A 1 percent tax on billionaires around the world. A tax on all currency trading in the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen and the British pound sterling. Another tiny tax on all financial transactions, including stock and bond trading, and trading in financial derivatives. New taxes on carbon emissions and on airline tickets. A royalty on all undersea mineral resources extracted more than 100 miles offshore of any nations territory.
The United Nations is at it again: finding new and innovative ways to create global taxes that would transfer hundreds of billions, and even trillions, of dollars from the rich nations of the world especially the U.S. to poorer ones, in line with U.N.-directed economic, social and environmental development.
These latest global tax proposals have received various forms of endorsement at U.N. meetings over the spring and summer, and will be entered into the record during the 67th U.N. General Assembly session, which began this week. The agenda for the entire session, lasting through December, is scheduled to be finalized on Friday.

NO WAY!!! WHY DO WE HAVE TO PAY FOR PEOPLE THAT WANT TO KILL US. I HEARD OCCUPY WALL STREET WANTS A CLIMATE TAX? I WOULD HOPE THIS DOESN’T PASS CONSIDERING THEY DON’T HAVE JOBS TO PAY FOR THE TAX!! THIS IS SOCIALISM AT IT’S FINEST! I WANT OBAMA MONEY TO PAY FOR THIS CRAP; WON’T BE MINE!
Gotta spread it around.
Gotta take from those who have and give it to those who don’t.
Anti colonialism at work. 2016 calls it.
They have a better chance of seeing God before I pay a global and climate tax!!
I was just thinking taxes are way too low. :)
“When in the course of human events....”
i WILL NOT be paying these taxes
if they push these taxes via our tax code, i WILL NOT pay it
— NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION —
(it’s bad enough with the crap representative i’ve got)
Re-elect Obama and this will happen. He is a UN shill. NWO guy. He was sent to destroy America and bring America down in line with the rest of the world.
Nobody knows, but people around here, how bad the next years can get.
“A 1 percent tax on billionaires around the world. A tax on all currency trading in the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen and the British pound sterling. Another “tiny” tax on all financial transactions, including stock and bond trading, and trading in financial derivatives. New taxes on carbon emissions and on airline tickets.

This will kill the world economy.
Get US out of the UN!!!!!
Someone needs to develop a UN-free investment portfolio.
They don't care -- they're the reincarnation of the movable feast that for years consumed the fat of the land under Louis XIV, XV, and XVI, sitting at Versailles admiring themselves in the Hall of Mirrors or lounging around the palaces and big houses of Paris.
A high-school friend married a Danish diplomat 40 years ago; he was posted to the floating island of lotus eaters that wanders between New York and Geneva, parasitizing the governments of the world (but preeminently ours). It was sometimes challenging, she said, but someone had to go to all the parties!
A few years ago, an Asian U.N. bureaucrat, a fonctionnaire, came to the American Midwest to give a little talk, to get up in front of all the yayhoo American farmers, the little people, and tell them how the cow ate the cabbage, and how things were going to be. They should have hanged him on the spot.
That’s me, exactly. I will drop completely off the face of the earth first. Go ahead and try it!
Like ObamaCARE, Moslems will be exempt.
In fact, I think I've found a tax I like. We should be required to pay the Useless Nations 10% of our ammo per year. Those of us "wealthy" in terms of ammunition, should be required to 'pay' more.
