This came from rawles site..... SurvivalBlog.com The Most Important Story the MSM, Fox News, Glenn Beck and Others Will Not Cover 13:57 by Administrator. Filed under: Whatever by John Galt Sunday, March 21, 2010 During all of the confusion and turmoil erupting inside the United States with the debate over so-called “health care reform” events around our nation and world wide continue to move forward. A small news story in Europe though caught my attention and sent up the warning signal, or flare of fire into the night sky, that every one of my readers had best pay attention to. Of call places, it was Agence-Presse Francais (AFP) who posted the story innocently enough on a Saturday afternoon and I found it in The Australian while reading their Sunday business section last night. The headline sounds logical enough as does the reasoning behind the taxation proposals: Greece targets church in massive tax grab The story provides a road map for America’s socialist future. Let’s review the highlights from this story: 1. A new draft bill to be tabled in parliament next week imposes a 20 per cent tax on the Orthodox church’s real estate income, reportedly worth over 10 million euros ($14.8 million) a year. In the United States, this will be used to attack the large, organized churches, especially those institutions involved in political activities. This process was used in Mussolini’s Italy with the alliance with the Vatican to eradicate or force underground any competition to the Catholic Church. The same happened in Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Poland, etc. throughout history. The United States will be the model to seize and tax the assets of those churches which do not conform to the nationalist ideology of Marxist theology and to silence the opposition of groups like the Christian Coalition, etc. The reply you will here is “it can’t happen here” but we all now know better. 2. It also outlaws all business transactions of more than 1500 euros ($2220) conducted in cash, prescribing instead the use of credit cards and urging consumers to collect receipts in an effort to stamp out tax evasion that costs the state an estimated 10 billion euros ($14.8 billion) a year. The I.R.S. will insist and win via pressures on our bond market and stagnant economy that they need the ability to restrict the use of cash in business transactions. As I have said on these pages throughout the years and many other there is a drive to move our economic model to a cashless society and this will be the next to the last final step in doing so. The introduction of the EBT benefit cards was to condition the lower economic class to the idea of a cashless society and it has been a resounding success, as it has been renamed from the stigmatic “Food Stamp” program to the catchier, less demeaning “SNAP” benefit system. The psychological modeling was completed when we saw rappers and singers dancing through coffee shops and nurseries on our television screens swiping their VISA cards to conduct business in a rapid manner. Anyone who has stood in line behind a stoner or 86 year old knows that the VISA commercial is complete and utter nonsense. As the idea of reducing the size of cash transactions expands, American society will rapidly become acclimated to the banning of cash and financial privacy which ultimately will lead to cash transactions being limited to $20 or less in the long run. Got Gold or Silver? 3. It also introduces income checks for owners of yachts, private planes and jets, swimming pools and other luxury items. Which will soon lead to income checks for you and I when we attempt to buy a surround sound system, laptop, cell phone or new vehicle. “But that only applies to the super rich and in many cases that includes drug dealers,” will be the retort of the average sheeple. And as the price drops as to what requires income verification and ultimately permission from the I.R.S. the conditioning program will be complete. Any purchase made for more than $300 to $500 will end up requiring a bureaucrat or computer program to validate that you are current on your taxes and that all preconditions for ownership have been met. Gee, most firearms are $300-$500. Interesting how that would impact our freedoms, isn’t it? This story is huge. It is not big because of the “where” of the story but the meat of it. If anyone of my readers thinks this will not happen here, you are not paying attention. The history of what has happened in the world dictates that a desperate society requires drastic courses of action. The fact that our society is bankrupt, morally and financially, puts the United States on the glide path for these draconian impositions to become reality.
