Posted on 09/25/2012 5:23:41 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
In remarks this morning to the Clinton Global Initiative, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton proposed a radical idea: a global tax on elites around the world.
"One of the issues that I have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner, especially from the elites in every country," Clinton said to laughter from the audience. "You know Im out of American politics, but (applause) it is a fact that around the world, the elites of every country are making money."
Clinton continued her rift on the rich. "There are rich people everywhere. And yet they do not contribute to the growth of their own countries."
The secretary of state suggested that the rich around the world do not give back to their communities. "They dont invest in public schools, in public hospitals, in other kinds of development internally," said Clinton.
She continued, saying that it is up to foreign leaders to make the change. "And so it means for leaders telling powerful people things they dont want to hear," Clinton said.
"It means being transparent about budgets and revenues and bringing corruption to light. And when that happens, we shouldnt punish countries for uncovering corruption. We should reward them for doing so. And it means putting in place regulations designed to attract and protect investment."

They think that their contribution is coming up with the idea and then being in charge of distributing the money of others. i.e. "from each according to their ability".
Clearly they and other marxists think their ability is administering the wealth of others.
Good luck on that corruption thing in most of the world. Huma must have gotten Hillary some really good Afghan hashish or Lebanese honey oil before she wrote that speech. Otherwise, how could she possibly think scolding the Chinese, Russians, Africans, etc., was going to get those guys to give up their billions?
That is right!...Her fat bottom has no room to talk about corruption...she lived every day of it, and still flaunted it in the face of all American citizens
...they probably give NOTHING of their OWN to Charity!!
Slick Willie deducts his used skivvies as a charitable deduction!
Is this satire? I can’t tell anymore..
a 103% wealth tax on George Soros would be hunky-dory with me...
I had to read re-read and re-re-read this 3x, to make sure it wasn’t satire. OMG. We’re getting closer to SHTF, every day.
All three are equally repulsive and crooked, and will come to no good end...
Does one have to be worse?? They’re both so bad that minor distinctions are meaningless.
But if I had to choose, I’d say Hilary was.
Its a crazy idea but how about following the USC? I mean, its such a radical idea it just might work!
“Our Founding Fathers would have started shooting by now.”
You’re right but I don’t know if you’re allowed to say it anymore.
Secretary of State Clinton acts differently these days. It’s as though her chip has been changed out or something. I’m extremely uncomfortable watching her and listening is not even possible. Her voice inflection is something undefinable. It’s like she knows what she knows and when she knew it.
Chairman Comrade clinton
She is a proud, self-professed “Progressive” disciple of the Marxist, Saul Alinsky.
She and her horn-dog HINO should be thrown off the public stage and banished to some Marxist haven, where all their ill-gotten gains would belong to the ruling czars.
I’d say Hilary was.
Without a doubt. She still has a position of power. Not to mention she could still run in 2016.
First ——Hillary aint exactly poor herself.
Whaere are her donations listed on her tax returns. How much is this wench giving back.
Second-—Hillary wants a world wide tax on the rich because this country is getting ready to steal all they can from hard working people who have made a few bucks and she knows they will run to other countries. She wants to stop that running by making it impossible to find a place to run to.
Third we know Politicians who tax the rich will leave themselves loophoes you could drive a truck through. Even Democrats aren’t stupid enough to raise their own taxes.
Persistent rumors suggest that Hilary is not immune to the power of such charms, either. Although in this instance, she appears more in sympathy with looters.
And I demand a tax on butt-ugly female politicians. If their faces and lumpy bodies are to be paraded across the tv screens during news broadcasts they should be taxed....or bitch slapped!
Our Founding Fathers would have started shooting
by now about 30 years ago.
