $500,000
    per year on Paul Twomey when the going rate
    in Asia Pacific is $50,000.

    http://www.aptld.org/newsite/meeting/2 005/07_Singapore/gm-paper.htm


    The proposed salary is USD $40-50,000, inclusive of all government taxes, charges, levies etc.

    Disbursements will include a travel budget for pursuit of outreach and attendance at APTLD Members’ Meetings of USD $15,000 for the first year’s activities, and an amount of USD $100/week ($5,200/yr) for overhead costs (office, phone, internet access, etc).
