How Extinction Rebellion 168 climate change zealots - incl. a baronet's Cambridge-educated granddaughter - are paid £400 a week to bring mayhem to our streets. Tory MP called on #HMRC to launch an immediate investigation into the XR tax affairs
mol.im/a/7566515
/1.
Paid XR activists who call for collective guilt & punitive #taxes on the western #taxpayer are enabling new breed of green capitalism, that make select few fabulously rich, while the rest of us choke down meatless hamburgers & pay our #politicians to tax us into oblivion
/2.
Climate Mobilization’s call to action has also managed to unite leftists & anti-capitalists with the global elite. Extinction Rebellion’s call for “net zero” atmospheric carbon is shared by The World Bank, and a host of neoliberal think-tanks & financiers

1/15 This race reminds me of the rule in boxing, a split decision goes to the champ. That's how Biden has stayed on top, plus he's authentic both in screw ups and in sincere moments such as talking about the loss of his wife/kids. #ABCDemDebate #joebiden beta.washingtonpost.com/politics/biden…
2/ Elizabeth Warren's strength is her wonky, thoughtful "I'm not a typical Washington politician" and "I have a plan for that". Dodging the tax question makes her a typical Washington politician. #ewarren #ABCDemDebate #taxes theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
3/ Sanders seems incapable of modulating his speech beyond shouting and haranguing. It was interesting, however, that he finally was willing to abandon Venezuelan President Maduro. #berniesanders #venezuela #ABCDemDebate cbsnews.com/news/bernie-sa…

THREAD - Étant arrivé au terme de la lecture de cet excellent livre d’Agnès Verdier-Molinié que je vous recommande vivement, j’ai décidé de partager avec vous les grandes lignes, les passages les plus marquants (les plus révoltants)... #EnMarcheVersLImmobilisme 🚶🏼‍♂️
En guise d’introduction, rappelons que la France est
❌ championne d’Europe de la pression fiscale et de la dépense publique avec un taux de prélèvements obligatoires s’établissant à 45%.
❌ Le déficit commercial est de 60 milliards d’€.
❌ Nous avons toujours 2219 Mds de dette.
Notre dette fait partie des plus élevées au monde avec 97% du PIB en 2017.
« Nous gardons aussi les médailles d’or du plus grand nombre d’élus, du plus grand nombre d’agents publics « à vie », les plus chers d’Europe avec le temps de travail le plus faible. »

#Tolstoy & #MMT connection

In 1886, great Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy published a non-fiction piece called 'What Then Must We Do?'.

There is a chapter on #money, which in effect sounds very much familiar and close to the #MMT motto -- #taxes-drive-money.

1/4
Tolstoy: "Any money is getting accepted between people only when they are forcefully demanded to be delivered by everybody. When every person needs money to redeem herself/himself from violence, only then money will obtain stable exchange value..."

2/4 #Tolstoy & #MMT connection
Tolstoy (cont'd): "... And what is demanded by the government [to be delivered by people as payment of taxes, fees, etc] obtains value, not what is convenient for exchange."

Bueno he leído en varios lados que eliminar la compensación universal es casi la panacea de la recaudación fiscal.
#impuestos #taxes #SAT #shcp

La verdad que no, de hecho a @CarlosUrzuaSHCP de la @Hacienda_Mexico le engañó quién le vendió esa idea.
1. La compensación es una forma de extinción de las obligaciones, así tal cual. Es decir, si un amigo te debe algo y al mismo tiempo tu le debes algo, compensan la deuda y ya.

2. Eso mismo es a nivel fiscal, solo que acá se trata de pagar un tributo a cargo con tu saldo a favor.
Es decir, tu pagas de más o por algún mecanismo del impuesto el fisco te debe dinero y ese dinero puedes si quieres pedirlo en devolución, o bien, compensarlo con tú adeudo en otro impuesto.

Ten #MMT tips to remember on #TaxDay:
1. Federal #taxes don't fund federal spending, so let's #decouple these two important tools.
2. Taxes offset #Government spending.
3. It's a matter of #logic: #dollars must be spent into existence (by the Gov) first, in order for us to use some of those $ to pay taxes
4. #Taxing for #revenue is for local states/municipalities, not the #sovereign issuer of the #currency.
5. Taxing excessive wealth protects #democracy from #Oligarchy and protects us from abusive market power
6. Taxing #pollution & #speculation to reduce such activities, not to "fund" #healthcare and #education.

#LoveLettersToAlberta This is from the heart to #Alberta, not a journalist, so it's kinda sloppy. I'm disabled so I have lots of time to research. I'm white (an accident of birth, so I'm not special) and 6th generation Canadian. 1
Dear Alberta, 350,000 families in #Ontario whose breadwinner lost their well-paying jobs in manufacturing know how you feel with the energy business going through rough times. Hubby was a victim. 2
Some jobs went to the USA to states where they have "Right To Work for Peanuts". Some went to little brown people who aren't immigrants. The jobs went to their country. 3

1/ Yesterday, we published a story on how Congress may be about to ban the government from offering free online tax filing for all.

In response, folks around the world took the opportunity to brag about how much easier they have it.
👇 👇 👇
2/ Take Japan for example, where most employees don’t even have to file a tax return.

So, here are all the other places it’s likely cheaper (and easier) to file your taxes:
3/ (By the way, in the US you have @TurboTax @Intuit @HRBlock + others to thank for the legislation. They spent a combined $6.6 million last year lobbying on the issue.)

(Also, if you don’t see your country on this list, by all means: pile on.)

This is a great, thought-provoking speech by #Draghi, on European sovereignty. Though I disagree with some parts, the final part on “rules vs. institutions” is excellent. A thread. ecb.europa.eu/press/key/date…
Draghi starts out with the alleged conflict between EU membership and #sovereignty, which is crucial to understand the populism of #Brexit, Le Pen et al. He says: no conflict at all, to the contrary.
“True #sovereignty is reflected not in the power of making laws – as a legal definition would have it – but in the ability to control #outcomes … The ability to make independent decisions does not guarantee countries such control,” says Draghi.

1) @RealDonaldTrump @WhiteHouse @POTUS
#QAnon post No. 2706...
#Q dropped 3 images & text aimed at personnel engaged in an overseas [surveillance?] operation. These images are from Shanghai time which is 13 hrs ahead of EST. At this time "Track 7B-DS' (7 B=targets? Deep State?)
2) The first drop was missing #Q's tripcode which set off #Anons. This 2nd drop has it added , confirming the first drop & is the reply. The clock shows. a time which is 4min prior to the drops. This is clearly #China. Seems we must have permission to be doing this op.
3) The agenda, if nothing else was to let the targets know there are being watched. If this is a continuum of the recent LA OP, there may have been another takedown. Active tracking ensues on 3 targets. These aren't #Anon image sets, so much as data sets released for one of #Q's

1/ I just finished reading #SovereignIndividual. I think I first heard about it when @lopp was on the @TFTC21 podcast, and has been referenced a lot lately by @pierre_rochard and @MustStopMurad
2/ It is an eye-opening read but is not meant for everyone. It gives an unemotional and unapologetic economic outlook at how unsustainable our current government structure is. This thread is an attempt to tell the story through summaries and (mostly) quotes:
3/ Part 1 #Taxes
“Consider the definition of a racketeer as someone who creates a threat and then charges for its reduction. Governments’ provision of protection, by this standard, often qualifies as racketeering.” - Charles Tilly

Let me give you a #TruthSummary for every corporate media story for the last week and for the next 2 weeks bar some new unforseen crisis:
1. There are no such thing as #TrumpTariffs
Art 1 sec 2 cl 3 delegates that power to Congress
Trump Tariffs are a fiction created by illegal legislation and false policies
Media, pundits, & politicians need to shut up about Trump Tariffs & start talkg about #CongressionalTariffs
2. #Kavanaugh will not be the "death of womens rights" no matter what @SenFeinstein says. Kavanaugh will not be king and for goodness sakes, supports #Obamacare!!

Many people are too consume with the idea of owning a plot of land so sometimes feel too elated to do due verifications before making payment. In this thread, i will tell you how a survey plan search, an essential land check can save you from land trouble. THREAD👇👇👇
Before i go ahead, it is essential we understand what a survey plan means: A #Survey plan is a document that measures the boundary of a parcel of land to give an accurate measurement and description of that land #RealEstate #LandDebate
The people that handle #Survey issues are Surveyors and they are regulated by the office of the Surveyor general in #Lagos as it relates to survey issues in Lagos. #RealEstate
