As you will have no doubt read in the headlines today, the IMF has proposed levying two “global” taxes on the world’s banks to make sure those greedy guys don’t get us into trouble again. If that sounds dubious, it’s because it is. In reality what is being proposed, and has been falling into place for some time, is the framework for an unelected global authority with powers above and beyond those of sovereign governments.

Hmmm, I wonder if this new taxation (without representation, i might add) will be applied equally to the super elite who are in charge of constructing this tax framework? At least Canadas finance minister *pretends* to be against this obviously unjust tithe. (until he sells us out of course!)
^ the above wondering was completely sarcastic, for anyone wondering.
