______________________________________________

Without further Congressional action, states and localities will begin taxing Internet access as soon as December 11th. A permanent moratorium, the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act, has passed the House with a simple voice vote, demonstrating bipartisan agreement about the importance of a tax-free Internet.

Unfortunately, Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid has refused to introduce the bill to the Senate, preferring to hold out for a remote sales tax increase through the so-called “Marketplace Fairness Act” (MFA), a highly controversial issue. Polling shows Americans overwhelmingly oppose Reid’s scheme to tax online sales, but a large majority of Americans can get behind a permanent continuance of a tax-free Internet.

Nonetheless, in a classic show of divisive politics, Harry Reid has held hostage the freedom of the Internet to pass a tax increase on Americans that buy products online or over the phone.

No American wants to pay more taxes, but taxes on access to the Internet is bad economic growth policy, not just tax policy. Here are the top four reasons why a permanent Internet tax moratorium is necessary to stop this.

1. Keeping the Internet tax free encourages online innovation and digital entrepreneurship. Online investment and tech startups would be disincentivized to the point of obscuring the open and inventive Internet we all know and love. The United States is a global tech leader due to our private development and deregulation of online ventures. A tax moratorium also promotes innovation in cost-defective expansion of broadband access. An Internet access tax would be another cost paid by customers and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that would ultimately turn companies away from creating new developments in the tech space. Taxing Internet access would serve to hamper this industry in much the same way other great American industries (auto, manufacturing) have been hamstrung by government interference.

2. Taxing the Internet would have a harsh impact on lower income families. This is the demographic that a tax-free Internet serves to help and assist in seeking employment. Raising the cost of the Internet through a usage tax would diminish the overall number of users. A recent study predicted that a 10% increase in price can be expected to illicit a 15% reduction in adoption. This negative growth is the antithesis of a free Internet.

3. An Internet access tax would raise the costs of all Internet-related business. Whether it be the price of ISPs the cost of running and maintaining a website, or transaction fees of e-commerce including online shopping, a usage tax would hurt all Internet users in much the same way that rising gasoline prices are felt throughout the economy, raising the cost of using the Internet would be seen by all online participants.

4. Access taxes would be yet another permanent part of the government shakedown. If the moratorium expires, state and local governments will be able to tax access to the Internet. If the ban is allowed to expire and governments start taxing access (which they certainly would), these funds would be built into state budgets with vested interests devoted to keeping these taxes in place. As every previous tax has proven, you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube.

Permanently extending the Internet Tax Freedom Act is a crucial step in safeguarding long-term American Internet prosperity and continued online growth. Americans for Tax Reform, Digital Liberty, and supporters of Internet freedom throughout the country endorse a permanent moratorium on Internet access taxes.​

 

Keystone pipeline: Another Scam In the Making

_______________________________________________________________________

“Dirty Harry” Reid (D) NV, is said to be preparing to bring the Keystone Pipeline bill to the floor of the senate this coming week. No doubt the offices and votes of numerous senators are now in play as the oil money pours in. Every senator wants their piece of the big oil pie. Meanwhile, the lobbyists for the cartels are swarming the District of Criminals like a hoard of voracious ants, consuming one senate vote after another.

DIRTY HARRYIn the public sector, one side is convinced that devastating the environment, contaminating water sheds and supplies, continuous “spills”, chronically leaking pipelines, horrendous air pollution, the theft of land from the states is all just fine as long as they get cheap gas at the pump. They are equally convinced that the relentless drilling and pumping is going to make us less dependent on foreign oil. Most are totally unaware of our agreement with OPEC and fail to realize that as we pump millions of gallons of crude of various grades a day from the thousands of wells currently operating and which we have done aggressively for more than 50 years, constantly increasing the number and size of wells here in the US, we can never seem to escape the “foreign oil” specter.

Civilian national Security force: Another name for the growing police state

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” –Barack Obama,Obama’s Civilian National Security Force

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Domestic terrorism by domestic agencies

The civilian national security force was never intended to be populated by private citizens, but rather, by hired citizens who could be convinced to violate the constitution, and your rights simply by virtue of wearing a tin badge and told they were not constrained by anything as marginal as the law.34043_1thm

By now it should have become obvious, that rather than just using our military to attack us in-country, it is far more effective to militarize various federal and state agencies and have them do the attacking under cover of the agency. Claiming they are defending the law, upholding statutes and regulations, military style swat teams from numerous federal agencies have been steadily attacking, threatening and harassing private citizens. These attacks are nothing less than acts of war perpetrated by the federal agencies on behalf of the federal government.

That terrorist you are so afraid of is your neighbor

“If you see something…Say Something”…I would like to report that the terrorists we need to fear are inside the gates.

They were our neighbors, our family members; now unrecognizable as the transformation from ordinary citizen to badge heavy, agency employed, domestic terrorist takes place. And these people are domestic terrorists by any definition. They do not work for “we the people”, but rather, for corporate interests both foreign and domestic. They will willingly violate the laws you are required to comply with, without blinking an eye. The constitution? Your rights? Not even a consideration.

The Civilian National Security force that Obama was speaking about was created under the fake food safety bill passed in 2010, via “Dirty Harry” Reid’s infamous, unanimous and singular vote. Without objection! Every one of the remaining 99 Senators voluntarily vacated the senate chamber to facilitate “Dirty Harry’s” one unanimous vote. Every other Democrat and Republican senator was in on the deal.

And here’s how “Dirty Harry” pulled off the hostile takeover of agriculture By Fred Kelly Grant | December 21, 2010

Then, on the floor of the Senate in the late afternoon, early evening of Sunday, December 19, Senator Reid called the Recycling bill for a vote and there was no objection from the two other Senators who were on the floor. So by unanimous consent HR 2751 was passed. Then Senator Reid moved for reconsideration with the vote to be tabled. This was granted by the same unanimous consent because there was no other Senator on the floor. Then Senator Reid offered without objection amendment number 4890 which substituted S. 510 the Food Safety Bill for the Recycling Bill. Without objection, then the amendment was passed and the Food Safety Bill had been substituted for the Recycling Bill. Reid moved that the bill be read for the third time and asked for the question. Without objection, the bill passed, and the Food Safety Bill was on the way back to the House.

The result? The militarization of federal agencies in preparation for the coming assaults on family and independent food producers and on private property rights. This bill had little to do with food safety and much to do with assembling the in-country attack units now employed by USDA, FDA, EPA and the notoriously corrupt BLM. More

Why the wild horses and the Bundy’s have to go….

Note:  This information was submitted to PPJ by Louie (the poster).  It shows clearly why the wild horses and the ranchers were eradicated in Nevada.  Bundy, the last holdout in the Gold Butte area of Clark County, Nevada, is holding up big plans made by “Dirty Harry” Reid (D) NV, his son Rory Reid, and his former staffer who now heads up the BLM.  This BLM generated list documents the theft and plunder of the land of the state of Nevada so that a few individuals and their associated corporations could rip & ship everything possible.

And you said good-bye to the wild horses for this………………….

One of the more flagrant uses of words meant to disparage others, is the use of the word anarchist or, anarchy.  In a recent statement by “Dirty” Harry Reid, Senate leader,

“Senate Democrats have shown that we are willing to debate and vote on a wide range of issues, including efforts to improve the Affordable Care Act. We continue to be willing to debate these issues in a calm and rational atmosphere. But the American people will not be extorted by Tea Party anarchists.”

So let’s take a look at the definition of “anarchists and/or anarchy” in The Free Dictionary

an·ar·chy (nr-k)                                                               DIRTY HARRY

n. pl. an·ar·chies

1. Absence of any form of political authority.

2. Political disorder and confusion.

3. Absence of any cohesive principle, such as a common standard or purpose.

Excuse me “Dirty” Harry……..I believe you just described both houses of congress and the current state of our so-called “elected” government. More

Misbranded and adulterated? Thats an understatement

The unknown inert ingredients can be comprised of heavy metals, neurotoxins, mutated bacteria, viruses, fungi or caustic chemicals…literally, anything.  It can be anything as there is no FDA/USDA regulation on what those inert ingredients can or cannot be.”

___________________________________________

All products are presumed to be safe and effective. We make this presumption because the label says they are safe and effective and we know we can trust the FDA to enforce honest labeling. (sarc) 

The label also lists only the active ingredient(s), and these can amount to only a small percentage of the actual contents of the product.  So what is the remaining bulk of the product contents?  You can’t know that.  The inert ingredients, said to be mostly comprised of components necessary to make the active ingredient “active”, do not have to be disclosed because they are proprietary rights, protected trade secrets, none of your damn business.  Basically, chemical product producers can add the dust off their floors to the products you are buying and it matters not.

Besides, the inert ingredients can cause everything from cancer to brain damage and who wants to be held liable for that?  People might want to sue you for intentionally exposing them to hazardous and deadly toxins used in a product that really wasn’t safe and effective, and what would happen to corporate profits if they did? 

Because the known hazards of the products are never fully disclosed we have no idea what we are actually buying and using.  Safe and effective is misleading at the very least and deadly at the very worst.

I wonder why the FDA hasn’t gone after these producers of toxic chemical applications for misbranding and adulteration?    More
