Not surprising from an ass hat like Dodd.
Why does this not surprise me, this needs to be stopped:
check this out, government wants everyone's credit card records, Ebay and Paypal records now, this needs to be stopped:
Do you really want there to be a government record of your sales, what you spend your money on, your buyng habits. Everyone needs to do something about this one, get involved and stop these nut cases...
Not surprising from an ass hat like Dodd.
Hmmm, it would seem that congress doesn't trust all of us to voluntarily pay our fair share of the tax burden. Now I wonder where they would get that impression?
The sheer volume of all that data would totally sink the combined forces of NSA, IRS and DOJ. I think they've figured out how easily we are controlled by threats, first it was terrorism now it's the boogie(tax)man.
We are a nation of patRIOTic tax cheats, we love our country because our taxes are strictly optional, oh unless we happen to be a poor sod working for someone else and a W2...
You guys are lucky you don't live in the UK. The whole economy is tax driven and there's nothing voluntary about it.
I've been reading the Tao Te Ching. One of the lines reads "people heavily taxed produce nothing."
David is correct, if this thing goes through the amount of data will sink the IRS so deep in paperwork, agents will be jumping out the windows. This is one of those things they will use selectively I'm sure, thats where the danger is.
Email your representatives in Congress and tell them this is a stupid idea.
Spence, you guys are taxed to shit, but if you are stone broke and down on your luck and get sick your health care system takes care of you. Over here, you DIE in such a situation, or if you're lucky enough that some medical facility will even look at you, you'll be in debt the rest of your life paying it off. Its a common occurence in the USA. We are rapidly becoming the world's newest third world nation...
Actually our health service is funded by involuntary tax. A scary amount of people die in our hospitals from C Deficille and MRSA. Level of care is also age-related. When my Mother was nealry killed after an operation gone wrong, I was told just to accept the ineveitable as she was getting on a bit anyway. She was 52 at the time.
Wow, 52 is OLD, I must be dead then....
In the U.K it has just been announced that some internet providers are going to give other people your internet habits of where you have been and what you like.
This is not right. As long as you are doing nothing illegal it is no ones business what you view, listen or read on the net.
Is Big Brother is watching you at this very moment? Better put some clothes on me think!
Ah, great to be Canadian. Taxes not too bad, free healthcare, nobody carries a gun for "protection". Did you know that it's legal in Ontario for women to go topless? Yep, passed that one a couple years ago
Big Brother is always watching, especially since Bush has been in office.
Next will be the change to Amero and then credit chip placed in your hand
Hate to sound Pessimistic but my gosh, the hi gas cost alone is scary enough.
We all know where this will possibly lead too.
Better stock up on gold!
Well I couldn't help but to chime in on this but hesitent to do so since some here think I'm out there. I have warned folks about this coming and no one wants to think it can happen but first they will say they need to tax the internet, and then between them and the credit card companies saying to many folks getting identity stolen I think they will push a few forms of electronic credit cards, then the Rfid chip as the final credit security. total control by not big brother but the money changers that hide behind the scenes who really are trying to control us all.
Will it get to that final point or will some one from the west say FU to America as we try to take them over then they will let loose with the nuclear bombs
I think the government would find my spending habits, and even my phone conversations, extremely boring, but I do think they have other things to do, and millions of people died to give me my freedom, so I'm not willing to give it up because I have a 1/1000 chance of being killed by a terrorist.
