But they generally don't lie about things that are easily and readily confirmed.
They do if it keeps tens of millions of half-wits chasing ridiculous false statements instead of actually paying attention to what they are actually doing.
Zuckerberg's lawyer, Keoni Shultz of the firm Cades Schutte, in a statement to CNBC said, "It is common in Hawaii to have small parcels of land within the boundaries of a larger tract, and for the title to these smaller parcels to have become broken or clouded over time."
"In some cases, co-owners may not even be aware of their interests,"
Start with the understanding that the declaration is from an atorney for Zuckpunk. And even given his obvious and perfectly legitimate bias he makes no claim that the statement is all inclusive. It is not a blanket assessment. It is not predetermined that all property owners have the same situations, knowledge of ownership, desire for ownership, or unpaid tax liabilities. It instead suggests that while a person with a shared ownership of a parcel might be fully vested in remaining an owner, other co-owners of that parcel might not know that they also have stake in the land.
In fact the only place that the article even mentions taxes is in the case of a single partial owner of a particular parcel.
One of that worker's great-grandchildren, Carlos Andrade, 72, lived on the property until recently, the paper said. But the retired university professor told the Star-Advertiser that he is helping Zuckerberg's case as a co-plaintiff in an effort to make sure the land is not surrendered to the county if no one in his extended clan steps up to take responsibility for paying property taxes on the plots.
