Green Meanies Attacking Gold Miners in Nevada


Recommended Posts

Carson City, Nev. (AP) -- Lawyers for the Nevada Mining Association are going before a judge in Carson City to try to block a ballot petition drive aimed at raising taxes on the mining industry. District Judge James Wilson scheduled a 2 p.m. hearing today (Friday) on the bid to keep the initiative off the ballot this fall based on claims it's unconstitutional. A coalition of conservationists and labor leaders are pushing the measure that would tax a bigger share of the mines' profits before -- instead of expenses. They say mines don't pay their fair share in a state with serious budget woes despite producing more gold than any other in the nation. Under their plan, mining companies would have paid an estimated $284 million in state and county taxes in 2008 — more than triple what they actually paid. :*&$*(: - Terry

Your post made me think of this recent UK article I read. (Interesting Psychology of the Green Meanies)

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/7458105/Liars-cheats-thieves-the-terrible-truth-about-the-mean-greens.html

Summary: Many of the Greens turn out to be greedy and even amoral or unethical misers in disguise. They don't want

others making any profits or having any fun in life. They use the Green movement to show others

that they are superior but it is all a fraud. I know of a person in my life who is exactly as they describe.

Always pretending to be above everybody else and always TAKING away from others. He is constantly talking green products

and business whether it makes business sense or not. His real motive is that he enjoys watching others fail and feel pain.

What they must not realize is that when the company goes out of business the State will LOSE all the money its currently getting from that operation on top of jobs. Trying to increase the taxes could very well cause them to lose a good chunk of tax dollars.

The current Regime does not care about jobs, income, or any other form of self sufficiency.

They just want control and more Control of life.

It's like if they can turn off any and all forms of income they would be happy.

Small businesses and mom and pop shops are tax or burdened out of the pitcher.

John,

That's why I call them scum sucking pigs! Their income is derived totally, out of our tax dollars, and what ever they can steal under the table. They have slowly built a government, from our Constitution, that suits their needs and preserves their existance as overseers.

How? Why? You ask! Because, In more recent years, let's say 1800 to the prescent, we have been one idology after another in the name of our Constitution. Even our Declarition of Independance has been twisted to suit the needs of others. that were not even conceived at the time of Its creation. Granted, our Constitution is the foundation of our government, but it's the combination of the Declariation of Indipendence and the Constitution, that was created contemperanious with the period that establishes the continuity between the two documents. To date the controllers have been laughing up their sleeves at us, because they some how believe they are in control of the power of authority of our fore fathers, by the Declaration of Independance and our Independance. Who would have ever believed that Congress could pass a bill that would affect the lives of every citizen in the Country on the word of the speaker of the House, without the visible Vote of every Member of Congress and every Member of the Senate. Something is really wrong in Washington DC, and unfortunately it has infected to the state governments, with all the kick backs, the Federal Govt gives to the states. Those kick backs are your tax dollars!

Homefire,

You are absolutely correct, socialism!

Well spoken Dean. I look at it this way. There are individual freedoms "to" and collective freedoms "from". Each has a proper place in any civilized society. The devil is always in the way a balance is struck. I, as a prospector, obviously value highly my diminishing individual freedom "to" bust my butt and invest my energy, time and money doing what gives me great personal satisfaction. The so-called Green Meanies seem obsessed with protecting "the people" [collectively] from perceived harms caused by me and other individuals. By being good at manipulating political power, they tilt the balance of freedoms further and further away from the individual and closer and closer to the collective.
