White House Economic Adviser: ‘We Need a Global Minimum Tax’ | The Weekly Standard

by on February 14, 2012

We need a White House resident who would absolutely fire a clown like that. Global tax? Sounds like a step toward one world government and 6-6-6. Absolutely scary such a suggestion is coming from America.

How about a mantra from American History- “no work, no food.” John Smith…Jamestown…anybody?…anybody?… How about the 45% of non-federal taxpaing freeloaders start providing value instead of devouring government services and taxpayer funds?

  1. This is an issue of work for hire. Was copyright set in the rcatcnot and agreement? If you wrote that many articles for that little money (you were ripped off from the very beginning, dear, so the rest is just shall I say typical and what could you expect from those stealing from you already), and if copyright wasn’t included in the agreement, then you are stuck as you gave them the articles for money. Without clarity, it could be argued that they bought the content exclusively to do with what they will. Depending upon what is in writing, you may have no claim other than failure to comply with your request for acknowledgment and linkage. You can’t scream copyright unless it was set in the terms of the agreement. Welcome to the real world of writing. NEVER give away your work like that as it hurts those of us who depend upon writing to pay our bills. We compete against you, who give their work away for practically nothing. NEVER give away your work, paid or otherwise, without clear copyright agreements and a method of arbitration set, so you can have an avenue to deal with such disputes. You shot yourself in the foot when you made this agreement, it seems, so this might have to be a lessons learned.Find the mailing address and write them a formal letter. Contact your attorney, or find one, for consultation if this really gets you angry. Get an injunction that stops them from publishing the rest of your articles as they did not comply with your agreement.As heartbreaking as this is, this is just a day in the life of a writer who doesn’t get a good agreement in hand before handing over their work. I’m sorry, but I’ve been through this many times, and I work hard to teach others not to suffer as I have for making these same mistakes. Be wiser, but life goes on. And never do this again.
