To state the obvious, our spending is out of control. It is equally obvious that anyone who wants America to continue spending the way our government has been for the last few years, simply wants America to commit economic suicide.
Where can we start cutting?
There are some obvious no brainers. With hundreds of billions of dollars in waste, fraud and duplicated services, picking targets should be easy.
Lets start with a real no brainer: The United Nations.
In case you missed this gem, from the UK Guardian:
A United Nations investigator probing discrimination against Native Americans has called on the US government to return some of the land stolen from Indian tribes as a step toward combatting continuing and systemic racial discrimination.
James Anaya, the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, said no member of the US Congress would meet him as he investigated the part played by the government in the considerable difficulties faced by Indian tribes.
Anaya said that in nearly two weeks of visiting Indian reservations, indigenous communities in Alaska and Hawaii, and Native Americans now living in cities, he encountered people who suffered a history of dispossession of their lands and resources, the breakdown of their societies and "numerous instances of outright brutality, all grounded on racial discrimination".
"It's a racial discrimination that they feel is both systemic and also specific instances of ongoing discrimination that is felt at the individual level," he said. Anaya said racism extended from the broad relationship between federal or state governments and tribes down to local issues such as education.
Who the hell asked the United Nations to even look at this issue? Perhaps they should spend some time investigating Iran’s atrocities or the way Islamists persecute non-Muslims throughout the Middle East.
I will say, for the first time in my life I am proud of Congress, since no one from that body would meet with this clown.
Why are we even spending money on the United Nations? Can anyone name one good thing the United Nations has done recently? For FY2012, the estimated cost of the United Nations to the United States is almost $4 billion. That is $4 billion in waste.
The United States pays for the privilege of hosting a bunch of radical leftists and America hating Islamists and what do we get for this?
Not a damn thing.
Our economy is a train wreck, heading at full speed off of a cliff. Cutting $4 billion from the budget for the United Nations won’t stop the train wreck, but it is a great place to start.
You have forgotten? The UN is in the process of taking over our Country...BO's plan, to transform America..NWO
Jerks all of them have to be stopped.
Here's another 4 Billion that can be saved virtually instantly. Stop the IRS from paying child tax credits to illegal aliens for kids that are living in Mexico. In many cases, these kids are nieces and nephews of these illegals and have never been in the U.S.
Yes, that's right, Obama is signing into legislation against congress that the UN has the say in when we go to war, especially Russia and China.
See my remarks below and go to the web sites showing how Agenda 21 (a treaty signed by Clinton with the UN in 1994) - a UN plan has been being implemented right under your nose for 20 years - is about to ruin this country, permanently, unless we stop it. See the sites I listed in a reply to Joe Gomez, just below.
Ron, I know that, do you really think Obama does or even cares?! I watched a video of Dick Morris saying that Obama is going to sign a treaty with the UN that we can only go to war if they decide and that includes Russia and China and that he's going against Congress. I will find it and post it.
Here is the link Ronald.
Ronald, where have you been for the last almost four years? Constitution? Hey he has all but
crapped in the middle of it.. He has not followed that document since day one. You keep falling back on
that and if you can tell us how to stop him, please do. Words are all I hear...
I don't want this anymore than anyone else here, but hey fella its coming right at us all.
I love your word compliance...This man has used his executive pen to all but wipe the constitution
out. And the Congress, what have they done to stop any of it...NOTHING....
Oh, another executive order, gee how many does that make?
UN is nothing but a terrorist organization. Defund it not, Send then all packing for their homeland where they can live off the backs of their own people. We'll see how long their people will support their lavish lifestyles they've enjoyed here in America.
While sending these crooks back to their homelands, send some of the Democrats like Reid and Pelosi packing with no return address too. Let the NU set up base in Greece
Unfortunately, Clinton signed a treay with the UN in 1994, after it was agreed to in 1992 in Rio. This is an ad for contributions, but a great overview. https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&shva=1#inbox/1371d88f8b8a5510
The following is a short list of sights that will give a great overview. It was sent to a Congressional candidate I met at a fundraiser who had never even heard of Agenda 21. Everyone in the country better educate themselves on this issue, or we will be controlled by the UN and Soros.
You will see immediately, the severity of the unconstitutional acts being committed by cities across the country, every day, as they slowly implement this long range plan. It is truly unbelievable. Not to mention the imminent danger of ending our country as we know it. I know this is surprising, but I do not make such statements lightly, particularly to a Congressional candidate..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GykzQWlXJs&feature=related This is the one I urge you to watch at least five minutes. That's all it will take to get your attention.
I included this site, because it is a very succinct article, just one page long, about the entire plan. A good overview.
This presentation is by a liberal democrat. I wanted you to know that there is a bi-partisan effort to stop this extremely dangerous, subversive attack against our country, that has been building momentum for many years. Unfortunately, it is nearing fruition, and must be stopped. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page to see her YouTube presentation.
Ron, go here to read an excellent overview of the entire subject I just found by Googling. Best one I have ever read. I did not learn of Agenda 21 until a Tea Party meeting here in Atlanta, last summer.
What is this about Obama putting all of the property in the US as collateral to China? That includes our homes, our property etc.. I don't recall allowing him to use my home as collateral, did you? This man has done things that most of us should be heading for DC right now.
This thing in the W.H. is already conducting business as DICTATOR.... Not a soul is stopping him.. Do you know why? Where is Congress?
