Britain’s Oxford University Press recently asked a children’s author to avoid mentioning anything pig, sausage or pork related, due to their global audience. I guess I better hurry up and buy several copies of Animal Farm by British author George Orwell! How else will my grandchild learn what it means when I say the American government is made up of a bunch of pork driven pig’s who should be made into sausage?
Our pigs on Capitol Hill are impacting the entire world with their relatively new US tax code, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, better known as FATCA, a tax nightmare that began with a law that has been on the books since the Civil War, citizen-based taxation (CBT). It is a law that states American citizens shall forever be liable for income taxation by the United States, wherever their money is made and wherever they live.
According to the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution, anyone born in the United States is a de facto US citizen regardless of whatever other citizenship they may hold in their lifetime. Therefore, anyone with a US birth certificate is forever taxable by the US, even if they have never lived there as a adult or earned any money there.
CBT began with the intent to collect revenue from anyone who left America to avoid their military responsibilities. It’s punitive provisions require that people who receive no services from the USA, no payments from the US government, have no property, no investments, or no monetary ties, must file complex returns.
In 2008, Obama signed the (HIRE) Act, “Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment, seemingly humanitarian legislation to help the veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Included in the legislation that no one bothered to read was how HIRE would be funded; FATCA (HR2847) would allow the US government to recoup money it was losing to overseas tax havens. The little known law went into effect last July 1st, 2014.
FATCA is one of the most piggy, arrogant and immoral pieces of legislation to ever emanate from the US capitol. All other nations on earth practice residence-based taxation (RBT). In addition, Intergovernmental Agreements (IGAs) now allow the US piggy bankers to break the once sacred privacy laws of the foreign countries in which the financial institutions are located.
But, why did the Washington “FATCATs” enact FATCA for the measly 900 million or so annual dollars it collects? The FATCAT pigs real purpose was to clear the way for a global FATCA, informally known as GATCHA (A more fitting acronym would have been GOTCHA, but close enough) a new global standard where there will be an automatic exchange of financial information between governments, a permanent record of all your financial information available to be shared in an instant with local and global government agencies…and ultimately, the catalyst for the New World Order hog chow feast, a global tax.
In Animal Farm, unlike the other animals, the pigs live in luxury and enjoy the benefits of the society they help control, showcasing the inequality and true hypocrisy of communism. “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” The American people can easily identify with Animal Farm, for the president and many of our legislator’s are greedy pig’s, just like in the classic tale.
There is an old Wall Street saying about excessive greed that affects your judgement; Bulls make money, bears make money, pigs get slaughtered. Pigs eventually lose, but let’s make sure. Forget the fences at our southern borders, forget wasting our farmer’s corn on ethanol, forget worrying about Muslims being appointed to high security positions. Fence off Washington D.C., feed the pigs some corn, scare the Muslims away…and with the help of the C.I.A. (Catch It All) our troubles will be over…..in hog heaven, as they say.
