I think the whole world should just go communist. Everybody can stay home, do nothing and complain about how people in other countries are not paying their fair share into some other country’s Treasury. All these politicians should be locked up in a hospital for crazy people! Instead of fixing problems, all they want to do is figure out ways to pick other countries’ pockets.
France Taxes America: The Robin Hood Tax
The precedent here is outrageous. France is taxing Americans who hold French shares. And the example is likely to spread throughout the world. This is the beginning of a global attempt to tax the United States and make individual Americans liable for tax payments which will raise money for Third World dictators.
The UN and the European Union have long lusted after the American tax base and have wanted to find ways to get their hands on it. Now, France has led the way.
Been noticing a few persistent comments by someone who has a Facebook account…
Suzanne Iclef Herman · Top Commenter · Capilano College@Chuck, if you want to get angry about extraterritorial taxation, just research the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).
Bless her heart, she is replying to every stupid comment like this! I vote for her as an honorary Brocker! (or maybe she is incognito here.) It almost makes me want to sign up for a Facebook account to at least give her a thumbs up!
Then there is this one……
Haruo Chikamori · Top CommenterSuzanne, I think you’re pretty much speaking to the “wind” here. Unfortunately the US will do what the US does, inflict its extraterritorial taxation practices on eveyrone else with no regard for the Human Rights and Privacy Acts of those sovereign nations, tax the hell out of expats and then wonder why everyone else is angry and retaliatory when they act like an 800lb gorilla inflicting their own violations of other countries’ sovereignty. Disgusts the hell out of me to see the outrage on here when many of these same idiots here probably rah-rah’d when Obama signed the HIRE Act that FATCA rode in on.
I don’t know how you can still resist the siren call of Facebook lol.
I think I dislike Zuckerberg as much as the IRS. 🙂 That is not a trap I will willingly enter. It is run by the CIA 🙂
I “like” that 🙂
“I’m a big fan of any social networking site – it allows me to interact with my fans without having to see, hear or smell them.” Classic Onion – LOL.
Why leave a high tax / high penalty country? Why does a dog lick its balls?
Apparently Hollande would rather have 75% of nothing.
The UN has been trying to implement a global financial transaction tax to fund their world-wide power grab for years. France under Hollande is simply jumping the gun, probably under command of those who pull the strings in both the UN and France. Since Canada is THE WORST globalist-tool country on the planet, I am actually surprised that France managed to implement this transaction tax first. You guys are sleeping at the wheel! At least some Republicans in the US had the sense to resist the latest UN power grab in their “Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities”. I am certain Canada and France have already ratified it, doing their part to help suck the rest of the planet into complete globalist-fascist domination.
Canada is THE preferred PC tool of the UN (and the OECD) with France following closely behind. You guys are just as much at the root of us expats being a target for the global tax jihad as the liberals in the US who vote for Schumer, Levin and Durbin. In fact, I’d say that Canadians are mired even deeper in the liberal PC fantasy bubble than Hollywood.
What is this, kick Canada day?
Confederate. Nice to see you back here. No one has been sleeping at the wheel. I was very aware of this situation since the times that people were calling it a Tobin Tax, which it is. Please, give us some serious sources to back up what you say here about Canada. It makes no sense. Source, sources, sources…
Canada, in spite of our short comings and for what it’s worth still warrants a AAA credit rating:
Hey, “Just Me”…the last comment (Haruo Chikamori) is ME…The_Animal, your resident Canadian Isaac Brock rabble-rouser. Just wanted to shake the “maracas” of “STOOPID USA” at those huff-n’puff homelanders.
Where did the comments go? Did the Dick Morris not like the responses? He may be so used to Rethuglicans back slapping him for so many of his wrong-headed opinions that he couldn’t take the reality check he was getting on this particular piece of snit.
*saw the comments still there, just fine. 🙂
I switched to Safari and the comments were there but they are still missing with Camino. This happens sometimes with videos posted here at Brock too.
I see it still there too. Thanks for doing it. I couldn’t comment, as no Facebook account, although I would have liked to have posted my comment above. You are welcome to use any of it, if you want to post another one! Dick Morris is embarrassing with such a inane post. If we are going to depend on the likes of him to de-rail FATCA, there is no hope. In some ways, I hope he doesn’t say anything about FATCA, as it will be dismissed by any thinking person as the ravings of a nut case.
@geeez: you need sources that prove that Canada is a UN/Globalist lackey???? The “no-fly zone” and consequent bombing of Libya was made with major Canadian participation. Then there is Canada’s participation in the rape of Afghanistan. Wherever the PC-globalist-diversity-multiculti fascists rear their ugly heads you can be certain that Canada is at the forefront. If its about social justice warm and fuzzies its about Canada too. Global Warming? Socialized welfare state healthcare fascism? UN sanctioned compassion bombing?
From the beginning of the English empire Canadian militarism has been a major tool used by the ruling elites to extend their power. Boer war, WWI, WWII, Korea, Libya all provide plenty of examples of Canadian militarism being used to support the elites.
Now these global elites are squeezing the wealth out of the wests middle classes. It is a systematic plan to close all the escape hatches like the Nazi’s did in the Warsaw ghetto. They are all in on it and Canada is at the forefront. Canadian Liberals refuse to recognize this (and many other unpleasant realities) because it contradicts their world view in so many ways. So they cling to their core Marxist values like social justice, global warming, “tax fairness”, etc, while blaming the IRS and FATCA for the latest symptoms their own blatant enslavement.
ConfH. I’ve got one thing to say to you and that’s this. I don’t give a rat’s ass what sort of conspiracy BS you’ve got ccoking in that mind of yours. You want to go around screaming about “enslavement and the government conspiracy” go the hell ahead, but if you want to do something concrete. Why don’t you provide a solution rather than conspiracy theories. OTHERWISE CORK IT!!!
