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

The World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' public health arm, is moving full speed ahead with a controversial plan to impose 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.

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.

The irony is that the WHO push to take a huge bite out of global consumers comes as the organization is having a management crisis of its own, juggling finances, failing to use its current resources efficiently, or keep its costs under control — and it doesn't expect to show positive results in managing those challenges until a year from now, at the earliest.

Fox News initially reported last January on the "suite of proposals" for "new and innovative sources of funding," prepared by a 25-member panel of medical experts, academics and health care bureaucrats, when it was presented of a meeting of WHO's 34-member Executive Board in Geneva.

Now the proposals are headed for the four-day annual meeting of the 193-member World Health Assembly, WHO's chief legislative organ, which begins in Geneva on May 17.

Here we go Kiddies!!!

The NWO & your leaders of ~The Brave New World~ have thrown the the curtain away and are now operating completely in the open need to hide....

This should be of no suprise and should ~hopefully~ wake up a few more sleeping zombies...hopefully...

You beat me to it! I also posted this article ~ probably at the exact same time you were.
I guess we're both as outraged about this & wanted to spread the word.
Good thing we weren't in a Mexican stand-off!

link's hard to gauge what's been posted as the newest list takes a minute to update and thread titles are sometimes misleading, compared to the actual headline of the original articles...

I'm waiting for a few more riots & strikes to break out soon over all this ~carp~...

Where do these people get off just making up things and imposing this stuff!

ETA: after looking at the post time stamp I beat ya by 2 minutes

It's OK that we posted the same article. It is difficult to keep up with the threads. Afterall, news seems to be happening faster than most are capable of reading & absorbing.

To answer your question: They are not human. They have obviously been possessed by some evil demons of yore who are jealous that they didn't have the Internet when they walked the Earth, so now we must all pay for it.

I just don't know how much more people will take. Most can't afford necessities as it is, & now they want to impose taxes on our last form of free speech & expression. It truly does seem as though they're bullying us into riots & rebellion.

As i said in the other thread.

Is there a law US citizens have to follow if they impose an internet tax?

What if one refuses to pay these taxes?

is the UN going to come to my house and arrest me for refusing to pay an international tax which is unconstitutional?

People are going to be PISSED OFF... me included.

IMHO, what they would probably do is tax the Internet providers, thus causing them to tax us. It's the trickle doen theory at its best.

It's just gotten so ridiculous...

They build this giant it into the ground and when they can't run it/pay for it, just decide they have to raise some more cash...

I don't remember asking them to start this service in the first place...

Why is it ~they~ think they know better than everyone else and impose their will upon us?
