Joke of the Day – World Health Organization

According to this story (from FOXNews.com), the World Health Organization, a tentacle of the hideously corrupt and ineffective United Nations, is pushing ahead with a plan to impose $Billions in taxes on the Internet and other industries to fund “research, development, production and distribution of medicines around the world.” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Please, make it stop!

The World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations’ public health arm, is moving full speed ahead with a controversial plan to impose global consumer taxes on such things as Internet activity and everyday financial transactions like paying bills online — while its spending soars and its own financial house is in disarray.

The aim of its taxing plans is to raise “tens of billions” of dollars for WHO that would be used to radically reorganize the research, development, production and distribution of medicines around the world, with greater emphasis on drugs for communicable diseases in poor countries.

The irony is that the WHO push to take a huge bite out of global consumers comes as the organization is having a management crisis of its own, juggling finances, failing to use its current resources efficiently, or keep its costs under control — and it doesn’t expect to show positive results in managing those challenges until a year from now, at the earliest.

Fox News initially reported last January on the “suite of proposals” for “new and innovative sources of funding,” prepared by a 25-member panel of medical experts, academics and health care bureaucrats, when it was presented of a meeting of WHO’s 34-member Executive Board in Geneva.

Now the proposals are headed for the four-day annual meeting of the 193-member World Health Assembly, WHO’s chief legislative organ, which begins in Geneva on May 17.

Please tell me by what authority can WHO or the UN impose taxes on consumers – anywhere? Is there any reason whatsoever that justifies the existence of the UN? If there was even a shred of common sense in our government we would be packing up the UN and sending it to Brussels or Amsterdam where it belongs. What a f**king joke!

This one’s for you, UN and WHO:
