The UN is a worthless entity, intent on milking money from US taxpayers, and all the while attempting to usurp our freedoms. Disband them and the money could be used to care for America...first.

EXACTLY!

Get the hell out of the U.N., stop all funding.

This makes me Sick. After my bills our paid for the month we have 336.00 .to live on.

Joey, you got $36.00 more than me after my bills are paid, but fear not, I don't want your money. I want OUR money back from the UN. What have they done for the USA, or for that matter, what have they done...period?

Yes Sherman Iam not asking for anything .And iam not the top wage earner.And Iam voting for MITT.

Remember, something is not right, the super wealthy, pay 50% less tax than I do, what's the story here. Can someone tell me. BB
I agree this sucks, so does obummer, but anyone know about Koch brothers, I was justing reading bout them, first all they are Jews, #2. they have been putting money into Political action comittees, PAC's. $100 million dollars or more, to keep the very wealthy tax cut, and keep the high tax on the poor and us, the middle classes, they are buying these congress people to benefit themselves with big federal contracts if there people get elected, they get lots richer, why else would they dump $100 million dollers into PAC's .

Maybe you should read up on George Soros, how much does he give to obumma, the dems, all the libs. Maybe the rich are in a lower tax bracket, but I am sure they are still paying millions more then you are. Remember 47% of the people don't pay any taxes, so thats an even lower tax bracket.

They are paying millions more than you and I, don't you get it man, they are paying 50% less than me, a guy who makes $10 million still walks away with 8.6 million, I make $ 150,000' I walk away with 108,000, If the multi millionaire was taxed like me he'd walk away with 7.2 million, not bad . Get it yet? 7.2 million You may say, hey, he earned it well so did I, I may have worked harder than some of those greedy SOB's, the past president of United Health Care made 110 million dollars in 2009, that's obscene, he's a pig, health care is a health issue in which we pay through the nose, they do need reform. BB

So what, it is their money, why is the government giving out free cell phones, giving money to all these countries that hate us, wasting money on the EPA, wasting money on green companies, wasting money on the lazy people on welfare. Here a question for you, do you take any write offs on your taxes? If you do then, you to are not paying your fair share. There are legal deductions you can use and the rich use them, so what. Even if there was a flat tax, I think you would still cry " the rich don't pay a fair share"

So what it's their money, who are you speaking of? The weathy? Do you like paying what you do in taxes? I don't like paying what i do but I have to. Well so what, it's my money, I earned my money but I pay 50% less than the super wealthy, get it. I take some deductions but it is small percent compared to what I contribute. I'll say it again , " the rich don't pay their fair share". Many super wealthy start foundations, some of which are good, they have their own museum and write it off, it goes on, remember....... The super wealthy pay 50% less than me, 50% less. Ah, I figured it out, you must make over 10 million a year, you like paying 50% less than me. Greed i guess. Ok whatever. BB

ALERT ALERT

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
