Skip to comments.Forget Obamatax. Are you ready for global taxes?

Just when you think you've identified and outmaneuvered the enemy in front of you, another one comes sneaking up from behind. Yes, I know... you're all worried about the number of taxes in Obamacare and Taxmageddon coming in January. Perhaps you think that by simply electing some new people you'll be in the clear. Guess again.
You're living in the global economy now, so why not have some global taxes? Think I'm kidding? How about a global tax on all financial transactions?
Now a group of United Nations independent experts is pushing the European Union to back a global financial transaction tax ahead of the G-8 Summit to offset the costs of the enduring economic, financial, fuel, climate and food crises, and to protect basic human rights.
How about letting the UN tax all international air travel? Or maybe Turtle Bay should be allowed to tax us for our energy use based on carbon credits… or something?
And then there's my new favorite. Since Americans are so willing to let all levels of government pass sin taxes on things like cigarettes without much more than a peep, why not let the international community get in on the cash bandwagon?
Another subsidiary of the United Nations, the World Health Organization (WHO), is also looking to self-fund through global taxes. The WHO in 2010 publicly considered asking for global consumer taxes on internet activity, online bill paying, or the always popular financial transaction tax. Currently the WHO is pushing for increased excise taxes on cigarettes, but with an important condition that they get a slice of the added revenue. The so-called Solidarity Tobacco Contribution would provide billions of dollars to the WHO, but with no ability for taxpayers or national governments to monitor how the money is spent.
It’s truly a brave new world, comrades. If you’d care to light up a Marlboro or pour yourself a glass of beer, trivial things like having Washington pick your pocket are old hat. You should pay for your sins on a more global stage. Before you know it, they’ll be selling cigarettes from vending machines one at a time for five bucks a shot and bartenders will carry loan applications for when you’d like a cold one.
Welcome to the age of international peace and prosperity. Let’s all go light up a stogy, down a few shots of Jack Daniels and do some Trust Fall Down And Pass Outs.
We, the people, have been snookered.
can you say one world government?....we are headed there. It’s the plan. Reagan was our last great President. I see nothing even close to him being groomed. Think about it.... they’ve given us Clinton, Bush, Obama, McLame & Romney since....it’s the plan.
I have semi-precious metals. Lead, brass, copper.
News such as France’s AirBus building a factory in Alabama, blah blah blah.. Another NAIL in Uncle Sam’s coffin. Global economy first, World Government follows. American sovereignty, blur blur blur..
I’m ready to put my jackboot up someone’s backside.
You captured my thought before I could type it.
I only post to add that we should enhance the value of the heaviest of these metals by accelerating them at say ..... 2,900 feet per second?
you’re just a friggin’ ray of sunshine ain’t ya.
I guess I’ll haveta start working on that spaceship engine idea I had a few years back.......
Might take a little ride on J.G. line...
Looks like bartering and an underground market will be our future....
“...And it was decreed that all the world (civilization) should be taxed...”
Mimicking the true Christ....as was before the First Advent. Even mimicking the conditions, deception being set to bring in the counterfeit Anti-Kingdom. Led to believe in a lie.
First there is Global Taxing.
Then it is Climate Change.
Is Global Taxing going to result in no coins as change?
Obama sponsored the Global Poverty Act in the
E senate so I am not surprised.
Nicely presented in gift boxes of 50, for ease of storage.
Can be provided singularly upon request,Or for smaller transactions
All expensive metals you have wisely stored there .
Globalization is merely anothe step towards His plan, but won't be fully acheived as we resume the conflicts. Hold on tight - the ride will get even bumpier and there's really nothing substantial we can do about it. The Right has been sounding the alarm for decades and the Left has continued to take us down and even managed to destigmatize it's amoral/immoral/illegal behavior. Better to spend time talking up Christ than trying to "fix" what will not be fixed.
Gosh, much as I believe what I just wrote, it depresses the part of me that's firmly entrenched in earthly things.
