IMF Proposes $1.40 A Gallon Gas Tax On US Drivers


The national average for a gallon of gasoline is currently at $3.65. On top of that sky-high price, the International Monetary Fund has now proposed that the U.S. should impose a tax of $1.40 per gallon in order to pay for social programs around the world and help the environment.

    Of course they want US to pay for everything. Tough. IMF can stuff it where the moon don’t shine. Oh and take the UN with you.

    • Sueychop

      The UN already owns you.

    IMF = International Marxist Fund

    • Eileen Kuch

      IMF = International Marxist Fund; great description, docdave1; I totally agree. Now, we can follow Iceland’s courageous and brilliant moves; i.e., throw out our Zionist-controlled government, dismantle the “Federal Reserve”, and arrest all the banksters. If the Icelanders can do this, so can we. All it takes is courage and intelligence.

    Is this a April Fools joke?????

    • texaschris

      Well, it’s fools joking, that’s for damned sure.

  • Michael P. Shipley

    I have an idea, why don’t we nuke the IMF. That will make them pay for fucking with us.

    • guest

      Better yet, sic the drones on THEM, instead of all the innocent civilians abroad!


    Who cares what the IMF thinks.

    • Sueychop

      You’ll care real soon when you wake up to realize they’re already subsumed the U.S. into the world global re-alignment (UN).

      The IMF is where a great deal of your taxes go! They create a problem
      for a country financially. This can be done many ways. They use their
      power and money to push politicians to vote for war, wasteful spending,
      etc. When the country is broke, they say, “Hey, we can loan you the
      money”. They loan the cash at rates no smart person would agree to, and the country is in debt for the next 100+ yrs. You pay taxes for everything you earn, buy, or sell. The average American gives their income from 107 days of work each year to taxes! 3 1/2 mos. of the year if worked with no weekends just to pay what is mostly interest your masters. YOU ARE A SLAVE! That is why you should care! The best slave is the one who believes himself to be free!

    The IMF, UN, and all other international bodies are not ruling bodies and they especially do not tell the US what to do. While I am not for total isolation, it’s about time we pulled out of a lot of these organizations and took care of ourselves first. Then, once we have hunger, abuse, health care, unemployment, and poverty solved here first, then we should think about spreading those philosophies to others… But not until we are taken care of!!

    • TylerDurden0xb

      That would be heading in the wrong direction that has been pre-determined for the US. The UN and IMF will slowly but steadily pass more and more “laws” (wtf that means) that the US Congress will support until the states’ rights are non-existent…much like they already are. The US is completely f..cked.

  • action hero

    yeah, ain’t no April fool today.

  • Mark of the Wild West

    Tax the IMF instead…

  • Phil MaCrackin

    IMHO you missed it. The IMF has to raise as much capital as possible to compete with the newly formed BRICS. No welfare…economic warfare.

  • Rodney

    Open message to the IMF –

    Get STUFFED.

  • Italics Mine

    So, we’re not only the Policemen of the world; but the welfare agents as well.

    The outcry would be to loud for that to go through, so look for this in another way under the table. Global warming and Chem Trails go hand in hand so watch this terrible weather be blamed on the U.S. and a heavy tax pushed on the public to fix the problem. Stop the Chem Trails and watch the weather return to normal. If you want to help the environment lets get those doing the spraying to stop. You can turn on your TV and see those trails in commercials and other programs worldwide.

    I will find a way to use magnetics or hydrogen as my fuel.
    Or, I will pedal….life will move just a bit more slowly.
    I will NEVER pay a fuel tax to the IMF or UN…ignore them, their agenda is to wreck America first.

  • Peter Paul

    Those IMF bastards, along with the UN, need to stay out of American economics or there will be an uprising against foreign interference

  • kirk

    another bureaucratic ‘solution': more taxes on u. s. citizens to pay for the world. don’t laugh at the suggestion until you have thought about the ‘quality’ of amerikan leadership and whether, or not, this ‘leadership’ is averse to taxation.

    we’ve been screwed by our domestic bureaucrats for decades. will we now let the international bureaucrats screw us, too?

  • TylerDurden0xb

    These people are seriously out of their f’ing minds but I’m sure the politicians in DC will be fine voting for it.

  • James Kroeper

    Incremently is how this and other foul deeds are foisted upon us.

    “IMF Proposes $1.40 A Gallon Gas Tax on U.S. Drivers.”

    U.S. Drivers Propose IMF Stick it Where the Sun Don’t Shine…

  • cecilhenry

    The problem is:

    “Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, White Countries for Everyone!! NO!”

    Multiculturalism is worse than murder. It is worse than mass murder, being akin to genocide.

    Whites have become the ultimate refugees, lost at home, refugees in their own nations, wanderers in their own cities.

    The citizen of the first world often finds that he seems to belong less in his own country than the refugees flooding it.

    DIVERSITY is just a codeword for anti-white. More diverse = less white.

    As a matter of economic fact: the price of gas in the US DOES NOT reflect environmental damage done from start to end. In the 1980s and 1990s, it was found that tens of thousands of gas stations in the US leaked. For all of you nutters who want to cut everything, including the EPA budget, how do you handle the bio-remediation of those properties? By dumping the soil in New Jersey? Furthermore, one cannot rationalize, in any way shape or form (other than pure greed and selfishness), a nation that represents less than 9% of earth’s population consuming at least 25% of its energy resources. You could have a solid argument 50 years ago when we manufactured a significant percentage of the worlds goods, but today??? Yes, no question, the IMF is horrendously run. Yes, India and China have been laughing at us for years. That said, Americans still live in a la-la land. Finding more fuel in the US is not the answer long term. Reducing one’s usage is the only mathematical solution over the next 100 years.

    • TrevorLyman

      I’m not sure the details of the case you’re pointing to but I do know that you deal with environmental damage through the courts and through property rights.

      But now that you’re on the topic of the EPA lets remember that is was the “do good nutters” of the EPA who came up with the bright idea to tell off-shore drillers they had to move their drill rigs into deeper waters to “protect the environment”. So they did, and because of that they drilled so deep that when their drill site failed and began dumping incredible amounts of crude oil into the ocean.. it was too deep for them to stop the leak! And as we all know BP’s inability to stop the flow of oil resulted in the WORST OIL SPILL IN HISTORY. So with that under their belt the EPA has already cost dearly. Really they can never make up for it.

      Most of what the EPA does backfires anyway. Did you know that when the EPA designates an animal as endangered and if that animal finds it’s way on to your property that your property loses massive amounts of value because of the government regulations the EPA places on your property? So what has been the result? Land owners shoot and kill endangered species on their property before anyone finds out they are there. Look it up.

      As for greed why don’t we stop going to war for oil companies and stop subsidizing them as well? And why is hemp illegal? Hemp creates 4 times the ethanol per acre over corn, yet the government subsidizes corn and makes hemp illegal? Talk about a wasted renewable energy source! No, more government is NOT the answer.

      If you just let oil cost what it would cost in a real free makret it’s price would go up high enough that it would spur companies to create competitive sources of renewable energy. But that doesn’t happen because the government is too busy protecting big oil companies.

      As for manufacturing I’d say we moved from factories to computers in terms of energy consumption, and that’s a good thing. Or do you think we should we shut down the computers?

      Let the free market work and get out of the way. THAT is going to produce the best results.
