International Wealth Transfer…

Because it’s not just the lazy asses underprivileged in the U.S. that want to steal need the results of your labor.

From Fox News:

World Health Organization Moving Ahead on Billions in Internet and Other Taxes

The World Health Organization is moving full speed ahead with a controversial plan to impose billions of dollars in global consumer taxes on such things as Internet activity and everyday financial transactions like paying bills online — while its spending soars and its own financial house is in disarray

A bunch of technocrats, bureaucrats and academics playing “Do as I say, not as I do.”

The aim of its taxing plans is to raise "tens of billions" of dollars for WHO that would be used to radically reorganize the research, development, production and distribution of medicines around the world, with greater emphasis on drugs for communicable diseases in poor countries…

Notice that the money would not go to those “in need” – instead it would go to, (surprise!!!), the WHO for “research, development, production and distribution” of drugs.  Because under what’s left of capitalism, no other entity is doing those things right now, and a quasi-government organization can always do a better, more efficient, economical and ethical job than a private company.

In effect, the plan amounts to a pharmaceutical version of the U.N.-sponsored climate-change deal that failed to win global approval at Copenhagen last December. If implemented as the experts suggest, it could easily involve the same kind of wealth transfers as the failed Copenhagen summit, which will send $30 billion a year to poor nations, starting this year…

Shit, they’re not even denying the wealth transfer goals anymore.  If they can’t get their hands on your “wealth” one way, they will try another – and another, until they are successful.

This is the end game of all socialists – not to help struggling people raise themselves up on the socio-economic ladder, but to ensure equal poverty and squalor across national boundaries.

Almost casually, the panel’s report notes that the fundraising effort would involve global changes in legal structures — and policing. As the report puts it: "Introducing a new tax or expanding an existing tax may require legal changes, nationally and internationally and ongoing regulation to ensure compliance."

“Global changes in legal structures and policing…”

Bring it Bitches.  And when you do, you’d better not bring it weak.

One of these days the talking will be over and the citizens of the United States will have to decide whether or not they want to remain free.

    Yarrr… Put yer cutlass back in yer scabbard, Blackbeard. The WHO doesn’t have the authority to tax anyone. The first sentence is really misleading: “The World Health Organization is moving full speed ahead with a controversial plan to impose billions of dollars in global consumer taxes . . . .” Since the WHO doesn’t have the authority to impose taxes, that statement is pretty damn close to an outright lie.

    Later in the article the reader finds out that the WHO is actually thinking of asking governments to impose taxes on its behalf. Likelihood of success in the US? Zero. American politicians know that raising taxes is almost political suicide. The taxes have to benefit the politicians’ constituencies. The WHO doesn’t meet that requirement. This is just sensationalist bullshit.

    The real danger is that the U.S. approves increased payments to the U.N. that could then be used to fund this program. Where does the U.S. get the money to support the U.N.? Your pocket. More spending means more taxes whether it is specifically earmarked for a particular program or not. Of course, if citizens got wind of this happening, there’d likely be hell to pay.

    Don’t ya love this? Nunya pulls you back from the brink and I nudge you back towards it! With friends like this, you’re liable to lose your mind.

    “With friends like this, you’re liable to lose your mind.”

    You say that in the future tense – like it isn’t already a foregone conclusion.

    Look at today’s post titled “Logic.” I guess we all just like messin’ with people’s minds…
