W.H.O. Eyeing Global Tax on Banking & Internet Activity

Yep - taxing the Internet.

What else from the folks who brought you the SARS scare, the bird flu scare, and much hyped H1N1 scare. Apparently their H1N1 scam didn't net the proceeds they expected, so it seems the WHO needs more $$ to come up with more falsified research and man-made viruses in order to terrorize us into giving them our hard-earned cash.

U.N.'s World Health Organization Eyeing[sic} Global Tax on Banking, Internet Activity

The World Health Organization (WHO) is considering a plan to ask governments to impose a global consumer tax on such things as Internet activity or everyday financial transactions like paying bills online.

Such a scheme could raise "tens of billions of dollars" on behalf of the United Nations' public health arm from a broad base of consumers, which would then be used to transfer drug-making research, development and manufacturing capabilities, among other things, to the developing world.

The multibillion-dollar "indirect consumer tax" is only one of a "suite of proposals" for financing the rapid transformation of the global medical industry that will go before WHO's 34-member supervisory Executive Board at its biannual meeting in Geneva.

The idea is the most lucrative — and probably the most controversial — of a number of schemes proposed by a 25-member panel of medical experts, academics and health care bureaucrats who have been working for the past 14 months at WHO's behest on "new and innovative sources of funding" to accomplish major shifts in the production of medical R&D.

—a 10 per cent tax on the international arms trade, "which might net about $5 billion per annum";

—a "digital tax or 'hit' tax." The report says the levy "could yield tens of billions of U.S. dollars from a broad base of users";

If they truly wanted to help, then they need to get the F rid of Big Pharma, use natural remedies which have been around since the beginning. They don't need to make drugs, imo. I will admit, however, that SOME technology is honestly helpful, like laser surgery and the like...

Tax on online bill payment

In your summary, you left out the most onerous of all of WHO's proposed taxes:

—a financial transaction tax. The report approvingly cites a levy in Brazil that charged 0.38 percent on bills paid online and on unspecified "major withdrawals." The report says the Brazilian tax was raising an estimated $20 billion per year until it was cancelled for unspecified reasons.

So much for the efficiency the Internet has brought us -- a governmental organization sees that money is being saved on paper, printing, stamps, and fuel and sees an opportunity for a tax to take up the slack.

Ask and it shall be given

Seems to be all Obama and his cronies can say to these global tyrants....so I am pessimistic.

Nice summary at the top of this post about what WHO has done. Those creeps.
