The ends this government will go to in order to ensure that they get their pound of flesh, and that the moos modify their behavior are ABSOLUTELY ASTOUNDING! It’s time to slam a triple espresso America and mount up.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) this week released a report that said taxing people based on how many miles they drive is a possible option for raising new revenues and that these taxes could be used to offset the costs of highway maintenance at a time when federal funds are short.
The report discussed the proposal in great detail, including the development of technology that would allow total vehicle miles traveled (VMT) to be tracked, reported and taxed, as well as the pros and cons of mandating the installation of this technology in all vehicles.
“In the past, the efficiency costs of implementing a system of VMT charges — particularly the costs of users’ time for slowing and queuing at tollbooths — would clearly have outweighed the potential benefits from more efficient use of highway capacity,” CBO wrote. “Now, electronic metering and billing are making per-mile charges a practical option.”
The report was requested by Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), who held a hearing on transportation funding in early March. In that hearing, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said the Obama administration is hoping to spend $556 billion over the next six years, much of which would go to federal transportation improvement projects.
Conrad said in response that federal funds are tight, and in asking for recommendations on how to raise that money, he noted the possibility of a VMT tax as a way to solve the problem of collecting less in taxes as people move to more fuel-efficient vehicles.
What an excellent idea considering a gallon of gas is only going to increase exponentially with every Middle Eastern country that caves to globalist schemes and pressure.
I guess you American moos haven’t yet figured out that you all need to be unemployed, on food stamps and waiting in the bread lines for your overlord to promise you free gas and rent while your children starve to death. Hurry up already! Stop being so resourceful! Stop being so resilient and just roll over for the NWO globalists!
How The World Works: March 25, 2011 News and Mileage Tax:
I just received this message via email from G. Edward Griffin about Glenn Beck devoting his entire Friday show to the Federal Reserve and it’s founding at Jekyll Island. Hopefully, Beck will do right by Mr. Griffin’s research and let millions of Americans in on the dirty little secret of the globalists from way back in 1910. For those that still have not seen Mr. Griffin’s 1994 lecture on this subject, you can find the videos on “The Fed” page at the top of this blog, or just hit this link.
GLENN BECK WILL PLUG
The Creature from Jekyll Island
On Friday 2011 March 25, the entire Glenn Beck show will be devoted to an exposé of the Federal Reserve. I was invited to be a guest on the program and, when it was taped last Tuesday, I was amazed to find that Beck, not only has read the book but praised it highly. In fact, almost his entire opening monologue was based on the information and, in some cases, the very same phrases used in the book and in my lectures. I was delighted to know that someone, either Beck or his researchers, had spent a great deal of time studying The Creature from Jekyll Island. But what is even more encouraging is that several million viewers will be exposed to an hour of economic and monetary truth. This will bring us a giant step closer to actually slaying the Creature.
The reason I am writing to you is that this media exposure will open up many minds that previously were closed on this topic. Now is the time to reach out to friends, neighbors, and leaders with an invitation to read the book. We must strike while the iron is hot. So I am putting the book on special sale for the next week to encourage you to acquire a few extra copies either to give away or sell. Through the rest of March, the book, which retails at $24.50 alone or $19.60 with any additional purchase, will be on sale for $19.50 alone or $15.60 with additional purchase. We still have about 50 copies left of the previous 4th edition, and those will be on sale this week as long as they last for $14 in any quantity.
If I were president, on Day One I would issue an executive order paving the way for Obamacare waivers to all 50 states. The executive order would direct the Secretary of Health and Human Services and all relevant federal officials to return the maximum possible authority to the states to innovate and design health-care solutions that work best for them.
As I have stated time and again, a one-size-fits-all national plan that raises taxes is simply not the answer. Under our federalist system, the states are “laboratories of democracy.” They should be free to experiment. By the way, what works in one state may not be the answer for another. Of course, the ultimate goal is to repeal Obamacare and replace it with free-market reforms that promote competition and lower health-care costs. But since an outright repeal would take time, an executive order is the first step in returning power to the states.
I only have one thing to say about Mitt Romney’s attempt to position himself for a presidential nomination…
P.A.T.H.E.T.I.C. (on, oh, so many levels).
If this is what Romney thinks will swing support his way, he is so far behind the current patriotic ideological trend that he isn’t even in the same hemisphere with the rest of us, (not that he ever was; being another progressive plant for the globalists).
I would like to let Practical Madman know that he has absolutely and thoroughly scared the bejesus out of the Monster (that takes some doing) with the following video. If dutchsinse‘s hypothesis that Japan may be collapsing into the ocean is even partially true, the resulting tsunami will wash over the Hawaiian islands and much of the west coast of the mainland (not to mention other parts of the world). In the meantime, check out his attached links and hit his channel for some up-to-date information about the world earthquakes and the radiation dispersal patterns.

In 2009, the Federal Reserve made a record $52.1 billion; a 47% increase over 2008. They just reamed us again, and don’t even think to tell me that the current $79.3 billion being turned over to the treasury allows any reprieve. Those billions in profit they made were INTEREST ON LOANS…and our government is HOW FAR IN DEBT because of the Federal Reserve ‘Credit Card’, and who do you really think is paying all that interest in the end? Yep; the producers of the nation.
The Federal Reserve turned a record $81.7 billion profit in 2010, up 53 percent from 2009, the central bank reported Tuesday.
The vast majority of the Fed’s profit — $79.3 billion — will be turned over to the Treasury Department, with the rest being paid out to member banks in dividends.
A substantial chunk of that profit came from increased interest income from the $1 trillion in mortgage-backed securities the Fed purchased during the financial crisis to help stabilize the housing market. The Fed made $24.4 billion more in interest on those holdings in 2010. The central bank also made $3.5 billion in interest from its increased holdings in Treasury bonds, as it buys up Treasury debt in an effort to boost private lending.
While the Fed is still reaping profits from its intervention into the financial system during the crisis, it is beginning to wind down other areas where it had stepped in. Loans given to insurance giant American International Group, Inc. (AIG) declined slightly in 2010 to $20.6 billion, from $21.3 billion in 2009. As a result, the Fed made roughly $1 billion less in interest on those loans.
For those that still don’t know about the round-robin of looting, moving, and stealing your hard earned cash, here is a simple explanation of the Federal Reserve:
Most Americans believe that the Federal Reserve is part of the government. They are wrong. It is a privately held corporation owned by stockholders. The Federal Reserve System is owned by the largest banks in the United States. There are Class A, B, and C shareholders. The owner banks and their shares in the Federal Reserve are a secret. Why is this a secret? It is likely that the biggest banks in the country are the major shareholders. Does this explain why Citicorp (C), Bank of America (BAC) and JP Morgan (JPM), despite being insolvent, are being propped up by Ben Bernanke and Timothy Geithner?
The history of National Banks in the United States has been controversial since the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. The Constitution of the United States unequivocally states that only Congress has the authority to coin money, not an independent bank owned by unknown bankers.
I and many other people keep screaming that the private banking cartel known as the Federal Reserve System is an absolute insanity hoisted on us by robber-barons and progressives at the beginning of the 20th century. Think about it, a private bank prints our money, loans it to us, and then charges us insane amounts of interest. How freakin’ crazy is that? I could have sworn that a Founding Father or two were completely against the idea of a central bank…
Now that same private banking cartel just made a record profit last year on the backs of Americans due to a collapsing banking industry because of a housing market bubble they allowed to grow. Are You Ready To Abolish The Fed? I know what it means to get rid of the central bank, but do you? No more credit card for the government.
WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO STOP BUYING THEIR PRODUCT?
GOOD LORD! SAVE US FROM THIS MILQUETOAST who doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of beating the Obama foreign money and globalist influence machine…No offense Tim; save your money because you ain’t got it going on…
