Pete Stark Proposes Currency Tax: Currency Tax Mimics UN's Millennium Goal
Maggie's Notebook ^ | July 21, 2010 | Maggie M. Thornton

Posted on 07/22/2010 9:33:26 AM PDT by maggiesnotebook

Democrat Congressman Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) introduced a bill to create a tax on currency yesterday. He says it will create a U.S. fund to assist developing countries with the impacts of global warming, and create a Global Health Trust Fund to fight HIV/AIDS, and other diseases, and well as funding Obama's pledge to the U.N.

This legislation is right out of the U.N.'s Millennium Development Goal, which Obama is required to follow if his Global Poverty Bill ever passes.

There will be a worldwide freeze on armed forces and a 25% cut in production and export of major weapons and small arms - with a "build-down of conventional forces

Good Lord, we will pay for our own demise.

The barbarians are at the gates........the traitors are in power, this has to stop.

Taxation Without Representation didn't work out well.

But this Taxation With Representation idea isn't working for me either.

He says it will create a U.S. fund to assist developing countries

Like paying a tea tax to the king in England?

This politician is not representing the people of this country. His allegiance is elsewhere.

Why the excerpt? Is there profanity or something that shouldn't be posted here?

We're in a huge recession, millions are without jobs, the deficit will take generations to pay off, illegals are sucking up the resources like never before - and this idiot wants to send welfare checks to every person on the globe??
What does he think we are? Does he think he can just crack his whip and his beasts of burden will cower in fear before him?

Fortney “Pete” Stark needs an old-fashioned, Southern ass kicking. Figuratively and maybe literally.

Since we stopped developing after electing the cypher, why are we still required to help others develop? I thought development was bad and raped the environment and gave Al Gore impacted chakra. How can it now be considered good? I am confused. Can any Freeper with an Ivy League degree please sort this out for me?

Perhaps we should start referring to him by his full and proper name;

I had to check because it was so difficult to believe, but there actually is a Mrs. Stark. It boggles the mind. I hope all four of their children rebelled appropriately and are wonderful Christians who will eventually (better sooner than later!) change his hate-filled mind about his Savior.

Pass a law imposing a tax on senility, and use it to take all of Fortney’s obscene personal fortune, much of which, I believe, has been realized after he was elected to the House.

Definitely literally. Hey, I’m Southern, I’d volunteer to apply a boot up his ass.
